lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
From [livejournal.com profile] belantana, via some discussion: what sort of Element would be played by Nicola Walker (Ruth from Spooks)? With the rider that it had to be an actual element, and none of these silly metal alloys or gemstones. (Also, apparently, I fail at keeping belantana’s prompts to the length these things were supposed to be. I blame Nicola Walker - she'd make a lovely Element, and I'd like to try Antimony in a proper story. Which this isn't, not really...)

Title: Antimony
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2121
Characters/Pairings: Antimony (OC), Steel, Sapphire, Silver.
Notes/Warnings: No spoilers. Mid/late 1980s, so post-series. (I did think about checking more than my memories of using a ZX Spectrum… but then realised that once you factor the way the games used to differ anyway, plus a sinister time thingy and four Elements, that would be silly. Any errors are due to the evil work of Time. Or Silver. Or Antimony.)

Summary: Sapphire and Steel need help from a different specialist after accidentally losing Silver inside a computer game.

(with unexpected naked!Ancelyn, as I promised Clocket).

Naturally, possible spoilers for the S2 episodes Danse Macabre and Mother Redcap under the cut (although I have done my very best not to reveal any of the how/whodunnit aspect, I promise!):

In which Peter Davison turns up at the door dressed as a vicar and Jonathan wants Maddy to check his underwear... )

In which Jonathan chats up WPC Nicola while Maddy discovers that Ancelyn (all right, Marcus Gilbert) has an interesting hobby... )

I didn't have much brain for doing all the things I meant to be doing last night, so had another go taking screenshots from the first 10 mins or so of Spooks 2.6. Therefore no spoilers whatsoever (other than what's also given away by the DVD cover in terms of Characters Who Survived S1), just everyone (Matthew Macfadyen, Keeley Hawes, David Oyelowo, Peter Firth, Megan Fellows) looking pretty in formal wear. And stolen, tea-stained documents...

That was the part I had difficulty with, too )

I know, this is getting boring. But I never saw a Ruth fanvid that wasn't thoroughly spoilery until today.

This is lovely: so Ruth (and pretty safe for the uninitiated to watch, methinks).

It's by CutandRunAway and called Momentum

Edit Talking of Ruth; [livejournal.com profile] bugiarda has just written a lovely Ruth meets Nine vignette Differences of the Body. (And now I just want more! Oh, over to me, did you say...?
