A meme, to keep the gray matter going.

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or fewer for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

My list:

1. Mary Morstan (Ritchieverse)
2. Liz Lemon
3. Captain Monterey Jack
4. Reboot Kirk
5. Marita Covarrubias
6. Ellen Fanshaw
7. Death (Sandman)
8. Dana Whittaker
9. Fran Katzenjammer
10. Benedick

Take one down, pass it around )

That was quite diverting. Your turn...

The Most Lamentable Comedy of Richard Smith-Jones (Slings & Arrows!) by [ profile] isiscolo, because this is the essence of Richard and his relationships with everybody/New Burbage/theater/himself, set to Smash Mouth's "All Star" (which you will recognize as the perfect song choice when you watch the vid). It's smart and quite character-arc-y and sly.

The common thread between these two recs is that all I have to do is give a brief sort of log-line description of the item at hand and you will instantly understand how awesome it is, and you will be correct.

1) It's a Firefly vid. The title is Secret Asian Man.

2) Actually I think all that's necessary to promote Better A Fallen Rocket is to repeat the description [ profile] likethesun2 gave me over Indian food when she was working on it: "Geoffrey's in the mental institution, where the only person who visits him is Cheryl, and he's staging a production of Tom Stoppard's The Invention of Love in his head."

We have the flu.

Actually I think I am slowly mending, though I am not yet mentally acute enough to do things like tackle [ profile] likethesun2's giant new S&A story but that should not stop any of YOU from doing so.

Speaking of S&A, whilst zoning out vaguely absorbing information from the intertubes today I discovered that Daniel Day-Lewis, in the title role of Hamlet in 1989, had a nervous breakdown and departed the show in the middle of a performance.

Was I the last person to know about this?

Now with authors!

Dude, everyone was right about Those That Play Your Clowns it's SO GOOD. And I thought I had it narrowed down to a couple of you guys, not that I have everyone who writes S&A friended but I still had a preeeetty good idea who the culprit was...but now I think everyone I guessed for it either has recced it or--you damn kids and your "finals"--didn't actually do Yuletide this year. I'll have to go combing through y'all's recs again to make sure. (PS GO READ IT)
Oh, of course it's by [ profile] tangleofthorns. (I called it, but only because [ profile] mandysbitch gave me a hint.)

Oh, and while we're here, another Black Books rec, and all your girlfriends are unfulfilled and alienated by [ profile] hobviously. (It's not a complete non-sequitur. I have occasionally described Bernard Black as being not unlike an Irish Geoffrey Tennant without the talent.) I'll just repeat the comment I left on it: It's very funny and canon-like, but also finds another angle on the show that's more grown-up and bittersweet while still in character. I think this is now my personal canon for what happened that fateful night.

Doesn't anyone have S3 of Slings & Arrows taped? I'm so afeard that people will come along and spoil me before I can see it...

Okay, I have a question about Frank and Cyril. (I'll put it under a cut since there's a bit of incidental information from Season 2, but nothing truly spoilery.)

Note: I have not yet seen Season 3, so if the answer is "Oh, they explain that in Season 3," please do go ahead and say that. And, you know, say only that. :)

Beseech you, sir, were you present at this relation? )
