- Comments: This is a series, written over decades and finally finished in 2008. The only description I can come up with for this story is "beautifully natural." The relationship as it is described is achingly real, with the fights and pain and difficulty a real relationship involves - but there's a sweet undercurrent of intimacy that promises, "no matter the difficulty or the pain, everything will turn out alright." Their characters are written absolutely true. This might just be the definitive TOS K/Mc fic.
