Set soon after the end of 2009 Abrams’ movie. A new home for the Vulcan people has been found, but it is a planet owned by the Cerberus Corporation, a shadowy organization run by a man, Damascus Raine, whose advances James T. Kirk rejected when only a teen. In order for the Vulcans to get their new planet, Kirk must give himself to Raine. Will Spock allow Kirk to make such a sacrifice?

I can't even explain how happy I was to see a new chapter of this, and it didn't disappoint. I forgot about the unpleasantness of finals for a full ten minutes, and, you know, that's all I really want from fiction. So, thank you for that pleasant interlude, and congratulations on your website.



Author's Response:

Thank you!  And good luck on finals.  They are almost over.  And the holidays will be here.  I'll be updating again soon.  There's also plenty of free stuff on the website before then if you care to check it out.

Next chapter will be Jim and Raines!

I really enjoyed Sulu's stream-of-consciousness narration. It was well done, and the repeated lines were well-placed. Good job, and keep it up.

I absolutely adore this story. (And for the record, I think it's infinitely better than Smallville, especially now that the show's gotten so weird and disjointed...)



Author's Response:

*giggles* THANK YOU.  I'm glad to hear its better than Smallville, considering that show has SUCKED since season three.  And now its lost Mike Rosenbaum. *shakes head* Bring back the Clex, Smallville.

Interesting story. I could definitely see it fitting into TOS (minus the explicitness, of course.) I'm interested to see where it goes.

Happy writing,

Nice plot twists. Also, I love the preamble-themed titles. I'm such a Constitution nerd...

I know, I love the Constitution. I had to use it, since it goes so well with my theme.

So for some reason, I'm in review mode today and feel the need to review every story I read online. So... my first instinct is to say I hate this story. It's incredibly frustrating. But I mean that in the best way possible. As in, I love it. (Hope that makes sense.) Keep it up.

Sad, but sweet.

I hope you post more of your work. I know it's nerve-wracking, but I have found that the Internet is friendlier than you might think. Especially on sites like this, where you can be fairly certain what your audience is looking for. Elsewhere, people tend not to leave overwhelmingly negative reviews. Constructive criticism sometimes, but that's nothing to worry about.

So... yes. Please post. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you T'Para for reading my poem.  I have written quite a few stories and poem/songs etc...got to get them beta read though...my grammar really sucks...i have two working on two different stories.  I got two pages back already and boy do i have my work cut out for me.  It helps though it, you take for granted that the reader knows what is going on your head when he sometimes doesn't so you have to describe, describe, describe... and you try not to make it boring....so the stuff that is up isn't beta read but hopefully i'll learn from the experts.  Thanks.

This is a really nice story. It makes me smile. I especially love your explanation for McCoy's nickname. (I love that show. New episode Thursday!) On a whole, your AU premise is fascinating. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much! Haha, that was actually because I realized later on that his nickname had to do with his devorce....but he's not divorced yet in my fic and Jim had already called him Bones....I kinda had to cover my tracks with that one. (shhhh, don't tell anyone) I hope the fic lives up to your expectations! <3

But.... but.... that means it'll be done. :( I love this story too much for it to be done. Please tell me you have a sequel planned?

Author's Response: I've actually been asked a few times about a sequel, and the problem with this story is that it ends in such a way that it would be very hard to do anything with a sequel to make it obvious that it was set in this particular alternate universe. So I'm really not sure. If I get some interesting idea, though, I'm definitely on it! (I'll admit that I've gotten a couple of ideas, though they involve Kirk/Spock/McCoy, because I can't ship any two of them for long without wanting the third involved...)
