Welcome to 3:00AM with no glasses

It's not really a resolution, but if I can figure out a way to STOP getting up in the middle of the night and eating that would be a good thing.

My father did this, to the extent that when I was growing up there was a lock on our refrigerator because he would eat EVERYTHING. I'm not that bad, but it's definitely a problem, mostly because if I eat in the middle of the night, I generally don't have a protein shake at 5 or 6, which means I'm not getting good gym nutrition. Also, I'm usually not quite awake when I do it, and I sometimes leave bits of food in the bed, which hubby finds the next day and isn't pleased.

There's even the fear that I'm going to choke. Apples or carrots or things that really need to be conscientiously chewed are not the best thing for middle-of-the night eating. I mean I've woken up with unchewed food in my mouth.

I don't know how to short circuit this behavior or if it's nature or nurture.

On the other hand, it was worth it to wake up, check my email (another compulsive behaviour) to see Haldane's drabbe response in the comment chain of my previous posting.

How EVER will I get back to sleep now? :)

ALSO-after a bit of unseemly whinging and whining (SURPRISE!) my two Yuletide fics are at nine comments each, which is most gratifying. I can't link or tell you which fandoms until the reveal, but I will allow as to how I snuck an "uncredited cameo appearance" by JB into one of them and the 9th comment was the first one to mention it, although I'm not sure they actually know who I meant.

Hugh&Bobby retrospective

Hey guys, there will be a new Hugh&Bobby story coming to the Chelsea Drugstore. When you say? Stay tuned, I answer.


I'm posting the links to the series to date in case anybody has missed a story or just wants to remind themselves of what has gone before. Also, shockingly enough I know there are people who have held out this long for whatever reason. (Principles, moral objections.) Now's your chance to give up on all that rubbish, made easy with one-stop shopping.

I can't begin to tell you how much Beta Goddess Carol is a part of this process and how many ideas and lines go back and forth between us before I even start the writing. All include either hard-core smut or sexual allusions.

It all started with an image in my mind: Hugh Laurie playing piano on the House apartment set, singing Noel Coward songs and Robert Sean Leonard listening to him.

I don't THINK I had intended to write a series. I hate series, multi-parters, WIPs etc. But there was more story to tell and I couldn't stop myself. One of the best endings to a story I've ever written, and it's only there because Beta Goddess Carol sent it back over and over again, until I came up with something that made us both cry.

Short fic written in a burst of inspiration after seeing Robert Sean Leonard in the PBS American Master's program about Eugene O'Neill.

This is the one that caused the famous WANK at house_wilson. I posted the damn thing and woke up to find a rather contentious situation had broken out. I was stunned only because I'd posted all the previous chapters at the comm with little to no brou-ha-ha.
Inspired by an interview given by Robert Sean Leonard, as well Hugh's interview on Inside the Actor's Studio.

My first attempt at writing Stephen's POV, which I think has been one of the more controversial aspects of the series. I also had a lot of fun writing Ethan. One of my schmoopier endings.

A Fry-wank story written as part of the mmom challenge. Fits into the continuity of the Hugh&Bobby-verse.

Collision Course Part 1
Collsion Course Part 2

Things get seriously epic and I take the risk of writing Gaby's POV, as well as Hugh, Bobby, & Stephen. Name dropping, cameo appearences and Marianne Faithful singing Noel Coward.

Red Carpet Blues

Three award shows, including Hugh's famous Golden Globe Speech.

Separation Anxiety
What happened during the writer's strike.
The end of the story to date.

I'll update this post as future chapters get posted.
