Is it just me, or is this rather apropos for the whole Hadron Collider thing?

Anyway. Favorite episode is either "Bad Blood" or the absolutely fantastic "Ghosts Who Stole Christmas." I'm a sucker for the silly ones.

And no. I don't believe in anything more paranormal than my snail's ability to return from seemingly-deceased states. Although I did have a nightmare about some sort of haunted house last night, so obviously I was having a premonition about it being the X-Files' anniversary. So there you go. ;)

David Duchovny checks into rehab for a sex addiction. Is it bad that my first thought was "my, that's quite an interesting choice for last-ditch effort at a career-restoring publicity stunt"?

Followed quickly by "It's good to know he's still keeping close to his porno-film roots..." of course.

Okay, I know I just mentioned in my last entry about the X-Files and how much I want the next movie not to suck... but I've got another X-Files related rant that's been niggling at the back of my mind.

I really want to deal with the sexual and skeptical politics of the relationship between Mulder ans Scully. But - I promise not to take it too seriously, and I also promise that I still love this show, no matter what. (I'm not promising to love the new movie, though - not until I've seen it!) I'm not saying Chris Carter is a sexist, I'm not even saying the show is unintentionally sexist - I'm just indulging in my trained love of taking a piece of writing, taking a viewpoint, and shredding the hell out of it for my own intellectual entertainment. ♥

Note: I am completely ignoring everything past season 6 at the moment. I might at some point try to bring more detail and breadth into this argument, but for the moment I simply don't remember the later seasons well enough to argue anything about them (particularly given that I stopped watching entirely after season 7. So... if you want to talk about what happens after David Duchovny pulled his disappearing act, you'll probably have to explain context to me. The whole point of the show, for me, was their relationship... so I ignored the show after they broke that.

Skepticism, True Believers, and the Male Ego as Truth - or Fiction? )

Can I PLEASE get a new country? Please? No, really, please? If it weren't for Turkey, the US would be the last country on this list of countries by acceptance of evolution. WTF.

I want to know exactly what terms this study used to determine acceptance of evolution (ie, what were the exact options offered to people in the survey), but... but.... but....... people. Please. This is sheer stupidity.

* * *

Okay, good things about today. Good things. Things that do not involve stupidity.

1. I got a seat on the bus today!
2. I had an X-Files dream last night, and dreamed I was Scully. I can go with this. ♥
3. Picked up a ton of books from the library last night, and also the BSG miniseries. Wish me luck on getting through all of them before they expire!
4. The video here makes me really happy.
5. I actually wrote last night. This is a minor miracle, given my last few weeks. Yay!

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] nekokoban because I'm sleepy and braindead. Or something. :P

Six Pairings I Like:

5. Snape/Lupin (Harry Potter... though I haven't written it in ages)
6. Giles/Jenny (Buffy, and yes, I know I'm living in the past...)

Three Ships I've Abandoned:
(For the sake of expedience, we'll just go with "pairings from fandoms I no longer actively read and/or write in," 'cause honestly, I'm incapable of actually giving up on pairings. And fandoms, for that matter... XD)

7. Garak/Bashir (DS9)
8. Scully/Mulder (X-Files)
9. Lucius/Narcissa (Harry Potter)

Three Ships I've Never Liked:

10. Giles/Buffy (Buffy, obviously, and eew)
11. Sirius/Snape (HP
12. Harry/anybody (HP)

Two Ships That Have Piqued My Interest:

13. Master/Doctor (really, I think of this as Master-->Doctor, but either way)
14. ...umm.... okay, I'll admit a mild fascination with Romana/Sarah (Doctor Who).

Questions! )
rivendellrose: (scully red)
For [livejournal.com profile] zinjadu, who asked for X-Files, and got a little bit more because of the specific nature of her prompt. This is such a total piece of crack... but I couldn't resist. Assumes the background of Family Portrait, a prior piece of crack on which this is closely based.

Halloween at Sleepy Hollow, 2001, or ‘The Headless Horseman and the FBI Agents Who Couldn’t Leave Well Enough Alone’ )

For [livejournal.com profile] jayneaintagirl, who asked for Mulder and Skinner both going for the last cup of coffee in the pot, and [livejournal.com profile] narsilion, who asked for Mulder being convinced that he was being stalked, and Scully disbelieving him. Somehow, as soon as I got them, those two prompts meshed together in my head and came out as this little bit of madness.

I've never written Skinner before. Turns out, he's pretty fun. He's so... normal. XD

Fandom: X-Files
Characters: Skinner, Mulder, Scully.
Title: "Another Morning at FBI Headquarters"
Rating: PG-13. Skinner has a dirty mouth when he's sleepy.
Disclaimer: I'm not a millionaire surfer boy, hence I don't own them, and I don't make money off this. No infringement is intended.

The 12 characters meme is making the rounds again, and it gives me something to fuss with between tasks, so....

1. Mal Reynolds (Firefly)
2. Marcus Cole (B5)
3. Dana Scully (XF)
4. Zoe Alleyne Washburne (Firefly)
5. Susan Ivanova (B5)
6. River Tam (Firefly)
7. Fox Mulder (XF)
8. Delenn (B5)
9. Inara Serra (Firefly)
10. Badger (Firefly)
11. Tony Foster ('Smoke and...' books)
12. Claire Hansen (Keeper books)

Okay... this whole "you can't copy/paste things from LJ" thing is really getting on my nerves. Maybe if I switch to a different layout... no. Okay, fine. We'll do this the hard way, then. *Growls*

And the questions )

Well. It only took me a little over a year to finish it, but [livejournal.com profile] zinjadu, I finally have your birthday fic done.

You guessed it - it's that damned crossover I've been promising.

Fandoms: Highlander and X-Files
Characters: Scully, Mulder, and Maggie, Charlie, and Bill Scully (Jr), and Joe, Methos, Richie, and Amy.
Summary: This is a bit of an AU for both series. Basically, blip out the whole Ahriman situation for Highlander, and forget about that crazy situation where Mulder disappeared from the X-Files. This fic also assumes the background of my "Interference" series, namely that Amy was assigned as Methos' Watcher and things... got a bit messy after that. Forgive me, I have no control over my own characters.
And dear gods, don't squint too hard at the plot. I know it's cracked. o_O

rivendellrose: (reading)
rosalindjen: Harry's abdomen is a scary place.
Zinjadu2: ... why?
rosalindjen: when he sees Remus in the pensieve in OotP: "Harry's stomach gave another pleasurable squirm"
Zinjadu2: ... does he have a beast in his chest?
rosalindjen: that too.
Zinjadu2: ... o_O
Zinjadu2: what the fuck all does Harry have for innards?
rosalindjen: *reconsiders her opinion that Harry is asexual*
Zinjadu2: no, really, what's he got in there?
rosalindjen: aliens.
Zinjadu2: oh noes!
rosalindjen: he has gay aliens in his stomach.
rosalindjen: and straight aliens, too.
Zinjadu2: *blinks* wow.
Zinjadu2: poor Harry.
rosalindjen: I know. it's impressive.
rosalindjen: poor guy must have horrible gas.
Zinjadu2: you should post this converstion, you know

There you go, Kari. I've posted it.

All drabbles are what I'd call tame, with no explicit sexual content or other inappropriate material - after all, I'm writing these things on my office computer at work! ;)

The first drabble of the day belongs to [livejournal.com profile] nekokoban, who requested "Full Metal Alchemist - the gimp brigade and miniskirts." I apologize for making up a holiday.
Happy Constitution Day, Colonel Mustang )

Next, [livejournal.com profile] lennaofmidearth's request: "X-Files, Mulder/Krycek involving garter belts."
Friday Night in DC )
rivendellrose: (Default)
I think this is the last of the requested drabbles - [livejournal.com profile] tiffangelwings requested Happy!Ed from FMA, so here it is.

Late Night )

ETA: I forgot one! [livejournal.com profile] narsilion requested that I see what might happen if Duncan, Methos, Joe, Mulder and Scully were allowed to briefly meet up. Scary as it is, I had to try... and it kind of morphed. I meant to add in Duncan and Methos, but it's a double as it is, and Amy fit better... so I apologize. I'll try to add a few more later as Mulder and Scully continue their investigation. *g*

Thursday Night at Joe's )

Damn the drabble format... I had more I wanted to do in that one, but I just can't make it fit.

If anybody else wants to request something or an additional drabble to what I've already written, I'm still keeping it open just because I've discovered I really like writing these things. Expect more of the silly little buggers in the future. ;)

Got a bunch of painting done on the Domesday Book laste night after finishing my homework, and now I think I'm gonna play with the fic for a bit before I head off for lunch and class.

Two drabbles for [livejournal.com profile] narsilion: Request #1 was Fred and George trying to pick up a Muggle girl.

How Not to Date Muggle Girls )

Request #2 was Joe and Methos talking about one of Joe's bad experiences in Vietnam.

Old Soldiers )

And one for [livejournal.com profile] zinjadu, X-Files, with the prompt "Mulder, Scully, and an agreement."

The Age-Old Debate )
