Musings And Fears

Bones, Jim (because McCoy and Kirk seems way too formal)

Summary: For someone who seems so outgoing, Jim doesn’t really have a lot of friends. Bones notices this and decides to try to figure out why.

A/N: My first ever Star Trek fic and I totally blame @baneberrydragon and @ruxiecat121 for this. Also, imagine my surprise when @thatkourtnichik wrote a Jim and Bones fic while I was working on my own. It was as if we were connected or something.

This is my first fic of 2016 and I hope you all like it!
