Greetings!

Here you will find the quill scratchings of one Birdy Diamond and company. A bit of prose, a bit of poetry, a bit of fan-fic... within these virtual walls you will find many literary delights and novel confections with which to brighten your day.

So... come on in! Pull up a chair, sit down with a tasty beverage and enjoy!!!

-Birdy :>O<:


PS - Not that I am a legal-eagle, being a literary phoenix and all, but I am given to understand that as long as a post is not visible to the wide world, web-wise, one may not have to submit the work contained within it as a reprint when trying to sell said work. Therefore, much, if not all, of this journal will be friends-only. So, if you wish to read... post and I will add you on in. Welcome to the Cafe!!! :-) -B! :>O<:

PPS - 08-01-07 - Having remembered the definition of 'concrete expression', I have un-friendlocked the fan-fic. The original pieces still stay as they were, alas, but are accessible for the request. Enjoy!

Comments and concrit welcomed and much appreciated!!! I don't promise to implement every suggestion, but all positive critiques will be listened to and thought about. Thank'ee's!

PPPS - 03-17-15 - Having returned to writing after far too many years away, I am reviving this journal as well. Gathering the fan-fic in one place over at BardicRaven on Archive of our Own. The original fic? Haven't decided yet, tho' i and we have decided that whatever we decide, we are not planning on having our works published through anyone else but ourselves, so that frees us considerably in deciding.

If you like what you read here and would like to support the continuation + expansion of the works and Universes you read here, please consider becoming a Patron over at our Patreon page. -B! :>O<:

Greetings!

I have apparently just lost my laptop after losing my dog's mother this am. This on top of two months of fighting w/LJ to get S4-7 to a size that will fit so it can be posted. (And I still haven't succeeded.)

I am so upset I'm sitting here writing this instead of watching tonight's epi.

Truly, there is no joy in Mudville (normally known as Ann Arbor) tonight.

Written for the Fall '07 Chase_Fest. Brought in late, but much improved, in great part thanks to the help of the Best of Betas [info]pwcorgigirl     


Titles:
Three Leaves from a Yew Tree: Part I - Signs Easily Missed, Part II - Of Pride & Pennies, Part III - The First to Begin

Prompts
Part I - #47 Post-"Mistake" -- Still surprised and angry that House didn't warn him, Chase thinks back over the past months, looking for any signs that House knew -- and realizes that House was planning to tell him, all the way back in "Cursed", before Chase said he didn't want to hear it. How does Chase react to that realization? And were there any other signs that he missed? Gen

Part II - #83 Why does Cuddy give Chase the time in NICU and lie about it? What does she know about him, or he have on her that House doesn't?

 Part III - #35 (Gen) Chase's thoughts during 'Half-Wit'. The cancer diagnosis isn't a lie. I'd like to see a take on this that isn't mine.

Warnings: Minor character death, major character death; spoilers for S1-13 "Cursed, S2-8 "The Mistake", S-20 & 21 "Euphoria - Parts 1 &2",  S2-22 "Forever", S3-15 - "Half-wit", possible spoilers for misc. bits of trivia; rated PG-13 for heavy thoughts and situations

Part I - Minor character death, spoilers for S1-13 "Cursed, S2-8 "The Mistake"
Part II - Minor character deaths, spoilers for S2-8 "The Mistake", S-20 & 21 "Euphoria - Parts 1 &2",  S2-22 "Forever"
Part III - Major character death, spoilers for S3-15 - "Half-wit"

House M.D. and all related characters are the property of Shore Z, Bad Hat Harry, Fox, etc.
This particular variation on a theme belonging to others is mine.
Thank'ee's muchly!

What inspires you to write?
 Odd things that catch my Muse's eyes and ears - fiction, fact, people on a plane, a train, an automobile. A couple talking in a bookstore, a mother and her child at the grocery store. A good book, a well-written telly episode. Anything and everything that says something that I want to say.

What does it take to make a good movie? What's the best movie you've seen recently?
 Greetings!

To be well written, regardless of the type. All else flows from that.

Many, many thanks go to 
[info]pwcorgigirl for emergency beta-ing way above and beyond the call. She busted her butt to get these stories beta-ed for me at the last minute, and I want to acknowledge that effort, and my immense appreciation of same, even though my life melted immediately thereafter and these aren't being posted until now.

Also thanks go to 
[info]keeperofstars , for being understanding about the aforementioned melting.

Hopefully the tale is worth the wait.

Title: A Personal and Secret Hell
Author: Katrina Hawke
Prompt: Wilson’s self-loathing: why he’s really on anti-depressants.
(the third in the trilogy, as it were - this was the Prompt that Would Not Leave My Muse Alone - and therefore she would not leave me alone until they were all written down.)
Rating: PG-13 for heavy thoughts
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Wilson, offstage cameo by House, Cuddy, Tritter  / Gen
Warnings: rated PG-13 for heavy thoughts, possible spoilage for minor bits of background trivia
Disclaimer: House M.D. and all related characters are the property of Shore Z, Bad Hat Harry, Fox, etc.
This particular variation on a theme belonging to others is mine.
Summary: Wilson again muses on what has been and what is and what will be.

Enjoy!
-Katrina
