Strangers waitin’, up and down the boulevard, their shadows searchin’ in the night. Streetlight people, living just to find emotion; hiding somewhere in the night.
Why You Should Read This:
LadyBlahBlah’s writing of Spock is one of the best I have ever read. I truly believe she has managed to captured the Vulcan logic with the Human emotionalism exquisitely in her Spock particularly in his inner thoughts. It’s a weakness of mine but I do love Professor Spock.
James is a capable young man who has carved out a successful career in prostitution. He is content and happy with his life although his dark past do keep popping up to remind him that he cannot escape it forever.
They meet in a bar and a slow, steady friendship grows and that lasting partnership we are always hinted at in Star Trek begins to take space. I like the slowness, the deep understanding and respect that they both have for one another. You should read this it is gorgeous in its writing and the gentle story of soulmates. I would have loved to see a sequel in this universe but alas…
