Basically, Jim gets that he runs a ship of crazy geniuses that let him captain because they have much better things to do. He's okay with that. They let him pretend to be a pirate and infiltrate Orion crime rings, and honestly, what's better than that?

This is not the first time I've read a rationale similar to this one, but I find it never fails to amuse me. Kirk is just more physically participatory than one might think someone of his position should be. Taken in retrospect, this theory explains much of TOS away-mission procedures.

I, randomly, re-read YGTITE just a few days ago. It was a decidedly nice surprise to have this to enjoy so soon after. Thanks!!!

One very minor note... it appears you may have one apostrophe MIA in this section. After getting this fic in shape and coded for public consumption, I imagine tracking down itty-bitty things when the rest is damn-near perfect may be the furthest thing from the top of your list of things to do (&/or care about). Lemme know if/when you're interested. ;)

I don't know how I missed this in the first read but omg competitive meditating . . .

and the description about the colony - like dune with an ocean is just perfect

also last line was great! haha poor jim

In the interest of being random: "They let him pretend to be a pirate and infiltrate Orion crime rings, and honestly, what's better than that?" When I read that, I saw "infiltrate Onion rings". It was terribly droll.

And yes, I still love this story excessively and to an insane degree. Onwards!

Oh man, you've got me so worried about Spock it's not funny. Having the insight into Jim's inner workings alleviates some of the concern, but Spock just seems off in this chapter ... my little shipper heart is wailing, "please let nobody break their bond!!!"

*-* Pretty fic. Although I sometimes get a little angry at T'Prina (who is still awesome in every meaning of the word) for taking up Jim's valuable Spocktime. Maybe I'm just used to Spock-centric fic, though.

...then again, he's the son of Winona Kirk, and if anyone, anywhere, had thought he was not capable of being a competitive asshole, they just hadn't met his mother or taken a long look at her Academy record. - Hell yeah, Winona!

"Lyra's patients are all non-Vulcans. Seems there's a rash of Vulcan interspecies divorce, Las Vegas style. Ten so far. They said it was voluntary, but Lyra can't get through to any of them - Fucking hell...

"Sometimes it's not my fault," Jim says, extending a hand.
"But usually, sir, it is." Groaning softly, Evans lets Jim pull him up.
- Yay, redshirts!


Amanda Warrington recommended this and oh boy, I'm so glad she did! Awesome story!

"I would prefer Cadet T'Prina accompany you, Captain," Spock answers; preference is code for 'and good luck getting out of this bit of flawless logic'.

ROFL!
I love Kirk's characterization - he's perfect!

PS - Do you mind if I friend you? You're a wonderful writer.
