Summary of Brotherly Touches (2x07) - Manlove by the Family Winchester
Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
Summary of Brotherly Touches (2x07)
Does thinking in unison count? I mean, it's definitely not physical. And it's not psychic, per se. It's not manlove, either. Just... unity. Beautiful, kick ass unity. Should that count?

2x07 - The Usual Suspects
Touches: 1
Sam: 1
Dean: 0
Mutual: 0

It's just a single touch, but you gotta love how gratuitous it is.


Total Touches: 19

Sam: 7
Percentage: 36.8%
Average per Episode: 1.00

Dean: 10
Percentage: 52.6%
Average per Episode: 1.43

Mutual: 2
Percentage: 10.5%
Average per Episode: .29

There is still this bizarre pattern of unrequited, episodic touching, No Exit and IMToD aside.

p.s. As it stands, Simon Said is clearly the aberration. Not in spirit, thank goodness, but as far as the touching itself is concerned. That's not exactly surprising, but I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern mixed up a little. (Let's hope.) Next week looks to be a doozy.

The thinking in unison totally counts as psychic manlove. And oh, the little shoulder nudge is the lovingest love what ever loved.

The thinking in unison is just awesome, man. I don't know how I'll do it justice with the picspams.

I love JP SO MUCH for that shoulder nudge. Words fail. *flails*

p.s. I could have sworn your "I remember why I love" list was available on a shirt or something at cafeepress? Did I just dream that? I bought moveablehistory's anthology there, and searched for that t-shirt to buy, and couldn't find it. :(

It is - I own one. Hang on, the link is somewhere in veronamay's LJ but I'm not sure where. I'll track it down if you want?

You're just AWESOME, plain and simple!

*hugs you tight* Thank you so much, honey! :)

I love that there's a bunch of us wandering around in those shirts. I feel so clannish. :)

Psychic manlove totally counts! :D And that shoulder check said so much for such a little gesture, it's potency lay in the fact that they were seperated for so long.
sargraf From: sargraf Date: November 11th, 2006 07:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
They pack so much meaning into the littlest of gestures, don't they? :D It's just amazing to watch, to see how it develops and shifts and evolves.

And expressions too. :D:D *points to icon* :D
sargraf From: sargraf Date: November 12th, 2006 11:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, icon! :D I loved that little mini disgusted sneer. :) JP's expressions in this episode were just priceless! The insurance scene? *dies*
dragynville From: dragynville Date: November 13th, 2006 12:20 am (UTC) (Link)
I love the way that expression speaks to the whole older brother/younger brother dynamic, that Dean won the 'argument' because he's the older brother, and Dean's expression right before *points to icon* says he knows it. :D:D

JP gave great face in this ep. I love the way he kept flipping between his earnest, sincere face and his "Dean? The hell?!" face! XD

You need to read my review this week, because I mention you twice XD I thought of you during that little touch at the end during the stupid ADR dialogue. I loved the way they thought in unison!
sargraf From: sargraf Date: November 11th, 2006 07:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Eep! Now I'm all embarrassed. :O)

You know, I didn't even hear that line the first time. My senses went *OMGZOOM!* on the shoulder bump. They still keep doing that; I hear the (painfully forced) line, but I don't register it at all. *needs system reboot*

The thinking in unison was so awesome and should totally count. :)

And because I have some bizarre fixation with the way they walk side-by-side, I'd like to point out that they were sort of doing that synchronized steps thing again at the end, only with opposite sides so it was more a mirror-image thing. And I think it's totally unconscious on their part because the shot starts with JP walking behind JA but yet they still end up stepping in sync when side-by-side. Even after that awesome nudge, they don't fall out of sync. It's so cute...

And I'm clearly crazy... LOL

I'm thinking I should go ahead and revise the pie charts. Do you think it should count as an actual "touch", or just go in with the picspam later (which is what I'm planning)? I counted the psychic manlove in IMToD, but that was actual psychic stuff. Hmm. (I love how complex they are! :))

That was cute. And I think it must be second nature now, as much as I got fixated on Sam/JP's thought process in Devil's Trap.

Hey, if you're crazy, we all are! (Wait, don't answer that. ;))

You definitely need to count the psychic manlove in this episode. :)
sargraf From: sargraf Date: November 12th, 2006 11:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
It'll be in the meta chapter, but I wonder if it should count for the pie charts...? It's not actually psychic the way the stuff in IMToD was. ...Or maybe it was. *ponders*

(Their relationship is so fascinating, yeah? *loves!*)
