I've managed a few of the AU Meme ficlets so far (and a few still yet to come). I have been posting them to AO3 & of course in the comments, but in the absence of other things going on, I thought I might as well round them up here, too:

Liz Shaw )

Justin Alastair, Duke of Avon )

Nine & Rose )

Adam Adamant & Georgina Jones )

Harry Pearce/Ruth Evershed )

Leela )

Roderick Alleyn )

1. I had a bad few days for various reasons, and, as ever, I tend to slip up on LJ when that happens. I'm caught up again, but apologies if I missed things. Today feels a little better at least! (Nothing terrible happened, but I went very low & technology failed on me at some points - if anyone knows of a good alternative to the VLC-player that isn't either madly fiddly & thus slow or also affected by this aspect ratio bug re. screencaps, I would be happy to hear about it. The only reason I have VLC Player is for screencapping. I do have another program that does it, but it's fiddly & stupid in many ways so I only use it when I'm forced. Also my little TV/DVD player broke yesterday, which is almost in the terrible category. I feel ridiculous that one person should need two TVs, but getting rid of the proper one downstairs would be silly & unhelpful and I can't quite get by yet without my little one to hand for the lowest days when downstairs is too much to handle. :-/)

2. Naturally, in the middle of this (well, prior to the TV-demise), I applied my usual solution of watching old TV with favourite actors and reached the episode of Hadleigh that starred James Maxwell. Hadleigh is not a show that goes in for villains, but they made an exception for James Maxwell. However, it was a nice role and nobody attached anything to his face whatsoever, so overall that was a win. I'll do a picspam and waffle more about that sometime. (Obviously I braved my annoying program to cap that one. But. Argh.) (I was meant to be watching the previous episode, but it was by the same person who kept writing about people wanting to impregnate everybody in Survivors and I promised myself that if he wrote one word about pregnancy, I was skipping to James Maxwell. I thought that was a joke, but the episode was about someone thinking she was pregnant. Dear God, all these 70s writers with weird obsessions that people keep letting them write...! /o\ I skipped to James Maxwell and was very happy to do so. Even if he was villainous.)

3. Anyway, nice things! Remix Redux went live this morning last night* & I had the lovely surprise of discovering that someone had remixed my Spooks ficlet where Ruth and Harry live happily ever after running a bookshop in Devon. So now there is more Ruth/Harry/Bookshop/can't stop being spies ever fic in the world & I rec it heartily to anyone who knows Spooks:

All Russians are Spies (The Retirement Remix) (1278 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Spooks | MI-5
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Ruth Evershed/Harry Pearce
Characters: Ruth Evershed, Harry Pearce
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, bookshops

Ruth's happy, running a second hand bookshop in Devon. Harry, however, is bored.

(I've read/looked at a few other fics, too, and I think I might have guessed at least three authors in the process, but I have some reading to do later on when I might be properly awake. Remix Madness won't go live until probably actually tomorrow for me).

4. Working on an hc_bingo square still, though! Should be done soon! (I mean, that square, not the card, or even a row yet, obv.)

* It was this morning for me!

Title: Something in the Atmosphere
Author: [ profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 623
Characters/Pairings: Harry Pearce, Connie James
Notes/Warnings: Slight spoilers for S5/6.
Summary: Harry’s avoiding the subject…

For [ profile] paranoidangel42 in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 201. Gazing upon the sky with dampened eyes… - Harry Pearce (Spooks). (One day I may write Spooks fic that is not a stupidly slight ficlet, or a cracky crossover, but today is not that day.)

Title: Castle in the Clouds
Author: [ profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 757
Characters/Pairings: Ruth Evershed/Harry Pearce
Notes/Warnings: AU. (Very. People are happy.) No spoilers.
Summary: This once, Harry and Ruth get their happy ending.

For [ profile] persiflage_1 in the 500 Prompts Meme - #138 cabin by the sea & Ruth/Harry. (Where “cabin by the sea” = a second hand bookshop in Devon, courtesy of Peter Firth, even if he unaccountably said “tea-shop” instead of “bookshop”.) I also hope this makes up for the other time you asked me for Ruth/Harry and I wrote ruthlessly Ruth-less fic in response.

Castle in the Clouds )
lost_spook: (spooks - ruth bonkers but brilliant)
For [personal profile] persiflage_1, who gave me the prompt Spooks: Harry/Ruth - As flies to wanton boys are we to th' gods.
They kill us for their sport. (King Lear, Act IV, Scene 1)
I apologise for lack of actual Ruth, but this was immediately where my mind went.

Some more requests for Day 24!

[ profile] dweomeroflight asked for Danny/Zoe, or anything from S1-3 of Spooks. I hope these will answer (and now that my icons are getting respectable, I'll really have to make some more Spooks screencaps - these are from the beginning of 2.6, which along with the whole of 2.5 are my only caps, so I was a bit limited). Anyway, some Danny and Zoe and early Spooksiness, if nothing else:

lost_spook: (Kenny writing)
I've been so bad about writing (aside from long things, for some reason) lately that I was sadly going to pull out on my last two crossover fics, but then decided to aim for 300 words each and go for it, and stop being so stupid, and lo, there was fic. I'm sorry if they weren't worth the wait for the remaining patient two on my flist, but here goes:

Vila and Kenny Phillips )

Calling Dr Jones )

This may or may not be a UNIT fic smutty insert )

Thanks to everyone for their lovely prompts for the crossover birthday meme I held, and I wish it hadn't been such an odd summer, and I'd written them all sooner for everyone.

Day 21 - Favorite ship

I've tried being a bit unpredictable - now let's be 100% predictable here: Spooks - Ruth/Harry. So much flustering, subtext, confusion, amusement and genuine emotion at various points through the seasons. And the thing is, it was all Peter Firth's fault. Everyone laughed at him, and now it's an epic ship on the show and over the intrawebs with fic and postcards and comms and who knows what. A tribute to the achievement of one (or two?) actors getting carried away with their roles...

Have a Harry/Ruth fanvid and join the voyage...
lost_spook: (Avon no sense)
One of those things that definitely wasn't what I was supposed to be doing with my afternoon off. But [ profile] emerald_happy's suggestion of a Ros-Avon snark fest began to take shape in my head. Two disclaimers: 1. I apologise that there isn't anything like enough snark. 2. There really ought to be a very dark version of this somewhere. (I'll think about it).

Story: A Comedy of Errors
Author: [ profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 3,130
Characters/Pairings: Ros Myers, Kerr Avon, Ruth Evershed, Vila Restal, Zafar Younis, Harry Pearce, Malcolm Wynn-Jones, Dayna Mellanby, Del Tarrant, Adam Carter, Jo Portman.
Warnings: No real spoilers for either show. (Set just before 5.5 for Spooks, somewhere in S3 for B7.)

Summary: In which Section D apprehend a group of apparent terrorists in the act, only to find there’s something strange about them. This could all be smoothed over if Ros hadn’t entered a battle of wills with their leader. (A Very Silly Spooks/B7 crossover, with Avon and Ros snark, and everyone else having a nice day out in London. Ruth’s continuing acceptance of all things strange and alien, is still me running on from my fic Anarchist Sprites, but it always seems in character somehow.) Most of this, as I said, is entirely [ profile] emerald_happy's fault.

Torture and ice cream )
lost_spook: (dw - sarah jane)
Written after a discussion on the back of [ profile] boro_girl's entry in the [ profile] who_like_giants ficathon (See HERE) in which she suggested Clyde working for MI5.

Therefore this is hastily written nonsense, but hopefully will amuse.

Story: Work Experience
Author: [ profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1429
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, Ruth Evershed, Harry Pearce, Lucas North, Ros Myers, Tariq
Warnings: None, except for flippancy inappropriate to S8 Spooks.

Summary: Spooks/Sarah Jane Adventures. Clyde Langer manages to wangle work experience in Thames House, Section D.

Clyde on the Grid )
lost_spook: (Ruth!)
The first few (not necessarily in order, though - sorry!):

For [ profile] pitry: Screwdriver )

For [ profile] primsong: Job Satisfaction )

For [ profile] paranoidangel42: Outmanoeuvred )

For [ 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: (spooks - Harry/Ruth/Bench = ♥)
I printed the other fic off and the problem became instantly obvious and fixable. So: Harry, Ruth, late night on the Grid, towards the end of S4. (All ages, 533 words, no spoilers)

It's still not very good, but happy birthday again, nonetheless! (And I finally managed to write Harry/Ruth!)

After the end of the day )
lost_spook: (smallbrain)
For [ profile] persiflage_1 , although I've no idea if she wants them or not! (But I just realised I won't be spoiling you one little bit now.)

Favourite spooks fanvids under here )
lost_spook: (Harry)
For [ profile] paranoidangel42 who wanted Harry Sullivan meeting Harry Pearce. Now given that they're both supposed to end up in MI5, I chose to be awkward (because I don't much buy Harry Sullivan in MI5, and certainly not the Spooks version) and instead took inspiration from the even more unlikely sources of Harry's Diary and Wikipedia to come up with this (but it did mean aliens could attack Buckingham Palace and be fought off by UNIT and the Household Cavalry, so you can see the attraction...) Oh, wait, no backstory? You mean, I shouldn't have gone and listened to the Queen's Speech from 1957 and... :lol:

lost_spook: (Default)
I keep talking to people about Spooks and realised that (other than linking to Anarchist Sprites) I haven't posted about Spooks here and I've waffled enough about every other TV show I like this much.

Knowing that about 2 (maybe 3) of my friends list watch Spooks and the rest politely / kindly may have read my DW crossovers, or disclaim all knowledge, I worked out a way to do this without spoilers (you know, in case I cause people to run off and watch it, because Spooks spoilers matter).
