In the event of me seemingly getting worse at writing birthday ficlets, instead of better, I have for the past couple of years, taken the Unconventionalcourtship Generator and had a flash-fic writing session with it, tackling any prompts where I felt able to write both characters for [personal profile] john_amend_all's birthday. The end of June was particularly bad, so here it is, only slightly delayed.

One of the results that came up was clearly something I thought would amuse [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2, who also had a birthday around the same time, so, I'm calling that a belated present also. Plus some bonus summaries I failed at writing. (The whole package is like a bundle of those tacky plasticky things you get at the seaside, but I had fun.) I did this on different days, before and during my family's visit, so it all got a bit out of hand. But still mostly not even shippy. /o\

I didn't have as much chance to read the Collection while away this year, but it is just as full of lovely things as ever, and you can find it all here. Dive in!

However, I did manage to read some short things, so here they are, just nipping in before reveals - my two wonderful gifts, plus a rather random selection of my first pick at the chocolate box, as it were, chosen in exactly that sort of manner! I hope to have a more leisurely go-through in the coming week or two, though.

16 recs in Archer's Goon, Blandings, Discworld, Dracula (TV 1968), Dungeons & Dragons (Cartoon), Fire & Hemlock, Flood (2007), Georgette Heyer, Malory Towers, New Tricks, Red Dwarf, While You Were Sleeping & Yes Minister )

A Robots/Artificial Intelligences Hurt/Comfort recs list for [community profile] hc_bingo square "Robots/androids". I widened the definition out to include all AI (but there are at least 10 recs that feature more unambiguous androids/robots, just to make sure I'm definitely covered on the challenge requirements).

For [livejournal.com profile] cersia5 who asked for Snape and for Avon + snark. (Sorry, I didn't manage any Lefroy/Jane.) I also did Rimmer, just because there is apparently some logic in my brain that moves from Snape and Avon to Arnold Rimmer.

Snarkage of sorts )

I've spent the best part of the day reposting things, and collecting links and so on. So I decided to share, even if nobody else may be grateful... In this post, you will find Brittas Empire fic recs, a clip, and a bit of fic I would never write. Except I just did.

Day 20 - Favorite kiss

I realised that I had no idea how to answer this one. I tried to think about TV couples where you had to wait forever for a kiss, and then... (but, frankly, I refuse to put down Harry and Ruth's one kiss, because the pair of them were turning purple from the cold). So, I, um, went for what is probably the most memorable and very likely one of the funniest kisses ever instead, because, why be sensible?

Now, I bet no-one was expecting that... (The clip is from the DVD extras, so lots of comments from all involved. And - just to warn the squeamish - there is an extended sequence...). But, seriously, after all those years of locked up bickering, what do you expect? Plus, it's Lister's fantasy, which is highly amusing. I mean, we'd hardly have been surprised at anything from Rimmer. And of course, behind the scenes, the writers had kept threatening the two actors in question that if they kept counting which of them got the most on-screen kisses, they would make them kiss each other... And so they did.

If I ever, while watching something, come across the sensible answer to this question, I shall tell you. :-)

Full list of days )
lost_spook: (Eleven and One)
I'm still behind, so I'll probably post Day 15 later. They sit together happily, but I want two posts of joyous celebration, not one. Or something.

Day 14 - Favorite male character

Being a Doctor Who fan makes this answer pretty boring, doesn't it? Who can compete with the Doctor in all his incarnations?

Still catching up:

Day 08 - A show everyone should watch:

Given how different everyone is, can there be such a thing? However, a show I think everyone should at least try Episode 1 of is Life on Mars. I'd call it the show of the decade without question save that it probably needed Spooks and Doctor Who paving the way for it, but still... for the UK, anyway.

It's different, strange as any TV show has ever been, scary, killingly funny and the cast are great, especially Philip Glenister. (The US remake has already proved the impossibility of recasting Gene Hunt.) (And it has this Camberwick Green moment, which is possibly one of my favourite things I've ever seen on TV ever.) I perfectly understand people finding it too peculiar, too British, too regional, but worth a shot. Yes.

Day 09 - Best scene ever:

What, just the one? I could do top twenty DW scenes and still kick myself for missing things, but off the top of my head, here are some, from different shows (& I couldn't find YouTube clips of any of them, and darn it, there used to be for The gateau from the Chateau!)

Title How To Save A Life (Ish)
Author [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating All ages / PG
Characters Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Arnold J Rimmer / Ace Rimmer
Warnings Spoilers for Red Dwarf S7.

Summary Further proof if needed that Martha Jones can sort out the problems of the universe single-handed. Well, almost. Red Dwarf crossover.

Well, I returned home yesterday & didn't expect to be writing random fic with my day off, but there I was, playing with the crossover site again and re-reading JJPOR's Red Dwarf cross for the meme and remembering that I still needed to plague him (!) for sequels in which the Doctor keeps encountering Ace Rimmer at awkward moments (preferably at least one involving Ten and Donna) and then I had one of my own, but it turned out quite differently with a Rimmer who's sort of neither/nor. And stuff I should probably feel very very bad about... I don't think I do, though.

As usual, allow time for okaying onto Teaspoon.

Now I'll go and write something relatively sensible. I did leave Six, Evelyn and co fighting the Master, didn't I?

(And, yes, very nice trip, lovely wedding!)
lost_spook: (ontheup)
In lieu of anything more constructive, have this:

(Ages ago, in the crossover meme, [livejournal.com profile] jjpor asked me for a Rimmer/Brittas meeting. I obliged, but before I remembered it was supposed to be a random conversation between the two characters, I nearly embarked on what would presumably have turned into a full epsiode. So, the beginning I abandoned (and the original last line), since it still amuses me now that I re-read it.

Brittas Empire few words of daftness )

Now, what was I supposed to be doing?
lost_spook: (ontheup)
At last, the final effort from the crossover meme:

For [livejournal.com profile] dbskyler, Davros meets Dave Lister. It has no backstory, but it has Nyder, so I still don't qualify for all the meme conditions, but hey. (PG-ish, as it's got Red Dwarf in it).

Anyone for a curry? )
lost_spook: (ontheup)
For [livejournal.com profile] jjpor, who asked for Rimmer meeting Brittas in the meme. Unfortunately, I could not get out of my head the other conversations that must have taken place around that time, so Kryten also meets Colin, Laura has a chat with Lister and Cat has an encounter with Carole and Linda.

Rimmer, Brittas, Kryten, Colin, Laura, Lister, Cat, Carole and Linda. (And Julie). )
