attn: hey all! i'm new to this comm and i love the idea of the_boyos. i wanted rec some slash stories with ioan and mattie, but i don't know if this is a slash-friendly comm. please let me know if you'd like me to delete this post, cos i will be more than willing to do so if it offends. thanks!!

i've been lucky enough to stumble across TWO great fics feautring ioan gruffudd & matthew rhys.

i can't even begin to explain how much I love this pairing. i've followed their carrers since jr. high and they hold a special 'lil place in me heart. if there were a fandom (let alone more than two fics that I knew of surrounding these two) this pairing would be an OTP for me.

anyway here are the fics:

both these authors are very talented in their own right. in these iaon/matthew stories, they draw thin, bittersweet lines between friends and lovers and are able to weave the welsh language and expression into the writting fluidly. i'm so impressed. i encourage anyone to read these fics, despite the obscurity of the pairing, and also to search the authors' archives if you haven't already.

For those in Canada, and lucky enough to have BBC Canada, be sure to catch 'Man and Boy' tonight at 9.

I was flipping through the TV Guide and found it.
sigh Wish I could see it!

According to the Western Mail (4/18/04), both Matthew Rhys and Ioan will be posing in a charity calendar supporting Autism Cymru. Quote from the article (not from Ioan):

LIFT OFF FOR HOT DATES
On Thursday I'm taking my kit off a la Calendar Girls. But it's not only girls in this one. Hunky men too, like Ioan Gruffudd and Matthew Rhys, Johnathan Davies, Brynmor Willams and Iolo Williams. This will be a calendar to raise much-needed funds for Autism Cymru, a charity which raises money to promote the establishment of high-quality services for autistic people in Wales. Well, if someone thinks my forty-something body is worth seeing, albeit in subtle darkness, 'black-and-white moody' being the professional description, who am I to refuse! "(Angharad Mair)"
