Hello im like legit asking a question and not trying to be mean but what do you mean by the Spock is jewish thing? I have never seen it before and I would like to know more about it if you don't mind.
Yes! no problemo friend!
Leonard nimoy himself (along with William Shatner and a few other crew members) was an orthodox jewish man, and he incorporated many aspects of his life and religion into spocks character and Vulcan society as a whole. Most notably the LLAP hand sign that he borrowed from a Jewish benediction ritual. Vulcans were conceived of as cerebral, pacifist, and intellectual. it fits jewish stereotypes of being bookish, learned, scholarly, and smart x.
Another thing is how spock is perceived to be an outsider and the only non human crew member, its based on his experiences growing up as a kid. Its a pointed ears= big nose kinda thing. he definitely faced his own kind of anti-Semitism on the enterprise. He’s even gone on to say that “everything I do is informed by my Judaism. A lot of what I’ve put into Spock came to me through my Jewish orientation” x . I’ve pretty much accepted that Amanda was jewish and passed it down to him. also side note: Leonard Nimoy used to do Yiddish plays in his spare time and preformed Shakespeare in Yiddish and if that’s not the cutest thing
Victoire rolled her eyes, “We’re all right ‘ere, Teddy. You don’t need to shout.”
“This is the very important first meeting of the-” Teddy hesitated and bought time by climbing up to stand on the empty teacher’s desk in the classroom they were meeting in, “The Cupid Club!”
“That is an 'orrible name,” Victoire frowned.
Daisy and Saanvi giggled, leaning into one another.
“Whatever,” Teddy said dismissively, “We can work out a better name later. The important thing is, we’re all here for one united purpose!” He paused to gesture dramatically and the other students stared at him, Daisy and Saavi giggled.
Teddy sighed, “You could show a little more enthusiasm, you know!”
“Should we clap?” Peter asked.
“Get on with it, Ted,” Victoire prompted with an exasperated smile.
Teddy said, “Fine. So, we’ve all seen my cousin and godfather, the illustrious Professor Potter and Professor Malfoy, flirting-”
“Insults really don’t seem like flirting to me,” Victoire said. To try and quell Teddy’s puppy dog expression she added, “They do look good together.”
Saanvi sighed, “Have you seen how Professor Potter smiles when Professor Malfoy talks with him?”
“He just lights up!” Daisy said with a giggle, “It’s the sweetest thing.”
“But what about Professor Malfoy?” Victoire said, “ 'E is always sneering and smirking at 'arry.”
“There’s no regret. You can’t regret. I mean, I’ve felt regret but I’ve also refused to allow regret to sow a seed and live in me because I don’t believe it. You feel it, it’s like guilt, it’s like jealousy, it’s like all those horrible things. You’ve just got to snip them and get them out, because they’re no good.“
The next morning you woke up alone. This was odd because
Taehyung was usually the last to get up in the house. Before escaping the
warmth of your bed, you stretched your neck a bit. As you entered the hallway,
a delicious smell wafted under your nose. This scent led you straight into the
kitchen, where you found the whole group making breakfast.
“What’s this?” you asked.
“GOOD MORNING Y/N!” Hobi said loudly, spreading his arms to
the sky. You couldn’t help but wince at the sheer enthusiasm and energy he was
exuding so early in the morning. Yoongi approached you, taking your hand. He
led you to the dining room table, which was already set.
“We’re making you breakfast,” he said.
“Oh that’s so sweet you guys. Thank you!” Jimin walked up to you with a cup of coffee. He handed it to you before nuzzling into your free
hand. The days since movie night, he had really opened up with the boys. He now
easily fit in. You took a sip while scratching behind his ears. He purred and
wiggled his head onto your lap. Such a cuddle bug.
said Taehyung, “Can you help me with this?” Jimin popped up from your lap. He
quickly excused himself and headed over to Tae. The tiger was standing over the
mixer with a confused look on his face. Jimin inspected it himself and mumbled
a few things. The two looked like scientists discussing a new discovery. Jimin
reached for the mixing button. Before the two could be coated in batter, Jin
consisted of pancakes, hash browns and bacon. The boys made sure to serve you
before themselves. Eventually they all settled in.
“- and Yoongi-hyung
showed me the best sun bathing spots in the house,” Jimin said.
Yoongi shrugged nonchalantly. You saw some of the
non-felines shake their heads in amusement. They didn’t quite understand their
love of high places and sunshine.
“Jiminie I could show you some cool places in the woods,”
“He’d probably like to learn some tricks in the kitchen,”
Jin offered, wriggling his brows.
“Orrr I could show him the best walking paths,” Hobi said
once he swallowed his food.
“Hyung we can play video games together after breakfast,”
the bombardment of attention, Jimin was smiling brightly, nodding at all their
suggestions. You were tickled pink to see him receive them well.
“We all have to wash up after breakfast, so don’t play too
long,” you said. Jungkook nodded, stuffing more pancakes into his face.
“This is the first time we get to go into town all
together!” Jin exclaimed suddenly.
“Yeah, it’ll be interesting,” said Yoongi. You could hear
Hobi’s tail hitting the back of his chair in excitement.
“Jin do you still have that list?” you asked.
“Yes!” He pulled a well-worn piece of paper out of his
“Perfect. Thank you.”
helped you round up the group once the Taxi arrived. He often took over as the
pack leader. The role naturally came to him and even the older boys didn’t
“Disposable bags?” he asked. Jungkook held up a handful of
“Check,” said the bunny.
“List?” Jin waved the piece of paper in the air.
“Check,” the fox said.
“Cellphones?” Everyone rummaged through their pockets for
the familiar rectangle. They all nodded in affirmation.
“Y/N?” Namjoon asked, turning around. You suddenly felt a
pair of arms on you. Hoseok lifted you high up into the air, as if you weighed
“Check!” said the dog. You laughed as your feet met the

The boys politely
greeted the taxi driver, who seemed a bit overwhelmed with the number of
hybrids piling into his car. Jungkook and Tae fought over who would sit next to
Jimin. They finally settled on Jimin sitting between them. Hoseok sat next to
Jungkook. Jin insisted he sat in the passenger seat, so you sat in between
Namjoon and Yoongi in the front row.
would take about half an hour. Namjoon settled into a new book he was reading.
Yoongi looked out the window, immersed in his thoughts. Jin conversed with the
taxi driver, who was immediately charmed. The four in the back were playing a
word game. The warmth of the packed car, along with the rumbling of the engine
began to take its toll on you. Your eyes slowly slid shut before your head fell
over onto Namjoon’s shoulder. The wolf smiled to himself and wrapped an arm
around your shoulder, holding your head in place.
thing you knew, Namjoon was waking you.
“Y/N, we’re here.” You inhaled and sat upright.
“Oh, okay.” The car was empty except for you, Namjoon and
the driver. He gave you a kind smile over his shoulder. Shaking the sleepiness
away, you handed him the money and thanked him.
“It was my pleasure. Your hybrids are so polite,” said the
had waited for you at the entrance of the local grocery store. The small town
wasn’t used to seeing hybrids, but after a few years and several hundred trips
into town, they became well known members of the community.
Jin and Yoongi
grabbed shopping carts while Namjoon consulted the list. You were browsing the
produce when you heard a bit of a commotion. Mrs. Booth had spotted Hobi from
across the store and quickly waddled over to him, her eyes crinkling in a soft
“Oh Hoseok dear. So good to see you,” she said, patting his
“Mrs. Booth! How are you?” Hobi asked, his tail wagging in
“Oh just dandy. I see you’re shopping with all your
friends. What’s the occasion?”
“We’re getting ready for a Thanksgiving feast!”
“How wonderful. I should really introduce you to my
granddaughter. A handsome man like you is hard to come by,” she said. Hobi’s
cheeks heated and he laughed nervously. Mrs. Booth reached up and patted his
“My, my I was just teasing you. You already have Y/N.”
“Oh yeah I love Y/N,” Hoseok said with a grin.
“So forward,” Mrs. Booth said with a laugh. Hoseok tiled
his head in confusion but laughed along. “You’ll get separated with your
group if I keep you any longer dear. Have a wonderful thanksgiving.”
“I will Mrs. Booth. Happy holidays!” Hobi bounded off to
catch up with the rest of the group.
the trip, both Taehyung and Jungkook would come up to you with treats in their
hands and the best pouting face they could muster. You tried to stay strong but
ultimately you failed. Eventually Yoongi scolded them for taking advantage of
you. He stood by your side to shoo away any more pleas for treats. You linked
arms with him. His fluffy tail swayed behind him in contentment.
seemed a bit overwhelmed so Jin took him under his wing. He gave Jimin the
grand tour of the store, pointing out the exotic foods and the best brands to
buy from. He spoke of mouth-watering dishes and aromatics. If Jimin’s eyes
could sparkle, they would. Jin seemed to turn the small-town market into a
fantasy land of infinite possibilities. By the end of the trip, Jimin had
fallen in love with the grocery store.
townspeople greeted you, noticing the new addition to your group. Jimin was still
a bit shy with strangers. They gushed at how cute he was, causing him to blush
and grab onto the back of your shirt. He would smile kindly at them and
introduce himself. The other boys proudly talked about their new brother,
bragging about his kindness and good looks.
waited for the taxi to come pick you up, a little girl approached Taehyung.
“Tiger!” she said, pointing at him. Tae knelt to her level
“Hello!” he greeted. Her eyes widened when she saw the soft
ears atop his head. Noticing her stare, Tae tilted his head down, so she could
pet him. Her pudgy hands cautiously touched the soft fur. A squeal of delight
rippled through her. She used both of her hands to pet his ears.
The little girl jumped up and down, her excitement
overflowing. Tae melted at the adorable sight. He gladly answered her questions
such as do you live in the jungle and can you roar.
“Oh Nellie!” a woman cried, running to the little girl.
“I’m sorry if she was bothering you.”
“Oh not at all,” Tae said, standing up.
“Mommy, he’s my tiger friend,” said Nellie.
“Wow, wait till you tell your friends at school,” her
Tae waved the two off before rejoining the group, a large
grin never leaving his face.
the gang arrived home just at sunset. Jungkook showed off his bunny strength by
carrying four bags into the house. The rest of the boys carried a bag each. It
took only 15 minutes to unpack the groceries with all the helping hands. Jin
checked off his list once more, making sure that nothing was forgotten.
When all was said and done,
Jin noticed you were no where to be seen. With his sensitive ears, he honed in
on the sound of your breathing. You were passed out on the couch, a particular
black cat snuggled up next to you. Jin smiled and pulled a blanket over the two
of you. Jimin came in and gave the eldest a confused look.
always get’s tired after going out,” he whispered. Jimin smiled as you snuggled
closer to Yoongi. Even in his sleep, he was purring. Jin took Jimin by the hand
and led him out of the living room. The rest of the boys were hanging about
each other’s rooms. Hobi and Namjoon were looking up turkeys online while
Jungkook and Tae watched an anime movie.
day was the big day: Thanksgiving. You woke up bright and early to get the
breakfast started. Jin would be doing enough cooking today so you gladly took
over the first meal. Namjoon was nowhere to be seen, as he got up at dawn to
hunt down a turkey. As the rest of the boys ate their fill and washed up for
the day, you ventured into the attic. It was a bit unusual, but you like to
decorate the house a bit for thanksgiving.
Yoongi and Jungkook were in charge of kitchen duties. The rest of the boys
helped you put up the decorations. There wasn’t much, a few fall-themed
wreathes, turkey dolls and a fake cornucopia. Jimin pulled out a banner from
“Oh, that’s our little sign,” you said. The cat unfolded it
to reveal a hand-made banner that read “Happy Thanksgiving.” All around it were
handprints with names underneath them.
“Let’s add your handprint Jimin. You’re part of the family
now,” you said. Jimin looked over at you and started to tear up.
“Really?” he said
“Awe, yes, really.” You wiped away his tears of joy with a
smile. He put the banner aside to hide his face in your neck. He was
embarrassed to cry in front of the others. Tae and Hobi found some paint and a
brush. They helped paint Jimin’s delicate hand a deep red. The cat studied the
banner intensely. Eventually, he settled on dotting the first ‘i’ with his hand print.
Taehyung and Hoseok cheered dramatically, making Jimin smile.
hands, Jimin signed his name by his mark. To some people it might seem like a
childish thing. To him it was a moment he would never forget. Not only was it
the first holiday he celebrated in earnest, but it marked his permanent place
in this family. He had finally found his forever home.
neared time to eat the Thanksgiving feast, Namjoon still hadn’t come home. You
looked at the sun as it began to set. Hobi found his place at your shoulder,
mimicking your gaze. He let out a small whimper, his ears falling to the side of
“Hey, don’t worry. I’m sure he’s just being stubborn about
catching a turkey.” You massaged his ears to reassure him. “I’ll call him in
The cold air pinched at your cheeks as you stepped outside.
You looked around for a moment before cupping your hands around your mouth.
“Joooooonnniiieee! Come in now! There’s always next year!”
Calling out to him usually worked. His hearing was much better than a human’s.
You stood in the cold, sniffling at odd intervals. Within two minutes a tall
figure emerged from the forest. He was empty handed, but his expression didn’t
reveal any sadness or anger. He quickly ushered you inside, chiding you about
not putting on a hat.
“No luck huh?” you asked as you stepped inside.
“No. But it was nice to run around and hunt again. I
could’ve nabbed us a lot of rabbits but…I think Jungkook wouldn’t like that.”
“Good idea.” As Namjoon leaned down the untie his shoes,
you rubbed his ears to warm them up. He grinned at you, showing off his cute
dimples. At that moment Hoseok ran in and tackled Namjoon. His tail wagged
furiously as he smothered his best friend. The wolf looked a bit confused, so
you mouthed “he was worried.” A knowing smile formed on his lips and he
returned the hug.
walked into the kitchen, you were hit with a wonderful aroma.
“Jin it smells amazing in here. I can’t wait to try out
your new dishes!” The fox turned around to reveal his comically feminine apron.
He was as pretty as a housewife. His fluffy tail wagged lightly behind him at
“Wait no more. Dinner is ready,” he said. As if a bell had
been rung, the rest of the boys entered the kitchen, some running, some
scrambling. They all quickly found their seats while you and Jin put the dishes
on the table. The feast included a large golden turkey, mashed potatoes and
gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, roasted root vegetables and fresh-baked
from your seat and looked around the table.
“Before we eat, I’d like to go around and say what we’re
thankful for.” The boys nodded their heads in agreement. “I can go first if no
one else wants to.” There were no volunteers, so you continued. “I’m thankful
for a lot of things. I have a beautiful house that costs nothing. I have a
wonderful family that keeps growing. Every day I wake up I feel loved and
appreciated. With the seven of you, everyday is an adventure. I would have
never guessed that my life would be like this. It’s better than my wildest
gracefully, you took a seat. Jin stood from your right. “I’m thankful for food,
the ability to cook and all of you. Before I lived here, my life was uncertain
and dark. Now it’s bright and clear.”
Next was Jungkook. “I’m thankful for videogames, consoles
and my brothers. And Y/N of course. I’m thankful for her too.”
Jimin stood. “This family is the best thing that has ever
happened to me. Thanks to Y/N’s kindness and patience I’ve become part of your
world. I’ve never felt so welcomed and understood in my life. I’m so thankful
for everyone.” A chorus of “awwww” and “JIMINIE!” echoed throughout the dining
room. Those closest to him gathered him up in a hug. The calico cat was smiling
so widely his eyes turned into crescent moons.
everyone calmed down, Hoseok stood for his turn. “I’m thankful for walks, pets,
and all of you!”
The rest of the boys briefly described what they were thankful
for. Namjoon was thankful for the woods, his independence and his family.
Taehyung was thankful for his garden, video games and being able to bite
things. Yoongi was the last to go.
“A lot of what was already described are things I’m
thankful for too. I’m thankful for naps, sun patches and Y/N. Without her
taking me in, I would’ve never met all of you.”
Everyone clapped as Yoongi sat down. Without any more
pretense, the feast begun. Jin’s dishes were a big hit. Compliments flew from
every direction about the savory gravy and the perfectly cooked turkey. Plates
were filled twice, some even thrice. By the end, everyone patted their full
bellies, a food coma on the horizon.
You were cleaning
up the kitchen while the rest of the boys hung out in the living room. You insisted
you cleaned up alone, so they could enjoy the rest of their evening. Honestly,
you wanted to work off all those calories you consumed. Once you finished you
ventured into the family room. There you found the boys snoozing in a hybrid
pile. Stifling a laugh, you turned off the television and laid a few blankets
