This has to be the most hysterically funny piece I
have ever read! You've caught their whole relationships
just perfectly! i love how it's set when these women have
been together for quite a while. It makes their dialogue
-- the fact they feel they can ask these questions --
What is so delightful is how fun the collision between
the Human concept of friendship and the Vulcan one is.
Complete opposites! One is based on intimacy of detail--of
knowing and telling everything, especially the past.
The other is based on simple acceptance of one in the
present. So often Saavik is made more human, it is refreshing
to see her be herself--alien!
And if Spock is the King of Exaggeration, Saavik is
the Queen if Misdirection! A perfectly Romulan sense
of humor, frighteningly combined with a Vulcan execution
of delivery. What a riot! This crew is perfect together--and
I love how you have her give the truthful answer and
they get all floored and then she pulls the rug out
on them with a distraction truth. Thank you!
I haven't laughed so hard in a long time! I actually
pounded on my desk at points I was laughing so hard,
and my cheeks feel stiff from grinning through the whole
thing! But I'm keeping the mental note: Don't play Truth
or Dare with you!!!
