‘Tis I, your newest Trip/T’Pol shipper on deck! Yes, I decided to go all in on a ship two decades past its freshness date but I never let a little thing like being entirely out of step with humanity at large stop me from having fun! Many of you fine and helpful people have shared your wisdom as I have struggled (in vain) to find an active shipping community for my current obsession. I truly appreciate all the sites you have shared, all the history you have recalled for me and all the insights you have imparted upon me. I have come to realize that I will not be able to recreate the fervor of 2004 but that is probably for the best. So, in this, the softly glowing coals of Enterprise fandom, I am attempting to nurture a little flame with which to warm my hands. I would truly and deeply appreciate it if anyone reading this with any similar inclinations would merely share with me some beloved artistic creations. Do you have a long-cherished Trip/T’Pol fic you could link? Is there an artist I ought not to miss? Do you know where to find fan edits that take advantage of the series being available on Blu-ray? Please, pretty please with sugar on top, share these with me in this thread. I do not come begging to you empty handed! I am delighted to share my favorite discoveries with you too! Here is a fan edit that left me in tears on multiple occasions: https://asktriptucker.tumblr.com/post/61156630066 (This starts from the first episode and goes to TATV which is why it ends in me crying so fair warning there but the editing is exquisite and the song choice just clinches the deal.) Here is an incredible fan artist: https://el-im.tumblr.com/post/667348830126227456 (This takes you to a drawing of the cheek kiss from Home but el-im uses their phenomenal artistic talent to draw pretty much everybody from Enterprise so take a peek at their entire #star trek ent tag even if you aren’t a Trip/T’Pol shipper — and thanks for kindly sitting through this if that describes you). Here is that same artist’s fan edit to counteract the first one by making you laugh: https://el-im.tumblr.com/post/682461215929384960/the-vulcan-compound-tpol-lived-in-before-being Now, having been cheered up, here’s a fic that will rip your heart out: https://archiveofourown.org/works/41588487 (teen and up rating - hangover, cursing, description of some injuries) That may possibly get the ball rolling. Please join in if you are so inclined. Thank you!
