Sneak Preview  
Hi all! If you'd like a tiny little taste of the belt!fic, go here. And wish purplesyringes a happy birthday while you're there, because she's awesome.

:)

ETA:

Ah, I see that her journal is friendslocked. Well, okay, I'll post the sneak peak here, but should y'all see her around, tell her happy birthday anyway. :)


The sight that met my eyes when I opened the door to the flat is one that I shall not soon forget. Indeed, I shudder to think of it now. Mr Wooster was standing in the entryway, apparently having come to meet me as I entered the flat. He was dressed head to toe in what one might euphemistically term "Western wear," the style of apparel of the American cowboy, as imagined by a British tailor who had been to the cinema one too many times. I closed my eyes briefly, hoping that I had merely imagined the spectacle before me. I reopened my eyes; Mr Wooster’s appearance was unchanged. This could only have been a deliberate provocation on the part of my employer. I allowed my eyes to drift slowly down his person, taking in each of the hideous details of his costume. My gaze was arrested when I reached his midsection. Encircling that slender, elegant waist was the most grotesquely ostentatious belt I had ever seen.



Happy birthday, purplesyringes!

How strange... it's working on mine! Anyway, if you go to purplesyringes' lj, it's the most recent entry, about it being her birthday; I left a comment there with the sneak preview. I hope the link to her username works, anyway! Let me know if you find it... *is worried*

*clicks link*

*blinks*

It says I don't have permission to see the post. Including one big "FORBIDDEN" sign too.

Oooh, I'm so corrupting LJ servers say, "OMG IT'S LEAPER!!! SHE WANTS ON THIS SERVER! BATTLE STATIONS LIEKWOAH!"

I'm so weird.

Oh, I see, it's a friendslocked journal! That explains it. Well... you could ask to friend her so you can see it, or I could just post it here. *ponders*

...


Okay, I'll be nice and post it here too. :) *goes off to edit entry*

HAHAHAHAHA.

There's nothing that makes Jeeves cringe quicker than "Western wear". That was the most godawful outfit I've ever seen Hugh Laurie wear.

*unhappy shiver*

Re: *reads*
Oh, god, I know. It was awful. And that mustache. *shudder* I was right there with Jeeves - I just wanted to rip that thing off his face. And rip all his clothes off of him. *mind happily drifts off* Err, sorry. :)

I'm trying to decide whether I should bung in more description of the outfit, or just leave it to the reader's imagination. Thoughts?

That's a very promising sneak-peak, I must say. Jeeves is sure to figure out what Bertie's after, and then... :)

"Encircling that slender, elegant waist was the most grotesquely ostentatious belt I had ever seen." With this one harmless sentence, you made me conjur up a string of exciting possibilities in my mind. I can hardly wait to see the finished thing.
Skyskyblue_reverie on August 8th, 2006 10:42 pm (UTC)
Hee! Yup, Jeeves will figure it out pretty quickly, and then... *g*

Yay, glad you like that line. I have such a thing for Bertie's waist, so, of course, my Jeeves does too. :)

*g* Sorry loves. ^^;

Thank you again SOO much. *does the birfday dance*


I seriously have a thing for waists, especially Hugh Laurie's Bertie's. ~.^

Very welcome! *hugs* Happy 21st, dear!

That "Western wear" is one of the most awful things in that show. They just couldn't put him in simple jeans, like the other excitable local lads.

The description of his lissome waist starts to remind me of Jack Twist in Brokeback Mountain, showing off his belt-buckle. Of course Jeeves would object such a motion, and possibly yank it off him.

I'm so glad I caught this sneak peek.
Skyskyblue_reverie on August 9th, 2006 05:31 am (UTC)
Hee, thank you, glad you stopped by! Yeah, that western wear was truly awful. That fur coat! The mustache! *shudder* In my own mind, though, this particular outfit is more along the lines of Roy Rogers or something, all shiny satin and fringe, since it's western wear as interpreted by a British tailor via Hollywood movies. Haven't decided if I'm going to actually describe it, though, or just leave it to the reader's imagination. *g*

To my eternal shame, I have not seen/read Brokeback Mountain yet. I know, I'm a very bad slasher. *hangs head*

*taps foot in irritated manner*

Why, Mr. Wooster, I do believe you are indulging in what is commonly referred to as "topping from the bottom." If I were Jeeves, I wouldn't touch you for a full 48 hours.

But fortunately I'm *not* Jeeves. Jeeves is clearly much more of the lenient school of domination. If "lenient" is the word I'm after :)

Oooh, this is gonna be good! How long must we wait? *whimpers*
Sky: [stephen] V for Very Sexyskyblue_reverie on August 10th, 2006 04:28 am (UTC)
Hee! I think it would take more self-restraint than even Jeeves possesses to not touch a wanting!to!be!punished!Bertie for 48 hours! And, yeah, I'm not sure it's leniency... more like overpowering lust. *g*

And, let's see, I'm up to... *checks* 14 1/2 pages so far. The smutty stuff is pretty much done, and I'm just filling in some of the plotty bits. I'd say it should, barring unforeseen delays, and depending on beta turnaround, be posted in a week or so.

And - hey, where's those forceful, toppy Nine DW recs you promised me ages ago? *taps foot impatiently as well*

:)
