Black Rain is a Kirk/Spock story by Chris Waken.

It was published in the print zine Beside Myself #2.


"Stranded with an injured Spock, Kirk unknowingly releases his soul to the planet and enters a coma they are unable to pull him from when he and Spock are rescued."

Reactions and Reviews

When a strange phenomenon is included in a story, it seems to me that there must be a plausible explanation for it. The stranger it is, the more plausible the explanation must be. In this tale we have a split Kirk and no explanation whatsoever. Nevertheless, I did appreciate that wonderful moment in sickbay where McCoy served as a "human bridge"—giving freely of his energy to the comatose Kirk and Spock. This is what McCoy and healing are all about. [1]
