Summary:

Another piece of shameless K/S melodrama. Now with endnotes! Notes to the series:

rn

1. The series is set to begin in the time after Spock’s death fixing the engine reactor in The Wrath of Khan (directed by Nicholas Meyer, 1982) and his resuscitation, begun on planet Genesis and later completed through fal-tor-pan on Vulcan, in The Search for Spock (directed by Leonard Nimoy, 1984).
2.
A shameless K/S melodrama is the comically self-deprecating subtitle for Killa’s beautifully serious, deeply-written story Turning Point, originally posted to the alt.sex.fetish.startrek newsgroup in 1995 (also appeared in «T'hy'la», 18), now at http://seacouver.slashcity.net/killa/turnpt.html and at http://ksarchive.com, together with the sequel Full Circle, originally posted in 1997 (also appeared in «T'hy'la», 20). I like the turn of phrase so much that (shamelessly) I robbed it.
3. Fal-tor-pan: Ancient, difficult Vulcan ritual of rebirthing the deceased, by reuniting the elements of a whole composed by the body (cellular matter, or protoplasm), the soul (life, functioning metabolism), and the katra, or spirit (personal individuality, including experiences and memories). The Vulcan concept of this triad shows some similarity with Terran alchemical philosophies in the early centuries a.D.
4. The series becomes AU in part 9, in a way opened by Elise Madrid with
One particular harbour, originally published in «T'hy'la», 23, October 2003, and its companion piece Duty’s Call, originally published in «Legends», 3, November, 2003, both now at http://ksarchive.com. Be forewarned (further warnings in due time).
5. Most Vulcan words and phrases come from
The Vulcan Language Institute Reclamation Project (see in particular the page at http://www.stogeek.com/wiki/Vulcan_Language_Lesson_19), the Vulcan Dictionary at http://members.tripod.com/~tshala/vul-dict.html and The Vulcan Information Centre for Extravulcanians at http://www.marketaz.co.uk/StarTrek/Vulcan/Vulcan.html. The others are personal knowledge.
6. Working on this took me the best part of a year. The endnotes have been a way to keep part of my mind at safety distance, while the rest boldly went where I’d never gone before. The endnotes used to be footnotes, but it seems the posting voodoo can’t pick them up as such.
7. Copyrights are duly mentioned wherever possible. The webpages mentioned are those where I first read the stories I quote; many of them have now also been posted here.

rn

8. The original version of the series has also pictures. It may be that at some time in the future I’ll get a website and post the whole stuff there.

Really serious intensity interspersed with delight--from Tarsus to the *ciareddu*--and so much love--thank you!

I've always wanted to have goats (not partial to sheep). Oc I also want a Sehlat.

And how wonderful to come upon Branduardi in the midst! My heart runneth over....

Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I'm happy that you also feel the references fit =)

Summary:

Jim and Spock fight. A lot.

I finally woke up and came over to Series to read this...series.

What a gallop! What fun!

Summary:

A collection of stories all based on the premise that Spock has suffered from self-harm and suicidal feelings.  The central story is 'A Painful Discovery' - all the others branch off from that, follow on from it in some way, or just continue the theme.  A mini-verse of its own, if you will.

This always makes me want to watch one of those late night shows--just to see if they really talk like that.

So damn funny!

Summary: A sequel to TMI (Too Much Information) in which Jungle Kitty blatantly rips off an urban legend. When last we saw our heroes, they were on their way to Spock's quarters to get a tribble, unknowing that they were walking into an explosive pile-up on the Genre Cliche Highway. Another one that should be rated S for SQUICK.

OMG: Has anyone ever gotten TMJ from laughing?

I'll admit I had to look up "felching"--but--ah--"the hard red stalk"? It must be in there among the spacepickles and the blue fruits...somewhere.

Reviewer: oyboh Signed

Read this over--still hilarious--and oc this time knew right away what the stalk was...go figger.

I did, however, have to look up "felching" again--denial? Squik!

This one is extra-special--like Fabric, when there is a parting issue, you ma we want to weep or howl or kick stuff--and I am usually as outwardly placid as an ameba.

oh dear oh dear oh dear--I am amzed that your stories have almost no reviews!--I've read them all in one fell swoop and you are surely the Queen of Bittersweet !

This happened to be the first, so my general review is on here. One thing only--would it possibly be an idea to put the First Times in order?...Oc at this point the reader can do so and read them all again in a little....

Your site, as well, is admirable--AND hilarious!

Thanl you!



Author's Response:

Oooooh, you went to the website too? I have never finished it (RL took over at one point) although it was always on the backburner in my mind; and then Internet standards changed, and I thought I should re-do everything, and, um. "Later, I will! I promise!" is my motto!

I'm really glad you liked it, it was, I thought, my best contribution to the wide, wide world and the wild, wild word of ST:TOS fandom!

I'll think about putting it in order though - I think, when I first put my stories up on this site, the "series" thing wasn't yet implemented and I never bothered with it later on...

Thank you for your heart-warming review <3

Weeee! What a lovely one to finish with (ok yes it is the next-to-last (for now? hopefully....) but being alphabettincally the last helps (and I read Fabric first of all, by chance).

I love the Northern Star, and the "fat-and-lines" comparison carrying on the honored tradition of K/S comparison.



Author's Response:

Well, thank you!

I don't get many readers and even less comments, and so every single one is much cherished \o/ I haven't written anything in ages, in part because when I re-read my fic, I tend to wince a little too much ;-) and as to this series, well; I think I said everything that needed to be said.

I'm quite proud of the Northern Star thing, too :-)

Kirk and Sock by Farfalla Rated: All Audiences starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

Cuddling inside on a cold wintry day. This is a triple drabble (300 words), or as we in the Trek world might say, a "tribble". (Yes, you may all throw real tribbles at me for that.) And this is dedicated to the missing "P" key on my keyboard, whose disappearance left me with a difficult-to-press nub and many, many typed examples of Jim being madly in love with Sock.
