(I'm sorry, my DW/LJ is v frivolous and always has been and there we are).

Now that I've posted that AAL! fic and one more Runaway Tales effort today, then not only have I achieved a bingo for [community profile] trope_bingo (even if it was probably too late to actually count), I have posted my stray [community profile] hc_bingo fills over there for amnesty, and now my stray [community profile] trope_bingo fills and a bingo for [community profile] origfic_bingo!

You know what this means? I am now at liberty to destroy the world multiple times over!* (Well, and also that I probably need to write something for [community profile] genprompt_bingo and my new table for [community profile] who_allsorts at some point & both are as yet virgin fields of unfilled squares, but hey, never mind. APOCALYPSE SUMMER! Or whatever, I'm very easily distracted and I still need to write that eighteen-month overdue [community profile] fandom_stocking S&S fic, and I'd like to write some more 500 Prompts too.)

But: *\o/*

I actually have no idea what I'm doing for any of the above, though. Suggestions are always welcome, even if I may well ignore them. (Bingos are for fun and id-pursuance!) ;-p

* For [community profile] tic_tac_woe. Not really, obviously, that would be wrong.
lost_spook: (AAL!)
One last [community profile] trope_bingo fic! Yes, it's dodgy AAL! sex pollen fic, because somebody had to do it. Even if it probably should have been someone other than me. Although, I do love the fact that the sex pollen plot is in no way any less ridiculous or improbable than most of the actual plots. (<3)

And another [community profile] trope_bingo piece! This one, the huddling for warmth prompt I'd wanted to do for Nina/Jimmy/Vincent since I first watched Manhunt in January. Unlike the other, it should be reasonably comprehensible, although there are some references to the outcome of ep8 (A Different Kind of War). But mainly typical early-series bickering, really.

WIP Meme

lost_spook: (pg - lynda)
The return of that meme where you post random lines from any WIPs you have at the moment, because I felt like it.

(I see that I last did it in Jan 2016, which reminds me, I never did post that AAL! snippet as it stands. I should do that.)

More bondage, vampires, and fatal disasters under here )

That's four out of eight which are still the same old WIPs (and three from the previous post which I did complete in the meantime), but, to be fair, I keep writing and finishing other things in the meantime. I mean, I have [community profile] trope_bingo to finish and then I can destroy worlds for [community profile] tic_tac_woe! (I won't say nothing in the world can stop me, because some days it seems that just about anything in the world can stop me, especially in summer.)

A while back, [livejournal.com profile] hyarrowen and I were clearly having like thoughts on Major Richter & Dr Martel-related hurt/comfort, and I finally got my idea to work. So, for [livejournal.com profile] hyarrowen, [community profile] trope_bingo square "hurt/comfort" and [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo square "accept injury to protect someone," and set post-canon somewhere in the winter of 1944/45:

lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
So, after I started feeling a little better a couple of weeks ago, I gradually picked up some things I'd already finished/nearly finished and started poking at them & as a result have posted most of them in the appropriate places, but not linked here.

1. A Ruth Evershed Character Manifesto (Spooks) for [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers (containing 13 recs, much blathering about the greatness of Ruth and ships and possible ships, plus some pics and gifs). (I've been chipping away at this for at least a year now.)

2. I looked at my [livejournal.com profile] dw_guestfest WIP and found it was much more complete and okay than I'd thought and tidied it up. It's here:

Self-Made Man (956 words) by lost_spook

Summary: "Close to the Kandyman, were you?" / "I made him." Gilbert M and the Kandyman.

3. Someone reminded me that I once wrote a crossover fic for [livejournal.com profile] intoabar, which at the time I defaulted on due to being too ill to cope with the editing from my beta. I poked around my memory stick full of fic and found it and the beta-notes (which weren't actually difficult; I was just that ill back then) and posted that too:

4. And then I did manage to finish typing up a thing for [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales, which is also filling a square for [community profile] trope_bingo (au: historical), and I think most things are now at least back to my usual sort of hit and miss abilities. \o/

Midnight Escapade (All ages, 1905 words. Edward Iveson/Julia Graves, Christy Graves, Amyas Harding.) It's a gratuitous Regency AU that I wrote at Christmas when I was reading too many terrible Regency romances.
lost_spook: light + Ruth Evershed looking upwards (spooks - Ruth!)
So, someone gave me the Spooks film for Christmas. I have thoughts, but it was clearly more important to first write fic for Spy!Elizabeth Bennet Jennifer Ehle's character, so I did.

Title: Practice to Deceive
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 605
Characters/Pairings: Ruth Evershed/Geraldine Maltby, mentions of Ruth/Harry.
Notes/Warnings: None. It’s not even spoilery for The Greater Good. Set somewhere between late S9 & early S10. For [community profile] trope_bingo square “love triangle”. I mean, you can't put Elizabeth Bennet in Spooks and expect me not to ship her with Ruth, even if this quote didn't exist.
Summary: It’s not only Harry who’s preoccupied with a certain person, it seems.

Also here on AO3.

I have a [community profile] trope_bingo table! (I made it go lower case - so much better!)

Table under here )

Apart from the fact I completely missed "bodyswap" on the lists (I would have put it on my opt outs otherwise), that is a pretty great card. There's a pointless fic I've been tempted to write lately that would fill one of those squares, so now I will just have to write it, obviously. And other things. Yes! It's a nice card. (Although, having just done a whole Hurt/Comfort bingo card & thinking I should do trope bingo for a change, I'm LOL-ing at my very first square being hurt/comfort.)

In which I actually achieve a bingo! Hurrah! \o/ (Just have to work out to post to the comm now; I've never done a bingo before.)

Title: Subdivide and Multiply
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1778
Characters/Pairings: Slight Five/Tegan, implied Nyssa/Tegan, Turlough/Nyssa and possibly Five/Turlough. (Vague Five/Tegan/Nyssa/Turlough).
Notes/Warnings: AU from Terminus (in that Nyssa stays). It's a lot less shippy then it sounds.
Summary: Among the many things Tegan never planned, getting married to three aliens at once was definitely one of them, but that’s life on the TARDIS for you, or in this case, life off the TARDIS.

For [community profile] trope_bingo square “sharing a bed”, and directly from the discussion about Sedoretus I had a while back and [personal profile] john_amend_all’s comment that Doctor Who had the perfect Sedoretu in the shape of these four. (Allowing for Tegan/Nyssa, Five/Tegan, Turlough/Five and Turlough/Nyssa, with Turlough & Tegan and Nyssa & Five.) Somehow, the idea just wouldn’t go away, although I’m sure it could have been better done than this. It could certainly been far shippier, but that’s the trouble with me writing things. Also for [livejournal.com profile] livii in the 500 Prompts Meme - 44: This division must end – Five/Tegan (DW).

In the summer, when things were terrible, I wound up, mostly by way of wrangling, listening slowly to all five series of the BBC Radio comedy Bleak Expectations, which was one of the few things that cheered me up. Somewhere in the middle, my over-heated brain produced this, which I finally decided to type up for [community profile] trope_bingo. It isn't spoilery, but probably defies explanation, so just ignore me... (And, no, it didn't have David Collings in it. It had Anthony Head and Celia Imrie, though, and it was very funny.)

Title: An Absolutely True And In No Way Fabricated Account of the Difficult, Dangerous and Entirely Improbable Invention of the Biscuit
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 910 words
Characters/Pairings: Sir Philip Bin
Notes/Warnings: Pre-Series. If you haven’t ever heard BBC Radio’s Bleak Expectations, this is fandom appropriate ridiculousness, not merely out of my head. If you haven’t, no spoilers follow, merely a lot of nonsense.
Summary: A true and faithful tale of the invention of the biscuit by the father of Harry Biscuit, with some partial account of the effects of the controversial 1784 Landscaping Act, as set down by the famous novelist and inventor, Sir Philip Bin, in his own hand.

For [community profile] trope_bingo square “against all odds”, though somehow, I don’t think this was quite how the trope was meant to go, but I claim fair use. ;-p (Sir Philip's opinions, as I hope you already know, are parodic and very much not my own.)

A true and faithful tale... )

Summary: Sapphire has run her prey to ground and now there’s only one thing left to do...

For [community profile] trope_bingo square “indecent proposal”. I hope it counts - I think it does (it has two proposals, and neither of them are what you’d call decent). Also 100 Element Prompt 24: Sapphire – road trip & learning to be loved.

Notes/Warnings: A coda of sorts for 1980s UNIT. 1997
Summary: Why is it, when UNIT is involved, lunch always means something trying to eat you rather than the other way round?

For [livejournal.com profile] jjpor in the 500 Prompts Meme - Prompt 397: It was many and many a year ago – Nat/Tilly (1980s UNIT, DW). Also very belated (or just possibly very very early) birthday fic!

Plus, it fits the [community profile] trope_bingo “Reunion” square.

Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Silver/Steel
Characters: Steel (Sapphire and Steel), Silver (Sapphire and Steel)
Additional Tags: Trust Issues, Trope Bingo Round 2, Community: hc_bingo, Telepathy, Elemental Weirdness
Summary: Steel sees this as a means to an end, Silver as the path to a beginning. It’s a little more complicated than it ought to be.

For [community profile] hc_bingo square “Trust issues” & [community profile] trope_bingo square “rivals to lovers”. And I think I did what I wanted to do, so you should be safe from any more Silver/Steel from me in the near future. (Although sentences like that are just tempting fate, really, aren't they? :loL:) Also, even though I said I didn't mind about bingos - I wonder how many squares it's logistically possible to fill without achieving a bingo, because I seem to be aiming at finding out...

It's also [livejournal.com profile] fic_rush this weekend, so a good time for getting on with finishing and posting fic. (Everyone's welcome to pop in and join us for some encouragement and galactic domination by means of ninja penguins.) :-)

For the crossover square at [community profile] trope_bingo. I'm not sure where this came from, except I think somebody somewhere said something about Lix Storm and River Song, and then this happened. It was meant to be all 21st Century fandoms, for a change, but inevitably with me, it didn't end up that way.

Possibly Not In Chronological Order (or Five Times River Song Flirted With Danger) (2325 words) by lost_spook

Summary: River doesn’t know any ordinary people, either.

Also on Teaspoon. No spoilers for the crossover fandoms (to the very best of my knowledge). Whether they therefore all make sense is another matter.

So, as I said, last weekend, or whenever it was, I wrote the "plane crash" square for [community profile] hc_bingo. I'm sorry. It's all a bit sadistic, but Sapphire and Steel - it just worked far too easily.

Summary: Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, at the beginning and at the end…

I need to make a proper post again, but: I am better than last week, thanks to everyone who commented on the other post! ♥ It's still all been very limiting so I have mostly, when online, lurked, done some wrangling, and continued to edit this in snatches (which I had finished well before last weekend).

So, hopefully, I'll catch up presently, but I'm not sure I've not used up too much brain getting this finished, so I'm posting this now before I'm not even up to posting. (Probably this is unwise, because a thing I mostly wrote while slightly light-headed should have a beta, but I wanted to post and be damned for my typos. I didn't tag it with "Author Wrote This With An Overheated Brain" though. It would have given people the wrong idea altogether.)

Anyway, first [community profile] trope_bingo fic! It is Very Long for me these days. I'm fairly confident the other squares won't be... It's also very, very weird. (So, [personal profile] seriesfive, I hope you enjoy it! I blame you for everything: aiding and abetting, sharing a brain cell as regards Elements, lending me said brain cell when needed and luring me into trope_bingo via Round 1. And for all the lemurs.)

Look at me, absolutely not signing up for anything at all! *cough* Well, [community profile] trope_bingo looked like exactly my sort of thing, it's very laid back, and you can make any sort of fanworks for any fandom for the squares. My aim, though is to double up most of them with my existing icon and prompt challenges, or to use things I already have scribbled in my notebook - it could at least be a way of picking out which ones to type up, as sometimes I sink into a sort of apathy of none of them being worth the tiring process that writing still is at the moment. So it shouldn't be extra things, as such. Mostly...

Anyway, in short, I have a lovely card! [personal profile] aralias said I could have one and just sort of pat it, and I didn't think that, even if I did, I should be inclined to pat it, but, actually... I am mentally patting and hugging this one already.

And like a sheep, I signed up and lo! a card appeared )
