Chest Cold

Hit like a ton of bricks in the middle of the night last night.  Woke myself up coughing.

Applied suitable chemicals.  Read Burn Notice novel until I couldn't stay vertical anymore and then kinda sorta coughed my way back to sleep.

Have a lump of cold concrete in the top of my lungs.  Grrrreeeeeat.

No fever.  No body aches.  No oinking.  Thank gods for small favours.

Awoke to new pup being approved.  Welcome Earl ([ profile] longtonguedog ).

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it probably make a big ol' comment about it, unless it's so big that I have to write a post. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on slash, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

And?  New pup.  Okay, old pup, but new LJ.

[character] Fiona Glenanne
[character lj] [ profile] justcallmefee
[canon] Burn Notice

[muse strength] Loud. Annoyingly loud. Bored girl with bombs wandering around in my skull.

[cast strength] None. (Someone needs to app Sam, because that would be AWESOME, and I can't do Bruce Campbell to save my life.)

[current events] Breakup with Max has Fi pretty broken. I can't tell you how much this sucks with a headvoice as loud as Fi.

[future plans] ADVENTURE. Oh and tequila.

[misc.] Fi is currently playing pool with Grace Hanadarko. This makes me very happy.

[character] Dr. River Song
[character lj] [ profile] riversinger
[canon] Doctor Who

[muse strength] River is a strong, but quiet head voice. She is centred and serene, and just a joy to write.

[cast strength] Legions, but I've only met a handful.

[current events] River & Ryan([ profile] captainryan) have hit it off famously. Let's just leave it at that, shall we?

[future plans]
Research, wolf snuggles, ADVENTURE.

The nature of her death/post-life existence makes this character a bit more existential than I was expecting. She also is turning out to have that open-eyed sense of wonder that I do so love about the Doctor. Steven Moffat's hand is heavy on her, and I'm trying to let that part of her shine through. (Moffat wrote the Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, with the creepy kid in the gas mask, that ends with Nine shouting, "Just this once, everybody LIVES!")

[character] Olga
[character lj] [ profile] olyabird
[canon] Night Watch / Nochnoi Dozor (Russian urban fantasy)

[muse strength] Strong, but not really vocal.

[cast strength]

[current events] Nothing, because I haven't gotten her out more.

[future plans] Would really like to plot some mayhem for her.

[misc.] I know not a lot of people know her canon, and that makes it difficult to get to know her. She's also very Russian, post-Soviet cynical, hard drinking, almost insolent, which is almost offensive to some American types. She's really self-contained. But hey, she's trying. (Right, Ben W.?)

[character] Bryan Mills
[character lj] [ profile] particularskill
[canon] Taken

[muse strength] Strong and steady. Another delightfully serene headspace to be in.

[cast strength]

[current events] Mills has offered to train Ellen ([ profile] aaaaaaaagh_sky) in hand to hand combat. He's also having a sit down with Ryan ([ profile] captainryan), seeing who can out not-speak the other. Mills also met Will Scarlet ([ profile] will_scarlett) and remembered that he once played Little John in a play.

[future plans]
No plans as yet, but Mills is loving the bar and just hanging out.

You guys killed me with his first EP, in a totally good way. I did not expect to get such a fabulous reception. My first threadzilla! THANK YOU. (Truth be told, I have kind of balked at EP'ing the next character because she's heavy lifting compared to Mills.)

[character] Vert (aka La Feé Verte)
[character lj] [ profile] justonesip
[canon] Myth and legend

[muse strength] Vert is elusive, but strong when I find her.

[cast strength]
from this particular corner of myth and legend, not many, but I'm writing connections with the ancient Greek

[current events] Hovering in the dark corners of the bar, watching you lot with great interest.

[future plans]
I think Vert would work like the Tarot Cards, because her company offers a very special opportunity for interacting characters to find their inspiration (or their madness, depending on how long someone stays).

Vert is a real challenge to write, because she's not human. The visual effects are a huge part of her personality, and y'know, how many words are there for the colour green anyway!? ~sigh~ (Also, her début in MM with Tiwa was kind of the perfect thread, and I'm afraid anything else I write with her won't begin to measure up.) Anyway, if you want to thread with her, please feel free to drop me a line.
