The Trouble with Tribbles by tootsiemuppet The Trouble with Tribbles by tootsiemuppet
Drawn for a friend on livejournal. It was a prompt I gave her when I was bored and she had run out of fic ideas. She actually ran away with this one. HEH!

So yes, Stephen brings tribbles aboard the Surprise. XD I could so see this happening. Killick is the only one to be unaffected by the cute.

Not sure what to say but 1) AWESOME absurdity and 2) weirdly, this is one of the few Aubrey-Maturin fanart things I can favorite without having my sisters who share my account and know nothing of the fandom going "WTH?".
I think. :o (Eek) Wink/Razz

TRIBBLES! CUUUUTE!
Now that that's out of the way: This scene reminds me of Stephen's bees on the Lively.
I can imagine Stephen going all excited over them, actually I can imagine him saying the line about their reproduction rate and all.
And Jack buried in tribbles like in the episode.
I wonder if the midshipmen would see them as an additional food source or if they were too hypnotized by their cuteness.

I guess it would depend on whether there was actually much meat on a tribble or whether it's all fur. I could definitely see them being eaten, though.

It's just like the flock of quails that landed on the ship! You know everyone's going to try and eat the tribbles, right?

Aww, imagine tribble stew. D: Is there even any meat to them or are they essentially huge furballs?

You just know Jack would bring one aboard to please Stephen not knowing what they are and things would get out of hand in a matter of days.

And Killick is the only one unaffected by their adorableness.

OMG... I want some of those fluffy little things. I hope they are not man-eaters?

I like Trek, but haven't seen this episode. :D

It's a CLASSIC episode. It's lollarious. Season two, watch it. And then watch "I, Mudd", because those two back to back will leave you gasping for air. XD

Weirdly, a friend and I were discussing an apic battle between Kirk and Jack last night... and now I see this! :D Brilliant!

Haha, I seem to have good timing. XD Weirdly I can't decide whether Jack's more like Kirk or Picard. He starts out as Kirk but grows into Picard as he gets older, I think.
