I am fairly immune to femslash. I think the last show where I went, 'yeah, they're together' about two women was Xena. And you can't argue with me. Xena and Gabrielle were *married*, okay? Okay.
But last nights ep of Warehouse 13? I was watching the interaction between HG Wells and Myka? And yeah. So much potential and UST there I can't even begin to describe it. Now, first off, they're both beautiful, though I think HG Wells is *more* beautiful. There's something about Myka's chin sometimes that's just wonky. Like...I don't think she has a very strong jaw line, and that looks funny from certain angles. Also, it might be the accent. I *love* HG Wells' accent. Which it British, btw.
The scene with the grappling hook, and how Myka was all, 'oh, that's so old fashioned', but she was clearly still *impressed* and envious and wanted that toy! And HG held on a little longer than necessary, people. And then the rest of the ep, with the working so well together, and Myka saying that HG was an agent 'under her' who did whatever she said! It's not just the dialogue, it's the actors' interaction in the scene. And it was there!
Also, the final scenes. Artie was asking out the doctor he's been crushing on since forever, Pete was asking out Angry Veterinarian Lady (yes, Claudia was not doing anything romantic, but the *majority* of the final scenes were 'romantic' in nature!) and then there's Myka, packing away the grappling gun that HG left her when she ran off in that really pretty box, and *tucking the note in her pocket so she can take it out at night and look at it!*
Oh! Oh! Oh! And now I know where I've seen her before! She was Dexter's crazy girlfriend in, what, season 2?
But here's the thing. I *refuse* to actively ship them until it is resolved whether HG is really good, or really evil. She was Bronzed for a reason, I'm sure. And I suspect evilness. And I'm not going to have yet another pairing where all they can do is have angsty hate sex.
