My newest fandom: Alexander

I'm getting into a new fandom. It's [insert major drum roll here] Alexander The Great.

How did that come?

Mmh, well, it all began with Pro 7, a German TV station, airing previews for the movie "Alexander" with Colin Farrell and Jared Leto which was set to be aired on September 23rd. I actually saw one of these previews, which was by sheer luck because I rarely watch TV these days.

Then, I guess it was in the wee morning hours on September 23rd, [info]mllesatine, [info]only_gremo and I were chatting on MSN. Gremo told us she had just seen "Alexander" on DVD and she raved about how hot and slashy Hephaestion (Jared Leto) and Alexander's (Colin Farrell) relationship is and that it is a pity they never once kiss or have sex in the movie, even though there's a lot of UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension) in it.

That made me sit up and take notice. I must admit, I have a huge thing for UST. If UST is well-written in fics, it makes you all squirm and squee and excited because you so want the characters to do it finally! That's why I was intrigued to know more about "Alexander".

Much later that same day, Gremo and me were once again on MSN. Gremo was busy ripping the few scenes with Alexander and Hephaestion from the DVD she had borrowed from her friend. When she was done, she sent the clips to me so that I could see the hot UST for myself.

Oh and how I saw it! Those looks! Uhhhh! The intimate hugs! Ahhhh!! The looks again, as if they want to devour each other with their eyes! Then the massage-scene! OMG!! Alexander throwing his head back and moaning whilst Hephaestion massages his neck. OH BOY!! And all that, but never once a kiss or sex. That's so not fair!!

Well, uh where was I? -- Ah yes, in the evening on the same day, Gremo (again her, see how it is her fault that I got so into this fandom in the first place? There's no denying!) posted an "Alexander" picspam to her journal, which I, of course, looked at. I only didn't watch "Alexander" when it was on TV this evening because first I hate interruption caused by advertisement and secondly Gremo told me "Alexander" is lengthy and except for the slashy moments it's not that great.

Well, as it is, I told my friends Chrissie and Anna about the movie. They are not into slash, not at all, but they tolerate it and my fangirling about it. Chrissie then suggested to watch "Alexander" together. No sooner said, than done. On September 29th, Chrissie, Anna and me watched "Alexander" and from this moment on I knew that this would be my new fandom.

Two days later I went to our local library and got out a few books. Three different biographies of Alexander The Great. Two about the Ancient Greek World and one that's called "100,000 Years of Sex". *lol* Don't look at me like that! I found it very interesting. Did you know something like dildos actually exist for about 12,000 years? No? Well, I said it's highly interesting.

Well, today I was looking for a few Jared Leto pics I could make icons from and I stumbled across something very, VERY interesting. Look:

Is actor and musician Jared Leto coming out? In an online interview last week, the 34-year-old star said: "I'll give you an exclusive...I'm gay." Asked if he was serious, Leto replied: "As a goose." It's not the first time the actor, who also heads rock band 30 Seconds To Mars, has brought up his sexuality. In an interview with Out magazine in 2004, Leto told writer Degen Pener: "I know I'm gay. I must be gay." In the Oliver Stone flick Alexander, Leto played Colin Farrell's lover - but there were no sex scenes between the two actors. "If there had been," Leto said, "it would be the best man-on-man sex you've ever seen."

First, I've only known Jared from his band 30 Seconds To Mars. Even though I like their music, I've never once looked up "Jared Leto" on the internet or somewhere else, you could say I don't know anything about him. (That will definitely change, because now I am a fan! ^.^) Therefore I don't know whether he's gay, bi or hetero or whatever.

But what he says about that "if so-sex scene". Whoa!! I'd really love to see that "best man-on-man sex you've ever seen". Now, I have those naughty mental images! Great! Thanks Jared!

Last but not least, two pics of Jared Leto and Colin Farrell, one taken from the "Alexander" premiere and the other is a "Alexander" movie still:
