A/N: I know this chapter has taken forever, and I apologize. Real life has been attacking me with a vengeance: I'm working a full time job, school started back up again (and one of my classes is pre-calculus) and I'm in the middle of moving. My beta has also been very busy with real life, so it seemed like whenever I had a free moment she was occupied!

A/N: Well, here it is. This is officially the 18th chapter overall. So if there are 36 chapters total, it means we are halfway through this story :) And at this point, I have hit over 90k words (By the official count, which isn't considering author's notes, etc). I thought I'd be lucky to hit 100k with the entire story, so I am very proud of myself xD. Also, this week I have a wonderful, FANTABULOUS, utterly BEAUTIFUL banner made by the bestest gal in the whole wide world --
[info]avictoriangirl !!!

In the last two weeks I have gotten two very, very special presents that I've been anxious to share. FANARTS! MedicatedManiac illustrated the last scene from Chapter Five, when Kirk decides he'll never be outside of Spock's bubble again! And surrenderdammit went back to Part One, Chapter Eight and illustrated Kirk's babysitting of the wittle bebe Vulcans. I AM IN LOVE WITH BOTH OF THESE.

A/N:
I forgot to mention, last chapter. Any martial arts moves I am attributing to suus manha are real moves. They come from the Korean martial art of Hapkido, which I studied for several years back in high school. Hapkido is very similar to Judo, and has many of the same moves. It's a lot of holds and throws…which means many, many opportunities for Kirk and Spock to touch ;)

A/N: For those of you that have been waiting patiently (or not so, in some cases XD) I thank you from the bottom of my heart! I'm so sorry for the delay, but it was necessary. I have undertaken, with the help of my phenomenal new beta, [info]awarrington, a massive re-write of Part Two. There were a lot of things I wasn't happy with, and I'm so very very grateful to her for offering to help me. Her assistance has been invaluable!

What does this mean to you, dear readers, besides the delay? It means that I have had to rewrite quite a bit of Part Two, Chapter One. If you would please re-read the chapter before this one, found here then carry on to Chapter Two.

As apology, this chapter (I hope) makes up for it? :D

Part One, Chapter One

A/N: And, because amsuewithaview over on FF.net brought up a good point, and I thought I'd fill everyone in on my explanation (because it's not likely that Kirk will ever come across these details in the course of things):

I actually made a conscious decision not to include Spock Prime in my story. I was debating whether he should show up to say hello before they leave the planet, but decided against it. Here's my reasoning ^_^ . While I too adore Spock Prime, I have noticed that he can easily become a crutch for the characters. He tells Kirk how to interact with nu!Spock, he smooths things over with the crew, and while he is always doing *GOOD* things, he doesn't really let them learn about each other naturally. I always had the impression from the movie that he didn't want to interfere with nu!trek lives more than he had to -- and so, in my story, he doesn't interact with them. He helped put an end to the crisis his own actions had caused, gave nu!Spock a little nudge in the right direction, and decided he wasn't going to contact them anymore. I'm not saying that he doesn't look in from afar, but he doesn't want to be a meddling old man ^_^.

A/N: I have noticed that some people write a "soundtrack" to their fanfictions. I really only have about seven songs that I've listened to the entire time I've been writing this. I'll usually find the one that gets the inspiration flowing, and stick it on repeat. The entire time I write the scene/chapter.
Those songs are:
Untouchable by Taylor Swift
Superstar by Taylor Swift
Jump Then Fall by Taylor Swift
Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart by Alicia Keys
Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis
They Don't Care About Us by Michael Jackson
Stay Beautiful by DIGGY-MO'
Juves by DIGGY-MO'
The first 5 are unrequited love/love from afar. Michael Jackson is for ACTION MOMENTS! And DIGGY-MO' gives me all the happy scenes (mostly Kirk Sulu Chekov times). As you can tell, there is VERY MUCH a theme to what I'm writing. You can also tell that my tastes…vary. XD

A/N: I just hit the halfway mark for writing this story….and I have boggled myself. The longest thing I've ever written – which was HUGE for me, and I never thought I'd go any further – was around 30k words. it's only a little baby 27 pages long… and this GIANT THING that I have undertaken is already 80k words, with around 140 pages. At halfway. I HAVE ASTOUNDED MYSELF. Needless to say, Herman is a really really persuasive Plotbunny. Of doom, death, and destruction.
