|Reviews for 5 Times James Kirk Almost Died And One He Didn't|
| ForestSprite chapter 6 . 3/8/2012
I feel horrible. I've read this story at least 6 times (maybe more but definitely not less) and I don't think I've ever commented on it. So, as you can probably tell with the previous sentence I absolutely love this story. I love the characterization of Kirk as someone willing to do what he feels is necessary for his ship, and the loyalty of the crew to their mad/brilliant captain. Love. Love. Love. That's all I have for it. I keep coming back to this story. My favorite still is Act 2. That one always gets me, my heart breaks a little. Lovely.

Ah MAN, that was the best ending ever. "When have I ever done otherwise ..." Wonderful. Thank you!

What? I can't believe I haven't commented this fic yet? How this could happen is beyond me when I just LOVE this story :)

Hey...is the full security team the reason why there seem to be ridiculous no.s of redshirts sent down to away missions on TOS (who then promtly die)? Or is that just my crazy mind finding non-existent patterns

I absolutely LOVED IT.

Brilliant story. Absolutely brilliant! I loved it. Poor crew of the Enterprise, having to put up with a captain that they dearly love but who doesn't seem to know the value of his own life.
"Wet blankets, the lot of them." Brilliant.
Thanks for writing and sharing this story with us!

"Nothing you said was funny."
This story was... Sad. This feeling of pain that's there but isn't crushing...
This chapter was great.

...His eyes flickered to the doorway where the bridge crew of the Enterprise hovered, looking like they meant business, even if they weren't sure what that business was anymore. "...
...I think I'm gonna be in trouble for a little while. At least games of poker with potential enemies in the storage bay of the Enterprise isn't on the DND list."
"Do Not Do." He shrugged. "I'm on restriction from death."
Jack laughed, standing with his men. "Well, I suppose that's only fair."...
...For a moment, Spock could almost see the world as Jim did, an endless parade of choices and options all bent beneath his hand to form a future where the Enterprise always flew, always pushed boldly into the unknown, cared for by the best and brightest of every generation. Sometimes that would require Jim to put his own life on the line; sometimes it wouldn't. When it did, it would be up to the crew, the officers, those who gave their loyalty to no one above James Kirk, to make sure their mad and brilliant captain kept the helm.
He would sacrifice anything for them. They could do no less than fight for him in return.
Spock let the barest smile curve his mouth, shutting his eyes as he offered a slight bow.
Mission accepted, Captain...
that last part was pretty awesome. thank you for this, it was good reading!

...I followed you here, he replied in challenging response. I will follow you out, or I will not go at all. Captain...
...So," Sulu said, pinning a printout onto the wall of Captain Kirk's quarters right where he couldn't help but see it. "This is the list of restricted activities we drew up while you were comatose."
Jim shifted with a faint frown, too tired to argue but too incredulous to let that pass. "You all came up with a list of restricted activities?"
Sulu nodded, studying the list thoughtfully. "It isn't comprehensive, of course, but that's what Item 96 is indented to cover: 'Any and all activities, recreational or exploratory, that have greater than a fifteen-percent chance of resulting in Captain James T. Kirk coming to harm, serious or superficial, are restricted'. Pretty ingenious, don't you think?"
"I think," the captain said dryly, "that it sounds an awful lot like something a green-blooded hobgoblin would write. And I'm just wondering when this turned into a democracy."...
a moment of awwwww in all the crack-fic-ery. )

...Let me see if I'm understanding this situation," Bones muttered to Spock, adjusting his grip on the phaser. "They kidnapped Jim to sacrifice him to appease their god...
...After all the effort I've put in to keeping that man alive, he is not allowed to be sacrificed to a random pagan god. Or any gods, for that matter...
...I'll see what I can do about having him chipped with some kind of sub-dermal locator."
It was the most logical plan Spock had heard all day...
this borders on crack fic. it is awesome.

...That's a hilarious suggestion," McCoy muttered dryly, "coming from you." Which made no sense, but that seemed to be the way the whole confrontation was headed, so Spock let it pass without comment...
...Perhaps then, Captain, I might initialize the meld. For the sake of your plan," he added when Kirk opened his mouth.
Jim frowned thoughtfully. "My plan?"
"Yes, Captain. To use a Vulcan mind meld to communicate your cipher so that I might help with your calculations."
"Oh." Jim nodded. "That plan. Yeah, sure, that sounds great. More like something that isn't less than what I've already planned, anyway...
...They're teaching a bunch of green academy students to be defeatable. Someone out there is stupid...
this fic is made of awesome.

my favorite parts:
...In which the Captain's Priorities are Established as Different Than Pretty Much Everyone Else's...
...and the situation began to make a horrible kind of Kirkian sense...
...Kirk thought he detected an undercurrent of "I'm serving under a moron who lacks the self preservation instincts of a lemming" hidden somewhere in his eyebrows...
this was awesome. )

Oh my God. "He's getting reckless"? Really, Jim? Spock is the reckless one? : I am not amused (well, okay, maybe a little bit).

I looove your writing! Also, the line "...swimming over with all the speed and grace of a deeply concerned Vulcan." killed me. Seriously, that is the best line I've ever read, ever.
