So I took the Which Reservoir Dog Are You test, but I had to open up IE because the submit button doesn't work in Netscape. Be warned.
Which reminds me of the only Reservoir Dogs slash story I've seen, Becoming by Debchan, about Mr. Orange (Tim Roth's character) and Mr. White, from White's perspective. I have a big thing for Tim Roth, and a moderate thing for Harvey Keitel. Neither one is pretty, but they're both fantastic actors who can do both subtle and overt stuff with their characters. I don't know if I really believe this story could have happened in the context of the movie, but that doesn't matter to me. [Reservoir Dogs, sex, manners]
Okay, I found another story, Lives Forever Changed by Sarah, from White's perspective. It's darker and, hmm... maybe not as well-written. I can't point at anything that's wrong with it, but it feels clumsy. I should learn how to critique fiction, I really should. [Reservoir Dogs, spoilers, violence, little sex]
Also, it made me think of the quote, "White contains every other shade," from Truth or Dare by Jane Mortimer:
Now Alex looked back at him and flashed an angelic smile. He said, "What's your favorite color?"
Mulder blinked. "What?"
"Is it blue? I'm guessing blue." You fuck. Mulder knew exactly what the man was doing. "Or maybe not, maybe blue is what you'd prefer it to be. Kind of a calm, average color choice. Maybe it's something more specific. Like the shade of light you see through water on the shore of a warm country. I'm fond of that, myself. But no... you'd go for more of a northern light, I think. Less stained glass, more pure."
What are you, a fucking art historian? Mulder bit down on the words.
"White," he ground out, instead.
"Come on, nobody's favorite color is white. Unless you're trying to make some kind of symbolic statement. And if you are, I'd get my hat back from the check-girl and hold it under the light, because it's gotten a little discolored lately."
"White contains every other shade."
"All truth in one place? Jeez, Mulder, that's not a color preference, that's a wish-fulfillment."
