Okay, so for everyone who said I should definitely finish off #1 when I did the WIP meme the other day, here it is:

Police Boxes Don’t Just Vanish, Do They? (4748 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who (1963), Public Eye (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, Frank Marker
Additional Tags: Crossover, POV Outsider, POV First Person, Private Investigators
Summary: For one private detective, missing persons cases and inexplicable vanishing police boxes seem to go together

Also here on Teaspoon.

I hope people aren't too be put off by the obscure crossover - I was making use of Public Eye to do an Outsider POV for Doctor Who. (I kind of hope no one who actually knows Public Eye reads it, really. Bit of a nerve to go round attempting writing Frank Marker POV on this short acquaintance, but I thought it'd work rather nicely from the Doctor Who angle. They intersect quite naturally, but come from two very different viewpoints. /o\)

(I wanted to add in a section where someone from Polly's family employs Marker to buy off this random sailor she's moved in with, but realised he'd be in Birmingham by that point, so it was a bit hard to come up with any realistic reason why that would happen. Life is so hard at times... Still, it wouldn't have actually involved a police box, so maybe it's all for the best.)

Various links to things that have pleased me over the last day or two:

(And, yes, one of these links actually does combine both, so there!)

[livejournal.com profile] dbskyler has a post of fanvid recs for Brigadier/Nicholas Courtney tributes. This is a good thing. (Almost all my flist are friends with each other these days, but there may be some who aren't, so the link is here in case.)

There's finally a new prompt up at [livejournal.com profile] dw_straybunnies. It is of course Brigadier-related. (How could it not be?)

[livejournal.com profile] b7friday had last week's prompt as Sarkoff in tribute to a memorable one-off character played by T P McKenna (who has also passed away of late) and following the news about Nicholas Courtney, [livejournal.com profile] kalypso_v saw fit to write this ficlet. (All ages, 400 words.) All you need to know is re B7 is that this is in the future. Sarkoff is an anti-Federation President with an interest in Earth history. The Federation are nasty. As usual, in B7, the good guys are losing, but wait... Who's this? (ETA: I didn't properly explain that it is lovely, and made me smile very, very much.)

Also I found, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] aelfgyfu_mead this comparison chart for Star Trek and Blake's 7

It is so true, it made me grin rather a lot. (Although I think these days Janeway would probably question 8. And 22.)

*sniggers again at 18, 19 and 12. And 16. And 8.*
lost_spook: (dw - brigadier)
What a thing to wake up to - and I can see my flist is saying everything that I might say, and more, and better, so I'll link to this news article that says it all very succintly, rather than waffle.

And so I'll just do what I always do, and make fic recs, because the Brigadier would never have been the awesome character everyone loves to read/write about were it not for the immense charm and likeability of Nicholas Courtney, who with his seemingly endless fondness for the role and the show became far much more to everyone involved than 'just' an actor who was in it for a few years.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
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.

One Small Hitch )

Also, I updated Winged Shadows with Part Three (Only the last part to go, yay. Not up on Teaspoon yet.)
lost_spook: (brigadier)
It's now complete (well, when okayed onto Teaspoon), and the guest DW character will be revealed in the epilogue, but I don't think it'll be a shock to anyone.

See here for the story.

You know, if you want to, and you don't mind a whole lot of OCs not doing very much in the 1980s. ;-)

1. I've been a bit quiet on the fic front, having been tired lately (and stories go too flat, so I had to leave them all waiting once I'd done the [livejournal.com profile] tardis_gen one). However, talking of [livejournal.com profile] tardis_gen, I notice that they've posted the first two stories - yay! - and nice pieces of work they are, too, If the rest are as good this is going to be an excellent ficathon.

2. I hadn't forgotten StarCrossed and it's now got a lot more links on it and looks at least a little less random. And then I thought of another, similar idea, but I'll let you in on that when I've actually put something sensible on it. (Yes, mad librarian trying to catalogue things again, I know.)

3. In the process of this I had an idea for an Angel crossover of my own. (I do rather love Angel). And then, today, when I finally was able to write again, what did I do? My 1851 story, the Hex/Martha one, said Angel crossover or the next Happy Ending? No, I decided to do a Polly/Brig bit for [livejournal.com profile] whoniverse1000; but it did what all my attempts for that cause do, and went long and gen. It's here, or will be when it gets okayed on Teaspoon. (It's called The Polly Effect. I went on a train today. I pretty much always end up with a fic idea after going on a train.)

Edit: And, and, and, someone just reviewed my Really Obscure piece of fanfic.  I stuck it on ff.net about three weeks ago, since it might as well sit there (in the British Comedy section, On The Up, not being counted as a show) and someone else who watched the show has just given it love.  *dances for joy* (Not that I didn't really appreciate your reading it, too [livejournal.com profile] bugiarda!!)

Title: How the West Was Lost
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Characters: Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
Rating: All Ages / PG (There is much typical Carry On-ness and some comic violence).
Other: Set between Inferno and Terror of the Autons.  Crossover with Carry On Cowboy.

: What the good citizens of Stodge City want is a US peace Marshal to run the Rumpo Kid out of town. What they get is a confused sanitation engineer, demure Miss Oakley with a rifle in her trunk, an elegant Time Lord who's the livin' spit of the dead Sheriff and a sceptical Brigadier who might just be the only man in the town who can shoot straight.  The Wild West was never like this...

: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=28657

: I don't own Doctor Who; the BBC does.  And I wouldn't dream of laying claim to the Carry On franchise, which is property of Gerald Thomas & Peter Rogers (I presume)

(Edit: It's now complete.)

As I noted a few entries below, Carry On Cowboy has Jon Pertwee as the ill-fated Sheriff, Angela Douglas (aka Doris Lethbridge-Stewart) as Annie Oakley, and Peter Butterworth as the Doc (The Meddling Monk).  It's crying out for a comic crossover with many dodgy accents and much trying of the Brigadier's patience.

Title: Five Times Liz Shaw and the Brigadier Saved the World
Author: Lost Spook
Characters: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Liz Shaw, Sergeant Benton (Brig/Liz)
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...)
lost_spook: (brigadier)

Okay, I had fun watching Carry on Cowboy, cos little things please me.  Angela Douglas, who often plays the seemingly sweet and innocent heroine in several Carry Ons also ended up being Doris and marrying the Brigadier in Doctor Who.  I only realised this recently and I was prepared to entertain myself with the idea that the Brig eventually marries Annie Oakley (which is perfect, of course), but it turns out she's also Jon Pertwee's daughter in this one.

I know.  Got to find a life.  But isn't that great?  It cries out for crossover madness somewhere...

Brig/Liz, for the Whoniverse1000 challenge here: http://community.livejournal.com/whoniverse1000/
(All Ages)
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.

I shouldn't have waited all this time to find LiveJournal and set up an account.  I've got probably about 50-60 fics between Teaspoon and TTR to go back over...

So, because I've been through quite a lot of them already, I thought I might try and think about a 'top 5'.  (Doing my top 20 of other people's will definitely be fun for another day).  Let's start somewhere...

1. Home?
Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, Captain Yates, The Master, plus Ten and Donna.  (All ages)

Blurb )
Extract )
lost_spook: (BrigLiz)
 OK, last time I collect a bunch of my stories together.  I'm only doing this as I can't stop them being divided between the TTR archive and Teaspoon.

Blurb )

So here goes:
(All Third Doctor, Brigadier, Liz Shaw, All Ages)
UNIT: Haunting (Brigadier, Liz, Haunted House)
UNIT: Invisible Man (The Brigadier gets turned invisible and it's up to Liz to come up with a solution. Post Silurians)
UNIT: Undercover (Shameless cliches; Part One is a sort of comic prologue to the Brigadier and Liz going on a disastrous date in Part Two)
UNIT:Framed (The Brigadier gets suspended; Liz and the Doctor investigate)
UNIT: How to Say Goodbye (There are some things the Doctor can't understand)

Redefinition (Alistair wants to ask Elizabeth Shaw out, but a fluffy high school story is never going to work in H G Wells).

lost_spook: (brigadier)
Of course, it's not only the Simm Master who likes to tell stories at the creche.  All sorts of characters have been roped in, either by Izzy, or trying to carry out some evil plot.  

Other narrators (1)
Barbara - Izzy asks the most sensible person she can think of to tell the children a classic story.  She was thinking Winnie-the-Pooh, but Barbara tried Pride and Prejudice.

Waffle )
(Please note I wasn't clear about which chapters should get archived, so I'll have to link to each part separately, otherwise Part 1 doesn't have the obvious joke.  It still should be better, though).

Part One:

Part Two:

Part Three:

Part Four:

Part Five:

Part Six:

With sincere apologies to both the Brigadier and Jane Austen.
