James Evan Wilson - House M.D.
Jun. 28th, 2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
Canon: His self-awareness. He knows and states out loud that he's enabling and co-dependent with House and yet he continues on. He can use it either snidely (Cursed) or sadly (Babies and Bathwater), but it's not a mystery to him that it's an unhealthy relationship, where as House, the genius, seems to try to hide it from himself. That's why we still get dialogue like "Wilson isn't a consolation prize," without House ever actually seeming to understand what that means.

Head-Canon: I stand by my belief that House and Wilson were having sex prior to the infarction and Stacy suspected. She put Wilson on the spot and basically dared him to admit to the affair as a way of stopping the surgery and Wilson wouldn't/couldn't do it and that when House said: When the decision really mattered, you didn't have the guts to tell them what to do!, it was a reference to that.

When It Really Mattered

You may. :)

Mycroft Holmes - Sherlock
Jun. 28th, 2012 10:54 pm (UTC)
Canon: His use of Anthea and by extension other beautiful women. Assuming he is gay (or at least gender-queer) I think it's interesting that he employs excessively beautiful and no doubt intensely competent female employees.

Head-Canon: He's a kinky bastard. Whatever kind of overly repressed home they came from, produced a Sherlock who is barely in touch with his sexuality at all and does everything possible to avoid dealing with it at all and a Mycroft who is so very uptight and buttoned up, but in private is a total freak who enjoys trysting with the Guards in Regent's park and might have been one of Irene's clients.

Bryce Larkin - Chuck :) or if that's too long ago - Tony Stark
Jun. 28th, 2012 11:57 pm (UTC)
Bryce Larkin
Canon: The geekiness. That in spite of being the good looking, physically adept guy, he was as into Star Trek and other kinds of Sci-fi as Chuck.

Fanon: That he was definitely sexually attracted to Chuck. Nothing ever happened, because although Bryce was already comfortable with his bisexuality, (it's one reason he was recruited) he figured that if he even raised the issue Chuck would go running a mile in the other direction.

Tony Stark
Canon: The self-hatred and self-destructiveness. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a womanizing bastard with Daddy issues, as long as he keeps himself out of Woobie territory which I think canon-Tony does. (Fanfic Tony, not so much.)

Fanon: Although his attraction to Steve and to Bruce is practically canon at this point in terms of the movie, or at least the way RDJr chooses to play it, I think the most likely Avenger to fall into Tony's bed is actually Thor. He actually has the fewest societal and personal taboos and issues to keep him out, and only gets about 40% of Tony's snark, so he doesn't know enough to stay away. Plus he clearly has a protective streak and Tony might remind him of Loki, without QUITE the meglomaniacal streak.

yay I got a twofer! <3 :) awww on Bryce and his bisexuality and why he did not say anything!!

And yes I find Tony and him being not a woobie awesome <3 for all his issues!

Canon-His relationship with McCoy. While the TOS trajectory with Kirk is a fairly straightforward friendship with heavy male bonding and whatever other subtext you want to read into it, the situation with McCoy is so much more complex and interesting. They are two planets revolving around Kirk and yet whenever they interact there's such a sense of friction between Spock's instinct to pure logic and McCoys to pure feeling, when in fact neither of them is as one-dimensional as they might seem or even wish to be.

Fanon-I've already told you my thoughts on how randy Sarek and Amanda really were. I also think that Spock wasn't the least bit sorry to see Edith Keeler bite the big one and it wasn't just to save the free world from Hitler. When he wanted Kirk to forget it was because he really wanted Kirk to forget loving someone else that much. Random space sluts don't matter, but Edith did and whether Spock understands why it bothered him so much, it did.

I'm totally with you on the Spock/McCoy being deeper than the straightforward dichotomy they claim it to be, if nothing else because, as we both know, being a doctor doesn't work with logic and reasoning. And Spock clearly has feeling, alhough pehaps not the language or the inclination to share them.

As for fanon, dark!Spock not being sorry to see her dead (and "helpfully" making Kirk forget) is absolutely delicious.

whether Spock understands why it bothered him so much
Tell me you or someone wrote a fic about this. Please.

Peter Burke :)

Jun. 29th, 2012 05:23 pm (UTC)

Canon: His competence. The fact that he's just plain good at his job through perseverance and the gut. That he doesn't need to be supernatural or lucky. Also that he surrounds himself with people who are also competent and respects them for that.

Fanon: During the years of tracking down Neal, he found himself obsessed with both Neal and Kate and was sexually attracted to Kate. (At least he'll only admit to himself the Kate part. It was really both of them. )

Competence (at Peter's level) is so attractive ♥
Why are so few people that competent in real life?!

Gwen Cooper - Torchwood
Jun. 29th, 2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
Canon-Her big clanking balls! People tend to overlook the nerve it had to take to walk into Torchwood with those pizzas, or to get up in Jack's face numerous time, or to go after the truth about Flat Holm. The girl may not be fearless, but she has the strength to over-come her fears and take action when others around her are cowering.

Fanon-Gwen is much more sexually adventuresome than Rhys. Some things she can talk him into and some not. Her ballsiness extends to her sexuality and she's already (pre-Rhys) been in threesomes and had affairs with women, as well as trying different positions, toys, role-playing etc. Jack senses this about her and it's one reason he's so attracted, especially after being with someone who thinks leaving the lights on during sex is avant garde.

My grandma used to say that some people have a tongue which cuts and sews, to mean that they could use very polite words and still be deeply insulting and obviously right ;).

How did she say it Italian? I'll bet it had a music all its own.

I couldn't resist.

No one can. ;D

Tobias C. Fornell
Jun. 29th, 2012 05:28 pm (UTC)
Canon-the friendship with Gibbs. He takes the full measure of the man and chooses to associate with him beyond what their professional relationship would require. I think the elevator conversation in The Boneyard really makes it clear. Both that he thinks Gibbs is an "insufferable bastard" and that he's the only friend Fornell has to turn to.

Fanon-When Fornell's marriage to Diane went tits up, it was Gibbs who was there to get him through it, whether that required getting drunk together, listening to Fornell vent, or something else.

Artie - Warehouse 13 (or Myka - or both :D)
Jun. 29th, 2012 05:34 pm (UTC)
Canon-His Judaism, even he's not practicing, his back-ground as a secular Jew is intrinsic to the back-story and there's a very semitic aspect to Artie's feelings about the world and the Warehouse. Also casting Judd Hirsch as his father, another actor who exudes Jewishness was brilliant. We know that Wilson on House is Jewish only because it was mentioned once. Otherwise, he rarely
alludes to it and is played by an excessively waspy looking actor.

Fanon-I ship Claudia/Artie, which I suspect may skeeve you out somewhat, so lets say at the very least, my fanon is that Claudia needs a father figure and she's got some heavy-duty abandonment issues that might lead to slightly inappropriate thoughts on her part and Artie's guilt could lead him to reciprocate equally inappropriately. I also think that the loss of Steve is going to exacerbate this.
Jun. 29th, 2012 08:18 pm (UTC)
I certainly don't shipt Claudia/Artie, but those two absolutely have their moments of shared awesomeness, so yeah, I totally see where you're coming from.
