Subtext Attractions

Few things are as quintessentially lesbian on the internet as fanvids. They are the precocious child of that original online lesbian staple, fanfic. But fanvids have stepped outside of their mother’s shadow to become their own unique entity. They are, quite simply, a force majeure. And they’re also a lot of fun. One of my favorites of along these lines are the mashup trailers. You know. And a few of my favorite recently bring some of my favorite ships together with a few of my favorite movies. Mazel tov, Internet, you make everything gayer.

Imagine Rizzoli & Isles

Bonus lesbo points for Dana Fairbanks appearance.

The Swan Queen Wears Prada

I am so behind on this show. Have they kissed yet or what?

The Big Naomily

That woman! Emily! That woman! Naomi! That fandom! Naomily!

The Glee Games

Please, you know Santana Lopez would dismantle the rest of the Glee Club, and then force a two-winner ending with Brittany by threatening to eat nightlock berries together and/or kill them both with the razor blades in her hair.

Droid Mountain

You always knew R2 and C-3PO were Brokeback for each other.
