Wow, it's just so vividly written! Still waters run deep. Possessive Spock, and that underneath the cool veneer of logic his blood is burning and he's still a warrior - loved it!

This is one of my favorite stories. I read it several times, and it's such a pleasure to return to it. Gosh, I love all its intricate, subtle themes: Kirk's joy and yet heartbreak of having and yet not having Spock back, the concept of all memories fully present but disconnected from emotions and thus without their full value, an amazing parallel between Pike and Spock, the additional scene and backstory for Talos IV episode (Kirk's forgiveness always struck me, and the background you gave for it was just exquisite), Spock's meditation robe and how it served as comfort for them both, and finally a new print of the old holo - everything is just perfect, so unique and memorable. Thank you so much for sharing! 



Author's Response:

Thanks for commenting!  I came up with the initial idea for this story when I rewatched “The Menagerie” and saw the parallels between this episode and later events.  I’ve also read many post-fal tor pan stories with Spock struggling to regain his memories, and I wondered what would happen if the concept was flipped - if he actually had all his memories back, but they were disconnected from emotion.  The flaw in the Vulcan ideal of non-emotion is that without emotion there is, as you said, without full value.

I absolutely love how you write wild Vulcan passion, it's fire itself! Also really enjoyed the Vulcan culture, and how this wrestling with the subconscious was unraveled. It was great that Spock actually trusted McCoy to seek help, because he's so tight-lipped about personal matters. And Kirk's noble spirit, his commanding skills, and how enticing he is to Spock - loved it as well!

The Pillow Thief by doubleplusawesome Rated: All Audiences starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

It is perfectly 100% logical to sleep with seven big fluffy pillows on your bed, absolutely. But when those pillows start disappearing from Spock's bed one by one... the list of likely suspects is fairly short. How exactly does one accuse their captain of such an absurd act? :[

Gosh, I loved it so much!! I have this headcanon too—that they’re actually still themselves, the good people, only surviving in the dark universe the best way they can. Loved how you portrayed Jim, so naive at first, but clever, quick-thinking and learning. Loved the earnestness and quiet power of Spock, and the connection both felt at once. Was really sorry when I read it until the end, it would be so great to see more of this universe, how Jim and Spock get closer and explore their t’hy’la bond. Thank you so much for writing this awesome story!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much!  This story was always a favorite of mine, and I kind of wish I had written more about them.  I appreciate your review!
