It had been so long since I'd written anything that I was really thrilled to participate in this year's Remix event on AO3. Basically, you offer to let other people rewrite one of your stories and get matched with someone willing to write in your fandoms, and vice versa. Right now the authors are being concealed, so I can't tell you what I wrote for a few more days, but I would like to point you towards a couple of fics that were written for me (i.e., inspired by my stories) and also a couple that were just so awesome that I have to tell you about them.

Cloudy, With Hope for the Future (Hungry: The Post-Miracle Remix) - a continuation of my Buffy/Faith Hungry series

Can't Take My Eyes Off of You (the Taylor Swift in Red remix) - a Cameron-centric remix of my House/Wilson fic Can't Take My Eyes Off of You

Like No Business I Know (the Climbing Uphill Remix) - a wonderful Tawny Madison-centric Galaxy Quest one-shot

Just Can’t Kill the Beast (the Green, Green, My Jealous Heart Remix) - a Faith-centric Buffy the Vampire Slayer one-shot


Fic meme!

Ganked this from [ profile] footballslash. It's supposed to reflect football slash fics written this year, but I'm a gonna list fics I wrote in any fandom, any year, and you should feel free to do the same.

Three of my Buffy the Vampire Slayer fics from 2001 - Safe Sex, the Hungry series, and Beloved - have been nominated for Round 25 of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards.

Better late than never, I guess.

As with The X-Files, I am basically reccing my favorite fics from the period which I consider to have been the heyday of the fandom. As always, additional recs are welcome in the comments!

Bring it on )

Rec me!

No, I don't mean "rec my stuff" (although of course I'd be thrilled if you did). I'm requesting your recs for fic, art, and vids for my various fandoms. I think that I've got a pretty good handle on House M.D. at this point, so while I would welcome little-known favorites from that fandom, I am eagerly seeking recs - even the most apparently obvious ones - from Battlestar Galactica (new), Bones, Buffy/Angel, Castle, Firefly, Sherlock BBCStar Trek (classic or reboot), The Big Bang Theory, The West Wing, and The X-Files.

This is an ongoing request - I am putting a personal favorites recs list together to be regularly updated. You can probably guess what I'd like based on what I write and/or have recced in the past. Funny, angsty, hot, and most importantly, evocative of the show in question. Gen or any pairings as long as it's really well-crafted and in-character. Thanks so much for any pointers!

My RL beta and I were chatting about House recently and came up with a theory about why our favorite shows eventually went downhill. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The West Wing, and now House all started out strong by exploring the balance and conflicting demands of life and work, whether that was battling the forces of darkness, working 24/7 to push a political agenda, or attempting to diagnose the patients that no one else could save. Towards the end, though, that balance was lost. Life became wholly consumed by work, or vice versa. As a result, something essential was sacrificed - the friendships, the complex political issues, the medicine.

In my opinion, Buffy only suffered one bad season (its last). I'm really starting to hope that the same is true for House. What I don't want to see is years of staggering on stubbornly despite dismal ratings as one key actor after another deserts a sinking ship (*cough* The X-Files *cough*).

I've been catching up on the second season of Castle, and I just saw an episode that featured Marc Blucas (Riley Finn on Buffy) and Anne Dudek (Amber!!!!) as a divorced couple about to get a second chance at making things work because Marc's character has lost his memory and with it the fifteen years of emotional baggage they'd accumulated. Aside from eliciting a squee of recognition, this made me think of the Buffy episode "Tabula Rasa" and the interesting dynamics that occur when the regulars all find themselves in a room together with no memories of their established relationships.

So now I'm thinking that, in addition to "House M.D. the Musical," I'd enjoy seeing a similar exploration of the effects of amnesia on our favorite show, and particularly with regard to House himself. Who would he be if he still had his brilliance and musical/linguistic talents and eidetic memory, but he couldn't remember his childhood or the infarction or his previous interactions with his colleagues? Any thoughts? Has anyone read a really good fanfictional take on this?
