Stunning. Evocative, poetic, just... well, see, now I don't have words!

Holy Squee!

This almost knocks "Enumeration" out of the ball park. What a gorgeous story.

Thanks, sweetie!

This is... beautiful. Except that word doesn't do justice to this story. You write my favorite Spock/Uhura dynamic *ever*. In fact, your characterization of all the New Trek characters is my favorite. As I type, I have four other tabs open with your stories. :D

Thank you for sharing this!

Wow, this is nice, and very sexy. Awesome.

I like the language stuff, too. Great job on being so thorough with that!

Oh, my! This is lovely. Intricate, elegant and beautiful.

His arms tighten around her, and she thinks it's poetry.

Poetry, indeed! This is lovely and lovingly crafted. brava.

this is beautiful! one of the best stories i've read in this fandom.

Oh man. I totally loved this. I'm new to the fandom and (so far) every piece that I've read has been phenomenal. I love how you transposed her actions as language, and the sheer will she showed in trying to create a language for she and Spock. It was so personal. Her desire to foster that bond mind blowing and I swear my breathe hitched when reading this. Superb job.

thank you so much for the kind words! I remember blushing MADLY when I wrote it, but I loved the idea at its core--that both of them speak Standard as their lingua franca, but that there are no words sometimes for what they are to one another.
