You did an amazing job with this. The details were so crisp (at least when they were supposed to be!) and your descriptions were so clear that my active imagination had no trouble following along. I could just see Jim, stuck in his quarters, sick as a dog because of Spock. (SPOCK GOT TRASHED!! I will love you forever for that moment.) I was there as the alien entity took them through their tests. And their joy at being alive again. You left the end vague enough about Kirk and Spock that my mind can be overactive and imaginative all on its own. This is not the first story of yours I've read. You have a massive amount of talent and I thank you for letting us come on these journeys with you. Sadly, I can only give you 10/10 rating. Would I, it would be doubled.

Awww...glad that you think so! This was my very first attempt at writing a K/S story. When I go back and read it now...I kinda wonder what I was thinking -- the plot's just all over the place. Hmmmm. Not that THAT's changed in my writing since this story. Ah well. :)

Nice job Selek! Drop the bomb and get the hell out!
Yeah, Spock!Prime -- just so helpful, isn't he? "Hey Jim, I screwed up really badly. Sorry about that. You should do -this- to fix it, but I'm not going to tell you how to go about accomplishing said thing." Yeah, totally helpful there Selek. *fail*

Wish I could take credit for the "Want to Learn Mating Tactics" line -- it was included in the challenge description that I wrote the story to fulfill. It is a pretty awesome line, though.
