Can we just imagine Percy taking a nap with his head on Nico’s lap while Nico is watching or reading something with his fingers sliding through Percy’s hair. Now imagine Nico looking at his peaciful face and smiling, imagine him pressing his lips on Percy’s and whispering “I love you” because he just couldn’t resist and then blushing when Percy whispered back “I love you too”
Master of Masters (MoM):So. Who lost it? I’m not mad. I just want to know.
Gula:I did. I lost it.
MoM:No. No, you didn’t. Ira?
Ira:Don’t look at me. Look at Aced.
Aced:What?! I didn’t lose it.
Ira:Huh. That’s weird. How'd you even know it was missing?
Aced:Because it’s supposed to be right in front of us and it’s not!
Aced:No, it’s not!
Luxu:If it matters, probably not... Ava was the last one to read it.
Ava:Liar! I don’t even read that crap!
Luxu:Oh really? Then what were you doing by the desk in the library earlier?
Ava:I use the ruler to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, Luxu!
Gula:Alright, let's not fight. I lost it, let me pay for it, Master-
MoM:No. Who lost it?
Ira:[whispering] Master, Invi's been awfully quiet...
[cue Foretellers arguing over each other]
MoM:[aside] I lost it. The last page said there'd be a traitor so I ripped it in order to find out who. I predict ten minutes from now, they’ll be at each other’s throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
So I actually had this strange and
wondrous dream the other night, and I will attempt to convey it here with as
much accuracy as possible.
William Shatner, in all his
present day age and adorableness, was on this movie set, and I kind of just
knew that they were making another Star Trek movie with the TOS actors. There
was very much the feel that that this was it: the next TOS movie, and
Nichelle Nichols and Walter Koenig were going to be in it and everything. It was a
super happy feeling, and Shatner was wearing something reminiscent of the red
starfleet uniform but it was in a dark gray and more sci-fi looking. I got the
idea that there was a lull in the filming because Shatner was sitting down alone
talking to a random interviewer, the set and lights kind of lingering behind
him. I don’t remember/don’t know what the interviewer was asking him, but it
was obvious that he was happy and kind of excited, like “Yay, another Star
Trek film!” but there was also this feeling of innocent contentment and
wisdom. Like he knew – like everyone knew – that this was where he was
supposed to be. And then as he was talking, a door opened behind him where the
set ended (basically, a door that led off stage where lighting technicians and
crew could go back and forth) and Leonard Nimoy stepped out. It was the way
Nimoy had looked before he died but healthier, and his hair was cut short (like around 2009). I
don’t think he was wearing glasses, and his clothes were very simple but
Vulcanish, kind of the thing Spock Prime would wear. For a moment, it looked
like Nimoy was just going to pass by and then he stopped and came up behind
where Shatner was sitting and talking. There was something about Nimoy, he just
radiated this sense of peace and dignity, and very definite compassion. He put
his hands on the back of Shatner’s chair and Shatner sort of half-turned and
looked up at him with this shy smile. “Ah, you’re here,” he said, as
if he’d known Nimoy would be there but was still really grateful that he had
shown up. And in the dream Nimoy looked down at him with a quiet fondness and
gently said “Yes, Bill. I’m here.”
Then I woke up.
And now I don’t know what to
think, because I don’t believe in premonitions or anything, but it was like I
went from this exciting future possibility of another ST film to suddenly
realizing that Nimoy had come back for Shatner. He’d even done the Spock thing
of putting his hands on the captain’s chair, waiting for him to notice he had
been there all along. I think it could mean a lot of things, or nothing at all.
But if heaven is getting to be a part of the original Star Trek adventure, of
continuing that adventure, well I’m OK with that.
