Space… the Final Frontier…
I LEGIT THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE.
I don’t care if you want to talk about your day, your past, your fears for the future, or your favorite television show. If you need to talk, I’m here to listen. I love you all, so much. And there are no words to describe how thankful I am to have each and every one of you in my life. I don’t want any of you to ever feel alone… Because you’re not. I’ll always be here.
Aw, hell naw, I wanna get laid, boy.
In all seriousness: I just really, really hate the idea that having mind-blowing, bed-breaking sex and having meaningful conversations are mutually exclusive. They’re not. They shouldn’t be.

But then I’m like “Wait…they don’t have smoldering eyesex and inexplicably suggestive conversations in every single episode? Consistently through the entire run of the series? With no other canonical long-term romances to work around? The creator of the show doesn’t make up words like “t’hy’la” and say things like “we certainly had the feeling that the affection was sufficient for that, if that were the particular style of the 23rd century”? They weren’t canonically the most important people in each other’s lives for three decades? There are no huge sacrifices and epic quests to bring each other back from the dead? And when one of them finally does die, the other doesn’t carry their image in a locket with them at all times for
