ok, so this is definitely a new turn on every pon farr story i've read so far. i have to say that i don't really "like" spock here, but that's probably just my human view on vulcan culture. and after all there's still a happy ending - kind of :)

It is the duty of an appreciative reader to
Review in thanks for the gift of a story. This strange tale I have often thought the best Pon Farr description as it fits well with the secrecy the Vulcans shroud things in and tells a Vulcan tale rather than one of human sexuality. Thank you

Wow, now that was an ending that I hadn't seen coming. I think I'm in love with your writing style, it's all so beautifully evocative, and you've captured Spock's 'voice' perfectly.
Deep, deep admiration for your writing.

It couldn't end any other way :). Kirk loves Spock way too much, and he knew Spock would never had done such a thing to him without the madness of Pon Farr. Plus, it apparently got Spock to relent and accept him (that's how I choose to interprent the ending. So all's well that ends well.
The analogy with the beast was nicely done. There are many Pon Farr cave fics around but you did manage to make yours different. I will confess to being a tad disappointed that there wasn't a hot sex scene like I'd been hoping for, but then, that's part of what makes your story different from the others too: you chose to emphasize the psychological effects of the Pon Farr on memory and perception. That is something we don't see often :). Great job.
