Prompt: Academy fic, love as war, as much of Jim in them as possible
Summary: Winona is surprised to find herself in a Command track strategy class. What's more surprising is how she got there.
Notes: Written for echoinautumn as part of my personal holiday drabble series. This was my first time writing these characters and it was so much fun to try to see Jim in each of them. I hope you see what I saw, or even something that I didn't. Also, I researched and couldn't find Winona's maiden name, so I've just made one up for her here.
Winona Maris isn't entirely sure how she ended up in the Command Officer Strategics class, but she blames her Starfleet advisor. She's on the science track, planning on making officer in three years, and she doesn't have time for this sort of nonsense.
