Bio:
Hypatia Kosh was born without tact, the victim of years of secret government radiation experiments near his mother's hometown, no doubt. Horribly disfigured by this birth defect, he turned to a life of evil, making enemies where e'er he roams. (Newsgroups and mailing lists, mainly.) Hypatia Kosh is obsessed by a need to "stick it to the Man" even at the cost of his own cheesy fries.

What the hell ... can't help reminiscing about this story.

I've got "Smooth Operator" playing on endless loop in my head considering this story--here, have my earworm. No need to aaahsk, he's a smooth operator...

This story made me want to visit NOLA. I was going to take the Sunset Limited but I never had the right connection of money, free time, and cajones. Then Katrina hit and washed the tracks out and Amtrak decided to permanently cancel the NOLA to JAX portion. I hate the Southeast.

I never knew Turning Point was posted to ASFS ... now there's ancient history. In 1995 B5 was the hottest thing ever and I was on midwinter.com like every single day.

I probably read this story around 97, 98 right when I was coming out and super militant. I'd never been able to sit all the way through TMP, but I was on a TOS kick ... and TOS is generally upbeat ... so I reacted badly. I only wanted positive stories about same-sex relationships, dammit. I totally bitched out the person who recced it to me. In retrospect I can see this is just a riff on TMP.

Full Circle is actually pretty good. I liked it. One thing's clear: Killa caused a sensation and helped inspire a whole bolus of K/S writers and fans. That and scifi channel running the unedited TOS eps. K/S went from zero to damn near taking over ASCEM for a while. Then the giant flame war and everyone took their toys and went home. Then I showed up and nobody was there but Saavant (who is a very cool person but pretty much g.a.f.f. now) and I had a sad. :(

RIP Usenet, although I know it won't. Last time I went it was like Mad Max over there.

Wow, Killa, I owe you a gigantic apology for the stuff I said about this story back in the early 2000's. Now with 100% more Perspective™--everyone should try it!

Kirk is drowning in this story. Back then I thought it was because of his attraction to Spock. Reading the first few paragraphs, it's completely clear that it's because they've taken the Enterprise away from him, and he's reaching for Spock like for a life preserver, but it doesn't work (because: TMP). Total lack of reading comprehension. Somebody shoulda slapped me upside the head. Of course, nobody could tell me anything back then.

I was a complete ass and called everybody homophobic (among other things). Totally delusional. Have to laugh at myself now. I'm really sorry you had to be on the receiving end of my utter stupidity. You have my permission to tell everyone I'm a witless c*nty wanker. Or a wanky c*nt. If the shoe fits--!



Author's Response:

Ha, *snrk.* I know I've been in fandom a long time because I don't even remember your negative comments. (Don't take that personally -- I don't remember much of anything that happened longer ago than last week!) I'm sure there's some justification for whatever you said, and any other criticisms people might have made. It's not like I knew what I was doing when I wrote this. But thanks for giving it another shot, anyway. As I've said many times, the one thing you have to say about this story and its sequel is that they were written from a very earnest and heartfelt place. For whatever that's worth!

There's something about context, I think, where if you come into a fandom and everybody's praising something they loved because they read it at just the right time and in just the right headspace, and you read it and are less than thrilled, you feel like, wtf? What are you people smoking? I don't think you're the first person who probably experienced some of that with this story. Definitely one of those, right time, right place things when it was originally posted. :)

So, reading further, what's really disquieting/depressing about this story (and btw, major points for so effectively building the mood) is Spock's passivity and submission. He's confronted by things that he knows are wrong, but he can't say no--to Starfleet or to Kirk. Kirk seems more or less in character. Is Spock out of character? Well, we've just established that he's severely sleep deprived, which would put anyone in an altered state of consciousness. (Plausibility established.) Easy to see how things could spiral out of control. Want to shake Spock up, tell him to take a couple days off, get some rest, come back and stick up for himself. Suppressed/subsumed aggression ==> depression.

No, I don't think this story is as bad as you keep saying it is--not at all. But at Kirk says, "You're not exactly seeing us at our best." As fans, we like to see them at their best.

Somehow I got a copy of this story a couple of years ago and it's been a favorite of mine ever since. I think it's the setting and the atmosphere. And of course, as I find KR's K and S to be perfectly in character, there are no complaints on that end. Thank you so much for posting it on the internet (and saving a few trees)!

I enjoyed this alternative outcome, less in terms of the movie itself, but in terms of the relationships between Kirk, Spock, Sarek, and McCoy. These characters and their relationships to each other are a lot of what make the inner movies so compelling through multiple viewings. Of course, I enjoyed the description of the bond between Kirk and Spock, and the guilty pleasure of Movie_Era!Sex!First_Time. I like the other parts, too ... kind of silly that the reviews don't append to the entire story. I liked the technique of just showing where Kirk and Spock are in six years instead of going through reams of "they talk it out." Like we haven't gone through THAT 200 times already. :^D

Indeed, there had been times, though Spock tried not to think about them too much, that Kirk’s gaze had held his for almost an uncomfortably long amount of time. Those moments had been unsettling, unnerving, and disturbing.



Spock missed them very much.

 

Truly one of your best lines. (The best, of course, being "I do not love you" at the end of that drinking game story.)

Always loved this story. Short and sweet and right on target. Love the way you slipped "aboot" in there.

In retrospect, I have to add that isn't it funny that in STXI Spock Prime tells young Spock to "Do what feels right"? And he still believes in Kirk... I guess Spock wins the game after all. :D

I think there's been some ratings inflation on this site over time... here's my contribution. I, personally, believe that US Americans that this story (sketch?) was hilarious, such like, and so forth.

Oh, grant us a boon and write something new for us, K'Sal!

I've been wondering recently if this story was inspired by the ending of "The Price" or even the beginning of Courts of Honor, when McCoy diagnoses (~_^) Spock as being "frigid...and...impotent". McCoy makes no real attempt to, er, treat those conditions, but what would the doctor really do about it? :)

Always liked this story--it's like an episode. Kirk finds a solution and saves the day (A+B plot)! ::Dean scream:: Adding to favorites.

Ha ha, reading reviews, too funny that someone just skipped to the sex scenes. I skip over most of them these days (not yours). Most K/S sex scenes SUCK (and NOT in a good way!). I am so sick of that smarmy crap about Kirk tracing the line of Spock's sensuous lips and quivering in anticipation--well, you get the idea. Have you seen the blog NoLongerQivering? I bet you have; if not, I think it's up your alley. Sorry, easily distracted...

This story is for everyone who wondered what the hell happened when they finally made it to Altair. *picturing Spock's super-Vulcan facade in place*

What do you think of the new movie??? The subtext just screams at you--they think they're so damn sophisticated--Plinkett reviews called it a case of the Not Gays--but the structure of the movie is a bromance and what's up with Spock bending Kirk over a bridge console and choking him. Not exactly subtle! Everyone's writing K/Mc. GOOD JOB, WRITERS. THEY TOTALLY THINK HE'S HETEROSEXUAL. If Spock and Uhura end up married I think I'm going to gag... nothing against Uhura (she kicks ass!) but because Spock is totally pussy whipped. I really can't stand it. Besides, we've all been there and that doesn't last. Best part of the movie was Scotty. And the Spock Prime/Kirk thing. My glasses exploded during that scene. (I was on the floor looking for parts when the lights came up.) I think it's some sort of sign.

Well, see you around the intart00bs. PS: still a Gator hater.
