Author has written 23 stories for X-Files, Sentinel, Ouran High School Host Club, Rat Patrol, Harry Potter, Man From UNCLE, Magnificent Seven, MacGyver, Misc. Books, Rurouni Kenshin, Clamp, and Gatchaman.
DarkBeta because, when i reviewed a friend's light humor pieces for Harry Potter, tragedy and philosophy kept crawling in.
My seven favorite authors: Madeline Brent, John Buchan, Lois McMaster Bujold, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Janet Kagan, Peter O'Donnell, Mary Jo Putney, and Sharon Shinn
All the universes i play in belong to their creators (and, legally, to their distributors). I claim nothing; i own nothing; i am without attachments. (Media-wise, anyhow. I'm nowhere near a personal satori.)
August 2012: Self-San, who is echoingthedepth on DeviantArt, has created several images for "The Hunter and the Ouran Hosts". (DarkBeta keels over in shock and astonishment.) They are amazing graphics! (More keeling over.) Look for:
Bunny Adoptions (i shan't write them; maybe somebody somewhere will)
-- "My name is Angus MacGyver of the Clan MacGyver. Look, can we talk about this?" (and Methos in the background shouting, "Mac -- no, the other Mac! -- drop the katana and back away. He's got a penknife!")
-- the William Morris poem, "The Haystack in the Floods" done as an X-files fic. Mulder and Scully fleeing through the heartland, sold out by the Lone Gunmen, Cancerman giving Scully the choice between life as a researcher and life as a research subject . . . . "Had she come all the way for this / to part at last without a kiss . . . that her own eyes might see him slain / beside the haystack in the floods?"
-- Rurouni Kenshin/Sherlock Holmes TOS cross-over: post-Reichenbach and pre-Return, Holmes passes thru Nippon on the way to Tibet.
-- The four Melendy children open the papered-over room at the top of the Four Story Mistake, and find in it an applewood wardrobe bought from a country estate in Britain on the way home from a European tour.
-- The castaway boy from Randall Jarrell's The Animal Family (which i'm certain occurs somewhere on Narnia's margins) was Prince Cor.
"If that's what you think, you've got another thing coming." It's supposed to be: "If that's what you think, you've got another think coming," i.e. the first 'think' was defective so you're due a replacement. Ungrammatical, but mildly amusing. "If that's what you think, you've got another thing coming," doesn't mean anything at all!
You can defuse an argument, and diffuse scent, but if your character can't defuse the bomb it's going to diffuse itself, all over the place!
"They're on their way there" is correct, but if you switch homonyms around it isn't.
And i'm really embarassed to mention that rogues may wear rouge, but rouge almost never goes rogue.
