Like, how am I supposed to make Gregory House sound snippy and gruff in the same way he sounds on the screen if there's not screen in front of me? WTF! I mean there is -- a screen, but a computer screen, with a curser going blink, blink, blink.
How do you tv- and movie-fandomers do it? Should I write a script instead?
That's rhetorical. I know. But I don't know. And I don't want to READ any House-fic first, because I don't want to be influenced by other people's writing before I take a stab myself.
