I think your Spock and Uhura are loads of fun! I don’t know what that reviewer is talking about

An excellent story, well told. Natalie feels like she belongs in this universe. She feels as canon as the canon characters do. :)

Oh yes, making Eric Chris’s younger brother was a stroke of genius, and especially in the context of Chris’s already-resentment because he had to delay entering Starfleet to take care of Eric. I’m still very much enjoying this whole interconnected universe of yours!

Nice job with the high-level engineering and security requirements for the talk. Great job weaving in the Vulcan family’s tragedy, and the cross-cultural struggle to relate. Wonderful discussion of linguistics and thought and their interrelationship. I really do enjoy the Pike/Jolsen storytelling. It’s fascinating and refreshing, especially as it’s a male-female relationship that is very interesting but isn’t about sex or romance. And lovely job bringing it all back around at the end to Uhura understanding Spock better, and learning to accept him as he is, rather than waiting for him to act more human before she can feel comfortable in the relationship. I like how she is more readily verbal than he is. It feels right, given their characters.

Beautiful discussion about faith and practice! I’m a big fan of the idea that Spock is half-Jewish, and you explore it so well here. Great moment with Nyota showing up after Spock had resigned himself to being without her, and how he was grateful for just the lesser blessing of her voice and her offer to come. Dayenu was the perfect word. I love how he found it not in Standard or Vulcan, but in Hebrew. It is yet another example of how deeply he loved his mother and how inadequate merely saying “I love you” would be to express what she meant to him.

I have things to do but get so engrossed with the story that I delay doing them. You are a very bad influence!
My stomach is rumbling. I will go eat dinner. I will go... Now! Lindsay, turn off the computer. :D

Ah! This is so beautiful. Dear thoughtful, Professor Artura... :)

A really interesting chapter given it deals so much with the difference between the said and unsaid. Definitely something to ponder on.

I really enjoy the details you bring to these background stories. It's the little pieces that enrich what is already a good story to make it superb.

The only thing that tripped me up these last few chapters was the lack of flashback. But then everything's caught up to eachother so... :)

And yet that choice will have both of them killed... if Nyota hadn't requested the Enterprise. It's JC all over again.

I guess fairly soon into it who Eric was to Chris. Quite telling was how he always refers to the man, quite carefully, as Eric. Nothing else. As if he first knew him as Eric but couldn't bear to think of the title attached to the name. And what titles would be painful to think of being married to the girl you love? Brother or Friend. And then, when he gave her his brother's number, it became obvious that it was the brother.

I /loved/ this chapter! Young Chekov is so fun :)

The ending scene of this chapter contrasts strongly, for good or for ill, with their inability to 'get' eachother in Subtext.
