"After TʼPringʼs rejection, Spock has little time before the madness returns and Kirk finds that he is the only one who can help Spock."
"Fuck logic!" Kirk exploded. He'd gotten through the day telling himself McCoy was wrong. He'd gotten through the afternoon telling himself lies. He couldn't get through the night on logic. "Dammit, Spock," he swore again, "logic has precious little to do with this! You've spent your life working to achieve your goals. Do you mean to tell me that logic dictates you should just crawl in bed and die now? You've saved my life more times than I can count. You've saved the ENTERPRISE more times than I care to think about! Do you honestly believe it's logical to just give up?" So much for his resolve not to let anger intrude."

'Fire-Dare' by Alexis Fegan Black is the story of how Kirk and Spock first came together. It is a pon farr story that explains the circumstances of the bond forming between captain and first officer and is written with the depth of language and philosophy that embodies much of Alexis‘ writing.
