Reactions and Reviews
Somewhere in my mind, Kirk and Spock are immortal, incorporeal, existing somewhere in the ether that we pass through – that passes through us. Here is a story that reinforces that belief for me, and I loved all 2 and a half pages. I was warmed, lifted and exhilarated. Thank you Starshadow. 
I must say this is not at all what I expected. I love the concept of this short story! Kirk and Spock are communicating mentally, which is no surprise. But what is very much unexpected is that both men are dying. Long-bonded, they reach out to each other, at peace with what is happening to them and at what may lay ahead because, Spock reassures, they can never be parted. It’s a lovely, warm mind-conversation revealing in sweet simplicity how much they have loved over the years. There is trust and support and peace along with that all-consuming love. In only two and a half pages, Starshadow of the exquisite name has proven she knows a lot about love.
