Good Omens: Well, ok , I’m possibly the last person in any fandom to have picked this up and read it. I believe I tried it a year or so ago, but never finished it – I don’t know why, I know I got it from the library, so perhaps it ran out of time or something. I remember enjoying the beginning very much so I don’t know why I hadn’t read further. I’ve passed the point I was at before now, and am still enjoying it.
Am loving the affection between Crowley and Aziraphale, (of course) even though canonically it says that Aziraphale is NOT “gayer than a treeful of monkeys on nitrous acid” and that Gaiman and Pratchett assert that they are “just good friends.” That was a terrible dissapointment for an over eager slasher, I can tell you.
Loving Adam, a lot. I would have hoped, if I’d had a son, he’d be a lot like Adam.
Anyway, nothing much else to report. I am working on a story(which is due end of the month – argh!) about a gay couple who visit the Lion of Chaeronea . It’s set just as the Civil Partnership Act was going through Parliament, and one is hopeful of it being made law and one isn’t. They look at the Lion and find it galling that homosexuality was seemingly more accepted in 338 BC than it is in 2005. I’m planning to do a segue to the past, perhaps a touching night between two of the soldiers on the night before the battle and then back to our heroes.
That’s if I can get bloody started. *smites brain and fingers for not co-operating*
Oh and this icon is ACTUALLY supposed to be Aziraphale and Crowley, but I nicked it and wrote Jon and Mike on it, coz it seemed to suit my characters really well.© Copyright 2006 Erastes, All rights Reserved. Written For: Erastes
