I keep re-reading this story and recommending it to others, because it's just so gorgeous. You've grounded so much of it in things that have happened in various episodes, then you've created something entirely new.
This story is beautifully written, wonderfully in character, and completely perfect. A real tour de force.

Wow. That was indescribably beautiful. I love the ritual that you've added to Vulcan culture, I love the image of Spock you've conjured up here, I love how gorgeously you've written it all. Thank you so much for writing such a gorgeous story.

Damn! Second read, and I'm still impressed. Well written. Very well written. The only fault I could find was with some of Jim's dialogue. Not with the general content, I think you really examined the internal motives and search for self-understanding (and the circumventing of that search that is so "human") very well. Merely an observation that some of Jim's dialogue was too formal. But it was a small detractor from a well written and well conceived story.

This was incredibly beautiful and sensuous without being overly gratuitous. And that's a darned hard line to draw where sexing is concerned! I'm a picky picky b*tch when it comes to my Trek fic and this is one I'm saving so I can re-read. Thanks so very much for sharing it with us!

Loved this story very much. The rituals of Vulcans, the meaning of T'hy'la...the first part I am not surprised that Jim was aroused...I mean head thrown back, etc..what a sight to see.
And later Jim accepts Spock....as it should be...thanks for posting it here.
