Prompt #8

I'm drinking champagne, feeling no pain till early morning
Dining and dancing with every pretty girl I can find
And I'm having a fling with a pretty young thing till early morning
Knowing tomorrow, I'll wake up with you on my mind.

Coolness abounds

Five days till the Squeeeeeee Odyssey takes off. My qualms about John's upcoming US appearance should not in any way be taken to mean that I'm not incredibly enthused about seeing the Panto (twice) and seeing Oliver and meeting a bunch of my wonderful LJers in Birmingham and London. (And waving at mad_jaks as I fly over.)

Attention UK Squeeeee-ites, our Director of Communications has a mobile that we'll be able to use once we're in the UK and get it charged: 07504038740


Yesterday I got an email from Yep Roc Records advising me that The Gourds new album was in the stores. My husband loves The Gourds. Loves. Loves. Loves. My first instinct was to call him up and tell him this, but then I got a better idea which was to go to Virgin Records after work and get it for him since I never actually got him a Christmas gift this year, what with all the craziness that was going on.

So I got to Virgin and was able to get and then went to Maharajah on Valencia street to pick up some Indian food. He was totally surprised by the CD and very happy with the food.

What's odd, is the only reason I get email from Yep Roc is that about two years ago I downloaded a few bonus tracks for the Nick Lowe album "At My Age," and I've been on their email list ever since.

So this all worked out quite fabulously.

Then we had a nearly perfect night of punditry.

On Countdown, we got more of the upsidedown naked guy, plus the horror of Fox's coverage of the upsidedown naked guy. Keith and Michael Musto discussed the possible bail-out of the porn industry with Musto getting in all kinds of borderline obscene zingers to the point that Keith was clearly losing it.

Rachel had to pick up from there, with more shots at Bush for NOT letting Obama use Blair House, including an interview with a very hunky, bearded Australian journalist and it's the most flirty I've seen her be with anyone except Ana Marie Cox. I mean this guy was working it and so was she. If I get the guy's name I'll let you know. He was seriously yummy and fun.
Then she put on a miner's hat because of all the caving in going on in the Senate over the appointee to Obama's senate seat and after Kent did "Just Enough," she let him wear the hat.

After that we watched the Daily Show, with Rachel as the guest. Jon was ALL OVER the media obsession with the Obama girls first day at school, had a great bit with Asif Mandvi about Sanjay Gupta, and told Rachel she was like Marilyn on the Munsters. He said that Chris Matthews was the dragon under the stairs and Pat Buchanan was Grandpa. He didn't come right and say that Keith was Herman, but one suspects that's his opinion.

Finally the Colbert report with OMG, my favorite name to say: Benicio Del Toro, who was pretty adorable as well.

This morning I blew off the gym because I needed to get a bag of laundry out. Hubby said he'd walk down with me, but he was wearing the utilikilt (he's up to three of them) and I'm really adamant about not wanting to be seen with him in it. I know. I'm a bitch and bit of a hypocrit because I honestly looked pretty schlumpy, but I hate the thing and I'm not backing down. He's wearing it to his first meeting back at work and then going to a doctor's appointment. He says it's convenient for the doctor to look at his leg, but I think he's just going for the shock value at the meeting.

He starts work again on Monday, which will be six months to day more or less since the accident, and is the day I leave on the SQUEEEEEE ODYSSEY!
Hey guys!

I wrote a lot of fic in December. Gifts, consci_fan_mo, obsessive canon-subversion, and just a shit-load of creativity.

A lot of you were busy. Tired. Away. Too frazzled to do anything, but work on your own fic. Etc etc etc. So you might have missed something. Or just not had the time or energy. (Or you thought it sucked and didn't want to say so.)

It's never too late to read, comment and pimp.

So here are some highlights of December in all it's Fictacular Glory.

Thanks again to mad_jaks for sponsoring consci_fan_mo which kicked off the month, and to donutsweeper for inspiring me with her Owen fic, which got me started.

Lost Art
Fandom: Torchwood
Owencentric drabble. I loved the response to this one.

Demon Lover
Fandom: Heroes
Pairing: Nathan/Mohinder


Jack/Owen smut/angst extravaganza

Forgotten Words and Bonds
Wordcount: 1200
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Owen
Rating: NC17-Post ep for They Keep Killing Suzie
This is the only fic I really intended to write for consci_fan_mo, and yeah it's canon-subversive IF you really think a stop-watch was what Jack needed after that episode.

A Place to Hide Away
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Owen
Rating: R
Post ep for Adrift.
More angst and some psuedo-canon suberversion, if you really believe in "clinging for hours."

Other TW/Who-verse fics

Your Mission, Should You Decide To Accept It
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/John
Christmas gift for kohlrimmedeye. Definitely fell into the vortex and I'm still waiting for it to clear moderation queue at roguetimeagents
Rating: R
Wordcount: 1125

Fandom: Torchwood
Pairings: Jack/Ianto (canon), Jack/Gwen (ambiguous) Jack/Suzie (implied)
Rating: PG13
Wordcount: 450
An attempt at truce after some harsh rhetoric.


John Barrowman/David Tennant RPS

Hooray For Hollywood-
Rating: NC17

This one is still feeling kind of lonely. :(
Written for everyone who wanted to know what actually happened between John and David after opening night of Hamlet and also to account for certain events at the Hub. This may be the end of the line for this particular RPS pairing, so it gets a bit angsty and Captain Jack makes an appearance as the Voice of Reason.

House MD


Wordcount: 100
Pairing: Wilson/Drug Rep (mentioned in Love Hurts)
Written for ppth_support

Santa's Helper
Characters: Cam-centric, references to H/W friendship.
Rating: G
Wordcount: 620
Notes: Missing scene for "Joy To the World." Written to resolve an unacceptable plot point.


Life On Mars
Comfort and Joy
Pairings: Sam/Annie, Sam/Gene
Rating: NC17
Wordcount: 2475
Birthday/Christmas Present for candesgirl
One reason I love the LOM fandom, where Het and Gen can co-exist peacefully, even when there's canon on one side and serious subtext on the other.

yuletide Fics

All About Rachel
Punditslash/Journalist RPF. Includes Keith/Stephen, Keith/Anderson, Keith/Rachel, and even Rachel/Ana Marie plus appearances by other pundits and journalists.

Tennis Prose
Posh Nosh-I know it's an itsy-bitsy little fandom, but I had a blast writing it. If you don't know, Jose Luis is a very young David Tennant.

The Last Temptation of DCI Bell
State of Play-Character study of DCI Bell looking at the reporters and other characters, especially Della.

Written for elishavah

One more reminder-Yuletide readers-there is something that all four of these fics have in common. Tell me what it is and you will receive a drabble or longer if your prompt inspires me.
