lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
I did actually make some icons for NaArMaMo that weren't from Enemy at the Door. Here are the rest (barring a few from Ripper Street that I hope to make a full set out of sometime) - mini sets on a theme for each day, in most cases.

Title: No Bones Broken, No Harm Done
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1395
Characters/Pairings: Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer
Notes/Warnings: None.
Summary: The last thing Frank wants is tea and sympathy; it only complicates things.

For the [community profile] hc_bingo square “assault”. Hopefully, there won't be any more Public Eye for this, but I had ideas for 4 out of 5 squares and then... well, what fictional character do I write who's most likely to get beaten up? (And he spent at least 18 months in Brighton. It must have happened at some point during that time.)

For [community profile] hc_bingo square "Learning to be loved".

I made a Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer fanvid, Helen POV. I didn't even think that was actually possible, but apparently it is if you're me and you don't have much in the way of standards when it comes to vidding. In the middle of looking for some thoughtful, quiet old 50s song or an instrumental piece that would do, I somehow wound up with this. (I worried for a bit about whether or not it still met the prompt, but I've decided it does. I hope.)

They Don't Know About Us
Public Eye: Nobody else understands what Mrs Mortimer sees in Frank. (Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer, S4 fanvid.)

Music: They Don't Know by Kirsty MacColl

Or, in short, this is what happens in S4 according to Mrs Mortimer. Not particularly spoilery as such. Bookended with a little S6. Whether it's ironic, or horribly shippy, or just that Mrs Mortimer is right in fundamentals (and the long-term) if not the immediate outcome, I don't know.

Let's finish this meme, since I've said all I need to in the vid...

26. Favourite quotes

I included a bunch in my big Public Eye post, so I'll just find some different ones I also like, except for this, which is my favourite:

Helen: "A man seems to think all he has to say to a woman is 'I need you' - she'll pack a nightie and a toothbrush and run!"


And the final questions... )


(Now, what show next for this meme? ;-p)

My [community profile] unconventionalcourtship fic! Which is long, obscure, and very unexciting! Amazing!

Between Strangers (8918 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Public Eye (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer
Characters: Frank Marker, Helen Mortimer
Additional Tags: Snowed In, Trope Subversion/Inversion, 1940s, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Pre-Series, Curtain Fic
Summary: Trying to sell encyclopedias in the middle of the worst winter of the century wasn’t the best idea to begin with. And now Frank Marker's wound up trying to rescue a single mother and her baby who’ve been abandoned at a bus stop, and all he’s got to hand is a car that won’t go and several dozen copies of The A-Z of Everything... (Beta-ed by Persiflage).

It doesn't require canon knowledge... but I can't pretend much happens. There is snow and a cute car (I provided a link at the end). And it is a fic. I can say that much for it...

(I very much hope "proper" Public Eye fans don't look at AO3 much. I would probably be strung up for writing Romance novel-inspired Frank/Mrs Mortimer, I really would.)

I said I might finish the other fic today. It is Public Eye, but it's also a series of crossover vignettes & (I hope) no real knowledge of PE is needed.

I said, when I first watched S4, that there ought to be a companion series where Mrs Mortimer sorted out people's problems at her B&B and though, really, she is too sensible for that to work in the same way, it's still enough for a fic.

Winter Where You Are (4595 words) by lost_spook

Summary: A seaside boarding house out of season can be a strange place at times - you never know who'll wind up staying for the night...


(Or, as ever, it seemed like a good idea at the time.)

Since I seem to be determined to inflict fanfic on the world, here's a Frank Marker & Helen Mortimer picspam. I went to do something else, and then made these graphics under the heading of "research for fic". Probably a bit spoilery, at least as far as this relationship goes, but I'd imagine most people aren't going to watch it, so...

A tale of two mugs )

I wrote Public Eye fic! (I know, I know, but I really didn't think I could manage something for it properly, but I quite like this. One day I will stop being obscure, honest, but for today, I finally achieved Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer fic, and that'll do me for now. ;-D Mind, I only just finished this; I shall probably find a lot of horrible mistakes in the morning...)

Title: Baby, Don’t Get Hooked On Me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages/PG
Word Count: 2284
Characters/Pairings: Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer
Notes/Warnings: None. Set between S4 & 5. No real spoilers.
Summary: When the music stops, you change your partner, that’s how it goes.

Or: Frank Marker & Helen Mortimer - Fake relationship & Curtainfic (The curtainfic bit doesn’t count. All Public Eye is mundane and domestic. That’s the point of it. Tropes, however, need a good deal of hammering before they’ll fit. That was the challenge.)
