I STILL think the intense nuance of horror you put into this story is insane (and admirable) for you... maybe you can watch The Ring with me one day after all! (;
In 2385, as the universe around them is in chaos, two people separated by years and species find themselves together. They are connected through one event that has changed both their lives ... an event that is in need of closure.
Set in the Star Trek Chronicles universe, during Book III.
Wow... wow... the fact that she did this and it ended up being more for his benefit than her own, yet they were both healed by it? really nice!
It's so hard for me to wrap my head around anything other than feelings of negativity when it comes to the whole Dominion conflict, but this made me stop and think about what it must have been like on the other side. So in essence, this really fell in line with the challenge of "forgiveness" on a personal level. Good stuff.
Oh yeah. We definitely need to find a new word for "gasped." (; Still love how you've captured both of their points of view-- how he's very obviously moved past it, yet how the pain is fresh for her because she's only just discovering it, and what they have to do together to heal and move forward. *nod* good job, you. (=
Continuing the saga that began with the popular crossover novel between Star Trek: Gibralar and Star Trek: Full Speed Ahead, The Chains of Error, various Farragut crew are spread out in preparation for Task Force Vanguard!
Stardate 54790.64: Immediately following the events of To Triumph and Not to Mourn, Rear Admiral Krystine Leone struggles to get through her grief after the death of her closest friend and confidant, Commander Ariel Elannis, with the help of her former crew and her son, Dominic. But the work of Starfleet doesn't stop for grief. In the post-Dominion War Federation, several member worlds taking on the burden of rebuilding from their massive losses are also fending off the sharp increase of piracy as Starfleet finds it is spread far too thin to keep up its usual pre-war patrols. Among those worlds is Betazed, whose representatives have become vocal and threatening in conference. Starfleet and the Ministry of Defense send Admiral Leone aboard Indefatigable to directly address the defense of Betazed and the surrounding sectors of Federation space. Meanwhile, Dominic deals with the fallout of his actions during his time at Starfleet Academy with the prospect of joining Task Force Vanguard looming over him, removing him from the Alpha Quadrant for the next five years of his career!
After forgetting my penname, resetting my password, searching for the story url to read it in Safari instead of my gmail app from which my husband sent me the link, I am FINALLY getting around to reviewing this story! And while I am as disconnected to StarTrek as one can be when married to a man who writes fanfic about it, I am interested to see what happens next. Cheers to starting a new adventure!
Oh holy cheese! I was all set to offer my review from my feelings on Leone's mom (... Um... Um... Yeahhhh...) and how glad I am that Charity was staying with her (Charity seems like good people), then you DROP this bomb on us at the end of the chapter??? And by a Vulcan, too, so it's all the more shocking for its starkness??? Oy! I'm floored! *hustles over to Chapter 2*
Hmm... Seems like if she can't get her head in the right place, Leone is going to have a heck of a time getting this mission pulled off. She's facing emotional turmoil from within and a sense of hesitation from her "new" crew members. It's going to be interesting to see where all this ends up!
Also, I'm super jealous that Abbie could power through dinner like that. My first pregnancy was wretched (I had HG--Hyperemesis Gravidarum--lost 13 lbs); with my second, my son rode so high up I'd be ravenously hungry only to get full after four bites lol.
Ha! I like Govan. Sounds like Dominic's got a real headache on his hands... This part, though:
"My grandmother couldn't stay retired. I should tell her she's a quitter," Dominic groused.
Just about had me in stitches lol, imagining the dent in the floor from where his grandmother's jaw hit it if he said that to her!
