I like how this keeps you wondering what Kirk is up to until the end. I also like the idea of their bond as a compulsion Spock can't quite control.

What You Love by irrelevant Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 23]
Summary:

Combined episode tag and fallout scenario for Plato’s Stepchildren, one of the most disturbing (for me) TOS episodes ever.  Consent issues aren't always about sex--not wholly, at any rate.

Oh, well done!  I've been waiting for you to finish this before I read it.  It was great.  You turn a fine phrase, and it's nice getting mostly plot without pron for once.  :)  Have more confidence in yourself, too!  Beyond some basic things a beta could catch for you, your story is awesome! And I hearts your analogies.  Kirk's chess as George Custer from the prologue leaps to mind. :)

I try to channel Kirk and Spock in my daily life...a never-ending puzzle, an adventure, and ultimately, hopeful.  Looking forward to your next work!

Summary:

Jim is subjected to a sadistic test. Spock is very confused. Bones keeps getting interrupted. This is what true love is all about.

Two thumbs up!

Very well written, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I timed it perfectly, starting to read on day 23, so I only had to go to bed, and get up this morning for the final chapter.  I commend you for choosing such an awesome update schedule. 

A very satisfying end, and especially so since I was initially skeptical of the premise, but you made it work so beautifully, I commend your skill as a writer!

Very much loving this story so far!  I like the development of the relationship over the course of actual missions, and the interplay and involvement of the secondary charaters and OFCs is very enjoyable.  Kirk and Spock both show a depth of character which is in keeping with my picture of them, and, while still affected by their histories, are well-adjusted enough to avoid angsty pit-falls.



Author's Response:

Awww, thank you so much! I'm so glad you're enjoying it, and hope you continue to :D

Well-written and a lot of fun, even if the romance was a little quick.  But, soul-mates in any universe, what can you do?

Enjoyed it thoroughly.  Particularly Spock's insatiable curiosity about all thing human.

Wow, this was incredibly satisfying on so many levels.  The sex was awesome (by which I mean, worth not skimming over), the sexual tension was great, the plot elements and missions well executed. And posting it as complete, 150k words in one go, SUCH a treat. 

I would NOT object to a sequel.  I want more Kirk and Spock hashing out their relationship after this...there are still things left unsaid, I think!

Well, well done.

Summary:

In response to the Prompt:  Starfleet needs these two tribes to call a truce on a 500 year devastating war but can't get them to agree except only to one thing: Jim Kirk. The two sides would fuck and cum into Jim and consider it as conquering the other tribe into submission.

And since you ask, yes, I am ashamed of myself.

It's such a treasure when something Awesome and Long gets posted! I was thrilled to start reading last night, and will be even more thrilled as you post the last several chapters. 

It took some suspension of disbelief to get into the AU, especially Jim not being in command.  It's hard to wrap my mind around him as a subordinate, and likewise Spock as a consummate leader.  But it's working for me now (I'm in the middle of Chap 4).  The characterization is great, and I, too, love a smart, savvy Kirk.  Well-adjusted!Spock also gets me going, so I like that too.

Very well done, and thank you for brightening my baby's naptimes (while I'm nursing him to sleep or bouncing him in the hammock, there is NOTHING to do but read fic on my phone.)  You ROCK!



Author's Response:

I feel the same way about other people's long fics; there aren't enough of them out there!  Glad I could provide some 'downtime' entertainment (I envy your hammock).  Strangely, I'm not much of an AU reader myself, but it was part of the specific request for this fic, and I have to say that it took me a little while to envision it myself.  As I was in the process of writing it, I had to keep reminding myself that Spock outranked Kirk, because one get's so used to thinking of them in canon terms ;)

I am always thrilled when someone posts a nice long story. Finished it last night, and I agree with the reviewer that said that this story captures the heart of Star Trek. The fact the there is no panacea, only the long slow journey of repair for Earth is also a commendable choice. I liked the development of the K/S relationship (wellAdjusted!Spock is a favorite of mine). If only I could share this story with non-K/S folks for the moral! But perhaps your story will raise awareness a little among the K/S shippers. I encourage you to keep publicizing it on other sites as well for tht reason! It's a subject very close to my heart.

Well done, and I agree that you should have more reviews for such an awesome story.

Author's Response: I love that the story worked so well for you, since, as is probably obvious, it's a subject very close to my heart as well. And while I may have liked to give Kirk and Spock a more suitable future, I knew that wouldn't have been true to the spirit of the story. We, unfortunately, reap what we sow—or those who come after us do. The story has been posted on my LJ and at AO3, though how much awareness it will raise, I can't say. But thanks so much for your wonderful comments. They are very much appreciated.
