Summary: The Doctor always returns to Bannerman Road at the important moments. It's the timing that's so hard to get right...

It's a remix of [personal profile] paranoidangel's Tea and Biscuits, because we just can't avoid each other in these things! Anyway, it was fun and I had plenty of options to choose from, but my heart wanted this one. I'd actually beta-ed Tea and Biscuits (and it was a gift fic for [personal profile] dbskyler, too), which is a little odd, but so far in my remixing, I've always gone for stories I've loved and that's what drew me to T&B quite quickly. I'm not sure what the key is (I'm sure you could remix almost anything with a bit of work and inspiration), but certainly a story that speaks to me, one I can say something in response to is maybe what that sudden, "That's the one!" spark is. Anyway, this was fun. I was little worried about effectively switching Eleven for Twelve, because it borders on going too far - but on the other hand, the Doctor is the Doctor, and I know Paranoidangel doesn't have an aversion to any of them. (Well, as far as I know!)

And I see that I have [personal profile] estirose to thank for the remix of my Dungeons & Dragons fic! (Madness is still unrevealed, although I do have a suspicion...)

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).

Robots/Androids Rec Set )

I'd been hoping to get back and read some more Yuletide fic and make another recs post, and Day Three of [community profile] snowflake_challenge is to rec at least three fanworks, so I'm killing two birds with one stone here, with another selection of recs from this year's Yuletide, (though actually I gave up around the end of M. One day I will have ability to read enough online, but this year is not that point so I didn't read many long fics in the same fandoms, so omissions are frequently to do with that rather than lack of quality):

13 recs in Cadfael, Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Discworld, Eternal Law, The Importance of Being Earnest, Miss Marple, Pushing Daisies, Georgette Heyer, & The Sarah Jane Adventures )

Hastily, before reveals this afternoon! There are heaps of things I haven't even looked at, stuff I probably didn't bookmark, some of these I might not yet have commented on, but let's have a look before we all cease to be anonymous.

(And, of course, not forgetting my wonderful gifts, all recced here - Chalet School, Miss Marple & Ten Stupidest Things I've Heard Since Richard III's Remains Were Uncovered.)

21 recs in 17 Fandoms - Cold Comfort Farm, Dead Like Me, Emma, Georgette Heyer, Ghost Soup, The Good Life, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Love, Actually, The Mummy, North and South, Northanger Abbey, Red Dwarf, Sarah Jane Adventures, Ten Stupidest Things, and While You Were Sleeping )

I've barely scratched the surface and have been mostly working through alphabetically. Until my parents' internet cut out, and after I'd finally read my own gifts to my own satisfaction, I did have a bit where I could even read quite long things (ish), which was fun. And while some of these have been recced a lot, others really haven't that I've seen, so here goes:

19 recs in 15th C RPF, Blake's 7, Brittas Empire, Enchanted Glass, Fire & Hemlock, Ghost Soup Infidel Blue, Inspector Alleyn Mysteries, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Julius Caesar, Madeleine L'Engle/Doctor Who, Matilda, Measure for Measure, Monkey Island, New Tricks & Sarah Jane Adventures )

(My Mum's laptop is great for reading stuff on AO3, but not so good for me actually doing stuff, even plus rl things and tiredness, so don't be misled into thinking I am actually here. ;-p)

But really, I have to say something because Yuletide! I had five gifts in the main collection. Truly. Five!! (Well, four and a half, one is gifted both to me and another; I think I must own the half with the penguin). I haven't moved onto any other fics yet, although so many wonderful things there because I've been trying to read mine. (I have now, and \o/ although I really need to read the longer ones again.) But if any of my Dear Writers are reading this (and I have a strong feeling two of them may well be), then thank you! Not only are they all great in very different ways, but also for my sort of happy gloating as a new fic appeared each day. I've been spoiled rotten already, and I still have two Madness fics tomorrow. So thank you! You all made me so happy! ♥

Anyway, the fics, for they are marvellous and should be read!

Five recs - mine all mine btw - in Blake's 7 15th C RPF and Sarah Jane Adventures )

In other news, I somehow managed to post four fics in the main collection (!) and if anyone wants to guess, you're welcome. I could make you an icon of your choice if you're right, if you wish. (Although maybe not if EVERYONE gets it right - one is probably rather obvious!)

I'm reccing on [livejournal.com profile] calufrax again this week (they did not get many volunteers when they last asked so I went for it; I can't be worse than a non-existent reccer) and am oddly terrified and feel like a fraud. Luckily, my bookmarks are still all full of nice things as yet-unrecced. And, besides, [livejournal.com profile] eve11 made it to 50 recs recently - and informed me (when I congratulated her) that I was on 49. Much to my shock. So now I've made it to 50 as well! (Er. That wasn't the only reason I volunteered again, but it was a factor, maybe... :lol:)

Anyway, I meant to post this here yesterday and forgot - I'm sure it will amuse quite a few of you as much as it did me: [livejournal.com profile] touchdownpossum made an excellent/ funny K9/Mr Smith fanvid:


ETA: Oh, damn. I knew I'd completely forget to crosspost and just be erratic and inconsistent.

So there's not much going on, and I couldn't resist retrying the meme using last names. Some couples stayed together despite the odds: Evie Eliott & Eowyn, Frobisher & Gandalf, Maddy & Maid Marian, and Servalan & Seven. The results were mostly much scarier than last time, but it did throw up some things that were amusing - and one or two I want badly now:

More mayhem and scary pairings )

Meme found in the wild: Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing, etc. Treat us to some commentary once you're done.

I thought it'd be fun... I hadn't quite realised what a weird jumble of characters I have - some of them are there more for the action in the icon than the character. So, in most cases, let's say that instead of a commentary, a horrified silence might be more appropriate?

(Actually, it turned out better than I expected. For the first half of the alphabet, anyway.)

38 random pairings and an odd man out )

It occurred to me part-way through this that while I had excluded Doctor Who (so that it didn't take up all but one of the 30 days) - and DW for me always includes the main lines of audios and novels, as they were each intended as genuine continuations when they started - that there were two DW spin-offs, that would never get a look-in if I had the whole of the show to play with, so...

She is no witch... she is an angel... )

So Far )

Quick note

lost_spook: (carry on Shorthouse writing)
... to say I finally got around to posting the [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking stories I wrote (or most of them) into the community's AO3 collection. So, apologies those of you who may suddenly find a note to say you've got a gift, and then it's only that!

If people want to know the links are under the cut - that share feature is very, very handy! (Two of these I have already posted to Teaspoon, of course.)

DW, Press Gang, Blake's 7 etc )

If anyone prefers not to have their stocking filler archived there, let me know & I'll delete it.
