Bio:

I started writing K/S when I was about 13, in 1974. I had grown up watching TOS as it came out, and I always loved writing, so when adolescence hit, it was only natural to start seeing my old friends as sexual people.

I didn't live anywhere that fanfic was prominent, or even available. However, the internet, fantastically, was born. In around 1998 I realized I wasn't alone in the universe, and started lurking on ASCEM. In 1999 I put up my first fanfic, "The Vacation". A fellow fen, Greywolf the Wanderer, wrote a sequel, and I was launched.

I had thirty or so stories on ASCEM, plus miscellaneous bits like TSU contributions, GTKYs and Rude Persons. Then, life required me to leave the Caribbean and move to the Middle East, a place devoid of most fun practices, I have found. I still wrote for my own fun, but publishing was completely illegal.

Then some fantastically clever person invented the VPN. Not a few weeks after I figured that out, I was shocked to receive a message from Amanda Warrington, who sent a brave email asking if I was the Rae who wrote k/s.

I am forever grateful to her for her courage in reaching out, and her incredible help in posting my stories. The world is a better place, thanks to her... for me, and probably for others. I think I'll start writing again!

I still live in the Middle East but I now live in hope.

That was every bit as fantastic this time, as when you let me read it eleven years ago. I am completely overwhelmed by it again - the whole slow opening of Spock is just fantastic. Thank you for writing this and for sharing it.

Best, Rae

Hey! Nice story. I love Spock when he's being unaware, it's such a contrast for him between his emotions and his intelligence. And your Jim is spot on.

Thanks for writing.

Rae

Wow, I'm horribly behind responses.  Thank you so much for this detailed comment - I really appreciate it.  I'm so glad the characterisations worked for you - it means a lot from a writer I so admire. ♥

Academic Matters by Amanda Warrington Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 16]
Summary:

Spock thinks Kirk's a cheat in more ways than one.

This is a sequel to Extra Curricular Activities.  While it can be read on its own, it'll make a lot more sense if the prequel's read first.

Whooooo I love that Jim is going to be Spock's sex slave.

This caught me in a kind of weird negative double take: 

If it was possible, when Jim glanced up, his eyes were even colder, their blue the same shade as the ice that covered Jupiter’s moon, Ganymede.  “I don't think you like the fact that I beat your test.”

I have previously equated Ganymede with warmth and sexuality... and having this sentence in here was a kind of double negative, which of course creates a positive, LOL!

Thanks for writing. I'm really having fun in your universe(s)

Rae



Author's Response:

Jim is destined to be Spock's sex slave and he wouldn't have it any other way! ;)


How funny our different perceptions of Genymede - I hope you didn't find the simile too off-putting!  It warms me greatly that you're reading some of my stories and enjoying them. :-) xx
