Kirk is always trying to get Spock to hold his hand more often, and Spock is like “You know I care deeply about you ashayam, but I just don’t see the point in holding hands all the time, it’s not logical.” So Kirk is like “That’s where you’ve got it all wong.” and then proceeds to tell him that story about how when otters swim they hold hands so they don’t float away from each other. And from then on Spock is just like no captain, we must ALWAYS be holding hands. On missions where they stop by and just say hello to whatever life form is on a neighboring planet? Holding hands. On missions where they get locked up, bruised and bloodied in the middle of a war zone, and almost don’t make it? Holding hands. Wether it’s a landing part of two or twenty you can bet what they’re doing. Flying the Enterprise? On shore leave? While Kirk is reading a book or even brushing his teeth? You got it to all of the above.
So one day Kirk just can’t stop laughing at the difference and he’s like “When I said that about holding hands I didn’t mean ALL the time, though I certainly DO appreciate the gesture.” as Spock clings endearingly to his sleeve while they plot course for the next planet together. And Spock, in a very quiet voice, says seriously as he turns to Jim. “Captain, I couldn’t bare the thought of you floating away from me, especially out here in space. It would be… most illogical for that to happen.” And from that moment on, Kirk no longer laughs whenever they bring up the subject of holding hands. If anything, he squeeze’s Spock’s hand just a little tighter instead.
