The first K/S I've ever read and it still grips me from start to finish. It's one of my top 5 stories in the fandom and I love it to death. After I finished reading it for the first time, I promptly started again the next day because it's just so beautiful.

I just love all your work, be it Abrams or TOS, and I do hope you will soon find the time (and inspiration) to finish "My Mind to Yours".

Thank you for re-posting this, I needed the reminder to re-read one of the best stories ever written in this fandom.

 



Author's Response:

Wow, that's a *lovely* thing to say! Given the number of amazing and talented authors in the fandom, I'm really thrilled you've put this story up there! :)  I've got My Mind To Yours mapped out, but life overtook me and seemed to suck out my writing mojo. :( I aim to finish it and Everyone Deserves Music - I definitely won't abandon them!  I was fiddling with the chapters and it caused this story to show up again in the 'recent' section! :)  Thank you again for your wonderful comment - it's really made my day (and I needed it!!). <3

I have been reading this story again and again since I discovered it and finally wanted to leave you a comment because it is such a beautiful thing. Spock being so uncertain of Jim`s feelings and getting reassurance from his older self in a way he certainly wouldn`t have expected. I especially love Jim`s last line, and just for that I will definitely read it again.

Thank you for sharing your work.

Loved this chapter! Loved Spock in this chapter! Loved that Spock told Zelania she would never be in Federation custody and about the time he stole the Enterprise!
Thank you so much for updating!

Date: 01/26/2012 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

I really love this story - I like the older Kirk and Spock a lot and the way you write them I can easily imagine them in my head. Please don't abandon this story, I so want to know what happens next!

 

By the way, I only registered here to tell you that I love "Daughter of Discord".

I've been a fan of your writing since you started posting on this site and have read almost all your stories.



Author's Response:

Don't wory; I will complete it. Iw ant to see what happens, lol.

Date: 01/30/2012 Title: Chapter 11: An Unusual Passenger

I love how Jim greets his new step-daughter.

I only hope Spock starts behaving better soon. Right now I don't like him very much.

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 04/29/2012 Title: Chapter 14: Explorations

This was great as usual - thank you so much for adding a new chapter!

I loved Jim and Zelania drinking milk shakes and I loved Spock offering her to teach her Vulcan music - finally he's approaching her!

But the end was a real cliff hanger! I am wondering how she will react to this terrible news. This is certainly something to break her.

Please update again soon!

Date: 02/18/2012 Title: Chapter 12: The Enterprise Hilton

Thank you for for the new chapter!

It makes me really sad that Zelenia is so damaged. I do hope Jim (and Spock & the rest of the clan, hopefully) can help her - at least a little. How do you help someone with those kinds of experiences? I'm really looking forward to what you'll be doing with this!

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 04/30/2012 Title: Chapter 15: The Dark Abyss of Pain

This was sad and terrible and beautiful. Jim was all heart - I love him for it.

But oh please, when will Spock finally behave like a dad to Zelania? I wanted to kick him. And yes, I understand his insecurities somewhat but still - no excuse to behave like a d..k. (Sorry).



Author's Response:

He'll get better--eventually.

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 02/29/2012 Title: Chapter 13: A Fragile Balance

Great chapter. Finally Spock seems to behave better. He was really sweet apologising to Zelania and I am really looking forward to the next chapter!

Thank you for this!

Expelled from Paradise by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 50]
Summary:

 

Now Complete!!!!! Thanks to all who read and reviewed.

This is an answer to Bastet's Paradise Lost or Found Challenge, seen below:

Summary:

You must be familar with the TOS episode "The Paradise Syndrome" for this challenge. Kirk and Spock finally admit their feelings to each other (and have shared their first kiss) but haven't been able to get much further than that (interruption, waiting for a right moment...you decide). Then Kirk loses his memory on the planet (and is now known as Kirok). Spock and McCoy finally find Kirk and restore his memory...and we all know that his pregnant wife dies. The idea for the challenge is...what if Miramanee hadn't died? Kirk realizes that once his memory is back, he loves Spock, but can't turn his back on Miramanee either.

For those of you who complain I don't do enough angst, get ready. This story has plenty. It will be multi-chapter, but not as long as the piece I just finished. Enjoy.

Date: 07/08/2012 Title: Chapter 15: Epilogue: Four Years After

I stumbled over this last night as I was browsing the filled challenges and realised I never read it! And I thought I had read all of your stories. And this morning I watched both "The Enterprise Incident" and "The Paradise Syndrome" and so this story definitely had to be read today.

I had always loved the interaction between Kirk and Miramanee, it was so gentle and sweet.

Reading your story I found all of that, but it was so much more. I really loved how you outlined the heart-ache caused to all of them and how you resolved it. And the bit with Commander Tal was simply genius - past actions coming back to bite them in the ass.

I truly enjoyed the epilogue, that Jim got to meet his son and that Spock and Miramanee made peace.

Thank you again for this.



Author's Response:

TYVM. I always figured that the crap they pulled in The Enterprise Incident would eventually catch up to them.

What a great chapter! (And thank you for updating this story! *smooches you*)

Beautiful love scene between Jim and Spock (and frals! Finally frals! I love frals. Hope you didn't have too much trouble handling them...:-))

And Klingons! And Jim being the great tactician we know him as.  When he came to the brigde, I half expected the corbomite maneuver. But this was even better!

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 05/22/2012 Title: Chapter 15: Klingons Aren't Exactly Chatty

Thanks for the new chapter, I really loved it, especially Jim taking care of Spock - that was so sweet! I'm very much looking forward to the next installment of this story, it's getting more exiting with every update!

Glad you're back, I missed you over the weekend!



Author's Response:

Yeah, I was just too blue to write over the weekend. it happens once in awhile.

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 05/23/2012 Title: Chapter 1: This is Going to be Hell on My Complexion

I know how that feels. What usually helps me best is reading one of your stories, mostly it's "Accidentally in Love". And if I feel really, really bad I read the chapter with Spock getting drunk on chocolate milk in Bones' office. It definitely IS one of the funniest scenes ever written.

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 05/27/2012 Title: Chapter 16: Meet the Parents

Wonderful and exiting chapter! I loved Jim meeting Sarek and Amanda in their home on Vulcan and that Spock and his parents have such a loving relationship.

And Khan - You captured his voice perfectly! And of course I'm now sitting here, biting my nails, and waiting to find out who the Vulcan spy on board the Enterprise is!

I'm glad you're back, I was beginning to worry. I hope you're feeling better soon. I'd send you chocolate and cake but it's so hard to put into the reviews. :-)

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 06/13/2012 Title: Chapter 17: Relations, Diplomatic and Otherwise

This is getting curiouser and curiouser!

Loved the "fresh vegetable" comment! I probably giggled as much as Jim did. And of course Sarek's question at the end - great line!

I wonder what Spock is up to and what Chekov has overheard. I cannot bring myself to believe that Spock is Khan's spy (except under influence of Alien Spores or something), but maybe there is a Vulcan onboard that does not look like a Vulcan (like Arne Darvin didn't look like a Klingon in "The Trouble With Tribbles") and he's the spy?

You're really keeping me on the edge of my seat here!

Great work, as usual.

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 06/20/2012 Title: Chapter 20: Well, Duh

Thank you for this. I'm really relieved that Spock is a double agent and one of the good guys. It DID look bad in the last chapter.

Now I'm wondering who beat up Chekov.



Author's Response:

Well, I don't know who beat up Chekov, so.....

Date: 07/06/2012 Title: Chapter 21: Mind Games

You do like cliffhangers, don't you? I liked the chapter very much. So, is Janice Lester on board? I could really imagine her clobbering poor Chekov. Or Janice Rand...  :-)

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 07/20/2012 Title: Chapter 22: Doing What He Does Best

Wow. For a fem-bot, Chapel was a great choice. (I had a mixture of her character and Majel Barrett's Number One in mind when I read the fight scene; a truly terrifying picture!)

I loved the interaction between Jim and Spock - so in love with each other and "breaking up" for duty. I really hope there aren't any more of Khan's spies on the ship, the boys deserve a break.

Reviewer: jimali Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 07/22/2012 Title: Chapter 23: Isn't Life Strange?

Jim as a Vulcan (borrowed from "The Enterprise Incident"?) is a great way to smuggle him into Khan's lair! I'm so looking forward to the next chapter.

Thank you for this



Author's Response:

Oh absolutely and shamelessly borrowed from the Enterprise Incident. Why mess with a proven formula, lol?
