This Karla Kelly signature vignette is terrific. Told from the first person POV of a Vulcan, Sellin, ostensibly as an outtake from his autobiography (according to the clever footnote), we watch K & S in an A/U version of the episode of stealing the Romulan cloaking device (sorry— my memory of episode titles ain't too good. But you know the one anyway).
So many things to love in this story—Sellin's perfect affronted Vulcan demeanor; his astonishment over K & S's behavior with each other; but especially the incidences of voyeurism that really had me thrashing on the carpet. It will be a long time until I ever forget Kirk bending over the pool table or K & S soaping each other. Wow! On particular highlight was Spock lightly spanking one of Kirk's (creamy globes) buttocks. Okay, okay. That's just the kinda gal I am. The conclusion that Sellin comes to concerning Kirk and Spock's actions is typically clever of this author. The only difficulty I had was another too-short scenario of the whole backdrop of espionage with the Romulans and Klingons—the entire events were summed up in a few lines. A shame because it might have been very involving without upstaging Kirk and Spock.At any rate, I know I can always count on Karla Kelly for some wonderful K/S and definitely unique ideas. And CHAPTER 37 is no exception.
