I can only assume someone recced Glass Threads somewhere, because it's received eight kudos and two comments in the last few days. Whoever you are, thank you so much! ♥ It's a cool feeling to see an old fic getting a little love again.

Hurrah, [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti! I have two fics written that will need some polishing tomorrow, but then they will be ready for betaing, so I thought I might as well ask you amazing people now. :D

The first is a Who/Holmes crossover in which the Valeyard meets Sherlock Holmes. The second is a Man from UNCLE fic in which Illya gets to play double-agent. Barring major changes tomorrow, they're going to work out to approximately 4,000 words apiece, and neither one is rated higher than PG-13.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, folks! I've screened comments so you can leave an e-mail address without fear of spambots.

(♥ to you all, by the way. Life is incredibly hectic right now - in the best possible way - and I can't wait to have more online time again.)

Not the end of the year yet, but others have been posting, and I am getting antsy. So, even if I wind up posting more fic before the New Year (which I will, since I have at least one fic that's just holding out for a beta, hurrah!), have a meme!

Hey, I did it last year, too!

And, yeah, I was a little more prolific this year. )

And how about you guys? Which fics worked for you? Which didn't? What would you like to see more of in the new year?

Because it is my day off, rambling!

1. First off, show of hands - who here gave up on House at some point? Eh? My hands are in the air, both of 'em, because while I stuck with the show until the end of season two (and I did watch season three eventually), I only had a couple moments of love for it after, oh, halfway through season one.

And this would be me, admitting that I was dead wrong to stop watching when I did.

Spoiler-free ramblings about House's season four, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Show Again. )

2. I've just started watching Due South, which is an adorable show that I have been meaning to see for a long time. I could mutter about Canadian stereotypes, but honestly? They've established that everyone north of the 49th finds him just as nutty. Hee.

(Also, heck, I've never been any further north in Canada than, uh, Peace River or possibly Grimshaw. I've never lived in a city with a population under 60,000 (and am currently living in North America's northernmost city with a metropolitan population of more than 1,000,000), so what do I know about the Yukon? Hee. Plus, cute premise, awesome characters, unexpected depths, and it's about how sometimes you really can believe the best in people and get away with it. I think I could really, really like this show. Although if nobody makes a "Dudley Do-Right" joke at some point, I will be sorely disappointed.)

Edit: Okay, joke's been made. I'm satisfied!

3. Now it's time for that meme where you post bits and pieces of your works-in-progress.

Here are some of the highlights I've been working on lately. )

Okay, that's enough of that. I'm giving too much away as it is! But yes. Fic!

4. And here's an offer I've been meaning to make, in the form of a meme, because I write lots of shortfic.

Have you ever read a fanfic that just begged to be expanded, to go beyond the hundred or thousand or ten thousand words into something more substantial? Have you ever come across an intriguing passage in a fanfic that made you want more elaboration, more detail? Well, now's your chance. Dig through my stories and let me know if there's a fic(let), an idea, a character you'd like to see expanded.

The more ideas, the better!

Am I a sucker for a mystery or am I a sucker for a mystery? I'm loving this series of Who so very much.

Was going to post at length about topics such as my bizarre and exciting job, pretty-boy spies, time-travelling aliens, and fanfiction and such, but it is nearly 3 AM, so that's probably not such a great idea at this point. Shortly, then!

In the meantime, have a meme! I stole it from [livejournal.com profile] wiccagirl24.

Ask me my opinion of any fannish topic. Show, character, storyline, meta issues, kerfuffle, you name it, I shall opine about it.

I would dearly like to opine about kerfuffle, just to say I did.

Decided to watch a Man from U.N.C.L.E. episode before bed, and have started "The Suburbia Affair", in which, as the title suggests, Illya and Napoleon get themselves a house in suburbia. So. Much. Crack. Illya vacuuming was worth a snicker, Napoleon disparaging his soufflé-making skillz got a genuine guffaw, but it's the high-speed chase in ice cream trucks that's absolutely killing me. This would probably not be half as amusing if I weren't in the midst of post-interview giddiness, but as it is I worry about waking up the whole household with my lulzing.

Yes, emerging from the depths of my term paper, I bring you another fic rec! (Clearly I have not been dividing my time between academia and fandom this late in the game. That would be silly.)

As is so often the case with my recs, I haven't had the chance to review it myself, mostly because I'm not sure I can fit everything I want to say into the little comment box at this point. But do let the author know you enjoyed it! Do as I say, not as I do, etc.

Rec: Project Pygmalion
Fandom: Man from U.N.C.L.E./My Fair Lady/Pygmalion (oh yes, you read that right)
Characters: Illya Kuryakin, Harry Beldon, Alexander Waverly, Napoleon Solo, and Gerald Strothers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] azdak
Author's Summary: A Man from U.N.C.L.E. / My Fair Lady / Pygmalion fusion. Suitable for ALL viewers! Of ANY age! And ANY sexual orientation!

Oh, this is crackfic of the highest order. It's the puppy running around in circles at the pet store, the one you just know is absolutely bonkers, but you'd love to take him home and call him your personal canon all the same. Explicit knowledge of the MUNCLE canon isn't really required, even - but the more you know, the more of the clever little in-jokes you get.

The premise? It's 1955, and Waverly has just bet Beldon he can't turn a nominee of his choice into a fully qualified UNCLE agent in three months - and train him well enough that people won't be able to tell he didn't attend the UNCLE Survival School. And Waverly picks a certain young Russian scientist working in the labs.

An excerpt! )

There are explosions, plots within plots, and musical numbers. The whole thing is equals parts witty, silly, and somehow true to character. How can you possibly go wrong?

Edit: Oh, dear. Part of my layout's background appears to have up and, well, disappeared. I wonder how long it's been doing that? Argh.
Also Edit: Fixes made it worse. Fine. Anyone have a new layout to recommend?

Saw it chez [livejournal.com profile] lizbee and could absolutely not resist. Lots of WIPs! I'll only include the WIPs I haven't posted here before. Also, I'm refraining from going into my Remix/Redux fic, for obvious reasons.

The Empty Planet (Doctor Who/Sherlock Holmes [livejournal.com profile] tardis_bigbang fic o' doom)

Adair: Even in this strange retelling, I have been murdered behind a locked door. Dag, yo.
Fitz: I do not like waistcoats.
Time War: *dishes out backstory*
Doctor: Everything's dying except me. That's nifty except for the part where it's totally not. 'Sup, Watson?
Watson: I want to believe.
Subtext: *runs rampant*
Canon: *flees for its life*

The Count of Monte Carlo (Sapphire and Steel longfic)

Random-Number Generators: *are more dangerous than they look*
Silver: Ooh, gadgets!
Steel: I am ever so thrilled to be a part of this assignment.
Everyone: *stares moodily into the distance*

Untitled [livejournal.com profile] churchontime Fic (Doctor Who)

Jo: Getting married in the Amazon actually seems like a reasonably safe alternative to Cardiff, all things considered.
Cliff: You're telling me.
Aliens: *beg to differ*
Madness: *ensues*

Untitled Man from U.N.C.L.E. Fic (Man from U.N.C.L.E.)

Napoleon and Illya: *banter*
Stuff: *blows up*
Plot: *is quite clever, really*
I: *so promised myself I'd stop taking on new projects*

And there you have it, give or take the few dozen little snippets languishing on my hard drive. In other news, I have to write 40 pages' worth of term papers by next Thursday, so I should probably. Go do that. Or something.

Characters: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor, various and sundry characters from my Other Fandoms, much loved but so oft-neglected that they have attained mythical status. Guess 'em all and you get a cookie. I'll fix the tags up at some point.
Author's Note: Part April Fools' fic, part gift to the flist for putting up with me, part flaily anticipation of series four of Doctor Who. Mostly crack.

The TARDIS is being controlled, dragged across time and space to unknown, unrelated destinations. This should come as a shock to precisely nobody. )

Because all the cool kids are doing it!

- bold the shows you watch/watched [at least 75%]
- italicise the shows you've seen at least one episode of
- post your answers.

Television lies under the cut! )

No shocking commentary! The ones I haven't so much as italicized are likely on my to-watch list. The ones I've italicized but haven't bolded are still in progress. What can I say? I'm easy.

Speaking of things that are probably not easy after all, have been playing Rachmaninoff and Schumann sonatas today, after a week of nothing but Mozart. It's incredibly disorienting! I keep wondering what happened to the recapitulation. Such wacky rebels, those Romantics.

Unexpected gratuitous Illya icon! This fandom, while replete with brilliant fic and meta, needs more graphics.

Edit: Added memeosity: Based entirely on my personality, hunt down a "played by" (an actor or actress) who you think would best represent me. Reply here with the picture or link. (This person may be male or female depending on whether *I* strike you as male or female.)

Everyone seems to be doing this, so there we go! I'm terrible with faces and so will probably not recognise people without prompting. ;) Also, do ignore the picture(s?) I've posted here.
