Though just to type what I'm thinking of--it's like the story is a recipe, and there are all these ingredients from a tiny pinch of salt to cups and cups of flour. So it could be anything from shoulder rubs to mission scenarios, or another outbreak of office homophobia, or grocery shopping.
Basically I'm just copying poshcat, who recently asked people to describe the non-smutty kinks that they liked to read (or watch, etc). The ones I listed in response to her post, for example, were:
- Ensembles that work like a well-oiled machine, like in the movie Sneakers.
- Big, strong, *very* tough tough-guys (e.g., mercenaries) who are total gentlemen. E.g., who'll thrash wife-beaters to teach them to respect women. The kind of guy you'd assume to be a total homophobic redneck asshole who is actually completely tolerant of gays & all races.
