Let’s see which version people like better.

How weird do Klingons look with short hair?

Damn, this took me a long time. I have a new job and it’s kind of a time-suck. I also apologize to all the people whose messages/emails I haven’t returned, because I suck. I’m very sorry and I will endeavor to do better.

So I wasn’t going to, but certain unnamed persons have convinced me to round out the genderswap series with TOS.

(Okay, it didn’t take that much convincing.)

To that end, here are some pertinent questions to which I require answers. Spock or T’Pock? Does anyone know Swahili and can give me a plausible male version of Nyota? Did you know zat minidresses and black boots were inwented in Russia? Чесслово.

I’m also going to be doing the Frostiron Bang and making a cosplay for NYCC, aww yeah, so don’t wait up. This is gonna be a long two months.

the-dreaming-grass I love your genderbent fanart! It’s great that you’re doing TOS as well. And since you asked about the names, here are some of my thoughts (first names are a passion of mine, so I apologize in advance for the excessive wordiness):

There certainly are Vulcan female names that begin with S (like Saavik and Selar), so you could go either way with Spock. I’m partial to T’Pock though, since it fits nicely into what seems to be a common Vulcan female naming pattern: T’Pring, T’Pau, T’Pol…

Even though you didn’t really ask suggestions for Chekov, I’ll give them anyway since I’m such a big name nerd. Pavel doesn’t have a “direct” female equivalent in the Russian name system, so we’ll have to look for names that share the same linguistic roots. In that light Polina would be a good pick. (There is a Slavic name that resembles Pavel more closely, namely Pavla, but I’ve gathered it’s not used, or at leat not common, in Russia. I saw a comment once here at Tumblr made by a Russian girl, who said that Polina is a name she’d use for genderbent Chekov, since she has never met anyone named Pavla.) Also, Russian family names always take on a feminine ending when used by women, so that would be Polina Chekova, not Chekov. (But maybe you knew that already. This is a pet peeve of mine, since many people often overlook that fact. :)

I tried to be as succinct with my suggestions for Uhura as I could, but since it seems succinct and I don’t fit in the same room, I’ve hidden my ramblings under the cut.

It occurred to me that Lady Bones would totally have a mom haircut (i.e. not much different from the canon cut) and now I can’t imagine her any other way.
