A wonderful story and well written. Intuitave and creative ideas. I love the addition of the pendant and Hoshi's integrity in not using it with her crew mates. Still, there is that temptation to continue when she realizes that she's forgotten she is using it. I realize it's been several years since this has been updated, I'd love to see more.

That was a very lovely and sensual interlude between Trip and T'Pol. It was as if they were perfectly in sync. It is good to see them come together in understanding.
Poor Hoshi, she can't catch a break!
Thanks! It was fun to write TnT coming together without seaon 3 angst! Hoshi can't catch a break, can she? But crushes on bosses are dangerous.

I have been waiting forever for this chapter, Honeybee, and you didn't disappoint!
Trip and T'Pol... Wow! As much as I'd like to praise the steaminess and just plain hotness, which I am, the idea that Trip had claimed T'Pol in the Vulcan sense was a brilliant idea. Trip's rationalization that the alien influence only brought out latent feelings was good, too. And I loved this line of T'Pol's, given the context of their making love: "Vulcans don't do things half way."
I was sort of expecting something of the same with Jon and Hoshi, and Hoshi hearing Jon's thoughts about her was sweet. But the end caught me off guard. You sure know how to keep the tension level up. Can't wait to see how this part turns out.

YAY! Another chapter and it doesn't disappoint! I enjoyed the "claiming" at the end of the TnT scene. I think it added a sweetness to a very heady feeling that you created. Also, I, of course, enjoyed the A/S scene with Hoshi reading Archer's mind.
I feel like I've been watching one of those old tv shows. "Tune in next time to see...."
I am looking forward to see what happens next!

Really enjoyed this chapter. So is Hoshi going to find out how Archer really feels about her? Can't wait to see how this develops! The part about Trip and T'Pol was pretty hot too! Can we have an update soon?!!!

Reading it a second time is still quite enjoyable, but I'm left with a couple of other comments as well as my semi-silly one earlier.
First, I'd have liked to see something on the Paragaan storyline itself in this chapter, probably set on the planet. It feels like it's been a while since we've been there and I'm curious to know how the matriarchy-type issues are going to play out.
Second, Trip's first sentence in the last scene might be better off starting with the words "The more I tried to stay away..." For some reason the "it was like" keeps bothering the back of my brain.
Third, I really hope you're going to update soon. This is really a very interesting story, and not just for the shippy parts! I'd love to see where it ends up.

All those two ever needed was a little inhibition adjustment. I love the way you have them coming together, no denial on either part. I think T'Pol's explaination of how Trip was the logical choice is so funny and so T'Pol.
Isn't it funny that Hoshi could listen in on Malcolm's thoughts but felt like she was betraying Jon. That shows just how much she cares for him.
The end of the chapter is so heartwarming. The fact that T'Pol could not send him away and her blush at seeing him naked and aroused was so endearing. Just lovely.
Thank you for your thoughtful and observant review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the little details.

Oh, dear Hoshi! Maybe you should have listened in! :)
I'm thinking the next chapter will be nudging that NC-17 there, Honeybee! :) Yes, I is a bad, bad, girl!
Looking forward to the next chapter!
Awww! Thanks so much! I appreciate it.

Good explanation by Phlox, that the latent attraction is being acted on because of the alien influence!
Hoshi's thought about T'Pol wouldn't go around reading other people's minds -- LOL! And I can only imagine her reaction if Hoshi finds out that T'Pol is attracted to Trip and not Jon.
Will they or won't they? I'm betting they will. Hurry up with that next chapter, Honeybee!
:) I should get moving on that next chapter shouldn't I? Thank you so much. I'm very glad you are enjoying this AU.

I was simple drooling with that last scene. I loved that you have created a great TnT story without angst but the right amount of tension. I also love the voice of Trip and T'Pol in this story - you made them strong, intelligent and likabel and true to character. Heven't enjoyed a TnT story so much in a long time!
Great Hoshi-Jon scene - focussed Jon and Hoshi liking him. Really liked the idea of Hoshi using the pendant during work and not using it/want to use it when she is with Jon.
Oh thank you! I'm so glad you're enjoying the story - especially the AU TnT romance.

This is a great story. Very well written,and with
Trip and T'Pol portrayed far more believably than
Most of these fanfics. THis calls out for a longer
Story,and maybe more development in a series.
Placing it right after Shockwave gives a lot of room for AU development without the usual unbearably excessive angst. Looking forward to more.
Oh, thank you! Always good to hear from a new reviewer. Glad you are enjoying the story and think TnT are portrayed well. :)

Consider yourself pestered!
This was such a great chapter. Poor TnT tried to stay away from each other. Good thing for us that they couldn't!
I love that Trip wanted to be a considerate lover.
I also like T'Pol's "secondary concern" as to why Trip is the best choice.
Totally squee-worthy chapter. Please don't make us wait for the next!
I'm on it, my friend. Thanks for all the help and encouragement. :)

Honaybee I'm so glad you updated your story Like your Beta I certainly liked to see Trip&T'pol's relationship explored more in depth in your next chapter please.I've really enjoyed reading this story.I'd like to see T'pol's reaction to what's going to happen in your next update.
Thank you so much! It will be a pleasure to continue.
Date: January 03, 2012 12:10 pm Title: Chapter 6
WOW! Happy New Year! I found it amusing that Hoshi wishes for T'Pol's inner calm and T'Pol is busy throwing caution to the wind! I can't wait to see where you take this.
Everyone is kind of wrong about everything, right? I'm glad you noticed that. And I'm glad you're enjoying the story.

There's no need to clue her in to that dream you had about her, specifically, Tucker. No need at all.
LOL! Yup, no need at all, dear laddy!
Honeybee this is awesome. The way you've written the interaction between each of the main cast speaks volumes of how well you know your crew. That little wink that Trip give T'Pol near was spot on.
And, OMG! HOSHI! What are you doing? *facepalm* And, MALCOLM! What are you doing? A lovely, healthy looking woman right in front of you and you're thinking about food! Oi!!!
Watch out, Jon!
Great, as ever. Can't wait for the next chapter.
I'm so glad you approve. I rarely write second season - so it's been fun to get into the characters headspace just after Shockwave. Glad you like the wink, too. :) Thanks.

This is a great chapter. I'm glad to see Trip and T'Pol figuring this out, and not freaking out! It warms the shippy heart to see them so gentle and tender with one another.
That little devil Hoshi, running off to read the captains mind. Here's hoping she hears what she wishes.
Hoshi is going to get an earful, that's all I'm saying. And I'm glad you enjoy the TnT. :) I wanted them both to realize that this is something alien, despite them enjoying it. Thanks for reading.

I can't begin to tell you what I liked about this chapter, because I liked everything! The breakfast was wonderful, T'Pols response when she realize they shared a dream, the fact that Trip and T'Pol talk about personal things in a relaxing way. And then Hoshi finding out Malcolm's thought. It cracked me up! So funny, especially the random thoughts like "I am hungry".
The last scene between Trip and T'Pol was a great pleasure to read. Despite that it wasn't something that would have taken place in season two very easily, the scene felt very natural. Great chapter.
I'm glad you enjoyed Malcolm's thoughts. And TnT are both adults and figuring out that something is wrong, despite liking what is going on. So, I'm glad you thought it was natural. :)
Date: November 28, 2011 04:56 pm Title: Chapter 5
This is so great! I love it! First, Trip and T'Pol are dancing around exactly what their dreams were about, and T'Pol figures out that they shared a dream. Then Hoshi uses the pendant (I knew she would!) on Malcolm just to see if it works, and thinks about using it on Jon. And finally, Trip and T'Pol ... *thud*
I do like that Trip and T'Pol both realize something is going on, that normally they wouldn't be acting and reacting this way. I'm just as interested as they are to find out what Phlox's recommendation will be.
I find your style of writing very smooth and easy to read in this chapter. I can picture what's happening, yet you don't go overboard on description. Very neatly done! Can't wait for the next chapter.
Oh, you know Hoshi has to use that thing. And Jon's thoughts, well, they are going to be different from Malcolm's. I'm glad you are enjoying the TnT as well! I so appreciate your compliments. Thank you!

Wonderful Update nice to see T'Pol is puzzled by her dreaming baout Florida and the intimate the dream too. She's very unsettled by the turn of events.I really liked the pov of the dream Trip as well.The ending scene was romantic and well written. Honeybee I really like this story alot. Ican't wait to see what happens in your next chapter.
Thanks so much! I'm really glad you enjoyed this chapter.
Date: November 28, 2011 04:11 pm Title: Chapter 5
Okay, that was so hot, I had to get up from my spot here in the library cafeteria and buy some chocolate! I so hope Phlox is going to prescribe a night of hot interspecies monkey lovin' to get it out of their systems. Does this reader have a one-track mind? You betcha.
I loved the exchange over breakfast -- how Trip's comment about wishful dreaming rattled T'Pol.
The make-out scene...hot, hot, HOT!!
Please don't keep us waiting for more.
Awwww! I'm glad you enjoyed - and all they are doing is making out. Trip hasn't even gotten to second base yet. LOL! Phlox is going to suggest something along those lines, but our Vulcan isn't going for it - yet.
Date: November 20, 2011 04:48 am Title: Chapter 4
Okay. You left me with my jaw dropping and itching for more! The pace was excellent, swapping from one POV to the other in quick session.
I did giggle when you stopped that shared dream just short of the climax (pun intended :) ). Been there, done that! Always want to groan with disappointment when I wake at the good part!
Oh thank you! Working on the next installment. TnT are going to start figuring out something is up very soon! And Hoshi is, of course, going to get a lot more than she bargained for.
