This fic is the most amazing thing I never knew I needed.

Wow I love this a lot. I love how they get along and everything I just. I can't form sentences to tell you how awesome this is. The other reviewers did a pretty good job. It's so well written, the characterizations are wonderful, I bloody well love Tuvok anyways, their interaction at the end (the idea that Vulcans can be casually physical / intimate like that, just friendly-ish, even when one has a bondmate and the other wants another), the random bits of McCoy-ception (he's on Spock's brain and it's great). Ahhhhhh.

Thank you for writing+posting it ;w;



Author's Response:

wow!!  sweet!!  *bounce, wag, grin*  I always liked Tuvok, too.  Tim Russ did a great job, fighting Berman tooth and nail to maintain Nimoy's work, and it showed.  and I figure, a race with such limited fertility wouldn't have the motivations humans do to try and keep people from having sex.  far from it, I reckon.  it's just that Spock didn't count as Vulcan, to most of the people he grew up with. 

Glad ye liked it, thanks!

Almost a year has passed since Jim first found Spock alive and both escaped from slavery.  Life in the Fringeworlds is sometimes hard, but they're *free.*  But now the race who first enslaved them has applied for membership in the Federation, and both men realize -- although they don't want to do it,  they have to go back to Earth.  They cannot stand by and watch the slavers be Admitted.

I spent all day reading this liferuiner and it's two prequels. Very emotional. I'm sorry I can't offer a more in depth review, but it's almost midnight and I got up at like 6:50 am and I've literally been reading this almost constantly.


Experiencing Spock's physical and mental trauma, when Jim rescued Spock and they got away, when Jim's wire was first really discussed and all the times he used it seriously afterwards, when they rescued those other slaves using her image and everything with with Sek'hel and her death... then later, the reunions between Jim and Spock and McCoy and Sarek and FINALLY, FINALLY AMANDA, all those support tapes! Not to mention the full developement of their bond, just getting to watch them together. Watching them through all of this.

Ugh. I'm frazzled. These are amazing and well done and great. Thanks for writing, again, sorry I can't be more eloquent.

Ahhh, Syvek can be such a cheeky little bugger, but I love reading these stories! I'm real interested in the de-aged one, though if there's that much angst it'll prolly break my heart. I can only cross my fingers and hope for some fluff to prevail.

Thank you for writing~

So out of this WHOLE story, the ONE thing that bugs me is political; I believe someone in the village of the People would have been a better spokesperson, instead of Jim, simply because Jim lived a life completely seperate from the rest of the human population. I would have been happy if he'd just asked Len along, too. Alas, politics.

The Vulcan Who Fell to Earth by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 259]
Summary:

All done!

 

This is in answer Skutch's An Alien on Earth challenge, which goes like this:

In the 21st century when Earth people are not yet aware of life on other planets, a Vulcan who was sent to study Earth is forced to land because his ship is damaged. He speaks English because Vulcan has been studying Earth for quite some time now. The ship is damaged beyond repair so he manages to destroy it completely (wouldn't want people finding alien spaceships lying around) before he faints. The Vulcan is found by a 18 year old boy who takes him to his apartment (have fun coming up with how he manages to do that). The Vulcan wakes up soon and the boy wants to take a look at his wounds. He is too weak to resist and he fails to push the boy away before he removes his shirt and sees wounds covered with green blood.

I don't want him to accept the fact that the man is an alien too quickly, after all it really would be quite shocking, so please take your time with the story. Feel free to continue any way you think would be best, perhaps change the beginning of the story too, if you'd like.
I'd like to see a strange sort of friendship first evolve slowly, James trying to teach Spock about his culture, Spock having a very hard time understanding certain concepts, Spock finding himself telling James things he should not be telling a human, protecting him from people who cause him harm, etc.

 

This will probably be a very long fic, and I'm not sure where it's going or who else I'm going to bring in, but....

A couple of points for the sake of clarity:

1. Spock's full Vulcan, not a half-breed (This is AU; I can do tht).

2. Spock does have emotions. His people are strong and stoic, but not particularly repressed. So he may actually smile once in awhile.

Inevitable by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 481]
Summary:

Now done!!!!

This is in response to Starlight Scribe's An Early Start challenge:

Summary:

An AU

Spock has been enrolled in the academy for *** when Pon Farr hits and 'something' calls to him out in the city. Following the call he finds a runaway James Kirk.

The Expected happens but instead one of them running off at dawn they stay together and build a life. I would like to see Mpreg with an at least remotely possible explanation!!

It is your choice if Jim joins fleet or not and how the story goes from there.

This will probably be pretty damned mature; be warned because that's all the warning I'm going to give. I haven't decided about the mpreg; please let me know if you think I should and if so, who gets knocked up? And away we go...

Date: 01/17/2012 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3: In Which Some of the Pieces Are Reassembled

I can't remember reading another fic that has addressed how Spock would deal with 'that day' as well as this one. A lot of fics simply brush it off, because it is a very heavy topic and not easy to deal with in writing. I guess even the movie brushes it off a little, at the end.

Admittedly I tend to avoid things I think will make me sad, so I dunno how much that can mean. But this was frankly beautiful, and believable, and somehow subtle? I guess nothing written here was too crazy, or too radical to prevent it from really hitting home. I mean, I cried at the end. The ending was kind of perfect.

The involvement of outside characters and the kind of varying depths of emotional representation from them; I mean, sometimes it would be completely from Uhura's point of view, and the scene where we missed out on Spock's conversation with his father, but followed Bones instead. And Sarek's brief insight and Scotty's appearences helped put everything in perspective. On top of that, I loved how you wrote everyone. I guess the loose range of point of views was different and very effective, and really flowing and interesting.

So. Very good. Thank you very much for writing!

First of all, thanks for writing this and making my Christmas a little brighter. I'm sorry you have to work through the weekend. Happy Holidays to you too!

Secondly, Amanda's snicker doodles would probably be amazing.

Thirdly, I really hope that PADD does the same thing as our computers in regards to deleting - that there is a trashcan where 'deleted' contents are stored in until someone dumps that too. Because that footage could be, like. The ultimate keepsake. I've been imagining Jim and Spock watching it for many anniversaries to come if there is a happy ending. (Which, you know. I would like a lot.)

I love everyone in this fic. It's so well written. Again, thanks for writing and happy holidays! I look forward to the next installment!



Author's Response:

I'm not even sure what snicker doodles are (some kind of cookie?)  I just picked them because they have a silly sounding name, and because the thought of a Vulcan enjoying them seems hilarious!

HELL YES.

I LOVE this story. I'm so happy for a new chapter!

Seeing a Jim with all these 20th century conceptions and whatnot is really interesting. This last one was a bit of a shocker, and the way Spock decided to react was even more so. It seems almost cruel, though I kinda think Spock mostly just wants to show Kirk that someone close to him was the same way, if the hints of Grayson's feelings for Kirk in the first journal excerpt we saw was indicative. But when Jim reads that, it'll completely change the way he sees Grayson. It might basically take away Jim's dead best friend.

Sooo thank you for writing!



Author's Response:

No, I think it will open Jim's eyes to the fact that 'queers' (his word, not mine) are just ordinary folk, people he probably knew and interacted with, including Grayson. He needs to start seeing people as people, not as stereotypes.

Date: 03/15/2012 Title: Chapter 10: Through the Looking Glass and Aboard a Starship

WOOOAAAHHHH oh no

I hope they believe hiiimmm if this is the same Khan but really you wouldn't cliffhanger it if it wasn't right.

This chapter had tons of good bits, and lots of oh-my-god-he-is-a-fossil moments. I loved (and was a little ashamed at loving so hard) his reaction to Uhura, especially when he called her -brown sugar-, because sometimes you see clips of Nichols calling people sugar and aaarrghhh I loved it. Mentioning 'breaking the color barrier' was kinda hilarious. Even better when you think about the whole 'first white-black kiss on tv' thing.

Also the whole Cold War thing, I was worried what would happen when he mentioned it but it turned out just fine. Chekov's so great. With all that blushing I got the impression of a bit of a man-crush and it was cute.

With this motley crew observed by 90s!Jim you really are reminded of how this was, like, a retro-futurism vision, because everyone is so straight-up one culture (except for Sulu, who thankfully doesn't have a painful accent, and is a mix of Japanese and Chinese, I think, but still.) Even Spock, the one guy with two really different mixed cultures, tries to only show one side of his heritage. What we really see now is the whole melting pot effect. So I dunno, that was fun.

Good to see Spock again, to see them kind of getting along.

So, I love this story [: As always, thank you for writing. And I wanna say thanks for spreading your time around between all your different projects! Seeing any one of them update is always a treat.
