|Kirk/Spock: Pon Farr and Kun-Ut Kali-Fi

I'm trying to find a story where Spock is kind-of-sort-of bonded to Kirk, and when he starts to go into Pon Farr he alerts Kirk as to the fact that he is going to need to mate with Kirk. Kirk, who is not in an established relationship with Spock, panics.|
Not realizing the full extent of the Kun-Ut Kali-Fi (particularly that it's a fight to the DEATH) due to minimal hacking and research, he triggers the Kun-Ut Kali-Fi and names himself as the challenger. Spock has a brief mental/emotional breakdown as he fights between the urges to keep his mate safe and to tear to shreds the one who would challenge his bond, during which Kirk gets increasingly confused, before he decides that the only solution to the dilemma is to get himself as far from Kirk as possible and allow the Pon Farr to kill him. This is the part where he maroons himself on an ice planet. (I think it might have been Delta Vega again?)
I'm pretty sure this is XI 'verse because there's a scene with some human traffickers/slavers where they discuss the fact that Vulcans are now endangered species and worth a crap-ton of money on the black market, and I know it came out before Into Darkness, but I cannot for the life of me find it again. Help?
