Warmups inspired by The Button by @distractedkat. Please go read it - it has magic, wee Spirk mind melds, Academy Era Spirk, and Chekov the baby vampire. Jim makes him a parasol to keep safe. No really.
Part 2!!! Sorry it took me so long!! Hope you like it!
Everyone adores Jim, just like you expected them too. You
had dressed him in a miniature version of his regular uniform, and several
ensigns had cooed at him as you walked.
“What do you want to eat, sweetheart?”
He looked up at you in shock, “I can pick?”
“Of course you can pick! If you are good, and eat
everything, I might be able to convince Bones to let us have some ice cream”
Jim’s eyes practically sparkled at the mention of ice cream,
“Can I have spaghetti, please?”
“Such good manners! Of course you can have some spaghetti!”
You plug the order into the replicator, making sure the
portion is child sized, “Do you want a meat ball?”
Jim gapped at you, “I can have spaghetti and a meatball?
Frank never lets me have that!”
You can feel your hatred for Frank almost double. You could
tell by the look on Jim’s face that Frank had taken away food as a punishment.
That was probably one of the reasons why Jim was so skinny.
“Of course you can have a meatball. What kind of juice would
Jim looked like he was about to cry over to prospect of
getting juice, immediately you crouch down, “What’s the matter? Did I say
something to upset you?”
Jim just sniffled and whipped his eyes. He then flung his
arms around your neck, hugging you as tightly as his little body could, “You’re
the best, Y/N! You’re the nicest grown-up ever!”
Tears build up in your own eyes at the thought that Jim had
never experienced kindness as a child that people had only ever been cruel to
him, and he had still turned out to be a ray of sunshine, “Thank you, Jimmy.
Now let’s yet the food to the table before it gets cold, okay?”
“I can help carry it. And … can I have apple juice?”
You smile, “Of course you can, sweetheart”
Once you get back to the table, most of the command crew is
already there. Sulu and Chekov are updating Spock on everything that had
happened while he was searching for a cure for Jim. Uhura was still down on the
plant and had sent a message saying that she would be spending the night down
there. Scotty was talking animatedly about one of the engineers setting a
console on fire while they were trying to fix some wiring.
“Hey Y/N” several people chorused
“This is Jimmy, he’s going to be joining us”
Chekov was the first one to greet their tiny captain,
“Hello! My name iz Pavel Chekov. You can call me Pavel”
“H-hello, Pavel” Jim stuttered, blushing under everyone’s
“It’s alright, lad. No need t’ be nervous. I’m Scotty”
“I’m Sulu. He’s right, we just want to get to know you, Jim”
“My name’s Jimmy, not Jim, Mr. Sulu. Only teachers call me
Jim” The little boy informed the helmsman before he dug into his dinner. You
try to hide a smile behind your glass, but you can tell by the look that Len
gives you that you aren’t very successful.
“Now that you are here, I would like to know when you intend
to inform Starfleet of the Captain’s predicament” Spock said turning to face
“I had no intention of informing Starfleet until after you
had a definite answer on whether or not this can be reversed” Your voice is
cool, daring one of the others to challenge your decision
Spock nodded, “I had assumed that would be your answer and
proceeded to inform Starfleet and Winona Kirk of the situation”
Everyone around you freezes, Bones turns to look at Spock, “Are
you out of your Vulcan mind?!?”
“I can assure you doctor …”
“You told him mother that he was a child again!! You idiot!
I can’t believe you! You know what she put him through, and you are just going
to hand him back to her!?!”
“Jim’s mother has the right to know what has occurred here”
Spock snapped, his face was still blank, but you could see that he was angry.
“You and your damn regulations” you snarl, “You did this to
him once too! Following your regulations you got his ship taken away from him,
and now Starfleet is going to try and take him away from us again!”
“STOP!!” Jimmy shout, “Stop fighting!!”
You turn to look at the four year old, but he has already
jumped up from the table and sprinted out of the mess hall.
“Len, we have to find him. He could get lot on the ship!”
“Y/N calm down, darlin’”
You whip back around, looking first at Spock and then at
your husband, “I was serious before. I will fight them for custody of Jim, and
I will leave Starfleet if I have too”
“Y/N no …”
You glance over at Pavel, “I’m sorry, sweetheart. I won’t
let him go back to Frank, I have to take care of him. You all would be fine
without me anyway”
“McCoy would kill us! He would hypo us to death! He wouldn’t
have Jim to hypo anymore and he would turn on the rest of us!!” Sulu joked
You chuckle softly and turn back to Leonard, “I’m going to
go look for him. See if I can talk to him about what’s going to happen”
Len nodded, gently pulling you into a quick kiss, “Go get
You quickly wave at everyone before leaving, throwing one
last glare at Spock before you turn around and begin your search.
You eventually find Jim in Sickbay, surprisingly. He is
curled up under the bio bed in the far corner with a nest of blankets and gowns
as padding against the cold floor. You crouch down quietly, the two of you just
watching each other, until finally Jim holds his arms out for you to pick him
You gently set Jim on your hip, “I’m sorry for yelling,
Jim nuzzles into your shoulder, leaning his forehead against
the side of your neck, “I don’t like t when you yell, it’s scary. Your scary
when you’re angry, Y/N”
“I know, and I really didn’t mean to scare you so much.
Spock did something really stupid, and it made me really angry”
“If you were angry, why didn’t you hit him? Frank hits me
whenever he gets angry”
“It makes you a bad person if you hit someone while you are
angry. It makes you no better than the bad guys that we fight. The only time it
is okay to hit someone is if you are protecting yourself. Okay?”
Jim nodded quietly, “okay. ‘m really sleepy now. Can I go to
“Sure, Jimmy. You get to stay in my quarters tonight”
Jim pulled back and looked at you, “What about Bones?”
“He is going to stay there too!”
Jim seemed pleased with your answer and let you carry him to
the Command Deck, where your room was. Len was already there, and he had
replicated a child’s bed and set it up in their spare room. The two rooms
shared a bathroom, so people could walk form your room, through the bathroom,
and into Jim’s new room. You and Len would replicate more furniture and toys
for Jim tomorrow, but for now everyone was exhausted.
“I can sleep in here?”
“Yes Jimmy. This is your new bed, and your new room. If you
need us all you have to do is walk through the bathroom and you will be in our
Jim nods sleepily. You help him get dressed in his pajamas
and you lay him in bed. He is asleep before his head even touches the pillow.
You and Len walk back into your room, change, and instantly
fall asleep as well.
You wake up when you hear the bathroom door swish open. Jim
is standing there, rubbing as his eyes.
“Jimmy? Are you alright?”
Jim sniffles softly, “I had a nightmare, ‘bout Frank”
You coo softly, “Come here, honey. You can sleep with me and
Len grunted softly when he felt Jim crawl over him. Jim
hesitantly settled between the two of you, cuddling into your chest. “I can
“Yeah, Jimmy. You can sleep here. Tomorrow I would like you
to tell me about your dream, but for now we can just go to sleep. How does that
“Good” Jim mumbled sleepily, “Night, Y/N, night Bones”
Len puts his arm oven Jim, curling his fingers into your
hip, cocooning the child in both of your arms. You know that Len will help you
fight for Jim, you know that if it were up to the two of you, Jim would never
even mention Frank again. But for now all you can do is provide comfort to the
child, you can give him the love that he deserves.
“Good night, boys”
Your boys, your husband and now someone who could call your
son. You will do anything to keep them safe. Winona and Starfleet will have to
get through you if they even want a chance at touching Jim.
So it’s kinda short, and kinda lame, but I was a little rushed! So sorry in advance!
It’s Jimmy’s first
Christmas on the Enterprise and you want it to be special. With the help of the
rest of the Command crew you decorate Observation room #2 for a surprise
Christmas party while Jimmy is in his tutoring session with Spock.
“We need more tinsel on
the tree guys!!”
Arms wrap round your
waist, “Calm down darlin’. Everything’s gonna be perfect, there’s no reason for
you to be runnin’ ‘round like a chicken with your head cut off!”
You lean back into your
husband, “I just want everything to be perfect, Len. He’s never had a real
“Well, Spock just commed
me, they are on their way down now, so quite your fussin’ and put your hat on”
Grumbling your put on
the reindeer antlers that Jimmy had picked out for you, “Your hat’s crooked,
Len batted your hands
away, “Leave me be, woman! Look Pasha is having trouble putting on his elf hat,
go help him”
Waving your hand, you
make your way across the room, “Hey, Pasha. Hey, Pasha. You look like you could
use some help”
“Zat vould be much
You reach out, smoothing
down is curls slightly before putting the hat on him. You have to use a bobby
pin to make sure the hat didn’t fall of his curly head.
“There! All fixed!” You
glance at your watch, “Come on everyone, lets hide before he gets here!”
Once everyone is in
position all you have to do is wait for Spock and Jim to walk through the door.
Two minutes later you can hear your sons voice, “Uncle Spock, why are we going
here? I want to see mommy and daddy”
“You will see your
parents in a moment, Jim. First we must go to the Observation room”
Maybe you should have
picked someone else to bring Jim here. As Spock likes to remind you, Vulcan’s
As soon as the door
swishes open, the Christmas tree lights up and everyone jumps out from their
hiding place, shouting “Merry Christmas!!”
Jim’s eyes go wide, his
face breaking into a delighted grin. He immediately caught sight of you and ran
forward, flinging himself into a hug, “A Christmas party? For me?”
“Yeah, baby, for you. I
know you didn’t get to have Christmas parties when you lived on Earth, so we
decided to have one on the Enterprise.”
He looked at you with
wide blue eyes, “Mommy … do-do I get a present?”
“You get lots of
presents, sweetheart. Look under the tree” underneath the tree is overflowing
with presents, many of them for the crews former Captain.
Upon seeing that several
gifts had his name on them, Jim started to cry. He went around to each and
every person, giving them hugs and thanking them.
When it was time to open
presents Jim seemed to hesitate. He looked like he didn’t know what to do with
so many options, so you reached out and placed a present in his lap.
“Can I open it?”
“Yes you can”
“Who’s it from”
Nyota stepped forward, “That
one is from me and your Uncle Spock, Jimmy”
Tearing into the paper,
Jim pulled out hand painted planets, “Those are the founding planets of the
Federation, Jim. They are meant to be hung on the ceiling, and they have the
ability to glow in the dark.”
Jim jumped up, tackling
both of them into a hug, “Thank you, Auntie Ny, thank you, Uncle Spock”
Nyota reached down,
squeezing Jim tightly, “You’re welcome, Jimmy” she glanced up “It looks like
Uncle Scotty has your next gift”
Jim grinned and ran over
to Scotty, who scooped the boy up and had him open the present in his lap.
Scotty had made a perfect replication of the USS Enterprise, the toy even had
the ability to fly with a remote control that was modeled after the helmsman
Sulu gave Jim a plant
that would sing him lullabies, Pavel got him a new PADD, Len got him a doctor’s
kit, and you had gotten him a book of planets and several star maps.
Jim couldn’t have been
happier. Several crew members had worked together to create a Captain’s
Assistant uniform for Jim, so he looked like he was on duty. Jim had immediately
put it on, and started flying his model Enterprise around the room.
Several hours later,
close to midnight, Jim finally crashes. Everyone quietly ushers you, Len, and
Jim out of the room, telling you that they will clean everything up.
“Wake up, Jimmy. You
have to get ready for bed”
Jim just mumbled something
into your shoulder.
“What was that?”
“This was the best
Christmas ever. I love you, mommy, love you, daddy”
“We love you too, Jimmy”
“’m really glad that I
got to stay with you”
“We are too” you whisper,
kissing the top of his head
Jim sits back, looking
at you with sleepy eyes, “I didn’t get you anything for Christmas”
“You did though, you
gave us you. You’re our son, Jimmy. The greatest gift you could ever give the
two of us is your love.”
He nodded sleepily, and
now that he was in pajamas, you tucked him into bed and both you and Len
quietly take your leave.
” I’m really glad we did
“I am too Len. He was so
happy, and it made me happy to see him actually enjoying his childhood”
Len spins you around
gently, pulling you forward by your hips, “Merry Christmas, Y/N”
