Thank you so much. It was a bit of an experiment, and I was nervous before I posted. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Wow. This fic is gorgeous beyond words. I'm looking forward to any and all your future works.
ljc: omg kittytaraljc on 31st May 2009 02:20 (UTC)
thanks! I've got some stuff on the horizon that's more gen-oriented, and erm... some Pike/Number One-ish, because I'm weird like that. but I'm loving Spock/Uhura SO HARD OMG.

Absolutely beautiful - the words drew me in so deeply that I could practically feel the emotions first-hand.

She writes sonnets on his bare back with her short blunt nails

Be still my heart.
ljc: star trek (snog)taraljc on 31st May 2009 02:22 (UTC)
I kinda love so much that she has short nails. I mean, Uhura Prime had these gorgeous manicured long nails, but I always keep my nails trimmed short because it messes with my keyboard too much. And I was thinking about how sexy short nails with dark polish looked on Uhura, and erm... the image presented itself.

Wow. O_O Just... wow. This was absolutely gorgeous! And so heartbreaking...

thanks so much. I'm enjoying the hell out of this pairing.

Oh my good lord that is gorgeous. This, this, a thousand times this. From the very beginning with debunking that ridiculous language myth to the end with poetry and kisses and argh I just—

Flailing motions and squeeing. I think that about sums it up. I love it.

this is amazing. what a beautiful way to show how actions speak louder than words,or i suppose more appropriately, how actions speak when there are no words.

thank you for sharing and i hope you don't mind my commenting!
ljc: whofictaraljc on 31st May 2009 02:29 (UTC)
How could I mind? Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means a lot.

Great start with the myth and from there to the moment. I wondered how Uhura would deal with the linguistic limitations of such a ruthlessly logical society!

You really nailed this piece right here -- So she tries to tell him, with the language of her body.
ljc: star trek (spock/nyota otp)taraljc on 31st May 2009 02:29 (UTC)
I wasn't sure where I was going, until I got to there, and then it just clicked inside my head. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Wow, amazing.

thanks so much.

So, so gorgeous.
I love that there is so much tenderness along with the passion between them.
ljc: hug spock now!taraljc on 31st May 2009 02:31 (UTC)
The 'lift scene to me is all about tenderness, and I wanted to bring that into this as much as I could.
desds on 27th May 2009 04:32 (UTC)
This was great! And props for doing research. hehe
ljc: star trek (awesome uhura)taraljc on 31st May 2009 02:32 (UTC)
I'm addicted to research. I want people to not get thrown out of my stories by inaccurated details if they can be at all avoided, plus I love learning new things.

She wants to find a word to express her love and their relationship! Ahhhhhhh!

This pairing, when done right, reduces me to incoherence.

Lovely use of figurative language in this. Very poetic and kind of floaty. Sexy, too.
ljc: star trek (foreplay)taraljc on 31st May 2009 02:33 (UTC)
Thanks so much! It was a bit experimental, so I was nervous. But I'm so glad it worked for you.
