Teen-through-young-adult AU: Jon[athan] and "Stephen" are gay dog groomers in California, while Olivia and company are eighth graders nearby. Oh, and a cute new British kid just transferred into their class. And Kristen maybe likes him?? Drama!

Wildly out-of-season, I know, but I needed a last-minute fill for the [community profile] hc_bingo round 2 card, prompt "heat stroke."

'I've just moved here from England, so you're welcome to ask me any questions you have in preparation for our inevitable re-conquest of your charming little nation. Cheerio.' )

Collected fanworks from the world described in this monologue (transcribed here). Each piece isn't necessarily in the same universe as any of the others; the only thing binding them together is that they're all based on some interpretation of the original clip.


Strict Canon

"Stephen" and a man known only as "Jonathan" are a gay couple in early-'90s California, where they run an upscale dog grooming salon.

The area is populated by other Daily Show cast members, with age-fudging as necessary. For instance, Olivia and other young correspondents are eighth graders at a local school.

This will have a proper header and so on eventually. Also, I'm not the only one to play with this idea, right? Links to other fanworks based on the same clip are appreciated!

For the prompt "Fixed" from [personal profile] politicette. Trouble threatens to break up the most beautiful gay dog-grooming couple in all of 1980's California. Can Olivia, with the help of her quirky multi-ethnic posse, figure out a way to save it?

Or, more seriously: a story about three people trying to find a way to balance each other out, plus the friends who play D&D with them.

'Their love is beautiful and true like a Disney movie. Stephen even has pretty princess eyelashes! They're meant to be!' )

Written for the picture prompts thread, in which [personal profile] w_thit gave me this.

The background of the setting is an AU I've been kicking around in my head. Late eighties; slight fudging of ages, but not much. Jon[athan] and "Stephen" are running their upscale dog salon in California, and have started to bond with kid!Olivia, who lives nearby. (Olivia goes to school with kiddie versions of some of the other correspondents, but that doesn't come up in this bit.)

The girl made a beeline for the door, quickly enough that she didn't see Jonathan wince (and Lady McPawsington try to claw him for mishandling her, though he had wisely clipped her nails first thing). )

I've been on a roll with this monologue (transcribed here) lately. Here's a musical version.

Hands up if you saw this coming a mile away.

Five different ficlets based on the outline which Stephen's writers helpfully provided in last week's monologue. Detailed though it was, it's still marvelously open to interpretation. How much of it is literal? Who is the mysterious "Jonathan"? Is anyone else hungry for cupcakes with icing tuxedos now?

—well, that just proves he's straight, doesn't it? Gay people wouldn't want forever in the first place. )
