Response to the "Explain Yourself" meme-For aithlyn

OK, so I'm only like A MONTH late.



As I'm sure the world knows, I'm not a House/Cam shipper, but I think this was a very charged moment from "No Reason" and it's got Hugh's hands, as well as Jennifer's. This fandom and Mr. Laurie in particular have made me a hand fan in a way I never was before.


For those who don't know, Mr. Robbie Williams. What can I say? He's hot, he's a cheeky bugger and he can sing. Why he's still not doing fuck all in terms of selling in the States is beyond me. How can you not like a guy with lyrics like this:

"Don't want to piss on your parade, I'm here to make money and get laid.
Yeah, I'm a star but I'll fade. If you ain't sticking your knives in me. You will be eventually."


OOPS. I stole it for a friend because I thought she'd like it. I have no idea what it really is or where it came from. Sorry. If you're the one who made it, let me know and I'll give you credit.



I love to sing. I'm not really good. "Pitchy" as they say on American Idol. But I have tons of panache. Great memory for lyrics. Showmanship. Belt voice.
And getting up onstage at the Mint and getting the applause is a major addiction. Still trying to make up for not getting into the musicals in High School, among other things.

If I could quit my job and work at the Mint as a KJ, I would.

Slash Fiction:
I go way, way back in fandom. Back to fanzines on paper. Back to Star Trek conventions. Back to Kirk/Spock, the fandom that created slash. But that was before I found out I was a major league fag-hag, although it should have been a hint.

I didn't think particularly slashy thoughts about any TV show until my first episode of House, which due to a Netflix error, was "Damned If You Do" and it just screamed at me the minute I saw House and Wilson together.

The next day, I sat down at the computer and googled "House Wilson Slash Fiction" knowing it would be there, but not knowing I would end up at LiveJournal and literally change my life.

Now I go into new TV shows looking for the slash and if I don't see it, I'm not likely to be very interested. And as you can tell, my fannish writing has expanded way past my House obsession.

It took over six months of only writing slash to write my first House/Cam and declare myself bifictional, but I still consider myself primarily a slash writer.

I think Tom Lehrer said it best:

Give me smut and nothing but!
A dirty novel I can't shut,
If it's uncut,
and unsubt- le.

I've never quibbled
If it was ribald,
I would devour where others merely nibbled.
As the judge remarked the day that he
acquitted my Aunt Hortense,
"To be smut
It must be ut-
Terly without redeeming social importance."

Nographic pictures I adore.
Indecent magazines galore,
I like them more
If they're hard core.

(Bring on the obscene movies, murals, postcards, neckties,
samplers, stained-glass windows, tattoos, anything!
More, more, I'm still not satisfied!)

Stories of tortures
Used by debauchers,
Lurid, licentious, and vile,
Make me smile.
Novels that pander
To my taste for candor
Give me a pleasure sublime.
(Let's face it, I love slime.)

All books can be indecent books
Though recent books are bolder,
For filth (I'm glad to say) is in
the mind of the beholder.
When correctly viewed,
Everything is lewd.
(I could tell you things about Peter Pan,
And the Wizard of Oz, there's a dirty old man!)

I thrill
To any book like Fanny Hill,
And I suppose I always will,
If it is swill
And really fil

Who needs a hobby like tennis or philately?
I've got a hobby: rereading Lady Chatterley.
But now they're trying to take it all
away from us unless
We take a stand, and hand in hand
we fight for freedom of the press.
In other words,

Smut! (I love it)
Ah, the adventures of a slut.
Oh, I'm a market they can't glut,
I don't know what
Compares with smut.

Hip hip hooray!
Let's hear it for the Supreme Court!
Don't let them take it away!
