a proper post is coming later tonight

Upside Down (part 7)

Intro: Just a little extra scene for your enjoyment - I hope you liked the series!

I am astonished and so grateful for the response on this fic.  It was so fun to write and I am now much deeper (if possible) in the Scotty trashcan than before.  I love writing him and there will definitely not be a lack of Scotty fics in the near future.  I will be doing some Scotty character analysis for a certain follower milestone, but I will be posting that after I finish writing all my drabbles (I have about 5 left).  

I will also be posting the full fic, from beginning to end, later tonight, as well as updating my masterlist (I hope).

You guys are amazing, thank you so much.  :D

Pairing: Scotty x reader (and best friend!Jim Kirk)

Word Count: 801

Warnings: totally 100% fake engineering everything, (I was too lazy to actually come up with proper terms so I just made up words), eventual injury, swears.

Summary: So basically the starting point for this fic was Scotty x reader who loves engineering as much as he does.  So that’s where I went with this fic.  You are second-in-command engineer and Scotty one day ends up being in charge, much to your chagrin.  You butt heads.  Scotty gets hurt.  Feelings get hurt (mostly my own).  Welcome to my trashcan


All crew to report to the mess hall. 

“Lassie, we really should… mhm.. go.” Scotty said across your lips, and you pulled him tighter against you, digging your hands into his hair. 

“You really want to go, now?” You raised your eyebrow and pulled back, Scotty’s lips barely an inch from yours, both breathing hard, his eyes filled with longing. 

As a response, he covered your mouth with his firmly, pressing your back against the wall, drawing you deeper into an electric kiss.  

All crew to report to the mess hall. 

“Damnit.” You grumbled and broke the kiss, heat curling over your body, sparks spreading over your skin where Scotty dragged his hands along your sides.  

Scotty, the usually composed one, looked as dizzy as you felt from that kiss, and he kept you pressed against the wall. 

“As much as I would love to stay here and continue our… activities… we better go.” You pressed a kiss to the corner of his mouth, and he tried to chase your lips with his.  

“No, no, Mr. Scott, duty calls.” You pressed a finger to his lips and he shook his head at you, giving your sides a squeeze. 

“I told you not to call me that.” Scotty growled, low and gravely, eliciting another shot of heat low in your belly. 

“What’re you gonna do?  Punish me?” You smirked playfully, drawing your tongue over your teeth, and Scotty shook his head and suddenly snapped your hands up and pinned them against the wall, before diving into another heated kiss. 

Last Call: All crew report to the mess hall.

“Alright, we better go.” Scotty breathed along your cheek, and released your hands. 

“To be continued.” You pressed a quick kiss to his lips and took his hand, leading him towards the mess hall. 

“Did we miss anything?” You whispered as you drew up next to Jim, Scotty following close behind, hand still connected to yours.   

“Nah, he’s just going on about some new medical procedure.”  Jim whispered and you rolled your eyes, “Should I reprimand you for being late?”

“Probably.” You winked and turned to Dr. McCoy, who stood at the front of the room, already deep into some speech, and you quickly zoned out.  

This was your usual posture during meetings, hands connected, paying some or a little attention to what was being said, mostly happy just to be next to each other. 

“Hey.” You hissed, and pulled on your connected hands, Scotty tilting his head down so his head was closer to yours, “I think we forgot to turn off the fragment generator." 

"I turned it off, dontcha worry, darling.” Scotty smirked and pulled his head away. 

After a few seconds, you pulled on Scotty’s hand again. 

“What can I help ya with now, lass.” Scotty said, amusement making the corner of his lips turn up. 

“Can we replicate some pizza later?  I’m feeling pizza for dinner.”


“And can we watch a movie?  I’ll let you pick this time.” You batted your eyelashes up at him. 

“You always say that, yet it never happens, now shush.” Scotty teased, tucking your conjoined hands into his pocket, which made you smile. 

“You guys make me want to vomit." 

You turned, raising your eyebrow curiously to see Jim standing just behind you, a look of disgust on his face. 

"You wish you were us.” You teased and Jim huffed, dropping his eyes, but you caught the smile that crept onto his lips. 

“… lead by our two best engineers, Scotty and Y/N.  Nice of you to join us.”

You snapped your head forward, locking eyes with Dr. McCoy and pretty much everyone else on the crew who had turned to look at you and Scotty. 

“You do agree with the premise of the project, don’t you?” Dr. McCoy looked very unamused. 

“Of course, Doc, we’re all for it.” You called and threw up a thumbs up, which elicited a few giggles throughout the crowd. 

“Great, so I will see you two in my office after this meeting and we can discuss details.” Dr. McCoy nodded and turned back to the rest of the crew, continuing his speech. 

“We are in so much trouble.” You giggled, pressing your cheek into Scotty’s shoulder. 

“Yeah, well at least we’re in trouble together.” Scotty squeezed your hand. 

You turned back to Dr. McCoy’s speech, resting your head on Scotty’s shoulder, knowing that whatever crazy adventure was ahead of you, you could count on Scotty to be by your side.
