Review:  "There are many alternate destinies. Yet out of the infinitely diverse destinies of Leonard McCoy and James Kirk, this is the one that lives to be told."  Or, McCoy gets a gift from a dying patient - the ability to see, three times only, the ruthlessness of probability.

I love this short fic to bits - appropriately, since it makes me feel like my heart is breaking along with Bones'.  Aya ties the "gift" into canon in a way that makes sense; it handily explains why Bones would mention his ex-wife in the Reboot-movie but not his daughter, and it makes his relationship with Jim more poignant (well, is there a better word for having watched a thousand versions of your best friend and lover die on your operating table?).  Rest assured, guys, this is a bittersweet but happy ending... just consider having a tissue box available.
