If there's one thing that drives me nuts about fanfiction, its WIPs. You know what I'm talking about. There are always those fics that you KNOW are never gonna be finished but they're so god damn GOOD that even long after you've left the fandom you still find yourself going back every once in a while, just to see if it's updated. But it isn't. And it never will be.


I'm going to try my damned hardest not to be one of those fic authors. So I'm gonna try to finish every fic before I publish it. Or at least have a rough cut that, should something go down, I can publish so I don't leave anyone hanging. I'm not sure how this will work out. It's something I'm gonna try. It might end up meaning a ton of ridiculously long one shots. I dunno. Jury's still out.


Let the experiment begin!

Awwww, this was so sweet! Bittersweet in parts, but sweet all over. Thank you for writing!



Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! It is bittersweet, thinking of a Spock without a Kirk. But our new canon shows it, and with what we know about Vulcan lifespans it's obvious it'll probably happen. I am honored to be reviewed by you. Thanks for reading!

Carry My Heart by Cate Adams Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 57]
Summary:

Jim has always been drawn to his first officer in a way that defies his previous experience, but insists he’s never been in love.  Spock doesn’t understand the emotional response he has to his captain, relying on a definition that doesn’t quite fit.  The perception and realization of love is interpreted through the ending of one relationship and the beginning of another.

I really enjoyed this story! It was so sweet and I especially loved your characterization of Bones. It's definitely one of my favorite winter-themed fics of the season. I just wanted to point out one thing, the temperatures you mentioned were on the warm side, whether measured by Celcius or Farenheit. I'm assuming you meant Farenheit, and speaking as someone who lives in a northern climate, 18 degrees sounds positively balmy right now. I feel like in order for the crew to be driven to such lengths it should have dropped to sub-zeroes at least, especially since on the Enterprise there's no risk of wind chill or water exposure.

That being said I still loved this fic and I'm definitely saving it to my bookmarks so I can find it again. Thank you for writing!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much for your comments, and for your praise. I very much appreciate you taking the time to tell me of your thoughts.

I, too, live in a northern climate. And I am both familiar with and was very careful about the differences between Fahrenheit and Celsius. In researching the temperature choices I made for this story, I looked up the temperatures at which chilblains and other cold-induced consequences occurred in humans and how long it took them to manifest. The sites I took seriously included the Centers for Disease Control, the Mayo Clinic and the National Institute of Health. I was a bit surprised to find that chilblains can occur at temperatures as high as 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.56 Celsius).

I, too, live in a northern climate and am familiar with the differences between Fahrenheit and Celsius. I did make sure to have a Fahrenheit/Celsius converter whilst writing this, though, as I didn't want to rely solely on my memory. ;)

In researching the choices for this story, I looked up the temperatures at which chilblains and other cold-induced consequences occurred in humans and how long it took them to manifest. The sites I took seriously included the Centers for Disease Control, the Mayo Clinic and the National Institute of Health. I was a bit surprised to find that chilblains can occur at temperatures as high as 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15.56 Celsius). I also looked up the minimum legal temperatures at which landlords are required to keep their properties in various major North American cities. Of the cities I sampled, only New York allowed temperatures below 60 F. Here's a good link on hypothermia from the Mayo Clinic: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hypothermia/basics/symptoms/CON-2002045

As that article states, hypothermia can result from prolonged exposure to any temperature colder than your body if one is inadequately clothed or unable to control the temperature. I've had it twice under very different circumstances, and I am extremely tolerant of cold. (I wear open-toed sandals outdoors in the dead of a northerly winter.) Given that Spock chose to raise the temperature in his quarters to 125 F (51.67 C) in "The Deadly Years", I decided that he'd have a LOT of trouble with 18 C. I find that temperature LOVELY, but I think it would threaten Spock's health badly after days of steady cooling. Even human tolerances differ widely. I'm super comfy at 60 F (15.56 C), but a very healthy friend from Costa Rica shivers at anything below 80 F (26.67 C).

Before I did my research, I was thinking, like you, that only subzero temperatures would cause such hypothermia. However, after adding my lived experience to my reading, I thought making the Enterpirse that cold would be over the top. The first time I got hypothermia was from being stranded outside in a blizzard for 3.5 hours. It took a month for my bones to warm up after that. The second time was after losing power (ergo heat, cooking and hot water) for three days during which we couldn't start a fire to heat a room. We wrapped up in warm clothes and blankets as the temperature fell to about 44 F (6.67 C). I didn't realize that I was in trouble until the electricity came back on and I started to shiver uncontrollably after the heat came back.

I hope this goes some way to explaining my choices for this story. I very much appreciate you challenging me on points you found questionable! It's a rare thing for people to do that, especially so kindly. Many thanks! :-)
