1. Doing the dishes along to Mika is not that good an idea, due to constantly stopping to dance around. (Bonnie, this is totally your fault. Possibly yours a little as well, Ko. I'm not supposed to like Mika.)

2. That run of co-stars in the Grey's double-parter? Oh good god. I had no idea. Although David Anders was so sadly underexploited, I surprisingly liked Merrin Dungey. Since when does that happen? And Piz and Taye and and and. I have no clue where I knew the other three doctors from seeing as IMDb and are failing me on this one. Woe!

3. Go check out David Walters' music. Impressive. Even more so in live.

4. Puresex and Bean are one of the slashiest things ever in Sharpe's Sword. Oh, god. In which Puresex is called Captain Jack Spears. Could it have been more phallic than that? I'm not sure. (Thank you thank you thank you Vae.)

5. I've plugged The Tudors to my Shakespeare teacher (who, as a Shakespeare scholar, didn't know who JRM was, but knew Jeremy Northam - she's seen him in Love's Labour's Lost I am so envious again). Yes, I'm shameless. But oh, my god, have you seen what they did last episode? It still makes me heee.

6. "And you and me just never, um... you know." "Yeah. Well I'm glad we do." Cue in significant look. Oh my GOD could they be any more slashable if you tried, Kripke? (However I'm still very annoyed we didn't get to see JDM John.)

7. Knowing that Robbie and Santiago Cabrera (Isaac in Heroes, Paolo in Love and other disasters) play football together puts wonderful slashy images in my head. Possibly because I can't help but slash Robbie with anything pretty that breathes within three feet of his. Apart from Dean Lennox Kelly, but that's just because Dean has got to be slashed with Jonathan Wilkes.

8. I want to see PotC3 already. I also want to stop hoping we get Sego elected. There is no link between those two statements other than the near-certainty to be direly disappointed. I'd rather PotC were crap and we got Sego, though.

9. I need to go clean the flat now. At least Mika will be good to hoover along to.

Hee! You finally watched Sharpe! So glad you found time. And yes. Yes yes yes. You know, I've never once gone looking for Sharpe slash? There must be TONS of it.

And those pics I sent you of JN, the pretty, softly lit ones? THAT was LLL.

also, dude, Scott and motorbikes? The boy is incoherent at the possiblities of double-entendre. And leather

Well, I'd already watched Paul a while back, but today I just had to watch Puresex at last. If there isn't tons of Sharpe slash I officially do not understand fangirls. Because, seriously.

Yeah, I know! I remembered, when she said so, and went sort of "ahgkfdalgaldfgfl" inside. But kept it in so she didn't think I was insane.

...wait what? There are motorbikes? Mhmmmmmm. I can see why the incoherence, although I'm still surprised, and don't expect it to last very long before he gets started on the double entendres. And the leather.

You realise that now I have to go searching for Sharpe slash? If it's as bad as most Torchwood fanfic I'm so blaming you and oh my GODS I adore your icon. Ahem. Sorry.

Lass, you are insane. That's why I like you so much *g*

There are motorbikes. New interview, apparently JB likes cars, Scott likes motorbikes. I was also surprised but that doesn't stop the internal comments about powerful machines in between thighs and leather. I mean. Leather.

Someone may be trying to get me to mention the word throbbing as well, but I'm not going there.

*dies laughing* Oh good god and I'm insane? We're insane. The point is that it's better if my teacher doesn't find out. :p

Scott is absolutely unphased by anything John might have to say on the subject. I do believe he's heard it all before. I'm however going slightly dreamy at the idea of Scott and motorbikes. He so has one in London.

The slash probably is as bad as TW, let's face it, and you can't blame me for it. It's a wonderful icon courtesy of [ profile] queenspanky. As is this one.

Probably absolutely better if your teacher doesn't find out.

There is hardly any Sharpe slash, except one mostly defunct community called [ profile] chosen_men, of course, and it's nearly all Sharpe/Harper. Why is there no Sharpe/Jack? It's WRONG.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Scott's heard it all before several times over, but that's so not going to stop JB. It's an entirely different level of appreciation.

*is possibly hypnotised by those two icons*

From: [identity profile]
It is wrong. Seriously. If I had the time, I would so remedy to that myself. They were begging for it! Their dialogue was so loaded. And just. I don't understand Sharpe fangirls.

Scott would like to point out he's quite familiar with that particular level of appreciation coming from John.

*uses the last icon of hers she has*

I think the issue is that Sharpe aired mostly before the advent of internet communities, and therefore fanfiction is limited. You would, of course, be the perfect person to remedy such a lack, were it not for the million other demands on your time.

John's raising an eyebrow and pointing out that vanilla caramel meringues are nothing compared to Scott in leather, and the entire country had a chance to discover the sounds he makes over those this morning.

*wants those boots*

Date: 2007-05-05 04:35 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
So we need to be looking for Sharpe fanzines? Ha. And if it were not for those million demands oh how I would enjoy it. Puresex and Bean? Yesplease.

Scott rather agrees that vanilla caramel meringues are nothing compared to him, whether in leather or not. Or compared to the noises they trigger in John.

*has run out of sexy icons!* *turns to shower icons!*

I kind of want to watch Sharpe's Sword again now. Btw, do let me know if you want to see any others - can always rip, split, and upload for your perfectly legal evaluation purposes.

And also? Those noises will be available on [ profile] barrowmanfans tonight *g*

JB's rather interested in what kind of noises Scott thinks he's going to manage to get from him once he's home tonight, considering how exhausted he is.

*is reduced to using more Sean icons*

Date: 2007-05-05 04:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Ha! I don't know, are there others that are worth watching? Don't take me wrong, I love Bean, and I love Bean in a costume, but I'm not sure I would have watched if not for Paul and Puresex. As it is, I only watch them with one eye. It's all a bit too... *makes vague hand gesture in the direction of Sharpe*

Oh, I need to remember and check it out later.

Scott would like to remind John of the kind of noises he makes when massaged. Other sorts of noises can wait until tomorrow morning if absolutely needed.

*Daniel Craig is love*

It's a little formulaic, certainly. Dying in accents. Hmm. Depends on the actors you like, since there are many guest stars each week. *mind blanks on exactly who* Oh. Liz Hurley? Someone was telling me they liked Liz Hurley. I suspect that it wasn't you.

JB is now offering puppy dog eyes. And pointing out that such a delay is hardly ever absolutely needed.

From: [identity profile]
The number of Sean icons you have is rather impressive.

And no, it wasn't me. And even though Pete Postlethwaite also seems to be in this one, even the two of them combined aren't enough to make me watch it, quite honestly. I'd much rather rewatch Paul or Puresex.

As if he needed to use the puppy dog eyes. Please. Once Scott gets his hands on him...

Date: 2007-05-05 05:16 pm (UTC)
vae: (sean perfect vision)
From: [personal profile] vae
And this is the edited down list of Sean icons.

Yes, Pete Postlethwaite as a sadistic lunatic was absolutely delicious, evidently having the time of his life. You know Brian Cox did some too, right?

I'm told that he may not need to but he's still going to, and suddenly getting impatient for the end of work tonight.

Date: 2007-05-05 05:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
See, even when I did have over 100 icons, I was all about variety. *looks at list of icons* Weirdly enough, I didn't have that many of Paul before my extra userpic add-on ran out. I'm so odd. Aaaanyway.

Ooooh! Now we're talking. You know how to speak to a girl. (On the Brian Cox bit, not the sadistic lunatic bit. Although in other circumstances, sadistic lunatic would have been the way to talk me into something, too.)

Only suddenly? Scott is rather unimpressed all of a sudden.

Date: 2007-05-05 05:28 pm (UTC)
vae: (sean mouth)
From: [personal profile] vae
The prettiness of Sean is the first that I iconed, though. So many resources, and so hard to make an icon that doesn't look delicious.

Trouble is, Brian Cox did several as a kind of small part rather than one as a main, but he does have fun, for certain.

I should probably have said suddenly getting more impatient. And now determined to find some way of impressing Scott.

I still can't recognise that mouth as his. I keep thinking David Anders instead. Even though when I actually look at it closely it's so not his. Ah, whatever, me.

Brian! Why must you vex me so. Hmpf. And obviously neither one he's in has anybody else I'm terribly interested in. Never mind, then, darling, but thank you for offering.

Scott likes that sort of thinking a whole deal more.

vae: (sean laughter)
From: [personal profile] vae
I can absolutely definitely guarantee that it's his mouth. I can even supply the original image if you like *g*

No problem. If you ever do want them, let me know. Did you still want that McKellen/Dench Macbeth, btw?

There is smirking going on.

After some time spent reading the comments (granted, I read the post long before), I realized I knew what Sharpe was.
And that I knew some Sharpe fans back in 1998-2000.

Except I can't remember if they were into slash or not.... Wanna me to try to find them back and see if they have any fics for you? ;-)

Ha! Well, were they good writers? I only ever like my slash extremely well written. I'm a slash snob, yes. :D

They had to slash Sharpe. It's impossible not to, I swear, around Puresex's character.

Bonnie has gotten me completely hooked on Mika as well, and Phil is not helping the addiction because he burned me the CD, and it's ALL THAT ADDICTIVE, not just the one song. *facepalm* Uh, except this one song about erasing a message off the answering machine, that's just weird.

Regarding Sharpes Slash: There is, in fact, a bounty of it on the web, but the truly hilarious stuff is the Sharpe/Horatio Hornblower/MaC crossover stuff. Comedy gold.

Date: 2007-05-05 04:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Nobody even had to burn me anything, I downloaded it earlier today 'cause like, his stuff on Radioblog was addictive in a bouncy-making way, and I've been listening to little else but that ever since. Good thing I'm alone or Joey would've bashed me over the head with something blunt for playing that on a loop (and I could well understand her). And the really weird thing is, not only do his bouncy songs make me bounce like you wouldn't believe (esp. Lollipop) but his sadder stuff? Also really strikes a chord. Any other world? Yeah.

See, I don't want to touch those with a ten foot pole.

From: [identity profile]
Isn't it sick how many times you can listen to the CD in a row? I had to take it out of my car because I was worried about burning out on the music too soon. His sad stuff IS really touching - Any other world, but it called Happy Ending? The last track? Though the line 'lonely is so lonely alone' always makes me snort-laugh.

I cannot for the life of me remember how I found it - it was the most complicated orgy of all time, trying to follow who was who, I remember that.

For some reason I want to hug your icon. I blame Tray.

lol, yes, that wasn't his most inspired line ever. But yes, it's called that, and they're both... But I don't know, it's really Any other world that reached in, grabbed my guts and twisted.

I bet it was. I have yet to see Hornblower, actually, so. Despite its plethora of actors I want to see more of.

Date: 2007-05-05 05:08 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Here, have another. *g* Though I'm sure he wouldn't mind hugs...

The spoken-word bits that surround Any Other World are what reached in and twisted up my guts. aaaagh. OW. And thank goodness he has a large-ladies song to match Freddie Mercury's "Fat Bottomed Girls," because I swear to god he is Freddie reincarnated.

I haven't seen any Hornblower myself, though after Amazing Grace I might have to get into it. Damn.

I... sort of want to do other stuff to this one.

I know, right, it's wonderful. Is the kid actually gay, then? Bi? That "Billy Brown" song made me go hmmm. I know nothing about him. Apart from how he's hot and Groves is so ready to pay for that and insane. In a good way, as far as I can figure out. (Not quite Queen, though, as far as music goes.)

Amazing Grace?

Lollipop! How can you not dance along to that, honestly?

Apparently it's none of our business, and I quote: "In response to media speculation he has been quoted as saying, "I never talk about anything to do with my sexuality. I just don't think I need to. People ask me all the time. But I just don't see the point." The quote continues, "In order to survive I've kind of shut up different parts of my life, and that's one of them, especially this early in my career." He has brushed aside suggestions that he is steering clear of sexual taboos in order to appeal to the American market, pointing to the song "Billy Brown", which is about a man who has a homosexual affair. He is quoted as saying, "If I was worried about sexual taboos I certainly wouldn't have made the record I made. It has nothing to do with that. It has more to do with self-respect."

From Wiki, natch.

Amazing Grace, oh god, it's so amazing. It came out earlier this year or late last year, the main guy from Horatio plays the guy who started the abolitionist slave movement in England, and (only slightly) about how the song was composed. It's the kind of movie I wish I'd never seen so I could see it again and be just as awed.

My gods, threesome crossover slash? that sounds painfully complicated.

From: [identity profile]
What, that LJ only has the crappest of crap sometimes? Except like 75% of authors now don't bother to archive their stuff, so sometimes you'll miss a goldmine if you don't search LJ.

It was insane - I think there was some PotC involved as well, because I seem to remember confusion over Jack Aubrey and Jack Someone Else, and I don't think there are Jacks in Horatio or Sharpe. It's a very pretty mental image, but horrid execution, really.

No, I mean that my automatic start is an LJ interests search and checking the comms *g* so I miss a lot.

Oh, I totally do that too! Though more and more I don't even go fic hunting... bad me. *sadface* I'm sure I'll get more into it this summer. And start writing as well, knock on wood.

Harkness and Sparrow together would be HILARIOUS. Oh my god. I hosted a Defabricathon a few years ago, and it never got better than Jack meeting River. ...actually, in retrospect, considering what Jack and Simon get up to, you might enjoy that one. ;D

I do tend to let fic come to me, rather than the other way around. But. Yes. So hard to find decent fic. *eyes TW fandom dubiously*

Harkness and Sparrow together are impossible to write. There were drinking games. And attempts to tell each other the most outrageous stories. And comparisons of all sorts of things...they're just uncontrollable. And then the other Jacks JB's portrayed started to try and get in on the act, and I ran away screaming and deleted the file in self-defence from the ultimate crackiness.

Oooh. Jack meeting River. And Jack and Simon. *clicks* *ignores ironing*

Puresex is Jack in Sharpe. There's this wonderful moment where Sharpe first meets him and calls him "Sir. Captain." And Puresex is all "Please call me Jack" with one of those smiles of his, you know? And then Sharpe calls him Captain Jack. I swear.

Oh, Emma, I love you. I miss you! I read today that the biopic shoot is scheduled to last 25 days but I don't have a start date. He'd better be able to make it to NYC. May 17, is that it? For some reason I'm stuck on that date. ...which is IDAHO day, so that might be why. Is it also the upfronts? Anyway.

We might want to suggest the nudity and more lube to Kripke. I'm sure they're just not doing that because it hasn't crossed his mind that things could be improved.

Burning through my soul. Ooooer a play. I wonder how he deals with that. It's quite different from working in front of a camera. Isn't that the Sorkin play that was put up with Rob Lowe and John Barrowman in London? Because the idea of Jensen playing Sorkin makes me weak in the knees. And god I know there was so much squeeing and possibly actual flailing over here. And poking of Joey going "oh my god did you see did you see." I was thirteen all over again.

I think it's the same play, yes. It's an interesting hiatus choice for him - and I expect he's bricking himself over it.

They're just so adorable together if completely backwards emotionally. I love them. He was never going to leave without saying something, hence the thread at all, but Jared gave him such an awesome lead in and it worked so well and yes, yes, there was definitely flailing and a large amount of grinning on this end.

You mean the gaying up of Thomas Tallis? I loved that, obviously. Hee. Of all the characters to make gay, they pick the church music composer.

Oh my GOD could they be any more slashable if you tried, Kripke?
I'm pretty it's actually gotten impossible at this point.
