Intro post

Hi! I just thought it would be nice to have a general 'noticeboard' post at the top of my journal, but right now I can't think of anything particularly interesting to say. Isn't that always the way?

If you're looking for my fic/vids, the links are at the side of the page and/or in my memories. I've written a lot of fic in various fandoms, but the things that I've done that seem to have been most popular to date are both vids - namely Brokeback Hospital (House MD, House/Wilson) and Cat's in the Cradle (House MD, Sherlock, Fortysomething). The vid I wished more people watched is Last Day of Your Life (Third Star, Miles/James), just because I adore the movie and that particular relationship.

I attended Oz Comic Con 2014, and have had my picture taken with the 'batch, but it was a weird thing for me to do and I'm still conflicted about it. I have issues *g*. My transcription of his (Sunday) talk may be found on tumblr here.

I generally love chatting to people on lj - feel free to drop me a comment if you think we have interests in common :)

26 May 2012 - After five years, I thought I might actually try HAVING a tagging system. Update (slowly) in progress. My memories are still the best index, for now. I'm now also on AO3.

Shows I'm currently fannish about: Sherlock, Cabin Pressure

Also currently fangirling: Benedict Cumberbatch, JJ Feild, Mark Gatiss, Chris Barrie, Philip Quast

Shows I watch regularly but not fannishly: Almost Human, Drop Dead Diva, Elementary, Hannibal, Hawaii 5-0, Luther, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Celebrity Apprentice.

Gone, but not forgotten:
Angel
Ashes to Ashes
Blackadder
Boot Camp
Buffy, the Vampire Slayer

Dexter
Dollhouse
Firefly

House
Life on Mars
Monk
Press Gang
Red Dwarf
Shark
Six Feet Under
Star Trek: TOS
West Wing, The
X-Files, The

I'm in the process of acquiring Season 1 of Boston Legal. Have you ever watched that? And how about Due South?

No! Although I did watch LA Law and The Practice and Ally McBeal shutup so if it's in his usual style it's probably the kind of thing I'd enjoy. I just don't need a new obsession right now, LOL. Haven't ever seen Due South either, but it does seem to have the disturbing ability to turn relatively normal people into stark raving fangirls XD

and Ally McBeal shutup

Ooh, I *loved* Ally McBeal :) I've sometimes thought about trying to get hold of it.

I've read so many apparently sane people obsessing over Due South that I feel sure I'm missing out there. Hmmm....

Tell me about this hiatus of yours from House. I recently started watching it again after about a year off. Stopping was a big deal for me, because I'm really a one-show kind of girl, but the Tritter bullshit was just too much for me (well, more specifically, Wilson finding House after his OD and just leaving him there to choke on his own vomit was what was really too much for me). It's kind of nice to be back.

I didn't mean I was on hiatus; I meant the show was. Hmmm, perhaps I do need to make that clearer :)

I loved the Tritter arc, but that's me (I saw Wilson's actions as more of a tough love thing than anything else). This season I haven't been as keen on, with all the cast changes and stuff, but the last two eps and the whole Amber storyline were brilliant, so I'll be back next season! It's lovely to see you back, too - I thought that you'd just been overtaken by RL events rather than opting out of watching House.

How do you do it? Watch so many shows?
I can barely keep up with House, Dexter and Californcation.
I look forward to the summer when I can take a break.

Shows I wish I could remember to watch are 30 Rock, Boston Legal and Touchwood.

Gone, but not forgotten, agrees with Blackadder, Firfly, Red Dwarf, SFU, ST and XF. Also misses MASH.

LOL, they're not all on at the same time - the reality shows are usually on two by two, and Australian hiatus is at a completely different time of year to the US. The UK shows/US cable shows are much shorter runs than the US commercial ones.

Also, I literally don't watch any other regular incidental TV - news, game shows, etc. I estimate I watch 3-9 hours a week total, which is probably less than a lot of people :)

ETA: Not to mention nowadays you can 'schedule' shows to watch when it's convenient, if you know what I mean ;)

OH- so it works out that when one ends one begins.
That is cool!

I don't watch any of that stuff either. I'd rather not be informed by what the RL world is doing to muck it all up.

If anything I watch the History & Discovery channel the most.

My Tivo helps me catch up. I just season pass Monty Python's Flying Circus. Haven't seen that since I was a kid, can't wait.

I just don't have time to dl TV shows or watch them online.

Hey! It's the series finale of Boston Legal tonight. 5 lovely series: almost complete! You should definitely take a look.

*excited*

Hee, I've got one episode just waiting for me to watch it, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm guessing there'll be time over the 'silly season' though. Hope you enjoy it! ;)

Too bad they are not showing Chaser's War anymore.
Guess that stunt they pulled during APEC was a bit out of the line. (Personally i found that stunt hilarious)

Are you going to be watching the Choose Your Own Adventure thing? I know the guy's not actually a Chaser, but he's kind of affiliated, and it sounds fun :)

Edit: LOL, not Chase, CHASER. Bloody icons XD

De-lurking to ask what happened to your gorgeous RSL header. I was disappointed not to see it but shall continue to enjoy your writing in any case. :D

LOL, I'm glad someone approved of it, anyway! I just thought it was time for a change, and it was getting very cold around here, so. And thanks ;)

Hey!

Just thought I'd say hello and tell you that I've added you. I've poddled across from cbarriepictures (about time I had a looksy at what's been happening over there) and thought that I would add you.

Anywhoooo ...

Wooohooo.

:)

Have a good day!

LOL, icon. Love the comm (obviously) and hi! Have added you too, although I must warn you I haven't had a lot to say recently. Still adoring the Barrie though XD

Fangirl love! The Barrie loves it all.

I'm not very fandom-eee on my posts these days though that might change. A little bit boring these days. Still! Doesn't matter!!!

There is always Barrie <3

I'm in the process of reading some of your "old" fics. I'm a bit of a monomaniac in that all the TV I ever watch is House (which recently is a very sad activity). On the other hand, I have tons of DVDs.
I hope you don't mind that I friended you. I sometimes write ridiculously long comments on old fics, so warn me if this would bother you.

Hi, lovely to have you - I'm amazed you can be so focused on one TV show, that's loyalty! And I'm very pleased you're reading my fics, and I suspect most people love comments on their fics, old or new, so do feel free *g*

I shall friend you back, although I do warn you that I'm not even watching House nowadays. I will definitely catch up on the eps at some stage, but I'm not actively watching. Still very fond of HL and RSL though.

No loyalty - I just don't actually have a TV (in fact, I got one yesterday, but it's only connected to a DVD player, not an antenna or a cable network).

Avoid House Season 7 like the plague. Maybe you could occasionally watch one of the old eps (I'm the kind of person who can read the same book twenty times) and write us another wonderful fic.

Happy Easter! [No assumption is made about your religious view, but I hope you're not allergic to chocolate, which is what Easter in my country os mostly about]

Although I've heard the dismal reviews of S7 I have already sworn to stick with House until the bitter, bitter end, so I will have to get through it eventually! At least RSL is looking pretty good, iirc.

Hee, cute icon! And the same to you.

A fellow Cumberbatch-fan. I knew your name looked familiar as I have read fic by you.

Oooh, hello! I believe I've seen you around at drinkingcocoa's. Lovely to meet you and of course have friended you! I warn you that I'm often not terribly coherent, especially... right now XD

Hello! I came over because IndyBaggins talked about you and asked if we were friends and looked so sad when I said no. (I went on to explain that it wasn't that we had had a fight or something, but that we just didn't really know each other.) So I figured I would come and say hi! :)

Sherlock definitely a passion of mine. But also a fan of Doctor Who, Buffy, Angel, X files, Star Trek, Charmed, and a few others,
