r/e:  The Brokeback Trek picture:

It would seem that I have started a tradtion.

A nauseating tradition with absolutely no positive redeeming values what-so-ever.

The best type of tradition.  tongue

I have to admit that I was watching ST V earlier today and almost choked on my pizza when Spock said:

"Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons."

And if so I have a hilarios yet obvious idea. Then we can see how acurate your comparison is.

The eyeballs or the knitting needles?

Or do we want to know?

Anyway, I have to wonder if even the most ardent shipper can really believe that Leela wouldn't try to change Fry's personal hygiene habits.

Both. Without them I'm stuck with crochet. Which is fine and all, but you loose the hook and you're stuck with needlepoint. 'Bout time I got my loom out again, I suppose...

She already has, even if unintentionally. He was showering in 30% Iron Chef, and by Devil's Hands his apartment was all picked up except for those few stains along the ceiling.

He showered in I, Roommate too, though. But hey, I'm a little bit of a Fry apologist, especially for the later episodes, so I won't argue against your theory.

As Homer says of Marge:

"I used to worry Marge was too good for me. She was always thinking of ways to improve me. But then, part of her died. She doesn't try anymore. So we're all where we wanna be!"

HA! I did the exact same thing a few days ago, except with sushi.
Shoehorned though it may be, the humour in that movie was probably the only redeeming element.

On Fry's hygene: It's amazing how dratically Fry's hygene chaged throughout the show because of a little of Leela's influence wether she meant to or not. He went from a down right slob to a pretty cleanly guy. His hygne has slowly been improving throughout the series.

I choked on air then I laughed at that part. I thought it was funny. It was so random and sounded a bit gay. Defiantly not the best movie though.

Yeah I have to agree Leela has definatly made a difference as far as Fry's hygene is concerned. I mean in season one he went out of his way to destroy his apartment and by season four he was sculpting his plants and trying to get new cabinets for his kitchen. I don't think it's Leela trying to clean him up as much as it's just him trying to improve himself for her.

Yeah, but, lets face it:  Homer's a complete arse these days. Fry's just an idiot, and a fairly decent idiot too compared to that. But an idiot.

I'm possessed by the Christmas mood, right now, I am. As such, I remember my unfulfilled promise I made last year... To write a Fanfic Christmas Special!

So I suppose I'll have to write two this year. (Don't laugh... Don't laugh... Put down that hilariously amusing knife immediately...)

Like most of my originally prose fics, it's inspired by a song. However, it this case, it's also based on a song.

I'll try and have it up next week sometime.

“Go get 'er, you causal agent!” nudged some sentient temporal phenomena behind him. “Don't just stare like some strange quark!” Fry elbowed the being aside, annoyed. It floated up next to him.

   “Go talk to her,” it whispered. It glanced from side to side. “Even taking Copenhagen into effect I bet you have a lot in common!”

   “Like what?”

   “Well,” it breathed, “You're both here, alone, Xmas Eve. The only humans on the entire planet who are out.”

   Fry glanced over at her. She was entering the frozen food section.

   “She's actually buying things...” he said. “She probably has a purpose here. I'm just... Wandering.”

   “Aww, don't be such a Higgs... Your mood's bogging everyone else down; It's Xmas, for Planck's sake!”

   Should I? he wondered.

   The phenomena's wavefunction collapsed into a knowing grin, before meandering off down a side aisle. It turned to face Fry again.

   Fry turned and headed away.

   Take that, Ehrenfest! thought the cheery space-time knot as it hummed ‘You Ain't Nothin' but a Hadron’, tweaked a few timelines and found itself in a parallel universe.

Any guesses as to who the girl is?

Err.. anyways... Back to shippyness.  Or more specifically, Fry/Leela:


By Zmithy from The Leela Zone

A lot of people have said that TKOS is really depressing at the end and was unneeded, but I never really thought so.  Of course when i first saw it i was almost as crushed as Fry, but it at least meant that even if this particular plan failed, Fry COULD win Leela one way or another.

It proved that Fry was able to win Leela's heart even without the worms.  That time it didn't work, but there was hope.

I always enjoyed the angst aspect of TKOS's ending, and like to imagine a more bitter jaded Fry eventuating from that episode's events. Moody, unshaven, hanging out in smoky bars and angrily lashing out at his friends when they try to offer their support.

"I guess not."

How much more depressing do ya need?

Well Leela was obviously wrong about that, wasn't she?  She DID feel the same way about him as he did her at one point in time.  She just didn't remember when she told Fry that, and the idea probably seemed pretty crazy to her.

I don't see how romatic spelling her name in the stars is. Sure, normally I would say it is romantic since stars are incredibly hard to move (I've tried).

 But he had an awesomely powerful and extremely badassed Gravitational Pump. The amount of effort from him that that took was virtually nil.

So really, when you think about it, it's on the same level as writing her name in the sand.

Twilight is quite possibly the worst popular book ever written.

It'd be more like carving it in 50ft letters on a sandstone cliff, or possible painting it on limestone, so that everyone passing by can see it. That sort of thing can be incredibly romantic if it's the culmination of a larger effort.

It's the thought that counts. No seriously, the badass gravity pump was built to stop the chronitons from escaping, but all that was on Fry's mind (such as it were) is Leela, and he expresses that by using the said pump to move the stars.

It also proved that Fry's will have to do something absolutely incredible just to win over Leela's heart.

You know what, I really hate the phrase "winning over Leela's heart". I really do. Love isn't a race, nor should it ever be considered a competition. I'm not going to go any further- love's complicated...

I always liked TKOS even if it is depressing. I really think its the wistling at the end when Fry is staring out into space that seems to make it sadder though. Like in LOTF for some reason it's just sadder with Simple Minds in the background.

I can see that happening actually. It seems like something he would do, at least for awhile. (Hell, I'd do the same thing in that position.) Then he'd bounce back and come up with another hairbrained yet romantic way to impress Leela.

TKOS is one of my absolute top favorite episodes and I remember being surprised when I first learned that a lot of people found the ending really depressing. To me the ep. is a near-perfect mixture of all the things that make Futurama amazing. I guess it's just me, but the ONLY endings I felt were really sad (as opposed to sweet, like L&R, LH and TS) were Jurassic Bark and LOTF. And a little bit Devil's Hands, after I found out it was the last one.
If anything, the TKOS ending is bittersweet.
