children of dune - leto 1

There's STILL no reason to write Children of Dune fanfic.

Leto II and Ghanima have no bizarre vibes whatsoever, no matter how much cuddling, finishing sentences, hand-holding, strangely intimate touching, and long, significant, frankly creepy looks they exchange. *grins* Or how canonical that all is. Okay, that's funny. Dear God. River and Simon could take lessons.

I did not see Duncan staring longingly at the Preacher in the market, because he was obviously thinking holy Muad'Dib thoughts, not thinking "PAUL! YOU CAME BACK FOR ME!" but rather, how strange, a man in a cloak bearing a startling resemblance to someone I never, ever considered having sex with at any time, held tenderly after the death of his wife, and was willing to die for. No sirree, not on this desert planet, we did not stare at each other for an inordinate amount of time. Obviously, he didn't marry Alia in substitution for not having Paul.

Also, Duncan is not hot carrying weaponry, especially sharp objects when he is Very Very Angry. I want that stated for the record.

And Leto with that long, slim, delicious body, accent, and smile, is not hot. At all. Nor would I be at all inclined to wonder what kind of relationship he and Duncan have, since Duncan obviously doesn't have a thing for Atreides men. Didn't I already cover this? Stop arguing with me!

Alia is not engaged in quasi-incestuous--oh fuck. That's canon. She is totally engaged in some seriously screwed up mental quasi-incest with her grandfather, who, I want to add, is EWWWWWWWWWWW. However, grandfather does like guys more than girls, so I don't see Alia being at all interested in seducing Leto whatsoever, because, as stated above....

I can't even think how to categorize some of this. If there was, of course, anything TO categorize.

Anyway. So really, no reason. Does ANYONE see a reason?

The book wasn't nearly this much fun. Not that any of this is at all accurate, as I stated.

And dammit, I wanted full body stillsuits!

Yep. Nothing going on here. Move along now.

Snerk. This is all deeply canon, too...

*sighs dreamily*

Duncan is SO damn pretty. Dear God, that man is pretty. And carries weapons. Sharp ones.

*drools*

I'm SO glad someone agrees with me! It's a huge relief.

Yep, those Dune people need to expand their gene pool a trifle. *grins*

(Deleted comment)
End of Children of Dune, yep, Leto makes the announcement and breaks her betrothal. She nailed the Irulan's nephew to found the dynasty, though. *grins*

It scares me how much I'm actually remembering. I thought I'd forgotten a LOT more. I need to re-read to see how accurate it actually is and how much I'm imagining.

I didn't see any freaky Twin Sex. I didn't. Nope.

*pleased* See? I'm GLAD we all didn't see a DAMN thing with those two way-too-damn-touchy kids and their long-creepy-deep looks.

Not a BIT of twincest to be seen anywhere at all.

And by the way? Leto without his shirt, sweaty and smirking? Totally NOT hot. At all. In any way. Even when holding sharp objects. Or breathing. Or sitting. Or doing anything at all whatsoever.

*deep breath*

Just to clarify.

It's not like the cast is actually attractive in any way, shape or form. Running around with perfectly tousled hair, pretty mouths and all athletic and healthy looking. Bleh! Who's into that?

Intensely pretty people who carry weapons do NOTHING for me. NOTHING.

Really. Honestly. I swear.

You're totally right. It very much isn't desperately needed. And I know that I certainly wouldn't read and enjoy every single word of said unneeded fic.

*breathes* Nope. We don't need....any. Not any Duncan/Paul or Leto/Ghanima or....

*deep breath* Any.

But you know, because I'm curious, and only because in general, fandom MAKES me curious, I do think we need to, well, find some. Just to know it's there.

The pretty people

(Anonymous)
See, here's the problem: I read the books. I know how this all goes, I made up pretty pictures in my head and everything. BUT now they give me these pretty people who have taken over my mind and now there's twincest and slash and things I was willing to ::ahem:: 'overlook' because I was just reading into things too much.

Damn you, SciFi.

So, CoD fic? Definately.

Re: The pretty people

SciFi is losing points BIG TIME for all this--completely not-there subtext. Bah to them and their pretty cast and beautiful filming and the future Leto half-nudity. Which does, of course, nothing for me. What-so-ever.

Bah, I say!

Uh, well, I vote that there IS reason to write CoD fanfic (twincest-twincest-Leto-nekkid-Ghani-GUH!), and I cast said vote in your direction. *preys and stalks* I mean, I have pics in my LJ, will that help? (g)

You're trying to kill my denial, aren't you?

*going to look at pics* But only because I'm CURIOUS, dammit! ONLY for that reason.

Write it! Write it!!

*buries head in hands*

No no no no no! No matter how pretty they all are!

Oh damn.

And Leto with that long, slim, delicious body, accent, and smile...

Gah. You realize he's naked in Band of Brothers, right? Ep 10, I think.

is not hot.

Yep. And never for a second did the thought, "if my brother looked like that..." cross my mind. Not once.

Band of Brothers???

*whimper*

Naked?

*more whimpering*

You...you....

God, he is pretty. *breaking down*

I am laughing so hard right now. I'm taping the whole thing, hopefully to begin watching tomorrow, but even I've seen the Pretty while waiting to hit record.

I love things based on movie adaptations of books - you get the backstory and then you also get the pretty, pretty visuals! cf Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers.
