Being Alone by slashygirl Being Alone by slashygirl
I am alone in my thoughts.

No one is here.

Such solitude, such despair.

No one to share my flawless calculations.

No one to discuss the odds of a possible outcome.

No one to find contentment in my logic.

It is foreign to them.

They do not understand.

Nor do they want too.

Being alone, I know what it is like.

You are minute, small, inconsequential.

The others partake in their joyous exuberance.

But you are excluded from their celebration.

For why would they want you there?

You are not like them, even though you share their lineage.

You are different, devil like, cold, unfeeling.

Being alone, yes, I know what it is like.

"Mr. Spock, would you like to play a game of chess after your shift?"

"I would."

"I am looking forward to winning this time. You've won way too many lately."


"I am glad Spock that you play a game us Humans play. Bones is not very good at it, but you are a worthy opponent. Just to let you know Spock, it makes me feel less alone, when you play with me. I appreciate that. Thanks."

"Your are welcome, Captain."

"The name is Jim, Spock. All my friends call me Jim."

"Thank you, Jim."

Being alone, he also knows what it is like.

I hope some day you'll do one of these poems of Spock for the love he had for poor Zarabeth.

Oh my this is so so poignant...
Oh God I love that, I love that so so much~

I love your words for Spock lineliness. His yearning for someone to share his passion for logic, to wonder with him at the marvels of reasoning <3 <3
And Jim reaching for him~
Thanks so much <3 <3 <3

Thanks. It may not look all that slashy when we see him and Zarabeth, but at the end of this little piece we get to see that he isn't alone, that Jim feels the same way. They have a connection there.  If you follow this link you'll see the added pictures to go with it, I don't know how to add more on deviant art.…

Oh my I love this exchange of glances you've chosen as illustration~
As if the warmth travelled from Jim to Spock~ Humm~ Looooooooooooove that <3 <3 Jim's smile making Spock smile in response Awwwwww that Spirk feeling <3 <3 <3
And that was so so early in TOS time O_O second episode ever filmed wow XD

Guys, you did not wait long to notice each other XD

No they didn't wait long and besides that we see them playing chess together. Spock is all smiles here, a bit too much though, but they were creating his character, it was still early in the show. Another thing, Spock had a tendency to scream out his commands as he did in the pilot The Cage. I think he did that for a few episodes when he finally stopped. It's fun trying to find screencaps where they look at each other like that.

Yes, I read Nimoy explaining how he built Spock's character bit by bit, and speaking about the OOC parts in the Cage and Where no man has gone before (the smiles, the shouting and so on). He told that it was in The Corbomide Manoeuvre that he really felt Spock was born, when he calmy said "Fascinating" when discovering that alien vessel on the viewscreen ^^

And I love to see the result of your searching ^^ You've got such acute eyes for Spirky things ^^
