Ah what a beautiful story. It really demonstrates the subtly of Amanda's long relationship with Vulcan Culture and the sensitivity of Pon Farr. Vulcan characterization is very difficult to write realistically and you do so masterfully.


You made me cry! In a good way

Having Saavik needing to take time to realize what Amanda is saying -- about the secret holding power over her -- is the truth works really well.

I love the meld: they can say anything or feel anything in that meld.

And that last line!


Presume. Great story.


I almost cried reading your last story, at the end, when Saavik touches Amanda.
