Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

I gotta say that I really don't care for it much. Uhura is a great character but the whole thing with Spock seems to drag his character down. He's supposed to be the unreachable, logical Vulcan. Not some romantic half-Human. But I don't mind too much. It's just not a pairing that I particularly like.

Well, it looked like that for K/S in STID to me, so maybe...

Not really, no.
If one looks at fanfic all friendships are pulsating with subtext

I value friendship highly and would actually like to see more emphasis on friendship and less on sex - never did fit that well with the mass market...

It's why I avoid "fanfic" like the plague. Years ago I read a few examples, thinking it might be interesting to see a "fan's" take on Trek--apart from a few, isolated ideas (often buried in "subtext"), nada. Gave up on that rather quickly.

You'd have to be looking only at a particular "type" of fanfic to find that being the case. It's like any other form of writing; there's the good, the bad, and the in-between.

I value good writing highly, dealing with love stories I like in particular and a sense of "team." That could be why I don't fit so well with the TOS crowd and why it's looking like this particular Trek isn't for me.

It's okay, though. The "fanfic" writer that I read is actually a published author that just happens to write S/U as a hobby. So, lucky me...

This is so thrilling to me that we agree on this.

There are some lovely, VERY lovely vids on youtube for STID K/S but I don't think I'm allowed to post them as they obviously come from illegally obtained footage since the dvd isn't out.

I can't wait for the frenzy that is coming..

Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

Spock /Uhura it's not a tragic enough story to be a 'true' romantic story. Two very attractive clever professional powerful people getting together isn't romantic enough for me.

I need some unrequited or forbidden love.

Re: Who likes Spock/Uhura too?

IF we get T'Pring then it is not an office romance, it's an AFFAIR!

Because he's taken. By Vulcan custom. To another woman.
