HTLJ and XWP icons:  1) I posted this icon in fading_coal a long time ago all by its lonesome, along with a somewhat pretentious commentary about the ways Michael Hurst--the director of "Greece is Burning"--plays with the critical cliché of the "male gaze."  If you are or were a graduate student and were exposed to the extremely-overused appearance of these two words together (or used them yourself--it's OK; we all did things we aren't proud of in order to get a good grade on a paper or an article published) and want to read what I had to say at the time about the icon, you can find it here.  Pretty please indulge me!  If only because Michael Hurst is really brilliant and I'd like to think I had something useful to say about the episode, Michael Hurst's directing skills, and his skillful wielding of H/I subtext.
