Spock - Fascinating by Araen Spock - Fascinating by Araen
Dr. McCoy:
- Please, Spock, do me a favor ... 'n' don't say it's 'fascinating'...
Spock:
- No... but it is... interesting.

Graphite pencil portrait of Spock (Leonard Nimoy) from Star Trek Original Series.

"He was just plain sexy, without even trying. Sex symbol, savant and occasional psychic: Spock is an icon for all times." - Hazelyn Patterson

Interesting thoughts about Spock by Henry Jenkins:
"It's a struggle we all face," says Henry Jenkins, humanities professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Are we driven by our emotion or by our intellect? And how do we reconcile those two things?"
One of the things Jenkins studies is Star Trek fan culture. He says Spock's struggle makes him an unlikely sex symbol.
"Spock is sexy for a large number of people, male and female," Jenkins says. "Many of the female fans I studied really are attracted to the emotional depths of this character." Like many men, Spock "represses outward signs of emotion," Jenkins says. He's a character "who tries to hold it all in, but who seems to be sensitive, sensuous at certain times."
And Spock's intense relationship with Captain Kirk only complicates his character.
"He seems to have a deep affection and even passionate relationship to Captain Kirk," Jenkins says. "This character, then, became the embodiment of the mystery of masculinity."

That's a truly FASCINATING portrait and logically, I have to fave it. :D
(Seriously, it's very well done and in my opinion you've not only captured Mr. Spock's attractive outside, but his spirit too. "Mystery of masculinity" - yeah, that's beautifully put!)
