"An A/U in which Spock raises Kirk from the dead."
Reactions and Reviews
This vignette is rightly reputed a classic. In it, Spock is a sorcerer who engages in an act of necromancy—summoning Kirk from the dead. Gayle obviously understands something of magic. She knows that a circle is drawn to contain the energies of a magical working and to protect it from outside interference. She correctly states that a pentacle is a symbol of the Earth element. She also knows that a magical tool such as a pentacle becomes impotent through meditation which concentrates the magical intentions of the one who wields it. It's rare that I see a K/S writer deal with magic so convincingly. 
Mystic hoo-hah. Magician Spock using his one-time powers to call his Kirk back to life. Bleah.
