Spirk? What Spirk? What is this ‘sexual tension’ of which you speak? I don’t know what you’re talking about. *commence suspicious whistling*
I love how after all these years people still insist that Spock and Kirk are just friends. Guys, I have a best friend. She’s great and I care about her and we talk all the time. If she was injured and put in the hospital, of course I would go see her. Of course I would be happy she was okay. But I would not hold her hand and stare at her like she is the center of the entire freakin’ universe. And she would not tell me how her near-death experience gave her an epiphany about feelings, to be specific, her feelings for me. I would not listen with bated breath and she would not say that’s she’s realized that it’s okay for her to care for me, that she can deal with ‘this simple feeling’ she has for me. We would not do that. Do you know why? Because we are not in love. Because best friends do not act like that. And don’t try to pull the ‘well, they aren’t just friends, they’re BROTHERS!’ card because even the closest siblings do not act like that either. If you actually treat your sibling this way, I’d recommend seeing a therapist. ButwhateverIdigress ANYWHO! The point of this is that, when you see Chapel holding Spock’s hand or Troi holding Riker’s hand while they are injured/resting/whatever, you automatically assume that she loves him and that love may or may not be reciprocated, right? And (don’t deny it, you know it’s true) if either Spock or Kirk was a girl, this scene would also be read by all as a romantic scene. There just wouldn’t be any question about it. So why does the implication behind the scene change when they’re both guys? I’ll give you a hint:
