What a wonderful, insightful story! You have such a way to make us love the reboot characters. It is so touching the way Jim instantly reacts to Spock's provocation but then without hesitation puts away his own pain (which there must be, given that what Spock had voiced was exactly on the line of Jim's own thoughts about his role in the Nero crisis) to be there for his grieving friend.
Yeah, I wanted Spock's cruel words to parallel Jim's feelings, because that would make him snap--which he did.

That was nicely done! The anniversary has to be a terrible day, not just for all Vulcans but for anyone with a soul, and it must be especially awful for Spock. I hope crying helped the poor guy.
What an interesting permutation of the healing trance, and how clever of you to foreshadow it by having McCoy suggest that Kirk let Spock beat HIM up. :-)
A typo you may want to fix: the entire planet honored those who were gone with moments of silent medication -- unless they're quietly taking drugs, you mean silent "mediTation." ;-)
Thanks for picking up on that--although the VUlcans probably needed medication (and a stiff drink), they'd probably think it's illogical
