Shadow on the Wall

“There are times, Catarina, when I find myself transfixed by a shadow on the wall, or the splashing of water on a stone. I stare at it, the hours pass. The world around me drops away, replaced by worlds being created and destroyed by my imagination.”
Leonardo da Vinci hologram
Star Trek: Voyager, “Scorpion, Part 1”

A little bit about me: My name's Denise. I'm a college student, majoring in theater. Ergo, I love to act! I also like big words and spend large portions of my time writing fan fiction and original works. I'm a proud nerd and you'll probably see a plethora of posts related to my various obsessions!

Speaking of my obsessions, I love:
Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Mythbusters, Teen Titans, the Inheritance Cycle, Syfy's Alice, and other wonderful things that I can't think of right now!

FYI: Most of the images and GIFs aren't mine.

So before I saw the Enterprise finale or even Demons/Terra Prime, I suddenly got this idea in my head of oh no…Auntie T’Pol...and just her generally being a small part of Spock’s upbringing and then I started headcanoning it and long story short I almost made myself cry at work.

Now that I’ve finished Enterprise I’m here to make you cry as well.

  • like what if the first time she holds baby Spock she is overcome with emotion because…well.
  • or if she ever gets the opportunity to meet Bones she has to take a moment to collect herself afterwards because that accent.
  • Or T’Pol advising Sarek after he receives his appointment as ambassador to Earth
  • And T’Pol being the one to tell him he should find a Human wife
  • And like no Vulcans ever know about T’Pol and Trip’s relationship but one time when Sarek and Amanda pay a formal visit to T’Pol Amanda finds a picture of Trip and she asks T’Pol about him and T’Pol tells her the whole story because she thinks Amanda will understand
  • And T’Pol being a doting Auntie (but the Vulcan version of doting, like)
  • And telling Spock not to let the bullies get to him
  • and when he doesn’t like how emotional he gets because of his Humanity she tells him a story about “one of the most intelligent people” she’s ever known of any species ever; this woman was so smart she could pick up a language within just a few hours of hearing it for the first time; this woman was prone to emotional outbursts but she still was a genius and amazing and awe-inspiring.
  • And T’Pol and T’Pau having old-lady chats over tea and stuff and making wagers about Spock’s upbringing like T’Pol thinks he will have his emotions under control by the time he’s ten but T’Pau says it’ll be much longer than that, or T’Pau thinks he’ll have human ears but T’Pol swears they will be Vulcan ears.
