Psych (Lassiter Smiles)

That was a thoroughly excellent episode.

Gus and Shawn risked their lives to save each other!

Tim O looked blindingly hot the entire time. (Also, Lassiter is very fond of Guster, and thought Shawn did an adequate job.)

Henry was fabulous.

Jules was wonderful, though still not there enough.

Shawn totally had a crush on Tommy (which Tommy seemed to reciprocate, guys), and I have to admit, I was kinda sad he was a murderer. They had chemistry, and I had the potential to like him as much as I always liked Hornstock.

Roday was killing me with his expressions.

The level of continuity with past episodes was most brilliant, although the references were sign-posted a little too much.

... So, how long will it be before someone is writing a story using lavender scalp oil as lube? *g*

Not many people at all write Shawn/Gus, so... hopefully never?

(Oh man, I sure hope Shawn and Lassiter don't decide to bump uglies in Gus' apartment some time.)

I don't read Psych fic, the canon makes me very happy as is, so I had not idea of the relative popularity of Shawn/Gus. I just saw that bottle of oil and laughed.

Wouldn't it be gun oil with Lassiter?

Stop it!

Psych fandom is weirdly spread out. On LJ, it gives the illusion of being tiny, but it actually isn't. The proportion of Shawn/Lassiter to Shawn/Gus is like 90:10.

Hey you read Pros fic and gun oil comes up, what can I say?

I actually find that proportion strangely comforting as Shawn and Gus strike me more as brothers than anything.

I so do not see Shawn and Gus as brothers, obviously :D
15th-Aug-2010 12:55 pm (UTC)

Well, that's cool. :D I just don't see the sexual tension between any of the male characters on the show so I'm happy with canon.

HEY. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN this outtake? Because it maaaay change your mind, an eency weency bit (though not with Shawn/Gus. Just. Sexual tension.)

*innocent whistling*

Yep, I've seen the outtake before, I just instinctively read it as a case of "laditis" rather than as slash.

I either see dead people slash or I don't and it's pretty unpredictable. I'm a fan of a whole bunch of shows where I have mates happily slashing the characters and I can see why they do and yet I only have four fandoms where I actually slash any of the characters.

Lemme count my ones... I don't think I have many more than you (well, currently.) It's just that only one of them coincides. :D
15th-Aug-2010 01:39 pm (UTC)

It's like that with a bunch of my mates although I've been wearing some of them down. *g* I met Tog in the MFU fandom, lured her into the Pros fandom and now she's falling for LoM. Resistance is futile. :D Sherlock seems to have lured quite a few people in to reconsidering Holmes & Watson.

I like the resulting diversity on my flist -- hey I sometimes find something new to watch/love -- and I can usually follow along when they're squeeing as they often slash shows I just love anyway, like Psych. It's when they're very in to a show I just can't get in to at all like SPN that I'm a bit of a sad puppy. Still, they're enjoying it and the energy is nice to see.

This exchange tempts me so much.

How about MC Clap Your Handz? With accompanying clapping. I don't know whether I prefer it when Gus is all indignant or more than willing to go with the names he's given.
13th-Aug-2010 05:31 pm (UTC)

I sort of appreciate the evolution of his responses. I think at this point, he's sort of realized there's no reining in Shawn, so he might as well go with it. But yet, I'm sure he reserves the right to return to the indignant attitude in the future. You know, based on his mood, time, temperature, planetary alignment, spinal alignment...

Tommy and Shawn SO dug it each other. it was adorable, until Shawn's heart was broken by the whole murdering thing.
12th-Aug-2010 09:13 pm (UTC)
Even though it wouldn't have been as cool or dramatic, I was really hoping Hat Dude was the murderer so Shawn and Tommy could go on a date.
13th-Aug-2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
It would have been fedorable.

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week, tell your friends...
