Summary:Jim's had easier summers than this - the rest of Europe being subjected to German Occupation, America refusing to get itself involved, flying with the RAF to try and stop the Luftwaffe from destroying them and ultimately Germany from invading Britain, and falling in love with his best friend - but he wouldn't be Jim if he went for the easy option, would he.

Notes: Oh GOD it's over :D. This is the culmination of prodding and poking by Kim and Gem about me writing a Big Bang about Jim Kirk flying Spitfires during the Battle of Britain, many cups of tea and bars of chocolate, lots of whining on my front for how big this was getting and then the kick up the backside from Kim, Gem and Alice to make me keep going, lots of hours spent in the library devouring books on the Battle of Britain, and lots of studious procrastination from uni work :) This wouldn't have happened without the aid of so many of you it's almost unbelievable, the love and support in this fandom is amazing :D Most of all, I'd like to thank:

[livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones  - for Word Wars and encouragement, I wouldn't have kept going if it weren't for you awesome people that make the comm the place to be :)
[livejournal.com profile] laughinggas13  - for many hours squeeing / ranting about our respective WW2 AUs, sharing of research, and always being so helpful and awesome :)
[livejournal.com profile] iantosgal  - for always being there with support and ideas, and generally being a BAMF :)
[livejournal.com profile] suddensmiles  - There is no way I can even begin to say how much you have done to get this presentable. You put up with my horrific grammar, my mauling of the English language and my inability to write for more than a page without mucking up the basic rules of grammar. The hours you spent mauling this to death so that it can be presented to the outside world is something I will always be grateful :) Added to that the research that you did for me, the random conversations via e-mail, and the sheer BAMFery that you display means that I am for ever in your debt :) *squishes you*
[livejournal.com profile] sororexitium  - BB, this is all your fault :P THANK YOU for making me stop saying I wanted to write this and making me actually go out and write this, for being there to randomly rant with about history, to squee with about things that hadn't been written but sounded cool in my head, for comforting me when the magical idea wouldn't work on paper, for breaking my writer's block by chatting away, for making me realise what things needed changing, for reminding me that plotlines should be tied off and not left hanging, and for being the most BAMFiest of BAMFs in the history of BAMFs :D Quite frankly, this wouldn't have been written without you :)

And everyone who gave me the support to get this written :D

Disclaimer: Yes, I own these characters, that's why I'm a penniless student writing these ideas on the internet and not putting them in the sequel ... :D
