Title: UNIT: Night Sentries
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 4143
Characters/Pairings: Nat Webber, Sergeant Kennedy
Notes/Warnings: None. (1980s UNIT fic, set about a week after UNIT: Strange Weapons, so very early in the series - no spoilers.)
Summary: April 1985: The Sergeant thinks it’s quiet. Too quiet. Dr Webber thinks that’s a cliché, but that’s the thing about clichés – sometimes they’re true.

For [livejournal.com profile] jjpor in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 245: worried by silence, the sentries whisper – 1980s UNIT. Possibly belated birthday fic, should you want to call it that. (Writing OC fic for that purpose always seems a tad egotistical of me, but at least there's a bit of Sergeant Kennedy this time...)

UNIT: Night Sentries (on Teaspoon)
lost_spook: (carry on - writing fanfic)
For the ficlet meme, the only one I've managed to do (at least so far) - for [personal profile] jjpor who gave me the prompt “Nat/Tilly, science leads.” (It's a bit dull, sorry.)

Title: Studies

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 838
Characters/Pairings: Nat Webber, Tilly Holmes, Sergeant Kennedy
Notes/Warnings: None. (Set soon after Stardust, c. Nov 1987).
Summary: Nat wonders if science is really the answer.

Another prompt ficlet (or actual fic, I suppose, flimsy as it is).

From [livejournal.com profile] belantana: Nat and Tilly are stuck in a closet (up to you whether this is before or after they're married!) I assumed from this that at least some mild Nat/Tillyness was required… (Nat and Tilly being my 1980s UNIT OCs from a scarily epic series of Doctor Who fanfics I did a while back. There aren't any particular spoilers here, but I'm not sure it would make sense to anyone who hasn't read at least one of those. Sorry.)

Title: Circles

Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1261
Characters/Pairings: Nat Webber, Tilly Holmes, Sergeant Kennedy (1980s UNIT Ocs).
Notes/Warnings: None.

Summary: It’s just another day at UNIT HQ. There’s an alien visitor and Nat and Tilly find themselves locked in the cupboard – over and over again.

UNIT: Circles )

See here, once it's okayed onto Teaspoon. The first two sections of Part Two. And while not all of this happens yet, in Part Two, UNIT receive a visit from a Torchwood agent, and suddenly Dr Webber's losing his temper, the Captain's giving unlikely orders, Tilly's a canary, and Sergeant Kennedy is a murderer. It's no wonder the Colonel's confused.

(The rest of this section shouldn't be too long in coming, so I may as well say that now...)

Edit: The chapters posted so far are up on Teaspoon (but the rest of Pt Two is yet to come. I did say that...)

Story: UNIT: End Game
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: WIP
Characters/Pairings: 1980s UNIT OCs - Nat Webber, Tilly Webber, Sgt Kennedy, Captain Evered, Anna Taylor, Colonel Ashcombe, Angela Morris.
Warnings: Lots of OCs? (There are telephone calls to actual canon characters in places...)

Summary: October 1987: UNIT's scientific advisor is desperate to leave at the end of the week, but first the world needs saving yet again - and this might be one time too many for everyone.


Not okayed onto Teaspoon yet. And, only ch1 so far - in which Nat annoys everyone. It's all very dramatic...

(And I've not really been busy today - I've been hunting things out from my hard-drive and sorting things mainly. Very lazy, in fact...)
lost_spook: (1980s UNIT 2)
I was planning to write more of my final UNIT 1980s story (so I can get on and write other things), but spent Sunday writing a 1980s UNIT fic sparked off by [livejournal.com profile] belantana and then yesterday writing the following fic, when [livejournal.com profile] jjpor threw yet another plot bunny at me, and this one bit. He suggested Jack should meet my UNIT OCs. And also that this was of course the sort of thing that would make the universe implode and could never happen... Obviously, I had to write it.

Story: Knave of Hearts
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All Ages / PG
Word Count: 4400
Characters/Pairings: Captain Jack Harkness, Colonel Crichton, & my OCs; Tilly Holmes, Nat Webber, Sergeant Kennedy.
Warnings: None, unless anyone is remotely worried about spoilers for my fic UNIT: Strange Weapons. Oh, and I'm not that great at writing Jack, either.

April 1986: There’s a Torchwood agent loose in Colonel Crichton’s UNIT HQ, trying to steal an alien artefact, and nobody knows what he’s really after, but he might settle for chatting up the Sergeant in the meantime...
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!)

More fic

Parts Two and Three of UNIT: Wraiths now up at Teaspoon. (Or more correctly, Pt 2 is up, pt 3 is awaiting the okay. And, yes, they both have Sergeant Kennedy in them.)

And in rl, my housemate is trapped in Crete... 8-o

No ficlets this week - just UNIT fic!

Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages

Characters/Pairings: Nat Webber, Tilly Holmes, Captain Evered, Sergeant Kennedy, Private Robinson, Miss Lonsdale
Warnings: None.

Summary: June 1987: UNIT have some elusive aliens to track down. Meanwhile, there's a new recruit causing trouble, some locals who've taken a dislike to soldiers, and Captain Evered has had a letter. Must be the end of the world, or something like it... (And in which we meet three new characters, and, um, really, not much happens.)

(Just a note, continuity-wise, for those who are following this rather overlong saga, this is before the wedding.)

*Does little dance of joy at getting this launched at last* Fic! It seems like a long while somehow...

Oh, yes, please note: not yet up on Teaspoon.
lost_spook: (Ruth!)
Okay, take two. My misgivings about putting this on Teaspoon, given its OC focus, overtook me, so I whipped it out of the queue and am posting it here instead.

Characters/Pairings: Dr Webber, Tilly Holmes, Sergeant Kennedy, Captain Evered, (plus a Special Guest Appearance in the Epilogue)
Warnings: Absence of DW characters? Some possible cuteness in the Epilogue? None, really.

Summary: May 1987: Colonel Crichton has retired, his replacement’s impressing no one, and now UNIT’s scientific advisor has gone AWOL. What’s a UFO-investigating top secret military outfit to do?

Oh yes yet more UNIT fic )

It isn't okayed onto Teaspoon yet, so please be patient as usual. (It's probably not the best day to post something, either!)

Title: UNIT: The Great Mince Pie Mystery
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 6033
Characters: Colonel Crichton, Sarah Jane Smith, K9, Winifred Bambera, Other

Summary:December 1984: Colonel Crichton is trying to see Sarah Jane and K9 off the premises; elsewhere some vicious little aliens are causing trouble - and they'll eat anything from mince pies to members of staff. It must be Christmas.

A few notes - don't worry, despite being another 1980s UNIT story, it's set earlier and is a standalone bit of nonsense. (For those who have been reading, it does give us the chance to meet another one of the Doctor's successors...)

And since it was set in December 1984 and it seemed wrong not to refer to Band Aid, I... Well, it then seemed good to me to put in references to as many Christmas songs as I could. (Or: It Seemed Funny At The Time).

So, a competition: whoever spots the most songs gets to give me a prompt & I'll write a ficlet or short story over the festive period. Pm me here or via Teaspoon with your answers and prompt and we'll see what happens. (This seems really egotistical, but I think as soon as I say there are refs to songs, some people will look for them & all I can do to make it up to them online is to offer fic. I can't even do icons).

If you want to, pm me by Dec 19th with yr answers & prompt or two &, (given the fact that there won't be a lot of takers), you'll be in with a good chance. Obviously, no adult-rated, graphic prompts (you won't get them and you wouldn't like them if you did) and, sadly, slashy stuff is not my thing either. It doesn't have to be Doctor Who. (I wrote a list of things I will try here, for a meme). I imagine I'd write it rough while I'm home and type it up after I get back, so it would appear around New Year. No one will know who won till then. Most of the quotes/refs are so obvious I might as well have hung tinsel round them, but some are more obscure. Count this 'comp' as my apology. (Christmas stories should be more dark night, candlelight and starlight and hope, but I fail yet again.)

It's an offer and if no one does pm I shall pretend someone does and I'm emailing the fic to them, la la la.

Usual disclaimer: This has not been okayed on to Teaspoon yet. If it doesn't appear, I'll look even sillier.

Title UNIT: Lonely House
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: Teen (for very occasional language & some angst in future chapters).
Characters: Colonel Crichton, Liz Shaw, Original Characters

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.)

More under here )

Just a quick post to say that it is finally finished here and merely awaiting approval. (And it is at least about 800 words shorter than Remnants!!)

For all my moaning about this one when I started it, and for all its obscurity, I feel as bereft as I did when I finished How The West Was Lost. Hmm, what to write next?
lost_spook: (brigadier)
Title: UNIT: Transition
Author: [personal profile] lost_spook
Rating: Teen (for some darker themes and cruelty to animals in Ch1)
Summary: July 1977: UNIT, post-Brigadier. In the aftermath of an explosion at Fetch Priory, Torchwood take their chance to neutralise a diminished UNIT as a threat and they want Professor Colby’s help. Colonel Crichton isn’t prepared to see that happen and Colby isn’t too keen, either, but both are dangerously outnumbered.

(Oh, and one note: I realised I hadn't written in either this or Remnants Crichton's initial meeting with Mrs Tyler, so it is now in Ch1 of this, as it was an accidental omission.)


Explanations here )*

But it does mean I haven't typed up any more of The Devil Is A Gentleman (Fifth Doctor, 1851 fic), nor have I fixed the middle of This Perilous Grace (my [livejournal.com profile] tardis_gen) story and I really should, especially since I can finally talk about it!
