May I ask for a Chris Pine imagine,please? where he’s on an interview(maybe the Ellen show) and he’s talking about how he managed to convice his now wife to go on a date with him,because their mutual friend Zachary Quinto who said she loves Frank Sinatra and he serenates for her (ever since I heard him sing ,that’s all I think about ) ;)
“And we are back from break talking to Chris Pine about the newest installment of the Star Trek series. Just before break we were talking about his relationship with the cast, as this is their fourth movie together, and we started talking about someone you are very close with on set…,” Ellen said smiling at Chris, “your wife, Y/N.”
“Yes, my wonderful wife Y/N,” he blushed.
“So tell us, you two started dating after the first movie in 2009, how did your relationship start on set?”
He laughed and settled back into the seat. “Well, the second I saw Y/N on set I was completely head over heels. I didn’t want to make any moves right away because I didn’t want to make the set awkward but Zach Quinto picked up right away by my shameless flirting that I liked her. I think Y/N just thought I was trying to be funny or that I was a natural flirt so she just kind of put up with me,” the audience laughed at your husband’s flustered face.
“Zach and Y/N had become pretty good friends real quick so, about a month before filming finished, I went to Quinto and told him I needed ideas to ask her out on a date. He was telling me all her interests and what her favorite things were and he mentioned that she was a big Frank Sinatra fan. So, being the smooth man that I am, I thought it would be a great idea to serenade her and ask her out to dinner.”
“Oh, you know what,” Ellen said like she was shocked, “I think our good friend Zachary Quinto sent in the video he took of it!”
“Oh no,” Chris put a hand over his face as the video rolled. Zach was hiding behind something on set as he filmed and recorded the scene as Chris walked over to you, as you sat and read lines, and started singing I’ve Got You Under My Skin. Everyone watched as your eyes went wide and a large grin took over your face.
“Chris, what are you doing,” they heard you ask and he stopped singing long enough to answer you.
“I’m going to sing to you until you agree to go out for dinner with me,” he said and jumped right back into where he left off, getting louder this time. People around set started looking and laughing at the sight before them.
“Ok!” You shouted with a smile and Chris stopped singing. “Ok, I’ll go on a date with you.”
“I’ll pick you up at 6:30.” The video cut off and the audience clapped.
“It seems like that date went well,” Ellen joked.
“It did,” Chris looked up to the screen where a picture of your family popped up and an “Aw” took over the audience. “ I’d say after 7 years of being together, being married for 5 years, and one kid with another on the way, it’s still going pretty good.”

Word Count: 5697, including lyrics (which are italicized throughout)
Warnings: talk and use of soft and hard drugs, implied prostitution, cocaine overdose, major character deaths, mention of minor character death, mental illness - specifically addiction, anxiety, and depression, all the angst. Also, one of the character deaths could be read as suicide - though it’s not intended to be one - and the song lyrics mention the historical suicide of Vincent Van Gogh.
A/N: This ended up being for two challenges and it is the angstiest thing I have ever written. I cried while I wrote it. First, @nichelle-my-belle is hosting Nichelle’s 4K Angst Challenge and my prompt was “if you kill all my demons, my angels might die too.” I was looking for a song to frame the fic when @thing-you-do-with-that-thing announced the SPN Anti-Valentine’s Challenge and I saw one of the prompts was “Josh Groban - Starry Night,” which is a cover of Don McLean’s “Vincent,” a song I absolutely love. You can bet I snapped that one up real quick! Click on each of the links to head to youtube for two different versions of the song. They are so different but each are beautiful in their own right (though, if you’ve never heard it before, I recommend you start with the original).
Hey guys! I’m a huge Star Trek fan, especially of the show Deep Space Nine. So when I saw a Star Trek DS9 graphic novel in a comic shop during my college NY trip, I was really excited!
And here’s the thing, its a great story! The characterizations are spot, the plot feels exactly like a real episode of DS9, and for the most part the art is pretty good! I especially loved that Garak plays an important part in the story, since he’s one of my favorite characters in DS9. The ending was perfect as well.
But there was one glaringly obvious and frankly distracting problem that persisted throughout the book. Lets take a look shall we?
Ok, so far so good, I like the color palate, and look, they even gave Morn an appearance! Lets keep going.
Oh look, its Sisko and Dax! They look pretty good! The office looks good too. So far the beginning of this book is promising.
…hmm, wonder where Major Kira is? Oh here she comes!
Wait…why can I see both of her individual boobs through her thick military uniform? Well, it dosnt’ look that bad, it could be wor….
What the fuck!? That’s not even anatomically correct! And they are huge!
The boobs are not only to big, they are to low, and it should be impossible to see them like that through her uniform!
They basically turned Major Kira, one of the strongest most badass woman in Star Trek, into walking boobs!
Half the time this sexist artist doesn’t’ even bother with proper anatomy! Just as long as you see huge curves. She is basically drawn naked, with her curves hugely exaggerated and her clothes just painted on!
And what the fuck?! You can even see her collar bone through supposedly padded fabric! THATS NOT PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE!!
Look at this! Its ridiculous! and just look and the third image above! He didn’t even bother to give her pupils or a nose, but her chest is drawn and colored with great detail!
Just look at the difference here between Kira and these awful drawings!
Gah! It makes me so mad!
Left is a pic of everyone else, looking normal. And right is the last time in the comic that we see Kira grace us with her boobs, oops, I meant her presence.
Now I’m not saying that sexy, big boobed women in thin clothes are a bad thing. For example if It was this fine lady below being drawn like this:
It would be totally fine.
But taking a woman and changing her appearance, making her assets larger, and making the clothes basically see through when they shouldn’t be, just to pander to giving men something to oogle, Is soo grose and wrong.
Now I know that shit like this is common in super hero comics, but from a Star Trek book I expected better. And its obvious that they are capable, just look at some of the art that was put at the back of the book!
The last one is from the cover.
Why couldn’t they do the rest of the book like this?!
And here is an even simpler great fanart of kira that i found.
By Dennis Budd
Now This is how you do it!
It's just sad and so disappointing. The way Kira is portrayed was so distracting, and ruined an otherwise good book.
“Babe where the heck out we going ” you say. You laughed at the uncertainty of the situation. Your boyfriend Taylor just got his new car and would drive anyone anywhere if they asked. But he said he was surpising you and you guys had been driving for at least an hour! Up hills and down hills. “ Show me a little trusty eh ! ” he said. The radio was blasting and a little but of a throwback “ with you ” by Chris brown. Taylor began his mini fan girl attack. “ oooooo I’m into you and girl oh no one else but you ” he sang loud and proud. He was holding you hand so he was fling around your arm every time he moved. Dam boy almost dislocated your shoulder ! At the end of the song he literally hit the break sending to flying. “ you asshole what was the for !” You yelled rubbing your for head. “ we are here ” he said with such a devilish grin but you couldn’t help but wanna kiss him ! He has rushed out throwing something over the hood of the car. Then coming around to you. “ comeeee on slowwww poke !!” He said dragging out of the car.“ Ok babe I’m gonna lift you to the hood "he said. Before you could even process the information being given to you he had already but you on the hood of the ….. It was one tall ass car ! Soon enough he came to join you :)! ” ok now this is why I brought you here look up “ as you did you saw a beautiful starry sky there were at least a thousand In your view ! You never saw this you had lived in Cali your entire life. ” you I this is gorgoues taylor ! “ you said almost speechless at the beauty you saw before you. ” I have wanted to bring you for awhile but never had a good enough car to make the trek “ he smiled you couldn’t help but stare when he smiled. He never smiled much in picture but in person if you saw him smile it was so perfect it looked drawn on. He stop talking when he saw me staring and began leaning in. With him gone so much these kisses meant so much more because you missed them so much. You guys were in perfect sync he was being dominate because you let him win you knew that made him happy having the complete control. He put some of his body weight on you leaning on you. This felt like a movie the stars the kiss it almost felt unreal. ” you know these stars aren’t assss bright" he said. You look at him in utter confusion “ as bright as out eyes lol those beautiful big eyes are 10x better than any starry night you could ever show me. ” he said your heart melted he was the biggest sweetheart ! “ I love you (y/n) and stop letting me win I like challenges” he stated “ oh really ” you said with a flirtatious smirk. He wanted a challenge huh “ then come here caniff here’s your challenge ” you called pulling his shirt bring his lip to you. Let’s just say you never give up without a fight ;)
Today we got the news that Chris Pine was no Hal Jordan, but a different pilot altogether.
I’m a WonderBat fan, but I’m also a general DC fan, so I think I need to approach this piece of news by wearing my two hats. I’ll wear the larger white hat first.
Other things that us WonderBat fans can learn from Olivia Pope in this time
I’m a post-Pérez Wonder Woman fan so I’ve never really had the chance to see Steve as a proper love interest, instead growing up on DCAU and/or having Diana be a single independent woman in most of her incarnations. My first experience with Steve was the 2009 movie, and I went in thinking, Ok, Gail Simone did this so it’s going to be amazing and I will try my best to look beyond my shipper glasses and understand before I continue to declare my allegiance to WonderBat.
So I watched it. I loved the depiction of all the women. Gail Simone deserves all the awards for all the women, from Hippolyta to Artemis to Persephone and Diana was just the amazing woman that I always loved. There was only one problem: I couldn’t get onto the Steve Trevor express.
Me too, Steve, me too, by the time I got to the ending scene
If Man of Steel started amazing and then went through a tough bit before getting to the cathartic end where everything was amazing again, Wonder Woman was amazing all the way till it got to the end and then the comic relief character suddenly was her love interest with little to no build-up beyond that one hospital scene where she realised he had feelings for her. Which, by the by, ended like THIS:
Let me tell you something, dear reader. I get tsundere. I read Japanese manga before I got into comics. I watched a lot of Korean dramas in my formative years where all the male leads behave like children who like to bully the girls they like. I even read romance novels where the men also tend towards immaturity when they won’t say they’re in love. So believe me when I say that there was no chemistry and not enough build up to that moment when she decided she was suddenly calf-eyed over him. None at all. It could have been an amazing movie about male and female friendship where after the hijinks of their respective views and his being attracted to her, they became best friends. If it went from there to become more than friendship, fine, with good writing I can accept it. But to quote Susan Eisenberg, My heart belongs to Batman!
I rarely say this about characters whom I’ve not spent time psychoanalysing (read my Laurel appreciation post), but I’m not a fan of Steve Trevor. I find him really annoying to watch when he’s not being put in his place by Diana, but I suspect it’s because we don’t really get a lot of him beyond the misguided Golden and Silver Age stuff and now he’s just a broody angsty man in the New 52, much like almost every other New 52 man. (Okay, I overgeneralise.) The movie version of him was cocky and overly friendly, and like Hippolyta I was not predisposed to like him after he referred to Diana upon first meeting her as the one with the nice rack. No. Just no.
More of this would have been great, instead of the WHY DID YOU DO THE THING DIANA??? I had to ask myself at the end of the film
I appreciate that he is an important part of the DC mythos, and particularly important to Wonder Woman’s supportive cast. I think it was good that Pérez included him, and I applaud DC’s decision to do so now, in the upcoming film. I think Chris Pine is a fantastic choice for the character, because given his previous performances in Star Trek, I am 100% sold on his ability to play a winsome roguish if somewhat pervy character, and I would love to see his jovial nature play off the intenseness with which Gal Gadot seems to be playing Diana. Steve and Diana do work on some level, in that he’s the jokey one and she’s the really focused one, which will be fun to watch. They just don’t need to be a couple for that to happen! I want to see Diana and Bruce make sarcastic cracks at each other instead!!!! Moreover, should DC go with the New 52 ARGUS-spin on his backstory beyond the whole hotshot pilot, it would be amazing watching how Chris Pine acts alongside Viola Davis’s Amanda Waller. I can just see Amanda Waller putting him in his place when he tells her to lighten up. Okay, maybe I just like seeing Steve Trevor being put in his place, just like how Bruce telling Wally off in JL was hilarious.
Steve is a valuable character in how he’s so supportive of Diana as Wonder Woman once he is in the know and I think that his personal journey in accepting her trumphing him in every way is a very good conduit for the audience. Especially for the people I know who insist on mansplaining to me about why feminism is a conspiracy women have created to take over the world. I’d like to see Chris play Steve as a real character, not just as comic relief or a stand-in for some ideal, but someone who grew up mentally acknowledging that yes, women and men should be equal in opportunities but has never dealt with a woman who’s better than him in most of the ways he has traditionally been strong in. This is a Steve that I think people can get behind, and I do think that Chris Pine himself has just enough charm to pull off the cocksure womaniser part of the character.
As a WonderBat fan I won’t deny my feelings of NOOOOOOOOOOOOO when I saw the news, but as a DC fan I’m all for Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. I can’t wait to watch how he brings the character to life in the live action Wonder Woman, though I will more than happily relish the dance scene in BVS:DOJ.
