Insurgency - Part Seven  

A few days later Leonard walks the corridors again, without a real destination, only to see where he ends up this time. As his karma has it, it’s the observatory deck. He almost leaves again, his stomach already protesting, when he hears a voice.

“Hey Bones. Come here. I wanna show you something.”

Leonard swallows and steps next to Jim, his eyes fixed to the ground.

He can feel fingers under his chin, a thumb gently stroking up and down.

“Hey. It’s okay. You’re fine.”

Leonard swallows, braces himself, and looks up. Blackness spreads out around him, vast and endless, and he can feel his panic rise, his breath coming short and fast. Then Jim’s hand is in his, squeezing, holding tight.

“This is safe. You are safe.”

“Sure. And one tiny crack in the hull, and our blood boils in thirteen seconds.”

Out of the corner of his eye he can see Jim shake his head.

“You sneak onboard a Starfleet ship, kill people and rescue me, all in space, and you’re afraid of dying because of a crack in the hull of this ship?”

“I can’t help my irrational fears, Jim.”

“But you’re still staying?”

He can hear Jim’s fear in the question, and he turns to look at him, squeezing his hand in return. “Under one condition.”

“And that would be?”

“Next time we hit a planet, you get me knitting needles. And yarn.”

Jim looks at him with an amused expression. “All the yarn in the galaxy, Bones.”

Leonard grins as Jim draws him close, starts to kiss him slowly. For now, he could really get used to this.

If he doesn’t look out of the windows.

~The End~

Oh myyyyyyyy!!! Since I don't have any self control whatsoever, I read the entire thing when I was actually supposed to do responsible adult stuff: this is your fault and you should feel bad about this. xD

Anyway, I love your story. It's a fun ride, like a summer cruise with lots of cheap booze. xD I've never seen Firefly so I'm pretty sure that a lot of the brilliant allusions went completely over my head but I loved the team dynamics nonetheless (Christiiiine and Scotty, oh my God, they deserve a spin off xD). I especially loved the darker tones in this one (ahahah it's mirrorverse, what darker tones, I must be delusional) what with Scotty gleefully stunning/killing people and Pavel's hopeless crush on Hikaru (dawww, babies) and ohh my god, of course Uhura and Spock stay together on the Empire's side... *v*

The plot was also very clever (cure for the common cold -> weapon of mass destruction, IS AN AWESOME IDEA) and fast paced and all shades of perfect. God, I loved the dark, accidentally-stabbing-his-crazy-wife-Bones, who then gets all flustered and fangirly about a stack of books. Fantastic <33

Great job, seriously. <3 (As is the mix and the fanart <3)

Responsible adult stuff is highly overrated ;)

Thank you so much for your feedback - makes my whole week ^^

So... jetzt denk ich auch endlich mal daran ein Kommentar zu hinterlassen. :)
Ich erwähnte schon, dass ich die Story liebe oder? Es hat unglaublich viel Spaß gemacht dein Cheerleader zu sein. Solltest du nochmal so ein Projekt starten, egal in welchem Fandom, die PomPoms hab ich noch im Schrank und kann sie jederzeit wieder rausholen. Just saying. ;)
Ich liebe die ganze Idee der Geschichte und ich hoffe sehr, dass wir mehr über Jim und Bones lesen. ^^ Ich liebe die kleinen Hints auf Hikaru und Pavel und Scotty ist einfach zu toll! :D
Ich freu mich schon mehr zu lesen. ^^
Auch der Mix und die Fanart sind großartig. :)

Ha, und ich hab mal dran gedacht, dir auch tatsächlich zu antworten *gg*

Du wirst bei dem Sequel schon genug PomPoms schwingen dürfen ^^

Danke <3 Freut mich echt zu wissen, dass wenigstens jemand die Story toll findet ;)

Nicht wahr? Ich bin so froh, dass Tresa eingesprungen ist - die Fanart ist awesome, und dieser Mix <3 (kannst du sie ja auch wissen lassen, ich glaub, das hört sie auch mal ganz gerne ^^)

Yay! Ich bin so stolz auf dich. ;)

Okay, dann pack ich die schonmal aus und halte sie bereit. ^^

Ich fand sie klasse! :) Ich hab sie schon zweimal gelesen seitdem du sie hochgeladen hast. :D

Das ist eigentlich eine gute Idee. Das sollte ich wirklich machen. :D
