I'm enjoying this story up to this point:

"...the damages are irreparable-" "If they are irreparable, Ambassador, I cannot claim to understand the validity of 'reparations'..."

?

I'm just as confused as the Romulan commander. If they had nothing to do with Nero - and the Federation has acknowledged that - why ask for reparations from the Romulans in this timeline?

 

This certainly doesn't put the Federation in a good light. Is that the point here?

Cute story, I like the start. I just want to point out that Meet the Kirk's should be Meet The Kirks, no apostrophe because its plural people we are meeting.



Author's Response:

Thank you. Thank you for the correction as well, but I am going to keep it the way that it is because I like it.

This was truly a pleasure to read. One question: why is Jim's mother Catherine and not Wynona? Every time I saw it, it sort of jerked me from the story.



Author's Response:

Thank you, I am pleased that you liked the story.  As for Catherine the answer is two fold;  I made a conscious decission to not go by novels or reboot, but by what was in the original series, which never gave any definitive name to the woman.  That brings me to the second reason, Catherine was my mom's name.

Envy by Kitsune-chan Rated: Mature Content (Teen) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 10]
Summary:

A de-aged Spock fic, and an answer to a prompt on the kink meme:

Kirk/Spock de-aged Spock, jealousy
Okay, I'm a huuuge Fan of de-aged fics (there really aren't enough fics of it xD), so I really would love to see a de-aged Spock who's totally smitten with Kirk.
Spock is attached to Jim and poor Jim is being cock-blocked by the little fellow and can't get near any of his lovely Ladies. (Of course in the end he and grown up Spock will be happily together). Jim humors him 'cause he's totally smitten with cute, adorable little Spock (who uses that to manipulate him).
Then let's throw Spock Prime in who's also really doting on Jim (much to the dismay to little Spock).
Lot's of jealousy, possessiveness and uberfluff please xD
The longer the better though of course I'm happy with anything :)

No underaged sexuality, despite mini-Spock's efforts. Also warning for an open relationship between Kirk and Spock Prime (technically not infidelity, so I didn't put it in warnings)

Author's Response:

Thank you for reviewing! I'm glad you liked it :)


Next update might take a bit (finals are currently attempting to murder me), but I'll have all the free time in the world two weeks from now. Plus writing's how I procrastinate, so I might be able to get at least a short chapter out.

Hi, Sam, may I make an observation? Many writers are guilty of one, simple biological error in reference to Spock. As a denizen of a desert planet, his body could not be hotter than Kirk's. See, if that were the case, Vulcans would overheat on their very hot planet. I think I've only seen a couple of fanfics in all the decades of fanfic that got that part right. Spock would love the heat radiating from Kirk, just like any desert-dwelling creature seeks the heat from a hot rock, because his body temp is cool. His standard uniform would include thermal underwear. Sounds logical?



Author's Response:

Sorry, no.  Not really.  On the surface your argument does indeed sound logical  However, in discussing this you've used the example of cold blooded creatures on Earth, with iron based blood, but in lower gravities and with lower blood temperatures.  The variables to be taken into account are that hemolytic (copper based) blood oxidises blue, not green and carries oxygen with less than a quarter of the efficiency of iron based blood.  Therefore Vulcan muscular processes would have to work harder to achieve the same adenosine triphosphate replenishment.  This could conceivably be by some sort of symbiotic relationship with microorganisms which are anaerobically highly efficient, not an improbable thing on a low oxygen planet (but that is pure speculation on my part).  It is also conceivable that such efficiency could be achieved within higher density muscle fibres than that found in humans.

There would also have to be a vanadium component in Vulcan blood for Vulcans to bleed green (to provide the yellow component of the colouring) which would futher complicate the equation.  Finally, Vulcans are presumably warm blooded, not cold blooded.  (I could be wrong, but how would a cold blooded creature achieve the 'plak tow' which is descibed as the 'blood fever,' a metabolic state, without the internal mechanism to heat it's own blood?).  So many variables, together with the fact that we are talking about a warm blooded alien species here, would suggest to me that it would be most likely that Vulcans would have adapted to the temperature of their home world which is hotter than Earth.

But your review was thoughtful and intelligent, which I appreciate!  Thank you so much for having the courtesy to point this out to me.  I find this sort of discussion very intersting and stimulating.

Changing Your Stars by Wizards_Pupil Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 22]
Summary:

Looking back, Jim could tell it had been an utterly ridiculous idea with little hope of success. Of course, that's why he had decided to do it. Jim Kirk always beat the odds, even if he had to pass himself off as a Vulcan to do it. Admittedly, riding a sehlat and using a lance was a bit more than he initial bargained for. A story inspired by A Knights Tale.

The premise sounded good but... what Romulans? How do they fit in here? Also, you need to get someone to beta for you, okay? For eg., when you pluralize a word you don't use apostrophes, so Vulcans, not Vulcan's.

Date: 08/28/2013 Title: Chapter 12: A Safe Place

A number of glaring errors in an otherwise interesting chapter need to be addressed. In para 1: a capitol is a building housing a legislative body; a capital - with regard to a city - means the main city of a country in which is located that country's governing body. Two different words, two different spellings.

 

In the third to laugh para: wonder means to speculate curiously about something; wander means to walk about aimlessly. These are juvenile errors and should have been noted by your beta.

 

Finally, from which door of the Enterprise did the landing party leave? Landing parties beam down because the Enterprise cannot land. The other alternative is a shuttlecraft that can actually land on a planet, unlike the Enterprise.



Author's Response:

Thank you if you were trying to be constructive, I appreciate those trying to help me but I have to say that for me, this is a hobby. This is writing I do for fun it is not a novel and though I often recheck my chapters for grammatical errors, sometimes I don't have time. I'm a little offended that you think I require a beta, i have quite a few stories on numerous sites and I think I write my work quite well on my own. Nevertheless, as this is something I do purely because I enjoy doing it and my readers enjoy the ideas, I can assure you that there will be accidental mistakes throughout the entire story. If that is an issue with you, please refrain from reading my work or simply refrain from pointing out those mistakes unless you feel that it is advice I may need. Rest assured my typos are nothing more than a slip of the thumb or the occasional bout of distraction but again, thank you for your input. Happy readings

You have a rare talent for writing short stories, which is not as easy as one might think. Loved this!

Cute story but, at the start the pre-op and post-op diagnosis are exactly the same, as if the operation hadn't been successful.

'Preoperative diagnosis:
Closed transverse fracture of right distal radius with displacement of wrist and hand

Postoperative diagnosis:
Closed transverse fracture of right distal radius with displacement of wrist and hand'



Author's Response: There aren't many medical details I'll defend about this fic (it's a total Frankenstein job with bits bummed from all over Google) but that bit is actually legit. The post-op diagnosis is often the same as the pre-op. It just means that Bones thought Spock had a broken arm, and when he opened him up, he found a broken arm. Thanks for commenting!
