Happy New Year
Jim smiles to himself as the message makes it to him. Not via PADD, although he’s certain that’s waiting for him, too, but he’s walking back from HQ to the apartment and he hasn’t looked.
It’s now 12:01. He hadn’t meant to leave so late, but there was so much to do, so much to plan for, and with Komack currently out of commission it fell to Jim.
Happy New Year, he said in kind, then added, I Miss You.
He stopped on the way at his favorite pizza place, knowing Jock would keep it open for Jim, which was why had had called ahead.
“Here you go, Admiral. Extra cheese just like you like it.”
“Thank you. And Happy New Year.”
The apartment was dark, of course, until Jim set the lights on, then put his pizza down. There was some old legend, he’d long forgotten the source for it, that said you’d spend the year doing what you did that first day, so that meant he’d be eating pizza, he guessed.
After grabbing a slice, he checked his PADD and sure enough there was a message from Spock.
Happy New Year, T’hy’la. I miss you more than I can say. We’ve come along way together in the last two years and I know that together our love and bond will only grow stronger. I cannot wait to be reunited.
Jim smiled faintly. Two years ago, his heart remained cold to Spock when Spock returned after rejecting Jim. But a year ago, he’d given Spock a second chance. Their relationship was better than it had been before Spock had rejected him, and though Spock was currently off Earth due to Sarek’s illness, everything was good and Jim didn’t miss Spock too much.
But boy was his Vulcan a mushy romantic these days.
He typed that very thing and only a moment later he got a response.
Yes. You are eating pizza.
Through the bond
Jim chuckled. “How did you know?” he asked out loud.
I can smell it.
Smell it? Is there smellivision in the bond?
That would be convenient, but no. Open the door, Admiral.
Smiling big, Jim rose from the table, ran to the front door, and greeted his husband with open arms and a big kiss.
“Now it’s a Happy New Year.”

Oh. Oh! This made me so happy. Love to see this pair again and I love the romantic mush so much. It’s exactly what I need to end the year. Perfection!

Well I guess the legend (which I never heard about 🤷🏻♀️) is accurate,. Jim will be spending the year doing what he did on New Year’s day, hugging and loving Spock! 🤗😘😍🥰
Kudos on this romantic addition to your story line-up!
What dates are those other stories from, so I can reread them contiguously?
Happy New Year, Ivan!!!

Awww! Yet another gift this month! Thank you.
And a very sweet and precious gift. I love it.
Smellivision! That’s hilarious.
And they should be able to ring the new year in, in each other’s arms. And extra cheesy…I mean, cheese! 😄😄😄
(and for the record, I was hoping against hope there would be a surprise flash today. I’m so happy!!)
And yes, just like Eveningstar, I gotta reread those too!
