I must admit I was curious as to where or when they would bond. The botanical gardens, where they first re-introduced to each other is just perfect! I really wonder what Sarek thought at the image of Drew embracing Amanda! And Amanda took her first Vulcan kiss in public LOL!
I loved the confrontation between T'Pau and Sarek. When she turned to face him, I thought that she would run over him! Very powerful scene which you described most vividly.
So now... the masks are off, and she knows... a little. Vulcan has many secrets but I like the way you choose to close this story. With an innocent laugh. Beautiful story. I like it exactly because it is not a fairytale. Although I shall disagree with the sex scene - THAT was too GOOD to be true! ;-)
And good luck with your next story, ST or not!

What do you mean The End?
Are you not going to continue this story?
At least until Spock is born?
I'm bored - what am I going to read now?

Great story looking forward to the sequel up to the birth of Spock. Does his birth make T'Pau accept Amanda? Does this AU exclude the ST Enterprise when a Vulcan/Human baby was created to prove it is possible for them to produce offspring.

While Amanda's answer is known, I find this chapter quite introductory to Amanda's future - T'Nerual presented the facts plain and simple and then left. Amanda had to make a choice alone.
I believe although she has not yet realise it, her future will be a lot like this. No patting in the back, no friendly affections. Just the facts... Yet she took that decision, brave as she is. I doubt a less brave person would survive in such conditions, for example... having T'Pau as mother-in-law (OMG! HEEELP).
As for the ring (ogling eyes) I'll repeat what I've already said. What a rock! Seriously, I believe the stone is the most beautiful red I've ever seen.

See Link below for Harry Winston ring!
You should just hotbutton your footnoted comment.
(It is a nice ring.)
Wouldn't Amanda have an opinion about HOW Sarek presented the ring?
I am glad that you are writing/posting so frequently to this story. It is very engaging!

Holy crap! That is some ring!

Nice one! No wonder she said yes, after he risked his life to save hers like that. :)

Awww! Sarek is Amanda's hero. Very nice. :) I'm not sure how popular he'll be when people finally not what caused the tipping point. Exciting chapter.

I have always realize when an author can place a picture inside my head, I am reading a hundred miles an hour i am on a trill ride. I had just done that! Thanks, as I slowed toward the end I felt wrapped in sweetness.
Thsnk you for keeping up the good work.

So now the truth is finally revealed! It took the world economy to become almost ruined, several explosions and civil unrest for Amanda to accepted Sarek's proposal!
Seriously now, the whole scene was scary - very scary. But it provided Sarek with the opportunity to prove the truth of his words and what Amanda needed. Totally devotion until the end. His willing sacrifice paid off. The other side of the whole scene are Amanda's bruises that were caused by none other than him... What a dilemma she will soon face...
I also liked Sarek's line "Your touch is acceptable, just do not...squeeze." It provided a relief in a chapter that is a little more familiar than I would have prefered it to be.

:) Great chapter. You're doing an excellent job of showing the passage of time in the relationship. It's very sweet and romantic after the super hot sex that started things off. It's nice to see the relationship building on friendship, companionship, and time devoted to each other.
