lost_spook: (s&s - silver)
[community profile] fandom_stocking went live some time last night, so I have a whole stocking full of goodies!


I had three marvellous fics that were also posted to AO3, (so I'm using the handy links feature) - first up, two Sapphire and Steel fics, which both featured Silver and Liz, first from [personal profile] annariel:

Plus, amazingly, more Dracula (1968) fic from [personal profile] john_amend_all! I was just thinking that my lovely Yuletide gift had not in any way stopped me wanting MOAR FIC (well, you know, more than NONE or now, one) for this Dracula, and hey presto, now there's a lovely Lucy/Mina AU:

But that wasn't all... First Liadtbunny found me some Barbara Murray stuff and then, surreally, apparently James Maxwell turned up on her Avengers extras pretending to be Steed for a bit and she has the screencaps to prove it. (That James Maxwell gets everywhere...!) Anyway, I was highly amused, because, you know, Steed if he was awkwardly tall, slightly shifty and didn't know what to say to people at parties.

I had some pretty icons from Scripsi, some sweet best wishes/New Year's greetings, a rec, an IOU for Chalet School fic of some kind (v exciting!), and a lovely little A Quiet Gentleman/The Grand Sophy crossover by [personal profile] rain_sleet_snow.

I also had some fab Adam Adamant Lives! gifs from Swordznsorcery, so have a few of them under the cut:Gifs )

I did manage to do a bit more on the stocking-stuffing myself than last year, which was good! I'll post those in another post sometime. I didn't get to very many people, though - a rather random eight or so, including (ironically) an IOU for Chalet School fic and a joint S&S WIP (that I am at least pretty sure is going to get completed now as it has a much better scribbled out plan than it did when I posted the beginning).

I made myself get on and post this (always best to do something at least a little bit constructive)!


For those new to these parts, there exists a meme, a monster of a meme called "I Surrendered", where you get given prompts & make up TV shows and then the whole thing eats your brain. Naturally, being me, last time I used one of my prompts to make up a fake 1970s show (it was properly gloomy and everything) - and then it ate my brain even more than usual. (I might be writing fic for it for runaway_tales now).

Then Liadtbunny said something more recently about doing a prequel, at which I laughed at the idea - and then went off and plotted the whole thing out.

Thanks to everyone who helped out when I failed on suitable 1970s actors for one of the leads - your suggestions were all awesome, and it was a tough casting decision. (I'm still not sure the best man won, but don't tell him that.) (As part of the meme, I may pretend the show is real. It isn't. Obviously.)

When I posted about the 1973/4 drama series Heroes of the Revolution, some people seemed to be under the impression that there was, or was meant to be, a second series. This was never true - it was always conceived of as a one-off serial. However, what isn't as well known is that 1975 saw a prequel in the shape of mini-series Divide & Rule, the equally cheery tale of the downfall of the last government and the dictator Thomas Hallam's rise to power in the late 1950s, and that may have been what people were thinking of.





"Don't you know that Mr Hallam is going to save the country? Just don't stand in his way..."

1958: The ongoing crisis in Britain worsens by the day and the government don't seem to be doing anything to improve matters. Politician Thomas Hallam has a plan, a vision of what could be done to save the country from ruin, but some of the more established cabinet members don't want to listen. Some of them even seem to imagine the crisis will pass if they wait long enough. Well, Hallam's done enough waiting and he's not going to stand by and let the country fall apart.

Standing between Hallam and his goals: several cabinet ministers and the Prime Minister himself. One by one, they'll fall...


I did these vile things out of cowardice. I offer no excuse... )
