MCKIRK MIRRORVERSE GENDERBENT AU
They’re killers. Leonore prefers the term assassin, but Jamie knows. They’re just killers, cold and fast and efficient, with blood all over their hands and their clothes.
Some people call Leonore The Doctor, for the surgical precision of every shot she takes. Jamie just calls her Bones, because she’s good at breaking those and they needed a code name once anyway. Jamie doesn’t need a nickname; Kirk is scary enough on its own. Bones calls her Captain, because she’ll always be the one giving the orders. It’s also highly ironical, a sweet inside joke they share, because Jamie is everything but the captain in bed.
They also share bloody kisses and an empty house in Bangkok where they can retreat to when things get a little too much—when the higher-ups start getting annoyed with Jamie and she wakes up to a gun pointed at her head, and has to flee her apartment in San Fran; when someone digs just enough into Bones’ past to discover she was once married to a man named Joss Darnell and that there’s a little boy somewhere in Georgia that has the same hazel eyes as her—, they share a mattress and the heat of their bodies and something they will never call love; they share that passion for the sound a bullet makes when it leaves the barrel of the gun and an infinite knowledge of human anatomy and they share targets and missions and sometimes lunch and shirts.
Jamie knows there’s little to no chance that she’ll make it to thirty, and she frantically hopes they won’t share death.
We are outnumbered, outgunned. There’s no way we survive if we attack first. You brought me here because I speak Klingon, then let me speak Klingon.
