Autumn: Road (Winding)

From the thefridayfive

1. If you had to choose being blind or deaf, what would you choose and why?

To be deaf. Because as much as I love music and TV shows, etc. My world is far more visual than auditory. So much of my life revolves around writing, emailing, LJing, surfing the web, watching the shows I love, etc. and reading. Not to mention the fact that being disabled and using two crutches to walk, being blind would be highly dangerous for me in the way that being deaf wouldn't be; I need to be able to see where I'm going, what I'm about to trip over, walk into in order to get around without falling over. Without sight I'd be completely lost.

2. What is the best smell?

That's a difficult one, it depends on so many things. So I'm going to cheat: Fresh bread is lovely. Spring blossom and flowers too. And the sea.

3. Would you rather be hot or cold?

Cold, no question about it. I hate the heat, and I hate being hot, I find it very draining and tiring and extremely hard going.

4. What's the worst feeling in the world?

Knowing that you are completely and utterly alone and nothing can be done about it.

5. Would you rather have something hurt or something be itchy?

Something hurting. Because at the least that can be a private thing. If you are itching and have to keep scratching it can be very public. And given that I know what it's like to live in constant pain and I also suffer, from time to time, from itching sessions (caused by the Morphine), I have first hand experience of both. I'll choose the pain, thank you very much.

12_stories Challenge Index Table 'Dark' - Misc Pairings

As aingeal8c very cleverly spotted one of my reasons for staring 12_stories was because I was fed up of waiting for the Mod of tentinyfandoms to actually approve my claim (I think that six weeks, especially when said Mod is posting fairly long and complicated posts to her own LJ on an almost daily basis is excessive).

My 12_stories table that mixes my minority, haven't-written-for-years pairings along with pairings I have wanted to try my hand at, as I've had one idea for a story stemming from an episode, but don't regard as fandoms per se. So I am going to write one story for each pairing and I have, which I suspect will come to a surprise to some, chosen the Dark Table (glares at EB6).

My pairings/fandoms are:

Abby/McGee (NCIS)
Buffy/Angel (Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Angel The Series)
Dalgliesh/Massingham (The Dalgliesh Mysteries)
Duncan/Methos (Highlander)
Fraser/Vecchio (Due South)
Hawkeye/BJ (M*A*S*H)
Holmes/Watson (Sherlock Holmes)
Lynley/Havers (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries)
Neil/Willie (The Sandbaggers)
Raffles/Bunny (Raffles)
Silver/Steel (Sapphire & Steel)
Starsky/Hutch (Starsky & Hutch)

Feeling quite chuffed

Courtesy of a story I posted yesterday, I have now used all twenty-six letters of the alphabet for story titles.

I now have at least one story beginning with each letter of the alphabet for my fandoms over all; and within this, at least one story beginning with each letter of the alphabet for Gibbs/Ducky.
