coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)
Friday, May 26th, 2017 01:34 pm
Canon: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Pairing: Jean-Luc Picard/Q
Canon Level: Antagonists

Q seems to take a lot of joy from antagonizing Picard and delights when Picard manages to beat his challenges. And while Picard is certainly irritated by Q and the deadly games he plays with Enterprise crew, I think Picard has too much curiosity to not be fascinated in Q and what he can do and all the potential that's wrapped up in Q's being. Could Q manage a romance with a mortal? Eh, maybe, maybe not. But I do think he'd enjoy making the effort at a serious something even if it's not a traditional romance.

Canon: Star Trek: Challenger
Pairing: Nick Keller/Shucorion
Canon Level: Colleagues, I think

So the Challenger series was supposed to be a spin-off series of books starring a whole new cast. The origin was the TOS New Earth series, and the only books to get published were the one-and-a-half books as part of the Gateways series crossover event. I read all those Gateways books because I was way more completionist about things then, and I am still disgruntled that they never published more of this series. I don't actually own the book anymore, or else I'd have reread it in preparation for this entry. From what I recall though, Keller was the human captain and Shucorion the alien somebody. I don't think he was Starfleet. Either way, I do remember there's a moment in Chainmail where Keller gets abducted from the bridge and Shucorion is upset by this. Not just regular ol' upset, but Very Visibly Upset, and a ship for a book no one else cares or even knows about was born.

I don't do the [community profile] fannish5 questions too often because I can never think up answers easily, but I wanted to do this one because I immediately thought of a best father.

Robert Hawkins (Static Shock) is a fantastic father, and the relationship between the entire Hawkins family is one of my favorite aspects of the show.

Donald Duck (Quack Pack) was essentially Huey, Dewey, and Louie's father. I'm not at all familiar with the Donald Duck comics, but I'll always be fond of Quack Pack and the mutually antagonistic but ultimately loving relationship between Donald and his teenage nephews.

Benjamin Sisko (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and Jake had a relationship that I just loved watching. They loved each other, and each was made stronger by that love. Deep Space Nine would not have been as good a show if Sisko hadn't been a father.

Splinter (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) managed to raise four highly energetic boys completely by himself. It's impressive when you think about it.

James (The Princess and the Frog) is such an important character even though he's in so little of it and that's because he was such a wonderful father for Tiana. This became my favorite Disney movie the first time I saw it, and Tiana's parents are probably the second biggest reason why.

This week's [community profile] fannish5 -- name your five favorite spaceships -- is surprisingly tough! I had to do research to come up with five I really liked as opposed to five I could easily remember.

The Enterprise-D (Star Trek: The Next Generation) is definitely number one. TNG was my first fannish love, back when I was still in elementary school, and I can't choose anything else. The others aren't in any particular order.

The USS Defiant (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) is an awesomely tough little ship, and DS9 was made even better by its addition to the show. Plus it's the only Federation ship with a cloaking device. Totally cool.

The TARDIS (Doctor Who)! It travels in both time and space. Who wouldn't want to catch a ride in it?

Rama (Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama) was my introduction to hard scifi, so I have a soft spot for it.

And finally Ryo-Ohki (Tenchi Muyo!) because it's a spaceship that turns into a cute cat/rabbit animal.

I'm in New Orleans with [ profile] glenraven and having fun. :) I'm vastly amused by the fact that I've managed to convert Christal to Nero Wolfe. I'd brought the first season down over spring break, and I'd thought she'd mostly ignored the episodes. But! She asked me to bring down second season as well as a couple books for her to try. And we watched three episodes last night, and she also agrees Nero and Archie are married. It's not even subtle; they're totally married.

I've also been making good progress on the Star Trek: Gateways series. They're surprisingly good, though I'm tired of the books ending with someone walking through a gateway and "To be continued...." It doesn't help that I fell in love with Shucorion and now 'ship Keller/Shucorion from the second book but have to wait for the seventh book for that bit to be resloved. (And for it to be tied into the grand story arc, for that matter....) And, according to Google, there is no fic set in that universe. Very sad.

Dunno if anyone reads this, but I finished a story last night. It's an Imzadi fic and can be found here at It's about Riker and Troi's second honeymoon since the first one got cut short. I quite enjoyed writing it, so maybe you'll like reading it.

It's Spock as you've never seen him before!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, dear Lord. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it.
