Well the Star Wars showing was apparently a great success. Crystal and Lea are both fans now. :D And, even better, Crystal has no idea about the big secret that comes out in ESB. We're going to watch that one on Saturday, and I'm awaiting her reaction like a kid at Christmas.
See, back in the day my dad actually spoiled the whole thing for me before I ever saw the movies, so it was never a surprise. I've always kind of wanted to see someone react cold to the "big reveal," and it seems I will finally get my chance. :D
She's actually seen the new Trek movie, though, so a great deal of hilarity ensued when the Death Star was introduced and then Alderaan was destroyed, and she was like, "Wait, what? Is this deja vu?"
Speaking of Trek, gonna see it again tonight with Lea.
And also, I have this idea. Let me share it with you.
has already written the definitive fic
about Kirk and Uhura becoming BFFs. I figure she's the one woman who's completely uninterested in him, but whom he still very much respects and likes, and once he realizes that fact, she'll probably be his first ever female friend. And, okay, I admit I have a weakness for opposite gender friendship fic.
So it occurred to me that there should really be a similar thing for Gaila and Spock. I mean, think about it. Would they not make the greatest BFFs? She would be always accusing him of being sexually repressed, and he would be always refuting her with something logical, until she catches him making out with Uhura in the turbolift, after which point denying the facts becomes illogical. And they would get together and talk about how ridiculous humans can be, and inevitably these conversations would devolve into discussing ways to prank Kirk. And then Gaila would start an organization for the non-human members of the crew, which Spock would think was frivolous, so Uhura and Gaila would have to hatch a plot to make him show up to the meetings. And Gaila would be always telling Spock ribald stories to see if she could get a rise out of him, but when that gets boring they'd spend hours talking about complex equations, which would end up becoming a conversation about humans and their propensity to the ridiculous, Captain Kirk in particular. And someone write me this fic, please, or I may have to write it myself.
