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...

Okay, since I failed at my last prompt. For [livejournal.com profile] jjpor, in lieu of Bambera/Ancelyn (for the moment at least), will you accept Docherty's exit?

January 1984 )

I think I've just lost any drabble-writing skills I had now.

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: Tenth Doctor, Colonel Crichton, Nat, Tilly, Sergeant Kennedy, Captain Evered etc.

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.

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.

After going from one extreme to another (1 being: "I don't think I can straighten this one into anything I can actually post!" and 2: "Hey, what if I added in an extra Missing Scene where..." *rolls eyes*), here's the last Missing Scene from Lonely House.

It's very daft but oddly pivotal. (And please take it as read that everyone looks very pretty in their best.)

Summary: UNIT are just no good at social occasions that don’t include monsters. And Nat is trying his best to be sensible, but nobody else is helping, not even the Colonel.

February 1986 )
lost_spook: (Ruth!)
The other 'missing scenes' for Lonely House happened after the events of that story and before those of Stardust and therefore could hardly be included, although this one I considered tagging on, but I couldn't think of any way of doing it that wouldn't be weird. But they fed into Nat's conversations with Evelyn nevertheless.

As promised - missing scenes from my UNIT series. (Look, two people asked, okay...)

Title UNIT: Stardust
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: WIP
Characters: Sixth Doctor, Evelyn Smythe, the Master, Colonel Crichton, various OC 80s UNIT members.
Summary: October 1986: The Doctor and Evelyn arrive at UNIT just as the Colonel and his team are investigating the arrival of some mysterious aliens. Worse, the Doctor suspects a very familiar foe may be to blame.

Well, here we go again... I hope this works, what with juggling all these characters, but look! I wroted something with the Doctor actually in it. ;-)

Six and Evelyn, too, who are rather fun by themselves anyway. No Evil Torchwood this time, but the Master is nasty enough all by himself.

As usual, you'll need to patient until it appears on Teaspoon. (Well, you know, assuming everyone's not rolling their eyes and going "Not another of those UNIT fics...")

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.)

Fic commentary for UNIT: Transition. Spoilers for the story and also for Image of the Fendahl. Requested by [livejournal.com profile] jjpor.

I started writing this sensibly last night and then John posted the suggestion of character commentaries and being used to writing for This Time Round, I’d already been having hard work squashing, and well, this is what happened (probably in a back room somewhere in the Round):

Read more... )
lost_spook: (brigadier)
I've just posted it here. I don't know when it'll get okayed, of course.

The Colonel arrives at Weston Hall, Sarah appears, so does Torchwood's agent. I apologise for rather large amount of stuff with the original characters but it needs it to work. It is very dialogue-heavy so easy going, anyway (hopefully) and Bambera and Crichton try to out-terse each other. (Bambera wins, obviously).

Title: UNIT: Strange Weapons
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All Ages / Teen
Characters: Colonel Crichton, Bambera, Sarah Jane Smith, K9

Summary: UNIT 1985: Good scientific advisors are hard to find. Dr Webber discovers why when he’s expected to deal with zombies, aliens and Torchwood on his second day and his only help is a tin dog and a ghost. Colonel Crichton and Sarah Jane are planning an exit strategy of sorts and Bambera is trying to keep her men from joining the opposing forces. They'll all be lucky to survive.

Some explanation under here ).

As of this evening, still awaiting approval on Teaspoon.
lost_spook: (Default)
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?

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!

Title: Happy Endings 9: Remnants
Author: [personal profile] lost_spook
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 7775
Summary: Defeat the monster, get held for questioning the morning after. Adam Colby wants to find the dog and move on, but UNIT, Torchwood and the local police are still far more interested in what happened at Fetch Priory. Luckily, Leela stayed with the Tylers and she's on hand to help.

Well, I said you'd be safe from this one for a while: sorry. I was meant to be writing other fic today (I was allowing myself that), but I couldn't help myself typing this up. I enjoyed writing it a ridiculous amount and am dancing for glee at having finished and posted it. Whether anyone else will like it, who knows? I suspect I'm being far too obscure for my own good. (Erm. Yay for minor Classic Who characters?)

Ridiculous waffle about the story )
It is completely spoilery if you haven't seen Image of the Fendahl, but on the other hand, if you don't mind spoilers, it is mainly a story in its own right. Shouldn't be too baffling, I hope.

Anyway, that's quite enough. At some point it'll turn up on Teaspoon.
