2 Works in Down With Love
Fandom: Down With Love
Series/Sequel: This is a series of four vignettes.
Disclaimers: Down With Love and its characters belong to the folks at 20th Century Fox. This work is for love, not for profit.
Notes: I loved Down With Love, an enjoyable light-hearted sex comedy with beautiful sets, clothes, and most of all beautiful people. Having said that, my brain wanted to take these interesting, yet understandably two-dimensional characters, and flesh them out a bit. This is a peek at who they are and why they are, a glimpse of the more serious side.
Given that fanfic means we take artistic license with practically everything, I have re-cast Peter McManus in this little vignette. In my slashy version of DWL, he is played by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. I love what David Hyde Pierce did in this film and his comedic timing is damn near perfect. This casting change has nothing to do with his performance and everything to do with my rose (denial) tinted sunglasses. If not to your bent, feel free to change the date listed and picture someone else.
Down With Love is set in 1962.
