Fandom: Star Trek XI
Genre: Drama, with an (un)healthy dose of Angst.
Word Count: This chapter, around 2,500.
Summary: Amanda dies at childbirth and Sarek is left alone in raising a half-Human child. Confounded, he approaches a Vulcan mind-healer, who eventually becomes his wife. After the events of the Narada, Kirk and McCoy must deal with the aftershocks of Spock’s grief.
Rating: This chapter is PG-13, for subtle mentions of abuse.
Pairings: The story as a whole can be seen as the beginning of the epic friendship between Kirk, Spock, and McCoy…or, perhaps, the beginning of some epic Spock/McCoy. Either way is fine with me :)
Spoilers: For Star Trek XI. Minor spoilers for McCoy’s backstory in TOS and the older films, and major spoilers for the Grimms’ version of popular fairy tales.
Warnings: For this chapter, implications of the mental/psychological abuse of children.
Disclaimer: I do not own Star Trek, much to my chagrin. Neither money nor other tangible gain is being made by writing this story…as much as I wish this were not the case.
A/N: Quotes from the Grimms’ fairy tales are taken from their final edition. Translations are mine, and therefore, all mistakes. The Vulcan title contained herein I translate as “healer of the mind.” I made this up using the VLD. The idea of Spock having a stepmother comes from a prompt on the LJ kink meme.
