Great story, I'm sorry I didn't review each chapter this time, but am basically lying in bed unable to sleep and just obsessed with your stories as I wait for a Friends with benefits update (this last McCoy chappie didn't exactly make the longing any smaller, let me tell ya) .
As always, love the story and the whole concept and the subtle changes you made throughout it all. Also, Spock Prime is amazing in this story (as he always is) and I can't wait to read on.
I noticed you had a sequel up already, but I saw a few and now am confused as to which comes first. I mean, I don't know what is number two or three. Aw well, I'l lfigure it out :D
Thanks for being an awesome writer and ,again, eager for more of your writing!

Well Jimmy and Bones have a grand friendship! And an accidental engagement to Spock through the Thy'la bond with Spock Prime...COOL! Boy is Nyota going to be pissed unless they are parting as friends later on!

I read this and its sequel before abandoning the series when I realised that you seem to have abandoned it as well. I liked this part best. The characterisation is great and I absolutely adored Bones and old Spock.

I like this. Same chapter as in Friends With Benefits (though I know this one was written first), but the variables that seem to change the outcome of the universe are Jim and Bones' decision to either go or not go on the shuttle. I like it, after all, there's no Jim without a Bones in my opinion.

Wow. So I adore this rewrite. I love how you mixed the movie events with fem-Jim's voice and narration. I just love how she handles everything and thinks, you have such a great grasp on her character! One of my favourite conversations was with Winona-because it was so painful, honest and Jim handled it like I thought she would, as a mature woman who is hurting inside but capable of standing on her own two feet. I also appreciate the advice Winona had to give about being a woman in a position of power. You have to work harder than the men do and still, you'll have people questioning your authority but you hold strong. This perspective just adds so much depth to Jim and I love her even more.
I enjoyed reading Jim meeting Prime Spock (it really isn't fair that in every other universe-that Prime Spock knows of-she's got a dick.) Her reactions were great and later, when she was having tea with him and Bones, and Bones being all protective just let me melt inside at the wonderful dialogue and feelings underneath sdlfkjsdgoj.
BONES. Ok? I love Bones and Jim's relationship in any universe. I just like to think that Bones would be very protective of Jim (no matter how grouchy he is) as she's reckless, enduring, a wonderful genius and has a shitload of allergies. I love how you portray their relationship here... an extremely intimate friendship. I feel like calling it a "friendship" doesn't even do them justice. They're like romantic friends. I liked how you called them twins. And they own each other. It makes me look forward to seeing how their friendship works when Jim and Spock begin to get closer. It's so cute that Bones teases Jim for her 'crush'. I just sdfljksdfojg. Hoping for more protective Bones in the future. I live for Jim and Bones interaction.
This is a great intro but I'm more excited for your original adventures that you have planned and how you're going to expand on character roles, how Spock will come to respect Jim, become friends with her... I wonder how Jim's relationship with Sarek will turn out now? Anyways, when I'm done with my exams I will be back to read more of your amazing works!

Naaaw, they got a crazy thing, Bones and Jim. But it's sweet.
And it's nice to know that AT LEAST, Jim's mom told her other children about Jenma, and that they wrote letters to her...I REALLY hope they get to meet. Love to see it :D
