Bio:

Guess I better write something, huh?


Well, I'm a reader not a writer. I read while eating, walking, travelling, I read instead of sleeping - I've even got a toilet library. At the moment I read mainly slash - since my life is depressingly dull and it amuses me enormously when people around me innocently use words or expressions that conjure up all kinds of not so innocent pictures in my head: "Whipped cream . . . is fine on desserts but much better on Spock" (forever indebted to T'Key'La for this wonderful image). So this goes out to all you fantastic people out there who have the ability, courage and discipline to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard): keep up the good work, you enrich our lives (and save us money, now I only have to buy five books a month instead of ten).


So keep the slash coming and you will all be rewarded with a place on the Enterprise in your next re-incarnation.

First of all let me say that I always enjoy reading your stories, they are heartwarming and beautiful. I love this one in particular because of this part:

 

He enjoyed Spock's company too much to turn him into a quick fuck and after the disaster that was Ryan, Jim didn't do relationships anymore. He barely did guys anymore for that matter. With women, it had always been about physical gratification and he could still appreciate that. With guys it had always been more about the emotional relationship and after what had happened last time he just did not want to risk it. Sex was wonderful, love sucked.

You have managed in a few sentences what it has taken K/S shippers years and thousands of words to try and do: make sense of that *** footnote in TMP. THANK YOU - now I don't have to make people read Judith Gran's essay (even though it is great) when they try to use the footnote to dispel the idea of K/S, I can just quote these few lines.

More power to you!

Wow, what a great story. More, please! Loved the backstory, can't wait to see what you'll do with Helen Noel - or the backrub scene ;D

This is my favourite type of story - tie-in or re-telling of original episodes - and this is one of the best I have ever read. It has depth and insight into the characters whithout being overbearing. Next time I watch the episode I will read your story along with it - to fill in the gaps. I'm sure it will enhance the viewing pleasure. I assume every slash girl has something similar going through her head when she watches the episodes, but you managed to put together those thoughts and ideas into a cohesive unit.

If you can do all episodes I will dedicate my PhD thesis on K/S to you :)

For the Love of a Child by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 398]
Summary:

This is a reponse to Samantha-Kathy's challenge (and apparently Manganra has a similar one as well): Spock Prime Raises Kirk. Spock goes through the wormhole after Nero, but the Kelvin destroys Nero and his ship, being destroyed in the process. Baby Jim is orphaned, and a mysterious Vulcan named Selik adopts him. Vulcan isn't destroyed, and Selik raises Jim there, so Jim knows more about Vulcans than many humans do. He also has some mind powers--and he joins Starfleet and meets a certain Vulcan named Spock.

Aww - that's so sweet. I was talking with a friend yesterday about how much we prefer TOS over Reboot and that here are so few new TOS stories and along comes this little gem. A perfect start to a lazy advent sunday,



Author's Response:

I am curious why you prefer TOS to Reboot (I know my reasons) but if I were to guess, TOS has years of stories, subtle characterizations by the actors, and fanfiction on top of it.  TOS is simply easier to write!  My opinion (sighs).  I wonder with the new movie how that will all work out.  Nevertheless, thank you so much for reviewing and I wish you a happy Sunday!

Dreams and Realities by Cyberrat Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 42]
Summary:

Spock works for Starfleet by using his telepathic abilities to dive into the culprit's mind. He's done that for years now - however, his most difficult case is only now beginning. It's been unceremoniously dropped into his lap by Admiral Pike and revolves all around the famous and young Captain Kirk.What exactly has happened in the Captain's rooms on the Enterprise? Why has there been found the body of a woman - literally torn to shreds? It'll be difficult to get information out of the Captain; and even more difficult to get them out of his staff, it seems. They're tightly knit and don't make things easy for the Vulcan.

However, Spock not only has to worry the mysterious case - he also needs to keep his wits about him in a world that just doesn't seem to have a place for him. And why - oh why - did he choose just now to fall in love?!

-----------------

This story is supposed to run parallel to other stories - something that can help me get my mind back on track if I need to write something vastly different.

The depiction of the characters - at least Spock - is quite different from what I usually do. Spock has a good side helping of mirror!Spock, but I hope it will be logical in the course of the story why he's the way he is^^

Sounds really promising so far, I usually don't read WIPs, but couldn't resist this one. I like this version of Spock, can't wait to see what you'll do with him. So far he displays Spock's usual characteristics - intelligence, determination, toughness - but in a different combination. It will be really interesting to see if and how you are going to incorporate his most outstanding trait - loyalty - into this set-up.



Author's Response:

heya, thanks for the review^^

I'm glad you decided to give it a shot despite it being a WIP :) I have to admit, that I like this version of Spock as well... he's kind of a ruthless badass xD but he has his soft spots as well ^.^ hope you'll continue to enjoy the story as it unfolds :)

Intriguing. Can't wait to see where you are going with this.

The only thing I have a slight problem with is your grammar. Do you have a beta to clean up your tenses? You use a lot of present perfect when it should be past tense or past perfect.

Other than that, I really like it.



Author's Response:

Hey, thanks for the review!

I'm glad, that you like it :D and thanks for the critique. I have no beta-reader and I will look into the issue, hopefully I'll improve in the future. At any rate: if I still make grave mistakes, maybe you could pick out a sentence or two and show me, what exactly you would change. That would be really nice.

 

thanks again so much! And until next time :)

The Priest and the Captain by Cyberrat Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 104]
Summary:

Finished!

-----

Prompt by argona:

I can't get the idea of a priest Spock out of my mind so this is what I want. I want Spock as a Vulcan priest who has devoted his life to serving the temple and I want Jim to fall in love with him and do anything he can to claim what he wants.Jim as a captain realizes that Spock is wasting his life as a priest while by joining him he can serve his people in much greater ways.Of course I'm fine with anything as long as Spock is the priest and Jim falls in love with him first and tries to persuade him into a relationship. Thank you in advance!

I'm really breaking my rule about not reading WIPs with your stories :)

I like this very much, can't wait to read more.
