Well that cheered up the exceedingly crappy evening that I have been blessed with.
Thank you for an enjoyable read.
| Ahlisha chapter 1 . 3/12/2013
That is well written. :-) I like how these two are written.
| Kittenmommy chapter 1 . 8/1/2011
Loved the TOS connection!
| Kimberly T chapter 1 . 8/18/2005
A most excellent story! And done in only 45 minutes? To quote a certain somebody, "Fascinating." Do write more in this same vein!

Nice! I like the conection to TOS. What fun!
| Bladefanatic chapter 1 . 9/15/2003
Very very good! I truly enjoy the concept of this story!
you need to write more...and soon!
I am adding you to my list of favorites!

Wow! I wrote this thing in 45 minutes to try to meet a deadline for a challenge - I had no idea it'd get this kind of response.
To the person who pointed out Pa'nar syndrome - damn, I *did* look that up and it looks as if the page I used for reference had it wrong. I may repost a draft where I fix that and T'Pol's age (20 is too young to be a Secret Agent sent after badnasties, so T'Pol can't be 37).
To the person who pointed out that T'Pol's fiance had a name: I was *sure* he didn't. Still can't find a reference. Damn. Well, since it would destroy the story to fix it and I like my version better, I'm going to have to ignore it. Maybe Koss is his nickname. (As if Vulcans have nicknames. :-))
To the person who wondered about mind melds and Pon Farr- in the TOS episode "Amok Time" it is established that seven-year-old children are mentally bonded, presumably via a mind meld, to draw them together at the appointed time. I have always assumed from this that melding is an integral part of Vulcan sexuality, and my spackle for "Fusion" is that while all Vulcans possess telepathy, it's been culturally suppressed except through marriage, where the bond is initiated by a healer/priestess and not by the children themselves, and the only people who freely use telepathy are the most powerful ones- who either become healers, or they become stigmatized outcasts. Since Vulcan sexuality is connected to melding, T'Pol could theoretically give her husband Pa'nar syndrome. That's my spackle and I'm sticking to it. :-)
And to the person who pointed out that Vulcans aren't actually smarter than humans: true, but they don't realize this. :-) Even "good" Vulcans tend to believe they're smarter than humans. Hell, Spock believed it for most of his life.
Thanks, everyone who commented!

Pa'nar syndrome, from what I gleaned from the episode, can only be transmitted through Mind Melds; and Pon Farr has no bearing on it-but I could be wrong.
| B.L.A. the Mouse chapter 1 . 7/5/2003
Yeouch. That is GOOD. Keep it up!
| Lisa chapter 1 . 7/5/2003
Excellent story! You got the personality of the Vulcanc down pact. If there were any such thing as "Logical Romance", this would be the one.
| Cate chapter 1 . 7/5/2003
Wonderful story. Great characterization and the not at all sappy even for Vulcans.
| Aeryn Alexander chapter 1 . 7/4/2003
This is very different. I like Skon. He seems really right for T'Pol. I've never imagined her marrying another Vulcan before. This is very cool.
| Catspaw chapter 1 . 7/4/2003
Interesting, very interesting. I've been wondering myself how they are going to resolve how the Vulcans of Archer and company's time see mind melds and how future Vulcans such as Spock and Tuvok see them. Is this the end of the story? I hope not, it seems like there is still more to write.
There is one thing I noticed, though: the disease T'Pol suffers from is Pa'nar Syndrome, not Pa'an, though they do sound rather alike, so it is an understandable mistake.
| JadziaKathryn chapter 1 . 7/4/2003
I like this! What can I say other than the fact that the plot, dialogue, and word choices are all great?
| The Yellow Kid chapter 1 . 7/4/2003
If Vulcans were so much more intelligent, then Humans would both despise and shun them. They certainly would not ask for help. A partnership must be between equals.
Vulcans are simply longer lived and correspondingly educated to a higher standard, not inherently more intelligent.
