Star Trek Rant #39460175258For those of you that may not know, there is a poll going on at a popular Star Trek fan site. It's titled "Issues with ST:2009 movie" and is designed to get feedback from the fans- a way for the writers to see what the fans didn't like about the first movie and what they need to improve for the sequel. The options are pretty straightforward: 'Kirk became a Captain too fast', 'Vulcan shouldn't have been blown up', 'new ship design', 'not enough villain backstory', etc.
Guess what's winning.
...No, really, guess. You get one guess. And if you get it wrong, spiders will come lay eggs in your mouth while you sleep and when they hatch in your stomach they will eat you alive from the inside out. You have three seconds. Go.
It's Spock/Uhura. Needless to say, I personally am very happy about this, as it's no secret I don't like Spohura (see: http://ava1234567.deviantart.com/art/Why-I-Don-t-Ship-SpockxUhura-280995823 and http://ava1234567.deviantart.com/art/Alternate-Reality-Guys-289577963?q
The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
