[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?

[ If Jim was more than half awake, he might accuse Spock of cheating by mentally lulling him to sleep. But, for now, his body visibly sinks into the comfort of the bed as the adrenaline leaks out of his veins. Still, he can vaguely feel himself, even with the incredibly comfort that is Spock’s mind. He’s barely aware of his hand lifting to curl around his friend’s wrist, sending a single thought merged sleepily desire: ]

Stay here, with me.

[Pretending they were separated for a while because Jim muse has missed Spock, so as soon as he sees his Vulcan again (in relative privacy), he launches at him and hugs him tightly.] Hey.

captainofthesky:

first--officer--spock:

[I’m sure Spock has been on extended leave teaching a very important class on xenolinguistics or something similar while the Enterprise was on a relatively non-critical mission. He’s a little startled, but he takes it in stride and returns the embrace in accordance with Terran customs.] 

Hello, Jim.

[ And Jim really is quite the fan of that look.

Barely concealing an excited grin, Jim nodded and slid out his PADD to hand to his first officer, peering over his shoulder. ]

The surrounding interference seems to be expanding its borders, so we’re meant to figure out how and why and to reverse the process if we can.

[Spock took the PADD, his brows furrowing as he listened to Jim explain their current mission.]

It is possible that a massive electrical storm could be responsible. Although it would have to be a storm of extraordinary and unprecedented size to create inference of this sort.

I will see what literature there is in the scientific databases regarding phenomenon of this sort.
