I realize you wote all these stories out of order over a long period of time, but reading them all at once, I notice a few inconsistencies and contradictions. For example, in an earlier story we learn Chris Pike was married but she didn’t renew the marriage, but there is no mention of her here and in this story we find out there isn't even time or opportunity for it to have happened.
And yes, I think you're cruel to Pike ...and Eric and Natalie actually, but especially Pike. The woman you love marrying your brother, that's brutal, it's like losing both of them at the same time.

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... :)
