Karaoke Night on the Enterprise

Just a silly little thing that hit me hard on the drive home. I blame the podcast crew. Links to music videos in the text.


It’s Pavel’s idea.

He starts it off with a bang (he’s quite the performer). Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar On Me. 

Sulu - not be outdone - is up next. Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell.

Nyota is shoved to the stage next. She hems and haws for a bit, then selects Adele’s Rolling in the Deep. 

She gets a standing ovation.

Scotty, by this point, is more than a little drunk. Five years in deep space, and none of the senior officers would have predicted him to belt Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time with such gusto.

Pav’s back on the stage now, pulling Hikaru up with him. Mulan’s I’ll Make a Man Out of You. Jim laughs until his sides ache.

Jim’s up next. Dolly Parton’s Jolene. He’s pretty sure that he slayed it, too.

Bones takes a little convincing, but Jim’s finally gotten enough liquor in him that he can be shoved onstage (protesting loudly, of course). He’s a little shy at first, but his voice isn’t too bad, and halfway through the first verse of The Black Keys’ Lonely Boy, he pulls the mic off its stand and stalks toward Jim, winking, teasing, dancing. Jim’s having the time of his life, and Nyota is pretty impressed - who would have thought?

This prompts a duet. Ny pulls Bones back on stage, and they sing Johnny Cash’s Jackson together. 

Jim thinks he’s never been as turned on his life. 

Spock absolutely refuses. 

Scotty and Jim give an encore performance of Britney Spears’ Toxic.

Hikaru goes again - Kenny Chesney’s She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy. Bones laughs until there are tears in his eyes.

Ny joins Hikaru. Their performance of Grease’s You’re the One that I Want leaves Scotty red faced and prompts a wolf whistle from Jim.

Jim and Scotty - Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror

Jim serenades Bones with Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart.

The night ends with Jim finally, finally convincing Bones to duet with him.

Garth Brooks’ Friends in Low Places.

It brings down the house.

It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010) - Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck

5 bullets on this film:

  • I think this movie deals with the topic of mental illness very well, without being too heavy, but in a sensitive way. It’s deep and it makes you think a lot, but there are some funny scenes as well. If you ever feel sad, watch this, it’ll make you feel better.
  • Zach Galifianakis and Emma Roberts are great, they really got into their roles. I loved how all the characters were well-developed  and how each one of them represented different mental illnesses.  
  • The musical interludes basically made the entire movie.
  • The setting is basically the same during the whole movie: a psychiatric hospital. However, the colors and the nice cinematography make everything seem cute and not-boring.
  • When I was around 14 I used to get really sad sometimes, so I watched this film and it really helped me. I also read the novel written by Ned Vizzini, which was based on his own life. I recently found out that he commited suicide in 2013 and I am devastated. When you feel sad, please don’t do anything stupid.

    I can open any door, anywhere, with a few tiny lines of computer code. No such thing as a private bank account now. They’re all mine. No such thing as secrecy. I own secrecy. Nuclear codes? I could blow up NATO in alphabetical order. In a world of locked rooms, the man with the key is king. 

                         And, honey, you should see me in a crown.

Posting now because tomorrow is gonna be killer for me. 

No real warnings, just a blatant disregard for canon and shameless pseudoscience. I am a creature of consistency.

AOS FIC: From Your Fences

This is Post-Beyond. Scroll to the bottom for Anna’s author’s notes. I have a ton.

Big ol’ thanks to @outside-the-government for her inspiration/support, even if it didn’t turn out like I planned. If you have not checked out her blog, go now. It’s fabulous. She is fabulous. 

This is part one of three, but can certainly be read as a standalone. Full of fandom cliches, ‘cause I’ve never had an original thought once in my life.

Also, McKirk. It’s always McKirk.


Somehow, Jim had convinced them all to go camping.

They’ve been transferred back to San Fran after Krall’s attack. Len’s been holed up in the lab for most of leave, has grudgingly accepted a part time mentorship position working with senior cadets.

“C’mon, Bones,” Jim whines. “The White River is gorgeous in the fall. Everyone’s going. Ben’s even taken sabbatical.”

Len had bitched and moaned and grumbled,Years stuck in space, and the first opportunity you get, you wanna sleep on the cold ground under the damn stars.”

He finds himself in Washington, anyway.


Len spends most of the first day on the river. He hasn’t gone fly fishing since David’s illness, and dammit, if it doesn’t feel good. The breeze is cool on his cheeks and the rush of the water over his boots is a comfort. Ben and Hikaru have Demora at the shoreline. Ben’s splashing her gently, and she’s squealing. 

It brings a lump to Len’s throat.

Warnings - less eye squick in this one, but beware the angst.

McKirk, ‘cause it’s always McKirk


Bones pulls him from his thoughts with a heavy hand on his shoulder. “Jim,” he says slowly, pained. Jim feels him kneel on the ground beside him. “I can’t raise the ship.”

Of course you can’t, Jim thinks resentfully. “We’re in the shield perimeter.”

Bones sighs beside him. “I know,” he says. He’s quiet for a moment, as if considering. “I think we should keep moving,” he says, after a long moment. “Move beyond it, if we can. We’ve got to be close to the border.”
