1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Heroes: Nathan/Peter!
Jul. 21st, 2011 03:38 pm (UTC)
1. What they do during sex: Argue and forgive. Mostly forgive. Their sexings are mostly one big, drawn-out, elaborate apology to each other for all their differences. For everything that drives them apart. So while they might strike a few sparks in the bedroom, mostly what they do is offer themselves up to one another, depending on who needs to apologize that day. They have a lot of power and trust issues, both of them, so they take turns bottoming and giving permission to push things just a little farther each time.

2. Who has prettier hair: Peter, unquestionably. Nathan's hair is lovely, coifed, and precise, but you could probably knock on it and it would echo, there's so much gel in there. But Peter has the long, soft dark bangs... yummy!

3. What they argue about most often: Responsibility. Either one of them is not taking enough of it, or taking too much of it. They argue about who should be responsible for what, when, and how. All the time. Then see question 1. :D

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died: It's a bit of a cheating question, as we saw what happened to Peter in the later half of S4. But I think Peter would, eventually, assuming he survived his self-destructive grieving process. If Peter died, Nathan might be able to hold himself together at first, but I think eventually would be influenced by those who would seek to take advantage of him, and then be draged under by all the demands on him.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them: Nathan stays a Senator, Peter moves closer to Washington, and they share a close, loving, clandestine affair with frequent trips to a seaside cottage for the rest of their lives.

Adam/Peter. :)
Jul. 21st, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
1. What they do during sex: Oh, they totally get jiggy with it. Or rather, Adam does. He shows Peter all the experience from 400+ years of life, so whenever Peter thinks he has the upper hand, Adam pulls out another trick. He likes to keep Peter off-balance and somewhat overwhelmed. And Peter doesn't quite realize all that Adam's doing, but since Adam is so very attentive to Peter's affections, he doesn't mind.

2. Who has prettier hair: Still Peter. The prettiness of Peter's hair can only be matched by a few on the Heroes cast. Or out of it, for that matter.

3. What they argue about most often: The Right Thing to Do. Adam has such a flexible view of morality compared to Peter that it sometimes disturbs Peter as to how callus Adam can be. Then Adam will pull out a convincing argument. He's very good at convincing arguments. But Peter can also be really damn stubborn.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died: Adam. He's been coping with the loss of loved ones for hundreds of years. And since Adam likes to foster Peter as being dependant on him, I think Peter would lose his pointy little mind if that support was gone.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them: Peter keeps his cellular regeneration, learns Adam's long view, while Adam learns some of Peter's compassion and innocense that he thought he lost long ago. Together they subtly help guide the world to be a better place while shagging like minks. :D

Hmm, interesting. Not one of my usual pairings, let me ponder for a moment...

1. What they most commonly do during sex: Explore. Both are men of many hidden talents and in Eliot's case, hidden secrets. Hardison spends a lot of time mapping out the scars on Eliot's body, and learns quickly which ways he can and cannot move him. He knows not to push too hard on the inside of Eliot's left knee or that it's ok to dig his hands into his right shoulder. Haridson learns Eliot's triggers like he would the weak points of a computer system and is careful to work around them. Eliot in turn is glad to be known and accepted fully by someone so patient and dedicated. Their lovemaking is slow but intense.

2. Who has prettier hair: Eliot. By a mile. No arguement.

3. What they argue about most often: Food. Eliot is horrified by the crap Hardison eats, and Hardison is mystified by how Eliot can take 15 separate things and turn them into edible things. "Why do you need 15 different knives and 25 different pots?" "Why do you need 6 different screens for the same game?"

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died: This is one of those occasions where I think they both have the strength to go on. Eliot is one tough mother, and Hardison has some built-in distance from the immediacy of most violence, which gives him a cushion. However, since Eliot's job is more dangerous, he'd be in much worse trouble if his attention slipped due to grief.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them: After Eliot finally gets out of being a hitter, they retreat to a combination gym/tech support center. Eliot teaches self-defense to victims of domestic abuse and Hardison helps the same with electronic trail-wiping so they can have new lives. They do this for decades and become beloved by hundreds.

As I was pondering them, they just rolled out all nice in my head, like a carpet unrolling. It was shocking easy to write them. And they would be so awesome in their happy ending, seriously. So glad you liked it! :)

(My other suggestion was going to be Sylar/Lucius but I can't recall whether you're a fan of Harry Potter at all.)
Jul. 21st, 2011 11:59 pm (UTC)
(I love the HP books, but I'm not really into the fandom so much.)

So! Sylar/Castle (for some really weird reason, here they are, together. I think it involved a case. Kate thinks Rick's new boyfriend is strange. She's threatened Sylar several times to warn him to treat Rick right. Sylar finds this kind of hot. Rick won't let them have a threesome because he's still working with Kate. Sylar was only a little disappointed at this.)

1. What they most commonly do during sex: Rick likes to make love like a rock star (energentic and acrobatic), and Sylar is not loathe to try to top their performances. They've considered adding lights, blowing curtains, a smoke machine, and a power chords going in the background. (But every now and then they have a slower night. More ballad than rock concert. They don't let anyone know about those.)

2. Who has prettier hair: Sylar. It's pretty, it's changeable, it's very dark and lovely. *pets*

3. What they argue about most often: Murder. Realistic murder. Specifically the motivations behind the murderer. Sylar has been adding some interesting details to some of Rick's recent characters, ones that make Rick raise an eyebrow every now and then.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died: Rick. He has the built-in support system with not only his family, but his friends in the publishing industry and police force, not to mention all his fans.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them: Sylar enters the writing world as a writer for an independant comic book that develops quite a following. Him and Rick collaborate on a few novels and graphic novels over the years, their fame now entertwined.


And what the hell, I'll give Sylar/Lucius a stab.

1. What they most commonly do during sex: Angst. Because, really, that's what this pairing is. Lots and lots of angst. There would be a hard, sharp rise to climax, just to get the self-loathing out of the way. Then a lot of breathing in silence. Then they'd start again, slower, challenging each other, but not pushing as hard as they could. Because both of them are pushed so hard by outside forces that them being together is a rebellion in its way.

2. Who has prettier hair: Ooo, hard question... Sylar's lovely changeable blackness, or Lucius' silver blonde locks? I'm a sucker for longer hair. Lucius!

3. What they argue about most often: Power. Whether you should be following someone else or making your own way. It's a hard road that both of them are following, and their differences are much of their attraction to each other. Arguements would be a form of foreplay.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died: Lucius. Having a support system is really important for suffering a loss, and Lucius has a really loyal family in his wife and son, even if they're kinda messed up. Sylar is very alone.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them: They find a small village in a corner of England somewhere between the muggle world and the wizard world, one where Lucius' involvement with the Death Eaters was unknown, and rent a cottage. Sylar masquerades as a wizard so he can keep using his abilities, and the two of them quietly and effeciently hunt down any risks to the Malfoy family (as Lucius can't go home again). Some wizards will go to them on the down low if they need aid against Dark magic, or just a really odd muggle problem.

This is utterly delicious.


They've considered adding lights, blowing curtains, a smoke machine, and a power chords going in the background.


You just know that Castle would annoy Sylar right to the point of getting killed, again, and again, and again, always drawing back at the perfect moment to save himself...

Ah, Sylar/Lucius. I suspect you are right, that they would be angsty as hell...
Jul. 22nd, 2011 12:28 am (UTC)
And on special occasions I expect they would hire a band to play in the living room. With a conductor to help match music to the action! :D Glad it made you giggle!
Jul. 22nd, 2011 01:00 am (UTC)
There's another question of great importance...

Sylar/Lucius: Who tops?

Hmm, good question. I'd say they'd switch, depending on the situation. Both of them like to forget, upon occasion. But I suspect Lucius would be more likely to bottom, at least at first. He had a nasty ego-blow there in the 6th and 7th book, and it'll be a while before he's going to demand a swap. But there will be one, and Sylar won't argue too hard.

i love this.

Matt/Mohinder! :D
Jul. 22nd, 2011 11:46 am (UTC)
1. What they most commonly do during sex: Gentle teasing. They both like lightening the mood and trying things that'll get the other to laugh (or gasp). Getting the other to abandon brooding for completing losing their shit in bed is the goal. Matt does it with anticipation (he can and will shamelessly use his ability to help Mohinder) and Mohinder will do it with understanding and some rather energetic acrobatics.

2. Who has prettier hair: Mohinder. Pretty curls! :)

3. What they argue about most often: Raising Molly. They don't argue in front of her, because they know that would upset her, but since both of them didn't have the greatest childhood, they want to make sure Molly turns out better. And they both have different ideas on how to make that happen.

4. Who'd cope best if the other one died: Matt, most likely. He'd be able to find people sincerely interested in helping him, while Mohinder might be more vulnerable to manipulation in his grief, and end up going down a rabbit hole.

5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them: They raise Molly together, while Matt gets work as a well-regarded private detective and Mohinder settles down to compare differences between the human and special genome. Matt helps many people get truth they might otherwise never be able to obtain, saving them lots of pain, while Mohinder's studies help many specials with only partial control of their abilities. He probably would have gotten a Nobel Peace Prize if he'd published it, but since he couldn't, he just shared the knowledge with other scientists he trusts (and Matt helps with the fact that they can, indeed, be trusted).
