Notes: A mere thank you does not even begin to express my immense gratitude for my super awesome beta, shingo_the_pest, for really going above and beyond. I am basically a n00b to this fandom, and I can say pretty confidently that I wouldn’t have been able to finish this without you—from your detailed editing, ideas, hand-holding, and friendship. AND you even created the beautiful artwork for this story! ♥ ♥ ♥! Thank you also to emmypenny, for putting together such a gorgeous mix! It really captures the mood of this story perfectly, and the cover art is also just lovely! It was an absolute pleasure working with you! ♥ ♥ ♥!

Also, I should confess that this story includes the majority of the clichés in this fandom (though I never get tired of them and hope you guys don’t either!), and I’ve also borrowed a couple ideas from Lost and Good Will Hunting.

Summary: Jim and Bones do not have a promising beginning to their friendship. But some things are just meant to be. Written for the 2010 startrekbigbang.

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival”

--C.S. Lewis
