Just got back from seeing Star Trek, and obviously it was AWESOME. Chris Pine could set my phaser to stun any day! Rawr! (No I don't know either.) I loved how the whole thing was a big game of "Who's that actor?" Hey, it's Cameron from House! That chick from Centerstage! That dude from Harold and Kumar! EOMER! Simon PEGG! And holyfuck it's Winona fucking Ryder! Lololol AMAZING. Evvvveryone was amazing. <3

I only have one question, one I had never consciously realized before - did the original, the ORIGINAL slash pairing really, ACTUALLY involve WILLIAM SHATNER? My mind is kind of reeling at this revelation. Was he even mildly attractive? Was he less douchey? Was he LESS SHATNERY? My mind is just struggling to wrap around it. I had kind of assumed it was Patrick Stewart! I can get behind that! Clearly I am a Star Trek infidel, shut up.

So okay start talking to me! Link me to your most adorable Chris Pine and Zach Quinto interviews because I just watched one and HELLO PRECIOUSES!

Baaasically, I love spaceships, I love epic enormous battles against the odds, I love adorable boys, and I love random humor, so basically this movie was awesomecakes. It had me from the get go - I totally teared up when you-know-who bought it. Sniff.

Yaaaay boys on spaceships. \o/

In less awesome news, one of my car's brake drums broke and with other related repairs it's gonna cost over $400. /o\ Awesome.

In other less awesome news, my future roommates spent the day in Ann Arbor looking for houses and had NO LUCK. They simply can't find a four bedroom that's right, all of them were problematic for one big reason or another. So tomorrow they're looking at a five bedroom and a house with two two-bedroom apartments. My fingers are crossed that they like one of them, because we need to find someplace! Almost everything is disappearing already! This is just crazycakes, sigh.

William Shatner was, at one point, actually attractive.

Heh heh heh heh...Yup. :) You owe all of slash fandom to William Shatner. Your people are descended from him. Sorry to break it to you. Maybe these will make you feel better:


X) Movie made me soooo happy. Am writin the fic with [livejournal.com profile] black_regalia nao.

Good luck with apartment and car. :(

Okay fine, NOW I see the Shatner attractiveness. It pains me to say so! But there it is. And oh my god the backrub scene! AHAHAHA. let's be a little MORE blatant. Was that late in the show's run, when slash was already runny rampant? Early fanservice, hee!

Yay fic!

Thank you hon.

XD I cannot remember what episode that backrub scene is from. It has been years since I've properly watched the show. I just remembered that it existed!

And you are welcome. That was probably the slashiest show I had the pleasure to grow up on. :x (Little did my father know I'd later grow up to be a lesbian manporn writer?)

Seconding [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1's comment about how Shatner was attractive back in the day.

You didn't know the origins of the term slash came from Kirk/Spock? I thought that was common knowledge in fandom.

I hope you guys are able to find a good place soon. *crosses fingers*
posted by [identity profile] exsequar.livejournal.com at 03:19am on 12/05/2009
No, I knew Kirk/Spock was the origins, I just didn't know who played them. I know, I know. Star Trek was always this vague amorphous thing that involved pointy ears and a dude named Scotty beaming people up. That's it, honestly. Haha.

Hmm, I can see how he could be considered attractive, but I just see current Shatner in the shape of his eyes and mouth, so I don't know if I could ever get on that boat! /o\

Thank you :( It's kind of upsetting. I like the look of the 5 BR we're looking at though, it's on Lawrence. Fingers crossed...

I can't direct you toward interviews, but I can direct you toward TEH SLASH. ;)

What I've memoried so far:
Kirk/Spock (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=crediniaeth&keyword=Fanfic+-+Star+Trek:+Reboot+-+Kirk/Spock&filter=all)
Kirk/McCoy (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=crediniaeth&keyword=Fanfic+-+Star+Trek:+Reboot+-+Kirk/McCoy&filter=all)
Spock/Uhura (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=crediniaeth&keyword=Fanfic+-+Star+Trek:+Reboot+-+Spock/Uhura&filter=all)
Spock/Uhura/Kirk (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=crediniaeth&keyword=Fanfic+-+Star+Trek:+Reboot+-+OT3&filter=all)

And then there's [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink, the NuTrek anon kink meme. It's actually got some good stuff going on over there.

I'm actually surprised at the quality of the fic in this fandom so far, but considering that TOS Kirk/Spock is the founder of all slash, I shouldn't be. ;)

Well someone's already broken it to you - but I will add that Shatner was also in the original Twilight Zone episode about the guy afraid to fly - who sees a goblin tearing apart the plane.

John Lithgow plays the same character in the same vignette in the 1983 film.

Then on 3rd Rock From the Sun - Shatner plays Lithgow's boss - the Big Head - from the planet they're all from.

Big Giant Head (Shatner): It was a horrible flight! There was a man on the wing of the plane!
Dick Solomon (Lithgow): The same thing happened to me!

Then there's the whole Denny Crane story in Boston Legal.

Plus? Kevin Pollack can't be wrong

Shatner was hot, back in the day! Also, his chemistry with Leonard Nimoy was not to be underestimated, jfc.
posted by [identity profile] walking-paradox.livejournal.com at 07:27am on 12/05/2009
I am watching Star Trek: The Original Series right now and I am constantly shocked by the fact that I find myself attracted to the Shatner. But I can't deny the chemistry between Old Kirk and Old Spock!

Have some pretty & funny:

WINONA RYDER WHAAAAAAAAAT! I am suddenly WAY MORE INCLINED to see it. *g* (Also, I hear Rachel Griffiths is in it as a green something or other? ftw!)

I am so glad people are converting you to the ways of Shatner!Kirk, though I did like the movie too. Pine and Quinto make the slash pairing VASTLY more attractive. :-)

I can't believe you never watched it! Ah well, not everyone is a trekkie :-P
