I wrote this for [community profile] hc_bingo for the wildcard square - I chose "Dystopia" from the list. There was no point in writing this, except I wanted to, which is reason enough, but since it's kind of a gratuitous sex scene, basically, and I can't write such things (so here be implied sex scenes without any pr0n at all), I probably should instead have found some way of forcing someone else to watch "Level 7" and then holding them down and making them write it. I don't think I can even guarantee it makes sense in isolation. Still, it gets me a bingo square and that's what counts here.

(And, yes, yes, yes, I did just write slash for an episode of 1960s BBC SF which happens to contain wee!doomed!David Collings. Please send help, I clearly need it.)

[livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks had their second amnesty, and I was really pleased to see that they brought all the previous prompts back into play - v good for a slow(ish) person like me. (Also they have these cute achievement badge thingies now.) So I made things. It's probably as easy to link to the original entries as repost them:

12 Press Gang icons from the S3 ep 'The Last Word', for the Communication challenge.

Not Here (Ficlet, 500 words.) For the 'Anywhere But Here' challenge.

From 'Level 7' (an 1966 episode of the BBC's anthology series Out of the Unknown), much angst, but written to be read without knowledge of the episode. (Because it's unlikely anyone else will have seen it. Unless they're also looking for David Collings things on YT*. It just fitted the prompt so well. Anyway, I want a medal, because I thought it was impossible for my fanfic to get any more obscure, but look! I managed it! (They have a rare fandoms badge and a new fandoms one. I am so going to get those. Virtually all my fandoms are rare or non-existent. *smug*)

Second Take (Primeval ficlet, 635 words. Nick, Claudia, Jenny.) For the Do Over challenge. (This one was a bit last-minute, and a new fandom for me, but the show fitted the challenge, really.)

[livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks is quite fun, because it's open to all fandoms, and all sorts of creative works, and so people have cooked things, drawn things, made a telegram from Wooster to Jeeves and so on. It's quite fascinating to see what other people come up with.

*A thing which I wound up doing to find links for someone else, and amused myself with reading random comments about David Collings from people who don't have a clue who he is. I'm not sure what my favourite was. So many people are still traumatised by Charn from Through the Dragon's Eye, and I'm tickled by the person who thinks he sings like Michael Crawford in Scrooge (!), but I think I'll go for the person who commented on Elizabeth R with: "Babington's a babe. A really stupid babe, but mmf hmm..." :lol: Babington is incredibly stupid.

ETA: Just seen on my flist that Kathryn Joosten's died. I only know her as Mrs Landingham from The West Wing, but that's enough, because... Mrs Landingham.
