21st Century fire department AU. Paramedic Leonard McCoy flees a disastrous break-up in Savannah and ends up working at a fire department in Iowa.

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.


One Comment:

  1. Thanks so much for this rec! I just finished reading it and I wanted to tell you how much I loved this fic. I likely never would have read it had you not rec’d it here as I don’t read Kirk/McCoy, but I’m really, really glad that you did and that…I did. 😉 This is definitely going to be a favorite of mine, and I may actually go looking for a little more of this pairing. I guess you can teach an old dog, after all. Thanks!
