AN2: So, umm, apparently my internal Bones has become a possessive bastard over the last couple days… I think it’s revenge for actually trying to write road trip fic from only Jim’s POV, I think my mental Bones has gotten jealous and a jealous Georgia boy is a dangerous thing. *nods sagely*

NB: The title is taken from CSN's Southern Cross, "...my love is an anchor tied to you; tied with a silver chain."


~~~~~~~~~


There were many things Dr. Leonard McCoy could and did find fascinating about one James Tiberius Kirk. He could have wondered at his ability to get into and, thankfully, out of the most drastic and often insane situations. He could have marvelled at the sheer magnitude of his reputation- sexual and otherwise. Or the way he refused to lose any of his crew for any reason- if there was a chance to save them, he’d take it. Or the way he laughed when Bones danced his hands over his right side just at the base of his ribcage. Or the little noise he made in his sleep whenever Bones had to leave their bed. But for some reason, some unfathomable reason, all he could think about right now was how hot Jim would look with a solid silver band around his wrist; nothing fancier than that, simple, elegant, no more than a centimetre wide, almost unnoticeable, and totally unnoteworthy to anyone who didn’t matter. But he’d know. The command crew would know. A thin silver band marking Jim as his.

He’d lavish attention on it as if it was simply another part of Jim that deserved his fullest affection. First he’d run the flat of his tongue over it, pressing the metal into Jim’s skin and tickling the taut flesh on either side with the swipe of his tongue. Then he’d lap softly along the edges, all the way around Jim’s wrist and back along the opposite side, stopping to suck gently on his pulse point. And at night, when they fell asleep tangled in each other, Bones’ fingers would wrap around the band and hold tight. He’d turn that small piece of metal into an impetus for everything that was them, and every time Jim’s wrist would move against it or Bones would idly brush his fingers across it, it would remind Jim of exactly what mattered and who he belonged to.

Bones squeezed the small package in his hand. They’d been together for four and a half years and never once had they marked any occasion between them- no birthdays or anniversaries or any of the myriad Yuletide-esque celebrations, nothing. There was never any need. They were them, pure and simple. But after four years as lovers and two as the closest of friends before, Bones needed, he wanted to scream to the world that James T. Kirk was his and his alone. So today, the one day he knew Jim would celebrate, the day Starfleet relaunched the Enterprise, the day he would follow Jim into the black for five years, today he would break their long-standing lack of tradition and mark the day and Jim in his own way.

Summary: He was brought up short, though, when someone asked about his love life. That was a question most often directed at Jim, or even Uhura or Chekov; it was not a question directed at the bitter divorcé from Georgia.

Press conferences had to be the absolute worst part of the job. At least that’s how Bones felt as he was paraded about like some bachelor for sale. Hell, being up in the black would be a welcome distraction from this hoopla. But he was part of the command crew of the Enterprise and being thrust into these situations came with the territory and he wouldn’t trade his job for the world, unless of course that world was Jim. That thought made him smile despite himself and he let that feeling take over- the giddiness and joy he still felt after all this time in knowing Jim was his and his alone.

With those thoughts in his head he happily answered question after question ranging from his favourite colour to his latest medical triumph. He was brought up short, though, when someone asked about his love life. That was a question most often directed at Jim, or even Uhura or Chekov; it was not a question directed at the bitter divorcé from Georgia. He looked out over the sea of reporters and paparazzi trying to weed out which one had asked such an infernal question ready to tell them it was none of their God damned, business, only to have the words die on his tongue. At the edge of the crowd, standing next to a young female reporter with dark chocolate hair and a sweet smile was Jim Kirk, pinning him with a look of such intensity it made his stomach flop.

“Well?” Jim asked. “Are you gonna answer the lady?” He turned to her, momentarily. “Krissy, is it?”

She nodded.

“Come on, Bones, Krissy here’s waiting for an answer.”

Years of keeping calm in more dire situations than this kept Bones’ jaw from dropping to the floor. Clearing his throat, he chose his words carefully. “Any relationship I may be in, ma’am, is between myself and my partner. And even if I was willin’ to discuss it, I wouldn’t do it without their consent.”

“And if you had their consent?” Jim asked; his gaze steady.

Bones couldn’t stop staring. Much to his surprise it had been Jim who wanted to keep their relationship secret, though in retrospect it shouldn’t have surprised him. Jim had a reputation and he knew how any relationship he was in would be treated- with headlines about ‘Starfleet’s Golden Boy’s Latest Trist’ or ‘Who’s Warming the Captain’s Bed Tonight’- and he would never want that for someone he truly cared for. Still, it had been getting harder to accept what with all of the press and ‘parties’ and ceremonies, always seeing Jim with women hanging off him even if the smiles he gave them were nothing like the smiles he gave Bones. “Well, I suppose I’d leave the tellin’ to them at any rate.” Bones answered once he found his voice again. This was Jim’s show and if he’d decided it was time then he’d be the one to do it.

Never taking his eyes off Bones, Jim made his way straight through the crowd, people parting like the Red Sea before him. When he got to the stage, he gracefully hopped up right next to Bones, laying one hand familiarly on his waist, the other wrapping firmly around his neck, and pulling him into a slow, searing kiss. “I love you, you cantankerous ass,” he mumbled against his lips when they parted. He turned to smile at Krissy amid the gobsmacked crowd. “I hope that answers your question, Krissy.”

“Yeah, you could say that,” she answered finally.

And like the opening of floodgates, lights began flashing and questions were being shouted, but Bones had Jim in his arms and vice versa and who cared.

---------

Bones sits in Jim’s apartment, in a chair that has become his and watches as his best-friend and love of his life prepares for one of the many receptions he has lost track of.

Jim twists and turns in front of the full length mirror inspecting every drape of fabric, making sure his suit is perfect… and his tie… and his hair… Once he’s satisfied he turns and presents himself to Bones. He swallows. He knows that look Bones has in his eyes. The one that tells him he looks too good, that he’s going to be late for the banquet Pike invited him to, and he’s going to have beautiful bruises on his hips and a love bite or two to conceal.

Slowly, Bones stands, walking with purpose and desire, he stalks towards Jim. The first thing he does is run his fingers through Jim’s hair, gripping the blond strands and gently tipping his head back to suck tenderly on the spot right behind the taut muscles and just before the collar bone. A spot he knows will cause Jim to whimper, and if he bites just so- he nips Jim’s skin- his knees to go weak. But Bones is there to hold him up, at least long enough to get to the bed. There he eases him down, runs a hand following the long length of gun metal grey silk from neck to belt appreciatively. He picks up the ends of the tie, but looks into Jim’s fiery blue eyes as he says, “Gorgeous.”

A moment later and the tie is gone, sent floating through the air to settle God knew where, and Bones had set to work on Jim’s shirt buttons. Still going methodically slowly, having to kiss each patch of skin as he virtually unwrapped Jim like he was some living breathing birthday present.

Jim could’ve fought it. He probably should have, but the truth was he loved Bones like this- quietly demanding and utterly possessive. He lay back, wiggling a little to get comfortable and to make Bones growl, running his fingers gently through Bones’ hair, ready to just enjoy the ride. The last thing he thought before he gave himself over completely was how ironic it was that no one would believe that most of the time he shows up late and slight mussed it wasn’t his fault at all.

---------


Jim stood outside the restaurant feeling like a kid on prom night, not that he’d ever had a prom night, at least not one of his own. It wasn’t even as if this was a big deal. It was just the first time since they’d gotten together they’d had the chance to do anything like this. Sure, they might go to one of the bars they frequented, or go grab a pizza or some Chinese, but not anything like an actual date. Jim wasn’t used to dates that had more meaning beyond getting laid. Of course he’d never had someone worth taking on a date that meant something more, but Bones was most definitely worth it. Bones, who accepted him as is, who didn’t put up with his shit, who for whatever reason had complete faith in him, who loved him… who was intentionally driving him crazy making him wait. Closing his eyes, he took a deep breath and made himself calm down; he was a starship captain, not that same fuck-up from nowhere Iowa, if he could face down psychotic Romulans he could handle waiting on a date. Although the way he was feeling he was beginning to think the Romulans were easier. When he opened his eyes, he felt as if the air was sucked out of his lungs, walking towards him was the most exquisite creature he’d ever seen- and being honest, he’d seen a lot. Jim had seen Bones at his lowest and his proudest and everything in between, or so he thought, but this man coming to him… he was relaxed, confident, eyes twinkling more green than gold in the night’s lighting with a genuine quirked smile. Jim was almost afraid to touch him, as if he’d prove to be a phantom his nervous mind conjured.

“Jim?” Bones’ concern was obvious.

Jim’s face broke out into nothing short of a giddy smile and he cupped Bones’ cheeks and kissed him. Hard. Possessive and claiming with a touch of hysteria. Their mouths fit together in a way that only came with familiarity and yearning, tongues dancing to a familiar tune as they made out like teenagers in front of the restaurant. When Jim finally pulled back, Bones’ hair was mussed from where his fingers had slid back into it and his lips were red and looked delicious. It was all Jim could do not to dive in again. He settled for running his hands through Bones’ hair in an effort to calm himself and straighten his lover’s hair. “Sorry. It’s just good to see you.”

“Jim, you saw me this mornin’.”

“Yeah, but that was hours ago,” he said, making sure to add some cheek to his words.

“Impossible,” Bones muttered, before taking Jim’s hand and pulling him closer. “I missed you, too, darlin’,” he confessed, leaning in for another kiss.

They never did make their dinner reservations, but they were both fine with that.

Jim sat in their car smirking as Bones smiled one of his ‘aw shucks, ma’am’ smiles at the young woman who’d cornered him as they were leaving. He knew the only reason Bones hadn’t brushed her off completely was hearing a familiar drawl flowing from her mouth. He waited, with more patience than people gave him credit for, for Bones to finish his conversation.

“Sorry, ‘bout that,” Bones apologized as he climbed into the car sitting next to Jim.

“Should I be worried that a pretty face and a Southern drawl is all it takes to take you from me?” Jim asked mischievously.

Snickering at the idea, Bones ran his hand along Jim’s thigh as he leaned over him and whisper-growled into his ear, “It’d take a helluva lot more than that to get rid of me, darlin’, and you know it.”

Jim’s fingers trailed up along the buttons of Bones’ shirt to where it hung open and unbuttoned, playing with the fine dusting of hair there before moving his attention to trace Bones’ collarbone, eliciting a contented hum from the other man.

It wasn’t long before Jim had Bones pinned to the seat, sucking a possessive mark onto his shoulder; deep red, flushing to purple, to match the mark he’d placed on Bones’ opposite shoulder the night before. He liked marking Bones, even though it was something only they ever saw; Bones liked it just as much, melting into Jim every time. Jim took his time, sucking, licking, and kissing the skin in turns, keeping steady attention on his mark, while he teasingly brushed and pinched Bones’ nipples through the fabric of his shirt.

For as loud and resounding as Bones was in his professional life, he could be equally and disturbingly quiet under Jim’s onslaught when he wanted to. It was something he knew drove Jim crazy; Jim didn’t like not being able to make Bones lose control. Some days, when he was feeling particularly playful, Bones would intentional hold back, craving the intensity and desperation Jim poured into making him fall apart. Today was one of those days. He knew his lip would be swollen and bloody by the time they got to the privacy of their quarters from the constant gnawing pressure he used to keep himself quiet under Jim’s merciless exquisite attack, but it would be so very worth it.

Jim knew this game. He could tell from the stutters in Bones’ breathing and the trembling of his body that he was getting to him. He didn’t need to see to know Bones was chewing on his lip, biting it raw; he’d have to give it extra attention later in apology. Once he was satisfied both with his mark and the way Bones shook and clutched onto him, Jim sat up slowly, pulling Bones with him, slicking his hair back to look a little less mussed then running a hand through his own. Giving Bones a cheeky grin; they both knew what would be waiting when they got home.

So I’m feeling a bit better today and since I have yet to lay down offerings to this week’s beautiful pics have a wee morsel. (though remember, a sick Mys does not a good writer make, so no promises on the actual quality, lol)

---------

Whereas Earth looked blue from space the small Class M planet they were in orbit around all but shimmered a deep maroon. The waters that covered much of the planet teemed with red and being a doctor and from the South, Bones’ first reaction was that it could be some form of ‘crimson tide’. “Damn-it, Jim, I am not gonna sign off on shore leave for a planet that might be teeming with its own form of karenia brevis. Toxin is toxin.”

“Then do the tests and once you decide it’s safe, if it’s safe, I’ll authorize shore leave. We all need it Bones.”

It took almost a full day and more tests than Jim thought were strictly necessary before his CMO was satisfied, once Bones had okayed it, Jim wasted no time in sending the first wave of crew members down for some much needed planet-side relaxation. He’d scheduled it so that he and Bones would be in the last group. Jim knew he’d need the time to convince Bones that spending five days on rose coloured shores was more than a good idea, it was a necessity. Thankfully Jim could always make a very persuasive argument, and that was before he sucked Bones’ brains out through his cock.

“C’mon, Bones, you’ll love it. I know you miss it and you ran every test imaginable and I’m pretty sure you invented a few.” Jim waved a sweeping hand at the waves swelling with the planet’s high tide. “You know you want to,” Jim cajoled.

One of the many things most people didn’t know about the good doctor was that despite his best attempts to prove otherwise he really did know how to have fun. And one of the things he enjoyed most was the ocean. Jim had almost died the first time he stumbled upon this fact. It was back at the Academy, Jim had been out all night warming some nameless person’s bed and was taking a detour by the shore before heading back to the campus. Coming out of the water, a surf board tucked under one arm was Bones. Seeing his friend in a slim black wetsuit all firm and outlined, leaving very little to the imagination, or to Jim’s imagination- and he has a very good imagination- was almost too much. Even before that, Jim had known he wanted Bones, but seeing him like that had made him want nothing more than to drag Bones back to the dorms by the scruff of his neck, like some Neanderthal claiming a mate, and do exactly that. But he hadn’t acted on those impulses back then. Bones was still too raw from ‘the divorce from Hell’ for him to have taken any advances from Jim seriously; it would be hard enough for him to take Jim seriously given his somewhat deserved reputation, and frightenly enough, Jim wanted Bones to take him seriously. Jim spent the next few years waiting, only indulging in soft hints and touches. His patience had paid off.

It took two days of wheedling before Jim got Bones out on the maroon water and just as Jim had predicted, Bones loved every minute of it, so much so that he had taken to getting up early to get out on the waves.

This morning Jim was out on the beach watching his lover, thinking about that day years ago when he’d first seen Bones like this- free and happy, dripping wet and sexy as sin- and the things he’d wanted to do. And now, five years later, two years into their mission, on some nameless red planet, he can, and does, grab Bones and drag him back to their room and they claim each other.

Summary: Jim should have been flirting and easing his way through the masses collecting numbers and selecting his bedmate for the night. Instead, he was sticking to Bones like a drowning man tries to hold onto air.

Cameras snapped and flashed all around them, nonstop noises from the crowds chittering and screaming at them, about them, to them. It was enough to drive a sane man crazy. Jim loved it. He was in his element here, the centre of attention. The one everyone wanted to see.

Unfortunately, as CMO Bones was required to be here, too- fake smile plastered firmly in place. But all through the evening he stayed at Jim’s side, or possibly Jim stayed at his; always there with a hand on his shoulder or gently guiding him along with a hand at the small of his back. It was strange, welcome, but strange. Jim should have been flirting and easing his way through the masses collecting numbers and selecting his bedmate for the night. Instead, he was sticking to Bones like a drowning man tries to hold onto air.

Bones was warm under Jim’s hand, a comforting mass of flesh and bone amid the raucous circus surrounding them. Jim’s hand tightened on Bones’ shoulder as he thought about a life without Bones at his side and he was struck, like the proverbial lightning, by what that truly meant. Making his apologies and excuses to the interviewers that had descended upon them, Jim led Bones behind a huge pillar out of sight from the hovering paparazzi

“You,” Jim said, tugging at Bones’ tie. “You,” he repeated as if that one word summed up everything… for him it did.

“Jim, what the Hell?”

“Bones, I swear to God if you tell me I’m wrong about this…” He pressed his lips gently against Bones’ coaxing them open with soft touches. Even that small touch was Heaven to Jim. At first Bones seemed to merely going through the motions making that small fissure of doubt in Jim’s mind begin to open into yawning chasm, but then Bones’ hand was in his hair, holding him in place while he explored Jim’s mouth.

Panting, they broke apart. “Not that I’m complaining, kid, but where’d that come from?”

With a self-deprecating chuckle, Jim pressed their cheeks together, speaking softly, “I’m blind, I’m an idiot, and I need you more than I’ve needed anyone or anything in my entire life.”

Bones snorted, then left a light kiss on Jim’s throat. “You’re right, you are blind and you are an idiot, but I knew you’d get there eventually.” He snuck a hand up to loosen Jim’s tie, nuzzling the collar out of the way to get to the lower, obscured part of Jim’s neck. “I need you, too, you egotistical brat,” he said, biting down and sucking a bruise into the skin just above Jim’s shoulder.

Sighing, Jim tugged Bones’ closer; the noise of the crowds, cacophonous and searing, fading into the background.

Jim stretched as he came out of the bathroom, showered and refreshed after a somewhat boring shift on the bridge. He slipped on a pair of well-worn and comfortable jeans and padded over to his wardrobe. He smiled when he saw the pale shirt he’d ‘borrowed’ from Bones. He liked to have things of his strewn about his quarters and even better when they were ‘strewn’ on him. Pulling the shirt out he could swear he smelled Bones as if he was right there in his face. With a smirk he put it on, feeling more relaxed than he had in days. The slow days on the Enterprise were sometimes harder to take than the insane ones, and they’d had more than their normal allotment of slow days in the last weeks.

It was late; most of the crew were either sleeping or on duty, which was perfect for Jim. He left his quarters and made his way to the observation deck through deserted corridors. Sitting in one of the chairs closest to the mammoth window, Jim let himself fall into the comfort of having the things he loved most wrapped around him. It was peaceful in a way he never felt planetside, no matter how pleasant the surroundings. He checked the time; Bones would be getting off his shift in a couple hours and come looking for him, no doubt. Nor was there any doubt Bones would find him quickly enough even without using the ship’s locator.

Jim was floating on the hum of the ship’s engine and the stars drifting passed, when he heard the turbo lift door open. Bones.

He waited on shaky breaths for Bones to come to him, and when he did Jim had to dig his fingers into the chair to keep from launching himself on his lover right then and there. Bones was looking at him the way he looked at an obstinate patient- a look more often than not directed at Jim- but with a different kind of heat. This was smouldering, a burning in his eyes lighting fires within the green hues. This was hunger; a predator analyzing its prey.

Bones stopped directly in front of him, arms crossed stubbornly across his chest. “Do you know how long I’ve been looking for that shirt?” he asked in a low drawl that bordered on menacing.

Jim gave him his best devilish smirk, one that dared as much as it pleaded. “What are you going to do about it, doctor?”

The ‘doctor’ had Bones arching his eyebrow as he stepped closer. Landing his hands on either side of the chair, effectively caging Jim in. “What I will do about it, Captain,” he began, in a honeyed whisper, locking their eyes, “is bodily remove you from this chair, escort you to your quarters, help you take off my shirt, strip you naked, tie you to the bed, and attempt to suck your brain out through your cock, while you fuck yourself on my fingers. And maybe if you’re a very good boy I’ll even let you come.” Bones voice came out in a long deep purr. Predator-prey. “So darlin’, what’s it gonna be? You gonna give me my shirt back?”

Panting, Jim gulped hard, but managed a defiant, “No.”

Eyes flashing, Bones growled, but before he could move Jim had ducked under his arm, grabbing it as he moved away, pulling Bones with him towards the turbo lift and his quarters, so that Bones could make good on his whispered words.

Some say the eyes are the windows to the soul. A portal to what makes a man, his very core. Sometimes Jim wonders if that’s what he sees in Bones’ eyes, behind the love that seems to have taken up residence there. He sees forests and valleys and the turning of the seasons. He sees life and earth and feelings he can’t explain. Nor can he explain how he sees feelings, but he does. He feels the warmth of the sun beating down on cool grass- soft, new growth that hasn’t firmed and dried in the heat. He feels the comfort and safety of the trees towering overhead protecting with intertwined branches of full green leaves that kept rains and heavy sunlight at bay. He felt the cool moss along the rocky riverside and the chilled water as it splashed against the bank and rolled around stepping stones. He saw all of that and more in Bones’ eyes. Maybe they were a portal to the soul; everything he saw there reminded him of Bones, nurturing, protective, changing, yet constant, warm, and giving him such a sense of freedom.

Bones lowered his PADD with a gruff sigh and pinched the tender skin of the ankle in his lap.

“Ow!”

“That’s what you get for gawkin’,” Bones drawled.

Jim pulled his feet out of Bones’ lap, took the PADD from his hands, setting it safely on the coffee table, and crawled over until he had Bones pressed up against the arm of the couch, his thumb rubbing the skin just below Bones’ eyelashes. “I wasn’t gawking.” He cocked his head to the side and smiled as the angle made Bones’ eyes flash a deeper green. “I was…” he thought about the right words to use, “searching.”

“What for?”

“You,” he said simply.

Bones made a half huffed chuckle and shook his head; he’d long ago stopped trying to understand how Jim’s mind worked, choosing instead to simply go along for the ride.

“Your eyes,” he explained. “They’re you.” His voice was tinged with a hint of wonder.

“You’re serious?” Bones brow furrowed trying to follow Jim’s meaning.

“Yeah,” he breathed, stroking beneath Bones’ eyes again. “Look at my eyes and tell me what you see. What you really see.”

Bones wasn’t at all sure where Jim was going with this, but it wasn’t as if it was a chore to stare into those hypnotic blue eyes. He let out an exasperated huff for show as much as anything, before turning his head and quickly placing a kiss on Jim’s palm and doing as he asked. Jim’s eyes were always a delight to him, even if he wouldn’t dare say anything- Leonard McCoy did not wax poetic. Still, he couldn’t help be drawn into them, really looking as Jim told him. It took a moment, but he began to see. The gleaming powder blues that gave way to a cool icy ones, ringed with the dark hues of the night sky. It was Jim. All sunshine and Spring mornings and clear blue skies full of hope and happiness. Watery falls and currents that were wild and deep, turbulent tides crashing around rocky outcrops; feeding into calm lagoons of the purest blue. And beyond that he could see stars, the heavens that Jim belonged in. He sucked in a breath, understanding what Jim meant and not entirely sure how to react to it. He brought his hand up to mirror Jim’s, stroking the skin around Jim’s eyes, brushing his fingertips over soft half closed eyelids. “You,” Bones finally whispered, echoing Jim’s earlier words. “Just you.”

Smiling, Jim pulled Bones’ hand away from his face, twining their fingers. Pressing their foreheads together, he bumped his nose against Bones’. “I love you, you know.”

“I had my suspicions.” The words were hushed, laced with sincerity rather than their usual sarcasm.

“I’m happy to confirm them,” Jim answered just as softly, brushing his lips against Bones, before settling in for a slow, thorough exploration of his mouth.

They pulled apart reluctantly; dazed, sleepy expressions on both their faces. Bones hugged Jim to him as the younger man nuzzled into his neck. “You know you didn’t have to go through all this just to get me to say I love you,” his breath ghosted over Jim’s ear.

“Mmm,” he agreed, settling in on a patch of skin to nibble and suck on. He gave his chosen spot a lick and a kiss, murmuring against Bones’ skin, “Still haven’t said it.”

Bones’ chuckle turned into a gasp as Jim bit down on his neck, worrying the skin until it was a deep bruising red. “Brat,” Bones teased; his sarcasm back in full form once he found his voice, albeit a gruffer, somewhat breathless voice. “You know I love you.”

“Yeah,” Jim agreed, making himself more comfortable on his human pillow, “I saw it in your eyes.”
