Anonymous said: i was wondering if all vulcans absolutely had to be unemotional and logical. i wanted to make a vulcan character who is infatuated with the emotional capacity of other species and often tries to emulate (lets say human) emotions. would that be breaking canon a bit? she'd be incredibly awkward and 2D while doing it and make everyone uncomfortable as well, and she'd still be a very logical vulcan.
The thing about Vulcans is that they aren’t naturally emotionless. Vulcans used to be a very violent and warlike species, until Surak developed the principles of logic and emotional control that ended up saving the species from extinction via self-destruction. (They would have ended up killing everyone because their emotions are so strong, is what I’m saying.) The Vulcans decided to live by these Surakian principles and embrace a peaceful society instead. Because Vulcan emotions are so strong and deep-rooted, it would actually be quite dangerous for a Vulcan to give in to emotion.
My friends who study Vulcan culture can probably correct me a bit on this, but that’s the gist of it!
Isn’t the girl bothered by the fact that she only got a boyfriend because of pity?This information implies that pity was the only reason;it doesn’t say if something else caused him to offer to date her.
Yeah. But I’m more worried about the fact that she’s 15 and Kirk is like 25.
Hmmm… we might need to do an extension on the contest. We only have 1 entry so far, and I just realized I never announced any prizes!
Would it help get more entries if I actually did that, do you think? XD
So, the contest has been EXTENDED until a month from now, AUGUST 20TH, until we can get this situation back in order and drum up some prizes!!
Oh my gosh, is it really that time already?!
The contest ends tomorrow night!! Get those entries in! :D
Sweet mother of god how do you mix a unicorn and a Vulcan?
With a little champagne, candles, and some smooth jazz.

I mean, if you're a bigot, then I guess it's okay, but if you didn't really mean it that way... yeah, that is the way it's taken by the member of the group you just othered and mocked by suggesting their attempt to share is a misguided attempt at belonging that will not be accepted.
Oh wow, my first anon hate! :)
I’m sorry you think I’m a bigot. That’s not what I meant. There is a difference between sharing about your disability, and using it purely to garner attention and sympathy from other people. That’s rude and wrong.
Additionally, you should not give your character a disability just to get attention or to demand “pity” from other people, because that puts their disability in the forefront and lessens their value as a regular person inherently deserving respect, purely in the name of humanity.
Basically, don’t use disabilities as an attention-getting device, whether you’re a real person or creating a character! It’s selfish.
