Here is your NYE fic for this year
It was nearly midnight and Jim knew he should be sticking around for the virtual ball drop and for everyoe to scream Happy New Year while kissing everyone that they could get their lips on. But he’d finished his champagne, set down his glass, and snuck out a side door.
He’d explain to his date, Olivia, later. When last he’d seen her, she was surrounded by her throng of admirers. If she didn’t talk to him again, he wasn’t really sure that was a bad thing.
It was crisply cold outside and windy. It blew the scarf he’d wrapped around his neck around so violently it was a wonder it didn’t fly off into the air never to be seen again. He quickened his stride, wanting to be anywhere else but the streets of San Francisco as midnight struck.
There was only five minutes to spare when he made it inside the apartment building. He took the stairs two at a time not wanting to chance getting stuck if the lift broke down yet again.
It was a foolish dream. Time wasn’t even the same where Spock was. And yet, he had this burning need to contact his former first officer.
It has been months since their…whatever it was they’d had before their mutual departure.
He opened his apartment door, ordered the lights on, and rushed to his terminal. He immediately pulled up the information for contacting New Vulcan. But as the seconds ticked away and there was no answer, Jim’s heartbeat slowed, and disappointment soured the champagne that sat inside his stomach.
Jim briefly closed his eyes, willing himself not to give into the illogical emotion of regret. He hadn’t seen Spock since February. And yes they’d spent a night of scorching intimacy but parted as mere friends.
Spock had said so and Jim had done his best to convince himselr that was what he wanted too.
A knock on his door had him rising, prepared to face an angry Olivia or even a nosey Bones. He could hear the countdown to midnight outside his apartment even as he opened the door.
“Spock,” he whispered.
“Happy New Year.”
And the kiss he received at midnight was the best he’d ever had.

Bam right in the feels. Whole way through. But chefs kiss perfection. So so good.
Happy New Year’s Eve!

This made me happy. Lonely Jim escapes the party. He’s definitely taking the right steps!
…Yes Jim! Ditch Olivia!!! Love that he had a “burning need to contact his former first officer.” (And at the same time that Spock is coming to him!) i’m trying to figure out how old they are in this. Is it past the five-year mission?
I’m thinking it’s their unacknowledged bond between them. Spock is answering the call, but not on his terminal!
Happy New Year! 🎊🎈🎉
I’ll be at work at midnight. I’m still sick. Have a cough and sinus infection. Waiting in my car outside urgent care. There’s a two hour wait at this time. I tried to go yesterday but they were suspending any new registrations for waiting to be seen. 😱
My three kids will be with friends in New York City at two different venues for New Year’s . And my husband will be home alone. He’s going to a concert tonight at Madison Square Garden, with a buddy of his though, who’s a big Phish fan. So he’s getting to do something cool this weekend. 🐠🐟Although he admitted he doesn’t really know the names of any Phish songs. Lol!!
So wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year, Ivan and readers!! 💕

Sorry to hear you are sick. I assume you have been tested for Covid again. Regardless they shouldn’t have a sick person tendingto the elderly in my opinion. Quite irresponsbile.
Jim and Spock are definitely after the 5 year mission, the first one anyway, and directly after the mission they had a one night stand. Now several months later, Jim yearns for Spock and Spock finally figures it out!
I’ve never heard of Phish but I hope your husband enjoys. I’ll be at my sister’s for most fo the day New Year’s Eve. So nothing too partyish. Today we are taking down Christmas!

Looks like Spock also had a burning need for Jim too.
Olivia is an idiot. With a ton of admirers, apparently.
And apparently Spock was too.
Perhaps now, Spock plans to wise up a bit!
Happy New Year! To them and to you!

Yeah I sort of had one of those beautiful women who are famous for being famous who had their own television show if you know who I mean. Starts with a K. LOL. That’s how I picture Olivia. Definitely an idiot. Yes Spock briefly was an idiot but woke up just in time
Happy New Year

I have to go to work. My bronchitis in November it away my sick time. If I called sick I wouldn’t get paid for being homesick and I also wouldn’t get paid holiday pay so I lose two days pay !
However, on a bright note, I tested negative for Covid so I don’t have that again. I just got over it three weeks ago. It was pretty mild thanks to my vaccination and three boosters. Also today I tested negative for RSV and the flu. What I have is a sinus infection which is generally not contagious.
I googled phish songs. I found that they have a Grateful Dead kind of vibe to them. 🌈🦄
Take care and be well.
