I request permission to go after him. 

 Jim, you’re not actually going after this guy, are you? 

#seriously bones’s hand placement is killing me   #it’s so deliberate   #like he’s had three years to perfect the art of keeping jim still for two seconds in the most efficient way possible   #hand wedged under his arm strategically thumb ready to attack a pressure point that made jim yelp the first time  #except now jim’s like conditioned   #bones barely has to touch him and jim just stops and leans into it  #i hate this

I, too, wish to draw attention to the hold McCoy has on Jim in that top right hand gif there, but not from any ship-related reasons. That, ladies and gentlemen, is an example of med win

You’re right, previous tagger, that’s the best place to hold Jim to get him to be still. It’s how you hold anyone who isn’t steady on their feet, or needs guidance, or that you as a medical person (be it doctor or nurse) need to control the movements of just a little bit. If you’re standing in front of them and you need to give them some support or exert some control over their movements, that is exactly how you hold a patient so that you can do that without hurting them. 

Normally whenever anything or anyone medical is involved in a show or film, there are inevitably horrendous inaccuracies that really ruin it for me. But this? This is a tiny detail, the tiniest of tiny details, and knowingly or not it is one hundred percent accurate, and I want to give Karl a medal for it.

I had to share it with you because I can’t stop laughing, and every time I reread it it just gets funnier and fUNNIER

This fan fiction is older than the push-through tabs on soda cans.

Your grandma wrote this on her Commodore 64.

I miss my Commodore 64

Oh my dear, sweet children. The Commodore 64 came out in 1982. This was produced on a typewriter and probably mimeographed. And while it may seem funny now, it took more courage to write and distribute this than you will ever  know.

Reblogged for that last comment.

reminder that james t kirk

  • was a walking stack of books during his academy days
  • was way too immersed in his studies until he fell head over heels for a woman who he almost married
  • plays 3d chess
  • likes classic earth literature to the point where bones got him antique reading glasses
  • is basically on good terms with all his exes that we know
  • puts his crew and his ship before his love life
  • literally the only times you see him use physical seduction on female characters is when a mission or lives are at stake, with most women he is completely respectful and on the rare occasion you see him trying to woo someone in sincerity it’s rather gentle courtship

reminder that james t kirk is a giant cute nerd who happens to be a competent captain and total hottie who loves a good fight but is also super sneaky when he needs to be and i just wish the reboot universe kirk was allowed to grow and develop in ways that showed he was still fundamentally this character instead of every troubled young man trope ever
