Picture TOS to "One Particular Harbour"

This picture here is dedicated to Elise Madrid’s story One Particular Harbour which is one my absolute favourites of the stories written by her.


It’s such an intense, wonderfully written story that proves once more how well Elise knows the two men and can create an atmosphere.

Go read it everyone, but have some tissues close by. I needed them. Each of the fourish/five-ish times I reread the story. Which wouldn’t stop me the slightest to read it again and again.

The words are quoted form said story.

One Particular Harbour is a companion piece / sequel to Elise Madrid's story "Duty's Call" (which is posted to the K/S archive as well) and even though the understanding might be deeper if one read it before, this story can also be read as a stand alone piece.
Here is the link:


 @The Author (author!author!)

I sincerely, deeply, desperately hoped you like the picture and it seems you did *jumps up and down with joy*

I hope many more people will read your stories and this one in particular (*g*) and I do not doubt for one second they will love it.

Please know that I put in all the love I feel for that moving story of yours into the creation process and that I thank you for giving me/us this precious gift. Oh, and have I actually  mentioned how much I like One Particular Harbour? I do! :)

This is absolutely lovely, dear!

(I haven't read this particular story, but Elise Madrid has written several of my favourite TOS fics! After glancing at the warnings, I'm wondering if this one might be too sad for me though :/)

Thank you so much bb!! I'm happy you like even if you don't know the story.

And yep, it is kind of sad, but in the edn they are together, somehow and Elise does it so well. Being the softie that I am I totally I understand if you can't read it.
If you wanna know about the story itself, let me know.

I would love to hear a little bit more about the story itself (and also about Duty's Call). I'm particularly interested in learning more about what the warning for major character death entails.

In Duty's Call K/S are in theoir later years and are talking about their death, primarily about Kirk's death as his one is expected in some time, although of course none of them want's to realize that. Kirk of course wants that Spock will live on whereas Spock can not imagine to go on without his bondmate. *sigh*
But they both are doing fine at the end of the story.

One Particular Harbor Kirk begins exactly one year after Kirk's death (*SNIFFSNOBSNIFF*) and we accompany Spock through that one day and evening exactly 365 days after when he remembers three of four special occcasions in their life together. It's wonderful, really!!!!
And the end is not an unhappy one, really. Otherwise I could not rec that story.
Okay, and here're the "real" spoilers (highlight to read):
In the end, Spock agreed to wait one year. He agreed to try going on after Kirk's death for those 365 days which are over now. He's been broken and sad but kept his promise.
Now, he can finally go and he lays down to die - and then Kirk's mind welcomes him, waiting on the other side and so they are united again, for eternity this time.

Hope that helps dear! And be sure that Elise Madrid really really loves our guys :)

I almost started crying just reading your summary of this! I definitely want to read it but I will probably save it for a day when I really feel like crying my heart out.

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me more about the story, hon!

You're welcome dear! Always will be.
Let me know once you read it, whenever that might be.

*huggles back*

Really cool! Particularly love the shot of Spock lying down.

Thanks also for pointing out these stories. I haven't read them, but I will now. ♥

Thank you for the kind comment!!

And Spock...*sniff*...he's waiting for meeting Kirk again so they'll be united eternally.
The story is wonderful, really and I'm glad if I can point it out to some interested readers :)
