Clearing out the cobwebs

Well, I didn't realize how long it's been since I've been here. The other night at work I came across an unfinished fanfic, and I'm thinking of diving back into the Numb3rs fanfic world to finish it up. I haven't updated it in over 4 years! A lot of work went into the 23 chapters I posted, and I really don't want to leave it unfinished.

Media Bingo entry for Caseland - Theme Romance

Drabble: Handcuffs

After two days of FBI training, Charlie Eppes could hardly walk, and other than the firing range, he had failed at every aspect of Don’s job.

When it was finally time for bed that night he smiled slyly as he locked the bedroom door behind him. Amita looked quizzically at him. “What?” she said.

Charlie reached into his pocket and produced a pair of FBI handcuffs. He snapped one cuff onto his left wrist and held out his hand toward Amita. “I surrender.”

The next morning, a very embarrassed Charlie called his brother and begged him for a handcuff key.

Meta: Your choice (jumping the shark)

Many TV shows rely on sexual tension. A large part of their fandoms want the couple in question to FINALLY get together. Another part of the fandoms are afraid that once the sexual tension is resolved, there won’t be anything interesting left in the show.

Seeley Booth and “Bones” Brennan have spent six seasons coming “this close” to getting together. Both have had serious but brief relationships with others, but they always end up making their fans think that this time they’ll realize they’re more than partners.

But if they do finally fall in love, will that ruin the show? I don’t believe it will. Jack Hodgins and Angela Montenegro have fallen in and out and back into love, gotten married after a few false starts, and are now a happy if unconventional couple.

Would it work as well with Booth and Bones? Or would marriage change their great working relationship? The writers of this show have done some pretty awful things to their fans (Zack Addy), and yet we keep on coming back.

I’m a sucker for “happily ever after” endings, but I don’t trust the folks at “Bones” to give us one.

2 Drabbles "Resolution"

These two drabbles were written for the caseland challenge "Resolution"

Drabble #1

“Can you improve the resolution?” Charlie Eppes asked as he looked over Amita’s shoulder.

Resolution, he thought as she made the changes to the program. It was two weeks after New Year’s, and he hadn’t acted on his resolution yet. It had been over a year since Amita had been his student. He had intended to ask her out, but the timing never seemed right. New Year’s Eve, as he had sipped his champagne and watched the ball drop in Time’s Square, he’d resolved to finally ask her. He decided to ask while they were leaving the FBI office tonight.

Drabble #2

“Can you improve the resolution?” Charlie asked as he looked over Amita Ramanujan’s shoulder.

As she made the changes, she pondered. Resolution. She’d waited over a year for Charlie to ask her out. She wasn’t his student now, so nothing prevented him from asking. And yet he hadn’t. Well, this year she had resolved to stop waiting for him. This year, Amita Ramanujan was officially single again. In fact, she thought as she stole a glance at the time, if they finished this task soon, she could still make it home in time to change before Jason picked her up.

Fic: "Scary"

Don & Charlie Eppes kidfic

Four year old Charlie Eppes stared wide eyed at his mother and shook his head. “Mommy, it’s scary. I don’t wanna go.”

Donnie Eppes, a very mature nine years old, put his hand on his brother’s shoulder. “It’s okay, Chuck, I’ll be with you.”

“Don’t call me Chuck,” Charlie said, pulling away from Donnie’s hand. “I don’t like tricky treatin’. You go ahead. I’ll stay home with mommy and hand out candy.”

“But you had fun last year,” Margaret said. “Remember all the candy you brought home? And you got to dress up as the Count. The costume was a little big last year, so it should fit you just fine tonight.”

Charlie shook his head again. “No. It’s gonna be scary.” His lip trembled as he met Donnie’s gaze. “You know. Like the movie.”

Donnie’s mouth dropped open. Busted.

“Donald Alan Eppes,” Margaret growled, “What do you know about this?”

Donnie took a deep breath and met his mother’s fierce gaze. “I didn’t do nothing.”

“Anything. You didn’t do anything,” Margaret corrected automatically. “So what did you do?”

Donnie bit back the smart aleck answer. He knew when Mom put on her lawyer face it wasn’t worth mouthing off to her. He heaved a long sigh. “I was watching a movie with some friends, and Charlie joined us.”

“What movie?” Margaret demanded.

“’Halloween’,” Don muttered as he gazed down at his feet. “Am I gonna be grounded?”

Margaret looked at her two boys and pondered her options. Finally, she said, “Okay, here’s what’s going to happen. You’re going to convince your brother that nothing in that movie was real, that you are going to stick with him like glue and that nothing, NOTHING will hurt him if he goes trick or treating with you tonight. If you don’t manage to do that, you will be grounded tonight.”

Charlie looked nervously at Donnie.

“And to make sure you don’t browbeat him into going with you tonight, I am going to witness the whole conversation. Sit, both of you.”

It took only half an hour and a lot of groveling and promises, but Donnie finally convinced Charlie that nothing was going to happen to him if he went trick or treating. Margaret hugged both boys. “Charlie, go get your costume. It’s in your closet in the blue bin. Donnie, we need to talk for a minute.”

After Charlie left, Donnie said, “I’m sorry, Mommy. I didn’t think a stupid movie would bother Charlie like that. I’m gonna be more careful from now on.”

Margaret smiled. “You’re not going to watch any more horror movies until you’re thirteen.”

“That’s four years! That’s forever!”

Margaret ruffled Donnie’s hair. “You’ll live. Now go get ready.”

Why am I in a pissy mood today?

Is it because the Yankees lost and the Bills looked like they were finally going to win a game, and are now losing? Is it because a fanfic comm that was different from all other comms is in the process of changing to the point where it'll be just like thousands of other comms on LJ? When I mentioned that in the comm, I managed to piss off the owner of the comm and at least 2 other members. Now I just wish I hadn't said anything, but it's too late now. It's probably just a combination of all these things on top of a couple of emotionally draining weeks.

I need something to lose myself in.
