Love that last line.
After all the pain and joy that Scott goes though to get the item from Neva and the unexpected extras.
For a three part story it just a joyful breeze to read, I could imagine the world and Scotty and Neva attempts to avoid the syndicate as they tried to get to the Space-port.
Author's Response: This was just as much fun to write, I promise. Thank you!

Ah, a good stinger ending!
Loved the line about a commendation for Kyle for his timing.
And hey, ya never know. Perhaps they will meet again? After all, she's gotta return his phaser.
Author's Response: I have no idea what the future brings. But thank you for reading it, and commenting. <3

::sigh:: A satisfying ending - definitely the one I was looking for. ;) A nice mix of humor, action, drama, angst and friendship. I sure hope they are able to meet again in the future - even if it's just to share coffee and reminisce about old times.
I like, too that he trusted her enough to go along with her plan, even though every fiber of his being screamed that it was the unchivalrous thing to do. It showed that he respected her as a friend, a colleague, and was willing to put his life in her hands, and trust that she was talented and intelligent enough to save herself - save both of them, in fact. Really nice work.
Author's Response: I think I especially liked that. That they were well-matched, and that she was capable and canny and his rescuer. It sort of balances all of the ridiculous misogyny that could creep into the original series, and also the sheer ridiculousness that is Montgomery Scott in love. Here, a friend -- a good one, even so quickly made -- and an equal, and brave, and smart. It just works better. I'm so glad you liked it.

Awww. Scotty and Neva.
This was a sweet story, filled with action, adventure, humor, drama, and a bit of romance. It was good to see Scotty and Neva hook up and both realize that it wasn't about love it was about a deep friendship with some benefits.
Scotty's get away, his worry over Neva, and his relief were all just right. He was truly a gentlemen throughout, which I think won Neva over more than anything. He treated her as a person, not a thing, and that's exactly the way she should have been treated.
I'm glad Scotty kept it to himself. That was a special time and one I'm sure he'll treasure for a long one. I can only hope Neva and Scotty meet again (and we get to see it!) ...
A truly enjoyable piece.
Author's Response: I don't think it'd ever occur to that man NOT to keep his private life quite private, indeed. And thank you, I really enjoyed writing it.
