A/N : hitlikehammers requested fluffy hurt/comfort for her birthday. I'm not sure it's fluffy, exactly, but the ending is sweet enough to rot your teeth. :D? I hope you like it, bb!

Addendum: This fic has been remixed by the completely amazing linelenagain. Make sure you go read it: A Hard Act to Follow. The title does not lie - I'm glad I don't have to follow that act! :D

Happy Birthday hitlikehammers!Collapse )

Thank you, hon! And "adorbs" is an awesome word and I think I'm going to have to steal it. :DDD Thinking about Jim & Bones often puts a happy goofy smile on my face too, so I will never mind it on anyone else.

*thud* That's me falling off my chair in the corner of Starbucks. *g*

H/C is my crack. And this was very good crack. And the kiss? Yeah, there may be a puddle they will need to clean up over here too.

Absolutely loved it!

Oh, I'm sorry about the falling-off-your-chair-and-melting-into-a-puddle thing! ;)

God, I love h/c. I'm glad so many others seem to share my love - it means there's more chance of more being produced! *hint hint*

Thanks for the lovely fb, bb. :)

Thank you so much. :) I'm glad you enjoyed. I felt like poor Jim needed some kind of stress relief after the events of the movie!

You gave me a SHOUTOUT!!! XD

So, this fic totally rocks my hurt/comfort button in the most awesome of ways. Also, HIVE MIND!!! Okay, so, now I’ll start leaving coherent crack.

Bones so clearly knows Jim inside and out, and that makes me very happy. As does the thought of Jim up a tree. But, really, just the idea that Bones knows Jim well enough to find him, when he could be hiding anywhere in the city is kinda gorgeous to me.

And he stays, even though, in pure Bones fashion, he feels like he has no idea what he’s doing. I adore that little moment where he remembers Jocelyn’s words to him, and it’s not like he remembers them bitterly or as hurtful, just as fact. It’s like she hurt him so deeply and subtly that he was unaware of it. In a way, it makes this fic kinda a double hurt/comfort situation. As Bones comforts Jim, and lets Jim know that someone is there for him, he heals a little himself.

And then there’s Jim, and two things I love about Jim here – 1)that he cries, and then he and Bones *don’t* have to talk about it to death, because of course he’d need a good cry after everything that happened, and 2) that even when he’s having a little breakdown, he’s still thinking and figuring things out. And then he acts on it. Because he’s Jim. :)

And it’s hot! I’m a bit of a sucker for a messy kiss, and I LOVE the teary, saliva-y, frantically needy kiss they share. And then Bones gets possessive. And you just know that’s awesome!

So, in conclusion, love this. Muchly. It’s actually one of my favorite of the fics you’ve written for these two, and not just because I got a shoutout. :)

*Hugs you, loves you, needs you*

Eeeee, ennui-crack, the best kind!

Of COURSE I gave you a shoutout, bb. It makes you happy, which makes me happy, so it's a win-win. :D Plus, the hive mind thing was a shoutout to our sykik link too. :)

I've already told you this via chat, but I LOVE your comment about double hurt/comfort, because it IS, and even though I intended it that way, I didn't KNOW I intended it that way until you had pointed it out. Then I was like, "of course that's what I was trying to do, I just hadn't realized it!" If that makes any sense at all. Anyway, you get my fics even better than I do, is the point.

And yeah, I think Jocelyn messed Bones up pretty bad, in ways that he doesn't even fully realize, and I also think that she was probably right about some stuff, even if she could have been kinder about how she said it. And I love that Bones is trying to change for Jim, because Jim's worth it.

Hee, yeah, Jim's always thinking, even when he's having a mini-breakdown. The wheels just never stop turning!

Oooh, I didn't know you had a button for messy, desperate kisses. I'll have to add that to the list!

Thank you so much for the comment, honey. Reading your fb always puts a huge smile on my face, and you're so much part of my life & my writing process that every fic is at least partially written for you.

I hug&love&need you too, honey. ♥

This made me really happy! I especially love how stubborn Bones is and how he knows he is totally useless against tears but will try for Jim. Fabulous!

Ung and sniffle. Oh, bb, I've said it before but your KISSING is just amazing. *whimpers* I love it when they're all in love and they kiss and all the emotions come crashing in. God, I'm such a sap.
Sky: [star trek aos] jim & bones backsskyblue_reverie on April 20th, 2010 04:37 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you so much, bb! I'm always trying to work on writing better kissing, because I've read a few fics where the kissing is every bit as hot as full-on porn would've been. I'm not there yet, but I shall persevere. :D And I am every bit as much a sap as you are, so we can just revel in our sappiness together. ♥

Don't know how I missed this?!?

I love Bones take on Jim here, how he'd fly to the moon for Jim even if he didn't know Jim loved him back.

Love them like this... together, comforting, supporting, and there for each other as no one has ever been before.

*sighs happily*

Thank you so much, bb! Yes, that's exactly how I see them - this is the first time in their lives that either of them has had someone who was really completely devoted to them. They put each other before anything else and that's such a beautiful thing, isn't it? *le sigh*

*hugs* ♥
