littlemousling: Yarn with a Canadian dime for scale (Default)
So, in the course of some Classics-major bonding yesterday (including walking home from Haverford, having missed the bus), some of us were discussing how, in sci-fi, sexual tension often is enhanced and/or interrupted by one person shooting the other. Or, in any case, given two characters with UST, one seems to end up shooting the other eventually.

Examples we came up with:

Scully shot Mulder (X-Files)
Starbuck shot Apollo (BSG)
Helo shot Boomer (BSG) (thanks, [ profile] ascendeddaniel!)
John shot Rodney, twice (Stargate Atlantis)
Vala shot Daniel (and vice versa) with a zat (Stargate SG-1)

Can anyone think of others?
