Knickers, I took the wrong darn pills. Nothing bad, but it could be interesting. Time for a joke, methinks:

Why are elephants big, grey and wrinkly?
Because if they were small, white and round, they'd be aspirin.

[I was a menace with a joke book at an early age, be glad that I've lost a goodly portion of my "repetiore"]

So, I took the wrong small, white and round pills. Or, more sensibly, took my beta-blockers four hours early.

The BRANE is having a field day, today, and has reached force 9 on the ouch scale.

The initial thing I actually wanted to mention is the Professionals and:
Pro #1: Whatever we are...
Pro #2: ...you made us
Pro #1/2: ...sir!
And I have a tough time remembering which Professional is which (as ever) but the "fight" in the bar back room with the deep-cover cop was wonderful. *waves around arms in fangirl fashion*. It was the one with the killer coffee. Any recs, out there, internet peoples?
  • And I have a tough time remembering which Professional is which

    Wait, wait, I know this... Doyle is the one who looks a bit like a toad in a curly wig and Bodie wears a lot of turtlnecks. I think.

    Ah, Pros fic. I read such a lot at one point and now I marvel over the disconnect between the physical descriptions of those characters and how I actually perceive them when I watch the series. Most pairings I can see why they are attractive to people even if not to me, but that one I'm just "them? really?'

    Anyway, that said, I remember finding these by Elessar quite fun.

    I don't remember much else about what was out there - mostly I remember recoiling in horror from fic after fic that seemed to think 'raped' was an acceptable synonym for 'fucked'. Pros was also the only fandom I've read where it has been so obvious that a lot of fic was written in a very different cultural climate - the times they have a'changed, thank god.
    • I think it was the dual evil grins from the boys (and they were playing with their guns) when confronted by Cowley.

      I don't think the one with the hair actually looked too bad, but the other one isn't going to win any beauty contests (except if playing Monopoly on stake-out). I'll hit the readable goodness tomorrow.

      (also, will keep eye on your ds_ficfinders entry because now you have got me curious).

      ETA: I can see me writing Pros fic... and the one with the hair held himself a little differently when it came to Cowley's briefing the following morning and found himself day dreaming his way through the rear guard action.

      ;-)

        Don't expect too much - I reread some last night and they aren't as good as I recalled :-(

        That is a mightily suggestive sentence!
        • Maybe I could win the Buwler-Lytton and the Bad Sex Awards in one fell swoop.

          (it would also help if I could spell it)
