Shan Jeniah Burton lives a passionately playful life filled with lovely chaos, intertwined with her chef husband,  two endlessly fascinating children who keep outgrowing their clothes, and a rotating cast of furry companions.  She's traveled the country, and counted among her backyards the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and the Everglades, only to settle on the same sleepy country road in upstate New York where she grew up.  She is particularly fond of words and dreams, imagery and photography, nature, history, music, and fictional people with green blood and pointed ears.

I love my TnT, and you did a nice job with them. I have this feeling T'Pol's more aware of what she's doing to him than she's willing to admit, and that considerably less will happen down there than she might let him believe...

And Trip really ought to stop pretending this stuff doesn't bother him and tell her EXACTLY how humans handle these things...

But, if he did, it would be too easy...

Diplomacy by Firefly    Rated: K+    Liked  Reviews (8
Summary: “…if we see Spock eating kittens, it had better...make sense in context.” – Submission Guidelines

Several years after Kirk's incident on the Enterprise-B, on his first official diplomatic mission, Ambassador Spock faces a challenge the likes of which he has never imagined. Rated for kitten-eating.

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.

The Reptile Speaks by jespah    Rated: K    Liked  Reviews (6
Summary:

What happens when you like someone who's different?

I mean, really different.

I kind of walked into this one, by suggesting that interspecies romance might start with a shy Gorn reciting original poetry to a lovely, blushing Cardassian. So here goes!

I like Joss. And not just because, perhaps coincidentally, that happens to be my 13 year old son's name (he goes by it, or Miah, which he chose himself when he was two).

Cyril's story is gripping and profound, and I loved the connection that developed so quickly about those two...

And I'm still smiling about those antennae enhancements!

Author's Response:

Oh, thank you! You're very kind.

Joss is (and his siblings, too) kind of an everychild. In so much of Trek, childhood is either one long miserable slog (nuKirk) or you're a genius (Wesley Crusher), it seems.

Joss, Marie Patrice, Tommy, Neil, and Declan live off the Earth and fly in rockets at times, etc., but they also go to Prom, engage in sibling rivalry, and need help finding their way. Kinda like kids really do. :)

Cyril is someone who in the MU is a torturer, but here he's an older guy and I didn't just want him to be Pamela's uncle or Cindy's grandfather. He's a person and he has a backstory like we all do.

Miah? How neat!

Already suspecting that Leonard's marriage won't fare any better in this reality. Love the Spock/Leila arc, though, and I'm getting a little nervous about Sarek...

Joanna's not the only one who needs a hug, I think...*sniff.*

And Sarek has some nerve, after divorcing his son, to think he can just step in...how very Vulcan of him - and not in a good way.

Author's Response:

Yes, someone else surely benefitted from Joanna's hug. Between Leila and Sarek, Spock did not have a good week.

I love the idea of the two brothers keeping it on the QT so that even the Captain doesn't know!

Author's Response:

Well, Leonard was making a (private) little joke there. And the two brothers keeping their relationship secret is an even better joke on Kirk. :)

I'm all teary-eyed. That was certainly an emotional tumult. Having lost a fiance and a newborn son, I felt that maybe a little too much.

Author's Response:

Wow, I can see how that hit a little too close to home for you. :(    The loss of the baby also reflected a difficult happening in my own life last summer. Thanks for the heartfelt comments, shanjeniah.
