Two picspams for [livejournal.com profile] startrekland. \o/

I honestly can't pick a favourite TOS character unless you twist my arm, because I love everybody so much that it's absolutely ridiculous. Which is just to say that these two picspams aren't necessarily because Spock and Uhura are my two favourite characters. But on the 8th, I was rewatching The Man Trap in commemoration/celebration, and was reminded of the introduction we get to Uhura and Spock (well, sort of; my introduction to Spock was actually in The Cage, but this is his introduction in terms of the series as it aired, I suppose), and I fell in love all over again. I love how Spock is so awkward and earnest while Uhura is snarky and bemused as she baits him. It's adorable, and I had to picspam it. The second picspam, from XI, is maybe my favourite Spock/Uhura scene (really, they're all tied) in that film. I'm not totally sure I ship them forever… though in a sense I kind of ship Everyone/Everyone in Star Trek, particularly in XI, but I do love their relationship, and I think this scene is most representative of one of the things I love most about it, which Zach described better than I ever could when he said: 'Uhura is almost a canvas onto whom Spock can project the emotion that he is not able to express himself.' And I think that's very true. TOS!Spock grows to a point where his lack of emotion is really a facade: they talk about it in the show and the films like he hasn't got any, but it's clear that his emotions really do run very deeply and over time, he learns how to deal with them in ways that don't involve shutting down and pretending he doesn't feel them at all. But like the Spock we see in The Man Trap, XI!Spock isn't at that point yet: he's still awkward and earnest, a little bit uncomfortable in his own skin and amongst his fellow Starfleet officers, and unsure of how to balance his emotions with his pursuit of logic as the greatest virtue. So anyway. Picspams!

builtofsorrow: (Default)
title: Put a Ring On It
rating: G
word count: ~600
character(s)/pairing(s): Gretchen Berg, Sylar. Implied/Assumed Sylar/Peter & Gretchen/Claire.
summary: Just like honesty needs a little plus, sometimes fate needs a little push. And no one can ever say Sylar doesn't appreciate the wisdom of the classics.
author’s notes: Clichéd title is clichéd.

[livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics is about 60% responsible for the fact that this exists (& I mean that in the best of ways!), mainly because today is her half-birthday, which calls for more celebration than I can manage from the opposite side of the continent (D:). So at the very least, it called for an extension into fic of our fangirly e-mails. (We'll celebrate for real[sies] next month when you're here! ♡)

Sylar is still Sylar because I don't think he can ever go back to being Gabriel Gray, which I feel is important to note, but this is set in a future where he's not, you know, killing everyone. That said, this isn't really an AU fic as much as a prequel to The Most Logical Future for Our Heroes, and mainly that future involves lots of Sylar making pancakes, everyone being Awesome & Happy, and some other things that don't pertain to this fic so I won't mention them right now. (It also, in my own mind, involves a New York Senate that's made up of adults who keep their promises.) Anyway.

builtofsorrow: (dw | jack | oh captain my captain)
title: This Ship Could Be a Little More Sonic
rating: PG
word count: ~1,700
character(s)/pairing(s): Janice Rand, Jim Kirk, Leonard McCoy, Gaila, & a bit of Scotty. Implied/Assumed Kirk/McCoy.
summary: Kirk has the Greatest Costume Idea Ever for Halloween. Small details like convincing Bones of this aren't going to get in his way. (Maybe.)
author’s notes: I wish I had an excuse for this especially the last section Idon'tevenknow. I did eat some chocolate earlier? Can I plead insanity by homework? Suffice to say: this is rather cracky. Except for the part where James T. Kirk is totally a Whovian, with the action figures & sonic screwdriver to prove it. That's just a fact.


'Please don't take this as a sign that I'm asking, but even wondering why you need any costumes whatsoever, not to mention acquiring them for you, is so far out of my job description that I can't even think of a proper metaphor to describe it. But I'm sure it would involve a different galaxy.' )

builtofsorrow: (st | this simple feeling (ot3))
title: Well, There Goes the Neighborhood
rating: G
word count: ~1,000
character(s)/pairing(s): Spock POV, with Bones, Kirk, Spock Prime, & Uhura. Assumed Spock/Uhura.
summary: In which Spock is illogically annoyed by the Ambassador, Jim finds out something no one wanted to tell him about his alternate self, and the Ambassador is amused.
author’s notes: Because long weekends are clearly not for homework, I watched The Wrath of Khan last night, wherein it is revealed that TOS!Kirk also beat the Kobayashi Maru by cheating thinking originally. Only, you know, he got a commendation for it. Which I actually already knew, but. This obviously had to be written. (Also, I realize I've exaggerated the extent of Vulcans' "emotionlessness"; it was done purposefully.) Title from Leonard Nimoy's Highly Illogical.

For [livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics, who's managed to do a stellar job of surviving the first two weeks of The Semester of Six Literature Courses and clearly deserves something for it. (I seriously tried to make it another installment of Little Navigators, but alas!) Only fourteen weeks to go! &hearts!


'Well, we can't all give each other commendations for cheating,' Spock says (with the utmost respect, of course), in-between bites of vegetables. )
