eye jewel

(no subject)

So I made ANOTHER community. Good god!
Anyway, it's a Star Trek comm. I know, I know, but I have discovered how much of a sucker I am for a very specific subset of fanwork and thusly want to collect it all in ONE PLACE. (And encourage further creation.)

Weirdly, that subset is: fanworks revolving around the childhoods or de-aging of canon characters. So, like, flashbacks to Spock as a kid, growing up on Vulcan and being told to "Get back in your bowl!" or li'l JT Kirk being all "waaaah I miss my mommy why's she gotta be off planet all the time?" or teeny tiny Leonard McCoy playing "doctor" with neighbor girls and gettin' in troubles. OR (and I like these way better) totally random transporter accidents or cultural miscommunication resulting in the sudden de-aging of a character (or characters) and the rest of the crew having to Deal with That. Then you get teeny tiny Spock getting all moon-eyed about Grownup Kirk, or Chekov accustomed to babysitting twenty russian cousins suddenly saddled with a bridge crew of toddlers, or wee Scotty hitting things with laser-spanners. It can all be surprisingly angsty, or deep, but mostly it's all just SO CUTE OMIGAWD.

So I made a community. startwek exists!

LOOK AT THE BANNER. ON THE LAST DAY OF STARFLEET SUMMER CAMP, KIRK AND SPOCK ARE THE ONLY ONES LEFT! DADDY ISSUES!


So, hey, all you new LJ friends I have, or whoever you are, obviously, the comm needs affiliates, and whatnot. Sometime in the next couple days I'll go through and just arbitrarily link to ST comms I enjoy, but actual *affiliates* are nice too...

ALSO EVERYBODY SHOULD CONTRIBUTE. Somebody draw me a 10 year old Sulu who is TOTALLY into mecha. Like, now plz.
