Summary: It really does take a village to raise a Jim.
Reasons for Reccing: It's refreshing to read a story where Jim is not solely defined by all the bad things that's happened during his short, turbulent life. Yes, those events shaped him, but that's all there is. This author creates an original character who is wise, intelligent and so completely Vulcan that I think I loved him more than anyone else. Normally I don't read stories where an OC is a prominent character, but in this work, the OC makes the story rather than detracting from it. Also, it contains the funniest funeral scene I have ever read... and that's all I'm going to say about that.
