timepiececlock: (Uhura Fucking Rocks The Universe)
I feel like I can't write Spock's POV until I get this, and there's something fundamental about the whole thing that is escaping me.

The emotion thing. I've seen the movie more than twice, and I saw all the old movies as a kid, but I just...do not understand the whole emotion/ no emotion thing. Contains spoilers for ST 2009 and probably older canon too. A bit long and babbling. )

Did I miss the memo at the beginning of everything that said to all the fans, "This is what the Vulcan shit is all about?" My questions can be summarized thus:

1. What is this Vulcan shit about?
2. What does that mean for Old TOS Spock?
3. What does that mean for new AU Spock? [as of the end of the movie]
4. Are either Spocks striving to be more or less of this philosophy?

timepiececlock: (Haruhi & Kyon - Tough Love)
For everyone who hasn't yet, if you love funny fanfics and you even mildly enjoyed the Star Trek movie, you really need to read "Four Consequences of the Unexpected and Unlikely Friendship Between James T. Kirk and Nyota Uhura", by [livejournal.com profile] trisfic.

Why is it awesome? There are so many reasons, but mainly, uh, it's a fic all about Kirk and Uhura as teenage girls. I mean "Bros." But more like sisters. With little bits of Spock and Scotty and Chekov in little moments of hilarious awesomeness that I can't quote back because I'd be quoting the entire fanfic. Which you should read. Promptly. Yesterday. THERE IS POETRY. And, um, a silent conversation scene that is just too funny to convey below.

"It's really not that different," Nyota said, prim voice and prim hands laid flat on her knees.
"Are you kidding me? Listen, Betazoid women when they're forty, they have this thing. It's called the Phase. Now, I'm not saying I have or I haven't, but oh my god. Alien life is beautiful. I hear." Jim slurped at his coffee.
"Jim, did you crash a PTA meeting when we were on Betazed?"
"Look, for your information, it was Ambassador Hwxeira herself. I mean, she told me about it. I don't know."
