Author has written 4 stories for House, M.D..
Wow! I just noticed I've been on here since 2005 and never wrote a profile bio! Sometime around then I wrote my first ever fanfiction for Star Trek DS9 and somebody flamed it so bad that I took it right down in tears! For years I didn't write again, I felt so humiliated. (She said she couldn't finish it as it made her want to throw up, and she had been my fanfiction idol! She had even given me her personal email but, she couldn't tell by my pen name that I was the same person. Everyone else who reviewed loved it but I was heartbroken! I can't even read her fantastic DS9 stories anymore! :-( )
So I plead for all reviewers to keep in mind that very few of us on here are professional writers...it's pretty loathsome behavior to nip someone's dreams in the bud with unnecessary and deconstructive criticism. It's one thing to give helpful advice and it's entirely something else to be a flaming monster. I have never given someone a bad review. I feel that if I can't give any constructive advice and really don't like the story then it's pointless for me to review. Why should I ruin someone's day just to say, "Hey I can't help your writing but just wanted to let you know I hated your story!"?
Enough of that! :-) I'm in my mid fifties now and was the World's Biggest House Fan and shall ever remain a devoted fan of Hugh Laurie! I love his acting, his comedy, his music, his to die for British accent, and his gentlemanly behavior. I adore his pal, Stephen Fry who is a friend of my son's. He even came here to Michigan and took my son and his college pals out to dinner at a Mongolian BBQ! I have severe depression so I'm so grateful to both Hugh and Stephen for speaking out about depression. I believe they are saving lives!
Now my second favorite TV series is about to end, White Collar, with the gorgeous and delightful Matt Bomer and handsome Tim DeKay! I hope to God it ends happy although Matt says it will end 'open-ended'... I loved Matt in Chuck, and the short-lived Traveler series, Magic Mike and, of course, the tearful The Normal Heart with Matt Ruffalo! If you haven't seen that magnificent HBO made for TV movie, you must! Especially if you are young and have no idea of the way gays and AIDS victims were treated in this country when the AIDS crisis first began! (Thousands were left to die horrible deaths because the Reagan administration took forever to even officially recognize it!) And today, LGBT folk are treated miserably in many places in our country. In 29 states, even where same sex marriage is legal, you can be fired or evicted for the sole reason of being gay if you are discovered. There are over 1,100 rights that heterosexual couples get automatically that homosexual couples are denied when they can't get legally married. I admire Matt Bomer for coming out even when it could have hurt his career. He has a wonderful husband and three little boys. Why would anyone want to deny another human being that happiness simply because they are gay? It's unconscionable.
I have loved many other series throughout my half century: The Rookies, Starsky and Hutch, Emergency, The A-Team, Battlestar Galactica ( I loved Dirk Benedict!) , The Mod Squad (yes, I'm that old!) and every Star Trek series (except Voyager...just couldn't get into it and don't know why) DS9 was my favorite and of course, I got my pen name from Alexander Siddig who played Dr. Julian Bashir on that series. I watched the classic Trek at my daddy's knee at its original airing (did I mention I'm old?). I loved MacMillan and Wife and Hart to Hart (can't seem to find much fanfiction on them). I loved It Takes a Thief and The Prisoner, and Secret Agent Man (black and white old Patrick McGoohan series). One of my favorite series was Counterstrike with the late Simon MacCorkindale, a gorgeous man! I loved the British medical series, Casualty, which Simon was also in. I love Doctor Who and my favorite doctor was Tom Baker. I've lost track of that series now. I don't have television anymore so I'm missing all the new ones. It was either have enough money for cablevision or Internet. but not both if I want to eat. Living on disability alone does not bring riches. I opted for Internet because there's a lot I can watch on that. I loved Murder She Wrote, Matlock, Columbo, McCloud, Nero Wolfe, Ellery Queen, and a whole bunch of series none of you young pups will probably recognize now. I could go on and on...
Thank you for the lovely and kind reviews you have given me so far and I hope when I'm feeling a bit better I will write some more. I've been disabled for many years and am still on the rocky road to recovery. Prayers are appreciated! (I don't care what your Higher Power is! If you have no Higher Power, just send good thoughts my way!) I'm still very active on this site as you can see that I have over 1,000 favorites! Lol! Thank you for keeping me entertained!
Blessings to you all! Siddigfan
