This community was created to showcase and disseminate so-called "Shippers' Manifestos" "public declarations of fannish love" for particular pairings ("ships").The community moderators have solicited fans of every conceivable pairing to draft essays describing the appeal of the pairing and its canonical foundation, with the goal of attracting newcomers and giving them a starting point for further exploration - as well as reminding existing (or former) fans of the foundation for their passion.
In short, Bodie and Doyle, like "real" people, are layered and complex and not really susceptible to easy categorization. Bodie regularly makes outrageous comments and then looks to see Ray's reaction; inevitably Ray is in the background covering his mouth and snickering, trying not to crack up, while Bodie attempts to keep a straight face and looks quite smugly pleased with himself: COWLEY: There's something waiting for us in a telephone box.
And this is part of what makes them so endlessly appealing. MINISTER: I don't like the sound of that 'something'. COWLEY [as Doyle cracks up]: There are times, Bodie, when I find your ribaldry quite distasteful!
A nice place to start would be the Dao-Dao Islands some seven to ten minutes away from the seaport, when riding a motorboat.
It is a rather big island, with an area size of about 1.1057 hectares.
Finally, Poloyagan Beach have rocky outcroppings and coral reefs so one should be careful in trekking them.
This is the Bodie/Doyle essay that was drafted for the ship_manifesto livejournal community and posted there on June 13, 2005 (the post is here).
Thanks also to smaragdgrun and molly_o, who helped me organize the millions of thoughts and ideas that threatened to overwhelm me, and meri_oddities, who introduced me to Pros, mentored and encouraged me, and eventually entrusted me with her baby, the Circuit Archive. What is it about Pros that inspires this kind of loyalty, this kind of obsession?
And I have no words sufficient to express my gratitude to Angelfish Archivist, my partner-in-Pros, who consoled and cajoled me, offered advice, suggestions, and support when I was ready to tear this whole thing up, inspired me with her deep and enduring love for the characters, and applied her incredible vision, insight, and empathy to my scribblings with sensitivity and a delicate touch. Why has its appeal proved so enduring, even in the U.
CI5's mandate: take on the most vile and violent of the criminals, and do not hesitate to use their own methods against them when other means are inadequate; fight violence with violence, in order to save innocents from violence. " He seems at times to be troubled by violence and killing - yet violence often seems to be simmering under his surface, and there are times when he seems veritably to exult in being as violent and wild as he can. It's understated (if not precisely subtle) - yet there is hardly an episode that does not include some indication of their deep commitment to each other. It's snarky at times, silly at times (as in the "food through a goose" exchange in Lawson's Last Stand, or the "ears like a hawk" exchange in Everest Was Also Conquered), and surprisingly suggestive at times ("I'm like a fine piece of machinery - I need lubrication," Bodie tells Doyle in Heroes) - but it's always intimate: the undertone of affection is ever-present and unmistakable.
