I need more time. Well, free time. I need time to work on two fics (well, right now I'm focusing on two) in the two different fandoms in which I have currently found myself subsumed: Star Trek
(2009) and Supernatural
Of course, I'm also running around reading all sorts of fics by other people and just generally feeling fannish and overwhelmed. I'll get back to my other loves -- the DC universe and I will never truly be parted, for example; ours is a forever love -- but in the meantime, I'm feeling all giddy and needing to go see Star Trek
again. It had been months since I'd gone to a movie in a theatre, and now I just want to see this one again and again while it's on the big screen.
(That opening sequence? It made me cry. And I know it did the same for at least four other people at work, two of whom are men.)
I love that the K/S fandom is experiencing such rejuvenation. And aside from a few things, I loved the movie. (One of those things? What is
it with J.J. Abrams and mysterious, giant red balls?) However, the whole Spock/Uhura relationship bothered me, and not because I'm a K/S slasher. (Well, not only.) Would Spock -- SPOCK, people -- really have an affair with his student? And would he let her force his hand and reassign her just so she could be on his ship? Would he have kissed her on the transporter pad? Really
Still, there is much joy to be had in this new reboot of the dynamic between Kirk and Spock, and much to write about when it comes to this Kirk's background, because having his father die at birth and that asshole of a stepfather abusing him -- as I am convinced he does) has to have made Kirk a more complicated character.
Also, as I wrote that last paragraph, I had the strongest case of déjà vu. Is there a fanfic out there with Kirk and an abusive stepfather, or is it just déjà vu? Huh.
Anyway, one day soon, I will post a fic. demon_faith
, you know one of them will be for you. Mwah!
