Your Heroes crack for January 7th (with a little Supernatural thrown in)

Mohinder mmmm
Today over lunch, the Sylar thread at TWoP continued to be too IQ-deadening to read, so I decided to start catching up on the Hoyay thread. And I discovered something I haven't seen or heard of before. About 3 weeks ago, ibroketuesday posted a link to a Very Special Post in weaselistic's LJ.

You remember how Sylar apparently stole Mohinder's corduroy jacket and wore it to visit his mother? Well, Sam Winchester has appropriated even more of Mo's wardrobe. I cannot believe I missed all of this when I saw the episode, especially since (as is pointed out by weaselistic) that fugly shirt seems to cause violence and threats. I must have been too distracted by things like the fingernail-removal-by-pliers and "We're just here to watch". But...how did Sam manage to get ahold of Mohinder's clothing?

Now, if I recall correctly, back in "Bad Luck at Black Rock", Dean was trying to track down Bella to get back the rabbit's foot that had cursed Sam, and Bella lived in QUEENS. QUEENS, people. So perhaps Sylar had stolen more things from Mohinder's closet than we realized, but after his disastrous visit to his mother's apartment, he ditched everything but the Hot Black Coat of Serial Killing in a dumpster. And Dean passed by the dumpster and rummaged in it (why, I don't know, maybe he thought he saw an unopened bag of chips in there, Lord knows Dean can't go an hour without stuffing his cheeks full of some kind of messy foodstuff) and found Mohinder's shirts, and thought they would make good rags for polishing Metallicar or checking her oil. But then later Sam was tidying up the backseat, and thought that Dean was trying to metrosexual up his wardrobe, and tried on the shirts himself and liked them.

Crack. It's what's for lunch.

(Also? Yes, I have just outed myself as someone who now watches Supernatural...and enjoys it. Shut up.)

'the Sylar thread at TWoP continued to be too IQ-deadening to read'
Haha, that pretty much sums up most Heroes-related discussion outside of people's personal LJ. It's the same reason why I could never join the comm for Heros_sylar or whatever it's called, the only people who post are the tweens and whatever shit they are on, I don't want any. I'm almost developing a hatred for those who like Sylar because Zachary is hot that even rivals my hate for those worship Bennett/hate Mohinder and those who want Sylar dead because they are bitter Peter/Mohinder shippers, Saya shippers, or the people who think only the good people should live on a TV show.
And for something much less bitter, I too enjoy Supernatural, even though I can't stand the new brunette they have as a love interest for Dean.

In TWoP's defense, the disappearance of quality discussion really is anomalous; usually the caliber of discussion with regard to Heroes is very high. I guess it's the hiatus screwing with everyone... or not; I have no idea. Maybe it's hard to discuss a show when it went out on such a flat note.

I think I mentioned that somewhere else as well; a lot of fans that usually contributed interesting discussions have left fandom. I hope it's not permanent.

...I watch Supernatural. I LOLed. XD (That reminds me, I still need to watch 3x08. Will keep an eye out for more of Mohinder's wardrobe.)

Now I'm imagining the wardrobe sharing going both ways. Sam's purple unicorn whippet shirt, maybe? Mohinder might be able to work it.

I never really cared for either of the Brothers Winchester. It was Metallicar that sucked me in. And then when that air conditioner burst into flames as Sam just sat there protesting that he didn't do anything...I completely lost it. That was when I really really started liking the show. Unfortunately, I was on the phone with my mother during a certain scene in 3x08 that made me scream out loud, and then I had to explain the horrible thing I'd just seen, and that yes, that horrible thing really did occur during the Christmas episode.

Mohinder would make an excellent occasional guest star on SPN. After all, with everything he's seen, he might insist that superpowered villains were behind everything rather than demons, but at least he would be able to believe these things had occurred. And it would be great if Mohinder and Sammy kept switching off shirts, leaving Dean to stand there going, "Wait a minute...didn't you...oh, never mind." Though I would hate it if they encountered Sylar, and Dean ended up getting shot with his own rock salt.

I just realized I never noticed Sam's clothing before. I am going to watch out for Mohinder's wardrobe on Supernatural from now on,lol.

And the shows aren't even on the same network! It makes me wonder if the CW is on such a tight budget that their costume designers have to go dumpster-diving over at NBC...

This gives me lulz every time I even think about. I fully approve of your crack-theory, especially since it means that to get that fugly striped shirt, Sylar would have has to return to Mohinder's apartment at some point. I guess the jacket wasn't enough?

Of course, Sylar probably looks for excuses to stop by Mohinder's apartment...

Oy. I gotta say, the Sylar thread has been totally derailed by the Daddy Sylar Pls discussion. What happened to the hyperanalytical Sylar thread of yore? Can it come back soon please?
