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:

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

Before I forget, here are some great vids I've enjoyed that were posted over the holiday period:

First, an absolutely lovely multi-era DW vid, following companions after they've left the Doctor. It brightened my day yesterday, so here's passing it on to you all if you haven't already caught it:

The vid post for it is here. It's a joyous thing, but the best bit is the Brigadier, obviously.


***

And two more [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales:

The Past Is Neither Dead Nor Distant (PG, 5182 words. Edward Iveson/Julia Graves.) Julia doesn’t like strangers in the house (or mushroom soup), and Edward doesn’t want to talk about his mother. It all comes down to much the same thing, in the end.

And this, which I had far too much fun making (it's technically an art piece, but actually fic in the shape of letters):

Wolves at the Door (and Other Unlikely Tales) (All ages, art. Edward Iveson.) That time the summer term was one unlikely calamity after another (at least, according to Edward).


***

If I'm a little erratic about commenting for a while, bear with me. At this point in August I seem to suffer from stress (summer is a month too long, apparently, and the strain turns into stress just about... now; so it's been for the past three years & at least this year I went "aha!" and stopped before things got worse), so until I feel a little better (which will be very soon! maybe even today!), I shall focus on the creative things.

Take care. ♥

It's just possible that I got a wee bit carried away writing that massive Whoniverse orgy that I would never write. *cough*

(Minus any actual orgy-ing, of course. Obviously.)

[livejournal.com profile] clocketpatch: "DW: ALL of the Doctors and Companions (including Big Finish, Book, Expanded universe, Cushing, and Curse of the Fatal Death Companions and Doctors) have a massive Space!Orgy together on Pluto."

But the thing is, while I would never be the person to write an orgy, I have always had a weakness for multi-era crack...

There might be 2000 words behind the cut... )

I came across this multi-era companion farewell vid and rather liked it. (Think it has everyone up to the date of its creation as far as I can see. Aw.)

Story: Ten Times the Doctor (Almost) Got Hitched
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 5700
Characters/Pairings: First Doctor, Second Doctor, Ben Jackson, Polly Wright, Third Doctor, Liz Shaw, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Fourth Doctor, Harry Sullivan, Sarah Jane Smith, Fifth Doctor, Tegan Jovanka, Turlough, Sixth Doctor, Evelyn Smythe, Seventh Doctor, Bernice Summerfield, Eighth Doctor, Charley Pollard, Ninth Doctor, Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, Tenth Doctor
Warnings: Technically spoilers for the CIN clip, but I really, really wouldn't worry. However, I should apologise for the shocking use of historical figures.

Summary: You wouldn't believe how difficult it is for a passing Time Lord not to get married a famous woman completely by accident. Seriously. Happens all the time.

Another one for which I hold DbyA to blame - I have lots of other things to be writing! But I suppose I did very much enjoy writing most of it, especially Seven and Eight.

As usual, be patient until okayed onto Teaspoon.

Especially for Valentine's Day (well, really, I lie. That was just coincidence, but allow me to pretend to be an evil mastermind) - A series of multi-Doctor drabbles about that intelligent, preferably scientific and older female (well, not older than him, obviously) as the Type he tends to have as his romantic ideal. Even if he continually falls for people who don't match the profile. Oh, the hypocrite...

Title: Love & Science
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Characters: Doctors 1-8, 10 (but all of them eventually) and various others.
Rating: All Ages
Summary (see above!)
Link: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=29206
Other: Collection of Drabbles.

Plus, although this is still very new, a related series of AUs for the companions, based on their habit of leaving to marry people they've only just met:

Title: Happy Endings, Hasty Exits
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Characters: Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Captain Yates, Sergeant Benton, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan. (So far).
Rating: All Ages
Summary: "I want to stay on this planet and marry X!" Some roads not taken. Some of them will be very silly, some very short, some long and some a whole lot more plausible than what really happened...
