"Remind me why I want to become a captain again?"
"Because it is your destiny," Spock said softly. "Your first, best destiny."
Kirk chuckled softly. "For being all logical and crap, you Vulcans sure like to trot out destiny when it suits you."
"There is no logic in denying the truth."
"Touché," Kirk said, and yawned widely. "Still, if that's my destiny, what's yours?"
"To be with you."
Okay, so remember my comment on the story in this verse before this one? That this relationship between Kirk and Spock is emotionally abusive (to Spock, at least)? Well, I know that this is supposed to be sweet - that Spock will do anything for love - but honestly, this is pretty OOC for Spock, and as such is less sweet and more wrong, IN MY OPINION. I MEAN NO DISRESPECT TO THE AUTHOR OR ANY WHO BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A GOOD REPRESENTATION OF THIS PAIRING. Anyway, for Spock to essentially say that only Kirk's career matters, and that his doesn't.. it really just doesn't seem right. This seems pretty one-sided, and I just don't believe that good, healthy relationships should be. EVERYONE IS FREE TO DISAGREE WITH ME IF THEY BELIEVE DIFFERENTLY. I AM SORRY THAT I DID NOT STATE THIS IN MY EARLIER COMMENT.

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*

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.
