i just realized something.
okay so i’m not someone who very grammar-savvy, so please correct me if i’m wrong, but spock’s saying “i have been and always/ever shall be your friend”
doesn’t anyone notice that spock always places himself as the possessed object in that sentence? (christ that sounds bad but i don’t know how else to put it).
like spock is jim’s friend. he never outright claims jim as his friend (even though it’s pretty obvious that jim is his friend). let’s all take a moment and remember the “when i feel friendship for you, i’m ashamed.” in ‘the naked time’ episode? so this whole (un)intentional wording is probably just because he’s vulcan and that is his backwards way of admitting he cares for jim, or whatever.
but in the new movie, spock says “because you are my friend.”
nu!spock claims ownership of jim’s friendship while tos!spock always kind of avoided it. jim is spock’s friend. and that says to me that spock has not only accepted jim’s friendship a hell of a lot sooner than tos!spock, but he’s also accepted his feelings attributed to their friendship. and i know, obviously it’s earlier in their timeline, but i also mean in the amount of time that they’ve known eachother compared to tos!spirk.
IT’S JUST- MY BABIES HAVE COME SO FAR. <3333
so have I mentioned how much I’m loving star trek tos

it doesn’t matter if he walks into a drinking establishment or a metal support beam, because he gets injured either way.
They had never met before, but decided to hug it out in the middle of an airport terminal.
