Yes, I have been purposely hiding out, avoiding reading the comments on the last chapter of A Brief Encounter.
I get it, it’s not the nice happy ending you wanted, but it was never meant to have the perfectly tied up with a pink bow ending. The name of the story is A Brief Encounter.
I admit, it was pretty heartless of me to end things the way I did, but come on, it’s a TOTALLY in canon story. I don’t know about you, but I NEVER got the vibe at the end of The original Star Trek that Spock and Uhura were together. It could have been possible that they explored the option at one time… but that does not change the fact that they never had the “grand romance”
After the episode The Changeling, Spock went on to having “relations” with The Romulan Commander, Zarabeth, and Valeris… (plus that girl in the cloud city, whose name escapes me at the moment, had a thing for him) and believe me, he wasn’t lonely, pining for the loss of anyone.
That’s what’s so great about the Reb00t Star Trek. Spock gets his second chance and I am ALL FOR his relationship with Reboot Nyota in those types of stories. However, as for TOS, that would be: no.
However, I am NOT without compassion. I will write you all an epilogue… so some of you can have your happy ending… and not try to murder me in my bed.
But think about it, some relationships are just never meant to be. That was a HUGE!!! theme in TOS. Look a Kirk. It was always borne in upon us that Kirk would NEVER get his happy ending… and they even went so far as to KILL HIS SON to prove it! Kirk was also married to the Enterprise (we were beaten over the head with that theme again, and again, and again… and again!)… and Spock, by default, was “married” to Kirk.
Believe me, I really do love the story as it is; it’s a good commentary on regret and loss and moving on.
BTW: There is STILL a happy ending planned for For the Love of Jane Full Circle Heart’s Guardian!!
