Reactions and Reviews

The teacher in me cringed to see this page taken up by one run-on sentence, but it’s the perfect format for Jim Kirk’s stream of consciousness. He is walking about ten feet behind his first officer thinking how lonely they both are. He thinks how very much he wants to ease the Vulcan’s loneliness. He catalogues Spock’s many assets and how much he wants Spock sexually. Then Spock turns.... Right there in the corridor of their ship with crewpersons passing, Spock mentally joins them. A little hard to believe, yes, but a perfect way to close this one scene story without diluting its power by adding another scene in a different, more private, location. Sigh. Very nicely done. [1]
This story is basically one sentence that fills the entire page; a stream of consciousness of Kirk's thoughts about Spock one morning. Very nice. I liked this. [2]
