This is my gift to the world. I’m leaving for India on Monday and this is my ‘sorry my blog is going to be really lame for two months’ parting gift. (Also, this is just as much for me as it is for you). I’ll do my best to update it every month or so. Enjoy, my friends! (That sounded so creepy in my head why do I do this to myself). Oh! Also! If any of the links aren’t working for you or you want to see something else added to this post in the future, let me know here.
Fic Recs: Those marked with * are favorites. Those marked with *** I will treasure forever.
Better Way for Me to Stay: Chris is far from a coward, but when it comes to talking to Zach about certain things he feels, naturally he’s a little apprehensive. It’s so much easier to talk with everybody else—until Zach finds out on his own, that is. (Words: 7400)
Blue Clear Sky: Look, Zach has rules. Especially about dating in this city of actors, and keeping an eye out for that handsome blue-eyed stranger that could (questionably) be stalking him. But what’s a guy to do when life certainly doesn’t give a damn, and turns the rules upside down? Cue casting shenanigans, drama, and - heaven forbid - growing feelings. Oh my. (Words: 25642)
Our Thing*: In which Chris is unduly tense and Zach is willing to help… (Words: 11095)
A Passage that Sings***: Footsteps beside him; the creak of bedsprings as Chris sits down by his head. Zach could bite his ass, if he could move. He wouldn’t, but he could. It would be tempting. “Front all you want: ‘Cathedral’ still skull-fucks you with its awesomeness,” says Chris, shoving the water up to his face. “Every time. Open your mouth.” (Words: 17080)
Pinto Experiences the Giggle Loop: Chris/Zach; they keep trying to make each other laugh during sex as a challenge/rivalry sort of thing, mostly through the use of awesomely cheesy porno dialogue such as ‘I’m going to put my hot dog in your bun,’ etc. (Words: 1105)
The Retiring of Joyce Dramis*: Zach’s an excellent poet… secretly. Only his mom and brother know he’s the author. As it turns out Zach is Chris’ favorite poet - Chris actually wrote a big final paper at Berkeley all about Zach’s poetry. (Words: 5348)
This is Just to Say***: My favourite part of the canonical bromance between Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto is that they’re both literary nerds. And that they confine their displays of masculinity to the MASTERY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. And you guys, I am such a hopeless and devoted English major, and I am just not strong enough to resist the lure of grown men who fly spaceships and use words like “moribund” and “zeitgeist” in interview situations. So this is a story of how boy wooed boy. (Words: 2392)
The Two of Us ‘Verse*: A love story told from then to now. (Words: 9013- just includes the first/main work)
Yellow Light: “Alright, Quinto, but don’t expect me to just hop into bed. I’m not going to put out until at least – at least – the third date. And you’re gonna have to earn it, too. I mean it. You’re gonna court me if you want this fine ass.” (Words: 18744)
Behold! Us Wayward Monsters***: When Cirque du Soleil presents an opportunity of a lifetime, Zach and Joey drive to Montréal to join their newest production. It’s meant to be just another job in Zach’s vagabond life, a stable gig that allows him and Joey to travel all over the world and explore their passions. But what is a guy to do when his brother goes off-script, getting involved with a veteran contortionist? And even worse, what is Zach supposed to do when he meets a blue-eyed stranger, someone who isn’t put off by Zach’s tough-guy exterior? Over the course of six months they become friends, and as Zach learns the life of the cirque, he also learns that maybe, just maybe, real life is way more complicated than any circus act.
