|Reviews for Holography 4: Home is Where the Heart Is|

I realise that you are in the process of wrapping up Home is the Sailor, but may I make a plea for this to be completed next.
The story you have unfolded is compelling, which is why I have read it 3 times, even though it’s not complete. Amanda’s unbridled rage at T’Pring hits you right between the eyes.
I can’t imagine that T’Pring’s clan are going to get their claws back into Spock, since Spock is adamant that he has been divorced, but I would like to see how this plays out. Does Spock learn of his father succumbing to vrie, for instance?

More Please? I do hope you going to continue this story. It would make a nice lead in to Home is the Sailor.

I've loved this series so much! It has made me smile and it has made me cry. I especially like this story. Are you planning on continuing it sometime? I know you are probably working on other things, but if you get the time I would greatly appreciate the next chapter!
Once again, I'd just like to say how much I loved reading it!

I do wish those last three words would prove to be true...

Pat, I retread this story and I was surprised the whole thing wasn't posted. I have read it all at an earlier time. I hope at some time you post the rest.

I really like your characters and how you have made the Vulcan society different enough to know it's not just another human group with pointy ears but also that it is believable that a human could marry into it with some hope of adapting and holding her own. Some authors do make Spock either so much more human than he allowed himself to be at this time or they portray Vulcans as so far removed from human that I don't see how a human woman could emotionally survive. Thanks for your great stories and I hope you finish the few that you haven't and to keep writing new ones.

I am so looking forward to your continuation of this story.
You are an excellent writer, and I appreciate your skill and expertise.

Oh, no! It's not all up yet. I do so love this piece. Must wait patiently. Oh!

"I love you," she said.
This exchange is all kinds of wonderful:
'"I…know," he replied, after a pregnant pause.
Amanda shook her head, with a rueful look. "Spock, promise me one thing. Whomever you marry, just make sure you can say it to her."
"Say what, Mother?" Spock asked, with the barest hint of a smile tracing his lips, before he abruptly cut the connection.
"Brat," Amanda said fondly to his fading reflection. But then her own smile faded as she though of what she had to relate.'
I am very much looking forward to the next chapters. Such a treat to read Holography stories again.

I'm really glad that the author has decided to try to get the rest of these stories up on this site. They are the best Sarek/Amanda stories anywhere - and everything else she does is quite wonderful as well.

I'm enjoying this story immensely, but I do hope that you continue it as it does end kind of abruptly and it appears that you haven't updated it for a few years. Please continue as I thoroughly enjoy your stories. Thanks for sharing with all of us!

Please please update. Or did you sequel it?

Did I ever share my definition of love in a previous message or review? I can't remember, but given how often Amanda talks about love to Spock and Sarek (and didn't they claim love has no meaning because it means contradictory things), I wanted to share my thoughts.
Love is not holding on or letting go. Those are merely manifestations of love. Love is caring about someone and wanting good things for that person. And the more you love someone, the more you are willing to sacrifice of yourself to make good things happen for that person. Of course, you are still allowed to love yourself and weigh any sacrifice you make against any benefit to your loved one.
By the same token, hating someone is caring about someone and wanting bad things for them. And the more you hate, the more willing you are to sacrifice of yourself to make those bad things happen. But where love renews and heals you, hate does not. That is why it is more damaging to hate than to be hated. At least spiritually. So from this point of view, the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. There are many people who would rather be scorned than ignored, who would rather matter enough to be hated, than to not matter at all.
What do you think?
