Chapter 1: prologue
It's such a treasure when something Awesome and Long gets posted! I was thrilled to start reading last night, and will be even more thrilled as you post the last several chapters.
It took some suspension of disbelief to get into the AU, especially Jim not being in command. It's hard to wrap my mind around him as a subordinate, and likewise Spock as a consummate leader. But it's working for me now (I'm in the middle of Chap 4). The characterization is great, and I, too, love a smart, savvy Kirk. Well-adjusted!Spock also gets me going, so I like that too.
Very well done, and thank you for brightening my baby's naptimes (while I'm nursing him to sleep or bouncing him in the hammock, there is NOTHING to do but read fic on my phone.) You ROCK!Author's Response:
I feel the same way about other people's long fics; there aren't enough of them out there! Glad I could provide some 'downtime' entertainment (I envy your hammock). Strangely, I'm not much of an AU reader myself, but it was part of the specific request for this fic, and I have to say that it took me a little while to envision it myself. As I was in the process of writing it, I had to keep reminding myself that Spock outranked Kirk, because one get's so used to thinking of them in canon terms ;)
