Sometimes I Get Scared
Sometimes I get scared that I’m not as good a writer as my friends and family tell me I am; I’ve been away from school for a year and even the praise of my teachers which was once so hard-won has become suspect with time. Getting rejected from USC didn’t help (even though it’s practically an honor to be rejected by their screenwriting program). Sometimes I get really...

Anonymous asked: can you recommend any spirk fan fiction for us new fans? :)
thylaa: how unsubtle are you about your homosexuality on a scale of one to star trek the original series
abcdefarachnid: Just think about how sometimes at night, Spock prime sits down at night with his cup of tea or whatever and chuckles lightly to himself they have to go get the whales
Anonymous asked: I wasn't really a Star Trek fan before, mostly because no one I knew had any insight to it then the 2009 one came out and i was squealing with misplaced fangirling because I love anything to do with intense CG effect but then I saw what ppl mean by 'spirk' and I was slowly getting into it then 2013 came along and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go down with the ship without a...
Anonymous asked: Thank you for being supportive of the next generation of fans, and not doing the whole "You aren't real fans blah blahblah" shpiel. Us lovely new spirk shippers appreciate people like you! Thanks again~
dasheroyjackson replied to your post: Affectionately laughing at all the new Kirk/Spock fans resulting from the new movie. it’s nice to see old fans being so nice to the new ones. oftentimes this sort of post becomes super sarcastic and elitist. you’re great. :) Thanks. The thing is Star Trek has been around so long that even some of the “old fans” are “new fans” by...

They’re all just so cute and enthusiastic. Hi, welcome to the ship. Yes, Kirk and Spock are a thing. I know, it’s adorable and exciting. We’re so glad we can share with you the ship that literally invented the term “slash.” If any of you are seriously craving some t’hy’la/space husbands in the wake of the new movie I highly encourage you to watch the...

1) Past me was a fucking idiot. 2) Physical stuff is overrated. Like seriously, why did I need a memento of the Senior Class Picnic? Five years later and am I like “wow I’m really glad I kept this rock from my childhood?” Okay kind of, history is important, even if I would have NEVER given that event a second thought otherwise. But it’s taking up too much space so into the trash it goes. God am I...

Going on another Hiatus I think.
Star Trek is the best.
Every time Spock raises his eyebrow or Kirk fights some guy in a cheesy lizard/gorilla suit or DeForest Kelley and Nichelle Nichols JUST PLAIN EXIST, it reminds me that the world is an awesome place full of BAMFs and really all my problems can be solved by remembering that I’m awesome, and don’t believe in the no-win scenario.

I got it because chocolate is the only thing that can get a Vulcan drunk and today is a Star Trek day.

I’m so fucking confused. Did they or DID THEY NOT introduce her as a capable captain in her own right in like her first 2 lines of dialogue, and yet he keeps ordering her to stay back? Not that the gameplay is giving her much of a chance to be of help. Why does Kirk keep ignoring the fact that she keeps prioritizing the rescue of the Helios device over her father and telling her...
I'm going to rent the new Star Trek game today.
On the one hand— the Gorn!! :D They’re back, oh, my inner Trekker is so fucking pleased at the ToS reference!! The commercial with Shatner was hilarious. On the other hand— Godfucking dammit you have NO IDEA HOW SICK AND FUCKING TIRED I AM of shitty Rescue the Princess story lines! Which is what this has been advertised to have! IT’S NOT THE 1960s ANYMORE AND EVEN THEN...

Kind of a shitty morning so far. :( [[MORE]]Last night the back driver’s side tire on my car blew. Apparently it was flat, but I didn’t notice at 1am at night in the surprise snow-flurry I had to drive home (from my girlfriend’s nice, cosy house, that I would have totally stayed at if I didn’t have work in the morning and no uniform) in. No big deal, you know, shit like...
tarzanekingoffemales: Do NOT drive through Boston or take the subway right now. The emergency radio is buzzing with more possible bombs. Please spread this everywhere you can to let your friends and family members know. It could save a life. I’m so glad my sister is ok.
