Don't you mean to say Ambassador Selek?  I have never heard of a Salkek.  At first I thought you created a new character but it seems like he's Selek.

Author's Response:

This was written before Selek was accepted as fanon. I made up a name.:) He's not a new character.

I think this is the 2nd time I am reading this so I hope I haven't already posted similar review in the past but - I was really disappointed w this chapter because after you did such a great build up to Kirk being betrayed and handed over to villain Kodos, then we don't even get to see what Kodos did to him.  I was looking fwd to that.  I also didn't think Spock wld have logically decided not to go after Kodos just to pulverize him for harming Jim and killing others.  I love your writing so pls don't take this as a flame review I tend to be too honest at times so I apologize if this comes across harsh when it's merely one readers thoughts :-)    Last thing I just thought it was OOC and odd that Bones and everyone treated Jim like crap after being found - when just a while ago they were frantic to find him and worried about Kodos killing him.   So I guess I had just expected a different outcome in this chapter.   But still can't wait to read the next chapter!!  I am sure you have a reason for the outcome of this chapter.  :-)

Author's Response:

Don't aplogize for your opinion. I'm sorry you didn't care for it. There are two chapters left, so I hope that all of the issues are resolved. If not, please don't force yourself to finish.  As I said before, this was my first story in this fandom and it's ridiculously tropetastic. There are many other authors who write a lot better than myself, so please don't force yourself to read something you find OOC!

No doubt it was one of the most suspenseful stories I read.
(And extremely long)
Mainly it touched the boundaries of emotion. I do not remember ever reading Jim so insecure when the time came for him with Spock.
See Spock loses himself always a pretty sight.
When you described what went on inside them merge minds, there was a feeling of something immortal on the one hand and on the other end of life, how strange is this?
The last line you left hanging in the air, in itself, was overwhelming and perfect end

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm very glad that you enjoyed it!

This story was just *swoon*~  Wonderful job!  This is the first story I've found that actually has Kodos in it and not be during a flash back.  The entire basis of this story was just amazing.  I loved how you had Spock going through the hallway of Jim's memory and how they built up their relationship.  You are an awesome writer and I hope with all my heart that you are aware of it~

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for being so kind. I liked that image of Spock trying to help Jim, but that's the only way he could picture (as Bones would say) Vulcan mumbo jumbo. Anyway, thanks so much for reading this!!

Loved it! Lots of angst! Spock, Jim, Uhura & Bones came alive between the lines of text on the monitor.  Just one tiny flaw - it was a little unclear just how Kodos accomplished his nefarious deeds. But otherwise, it was a great tale.

Author's Response:

Sorry about that. I know it's crappy writing. But I had already published it before I realized that I left that out.  *cringes*

Your story was heartbreaking and I was on the edge of my seat more than once reading to find out what would happen next. I had a wonderful time reading. Thanks!

Thank you for commenting!  I appreciate it!

I just like the title. It reminds me of a speech from Lord of the Rings: when the strength of men has failed.

Author's Response:


Do you know that NO ONE put that together?! I mean no one- with this story on like three different archies. *throws confetti*  I love those books. I read them like 1000 times.

I read the end of  Ch.11 and I was like ohnoyoudidnot! Jim can't die! There has to be bondmate sexitimes!!! D: So I really enjoyed ch. 12 and the conclusion of this story.

One criticism I would make is not enough Kodos and Karidian in all their villianous glory. I wanted to know more about how their relationship worked, how did it get so twisted, why does Karidian give everything up for her father who just wants Jum, and so on.

I hope you write more stories!


Author's Response:

I am always surprised that more people wanted to know that. I've been thinking of going back and writing those parts. I have written a lot of stories, but I don't think that any of them are as angsty as this. :D  Thank you so much for reading.

O_O 8D This is such an amazing story! :D Thank you so much for writing it, and continuing to update it! It's really hard to believe that this is your first story in this fandom; it's just so well done! *cough* ...Sequel? :P Pretty please?

Author's Response:

Wow! I don't know that I have much to say in a sequel, but thank you so much for the idea and for the review.

This was very good.  I love stories that address the Kodos episode.  Very nicely brought up to the reboot universe.  And, may I say, teh hott ;D

I had watched Conscience of the King a million years ago with my dad (and god if he knew what I did with it he's probably ground me for life, despite the fact that I'm over 30 and married with kids lol) and thought it would work with a Tarsus IV fic. I'm afraid he kinda ended up overly diabolical, but I had fun writing it! :D  And I'm glad you liked teh hott.  XD.

This is brilliant. I love the sequences when they're in Kirk's mind together, and the way the story gradually builds up is wonderful. The characters are so well written, and it manages to be heartbreaking in some parts and laugh out loud funny in others. Great job and I hope you're planning on writing more :)
