[Jim has always been totally fine with the lack of touchiness in his relationship with Spock. It comes with the territory of loving a Vulcan. He's usually the one to give the blatant affection, and he's learned to read the small offerings of Vulcan affection that typically falls below the human radar, finding each finger brushing sends his heart pounding. But sometimes, he likes to grab Spock and give him a direct, firm kiss, pressingly completely against him.]

[Their mental bond usually gives Spock a moment of notice before it happens, but it is such an escalation from their usual interactions that it does often take him by surprise. On this occasion Jim has pounced as soon as Spock has returned from his daily exercise—he makes a habit of both running and practicing hand-to-hand combat regularly. Because Vulcans do not sweat, Spock’s normally cool body temperature drops even further after exertion, so were he human no doubt his skin would feel dangerously hypothermic. Were he to hold his ground, Jim would likely be unable to push him back, but Spock does not tense or resist, allowing Jim to kiss him and ease him back toward the wall. Lifting his head away after a moment, he raises a brow, looking down at Jim.]

I see your shift has ended, t’hy’la.

How about both?

[Sometimes even Jim has to admit he's pushed his wakefulness too far. Sometimes he'll run by the rush of adrenaline during an exciting mission and won't be able to calm down for ages. But, when he finally does, a stale, humming headache surrounds the front of his head and the captain visibly wilts against Spock's shoulder in the safety of their room.]

[Spock sets his PADD aside, feeling Jim’s head fall against his shoulder. The Vulcan turns slowly, easing his captain down onto the bed before moving to sit on the edge of the cot. He’s just to the side of Jim’s chest. Spock carefully reaches out his hands, placing two slim fingers on Jim’s temples, closing his own eyes to send a wave of quiet calm through their bond.]

You must not push yourself to extremes, t’hy’la. Humans are not built for such exhaustion.

But not for snuggling.

[ As drowsiness invaded Jim’s mind, his thoughts grew disconnected and lazy, his head growing heavier against Spock’s shoulder. He shuffled closer to nuzzle into his neck, enjoying the cooler skin against his forehead. That’s right. Become to entangled in Spock’s body to make it physically impossible for him to leave.

Very Kirk-like. ]

No. Not for snuggling.

[The Vulcan lifts his brows as Jim begins to fall deeper into sleep, somehow managing to keep a firm hold on Spock despite his exhausted and semi-conscious state. 

Very Kirk-like indeed.

Though what is quite Spock-like is the way the Vulcan does manage to physically extricate himself once Jim is deep in sleep. Patiently and carefully, Spock’s cool and dextrous hands make tiny adjustments in Jim’s sleeping position until he’s free. Resting a cool palm on his captain’s forehead, the Vulcan closes his eyes to send one more gentle wave of tranquility to the other’s mind. 

He’ll be on the bridge—as first officer that is his place when the captain is indisposed.]

You must not push yourself to extremes, t’hy’la. Humans are not built for such exhaustion.

[Spock is always content to wait with Jim while he falls asleep. Over the years the Vulcan has become more comfortable with using his abilities to ease the stresses of his shipmates. He didn’t overstep into the medical realm of course, but sometimes people preferred something less clinical when the problem was simply exhaustion or an overwhelming rush of emotions. There were medications that could help with that of course, but Spock could siphon it off just as easily.

As Jim shifted, pulling on his wrist, Spock shifted back so that Jim was more or less curled around him, but did not lie fully down. Instead he draped one arm across Jim’s shoulders, the other gently breaking Jim’s grasp on his wrist and moving again to his captain’s temple—his touch cool as always.]

I am not. I have only been awake for twenty-eight hours. Sleep is not mandatory until seventy-two hours of wakefulness have passed.

Hmph.

[ Jim let out a soft huff, but happily allowed himself to be moved around Spock as he pleased. He nestled into the Vulcan’s side and curled around his waist, listening to the pound of his heart. He vaguely notes that thought that he should someday calculate his and Spock’s sleeping patterns so that they may sleep together every time Spock went to sleep, but the thought left as quickly as it came. Instead, he focused on the soothing coolness of the Vulcan’s body, and the touch to his head. He would be satisfied just with Spock caressing his face, but caressing his mind is just a bonus. ]

Bummer.

[Spock’s mouth twitched slightly at the sound of mild discontent. Jim eventually settled himself, however, and Spock could feel his own heart—situated low in his abdomen—beating slowly and steadily against Jim’s chest. He felt Jim’s mind musing and stayed close to the train of thought, but didn’t make any effort to insert himself. He continued to send relaxing, calming impulses through the point at which his fingers met Jim’s temples.]

It does have significant efficiency benefits.

[Cheating is of course a relative term. One could also describe it as philanthropy or generosity—using one’s own special talents for the particular and immediate benefit of another. Spock moves to lift his hands from Jim’s temples, but is halted in his retreat by the hand that wraps around one of his wrists. One hand effectively captured, the other comes to rest softly on Jim’s shoulder.]

As you wish. But you must take your rest. I will remain until you are sleeping soundly if you like.

[ Jim peaks an open eye at him with a vague twitch of a smile. It’s always a rare phenomenon when he can get Spock to actually sleep the night through next to him. He doesn’t especially mind as long as he can fall asleep beside him, but it would be nice every so often to wake up to him. But he’ll take it. He grunts a sleepy sound and shifts onto his side, making room to pull Spock down with him. ]

You’re not tired? At all?
