I quite enjoyed reading this, thanks for posting! The part where Jim and Carol where talking and both McCoy and Spock got jealous was funny - especially considering that they were talking about Jim serenading Spock - which is kinda hilarious but also oh so sweet.
and Bones and Uhura raising their glasses to each other was great, it made me grin.
Glad you liked it. Originally, I was going to end it with our matchmakers toasting each other, but the McCoy/Carol thing wiggled its way into this, so there needed to be some closure with it, too. Thank you for reviewing! ~ RK

Sometimes I like to read a story like this, where everybody wants everybody else to be happy. ;) I love the idea of the serenade, though the words are a little bit too outspoken for my taste - I immagine Spock turning all shades of green, especially at a public mentioning of Pon Farr!
I heard the song and thought, "I have to find a way to write this into a story somehow!" The idea that it would end up being this story - which was already mostly outlined at the time - was unexpected even for me. I guess Jim figured the only way to really be sure Spock knew he wasn't making fun of him was to be as blunt as possible. Or he just wanted to see him blush. ;) Thank you for reviewing! Glad you enjoyed it! ~ RK

Poor Spock, right? Being embarrassed/flattered by a shameless, nervous Jim. What a pair. Thank you for reviewing. Happy belated V-day to you, too! ~ RK

I absolutely loved reading this story! It's so adorable and sweet and ugh, I just wanted to shove Spock and Kirk together, lol. Also, Chekov cuddling the teddy bear was just the sweetest sight. This was so incredibly lovely.
Thanks! Everyone wanted to shove them together with you. ~ RK
