The desert can seem so barren, so hostile to life, so severe and
unrelenting. The wind either caresses
the sand or whips across it,
creating and destroying sand dunes in mere moments. Oases, creeks,
rivers all more rare
and precious than diamonds and thus treasured
The planet Vulcan is mostly different kinds of deserts,
having many differing words for kinds of heat, many of them derived
from the oldest words used in the most
ancient tongues to mean their
planet, Ponnafarr, literally the fire.
The cycle of life is unforgiving on Vulcan
and may seem to be filled
with violence. Every living thing seems to be both predator or prey,
even the vegetation moving
around to try to capture its food,
whether water or something else. Spock knows his people once were
close in temperament
to savage beasts. That his people were violent,
predatory, killing the elderly or the weak in times of drought just
the precious liquid of their blood. He knows that his behavior
when trying to get to Vulcan was erratic and sometimes violent.
since his combat with Jim eased the symptoms of Pon Farr, and
considering that the choice of challenge leading
to a ritual combat
to the death it likely has the crew wondering. It has likely led his
colleagues to believing that
if T'Pring had chosen to honor the bond
and mate with him, that the mating would have been just as violent.
worried that if they knew the truth that he would loose their
respect. So, only one other person on the ship would learn
truth. Someone bound by oath to keep medical or personal information
Entering the new place
of mating, he immediately saw the one chosen
by him, his soon-to-be bondmate. The hunger of Pon Farr had built up
within him after the temporary relief he found after fighting
with Jim. Spock saw Leonard waiting for him, dressed in a
outfit of light blue, slacks and shirt easily removable.
The science officer straightened his Vulcan outfit
somewhat nervous and conspicuous now that this moment had come.
Taking a deep breath he started to
sing, "I am the very model of a
modern science officer. I have information alien, planetary and
astronomical. I know
the admirals of the fleet and I can quote facts
historical, from Rura Penthe to Iridani, in order categorical. I am
well acquainted with matters that are logical. I understand
theorems, both the proven and the theoretical. About the planet
I can relate the latest news, with many incontrovertible
facts and in many different hues.
I am very good at Astro
and Quantum physics. I know the scientific
name of beings biologic. I know that in matters of the works of
and Chaucer, I am the very model of a modern science
officer." At the end of his personal mating song, he adopted the
pose of husband waiting for the signal of acceptance.
Spock got into what to humans would look like a curtsy.
am called Leonard McCoy or Bones -- cranky old Bones. Though I
don't know why, but I'm still called Bones, cranky old Bones,
I have tricorders and biobeds, and excellent meds, I've scanners,
and bone knitters, and scalpels;
I've assistants and nurses to
assist me, with all patients that come and go.
I have microscopes and test tubes,
I've liniment and lubes, Sweet
sedatives and stimulants, and if they don't work I try my beads and
rattles, and excellent
aged Scotch." Ending his song, he goes to
Spock and takes his hands, helping him to rise.
They start dancing together,
something Leonard requested "Let's do
the time warp," so they did. At the end of the dance Leonard kisses
leads him to their bed. They make love with joy,
laughing, tickling each other, each trying to outdo the other in
It is glorious, fun, as they celebrate their love.
Leonard so very glad that at this time Vulcan's become playful in
and if denied their play, only then becoming violent enough to
combat the one taking away their fun in a fight to the death.
the laughing stops, the tickling and silliness ended, Leonard
wraps his arms around Spock and kisses him. Cherishing their
and so very glad he now has his own pointy-eared hobgoblin
