Rec: If I Had to Keep You by klmeri

Fandom: Star Trek: Into Darkness
Characters: Leonard McCoy, James T. Kirk
Rating: Teen
Length: 19,129 words
Categories: Post-Canon, Friendship

Summary: Leonard is not enthusiastic about his new roommate. Jim, on the other hand, is ecstatic. Or maybe manic, which is more than slightly disturbing to Leonard. That, along with a little PTSD, concerned friends, late-night confessions and an unusual pet put McCoy and Kirk on the road to recovery in the aftermath of Marcus and Khan.

Notes: Klmeri is good at humorous story, adding layer of seriousness that add lots to zie characterization, and I was surprised how discomforting some scenes where Kirk and McCoy deal with being roommates and the mental health of Kirk. I found that this really fit canon for the new film series a lot better than other stories I read in this fandom.
