made this post in celebration of the christmas month


Leonard Nimoy was indeed Jewish but despite the Cohenic origins of the Ta'al there is no concrete evidence, or even blatant mimicry, that Vulcans as a species were based off Jewish people. I find that a strange concept to say the least, given that they’re aliens and meant to be entirely foreign to Earth. 

We’re also not talking about the vaguely racist undertones of the Jawa or Jar Jar (or a million others) from Star Wars. (Also: Uhura is Swahili and as such possibly Islam why not bring that up?) 

I’m assuming there was a good portion of crew members on the ship that don’t celebrate Christmas. Despite this there was a ship wide Christmas party in “Dagger of the Mind” held in the science lab. 

I completely understand how annoying it is to see nothing but Christmas stuff for months on end. As a person who doesn’t celebrate Christmas, neither religiously nor socially, I find it gets on my nerves quite often. I originally had no intention to post anything (original) specifically for Christmas, and when I did edit the photo I tried to work a Menorah and a lantern (for Ramadan) in there but couldn’t figure out how to make them fit (it’s already a haphazard edit to begin with and it was getting ridiculous.) 

Despite this, I made sure to avoid religious symbols alltogether. I gave Uhura nothing but ornament earrings and Spock has mistletoe in his hair, which was pagan symbol long before it was appropriated by christians and continues to be used in solstice ceremonies to this day. 

 All together: I’m sorry if I caused offense but I don’t think Nimoy would have cared given that he sported this lovely sweater with a santa hat on it:

And just as an attempt to remedy any hurt feelings I might have caused I will add these:

Just gotta say something

Considering this is from me and I haven’t written anything in weeks due to writers block and majorly due to depression(I’m back on meds so no need to message me pfft) so maybe it won’t mean much but just have to say:

The hijack fandom isn’t dead.

It’s fine if a fandom slows down during the school year as people get busy when summer ends, its fine if it slows down any time, people have lives and new things come up that take peoples attention. New jobs, new relationships, new anything happens and that’s great but lemme just say that we all love hijack and that won’t end and it won’t die even if the tag is low and there is little slow for a time. Remember that it’s holiday season and Christmas and any other holidays people celebrate this time of year is in a month so things are hectic this time of year, it got slow in the fandom last year too.

I guess I made this post for a few reasons, one being im on a long car ride to my uncle’s ranch for thanksgiving, but also because I think the only way hijack would die is if people stop believing in this amazing pairing and ship, and I am happy to say that I haven’t seen anyone stop believing or stop loving it.

It’s okay to be sad it’s slowed down but doesn’t mean it’s dead. Hijack is something I love and I’ve seen many who love it too and that love won’t stop any time soon for any of us.
