Arya & Gendry02

Wishful hoping from a Sheldon/Penny shipper?! Yeah, likely.

Rambling a bit about an interview with Bill Prady, co-creator of The Big Bang Theory. I wrote in this thread at Paradox, the sheldon_penny comm, that linked to a Variety interview:

"That was actually quite promising. Other than saying that Sheldon wouldn't take Penny as his date to the Nobel Prize, but his mom, he didn't rule out any Sheldon/Penny stuff. Didn't push any Penny/Leonard stuff. He even had the opportunity quite a few times and didn't. There were several questions that hinted at Sheldon and sexuality and Sheldon and Penny, and only one that referenced Penny and Leonard and it was negative. Plus, he flat-out said that they aren't locking themselves into anything with firm plans on the endgame.

Definitely positive overall!"

Thinking more on that, I absolutely stand by that. Not only that, maybe I'm a little cuckoo, but I kinda think that Bill Prady just *might* be on our side, or at least leaning there. Why? Collapse )

Unconventional Beauty ... hah!

So I was thinking about Jim Parsons and how over the course of the last month or so, the reaction to him has turned toward drooling, flailing, capslock-squeeing over his hotness, etc. Even the media has jumped in a bit, with one reporter calling him sexy, and TV Guide issue that interviewed him had this on their cover:

So, anyhoo, it got me to thinking about my recent fandoms and how all of the guys in them (that I find attractive) are not the stereotypical, conventional "hunks" that one usually hears drooled about in the media. The two things they have in common are: amazing talent and jaw-dropping charisma. Apparently for me, and those with who I share the fandom, that's enough to make one drool ... even if the guys aren't the cliched H'wood beauty. (Although, admittedly, some come closer than others).
