Summary: "Commander Spock, we have located your son," the Vulcan lady on the screen says, which would be great, except Jim can tell by the look on Spock's face that he's never heard of this kid before in his life. "If it is expedient, the child will be sent to join you on the Enterprise within the week."
Reasons for Reccing: Let me start by saying that kid fic is usually not my thing. Which is odd because I do like a well written deaged fic. I guess I like seeing my favorite characters in their element, rather than changing completely to settle down and raise a bunch of kids. This is a story where the child compliments the plot and the characters remain true to themselves and their personalities. This story features a young Vulcan child who is characterized so perfectly that I couldn't help but fall instantly in love with the whole scenario. Kirk rocks at being a parent, Spock remains logical, and the entire Enterprise crew is there to help out. We all know that Kirk and Spock make a great team. Parenting is yet another area where they're stronger together. There's such a slow build in this story that by the end, you'll be yelling at them to just do it already. Note the length of this fic. When I started reading, I soon realized I couldn't walk away and this became my Friday evening.
