I have a question. Recently I've developed a sign language kink (yes, odd, I know.) See, I just want to see a fic in which someone learns sign language to help Gris out with his hearing loss. Or, y'know, just as a sign of support for him. Or maybe already knows it. Something like that. It doesn't have to be used in sex or anything; I'd just like to see it used *at all*.

So. Does anyone know of any fics (preferable Gil/Greg) that might have this in them? And if you don't, does anyone wanna write me one? *makes puppy eyes* Pwease?

Um, maybe I'll have a go?

In the meantime, there are some great American Sign Language sites on the Web. (A very talented Sentinel writer named Brook is writing an enchanting deaf-blind Jim story in her Yahoo group, so I'm very much into ASL right now myself.) Go here for a site with animated fingerspelling tutorials and here for an ASL dictionary that also has animation showing how the signs are made.

I'll contemplate on the story and see what the bunnies have to say.

As soon as I hit "post comment" this question arose: Who among the team notices Gil's deafness first in the show? Is it Catherine, or am I confusing a fic with canon?
23rd-Apr-2005 02:19 am (UTC)
Well, technically, Al Robbins is the first one to find out, since Gil goes to him to get a doctor's second opinion on the condition, but yes, Catherine is the first to actually figure it out. In fact, she's the only one who ever *does* know.

Love your icon, BTW.

Thanks--for the info and the compliment!

It was the ep with the bank robbery and Cyrus the cop who got shot. Catherine asks Grissom if he can hear her.

What season is this, do you know? Fourth?

Inside the Box - Season three

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, LaurelGardner's fantastic series "Of Life and Living" has Greg learning ASL for Gil. Correct me somebody if I got that wrong, *grin*.

Just wanted to say I love your icon! That was a cute scene in the ep with Greg checking out his muscles.

Thank you but all compliments go to Artistic_Sillie. Lovely icons she makes!

Thanks for the compliment :-)

Greg does know a little ASL in that fic, but he didn't learn it for Gil; he took two semesters in college after pissing off his Spanish teacher before he'd fulfilled his language requirement.

Convenient, I know...

Speaking of which, I've gotta go read that again! It was such a good fic, I miss it. :)
24th-Apr-2005 07:57 pm (UTC)
Where do I find this--and the rest of your fic? (Have googled to no avail...)
23rd-Apr-2005 04:04 am (UTC)
*cough* Erm. There are some issues with that for the next fic we've got. "Salt Water" follows "Still Waters Run Deep" we just. Uh. Suck. And got caught up in something else. Which tends to happen with us #^_^# There's ASL in the next one, too, but it's AU and the reasons are, um, complicated.

blah blah blah goes the tizzy...
23rd-Apr-2005 04:21 am (UTC)
Oh pretty please tell me the "got caught up in something else" is the bunny that was tossed around in the shameless fantasy post. Please.

I'll provide chocolate or something.
23rd-Apr-2005 04:23 am (UTC)
*cough* Yeah. That would be the one. *cough*

You've got a story following "Still Waters"?


You two are so going to kill me with happiness, but what a helluva way to go!

Well, I remember this one Greg/Gil story, in it Gil is visited by a woman. They talk in sign language and Greg, who already knows it a bit, watches their conversation through the office window. The woman tells Gil that he is the only man she ever loved which leads Greg to believe that she is Gil's lover but in reality she is his mothers widow. When Greg enters the office she also asks Gil if Greg is the one and starts teasing Gil with his attraction for Greg. I'm not sure if it is pre-slash or if they start a relationship in the story. Sadly I also don't know the title or the author, but perhaps somebody knows this ???

That was mine, "Of Life and Living," and you read it here - it's in the "memories" section.

24th-Apr-2005 07:59 pm (UTC)
OK, scratch my previous question. Duh.

I thought this one was cute.
