On behalf of someone who must remain anonymous for the time being, I have a fanfic-related question for those who know the San Francisco area. In the words of anon:

"I need a good place for [character] to drive to at the end of the story. I want it to be kind of romantic, like a spot overlooking the water, but not automatically a "going to make out here" place. I'm thinking Telegraph Hill might work, but I'm open to better/more appropriate suggestions. Time would be evening."

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

In return, I bring you a fannish edition of "things overheard in my apartment," all courtesy of The Boy.

* "This show is made by slashers. I'm not saying that in a bad way, it just--really is."

-The Boy, after I made him watch what were admittedly Merlin/Arthur vids, but he's never actually seen the show with, y'know, dialogue. It's funny 'cause it's true.

* "Okay, I think Hodges is writing Hodges/Grissom slash."

-The Boy, while watching last week's CSI, when after Grissom's announced he's leaving, at some point he says he needs to talk to Hodges in the hallway, and Hodges says "it's a little too late for that" in a voice of MASSIVE pissy hurt, and Grissom's just looking at him like, um, okay, wtf.

Again, it's funny 'cause he's not wrong.

* "He's not that tall, he's only 5'8", but at 180 pounds, he's thick. It's amazing he can generate that much speed with those hips."

-The Boy, quoting something off the TV to me. I think that one's funnier if I don't specify the context. *g*

The parking lot at Fort Miley (the Department of Veteran's Affairs) is pretty, and you can see both the Golden Gate Bridge (to the right) and the ocean (to the left), plus Marin in front of you. But since I don't drive and I especially don't drive to romantic spots overlooking the water, someone else might have a better suggestion. Also, it's not that easy to get to from Downtown or anything.

Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coit_Tower) has a lovely view.

Oh god, I am way behind on CSI right now, but even I kind of have to say "...yeah, I think so too" to that second quote. HEEE.

"Okay, I think Hodges is writing Hodges/Grissom slash."

Hahaha! I thought that poor Hodges was acting the spurned lover, as well. He's got such a mancrush on Gil. *g*

I asked a friend who lives in that area. She said, "Coit Tower/ Telegraph Hill is very pretty. There is also The Cliffhouse area or The Palace of Fine Arts . Hope that helps

If I remember rightly, the Legion of Honor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Palace_of_the_Legion_of_Honor) might fit the bill.
