I just love this story! I have read it several time b3cause it has such depth! So much of what Spock is think, about his experience when his KATRA was "lost" or inside McCoy....and what he must have been experiencing during his "rebirth" on the Genesis Planet, just grabs me! Also, I love how you had h8m unable to connect with Sarek, which made sense. Then how Kirk touched his face....not his hand or arms....but such an intimate touch....to reconnect.
I laughed at the line of Kirk's when Spock refused the 23rd Century Wheelchair!
I also just Love how you had Kirk Calm Spock's feat of sleeping, with his Memories of their shared Dreams. So very touching!
now I just have to have more in this concept, more of what happened when Kirk and Spock spent time at the Place of Healing! Have you considered turning this into a book? Minus the SLASH ELEMENTS...are they actually Publishing ST with that element yet?
even here, tho, you have fodder to expand to multi Chqpters....like, I can just see the next AM scene, with Spock all cuddled into Kirk, and Kirk holding hI'm Protectively, but neither even realizing it was a natural happening overnight, while they slept!
or like, what kind of stuff will Spock go through? This, Retraining, this rejoining? How does Kirk fit in? Will Amanda visit? The Crew? McCoy? What happens with this during this time frame? How does Kirk grieves his son's Death, without it messing up helping Spock? Does Carol show up, angry, sad? Does Star Flet try to make a move, prior to the big disaster on Earth?
please, waiting to read?

Touchingly beautiful, well written. You well convey the state of being suspended in a condition Spock does not understand, between where he perceives to come from, what is expected from him and the thin line along which he is tentatively going foreward towards what will be, towards what was. And Jim's presence the only anchor and guiding light.
I like Sirad, so matter of fact, but also so considerate and almost unvulcanly caring. Good healers seem to be like that even on Vulcan.

This is a superb piece of writing, penned by one of the premier authors in K/S. It follows the first few hours after Spock regains consciousness following the fal-tor-pan. It's written in first person and, as such, gives a fascinating insight into how Spock experiences rejoining this bewildering world of existence in corporeal form.
We see, from Spock's limited perspective, Jim gently help ease his difficult and troublesome journey as his mind learns to reintegrate with both his body and conscious awareness.
What comes across in so many subtle ways is the incredible love Jim has for Spock, shown through looks, touches and the gentle and encouraging words of memories and, in turn, Spock's utter trust in Jim, his body responding to each touch by calming and centering, even when his mind doesn't understand why this being is able to bring him this much-needed inner-peace.
Jenna gives us an indication of the place Spock has left behind - no mean feat - and through Spock's emotions and limited recall, helps us understand his fear of it, and of returning to it so that we, the reader, shares in his anxiety and stress.
This is a beautiful and thought-provoking story that gives us a unique view of the deep, abiding connection - not even sundered by death - that Jim and Spock share. It's an absolute must-read.

oh... how did thee *do* this? I've never managed to see out from this place, not once. It's why I never wrote much of anything that took this canon into account. How could I?
This... the touch and the taste and the feel of it, emotions so much sharper and easier than thinking, and how it is when you first come all the way back up and out, far enough to actually respond... It's like head injured, which I know from personal experience -- but *different*, too. His fear of sliding back too far, and the way that it seems clear it's a real danger, at least at first, that this might not hold...
The way he can already draw facts from memory about devices and so on -- but he can't even think of how to communicate most of what he's feeling -- it all feels *true*.
And Jim's presence, his emotions, his *touch*...
I read the last half of this with watery eyes and a smile, a rather odd combination for me I'll have thee know ;-)>
*Such* a lovely piece. I salute thee my friend -- again.
