Why You Should Read This: Did I mention that I love Sentinel AUs? And also the way the author writes is awesome. You see how Spock is all like ‘my body is changing, but so what’ kinda outlook where he doesn’t want doctors to look at him and become a subject and you see Jim where he’s so damaged from Tarsus and the aftercare he got afterwards from other Guides. You guys should read this.
