Shortly before the first Christmas after the V'ger mission, McCoy faces a seemingly impossible choice: give a presentation on Vulcan courtship rituals for the annual Federation Medical Conference or risk his career.  When Kirk, as aresult, is forced to choose between helping him and keeping his years-old but so far unbroken promise to Spock not to share the pon farr details he'd revealed to his Captain, his choice leads to a loss of Spock's trust and the disintegration of their friendship as Christmas approaches. Then a mysterious star heralds a Christmas Eve miracle that draws the two of them back together at a crucial time.

Story Notes:

This story is mainly K&S friendship, but there are also S/Ch elements, such as Spock and Christine being engaged. Also, I need to warn readers of the following unlisted facts: the story contains some religious references, and it deals with attempted suicide. You should also know that this is the final, zine-published version, not the one on my website or posted to ASC.
