can’t get much cuddlier than that I think!
Jim and Bones’ kids idea of what a healthy relationship is is going to be so delightfully screwed.
YES BUT ALSO NOT AT ALL
And, oh my god okay, this is the closest I will ever get to writing kidfic for this pairing because DESPITE WHAT I AM ABOUT TO WRITE DOWN, I firmly believe that Jim and Bones are far more likely to be the fun uncles who watch over and love everybody else’s kids than to have kids themselves. Partially this is because I think Jim would be like “FUCK NO, BEING A PARENT MEANS DAMAGING YOUR CHILD, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU’LL HURT THEM, WHAT IF WE HAD A KID AND YOU DIED, WHAT IF WE HAD A KID AND I DIED, I WANT TO TRAVEL THE STARS AND NEVER FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT.” And partially it’s because my personal headcanon for Bones is that his lack of desire for kids is part of why his marriage ended? Because I personally think Bones was probably on the undecided-but-willing-to-be-convinced end of the spectrum on the kids issue until he had to, you know, sort of kill his dad, after which point I suspect he came down firmly on the “No,” side, because Bones has Got Fears and I think the thought of potentially putting a child in that position, or being in that position again as a father, however irrational, would kind of be the deciding vote. And that kind of strife in a marriage—one person wants kids and expects to have them and the other person was semi-onboard and then changes their mind—could totally cause the build-up of anger and hurt feelings that could lead to Bones’ ex taking “the whole damn planet” in the divorce. (And yes I know Bones has a daughter in TOS and yes I know pulling the thinks-he-killed-his-dad thing but not this means I am picking and choosing from the TOS canon at will, but I am operating on the assumption that Bones has no kids in the reboot because that seems like the kind of thing movie producers would cut for a number of reasons, obviously if this turns out to be wrong at some point I will eat my hat etc etc).
BUT IF JIM AND BONES DID HAVE KIDS DESPITE ALL THAT, I actually think those kids would have a super comprehensive view of what a healthy relationship looked like, for a lot of different reasons. First of all, Jim and Bones rag on each other a lot and argue a lot and exasperate each other a lot and tease each other a lot, but they do it with a lot lot lot of love behind it, and that’s what kids pick up on, really—they’re a lot more aware of tone than content, and especially when they’re real small and really forming these impressions for the first time. And Jim and Bones are never actually trying to hurt one another, you know? Yeah, Jim is a total asshole, but he’s also a deeply compassionate person, and yeah, Bones is a total asshole, but he’s also like the consummate healer, and yeah, they’re TOTALLY that ridiculous couple that bickers constantly and makes everybody kind of hate them, but they’re that couple because they get a ton of pleasure out of being that way, and I think there’s probably a whole fuckton of laughter, too. They’re best friends, after all. They balance each other out.
PLUS, any kids Jim and Bones might have would be Children Of The Enterprise, just like any kids Spock and Uhura might have or Sulu and Chekov might have or Scotty might create and call “engines” (whoops, my ships are showing). So like, those kids? Would get to see Jim and Bones’ bickering, bantering sort of love, and also Spock and Uhura’s grounded, stabilizing sort of love, and also Sulu and Chekov’s easy, sweet sort of love, and also Scotty’s deep, passionate love for the ship. And on top of that, there’d be all the friendship love—Jim and Spock’s push-and-pull, Bones and Nyota’s commiseration, Scotty and Spock and Chekov with their shared math passions, Jim and Sulu’s sparring sessions and joint adrenaline junkie streaks, Spock and Bones’s friendly enmity, Chekov and Nyota’s secret teasing of the rest of the bridge (none of the rest of them speak Russian, it’s great), Scotty and Bones’s booze-born camaraderie, Spock and Sulu bonding over botany, Jim and Nyota’s state of semi-perpetual competition… and that’s just a few shades the main seven! That’s not counting like, Gaila and Nurse Chapel and the whole rest of the Enterprise family, like, THOSE KIDS WOULD KNOW LOVE UP DOWN AND BACKWARDS, IS MY POINT HERE.
….wow that got out of hand, I APOLOGIZE FOR RESPONDING TO YOUR INNOCENT COMMENT WITH SUCH MADNESS.
