[I think Spock might have an issue with this one, because as a doctor Leo touches people a lot. Foreheads, hands, body parts, and he’s always so gentle about it that to a Vulcan it must look intimate. And in a certain way, for Leo it must be, because he occupies this strange limbo where he’s a complete stranger to most of these bodies, and yet they trust him entirely with their well-being.
So maybe Spock holds off on that little part of Vulcan culture for months until Leo asks about it casually over dinner, and, reluctantly Spock tries it, and realizes through the flood of emotion that the way Leo touches him and the way Leo touches his patients is completely different and he has nothing to worry about.]
To any newly minted TOS Trekkies following me…
this is a small taste of what you have to look forward to. Rejoice and be glad.

au where a crotchety young spock lives next door to too-long best friends jim and bones and when christmas rolls around they deck out spock’s house and won’t let him take the lights down so the house becomes a beacon of begrudging festivity through the holiday season

I’d say Sokka is my favorite character on the show, but let’s be honest- they’re all my favorite character on the show.

You know when you need to practice speaking a language but you don’t want to speak it in front of native speakers because you’re worried they will judge you for your poor grammar skills and limited vocabulary
Dumb airbrushed spones comic to cheer me up a bit.
I wanted to draw Bone’s face today u v u
I started with the intention of making a “haha, Bones never changes” post, but then I realized:
In the first instance he’s defending the fact that he ignored a Red Alert, hiding it from Kirk when it started going off during his physical. He clearly does it out of concern for Kirk’s health, but that’s not how the scene goes—they snap at each other about it, Kirk leaves in a huff, and Bones end up alone and feigning maybe the most apathetic worldview possible: I saw there was an emergency; I just didn’t care.
In the second instance, he’s openly freaking out about Kirk being in danger. He’s rehearsing the lecture he’s gonna give the little twerp over s’mores in a few hours. He’s talking to himself, but he’s talking about how worried he is. And there’s no red alert—nobody else is telling him that he should be concerned; he just is.
Don’t get me wrong, Bones is always Bones, but between where we meet him and where we leave him, he gets a lot better at expressing about how much he cares about people.
(And also, perhaps more importantly, amasses an extensive collection of pastel-tone Carhartts and camping ascots.)
