The appointed hour for dinner came far too soon for both Kirk and Bones as they stood outside the Enterprise’ guest quarters. Bones had barely finished pressing the doorbell when the doors slid open to reveal a beaming man wearing a bowtie of all things. “Lenny, good to see you again and this must be James T. Kirk; I have wanted to meet you for the longest time.” The man spoke in a rapid-fire clip that almost made the words run together; Jim wondered if he was nervous or if he was always this way.
Kirk barely had a chance to blink before the strange man grabbed him by the chin and licked his cheek. ‘What the…?’
“Great-granddad, that is enough!” Bones snapped in a mixture of frustration and embarrassment as he yanked Kirk out of his arms.
The Doctor merely grinned at him and waggled his eyebrows. It was clear that Leonard had inherited Jack’s possessiveness when it came to his lover. “Just saying hello,” he shrugged as he remained standing in the doorway.
Bones narrowed his eyes suspiciously. “What are you doing here anyway? I thought it would be just Jack and Ianto tonight.”
“Oh, no!” The Doctor’s grin widened until he looked like the Cheshire Cat. “Let’s see, there’s me and River, and Tosh and John, and Uncle Owen and his mates, and…” Unable to continue the charade, the Doctor broke down into gales of laughter. “If you could just see your faces!” he chortled breathlessly.
Bones heaved a sigh of relief, and he actually had to grab onto Jim’s waist to keep him upright as the other man’s knees threatened to buckle. “Very funny, you got me good,” he smiled weakly.
“I know! Isn’t it great?” Beaming, the Doctor finally stepped back from the door and waved his arms at them. “Come on in; dinner’s waiting,” he happily informed them, beyond pleased with himself. Ianto had tried to talk to him out of playing a practical joke at all, much less at the very first moment they met, but as usual, the Doctor hadn’t listened to his level-headed son.
Sharing a look of wary exasperation, Bones and Kirk stepped through the looking glass and into the mad house that was Bones’ family.
Dinner had been an interesting event as Kirk found himself enjoying his time with Bones’ family. Sipping his drink slowly, Kirk glared at the handsome man talking to his Bones, and the smile that graced his lover’s face only made him hate Ianto Harkness-Jones all the more. Only he, James T. Kirk, was allowed to make the Starfleet doctor smile like that. It didn’t matter to him if he was Bones’ great-grandfather; only he was allowed to make Bones smile that very special smile.
“No need to be so territorial. Everybody can see that Leonard’s heart is yours and yours alone.” The Doctor spoke up as he came to stand beside Kirk and together they watched Leonard talk to with his grandfather Ianto.
“I know that but I still don’t like it.” Kirk was not pouting, he wasn’t.
The Doctor rolled his eyes and muttered under his breath, “Sometimes I can’t help but think it is you who’s related to Jack and not Leonard. But I then remember that you are related to John Hart and it all makes sense again.”
Jack, who had followed the Doctor, shared a look of matching bewilderment with Kirk; they honestly couldn’t see any resemblance between themselves.
“Lenny is a lot like Ianto; his heart belongs only to you. No one else stands a chance.” Jack told Kirk before bouncing off to cuddle into Ianto’s side.
After greeting Jack, Bones studied the two men for a moment and then groaned as he recognized the look in Jack’s eyes and he turned to Ianto. “Please tell me that granddad did not get you pregnant again?” He pleaded with his only sane grandparent, well him and Rory.
Ianto blushed as Jack wrapped his arms around his husband and with a giant grin on his face he proudly informed his grandson, “Sorry Lenny, Ianto and I are once again expecting a child.” Jack kissed Ianto on the cheek before turning his gaze back onto Leonard. “So when are you going to inform James of your gift?”
Bones shifted nervously. “I plan on telling him soon, I just wanted to make sure I don’t scare him away.” He admitted softly.
Jack snorted. “The man didn’t run when the Doctor licked his cheek in greeting! If that didn’t scare him then he can handle you being able to get pregnant.”
Ianto shook his head at Jack. “It’s clear to everybody that he loves you and you love him. I think you should tell him.”
Bones mulled over their words and knew that they had a point; if he and Jim did have a future then he needed to know and soon.
“Are you alright?” Kirk had noticed how quiet Bones had been since his talk with Jack and Ianto and he was worried about his lover.
As the door to their room closed behind them, sealing out the rest of the world, Bones took a deep breath. “There is something I need to tell you, but I’m afraid that you might think I’m a freak.”
“Hey, nothing will ever make me look at you like that. You can tell me anything because I love you and nothing you can say would ever make me feel any differently.” Kirk would not allow Bones to talk about himself like that.
“You wanna bet?” Bones mumbled before he decided to just get it over with. “I can get pregnant.”
Kirk blinked; he could barely believe what he was hearing. “You can get pregnant?”
“Yes, damn it! The TARDIS’ little gift and my granddad Jack’s gene allows men to carry children, but only with the one who is the other half of their soul.” Bones tried not to look Kirk in the eyes; he didn’t want to see the scorn or ridicule or disgust he just knew would be there. He eyed the distance between himself and the door, and wondered how hard it would be to request a transfer to another ship.
“Bones, am I the other half of your soul?” Kirk asked softly and Bones melted, abandoning all thoughts of escape. He could never resist Kirk when he used that tone of voice.
Filled with sudden hope, Bones met those blue eyes he loved so much. “You are.” Bones barely got the words out before he found himself flat on his back on their bed, pinned there by Kirk’s body with the blonde’s mouth firmly attached to his.
Kirk finally pulled away when the need for air forced them apart. “From the moment I met you I’ve dreamed of having a family with you, a true family.” Kirk admitted. He could already picture a little boy or little girl wearing that trademark Bones scowl. And in truth he loved the idea of seeing his Bones pregnant with their child.
“Well then we better get to practicin’,” Bones drawled out.
Full blown lust and love entered Kirk’s eyes. “Practice, oh yeah, I can do practice.” He waggled his eyebrows as he leered down at his lover. “I am so good at practice!” Someday he would get to see his Bones pregnant with their child and that was a day he couldn’t wait for.
Curled up in their temporary bed after a few rounds of love-making Jack lazily ran his hand up and down Ianto’s bare back. “Do you think they’re going to be okay?” he asked softly.
Ianto shifted his head so he could look his husband in his eyes. “I think they’re going to be just fine. There will be rough patches but they’ll make it through. They are this generation’s Jack and Ianto; they’ll get their happy ending. There’s no justice in the universe if they don’t.” Ianto reassured Jack.
“Have I told you lately I love you, Ianto Harkness-Jones?” Jack voice was laced with fondness.
“Yes, but I never get tired of hearing it.” Ianto placed a kiss on Jack’s chest.
“I love you, Ianto.”
“I love you, too, Jack.”
Their bodies tangled together Kirk kept a tight grip on Bones’ waist. “I love you, Leonard McCoy, and I can’t wait to start a family with you.” Kirk whispered in the dark room.
“I love you too; now get some sleep because we have a lot more practicing to do later.” Bones grumbled as he snuggled closer to Kirk’s body.
An exhausted but happy leer crossed Kirk’s handsome face; he was going to enjoy practicing baby-making with Bones.
A joyful song filled the TARDIS as time continued to travel along its rightful path. The Time Lord race would not die out; a little piece of them would continue on until the ends of time. Her beloved Jack and Ianto would never be alone in their immortal lives as they would always have family around them. And soon she would have new little ones to travel with her to see the wonders of the universe.
