I thought I could make my home on Enterprise. Then I realized that you’re my home. So I came back. Everything, always, came back around to you. I’m just sorry it took me so long to see it.

Star Trek: Discovery – Into the Forest I Go | 1×09

Consider this: Stamets and Culber meeting for the first time when they reach for the same mushroom hors d’oeuvres at a symposium on the medicinal uses of fungi at Andoria. 

I can just picture it. Stamets asks Culber if he loves mushrooms and, not at all realizing what he’s getting into, he answers “Yes! I love them!”

He is then regaled with a truly excessive amount of information about mushrooms by Stamets, who is just SO excited to talk about mushrooms. 

Culber is too nice to stop him. He has only two thoughts as Stamets talks on and on (he almost immediately tunes out the mushroom talk): OMG KILL ME NOW, and Well, at least he’s cute… 

We all know Paul “Shroom Boi” Stamets has no game whatsoever but only fungi trivia. So I believe Culber decided he was cute and went for it and Stamets never knew what hit him.

“Hugh Culber decides what he wants and goes for it” turned out to be a very accurate description of how they met. 

“I told him to stifle it or sit somewhere else. Instead, he sat right next to me. And he’s been there ever since.”

Otherwise known as Hugh knows what he wants and he fucking goes for it

I’m seeing some Culber and Stamets characterization attempts floating around, which is great! More fics, more headcanons! Love it!

What I don’t like is falling into the trap of showing Stamets as the genius and Culber as the supporting partner. i understand it’s an easy dynamic to fall into, especially when one of them is a supporting character and one is a main.

People do have this dynamic of course, and it doesn’t have to be bad, but I don’t think it necessarily has to be this way. It kind of erases Hugh Culbers achievements in Starfleet. It’s quite a normative, and a bit… dated, approach to relationships.

They are both successful, both brilliant and I think they are both nerds equally supporting of each other. 

Hugh is a commander, he out-ranks his boi. He killed Geordi to get the rank. (You know, because the command test always required the tng crew to kill Geordi) Show the man some darn respect.

He’s actually a Lieutenant Commander, but Paul is a Lieutenant so yeah – Hugh outranks him.

This is also really annoying me as well, honestly – Hugh’s a genius too and I don’t like that he’s falling into the stereotype of “supportive SO” rather than genius in his own right. I wish he was the CMO, hopefully that happens soon.
