    Wonderful AOS Spock/Uhura story, slow building and thus more believable than some. Well written and uses language details nicely.

    [Note to self: This is the one where Spock tells Uhura that a Vulcan children's game involves competing to solve algebraic equations the fastest ... and he's joking.]

    AOS Spock outmaneuvers a Q who wants him to destroy the AOS timeline. Fun story even though I vastly prefer TOS.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Exquisitely well-done story of a Vulcan woman who uses prejudice against humans (and Spock) to disguise the loneliness in her heart. She eventually reaches a crisis, and Spock reaches out to her and helps her find another way.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There's a cave and an injury and a transporter malfunction, and Spock's taking care of Kirk. It would seem like one more story of a type we've seen a LOT of already, but it's elevated by two things:
    1) The quality of the prose
    2) This line: "You offer me all that you are," Spock trailed his fingers down the curve of Kirk's cheek before breaking contact completely, "and I accept. If you require a similar declaration in return, I can only say that what you offer to me freely now, I gave to you without hesitation or expectation long ago."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Although I've enjoyed a heck of a lot of K/S stories, I also enjoy THIS story, which points out how ridiculous it is that K/S is seen as inevitable, but the destruction of Vulcan is shrugged off as irrelevant.
