Joey/Chandler redux, with ficlet
hal
prillalar
Okay, I had my weekend fling with Joey/Chandler. There's a fair bit of fic out there. (See the original post for some links.) Most of it is pretty bad, either Nifty-style with "man milk mixing" and "10-inch Italian meat", or ff.n-style with Chandler turning into Miss Jane Bennett and taking to his bed with tears and sorrow over his love for Joey. And let's not even get into what happens to Monica.

But there are a few that I enjoyed:

Idle Hands by amatia

Not Kissing Joey by amedia -- great dialogue in this one

Here's a tiny snippet from me, to get them out of my system, and then I think I'm done. This will teach me to loll on the couch and watch sit-com reruns. What's next? Cartman/Butters?


Men Like Sports by Halrloprillalar
Friends, Joey/Chandler, PG, 188 words.
Olympic games.


"Okay." Joey pushed out the footrest of his chair. "We've got food, we've got beer, we've got ESPN."

Chandler pulled a bottle out of the cooler. "All set for our Olympic holiday."

"Yeah," Joey said. "We won't have to leave the apartment for two weeks."

"Unless we want to get laid."

Joey stared at the TV for a minute. Then he turned to Chandler and grinned. "Hey..."

"Oh, no. Don't even have that thought in the same city as me." Chandler raised his beer, stared at it, didn't drink. "You know, this whole experience is tainted now. You've tainted it."

"It wouldn't be real or anything." Joey gestured at Chandler with the remote. "Just like we were in jail or something."

"If we were in jail, I would pimp your ass out for cigarettes." Chandler grabbed the remote. "You're not allowed to hold things that are...you're not allowed to hold things anymore." He turned up the volume. "Now shut up and drink your beer. From a glass."

They watched the opening ceremonies for a few minutes.

"Joey?"

"What?"

"Ask me again when rhythmic gymnastics is on."

What's next? Cartman/Butters?

I would totally read that!

Though I've watched precious little Friends, I've seen enough that I could clearly picture (and hear) the "You know, this whole experience is tainted now. You've tainted it."

Good to hear! These two both have such a distinctive voice; it's difficult to capture it.

hee hee! that's awfully sweet. *g*

Aww, you took my Friends cherry! I was so proud of my utter lack of exposure to all things Friends!

Well worth it, though. Just for this line alone: "You're not allowed to hold things that are...you're not allowed to hold things anymore."

Hee! You didn't have to click the cut, you know. *g* I'm really glad you enjoyed your first time.

*roars with laughter* Yup, got 'em out of my system. Always read the good stuff first.

love, lore

Sometimes it doesn't take much. *g* I'm glad it made you laugh!

I must loll around and watch oldschool harem anime with attractive male characters reruns of old sitcoms sometime soon, if I'm likely to get the same result. I never had time for this show, but this fic was great. :D

"Drink your beer. From a glass." Genius. XD

I never followed it closely either, but somehow the reruns pinged me that time. I hope it doesn't happen next time I see Seinfeld.

I'm glad you liked it!

I love you too, flower. :)

This is adorable.

Hee! I thought you'd tick me off for watching sitcoms!

"Ask me again when rhythmic gymnastics is on."

ROFL!

And, um, what is the thumb forefinger thing anyway?

:) I don't know what the thumb forefinger thing is, though. It's mysterious.

hee, so cute! i can totally see them having a conversation like that in the show!

Yay! That's what I was going for, so I'm glad it worked for you.

South Park Slash! (where did Japanese fans get the idea that Kenny is a bishounen?)

What's next? Cartman/Butters?

I have been *actively* searching for Cartman/Kyle. I've waded through the Stan/Kyle and Kenny/Kyle and bizarrely much of it is intellislash and all of it seems to be 100% dead-serious in tone. Goddammit.

Re: South Park Slash! (where did Japanese fans get the idea that Kenny is a bishounen?)

Stan/Kyle? I just don't see it. Cartman, though, Cartman is gay, gay, gay. Cartman is the weepy uke of South Park. And Cartman/Kyle seem such a natural match-up.

OGOD the Cartman/Butters. You'd keel that ded. :-D And this? You have their voices spot on. The best Friends I've read, by far. :-)

It was so strange -- I just got hit by a major slash crush on these two on Friday night, spent the weekend in a haze of fic and vid seraching, and by Sunday was pretty much over it. I needed to write something to make sure it was truly out of my system.

I have no plans to write any Cartman/Butters, but I know better than to say "never". *g*
