researchgrrrl - who if you haven't friended, I seriously do not get it, this is one of fandom's best and brightest, people - metas on A Differnt Kind of Dirty: Gen Porn.
One of my biggest kinks is The Tease, both when the characters are utterly clueless about the fact that what they're doing could be remotely considered hot and when they're perfectly aware that if anyone else happened by, they'd be totally accused of subtextual stuff. Love it. Seriously.
SPN fen, back me here. Dean would be totally "...for serious? You think me sharpening this knife is hot? No shit? Well, huh. AWESOME." And then he'd probably be all about us playing Spin the Bottle, except it would actually be Spin the Knife and if getting to make out with a Winchester when the blade of a knife points at you doesn't turn you on, YOU ARE DEAD TO ME AND NOT IN A FUN HUNT-YOU-DOWN-AND-SOAK-YOU-IN-HOLY-WATER SORT OF WAY.
And, Housegrrrls, you know what I'm talkin' about when I say the fact that House is equally loose with the sexually suggestive remarks about Chase and Wilson as he is about Cameron and Cuddy when he's got his snark on is every bit as hot as how deliberately nasty he is with inflating giant phallic pink balloons and talkin' smack about how Wilson will find out exactly where House will put his cane if Wilson takes him to dinner that night.
Why we love what we see, why it gives us chills, why Sheppard doing nothing but hanging from the ceiling holding his P-90 while clinging to the rafters gives me good feelings for *weeks*. Or to me, the ultimate example of gen porn in SGA....
Movie Night, where we get Sheppard sleeping platonicaly between his two teammates and I literally flail. FLAIL.
Go read, comment, *discuss*. This has crystalized why gen in SGA with a strong Rodney and Sheppard friendship presence does almost as much for me as the slash. I mean, above and beyond my enslavement to plot. Right there.
Yes, I'm home sick today. I'd say my life sucks, but I have blankets and my laptop. Bliss.
