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).

I've managed a few of the AU Meme ficlets so far (and a few still yet to come). I have been posting them to AO3 & of course in the comments, but in the absence of other things going on, I thought I might as well round them up here, too:

Adam Adamant & Georgina Jones )

Harry Pearce/Ruth Evershed )

Leela )

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:

Tracking the Weather (589 words) by Annariel
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sapphire and Steel, Doctor Who (1963)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Liz Shaw (Doctor Who), Silver (S&S)
Summary: Aircraft and ships are vanishing in the wake of the Hurricane. More than seem natural.

And a wonderful, long fic from [personal profile] kaffyr, too:

A Vein of Silver (4083 words) by kaffyrutsky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who, Doctor Who (1963), Sapphire and Steel
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Liz Shaw & Silver
Characters: Silver (S&S), Liz Shaw (Doctor Who), Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, Third Doctor, The Doctor's TARDIS
Additional Tags: Strangers, Uneasy Allies, Fighting Time
Summary: Let the wall be built, the stranger said; Dr. Liz Shaw considers her options in a laboratory where something's gone wrong with Time.

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:

Out for the Count (972 words) by JohnAmendAll
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dracula (TV 1968)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Mina Harker/Lucy Weston
Characters: Mina Harker, Lucy Weston, John Seward
Additional Tags: Stealth Crossover, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Fluff, Fix-It
Summary: Lucy has been saved from the Count, and wishes to make her own desires known.

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 started this ages ago & then found it again just now, and have finished it off & here it is! (I think I'd done it because I only semi-did this meme last time, and then everyone else did it properly and I thought I should too. Looking at the results, obviously I was right.)

I really am working through my overdue posts here (\o/). A small post of some icons I made, and a few fic recs for Liz Shaw, in tribute. I started this at the time, but was interrupted by my parents' visit and the resulting tiredness. The recs are more of a list, this once. (But they are all very good, I promise.)

ETA: And for those who don't follow [livejournal.com profile] dw_straybunnies, this month's challenge is Liz Shaw and there are lots of Liz-centric prompts up there to steal and write (or just any Liz fic). There has been one so far (\o/) and so I have prepared a banner for participants. (And I want one myself now... :lol:)
lost_spook: (dw - Liz Shaw 2)
I'm trying to think what to say here, but Caroline John has died


ETA: On a purely self-related note, it's weird... I never set out for this to be the case, but I think in terms of sheer wordage, I've wound up writing far more for Liz Shaw than any other companion. Even if I am terribly unscientific myself. (And, damn, damn, damn, this is one of the reasons I never write death!fic. I Googled to check first, and... Anyway. Sad news.)
lost_spook: (dw - Liz Shaw 2)
Um. Yes. I'm sorry? For one thing, I had this written out in rough before my birthday. Had I known I was going to get such a lovely Liz/Silver story then, I would have not troubled my head with writing one. Which turned into several scenarios, and then this. And also there's a sad ending (but once it became more than one meeting, I think that was inevitable, much as I usually avoid death!fic. Well, unless it's OCs. I kill them off ruthlessly. Or actual canon). Anyway, I wrote it, I typed it up; here it is:

Title: Scientific Spirit (or Five Times Liz Shaw Met Silver)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 7300
Characters/Pairings: Liz Shaw/Silver
Notes/Warnings: Mild/telepathic/ambiguous/implied [human/Element] shippage, possible hurt/comfort, sort of major character death. (Um. My warnings for this are a bit rubbish.) No spoilers for either series. (It should be accessible to DW fans without knowledge of S&S, or I hope so, anyway. I'm not sure about the other way around.)

Summary: The problem is that Liz Shaw always likes to try and understand a mystery…

On Teaspoon | On AO3
lost_spook: (Liz Shaw 2)
One of those belated but not-forgotten crossover meme fics. This one for [livejournal.com profile] curuchamion, who wanted Liz Shaw to meet Ruth (Nancy) Blackett from Swallows and Amazons. I was going to get one of the books, but never got the chance, so I hope the characterisation works. (I think the time scheme is about right, though).

Let's Pretend

lost_spook: (1980s UNIT)
Normal service will be resumed at some point with memes and catching up with people and all, but I posted Chapter 1 of the next UNIT fic this evening:

UNIT: Silver Bullet

(Waiting for the okay onto Teaspoon).

Unlike the last one, this is back to proper UNIT stuffs, with monsters and running around, and a cameo from Liz Shaw... and possibly one or two other unexplained happenings (all will become clear in time).

(But I had a lovely weekend!)

Story: Til We Meet Again (Don't Make It Anytime Soon)

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2237
Characters/Pairings: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Liz Shaw, Doris, Fiona Lethbridge-Stewart, Third Doctor.
Warnings: None. Except for my random speculations about Doris that are totally non-canonical.

Summary: The Brigadier returns to find three women waiting in his office. This is probably the most unlikely thing that's happened at UNIT yet, barring aliens.

[livejournal.com profile] primsong left this idea lying about on [livejournal.com profile] dw_straybunnies and before I knew where I was there was fic before breakfast.

One more, this time, for [livejournal.com profile] akashasheiress. I hung on, trying to think so something not so completely shallow and silly, but, erm, well...

And to [livejournal.com profile] pedanther and [livejournal.com profile] jjpor: okay, I admit it, your prompts are tough work and I will get back to you on that as soon as I can. ;-) I only have unsatisfactory roughs, but I am on the train a fair bit this week, which should do the trick.

Also, I updated Winged Shadows with Part Three (Only the last part to go, yay. Not up on Teaspoon yet.)

November 1985: There’s alien slime and tea and explosions, but that’s just UNIT. Now Colonel Crichton’s trying to wage a war with words instead of guns, Torchwood want their ghost back and sometimes it takes more than winning to save a life. (But after that, they’ll be right back to tea and explosions and people turning green and saving the world.)

Title: Five Times Liz Shaw and the Brigadier Saved the World

Rating: All Ages
Summary: An AU - Season Seven without the Doctor.  Surprisingly the world doesn't end.
Link: See here for Autons, Silurians... )
I wrote the beginning and end of this before UNIT: Unfinished, so that was still my last Brig/Liz story (she claims).  And since I kept claiming that Season 7 would have been fine without the Doctor, I thought I'd better prove it.  (Sorry Doctor, nothing personal...)

Brigadier, Liz Shaw, Third Doctor, Sergeant Benton.

How could this pairing not have been done?  Now they have this bit of madness from me, (which was inspired by comments made by sleepy_sheep in her journal) instead of something actually romantic.


The story )
lost_spook: (RTBrigLiz)
I've finally posted it.  With not an awful lot of alterations.  Not sure what that was all about...


Um, I just deleted this story... 

I'd delete this post, but I will put it up again shortly.  I'm really beginning to regret giving it that title now.  I've lost confidence again.  Experience tells me that this means there's still something that needs fixing.


Just wrote another Brigadier and Liz story.  I very nearly posted it yesterday, but swiped it off Teaspoon just in time, realising that (ironically) it wasn't finished.  So you must particularly appreciate the ending, as it wasn't there the first time round, along with one or two other tweaks.

Anyway, an attempt to tie up all my loose ends.  UNIT are having a dull week until Liz phones the Brigadier and asks to see him.  Of course, after that everyone starts causing trouble in the way that only UNIT regulars can.
