Yay, totally forgot this story existed, it's been so long since an update.  I love your smart, competent Kirk.  And I'm excited that you haven't forgotten The Edge as well.

You are so good, I love all your characters' voices.  Please write more stories.

Spice by eimeo Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 346]
Summary:

It’s a question of biology. Vulcan biology.

The problem with falling in love with a member of an insanely private species is that it just might take you the best part of a five year mission to work out that the feelings are requited. And then you might discover that he’s already decided that the two of you can never be together.

And what are you supposed to do if he won’t tell you why?

~*~

Written as a response to T'Lara’s ingenious challenge, which is noted when it shows up in-text. Huge thanks to my fantastic betas Frodolass, penguin_attie and miloowen for being, well, fantastic. Any mistakes that remain are all mine.

This is the story that I check several times a day for updates.  I love your other works as well, but this story makes my chest tighten with the angst.



Author's Response:

YAY! Thank you!! I know I haven't updated in a while, but it's not for having abandoned the fic, I promise: I've been working away at it pretty much constantly, because the next few chapters kind of have to be written as a block to make sure they hang together. Hurray for angst love! I'm partial to it myself (can you tell? XD)

Very nice!  Your first fanfic?  You seem very comfortable with the characters' voices--are you hopefully working on something long and angsty?

Yay, a happy ending, I wasn't sure it was going to happen. I love your writing style, all the lovely complex sentences.  I love your character voices, especially Kirk's, his growth thru the two stories I think is even more impressive than Spock's. Now that you're done, I going to reread them both back-to-back.   I can't wait to see what you write next!



Author's Response:

How lovely you are and thank you so much for the comment re Kirk, as I'm a Kirk fan so it's much appreciated.  And I'm hopelessly flattered that you want to reread them...  thank you again and take care.

Beside the Emerald Seas by Rae Trail Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 8]
Summary:

The story helps to introduce that Jim and Spock have kids, and that kids are not an impediment, and that Jim will ALWAYS find the weirdest thing going to disrupt his life...

Unlike the other stories in this series, this is the first time Emerald has been posted online.

Thanks!  Nice to finally read this, after all these years.

 



Author's Response:

Well, thank you too! I'm sorry that I made you wait - I had an agreement with the printzine for a few years, and then I was living in the middle east, so that made it all kind of hard... but there it is now!

Warmest regards, Rae

Yay, I've been looking for this story for two years, saw it on so many rec lists.  Are you not writing fic anymore? I like your Kirk voice.



Author's Response:

Wow, thanks so much for looking.

I have been living in a part of the world that frowns on this kind of literature - it's highly illegal - so I haven't been publishing anything for almost ten years. I have been writing for my own pleasure. Now, with the advent of VPNs that can be signed up to by email, I am able to participate again. I plan to write a bit in Reboot, and also in some other fandoms.

You really flatter me, and Thanks! for writing back.

Best, Rae

Ha, slash botany!  I have a male Z. roezlii, growing in a tropical conservatory. But I didn't know about the sperm. I wonder if we should put that on the interpretive label.  We also had a titan arum bloom last year. And I've eaten at Govinda's. I wonder if we're neighbors....

Looking forward to the ratings change:)



Author's Response:

This is the danger in 'write what you know'. If you're not careful, you might get pulled out of the closet as a fanfic writer! I would be forever disgraced!

But I think you should put the sperm fact on the label, because – as anyone in advertising could tell you - Sex Cells!  Hahaha . . . oh god I'm sorry. Old joke.

Courting My Captain by drarroway Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 13]
Summary:

When you don’t have time for a real summer vacation you imaginize a virtual “mindcation”.  This is it.  It is TOS (only Pike has been borrowed from the reboot), just barely still within the boundaries of pre-K/S (or not), and it is a stand-alone, not related to any of my previous stories.  Let me know if you still enjoy old school TOS stories; if not, I can happily retire into my own skull.  I’ve pretty much run out of story ideas anyway, though suggestions are welcome.

 

(If you would like the whole aural experience, I enjoy putting words to music because music is the strongest emotive device.  I have annotated accordingly in some places.)
