Another Thing: stingrays and my slash closet and bbd

Another Thing: stingrays and my slash closet and bbd

I sleep better cuddling Hugh. Before you get jealous, I mean Hugh the cuddly manta ray. I bought him in a retail frenzy following a visit to the London Aquarium with TA. He's called Hugh, because of bbd, who thinks Hugh Ray is the funniest name ever. Since he appears in the Amazing Story of Ray, Ray, and Renfield (one of my assorted underdeveloped character sketches. wouldn't a turnbull as a marine biologist AU be incredible. He'd be the dorky guy who really needs a buddy check every time he dives, but knows everything about the dolphins, an encyclopedia of dolphin knowledge. And Ray would be a local dive boat owner they've chartered. And Fraser would be a son of Costeau character. Awesome. Somebody write it, please? And they end up finding sunken treasure and adventure and romance! And pirates! Because Due South needs pirates.)

torakowalski encounter the Hugh-Ray "joke" about nine months ago when bbd decided to feed us. I was talking about the bfp and how Ray wakes up and bbd added "his boyfriend, Hugh" because Hugh-Ray. Sorry, tora, injokes are what you get with clones like my family.

More recently, I walked into the lounge (sitting room to americans and other creatures of the last days) and bbd was watching something about polar bears on national geographic. I mentioned how polar bear liver is poisonous and then had this need to fill dead air and mentioned Post COTW Quest Fiction and how Fraser and Ray went into the sunset to find the hand of franklin. bbd said they might just be gay. I said that theory is much discussed. Seriously, that's what I said.

So, I think bbd might know. I might be living in DADT here.

(not that the slash closet isn't comfortable or anything)

bluebrocade, I bet you're wishing I talked about this before MJ.

So given the chance that bbd will probably find it more amusing than anything else and write it off as weird (mostly); why do I try and keep my life and my life as a slasher/fan/delete as applicable (A phrase that makes me quote No Future by Paul Cornell, official, I am seriously uncool)? And not just from the parents, but from some of my meatspace friends? Well the parents equation I can answer quite easily: mummyfrog would just freak. She doesn't like my Vargas girl button badges because she thinks that people will see them and assume that I am a lesbian (horror!). For instance. Plus, bbd whispering to me that he thinks mummyfrog has got increasingly right wing, scary.

This is one of those posts with no real conclusion at all, sorry.
  • i have the feeling I'm firmly entrenched in the slash closet, but the door seems to be left wide open....so i understand your pondering.
    • maybe we can sneak out and haunt people and give them unwanted advice...
      • oooh, sounds like fun...but i don't think i give very good advice, and the majority of people I know just look at me weird, and sometimes a little scared when I try and convicne them that certain characters are most definetly madly in love with each other....I just can't understand it..lol
  • *giggles* Aw, your bbd was cute. *ponders* Though I think I maybe choked on sweet and sour chicken when he said it ;)

  • You! Are you the reason that my muse has an obsession with fish? I know I've got it from somewhere, I just don't know who the guilty party is... All I know is even if I'm writing fic that doesn't follow the universe (for want of a more suitable word - my brain has just gone "kersplat") that I normally play in, he still has to have his tank of angelfish, which includes a stripy one that he's named Spot (he thinks he's such a wit)....

    I mean, even in the RP I distract myself with, Vecchio has taken him to an aquarium for his birthday, you wanna see a 6ft3 man jumping up and down and clapping his hands like a happy schoolgirl? Climb inside my head...

    Oh, but yes! I would give anything to read Marine Biologist Turnbull.

    ... Damnit. I'd marry Marine Biologist Turnbull..... Mind you, I'd marry RCMP Turnbull, so, eh....

    Who'd be romancing who? Am I the biggest freak in fandom for wanting to read Turnbull/Vecchio?

    .... Oh, yay! to rambling comments ^_^




    • You! Are you the reason that my muse has an obsession with fish? I know I've got it from somewhere, I just don't know who the guilty party is...

      I had my suspicions on this subject.

      *watches muse!turnbull jump up and down and clap his hands*

      a) I'm not sure, I was thinking it would be K/T, but then what would Fraser do? So maybe F/K/T. Maybe it's a boat of marine love! Maybe this Vecchio moved to Florida and is copping there and can join in the fun and investigate the sunken treasure.

      b) no. I wrote K/V/T once.
      • Hmmmm... I think I shall blame you.... I shall tell Ray's RP mommy that its your fault her muse is currently having a breakdown because they're about to go diving with sharks...

        *watches muse!turnbull jump up and down and clap his hands*

        *sighs* Actually, I'm so sad you don't have to imagine it... Civvies!Turnbull. I don't know why he needed to wear his cowboy hat to an aquarium though... He's like a five year old sometimes...

        I have a very small issue with F/K/T. Very, very, very small issue, because Hyne knows its hot, but its so unfair that Fraser has to steal any of Turnbull's action, Fraser gets plenty loving of his own, Turnbull needs more that he can call his and only his.

        I wrote K/V/T once.

        *squints* Have I read this? I'm sure I must have done, but my memory sucks. On the plus side, it means I can enjoy fics (and books) over and over ^_^

        Sorry if this is all a bit random, I've eaten a disgusting amount of chocolate, if that's a good enough explaination.
    • *sighs* Actually, I'm so sad you don't have to imagine it... Civvies!Turnbull. I don't know why he needed to wear his cowboy hat to an aquarium though... He's like a five year old sometimes...

      An adorable five year old, and there aren't as many of them around as you might think. And they don't have Jane's (whatever the Jane's that deals with small arms is called) memorised.

      Fraser gets plenty loving of his own, Turnbull needs more that he can call his and only his.

      Yes, but this way Turnbull gets twice the loving.

      *squints* Have I read this?

      It was the Illinois Roadkill Cookbook. My beta, torakowalski's birthday present. *evil grin* Some claimed that Turnbull in leathers was kind of disturbing. Not the average fanon Turnbull.
      • they don't have Jane's (whatever the Jane's that deals with small arms is called) memorised.

        I have no idea what you just said. A woman's name, and then something about weaponry, or perhaps 5 year old Turnbull's upper limbs....

        Illinois Roadkill Cookbook

        Yes. I did read that, its not a title you easily forget ^_^ I'm starting to think that every disturbing strange thing about my Turnbull muse should be blamed on you... Not that its a bad thing in the slightest ^_~
        • Jane's. As in something like Jane's Fighting Ships. Basically, guide books to military weaponry etc. Kind of famous. I was assuming they had a handgun version (which they don't seem to, *sigh*) because of Turnbull in Asylum and his receiting of gun details and his "very nice" and his appreciative looks. I can imagine Renfield swoting up. Something most five year olds wouldn't do.

          Yes. I did read that, its not a title you easily forget ^_^ I'm starting to think that every disturbing strange thing about my Turnbull muse should be blamed on you...

          I'm fine with that. Though you might want to give heuryadis (spelling?) some of the blame too.
      • Ah. They do a magazine which reviews police equiptment. :-)
      • You obviously haven't met the 5 year olds in my neighbourhood ;P

        • Oh dear. You know what they say, give me a child until the age of six... miniature malfesants in the making? Poor things condemned to a life of crime. They need some intervention, perhaps joining the scouts will help.
    • Chocolate is a great explanation.

      Mine is I cooked my own greek food today. It was stefadho and now I'm stuffedfadoh.
    • p.s.

      I read the thread, your muse and the mysterious r_vecchio crack me up. *g*
