I am pretty sure I read these fics on A03 a long time ago, but i can't for the life of me find them...
Here is what i remember from the stories in generell:
-series of vignettes (maybe 5+1's) of the life between Bones and Kirk from meeting in the shuttle, to getting through the acadamy, to servicing in space, to teaching classes afterwards and retirement (pretty much an fullfilled long life)
-bones and kirk seem to be codependet/in everlasting epic love/friendship and not willing or able to be living without one another
What all these fics have in common and what i distinctly remember the best was the heartbreaking death of one character (almost always bones). And not beacause it was so horrific in a splattery kind of way. It was always silent and natural and with the buildup beforhand totally heartwrecking, in an everlasting love kind of way.
Here is what i remember of the deaths or what made me cry in the end:
- jim lying on in side of bed at home after bones dies and taking his last breath (or maybe the otherway around), both have lived a long life and are now in retirement?
-jim taking his last breath, while giving the eulogy, because he just couldn't go on without bones, in front of all his collegues and friends
-jim being confused while teaching, not sure what to eat in the cafeteria, always looking for a missing bones etc.
-both jim and bones dying together in bed (maybe even at the exact same moment?)
If anything rings a bell or you know of another fic that fits this pattern... I am seriously in need of a good cry over an epic lovestory (kind of).
