Kirk/Spock AU: Spock spends the entire Five Year Mission silently pining over his clueless Captain and Uhura does her best to be the most observant, supportive best friend ever even though she thinks he’s being an idiot for keeping his feelings a secret.
Imagine Amanda singing Teddybear Picnic (because of I-Chaya) to preschool-aged Spock before bed every night, because she still loves singing lullabies to him (and even though he won't admit it, he loves it too). Imagine Spock questioning the logic of teddy bears being able to coordinate a picnic, let alone what purpose it would even serve them to do so. The song eventually inspires Spock to have a picnic with I-Chaya, much to Sarek's surprise, but Amanda knows why, and it's their little secret.
imagine spock, years down the road, humming that tune to himself when hes working on a difficult problem
it calms him down, and reminds him of simpler times
