Re: Similitude

T'Pol is grappling with attraction/affection for Sim, which she may not be able to separate from her attraction/affection for Trip, hence the kiss goodbye. Sim goes from puppy love to a confusion of feeling; he admits he's not sure if they're his feelings or Trip's. It's one of the charming and altogether tragic elements of the story. I've read HR's fics, and she nicely captures what is represented in the episode: two confused people trying to figure out how they feel, what they feel, and why the feel it. (Having a bias one way or the other is not the same as being wrong.)
