mijan: (Kirk is Awesome)
I discovered a new "costume" that I can put together out of my closet. Based on leaked paparazzi pictures from the set of the new Star Trek movie:



(Close-ups available here: http://ontd-pinto.livejournal.com/418647.html)

I've got that EXACT shirt. I have a cut-out I've already made for an insignia-shaped stencil, and a temporary silver-grey spray. I have the boots. I have the grey dress slacks. And... this is MINE.

I am so amused.

Title: "And Other Duties As Assigned"
Rating: PG
Characters: Kirk, McCoy, OC
Words: 340
Summary: Kirk is on his way back from a solo mission via shuttlecraft to retrieve an Ambassador, and discovers the meaning of the "... and other duties as assigned" clause in his contract.
Notes: I'm not actually responsible for this. I wrote it on a dare. A very evil dare. But it might make you giggle, so I'm posting it.



“Dammit, Bones, I'm a Captain, not a doctor!”

The chuckle on the other end of the subspace channel was telling. And infuriating. “Well, Captain, today you can be both.

“This shouldn't be happening! But we think the gravity fluctuations we hit might have triggered it.” Jim shook his head to himself. Three hours out from rendezvous with the Enterprise. Transporting the Caitian Ambassador. Who was now in labor.

“I can't do this! If she was human, I might have a clue, but this is... I don't even...”

Oh, it's pretty simple, Jim. You let her hold your hand -

“She's got claws, Bones!”

- through the contractions, catch the kittens, and clean them up.

“How am I supposed to – wait, did you say kittens? As in... more than one?”

The Caitian Ambassador glared up at him. “I am carrying four kits, Kirk, which is normal for my race. And without my mate here, I shall need you to act in his place.”

Jim felt his eyes widen. “I... what do I need to do?”

“The kits must be cleansed the proper way to ensure health and vitality. The mate must assist.” She looked at him skeptically. “I do not think your species' tongue is properly developed for the task, but I have been told that humans are versatile.”

It took every scrap of Starfleet's considerable diplomatic training for Jim to keep his expression calm. “Just one second,” he said to the Ambassador before turning and hissing in an undertone into the comm panel. “I'm supposed to lick the kits clean?”

Come on now, you've never had a problem lick -

“And that will be quite enough, Doctor McCoy.”

You wouldn't have respected me if I hadn't said it.

That was true. But still. “You've got to help me with this, Bones.” It was a pitiful whine.

You're on yer own, Jim. Spock's got us at maximum warp, but unless something goes wrong, you'll be fine. Comm if there's a problem.

“Yeah. Kirk out,” Jim said, slapping the comm panel. “Dammit, Bones.”
mijan: (Kirk: o hai!)
I posted pictures from the presentation of this skit HERE. But I didn't give you guys the ACTUAL skit. I'll post video soon, but for now:

(NOTES: Words in RED are overlapping dialogue, where you have both characters talking over each other. Words in GREEN are where my sister, standing behind the screen, off-stage, throws stuff at me.)

TITLE: “NO WIN SCENARIO.”

Tanya: No, I don't want to hear another word, James T. Kirk! Obnoxious, pig-headed, hormone-driven – AAAH! I knew I couldn't trust you! OUT!

Kirk: But if you'll just listen, it's not what it sounds like! I swear, hey, ouch! Easy there! WHOA!

(Kirk stumbles onto stage, as if just shoved out a door. He's wearing nothing but his jacket, boxer-briefs, and one sock. He's trying to zip up his uniform jacket as he stumbles and talks.)

T: I thought you weren't seeing that Orion girl!

K: What?!? I'm not! That’s just Gaila from my seminar! She's just... I mean... she was walking by and... have you ever seen an Orion?

T: I knew it! (THROWS BOOT)

K: (*dodges boot*) HEY! That almost hit me!

T: GOOD! Maybe you'll learn not to go messing around with other girls when you're already spoken for! So-called advanced civilization, and you men are still acting like Neanderthals! (THROWS SOCK)

K: Spoken for... what? You and I went out on two dates! It's not... Neanderthal? Come on, Tammy -

T: TANYA! My name is TANYA! AAAA!!! (THROWS OTHER BOOT)

Kirk: (*dodges again*) Come on, Tanya! Can we talk about this??

(Sound of door hissing shut.)

K: (dejected) You have got to be kidding me. (*bends over to pick up a boot*)

Uhura: (*cat-call whistles*) So, not only farm animals?

K: (startled, turning around) Uhura! (embarrassed, but trying to flirt) Nice to see you! So... now that I've bared all for you, how about that first name?

Uhura: (MOAR disgusted) Ugh. Put some pants on, Kirk.

(sound of FASTER footsteps walking away, three to four second of footsteps, fading off.)

Kirk: (grumbles) Great. Just great. (shakes head as he turns towards "Tanya's" side of the stage.)
(at Tanya through the door, sounding PATHETIC) Can I at least have my pants?

(THROW PANTS - HIT KIRK IN THE FACE)

K: (Sarcastically) Thanks. (Mumbling, while trying to put pants on) I barely looked at that Orion... (Pause) Pheromones... it's just pheromones.  (Pause)  Uhura is never gonna let me live this down. She’ll tell Bones. Pike. CUPCAKE. Gaila.  (Another pause. Suddenly, Kirk looks really pleased.) GAILA.

Hey all! It's time for the USS Macchiato's annual holiday party!

This year, I'm trying to see if we can launch something a little bit special, a little bit crazy. The PLANNING POST is up, so go over there ASAP and respond to the poll. Help us pick a date. Let's get this party started!

Hailing frequencies open!

mijan: (Kirk had a blast)
I got everyone's comments on my last post. I've only been online sporadically because I'm on vacation at my mom's house now, and have been running around seeing friends I've not seen in a long time. I'm going to try to reply to some of them in a minute, but there's no way I'll be able to reply to everyone. Please don't be mad at me for not replying to everyone. I feel bad because it feels like I'm ignoring people, but I'm not.

Anyway, even though it doesn't seem like it now, there was more to the convention than just meeting Shatner. It was the singular most unexpected thing, that's for sure, and the flashiest occurrence, but it wasn't the whole story. Not even close.




So, that's it. Fantastic time at the Trek convention. I wish I'd been there for the whole thing, but how can I regret anything? It was fun. :)

Shatner.

I met William Shatner today.

I managed to get in line to ask him question during his presentation at the convention, and was close enough to the front of the line that I got to the microphone.

I asked him the question I've wanted to ask the man for years -- in short, does his portrayal of Kirk mean something to him (beyond just a paycheck), and what aspect of his role in Star Trek does he want to be remembered for. I told him that his role as Kirk had an influence on my military career.

He asked for me to tell him about that, in more detail. I said it was a long story and didn't want to monopolize the microphone. He said to break it down into one-liners and tell the story anyway. So I did. A very abbreviated version, but I told my story, and explained the key things that Kirk did or said that had the most direct impacts on my life and career.

The Shat had a moment. He really did. I watched as the wall came down, and he looked at me as I told this story, with this look of complete enthrallment on his face.

And yes, the wall came down. He talked about how he talked with Patrick Stewart, who spoke of his role as Captain of the Enterprise with pride, and said that yes, the role meant something more than just a paycheck and a simple sci-fi role, and that it matters. And that hearing it from another "serious" actor like Patrick Stewart made him think about it, and reconsider.  And that he started hearing the stories from fans who have been deeply inspired.

And he said that after the original series was over, people would shout out to him, "Beam me up, Scotty," and stuff like that, and he started to wonder if people were mocking him. And suddenly, I understood why Shatner would be defensive and stand-offish to fans. It makes sense.

We chatted back and forth, and he held out his hand and asked me to come up and shake his hand. He gave me a strong, warm handshake, and I looked at him, and I just wanted to give him a hug. So I asked.

He pulled me up on stage and gave me a hug that felt like the sort of hug you give to a friend you haven't see in years but miss dearly. And I said in his ear, "Thank you." And he said, "Thank you."



(By the way, he isn't tall.)



I cried. I think he got misty eyed. Everyone in the room had a moment.

I'm still a bit in shock.


I've said many times that I wasn't sure what I thought of Shatner. I'd heard enough stories back and forth, positive and negative, that I didn't know what to think. I said that I would reserve judgement until I met him for myself.

I've met him now. And I have nothing but love for the man.

The following message comes straight from the director of Trek Fest (he and I are in touch), and he asked me to post it to my groups:
_______________________________________________________________

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

William Shatner and fans help save TrekFest XXVII (June 24-25, 2011)

TrekFest is a small-town festival with a Star Trek theme. Riverside, Iowa is the official Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk - the character played by William Shatner in the original 1960's Star Trek television series.

Riverside, IA (June 15, 2011) - The Riverside Area Community Club (RACC) in Riverside, Iowa (the small town known worldwide as The Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk) almost canceled TrekFest XXVII due to lack of funding. The news hit the media and then local businesses, organizations and fans worldwide stepped up with donations allowing TrekFest to take place this June 24th to 25th.

The amount needed was at minimum $10,000. Mindbridge Foundation graciously donated $5,000, the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort $3,000 and The River Products Company of Iowa City gave $1,500. Several contributions from local businesses and residents flowed in along with online donations from people worldwide (as far as Australia) to help save the event. The Iowa City Yaht Club opened its doors for a special concert performed by local bands to raise money. Actor William Shatner also playing a part in keeping TrekFest alive.

In 2004, William Shatner (who played Star Trek's Captain Kirk in the 1960's TV series) filmed INVASION IOWA in Riverside, IA (a Spike-TV reality show). He developed a bond with the local townspeople and promised he would one day come back to Riverside for TrekFest after the casino was built. Since then, RACC invited Shatner to attend each year, and each time he has declined due to his busy schedule. This prompted a Star Trek fan from Kansas to start a Facebook page called “William Shatner should keep his promise and come to TrekFest.” Members of this page and other online fans worldwide ended up donating over $700.

Shatner responded to this year's invitation in a letter to RACC, “Once again I have to tell you that I'm not able to make it to Riverside. I certainly remember you all fondly and hope everyone is in good health and happy. If there is something I can send for you to auction off to help with your community fund, I'd be delighted to do so.”

RACC accepted and Shatner sent two items to be auctioned off and will be announced in the near future.

Bands performing in Hall Park will be Friday: INSECTOID (9pm). Saturday: SYNTHAHOLICS BAND (11:15am); FIVE YEAR MISSION (9:30pm) is a band based out Indiana who offered to come to TrekFest to keep the event alive. Their Mission: Our goal is to take every episode of the original Star Trek, write a song about it, record it, and play it. In the end, there will be five full-length CDs full of Star Trek goodness for all to enjoy. The popular WHO'Z PLAY'IN will take stage at 9pm.

TrekFest highlights include a Demo Derby (Fri, 7:30pm), Saturday Parade at 10am (theme “Assignment Earth” - candy will be tossed to the kids), a Sci-Fi Swap Meet (11am), Costume Contest (1pm). BBQ meals and carnival rides. The event will end with a fireworks show (paid for by the City of Riverside) at 10pm. For an extensive list of TrekFest's family-friendly events, visit www.trekfest.com.

The Riverside Area Community Club is grateful to all their fans (local and worldwide) for keeping TrekFest alive. Ken McCracken (president of RACC) said, “Without the fans, there would literally be no TrekFest.”

TrekFest hopes to continue to live long and prosper. And who knows, maybe one day in the near future William Shatner will accept RACC's invitation to TrekFest and once again come home to The Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk.


About

In 1984, former city councilman, Steve Miller, came up with the idea to dub Riverside, Iowa - The Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk. This far out idea was approved by the city and by Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry. The town's annual River Fest celebration was renamed TrekFest and has lived long and prospered ever since. The Riverside Area Community Club (RACC) plans and implements TrekFest annually. Money raised by RACC is used to help out the community with academic scholarships, new playground equipment and other events.

This is a subtle, complex look at the physical and psychological ramifications of forced pregnancy on a male through biomedical experimentation. The characters are not throwing a baby shower.

Notes: First, I’ve never done a collaboration before. Some of this is my work, some of it is Gone_Ashore's work. In some spots, our writing is so mingled we’ve lost track. We’ve decided to both post on our LJ’s, so you’ll see it in both places. Read and comment wherever you prefer.

As far as the trope of mpreg… don’t let the subject matter fool you! This is mpreg, but it’s not crack. It’s actually a serious attempt to deal with the issues (psychological, medical, practical) that would come up should a man find himself pregnant as a result of a non-con situation. We’re exploring the conflicts, gender issues, the medical train wreck, the alien bioengineering technology, and the potential fallout. Although every author’s approach to mpreg is different, we’re trying for something unusual. I’ve never written mpreg before. I’d never planned to do it. I got pulled into this fic as a beta, and quickly became a collaborating author. This is the only way I could ever write mpreg. If you trust my writing and you trust me not to fuck up a trope, give it a try.


*********

Part One )
mijan: (To Boldly Go...)
So, I'm working on a collaboration fic.  It didn't start out that way.  You see, gone_ashore had a Brilliant Idea (TM), and needed a beta with some general medical knowledge and an eye for tormenting Jim Kirk in every possible way.  As she began working, and I began beta'ing, it slowly morphed into a collaboration.  I started supplying more and more content, and finally we realized that we might as well turn it into a collab.  I've NEVER done a collaboration before, so this... is something new for me on many levels.

I went back and modified the first couple of sections (marking my territory?), we both went over the edits, and we're just about ready to post Part 3.  The thing is, we decided that we'd like to have the fic posted on BOTH of our journals.  So, before we post Part 3, I'm going to post the first two parts on my journal.  Part 1 is going up today, and Part 2 is going up tomorrow.  Then, we'll both post Part 3 simultaneously on our respective journals.  Read and comment wherever you prefer.

Now, here's the clincher.  This is an mpreg fic.  NO, this is not about magical ass babies.  No, we're not talking about men turning into women, physically OR emotionally.  In our classic tradition of absolutely tormenting Jim Kirk, the situation is one of alien biomedical experimentation and engineering, and this is NOT a happy, consenting, expectant good time.  It's a medical train wreck and a psychological disaster.  (Good times, eh?)  As always, it's a character exploration.  

If you generally avoid reading mpreg because it:
- glosses over medical impossibilities
- turns male characters into women
- ignores deep-seated gender psychology
- is a fluffy, crack-tastic "omg baby!" fanfiction trope
... then give our fic a try.  We're doing something different. 

Then, maybe, if I can survive writing this fic, I'll finally be able to make myself write the H/D mpreg fic that I promised someone so long ago.  *sigh*

Anyway, the first section will be posted on my journal soon.  I dare you to read it.  ;)

Title: "For All the Right Reasons"
Rating: R
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Word Count: 10,000
Warnings: Discussion of BDSM topics and depression.
Notes: This fic is the other “side” of my story “The Harder They Fall.” People asked what led up to that story, what Bones was thinking, and how something like that could work… so here it is. This story does NOT contain the actual BDSM scene. This story does not have any sex scenes. Instead, this story goes into the events leading up to the start of THTF, and what Bones was thinking.

Summary: Leonard knew that Jim was suffering some heavy emotional fallout from his first failure of the Kobayashi Maru, but he hadn’t understood why until Jim came to him with a request that would push him to the breaking point.
