After the destruction of Vulcan, Spock shielded his mind to protect it from his broken bond with T’Pring. Little did he know another bond had already formed in its place.

Why You Should Read This:
It made me cry which is in itself something to seriously consider because while movies can sometimes rip my heart out — the written word rarely gets me that worked up. I can take breaks and walk away from a story (normally) but I’ve read this one three times and I tear up every time. Jim’s pain is physical and visceral –it’s as much a character is any other in the story. McCoy is charming and protective in this fic and Sulu and Chekov form a “cabal of ire” for Spock that amuses despite the situation.
