This is so amazing! Thanks for sharing.

Wow. Really shows some insight into Kirk's character. At first I didn't understand the final few paragraphs, but rereading them, I realized ... if Kirk hadn't been on Tarsus, he wouldn't have been Kirk. That's why.
Kinda sad, when you think about it. Really sad.

Oh my goodness... This story is just... Wow. Your delivery, the speech patterns, the lines...! This story is amazing. Fantastic job.

Your summmary of your fanfic made no sense to me.

I've always considered Tarsus a breaking and creating point in Kirk's life, where he learned who he is and who he would be. That all the rest of it is just him learning how to get there, but that this one moment in time is eternal, and his crucible.

Because Tarsus, no matter the universe, weather he was there or not, makes, will make, and has made James Tiberius Kirk who he is.

Well done, and most likely true.
(there was only one fic I've read, where Uhura went instead, but the Kirk in that fic was odd.)

Great story and excellent point about how Tarsus changed Kirk. That's why I think Nu! Trek Kirk has been on Tarsus. That place and situation would have changed anybody drastically, and you can't make me believe that a dead-beat stepfather (or uncle) and a depressed absent mother can lead to the Kirk we saw in ST2009. Something else had to happen, I like to think that Kirk went through trial by fire and the person we see in ST 2009 is still smoldering from the aftermath.

Dear Lord. This was amazing and well-written, many kudos. I agree with your assessment entirely.
All the best,
| Soului chapter 1 . 2/24/2014
I love this. I mean, really, really love this. I don't know if it's Tarsus itself, but I do agree that Jim always has to go through some kind of serious crap during his childhood to make him the man who captains Enterprise. Thanks for this.

Very good! Loved the ending.
| Kilana89 chapter 1 . 12/17/2013
It is for those last 3 statements that I believe tarsus should be brought up in nuTrek. Also cool plot device with the dimention jumping Kirk. I think It would be cool if you wrote a little about some of his adventures. :)

Wow! Thought-provoking, especially for a fan of TOS. Thanks for posting.
