lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
Hail, fellow travellers, and well met. My Dreamwidth is mostly for fic, recs, icons, vids and fannish nonsense - fic/vids/icons etc. remain open, but the rest has got largely flocked these days (people were scraping entries via tags, unfortunately). I'm terribly obscure and multi-fannish, but generally happy to make new friends.

My fic:
lost_spook on AO3
vvj5 at A Teaspoon and An Open Mind (the Doctor Who archive)

My vids:
lostspook1 at YouTube

Current & Past Prompt tables etc: apocabingo card | origfic Bingo card | genprompt_bingo card (Round 11) | Historical for [community profile] who_allsorts | Fourth Doctor Era - 6 Prompts (for dw_allsorts) | Trope Bingo card | Hurt/Comfort Bingo Card | 100 Element Prompts | 50 Ficlets | Shakespeare Plays Watched.

Also the 500 Prompts Meme. runaway_tales: Masterpost here.

Notes on permission: Any remixes etc. based on fanworks of mine are fine - go ahead, and do let me know; I'd be thrilled. And, obviously, credit is nice. No posts made here to be reproduced elsewhere, thanks. If you wish to link to any open posts, of course, please do so!


Friending: New friends are always welcome, but if you'd like me to friend you back and we haven't previously interacted, please drop a comment here so I know who you are, otherwise I'll assume that you merely wanted to add my public entries to your reading circle.

Sometimes when I am thinking I'd like to write a quick ficlet, I actually remember that I have a giant list of prompts for that purpose. Amazing. Have a 500 prompts fic:

For reasons, I find myself very short of brain again (replies to posts and comments coming whenever as a result) but I also found I'd completed two 500 Prompts ficlets a few weeks ago, so here's one of them. You might even get the other later, too...

Title: The Last Time
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 303
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Third Doctor
Notes/Warnings: None. Fluff.

For [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 in the 500 Prompts Meme: #114 – Written all over his/her/my face – Clara Oswald. (I may have kind of leapt sideways from the prompt, but not in a way I think you’ll mind – or at least, I hope not!)

Rescuer )

Title: After the Moment
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 347

Summary: Someone always has to clear up after the grand gestures – and that someone is rarely the Doctor.

For [personal profile] john_amend_all in the 500 Prompts Meme #197: the moment – Silver/The Moment (S&S/DW). (Because apparently one Silver fic inevitably leads to another.)

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1025

For [livejournal.com profile] justice_turtle in the 500 Prompts Meme: 365 – I walk out in stormy weather (Sapphire/Silver/Steel). Another fic fished out of an old notebook - my notes from the time suggest that I originally also meant this to be for an [livejournal.com profile] element_flash prompt “April showers”. (I’m, er, not sure which April… Probably 2014!)

(JT, don't worry if you can't read it for any reason - I took at least 18 months just to type it up; you can take as long as you need before you read it, or just not. ♥)

Better Left Unsaid )
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
Through this week I rapidly approached (and have now passed) the Awefull moment where I would finish The Power Game and not have anything else to watch where people are likely to accuse one another of clinging on like a neurotic limpet with a peeping tom complex. Naturally, I pulled out my 500 Prompts list to find the one Persiflage had so kindly left for just such an occasion. Me: "Hmm, betrayal, that could fit everyone..." *writes five times fic that is a series of (hopefully not too) incomprehensible conversations* What can I say? Sadly, the sarcasm is lagging a long way behind the show.

In other news, I managed to get a solitary blue and white bran flake in my pack of otherwise-normal Bran Flakes this week. I get the white frosting, but I didn't think we had blue breakfast cereal in the UK. Where did the blue come from? Is it an alien plot?




Title: Loose Ends (or Five Times Pieces of Silver Changed Hands)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1952
Characters/Pairings: Don Henderson & Pamela Wilder, Susan Weldon & Colin Townley, Lincoln Dowling/Pamela Wilder, Kenneth Bligh/Justine Bligh, John Wilder.

Here's a slight ficlet for the 500 Prompts meme I found lurking on my hard drive...

Title: Like A House on Fire
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 666
Characters/Pairings: Ace, Dayna Mellanby
Notes/Warnings: Possibly spoilery for B7 episode “Aftermath”. Mentions of violence/explosives/canon death.
Summary: Ace and Dayna swap tall tales round the fire. They’ve got a lot in common.

For [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 in the 500 Prompts Meme: #341. Tales of long ago - Ace & Dayna Mellanby (DW/B7)

Let me do something that isn't rambling about old TV!

It's been a while and I need to print off the full list again, for reasons, so... if anyone would like to leave any more prompts (please please!!) in the 500 Prompts meme you're welcome, doubly so if you weren't around when I first offered or you only left one or two... but, hey, all prompts are good!

The instructions are on the original post, but basically it is a very long list of prompts. You choose one/two/many and attach a character/pairing/crossover meeting etc. & at some point in the dim and distant future when you have forgotten all about it, I write a ficlet. Or possibly a drabble or a 6000+ word fic, depending. I make no promises! (One thing I have noticed is that I do seem to respond more to prompts with more than one character.) And anything's fair game - any fandom I've mentioned or is in my profile/tags. If I can't do something, I'll just say.

(In the last year and a few odd months, I think I've done nearly 30, so... fic does happen.)

Prompts = ♥

Title: It Ends Tonight (The Last Best Dress Rehearsal)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1419
Characters/Pairings: Eleventh Doctor, Delgado Master, Ainley Master, Roberts Master, Professor Yana, Simm Master, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Clara Oswald, The TARDIS.
Notes/Warnings: Er, comically dark?
Summary: They keep meeting accidentally on purpose. There’s something the Doctor thinks he’s left undone.

For [livejournal.com profile] the_redjay in the 500 Prompts Meme: 355. It ends tonight - Eleven, the Master (DW). (I don't know what happened. I'm pretty sure when I started writing this it was going to be angsty and not "The Doctor tries to execute the Master: the multi-era comedy" but these things happen. To me, at least. I'm sorry. Ish.) Anyway, apparently one Master fic leads to another...


It Ends Tonight )
lost_spook: (b7 - Vila)
Title: Expert Opinion
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 738
Characters/Pairings: Servalan, The Master

Summary: They both leave a trail across the galaxies that the other can see only too clearly...

For [livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny in the 500 Prompts Meme: #81 Across the worlds (Servalan & The Master, B7/DW). This prompt is one of those that could so easily have been an epic, but I turned it into this. It's probably as well, really...

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2! Here's hoping you're continuing to recover well - and having a marvellous day! ♥

I had this 500 prompts fic nearly finished already, as it happened, so it's here doubling up as some sort of birthday fic:

Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, Susan Foreman

Word Count: 759
Characters/Pairings: Jo Portman, Jo Grant, Zafar Younis
Notes/Warnings: None.
Summary: Jo first learned what to do when locked in a cell not from MI5, but from someone else entirely…

For [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 in the 500 Prompts Meme #54 Leap of Faith – Jo Grant & Jo Portman (DW/Spooks).

Cellmates )

Title: Tinder-Box
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG/Teen
Word Count: 1322
Characters/Pairings: Regina, Rumplestiltskin (slight Rumple/Regina)
Notes/Warnings: Set early on (not long after the Fairy Tale side events of S2’s “Queen of Hearts”.)
Summary: Some people won’t be told about playing with fire…

For [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2 & [profile] ramasi in the 500 Prompts Meme – 4: Dancing with the Devil – Rumplestiltskin (OUaT) & 206: Dangerous Illusion – Regina/Rumple (OUaT). It’s probably cheating to combine two prompts, but they went together so naturally.

As is patently obvious, some stuff I nicked from Hans Andersen and twisted about (because OUaT).

Tinder-Box )
lost_spook: (I Capture - writing)
Title: Star Ship
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 593
Characters/Pairings: Kathryn Janeway/USS Voyager, Tom Paris, Chakotay
Notes/Warnings: None.
Summary: All Captains talk to their ships, of course. It’s just that Janeway feels sure that hers talks back.

For [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 411: She’ll be a star now, I will follow her lead – Kathryn Janeway.

It's a bit late, but if you want to count it as such, it can be a birthday ficlet. ♥

Star Ship )
lost_spook: (dw - brig/liz)
Title: UNIT: Night Sentries
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 4143
Characters/Pairings: Nat Webber, Sergeant Kennedy
Notes/Warnings: None. (1980s UNIT fic, set about a week after UNIT: Strange Weapons, so very early in the series - no spoilers.)
Summary: April 1985: The Sergeant thinks it’s quiet. Too quiet. Dr Webber thinks that’s a cliché, but that’s the thing about clichés – sometimes they’re true.

For [livejournal.com profile] jjpor in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 245: worried by silence, the sentries whisper – 1980s UNIT. Possibly belated birthday fic, should you want to call it that. (Writing OC fic for that purpose always seems a tad egotistical of me, but at least there's a bit of Sergeant Kennedy this time...)

UNIT: Night Sentries (on Teaspoon)

Title: Something in the Atmosphere

Summary: Harry’s avoiding the subject…

For [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 201. Gazing upon the sky with dampened eyes… - Harry Pearce (Spooks). (One day I may write Spooks fic that is not a stupidly slight ficlet, or a cracky crossover, but today is not that day.)

In which I continue rescuing ficlets and suchlike from the depths of my notebooks. Here's another one for 500 prompts.

Title: One Dreary Day
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 275
Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor
Notes/Warnings: None.
Summary: It was one of those grey days – and then he turned up…

For [livejournal.com profile] taiyou_to_tsuki in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 184: One dreary September day – Sixth Doctor. This is a little odd, I know, but it was what came to mind with the prompt for some reason.

In which I continue with typing up things found in notebooks:

Title: Flowers in the Ashes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1020
Characters/Pairings: Sylbil Crawley, Evangeline Eliott
Notes/Warnings: None.
Summary: Sybil Crawley makes a new acquaintance.

For [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 456: Flowers in the ashes – Sybil Crawley & Evie Eliott (Downton/House of Eliott). Which was (mainly due to the canonical timelines of bother), much harder than it appeared once I thought about it. This was the best I could come up with - hope it's all right!

I've been poking round in my notebook, and found some things, including this, which I believe I wrote last summer, but couldn't quite finish. (Now, I found it already had its ending; I'd just tried to continue beyond it.)

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 856 words
Characters/Pairings: Leela, Ander Poul
Notes/Warnings: Set at the end of the PDA Corpse Marker, with some reference to elements of the story. Mild hurt/comfort of sorts. Brief references to Poul's mental state.
Summary: Leela has no sympathy for Poul. What she has to give is always more practical.

For [livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 008: 'Til your/my/her/his fingers bleed – Leela/Poul (DW/Kaldor City). Also for [community profile] hc_bingo square “panic attacks”.
