Jim/Bones fic rec
The fic rec that’s been in the works for the last 1000 years is finally done. On the request of the anon and my own needs here’s my Jim/Bones fic rec.
”Leonard McCoy is thirty-one and he’s too fucking old to be anybody’s jealous boyfriend.”
I just love the way this fic deals with Bones’ perception of Jim’s new relationship with Spock. It is sweet and fluffy without going over-board.
When Leonard shows up at Starfleet Academy, he wonders just how drunk he was when he met with the recruiter. He has no friends, misses his kid, and if drowning his sorrows doesn’t kill him, PT will. Then he meets Jim Kirk again.
This fic is a perfect insight into the beginning of their relationship, how it all started and hints at the direction it will take, making you crave more. The best thing about it is how real it is; Bones’ hopelessness at the beginning is tackled perfectly and Jim is spot on particularly at the end.
bones grumbling shakily to himself, leg and ribs broken as he drags kirk’s battered bleeding body along beside him with a strength born of desperation and tears streaking through the grime on his face (though he would never admit it because why would he ever cry over such an idiot)
“dammit, man, you’d better stay with me- i’m your doctor, and i’m sure as hell not gonna lose…”but the sentence goes unfinished as he collapses completely and falls unconscious (◡‿◡✿)
jim trying to joke to bones about his tummy-shyness and make out like it’s no big deal and bones seeing right through the facade, pushing him down on the bed and silently pressing little kisses and (not so little) bites from the bottom of his treasure trail up to his neck and earlobes so he can growl at him to shut up
Bones’ version of nicknames aren’t the same as other peoples version of nicknames.
On a good day, he’ll call you a bastard or damn fool.
So in the morning when Jim’s up and Bones is still lounging in bed, he’ll look over at Jim and say something like, “Well, are you just going to stand there or are you going to get me some coffee, you moron.”
And Jim will chuckle and get him a cup of coffee and tell him that “You know, you’re really bad a pet names.”
Which only makes Bones roll over and shove his face in his pillow mumbling something along the lines of “Jackass.”
But Jim knows he says it with love.
