    punsbulletsandpointythings

    Okay no but this book.

    Do you know how fucking long I hunted for a copy of the first edition of this book? I can’t remember the specifics, it’s been ages since I read it, but in the first edition it had some line that was basically confirming Kirk/Spock that was removed after the first printing.

    oh my god are you telling me i found a piece of fandom history and i had no idea

    unpretty

    I AM BACK AT GOODWILL AND IT’S STILL HERE AND IT’S A FIRST EDITION WITH GAY STUFF???? IT’S A DOLLAR?????? I’M

    unpretty

    it starts out with wholesome hand-holding and boyfriends worrying about each other

    they’re in an au now and kirk is an angry ensign with a drug problem

    “being the top felt weird and wrong”

    SOMETHING STIRRED INSIDE HIM

    no matter the universe kirk can’t keep his shirt intact

    THIS IS WHERE SHIT GETS REAL Y’ALL I CAN’T

    THE MIND MELD IS BARELY EVEN A METAPHOR

    KIRK WAS ASKING FOR IT

    aaaaaaaaaaah

    this is the best dollar i have ever spent and yes that includes bearllionaire

    I’d heard about this as some sort of fandom urban legend - everyone heard about it, no one seemed to have hard copy. Nobody was sure if it was some unpublished fanfic, a first draft, vanity press, whatever.

    And it’s real.

    gehayi

    No one had a copy because Gene Roddenberry found out about the romantic undertones and forced Pocket Books to recall the first edition so that it could be drastically revised.

    …PolitiFact going through history to fact check this guy was like that time CNN went through history to dig up dirt on Bernie, and all they found were videos of him planting trees, and telling kids that racism is bad.

    yes hamlet is a brilliant work of literature but i think part of its staying power is that it’s god damn INFINITELY meme-able. i can just be like, girl help i’ve just stabbed the wrong guy through an arras! girl help i’ve just accidentally helped drive my girlfriend slash friend slash beard to suicide in an icy brook! claudius w the poison? a surprise tool that will help us later! gertrude? a milf Perhaps!! not to mention that horatio’s just like ‘hi reddit i can’t remember my best friend’s name and it’s been so long now it’d be too awkward to ask so i just call him my lord, AITA?’ meanwhile hamlet’s soliloquies are the equivalent of a fifty-tweet thread with 0 likes. also rosencrantz and guildenstern are THE two braincell meme AND DONT FORGET that ophelia gets to say the word “cock” out loud to the king’s face. this is why it’s truly a play for the ages

    When I was in 6th grade I was going through my emo phase so one day I came to school wearing all black and my teacher said “What’re you all dressed up for? Going on a hot date?” and in the saddest voice that i could muster I said “Yeah… a date with death” and she stopped talking to me for the rest of the school day

    clicked on a youtube video entitled criticism from your dad | mbmbam ep. 205” and i was like “haha sounds funny i hope they talk about clint” but then

    but then i realized the question was not “how do i deal with criticism from my dad,“ 

    the question was,

    “clint mcelroy left a SCATHING ONE STAR REVIEW on A BOOK THAT I WROTE, IN REAL LIFE, how do i deal with criticism from YOUR dad, CLINT MCELROY”

    WHEN I SAY I’M LOSING IT…

    i’m seeing ads on tumblr for the walker texas ranger reboot starring jared padalecki, and i feel compelled to inform you all that last march, one of the writers who worked under me suddenly quit with literally 0 minutes notice because he got staffed to write on that very show, leaving the rest of us to write the remaining 2/3 of the 6000-word podcast script about genghis khan that he was supposed to have finished at the end of the day. about 2 weeks later, covid hit, and i took some small joy in knowing that film/tv production was grinding to a halt and this guy was going to be unemployed indefinitely as soon as his shitty ass walker texas ranger gig was over. haven’t heard from him since but if you’re out there, brandon: go fuck yourself
