I could deal with all the over the top violence and such, though it seemed a little silly that Jim got into SO many fights over it. However, the inconsistencies bugged me- why was everyone so offended about him 'lying' when they were so flippant, or ignored others being flippant about the massacre in the first place? Generally I enjoyed the story until this last chapter when you gave us NO CLOSURE whatsoever!
You didn't include the frankly irresponsible instructors being reprimanded by Pike, or apologising to Jim, and I think at this point the only thing that could have quelled the ridiculous levels of animosity towards Jim at the end would have been for the Head of the Academy be given permission to announce to all faculty and students that Jim Kirk was indeed a survivor of Tarsus IV, to be treated with respect and dignity, and anyone who insinuated otherwise would be expelled/fired with no hope of appeal. And anyone (instructors included!) who had previously interacted with Jim on this subject was to write up a formal letter of apology, describing their appalling actions in full and why they were completely unacceptable, and those letters would be published for all to read. Anyone who refused to write them would be fired/expelled. And Jim was exempt from that class, and given time off and free (competent!) therapy sessions. I think something like that would have been the only way to recompense the atrocity you put poor Jim through! I definitely think that this fic is unfinished without some knowledge that those bastards were made to suffer and grovel for Jim's forgiveness.

Hi I just want to point out that in the sentence "Tarsus IV, was a colony that in 2246 was struck by feminine" you say feminine and I am fairly sure you mean famine. Feminine is when something is girly. Famine is extreme hunger/starvation

I just shared something recently that I have never told to a friend after worrying over it for months. I have no idea what I wanted to happen except that I hoped to not think about telling it anymore. With no gauge to let me know what to expect, i had no idea what would happen. His response was mild and open and appreciative and he said that he was glad I felt I could share it. Anyway, I think it is interesting timing to read your dedication just as this happened in my life.
I also appreciate your writing and character development. The actions all seem in character and within possibility. I am reading your other stories now. Thank you.

Bones, Pike, and maybe Uhora are the only smart ones. Everyone else should just shut the f- up and die in a hole, except for Sammi's brother. No one would want to know that there sibling died like that.
This story was fantastically well written. Thank you so much for dedicating it to who you dedicated it to. What about the people who still haven't confided in anyone though? What about those who gave up, and can't make friends, whose grades are slipping, and they beat themselves up emotionally about it everyday?
This story touched my heart.
It will never leave me.

Amazing, I was crying almost the full thing though because it hit home, I too had to face a challenge like that. So I thank you for your gifted writing abilities. Live long and prosper.

I havent read this in forever yet i thank you for introducing Tarsus IV to me...a lot of other fanfics followed

...No really, it's fine. It's not like I, you know, needed my heart or anything like that. Go ahead and just rip it out of my body. I'm just gonna lay here in a puddle of tears and feels and angst while you do that.

...I honestly have no idea how to respond to this. Physically? It's an amazing story! Very well written, emotions/personalities captured perfectly...but impact-wise? I honestly started crying because I couldn't stop thinking about all the people in Cambodia and other places in the world right this very second going through the exact same thing as Kirk with next to no chance for help. This is an amazing motivating story for helping those in situations that no one knows about, or that everyone knows about and turns a blind eye towards. Thank you so much

I like this so far, and except for a couple of grammar mistakes, really good job. The biggest one would be: "Tarsus IV, was a colony that in 2246 was struck by feminine." It should be famine. Sorry, to nit pick, but my editing background just kicked in.

Touching, sad and emotional. The class's reaction to Jim's work was heartbreaking becasue it is quite realistic. Thank you for writing this.

Just need to say that I'm shaking and sick to my stomach. Your a fantastic writer, I couldn't stop reading even though now I wish I had (because of the afformentioned shaking). I would say something like 'Great Job', but the contents of this fic don't really fit with that sentiment.

Sh-! I need to go drink a bottle of whiskey.
After reading this all in one go, it is an emotionally confronting story. I want to go get drunk so I can be numb to the feelings this story brings up.
It is a fantastic piece of writing, you definately have talent, but this is a story I can only read once.
Than-you for sharing this with us. It is definately well written, although I do personally feel that McCoy would have had no troubles sitting with Kirk at the end scene, you wrote it from a the perspective of a very human responce which actually fitted the story nicely.
I honestly dont know what else to say...still processing...

Great story line and you gave the information in a realistic timeline. Having Uhura and Gaila be so close to Bones and Kirk made it a bit different and interesting. Amazing Story! Thank you

This was absolutely fantastic. I'd love to see an epilogue in the future, something where the Enterprise crew has it confirmed that he really was on Tarsus, and people's (especially Uhura's) reaction. Awesome story.
