A Robots/Artificial Intelligences Hurt/Comfort recs list for [community profile] hc_bingo square "Robots/androids". I widened the definition out to include all AI (but there are at least 10 recs that feature more unambiguous androids/robots, just to make sure I'm definitely covered on the challenge requirements).

I'd been hoping to get back and read some more Yuletide fic and make another recs post, and Day Three of [community profile] snowflake_challenge is to rec at least three fanworks, so I'm killing two birds with one stone here, with another selection of recs from this year's Yuletide, (though actually I gave up around the end of M. One day I will have ability to read enough online, but this year is not that point so I didn't read many long fics in the same fandoms, so omissions are frequently to do with that rather than lack of quality):

13 recs in Cadfael, Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Discworld, Eternal Law, The Importance of Being Earnest, Miss Marple, Pushing Daisies, Georgette Heyer, & The Sarah Jane Adventures )

Hastily, before reveals this afternoon! There are heaps of things I haven't even looked at, stuff I probably didn't bookmark, some of these I might not yet have commented on, but let's have a look before we all cease to be anonymous.

(And, of course, not forgetting my wonderful gifts, all recced here - Chalet School, Miss Marple & Ten Stupidest Things I've Heard Since Richard III's Remains Were Uncovered.)

21 recs in 17 Fandoms - Cold Comfort Farm, Dead Like Me, Emma, Georgette Heyer, Ghost Soup, The Good Life, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Love, Actually, The Mummy, North and South, Northanger Abbey, Red Dwarf, Sarah Jane Adventures, Ten Stupidest Things, and While You Were Sleeping )

I've barely scratched the surface and have been mostly working through alphabetically. Until my parents' internet cut out, and after I'd finally read my own gifts to my own satisfaction, I did have a bit where I could even read quite long things (ish), which was fun. And while some of these have been recced a lot, others really haven't that I've seen, so here goes:

19 recs in 15th C RPF, Blake's 7, Brittas Empire, Enchanted Glass, Fire & Hemlock, Ghost Soup Infidel Blue, Inspector Alleyn Mysteries, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Julius Caesar, Madeleine L'Engle/Doctor Who, Matilda, Measure for Measure, Monkey Island, New Tricks & Sarah Jane Adventures )

(My Mum's laptop is great for reading stuff on AO3, but not so good for me actually doing stuff, even plus rl things and tiredness, so don't be misled into thinking I am actually here. ;-p)

But really, I have to say something because Yuletide! I had five gifts in the main collection. Truly. Five!! (Well, four and a half, one is gifted both to me and another; I think I must own the half with the penguin). I haven't moved onto any other fics yet, although so many wonderful things there because I've been trying to read mine. (I have now, and \o/ although I really need to read the longer ones again.) But if any of my Dear Writers are reading this (and I have a strong feeling two of them may well be), then thank you! Not only are they all great in very different ways, but also for my sort of happy gloating as a new fic appeared each day. I've been spoiled rotten already, and I still have two Madness fics tomorrow. So thank you! You all made me so happy! ♥

Anyway, the fics, for they are marvellous and should be read!

Five recs - mine all mine btw - in Blake's 7 15th C RPF and Sarah Jane Adventures )

In other news, I somehow managed to post four fics in the main collection (!) and if anyone wants to guess, you're welcome. I could make you an icon of your choice if you're right, if you wish. (Although maybe not if EVERYONE gets it right - one is probably rather obvious!)

I'm reccing on [livejournal.com profile] calufrax again this week (they did not get many volunteers when they last asked so I went for it; I can't be worse than a non-existent reccer) and am oddly terrified and feel like a fraud. Luckily, my bookmarks are still all full of nice things as yet-unrecced. And, besides, [livejournal.com profile] eve11 made it to 50 recs recently - and informed me (when I congratulated her) that I was on 49. Much to my shock. So now I've made it to 50 as well! (Er. That wasn't the only reason I volunteered again, but it was a factor, maybe... :lol:)

Anyway, I meant to post this here yesterday and forgot - I'm sure it will amuse quite a few of you as much as it did me: [livejournal.com profile] touchdownpossum made an excellent/ funny K9/Mr Smith fanvid:

ETA: Oh, damn. I knew I'd completely forget to crosspost and just be erratic and inconsistent.

So there's not much going on, and I couldn't resist retrying the meme using last names. Some couples stayed together despite the odds: Evie Eliott & Eowyn, Frobisher & Gandalf, Maddy & Maid Marian, and Servalan & Seven. The results were mostly much scarier than last time, but it did throw up some things that were amusing - and one or two I want badly now:

More mayhem and scary pairings )

Meme found in the wild: Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing, etc. Treat us to some commentary once you're done.

I thought it'd be fun... I hadn't quite realised what a weird jumble of characters I have - some of them are there more for the action in the icon than the character. So, in most cases, let's say that instead of a commentary, a horrified silence might be more appropriate?

(Actually, it turned out better than I expected. For the first half of the alphabet, anyway.)

38 random pairings and an odd man out )

It occurred to me part-way through this that while I had excluded Doctor Who (so that it didn't take up all but one of the 30 days) - and DW for me always includes the main lines of audios and novels, as they were each intended as genuine continuations when they started - that there were two DW spin-offs, that would never get a look-in if I had the whole of the show to play with, so...

She is no witch... she is an angel... )

... to say I finally got around to posting the [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking stories I wrote (or most of them) into the community's AO3 collection. So, apologies those of you who may suddenly find a note to say you've got a gift, and then it's only that!

If people want to know the links are under the cut - that share feature is very, very handy! (Two of these I have already posted to Teaspoon, of course.)

DW, Press Gang, Blake's 7 etc )

If anyone prefers not to have their stocking filler archived there, let me know & I'll delete it.
