Little Vulcan things
Vulcans body temperature is actually cooler than that of humans (about 91 F)
Vulcans do not eat with their hands. They consider this to be unsophisticated.
If Vulcans are guests in someone’s home, they normally prepare a meal as thanks.
Vulcan blood is green.
Vulcan hearing is better than that of humans.
Vulcans have an inner eyelid (guessed to be because of extra protection against the harsh sun of Vulcan)
Vulcans evolved from feline-apes
#I wonder if that little flinch Spock makes in the second panel#is because Amanda’s hand came into contact with his skin#and he had to FEEL how proud she was of him and how much she loves him#and at this point in his life he still wasn’t prepared for that level of affection from anyone#so he took her wrist by the sleeve and removed her hand from his neck#but then felt her sorrow #and took her hand.#Someone needs to parallel his face here with the face he makes during the glass scene in STID.#Zachary is a subtle actor. #His facial expressions are deliberate and wonderful.

“When they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And the didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that’s an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the doctor.”— Steven Moffat (x)
Iron Man (2008): Deleted Scenes
Tony Comes Home
can you imagine though, jarvis all alone in tony’s malibu house? jarvis who of course doesn’t have any physical form at all, jarvis who at this point occupies just the house and tony’s phone—jarvis, who is dependent on tony for everything, who lives essentially in tony’s pocket, suddenly being completely alone for the first time in his silicon life.
and every ten minutes on the dot for days and days and days he accesses the latest news reports, re-calculating and re-calculating tony’s chances at survival, endlessly running the numbers. and nobody told him to do that. tony’s house was empty and dark and nobody told jarvis to keep an eye on the news but he did. jarvis could have just spun down his hard drives and gone into hibernate mode, but he didn’t.
no, he watched the news. he stood vigil. he waited and he hoped that his calculations were wrong. that one day he would be able to say welcome home, sir once more.
“I have been, and always shall be, your friend. Live long and prosper.”
