old kirk

For @calliatra for @fandomtrumpshate 

Happy Valentine’s Day, I bear headcanons. Spock and Kirk, after retirement. They have an interview together because they’re famous starship captains, but Spock prefers to be known as the First Officer. They’re both past caring about decorum, so they show up dressed in civilian clothes. Kirk’s dug out his old green shirt and a jacket with a vintage NASA pin. Spock is bundled up. They’ve got a ton of in-jokes; the interviewer is bemused but entirely delighted over how affectionate they are. The vulcans are no longer scandalized—“It’s that science genius with his human again.” 


Goodnight, Captain
(AKA vague prequel to this)

Where freshly minted Captain Kirk reads up on stuff even when he’s not on shift and nods off in random conference rooms on the Enterprise. Certain first officers who don’t require as much sleep take care of things.

  • Bones: Where is Jim?
  • Spock: Over there. *gesturing to a station where Jim is not there at a crowded market*
  • Bones: Spock, use your ozh'esta signal.
  • Spock: *Baffled eyebrow raise* Hinek, the Vulcan kiss is not a signal.
  • Bones: Your very own Batman signal and you are denyin' it. *eye roll* Any time where you lose track of Jim, you hold your two fingers out then your bondmate comes out of the wild and completes it.
  • Spock: I do not believe that happens as you say it does. *Holds his two fingers out*
  • Jim: *Pops out of no where completing the gesture* T'hy'la, You will never guess what I found!
  • Bones: Oh look, *Bounces* your ozh'esta signal worked.
