I usually do this whole flurry of reruns on the actual day of the Pride celebrations. But why? You get overwhelmed and don’t see them all, I am almost as busy posting reruns all in a day as I would be writing new content. So this year, I am spreading them out! Starting with my oldest (and best? Maybe!) repost.
I’m gonna start with my all time favorite slashfic video, from vrxly. It is the only slashfic fanvid she has posted, but it is enough to forever place her in the fanvid hall of fame so far as I am concerned. Like if Aditya Chopra had only made DDLJ. Really, if you don’t watch any of the others, you should watch this one!
This is from Magpie08AA5, who does all slashfic from a whole variety of fandoms. Hindi film, but also Jerry Lee Lewis and Dean Martin, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, and, of course, Batman and Robin. Her films really stand out for me because it isn’t just about the titillation of a forbidden romance, she builds up these real emotions and relationships between them! Like in this, which is more about a youthful innocent pure love which has been corrupted in the years since.
Or this, which I always read as Shahrukh taunting and seducing Arjun. So, not so much about a love connection here, as a love-hate-sexual tension connection.
She goes old school too, pulling out the black and white to give us the wonderful romantic pairing of Ashok Kumar and Shashi Kapoor.
There’s also the delightful moment when the stars themselves craft some slashfic for us. For instance, this sketch from the 2004 FilmFare awards (go a minute and a half into the video).
Yogesh in the comments put up a link to an amazing video she (he? I always assume slashfic makers our women) that gives us the rare W+W love story!
And this one, also courtesy of Yogesh, but by recommendation not creation.
And, unrelated to above, while updating the links for the other videos I ran across this one which just has to be included.
And I just found a new video! Which is officially about “friendship” between Anushkha and Katrina, but really feels like more than friendship to me.
Along those same lines, this real actual in a movie song feels like more than “friendship” to me too.
