So, this is a sequel of sorts to 'If You Give Jim Kirk a Starship'. They're inspired by the Laura Numeroff book series 'If You Give (Some Absolutely Adorable Animal) a (Yummy Sweet Treat)'. My favorite is 'If You Give a Pig a Pancake'. That is the cutest pig I have ever seen in my entire life!
I actually wasn't gonna post this until much later today, but I finished it pretty fast and I got a little impatient. :)
Thanks to everyone who reviewed/favorited my Kirk story! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who enjoyed it.
Oh, and to The Wolf's Shadow- I totally love your 'if you give Spock some chocolate' idea. But that will not be in my next story. The Spock version will be 'If You Give Spock Some Logic'. However, I totally decided that I will be writing a story in which Kirk tries to get Spock to eat some chocolate using a sort of Green Eggs and Ham type theme (because, apparently, I'm on some sort of converting children's books into Star Trek stories kick). I have it pretty much planned out in my head, now I just have to write it. I think it should be done by Monday. :)
Now, on to McCoy's story! I love McCoy. I think I might like this story better than my Kirk one.
If you give McCoy a hypo, he'll need a patient to go with it.
"Quit your crying."
But, McCoy's patient will be unlikely to cooperate.
"Where on earth do you think you're going?"
"I have to get back to the bridge."
There will, almost certainly, be an unexpected complication.
"Do you hear some kind of high pitched ringing?"
"It's a side affect!"
This will probably be followed by an even larger unexpected complication.
"Captain, an unknown ship has appeared and they are targeting their phasers on us."
Annoyed, McCoy will start to get snarky.
"Doctor McCoy, don't you think you should return to sickbay?"
"Keep talking and we'll see which one of us is gonna need to be in sickbay."
Someone, most likely a poor red-shirted Ensign, will be killed in an attack on the ship.
"Is there anything you can do, Doctor?"
"No. He's dead, Jim."
After that, McCoy will feel the need to argue, illogically, about emotions.
"Of course they're not acting logically, you green-blooded hobgoblin! They're acting out of anger!"
"A reaction, Doctor, I am sure you are quite familiar with."
McCoy will be asked to do a job outside his area of expertise.
"Bones, I need you to help Spock. See if you can find a way to intercept their weapons system."
"Jim, I'm a doctor, not a computer hacker!"
But McCoy will most likely succeed and then proceed to feel smug about it.
"Bet you didn't think I knew how to work any of those logical machines, did you?"
"I did have my doubts, Doctor."
During the climactic action, someone will inevitably get hurt.
"Let me take a look at that."
"It's just bruised. It's not as bad as it looks."
McCoy will head back to sickbay, where his hypos await.
"I don't want to hear it."
Because if you give McCoy a hypo, he has a patient to go with it.
Oh, McCoy and his hyposprays. Haha.
Anyways, I hoped you liked it. Don't forget to send any new story ideas or suggestions my way! I want to write what you want to read.
And check back tomorrow (or maybe later on today) for 'If You Give Spock Some Logic'.
