I am six minutes into the newest episode of Rome, and I just have to say: HOLY GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW. HOLY GOD. HOLY GOD. HOLY GOD. I DO NOT CARE IF WINGED HORSES START FLYING OUT OF POMPEY'S ASS AND NEON SIGNS SPROUT UP ON THE FORUM SAYING "OMG MARCUS IS FINEEEEE."

HOLY SWEET BABY JESUS.



Atia, upper-class, socially ambitious mother. "What are you doing?"

Boy and sister look up, sister with a trace of worry on her face. Boy is painting the toenails of his very pretty sister, which OK, is awesome in and of itself. In the previous episode, Momma was fretting over the fact that he seemed not to be fucking every slavegirl in sight. And um, took rather drastic measures in an effort to remedy this that included feeding him some unusual substances.

Boy, smiling and weilding brush. Sister is ravishingly pretty and has her foot placed out in front of her. They're both sitting on the floor. "It's rather fun. There's quite an art to it."

Mother. "Strange boy." She comes to sit by them.

"I've just heard a very strange tale about you -- " touches the boy on the arm -- "From the kitchen staff. For what possible reason, I wonder, would you and Caesar be skulking about in a cupboard?"

Boy. "What? We were -- it was nothing."

Mother, who is just beaming. "Nothing? It doesn't sound like nothing. You seduced him, you sly little fox."




It gets better after that, of course, but here is the key part: the boy in question OCTAVIAN AHAAHAHA FUTURE AUGUSTUS CAESAR AHAHAHAH OMG. OMG. OMG. I know that means nothing very little to you, so uh, just enjoy the fact that this is the mother and this is the boy. Isn't he pretty? You may recognize him from the Master & Commander movie, I'm told.

The transcript does NO justification to the sheer, howling, amazingness of that scene. You should be watching Rome, people. You need to be watching Rome. It is plentiferously available through various means.

There are no words. No. Words. This show is every plebey fangirl fantasy I have EVER HAD. Combined into one gloriously produced whole.

dfkjlighdf You know, I keep trying to write Antony/Vorenus slash. And I keep failing. Miserably. Because my brain just gets to the screencap above and the kissing thing, and everything goes dark for a while because I have passed out from the hot, hot, hot wrong.

adsflkjg hate it? How, in the name of God, can anybody hate this show?

Oh wait. I guess MOST people would be slightly creeped out by the rampant sex, crazy undertones of incest, and unending fandom geeker. :>

I kept trying to send you an e-mail about this,but then it turned out that you didn't have a paid account anymore and I couldn't figure out what your e-mail was and damn you.

Anyway, the point is that drop me a line or something about this. I can hook you the mofo up.
