Title: Chance Encounter
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages/PG
Word Count: 2859
Characters/Pairings: Nat Webber, Tilly Holmes, Brigadier Winifred Bambera, Ancelyn (Nat/Tilly, Bambera/Ancelyn)
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.

Another prompt ficlet (or actual fic, I suppose, flimsy as it is).

From [livejournal.com profile] belantana: Nat and Tilly are stuck in a closet (up to you whether this is before or after they're married!) I assumed from this that at least some mild Nat/Tillyness was required… (Nat and Tilly being my 1980s UNIT OCs from a scarily epic series of Doctor Who fanfics I did a while back. There aren't any particular spoilers here, but I'm not sure it would make sense to anyone who hasn't read at least one of those. Sorry.)

(or whatever season's greetings you prefer). Since I hope very much not to be around to post after tomorrow, a Christmas recs post:

I'm sure most of these won't be new to people, but, hey it's Christmas, Doctor Who style!

I've just posted Chapter Twenty-Four.

In which Nat's nightmare becomes real.

(I'd hoped to get more than that, but I failed to do things like sleep last night... Anyway, that was the bit that needed re-writing, so the next bit should be up tomorrow.) I've only just posted it, so don't know when it may be okayed.
lost_spook: (1980s UNIT HQ)
See here, once it's okayed onto Teaspoon. The first two sections of Part Two. And while not all of this happens yet, in Part Two, UNIT receive a visit from a Torchwood agent, and suddenly Dr Webber's losing his temper, the Captain's giving unlikely orders, Tilly's a canary, and Sergeant Kennedy is a murderer. It's no wonder the Colonel's confused.

(The rest of this section shouldn't be too long in coming, so I may as well say that now...)

Edit: The chapters posted so far are up on Teaspoon (but the rest of Pt Two is yet to come. I did say that...)

Story: UNIT: End Game
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: WIP
Characters/Pairings: 1980s UNIT OCs - Nat Webber, Tilly Webber, Sgt Kennedy, Captain Evered, Anna Taylor, Colonel Ashcombe, Angela Morris.
Warnings: Lots of OCs? (There are telephone calls to actual canon characters in places...)

Summary: October 1987: UNIT's scientific advisor is desperate to leave at the end of the week, but first the world needs saving yet again - and this might be one time too many for everyone.


Not okayed onto Teaspoon yet. And, only ch1 so far - in which Nat annoys everyone. It's all very dramatic...

(And I've not really been busy today - I've been hunting things out from my hard-drive and sorting things mainly. Very lazy, in fact...)
lost_spook: (Liz)
I'm posting this early, but the fic is on Teaspoon, so it most likely will be the 21st by the time it's accessible:

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] john_elliott.

This was going to be an apology as to why I didn't write you birthday fic, but I suddenly worked out to make my idea a short one-shot instead of an epic, and lo and behold, there was fic!

A Stitch in Time
In which UNIT go about their business as usual. Except it's not 1970, it's 1922, the Doctor's run off somewhere, Liz is going undercover dressed as a flapper and the Brigadier's in need of some expert advice from someone... (1882 words, All ages)

This fic ought to be set in a more distant time for the point to work, but I couldn't resist the 1920s once I'd thought of it. But the other birthday-ish thing about this fic is that - if you want, you can now make an open series on Teaspoon and put my story into it. (Just be careful - the power crazed feeling that goes with this is worrying.)

Hope you have a nice day tomorrow!!

(If others are going 'Eh?' you must go at once and read John's fic Business As Usual in which the logic behind this is explained. And because it's brilliant, of course.)
lost_spook: (1980s UNIT)
Normal service will be resumed at some point with memes and catching up with people and all, but I posted Chapter 1 of the next UNIT fic this evening:

UNIT: Silver Bullet

(Waiting for the okay onto Teaspoon).

Unlike the last one, this is back to proper UNIT stuffs, with monsters and running around, and a cameo from Liz Shaw... and possibly one or two other unexplained happenings (all will become clear in time).

(But I had a lovely weekend!)

More fic

Parts Two and Three of UNIT: Wraiths now up at Teaspoon. (Or more correctly, Pt 2 is up, pt 3 is awaiting the okay. And, yes, they both have Sergeant Kennedy in them.)

And in rl, my housemate is trapped in Crete... 8-o

No ficlets this week - just UNIT fic!

Summary: June 1987: UNIT have some elusive aliens to track down. Meanwhile, there's a new recruit causing trouble, some locals who've taken a dislike to soldiers, and Captain Evered has had a letter. Must be the end of the world, or something like it... (And in which we meet three new characters, and, um, really, not much happens.)

(Just a note, continuity-wise, for those who are following this rather overlong saga, this is before the wedding.)

*Does little dance of joy at getting this launched at last* Fic! It seems like a long while somehow...

Oh, yes, please note: not yet up on Teaspoon.

Okay, take two. My misgivings about putting this on Teaspoon, given its OC focus, overtook me, so I whipped it out of the queue and am posting it here instead.

It's now complete (well, when okayed onto Teaspoon), and the guest DW character will be revealed in the epilogue, but I don't think it'll be a shock to anyone.

See here for the story.

You know, if you want to, and you don't mind a whole lot of OCs not doing very much in the 1980s. ;-)

Warnings: Absence of DW characters? Some possible cuteness in the Epilogue? None, really.

Summary: May 1987: Colonel Crichton has retired, his replacement’s impressing no one, and now UNIT’s scientific advisor has gone AWOL. What’s a UFO-investigating top secret military outfit to do?

Oh yes yet more UNIT fic )

It isn't okayed onto Teaspoon yet, so please be patient as usual. (It's probably not the best day to post something, either!)

Title: UNIT: The Great Mince Pie Mystery
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 6033
Characters: Colonel Crichton, Sarah Jane Smith, K9, Winifred Bambera, Other

Summary:December 1984: Colonel Crichton is trying to see Sarah Jane and K9 off the premises; elsewhere some vicious little aliens are causing trouble - and they'll eat anything from mince pies to members of staff. It must be Christmas.

A few notes - don't worry, despite being another 1980s UNIT story, it's set earlier and is a standalone bit of nonsense. (For those who have been reading, it does give us the chance to meet another one of the Doctor's successors...)

And since it was set in December 1984 and it seemed wrong not to refer to Band Aid, I... Well, it then seemed good to me to put in references to as many Christmas songs as I could. (Or: It Seemed Funny At The Time).

So, a competition: whoever spots the most songs gets to give me a prompt & I'll write a ficlet or short story over the festive period. Pm me here or via Teaspoon with your answers and prompt and we'll see what happens. (This seems really egotistical, but I think as soon as I say there are refs to songs, some people will look for them & all I can do to make it up to them online is to offer fic. I can't even do icons).

If you want to, pm me by Dec 19th with yr answers & prompt or two &, (given the fact that there won't be a lot of takers), you'll be in with a good chance. Obviously, no adult-rated, graphic prompts (you won't get them and you wouldn't like them if you did) and, sadly, slashy stuff is not my thing either. It doesn't have to be Doctor Who. (I wrote a list of things I will try here, for a meme). I imagine I'd write it rough while I'm home and type it up after I get back, so it would appear around New Year. No one will know who won till then. Most of the quotes/refs are so obvious I might as well have hung tinsel round them, but some are more obscure. Count this 'comp' as my apology. (Christmas stories should be more dark night, candlelight and starlight and hope, but I fail yet again.)

It's an offer and if no one does pm I shall pretend someone does and I'm emailing the fic to them, la la la.

Usual disclaimer: This has not been okayed on to Teaspoon yet. If it doesn't appear, I'll look even sillier.

After going from one extreme to another (1 being: "I don't think I can straighten this one into anything I can actually post!" and 2: "Hey, what if I added in an extra Missing Scene where..." *rolls eyes*), here's the last Missing Scene from Lonely House.

It's very daft but oddly pivotal. (And please take it as read that everyone looks very pretty in their best.)

Summary: UNIT are just no good at social occasions that don’t include monsters. And Nat is trying his best to be sensible, but nobody else is helping, not even the Colonel.

February 1986 )
lost_spook: (Ruth!)
The other 'missing scenes' for Lonely House happened after the events of that story and before those of Stardust and therefore could hardly be included, although this one I considered tagging on, but I couldn't think of any way of doing it that wouldn't be weird. But they fed into Nat's conversations with Evelyn nevertheless.

As promised - missing scenes from my UNIT series. (Look, two people asked, okay...)

I'm very pleased with myself because I finished UNIT: Stardust on Saturday. Especially as it seemed to be growing into some sort of plotless, sprawling monster, I was quite relieved to find, it gave up and ended even before I expected it. I'm sure anyone still reading it will be equally relieved.

Not that I've posted it all - due to writing the split action bits completely separately I was already four and a half chapters ahead of what I'd posted. I've added two more (usual Teaspoon disclaimer applying) and will post the rest at some point when I've finished tweaking the Epilogue (that could take a while).

I'm finally free to look at what else I was writing... Well, if I have time. but it's nice. So, what else is there? I have: gosh, another Six story to finish, a Christmas fic (UNIT! Mince pies! etc.), somebody's birthday fic, can't think who or why (heh), and, generally a scary amount of other things.

Oh, and I'm also very relieved to see that [livejournal.com profile] calufrax seems to be back in action. And asking for reccers again. I would, but I've already done two stints this year. It seems greedy!

Title UNIT: Stardust
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: WIP
Characters: Sixth Doctor, Evelyn Smythe, the Master, Colonel Crichton, various OC 80s UNIT members.
Summary: October 1986: The Doctor and Evelyn arrive at UNIT just as the Colonel and his team are investigating the arrival of some mysterious aliens. Worse, the Doctor suspects a very familiar foe may be to blame.

Well, here we go again... I hope this works, what with juggling all these characters, but look! I wroted something with the Doctor actually in it. ;-)

Six and Evelyn, too, who are rather fun by themselves anyway. No Evil Torchwood this time, but the Master is nasty enough all by himself.

As usual, you'll need to patient until it appears on Teaspoon. (Well, you know, assuming everyone's not rolling their eyes and going "Not another of those UNIT fics...")

Title UNIT: Lonely House
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: Teen (for very occasional language & some angst in future chapters).
Characters: Colonel Crichton, Liz Shaw, Original Characters

November 1985: There’s alien slime and tea and explosions, but that’s just UNIT. Now Colonel Crichton’s trying to wage a war with words instead of guns, Torchwood want their ghost back and sometimes it takes more than winning to save a life. (But after that, they’ll be right back to tea and explosions and people turning green and saving the world.)

I realised that when I saw people's request, my fic on Teaspoon is very misleading - I must add a disclaimer here that (for various reasons), I actually have whacking great gaps in my Three-era stories I've seen. So if my favourite bits seem lacking, that could be why.

I think I'll have to continue in another post now.

Fic commentary for UNIT: Transition. Spoilers for the story and also for Image of the Fendahl. Requested by [livejournal.com profile] jjpor.

I started writing this sensibly last night and then John posted the suggestion of character commentaries and being used to writing for This Time Round, I’d already been having hard work squashing, and well, this is what happened (probably in a back room somewhere in the Round):
