Ever since Kirk saw Buzz Lightyear in that archaic Toy Story movie as a kid he'd been on a quest to find infinity, and now years later, he thinks he's finally found it.
Doctor McCoy honestly didn't think of himself as the type of man to treat a patient badly, no matter how infuriating they were. Neither did he think himself the type to willingly ask Spock to teach him something. And he hadn't thought that if he were to ask to be taught anything, that it'd be meditating.
But today, he found himself doing all those things.
The other day when Sulu had asked Chekov if he was scared of the dark the ensign had hastily stammered "N-no!" accompanied by a pink flush and a duck of his head. A bold-faced lie.
Still, there was a certain truth to his fib; the Russian wasn't scared of the dark, oh no. He was terrified of it.
You wouldn't think that working on the Enterprise would help matters much, because out in space the lights were always out.
But surprisingly working as the ships navigator was just what he needed to overcome his fear.
When one of the dilithium crystals powering the Enterprise ruptures Kirk looks to the ships Captain of Engineering, Montogmery Scott; to solve the problem.
As the Spock counts down what could potentially be the last seconds of the crew, the pressure builds.
But all in all, it's just another day on the Enterprise.
At first glance, if you were to look at the crew members of the Enterprise you may not be able to spot who plays what role right away.
But after taking a closer look you'd see who was the Mind, who was the Heart and who was the Soul of the operation.
First Officer Spock is the Mind,
Chief Medical Officer Leonard McCoy, the Heart.
Captain James Tiberius Kirk was the holder of the soul,
and together, the triad created the Trinity of the Enterprise.
A spontaneous or natural liking for someone or something, that was the definition of "affinity."
Sulu thought that that was dead on in terms of his own "affinities."
Just like Doctor McCoy had an affinity for brandy,
Spock an affinity for logic, and the Captain an affinity for women, Sulu had some of his own.
Not just things such as space and fencing, mind you. But Popcorn, and for whatever reason he just couldn't get enough of the stuff.
It was a couple weeks after McCoy had been forced to mind-meld, unwillingly, with the Spock of the mirror universe for information on the transporter accident.
He'd gotten over it, or at least that's what he kept telling himself.
At first he didn't relive the events of that fateful evening unless he was sleeping, but as the days crept on the nightmare stealthily crept itself into reality every once in a blue moon and plagued him throughout the day.
Apparently today there was one of those blue moons somewhere because it chose to creep its way into overtaking his thoughts while he was at a private meeting with Spock over a game of chess. When he was winning, too.

ULTIMATE FAVORITE CHARACTER IN LITERATURE:
Glorfindel. Glorfindel, the Balrog Slayer, from Lord of the Rings. I'm afraid that if I were to go into detail as to exactly why I love the famed elf so much I'd just bore you with my fan-girl-ness. Do note, though, that if you actually wish to hear about my weird ramblings shoot me a PM and I would be most happy to talk to you! :)
MY Lord of the Rings Headcannon:
My headcannon is how I interpert the writings of Tolkien, personally, and portray them in my stories. Though typically I do like to stay as cannon-ly close as possible, I do stray away obviously in some parts. (Aka, slash, etc.) Easily said though, I try to seperate my stories into three sections. (Very similar to that of Seren Lyall's.) Pre-Second War of the Ring, Post-Second War of the Ring and Second War of the Ring. I sometimes lean towards the movies when it comes to the way a character looks, places/settings, etc. Sometimes I completely don't, though. For example; I may write Imladris to look differently to how it was portrayed in the Lord of the Rings movies.
- Glorfindel is the one who collects Frodo. Period. End of the story. Not Arwen, not anybody else. Glorfindel.
- The actor who is thought to have portrayed Glorfindel is not how my Glorfindel looks. Combine the armor of this picture, but not the face as it's a little to stern. With the perfect body and face of this picture mixed with the face of this other picture and you have how I see Glorfindel.
- Glorfindel's hair is a yellow-ish/gold-ish blonde. Not platinum, and nothing like the Mirkwood elves hair. Nothing like them -- at all. His luscious locks are glorious and unique. I cannot stress enough how much it annoys me when people write/make fan art of him otherwise.
- "He was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and clean, and his voice like music; on his brow set wisdom, and in his hand was strength."
- Glorfindel of Rivendell is Glorfindel of Gondolin. There is much speculation about this due to Tolkien having written notes considering this option, but passing before being able to incorporate it into his mythology. But in my headcannon, he is.
- Because of Glorfindel being the very same Glorfindel of Gondolin, he carries many of the same traits from his time before in Middle-Earth to now. For example; he has the same quaint manners, the same lilt in his voice that is unique to only him in all of Imladris.
- I have two different head-cannons for exactly when Glorfindel was re-incarnated and came to live in Imladris. 1.) He came before Elladan and Elrohir were born. Thus having them grow up under his training. And 2.) He came after they were born and are a few months from reaching their Majority.
- The actors who are "supposed" to have portrayed Elladan and Elrohir, like with Glorfindel, are not how I imagine them. Click this lovely image here and you will see just how I perceive them.
- When I write Elladan and Elrohir I like to follow the information in this glorious article.
- Elladan is older then Elrohir by a couple minutes in my head-cannon. Of the two brothers he is probably the most likely to take risks, and will do anything to protect his family. Even if it means harming them in the process.
- Elrohir is the younger twin, and is shorter then Elladan my about an inch. Of the two he is the most sensitive and quiet brother, and inherited the gift of foresight. Which I plan on making a story about just how that came to be found out.
- Elrond is more a harmless bear. He seems intimidating but he really isn't. He's rather gentle, quiet and kind. Despite his high title in Middle Earth he's a fun-loving guy, who cares about his children and is maybe a tad bit strict. But not for himself, but for the safety of those he cares about. But when buisness needs to be done, he'll get it done.
- Elrond is nothing like how he was portrayed in the movies. He was much kinder to Aragorn, his adopted son, when it came to the situation of him being with Arwen.
- Elladan, Elrohir, Arwen adn Aragorn are the only children that Elrond has. No "long lost daughters/sons." Nope, nada.
- Arwen is graceful. Kind, elegant. Everything that is expected of her - she is. As a child though she could be quite the handful :)
- Due to the Human in the blood of Elrond and his heir, there are some elves who are prejudiced against them.
- Elrond and Thranduil are great friends, though they do tend to quarrel a lot. It's mostly over simple matters, and just for the joy of seeing who can win the argument first.
- Thranduil isn't an abusive King or Father. He's incredibly kind and understanding to not only his people but his family. (Read this chapter HERE to understand how I feel about this.)
- Legolas is an only child. No older siblings, no younger. None.
- Legolas isn't an arrogant prince, and he is not helpless either.
- Whilst Aragorn doesn't really want to be King, he doesn't make it such a big deal as he did in the movies. It's more like "I would have preferred not to be put in this position, but if I have too..." then "o.o I can't be a King," type of thing.
- Elrond and Celebrian met after the founding of Imladris. I don't know how or why or when, but that's just how I imagine it.
- Female elves don't differ that much from male elves. They learn how to fight in combat with swords/etc., they learn archery. Undoubtedly not to the extent that male elves do, but for the certain extent that if they were ever put in harm they at least had a chance to survive.
- In time of leave, Female elves will take over the male elves duties. In example; numerous male elves are on abscence for a war, a group of the strongers women elves take over the nightly patrols.
And that's about all of my headcannons I can think of right now...

The (first) Three Laws of Fanfiction:
Rule One: If you do anything to increase the protagonist's power, or make their life easier, you must also amplify their opponent or add extra difficulties to their life. You can't make Frodo a Jedi unless you give Sauron the Death Star. Otherwise, even if it is well-written in all other ways, your story will suck because the reader will know to expect an unending string of easy victories, leading them to neither wonder or care about what happens next. The Mary Sue is not defined by her power being too strong, but by her challenges being too easily overcome.
Rule Two: Originality isn't easy, but it is simple: Just don't do stuff that's already been done. Even if all of your other characters are going to be absolutely true to canon, you still shouldn't have Harry Potter facing the same three challenges in the Triwizard Tournament because we've already read about them a thousand times. Put in three different challenges. Seriously. It can't hurt. Don't just go through the same events everyone has read about a thousand times before. Writing fanfiction lets you borrow the characters and the world; it doesn't exempt you from needing to surprise the readers and give them something new to read.
Rule Three: The premise of a story is a conflict and its resolution - someone with a goal, which they take action to achieve, and severe obstacles that they must replan to deal with (not just speedbumps along the way), and some ultimate resolution of the conflict in which the people and their situation have changed. "What happens if the Terminator is sent back in time to kill Voldemort" is not a story premise, just a fleeting mental image. "What happens if Harry Potter is under constant attack by shape-changing robot assassins" is still not enough of a premise. "Harry Potter is under constant attack by shape-changing assassins, and by the time he manages a spell to wall off the future he's already learned not to trust anyone" could maybe be a story's premise (though you wouldn't put that in the summary, or tell any reader that until the story had ended). You can change this plan later - but you should at least have one to start with.
So if you have a lovely mental image of Frodo with a lightsaber:
1. Figure out how to make his life more difficult, to make up for the lightsaber.
2. Decide what's going to happen differently in your fanfiction than in the other ones you've read.
3. Know what Frodo wants and what's going to get in his way, and have a plan for how it will all end.
The Do's and Don'ts of FanFiction:
'better than it sounds' typically makes the reader think that it "isn't better then it sounds." Also that "you're too lazy to take up a few minutes to make a summary that fits, at the very least, your standards."
'please give it a try' occasionally accompanied by 'first fanfic!' gives the reader the impression that you know your story is shite that you could have done better, but will try to pity/manipulate your way to a review anyway.
Any excuse such as 'sorry, i suck at summaries' is not an excuse. If you're going to take the time out of your own life to write a chapter of a story you can take two minutes to jot down a few sentences about that chapter. It isn't cute.
If the summary does not have proper spelin, caPitaliZatiOn, and pu,nctu.atio!n the story will not either. If the story actually ends up having proper spelling, grammar, etc. no one will know because after that thing you called a summary they're not going to read it.
Straying from canon in the universe is not acceptable.
If you are in the Lord of the Rings universe (or an applicable universe) then Bilbo cannot manipulate the weather around him with his pure willpower.
Possibly the most overused fanfcition technique. PLEASE try to make your original characters original.
Do NOT write yourself into the story. Do NOT write your friends into the story. Just do not do it! No one likes a story where the author lives their fantasies through their characters, or their friends fantasies. It just doesn't work.
Be aware of what a Mary Sue is and attempt to avoid her in your stories, she's nothing but a nuisance.
Just because your character is a male he can still be a Mary Sue, just named Gary Stu. Beware.
I'm writing ... what again?:
Don't avoid knowing facts about a story and in turn write one that will cause you much embarrassment just because you too were too lazy to look up a few things.
It's "hannon le" not "hand on lee".
It's one thing to be unable to write in character it's another thing to not know your character enough to get in character. OOC is not cool. If you start to notice that most of your character's/characters that you're using start acting out of character, control and fix it! (For example; every chapter I write for my Dear Writers of FanFiction story I do a little research on the character beforehand so I have something to fall back on - just in case!)
The English Language:
Alot is not a word. Allot is, but has nothing to do with a lot.
You never get something from 'over their' or 'over they're', you get something from 'over there'. It's not: 'your happy', it's: 'you're happy', this list goes ever on.
If you're on fanfiction.net you have internet. Do not use the word 'happy' over and over again because you cannot think of something else. Use an online thesaurus to come up with words even slightly better like 'cheerful' and 'jovial'. Use the internet to your advantage, my young grasshopper.
If you haven't heard of a word, or are unsure of its absolute meaning, LOOK IT UP before you use it.
A word may not mean what you think it does, for all you know senile can mean rotten fish stomach. (It doesn't that was just an example.)
If you have spellcheck available, don't avoid using it!
You made a choice to read their story and no author deserves to hear that their work is dirt. Flaming is not cool, so don't do it.
Being judgemental helps no one, be helpful instead and give advice.
Laziness is not an excuse when you don't respond to a review on one of you stories!
If someone takes the time to write you a review even if all it says is 'nice' respond back with a 'thanks'. It allows the reader connect with the author and in turn has them coming back for more.
You have the option to have a profile, you should make one!
People will be interested about you, just because you don't think anyone is doesn't mean you should skip that part.
Even if all you say is that you love chocolate ice-cream with cherries and rainbow sprinkles write it down!
Don't NOT write a profile!
Don't update stories once every six months.
No one is going to read your stories if you handle them that way, it's just way to long a wait.
Over seven days is too long a wait!
The whole point of summaries is to give the reader an idea about the story that they may or may not be reading depending on said summary. It doesn't have to give away the whole plot line, but it doesn't have to conceal to much either.
It's always a great idea to include a small part of the plot line, (let the reader wonder) some details and maybe even excerpts from the story. Keep it short, sweet, entertaining and enigmatic!
A great example summary would be: She was just a normal, Tolkien loving fan girl. That is ... until nine of the most charming males in all of literature whisk her away into a new world, or should I say, their world - Middle Earth? With nothing more to go off on then an unlikely promise from one Peregrin Took, she leaves behind everything that she has ever known and sets forth on an adventure she never conceived as possible.
The things that made this summary what it is was that the length wasn't terribly long. It let you know that there is a girl who somehow gets put into the world of Middle Earth and it's going to be a definite adventure. Not only that, but Pippin Took has made a promise to her that she thinks he won't keep.
Definition: To differentiate between the official story line that the written fiction is based off of.
Basically, that means just sticking to the rules that the original story set.
Frodo does not have purple hair in the Tolkien world. Thus to stick to the canon he can't have purple hair in your story.
You can differ from the canon story line by tweaking it, that is okay. If you think that Spock and McCoy "should, like, totally get it on!" you could write them getting together stemming from an important event in the show. I.E.) When Mirror!Spock mind-rapes McCoy. McCoy is left to deal with the aftermath alone, or so he thinks. Then the real Spock comes in and helps him through it, blah di blah di blah. They get close they get closer and BAM! You've got a relationship. (Though hopefully much more thorough and better written then that! )
Another example is re-writing the part [spoiler alert] where Fili and Kili die in The Hobbit and making it so that they don't die.
Definition: A fictional character, usually female and especially in fanfic, whose implausible talents and likableness weaken the story.
That basically sums up the term Mary Sue to a T. But don't let the fear of one writing stop/silence you as an author. Just because your character is a girl doesn't mean she's a Mary Sue, and don't let anybody say so.
The easiest way to avoid writing one is just make sure you know what the definition is!
I'm writing ... what again?:
When writing a story there are a few things you should keep in mind;
Pre-planning; Have the general plot figured out already.
Research; Make sure that you have the information that you need to write this story. (Ex. Knowing how to spell Spock or that Harry Potter lived with his cousin, his Aunt and Uncle before going to Hogwarts.)
If you keep those things checked you will be well on your way to writing a fantastic story.
The English Language:
You don't have to be an English Professor or a High school Language Arts teacher to know anything about the English language.
Avoid common mistakes in your writing, make sure to use punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc. correctly and you're all good to go!
If it doesn't sound right when you say it out loud it probably isn't written right either!
Have ten. They can and will help improve your writing and give you advice.
If you know you are a mediocre author or your beta has been dropping hints (maybe not so subtly) about your work, it might be time for another beta. Just make sure you tell your beta's if you have more than one!
Really, there are people who would just love to edit your work for you. Let them.
If you read the story you should let the author know what you thought of it.
He/She probably spent hours or more writing their story and revising it, for their hard work give up two minutes of your day to tell them what you think.
If you have some criticism for them make sure to give it easily. Don't call them an idiot because they spelled "bacon" like "bakon", even if that is quite idiotic.
After telling them about some spelling, grammar, etc. errors soothe the burn by telling them the things in the story that you really enjoyed reading.
When someone goes to the trouble to give an honest and helpful review to a struggling author, then you give them courtesy by checking them out and in turn giving honest helpful reviews to their work. What goes around comes around, my friend. You might just get more reviews that way.
You MUST reply to all reviews on your story. Make it as simple or as exquisite as you like.
It's yours to do with what you wish. It should have something about you on it, even if all it says is that you have auburn hair, chestnut eyes and have sickly pale skin.
Favourites are a select few, the best of the best. These are authors/stories you really enjoy reading and model your work after. Too many takes away the purpose, these are your favourites.
Should be updated continually.
Should have general plot line planned.
Writing the whole story before posting is a good idea.
Write something that you would be interested in reading.
If you believe in werewolf rights copy and paste this onto your profile. WOOOO! GO REMUS!
If you believe in gay marriage and support it, copy and paste this on to your profile.
