lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
[personal profile] lost_spook
Via [livejournal.com profile] el_staplador, a new friend via the friending meme (*waves*), a new-to-me writing meme, and one that involves less work than usual. How could I resist?

Comment to this post with a fic title (a word, phrase or quotation), a fandom and, if desired, a character or pairing. I'll reply with a summary of the fic I won't write for that title, in this way generating plot-bunnies, gaiety of nations and perhaps even actual fic by other people.

(If coming up with titles is hard, there's always a title generator like this one, which seems pretty comprehensive in genre choice.)

I reckon "Jonathan and Maddy investigate another devilishly complicated murder and solve it" totes works as a resolution as far as a Creek case fic might go ;)

Being possibly evil:) I went to one of my favourite B movie title generators....

Radioactive Robot Saucermen on a Plane

(if this is really impossible, how about Mega Monkeys from the Future?)

Blakes 7 of course...

I don't really know who/where else to ask about this, but does the phrase "spring break" mean anything to a British person? If not, what would be similarly associated with university students going somewhere warm, getting blind drunk, and doing regrettable things?

There's an LJ comm that used to be for exactly these kinds of questions (created for non-British Doctor Who writers, but no one there cared if you were writing a different fandom). Unfortunately it's looking pretty dead, but if you don't get an answer here, you can try there: [profile] dw_britglish

(I'm American, so I'm afraid I can't help you myself.)

Our students still just have Easter holidays and go home, as far as I know - I mean, American visiting students take off for the continent while they're so close, and I'm sure all the richer ones go away, but it's not a cultural phenomenon.

There's plenty of going to cheap (mainly) Spanish resorts and getting blind drunk at that age, but mostly in the summer, and not as a specifically student thing.

Thanks to everyone who chimed in on this! I think I've hashed out how to make this work.
