Things
1. Helloooooo Indiana House-majority. I have missed you so.
2. Happy Birthday, rhi_silverflame!
3. Neverwhere (canon or FH): 5 Things Door's Not Telling Anyone

  1. She'd sleep with de Carabas in a heartbeat if she could be sure who'd end up in whose debt, there. She wouldn't even care if it were her on the oweing side of the scale in the morning - it's just the uncertainty, and the fact that she's positive he'd know somehow, and never tell her.

  2. Once, she wished her brother and sister would go away and never come back. She was seven. She didn't know what dying meant and she didn't use the word, even in her head, but just for a second, she wished it were just the three of them again, Daddy and Mother and Door, and now... she remembers that. She knows it doesn't mean anything, she's not ashamed of it, but she remembers.

  3. She can still hear the exact sound a human heart makes when you hold it in your hand and squeeze. If she ever needs to vomit on command, all she has to do is think of it.

  4. She'd like to hear it again. Twice. Assuming Mister Croup and Mister Vandemar still have hearts.

  5. Sometimes after the twentieth repetition of 'yes, like the thing you walk through, no, there's no one in my family named Window,' she'd love to just tell them it's short for Doreen. Then punch them in the face.


4. ETA: Rumsfeld has resigned.
5. I don't even need a 5.

Today, you are my source of breaking news!

Wow. (Last time I hit "refresh" on the news, like an hour ago, he was "defiant" or something.)

Wow, Rummy resigning is almost as good as Rick Santorum losing his seat. Thanks for the news, you are quick!

*underplays her at Fandom High*

She's an interesting character to try to get a handle on because she's not really given many faults in canon.

You wrote Neverwhere fic! Wow. and also, yay! Is there actually a Neverwhere fandom somewhere that I've been missing? Is there fanfic & fanart & all the other lovely fandom things??

Sometimes after the twentieth repetition of 'yes, like the thing you walk through, no, there's no one in my family named Window,' she'd love to just tell them it's short for Doreen. Then punch them in the face.

This cracked me up. I love it :)

You do not see the date on this response. It was not in my inbox all this time totally getting missed WTF. *waves hands in Jedi-like manner*

I dunno if there is a Neverwhere fandom in bulk - I know it's been hard as hell to find much in the way of icons that h'aint been custom-made by timjr, and I dno't think anyone's done a mood theme. I've read a Buffyverse/Neverwhere crossover at one point (Dawn and Door meet as Dawn is being slowly literally forgotten about after season 5) but not gone looking for other fic, really.

I'm playing Door over at fandomhigh, though, so I was moved to try some myself, albeit only in weetiny dribblets.
