The other day, taraljc on lj warmed the cockles of my heart by posting a well-written open letter to ST fandom concerning the characterization of new Kirk. In short--that there were too many people writing in the fandom after the movie release who seemed unable to write him with any depth or degree of maturity.

THANK YOU.  Not that I think many people will listen (or have the desire to actually understand the argument and change their ways) but...the response showed there were many people out there who agreed with her. Thank god.

Maybe one day I can stop opening--and closing very quickly--story links to new K/S after reading a paragraph or so.

One bright spot--I was kind of sad to see the amount of Kirk/McCoy being churned out in comparison to K/S. But now? Um. If it's mostly all that quality (and I use the term loosely) then I'm glad it's not K/S.

yes, I'm an old curmudgeon, one with a relative set of standards.

OMG...that's a must. It's *wonderful*. I was bowled over when I first read it, especially given that she *wrote it so fast after the movie came out*. Amazing.
