grrrhmm.  
You know, sometimes I watch the promos for TV shows, filled with blatant mass-marketed het, and I think: No! No no no! I am not going to watch another new show until someone gives me canonical homosexuality, damn it! I want more than subtext! I want sexy vampires boffing dark-haired boys, and Air Force colonels with yearning yens for science geeks! Yens that are consummated! In secret, maybe! But still! Consummated!

Can I suggest the new Merchant of Venice?
Anna S.eliade on February 7th, 2005 04:47 am (UTC)
Is that a TV show or a movie? I haven't heard of it. :)

I do too. Although that's what QAF is for, right? I'm convinced that CSI is almost canon, though.

Really.

Anna S.eliade on February 7th, 2005 04:53 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm a big QAF fan. *g* I just want *another* QAF. So to speak.

And dancing boys. And a pony.

Yes! Me too! I think this is why I have no fandom at the moment, and wander, sadly lost, uninterested in watching anything new.
Anna S.: porny kangarooeliade on February 7th, 2005 05:52 pm (UTC)
There are good shows, like Battlestar Galactica. I just want more. More of a moreness.

There are times when it seems like characters have taken two huge steps back - into the closet. In the '70's Starsky and Hutch were feeling each other up weekly - so much so that even my mom picked up on it. Now, all the women fight like men and the men are only allowed subtext. Lots and lots of subtext but still, subtext. I have to agree with the comment about CSI. Maybe it's the Vegas setting but, for me, you can slash any two characters on that show and I'd believe it. I can't wait for the day when subtext is a thing of the past because Jack really does adore Daniel and they've waited long enough.

My husband is entirely uninvolved in fandom, but he knows about my slash reading/writing. When we first began watching Stargate: SG-1 together, he turned to me after the first few episodes -- during some Jack/Daniel scene or other -- and said, "Now, why would anyone write slash for this show? It slashes itself."

All I can say is yeah.

To really make me happy, it'd have to be two guys who identified as straight to start with, and then fell in love with each other...which makes it that much less likely to happen, 'cause the Powers are very, very afraid of fuzzy-boundary sexuality.

Hey, did you ever see the movie "Y Tu Mama Tambien"? Among other things, it was perfect slash.

Agreed! Very hot.

Nope. I've heard it recommended. Maybe I'll check it out. :>)

Willow and Tara doesn't count as canonical homosexuality?

I know, they're not guys . . . .
Anna S.eliade on February 7th, 2005 05:51 pm (UTC)
I was thinking only of new shows. :>)

FOR GOD'S SAKE COME TO ANIME FANDOM RITE AWAY
Anna S.eliade on February 7th, 2005 05:48 pm (UTC)
Mmm, yeah. I dunno. I like live men and I'm not sure I can jump the gap just yet. I've tried to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! a couple of times and I just don't get it--I can't watch for long. I can't appreciate the animation or the voices. It bugs me, actually.

I did see some anime vids a while back, though, and was very impressed.

Can you feel it through the bandages? The, ah, metaphorical bandages in this case. *g*

Amen to that. It's always really disenheartening when I see previews or a random episode of a show and realize that the beautiful tension between the lead character and some other interesting dude is just never going to pan out.

Though I do always fear the QAF syndrome, where I get pulled into the show for the hot boysex, despite the relative lack of interesting characters/arcs. (I mean, I love Brian, but even his arcs tend to get a bit flat.)

Really? I love the first three seasons, soap opera angst and all. *g* S4 was rather meh in that area, though.

I gotta agree with Boni, above: if it's canonical m/m you want, filled with pretty boy love and angst, you're going to find a treasure trove in anime and manga. Onscreen m/m kissage and pettage, baby.

Of course, there's a wide cultural gap to leap, but I think the payoff's there for you.
Anna S.: hepburn_kjveliade on February 7th, 2005 05:49 pm (UTC)
Not sure I can go there. feochadn wants to pimp to me, though. I should probably submit to this. *g*
