So. That's smart.
Pardon me for a second, I just need to get this off my chest... NO JOB IS WORTH DYING FOR BY SILICON GLOBBY MONSTER!
Kay, back to watching now...
What Kirk said: "Mr. Spock, I want you to assist Scotty with the pump thing-a-ma-bob."
What he meant: "Lover, I don't want you anywhere near Glopus Killacus."
"I'm expendable, you're not"
(I swear Kirk looks like he's getting turned on when Spock starts quoting the odds of them both getting killed by Glopus Killacus).
Edit 2: "Jim! Jim!" *utterly panicked expression*
Well, someone, not mentioning any names, but his name starts with "S" and ends with "pock", is emotionally compromised at the thought of the Captain being in danger. Just saying...
Edit 3: "Kill it, Captain! Quickly!"
I LOVE THIS SCENE WITH A PASSION.
Okay, okay, I'll stop with the running commentary now.

Summary: "In fact, the only one on the ship scarier than Doctor McCoy is Commander Spock. Which kind of explains why they’re both friends with Kirk, Kirk’s missing a fear glad or something. You know that part of the human psyche that says ‘...maybe I shouldn’t do this, it might lead to an untimely death or, in the very least, some serious ouchies’ yeah, Kirk doesn’t have that."
Notes: Unbeta'd, please forgive any errors.
Notes 2: Thank you kianspo for the title, and dracavia and corcalamus for the summary help and the cheering squad. :)

Summary: "So here they were, their first bridge shift over, locked together in Jim’s new ready room, meeting for the first time, one-on-one, as Captain and First Officer for real, and not because of a field promotion and an extremely unfortunate chain of events, participating in a staring contest."
Notes: Written for the 2012 KiScon zine.
Notes 2: Yes, I know I completely disappeared for awhile and believe me there are reasons, a lot of them. I will make a post about it, promise, but my daughter has a birthday party to go to in about an hour and I don't have time for more than a fly-by posting. In the meanwhile, here's fic, hopefully I'm forgiven for the disappearing act? *sheepish grin*
Special Thanks: to dracavia, silvershadowkit and sandyk199 for the excellent beta work and arminaa for the additional editing.

Summary: ...as shocking as this would be to anyone who knew him, Jim was a mite bit competitive. Just a tad.
Special Thanks: To dracavia for the wonderful, fabulous beta job - she's awesome beyond the telling of it.

...thus cinching Simon Pegg's place as the coolest celebrity to have ever lived, ever.
I owe a bunch of people comments and replies and for that I'm truly sorry. I haven't forgotten about you, promise, I just really have no life to speak of at present. :D
And now the favor I referred to in the subject header... submissions for the KiScon zine are due on Sunday and because I've been so insanely busy with work, I, uh,
only wrote my submission last night (and pulled a really late nighter to do it). The good news, hey, I wrote something, the bad news, I have a little less than two days to get it beta'd, edited and submitted. I swear I'm not normally this much of a flake, but is there anyone who is willing to speed beta for me? On the plus side the story is only 2.5k, on the con side, I speed wrote it at 'way too late and/or early - depending how you look at it - to be cognizant am' thus I'm not promising coherency or even English (i.e. the story is probably closer to gobbledegook). Puh-lease?! You will have my eternal gratitude as well as my undying love and devotion. We're talking Dread Pirate Roberts "As you wish" level type devotion, here.
It was awesome. Really, really enjoyable. I wouldn't mind going to see it again. :D
It had that Whedon special brand of smart,savvy sarcasm tempered with obvious character affection that he does SO WELL (miss Buffy, yes I do *sniff*). I wont give away spoilers or anything but I will say this, I went in expecting to enjoy Iron Man the most, as you do, but I have to say, the Hulk really stole the show. Okay, so maybe I'll give away one little, itty, bitty spoiler.
( Itty bitty spoiler, Ren Faire pictures and news on the dieting front below... )
I just realised, having initiated a new timeline, at some point in the future we're going to have to go back and get the whales again.
That revelation followed the pic he posted of what he's been doing between takes on the set of ST12 while in his trailer:
hey chitown. chill with the sirens k?
@TheRealNimoy @TheRealNimoy yessir no. 1. i'm on my way. hope you had a wonderful weekend. look forward to dinner next weekend. much logic... no. 2.
On a related but unrelated note, just how cool would this have been?
And lastly, though the day nearly over, happy: Easter, Celtic celebration of fertility, Passover, or just general beautiful spring Sunday to each and every one of you on my flist. You are cherished *hugs*.
Here be the link.
Shatner played Capt. James T. Kirk in the NBC television series and in seven films of the franchise.
"It was so successful and had such importance on this culture that continues to this day. I owe my celebrity to that."
Here be the link.
Coppa added, "The wonderful thing about fandom is that you realize you're not alone."
To him I say this: you should spend less time worrying about what people are reading and more time concerned that hardly anyone is reading at all (and those that do should be applauded, not made to feel embarrassed for their choices, you unmitigated douche).
As you can probably tell, this article got me a bit fired up. ;)
I remember when the novel "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" was released people were positively shocked that a book had a higher opening weekend then the blockbuster movie at the time... and that I find just sad. Not that HP out sold the movies, oh no, that made me ecstatic, but that people were so shocked that it did.

I don’t know any twenty-something actors [laughs]. I do think it is likely they will reboot Next Generation some day. I don’t see Star Trek ever ending.
So I thought, hey, let's have some fun and cast this mamma. :D
I vote James McAvoy as a young Picard, who's with me? (<- unoriginal, I know, couldn't resist. :D)
Your list of characters:
Geordi La Forge
Bonus Points: Q, Tasha Yar, Laxwana Troi, Ro Laren (will just skip right over Wesley Crusher, the Martiest Stu of all Marty Stus ever)
And now something to make you smile...

In other news, I really do need to find an icon with just Spock in it, lol. This is the second time I realized that I don't have one, but I forgot to go looking for one after that last time (got the attention span of a gnat, what can I say? ;)). Link me to some great ones, anyone? :D
Star Trek has made an entire world imagine the unimaginable and dream of the unthinkable, from the magical teleports to the glorious tricorders that are able to diagnose any injury or illness or analyze the environment of ships, planets and other structures. Now, Trekkies may be just one step closer to their dream: the Star Trek tricorder has become a reality.
And a pic:
Also, to be entirely fair, the 'Kirk as an intergaltic slut' stigma within Trek fandom has always kind of irked me. It's a bit of a festering wound. I'm a Kirk girl, I admit it, so yes, I find it a bit... distressing, that out of all the man's accomplishments that is what fandom most associates him with. A couple of years ago I even made a post about it, which, to summarize, pretty much stated that if you disregard the times, in TOS, that Kirk flirted to get the crew out of a scrape, or feigned interest to discover whether he had a man who had committed genocide on-board his ship, or he was under the influence of mind-altering tears, the list of his genuine, consenting romantic encounters was actually rather short. Very short. In fact, to elaborate further in a way my post did not, the man only had actual sex twice during the course of three seasons of TOS, and both those times where under dubious conditions (i.e. amnesia + forced marriage, and being forced under threat of death). Don't want to take my word for it? Here is a very awesome piece of meta on the topic.
Edit: Remembered the link to another awesome bit of meta on the subject of J.T.K and misconceptions while I was not-sleeping last night. Also, I wrote an essay on the topic of there being more to Kirk than his penis not too long ago, for anyone interested.
So tonight I was cruising trekmovie.com, as you do, and clicked on the link featuring a trailer of Chris Pine's new movie "People Like Us", which, incidentally, was written by two of the three Star Trek writers, i.e. Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzmen. Most Trek fans on that site seem pretty receptive to the new film, a couple voiced their concerns that it seems rather... geared towards a limited demographic of people, thus I come across this exchange in the comments:

Summary: "His father had died so that Jim may live, thus Jim considered himself honor-bound to live enough for both of them...." or, Jim has plans to celebrate his birthday with his usual flair. Spock stages an intervention.

Author's Notes: Written for dracavia in honor of her birthday. Happy birthday, darling, I hope it's the best one yet. :)
Special Thanks: Much appreciation and hugs go to marlee813 for looking this over for me. She's awesome.
