k2daisy: (Bosco)
Yay, the author names have been revealed for Yuletide! My, my, my, my friends are sneaky and excellent authors! Several of the stories I recced were written by you guys. :)

[livejournal.com profile] mandysbitch, congrats on The War At Home. LOVED it, and I for one am MOST appreciative that you got Stephanie out of her rut. If only Evanovich could do so!

And [livejournal.com profile] therealjae wrote Sun of a New Season and 40 Miles North of Presidio AND Falling Quiet. Sneaky! I suppose I should have guessed you'd write FNL. Heh.

I was completely wrong about the authors of Strangers in a Strange Land (it felt like a [livejournal.com profile] vaznetti crossover to me!) and We'll Take What We Can Carry, and We'll Leave The Rest (my guess was [livejournal.com profile] hossgal), but brava to the real authors, hyperfocused and luzdeestrellas, respectively.

And my very own gift, my beloved A Can of Beer and Thou, was written by Zortified, who I am astonished I didn't know before now. How can someone who knows Bosco that well have gone unnoticed by me before?

++++

My own story was a Rescue Me fic, Breaking the Ice, for [livejournal.com profile] starlurker. I don't have much to say about the writing process for this, because it just popped out of me fully formed just when I least expected it. But if [livejournal.com profile] starlurker is reading this, I want to say I actually TRIED to write the Luke/Noah story you wanted for ATWT, but it kept meandering and never took off into anything more than one brief scene. But I was so pleased and excited to have seen the prompt (I love ATWT, and it's hard to find people online who do), and I wish I could have fulfilled that one for you too.

Now it is time to wander off and see if some of my other friends wrote things in fandoms I am familiar with, so I can read and enjoy them. [livejournal.com profile] jesshelga? [livejournal.com profile] orangetip? Will I know your fandoms?
k2daisy: (Medium -- happy marriage)
From the [livejournal.com profile] fannish5 and all over my flist:

What are your five favorite canonical romances?

Hunh. Every last one of them is a long-term marriage, although of very different stripes.

1. Alison and Joe DuBois, Medium.
Until FNL arrived, this was the most real-feeling marriage on the air. The way they interact with each other, the way they raise their family together, the way they love each other, it's all just there as a fact of life for these two. They're awesome.

2. Coach and Mrs. Coach, Friday Night Lights.
Tami's feet on top of Eric's is the perfect image for them. That, and the fight under the table at the last-minute party. And when she told they were having another child. Oh, hell, everything about them is incredible.

3. Faith and Fred Yokas, Third Watch.
I never saw a couple really FIGHT on television before I saw them. Not just stupid sitcom arguing, but full-on 'I know you better than anyone and I know where you will bleed' fights. But it wasn't all that they were; their frustration was a function of the stress of Faith's job, the size of their apartment, trying to raise two kids in said small apartment, trying to figure out what they wanted in life, living with the wreckage of their families, the tragedies and disasters that befell them, and on and on and on. They had such fierce love for each other, too, which made their inexplicable breakup all the more inexplicable. They'd gotten through worse together, so they should have survived that too. But they didn't.

4. Frank and Joyce, Hill Street Blues.
Marriage made sexy. Smart made sexy. They were just flat-out sexy.

5. Luke and Laura Spencer, General Hospital.
The greatest thing about these two is that 25 years after their world-famous wedding, after all kinds of breakups and disappearances and traumas, you watch the way Luke looks at Laura, with that adoring gaze full of shock, awe, and devotion, like after all this time together he still can't really believe she loves him back, and it is physically impossible not to cry. Their reunion last year was absolutely magical, even if the re-wedding itself was a let-down.

+++++

In unrelated news, my husband rocks. I don't say that often enough.
k2daisy: (Faith - Crap to Say)
Title: 5 Times Faith Almost Applied for a New Partner, But Didn't After All
Fandom: Third Watch
Summary: See title.
Rating: Gen, some het, PG-13.
Notes: Because [livejournal.com profile] leadensky asked for the 5-things meme, and she doesn’t even know the show! What a pal. This one definitely could have used a beta.

Title: Five People Bosco Pulled Over But Didn’t Give a Ticket To
Fandom: Third Watch
Summary: See the title.
Rating: Gen, PG-13.
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] barkley asked for this one here. This is my first attempt at fanfic in a long, long while. It felt good. Probably could have used a beta, though. Maybe next time.

k2daisy: (TW Acquired Taste)
There is a character often found in ensemble shows, someone who right from their first scene forces viewers to choose sides: you either love him or hate him (and they almost always are "him"s), a reaction which is immediate, visceral, and total. Nobody feels anything for this character halfway, and frankly, that's just the way he likes it. There's nothing halfway about him.

I am speaking, of course, of the Asshole.

Oooooh, Kristen's going all meta! It's been a while since she did that! )

Okay, so that just swallowed up my whole morning. Time to go get some chores done and whatnot!

*bawls*

Bosco running. They ended it with Bosco running.

Thank you, John Wells.



and then some more in-depth spoilers )

When is this show finally coming out on DVD? When, when??
