I had to force my mouth closed while I laughed, so as not to wake the sleeping spouse who's had more than enough Vulcan chatter to last him a weekend...
I'd say this was delicious, but my cat's by my feet, so maybe I'd better not.
You kept me guessing, and I love that McCoy got in on it.
And the ending. *Big, illogical,loopy grin.*
I sort of have a Spock eats kittens story, but it goes in a disturbing direction.
This is rather delightful, other than the charred babies...
This is the first review I've posted here, and it's well-earned.
Thanks for the muffled laughter. Now just eat the kitten.

Just found this story....it's HILARIOUS!!! Fantastic writing, loved McCoy, the Harriman-bashing...and of course Spock's internal never-ending dialogue.....
I can't believe he really ATE the 'kitten'...that was so awsomely disgusting ;-) Purrrfect!

To just echo - bleedin' terrific! Inspired. Awesome. Terrific idea, terrifically executed. I really can't imagine that this didn't happen rather than thinking it is too ridiculous to happen.
Throw in the fact, that added to all of the hilarity of the situation and how you turned the submission rule in on itself,you also gave a lot of heart to this piece with Spock musing on the loss of Kirk, how the Ent-B was not the Enterprise, how it was in fact the ship on which Kirk died. When you can mix the tragedy of that with the comedy of the rule and Spock eating kittens in character you have just pure awesome rocking talent.

Oh, my goodness.
This is ... sorry, there is no other word ... INSPIRED. I love how you saw the rules as a challenge and just WENT FOR IT. And it worked!
You. Are. Awesome!!! I wish I had something more to say, but I can't stop laughing at this. Well played, Firefly. Well played.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really wasn't sure what the reaction to this would be... but I'm glad it was funny.

I never imagined actually having someone take the rules as a challenge. o.O And then, you did. And now, I think I may want to ask permission to link this to the rules as an example of, if you have to have Spock eating kittens, it be in character.
Totally awesome story; I saw the summary, cracked up, and then I read the story and loved every word!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really glad you enjoyed it, and you have my permission to link this story anywhere you like. n___n
