    Summary

    Of all these little meta digressions, this is more truly an essay and piece of lit-crit. I had a chunk of last night and this morning to think about the structure and nature of how a story is told, and what your perception of the story does to your choices of through-lines. This is a lit-crit essay focusing on *Sherlock*, and using Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie as paradigmatic examples of two different approaches to the development of narrative spines and through-lines. Meta. Essay. Lit-crit. Analysis. Dry. Somewhat academic. Consider yourselves thoroughly warned. My inner honor student shineth forth.

    Summary

    I like your voice
    But it’s so much nicer when it drifts sleepily into the nape of my neck
    With your shaky lips
    Or forces it’s way inside my mouth
    As if my words aren't my own anymore
    Just your ideas swirling around my tongue In longing circles
    How do you keep it from quivering
    Because mine stumbles and stutters over your name
    Like it doesn’t understand the syllables

    Summary

    Bits of meta, mostly about Captain America and HYDRA, previously posted in other forums but now collected here.

    1) Steve is blushing, but no virgin.
    2) The military record of Sergeant James 'Bucky' Barnes.
    3) The Winter Soldier probably didn't kill the Starks.
    4) HYDRA: the ultimate rebranding
    5) There's a significant time gap between Bucky Barnes's death and Steve Rogers's.

    Summary

    Nearly nine years ago I stopped Team Flare, and I met the legendary Pokémon. I gained a wish that activated when I was on the brink of death from Lysandre; I wished to live. I have been sixteen for nearly ten years, due to the aforementioned legendary Pokémon.

    I am Marguerite Linden du Bois. Tomorrow, I begin a new career as a Pokémon professor. Tomorrow, I begin my rebellion.
    ______

    This will be subject to my own interpretations of the Pokémon world, including that the ultimate weapon was only the start of dismantling Team Flare. It's more on worldbuilding, but I promise to write as I can!

    ANNOUNCEMENT 25 Jun 2014: I will be attempting a weekly posting plan in light of summer school and the start of a new fic. This fic, with any luck, will be updated on Wednesday.

    Summary

    This isn't a story; it's an invitation to a discussion. I can't get enough of talking about Brian Kinney, and I can't get enough of watching the show. This is my excuse to do both. Please, please, please join in - agree, disagree, tell me what you think Brian had for lunch - everything goes.

    This will go on for forever and hopefully trigger some story ideas (and ideas for my WIPs). No observation, thought or theory is too trivial or weird. Bring 'em on!

    Summary

    John comes home and finds Sherlock acting very strangely; conversely, Sherlock finds John is a bit off. They both suspect the other of having had some sort of trauma and try to figure out what exactly is going on.

    And ohhh... there's a lot more to it than that! Lots of AUs, misunderstandings, fluff, smut, a bit of crack and a case fic all thrown in for good fun!

    Summary

    In which I talk about how, although the actual case in "Tithonus" is not that gripping, the episode is better because it uses the "taking Mulder and SCully off the X-Files" premise of Season 6 to do some really interesting character work with Mulder and Scully.

    Summary

    Because I write a lot of fiction set in the Enchanted Forest, I decided to make a map to make my life easier. This is the result of many hours of research and photoshop. Feel free to use it as you wish, but please give credit where it's due.

    Summary

    Carlos and Cecil have been together long enough that Carlos notices when Cecil begins to act strangely. He's not behaving like himself, but like someone else's interpretation of what he might be like. And that's just the beginning of their problems.

    A story about the problems that happen when people write fanfic about your life. Things get extremely meta.
