| RemusJ chapter 6 . 2/27
This story was very plausible to me. A lot of fanfic authors seem to want to portray Amanda as overly emotional because she's human but that never made much sense to me. Yes, she was emotional during JTB but for good reason. I know a lot of humans, and most are not overly emotional. It also doesn't make sense for a character living on Vulcan, married to a Vulcan, to be that way. Human, yes, but not emotional to the point of immaturity.
I think you did a great job portraying her as intelligent, wise, and logical, the characteristics that attracted Sarek to her in the first place. I also thought the dialogue between the two of them was great. You didn't portray Sarek as a total jerk as many authors do. He made mistakes but he was willing to admit it and to grow as a person as a result.
I loved the scene with Amanda teasing him while reading her magazine. Too funny. And I think we all know someone like Dana ;-)
I'm not into the Mirror Universe things so I hope to see more S/A stories from you in this universe :-)

I have just finished your fic and i really love it. Sarek and Amanda are so perfect together.
I'm a little sad because Sarek had neglected Amanda during years even if he redeem himself. I love her so much. Thank you ;)

Oh yes. I know how emotional scenes can really be exhausting to write. Being in these characters' heads. And yet, this is so palpable. You can tell how dismayed Sarek is, how weary Amanda is, but there's this nagging sense that Amanda still loves Sarek dearly despite everything and she just needs...just needs an apology, an acknowledgement of everything she's sacrificed. I so want them to fix things, to be happy again. Great chapter.

Wow, you express her feelings very well, that's really an adorable piece of writing! The behavior of Amanda and Sarek is so believeable and they become so alive as characters...
I also like how you include Sybok without loosing the focus of the Spock/Amanda issue.

This was absolutely masterful! Really a lot of depth you portray in their relationship, and I just love the way she tortures him, lol :)

Pahaha! I love this chapter so much. xD Much as moody Sarek is nice, I can definitely say I prefer fluffy, embarrased Sarek more. ;) poor man, he should KNOW what Amanda's up to after almost 20 years, but no. it would be illogical and far too silly for his wife. :D
