A very interesting beginning to an exploration of the Sarek/Spock relationship. I know you haven't gone anywhere with it in a while, but it would be very good to see it taken further.

It's been more than a few years since you posted it, and an update is probably not likely... but this was a great teaser chapter and I'll add it to my alerts list just in case you do update sometime. :)
Your characterisation is what has drawn me to this story, and some of your others (Begin Anew and Holograph). I love the interactions of Spock and Sarek, and the way you demonstrate their conflicting perspectives on the issues they face. Sarek's inner conflict and realisation in this chapter was beautifully done, and did not fall into the trap of 'telling' as so many stories do.
I don't have any negative comments at the moment. I truly hope to see you continue this fic! :)

Yes I really enjoyed this peak into Spocks childhood. If you can call it that. Its like everything to make him (Spock) Vulcan was included, but not much of a childhood although his accepted way of what life was and meant to be.
Apparently, there is not much for Vulcans to socialize with. The adults teach the children and all others meditate. I realize there is an old date on this story. Gave me courage to say anything.

This was a wonderful premise, I have never read many stories about Spock's relationship with his father, but I really enjoyed this beginning... I know it's been years since you started this story, but I hope you'll write more!

Fascinating beginning to this story. Poor Spock, he is so used to facing his father's disapproval, he automatically assumes he's in trouble when Sarek shows up at school to take him home.
Clearly, even though he's gotten the message that he is, and may never be, good enough to win his father's approval and support, he is a very superior child indeed.
I love this story and hope that you will have a chance to finish it sometime soon. I'm gradually working my way through your Sarek/Amanda/Spock stories, and I am extremely impressed with your writing. This is just outstanding work.

Although you wrote and posted this five years ago, I hope that you're willing to continue. Spock's dogged focus on his studies, an accepted venue in which a Vulcan (even a half-Vulcan) can excel, indicates just how insecure the poor kid is. I'd like to see the outside world nudge the stick that seems to be permanently affixed up Sarek's butt. Will Sarek yield some of his stubbornness to put Spock's welfare first for once? Will Amanda figure out that she needs to raise holy human Hell to protect her son's well-being? If neither step up to the plate, will Subor find a way to help Spock despite his domestic circumstances? I would love to find out!

I completely love the way you portray their family and each member separately. And apart from that, your stories are always quite unique in their ideas!
This is an interesting story that indeed would explain the reason Spock decided to leave from his house at 18 and join Starfleet, while turning his back on VSA. Therefore I will add my review to the long list of those who BEG you to finish this intriguing story. Please? :-)

Wow! Somehow I have never read this before. I thought I'd read everything you wrote. It's very good, and I am sorry to see it'll probably never be finished. You've left me with a very curious mystery about what exactly is going on. I personally suspect a bit of an emotional problem ... no friends, no peers for Spock, but mostly he's a genius that likes school a lot.

This premise is fascinating. I didn't know I wanted it until I read your story. Please update soon, if no inconvenience.

want more! I love these kinds of stories and I want to see what comes next!
| Scifigrocerygal 7/26/09 . chapter 1
A very good chapter, and I hope one of many someday! lol
This is an excellent story about Spock and I feel it is very true to his personality. They seemed to come alive as I read.
| Lethe9 7/12/09 . chapter 1
Poor Spock! It seems like he just can't win. Either he's doing too badly or he's doing too well. I hope Sarek will ease up on him in the future.
Once more, a great story to read. Your insights into the characters are very interesting, and the underlying psychology is fascinating to think about, if a little dark. You also have a real talent for setting the scene without banging on about grass and flowers (some people do it well, granted, but after the sixth time, it makes you want to chuck all that lovely scenery right at their head).
I would love to read more of this too. You've already written so much-I'm going to be entertained for quite some time. As always, thank you kindly for writing!
