I briefly scanned the episode titles as I was ordering and I loved that some of the bit characters are Dickens characters. I see what you mean about it being Dickens fanfic. I love Dickens! Aaaah, I can't wait until the 21st! (that's when Amazon says the dvd will arrive)

I think you would LOVE the Psmith books and the Psmith/Mike ship. They have the same adorably devoted BFF vibe as Pythagoras/Icarus, where one is super clever while the other is an endearing everyman who gets shit done and lovingfully shakes his head at the other one's eccentricity. And it's literally the same exact same setting(s) as David Blaize -- Edwardian era, amazing first day of school meet-cute, boarding school roommates, visiting each other during holidays, going to Cambridge, ignoring that WWI is a thing that exists...). The main differences are that the slash isn't canonical, and the whole tone of it is lighter (obviously, since PG Wodehouse wrote it), so there's no caning or self-flaggelation or any of the angst from Frank/David (which I adore, too, don't get me wrong). No gratuitous swimming either (though there is a scene where Psmith watches Mike change?). However, there's a lot more secretly self-sacrificing loyalty kink! They're pretty much my favorite thing. The link to where you can read the first two books is in my letter. :D
