[community profile] hetswap has been revealed now! My assignment was (in a truly shocking, astonishing, unbelieveable turn of events) for Paranoidangel.

(Although to be fair, usually she gets assigned to me, whereas I think I've only got her once before.)

Anyway, that meant I got to write some B7 Tarrant/Dayna fic (which, lol, was not super-popular over at the fest):

Ghost Lights (4930 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Dayna Mellanby/Del Tarrant
Characters: Del Tarrant, Dayna Mellanby
Additional Tags: Season/Series 03, Grief/Mourning, References to canon character deaths, post episode s03e12 deathwatch, Explosions
Summary: While out on a mission, Dayna and Tarrant find the past catching up with them in a particularly dangerous fashion.

(I did write something else as well, but more about that anon, hopefully before the end of the day.)

Gift fics

Two marvellous fics I've been lucky to have written for me of late! I don't think I posted the Sixathon one here before, did I? (And [livejournal.com profile] sixathon has produced some lovely fics, you should go check it out, if you haven't already.)

So, my gift in the 2013 Sixathon:

Entanglements (4365 words) by ponygirl
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who, Doctor Who (1963), Doctor Who (2005), Doctor Who (Big Finish Audio), Doctor Who & Related Fandoms
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: The Doctor/River Song
Characters: Sixth Doctor, Evelyn Smythe, River Song
Additional Tags: Timey-Wimey, They keep meeting in the wrong order, The TARDIS is a sneaky so-and-so
Summary:

The Doctor has made it very clear to Evelyn that he is not interested in romantic entanglements. It's one of the things they agree on, actually.



(And, yes, it is as good as that all sounds and Ponygirl gave me my Evelyn & Six prompt, and then threw in a bonus Eleven-era character from one of my others. \o/)

And something that [personal profile] aralias wrote for me, for... well, I think because I sort of grumble-rambled the other day. Clearly, I should do that more often, because wonderfully cracky B7 fic ensued:

D(ams)el in Distress: Five Times Dayna and the Scorpio Crew Saved Tarrant (3239 words) by aralias
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Dayna Mellanby&Del Tarrant
Characters: Dayna Mellanby, Del Tarrant, Kerr Avon, Vila Restal, Soolin (Blake's 7)
Additional Tags: Damsel in Distress, Fake/Pretend Relationship
Summary:

For a young, handsome Space Captain, Del Tarrant certainly needs a lot of rescuing. Fortunately, Dayna Mellanby is not your average damsel.

Title: Keeping Secrets
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 553
Characters/Pairings: Del Tarrant/Dayna Mellanby
Notes/Warnings: None.
Summary: It’s hard work, having a secret relationship. (Early S4, no spoilers.)

Continuing with rescuing things from my notebook: this was an attempt at writing Tarrant/Dayna for [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 in [livejournal.com profile] shipswap last year.

The next round of daft snippets from the housework meme. As last time, only the tiniest bit of actual shippiness in the Allo Allo one.

8. DW - Brig/Liz – ironing (310 words) From [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1

9. Allo Allo - Helga Geerhart/Otto Flick: clearing the spiders out of the garage. (246 words) From [livejournal.com profile] brunhilde_1013

lost_spook: (dw - Not now Tegan!)
... so a sort of meme?

I've seen people messing with the drabble-matic thing (except it doesn't actually do drabbles - minus points for misuse of the term!). It asked for so much info, I didn't bother, but then thought if I put Five and Tegan in and just used words that went with them (beige, purple, cricket ball etc). It, um, well... It makes no sense whatsoever, but is bizarrely not unDW-like because it does include an attempt by one of the two to rule the world.

Disturbing Five/Tegan generated ficlet )

And I can't offer any explanation for what it gave me when i tried with Tarrant and Dayna. I mean, I know there's a lot of B7 slash, but it was a randomly generated ficlet. (I think it must be based on a certain type of fanfic cliche. Darn. Even when I put random words in a random generator, B7 won't do romance.)

More disturbing Tarrant/Dayna ficlet )

Okay, and then I did Blake and Jenna, and it came so near pr0n that I think I should stop now. But this generator definitely knows how B7 works as compared to DW. I am beginning to wonder if Orac is about on the nets...

Even more disturbing Blake/Jenna ficlet )
lost_spook: (b7 - tarrant/dayna)
Some nice things:

1. I have been catching up with some Big Finish, and have been listening to some more Eight and Lucie (I wish they weren't so much shorter - it makes them terribly more-ish!). I got to The Zygon Who Fell to Earth and was interested to see it had Steven Pacey in (who is, of course, Tarrant in Blake's 7). I wondered what he'd sound like now (and, yes, I KNOW he's in a Spooks episode, but I haven't seen that one since I've seen B7) and he was puuting on a West Country accent, drat him. And then being a Zygon. And then singing.

So, um, now the story is The One With Tarrant the Singing West Country Zygon. And to check it was him singing, I looked him up, and I hadn't realised he'd also been a bit of a West End star (apparently he got an Olivier award for playing Bertie Wooster in Andrew Lloyd-Webber's By Jeeves. Now I am all intrigued. Are there any clips of this?). I'm not usually one for bothering about rl actor details for characters, but there really ought to be some sort of cracky B7 fic in that, probably with Vila trying to make money out of it. (And then I also thought that B7 would work really well as an AU in which 'B7' was a pop group, with rivalry and people going solo, and rival bands funded by an evil corporation. It would explain the outfits. And I may have been delirious, yes. Sorry.)

... And I will be back another time with further delirium, as I see it is time for lunch now. :-)

(You can hear bits of it in this Behind the Scenes from R7 Here. There's a clip of the song at 3.14)
lost_spook: (Avon no sense)
One of those things that definitely wasn't what I was supposed to be doing with my afternoon off. But [livejournal.com profile] emerald_happy's suggestion of a Ros-Avon snark fest began to take shape in my head. Two disclaimers: 1. I apologise that there isn't anything like enough snark. 2. There really ought to be a very dark version of this somewhere. (I'll think about it).

Story: A Comedy of Errors
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 3,130
Characters/Pairings: Ros Myers, Kerr Avon, Ruth Evershed, Vila Restal, Zafar Younis, Harry Pearce, Malcolm Wynn-Jones, Dayna Mellanby, Del Tarrant, Adam Carter, Jo Portman.
Warnings: No real spoilers for either show. (Set just before 5.5 for Spooks, somewhere in S3 for B7.)

Summary: In which Section D apprehend a group of apparent terrorists in the act, only to find there’s something strange about them. This could all be smoothed over if Ros hadn’t entered a battle of wills with their leader. (A Very Silly Spooks/B7 crossover, with Avon and Ros snark, and everyone else having a nice day out in London. Ruth’s continuing acceptance of all things strange and alien, is still me running on from my fic Anarchist Sprites, but it always seems in character somehow.) Most of this, as I said, is entirely [livejournal.com profile] emerald_happy's fault.

Torture and ice cream )
lost_spook: (Avon)
My effort for this week's [livejournal.com profile] b7friday challenge "Different strokes":

Little Grey Cells
492 words, All ages.
It's one of the those classic 1930s murder mystery moments. Just with Avon, not M. Poirot...

(I haven't forgotten I still owe drabbles, but there's a one week limit on the challenges for this comm).

I've just written a v. short little Blake's 7 fic - my first. I'm afraid it isn't in the least bit serious and is inspired by the thing in S3 that amused me the most.

(All Ages, Series 3, spoiler free. Words: 364)
