Chapter 2: Chapter 2
This chapter is really interesting. There are many conflicting ideas in it. First the emotionless way the humans are treating Spock and the caring way the Vulcan healer is treating him. I never read this spin on the subject before. Normally the Vulcan healer is always this stoic, heartless individual that despises Spock because of his human heritage. This was an interesting spin!
Second the relationship between Spock and Kirk. It's so difficult for the two of them because of the time they simply do not have. My heart bleeds for Spock who will feel so alone again. How should he ever recover his memories if he is seperated from his bond mate and consequently doesn't feel comfortable enough to start un-blocking his barriers?
Hopefully the environment of other Vulcans will be able to help him :( . Kirk is really ambigous. On one hand I can understand that everything is very hard for him and he has to be strong for the both of them. On the other hand he seems sometimes detached from Spock and as if he blames him for blocking the memories. As if he's impatient with him...
One can feel, that not only Spock is his love but space is too. Normally the two complement each other perfectly but in this case this divided love is damagin...
On another note: Who were these two men following Spock and Kirk? What did they want? ... huh...
*whisper* I love this innocent Spock. He's so cuteAuthor's Response:
Thanks for your review. You brought into focus some things in my story that i hadn't been aware of. It's funny how the creative process works, isn't it? I have had some unpleasant dealings with agencies that have a perception of what people are that does not necessarily do them justice, and I think some of that has bled in here. And I think there are some surprises in your future for Sarden, the Vulcan healer, too. Kirk, too, does have some ambivalence, too, toward Spock. I have seen this in families who are dealing with someone who is ill - wanting to help but sometimes being frustrated by behaviors or actions. More on the mysterious strangers later. And I'm glad you love this innocent Spock. I thought of him like that, and the entire story sprung from that image. Thanks for reading and your thoughtful reviews.
