Why you should read this:
Kirk/Bones isn’t my go-to pairing in the Star Trek fandom. I normally read Kirk/Spock. But this story caught my attention. I liked the fact that this story is told primarily from Bones’ POV and that it is a slow burn story (no pun intended). It features all your favourite Enterprise characters, and all are well fleshed out.
I read this in two sittings, due to the length, but it stays one of my favourite stories in Star Trek, despite not being my normal pairing choice.
