januar: Abby from NCIS looking smug ([ncis] abby)
I'm currently watching the season six House episode "Tyrant". The big guest star is James Earl Jones, but what I noticed was when they listed the name David Marciano as one of the guest stars. I knew that name. When he showed up on screen, he looked kind of familiar, but I couldn't place him. I brought up the wikipedia page for the episode and just stared at the name for a about a minute. Then it dawned on me. Vecchio! David Marciano played Ray Vecchio on Due South! That's why the name was familiar!

What makes it even more amusing? The character on House is Canadian.

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] nextian:

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

I choose due South, since I've never actually written in the fandom before. So, if these suck (and they probably do), that is why.

[prompted by this]

Her father hadn't wanted her to become a Mountie. She was his little girl, and he knew that Mounties sometimes died in the line of duty. He didn't want to lose her like he lost her mother. He had her live with her grandparents, hoping that living with a couple of librarians might get the idea out of her head.

Unfortunately, that plan failed.

It's not that he wasn't proud of her. Quite the contrary. Seeing her in that bright red uniform, hat on straight, filled his heart with so much pride. It's just that it also filled his heart with fear and dread. He had a feeling that someday soon they would be parted by not just two thousand miles, but by death.

He didn't realize he would be the one dying.


"Can I help you?"

"Yes. Constable Iris Fraser, Royal Canadian Mounted Police. I'm looking for the officer in charge of this case..."

[Because I cannot not imagine Iris saying "Thank you kindly." She totally would. Her wolf would be named Artemis, after the Greek goddess of the moon. And along with Inuit stories, she would tell stories of the Greeks (as a child, she found that section of the library quite fascinating.)]
