star trek au in which intrepid starfleet captain james t. kirk is captured on a gladiatorial planet and kept alive to fight in the glorious games. while there, he meets the half-vulcan, half-human spock, who’s been captured since the destruction of vulcan. together they form an unexpected telepathic bond that allows them to fight side by side undefeated, but not without their share of broken bones and bruises
and leonard mccoy, who jim nicknames bones while the doctor is tending to his shattered arm, is the poor, captive bastard who tries to keep them alive despite their best attempts to trump his medical skills
and eventually they lead a glorious rebellion against the planet’s vicious gaming elite
i just want spock and jim fighting together like a single, fluid entity
don’t look at me
headcanon that after stid, before jim wakes up, spock is pretty much glued to jim’s bedside and even when he isn’t he is in a constant state of repressed emotional meltdown, which leaves uhura to try and cope all on her own, feeling like she’s just biding time until the day when spock wakes up and realises he’s been in love with his captain for months.
she frequently goes and spends time on the enterprise helping with the refits to take her mind off things, usually down in engineering because she took a few modules in it at the academy, and besides, scotty is fun and easy to get on with and plays loud cheerful music to drown out his own thoughts and he doesn’t mind when she dances a little too enthusiastically and sings along a little too loudly.
and scotty never ever asks her about spock unless she brings him up first, and neither of them talk about jim, and if his heart skips a beat when, three weeks in, she gives the first bright genuine smile he’s seen since that fateful day, as she dances and spins across the walkway, well, he doesn’t mention that either.
So I woke up at five in the morning, made the hour long trip to my school in the next town over, and there were two people in my classroom.
The other person being one of the girls who take the van with me.
We waited two hours and no teachers showed up. No one walked by to see if there were students, no one told us there wasn’t going to be class.
Now we’re waiting for the students from the other school get off in three hours.
For once I’m not happy about not having class.
friendly reminder that vulcans evolved from cats
jim sends this friendly reminder to the crew of the enterprise literally every week. ‘friendly reminder that first officer spock evolved from a cat.’ ‘friendly reminder not to pet first officer spock the wrong way.’ ‘friendly reminder that first officer spock has sensitive kitty paw pads.’
