Title: Naught But Death Shall Sunder Us Author Jade_eyes Genre: Mush!!!!!! Natch. Characters: S/U, etc. AN: This is an AU of what I consider canon LOL It's like the PTB want our delectable darling to bond with someone besides his lady of choice. He gets support from Sarek, of course. There is pressure and a seeming dire necessity, so what is there to consider? Nyota, obviously, thinks: What is there to think about? :duh: And there really isn't ...

The Enterprise was commissioned to take a group of settlers, which they readily did. Sarek was in private communication with Spock, letting him to be on the alert that the High Council would bring pressure to bear for him to take a firm and committed life-partner. "You know my stance on the matter." His son responded. "This is non-negotiable." Sarek gave a resigned shrug. "Yes, I have told them this, also. They shall doubtless try, even though you and I both know the futility." Spock signed off, wondering if he should tell Nyota of this likely happenstance. TBC -- ++++++ Yummmm! LOL I'm loving it!!!!!!! As if, who didn't know that.
