Aw shucks

Why is it I can never write short? It would make Yuletide so much easier if I could just do the 1,000 words and spend time recrafting it over and over until it shines. But noooo. I have to be one of those people who can't just write something short and simple. I go on and on. I'm almost at 3,000 words and have no hope of ending this thing quickly. There are only two more weeks, though! This is bad. And it's nowhere near as cool as the source material and I don't know how to be that witty. Arrrrrgggg.

Yuletide is the craziest self-inflicted torture ever.

So, any old XF fans out there, particularly Krycek fans? I know there are some Nic Lea/Krycek babes on my flist, but I can't remember who, and I wondered if any of you had some personal scoop on him. I've been enabling Belmanoir in her new crush on him, and I mentioned offhandedly something I'd heard about him having some kind of charge for assault, but I can't find anything about it and I really wonder why the comment was made about it (this was back when XF was moving shooting to LA) in the context of him not being able to leave Canada until it was settled, but he clearly did because he was on the show once it relocated in Hollywood. It's really bugging me!

Anyways, yesterday we watched some XF episodes and vids, and it cracked me up, watching it all again. How quickly it went from being this kind of low-budget operation to something that clearly was a top-tier show with money and being a cultural phenomenon. Yet still, it made no sense and at the height of its popularity was getting dumber all the time. I stuck with it till the bitter end and I will never get those hours of my life back, but man, when it was good, it was so good.

Bel loves that Krycek is always terrified and seems to always be choking on his fear, which cracks me up. Because it's so, so true. It's like he probably lies awake at night hyperventilating over everything. I can't wait to show her Soccer Mom for the Consortium!Krycek at some point soon. Oh, Ratboy, you were so fun to kick around.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me virtual snowflake cookies -- sdwolfpup, anonymous person, sol_se, and tavella! Wow, that was such a surprise, and I am really touched, and thank you belatedly also to sweet_ali, who gave me the beautiful virtual birthday bouquet (the bouquet being virtual, not the birthday, unfortunately). You guys are all so sweet and boy do I wish I could actually eat one, they look good! Nom nom nom.

Hmm, are you sure you aren't thinking about Gillian's boyfriend? Didn't she date a crew member who had some kind of accusation against him? I don't remember anything about Nick Lea.

The last thing I've found on GoogleNews was a reference to him being at the Hong Kong Film Festival last month -- but when I went there the page is gone, so I know nothing more. I miss seeing him in shows. Not quite enough to start writing him again (I'm busy enough for now) but he's in the back of my head.

Oh boy do I. I should warn you there are some mild spoilers in these links, I don't know if that's an issue for you. mrs_laugh_track did an awesome pimping post here:

And I did two picspams of Foss (Nicholas Lea's character):

As a teaser, here is a .gif of Foss killing a dude:



If it sounds like something you want to watch, the whole thing is available on hulu and I can also hook you up with the pilot.

Don't know nuttin' 'bout no assault charge, but the latest, nummiest thing I've seen Nic in was Burn Notice, Season 3, Episode 7 "Shot in the Dark". O.M.G. He was looking soooo good. And nummy. And ya know, slimy as only he can do. Well worth a pimpage viewing.

Krycek always seems terrified that Mulder's going to slap him around some more (which, to be fair, seemed to happen a lot). ;)
