space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence
#even when jim’s exhausted and running on his third day without sleep #his mind is a minimum of three places at once #strategizes; orders; watches what’s happening #thinks what happens next #he forces his eyes to focus because he is captain and it’s important that it’s clear he’s sincere #and there’s something in his eyes that leaves no one to question his orders #(he draws the closest members of his crew in this way) #(he’s intensely hard to argue with - report to the bridge; report to medbay) #(his intensity brings them in and sends them away in equal measure) #(bones may have the steadiest hands and spock the steadiest logic) #(but kirk has the steadiest gaze) #(that makes him an intensely efficient captain) #but god is he tired #he is so fucking tired #that’s clear too. and he’s still driven. still effective. #he earns the respect of his crewand his enemies #and the overwhelming majority of the time #they do as he says #just because he can stare them the hell down #in any circumstance (tags via historianisms)

I suffer from aviophobia. It means fear of dying in something that flies!
