Notes: Thanks to fox1013 for encouragement and audiencing on her own birthday present, and to annavtree for the quick beta. Written for undermistletoe 2008, for which my prompt was fanfic clichés. The dominant cliché here is We're Not Gay, We Just Love Each Other, although there are healthy doses of Stranded Alone Together, They Confront Their Feelings; Pretending To Be Gay; and Magical Healing Powers Of Buttsex. Also, the reality TV clichés of Showmance and Famewhoring.
[ For the first three days, Ponderosa is the Fortress of Solitude. ]
