    Summary

    While on medical leave after his miraculous recovery, Jim is plagued with dreams -- dreams of another James T. Kirk, the one from the same alternate reality that the other Spock hails from. At first, Jim's dreams are dismissed as a psychological symptom of his latest trauma, but when he starts talking about a place called the Nexus, the answer no longer seems so cut-and-dried. But disturbing dreams aren't the only thing Jim's struggling with -- there's Starfleet's concern over his mental stability, the repairs of his beloved ship and the little matter of the fact that his First Officer seems to be intent on ignoring him.

    I subscribed to this, so I must have liked it, but so much time has passed between the initial posting and the final chapter that I no longer remember anything about it. I'm bookmarking it to re-read someday when I'm in the mood for that.

    Some great insights into the characters in this one; I love the line "There’s only one person equipped with some kind of an internal compass with ‘Kirk’ spelled where the North should be."

    Just because Zach had a thing for a fictional character didn't mean he expected Chris to notice.

    Amusing little story where Zachary Quinto has a crush on Kirk, so Chris Pine obliges him.

    Gorgeous, perfectly written tale of how much a small amount of help can do.

    An unusual story that puts Spock Prime back where he belongs ... and allows his romance with Kirk to begin several years earlier and without the detour into Gol. Interesting, thoughtful, and well written.
