Chapter 1: Fulfilling the Needs of the One (Or the Both)
To me, this is canon. It happened, and no one can convince me otherwise.
The characterization is so utterly perfect that I wonder if you ever lived inside their heads. Spock's special way of seeing things, not only as a Vulcan, or half-human, but also as Jim's husband, and the quiet war going on inside him, still tearing him apart after all those years... it's heartbreaking, but it's SPOCK, and you managed to capture that part of him better than anyone. He's my favorite character and I've looked everywhere for a fanfic that would truly grasp who Spock is, I think I finally found it. I don't know if you intended it to be a "character study" type of fanfic but to me it totally is.
The descriptions were brilliant. All the little details make the scenes vivid, real (I LOVE all the futuristic stuff, this might be fluff but we're still knee deep in sci-fi and I LOVE YOU FOR THAT)
The part with the young cadet is incredibly realistic, but really, it's amazing! I can tell from personal experience
And that last part... oh god. I cried my eyes out. I could write pages and pages about all the FEELS I have. That last scene made me sob. I have no words.
Never stop writing. NEVER.Author's Response:
OKAY SO. Honestly speaking. You're a big reason as to why I write. Your constant support is just... I can't put into words just how much I appreciate you!!
I'm so so so happy you liked the characterization and I'm beyond flattered that you thought I captured Spock! It takes me a pretty long time to finish writing a story because of all the description and obsessing over keeping everyone in character as much as possible. Admittedly, sometimes I get frustrated. I'll spend ridiculous amounts of time writing and rewriting and realize, "...Oh. That was only three paragraphs." Haha! And that's when I take to tumblr and start talking about my obsessive compulsiveness. =P But, in the end, I'm always glad I powered through it and contributed to this amazing fanbase we have. <3
I'm sorry for making you cry too. >_< *Hugs*
Thank you a million times over for reading, reviewing, and always being such an amazing source of support for me! <3333
