Just wanted to say I've been tearing through this series and I am completely hooked - I love Kirk moving through the ranks way better than instant promotion, and I love the feel of their relationship as well. Hoping you'll write further into this series, but I love everything so far!

You are such a good writer. I'm running off to read the sequel.

omg hanging on the edge of my seat now...I need a sequel. I love how Jim is so possessive, that strikes me as a trait he would have. I would like to see a little more emotional growth in the relationship, they really don't seem to have good communication, but I have total faith that you will show that in you continuation of this (excellent) series. I have really enjoyed all of them.

OH, SHIT! And here I was stupidly thinking that we were saved from the whole 'destruction-of-Vulcan' thing just because this story is AU... *facepalm*
Oh man... How is Spock going to survive this with Jim being on another ship? How will his ship not be destroyed immediately on arrival? HOW WILL THEY DEFEAT NERO IF THEY'RE SEPARATED?
So many questions! Can't wait to see how this all plays out *anxiously starts biting fingernails*

NoYou can't stop there! This was fun to read. They are handling their separation the best way possible so I'm happy for that. Please update soon. I'd like to know what's going to happen! Thank you so much : )
| bakedham chapter 1 . 7/23/2011
Awww, yeah. Let's get the party started. :D I'm excited for the next installment!
I could totally connect with this predicament-missing someone so much that you just want to find someway to teleport over there. **sigh** You put it into words concisely! :) I like.

Ooh! Oooh! YES! Okay, this story was delicious. Is there going to be more? No no no, I won't hate you for a cliffhanger. I would hate you for writing a cliffhanger and never returning to tie up loose ends. But back to the story. I loved how Spock has somehow subtly changed because of Jim, and is struggling to adapt to life without him. I also thought calls every other night were awesome. Your figures of speech in Jim's lines, by the way, rule. I can *hear* him saying them. I was impressed that Pike was accepting of Jim and Spock's relationship and understands that as much as he can without jeopardizing the ship, Jim is focused on Spock. I will be forever curious as to what caused Jim's black eye, though. So it goes along, and then - the new orders. Spectacular. I will be expecting a follow up on this. In all your K/S stories, something happens to pull them apart. Please let this have a happy ending! Well, as happy as it can be with this crisis that's going to happen with Vulcan...

...Oh no. You DIDN'T. I can't believe you! (Both for being horribly, horribly mean to the characters AND for working in that plot point in an amazing way.) Totally didn't see that coming, and as sad as I am that it will probably screw with their shore leave and will certainly screw with their emotional health, I'm really really looking forward to seeing how it plays out in their current conditions. That said, the fic was great (and omg, Sulu and Kirk bickering was a total win), and I love that you conveyed how bummed they are about being separated without making it a depressing fic. (Yay talent!) So yeah, as always, I loved this and I'm hardcore looking forward to reading the next installment. :)
