Aw. I like Chekov. He always seemed like such a sweet, endearing guy, if you could get past the pro-Russia bluster (which, as you so clearly highlight here, was just homesickness, at least in my opinion). I liked this scene a lot.

That a nice first meeting between Chekov and Chapel, I enjoyed their interaction and this has being a fun series of ficlets you've done a great job of bring all the characters to life and making their introduction to Chapel unique. Well Done.
Congratulations on completing your TToT 2014 entry.

Oooh, neat nods to canon and Chekov's latter appearance. And nice too that you give him that ambition as part of his personality. I liked seeing these two meeting. Two smaller inconsequential characters in some ways considered by some, yet they both hold part of the charm and magic of Star Trek and of course add to the depth of the characters of the crew of Enterprise. Really enjoyed these ficlets Cuppy. Really well done.

I've really enjoyed the way you've fleshed out the "behind the scenes" of Chapel's assignment to the Enterprise. This series has been a great read, and now that we're down to the last day I'm both eager to read the next part, but kind of sad that it will be over.
Thank you so much. If you go on to read any of my other works, you'll see that fleshing out the 'behind the scenes' stuff, weaving storylines so that all of the episodes interconnect, is what I like to do best. :D

What a beautifully charming friendship with great depictions of their friendship beginning. I liked very much the feel of this peice. The vibe it gives about their instinctive friendship, which is so true to life in so many ways, you just with a person and know they are going to be your friend. I loved this. You write such charming and beguiling snippets Cuppy. You're a Chapel yourself. With you, I as a reader feel safe and at home, I know I'm going to be treated to a stellar piece of writing.

Ah, its nice to see a picture painted about true friends. I like that you had Uhura and Chapel become best friends. It's not often we get to see things like this in the trekverse.
Thanks for sharing.
Day 7 can't come fast enough.

Nicely done. The dialogue in all these pieces has been top notch and I especially liked it here. Chapel once again comes across as a truly great character - friendly, but firm, just what you want in a nurse - nice to see her interactions with Sulu here. Great job once again!

This piece lends a subtlety to Chapel that I hadn't really considered before, but it makes so much sense that she would handle McCoy's temper tantrums as deftly as she handles a dislocated shoulder, and it points to the balance they provide to one another. Enjoying these very much.

Another neat entry to the unfolding tale of Chapel making good first impressions. And here we see her real magic as the nurse to McCoy, she finds the path that meets medicince and allows for not so many ranting McCoy moments. She's going to play the part of diplomat and the part of buffer between crew and McCoy for the duration and it will win her fans on board and it will ensure the health of the ship. More than that, it shows her ability as a peace maker that surely also makes her part fascinating to Spock and the fact her people skills are somewhat innate and low key.

I'm not gonna lie.. I would love to see Scotty turn to McCoy one day and tell him to "sit the hell down and chill the hell out".. haha! Great entry LBD. You write these characters very well. It makes me want to give TOS another chance.

Christine is already well on her way to becoming not only valued but downright beloved. I like how she got a promise out of them in exchange for a pretty minor fib. Better to have an imperfect record and make them both be more careful, than to have a perfect written record, more future injuries and a lousy nurse-patient relationship with both of them (and maybe even with more people, as she has no idea who they'll talk to later about her).
That was EXACTLY what I had in my head as I wrote this. She's already seen McCoy's gruff side, and figured she could use honey as opposed to vinegar to get them to tone down their sparring sessions a bit.
