| PLwrite chapter 5 . 6/26
This is a wonderful story and a very clever integration of P&P with ST. Very well done. I read this some years ago and enjoyed it, but failed to comment. I'm sorry for the delay. I've been away from ST fandom for some time, enjoying JAFF recently and this pulled me back across.
Several things I really like here ... your portrayal of Spock's confusion and dignity and self-involved outlook (at least at the beginning) takes cues from Darcy but read so well into this character and make him more understandable in his alienness. Also, Uhura's ambition and self-assuredness are very in character for her, but you've stretched them to prejudice which is an interesting take on her character and makes her more flawed and young than I'm used to seeing her. Which is great. Also, loved Amanda and the irritating VSA folks. Great story. Thanks for sharing it.

A very clever incorporation of Pride & Prejudice without being trite or taking anything away from your interpretation of the canon characters and their very original romance.
I especially appreciated the role of unreasoning negative bias when Sarek, ignoring Uhura's rescue of his colleague, stoked his fear that the human was a mite too important to his already disappointing son. It's not often used with such skill, and rather than having the perpetrator an already unpleasant characters such as Lady Catherine DeBurgh, using Spock's father made it far more visceral.

So I devoured this because it was delicious. I love your interpretation of Spock...rebellious and insecure while trying to balance these unfamiliar emotions with logic! You perfectly capture his stuggle and made me fall in love with both of his halfs. Uhura is good here too, almost blinded by her ambitious but she develops and grows, gaining some perspective, which I love. You don't just throw them together. They have to first overcome the cultural divide and the barriers within themselves. It's very realistic and engaging. And this is actually one of my favorite versions of AOS Jim. He's charming, charismatic and a natural born leader, all the things that make that character special while simultaneously he's young, reckless and immature which is unique to this reboot universe. I'm just heartbroken knowing that Spock's going to lose Vulcan and Amanda. You have shown command of the most beautiful and complex aspects of these characters. Excellent stroytelling. Thanks for writing :)

Section 6. Laf tor: good job
She is a top linguistic student who speaks Vulcan. Although most humans would not be able to speak his name, she undoubtedly would be able to do so.
It would seem that the academy was remiss in their cultural diversity instruction. How could a fourth year xenolinguistic student not know about Vulcan culture?

I really enjoyed both of your stories! I love Spock and Nyota and I think you nailed how they would have come to care about each other. I hope you write more about them!

So cute! I kept mentally singing "Pride and Prejudice... in SPAAAACE!" as I read (to the tune of 'Pigs in SPAAACE', obviously), and want to give you full props for writing such a successful mash-up!

Wow, this was amazing. Thanks for sharing such a great story!

Wonderful! Thank you for this story!

Read this last night and it is the best uhura/spock origins story i have ever read, the way you combined pride and prejudice with this fits perfectly and the fact that uhura is career driven and oblivious for the first half feels like the most "logical" way these could find each other.
Your very talented and i hope you continue your writing at some point... Thank you.

I enjoyed this so much, you have no idea! Once I realised it was modelled on P&P I could not stop smiling. You adapted the story to fit perfectly, by the way.
My only minor criticism is that I think Uhura would know more about Vulcan culture than she did at first here, having studied the language extensively.
But that's nothing compared to how much I genuinely loved reading this story. Thank you so much for writing it!

I enjoyed it so much, it is sad to see it end.
This is a truly remarkable story, deserving all the stars available to be given for it.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of art.
Oh, and thanks for dispelling Gaila's notion that Vulcans only have sex once every seven years.

I had meant to say she was acting a bit like a child, though her age could well justify her behavior. Now that she has come to the realization for herself, I couldn't be happier.
Well, I could. You have me falling in love with Spock all over again! What a truly sad, but wonderful chapter.
| J-Nynja chapter 2 . 1/20/2014
Dare I say you portray Spock a lot more logically than Roberto Orci himself? LOL
What a fantastic chapter that has brought a lot of pieces to light and then been set out to solve a riddle. Yet, there's no puzzle here - Spock is falling in desperate human love, and he's quite logical about it.
I imagine it will be exciting to read how he fails.
Great chapter again.

You write very well, though I thought the chapter just a bit too long and daunting at first.
I have really enjoyed reading combatant Nyota, and it seems entirely natural how their relationship has evolved. This is the real deal, and most refreshing. Not that romantic portrayals are not heartwarming, but your story is heart-reviving.
On to chapter two!
