[personal profile] bell posting in [community profile] housebigbangers

I know most of you probably aren't thinking of your [ profile] house_bigbang fic yet, since the deadline is so wonderfully and gently far away, but I speak of it anyway. This year's [ profile] sgabigbang mods helped the writers band themselves in support groups, and, personally it worked great; I made some great friends, got a lot of emotional and technical support in writing my story, and helped others.

I thought we could do something along the same lines here, if a bit more informally. If you're interested in meeting & talking to other bigbangers, leave a comment, or reply to someone else's comment. And this isn't just for the writers-- if you're an artist, or want to participate as a cheerleader or beta, please join in on the fray!

Information you may want to include in your comment: name, age, planned story/participation, means of contact (email and/or chat), favorite pairings, kinds of stories you like, kind of support group/buddies you'd like, favorite House moments, pet peeves (fictional or otherwise), and whatever else comes to mind. :)

If you need someone to bounce story ideas from or listening to you rant about your fic(s) I'll be here for you. ^^
I understand how it is to need a second ear to help you set your fic right.
I'll listen to your fic ranting if you'll listen to mine :)

name: Amy
age: 26
planned story: I am writing a multiple crossover fic: House/Batman/Arrested Development.
contact: aim - Sodiumbisulfite or Cheezypoofstweek

fic I like: I read House/Wilson, and I prefer angst to fluff. And I like it when Wilson is the one crying lol

Id love some support groups that will make sure to kick my butt into gear eventually, because I know how I am, and I have a PhD in slacking. Oh, and a group with a good sense of humor would be great, since I have a feeling my fic may be a bit...unconventional lol

Favorite House Moments: When House is wearing that tie in court. And that whole Tritter nonsense. The angst, the angst

Pet peeves: When people call Wilson Jimmy. And for some reason the phrase "scissoring his fingers" in reference to sex bothers me too. :( maybe Im intolerant

I love your icon. And, yeah, calling Wilson Jimmy is annoying. Or any first name business that doesn't make sense in the character's relationships. And spelling Greg with three g's: Gregg. Is that even an acceptable variation of the name, or what?

I'm willing to help you out, as I love anything unconventional. I will admit, I haven't seen Arrested Development. (I've been marathoning House and Entourage...lame, I know.) What Batman 'verse are you using? Comics or movies? Either way, it's awesome, but picturing Christian Bale and Hugh Laurie together kinda makes me squee like a little fangirl.

name: Kit
age: 19
planned story/participation: Fic, >o< I still haven't completely decided on what to write! My running idea right now is something like an hostile government world where House is the only member of the rebellion and Wilson and Cuddy are on the opposing side. Takes place after season 3, but then there's all the issues of plausibility...
means of contact: MSN, AIM, e-mail, LJ (of course)
favorite pairings: House/Wilson, House/Cuddy, House/Cuddy/Wilson, various duckling pairings.
kinds of stories you like: AUs, any genre basically...
kind of support group/buddies you'd like: People I can discuss fic ideas and issues with. Also, someone who checks the plausibility of such ideas, keep my story somewhat realistic...
favorite House moments: When House shows his humanity XD

Mm, AU. I'd definitely love to help you bounce off ideas. Your fic has the potential to be very interesting. My email is bridgetmkennitt [at] insanejournal [dot] com. I also have AIM.

Favorite Pairings: Huddy

Planned story: hmm, I haven't got that far yet.

Contact: PM, or my email address is in my profile

Pairing: As my username hints, there's only House/Wilson for me...

Kind of support group/buddies you'd like: sometimes it's nice just to be able to vent, and know there are other people out there going through the same thing!

More specifically, if anybody out there AT ALL thinks that a Stephanie Plum/House crossover would be interesting/appalling then I would love to hear from you. (Or indeed if anyone simply actually knows what I'm talking about, then I would love to hear from you...)

When I read Stephanie Plum/House crossover, it made me smile ear-to-ear. What a great idea, and she lives in New Jersey. Go for it.

I need to add my information to this list, but I'm available to talk Evanovich or vent.

If your planned story has to do with that one AU you wrote with Mr. and Mr. Wilson and their fun, cushy, House M.D.-fantasy life, I will be your cheerleader! (if you want/need one)

Name: Catherine
Planned Story: Something Cuddy-gen. Still very vague right now; possibly a vacation, or a midlife crisis, or a starting-at-childhood fic I started as a response to [ profile] cuddy_fest last year.
Means of Contact: AIM, yahoo email, LJ (username the same for all)
Favorite Pairings: Cuddy-gen, HouseCuddy, HouseWilsonCuddy, WilsonAmber, all combinations thereof
Favorite Stories: Cuddyness, baby!fic (I know. FAIL); so long as House doesn't break down into tears at any point I'm generally good with it
Group/Buddies: Anyone with a good, possibly unbiased? view of Cuddy. I tend to cut her lots and lots of slack; sometimes I need a reminder to touch on her mistakes as well as her awesomeness.
Pet peeves: Spoilers, House-as-baby!daddy, I-love-yous
Favorite Eps: Babies and Bathwater, Three Stories, Forever, Finding Judas, Sports Medicine... others, probably. I'm in the middle of a Season 2/3/4 re-watch fest. ^^

Fave pairings: House/Wilson, House/Wilson/Cuddy. I read others, I don't consider them faves.
Group/Buddies: /shrug. I just like to talk to people about fics.
Pet peeves: Badfic, bad spelling, bad grammar, OOC, complete implausibility.

Kinds of stories you like: Good ones :) If the writing is strong enough, I'll read just about everything, from sap to crack!

Kind of support group you'd like: Anything, from just chatting about the fic in general, to helping out with the plot. I think that I'm the only person doing femslash, so it'd be nice to have someone cheering me on

I do like femmeslash and AUs in general. What sort of AU were you planning? Alternate reality like 'what if?' style or the characters in a completely different universe setting?

Name: Sara, but my pen for this challenge is Viquey

Planned Story: I actually have about 4 different ideas I'm playing with. I'm writing up a whole long post brainstorming on them in my journal right now, 'cause I need to organize it a little bit like that. If you're THAT interested, you can read that whenever I finish it (I've had the "post an entry" form page open for over a day already, still working on it XD; doesn't help that I keep forgetting what stories I was planning). But there's one that's a backstory for Tritter, one that's an AU with all the characters in a schoolhouse/school-seeting, one that's an interpretation of the road trip (that I dreamed up back when we only knew there was a roadtrip and nothing else), and one that's just a fluffy/romantic/comedic/light-drama thing about What Could Have Been with Wilber.

Contact: Preferably here, through LJ, 'cause I'm not good at checking my email. XD But FWIW, my email is

Favourite Pairings: Wilson, Wilson, Wilson, Wilson/House (friendship/gen or otherwise), Wilber, Huddy. I don't have anything majorly against any pairings, although I do dislike Hameron. XD

Favourite Stories: Wilson-centric, showing Wilson in a good light, fluffy, light, witty, angsty, dramatic, anything about House loving Wilson, or Amber loving Wilson, or anyone loving Wilson--notice a trend? XD

Groups/Buddy Interests: Wilson-centric, Wilson-biased, Wilson-loving discussion; story writing/telling and character/character creation discussion; open to rethinking Tritter (XD); lighthearted and humorous and supportive and non-critical. Also, not strict or rigid. I like being loose and going with the flow.

Pet Peeves: Dark!Wilson, Wilson bashing, OOCness, stereotyping, opinionatedness, over-dramatizations, simplifying or skewing or changing a character as if they're not interesting enough as they are, on their own. And a couple other little things. XD

Favourite Episodes: House vs. God, All In, Don't Ever Change, Living the Dream, Son of a Coma Guy, No More Mr. Nice Guy, Wilson's Heart, Histories, uh...others that I can't think of ATM. The Wilson eps, basically. And the Tritter arc, viewed through the lens of my Tritter backstory (although when not viewed like that, unless I'm really in the mood for Wilson!angst, I can't stand it XD).

name: Ticcy
Planned story: House/Cuddy baby fic. Yeah, I know. But this will be a completely different take on it to what the usual take on it is. I'm also toying with the idea of a House/Cuddy cancer fic. Aaaaand... I'm also toying with a House/Wilson kid fic (again, a very different take on it than the usual).
Contact: AIM: hippie trousers; yahoo: dialoneafter909; MSN: Or my email:
Favourite pairings: House/Cuddy, House/Wilson, House/Stacy, House/Amber, House/Cuddy/Wilson, Wilson/Amber, House/Amber/Wilson... I ship them all!
Pet peeves: Cuddy bashing, Cuddy being written OOC, House being written OOC, Wilson being written OOC, Stacy bashing, Stacy being degraded and/or dismissed as an evil bitch whom House hated being with, slash without a purpose, sex for the sake of it, rape fics especially the kind that completely disregard the emotional fallout (which almost all rape fics do), women being used in fics for the sole purpose of making slash happen, epithets.
favourite kinds of stories: Solid writing, well-rounded plot, good characterisation, believability, some realism.
group/buddy interests: People who are open to other pairings beyond their favourite preference. People who don't mind if I ramble on about my ideas, as sometimes my better ideas come out of talking things out, especially when I'm stuck on something.

Hey, Ticcy! If you need someone to ramble at, you can send me an email any time. I'm not on chat, but would be happy to talk through email if you'd like.

Name: Jade

Planned story:... house/chase witness protection; house/foreman sick!house aftermath of Head&Heart; or my backup, an already pretty close to 20k house/wilson fic where wilson's missing brother gets arrested in chicago for drug abuse, a trip to illinois and eventual slash ensue. the H/F one is curently my favorite (aka: the one that i'm not stuck on)

Favourite Pairings: House/Foreman, House/Chase, Huddy though i write it less than the slash ones, and finally H/W, though i haven't been writing much of that since H&H. nearly anything else other than pre-s4 hameron.

Means of Contact: here... or email-- or (i'll reply from the yahoo one, but i'll see/read emails sent to the other one much sooner)

Kinds of stories you like: ...not deathfics? except pre-s4 cameron. have no problem with dead pre-s4 cameron. except if house is getting disporpotionately upset about her dying.

Kind of support group you'd like: uh... someone to read the stuff? don't even have to be a beta(i don't pay the slightest bit of attention to grammar/spelling/etc... when i write, so i won't subject anyone else to slogging through all that crap)--there's just no way i can get anyone to read 20k pages....

Name: Morgaine

Age: 21

Planned story/participation: House deals with supernatural forces as his friends experience radical changes in personality, bringing hidden desires to the surface and forcing House to face his misery. There will be demonic influences and the like. Definitely genre horror.

Means of contact: my lj, for email or chat or text.

Favorite pairings: Boy do I heart slash, but I also enjoy het pairings. Either way, it's how the depth of the relationship is showcased that matters. I love anything with Chase, Kutner, or Taub. Cameron/Thirteen is also very interesting. House/Wilson/Cuddy/Amber or any variation thereof is good, too. Jeeze, it's just easier to say my least favorite pairings-- House/Foreman and Cameron/Chase (and, even then, I'm willing to read them if it's well-written).

Kinds of stories you like: I'm game to read almost anything, as long as it is well-written, with good grammar and punctuation. (Ha, and someone getting a little action is always a plus!)

Kind of support group/buddies you'd like: People who are really willing to read and respond to a story with constructive critique. A few lines detailing how awesome the writer is doesn't help her improve her story. While it's not okay to be rude, it's necessary to tell the unvarnished truth.

Favorite House moments: When House and Wilson cock their heads to stare at Cuddy's butt while she walks away, Taub hugging his wife, Thirteen using her supposed bisexuality to mess with House, Chase hypnotizing House (or any House/Chase bonding, really). Also, when Wilson's wearing that reindeer hat and House says it's just a moose on a Jew. Genius.

Pet peeves: Bad grammar. Poorly drawn characters. Unrealistic relationships.

Planned story: Murder mystery at PPTH with vampire!Wilson & House. AU.
Contact: LJ
Pairings: House/Wilson
Kinds of stories you like: Big fan of Wilsoncentric stories. Almost anything with a House/Wilson pairing, as long as it's beta'd.
Support group/buddy: Someone to talk about House and Wilson. Bounce ideas off, and someone honest enough to tell me if my ideas are going off the deep end, getting melodramatic, and OOC.
Favorite House moments: The more Wilson, the more I like it. "Son of a Coma Guy" is my all-time favorite, because it went outside the hospital, H/W connected with the patient in a different way, and the story said a lot about their friendship.

Date: 2008-09-23 05:12 pm (UTC)

Hmm, I am also in need of one to bounce ideas off of. If you need one to rant about your fic to I'm here :)
Be warned, I might bounce my fic off of you also. XD

Don't worry, I'm the eternal fangirl of AUs. Nothing is too "out-of-this-world" (so to speak) for me. :)

Name: Magical 24 (AKA Tidwell)
Planned story: "Vacation" House's first mistake is reading the "Alternative Vacations" guide Kutner leaves on his desk. His second is finding a getaway that intrigues him. Something wicked this way comes. Twilight Zone/shades of The Prisoner/supernatural stuff. Wilson/Cuddy/the team/OC's also involved.
Contact: cheekmonkey24 at gmail dot com
Pairings: I like House/Cuddy and House/Stacy. None of that in this story though.
Kinds of stories you like: I love AU's that are done well. Crossovers/future fics, quirky, scary, twisted tales are good too.
Support group/buddy: I'd be happy to chat about story ideas, the writing process and what kind of progress we're making on this project.
Favorite House moments: "I'm looking for a distraction"...House on the bus in "House's Head"...Date with Cameron...Half-Wit piano scenes...too many others to mention!

Favorite pairings: House/Wilson

Kinds of stories you like: Hurt/comfort, but really, I'll read most stuff, except PWP's, as long as it's well-written.

Kind of support group/buddies you'd like: Someone to bounce ideas off would be good. I might also need help with the family laws of NJ and a bit about what a toddler of a certain age is able to do (because I have little experience with that age).

Contact Me: arhh76 on AIM,, occasionally you will find me on MSN IM- Best bet is through AIM though.
Favorite Pairings: House/Wilson, Wilson/Amber, House/Cuddy, House/Wilson/Amber, House/Wilson/Cuddy, Cuddy/13, Kutner/anyone
Stories I like: All kinds, as a general rule though, the more angst the better, although I do prefer if it comes to a somewhat happy resolve.
Supported I'd Like: Just some poking and prodding to tell me to stop procrastinating, someone(s) to beta as well.
Favorite House Moments: Too many to list LOL.
Pet Peeves: House/Chase fics (sorry, I see them more as father and son and I squick at anything else), constant references in fic to House and Wilson as either 'the oncologist' or 'the elder doctor' or 'the younger man' and 'the older man', dishonesty, immaturity.

Planned story: Depending on what happens in the first few episodes, maybe a sequel of sorts to my last Big Bang fic. I'm also playing with a House/Torchwood crossover that might grow enough in scope to work.
Contact: PM or through the email in my profile
Favorite Pairings: I've always been character-centric, rather than ship-centric, so I like anything with Wilson as one half of the pairing.
Favorite House episodes: House's Head/Wilson's Heart, Three Stories, Histories.
Favorite kinds of stories: Anything well-written and in character, though I prefer my characters angsty and screwed-up as opposed to evil.
Kind of support group/buddies you'd like: Mutual encouragement, especially as the deadlines draw near, a sounding board for ideas and plausibility checks.
Pet peeves: Character bashing, the "word" irregardless.
