spock: logic is sexy

In news that will surprise no one...

ladies1st reveals are up, and I wrote Logic Demands That You Take Off That Ridiculous Hat, Get Naked, and Come to Bed for taraljc. I am imagining that all the logic and Vulcans and Socratic dialog tipped off anyone who reads this journal, and if not, the sudden appearance of Amanda/Sarek stories and meta probably did. I've never felt like I could claim a literary kink before, but I think Vulcans getting beaten at logic qualifies.

In other news that will surprise no one (least of all me), rubynye wrote my gorgeous Gaila/Pike story. Thank you ruby, and also, I totally called it. I would have been happy to have received this story from anyone, but I am especially happy to have received it from you.

Even though ladies1st stressed the hell out of me, I am really glad that I participated. I don't think I would have ever written Amanda/Sarek if it hadn't been on my recipient's prompt list, and if I had, I never would have played with the "let's get you out of those wet clothes" cliche. Shippy fic is out of my comfort zone in general, and so was the scenario. I'm not claiming I executed either beautifully, but I was very grateful to try something new. I will have to continue participating in the gift exchanges and challenges in the future.
Me too! I'll certainly claim beauty as an accurate descriptor of that glorious story, on IGS's behalf!
You TOTALLY called it. I laughed in glee that you did, and I'm so glad you liked it.

Also, I like the similarity in our stories -- both are very hopeful, in a way, because each is about a woman being an awesome person from the perspective of a man who finds her extremely attractive.
