I turned my mom into a slasher!  
I am so stoked! Yesterday my mom was in town for a business conference, so after she was done with her meeting she came by and visited with me for a few hours at my place. It’s always great to see her. We ate sushi and gabbed about Hugh Laurie (we are both swooningly in love with him), I showed her a couple of J & W episodes (she's never seen it before), and we talked about House. She told me that she now agrees with me that the couple with the most chemistry on House is H/W!! I nearly died. This came out of the blue, because she’s always been really resistant to the idea. I told her I’d make a slasher of her yet, and she said, “I think you already did.” She also said that she thinks HL is probably bisexual. My mom is teh awesom.

She also immediately saw the red-hot chemistry between HL & SF on Jeeves & Wooster and agreed that J & W are such a married couple. From her comments about Jeeves, I can tell that she finds him as attractive as I do. Kinda strange to find out that I have such similar taste in men to my mom (although I guess it makes sense; we’re a lot alike in many ways).

Anyway, this made my slashy little heart so happy. I love discussing everything with my mom; we can natter for hours about the tiniest little details of our lives. But she has never gotten obsessively into a TV show until House, and she has never gotten the slash thing at all, so it’s really exciting to be able to discuss this stuff with her as well.

In short: YAY!
How do I feel?: ecstaticecstatic

Hee, way fun. My mom thinks H/W is totally weird but both my parents have always completely accepted J/W without any effort on my part. It's funny when even your dad makes "Bertie's gay" jokes while you're watching.

Yes, I think the Fry and Laurieness is too overpowering to be denied. :) I doubt I could even get my dad to watch J & W, however. Not his cup of tea. *g*

And not just that it's Fry and Laurie, but the characters themselves -- you've read the books, of course -- I know, I know Wodehouse was asexual and everything, but taking the author out of the picture for the moment, come on...there's no way in heck those two are straight. Bertie might not know it, but...:D

Oh, yes, you're completely right. F & L bring out the slashiness so well, but yes, it's totally present in the source material. *le sigh* I love J & W.

By the by, old bean, my Bertie POV piece is coming along rather more quickly than I anticipated, and I might have something ready within a day or so. Would you be up for another spot of beta'ing, by any chance?

Thank you, darling! And, hee, "old bouillon cube." I'll send you an email... probably sometime today, actually. :)

Heh. Yeah, there's a significant amount of chemistry there. You know, I think Wilson (or, rather the actor, whose name escapes me) bares a resemblance to James Marsters. Especially around the cheekbones. That's probably why he appeals to me.

A couple of our pals were over last night to watch SciFi with us, and they have DVDs, and have persuaded us to watch more House with them, and fill in where we've missed episodes. I'm still a little taken aback by the "here-and-now" setting of a modern hospital, where there are no aliens or vampires, or strange goings-on. But I'll try to persevere. For Hugh's sake :)

Cheerio, m'dear!

Wilson = Robert Sean Leonard

Yes, RSL and JM definitely both have that cheekbones-that-can-cut-glass thing going on, which is damn attractive. Normally I don't go for the pretty guys, but those cheekbones... well, I'll make an exception for that kind of bone structure.

And, yes, definitely stick with House despite the modern setting. It's totally worth it. For Hugh's sake, and for the astounding House/Wilson chemistry. Hell, it's worth watching even just for Hugh's eyes - I swear the House lighting people are trying to kill us all with the way they play up his eyes.
