Discussion Post: Paul  
I haven't seen it yet, but I'm trying to align the planets so that I'll be able to tonight. :) So, I thought it would be fitting with the US release we get a little bit of buzz going around these parts!

So, Paul... has anyone seen it yet? If so; thoughts, feelings, squee, fregg love? Discuss!

Of course, please assume the comments to this post WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS EVENTUALLY. <3

For those of us who haven't see it, I am a bit wary of the boys without Edgar - but can't help but be charmed by this interview over at slashfilm.

"This is all very much mine and my wife Nick's idea..." Ahh, Simon - how we love you guys.

The movie is a real treat. It almost comes across as a memoir to Simon and Nick's time before stardom- sci-fi geekouts and all. And the wonderful bromance/romance shines right through; they call each other Eggy and Sausage! Really, totally worth the price of the ticket.

Oh my gosh, I couldn't agree more! I saw SO MUCH of Simon and Nick in it. Particularly important I think was Clive's "growing away" from Graeme - particularly the scene with Paul where he admits to not only being jealous of Ruth, but also of Paul himself.

The little RPF part of my brain is abuzz telling me that's completely a sort of exorcising of his coping with their friendship evolving to being separate from each other.

AND OMG, I am shipping Clive/Graeme even harder than the film did. EGGY AND SAUSAGE!!!! *flail* I'm writing it now, I never write the first time I watch something, but I have to get this out of my head before it eats my brain.

Your ideas on the RPF aspect are so spot on- I think the script definitely came from a similar emotional place.

I look forward to your fic! I hope more start to pop up soon... the film is made for slash :)

*nod* It seems to just sort of be an evolutionary tale in that respect.

And it seriously is. Hah. I've got a bit sketched out right now that picks up immediately post film - pre epilogue dealing with the Clive-Graeme disconnect. I totally hope to see more, I can only imagine the possibilities.

I mean, honestly - they didn't even flesh out the boys' pre-comicon life.
