A PSA to the Star Trek Fandom
Russian Names: You're Doing it Wrong
I love Star Trek. I love Star Trek so much. I love reading Star Trek fanfic and hearing head canons and AUs and genderbends. The Star Trek fandom is dedicated. Fanfic authors seem to do their research, and do it well, with one exception.
Motherfucking Pavel Andreivich Chekov.
I love this kid, whether it’s the TOS drama queen sass master or the AOS innocent angelic whiz kid. I love reading everything the fandom puts out on this dude. What I do not love, is the butchering of his name that goes on in this beautiful fandom. So, more out of selfishness than generosity, because if I read one more Pavel getting embarrassed at his “childhood nickname,” because of anyone writes a family fic in which Pavel’s father is named anything but Andrei, I. Will. Fucking. Scream.
i’m trying so, so hard not to completely spam this account with the one million ballerina!Enterprise sketches i’ve done… but tbh there are going to be at least a few more (i don’t want to leave out any primary crewmembers). and hey! klingon BOPs wearing what i WISH i were wearing right now. i want those pants.
Imagine Kirk and Spock arguing on the bridge, and Checkov giving Sulu an exasperated look before making a shipwide announcement for Dr.McCoy to report to the bridge because “Mom and Dad are fighting again”
