“How about you and me go find somewhere quiet-” Kirk was cut off as a hand landed on his shoulder before his eyes rolled back into his head and he began to drop to the floor. You watched at your eyes went wide, opening your mouth to call out before you noticed who the hand belonged to.

“Really Spock? What was that for?” you questioned, looking up at Spock as Kirk fell to the floor. He stared back with a blank expression before beginning to walk past you.

“Come on Y/N,” he instructed casually, or as casually as you would imagine for him.

“Wait a second, are you jealous?” you asked, a grin crawling onto your face as you turned and watching him walk to a control board.

“Of course-” he started but was cut off at your laugh filled squeal.

“You totally were!” you laughed, making Spock turn around to look at your glee filled expression. “You didn’t have to like paralyze him.”

This has probably been mentioned already, but I have to get this off my chest

So Star Trek:Into Darkness was a great film - in fact, I loved all three movies. But one little thing that always bugged me was how much Bones was downplayed. I particularly have a lot of feelings for this scene:

Now, there is truth to that - Spock did capture Khan, whose blood was used to generate the life-saving serum. Spock risked his own life to capture a dangerous, near-invincible psychopath for Kirk (even though his initial intention was to kill Khan out of revenge and had to be begged by Uhura to spare his life). So I’m not going to deny the importance of Spock’s role in Jim’s revival (I love Spock, love his friendship with Kirk, not knocking that one bit). But tell me, was it Spock who:

- injected some of Khan’s blood into a dead tribble out of scientific curiosity, to study its incredible regenerative powers?

- discovered that the Tribble had been brought back to life, thus realising that Khan’s blood could be used to bring back Kirk?

- had the quick thinking to cryogenically freeze Kirk’s body in order to prevent his organs decomposing to a point that would be beyond saving?

- took Khan’s blood - breaking countless ethical guidelines in the process - and dedicated his time to generating a serum (surely that must have taken days, if not weeks, to generate a successful serum that could be safely used to medicate a human)?

- carefully nursed Kirk back to health?

Nope, all Bones. Now, I don’t have proof as to what happened during the two weeks Kirk was in a coma, but do you honestly think that this man:

… just carried on as normal? Or do you think he never left Jim’s bedside unless he was physically dragged away by other crew members so that he could eat/sleep before collapsing? Of course, Bones being Bones, he’s very flippant when his part in rescuing Jim is ignored:

… even mentioning Uhura’s part in it, because he won’t take all the credit, he acknowledges all who helped. Because he doesn’t care about recognition or thanks when it comes to Jim - he just wants to keep his best friend ALIVE. But why oh why couldn’t we just get a little acknowledgement from someone else about how Doctor Leonard Horatio “Badass” McCoy literally CHEATED DEATH and brought a dead man back to life as though it was just a normal part of a medic’s life?! The fact that he broke several medical ethics laws, thus risking his whole career, just to give the ship her captain back? WHY DOES NO ONE SEEM TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS?! And don’t get me started on the fact that he didn’t even get to say goodbye and the first time he sees Jim after the warp core incident is when he is lying in a freaking body bag on one of the biobeds.

There will always be those who mean to do us harm. To stop them, we risk awakening the same evil within ourselves. Our first instinct is to seek revenge when those we love are taken from us. But that’s not who we are… When Christopher Pike first gave me his ship, he had me recite the Captain’s Oath. Words I didn’t appreciate at the time. But now I see them as a call for us to remember who we once were and who we must be again.

Reasons Why Mirror!Spock is still a Good Spock

Hey, all ya’ll; I’m writing my Spirk + Mirror!Spock fic, A Crack in the Mirror , and I actually sat down and wrote up some reasons for why I think Mirror!Spock is actually good. Here ya go:

To begin, in the Prime Universe, The Time of Awakening gave the Vulcans their foundation of logical thinking and the pursuit of freedom from emotion. During this time is when a faction who did not believe in Surak’s teachings left Vulcan and later established Romulus. From what I gather, the Romulan Star Empire is the “Empire” of the Prime Universe.

Okay, now flip this for the Mirror Universe. I assume The Time of Awakening has still taken place, but it is the Vulcans who end up rejecting Surak’s teachings of logic in favor of ambition and power. They become the ruthless Romulans of the Mirror Universe. This is somewhat evidenced when Mirror Spock tells Mirror Sulu: “I suggest you remember that my operatives would avenge my death and some of them are Vulcans.”

So, first, Mirror Vulcans = Prime Romulans.

But there is something about Mirror Spock that I can’t shake since I recently rewatched the “Mirror, Mirror” episode– his logic is still perfectly intact. He doesn’t really seem like a Romulan; he’s not barbaric and treacherous like the others (I understand this is a claim with very little canon evidence). He almost seems defeated. He still has his infallible Prime Universe Vulcan logic, yet he exists in a universe that has forced him to betray that time and time again. While everyone else seems to glorify and even relish the brutality of the Empire, Mirror Spock tortures Mr. Kyle in the transporter room and doesn’t even bat an eye when Chekhov is in the agoniser booth because, according to him, “Terror must be maintained or the Empire is doomed. It is the logic of history.” He does these things, somewhat reluctantly, I might add, not to achieve power or because he enjoys it, but because he needs to survive against a force he feels he is powerless against.

Second, logical Spock is a universal constant. He only participates to survive.

Boom- now in walks (or beams) Prime Kirk. He highlights the fact that Mirror Spock is still logical by saying: “I submit to you that your Empire is illogical because it cannot endure. I submit that you are illogical to be a willing part of it.” and “If change is inevitable, predictable, beneficial, doesn’t logic demand that you be a part of it?”

Mirror Spock is hesitant at first, which is understandable per the statements I made above, but when Prime Kirk says, “In every revolution, there’s one man with a vision.”, Spock replies with, “Captain Kirk, I shall consider it.”

I shall consider it!

You can even see on his face that something within him has awakened. He has hope, and yes, he does want things to change. Prime Kirk confirms this by saying later on the bridge, “…that Jim Kirk will find a few changes, if I read my Spocks correctly.”

So, voilà! Spock is actually “good” in every universe because of his adherence to logic even if the varying circumstances cause him to behave a little differently  (like growing a beard lol).

Also, I don’t think that even Mirror!Spock would find it logical to proceed to fight a brutal, bloody war only to become the very thing he’s been fighting against. Hence, Mirror!Spock is still a good Spock…with a beard.
