Superb story, though I think I'm being a bit dumb! Remind me of exctly what Uhura did and said to delay Spock before he beamed down to the breaking up of planet Vulcan? I can sort of remember, but not entirely. That's one of the things about them in the first film. It's not that I'm entirely hating them together. I just hate that she's still meant to be a cadet. I think, as a tutor, and a Vulcan, Spock would have somehow had more integrity. The other thing that kind of grates against it all, is that I'm not sure original Uhura would be so forgetful of protocol and al the right place, right time; don't embarassyour fellow officer, much less your very Vulcan fellow officer... I do think original Spock and Uhura did have a bit of friendship based chemistry, so it's not that I can't see how the writers got to where they did with the remake - I just don't like how they've written some of it, and, the fact remains, I do prefer Kirk/Spock for the romantic option!!
I couldn't agree with you more! The things that horrified me were when she took about 28 seconds to kiss Spock on the transporter platform, when he and Kirk were waiting to beam over to Nero's ship, when they already knew from Vulcan's destruction that every second counted to save Earth. Before that, of course, when she delayed Spock when he was trying to rescue his parents by asking him what he was doing and where he was going. It was so unmilitary and out of order of her. And thank you so much for the compliment about the story! :)

Adorable! I love the sweetness of their waking in the morning and Bones' concern changing into surprised contentness and wish to protect them.
Thank you very much. I liked how he locked them in and Spock was so annoyed LOL!

I love the nuances! Is there a sequel?
Thank you! No, sorry, it was a one-shot.
