"Do you ever get the feeling that none of this is real?" Jim asked very quietly.
"Negative," said Spock, at a normal volume. "At times..." he began. This was difficult for him. There was only one other person whom he had tried to intentionally invite past his shields like this. "At times, it seems as if it is entirely too real, and everything else is a dream, or a holographic recording, or something which happened to another being." He sipped his tea. "It is not logical."
Title is from Visions of Gideon, which I will never be able to listen to without tearing up.
