“On Tuesday we’ll be having another chess tournament. Given Spock’s uninterrupted fifty-three week winning streak, he has agreed to play blindfolded and without rooks, bishops, or queens. As always, participation is compulsory.”

Kirk over comms

Spock: Playing? With a reef blower….? That’s the most childish thing I’ve ever heard of.

Spock: Playing? With a reef blower….? That’s the most childish thing I’ve ever heard of.
Kirk: But it’s fun.

Kirk: I don’t want to hurt your feelings, Spock.

Kirk: I don’t want to hurt your feelings, Spock.
Spock: Well, I don’t have any feelings, Jim.

Kirk: We’re playing Scrabble. It’s a nightmare.

Kirk: We’re playing Scrabble. It’s a nightmare.
Bones: Scrabble? Scrabble’s great.
Kirk: Not when you’re playing with Spock, it’s not. He puts words like “iridium”. And I put “pig”.

Kirk: Spock, do an analysis.

Kirk: Spock, do an analysis.
Spock: Analysis of what?
Kirk: I don’t know! That’s just something we say, and then you make it all better!

Spock [after listening to Kirk’s entire plan]: and then we all die.

Spock [after listening to Kirk’s entire plan]: and then we all die.
Kirk: Well, that’s one point of view
Spock: That is not a point of view, that is a fact.

Jim: So let’s just keep it light and breezy, see where it goes

Jim:So let’s just keep it light and breezy, see where it goes
Spock:Totally. Yeah. So how do we keep it light and breezy?
Spock:I know. A comprehensive set of rules.
Jim: How am I attracted to you?
Jim: Doesn’t matter. I am. Go.

isitanylittlewonder:

I have often attempted to imagine myself in Spock’s position in moments like these, when Kirk touches him like this, but I’ve only now come to the conclusion that what I imagined was wrong.

See, with humans, being touched intimately is exciting, it alights your senses, makes you feel alive. You tingle. It takes your breath away.

But think about pon farr. Every 7 years of an adult male’s life, his blood boils. It gets so bad, in fact, that without physical intimacy, it can overwhelm and kill him. In The Search for Spock, when the teenage Spock was on Genesis and had just reached pon farr. He was shaking, his blood boiling, and Saavik came in and touched him. And he stopped. So in Vulcans, physical touches don’t excite; they calm.

Every time Kirk has ever touched Spock, he didn’t tingle, his breath wasn’t taken away, he didn’t get excited; He was soothed, his breath returned, his nerves subsided. It was helpful, certainly, when he was recovering from his mind meld with a murderous machine and Kirk touched him. It brought him down to earth, he was able to focus.

He probably wouldn’t be able to even understand humans’ obsession with intimacy knowing how it affects them. Such a passionate race, hot-blooded and illogical. Humans are not Vulcans.

Kirk and Spock really are a case of opposites attract. And they complement each other perfectly.

Maybe I should point out this gif is reversed. But since creating it I’ve gotten the feeling the Spirk fandom doesn’t care the least.
Also, good stuff this. Good stuff.

Kirk: I wasn’t THAT drunk last night.

Kirk: I wasn’t THAT drunk last night.
Bones: You were flirting with Spock.
Kirk: So? He’s my boyfriend.
Bones: You asked him if he was single.
Bones: And then cried when he said he wasn’t.
