ღ for Spirk please? :)
ღ: who is more likely to initiate hand-holding in public?
Heheheh I see what you did there 😏
At first, it’s Jim. He’s oblivious to everything though so he doesn’t know about the whole Vulcan hand thing. Spock blushes every time he does it but doesn’t say anything for fear of making things awkward or making Jim uncomfortable.
One day they come across two Vulcan lovers, and Jim sees them touching their index and middle fingers together. He asks Spock what that’s all about. Spock explains and Jim’s all “why didn’t you tell me oh my gOD IM SO SORRY”. Spock assured him that it was fine, but Jim won’t stop apologising.
After that Jim doesn’t take his hand anymore. Spock finds himself missing it, so one day he takes things into his own hands (whoops pun) and takes Jim’s hand. Jim’s surprised and like “wait isn’t this like making out” and Spock just nods, blushing and Jim grins to himself because he’s got a Vulcan that wants to constantly make out with him how cool is that. After that, Spock is usually the first to initiate, though Jim does it too if Spock is being particularly sassy to get him to shut up
Bones finds out about the Vulcan kissing and the next day he sees Jim and Spock holding hands on the bridge and he’s just like…really guys?? Really? Right in front of my salad???
