This was so well written and very eloquently stated the best of each character and how it touches them. Romantic aspects aside, I think it's this foundation of friendship and devotion that underlies Star Trek and made it last this long. Personally, it's always been a quandary for me why time made friendships stronger, but breeds contempt or antipathy in couples - they're different beasts, but when you like the person the way these two do - it's a wonder to behold and very luck to have. Kudos!
Thank you! I'm very glad that you liked the story.
I agree that friendship is the foundation of their relationship, and mutual appreciation is the core of why they work so well together. In the couples I know, familiarity only breeds contempt in couples that don't have that foundation of friendship; I think even romance works better when there's a strong friendship underlying it.

I enjoyed this immensely. I loved the friendship ceremony. The words that Jim and Spock expressed to each other were simply beautiful. Thanks for sharing this.
Thanks, hon! I'm really glad you liked the story and especially glad that you liked the ceremony, since I thought that was something a little different from the usual. (I hadn't been planning a ceremony; I was just going to have them sign the paperwork, but once I got them to the registration center, a ceremony jumped up and insisted on being written. Writers' minds are such strange places! :-D)
I really appreciate how generous you are when you review stories; it's really very sweet of you.

Eine schöne Idee.
Du hast die Charakter von Jim und Spock (TOS) sehr gut eingefangen. Ich konnte sie richtig gut vor mir sehen. Klasse.
Vielen Dank für die Geschichte.
Thank you! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the story.
Keeping the guys in character is very important to me, so I'm glad to hear that you think I captured them well and that you could see it happening in your mind's eye.
