I really enjoy Sarek getting lost in these new sensations just as Amanda is. I love him feeling the sensation of Amanda being tickled and Sarek finding the experience so fascinating that he replicates the experience multiple times.
I love how it's not just new for Amanda, but for Sarek too.

Sybok is not canon for me, and I don’t recall anything in STV that discussed Sybok living with Sarek. Dorothy Fontana, who created Spock’s family, said that Sarek had never been married prior to Amanda, and that Spock had no siblings. So, for me, canon ends with STIV…and can I just say, it makes my fanfic world less muddled?

What I wouldn’t give to see a copy of the Terran-Vulcan edition of Popular Mechanics!
You would think that by this time, Terrans would have figured out that, in many areas, they truly are behind the Vulcans. Otoh, not doing so creates better drama. ;)

So many things made me chuckle here. You just know that Sarek would have some kind of learning curve in the beginning, and I like it that your Amanda is actually a teacher (Spock did say she was, after all.) She’s also grown up for what must be a fairly young age, and not a wilting violet. Love Sarek’s obsession with the idea of a “healthy” female!

I loved this chapter! I love that we got to see all that violence and rage but he never acts on it. He didn’t even drop the guy. He just gently put him down and called security. In the ACOTAR era of hyperviolence, this is just really nice and refreshing to see

It's been a while, so I don't know if this comment will ever be seen (though I hope it is). I read this back when it was first posted (or roughly around that time), and I really enjoyed it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I came back to reread it multiple times over the years. Even now, over a decade later, it still holds a place in my heart and I remember it fondly. I don't have much else to say, but thank you for writing it.

I do love how Sarek goes from wanting to stay as inconspicuous as possible to 'Let's throw the biggest wedding ever to shut my family up'.

"Also, what logical reason could there be for revealing one's self publicly?"
Rereading lines like this when I've already finished the story is great. (First read this years ago)

I do enjoy how Sarek goes from 'We need to be as discreet as possible' to 'Let's invite the media and throw the biggest most extravagant wedding ever, to shut my family up.'
Sarek is logical once it became apparent that discretion and the council would not be enough to protect him he changed tactics and I love it.

Given what I know I wonder if Josef put T'Zena up to it.

thank you for this charming story ;)

What an adorable epilogue! So cute and I just loved the throwback line between Serak and Amanda at the end! That's for the best story I've read in quite some time!

What a beautiful ending! I laughed very hard at the names of the program, and what an a great ending!

You're reasoning is very logical! I think it went absolutely perfectly! So cute, too!
