gr: tv: bones

For @ruinsrebuilt (and 3 anons), who asked for McKirk for the OTP questions. 

1. Who takes the trash out?

I mean, they live on the Enterprise. Probably neither of them, but I guess Bones would be more likely to take the trash into the hallway trash compactor.


2. Who reminds the other to take care of themselves?

Surprisingly, probably Jim. Bones spends so much time looking after others, he doesn’t always remember to look after himself. Then it’s Jim who steps up and reminds Bones to take it easy, to go to bed on time, and to drink enough water.


3. Who is happier when they are out in nature?

Jim, when they’re out in nature on some foreign planet. He likes exploring, after all. I can imagine Bones likes the concept of camping in the woods; a cabin, beer, fishing at the lake. But Bones would be bored and restless after five minutes.


4. Do they like to go in the hot tub together?

Who doesn’t? They sure do. But I imagine the one on the Enterprise is usually not private for very long, and there’s others who join in.


5. Do either of them avidly follow a celebrity and/or fandom?

Jim would probably be a big fan of Star Wars. Both the oldies and the 23rd century reboots. Follows the actors and speculates how realistic it is or isn’t. Bones likes the classic movies, and the fandoms, much like the actors, are probably dead.


6. Who builds a pillow fort?

Joanna. But that’s not to say they don’t use it when she’s in bed 😏


7. Who plans the romantic date?

Bones plans the romantic ones. Jim the ones that are eventful, just not necessarily the way he planned it out. But Bones is picnics and leisurely strolls, a quiet bar or a midnight swim. Neither of them do fancy restaurants very well, though.


8. Who likes to play with the other’s hair?

Definitely Bones. It’s James T. Perfect-Hair, after all.


9. Who calms the other down when the other has a nightmare?

Bones. He’s trained for that sort of thing. Probably he’s already woken up from Jim having a nightmare before Jim is, himself.


10. Who wants their dog to sleep on the bed with them?

Probably neither? But Jim would be the quickest to give in to that sort of thing. Or so Bones says, but he’s probably no better.


11. Who can’t sleep without the other?
Definitely Jim.


12. Who is too nice and will listen to a sales person pitch?

Also Jim. Listens to the full thing, enjoys that flirty, flattering thing sales people do. Probably won’t buy any subscriptions or whatever, but if it’s a one time sale, he’ll 100% fall for it.


13. Who makes the first move to cuddle?

It varies. I think Jim initiates it more, but Bones does it without thinking.


14. What is their go to fast food place?

In York Town; any place that serves real BBQ or pizza/burgers. On Earth; McDonald’s, and on New Vulcan; that one place that’s not strictly vegetarian even if it’s bland as hell and under-seasoned, but damn, even the coffee tastes like dishwater.


15. Who likes to wear the other’s sweaters?

Bones, but mostly because Jim owns loads of sweaters and hoodies and leaves them on the couch or close to bed instead of the wardrobe where they should be.

I need a favor from some of you fellow Star Trek fans

I’m thinking about making fun little animations shorts of Spock/Bones/Kirk in situations that some people like to put them in, and I need to make a 3D model of them, so I need a reference to model from but I can’t…draw. So I’m asking if anyone out there can do a lil concept of the three and send it to my inbox? 

Preferably ‘cute’ and cartoony in style, and they should be drawn in a “T” position (arms out wide legs straight). 

I’ll credit you of course when I’ve hopefully made them :D Thank you
