Before I disappear for Christmas (and, hey, have a nice one everyone if you're celebrating; good luck with the avoidance if you're not ♥), a few last [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales:

Fish Out of Water (PG, 5022 words. Edward Iveson/Julia Graves, Roderick Howe, Margaret Howe, Jane Howe, Sylvia Howe.) This wasn’t what Edward and Julia had in mind for their first wedding anniversary…

Little by Little (PG, 14x 100 words. 1908, 1923, 1937, 1947, 1952, 1957, 1963, 1972, 1980, 1986, 1991, 1992; John Iveson/Elizabeth Long, Edward Iveson/Julia Graves, Hanne Graves, Christy Graves, Ron Whittaker, Charles Terrell/Marian Dalton, Anna Miller/Louise Murray, Elizabeth Miller, Michael Seaton, Liz Cardew.) Tea and conversation, and hope.

In Memoriam (PG, 1326 words. Edward Iveson, John Iveson, Elizabeth Long.) How does someone say goodbye? (Written for Flavour of the Day: valediction.)

Truce (G, 693 words. Edward Iveson, Elizabeth Long.) It’s been much too long since Edward has seen his mother… (Written for Flavour of the Day: irenic.)

I may pop up again in between, but I may not. And when I am back (in a week), I'll inevitably be very unwell/tired as a result, so I'll just see you all at some point on the other side.

Last night's DW made me write a drabble. Amazing! (It was v good. I loved it. And, oh, I love Clara. ♥ If you don't, I don't need to know about it here. Thank you.)

Friendly Warning
Drabble. Ian Chesterton, Twelfth Doctor. Spoilers for Face the Raven. It is possibly a mean drabble, but it was a thing I thought of this morning.

Friendly Warning )
lost_spook: (spooks - ruth!)
And, as I said, I also made some things for people:

Falling From A Cloud for [personal profile] akashasheiress (Doctor Who, Ben Jackson/Polly Wright, 346 words. Also a 500 prompts ficlet.)

9 Avengers Icons for [personal profile] glinda (Emma Peel, John Steed.) (Liadt sent me some Avengers! I have only watched 1 episode, but once I've watched more, more icons will happen because it was heaps of fun to play with.)

The Gods Walk Among Us for [personal profile] kaffyr (Doctor Who, Ian & Barbara, Drabble.)

Dance of A Lifetime for [personal profile] azarsuerte (Doctor Who, Five/Clara, 169 words. One of the random drabbles - the poetry line was "and the last stroke of midnight dies").

13 Silmarillion icons for [personal profile] moetushie (Mostly from Ted Naismith images.)

13 The Good Life icons for [personal profile] ozqueen (Tom, Barbara, Margo & Jerry and all combinations thereof.)

Radical Actions for [personal profile] liadtbunny (Er. The Fight Against Slavery, Wilberforce/Pitt cake!fic drabble. Yes. /o\)

The Man Who Cried Lion for eve11 (Doctor Who, Six, Evelyn, 329 words. Poetry line: rushed out onto the fire escape screaming Lion! Lion!)

some lovely perilous thing for [personal profile] ein_papier (Once Upon A Time, Belle/Rumplestiltskin, Drabble. Poetry line as the title "some lovely perilous thing".)

... that was more than it seemed like at the time. :-)

(Obviously, icons made as gifts are not for snagging unless the recipient is okay with that.)

I found this writing meme I did once before and thought it was a funny sort of day, and just the time to try again. And I did it! \o/

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order. (ETA: Whoops.)

1. Blake's 7
2. Sapphire & Steel
3. Doctor Who
4. Press Gang
5. Angel

2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

Demi-drabbles under the cut )

I had a sandwich, a banana and a bit of chocolate afterwards, though, not a cookie. And I was being very careful not to let my mind explode. It does that too often anyway, these days.
lost_spook: (b7 - Orac!)
Before I forget again...

Orac/Nyssa drabble for [livejournal.com profile] b7love_250.

24 icons from The West Wing & Press Gang (9 text, 15 images) for the current [livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks challenge 'breakfast'.

And, other than that, I don't know. Tired, but okay? Hmm, talking of one of my comms reminds me. I most post the discussion post on [livejournal.com profile] dw_straybunnies that I've had ready for a month or so. *notes to do later* (Lunch etc first.)
lost_spook: (B7 - Servalan)
[livejournal.com profile] justice_turtle gave me "And if that mockingbird won't sing, Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring", from The Weavers' version of the traditional song.

And the one thing it seemed to suggest to me was this drabble portrait of Servalan. (It's funny, but any 'any fandom' prompt always seems to mean B7 for me.)
Mockingbird )

If anyone wants a prompt from me, the post is here. (And if you want a prompt but you'd rather not offer your own music up, well, it's not as if I'm going to tell the LJ meme police. And I am very bored and would love to give a prompt to anyone who doesn't object. Also it means possible tiny fic by my flist!)
lost_spook: (b7 - Avon)
This took a while, but memed from [livejournal.com profile] jjpor:

1. Go to this link:

2. Randomly generate one cheesy made-up thriller title

3. Write a drabble for your fandom of choice that in some way relates to the title generated. Be warned, some of them are a bit...non-obvious

4. If you're not fed up yet, repeat until you are!

I decided the fandom would be Blake's 7 and then (after it gave me The Phantom Menace), I got The Reality Ploy (which I like so much I want to use on something else someday, too.)

The Reality ploy )
lost_spook: (B7 - Servalan)
You can tell I'm procrastinating on my Yuletide fic by my amazing productivity on random ficlets over the last few days. Just wrote this, instead of what I was supposed to be doing. (And remember I'm still a B7 newbie - I'm sure this has been done in fic before, because it must have been, but I haven't read it.)

Post Gauda Prime, so SPOILERS. Or AU. Or whatever. (c.f. Things B7 Has In Common With Press Gang)
(PG, Drabble, Kerr Avon, Servalan. The final meeting.)

Firstly, I am wearing contact lenses. This is really peculiar, but very exciting. (Although I did think for a bit that the very kind and patient woman at Boots wasn't going to let me have them... because of my initial inability to take them out. I must say I wondered what it would be like putting them in, but hadn't thought about how weird it would be sort of pinching at seemingly non-existent things in your eyes. However, I managed it.)

Secondly, and what I was meaning to say - I've been doing some actual writing!: I finally finished my DW/Angel crossover last night (now up on Teaspoon HERE). I must thank [livejournal.com profile] dbskyler who has probably forgotten that she answered my what-should-Peri-sing-at-karaoke question last spring or something - and gave me not only a sensible answer to that but also a fun last line. So: thanks!

Plus, have a random drabble! I've been going back through some of the old [livejournal.com profile] dw100 challenges recently and was trying to do one per Doctor for the 004/020 challenge 'crossover'. I did this one and then realised that not only was it obscure (as ever), but it didn't have a Doctor in it, so it didn't count (for my own personal satisfaction, I should add - [livejournal.com profile] dw100 are wonderfully non-prescriptive!). So: Tegan Jovanka has a new employee at the famliy cattle feed business who isn't the least bit scared of her bossiness... (I don't know why I keep using The Gathering continuity when sometimes I don't want the audio to exist, but then Tegan's arguments about why she ended up in the business are fun)(DW/Press Gang):

Just Like Home )

I've got my third fake TV Show nearly done, but I'll hold fire on it for a bit, because it's also Regency-set, so I don't want to follow Cloak and Dagger with it too swiftly.

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.
lost_spook: (brigadier)
For [livejournal.com profile] pedanther who asked for Captain Yates, Captain Magambo & robots. That's a lot to get into a drabble, so the robot appears only fleetingly, but here goes:

Intrusion )
lost_spook: (BrigLiz)
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: (Leela)
Another one, this time Wilf and Leela, for [livejournal.com profile] john_elliott:

Old Soldiers )

Just the one for tonight:

For [livejournal.com profile] belantana who (foolishly!) wanted (my OC) Tilly, getting to grips with some new-fangled invention. (It had to be AU Tilly, really.)

First Battle )
lost_spook: (Ruth!)
The first few (not necessarily in order, though - sorry!):

For [livejournal.com profile] pitry: Screwdriver )

For [livejournal.com profile] primsong: Job Satisfaction )

For [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42: Outmanoeuvred )

For [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1: Burned )

I promise the rest won't be too long in following (and I've still got 2 spare gaps - and I'm not going to tell on anyone who doesn't run the meme in return, really...)
lost_spook: (Default)
Snaffled from [livejournal.com profile] primsong, since how could I ever pass up the opportunity of a drabble from her?

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character with a prompt. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (As Prim said, I'm sure art or icons, or something will be acceptable. Should your name be [livejournal.com profile] jjpor, a promise to write 1000 words of original fic will suffice! ;-D. In fact, who's telling, anyway? I'm not!)

1. [livejournal.com profile] john_elliott: Leela & Wilf. Old Soldiers
2. [livejournal.com profile] pitry: Tegan & Romana. Screwdriver
3. [livejournal.com profile] primsong: Benton. Job Satisfaction
4. [livejournal.com profile] akashasheiress: Liz/Brig One Small Hitch
5. [livejournal.com profile] belantana: Tilly Holmes, some 1980s contraption. First Battle
6. [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42: Harry and Sarah (Sullivan or Pearce!). Outmanoeuvred
7. [livejournal.com profile] jjpor: Bambera/Ancelyn.
8. [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1: Hex/Martha, candles. Burned
9. [livejournal.com profile] pedanther: Captain Yates, Captain Magambo, robots Intrusion

I mainly write Doctor Who, but I listed other things I will happily try here for a previous meme. Anything I have mentioned liking is also fair game, especially for a drabble. It's nice to have something different!

In honour of the day. (And, yes, this has been posted on [livejournal.com profile] dw100 and also on Teaspoon, so nobody has to comment, but it seemed appropriate).

Drabble, gen, First Doctor, Susan.

First Flight )
lost_spook: (Leela)
Since I took advantage of this meme to make requests of [personal profile] clocketpatchand [personal profile] persiflage_1, I must reciprocate!!

The first ten people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, requesters should post this in their journal, offering in return fanworks of the kind they enjoy doing. Fic? Icons? Meta?

Probably not a good idea in many ways but I like a challenge. (Although if [livejournal.com profile] primsong is thinking of anything along the lines of the suggestion she gave last time I did a meme, I may run away).

Edit: I should add, I'm happy to do anything, not just DW provided I know it in some way, having read/watched/written it.  (As I said, challenge is fun.)

Oh, and here's the 'moral' for Image of the Fendahl from DWM's Everything I Needed To Know About Life I learned From... The Fourth Doctor (by Gareth Roberts). From 2000 - I feel ancient!!

And the moral of the story is... )

A quick drabble. This is entirely in aid of ensuring that this scenario is a cliche. Um, don't ask.

Quiet, Victoria! )

 Polly drabbles & short fic:

Polly is continuity cop at the Round and has the job of deciding who's allowed in and who's not.  Lately, things have been getting to her.  In this first of these two, the First Doctor covers for her in a drabble (it's a VERY quiet night...) and in the second, she's forced to flee when someone decides a Doubles Night would be fun.  (Naturally, it's a double-drabble)



The Sixth Doctor decides to educate the inhabitants of Nameless with evening classes.  Peri does the poster.  (double drabble)


There seems to be an invasion of fast food outlets into Nameless.  Some of the inhabitants really aren't keen:


But on the other hand, the teenagers from H G Wells High School are:


(And John Elliott followed up with Zoe's difficulty:


The others are either too linked into ongoing arcs or stories or not things I want to shout about.

A series of three drabbles written for the Crossed Swords challenge on adwc.  

They're Diana Wynne Jones / Doctor Who crossovers.  Don't know if people have read The Tough Guide to Fantasyland (or The Dark Lord of Derkholm)  but if not you must go out and find it!  Right now!

Okay, got that done?  ;-)

So three Doctors and companions attempt to buy a sword for the Fantasyland Tour...

So, after going on about Librarians and This Time Round, thought I would put up my drabbles and other short stories.  Not the really bad ones that are stuck on the TTR archive and I can't alter, but the rest anyway.
