eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (Default)
I've been rereading the first Lord Peter Wimsey novel, Whose Body. (I do a lot of rereading during the semester, because I can reread over several days and in five-minute increments without losing track of the plot. The number of times I have thus read Men at Arms and Gaudy Night does not bear thinking about.)

Anyway, in this reading, I came across a marvelous paragraph in the denouement. Lord Peter is visiting the man he now knows to be the killer, but he is pretending to be there for another reason, and the killer is pretending not to know he's in danger (while simultaneously trying to kill Our Hero). Lord Peter just reached out and prevented the villain from carrying out what was probably an attempt on Peter's life:
The silence was like a shock. The blue eyes did not waver; they burned down steadily upon the heavy weight lids below them. Then these slowly lifted; the grey eyes met the blue -- coldly, steadily -- and held them.

When lovers embrace, there seems no sound in the world but their own breathing. So the two men breathed face to face.
Isn't that awesome, guys? I love it kinda a lot.

Today, in random browsing of youtube, I discovered the following gem of accidental1 oh-so-wrong slash:





[personal profile] thingswithwings and I laughed and said "OH GOD" a lot. We particularly liked the moment at 1:07. And at 1:56. And, really, omg.

1 This is billed as "Bridger/ Lucas friendship." I do not think that means what they think it means.

I am not a LotR fan at all, let alone an LotRPS fan, but I figured some of you lot would probably like to see this.

So I present: David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortenson just about to kiss. At Cannes. Just before the showing of History of Violence. And according to QueerDay, it was rather more than a friendly peck. (The actual article is in French, but is mostly blahblah vague plot of film blah.)

[livejournal.com profile] friede: who, regardless of gender/orientation, does that in front of paparazzi?
[livejournal.com profile] friede: man.
[livejournal.com profile] eruthros: Um, David Cronenberg?
[livejournal.com profile] friede: OK. point.
[livejournal.com profile] eruthros: The first line there is "David Cronenberg loves to shock."
[livejournal.com profile] friede: hee. point. and Viggo ain't above it either.

ETA: another link with a different image at canada.com.
