#i????? #he’s literally caressing her face with the barest tips of his fingers #the difference in their body language is incredible and such a reflection of their personalities it’s alarming like #uhura is pure courage and she’s forward and puts her entire hand on the side of his face #there’s nothing tentative in the motion despite the look in her eyes but #spock??? #this is something he can’t explain in words #no matter how many theories of biology or chemistry he spouts #there’s no real formula for this #and that scares him #and when you’re scared to break something #that’s always what you touch with the most care #fuck u (tags via suluboo)
Also important to remember that Vulcans are touch-telepaths- they read people’s thoughts by touching them, and facial contact is especially potent. It’s quite possible he touches her so lightly because he’s trying not to invade her privacy, and trying not to be overwhelmed.
idk man, imagine showing Arthur Weasley a gif for the first time. At first of course he’d just think it was a normal wizard photograph, but then you’d explain that muggles made it and his heart would just explode with joy over these muggles making such amazing shit even though they have no magic at all. How amazing. How inventive.
Maybe whenever you’re feeling bad about yourself imagine how much Arthur Weasley would enjoy meeting you.
