Atlantis art - Hercules and Pythagoras wallpapers


While Jason may have cornered the market in action heroics and shirtlesness, one of the best things about the first series of Atlantis has been the Hercules/Pythagoras comedy double act. Not even in a slashy way, necessarily, but they're just so... well, they're like an old married couple. They spend most of their time bickering, arguing, being sarcastic at each other... but you just know that at heart, neither one of them would want to live without the other. They're basically married in all but name.

So, in the spirit of their epic old married coupleness, what better to fill the 'chosen family' trope bingo square than a selection of wallpapers of the boys and their adorable relationship.




Hercules and Pythagoras.They are *so* married.

(And a black and white version because I was experimenting and couldn't decide which one was the best.)

On the theme of hugs and comfort...

And on the theme of random moments...

(Okay, so I was originally only intending to make one wallpaper, but I ended up with so many screencaps and I really, really wanted to use so many of them, so this happened. And I *still* didn't use all of the caps...)

I've only seen one episode of Atlantis - the last one - but I love those wallpapers :-)

Thanks! I enjoyed making these, even if the third one didn't do quite what I'd intended.

I think you might like Atlantis. You enjoyed Merlin, and you can very much tell it's made by the same people. I have to admit series 1 has been a little patchy; some really good episodes, and some not so good ones, and a little too much reliance on slapstick humour (occasionally at rather inappropriate times) rather than letting the more serious stories stand on their own merits. But the chemistry between the three leads and the banter between them has been great, and that by itself has saved some of the more dodgy episodes, I think.

I think it's safe to say I've become fannish about this show in a way that I haven't been about anything since Primeval. I hadn't realised how much I missed the excitement and enthusiasm of a shiny new fandom until I started writing Atlantis fic!

Sorry, that just turned into a complete random ramble. :-)

I'll admit, I did enjoy the ep I watched (my brother's a fan, so he wanted to see the finale). I might give it a try it next year.

I do miss the excitement of shiny fandom newness, which was so much fun in Primeval. It's never easy to sustain the same level of enthusiasm for a closed fandom as an on-going one where there's lots of new canon coming along to play with.

I like your new header, BTW. Very stylish! So much pretty!

It's odd sometimes which shows you fall for completely. I love Merlin and Doctor Who, but apart from writing a couple of isolated fics, and reading fics that catch my eye I haven't got into the fandom in the same way as I did for Primeval. Even with Primeval it took until episode 5 (pterandodon) before I started writing fic. With Atlantis it was about episode 2!

And, of course, despite the obvious pretty of Jason, which do you think is my fave character? Yep, the funny looking, gangly geek Pythagoras *haz predictable taste in men* ;-)

I made the new header a few weeks ago. It's been a Primeval-centric (and frequently just Connor) header for the last several years, but now that I'm dabbling in so many fandoms I decided it was time to go for a multi-fandom look instead.

Nowt wrong wi' that! :-D

I sometimes wish I could be multi-fannish but I just don't seem to have that sort of brain. I sometimes read B7 fic, and am still fond of the characters, but that's about it, and I love Who, but I don't get any urge to write anything but Primeval.

I do adore the boys! These are stunning and capture them both so well *hugs* Great job!

Thanks! I really enjoyed making these, the boys are just adorable, and there are so many good scenes to choose from for screencaps.

Aw, so sweet!! I love the hugs one!
These boys are perfect :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 30th, 2013 09:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks! The hugs one was fun, and there were so many other screencaps I *could* have used, but didn't have room to include. Same with the random moments, lol!

I still need an icon with all three boys and/or one with Hercules on it...

Wow! You made some beautiful wallpapers.

I loved the way Hercules said in his own clumsy way that he cared about Pythagoras.
In total the series has a lot of flaws IMO (but like Primeval it's primarily a kids show). The actors did a good job, though, at playing the characters. I particularly loved Sarah Paris is Pasiphae.

Thanks! I really just wanted to capture some of the best moments between them, although it's easier said than done, because a lot of the most revealing things about their friendship is in the dialogue rather than visual.

The boys are just adorable in their own clumsy, awkward way with each other. They'll never admit how much they care, but it's there underlying their relationship all the time.

At last!

There's really not enough focus on these two and their beautiful friendship (or even possible romance ;D) online - a lot of it is Pythagorus/Jason. These wallpapers are so lovely. Thank you! It's a relief knowing I'm not the only one.

Re: At last!

Thanks! And I agree, I adore these two, they're just such fun together. Much as I love Jason/Pythagoras I wish there was more Hercules/Pythagoras out there.

Blatant self-pimping here, but if you like Herc/Py, have you read my fics A Million Little Things, and 3.17 a.m.? The first one is my headcanon for how Hercules and Pythagoras met, and the backstory of their lives before Jason arrived, and the other one is a modern AU H/P slash.

Oh, and this is my favourite H/P slash fic over on AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/works/985159
