Yes, I'm aliiiiive! But I've been running around like a headless chicken that's having its apartment renovated while trying to teach three courses - which is why I've been sticking to commenting rather than posting for the last few months.

A funny thing happened on the way to this meme...

I'm not much of a meme girl - actually, this is the first I'm posting. Bu-ut... one of the instructions for this was to open the nearest book to page 23 and, when I grabbed the nearest book, I managed to open it first time on... yes, page 23! So, I decided that this was obviously something that needed sharing:

1. grab the nearest book
2. open the book to page 23
3. find the fifth sentence
4. post the text of the next three sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
6. go on, you know you want to play, too

Sometimes I saw him all wrapped up in the cloud, and invisible, like a cat in a burlap sack. At other times it floated, about the size of a sofa, three or four feet above his head, following him wherever he went. One could think about the man under the cloud before going to sleep; the image of him wandering around from town to town was a sure soporific.

'The Thurber Carnival', James Thurber

Any other Thurber-lovers out there, btw?

Darn! They've Boiled the Missionary

It’s dark; it’s benighted; it’s savage... It’s beyond bad!fic – it’s vile!fic!

Vile!author has taken my entire continent and thrown up on it in words. She sends House and the ducklings to save the Africans, who have never before beheld the majesty of white!Cameron but are just smart enough to rejoice at the sight of the metal bird.

Yup, this fic has a ‘metal bird’ in it. Srsly.

Puppeteer in a Volvo

Ever heard the joke about how many elephants you can fit in a car? While the answer to that may remain one of life's enduring mysteries, read on, and you will discover just how many adjectives you can jam into one short bad!fic.

Plus, you'll gain such valuable insights as why Wilson can only cut the strings that control him if he hangs around while House mopes on the beach!

PG for the MST, I guess, and G for the fic.

A/N: Happy Birthday, elizabethswan! I’d dedicate this MST to you, but I’m afraid it doesn’t actually have any House/Cam in it (sorry! I promise to write some asap ;-). Hope you’re better soon, and have a great birthday all the same.

Night after the Dead

Title: Night after the Dead
Author: thinlysliced
Pairing: House/Cameron
Rating: R
Spoilers: none
Summary: Cameron is drunk. House is… undecided.
Disclaimer: not mine
A/N: Apologies to my fellow MSTies for slipping into Ham – hope you can forgive me ;-) Also, I'm looking for a thoughtful beta. I am (hopefully) pretty good at grammar and typos, but I generally write op-ed/features and would really appreciate some guidance with writing fic.

Farewell Hawaii

Why would Cameron go to Hawaii to kill herself? And perhaps even more puzzling is the question of who is tormenting House in the afterlife…

Things get tense amongst the PPTH MSTers when Cuddy forces them to express their feelings and they are faced with a spirituality-laced crack!fic. Can Chase come back from hair envy? Can House head off a Cameron/Wilson bitch fight? So many questions.

A Simple Threshold

Title: A Simple Threshold
Pairing: Cameron/Wilson
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/Spoilers: no real spoilers
Summary: Wilson and Cameron had an indulgent weekend, but now it’s time to face House.
Disclaimer: not mine
Notes: This is a sequel to my first fic What Wasn’t Secret, but don’t let that put you off ;-) I’ve done away with the dreadfully ill-advised second-person perspective in this one.

House Gets a Girlfriend

It’s an OOC fiesta! House turns into both a teenaged girl and a heartless monster, and Cameron gives up on sex…

Luckily MST!House makes up for it by spanking MST!Cameron, while MST!Foreman worries his valuable skills aren’t being effectively utilized. Also featuring the diagnostic talents of MST!Wilson and outraged protests of MST!Chase.
