Reviews for Silence
Carling chapter 1 . 1/19/2016
It's interesting, but my husband suddenly knew when his aunt died. He just looked up and told me she was gone even though we hadn't heard that she has been sick. He knew also when one of our pets died while we were traveling. My mother always knows somehow when I'm hurt or in danger. I always get a phone call from her after a close call with disaster. She now even seems similarly bonded to my husband. So I think humans can telepathically bond, but of course there's no scientific evidence to support that.

Anyway, I could imagine how a telepathic species would suffer mass severing of bonds, and thanks to your writing I can almost feel it.

Someone's going to think I'm nuts, just bursting out in tears in the middle of the night. Oh well, it's worth it. Oh, and have I told you that you are my favorite author? I LOVE your writing. It is phenomenal and breathtaking. 3

Loved how this was written, particularly the detachment in tone. It was well written in how it emulated Spock's mentality and his psyche.

Maybe the crashing breakers of a winter sea wasn't Kirk's dream, but the accumulation of all of the tears of a Vulcan's loss - the grief and desolation so massive that it must appear as an ocean.

Awe so sad! and I meant to review more on the other one but spaced out and hit send, then was all noooo I wasn't done (but stupid ff doesn't let you reply twice). But both sad, really hope amanda is ok, doubting it but Spock needs her. I was also really hoping for them to bond at end (to help Spock) but nook, I guess ill have to wait :-)
ShamelessSpocker chapter 1 . 8/23/2011
Damn, Matt. I literally cried at this. I actually sobbed. I couldn't stand the idea of Spock in *that much* pain and I could only imagine the horror, the sheer *terror* that Jim had trying to save him. You wrote something that has shaken my core and I honestly don't think I'll ever consider the events of the 11th movie the same ever again. This was what really would have happened. Jeez. Jim's care and love was so sweet, he was so brave for Spock, and he loved him with everything he had. When they fought at the end my breath caught and I desperately wanted them to not fall apart right then. What Jim says at the end is so true; at least Spock is responding, instead of shutting down. How he responds doesn't really matter, as much as the fact that he does it. I think Jim will be able to stay by his side until Spock can begin to process what just happened. Your writing, as always, moves me a million miles and I thank you so much. You rule.

Sometimes I have no words and all I can do to show my appreciation is to Add Story to Favorites. I'd add this one 100 times, if I could.
bakedham chapter 1 . 8/23/2011
Whoa. You must be a pro in Vulcan trauma-the descriptions are so exact! I love your writing style-it makes me actually almost feel what the characters are feeling, and that's amazing. Thanks for the great read; I'll be waiting for the next one!

Love this so much! :)

Wow, poor Spock. Such magnitude of a loss is unimaginable. He needs Jim to bond with him - Well I think that any way. If they can fix Spock, then the others might have a chance.
