Reactions and Reviews
A lovely, simple two page (very signature Karla Kelly) story of Kirk and Spock having a conversation about Lincoln and Surak (and the events from the corresponding episode) and love. Kirk says: “Love between mates can be the most pleasurable sensation in the universe. More, it is a sharing of self that is unsurpassed. Love shared is indescribable.”
Kirk declares his love and Spock accepts, but tells him of pon farr and how their relationship will be a lifetime commitment. I just loved that Kirk agrees right away!Karla Kelly! Where have you been, girl? I know you’re reading this! I miss your stories!
