i read the novelization of tmp. it was really good and i recommend it to anyone who’s interested. as for the others? i have them but i never read them. i just prefer fanfiction honestly.
I would chime in to say I actually just finished reading The Voyage Home novelization and absolutely loved it. There were a lot more introspective details from Spock’s point of view as he’s struggling to remember things from his old life and get back to being himself again, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It really expanded on the lasting implications on Spock and McCoy’s shared mind after McCoy held Spock’s katra for so long as well.
There’s a point near the end of the book where Bones is like, (and this is paraphrased as I don’t have it right in front of me) “I get it, Spock. It’s unnerving as all hell, but for the first time in my life, I really feel I understand you…” and Spock says something like, “Is that really such a bad thing, Doctor?” and Bones is like, “I guess not, but I still don’t like it.”
The book leaves the impression that neither one of them will ever really be fully separate again, like the event has left ghosts of the other’s mind imprinted there, despite the Vulcan healers’ best efforts. Not a mental bond, certainly, but something sort of like it? I like that idea–and I like the idea that having a piece of McCoy walking around with him in this new life eventually helps Spock get back in touch with his more human side.
Shoutout to Vonda N. McIntyre for a great book! She also wrote the novelizations for Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock. I want to also go back and read those now.

nadi-kon: Twin Peaks (TV Series 1990–1991)
Tonight I have something to offer that’s not art…it’s a lovely story. The story of the worst thing I have ever taken part in creating.
So!! Back at the beginning of the second semester of AP Calculus we were taking our first quiz on intergrals, and my teacher told us that he wanted to see the big “S” on our quiz or else we wouldn’t get credit.
Now, by big “S” of course he meant the integral symbol, like this:
But the integral symbol is not the first thing my gremlin brain thinks of when I hear “the big S” and then I got a horrible idea, which I then proceeded to draw and show to my Calc teacher…
It has been dubbed the Cursed Integral by my class and my teacher hates it with all of his being
