Reactions and Reviews
Another wonderful story in this wonderful zine. Kirk and Spock must infiltrate the Romulans to steal their cloaking device. In this universe, the Romulan commander is male. And when some Vulcans come to help, one of them is an unbonded woman. The relationship between the Vulcan woman, T’Pru and Spock is just great. I loved their mindmeld where T’Pru realizes Spock’s true feelings for his captain. I loved Kirk’s dilemma of needing T’Pru for their mission and yet feeling jealousy.
A lot happens—all exciting and well-written, culminating in Spock being captured by the Romulan commander, then rescued. But not before he’d been given a powerful aphrodisiac. T’Pru tries to help him, but she knows the only one to help Spock is Kirk. I loved the mind meld scene where Kirk enters Spock’s consciousness in order to save his life. This was beautifully done with a very erotic scene when Kirk gives Spock a real cosmic blow job. But the best sex comes later when Spock takes command and really takes command.Goodness! Talk about thrashing on the carpet! 
"The Loss of Innocence" (21 pages) has a very complicated plot. I think too much happens, and that it either needed to be simplified or that it needed to be longer and more developed. This is an a/u story where the Romulan commander with the cloaking device is a sadistic male named Temek whom Spock knows from before. He knows Temek is sexually interested in him and is prepared to sacrifice himself.
There are two Vulcans who are prominent in the story, too. Stark is a bigot who disliked Spock for his hybrid status, and T'Pru is a woman who would love to bond with him.There are many twists and turns in this story. And I don't want to give away the plot.
