Spoilers: Through "Home."
A little background: "Reconnecting" was my first fanfiction story. During the summer preceding the premiere of Season 4, I heard a lot of spoilers about "Home," and speculation was rampant among T/T fans regarding which direction TPTB would take the T/T storyline following T'Pol's marriage. Angst? Avoidance? Friendship? The question wouldn't leave me alone. Then, lo! the muse began whispering an answer in my ear, and she wouldn't shut up. So I scribbled down this little piece to get it all out of my system (or so I thought at the time). The story was posted almost two months before "Home" was broadcast. Little did I know the journey I was beginning.
Note: some details in this story were based on an early script for "Home," which contained elements ultimately dropped from the final shooting draft, such as the presence of a Vulcan warrior/executioner (à la "Amok Time") at the wedding, and Trip watching the ceremony from inside the house.
Thanks to agentj for the beta work.
