It's just easier not to post, and people get busy, but I figure since I still check in on the flist daily I should maybe contribute some words as well.

My flist has certainly gotten quieter. I remember when I could not keep up! Primarily that was the SPN fandom - my S&H friends were never that loud on LJ. S&H for me was a yahoo groups thing, though the [livejournal.com profile] starsky_hutch LJ comm helped me migrate here.

I also remember the frustration of trying to download ALL THOSE SPN stories, and clicking what occasionally amounted to a ridiculous number of entries and continued entries to get at a whole verse. Do you know I used to copy/paste stories in MS word and save them as docs? I bet more than a few of us did. I mean, I have tons of stories still on my computer in doc format. So much work! I tried to keep up, which was impossible really.

Before LJ, I was immersed in S&H stories, and by God I PRINTED those out. Still have a bookshelf full of the printouts, and then another shelf of the printed zines (including my own two) in my bedroom.

Unrelated, but: SPN's Jeremy Carver is such a disappointing shower runner for me. I was afraid of him after I couldn't for the life of me keep interest in the last show he ran (Being Human), though I loved the original British version (first three seasons, anyway). Sucks because of gems like SPN Christmas ep and the like. He still can write some killer episodes on occasion (I loved S8 ender ep). So anyway, when I get an episode I really enjoy as opposed to it being merely watchable, it makes me happy. I enjoyed, so much, the Sam POV we got last episodes in "Book of the Damned" and "The Werther Project." I like how Sam and Dean have been really together and in the lovely, unhealthily codependent relationship I know and love.

Oh, story rec: The Outlaw Torn by LaughableLament. Old school first-time with plenty of UST until it's, well, resolved:) Expertly written in my opinion, classic in all the best ways of good Wincest fiction. Killer Dean voice, Sammy the irrestible tease and always, always, the clever, irritating little brother.

Another thing: I looked forward with great anticipation to the premiere of Orphan Black, a thing that was handily trashed when my phobia regarding eyes/eye damage sent me into a panicked fit. Made me pretty sick and upset that day. I try to avoid seeing that stuff, but that shit don't come with warnings.

Whew, plenty of rambling! I guess I posted then, yeah?

I'm sitting here waiting for it to be time for Girls Night, and it occurs to me that my dear bestie made me a promise last week while we were doing Girls Night stuff: if I finish writing the three stories that come next in my Starsky and Hutch series, she will write S & H for me. I believe it was 15,000 words she said.

I'm not saying these things will come to pass any time soon, but I figure the deal should be recorded for posterity.

I had to think a bit about this final day - something I'm really proud of? I am proud of some of my work when I do it, but later on I pick it to death, or doubt if it's good, you know? So for me I'd say it's hard to maintain that sort of positivity over the long haul. There's a couple of stories that I like quite a bit, a couple of vids I'm fond of, but out and out proud? I just don't know. But then I remembered my second (and last) zine! A massive Starsky and Hutch anthology entitled Blood and Destiny.

I stayed up way too late for months in a row, learning layout and how to do bleeds for print, and editing (I WISH I hadn't been quite so anti-comma at the time, but oh, well) - the point is, I ended up with a 550 page (293,000 word count) Starsky & Hutch anthology: a perfect bound, paperback book.

I learned a lot, worked with a lot of talented people, including Sonja T, my lovely friend who does most of the artwork for my original fiction nowadays. She put in an incredible number of art pieces into the zine, over twenty (and she did almost as many for the first zine I did). I had some brilliant writers participate in the anthology with seventeen new stories, trivia and reprints. It was truly a learning experience, and I'm proud of the book and of the work and skill of the participants involved.

My old vids are up at a03 (via embeds from youtube and one from vimeo). Many of them aren't very good, but they all have heart - and some are still fun. You can find them here at a03 (10 Starsky & Hutch, 1 Dante's Cove, 1 Planet of the Apes TV series, 1 Alias Smith and Jones)

Yesterday I rushed around, trying to get some last minute things done, and then I and the usual suspects got together early and watched lots and lots of shows. It was a real treat because there's NO TIME to do that anymore, but we made the time. It was at one point a 70s love-in. Planet of the Apes tv series (The Interrogation), Alias Smith & Jones (Smiler With a Gun - one of their most serious, well-written, well-acted episodes, with Grandpa from The Waltons in it), Starsky & Hutch (The Fix, yes - I can just about speak along with the actors at this point), Logan's Run, the tv series (bootleg copy of the Pilot - so, so bad it's ... well, it's bad in that good way that bad shows with eye-rolling laser beams and tin "glider" vehicles with wheel covers so you don't see the wheels can be, and a very young Gregory... um, Harrison? The guy who was on Trapper John? as the star).

We also saw Blood Ties (awesome, powerful female lead and also: vampire torture), Battlestar Galactica (the one where Leoben is interrogated by Starbuck), Legend of the Seeker (I don't know her name, but it had the anti-Jeannie chick with the long blonde braid and she'd strung Richard up and poked him with A STICK) and Supernatural (Mystery Spot, I will never not love it). And the season one finale of The Borgias. And there was hot apple juice with cinnamon, cloves and brandy. Ah, it makes the whole house smell wonderful. And we had a couple of folks stay the night.

And Yuletide reveals are here, and [livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k , I'm kind of mortified. I did NOT recognize you as my POTA author, which is so insane because of how I've read and examined your stories so much, but it wasn't Pete whump and it was kind of a solemn thing, something the series could have expanded upon, and anyway I'm feeling foolish. But I want to give you a big hug and tell you how much I appreciate the gift!  And how glad I am we're back in touch, so much:))) And then there's , , , and for their lovely, original gifts to me. I enjoyed my plenitude of gifts very VERY much.

And I can tell you I wrote two stories! Something in the Guns - The Walking Dead (tv series) fandom, with Daryl Dixon and Andrea featured; and The Beating of Her Bound Heart - my take on Little Red Riding Hood, dark and definitely a revisionist take. I had lots of fun, and then I did something thoughtless, though my intentions were actually good, and felt very bad for it. But I'd rather leave that behind now.

Happiest of New Years to you all. Last year was pretty much, uh, not good, so here's hoping for better.

It's too late, but maybe next year: why haven't we nominated Starsky & Hutch RPF for Yuletide, huh? Look at them!

I'm  faviconkassidy on the AO3. I'm a big fan of the clean look of the fictions uploaded at the archive, and I love being able to download stories in mobi, epub, html and pdf formats. AO3 is now offering a subscription feature, too.

My fandoms include Supernatural and Starsky & Hutch, with one-shots in Låt den rätte komma in | Let the Right One In (2008), Alias Smith and Jones, Lonesome DoveDark Blue, Dante's Cove, Long Walk - Stephen King, and Californication (with Callum Keith Rennie!). Early fandom writing includes Planet of the Apes (TV series) (Burke and Virdon and Galen ftw!) and some truly interesting fiction attempts in my very first online fandom, Charmed. And here I always thought I was a 'one fandom at a time' fan.

If I can find it, I might post up a short little slash RPS story I did with David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser, in celebration/at the urging of the AO3 to have us post our old fics at the archive. Traditionally, RPS hasn't been well received in the S&H fandom, but the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] peg22 opened that up a bit. 

(You'll need to log in to see the subscribe button, btw.)

This was written a few years ago - it was intended for a zine, but it didn't happen. I converted the story to an original fiction, but thought I'd post it here in case some of my S&H friends want to read it. It's set during MOONSHINE, right after Hutch and Mr. Drunk As Hell Starsky leave the bar:)

Most definitely slash.

Thanks to a currently flocked flister (waves to flister - shall I bring you a pie with a file;), I followed directions posted at youtubulous on how to sub a dispute based on fair use for "Nothing Else Matters." The video came up live immediately afterwards. I hope it stays - I do think the vid is kind of long and even ponderous, but it fits S&H like a glove iffin I say so myself.

I'll let you know what happens.

Mirien's "The Days Worth Living" - a feel good S&H vid with bittersweet moments. 

Starsky's drunk and BURROWING into Hutch's arm in the car - a scene from Moonshine. Also, Hutch's shirt spread open earlier in the bar scene, and his chest is bare and brown and teh pretty. Also, he catches Starsky when he falls down with this great matter-of-fact exasperation.

When Hutch throws Starsky over in the wrestling ring, he does it with such ENTHUSIASM. His whole body flies over and WHUMPS Starsk to the ring floor.

The baffled look on Starsky's face when the bomb blows and throws him into Hutch's arms.

From Playboy Island, the boys are standing there in their ridiculous costumes, and Hutch has his hands in his pockets, this sly look on his face. He looks about 12. He looks like Tom Sawyer unleashed. 

Right after that scene, Hutch jogs up to the Torino, and Starsky's in shorts and his zipper's down at his navel, approximately. A good moment for the universe.

Near the end, Starsky's in the hospital bed, Hutch is under the sheets (things that make you go !!!!) and the nurse peeks in. Starsky's clutching the silver platter thingum full of food, looking sheepish. Very endearing.

Thanks to Mirien for the vid. I loves the vidders:)
