The film is unobjectionable. He enjoys romantic comedies, but not ones in which the hero has more romantic chemistry with his best friend and the heroine should clearly stay with her sensible and kind ex-boyfriend instead. The movie fades into the background, eclipsed by the soft warmth of Sans against him. Edge must have stiffened. Forcing himself to relax, he nods. Sans leans on him a little more.

Touching the Void

Sans is taking up far more than his share of the armrest. The cuff of his jacket has bunched up. The light coming from the screen is bright enough to let Edge see the collar peeking out. He tries not to stare, but the hint of black leather keeps dragging his attention back. Edge turns to look at him, biting back a protest, but Sans only shrugs off the jacket and slouches against him again.

Edge could touch him if he dared. He could-- He could sit here and keep his hands to himself is what he could fucking do. Sans turns his hand over, palm up, and wiggles his fingers. Edge turns his head to stare at him. Sans grins back, a placid surface concealing deep waters, giving him nothing to work with.

After a moment, Sans gives a quiet heh, shrugs and looks away. Before he can withdraw his hand, Edge covers it with his own. Back then, Edge thought he had a plan. He thought he knew the way this was going to go.

Clarity strikes Edge like a punch in the face. Reluctantly, he looks back at the screen. Then another. Another-- oh, Sans is trying to do shave and a haircut.

Of course. Edge makes him wait several seconds before providing the final two bits. He has standards. He settles into his seat to finish out the movie, finding himself glad for its banality. It went okay when Edge held his hand while Sans talked about his shitty childhood trauma, which was comforting but pretty much the opposite of a romantic overture. If Edge balked, hey, plausible deniability.

waiting for the light

Our world is a big old love-in, edgelord, Sans would say. Platonic buddies hold hands at the movies all the time. Just take my word for it. Things are going well, until the sex scene near the end of the movie. The scene will tastefully cut to black in a second. That is definitely some artfully implied fucking going on. Kind of impressive how the dude just climbs on top and apparently inserts Tab A into Slot B without using his hands or looking down. A lingering shot of her hands moving over his naked back, overlaid by tame moaning.

They have simultaneous PG orgasms.

It feels like the scene lasts a mortifying eternity but in reality, it probably lasted 90 seconds. Someone shushes them. It ends happily ever after in a house in the suburbs with a dog, as these things usually do. The credits roll. The lights begin to slowly go up. You missed your calling as a movie reviewer.

Despite his words, he looks content. His eyelights are soft. Their destination is in the artsy-fartsy district. He thought a date would feel different.

Not that this is a date. Look at how very innocent of all things he is.

Red keeps saying that this universe is supposed to be all rainbows and kittens. He parks the car. His gaze drifts back to the cafe, or more likely to the enormous brown tabby studiously grooming themselves in the window. There was a cat cafe in Mew Mew Kissy Cutie, so she nerded out about it.

So they do. Yes, okay, the inside of the cafe is decorated like a magical girl anime exploded and also the servers are wearing cat ears, but hey, Japanese pop music. He tried.

As the hostess hustles over to intercept them, Edge stands there for a moment, his head cocked to one side, taking it all in. He looks like a biker that took a wrong turn into Candyland, tall and dark and, yes, intimidating.

For a minute, Sans wonders if Edge is going to take this for an elaborate joke and get pissed. The hostess warms up a little when he says that, and miraculously, their service for the rest of the night turns out to be amazing. Other times it breaks his heart. By a great deal. This is more entertaining than the movie was. Edge bends down, picks it up and gives it a gentle underhand toss.

Immediately, the kitten abandons the shoelace, tumbles to her feet and skitters off after it.

He clears his throat and grins at Edge, who is looking at him like he thinks Sans might need medical attention. Sans tries not to be envious. Then again, cats have a pretty much ideal existence, what with all the napping and the eating, so he can be as jealous as he wants.

Edge considers Sans thoughtfully. They need us out so the next reservation can come in. Sans finishes up his coffee and nods at the kitten. He would kill me in my sleep, not to mention what my brother would do. You have to get down now. But it was disastrous: He broke his leg, driving the calf bone up through the knee socket. Both of them knew that a broken leg on a two-man climb, with rescue impossible, was a death sentence, and indeed Simpson tells us he was rather surprised that Yates decided to stay with him and try to get him down.

We know that Simpson survived, because the movie shows the real-life Simpson and Yates, filmed against plain backgrounds, looking straight on into the camera, remembering their adventure in their own words. We also see the ordeal re-enacted by two actors Brendan Mackey as Simpson, Nicholas Aaron as Yates , and experienced climbers are used as stunt doubles.

The movie was shot on location in Peru and also in the Alps, and the climbing sequences are always completely convincing; the use of actors in those scenes is not a distraction because their faces are so bearded, frost-bitten and snow-caked that we can hardly recognize them. Advertisement Yates and Simpson had a foot rope.

Yates' plan was to lower Simpson feet and wait for a tug on the rope. That meant Simpson had dug in and anchored himself and it was safe for Yates to climb down and repeat the process.

A good method in theory, but then, after dark, in a snow storm, Yates lowered Simpson over a precipice and left him hanging in mid-air over a drop of unknowable distance. Because they were out of earshot in the blizzard, all Yates could know was that the rope was tight and not moving, and his feet were slipping out of the holes he had dug to brace them.

After an hour or so, he realized they were at an impasse. Simpson was hanging in mid air, Yates was slipping, and unless he cut the rope they would both surely die. So he cut the rope. Simpson says he would have done the same thing under the circumstances, and we believe him.

You are a stupid who fell down on the mountain. Mr Simpson summed up the abuse in a tweet which read: Snapping, Mr Simpson wrote: Yates and Simpson appeared in the film adaptation of his book.

Doctors said his leg injuries sustained on Siula Grande would leave him unable to climb, but he went on to make six unsuccessful attempts of the North Face of the Eiger. Mr Simpson told the Guardian: Nobody has the first idea, really.

He added: Maybe it serves me right. Find a university course for you NOW. Terms and Conditions. Style Book. Weather Forecast.Other times it breaks his heart. Web content grabber.
