Ok everyone, I don't want to offend anyone with this question but this is something I have been wondering about ever since I saw Shelter years a go. For some reason I don't recall this particular topic ever being discussed, which is strange. Who do you think is the top and who do you think is the bottom? I know a lot of people write Shaun as the top, (with him being wiser and older and all that) but I can't help but thinking that when it really comes down to it, Zach is pretty much in control in the bedroom. However, I am also quite sure that on nights Zach is feeling particularly frisky he will take it like a champ and love it. What do you think and why?

*Waves at everyone!*

As you can tell, I am a Shelter fan! I first saw the movie 2 weeks ago and it has literally consumed every waking minute of my life. Since watching the movie, I have scoured the web for everything Shelter related including cast interviews, reviews, and premiere pictures. I have a slight obessesion with the movie, really. It's just such a great, heart-warming movie that doesn't end in tragedy. The thing is although they end up together at the end, I still feel sad because I want to see more! Thank goodness for fanfics!

Anyways, I am so happy I found this community because I am dying to discuss about the movie, read fanfics and hopefully contribute my own in the future!

Here are some questions about the movie I have. Please feel free to contribute your own thoughts!

Questions under the cut )

Do we know anything about Cody's father? I re-watched the movie but didn't hear anything other than he was dead. I need the info for a fic I am writing for the [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest. any help you can offer would be awesome.

Hi, just joined today although I've been lurking for a few weeks.  This has probably been discussed already since this movie came out a few years ago, but I just stumbled upon it this month (yay netflix!)  so in any case I was just wondering:

Is that Shaun/Gabe's house in Zach's mural?  The one that looks like it has a figure standing in a doorway?  Does anyone know more about his mural?
Just curious.

hey guys! new here. i've had the movie all along but i kept putting it off for the longest time i only watched it last week, when i seriously had nothing to do. i dunno but like everyone else here i've been sort of obsessed with it since. i've already devoured msot of the fics in this community, even. haha! i say, if only for the wealth of fanfics generated by the shelter fandom, this movie's great. the family dynamic of shaun, zach and cody (okay and gabe occasionally :P) especially makes great fanfic material.

about the novel, i ordered it from amazon too and i got an email saying the shipment will be on june 1? june 1! that's three months away T_T

i'd also like to ask if anyone else noticed that gabe is first shown trying to learn how to skate but in the latter part of the movie shaun watches this home video of gabe and zach three or four years ago, skating. is that right? i mean i love this movie to bits, but i wished there weren't stuff like this (there are others, already brought up in the community before) to spoil it. :\

Hello Everyone! I am new to both the shelter_diner community and live journal and just wanted to say hi! I have recently watched and become deeply obsessed with the movie Shelter and am so excited to find some people who seem to love it as much as I do!


 Really I could talk about it all day, but I wanted to start with a topic that has always made me wonder: What do you guys think, exactly, Shaun's first book was about? Based on Shaun and Zack's conversation in which Zack subtly lets Shaun know he knows he is gay (you all know what I'm talking about right?) I have always imagined it as a novel inspired by Shaun's growing up in the Laguna area, the drama that surrounded him and the people in his life, and being gay in an area and cultural scene where coming out of the closet could be more difficult.


This question leads me to my next topic of discussion: What do you think Shaun’s life was like when he was living in Laguna? Why does he apparently “hate it down here?” How closely do you think Shaun’s story of discovering who he truly was relates with Zack’s?


That’s all for now!

I've been wondering this for a while and can't seem to make up my mind about it, so I thought I'd post it here for a discussion.

If Jeanne hadn't gone to Portland with Alan, do you still think Zach would have gone to Cal Arts?

The fact that Cody would be left alone with Jeanne would definitely have an impact on Zach's decision to leave, but would it be enough to make him stay in San Pedro?

There's a serious lack of discussion in this comunity.

Shelter is a great movie with so many different aspects to focus on. We need to take advantage of this.

So...discussion time!
You give good BGLM. )

I've been wanting to chat about this with someone, and since no one in my real-life knows about Shelter I figured I'd bring it to you guys. Hopefully I'm not covering old ground, if I am please let me know.

I was rewatching the movie last night and I noticed that in the final epilougue type scene both Zach and Cody seem better dressed than they were throughout the film.

I've read a few fics where Shaun has money and sort of foots the bill in their new lives, and while I don't have a problem with that and even think it's kinda sweet, I assumed that canonically Zach would be too proud and maybe too insecure to be responsible for any less than his fair share.

So my question is, do you guys think Shaun paid for the new clothes or has enough time passed for Zach to be making money off of his art?

Hey all you fellow Shelter-fanatics!

Once again, I need some help figuring out some Shelter plot details.

What do we know about Jeanne and Zach's dad? )

After several years of writer's block, I'm beginning to consider writing a Zach/Shaun fanfic. I'm primarily a Jack/Ianto shipper from Torchwood; but I could never feel comfortable writing for that fandom since I don't live in the UK.

However, as I'm an American, I think I'd have a better shot with this. I do have some questions that I could not find answers for here. Does anyone know an approximate age for Zach and Shaun? From what I gathered, Zach is 19/20, and Shaun is 30?

And how many of you agree that Shaun's first book was m/m romance, and included characters inspired by himself and Zach, with the "names changed" and that Zach recognized this?

Does anyone actually think Jeanne would come back for Cody?

Not really a meta, just a quick observation:

While I adore and love every moment of the movie, I won't get into how many times I've watched it *coughover40cough* or rewound certain parts *coughthemontagecough* I would have LOVED to have seen this part in the movie..

Cut for a big pic to save your flist page )

Seriously, there isn't even a word to describe how much I love this movie.

I usually just post the meta here-I never do a link unless it's a fic, but in this brief window that the server here is working, I'm making it a link instead, once they finish working on the server I'll go back to just posting here, but seeing as I've tried three times to post the meta here and have failed, it's much easier to just post it in my journal, I'd hate for all of them to show up and then the community is spammed with the same entry over and over..my own journal, It's okay, a community, not so much.

So without further adieu...more meta

It's more about what Zach HEARS...it can be found HERE-what Zach hears

I promise to get back to my every other day metaing I swear..but a good question was raised yesterday, something I've been thinking about myself..along with a host of other questions becuase this movie is just so good it gets you to thinking about their future and such..

this one is about Shaun saying he was broke, now for me and few others, Shaun being broke--we feel is a lot different than Zach being broke, Barcelona may just be a frivolous expense for him, but he can still afford that apartment and it was big enough for Zach (at least, he didn't know that Cody would be coming as well) to move into, and he doesn't work full time..now, here's the question...do you think that Zach would get a job once he goes to Cal Arts? He seems like he wouldn't want to have Shaun pay for everything and especially with Cody there too, he'd want to contribute, would he use the money he told Shaun he was saving to get his own place? Would Shaun want him to work though, or would he try to tell him to focus on school at the moment and let someone else take care of things for once? But then again, Zach is independent, I'm sure he'd feel bad asking for money even from Shaun all the time...but Shaun isn't Jeannie, and I don't even mean that he's in a better place financially either, I mean that he really wants Zach to succeed and would he think that he should just focus on that and he'll pick up the slack for them while he attends Cal Arts..but I still get the feeling Zach would work at the very least part time to contribute and to be able to buy things, don't you?

Tomorrow I'll do one with visuals again.

Ok, i know i'm making like a gazillion post's. I don't care.

So, i'm watching the break up scene in the car, and i so feel for Shaun and mostly for Zach and his conflicting feelings. Especially when Zach says "Don't go all faggy emotional on me ok?", and he's the one crying. Uh. It just breaks my heart for a minute.

Also, anyone else notice how Jeanne is always trying to get Zach a new job? Like she's trying to keep him in San Pedro with her, when shes the one who ends up leaving the most behind.

OK, i'm done, just had to vent for a sec.

I posted about this last night, and it made [livejournal.com profile] true_enough happy, so I'm posting it here too...

We know about the shirt of Shaun's that he wears...but there's another one..actually, they seem to share a few things:

I've talked about the board shorts before, but here is the proof...

Zach's board shorts..
It's the shorts.. )

And this all was probably totally unintentional, but I love it anyway...

You really have to look and watch that scene closely, it's actually hard to get a clear cap of it, but you can still see..
Notice Shaun's shirt during the walkie-talkie dvd watching scene.. )

It's the sharing of the clothes, it just makes me smile. *sigh*
