... and of course, this is why I can never resist [community profile] fandom_stocking after all, because, lo, I have a stocking and it is full of shiny things!

AAL!, Doctor Who, S&S, Georgette Heyer, Dracula (TV 1968) fic under the cut )

And in my stocking, in addition to some kind greetings, friendly good wishes, and IOUs, I have:

* a great little Ruth/Harry ficlet (Spooks) by [personal profile] cordeliadelayne

* one of Liadt's amazingly funny and adorable pics (which is still making me giggle far too much whenever I look at it.)

* Superior Sense, a Georgette Heyer crossover with Sophy and Drusilla, which is lovely, by [personal profile] rain_sleet_snow

* actual fab Press Gang Spike/Lynda + alien invasion fic from [personal profile] swordznsorcery, amazing!! (Watch out for the alarming gif, too. ;-D)

* and, lastly, a couple of very nice S&S icons by [personal profile] tarlanx.

(And I did make things; they were just very nearly all graphics and odd bits and pieces, but me saying that I wasn't doing things for it was actually untrue. I just wasn't writing, but words aren't the only form of creativity!)

I decided my writing gears needed a bit of a kick start and hunted out the tried and tested poetry meme. The quotes were especially random this time, but it still worked:

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

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.

I've had a few answers for this meme done or semi-done for a while, so it's about time I posted one, and here goes - From [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan: Favourite TV shows almost nobody knows about and should watch? (Seriously... I need more stuff)

Shows that nobody else knows about seems to sum up my entire fannish life of late (and always, really), but since [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan specified "and should watch", that's a whole other thing. I have plenty of strange things I love - I don't necessarily think anyone else should have to watch them!

I avoided anything with its own (reasonably active) fandom, like Blake's 7, Sapphire & Steel and The Avengers (obviously, people have heard of them, if they're being fannish about them), and anything I thought was too inaccessible to count as something people should watch. What counts as something 'nobody's heard of' is so relative anyway. (Some of these things really don't count if you're British but do count if you live anywhere else. What can I do?). Of course, much of it assumes some willingness to watch studio-bound, video-taped old British TV of some kind, which I know not everyone is up for. If you are, or you're willing to try, these aren't bad places to start.

Anyway, here's a list! Not in any particular order, really. (I numbered them so I would know to stop if I went over ten, because that would be silly.)


Under here for the list!! )
lost_spook: (ww - josh/donna hug)
30 icons made for the [community profile] hc_bingo square "hugs". I went back through all my screen caps looking for any iconable & expressive hugs and this was the result. Given the odd things I screen cap, it's a little motley, but on the other hand it covers a whole range of hugs from 1959-2013, which is quite nice in itself, after all. (Even if I may have used a pic to icon before, these are all new for the challenge.)

So, I wrote things for Yuletide. Somewhat more than I expected...

Firstly, and most importantly, my assignment, which was for [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42. I had, when signing up initially, looked at my list of fandoms I was willing to write and said to myself I might as well have just said I'd write for Paranoidangel. And then laughed, shook my head at myself, reminded myself that Yuletide is a big exchange and added in a bunch of other fandoms... and then got assigned to Paranoidangel! (So, erm, sorry about that - you just got yet more of me instead of somebody new! I had fun writing for you, though! ♥)

Backstitch in Gold (3948 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The House of Eliott
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Beatrice Eliott & Evangeline Eliott, Beatrice Eliott/Jack Maddox
Characters: Beatrice Eliott, Evangeline Eliott, Jack Maddox
Additional Tags: Yuletide, 1920s, Fashion & Couture, Sister-Sister Relationship, Misses Clause Challenge, Women Being Awesome
Summary:

What has been well-stitched together doesn’t easily fray at the seams.



I'd been rewatching HoE recently and was determined to write fic for it, because there's so little of it, and knew what I wanted to do - a sort of big Bea and Evie across-the-years, culminating in a fixit for the ending. But then it seemed to fall flat in various places, and the ending wasn't quite how I remembered it, thus scuppering my planned final section and I floundered for a while. (I had in my head that Bea and Evie had a big row and, actually, they don't. Evie is angry at everyone, but Bea is muted, almost defeated.) However, eventually, I beat it into shape & hopefully it wasn't too bad! (I've learned by now, though, that I pretty much always feel my assignments are terrible - until the next year, when suddenly I realise that last year's was quite good... but this year's is terrible.)

Anyway, it was fun to write Bea & Evie, and I am still very fond of the series. (Which follows the fortunes of a pair of sisters who set up a London fashion house in the 1920s and is good fun & all up on YT if anyone is interested). I did want to work in more characters, though, and more social history... and, yes, well, possibly being unrealistic? I think in my head I wanted to write a big HofE novel, that's all. At least I finally came up with a title I liked. I had the summary before the fic, but it was in danger of being posted as "Untitled House of Eliott fic" as the deadline approached. (Backstitch is the strongest stitch commonly used for sewing & in gold, obviously, but also because that's how Jack refers to Bea early on. Hmm, I'm not sure now why I changed it from "Backstitch in Gold Thread" because that makes more sense! I shall go change it back.)

And more under the cut! )


Also I now know that it was Clocketpatch who risked complete obscurity by writing me that last minute Public Eye/Sapphire & Steel treat. (Thanks so much, Clocket! You're amazing!) My other wonderful gift was by DesertScribe, who's new to me, but whom I hope hasn't written their last S&S fic, because that one was excellent. ♥

I just found this on my hard-drive - I did it a few weeks ago as a writing exercise and forgot about it. (And I'm definitely stretching the definition of a sentence to breaking point in some cases. Heh.) I can't remember where I found the meme - somewhere about.

One sentence Press Gang fics )

(It's hard. I think I prefer word limits!)
lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
I felt in need of a writing meme tonight &, as ever, resurrected this one, which often seems to work for me:

1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

1. Doctor Who
2. Dungeons & Dragons
3. Press Gang
4. Public Eye
5. Spooks

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.


And the resulting demi-drabbles... )
lost_spook: (s&s - silver)
(Nearly done with the [community profile] snowflake_challenge!)

Day 10:
In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.


Even though I've waited for well over a month, this time of the year is the worst for doing this. I just took part in Yuletide! And [community profile] fandom_stocking!! I had so many marvellous gifts, even in some of my completely obscure things and it was wonderful (♥) But, well, the meme dictates, and happy-making fannish things are nice, and I'm tired again, so here we are...

But really, my fandom stocking entry is pretty much my wishlist. Especially all the impossibly obscure bits at the end. Which I know nobody knows and all that, but still. And that's more than three things. Whoops.

My heart yearns for impossible things. (Isn't that just the truth? ;-D)

How about everyone else? What impossible fannish things do you want to see? Let's all be unreasonable together...


ETA: That was cheating, really wasn't it? I'll put some effort into it:

1. I could really use some Lynda Day in my life right now. Well, when don't you?

2. Some sort of mild Mary/Louisa or Mary & Louisa from Duchess of Duke Street. (I cannot write it, but I would love to read it.)

3. Someone to talk to about Public Eye S4 and "The Man Who Said Sorry". (Though said person is not allowed to dislike Mrs Mortimer. That would be sad. Maybe best not, then.)

4. I feel like Heroes of the Revolution is a real thing now. There should be fanfic for it/a fanmix/something... (Anyone feel like researching energy crises or something? ;-D I know, I know, that's the bit I'm supposed to go off and do. *sheepish*)

Oh, that was more than three. *cough* At least one of them was sort of possibly even achievable! *is proud of self*


There. I still want to know everybody else's impossible wishes, though...
lost_spook: (Northanger reading)
Still tired, but I have another post-I-made-earlier. (I really should stop making posts and hiding them, but never mind.) Also, I am posting my [community profile] fandom_stocking fics about places finally. If I post any to AO3, then anyone suddenly getting a "gift", it'll probably just be that. Sorry.


In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.

I saw other people saying that they had no such show/book etc. Perhaps I'm too impressionable, then, but I have several. (Although, maybe it's partly my tendency to rewatch things, and most of them were from when I was a teenager - which is probably true for most of us - and I was ill and stuck home a lot. And to a certain extent, some from when I've been ill again. I suppose if you've got hours and hours to lie there and think about odd bits of the few books and TV episodes you can manage to read or watch, (and re-watch) and so on, it's bound to creep into your thinking in ways things don't when you're running about in your normal life.)

Anyway, some I can't (or won't) explain here, but the main one is Fire and Hemlock by Diana Wynne Jones, which is a very good book, but also very complicated, dark and twisted up, in a way that I didn't really get as a teenager but I do now. However, I read it and read it and I still so often do my thinking through it, and snatches of it still run through my head. It's hard to explain what I mean exactly, but part of it is the idea of how heroism might work in the real world (Now Here) as opposed to the dramatic way it does in stories, fairy tales and so on (Nowhere) - "Being a hero means learning to ignore how embarrassed you feel." And giving a means of expressing the way real life and imagination intersect. (The "Now Here/Nowhere" thing, just one letter, one turn away, the same and opposites). It made me think, and still does. And to try to look properly at things, instead of see what you expect to see.

And other things, in lesser ways, mostly, but yes. I was explaining something in Public Eye to myself the other day by means of Fire & Hemlock.

But Diana Wynne Jones, S25 and S26 of Doctor Who (especially The Happiness Patrol - yes, really!), Press Gang, CS Lewis's NF - these are the things that got into my head and shaped me and challenged me and gave me new ways of thinking. I didn't get out much as a teenager; I was ill for four years, so I needed something and those really weren't bad things all told. The weirdness of my brain, let me show it to you. But I like it this way.

And, yes, again now, things for helping my find my way through being ill, for being sort of channels of thought when I was in an incoherent fog, or for distracting me - Joan Aiken's Midnight Is A Place (by Joan Aiken), Enemy at the Door and Public Eye (all things that in some way involved working through bad times, setting a pattern for me to follow) and Sapphire and Steel, which certainly distracted me beautifully for about a whole two years.

After all, if there weren't some stories, in whatever format they may come in, that impacted us and touched our core, or soul, or whatever you prefer to call it, there wouldn't be all that much point in them, in the end. We use them to make sense of the world, supposedly. And so I just happen to make sense of the world through Fire & Hemlock, which I suppose is a little weird, but then again, I think the world's more than a little weird, too, so I have no regrets.

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Well, I've been going back through my blue notebook lately and aiming to type up anything I find that's short and complete and reasonable - and guess what? I found two extra Kenny ficlets from the 50ficlets challenge I'd been doing. And since I don't intend to reclaim that prompt, here they are for Day 9. (I don't think they'll appeal to any non-PG folks; they're not especially spoilery, but they need some knowledge of the two eps, or of S5 and There Are Crocodiles to make full sense. Or so I think anyway.)

44 x Sapphire & Steel icons and 53 x Press Gang icons. The S&S icons seem to have been growing slowly on my PC since this time last year, so are a bit of an odd mix.

3. Press Gang – Lynda Day/Spike Thomson: getting an oil change for the car. From [livejournal.com profile] lolmac (All ages, 540 words) Who specified there was to be no vehicle substitution. I managed this, even though I’m pretty sure neither of the characters would have a valid UK driving license, let alone a car.

Lynda, you can't drive )

14. Spooks – Ruth/Harry: hoovering the curtains. From [livejournal.com profile] daibhid_c

I tried writing this, and I worked out that they were hoovering the curtains (probably in a safe house) as an excuse to keep an eye on what was happening outside, and that it was Ruth’s idea. But I couldn’t come up with anything non-dull beyond that. The best I managed was a conversation about hoovering the curtains vs washing them, and that point I decided it was better for everyone's sakes if I didn't attempt actually writing it. (Sorry. I think maybe I need to rewatch some Spooks, when I can. Ruth and Harry are kind of elusive.)



19. Doctor Who – Ben Jackson/Polly Wright: changing nappies. (599 words) From [livejournal.com profile] belantana (Who said that the baby didn’t have to be theirs, in fact, the unlikelier, the better. So, it was pretty unlikely. It's not terribly good, though, really, this one, but meme!fic. And I have prompts now. Prompts are cool.)

Well, no sooner was [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo over, than [livejournal.com profile] shipswap went live, just to save me getting withdrawal symptoms from interesting 'net activity.

And I have a story! \o/ It's a really lovely and fun Press Gang fic, set S2, with a full complement of Spike/Lynda arguing, Sam/Kenny flirting, Sarah's disastrous love-life, Tiddler - and Colin being more than usually random. What more could a person ask for? (And, yes, I was able to read it. :-D)

Summary: The Norbridge High Valentine's Ball has got everyone at the Junior Gazette thinking of other things than the paper.

It's an anonymous exchange, but I do suspect that this was written for me by [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 - but I'll find that out come reveal. (Possibly I am amusingly wrong, who knows?) ETA: Looks as though I'm amusingly wrong, I see... Ha.

Also, obviously, anonymity means I can't post my fic here yet. I'm a little curious as to whether people will guess which one it is, so I think I'll do the guessing game for the first and possibly the only time and offer up a tiny ficlet or one or two icons to anyone who guesses correctly.)

(Mind, it is a tiny exchange. If everyone guesses, I might take that back.)

Anyway, check out the rest of the collection - it's tiny, but there are some great fics, including two Classic Who stories.

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.

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.

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

I was going to think of something less obvious next, but, after all, this is one of the topics I got from [livejournal.com profile] dbskyler...

Okay - it's like this. There's a tribe living by a river, and in the river there are crocodiles. The tribe has one particular piece of wisdom passed down through the generations. It goes like this: if you happen to meet a crocodile, don't stick your head in its mouth. Every now and then - and who knows the reason - people ignore this advice. Which is sad. Because they die. But very stupid because they were warned. They had a choice. The moral of this story is - you can't afford to be stupid. There are crocodiles.


I made these icons and the rough post on 18th May. I've been waiting ever since to be work out something sensible to say about Press Gang. I don't think it's going to happen. So. I love Press Gang. It's clever, funny, surreal, tragic, hard-hitting and heart-warming and bleak. Sometimes all in the same minute. Lynda Day is great (and Julia Sawalha is amazing). It's one of the most quotable things ever. And then there's the strange and wonderful world of Colin Mathews... Oh, and it's just some old 1990s UK teen drama.

Tell Sarah the lead article is completely lousy, and if she doesn't have it up to scratch by seven tonight, I'll burn her house down. )

[livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks had their second amnesty, and I was really pleased to see that they brought all the previous prompts back into play - v good for a slow(ish) person like me. (Also they have these cute achievement badge thingies now.) So I made things. It's probably as easy to link to the original entries as repost them:

12 Press Gang icons from the S3 ep 'The Last Word', for the Communication challenge.

Not Here (Ficlet, 500 words.) For the 'Anywhere But Here' challenge.

From 'Level 7' (an 1966 episode of the BBC's anthology series Out of the Unknown), much angst, but written to be read without knowledge of the episode. (Because it's unlikely anyone else will have seen it. Unless they're also looking for David Collings things on YT*. It just fitted the prompt so well. Anyway, I want a medal, because I thought it was impossible for my fanfic to get any more obscure, but look! I managed it! (They have a rare fandoms badge and a new fandoms one. I am so going to get those. Virtually all my fandoms are rare or non-existent. *smug*)

Second Take (Primeval ficlet, 635 words. Nick, Claudia, Jenny.) For the Do Over challenge. (This one was a bit last-minute, and a new fandom for me, but the show fitted the challenge, really.)

[livejournal.com profile] fan_flashworks is quite fun, because it's open to all fandoms, and all sorts of creative works, and so people have cooked things, drawn things, made a telegram from Wooster to Jeeves and so on. It's quite fascinating to see what other people come up with.

*A thing which I wound up doing to find links for someone else, and amused myself with reading random comments about David Collings from people who don't have a clue who he is. I'm not sure what my favourite was. So many people are still traumatised by Charn from Through the Dragon's Eye, and I'm tickled by the person who thinks he sings like Michael Crawford in Scrooge (!), but I think I'll go for the person who commented on Elizabeth R with: "Babington's a babe. A really stupid babe, but mmf hmm..." :lol: Babington is incredibly stupid.

ETA: Just seen on my flist that Kathryn Joosten's died. I only know her as Mrs Landingham from The West Wing, but that's enough, because... Mrs Landingham.
