Although I can't see Jim and/or Spock giving up, I think you've hit on the one circumstance that would have made them do so. I also think you've really struck the balance of each sacrificing for and protecting the other. It was a very moving story; thank you so much for writing it.

Author's Response:

Honestly, I didn't see it as giving up, but Kirk's desperate bid to beat the no-win scenario once again.  It may have cost them their lives, but it surely kept the Klingons from making good on their promise with regard to Spock, and allowed Kirk to make the choice that wouldn't compromise either his principles or those of the Federation.

The sacrificing for and protecting of the other was a no brainer, and what draws me hook, line and sinker into the complex relationship between these two.

*bows*  You're very welcome.  I'm pleased that it touched you in some way, especially given the context.  My original idea was not to have the story go down this path, but often they have a mind of their own, and once I started writing this was the course it chose...and it was all I could do to hang on for dear life.
