I had to google it, but I totally agree about that. Also the Wikipedia article made me laugh: "Scott's steps are not strictly ballroom."

Random italicisation, why so hilarious?

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT! You need to get on that, stat. It is like the best film ever bar none.

Except, if I were to write the AU, I don't know who Fran would be...

Okay I will go watch it! the synopsis is pretty killing already.

STEPHANE. there isn't nearly enough johnny/stephane for my liking.

It's so funny, and so Australian. (Something I didn't realise till I wasn't there, lol.)

Hmm, bad confession: I don't really feel that pairing. Maybe because I am ALL ABOUT THE HATESEX, but too often they're written as friends with benefits and that's actually a concept I abhor.

Hm, true. I do enjoy a good Johnny-Stephane friendship though! See: accidental marriage fic *______________*

Oh, I'm all behind the friendship. Stephane in that story is beyond awesome. &him;

Ok... I googled too, but I still don't get what that picture is from. Maybe it's because "Pop Star on Ice" made me cry and so I haven't watched the rest of BGJW, though.

I got it from someone else's picspam. I think it is the perfect encapsulation of their ~relationship: Evan distracted, looking away, Johnny totally focused and nearly smiling. D'aww!

I can't get to the end of that. I just hurt for him. D:

Oh, ok, i was just wondering what they were doing hugging and smiling like that, especially Johnny, who seems to be trying to repress the smile instead of force it like I would expect when last time I saw them together Johnny looked like he could barely stop himself from killing Evan, you know? (by "last time" i don't mean any chronologically connected, it was probably the prense conference they had after he lost to Evan that time they tied)

I like the subterfuge plot where they have always been lovers (it's so unbelievable it somehow works) but hate!sex turned something more (at this point in fandom just sex is kinda boring). I kind of want a story where they use sex as a means to further their victory outside the rink like Harry and Draco did in "Seeker to Seeker", it would even fit with Galina's schedule for Johnny's sex life since it would only be *after* competitions.

I'm going to try and keep watching BGJW because, yes, it hurt, but it was also chockingly hilarious.

*hopes for recs* :) thanks for picture!

I fully believe Evan is tickling him out of shot. Of course, I also fully believe Evan is secretly not an awkward robot *loves on his stupid face*

And YES yes yes, Strictly Ballroom. Write it, someone *_*

LOL YES! That would explain Johnny's expression of barely suppressed mirth! Love it.

BAGS NOT ME. :P

I try so hard to buy into Johnny/Stephane, because they are SO pretty (and they actually like each other, and I love them both so much, and, and), but I just really want secret!boyfriends Johnny/Evan. Screw reality :P

*looks around* volunteers?
