jim almost losing bones on a mission and afterwards, back in the safety of their quarters, twisting his fingers in bones’ shirt as he asks, how do you deal with it?

with what?

loss. or— fear of it, i guess.

and bones just looks at him for a long moment before brushing his knuckles down jim’s jaw, shaking his head. says, I couldn’t even let you die properly.

jim holds on tighter. 



hey just a warning for xkit users on chrome, if you get the little red RESET warning, don’t click it. there is nothing wrong with it but upon resetting xkit will not be able to install anymore. the newest chrome update did something to the xkit guy’s coding or servers or something and he can’t quite figure out how to fix it, so don’t reset your xkit. i unfortunately learned this the hard way.
