Linguistic Ambiguities in Vulcan Ethical Codes - by elumish (inspired by lazulisong's "Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit")
He doesn’t want to take Vulcan.

He’s technically on sort-of academic probation, though—they think that he managed to hack his educational history, which one is offensive and two should be taken as a sign of his skills and not the lack thereof—so he shows up to the first Vulcan moderately awake and ready to BS his way through with the minimal amount of effort.

Which would be a hell of a lot easier if he didn’t recognize his fucking professor.

He actually freezes for a second, halfway into the room, until another cadet pushes him the rest of the way; for a heartbeat he doesn’t know where the fuck he is, what year it is, and he thinks he’s going to drown on his own breath.

But he’s gone this long without losing it, so he gets his shit together and heads to the last empty seat in the back row.

“Today will be the only day I speak to you in Standard,” Professor Setal says once the room is more-or-less full of cadets, most of whom look like they would rather be anywhere else. “Every day you will be assigned listening in Simplified Vulcan, for which translations will be provided on your PADD in both Vulcan and Standard characters. You will be expected to be familiar with all works from the listenings by the end of each week.”

Someone near Kirk makes a horrified noise, and Kirk has to swallow down a laugh at her look of trepidation.

Vuhlkansu - by elumish
Pid-kom T’Pau switches to Vuhlkansu, saying, “Though your choice to leave Vulcan following your graduation from the Vulcan Science Academy was illogical, it served as the catalyst for your survival. The decision will thus no longer be viewed as a loss. Your service honors us.”

Jim swallows down the urge to gape at her, because that’s frankly the nicest thing a Vulcan has ever said to him, and it’s T’Pau , instead saying, “Shaya tonat. Tushah nash-veh k’odu, pid-kom.”

“No thanks are needed for the truth, khart-lan. Tushah nash-veh k’du.” She looks back at Bones, saying in Standard, “I will meditate now.”

Bones blinks at her before turning on Jim to glare at him and demand, “What on Earth was that? Since when do you speak Vulcan?”

“It is illogical for you not to have informed your colleagues of your abilities,” T’Pau says reproachfully, and Jim sags a little, which hurts like a knife through his side. He should probably actually get his ribs dealt with sometime soon.

For the moment, though, he just says, “Restricting dissemination of my history ensured a meeting with my classmates on a more even ground, leading to greater bonds that will aid me in a leadership role in the future.”

T’Pau looks at him for a second, then says, “Your logic is sound.”

“What the actual fuck?” Bones breathes, then mutters, “Ma’am,” at T’Pau.

“I’ll tell you later,” Jim says. “Any chance you can fix my ribs now?”

Bones swears at him through the whole procedure.

Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations - by elumish (sequel to "Linguistic Ambiguities in Vulcan Ethical Codes")
He gets access to the medical records, or at least some of them; Jim apologizes, saying he forgot they wouldn’t transfer when he got “back Earthside”, and two days later his medical records include information from remarkably regular and frequent check-ups from ages fourteen through seventeen.

The weirdest part—other than the fact that Jim didn’t seem to exist between twelve and fourteen—is that the attending doctor is always a Vulcan. The same Vulcan, in fact, a T’Kel.

Jim just shrugs when asked about her, saying, “She was the doctor on the ship who had the most experience with human physiology,” and changes the subject when asked what ship.

And the thing is that Leonard desperately wants to know, especially because some of the details in this show recovery from a level of malnutrition that is virtually never seen in Federation space anymore, and he wants to know how Jim went from being a healthy-enough—if possibly abused—child in Iowa to a teenager recovering from malnutrition on a ship where a Vulcan doctor is the one with the most experience with human physiology.

None of it makes any sense, and Leonard hates it.

Sometimes it’s like a blur of something out of the corner of my eye, and when I turn to face it it’s gone. Like earlier today, when I sat I the command chair and knew I’d sat there before and of course I did, but I mean before and that wasn’t me, that was him because I look down and I see a blue uniform shirt and Commander stripes, and that was just one of the countless times that Jim ignored regulations and beamed down to the planet sur -

I blink, and when I turn around it’s gone. I glance at Spock, because I can’t help glancing at Spock every time this happens, just to make sure we’re different people. And he’s watching me. Again. The first times, he withdrew when our eyes met, feigning some renewed interest on his consoles. Not anymore. He returns my gaze. He knows. Somehow.

Other days it’s a sort of waking dream somewhere between sleep and consciousness. I fall out of my body. I see another self through another’s eyes. I become that other Jim through the vestiges of many mind melds between them. Between us. And then my soul slams back into my body and I wake with a start, not of panic, only almost of surprise at feeling like myself again.

RIGHT. Well, fine anons and non-anons, I was browsing Youtube when I saw this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kuWo02QPHI&feature=popular) mighty fine gem. AND IS THAT OR IS THAT NO BABY JIM?

So my prompt for you is: give me Winona showing the crew embarrassing Baby Jim holovids. You can incorporate the baby dancing or not, I don't care. Just give me those amazingly awesome Baby Jim videos. Did he drop trou in the middle of a Church service? Sure thing! Stomp around and growl at two like a dinosaur? You bet! Smack his own booty when he knew he was doing things wrong? Absolutely!
