Show and Tell: Holiday Edition [Dec. 3rd, 2010|07:51 am]

Does anyone want to play Show and Tell?


How about sharing your favorite QAF Christmas/holiday decorations - icons, fics, vids (are there any QAF Christmas vids out there?)

OK, I'll start.

One of my favorite things about the holidays is getting to use [info]url_girl's Christmas icons, created from one of the best Christmas Stories ever!

Another is rereading [info]xie_xie_xie's "Plans" - Brian, Justin, Christmas at Britin surrounded by family and friends - what better way to welcome the holiday season?

Ok, your turn. Come Show and Tell some of your holiday favorites!

Show-and-Tell: QAF Dreams [Nov. 5th, 2010|07:35 am]

You tell me your dream, and I'll tell you mine...

Have you ever dreamed about QAF?

Did you used to back in the days of your earliest obsession? Do you any more?

QAF has found its way into my dreams a few times, mostly just quick sightings of one or more characters (I've spotted Brian and Justin a couple of times in a dream-crowd), but nothing really coherent.

But one did stick with me. It was just a few weeks after I'd started watching QAF, and was probably still obsessing over the end of the show.

Show and Tell: Brian & Ted's FriendshipThrough the Seasons [Oct. 22nd, 2010|02:41 pm]


The Brian & Ted dynamic is something I always wish we'd gotten to see more frequently, especially in seasons 4 & 5.

The Brian & Teddy Show? )

Show and Tell: At Woody's [Oct. 15th, 2010|05:39 pm]

Woody's is the backdrop for a lot of great QAF scenes.

It's where the gang goes to unwind after work - shoot some pool, endure some karaoke, take in the occasional Big Basket contest, and just hang out.

When I think of Woody's, the first image that comes to mind is Debbie in 102, yoo-hooing across the tables to a mortified Michael. Then, enter Stalker!Justin, with Daphne! (Everyone seemed to be wearing something shiny that night lol!)

Some of my favorite Woody's scenes take place around the end of the Stockwell arc. The "sacrifice everything" kiss in 313, then the celebration when the election results come in - we can practically feel the relief in that big B/J hug (points to icon). Then the "not everything" moment on the steps, as the celebration moves outside.

Screencaps are from Showtime

There are so many things happening in and around Woody's through the seasons: there's Gay as Blazes, Follow Your Dreams, a different and obscure fundraiser practically every week, and so much more.

Come play Show and Tell and share some of your favorite Woody's moments.

Help us keep The Love alive :)

Show and Tell: Let's Talk About Tricks [Oct. 8th, 2010|11:19 am]

[Current Mood | sick]

We are first introduced to Brian Kinney as he drags a willing trick to the backroom at Babylon.

Up until then, I had always thought a trick was a cruel joke you played on non-friends, but I

quickly learned that "tricking" in the world of Queer as Folk was a whole 'nother animal.

Show and Tell: Celebrating Excellence in the Workplace [Sep. 24th, 2010|03:02 pm]

I love it when QAF takes us into the workplace.

Partly because Brian in Armani is such a beautiful thing. But also because I really like watching people who are exceptionally good at their work.

Which the folk in QAF are, for the most part.

One example: Brian's coup in 217. The new boss dares to require Brian to prove his awesomeness - so he does. With inspiration, able assistance (Cynthia and the photographer, for starters), a little luck (Brown's assistant is gay - and unable to resist Brian's ... charm), and unbeatable talent and persistence, Brian snags the "ungettable" Brown Athletics account and keeps his job.

(Screencap from Reminiscent Designs)

More than that, he makes partner. And that makes me feel happy and proud. (And wish that Justin had been at the loft to hear him call out the good news ... but that's a Show-and-Tell for another day.)

That's my Workplace Show-and-Tell moment. How about sharing one or more of your favorites - maybe in the diner. Or Torso. Or Jerk at Work. Or Kinnetik. Or the Bloom Gallery. Or ...

(Feeling inspired yet?) ;)

Show and Tell: It's Emmett Appreciation Time! [Sep. 3rd, 2010|12:36 pm]

Oh, Emmett! Why do we love you so?

What is it about Emmett? Just saying his name makes me want to smile.

Emmett is the friend we all wish we had. He's funny and flamboyant, and he has a sense of style that's truly beyond compare. He's sweet-natured and giving, witty, warm, and wise.

He's beautiful - he's tall! - and he's irresistably sexy. And he can dance!

He's also a man of enormous complexity and strength.

There are many, many reasons to love Emmett - and I'd love to know some of yours. Let's make today an Emmett Appreciation Day.

Your Show-and-Tell assignment: Think of one or more of your favorite Emmett moments, and come share them here. Post a picture, share a quotation, show us your favorite Emmett icon, or just tell us what it is that you love about Em, and why.

Here's one of mine:

I love Emmett's transformation in 402 - from sad and doubtful faerie, to Clear Day (did I mention that I also love his Barbra impressions :)), to Glam-Emmett, his flame burning bright again, and ready to light up the world.

OK - you're it! :)

Show and Tell: The Diner Edition [Aug. 28th, 2010|01:25 am]


One of the things I enjoy the most about QAF, especially in the early seasons,
was the way "the gang" met up in the Diner. I think some of the best
interactions between characters occurred there, and so many clues to what was
going on inside a storyline were shared with us, the viewers, if we paid close
attention to what was going on in the Liberty Diner.

One of my favorite diner scenes is from episode 108. After Justin's Dad
beats the crap out of Brian everyone ends up in the Diner, even though
before the attack they all seemed to be heading off on their separate ways for
the rest of the night.

We see Justin embellishing his part in the drama, Brian petulantly trying to bring attention back to his trauma, and we find out, also in a dramatic way, that Debbie has been overworking trying to make ends meet. We get a whole lot of information, a whole lot of snappy dialogue all in the space of about two minutes.

Now it's your turn. ;)

Show me some of your favorite diner scenes and tell me why.

Show and Tell: The Music Edition [Aug. 13th, 2010|12:13 pm]

Our busy-busy Bunny hasn’t had much time to play lately, and she’s suggested that she could use a little help with keeping the QAF love alive and thriving. To that end, [info]etextraordinary, [info]frantic_quest and I will start posting Show and Tells on Fridays (yes, it really does take three regular fangirls to do a fraction of the work of one Bunny. ;))
♥ ♥ ♥

So on with the showing and telling ...
The music in QAF is one of the greatest things about this show. How often have we watched a scene, not paying much attention to the music in the background at first, only later to realize just how perfectly the lyrics fit the moment? The first time I really noticed was the dozenth or so time I watched the end of 204 and actually paid attention to the lyrics of "Chiquitita" – and ended up in tears.

Since then I've realized there are many, many examples where the music adds so much to the story – and I want to discover them all!

Come play Show and Tell and share some of your favorites!

Show and Tell: Brian's "lyin" eyes [Jan. 3rd, 2010|12:49 pm]

[Current Mood | peaceful]

Brian's eyes are always a give away as to how much he loves Justin. He might try to hide it, but we see it!

Here's my first example:

Gosh, I never tire of this picture...the love shines, hell it practically glows in their gazes.
*cap by me*

And here's another one of mine:

This exchange makes me melt, every time I see it. The way Brian looks at Justin...GUH
*icon by [info]paddies*

I could keep going because there are a million examples, but I wanted to leave a few for you guys. LOL

SHOW & TELL [Nov. 16th, 2009|09:58 pm]

[Current Mood | sleepy]

The diner plays such an important role in the show that it almost seems like it's another character. It introduced us to Debbie and it's the perfect spot for the gang to hang out.

Some of my fave scenes take place at the Liberty Diner from the PRIDE scene to Em eating his donut with a fork and it goes on.

Share some of your fave diner memories!

Show & Tell: Outside [Oct. 3rd, 2009|03:32 pm]

[Current Mood | happy]

I'm showing you one of mine, now it's your turn.

There's so many significant moments in this series that take place outside. Here's one of them. I love the sun shining down on them and Brian's faith in Justin at this moment and then Justin's completely correct reading of the situation between Brian and Michael. Brian and Justin are so very perfect for one another. Brian supports Justin with that unwavering faith and Justin, he, despite being so broken himself, gently prods Brian to be all that he can be. GOD I LOVE THEM SO.

Show & Tell: Romantical!Brian [Aug. 28th, 2009|04:14 pm]

[Current Mood | cheerful]

Brian isn't into romance and yet, he's so very romantical in just about every unconventional way possible. Agree or Disagree? Tell us and/or share your favorite romantical!Brian moments.

Here's one of mine. It is of course from PRIDE, 204.

"Hey Stud, wanna dance? I promise you won't forget this one."

I mean who else can be so sweet and romantical while referencing a tragedy? Anyway, I'm pretty sure that leaves us all swimming in the love!

Show & Tell: Drunk and/or High [Aug. 14th, 2009|06:49 pm]

[Current Mood | grumpy]

Getting high or drunk and acting silly, that's tonight's topic. Whether it's drunk!Justin or High/Drunk!Brian or anyone from the gang, it's all fun.

by [info]maxymama

This one from the muncher's brunch (to quote Brian) is an excellent example of all of them having a little too much fun. LOL Do you have more from this scene? And what about the tons of others. Show 'em or Tell me about 'em. And while you do it, think about this: Are any of them more honest when they're high or drunk?

Show & Tell: Emmett's outfits [Aug. 8th, 2009|12:05 pm]

[Current Mood | hungry]

Our beloved Emmett definitely has a way with clothes. His ensembles are terrific, definitely not soporific. I've showed you mine, now you tell me yours!

This outfit just makes me squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee every single time I watch 409. It showcases how Emmett's fashion sense has matured and become more sophisticated. ROFL Plus, he matches the snow. What do you think? Show us some of your favorite Emmett outfits and tell us why you like it.

Sorry I missed this yesterday guys - I lost the whole day to a fog pretty much.

Show & Tell: HUGS [Jul. 31st, 2009|11:19 pm]

[Current Mood | sick]

Brian and Justin communicate so much through touch and hugs are no exception. There's oh so many I'd love to pick and talk about but here's the one I'm going with from 407:

They're both almost tiptoeing around each other yet trying to reassure one another. It's so touching and so very them!

Now it's your turn!

SHOW & TELL: Daphne Moments [Jul. 24th, 2009|03:52 pm]

[Current Mood | rushed]

Daphne is always such a good friend. It doesn't matter whether she's sneaking out in her car to carry Justin away to find his Brian, or if she's reminding Justin that Brian never lied to him, she's a force to be reckoned with...agree/disagree or just want to wax poetic about Daphne? Have at it cuz it's show and tell night. :D

by [info]brianslave68
I enjoy the way Daphne stays loyal to Justin even when she thinks he's making a mistake. Like here, in the grocery store, she's listening to him ramble on and then she points out REALITY. Gotta love her!
