This was a fun read! THE LAB COATS. OMG. I love the husband/wife team, and that the dentist handled Scotty's freakout so well. I know the background on this because of the TToT ficlets, I think.
I also LOLed at the psych eval being multiple choice, and his relief and then also being disturbed by that. A solidly understandable reaction.
And his having his own place, even if for a night ... that got to me. He's been through a lot, and this moment of pure freedom was hard earned.
Author's Response: That dentist deserves a medal. And yes, I think you've got at least some understanding of it. Thanks so much.

Wow, an introvert's nightmare! Poor Scotty! I loved the line about the psychological testing--"Scott wasn't sure if he was relieved by the fact that he wouldn't have to go through any mindgames a shrink would put him through, or if he was deeply disturbed that this was all the psychological screening that would be required to get into Starfleet." This was both fun and poignant, and a beautiful look into Scotty's character. I like how these short stories are building on each other. Well done.
Author's Response: Basic was a big deal for him. It was where he picked up his nickname, from one of his squad-mates, and it was where he first started reaching for his own goals, instead of trying to dodge disapproval 24/7. Thank you very much!

Well what an ending - Scotty having his own little space to call his own. :D That did make me smile. It's almost a win moment after his traumatic day. Certainly, a big moment and one that snuck up what with the processing, the tests, the doctors and the dentist! Yipes. So with Scotty here on the whole evil dentist thing! Nightmare. No wonder Scotty is going to revel in the little private space. Alas tomorrow brings the barracks and lack of privacy and ownership again. Aw.
Author's Response: I figured that it would probably be quite a hair-raising experience for him. And that if it weren't so important to him to go forward, he would probably bolt the other way. XD But it was a decent ending; I owed him that much! Thank you for reviewing it!
