Fic: Catharsis, Chapter 2 (Star Trek TOS, Spock/McCoy, Kirk)
garak
babel
Title: Catharsis, Chapter 2
Characters: Leonard McCoy/Spock, Kirk
Timeline: Before and after The Naked Time
Rating: PG-13 (Higher in later chapters.)
Warnings: Canon death.
Length: 4,893 words
Notes: This story follows canon very closely, so if you need a memory refresher on The Naked Time; The crew of the Enterprise is infected by a the 'water' on Psi 2000 that has transformed into a complex chain of molecules and intoxicates people when touched. Spock had an emotional outburst when he was infected, but was eventually able to control it.

Summary: The division between emotion and logic is not as clear as either McCoy or Spock would like to think. Both men struggle to balance the past with the present and their desires with their duties. (This story will follow the relationship between McCoy and Spock throughout season one, sticking closely to canon events.)

Timeline: After The Man Trap
Rating: PG-13 (Higher in later chapters.)
Warnings: Canon death.
Length: 7,303 words
Notes: This story follows canon very closely, so if you need a memory refresher on The Man Trap; McCoy meets up with his old love Nancy, who is now married to a scientist on a deserted planet. However, Nancy turns out to be dead, and a shape-shifting creature has taken her place. McCoy is forced to kill the creature when it tries to kill Kirk.


Summary: The division between emotion and logic is not as clear as either McCoy or Spock would like to think. Both men struggle to balance the past with the present and their desires with their duties. (This story will follow the relationship between McCoy and Spock throughout season one, sticking closely to canon events.)

Chapter 1: Lost ChancesCollapse )


Reasons why you should watch Homeland.

So, recently I watched the show Homeland which just finished its first season (and is already renewed for the next one) because I'm on a Damian Lewis kick. And it is amazing, so I want to convince everyone else to watch it.

First, a brief synopsis: Sgt Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) is rescued after 8 years as a prisoner of war in Iraq and comes home a hero, but CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) thinks that he has been turned and is now working for al-Qaeda.

But here's why you should watch it:

I got a little verbose.Collapse )

Updates, I guess.

- Rangers lost the World Series twice in a row. Well, I suppose that's something of an accomplishment?

- My life is RPing and Sims, because I don't have an actual life. Avoidant personality in full force, my friends.

- Trying to do NaNo, but motivation is low. I need to try harder. First step would be to clean up my room a bit. I always write better in organized spaces.

- I really love American Horror Story, even though it is so stupid and occasionally offensive. But with those show creators, that's basically what I expected.

- Pretty sure this string of depressions since last March (as in 2010) is really just one long depression with the occasional break. Fun~

Mostly Heroes rambling. Shocking.

So, I've been in Philadelphia since Thursday for a wedding, and it was lovely and stuff. But I just realized that I gave a bunch of neato cool smart people my LJ name, and that my LJ currently has the most absurdly garish design humanly possible. I APOLOGIZE FOR YOUR EYES, WHOEVER OF YOU MAY HAVE LOOKED UPON ALL THE PASTEL FIGURE SKATER. The fact that I made it ridiculous on purpose may not actually help my cause. Oh well.

I should go to sleep, since everyone else in the house is, but I want to ramble about Heroes for a while instead.

NO ONE CARES, BABEL.Collapse )

Okay I am. So tired. And rambling. I'm going to bed now bye.

ETA: Look at this fierce bitch who played Sylar's bio mom:



WHY DIDN'T WE GET MORE OF HER? Also, we can clearly thank Mama Gray for Sylar's eyebrows.
