    There's only one place where it's safe for Spock to let go...

    Summary

    During the kal-if-fee a zavik-tel, a proto-bond, formed between Spock and his captain. Or at least that was what the Vulcan had assumed it was. But Spock learns that sometimes dedication, no matter how laudable the ideal to which it is given, can lead to obsession and blindness to the most obvious truth. And in the end even logic must bend knee to facts.

    Interesting and non-saccharine exploration of Vulcan telepathic bonds

    Summary

    "'Spock,' Jim breathes out, completely overwhelmed by the gesture—not quite believing that Spock knows him so well, that's he's already started researching, that he trusts Jim with a member of his own endangered species."

    When Jim gets it in his head to adopt an eight year old Vulcan, Spock presents a logical solution to the issue of Jim's humanity: marriage to a Vulcan citizen.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don't usually enjoy stories with children in them. I don't think that people have to produce children in order for their lives or their marriages to have meaning. I usually find stories with kids rather saccharine.

    But THIS story is adorable! I guess if you make the kid a solemn little Vulcan boy, all my grumpiness flies out the window, and I coo just as much as other people. :-)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Nerdy, science-specialist Jim Kirk is intentionally out of character in the first part of this story, but he gradually grows into someone who resembles the character we recognize. Kirk's being the smart science geek does deprive Spock of his usual role, so this isn't a version of Kirk that I'd like to read often, but since I love science geeks, it's fun to see a Kirk version as a change of pace.
