|Reviews for 5 Times James Kirk Almost Died And One He Didn't|
| Storm's Pride chapter 2 . 5/1/2012
Ok, so usually I'm really bad about leaving reviews because I always feel like an inarticulate idiot, but this is a story (you are an author) that I always end up coming back to reread every few months, and this chapter, in particular, always gives me shivers. Like, wow. It is amazing beyond belief, with an intensity to it that there isn't nearly enough of. (Or, alright, maybe I just don't find enough, but I read a LOT of fiction, and I could probably count the things that have made me feel this strongly on my fingers. Also, there's the fact that this gives me shivers every time I read it, not just the first.)
I am (totally ridiculously amazingly) in awe of your writing. Particularly just how much depth your use of repetition adds; I can't come up with a strong enough way to convey just how much I adore this.
Mostly letting you know how awesome this (and you) is (are?). And wanted to thank you for writing this, and sharing it.
...Yeah, I still feel like an inarticulate idiot. Which isn't going to change no matter how much I edit this, so I'm just going to submit now.

I laughed really hard as I was reading this story. I love how you have Jim always ending up coming so close to death. It's funny how well this all turned out. I think you kept everyone fairly well in character and I think that it was a well written story. Thanks for the laughs!

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.
| Beloved Daughter chapter 6 . 1/16/2012
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.
