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\

Time for the answers! \o/ (Between this and more family history, I must await more spoons before catching up & commenting again, but I will. In the meantime, wacky crossover nonsense awaits...)

Some random icons and mini-sets I've made recently or found lurking on my hard drive. Margaret Lockwood, quotes, some random old TV peoples, and Once Upon A Time.

Well, it did go live, and even though I think it may have been quieter than some years, I got rather a lot of nice things in my stocking!

[personal profile] liadtbunny wrote me Public Eye fic, If I had a Million Pounds and posted a small picspam of James Maxwell from a thing called The Prison. (It looks like a great source for if I wanted Copper-related pics of him.) I also had a picspam from [personal profile] dunderklumpen, who went to all the trouble of finding pics of my random favourite old TV actors for me here.

Clocket made me a brilliant bit of art of Frank Marker; [personal profile] finisterre made me some old TV icons & [personal profile] rosied found me a link to a huge list of genealogy blogs, so I should be able to find something interesting in there.

Also there was more fic! It's been a bumper holiday season for Sapphire & Steel, that's for certain.

I had The Bright Side of Time (Silver, Sapphire, the TARDIS, Clara & Twelve) by [personal profile] kaffyr, Something Hungry Under the Stone (Silver) by [personal profile] annariel, and Just Passing Through (Silver/Liz) by [personal profile] john_amend_all.

Thank you, everyone! ♥

I did manage to write three little ficlets, as follows under the cut, but I'm sorry I couldn't do more!

Ficlets in New Tricks, OUaT & Historical RPF )

Title: Tinder-Box
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG/Teen
Word Count: 1322
Characters/Pairings: Regina, Rumplestiltskin (slight Rumple/Regina)
Notes/Warnings: Set early on (not long after the Fairy Tale side events of S2’s “Queen of Hearts”.)
Summary: Some people won’t be told about playing with fire…

For [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2 & [profile] ramasi in the 500 Prompts Meme – 4: Dancing with the Devil – Rumplestiltskin (OUaT) & 206: Dangerous Illusion – Regina/Rumple (OUaT). It’s probably cheating to combine two prompts, but they went together so naturally.

As is patently obvious, some stuff I nicked from Hans Andersen and twisted about (because OUaT).

Tinder-Box )

I haven't posted this to AO3 yet, so if anyone who's from the US and knows OUaT (or knows they don't care about it) has the time to glance over it and tell me if there are any glaring Britishisms, that would be wonderful, thank you. ♥ (Oh, and if it conflicts with S3, don't tell me! Unless you can do so without giving anything away, of course. Spoilers!) (thanks, eve11!)

Title: This Single World Is Double Till I Die
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages/PG
Word Count: 4070
Characters/Pairings: Regina Mills, Emma Swan, Rumplestiltskin (Regina/Emma)
Notes/Warnings: AU from the S2 finale (although mainly to allow the scenario to happen. Not having seen S3, I can’t really explore AUs when I don’t know what canon is yet). Originally written for [community profile] hc_bingo square “forced soulbonding”. Crack but not crack. Probably trope subversion yet again. Author is an entire season behind, sorry. Not really spoilery. Or even very shippy really. (I think I'm seriously failing to get the point of fanfic tropes...)

Summary: You can’t force a happy ending, not even when you live by the logic of fairy tales.

This Single World )

(Sorry about spamming everyone with fic and fests; it's just one of those bad timing things again. This is, in fact, the only thing I've written for a little while. And I actually originally wrote this last year.)
