Today in weird places my mind goes

Coming downstairs to find the sprogs watching the Star Trek reboot movie for the umpteenth time, and having my head in fanspace after reading 15 Reasons Rebooting Spider-Man Is A Really Bad Idea yesterday, this is the thought that crossed my mind (and it may have already been discussed in fandom, but I am so not googling it):

This image is totally unrelated to my weird thoughts, but is the sort of thing fandom keeps coming up with

Would ‘shipping Old Spock/Young Spock be some ultimate incestuous taboo-squick, or would it just be a peculiarly technologically sophisticated form of masturbation?

Also, I think IASNGI (for I Am So Not Googling It) should immediately become widely used for exactly situations like this.

  2. You get the same question with clones pretty often. Then there’s the issue with hiveminds…
    In this case, you have two separate consciousnesses getting it on, so I’m leaning towards “incestuous sexytimes”. Then again, would the older Spock’s memories be modified through the experiences of the younger Spock? If so, that might be “incestuous sexytimes that give you a headache”.

  3. Oh, tigtog. I have been pondering variations on this question for years.

  4. In other news, the Midsumma festival is hosting a sci-fi speed dating night. So with the right prosthetics, we might be able to find out for sure…
