Sticky 12th July, 2011. 8:55 pm. Dæmonverse Masterlist

As an introduction, everyone's dæmons (names, forms and the significance thereof, as well as a few paragraphs to explain what dæmons are to those who aren't familiar with His Dark Materials) are listed here.  Note that fics are posted in order of internal chronology, not necessarily the order in which they were written.

Filed below is an early experiment with the idea of dæmons for House et al.: House and Wilson and their respective dæmons embark on a relationship, and begin working through the issues unearthed by the Tritter disaster.

Having gotten the idea of how to write the characters with their dæmons, I threw canon parameters out the window and brought the societal norms of Philip Pullman's world to PPTH.  This fusion of the two worlds created something much richer, and far larger, than I expected at the onset.

Current mood: accomplished.

18th December, 2016. 7:17 pm. Signal-boosting a multi-fandom charity effort.

After the shock of the U.S. election results started wearing off, I began considering what I could do to help the situation.  Eventually, I hit upon the idea of a fandom charity effort, wherein volunteer fic writers and artists would create commissioned fic and art, and the money would go to various charities supporting the causes and groups that That Man is against and seeks to victimize.

However, I am not a superlative organizer and wasn't sure how to manage the logistics.

Happily, a group of wonderful people on Tumblr had the same thought I did and created fandomtrumpshateAuthor and artist sign-ups begin tomorrow, and I will be signing up to write Housefic.  I'm posting this here in hopes that some authors who remain in House fandom might be interested in getting involved.

Current mood: hopeful.

20th June, 2016. 12:14 pm. Author Interview!

Happy summer solstice!

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted here.  But resourceress7 just posted the author interview I completed for the housemd_what_if comm, and I hoped enough of my friends list was still active in House fandom to be interested in reading it.

Please stop by for information on what draws me to what-if as a genre, my history in fandom, selected headcanons, and my latest Housefic in progress.  And leave a comment if you're moved to do so--I love interacting with other fans, and I've missed this fandom very much.

Current mood: excited.

24th November, 2013. 2:16 am. SCI Arc Apocrypha

Since it's been a number of months (and because I just finished a song rework that was being uncooperative), I thought I ought to post again.  I hope to have more time for fandom again after the holiday season, but in the meantime, please enjoy the song rework and three short poems.

First, the song rework.  Call this "Nobody's Fault" in a not-quite-duet.
Collapse )

Next, House's perspective on the events of the episode.  This one is unusual for me: I write very few villanelles, since this particular French verse form is difficult to render well in English.  It's also in second person, which I hadn't experimented with before.  Still, I'm pleased with the result.
Collapse )

Switching to Chase's perspective, this is a jump rope poem, set during his yet-unwritten rehab/recovery period.
Collapse )

Finally, a triolet.  This is a form I learned relatively recently, but its circular structure seemed to suit the subject: Chase in early recovery, learning to manage a wheelchair.
Collapse )

Current mood: hopeful.

28th May, 2013. 4:27 am. The Summer To-Do List.

Yes, I'm still here, I still love the fandom, and I still have stories to tell.  (I just hope anyone is still reading after I vanished for ten months.)

The Adaptations 'verse gets top priority, since uncounted hours of neuroanatomy and -rehab research, a Chart of said research that fully deserves the capital letter, and one very patient co-researcher/editor have been waiting months for grad school to loosen its clutches.  Next installment will be the rewrite of "While You Were Out."

I also want to write some short pieces (say one to three pages) in the world of "Principles of Growth."  If anyone wants to see a particular moment, feel free to suggest it.  I can't make promises, but you might spark something.

On a related note, the Masterlist entry for the Dæmonverse has been reformatted slightly, and now features a photo-manipulation of House, Wilson and Chase with their respective dæmons.

Current mood: tired.

4th September, 2012. 10:51 am. "Adaptations" 'verse: No Such Thing as Absolution

Title: No Such Thing as Absolution
Author: lit_luminary
Rating: PG-13 for medical realism.
Characters: House, Chase.
Summary: After Cofield's verdict, House visits Chase in ICU.  Apologizing can’t fix this, but there’s nothing else he can do.
Notes: Thanks to resourceress7 for masterful beta-reading and research assistance.

Current mood: excited.

3rd September, 2012. 7:58 am. An appreciation post.

"No Such Thing as Absolution," the next story in the "Adaptations" 'verse, will be online tomorrow.  I'm posting today because I want everyone to appreciate my beta reader, resourceress7, who made this possible.

How?  With twenty-nine hours total of line-by-line discussion and analysis, in face of sleep deprivation and my overzealous love of semicolons.  We brainstormed.  We debated.  We had so much fun.  And this piece is now as close to perfect as it can be made.  Together, a linguist and an English lit major, alike in obsessive attention to detail, have determined that every word is in its correct place and pulling its weight.

You should also know that I never attempted medical fic before "Adaptations" because I knew I'd get caught up in researching the individual leaves on the trees, and the forest would never be written.  In her function as co-researcher, resourceress7 organizes everything we learn about SCIs and the management thereof, enabling me keep it straight.  So I can pull medical fact into the stories I write without any appearance of effort, but I have tables and timelines making my 'verse go round.

I'm a good writer.  Having a good editor is improving my work considerably, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to grow.

Current mood: grateful.

22nd August, 2012. 10:50 pm. What I've been working on.

Currently, the "Adaptations" series—my attempt to bring medical realism to Chase's spinal cord injury (hereafter SCI)—has been taking priority.  I've been fortunate enough to have resourceress7 and enigma731 join me as co-researchers (giving me the benefit of superlative organizational/editorial skills and a neurorehab background, respectively), because SCI and rehabilitation is an expansive, complex topic.  Their help has been invaluable, and it's thanks to them that I'll be able to get the next story in this series posted before January break.  (Grad school permitting, I hope to post again in September, but I know better than to make any promises.)

"Acute Management" has been revised slightly to reflect continuing research.  Next up will be a reworked version of House's apology, now brought to you from the ICU to reflect the fact that Chase won't even be able to handle serious physical therapy for at least a month.  After that, "Step Follows Step" and "While You Were Out" (which I willingly admit I wrote without knowing nearly enough about the medical details involved; their current incarnations should be considered beta versions) will be edited to align with all previous events, and I'll be able to move forward properly.

This is going to be a long road for both Chase and House.  I look forward to recording where it leads.

Current mood: satisfied.
