Reactions and Reviews

This is a short piece -- very short, just over two pages I think. But the author packs a helluva punch into those pages. It's done from Spock's POV 3rd person, and to me at least it's obvious which ep she's springing off from -- Operation: Annihilate! -- always a favourite of mine anyway.

As it starts all Spock knows is pain, massive pain, overloading his nerves and brain. Can't see; can't understand what he hears and that's not much over the chaos in his skull. He can't even call out for help, he can't find the strength to make loud enough sounds. He's really starting to get scared when he feels a touch against the side of his face, fingers in his hair, like that. And even though he still doesn't know what's happening to him or why, he can relax the tiniest bit, because he knows this much: Jim is here, now, beside him. Only then can he listen clearly enough to hear his t'hy'la's thoughts, and know that he will be all right.

I've read this several times and every time I read it I like it even better. Very nicely woven, Khiori! [1]
