― But some part of him realized, even as he fought to break free from Lupin, that Sirius had never kept him waiting before… . Sirius had risked everything, always, to see Harry, to help him… . If Sirius was not reappearing out of that archway when Harry was yelling for him as though his life depended on it, the only possible explanation was that he could not come back… . That he really was …

more baby Amanda because baby Amanda is adorable.
So, some facts:
Her full name is S’chn T’gai Amanda Uhura
her favorite uncle is Uncle Jim, because he sneaks her candy under the table sometimes and tells the best stories
she refuses to call Dr. Mccoy “uncle”, for reasons unknown (much to his chagrin), but she does end up calling him “Dr. Bones” and he’s mostly okay with that because he thinks she’s the cutest thing since peach pie and would probably give up a limb for her, but don’t you dare tell Spock I said that, Jim.
She speaks Swahili with her Mama and Vulcan with her Baba and Standard with Uncle Jim and Doctor Bones, but Mr. Chekov is teaching her bits of Russian and Mr. Sulu is teaching her bits of Japanese so that’s pretty cool
She is a veritable fountain of quirky little facts and figures and will follow you around telling you them, like “were you aware that the Klingon Revolution of the stardate 1344.57 was instigated by Major General Khor Ta because of an insufficient distribution of Fillenese melons on the Klingon capital?” or “the consecutive sum of the numbers 233490945 through 495684564564 is …” or “if you stand upside-down and suddenly sneeze, your retinas may tear out of your occipital region”
She takes to following different members of the crew around to learn about their professions and one time she spends a whole afternoon in sick bay with Bones, sorting all the hypos with colour coded glitterly stickers
It’s actually supremely useful
Bones lets her help with little things like that around sick bay all the time from then on
the nurses adore her
Her favorite subject is mathematics
Her second favorite subject is history (of mathematics)
One time she challenged Uncle Jim to a chess game
he won, but she still had lots of fun
"Uncle Jim" she said afterwards, "you did not use a conventional approach to obtaining a checkmate against my king". "No," says Jim, amused. "I bluffed." Amanda purses her lips and stares at the chessboard. "I see." "Hey, kiddo," says Jim. "You’ll win next time." "No," disagrees Amanda. "You are at a higher skill level than I am due to years of experience." she pauses. "could you teach me how to bluff?"
Jim grins
Amanda frequently partakes in Jim and Nyota’s ultimate scrabble battles by sitting in her father’s lap and suggesting words.
She’s on Uncle Jim’s team, and Baba is on Mama’s team.
One time, they actually beat Mama and Baba
Uncle JIm gloated about it for weeks
It was kind of funny
Also her hair is always done up in cute little braids because her mother is a whiz with braiding hair
(whispers thanks to Psi for headcanoning with me xoxo)

OH GOD the amount of shenanigans with Uncle Jim, and the amount of glow in the dark stars on her ceiling, and the amount of Spock legitimately smiling at her, and the amount of Nyota putting her book down to watch from the couch as Spock and Amanda play on the floor KILLS ME WHILE ALSO BEING THE REASON FOR MY LIFE
