ST:TOS: Errors on the Edge of Forever, by louiseb

FANDOM: Star Trek: TOS
FIC LINK: Errors on the Edge of Forever
AUTHOR LINK: [fanfiction.net profile] louiseb
RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 11,000
MAIN CHARACTERS: Spock, James T. Kirk, Christine Chapel, Leonard McCoy

FIC SUMMARY: "A joyless smile, a shuttered look, a turn of shoulders. Is this how friendship ends?" Set after "The City on the Edge of Forever". Spock fears the worst.

RECCER'S NOTES: Second-person narrative is a rare choice for fanfic and, for that matter, also for profic, but oh how this story makes it work. It does a great job of portraying the careful balance of reason and feeling in Spock's mind, and the disconnect between "what you think" and "what you end up saying" was painfully familiar. Also: Christine Chapel is awesome.

(There is a leeetle bit of non-gen-ness in the interaction between Spock and Chapel, but it holds close to what we see in canon.)
