In answer to Eimeo’s challenge
‘Anyone ever seen the magnificent film "Truly, Madly, Deeply", starring Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman? I'd love to see an AU K/S fic based on that. Basically, Kirk's lover, Gary Mitchell, has recently - and unexpectedly - died and he's having a hard time getting past his grief. While Kirk hovers on the verge of despair, Gary comes back to haunt him benignly and, surreptitiously, to help him move on. Because Kirk has just met a mysterious man named Spock, who could be so much more to him if he can just let go of Gary's memory and face up to a future without him...’
I’d like to say a big thanks to my betas, Aldora 89 and Fagur Fiskar, for all their hard work, enthusiasm and encouragement. Thanks too, to Eimeo for posting the challenge. Not beta read from chapter 33 onwards.
