Another handful made for [community profile] iconthat challenges "orange" and "stock." (Sapphire and Steel, The Mummy and Department S, plus several stock images of books/reading.) 3x icons per challenge, plus 3 alternates for the stock challenge.




Plus 6x books & reading icons under here )

The first two results of the conversational crossover meme. (And years may have passed since the last time I did it, but I still fail on the 'no explanations' part, but I refuse to be sorry for that!)


For [personal profile] swordznsorcery: Evy Carnahan meeting Dayna Mellanby. (Blake's 7/The Mummy):

Entombed )

And for [livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny: Georgina Jones meeting Vila. (Adam Adamant Lives!/Blake's 7).


Wrong Number )

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 )

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 )

My entry for [livejournal.com profile] every20in20, Round 13 Horror/Action/Adventure Movies. I claimed The Mummy (2001).

The usual rules apply: want, take, have, credit. No hotlinking. Comments are ♥ Screencaps my own & all textures are from said screencaps. (I thought it'd be fun.)
lost_spook: (carry on Richard O'C go away reading)
Okay, well I still feel like I've only scratched the surface and I haven't read through some of the larger sections, like Fairy Tales, and The Sarah Jane Adventures (both of which I mean to), but here are a handful of great stories in unlikely fandoms, and my last Yuletide recs post. (Probably.)

I was inspired to go back by looking through the collection of prompts, and repeatedly wondering if someone wrote that request, because it sounded great... In many cases, someone had:

Spooks, Discworld, The Mummy, Rentaghost, Tough Guide, Swallows & Amazons and more )
lost_spook: (Donna and Josh)
Written for [livejournal.com profile] belantana for the crossover meme. (The prompt being Evie from The Mummy meeting someone from The West Wing. I don't propose for the others to be this long, but [livejournal.com profile] belantana kind of challenged me to introduce her to the show, which is new to me, too. I couldn't include Toby or Leo, but they get refs.)
