Trek Fic: First Gift, Second Chance (Pike/McCoy, PG-13)  
Title: First Gift, Second Chance
Author: skyblue_reverie
Fandom & Pairing/Characters: Star Trek Reboot (aka AOS, ST XI, etc.), Pike/McCoy raising de-aged Jim, so fairly Jim-centric
Rating: PG-13ish? (A couple of bad words but no smut - I know!)
Spoilers: None
Warnings: Dangerous levels of fluff ahead!
Word Count: around 5000
Summary: "My name's Jimmy. And you're old."
Disclaimer: Any resemblance to anything whatsoever is purely coincidental.
A/N : This one is ivorysilk's help_pakistan fic, for the prompt of Pike and McCoy taking care of a de-aged Jim. It was fabulously fun to write! The title is inspired by the Marge Piercy quote, "Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third." Thanks to my beloved BFF ennui_blue_lite for the beta. Any remaining errors are, of course, all my own.

My name's Jimmy. And you're old.Collapse )
How do I feel?: cheerfulcheerful

:DDD Yay! I hit all the items on the checklist! \o/

Heh, well, I'm not sure if there will be a sequel or not. I wasn't thinking of doing one, but.... mayyyyyyyybe. No promises. ;)

Thank you so much for your comment, bb! <3

This was awesome. Totally freaking adorable. <3

Like ivorysilk I didn't dig kidfic until the trek fandom. This was so well done, totally digging Bones in Dad mode and Pike hhahahahah awesome.

Eeee, thank you so much! Adorable was definitely the goal, and I'm very glad I achieved it! <3

Bones in dad-mode is just awesome to contemplate and poor Pike, he's a bit overwhelmed, but he's learning! :D

I am not usually big on kidfic either, but for me I think a lot depends on how it's done. If there are going to be kids in fic, I want them to be realistic, not perfect little angels as they are in some fics. However - I make absolutely no judgments on those fics and those who like 'em because I love unrealistic stuff in fic too - I love romantic, not-a-touch-out-of-place, totally in-sync, absolutely perfect sex in fic, and lord knows that's just as unrealistic as kids who never misbehave. ;)

ANYWAY. Sorry to ramble atcha. ;) Thanks so much for the comment.

Oh lord I've had out of town relatives all weekend and I've been wanting to read this since I saw it. I LOVE IT!!!!!! Chris and Len are just perfect as Jimmy's parents.

Now I really want to know more about this. But I know how much you already have on your plate so I won't beg to shamelessly for more.

Awww, that's so flattering that you've been looking forward to reading this! I'm so glad it was worth the wait. *hugs*

yeah, idk if I'll write more. If you look upthread, I'm discussing with k_angeldiva how I think it might fall out depending on what Jim chose to do. But I think there would be a lot of heartache, whichever way it went, before the healing happened. So I don't know if I want to go there. ;_;

I feel so sad for McCoy losing his best friend in all of this but, gosh, Kirk as a child is so cute and I love the Fathers! Also Kirk's Vulcan friend was VERY cute! xDD

Awesome Fic~!!!<33

Eeeee, thank you! I'm so pleased that you liked it. I totally feel for McCoy in this. Him most of all. And now he's damned either way because either he loses grown-up Jim or bb Jim. He can't have both. :(((

BUT - don't think about that! Cuteness! Pike and McCoy as dads! Adorable little Vulcan boys! ;)

"Next morning when Spock and I came to get him, his eyes were big as moons and when he stood up, he threw up all over Spock's boots. I'll never forget the look on Spock's face. No emotions, my ass." AH HA HA WHEEEE!

i love all of jimmy's other dads!

"Dads? You guys are the best dads ever. Can we have ice cream?" - OMG I WOULD GIVE THIS CHILD ANYTHING HE WANTED. IT WOULD BE HOPELESS.

Ahahaha omg I love this comment way too much. ♥

Heh heh heh, I somehow love robbing Spock of his dignity. He's just so prissy. But I love him, I do. :D

Yay for "other" dads! And omg yes, bb Jim would be SO hard to say no to. Luckily Len and Chris are both ruthless, tough disciplinarians... bwahahahahahaha.

Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

I loved it. Kid Jim is still so smart and I loved him being certain about what he wanted and still being childlike at the same time. I liked Bones and Pike as parents, wonderful fic.

Thank you so much! It's really hard to write kids without making them too precocious or too adorable or too bratty, but to find a balance. Or at least, I find it so. :) So I am very happy to hear that kid Jim worked for you! Hee hee. Poor Bones and Pike. They had their hands full, didn't they?

I was re-reading this, because I still love it so much. Whatever you are up to these days, I hope life is treating you kindly, and hope you will return to writing--in any form--soon :-)
Skyskyblue_reverie on January 25th, 2012 04:28 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you so much, hon. That means a lot. *hugs* Life's tough right now, NGL. But I'll make it through, and hopefully, yeah, will get back to writing too. <3
