Yup, you read right. This journal is retiring from business. That doesn't mean that I'm deleting it, oh no, just that I won't update anymore.
You see, I'm changing my username. The one I have now I took on a whim when I was fourteen, and I thought it was time to change it to something more neutral; and without numbers. So, my new username is beeinmybonnet. If you want to keep watching me, please add that journal to your friends list; but only if you want to, of course.
Well, I don't know if I have anything more to say, really. Wait, there is one more thing; I still have the same e-mail, if anyone's interested. Okay, that's all.
Time for stupid, immature fangirl sqeeing, because I have not yet posted something like that here. *g* (Please, never mind the very sober and serious book and game reviews I'm about to write, or that essay that I've been thinking about for weeks; this is much more important </sarcasm>)
I browsed through my collection of Kent albums and I stumbled across the song "Berg&Dalvana" ("Rollercoaster" in English). And because time is not a fixed construct and I live in all four seasons of House MD at once, I immediately started to think of the S4 finale. It has such a pretty melody, and the lyrics are both wistful and bitter at the same time.
And then there is the amazing song "Mannen I Den Vita Hatten (16 År Senare)" ("The Man In The White Hat (16 Years Later)"), also by Kent, that is far more cheerful and optimistic. It really screams 'Us Against The World', in my opinion. It's a lovely song that fits House and Wilson's story pre-show.
And these songs (yes, also by Kent -- apart from the last one, which is "#1 Crush" by Garbage) don't really have anything to do with H/W, but they're just so good that everyone should hear them. Original lyrics and translations for all Kent songs can be found here.
Title: A Matter Of ---- Author: YoungFreak92 Beta:cardboredbox Fandom: Metal Gear Solid Pairing: Dave/Hal Rating: R Warnings: Disturbing imagery Wordcount: 790 Disclaimer: I don't own Metal Gear Solid or any of the characters; I'm just playing around a bit. Summary: Dave worries that he might be dangerous to Hal. Author's Note: Originally, usomitai had a similar scene in one of her fics for the House MD fandom, and I liked the premise so much that I asked her if I could revise/elaborate the idea for this fandom. She was kind enough to let me do that, and thus this fic was born. I also want to thank cardboredbox for betaing this fic on such short notice; you're awesome.
Because I obsessively look for connections everywhere. This time, I’ve discovered that all of my OTPs include one – and only one – partner that will unfortunately die prematurely.
In Metal Gear Solid, Snake was inflicted with FoxDie; a virus that will kill him at some point, although the timing will be completely random. He is also a clone, which makes him age far too quick. Thus, he will leave poor Otacon all alone before Hal has even reached middle-age.
In Harry Potter, Remus suffers from lycanthropy, which wears terribly on the body. In the last scene he's in in the movie, he is walking out of the classroom leaning on a cane. And the whole description of “young face etched with lines” and “brown hair flecked with gray” isn’t helping either. Sirius will be left alone frighteningly soon, and that is on top of their 12 years apart. (Because everything that happened after PoA didn’t happen.)
In House MD, House’s liver will give up within a few years. And since he’s an addict, he won’t get a transplant. And then there is also the constant playing with death by submitting himself to dangerous experiments, the organ-donor-on-wheels he is so fond of, the generally self-destructive life-style and the fact that you can always get hit by a bus (which is… a disturbing simile to use after the season finale). And poor Wilson will be left alone with no one.
Title: Lay You Down Authors: youngfreak92 and usomitai Beta: Edited by the kind and wise all_grrrl_space Fandom: House MD Rating: PG Genre: Hurt/Comfort, pre-slash/UST Characters/Pairings: House/Wilson Wordcount: 8 493 Disclaimer: We don’t own House MD or any of the characters; we’re just playing around a bit. Warning: Look out for the schmoop! This is set after the S4 finale. Summary: Wilson can’t stand to be alone anymore.
The fic I have co-written with usomitai has been sent off to the betas; it’s the first day of my vacation and I’m sitting in a cottage in Åland; I’m not nearly concentrated enough to focus on my epic!fic project. What do I do in this situation? I write drabbles. *headdesk*
House MD – House/Wilson
Title: Cafeteria Rating: G Genre: Fluff [early H/W friendship] Wordcount: 153 Author's Note: Just a short, fluffy piece to distract myself from my epic project.
Title: Summer Clouds Rating: G Genre: AU [What if Pettigrew hadn't escaped that night, and Sirius and Harry had moved to that house in the country? (Remus still resigned, though)] Wordcount: 226 Author's Note: Okay, I lied again; I did write something. My new vow is to not write anything epic about these two. I've also just started to read R/S fanfics, so I've probably included a dozen clichés; I'm so sorry if that is the case. Oh, and I tried to write British English; I hope the result’s not too horrible.
Title: Game Over Rating: G Genre: Humor Wordcount: 122 Author's Note: Boy, it was a long time ago since I last wrote about these two. I wonder if I got their voices right; it was a while since I played the games.
