You do very well in these little ficlets to vividly set the scene for each timeline - right down to the finer details (like the state of one's teeth!).

Rick's heart seems a little heavier with each story.



Author's Response:

Yes, every time, he is affected, although he isn't initially admitting that. People love to ask which time period others would like to visit, but before around 1940 or so, it would be horrible if you needed healthcare. Penicillin is a very good thing.

Oh, so maybe he's just had a lesson in consequences!



Author's Response:

Big consequences here, but they are not quite big enough.

Ooh, some clever little bits of name-dropping there. And Rick is developing some swagger.



Author's Response:

Thanks! One thing about ENT was the temporal cold war and future guy. Why not make it future gal instead?

And the lesson is learned - he can't interfere. It almost harks back to Kirk and Edith Keeler; she had to die.



Author's Response:

Yep. I run the time travel part of my universe as there being acceptable levels of interference before it all goes belly up. Edith Keeler is another instance where interference will tea things too much.

Oh, a very clever little kind of epiphany at the end there. He finally finds some purpose and some resolve. A lovely way to wrap up the series!



Author's Response:

Oh, thank you for reading and for your kind reviews!

I agree with the others - Spock and Janeway together is an awesome combination! You captured them both nicely. I like that this is the beginning of a new adventure, but also a reminder of missions past.



Author's Response: Thanks Zilley! Glad you enjoyed it, and hope you'll like what I do with Sisko and Janeway going forward.

Oh, boy. Some interesting twists and turns ahead, I can tell!

*cue dramatic music* ... and another twist in the tale. I love the way each of these different scenes is linked by the structure of the opening sentence. Very clever.



Author's Response: Duh duh dum! So glad you noticed the opening sentence structure, didn't plan on it initially but after the second one I decided to go with it. Thanks for the comment!

There are so many elements in play in this fic - you do so much in under 500 words a chapter!

And just when I thought there could be no more twists! Absolutely fantastic.

Summary:

Even the logical and unemotional Mister Spock can still crack a joke once in a while.

I really like the atmosphere you created with this. Scotty's love of his homeland is obvious in TOS and I think you captured not only his fondness for Scotland, but you paint some quite evocative pictures of the place itself. I could almost hear the bagpipes! A really lovely Scotty character piece.



Author's Response: Thank you for reading, Zilley, and for the lovely review.

Date: 24 May 2015 Title: Chapter 1: First Time I Have Ever Asked

I've been on a bit of a Spock vs McCoy kick lately, in the sense that I want to see how their relationship works beyond the bluster. I think they actually had some of the most enlightening/insightful character moments on the series when they weren't plain sniping and point-scoring.

Sometimes it's nice to see them disuss their differing POVs calmly and without namecalling.

You have a nice handle on both characters here.

Oh, uninlightened Spock. He has to put himself - and his friends - through hell to find himself. He could be strangely naive at times.

Having said that, it' true he never wanted command, and with Kirk stuck on Earth, I don't think a future as the Enterprise's captain appealed to him at all. That, too, would have played a part in him choosing to leave.

Well done.

This was definitely the point in Spock's life where the lightbulb went on over his head and he finally figured his life out. Took him long enough!

I love how concise and to the point that second entry is. It's a life changing moment, but he's like, "So, yeah, I figured out my life."

He must feel so disjointed at this point, fresh from having his mind put back in his head! I kind of think of it like a room which has been emptied completely, which then has all the furniture and furnishings put back by someone who doesn't know what it looked like before. The room has all its contents, but you can't find anything because everything is out of order.

It's a very powerful scene in the movie because Kirk and the others have literally sacrificed everything on the tiny chance Spock could be saved. And no one, not even the Vulcans, I think, really knew if the transference would work.

I think you've captured the confusion of Spock's thoughts nicely.
