Hail, fellow travellers, and well met. My LJ 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. I crosspost from Dreamwidth, too, but tend to read my flist via LJ.

Dear Yuletide Letter 2015 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. (If you're on LJ, please also add me there if you can.)

The Doctor Who Minor Characters Ficathon is on again for this year! See below for details and please pimp if you can - there's a banner post with handy coding at the comm. There is also a rebloggable tumblr post for similar pimpage over there.

Also go sign up and prompt if you're a Doctor Who fanficcer! And don't forget you don't need to be taking part to leave prompts - all welcome!



[livejournal.com profile] dw_guestfest is a low pressure ficathon for all minor/guest characters from any corner of the Whoniverse.

Open now for both prompts and sign-ups! (If you're not on LJ, anon commenting is on, and other methods of prompting/signing up etc. are available - check the comm for more info.)

For the Talking Meme, from [personal profile] st_aurafina: Do you remember the moment when you learned Doctor Who was coming back? How did you think it would go? Were your hopes/fears realised?

This is a funny one, because I never really believed Doctor Who wasn't coming back one day. Also, as I've been a fan since 1988, it's complicated.

So... The fifteen year tale of how Doctor Who was always coming back )

1. This week got eaten by complaining about my lack of the book I ordered to an Amazon Marketplace company but at least I have said book now, even if I may possibly wind up with two. (It's not that they were awful, it's just that I can't do these things very well at all these days, and I had to phone the Post Office delivery place, even though you can't, and talk to both my neighbours, it was terrible.)



2. But here is a better thing - [livejournal.com profile] dw_guestfest, the Doctor Who Minor Characters Ficathon is now open for prompting! You don't have to be taking part to leave prompts - you don't even need to be on LJ. (Anon commenting is on for your convenience, or you can pm me with them here, or leave them in this post if you'd rather - and, indeed, you can sign up and play that way too - there's more details in the info post at the comm.) If you have ever loved any of the one-off characters of the Whoniverse, feel free to leave inspiration and see if anyone picks it up!


3. I am still watching Doomwatch, but only in between things, because it is sheer 70s paranoia TV about the ways in which all scientific developments could KILL YOU and the apocalypse needs to come in relatively small doses. The second surviving episode is the (apparently infamous) one about the killer rats, which despite the cute fakeness of some of the rats, was indeed enough to give me nightmares, but it's very good. It was made about exactly the same time as S7 of Doctor Who (that is to say, the original S7), except it is less awesome because it doesn't have the Brigadier or Liz Shaw, but it does still make for gripping TV. (Also, there should be crossovers, they were literally showing at the same time, where are all the crossovers? I can see there will be one before I'm done, lol. Probably not for the Minor Characters Ficathon, unless some dodgy DW scientist also gets investigated by Doomwatch...)

... and of course, this is why I can never resist [community profile] fandom_stocking after all, because, lo, I have a stocking and it is full of shiny things!

AAL!, Doctor Who, S&S, Georgette Heyer, Dracula (TV 1968) fic under the cut )

And in my stocking, in addition to some kind greetings, friendly good wishes, and IOUs, I have:

* a great little Ruth/Harry ficlet (Spooks) by [personal profile] cordeliadelayne

* one of Liadt's amazingly funny and adorable pics (which is still making me giggle far too much whenever I look at it.)

* Superior Sense, a Georgette Heyer crossover with Sophy and Drusilla, which is lovely, by [personal profile] rain_sleet_snow

* actual fab Press Gang Spike/Lynda + alien invasion fic from [personal profile] swordznsorcery, amazing!! (Watch out for the alarming gif, too. ;-D)

* and, lastly, a couple of very nice S&S icons by [personal profile] tarlanx.

(And I did make things; they were just very nearly all graphics and odd bits and pieces, but me saying that I wasn't doing things for it was actually untrue. I just wasn't writing, but words aren't the only form of creativity!)
lost_spook: (b7 - deva)
I wasn't sure whether to do it again or not, because they do keep re-running the same questions, but I saw that the last time I did was 2014, so here goes:

[community profile] snowflake_challenge Day 1:

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Looking back brought me to my two previous answers to this question and I had been thinking that maybe I should self-rec something different than obscure fics I write that nobody else will read, but I realised that I still go yes inside at my choices for the last two, and that's kind of an odd but nice record to have. My answers for this questions are the fics that mean a lot. (I don't know in what way, but they do.)

So, since 2014, what works have I written that also bring out that feeling? It turns out there are conveniently three main candidates (although I'd like to also talk about the origfic, of course, but I won't. ;-p) And since they're an AU, a fic centring on a minor character, and post-canon for a thing that is at least based on a very well-known story, I think they're all reasonably accessible, too. Or, well, hope springs eternal.

Light on a Hill (3166 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Spooks | MI-5
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Characters: Tom Quinn (Spooks), Ruth Evershed, Malcolm Wynn-Jones
Additional Tags: Community: hc_bingo, Identity, Apocalypse, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Season/Series 02, Implied/Referenced Character Death, References to Shakespeare
Summary: ”I think the king is but a man, his fears be of the same relish as ours.” It’s the end of days, and Ruth and Tom are having delusions of grandeur, but then, what’s new?

I'd been threatening to write a Spooks apocalypse fic where Tom runs the country and Ruth runs him for around forever. Of course, I waited till the entire fandom had vanished like officers going back into hibernation, but still, I did it. Finally! And I still like it; I still think it's good. Even if it probably shouldn't have involved an alien invasion. (I can't help it sometimes. I'm a Doctor Who fan.) It has no spoilers, although of course, I'm sure it helps to know the characters (Ruth, Tom, Malcolm), though - but then again someone could test read it to tell me? You might not...

Summary: Martha Tyler lives on a time rift, sees things no one else does, and fights evil with rock salt. It’s been that way all her life.


... and I had also been threatening for years to write that fic where Mrs Tyler from Image of the Fendahl lives on a rift all her life and is way more awesome than Torchwood, because she does, and she is. And I did, for the first Minor Characters Ficathon I ran. The character in question is so obscure and this is mostly backstory, so again, I don't think you need to know too much really; much less so than for Light on a Hill. A basic knowledge of what Doctor Who is and its kind of universe helps naturally, but it's probably pretty easy to get the idea of. I hope so, anyway. (It's kind of not unlike some of my Miss Marple fic, I suppose, but with more aliens and the supernatural getting defeated instead of murderers. Although I feel sure Mrs Tyler wouldn't be having with them, either.)

My Yuletide 2016 assignment. It became a lot more than I intended, not only in the word count and I think it's genuinely good. I hope it is - it's a more recent effort than the other two. But I think so; I hope so. I know the feeling when a fic gets into this category and when it doesn't. And it's been read by at least two people who only knew the book, so I don't think canon is essential (and I have a few small, (hopefully) helpful author's notes at the start).
lost_spook: (Default)
1. I've just done a friending meme and even actually managed to friend new people (I asked some of them myself!) (hi, new flisters!) and now of course, I am off to my parents' for Christmas, where internet access will be variable and most likely reading rather than commenting. Sorry about that.

Also because the next few posts following this will very likely be the one where I'm not here but I have to mention my Yuletide gift, the one where I'm back but exhausted, and then a wave of Yule-recs. So, um, yes, welcome? I will try and do something properly introductory in the New Year, though.

But I hope everyone who is celebrating Christmas has a lovely one, and anyone not celebrating manages to have a nice week despite any unwanted festivities! ♥


2. I nearly managed to finish the last writing meme before I went (because if I don't now, I won't) but I embarrassingly ran out of spoons with one left to go. (Sorry last person; once I cross that line, I cross that line. It was accidental!) I will have another writing meme soon enough, I'm sure. I might even get through all the prompts next time.

And here are the last three:Under the cut so as not to take up too much space )
lost_spook: (dw - one)
1. I am now an impatient Yuletider, waiting to have a present to shake! (Where O where is my fic; it's not as if the Deadline is yet to come and I'm being unreasonable! Oh, wait, yes I am...) I am also waiting for two other people to have gifts to I can post their treats. (Which technically I can do anyway, one way or the other, but I'll wait at least a bit longer now. And one of them is not yet typed up and may not work anyway - scary fandom is scary! But shiny prompt is shiny, so shiny...)




2. I was thinking about [livejournal.com profile] dw_allsorts a while ago and wondering, for various reasons, about opening it up to be just table-claiming and not claiming for a specific person/pairing/era, and then I thought that it has tiny prompt tables (3-20 prompts depending) and so that's part of the point. But then I thought about adding in an extra option to liven things up and so now you can claim a theme instead if you wish! (So, say "historicals" or "Villains" or a trope you like or "Crossovers" or "Episode Tags" or "Favourite Pairings"). I am ridiculously pleased with this idea and now want to claim a further table. I think one could go well with my [community profile] genprompt_bingo table! I'm amused at myself; I've finally worked out how to make my own comm more exciting to me. Anyway, I made a post at the comm for that and a couple of other things.

It's been a while since I've mentioned it, so *pimps at the worst time of the year* : [livejournal.com profile] dw_allsorts is a low-pressure mini-prompt table community for Doctor Who (of all flavours, including spin-offs). All fanworks are welcome as fills and minimums are pretty minimal! Tables come in sets of 3,6,9,12,15 & 20; you can sign up for up to two claims at a time and you can claim any Character, Pairing, Era, Spin-Off, or Theme that you wish. There are no actual deadlines, but if your first fanwork doesn't appear within three months of signing up, your claim will be removed from the list as inactive, but you can always renew it or pick it up again at any time. People can also suggest new prompt tables if they have ideas. Once you complete your claim, you get a banner of variable quality as made by me (except if you are me, because I draw the line at making myself banners). All the details are here if you want to know more.


3. I have a [community profile] fandom_stocking hung up here, should anyone be interested. (Sign-ups are now over and the stockings are gradually being hung up. I am bookmarking stockings and vaguely hoping that I'll be able to make at least the odd icon here and there, post-Yuletide writing, post-being away etc. etc. and dreaming of ficlets. Who knows?)

My now-regular Thursday feature! (We'll see how long this lasts. ;-p)

1. For some reason I'd been feeling a bit down the last couple of days, but you know what is always at least a little bit cheering at such moments? Multi-era Doctor Who fanvids. I was cheering myself with Marching On by xxdrosexx and then wondering why I didn't have any yet that went up to Twelve, so I went looking, and found this, which is also great:

Cut for embed )

Because Doctor Who is, after all, that great big improbable and ridiculous thing of joy and monsters. :-)


And I'm continuing to enjoy watching (or reading) from the sidelines as the Public Call fics get revealed, so here's two more good ones:

2. A Taste of Home by dbskyler (G, 1784 words. Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan.) Sarah, the Doctor, and home. Lovely glimpse of some 'missing scenes' from Terror of the Zygons.


3. Side Quest by annariel (G, 6388 words. Harry Sullivan, Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith.) Harry is collecting equipment for the Doctor when he runs into an adventure of his own. Can he foil the evil Dr. Richards, while at the same time helping the Doctor and Sarah fend off an alien invasion they somehow never quite have the time to explain properly to him? Excellent missing adventure, with Harry getting to prove his worth.


4. The Terrible Doom That Came To Honeysuckle Cottage by Psychomachia (Teen, 2592 words.) There's a saying old says that love is blind
Still we're often told, seek and ye shall find
So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind.
One of the best and funniest fics to come out of last year's Yuletide: the Cthulhu Mythos meets P.G. Wodehouse's Honeysuckle cottage. (Definitely a don't-need-to-know-canon fic.)


5. By Wise Council You Shall Make Your War by beer_good_foamy (Teen, 722 words. Edmund Blackadder, George Colthurst St. Barleigh, Baldrick, Bob. Crossover with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) In each generation, a Slayer is born. She alone will stand against the etc etc. In 1917, that was a young woman named... um... Bob? Good thing the Watcher's Council have an auxiliary member already in place in the trenches. What it says, oh yes, oh yes. :-D

OUaT: Browned Butter by awanderingbard (G, 1956 words. Emma Swan/Killian Jones, Snow White, Regina Mills, Henry Mills.) It's Storybrooke's first Thanksgiving, and Emma is finding trying to be a domestic goddess more difficult than she anticipated. Sweet and funny, with Emma battling to do something impressive on the domestic front.


Miss Marple: Advice From Aunt Jane by DesertVixen (Teen, 1212 words. Miss Marple, Dolly Bantry, Jane Helier.) Jane Helier needs some advice from Miss Marple and Dolly Bantry Pitch perfect conversation between the three, picking up on threads from The Thirteen Problems.


Doctor Who: At Last a Dragon by paranoidangel (All ages, 985 words. John Chesterton, Tenth Doctor.) John Chesterton doesn't believe in Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy or the Doctor. John Chesterton finally realises that all the stories his parents told him were real. Lovely.


Heroes: Drive My Car by Andraste (Hiro & Ando, Hiro/Ando.) "Our life of legend begins!" Great, fun vid for S1 Hiro & Ando.


Diana Wynne Jones: World Enough, and Time by jamjar (PG, 5408 words. Erskine, Hathaway, Torquil, Awful, Howard, Catriona.) The journey of a thousand miles (starts with sending your siblings to Alpha Centauri). Perfect capturing of the novel's tone, with the remaining siblings starting to both mend their ways and move about more freely.

I was feeling a bit down and so thought of doing this as maybe an occasional thing: here are five nice things I've bookmarked recently:

Third Time Pays For All by JohnAmendAll (G, 922 words, Lucy Weston/Mina Harker/John Seward.) Lucy had been vaguely expecting a confession of a clandestine love affair between her fiancé and her best friend. The truth was far stranger.

Written for me in a recent meme, this is a lovely Dracula TV 1968 fic from the prompt Lucy/Mina/John & timeloops.


Appropriately enough, two very excellent DW fics from the [livejournal.com profile] who_at_50 53rd Anniversary Fanworkathon:

The Scientific Method by nonelvis (Teen, 1723 words. Implied Liz/Brig; Liz/Kate Stewart) Five moments in the life of Elizabeth Shaw. Liz, being awesome as ever.

An Offer You Can't Refuse by Shivver (All ages, 4959 words.) Trying to recover an ailing population's stolen medical supplies, the Doctor and Ace come up empty when the smuggler's trail goes cold. Great missing adventure for Seven & Ace (never an offer I can refuse, that's for certain).


Dance Apocalyptic by thingswithwings and eruthros I really really wanna thank you for dancing to the end. Amazing multi-fandom vid about when the world is ending.


I get so used to finding no fic I like when I poke into modern fandoms (just endless fluff and AUs and ships), that I was actually shocked when I looked into Ripper Street on AO3 and found actual multiple good fics. (I suppose it is a fandom where one of the main attractions is its use of language...)

Inspector Reid's Catalogue of Criminals by shyday (G, 6616 words. Edmund Reid, Homer Jackson, Fred Abberline.) An archive fic. Great capturing of the voices - Reid, his obsessions and dreams and his archive project. (set shortly before 3.01).

1. Calufrax is back in action and in need of more reccers! It seems to be harder and harder to poke a response out of readers these days, but it's still always fun & worthwhile.

3. Following up on the return of King Arthur in the wake of the EU Referendum result, here's one where Lord Vetinari takes over. (Yeah, we continue in limbo; none of the options ahead look good, but hey ho. Have a joke article.)

(Swordznsorcery has now uploaded some of their other fic too and is worth checking out, especially if you like various old telly fandoms like Blake's 7 and Doctor Who etc.):

I decided my writing gears needed a bit of a kick start and hunted out the tried and tested poetry meme. The quotes were especially random this time, but it still worked:

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

The Doctor Who Minor Characters Ficathon is having a mini-round for 3 weeks in late July/early August:



This is because this year's ficathon seemed to coincide with life hitting a lot of us during the round. So, this is a bonus mini-fest with lower minimums and open to ALL fanworks, not just fic. Please do join in and leave prompts (for all mediums) or claim a day and make some fic, icons, art, rec sets, podfic, manifestos, picspams, gifs or whatever you can think of for any minor characters in the Whoniverse who need some more love. (Which, frankly, is pretty much all of them.)

I will try and remember to actually promote it places over the coming week, but there are three generic banners that you can snaffle from the comm if you would like to promote it yourself in any appropriate comms or your own LJ. Thank you!

1. I defaulted on Not For Prime Time. I know by now I shouldn't sign up for exchanges, excepting only Yuletide (because once a year come hell or high water to see how it goes is a good thing) and possbly Remix (because it works differently). But of course I love exchanges and it's hard to remember that they don't mix well with being ill even in the best circumstances. So I'm kicking myself for giving in and signing up, and also for defaulting on a really lovely assignment that I had a perfectly workable idea for, but I'm immediately a good deal less stressed. Bingos are fine, Runaway Tales, prompts, commentfests, but not exchanges and only some ficathons. I know this by now. *kicks self again*

(When I'm well enough, one day, sometime, never, I shall sign up for ALL THE EXCHANGES. And run some. And ficathons. All of them. Well, maybe, lol.)


2. While not doing NPT, I did quite a lot of family history (tidying, small bits of transcribing and typing up mostly, but more and more consistently than I've managed for six years), which is amazing. If I have been quiet lately, that was one of the reasons.


3. Also I wrote some more ficlets (while not writing my NPT fic, I know, I know. I should be able to do it; it's just never quite that simple). Two more for the meme, one for the Commentfest (it hasn't entirely ended yet):
