DUDE. SOMEBODY REC'D MY HOUSE/XF CROSSOVER FIC AT [livejournal.com profile] crack_van. LIKE, TO OTHER PEOPLE. WITHOUT ME HAVING TO PAY THEM TO DO IT.

HAVE EGO, WILL TRAVEL.
katernater: (xf (msr) // Like an old married couple)
Everyone in the house is grumpy today (except for me, but only by virtue of sleeping through it until three o'clock in the afternoon) so I'm holing up in my room with The X-Files, a chenille blanket, and a couple dozen cans of frosty Diet Coke. Hopefully the malaise will pass by the time I get motivated enough to go to the gym. WHICH Todd bought me a membership for -- 'stuck me on his plan like a right gentleman. The place is maybe a five minute walk from my front door and I'll have access to a room full of cardio equipment, a sauna, a track (which is awesome, because running outside when it's 35 degrees and icy is not something I'm eager to try), and a couple of racquetball courts. Todd and I are already planning Racquetball Smackdown 2008. I stand to win a great deal of money.

"Beowulf" in 3D was entertaining. I was happy with the plot of the first half, but then my brain shut down because of the deviations in the second, and I spent a lot of that time falling back on the pretty 3D-ness of it instead. I loved that Grendel (Crispin Glover FTW!) spoke in Old English and that I actually had to work to understand it. The animation was spectacular, though I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much in the 2D format.

Afterward, Todd and I went to play pool and I was happy to discover that I didn't suck at it. I try to avoid games like that (pool, bowling, skeet shooting, geese juggling) because I have absolutely no eye/hand coordination outside of Donkey Kong. But I loosened up and actually started making shots (I sunk the eight ball for the win just as "You Can't Always Get What You Want" came on the jukebox, you guys) and won a couple of interesting wagers with Todd. He won some, too, but we both agreed that I came out ahead.

I still owe a whole bunch of people drabbles for my 2,000th Postiversary. I promise they're coming. I had to resign my [livejournal.com profile] house_fest claim for November because there's no way I can get that thing turned out by the end of the month with my GRE and holiday schedule. I plan on picking it up for December, though, and I'll have some vacation time at the end of the month that I can devote to writing it (field work, field work, field work!)

All right. Back to more 'Files and family avoiding.
katernater: (stacy // How are you so dumb?)
As a writer myself, I have to say that I'm completely in support of the writers' strike. I believe that all artists -- whether or not their medium is music, paint, or the printed word -- deserve to be recognized for their efforts and deserve to have those efforts rewarded.

That being said, I just looked at the strike list, scrolled down to the House entry, and saw that David Shore was the only writer listed. What the fuck, David Shore? How many episodes did you write last year? One? Maybe? I'm sorry. You don't need any more money. Pawn the Emmy you won for "Three Stories" if you're strapped for cash.

[eta]
Okay, so David Shore is the "showrunner", who speaks for all of the writers on the set. I get that. Still. Couldn't they have picked someone a little better? I'm a Doris Egan fangirl. DORIS. CALL ME -- WE'LL FIGHT THE POWER TOGETHER.

TITLE: The Formation Of A Peacock’s Tail
AUTHOR: [livejournal.com profile] katernater
PAIRING: Gen (hints of House/Cuddy, Mulder/Scully)
RATING: PG

SUMMARY: Response to [livejournal.com profile] cuddy_fest prompt #289: House/X-Files crossover. Mulder is brought into PPTH for treatment, and Cuddy and Scully discuss the troubled geniuses in their lives.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The title is taken from the body of a letter written by Charles Darwin to A.R. Wallace in June, 1864: ”…It is an awful stretcher to believe that a peacock’s tail was thus formed; but, believing it, I believe in the same principle somewhat modified applied to man.”

OH MY GOD. I ACTUALLY STARTED WRITING DIALOGUE FOR MY CUDDY_FEST PROMPT AND IT. DOESN'T. SUCK.

I might actually just have the entire opening set-up as dialogue only; on average, I tend to get wrapped up in actions and adjectives and lose sight of word interaction, which is sometimes the most fun (and the most difficult) thing to write.

What is today, the fifth? Five days. I'm feeling good about this.
katernater: (tbc // This is some sweet action)
So the deadline for [livejournal.com profile] cuddy_fest has been extended to September 10th.

Which means that I can go watch "The Big Chill" right now and not feel guilty about it.

Although... )

I could never write a novel.
katernater: (fiesty // 'Better Scotchgard that couch)
Sweet lord. When Lil tells me that I can go ahead and write the introductory thread for an RP post for our [livejournal.com profile] canonwars Cuddy and House? She should be aware that she's unleashing all the hounds and all the oliphaunts in Christendom. Because I will totally lapse into a fugue state for a half an hour and come up with something much longer -- and more adjective-happy -- than I had originally planned on writing. I'm posting it here because, yeah. I can.

A missing scene from 'Meaning' that we're going to play out )

'Feel like I need to have a cigarette and tip somebody after that.

My writing is completely driven by my ego. And my ego is completely driven by my writing. Fhew.

Also. New layout. [livejournal.com profile] katernater [livejournal.com profile] katernater [livejournal.com profile] katernater.
