star trek au where everything is the same except kirk and spock are constantly eyefucking on the bridge and covertly (not really) flirting with each other and telling each other that they’re soulmates in every other way besides actually saying it outright
wait a minute
“Do you think it’s a good idea to permit drinking at the age of 18?” Zoe asked dubiously. Her eyes were fixed on Anton who were talking excitedly with the bartender, probably explaining how to prepare the drinks he wouldn’t stop babbling about. Anton wasn’t invited to the Paris press conference but they run into him in the hotel. Chris claimed he came all the way from USA just to have a drink with them in public. No one questioned this idea.
“He drinks with us all the time,” Karl snorted from over his beer. Zoe shook her head.
“Somehow the fact it’s illegal makes it less disturbing,” she announced rather illogically and sipped her wine, still eyeing Anton suspiciously. “Now I understand why Anton is not an official part of European promotion tour.”
“Hey, Zach!” Chris yelled, waving his hands around until Zach noticed them and pushed through the crowd, carefully avoiding any eye contact. Just before they got in a small group of fans attacked him and he stayed behind for an impromptu meeting. Now, broadcasting an aura of exhaustion, he flopped down on chair and gave everyone a short glance. “How come they didn’t try to catch any of you?”
Chris leaned to Zach with grin, his eyes shiny. “Zoe is too terrifying, Karl too experienced with fans and I got booed,” he explained in theatrical whisper and downed half of his glass in one gulp.
“For the last time you did not get booed!” Zachary groaned, took Chris’s glass and tasted what was left of wine in it. “And cultural people don’t drink wine like this. Can anyone explain me what Anton is doing behind the bar counter?”
“Aside from making Zoe go insane?” Chris leaned closer and took his glass from Zach’s hand, their fingers brushing. “Presumably he helps making some crazy Russian drinks that will either kill you or kill you. I told him I want two.”
