Proof that Mylar is more infectious than the Shanti virus

Detail of 'Yuuwaku' by Audrey Kawasaki

So I was explaining to my best friend, via text message because she doesn't have internet access, the things that were said by people connected with "Heroes" early last summer to the effect that the cockroaches seen around Sylar might turn out to be a physical manifestation of someone giving him help (an idea which I hope and pray fell by the wayside before they started filming season 2).  She then went on this monologuing rampage:

Her: They remind me of Madagascar hissing cockroaches, which just makes the idea of them giving him help even funnier to me.

     Hiss...Sylar, you are special.

     Hiss...I know you are in the sewer but you aren't a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

     Hiss...that giant rat isn't your friend!

     Hiss...Mohinder is your soulmate.  Don't kill him just hang him from the ceiling.  Hissssss

Me:  Oh my God.  What the hell???

Hee, don't you love how when friends and family pick up on the subtext? My brother saw the Mylar before I even did, which is why he laughed when he saw how the writers were entertaining the idea of a romance with him and Maya.

Oh, I know! I gave her a set of the DVDs and she saw it far more quickly than I did. She says things about them that even shock me sometimes...

What I find hilarious about this is that a ridiculous number of the Heroes slash fics I've read describe characters as letting out a "hiss" of pleasure, pain, and/or anger. I was going to write a rant about it entitled "Things that make you go SSSSSSS" except I reread one of mine and realized that I'd done it, too.

Now I can't shake the thought that everything Sylar knows about sex, the cockroaches taught him.

Cockroach: Hiss...Next, lovingly grip him with your mandibles...

Mohinder: Ow! Zane! What the hell are you doing?!

Just so you know, I read this and then laughed myself into a 90-second coughing fit. Then I texted it to my friend, who had a similar reaction. So a good time was had by all (except, possibly, by Mohinder).
