Wow, what a plot twist. Twins and then a kidnapping scandal. This is a huge cliffhanger and you CAN'T leave us hanging like this! Please, please write and update!

(My phone won't let me log in. Damn this blackberry!)
So I was like "whuuuut?" Over the Sarek-kidnapped-someone deal and I still can't quite buy it but I suppose crazier shit has slipped through the hands of Starfleet so I'll just let it pass in favor of focusing on what the hell just happened.
I was actually feeling something other than annoyance for Scarlett. It's not that I hate her, it's just attitude and lack of authority respect but now it makes sense. I felt sad when I got to the part about her husband dying and then having to think that her son is probably dead too.
Usually such lengthy back stories on OCs are boring or unnecessary and I try to skip over them but this was FAR different (in a positive way).
It was a chance to understand how she could hate Vulcans (which is usually only seen by enemies of the Federation) and be so against the marriage of Spock and McCoy. I read it and suddenly she seems like someone who I almost wish was canon.
I'm glad McCoy is keeping the baby though I raised an eyebrow at the twins thing because I see it a lot. I feel bad for Spock too though because he keeps getting into trouble by being caught off guard and then freaking out (in his own Vulcan way) because he doesn't know how to react.
Over all: this chapter was extremely intriguing.
Update at your own pace (since I always see reviews demanding things sooner) and know that I gladly await the next installment.

OMG, poor Scarlet. That really explains why she acted the way she did with Spock. No wonder she hates Vulcans. And her comments about Starfleet finally make sense. At least Bones is choosing to keep the babies.

This is AWESOME! I LOVE IT! It's a very original idea. I can't wait to hear more.

I really, REALLY don't understand why other readers hate Scarlett. She is a smart, confident woman who will take no bullshit and on a top of that she is looking after McCoy's wellbeing when all others are only after making Spock happy. Her advices are good (if only SOMEONE listened to them in time) and now that Leonard is close to the breakdown, she is the one who is able to calm him down (at least just a little). I wonder if all other readers just blindly look towards happy Spock/McCoy ending and just cannot grasp what trauma it is for Bones, so any “interference” on O’Hara’s behalf makes her the bad guy/woman. Scarlett is the only person who stood by Leonard from the very beginning of this whole mess and I hope she will continue to do it. My utmost respect for creating this character dear author :)

Pregnancy? Ooooh no! :D
I knew there had to be a reason you had him teach sex ed!
Great foreshadowing and plot twist!

I've been hooked on your story ever since I read the first chapter. I try to check as often as possible for new updates and chapters. You really know how to write an excellent story.

I love all the angst in this story! :) I'm relieved that McCoy has a good friend who's on his side. Tho I'm also hoping for mccoys and jims friendship to get better so that bones will have someone to turn to who's actually on the ship(the more friends the Merrier right). Thanks for another awesome chapter!

oh man, you just love torturing poor Bones don't you? lol :frowns in concern: well, this certainly will not get Spock back in Bones's good graces :S and in all honesty, I have to say again that I really don't like Scarlett.
Would Bones really terminate the pregnancy? It just does not seem like something he would do, Spock or no Spock. Oh, why was Jo so unfriendly towards Spock when she was on board? In all honesty, I've expected her to be fascinated by him...
What the hell M'Benga?

AMAZING! AMAZING! You always go way outside the box for your twists and turns. I am in awe. AMAZING work.
| angel's lil devil angel 8/4/11 . chapter 17
Yay, now this is the part I was looking forward to. I like how Bones is starting to want Spock around. Complete turn around from before. I hate to imagine what you have in store for Bones next.
| Livana Mingan 8/4/11 . chapter 17
YET ANOTHER AMAZING CHAPTER! PLEASE PLEASE CONTINUE BECAUSE IT IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL SO FAR!
| T'Spirk 8/4/11 . chapter 17
I hope Bones doesn't terminate. Update soon.
