Am reading Star Trek: The Motion Picture which I got for a quarter at the library book sale yesterday.

It's way too adorable. Especially the footnotes. Like, for instance, this one. Spock is thinking:

Jim! Goodbye my... my t'hy'la.*this is the last time I will ever permit myself to think of you or ever your name again.

*Editor's note: The human concept of friend is most nearly duplicated in Vulcan thought by the term t'hy'la, which can also mean brother or lover. [At this point I practically had a heart attack from the canon.] Spock's recollection (from which this chapter has drawn) is that it was a most difficult moment for him since he did indeed consider Kirk to have become his brother. However, because t'hy'la can be used to mean lover, and since Kirk's and Spock's friendship was unusually close, this has led to some speculation over whether they had actually indeed become lovers. [*cough* OMG *cough* I never heard that kind of speculation! Like, ever!] At our request, Admiral Kirk supplied the following comment on this subject:

"I was never aware of this lovers rumor, although I have been told that Spock encountered it several times. Apparently he had always dismissed it with his characteristic lifting of his right eyebrow which usually connoted some combination of surprise, disbelief, and/or annoyance. As for myself, although I have no moral or other objections to physical love in its many Earthly, alien, and mixed forms [IDIC!], I have always found my best gratification in that creature woman. [Okay, who thinks the Admiral doth protest too much?] Also, I would dislike being thought of as so foolish that I would select a love partner who came into sexual heat only once every seven years."

End quote.

Ohhhh, the denials, the protestations of hetness! It's too adorable. This book is causing me insane gigglefits of slashy glee.
