A KSM fanmix. Because you know it took years.
Years of them gazing after each other, years of sharing secrets, years of alternating jealousy, until they finally got things figured out.
Here’s the mix for the day they finally sat down and fell in love with each other, properly.
Open Your Eyes // Dreamers (Our Nature) // Counting Stars // Winter Winds // Medicine // Feel Again // Chariot // Bottle it Up // Lizstomania // You’ll Always be my Best Friend // Shadow of the Day
Anonymous asked: Sooo you can tell a lot about a person from their fingernails. Character nail headcanons?
What a precious and oddly specific little question you’ve posed there, Anon.
I can’t promise I’ll think of something for everyone, but here goes. (Spenser’s better at headcanons maybe I’ll make her add to this later for your enjoyment.)
Jim bites his nails when he’s nervous, but he tries to make up for this by sitting daintily and filing them at the end of each shift.
Uhura paints just about everyone’s nails on the ship, if they ask. She’s not great at doing her own, though, and lets Chapel paint them instead.
Chapel puts a lot of effort into the design on Uhura’s nails, because she’s not allowed to wear any polish or paint on her own. Because, y’know, it could chip off during operations or something. And no one wears gloves in the future that’s cool.
Chekov lets Sulu paint his, sometimes, as long as the polish is clear. Because he hates to see it chip. He likes things to be perfect, and Sulu quickly grew tired of bringing a bottle of clear polish up to the bridge every day, for ‘repairs.’
Bones has to keep his short for this same reason. Spock has learned (after nearly an hour of ‘professional medical advice’ and intermittent laughter from Bones) that humans do not typically see their fingernails as functional, but decorative. So, he files them down and considers his feline ancestry. There are so many Vulcan tasks he would fail without them. ”Good thing you’re here, then,” Bones tells him.
Wow would you look at that I guess I was in a Sponesy mood this evening.
Thank you, Anon, this was a fun time.
Question with 4 notes
theeyebrowofspock asked: So you said you could go on for ages talking about trans* Saavik. It's been a few years since I saw any of the movies with Saavik in them. Would you mind talking to me about them at some point?
I don’t mind at all! I will talk to the entire world about trans Saavik.
Personally, I’m for FtM Saavik, but I’m down with MtF if it is well supported. I just love the idea in general, so I can’t afford to be picky. But let’s go with FtM Saavik. I’m going to use they/them pronouns to avoid confusion with the transition process okay wow… Deep breath, and:
When we meet Saavik, they are referred to as ‘Mister’ several times, in quick succession. The term ‘Mister’ is not used on The Original Series to address female crew-members (although I headcanon Uhura and Sulu calling each other that because their friendship is super cute, and they can get away with it because they’re the same rank. But that’s a story for another day.)
We also receive the exposition that Saavik is a close family-friend of Spock’s. I like to think that, when they were young, they were rejected from their family. Because it is not logical to feel anything, let alone to identify as a different gender. Naturally, Amanda would be furious, and would talk Sarek into accepting them into the family.
That brings me to another point I’m fond of. Their name. Throughout TOS (all the way until we meet Valeris in the final movie, if I remember correctly) feminine Vulcan names begin with the T’ convention (T’Pring, T’Pol, so on). Masculine Vulcan names tend to follow the pattern of S__k (Sarek, Spock, Sybok, Surak, Selek, so on). So, Saavik selected a typically masculine for themself. Their presence in the household may have contributed to Sybok’s abandonment of modern Vulcan culture, as well as Spock’s understanding of emotion. In The Wrath of Khan, Saavik and Spock converse briefly about emotions reflecting humanity - this leads Spock to accepting his feelings for Jim (if you’re into that sort of thing, the subtext is readily available), and to Saavik becoming more confident, until they are able to cry at Spock’s funeral. Saavik feels comfortable talking to Jim because they follow Spock’s example. The two are certainly close, and share a sort of ‘outsider’ position, which they have run away to Starfleet to erase.
I also do my best to contribute the re-casting of Saavik to their transition process. The first actress is decidedly more feminine in appearance (I think both of them are gorgeous don’t misunderstand me, okay.) And with the change in actresses supporting the transition in gender, Saavik would not become pregnant after helping a younger Spock through pon farr on the Genesis planet. And they would be thrilled about this, too.
I probably forgot 2992157 things, but this was getting a bit long anyway, huh? But yes I will gladly talk to you and the rest of the galaxy about trans Saavik. What do you think? Did I bore your Vulcan ears off?
Also my completely perfect bffl and I are using the tag ‘Trans Saavik 2014’ to collect our thoughts and whatever graphics or headcanons or art or whatever we come up with. You’re welcome to stalk through it and are encouraged to add to it. Hope you enjoyed :)

You saved the ship. You saved us all. Don’t you remember?

the real question is how many times did Graham Chapman miss the opportunity to utilise the phrase “no shit, Sherlock”
I like to imagine that, whenever Gray asked him stuff he’d answer “elementary, my dear Chapman”.
This photoset uGH
Beat-up and tired and dirty with a ripped shirt and the most satisfied look on his face good lord
Let me die
He is just the most gorgeous creature
#And this episode while super cracky shows off just how well-developed his personality is #He loves literature and sex and pretty flowers and the odd good old-fashioned knock-down drag-out scrap in the dirt #He’s a handsome charming hopeless romantic who nevertheless got picked on at the academy for being a giant nerdy bookworm #let me tell you how three-dimensional he is
Yes all of this
Captain Kirk doesn’t mean to misgender Saavik.He calls every crewman “Mister,” be they man, woman, or neither.
But after years of deliberate, malicious misgendering, the title still stings.
I know it’s an alternate timeline in the reboot and a lot of things are different, but really, there is no logical reason for the absence of Spock’s blue eyeshadow.
