My youngest sister just came in and stared at me for a moment.

"Are Sherlock Holmes and Watson supposed to be coded gay?"

I think I might have cried a little. Her email has enough links now to satisfy that burning question, I think. In detail.

Hee! I doubt I'll ever have that conversation with my sister, but I'm glad you've had the opportunity to explain slash to yours. Pulled back the curtain, indeed!

It was so random. I seriously stared at her for a few seconds. Child making that kind of statement would be superfluous most of the time, but her? Different. It was funny.

I felt warm and fuzzy.

Ahahaha that is deeply awesome.

Seriously. I kind of boggled in joy.

B'awww, they grow up so fast.

lol, I'd like to know the answer to this too! :)

How old is your sister??? Mine is only a 11 months younger than me so I told her EVERYTHING when I was 17 and first found slash.

The answer is "Yes, most definitely". Victorian England was a hotbed of aaallll sorts of sexual behaviors.

If you knew where to look, anyway. On the surface? "No, please. We are English."

What a good sister you are!

*laughs* I have a younger brother, he hasn't asked me any of those types of questions. I DID try to corrupt him with lots and lots of excellent scifi and such but no go. Not from lack of trying either. He's distressingly 'normal'.

*thumbs up* To your success with your sister though. XD I'll just have to settle for corrupting my two nieces when they reach their teens. *rubs hands together with glee*

You gave your sister Holmes/Watson meta links, but not us? C'mon, pretty-please?


awwww. do you want to intro her to Jeeves and Wooster next?

Or as I put it to a fellow fen : Holmes and Watson: Getting slashed because it was so bloody obvious before Jeeves and Wooster were a twinkle in Plum's eye.

Ooh, you have Holmes/Watson meta links?

I admit it, my heart melted hearing that....

Okay. I'm delurking because I hate being ignorant. What does "coded" mean? Also, I can't wait to see this movie. Looks interesting. *snicker*

So... what clued her in? Has she seen one too many ads for the upcoming movie?
