Of Head Wounds and Horses
Of course.

Of course their shuttle crashed, and of course they lost most of their survival gear in the following explosion, and of course they're on a pre-warp world with what looks like a dozen heavily-armed natives on horseback coming straight at them at a dead-gallop.

“It’s okay, Bones, just follow my lead,” Jim says in that obnoxiously cheerful way only he could ever have, as the natives surround them with the tips of a dozen very-ugly looking spears pointed at them. Normally, Leonard would feel a bit better about Jim taking charge, but the man has an ugly head wound and probably a concussion, and so his captainly skills leave a lot to be desired right now.

Like diplomacy.

“Hi, guys. How’s it goin’?” Jim asks the man who is the leader of the group, judging from the tall crest of his helmet.

Yeah. They’re gonna die alright. Leonard makes his peace with this.

The natives talk in angry consternation for a few minutes. They don’t understand a word of it—the universal translator was one of the many, many casualties of the crash.

The leader of the men dismounts from his horse, head cocked to look at them curiously. He orders something, and the men shift, their spears no longer pointed directly at them.
He takes off his helmet, asking something, but Leonard is only half-listening, because this man could be his twin.

“Holy shit, Bones!” Jim says. “He looks just like you!”

Well yeah, if he had long hair, a beard, and hadn’t bathed in weeks.

The man repeats something in his incomprehensible language. He frowns as he realizes that they have no idea what he’s saying, then places a hand on his chest. “Éomer,” he says firmly. He gestures at the men around him. “Rohirrim.”

“Leonard McCoy,” Leonard says, echoing the gesture. “Jim Kirk,” he adds for Jim’s benefit, as the Captain is increasingly unsteady.

Éomer nods as if understanding, and whistles. A horse with no rider obediently trots forward, and Leonard realizes that this man means for them to mount it and follow them.

“I like horses, Bones,” Jim says. “Do you like horses?”

“Yeah, Jim,” Leonard says as he pulls the other man up in front of him on the horse. “I like them just fine.”

Hopefully Spock would get them out of this soon.

The image of Spock riding up on a unicorn singing "Here I Come to Save the Day" just popped into my head.

BRB, need more caffeine.

Re: Of Head Wounds and Horses
So, uh, this is eerily similar to my as-yet-unwritten ST/LotR crossover. Because Bones meeting Eomer is epic.

Crazy awesome, m'dear. :)
