Notes & check-in on blind!fic =3

So I successfully named my Vulcans! =D I hope I don't need to name any more. I mean, I can do it if need be, but I spent an afternoon on the VLD and at the end finally focused enough to generate names. So!

♀ Healer: Tol'Sha
♂ Healer: Vasik
Spock Prime alias: Kirak
And I wanted a Vulcan term for "The Traveler" title that I gave Prime and am thinking Kwi'Halovausu (from far away/from a distance traveler) works best from the options I played with. Not sure this will ever actually be used in the story.

I am currently at 9,870 words! I've revised why Kirk is blind plus added an "in between" section to sum up parts of the movie that are of particular importance – things that have made Kirk's vision deteriorate, plus give a small preview to the relationship dynamic between him and Spock Prime.

My thoughts on potential pairings and relationships:
— Kirk and Bones: friendship only. There's potential for some minor UST, but as I've reviewed and reworked what I have written thus far, their interactions continue to sing "bffs" at me.
— No more Scotty/Uhura, I'm going to some femslash with Uhura and Gaila! Besides, it makes more sense that they could start getting together shortly after the breakup with Spock since the women have a history together.
— I'm a diehard K/S shipper, no question about it. Spock needs to work with me to get this to flow right, though. At the moment I can only conceptualize a pre-slash path. But we'll see how Spock loosens up.
— Kirk and Spock Prime. I have recently become quite addicted to this complicated relationship. Already I have implications of a bond reawakened and formed between the two and I think I'll continue on that. I also noted that before I was even thinking along these lines, the two had a couple moments with ozh'esta (the Vulcan finger kiss of bonded pairs). D'aww... This wouldn't be the ultimate pairing, though. Probably more along the lines of wistfulness and light UST.

Some final words for the moment: Trying to figure out where treatment for Kirk will take place and how the setup can work so that I can include members of the crew. Originally I thought he'd be going off planet, but now it seems to make more sense to be on Earth because the Enterprise isn't going anywhere for a while as she's repaired and other things are sorted out with Starfleet.

Suggestions on future scenes and potential plotlines to throw in would be super! I'm actually trying to go all-out on this project and use notecards to do some story-boarding. (As I did for NaNoWriMo. I had a big success with the method.)

Congratulations on finding names. :)

Starfleet Medical Central Hospital? And it'd be at SanFran so the Academy and Starfleet Headquarters are there too. The crew is there too for debriefings or other things - sorta like the first port on the shore - and they'll show up to visit at times. Maybe? :)

That would be the obvious, huh? =3

Everyone's in San Fran right now, anywho. Part of the Academy is being cordoned off for Vulcan survivors (which is how Kirk's currently in an infirmary area in the "Vulcan sector," as McCoy says). I guess in part things will depend on if I choose an alien race as the main surgeons - in that case perhaps procedure would take place at an embassy? Also kind of wondering if I might put things on a space station. XD I mean, there's gotta be reasons to do operations in space, right? (Well, I know that was the case in Contact...) Just not sure if that would be required for this eye thing. =p

Oh! Also exciting, I looked up eye stuff yesterday and think I have an idea for an explanation why Kirk's eyes differ in nu! versus prime 'verses. ;)

Maybe the doctor doing the operation is a Vulcan specialist?

If you really wanna go for space, maybe it's because certain conditions could only be successfully created there (like low-gravity environments for a longer time)?

I haven't checked in on this story in a while and I am very glad to see that it is being continued, the concept really grabbed me when I read it. I look forward to reading it again when it is finished.


I like the names. My first reaction when I read Spock Prime's alias was oh wow that's neat it's one letter away from Kirok, the name Kirk was given in the episode This Side of Paradise.

Oops, wrong episode title, I meant The Paradise Syndrome. They both have the word paradise and alas I picked the wrong title when typing.

lol, my alpha mentioned this and I was like "wha?" Not well-versed enough in TOS details, so truly it's coincidental... pretty funny. :3
