Summary:

Sometime in the far future ...

 

Henry Harrison Jr. has had one pressing question his entire life: who is his father? It had haunted him for as long as he'd been alive. His mother had always told him that he was a product of a sperm donation, that he had been planned ... but the facts never lined up. Investigating his origins, he finally discovers the truth and realizes that you can’t outrun legacy.

 

And this legacy may very well be the one that ends his life … or saves it.

Wow, this is a really intense beginning - there's emotional impact right from the start. So many questions... a really, really awesome first chapter!

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 2: Darkness

I agree with the other reviewers: set phasers to creeeepy. There's some very effective use of short sentences throughout this which adds to the edginess of it all.

Well, that raised more questions than it answered...

This is so twisted, my brain is trying to unravel itself! Still, the "I'm your father', is possibly a better reveal than Darth Vader!

All I can think is that they must have one awfully messed up family tree.

Now, there's the act of a desperate man. And a pretty-much-literate cliff hanger.

Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 7: End

Excuse me while I retrieve the pieces of my mind from the floor. Twisted, depraved? Yes. But, well executed. Better than a ride at a theme park. Bravo.

I love that you can read so much into the characters with so few words - Spock's nervousness, Scotty's love of machinery, the way these characters work together. It definitely has a different flavour from Kirk's Enterprise. It really is a shame we didn't get to see more Pike episodes.

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2

Ohhh. I really hope Pike has at least the beginnings of a decent plan. That last line is priceless (well, perhaps it's fifteen platinum, but you know what I mean).

Love the descriptions of their surroundings - this is a really lovely opener. Gives you the warm and fuzzies.

Wow, I really loved the detail about Beethoven's 8th sonata. Another really sweet, touching scene.

Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 3: The Bet

Haha! This is humour perfectly played. Spot on characterisations too.

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 4: The Groom Awaits His Bride

Wow, you've really made the most of the small word allowance. So much description that I feel like I'm in the room!

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 5: They Do

Yay! I have to admit that I expected something to spoil the occasion (as usually happens with fictional weddings). *dances happily*

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 6: Four Years Later

This fic is killing me with cuteness! And I'm glad you added a bit of science in there; Star Trek is often a little neglectful in dealing with the logistics of these kinds of biological situations...

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 7: There But By the Grace ...

As much as I loved the happiness in this fic, I think it needed the balance of the darkness in this final chapter - so beautifully linked to the Prime 'verse. Lovely fic!



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading, even though you were at a tremendous disadvantage not knowing these characters in their prime universe form. Most of my stuff is the opposite of this ... angsty and tragic, although there is humor and love laced in. This is the first time I've ever written anything as unabashedly sweet, and it was a favor of sorts to my regular readers, who probably have tragedy fatigue after six years of reading the prime universe storyline!  Anyway, thanks so much for the comments. I hope you'll check out some of my other work to see that I'm not always so sugary sweet.  ;-)

I like the mystery of this. You are unraveling the clues by degrees - very cleverly done in just a little ficlet. A very bold and exciting opening!

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 19 May 2015 Title: Chapter 2: Ficlet 2: Investigations

This is a really awesome Klingon scene. The deviousness, the plotting, the what's-in-it-for-me thinking... pure Klingon. But they're renegades - and that makes them even more interesting!

Reviewer: Zilley Signed
Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 3: Ficlet 3: Interruptions

Clearly, these characters are familiar to the other readers, but they are new to me and they already sound interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing where this is going...

I feel like I might have missed some of the character nuances as they are new to me, but thanks for the ride! You've set it up well for future adventures.

Date: 25 May 2015 Title: Chapter 1: Lucretia Crossman (November 13, 1699)

A time-travelling Casanova? Intriguing! I get the sense from these few words that he is weary and somewhat despondent. His boss's suggestion might seem a superficial fix, but perhaps he will gain more from his experiences...?



Author's Response:

Carmen needs him. For this part of the timeline, he is her sole full-time time traveler. But at least it's just for observations. Plus he is a lonely single guy anyway. Thank you for reading!

Foiled again! And I get that Bond vibe too. Very cool.
