"I Like My Vulcans Bad"

Reading the newest Reboot book, The Gemini Agent. It's pretty good but I get distracted by little things, like Spock using the word "okay" and stuff. But I need my Trek fix. Sigh.

I'm not getting any writing done and I'm trying to not freak about stbb or the kushiel fic I'm trying to rewrite. Nothing is coming easily and I keep trying to figure out a way to jumpstart my brain.

ETA: McCoy is NOT from fucking Mississippi! There are Trek WIKIs out there, contract writers, USE THEM!

This one is by the same person as the first, yes? I'm getting it solely for the cracktasticness the first one was with the vacuums.

This one is better written but less cracky. No epic ridiculousness, though I did enjoy Chekov's characterization a lot.

There were a bunch of things that bothered me about 'The Gemini Agent', starting with a SMILING Spock. The Mississippi reference made me grind my teeth.

And there is SO much more than a bromance going on between Jim & Bones.

For me it was all about T'Laya's "unusual" Vulcanness. I kept wanting to go, "Hey guys, remember how Spock is the only Vulcan in Starfleet and that pissed Vulcans off for YEARS cos they are kinda xenophobic an' shit? Also, no McCoy pov even though he's s'posed to like that one chick. *snort*

Even I know McCoy is not from Mississippi!
And I have still a lot of canon stuff to learn...

It annoyed me muchly. Almost as much as there being no XMFC novelization. *sighs*

I agree! People tend to look at me strangely when I start talking to my books, but if the writers had done their homework, I wouldn't need to do that!

The infuriating thing is how EASY it is to fact-check this stuff! Two minutes with Google and the problem is solved, whereas previous writers had very little indeed!!!

It always makes me sad when you are having problems writing, bb. :( *pets your muse and offers chocolate*

Oh, for crying out loud. How could they get McCoy's home state wrong?! O_o

*cuddles you and purrs quietly* <3

And I don't knooooooooooow how they did that. But if McCoy had a brief flirtation I wanted to hear more about it! *grumpsgrumpily*

Should Spock say "affirmative" instead?

Yep. Or "that is correct" or "I am in agreement" or, if it was necessary, have Uhura teach him human slang!!! *grumps*

Was trying to reference this without knowing of your potential familiarity or otherwise with Flight of the Conchords:

*purrs and nuzzles*

It's worse because I have little fragments and conceits, I just can't get solid pieces of things! *sulks*

*shrugs* Maybe it's the Vulcan version of teenage rebellion? You know, using slang and embracing your human half and all that?

Co-signed on the jumpstarting the brain - you'll do it though! \o/\o/\o/

(And even I know that McCoy is from Georgia! Dear oh dear >_>)

OMG I KNOW... I got it from amazon when it came out and was flipping through it to see if I wanted to read it on the bus to work, and saw that bit of text, and I haven't been able to read the thing because I saw that.
