An actual conversation I actually had tonight.

Mylar - from above
Watching The Perfect Storm, which none of us had seen before, at the climax when the ship capsizes and George Clooney and Marky Mark say their goodbyes:

Him: Daaaaaamn. I really thought they were gonna kiss. I'm kinda disappointed now.

Me: Oh my God. Hoyay is everywhere.

Him: Hoyay?

Me: It's an online term. It's a contraction of "homosexual subtext - yay!"

Him: Oh! You mean "bromance".

Me: Yech. I prefer hoyay. It's more adaptable. Because, like, on Doctor Who, when the Doctor and the Master are antagonistic yet staring intently at each other, it becomes "foeyay".

Him: OK, good point.

Me: Or, say, with Nathan and Peter Petrelli, it becomes "broyay".

Him: That's very true. But Mo and Sylar...I think it's pretty obvious that they want each other even more.  I mean, the way those two look at each other...daaaaamn.

His fiancee: *stares*

Me: Um. Yeah. Right.

I love it when RL people comment on the slash. This guy is fantastic.

I had a similar experience a few weeks ago. I have a friend who hates Sylar. She's scared absolutely shitless of him. She has recurring nightmares about him. She talks fervently about how much she wishes he'd be killed off already. You get the picture. We were in the car, going to a movie, and the subject of Star Trek came up, and then we started talking about ZQ. She said she wished she could be less afraid of Sylar, because she's afraid she won't enjoy the movie, and currently, she's terrified he's going to come stalk her. I noted that he's already too busy stalking Mohinder (I can't help myself!). And then she said:

"I swear to God, Sylar is in love with Mohinder."

I gaped. She continued:

"The way he looks at him, like this..." And here she imitated the puppy dog eyes Sylar gives Mohinder every so often (read: alla time).

She then went on about how Sylar hasn't killed Mohinder even though he's had repeated chances and even more reasons to, and how he spends so much time trying to get his attention, and how he keeps coming back to him... and then she returned to the topic of how much she wants Sylar to die.

When the Sylar haters see Mylar...

That...that is truly a priceless moment.

I've seen so many people say, "I thought the people talking about slash between them were crazy...until I saw them in 'Powerless'." I'd really like to know if, at any point during the filming of that, anyone fully realized how erotic it would look when Mohinder snapped that tourniquet.

It was priceless. I chimed in way too excitedly, of course, because OMG my Sylar-loathing friend sees Mylar. It... rather made my day, actually.

That's actually sort of my standpoint as well. I loved their canon dynamic, but I definitely did not ship them in a sexual sense until Powerless. The insane amounts of sexual tension in that episode convinced me otherwise. Something I've noticed in the past couple months, actually, is that I've run into people like my friend more than once; they hate Sylar and don't want to think of him as a sexual being at all, but they can see that there's something odd going on between him and Mohinder, or they can see why people would ship it. I do love it when non-shippers can see the ship! *is a fangirl*

I'd really like to know if, at any point during the filming of that, anyone fully realized how erotic it would look when Mohinder snapped that tourniquet.

Heh... I'm sure that at least some of the women on the set did. ^_^;

Whack his fiancee and marry this guy. :)
30th-Mar-2008 04:38 pm (UTC)
Well...he's actually a Peter fan. When she told me that, I said, "You have called off the wedding, right?"
30th-Mar-2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
...because friends don't let friends marry Peter fans. XD

*points above me*

Yeah, what she said...That is too awesome.

When the oblivious straight guys start noticing it and pointing it out, and in a "they're so definitely in love" way rather than a "EWWWWW YUCK" way, it's just great!

Bromance? I've never heard that term before! Haha.

So this was completely uninstigated Mylar commetnary? You haven't spoken of your interest in the pairing to this guy before? That is fantastic.

I really need to watch Ten and John Simms live and not just in moticators. This is getting ridiculous.

You know, Sylar gives puppy dog eyes, but Mohinder has a lustful look, too. It's more "you know you want to" smirking.

I actually am not into that ship, but I can totally see how people interpret it that way. (You should still see them live, though. I love watching John Simm perform.)

And you are so right about Mohinder's look!
