I'm tired, so I turned to the Unconventional Courtship Generator to amuse me and had to share again. I'm sorry, but I mean, you want to know all about that time Tegan had to edit the Fourth Doctor's epic erotic novel, surely . . .

That and the time a Dalek got together with an alien banana )

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.

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!! )

I have been a bit AWOL, but for reasons and also now I have a vid! And, all right, so it is a vid of James Maxwell, BUT it is totally a vid containing cute children and animals, paper aeroplanes, stuffed toys, random barometers, wilful destruction of property, Emma Peel kicking ass, vampires, tea and coffee drinking, two Henry VIIs, rocks, Nazis, space ships, and an actual kitchen sink. Also epic hand-holding (but not anything like as much as there could have been).

Cut for Embed )

And, at some point, I will catch up with other stuff a bit. (♥)

Through this week I rapidly approached (and have now passed) the Awefull moment where I would finish The Power Game and not have anything else to watch where people are likely to accuse one another of clinging on like a neurotic limpet with a peeping tom complex. Naturally, I pulled out my 500 Prompts list to find the one Persiflage had so kindly left for just such an occasion. Me: "Hmm, betrayal, that could fit everyone..." *writes five times fic that is a series of (hopefully not too) incomprehensible conversations* What can I say? Sadly, the sarcasm is lagging a long way behind the show.

In other news, I managed to get a solitary blue and white bran flake in my pack of otherwise-normal Bran Flakes this week. I get the white frosting, but I didn't think we had blue breakfast cereal in the UK. Where did the blue come from? Is it an alien plot?
