so I know everyone ended up hating Heroes apparently, but I started watching it out of summer boredom and the only reason I got past the first episode was that I'm kind of in love with Nathan Petrelli. for proper watching, I'm halfway through s2, but I skipped through and watched all the Nathan scenes through half of s3 early on and just.

I'm in love with the *character* - I'm not sure I like him as a human being but jfc, I've never seen a character on tv with his vulnerable side played so close to the vest. I mean yeah, his meltdown when he thinks Peter is dead is pretty obvious but other than that, he's Schrodinger's Sociopath and I just fucking love it. I change my mind from one minute to the next about what his motivations are and I just want to pick him apart and dissect his brain and understand wtf is going on in there.

I also kind of want to make him fuck Claire. I also kind of want to put him in the Owned!verse and have Harvey "give Mike away" to him and Mike to be all freaked out and excited that he's blowing a Senator. lol. it seems like he and Harvey should know each other, anyway.

I'm kind of bummed that I'm several years too late for the actual fandom - I'm indifferent to most of the show, but it would have been convenient to discover this Thing for Nathan when there were other people to flap at.

(ps, fic recs welcome)

Everything about Heroes said I should have loved it, but poor airing times made it so that my watching was sporadic at best. It seemed as though buying the DVDs was worthwhile (my husband with his more adult hours watched it somewhat regularly), but then I never got past season one. Go figure. Maybe I'll try again next summer?

Nice to see you, btw!

I watched Heroes when it first came out, but that was before I discovered fandom (in general) and I thought I was the only grown woman watching and didn't have anyone to squee with either, so I feel your pain.

Owned!Harvey giving Mike to a S1 Nathan-like Senator - a very yummy idea! It also could provide a chance to explore a morally ambiguous aspect of sharing Mike - the professional advantage it might give Harvey. I don't think Harvey would literally pimp out Mike, but if it made Mike happy AND gave Harvey access to someone who could help a future case, I don't see Harvey losing sleep over it. Not sure how Mike would feel when he realized it, though. If you're still looking for ways to add conflict to Owned, that might be something to think about.

As far as the rest of Heroes, well, I feel like telling you to stop watching now so you can keep that rosy feeling about the show. Once a show has its fandom hooks in me, I'll accept a lot of crap writing, inconsistencies and gaping plot holes (*cough*teen wolf*cough*) as long as the characters remain true. But to me, Heroes broke the cardinal rule of a TV show - they fucked with the basic characters. I'm even okay the occasional OOC moment, but not a 180 degree shift, which is how I saw Heroes go.

However, if you are JUST watching for Nathan, then you might still enjoy the final seasons. He was a complex character to start with, and he went through a lot of shit, so his character arc wasn't as jarring as some of the others. I'll be interested what you think in the end.

yeah actually I don't think this would be Harvey playing the situation for gain - certainly, it wouldn't hurt anything for him, but I think the angle with Nathan is basically, "you would both enjoy this and there's zero risk of scandal, so everyone walks away happy." your way would be kind of yummy too, I just don't think I need more conflict, haha. also, I'd probably write it as a far-future one-off.

and yeah, I'm really only interested in Nathan, and I'm pretty comfortable with it that way, so. *shrug*

Heroes S1 was genius on so many levels but after the first season, it was touch and go. I did love me some Petrelli's though. Mostly some Peter/Nathan.


I think I started a story once where Harvey was related to the Petrelli's and Nathan comes for a visit.


If you like Nathan Petrelli, check out some of Adrian Pasdar's earlier work. Profit was a short lived Fox show and whoo, if you think Nathan was a sociopath? He's got nothing on Profit ( I actually wrote a xover of the two shows).

Also there is a movie called 'Near Dark' which was my fave vampire movie for years with some awesome psychotic vamps plus poor innocent Adrian Pasdar.

The Heroes fandom was the first time I started shipping incest pairings, i.e. Nathan/Claire, Peter/Claire.

I did watch the entire show, but mostly did it for Zachary Quinto.

there is not nearly enough Nathan/Claire fic. I get why, but it's a damn shame in my opinion. I think that's where the Hot is at.

I actually dl'd it for Quinto, because I was bored and on a star trek rps binge but once I started watching it, I didn't give two shits about his character or any plotline other than Nathan's, haha. so. *shrug*

Harvey give Mike to Nathan??? Oh, please do. I mean, really, PLEASE do.

Anni, who has been reading/lurking/melting over your Suits fics at the archive, despite never having watched the show.

:) well hey thanks for delurking. I'm seriously considering that as a one-off in the verse - we'll see what happens!

What! You whore, you cheated on Har- ...oh, with his good buddy the senator? I see what you did there. >.o

I actually only watched one season of Heroes and then my hard drive tanked and I never got around to catching some more. I kinda really liked it, although Sylar's epic creepiness (and the brains! the brains! I don't want to see brains!) put me off Zachary Quinto pretty much forever (no goddamned Spock slash!!).

Now that you reminded me though, it's going back up on my list. I barely remember who's who, but if we're talking senator it must be Jaw-and-Chin Guy. Ooh, I liked him. And his little brother is, well, his little brother. Right?
Also about time I dl'd some more Suits and caught up! Donna is still fired where I'm at!

Fandomwise, I am still in my ongoing love affair with Generation Kill and folks therein, but I have a scorching hot new fling with Derek and his torso in Teen Wolf. It only bothers me that the slash authors of today are such feeble puppies. I remember back in the day when we could all agree that the only thing hotter than two hot men was two hot men beating the crap out of each other... *waxing nostalgic*

Hey, I kinda miss you, even though you're here! Maybe because I am here so little nowadays.

lmfao - jaw and chin guy. accurate.

now would be a great time to catch up on the rest of s2, because s3 starts in just over a week.

teen wolf fandom is pretty weak for me - way too much fluff and not nearly enough dirtybadwrong of any flavor. Derek and his torso are kinda worth sticking around for though, and I adore Dylan O'Brien. I just end up being continually frustrated by the lack of pervy filthy shit, haha.

and yeah I mean, I havne't been on lj as much as I mean to be lately either, so I've been kind of here but not here. it's good to see you though *squish*
