“Dammit Jim! I’m a doctor not some kind of stuffed toy”
At a peacekeeping meal Jim drinks one of the traditional drinks which turns out to cause people to drop all inhibitions when they’re around the person they’re interested in.
Like in a forever and ever kind of interested. Which totally ruins Kirks plan to never acknowledge the giant torch he’s been carrying for his CMO. he’s been so busy repressing that he didn’t spot that the feelings were reciprocated.
Imagine Bones just knocking Jim out with a hypo - Kirk flopping back on the bed with a smile on his face And Bones is still holding the hypo up like D: ‘WTF JUST HAPPENED’ Maybe he growled 'not like this’ And then he tried to avoid Jim like the plague after Until Jim cornered him. And pushed him up against the door of his office and Bones is all 'Jim, look Im sorry’ For taking advantage And Jim is like 'well i’m sorry too’ 'What are you sorry for??’ 'For this.’ And he presses up against him and kisses him thoroughly
James T. Kirk is not your Everyman. He’s not your own self-insert male power fantasy. He’s not your generic heterosexual protagonist who’s “too cool to care” about the rules and regulations that come with his high-risk/high-responsibility job. He’s not your depthless heroic leading man who sees women as commodities and kills his enemies without a second thought.
James T. Kirk is the embodiment of optimism for the future. He’s proof that if people could be a bit kinder, a bit softer, a bit more careful with how they treat others, that the world may one day end up churning out a man like him. He’s been through horrible, unspeakable things in his life, and he survived through it all to become the well-rounded, multi-layered, compassionate character you refuse to actually see and understand. He isn’t someone who acts on impulse due to a lack of care or regard for consequences—in fact, that couldn’t be further form the truth. When he does act on impulse, it’s because he cares too much. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and he isn’t afraid to show the ones he loves that he really is with them till the ends of the universe. That’s a promise to them that he could never break, because he is—above all else—a man of his own word.
James T. Kirk wasn’t designed to be relatable. He was designed to be inspirational.
