Holiday

“Let’s…” Jim says as they walk across campus.

“Let’s what?” Bones asks. It’s fucking cold out. He worked a double last night and all he wants to do is lie in bed, with a pillow over his ears to muffle the sounds of cadets partying on his floor. His New Year’s plans didn’t include following Jim Kirk around campus. 

Jim pauses and Bones walks a few feet before realizing Jim even stopped. He wants to yell at the kid, tell him to fuck off and head back to the warm dorm room, but he’s got such an expression on his face that Bones can’t help but turn back toward him. 

“If all you want is company for getting turned down by Uhura yet again, you can consider the packed bar as-” Bones starts to say but Jim grabs at Bones’ jacket and pulls him in. 

He’s too surprised at Jim’s lips on his, salty and soft, at the way his own mouth opens automatically for the other man’s. His mind stutters for a moment. 

Jim pulls away, a softer version of his usual grin acting like a punctuation mark to what just happened. “Let’s start this year off right.”

Bones’ flirting needs a lot of work

(so does Jim’s)

i would say ‘i’m dying’ but then bones would chase me down with a hypo and a lecture about ridiculous slang

Jim: Yeah, well, you can’t spell…um….uh…….hang on………

Bones: You can’t spell for shit because your proclivity for severe head trauma has wreaked havoc on the language centers in your brain.

Jim: Mean. 🙁

Bones: Can’t spell mean without “me,” kid.

Can’t spell “Bones” without owns…

Oh, wait

Do you think that Bones ever had personal problems after bringing Jim back from the dead? [I.E.: Feeling guilty over choosing to bring Jim back and not other patients he had lost, him worrying about verging onto obsession because he realized he couldn't live without Jim, what he would have done with himself if he couldn't have saved Jim, his feelings on breaking the Hippocratic Oath (?) and pretending to play God?]

Hmm, yes and no. In pverse at least, he deals with some of these ugly emotional issues in the time between Jim’s death and the awakening we see in ST:ID a couple weeks later. I’m writing a whole fic about that, so I won’t delve too deeply into the details here.

You’re asking about after, though, and my answer to that is mostly no. It’s a hard road, but after Jim is back at full health and the two of them have hashed out their interpersonal mess, Leonard doesn’t really lose much sleep over what he’s done. The ends fully justify the means for him.

The thing is, I know this idea is irreversibly baked into McKirk fanon (and I’ve alluded to it myself in my own writing), but I’m not so sure Leonard would actually view his actions in retrospect as having broken his oath by “playing at God.” That’s a hazy concept, usually more concerned with ending life than prolonging it, and moreover perspectives on these things change as technology and medical ethics evolve. Centuries ago, people would’ve considered a lot of the treatments we have now as playing at God; that doesn’t mean they’re not widely considered today to be ethically sound and part of our responsibility to do our best for the patient as long as it’s not causing them undue suffering which outweighs the benefit. And the medicine Leonard practices is two full centuries ahead of ours! Who knows how much the needle has shifted in that time?

Ultimately, I think Leonard does struggle with the potential consequences of his actions while he’s still waiting for the end result, but once it’s confirmed that Jim is in fact perfectly healthy and himself and isn’t suffering as a result of Leonard’s intervention, he’s off the moral hook. Don’t get me wrong, I love emotionally torturing poor Bones as much as the next writer, but my man had a hard enough time while Jim was dead/comatose. Let’s cut him some slack in the post-game.
