Anonymous said: Jim finds out Bones is really talented at a lot of things. Like, maybe Bones is an exceptional cook, or plays an instrument, or he speaks more than one language, can recite poetry off the top of his head, is a really good singer, can out-argue anyone including Spock if he really wants to, I don't know, I just see a lot of fics where Jim is good at everything and Bones is a brilliant doctor, yes, but that's about it.
Let me tell you a few things I believe to be true about Leonard McCoy.
- His mama taught him how to cook and she did a damn fine job of it and no matter what time of the day just give him a grocery store and a stove and he will make your heart and stomach sing. Not just Southern foods either, although who doesn’t like crawfish?
- This man gives a captivating presentation. If you think Jim Kirk is a charming speech giver you haven’t seen anything yet. Leonard has had to give medical conference after medical conference, especially after his spinal graft work. He knows how to keep an audience engrossed—the accent helps as well.
- The guy might be a cantankerous old fool but his diplomatic theory papers never failed to amaze his lecturers. You have to remember that Leo is an utter altruist; he looks at every situation and thinks how can I make it better. Which means he’s quite the clever diplomat. It just falls a little by the wayside in practice.
- Also, while we’re talking about talents, his legendary hands not only make him a great surgeon but he also makes an excellent masseuse, the man to work with dough and also a fantastic lover.
Leonard might thinks he’s no more than just an old country doctor, but we know better.
