oct 13- chastity devices (no sex, it’s a vague interpretation)

Leonard was resolutely ignoring the gaze forming a black hole in the side of his head.

He wouldn’t give Christine the satisfaction.

She didn’t let the lack of response stop her.

“A bit funny, really, how something showing off all the assets makes it nearly impossible to get to the… assets.”

Leonard didn’t think it was funny at all.

“That fountain you fell in could be a new cautionary tale for oversexed cadets. The fabric shrinking properties are exceptional.”

The unmarked fountain was a trap waiting for unsuspecting passerby’s to be killed via cut off circulation. Especially those unfortunate enough to have an acquaintance like Jim who thinks it’s a perfectly sound idea to try to hold his friend’s (lover’s???) hand while on an away mission where anyone could see them and then do nothing to stop them when they jump at the unexpected contact and topple over the ridiculously low ledge into the extremely dangerous fountain.

At least only Jim’s left sleeve got wet.

Somehow that didn’t stop the rest of his shirt from being cut off.

The series of small marks along his collarbone had been well hidden by said shirt.

The ones Leonard put there last night.

And now were on full display of all his staff.

Contributing to most of the glint in Christine’s eyes.

The increased heart rate wasn’t helping the lack of proper circulation in the lower half of his body.

Thankfully, he was saved by Geoffrey coming back over with a new array of tools in the attempt to free Leonard from his trousers while not peeling back his skin in the process.

Later, Leonard was resting in the biobed, covered now in the regen mesh up to his waist to counteract the fountain chemicals’ reaction to Starfleet medical salves.

“Hey.” Leonard turned his head and saw Jim standing just out of arm’s reach now dressed in a medical scrub shirt.

“Hey, yourself.” Leonard noticed the tension in Jim’s frame, tension that had nothing to do with the bandage still wrapped on his forearm.

I’ve been an idiot.

“I’ve been an idiot.”
That wasn’t what Jim had expected, his head snapped back to Leonard’s face from where he had been gazing at the mesh.

“What?” Leonard hated how timid Jim sounded.

“C’mere, please.” Leonard lifted his hand Jim stepped towards him after a few second pause. Jim slid his hand into Leonard’s offered palm.

“I overreacted and hurt your feelings, I’m sorry.”

“Bones, I shouldn’t have-“

“I’m happy to be yours, darlin’,” Leonard moved their joined hands towards his mouth, kissing the back of Jim’s hand.

Jim’s ears went a wonderful shade of pink.

Star Trek Beyond is a bonafied Wholesome movie for a lot of reasons, but my favorite is that in a lot of ways it’s a response to the Motion Picture. it takes every depressing aspect from tmp (Jim joining the admiralty; Spock fleeing to Vulcan; the crew becoming scattered) and provides an answer. aos Jim realizes his best destiny is still to be captain of the Enterprise and decides not to join the admiralty. aos Spock considers fleeing to New Vulcan (not to Gol and not for kolinahr, but he’s fleeing all the same) but decides to stay as soon as he hears Jim say “What would i do without you, Spock?” the final shot is the crew standing together looking at the Enterprise, a visual promise that they’re still a family and not a group of friends who are about to scatter and become strangers to each other. 

i see a lot of depressing post-Beyond fics. a lot of world-weary, friends-becoming-strange, losing-faith-in-Starfleet-ideals kinda vibes. which is fine because we all need a healthy dose of melancholy now and then. but those kids are like. thirty at the most. they’ve lived darker lives than their tos counterparts. they’ve lost more and fought harder. 

i won’t be very surprised if Beyond is the last movie featuring that cast. but, as an ending, it’s satisfying. it corrects the mistakes of their tos counterparts. and if their timeline has so far been darker, here’s a chance to make it brighter. they fought tooth and nail for their “first, best destiny,” and in the end they choose to stay together. they choose to keep going on silly space adventures, even if we won’t get to see them.

I think the true piece of disaster aversion is that we see Bones wearing the necklace but refraining from the temptation to become a wildly unshaven Disco Hippie. (Luckily, this Jim seems to realize that you won’t have to forcibly unretire Bones if you don’t let him retire in the first place.)

oct 12- pillow biting

“Don’t you dare say werewolf.”

“I wasn’t-“

“Jim.”

“The resemblance to the descriptions written by Herodotus is remarkable.”

Spock.”

A loud howl near their hiding spot in the low tree alcove (“If anyone calls this a den I’m booting you out there”) ceased the conversation.

About an hour later and the howls were faint and only occasionally heard from a long ways off. In the woods. That they were now hiding in.

“Right, well, since we’re not going anywhere anytime soon, we better try to get some rest. Who wants first watch?” Jim’s voice was barely louder than a whisper.

Sulu and Lt. Jenkins raised their hands. With a nod back, Jim pointed to each of the remaining crew to quickly dole out the other shifts.

Leonard resigned himself to another night of paltry sleep.

He found a space nestled between two roots and cleared out a spot to lay down.

Jim made his way over, taking off his jacket, much to Leonard’s alarm. It wasn’t warm out. At the raised eyebrow, Jim balled up the jacket and tugged at Leonard’s.

Body heat, Jim silently mouthed.

Leonard took off his jacket and laid down with part of his head on Jim’s jacket with his own draped over them. Jim didn’t put his head down next to Leonard’s, rather, he used Leonard’s shoulder as his pillow, arm snaking over Leonard’s chest.

Jim met Leonard’s glare with a smirk and pulled the ‘blanket’ up to his ears. Leonard rolled his eyes and repositioned his head in an attempt to find some comfort in the makeshift pillow.

It was either the astonishingly soft needles on the ground or Jim’s comforting warm presence next to him (or the fact he wasn’t sleeping on a goddamn pallet anymore) but next thing he knew, Jim was shaking him awake.

Leonard got up and put his jacket back on, blearily watching as Jim checked in with Spock.

He went over and sat next to Jim at the ‘entrance’ to their hideout. He handed over the jacket and Jim gratefully put it on. Jim then proceeded to resume a similar position and laid his head back onto Leonard’s shoulder.

Leonard didn’t bother shaking him off.

Jim eventually started tracing patterns on Leonard’s thigh.

Leonard didn’t bother stopping him.

Approximately an hour later, once the sun had begun turning the inky sky a deep blue streaked with red, Jim inhaled sharply and bit down on Leonard’s shoulder.

Leonard jumped at the unexpected gesture, turning quickly to see what was wrong with Jim.

“Calf. Cramp. Sorry.” Jim’s face was scrunched up.

Leonard’s heartbeat slowed down and he whispered for Jim to stay still. He knelt and began massaging the leg Jim had propped at an odd angle.

Jim’s stayed completely still until the last bit of tension eased out. He then leaned back and stretched the leg out on his own.

Leonard, with one knee cracking with the change of position, sat down on the stump. Jim leaned over, knocking their knees together.

“Thanks.”

Leonard didn’t respond, no use complaining about how Jim should watch where he puts his limbs. Especially since Leonard usually benefited one way or another.

“We’ll wake everyone up once it gets a bit lighter, the locals shouldn’t be werewolves anymore.”

Jim’s subsequent yelp sounded nothing like a howl.
