Bones headcanons (2)

• Bones has a ring on his pinky finger. It’s a memento from his mother and he never removes it. Mccoy never explained it so, it started many rumors within the crew such as a romantic relationship (Sulu started a betting pool) and even Kirk has to admit he doesn’t know the truth about it. Bones’ a tease and neither approves nor denies their hypotheses.

• It isn’t the only jewelry piece he owns. Actually he has two more rings: an imposing silver one from his father and a thinner golden one from his ex-wife. He also wears, more often than not, an old-fashioned watch that Jim got him when they were at the academy. Finally, he wears a light necklace underneath his uniform that he’s been given by Spock. He doesn’t know why the Vulcan gave him such a gift nor why he wears it but he finds its presence appeasing not that he would ever tell the hobgoblin.

• Bones is one of those persons who are always cold so after some malfunction in the temperature control unit, he comes to sickbay with a turtleneck sweater under his uniform. It left both Jim and Spock open-mouthed because god, Mccoy looks freaking good.

• Bones isn’t really a good cook. Sure, he can cook some damn Spaghettis but… let’s just say he had to change his oven three or four times. He’s also infamous for his burned-like-they-were-baked-in-hell cookies. So, before he went on the USS Entreprise, Joanna kept cooking meals for him that he could bring back home. She wasn’t the best either but that didn’t stop Leonard from proudly showing his lunch to everyone that passed by.

• Leonard kept a list of all the times Spock said he made a mistake just so that he could use it one day and shut the damn hobgoblin’s mouth for once. It backfired.

• When he joined Starfleet, Mccoy bought a small apartment downtown. It’s small but cozy. There’s only one room but the sofa can turn into a bed when he needs it to be so it’s fine when Jim storms in or when he’s lucky enough to see his daughter. When he left, he gave one key to Joanna and one to Jim. At some point in their five years’ mission, he gave one to Spock too.

• Bones isn’t very gifted in learning new languages but he, at least, knows the basics: all of the most utilized curses and how to order a drink. Most of the senior crew find it funny (Jim thinks it’s hilarious) until it came handy and pretty much saved everyone’s sorry asses.

One thing that absolutely shocks me about the star trek fandom is the almost total absence of ship wars among the most shipped characters. Like, people who ship spirk usually love mckirk too and vice versa, and then there are those who support a happy triumvirate, and those who don’t like one of the combination but respect it and occasionally reblog it if the post is cute.
Like, all the fandoms I’ve been in were absolute hell in this respect, with people actively trying to destroy characters to prove their ship was the best, while here everyone just loves the space gays and have no will to fight with other people.
I mean now at least, I have no idea how things were years ago.

“’Star Trek’ fans totally accepted my sexual orientation. There are a great number of LGBT people across ‘Star Trek’ fandom. The show always appealed to people that were different - the geeks and the nerds, and the people who felt they were not quite a part of society, sometimes because they may have been gay or lesbian.”

The Neverending Cycle of Fandoms

When our friends first introduced it to us

we were totally Elastigirl here.

Then we research it a little more…

Before too long, we become this.

Sooner or later the fandom is presented again

But now we are

THIS.

Here’s To The Crazy Ones.....

The misfits….

The rebels…. 

The troublemakers…

The round pegs in square holes…. 

The ones who see things differently… 

They are not fond of the rules and have no respect for the status quo….

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them….

The only thing you can’t do is ignore them….

Because they change things…..

They push the human race forward….

And while some may see them as the crazy ones….

We see genius.

“My problem isn’t that my favorite characters aren’t real; it’s that I’m not fictional. I don’t want them to be real. What I desperately wish is that I could be fictional with them. It’s not that I want them here with me in this mundane and ordinary world; it’s that I want to join them in their extraordinary one.”
