Chapter 1: Chapter 1
Wow, this was so well written that it was upsetting. Since reading it, I've been trying to come up with a scenario wherein Spock would survive. Given Kirk's betrayal, the cold, the isolation, his inability to return home, I don't know how he could or if he'd even want to. You put our boy in an impossible situation. Smh at that cold hearted Kirk. I could wring his neck! Do you really see him as that selfish? I wish you'd write another chapter and save Spock, even if it's the horrid deus ex machina. However, I can't see how you can possibly redeem Kirk. I repeat, so well written but a heartbreaker.Author's Response:
Thank you so much for your comments. As I stated in another comment, just because Spock has disappeared from the perspective of the narrator does not necessarily mean that he has died. As for your question about Kirk, I will say this: He was clearly in love with Edith Keeler in the TOS episode, wasn't he? Could he not have decided to take her instead of the lonely life that he had led? Would Spock not have insisted that the timeline be restored? Couldn't they have quarreled over that? Or it Spock had feelings for Jim could that have not loomed large in their parting? There are many interpretations of what could have occurred as you have already realized, and I hope this little story keeps you thinking. Thanks again!
