This is a fantastic character study and great source of new headcanon. I'm always in awe of those who can say something so meaningful in far fewer words than I'd need, too.
Honestly, I don't find my way to too much on here that doesn't feature sexytimes, but your writing always proves to be worth the detour. :)
Aw, thank you; what a lovely thing to say! I know how, um, compelling sexy times can be :-), so I'm delighted to have written something you find worth a look.

I assumed logic of energy consumption especially after they almost destroyed planet in war was the reason given that ancient Vulcans enjoyed meat and killing each other. But perhaps with the mind controlled by Surakian philosophy they had time to really focus on what actually killing did.
Yes, the "logic of energy consummption" is another good reason for Vulcan vegetarianism, especially on a planet that's mostly desert -- you get a lot more calories into the people if you feed them plants directly than if you run those plants through another animal first.
As for the ancient Vulcans, in order to kill one another with a fervor that Spock calls "savage, even by Earth standards" (in "Balance of Terror"), I figure they must have glorified being able to feel the death of another creature (since we know they DO feel one another's death from Spock's reaction in "The Immunity Syndrome"). But I'd think they'd have to be brainwashed by a brutal culture in order to do that, and once their culture became less brutal, then there'd be some natural consequences, of which vegetarianism would be one.
