Story Notes:

A/N:� What if McCoy had been called away at the last minute, and Kirk and Spock had beamed down without him for Spock’s wedding?� Here’s an AU look at how things may have played out. �McCoy’s POV.� Warning:� multiple character deaths.

One needs to have a working knowledge of the events in the TOS episode ‘Amok Time’ for this to make sense.

Written for the ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ challenge at Ad Astra.

Beta:� Many thanks to Sam Pengraff, who graciously agreed to read this over for me.� His pointers and illuminating suggestions made all the difference in this story. :D� And as always, to the lovely T’Paya, who in spite of pressing, life-altering issues at the moment, made the time to offer thoughtful and helpful suggestions to a friend.

Once again, this is a tad too long to be posted as one continuous story, so I've had to break it into two chapters.
