Come on over to [livejournal.com profile] housemd_what_if to learn more about me and ask me anything that's been on your mind about me/my writing... and while you're there, check out their extensive rec list of what-iffy speculative House fics!

Not too long ago, [livejournal.com profile] daasgrrl hosted an interesting post about the writing process for long fics. By chance, I just stumbled upon the outline of Precautionary Measures that I had emailed to my beta. Written scenes are in regular typeface and unwritten scenes are in italics. As is typical for me, the end was finished long before the beginning!

...and I am pleased as punch to announce that two of my stories have remixes that are now available for your reading pleasure!

A Proxy in the Mirror (Remix of Proxy) by anonymous
House M.D.
"Chase won't write House a scrip for Vicodin, but he can help the pain. A dark AU set during the Tritter arc."

and

clarity (the fight or flight remix) by anonymous
House M.D.
"Mid-season 7 (post 7x12, to be exact). House wants Wilson to get laid. As usual, there is a reason why. Unfortunately, it's not at all what Wilson wants to hear, or what House wants to tell him."

I have also written two stories, one for Remix Redux 11 and one for Remix Madness. The first was for a fandom in which I'd written many fics before, but the other was for a fandom in which I'd never written anything. (If you think that you can guess which stories are mine, PM me and I'll confirm or deny!)

I actually wrote my Remix Redux 11 fic and turned it in early (thanks [livejournal.com profile] jezziejay!), but the stories won't be revealed until Sunday. By coincidence(?), that is also the deadline for Remix Madness, a free-for-all in which you can remix any story from any fandom not forbidden by the requesting author. Here's a link to my sign-up page in case any of you are interested in remixing one of my fics!

Thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] jezziejay, I heard about this and signed up to write fic for $$.

You can volunteer your writing time too! (Or bid on my fic. Hee.)

This post from [livejournal.com profile] lz1982 spurred me to watch Colin Firth in A Single Man, which has been languishing on my Netflix pile for well over a week. It's so perfect for a poignant House/Wilson fic, I'm astonished that no one seems to have written one already. I started tonight and hope to have it done by this weekend.

Finished!

Just completed the final chapter of "Three Months" and sent it over to my RL beta reader who, as luck would have it, is out of town this weekend. I've applied to join the housefic beta group, so hopefully I'll hear something from them soon. I know that additions and/or rearrangements could probably still improve this story significantly, but I'm quite happy with all the bits I've actually written. Now to sleep, perchance to dream.

"Three Months" is a monster, and I'm one of the slowest typists I know. But the first two chapters are basically done, and the third is mapped out and largely drafted. It's the blackest humor I've ever written, and I totally get now why David Shore and co. enjoy scripting House so much.

Anyone want to recommend a good beta reader?

Bold any reasons that apply to you, strike out any that don't (if you feel like it), and add three reasons of your own to the bottom.

1. To explore themes that I don't get to see in mass media using characters I love.
2. Because it's fun.
3. Because mass media does a crappy job of representing my race and sexual orientation.
4. Because I can get more people aboard my ship writing a story than a manifesto.
5. Because TV science-fiction doesn't explore its science-fiction premises in enough depth.
6. Because it's a gift I can give a stranger and know they will enjoy it.
7. Because I resonate emotionally with the characters what I read and watch, and want to find out why by writing about it.
8. Because every tale is a universe, often with fascinating nooks and crannies that the original author never explored.
9. Because I've made some of my best and dearest friends through this very wacky hobby.
10. Because the world the creator made is vast, and I want to see more of it.
11. Because writing as a communal experience is amazing.
12. Because I can.
13. Because I get so much enjoyment from reading fan fiction that I want to contribute to the community by providing enjoyment for other fans.
14. When I become interested in particular actors and/or characters, sometimes I want to explore them in different contexts than their canons would ever allow.
15. I enjoy writing but I feel ambivalent about trying to get published; writing fan fiction frees me by removing the pressure to sell from consideration.
16. Because of 'tribbers copies (I didn't have a lot of money so I contributed drawings and stories to zines I wanted free copies of.)
17. Because I have a talent for writing humor, even for not-very-humorous shows, and I love it when people laugh.
18. Because I was once part of a fun fannish clique of talented women who encouraged me to write, talked story with me, and applauded what I wrote.
19. Because my ship will never be canon, no matter how much I might like it to be, and therefore if I want to see it I'll just have to write it myself.
20. Because the writers are not going to devote a chapter or an episode or an entire movie scene to my favorite character's hobbies and pastimes, and I like writing that sort of thing.
21. Because it's writing which is fun and relaxing for me to do in the free time when I'm not working on my original fiction and/or trying to get published.
22. Because the feedback I get from folks in fandom is so amazing and makes me feel like even if I'm not a Big Published Author, what I write has the capacity to touch people and make them laugh or cry.
23. Because good fiction always leaves unanswered questions, and this is just one way of answering them and finding resolution.
24. Because I can write and plot, but I'm not good at creating my own characters, and it's so much easier to find things to do with ready-made ones.
25. Because I enjoy seeing how character react to situations their canons will not present them.
26. Because sometimes making something darker and grimmer can be fun (see cartoons like Biker Mice from Mars)
27. Because it's helped me improve my writing.
28. To subvert canon so that the events shown on screen make sense with my interpretation of the characters.
29. For the feedback, good or bad.
30. Moar smut!
31. To achieve catharsis by transmuting life into art.
32. To create the kinds of stories I would most like to read.
33. To crack my own sh*t up!
