really loving the images being posted here!



Thank you very much, Chuck, you are very kind!  :-*


FYI, since the beginning, I have been going back to the earlier posts, searching and finding new images on line to add them here to fill in gaps and strengthen the continuity/commentary, so--if you have the time, scroll up and check the early pages to see what you might have missed--


Like this, for example--




Alex (Edward Holcroft):
Enters the club.


Danny:
Scottie, this is Alex.


Alex:
As usual, Alex is as wordless as he is polite, shaking hands and sitting down at the table.







Scottie:
Gesturing towards the drag Geisha lip syncher.
What did you make of her? Too much? That doesn't surprise me.
Danny's always preferred his men to be as straight as possible,
a tedious form of self-loathing that I've unsuccessfully tried to wean him off.


Danny:
Embarrassedly attempting to fend off the attack
Scottie, I was telling Alex--


Scottie:
I hope you told him this is where we first met?
You must be wondering how an old queer like me ended up friends with a handsome young man like him?
19 years old, he walked through that door.
As lost as a person could be.
I saw him, in his tatty jeans, with his cropped hair, and his puppy dog eyes.
I could guess his sad story without hearing a single word.
I presumed, if I bought him a drink, there wouldn't be a single second
when he wasn't hoping for someone better to come along.
What can I say, I'm a soft touch. So I bought him that drink.
And to my surprise, he talked to me for the whole night.
He didn't leave, even when others stalked him.
A small gesture, but it meant a great deal, and we have been friends ever since.
I'm the one he comes to when times are tough.
And they often are.
Poor Danny has a terrible track record for picking the wrong man.
He's an insufferable romantic, one of the last.
Does it fall to me to say--don't break his heart?







Alex:
I could never hurt Danny.







Scottie:
May I ask, as someone who has been witness to the breaking of many a heart--how you can be so sure?


Alex:
Because he is the only friend I have.






   

   



Danny:
Wordless, shocked, touched







Scottie:
Touched, pleased, and yet jealous
I'm pleased for you. I'm pleased for you both.





or this--





Still later--






Danny:
What are you thinking?


Alex:
Say it again?


Danny:
What are you thinking?



















Alex:
Nothing.



Next morning, Danny's Kitchen







Danny:
Let's go away for the weekend.

Alex:
Sure.

(He turns and raises the volume on the radio;
Alex always plays classical music, preferably Bach.)


I have to buy a battery for my laptop, I can't go without replacing it.


Danny:
I understand.

or this--




DANNY: So you never... messed around?


ALEX: In what sense?


DANNY: Any sense.


ALEX: I've been serious for a very long time.





DANNY: What made you change your mind? About me?


ALEX: I wondered what it would be like to do these walks with someone.


DANNY: I was worried that you were going to say it was cos' I made you laugh.


ALEX: I don't think you've ever made me laugh. It's not that you won't--


DANNY: I understand.


ALEX: I'm sure you will--


(Alex is beginning to learn to smile and then laugh easily--and is falling in love.)









or this--




DANNY: It's normally tidier than this...
(Then truthfully, he says)
No, it's never tidier than this.











(Sometime later, Alex is in the filled bathtub, seemingly exhausted and sad.
Danny is still fully dressed, shoes off, sitting on the floor of the bathroom next to the tub.
Alex slowly slips under the still water, eyes open, and Danny gently touches his chest.)
















ALEX: Had you guessed?


DANNY: I'd guessed you hadn't slept with guys before.
I thought maybe you'd slept with a couple of women. Can I ask you a question?



ALEX: (Near silent grunt of assent.)


DANNY: What's stopped you? You don't have to answer.


ALEX: How do you admit to someone you've never been in a relationship?
Who wants to hear?
And when they do, who wants to stay?










DANNY: I do.





And there's much more!  :laugh:  ::) Oh well, obviously I'm obsessionally following the series and dreading the last episode, which will be released on Amazon sometime tomorrow. I love the writing (Tom Rob Smith), I love the images (director Jakob Verbruggen), but especially love Ben Whishaw and Ed Holcroft and Jim Broadbent and scary, scary Charlotte Rampling and--

Well, you get the idea--


 ::) :-* :laugh:

 ;)

The kissing gifs are great!


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Unfortunately, I only 'found' them rather than 'made' them--

But--(sigh)--if only he (Mr. Holcroft) were real rather than in GIF form!   ::) :laugh: :-*

Oh well, in the meanwhile--
However ungrammatical,
this pretty much says it--
