[sticky post] Welcome post

spooks - Ruth!
Hail, fellow travellers, and well met. My LJ is mostly for fic, recs, icons, vids and fannish nonsense, and the majority of that is open. Personal and rambly stuff (mostly dull) is usually all that is flocked. I'm terribly obscure and multi-fannish, but generally happy to make new friends.

My fic:
lost_spook on AO3
vvj5 at A Teaspoon and An Open Mind (the Doctor Who archive)

My vids:
lostspook1 at YouTube

Past prompt tables etc: Hurt/Comfort Bingo Card | Trope Bingo card | 100 Element Prompts | 50 Ficlets | Shakespeare Plays Watched.

Also the 500 Prompts Meme.

Notes on permission:

Any remixes etc. based on fanworks of mine are fine - go ahead, and do let me know; I'd be thrilled. And, obviously, credit is nice. I would however appreciate asking before podficcing (I'd just really like to check and edit the fic first).

ETA (08/03/14): Am currently having trouble with bandwidth (presumably via hotlinking) at Photobucket - so am unfortunately gradually deleting past icon sets to try and solve this. Sorry about that.

12 Characters Meme (Yes, again...!)

dw - Six & Peri
I said I was going to rewrite those questions, didn't I? So, here we are - the 12 characters meme as recreated by yours truly. I kept an odd question or two (and stole others from other memes I have known), but it now has slightly less shipping, fewer questions that can be answered by yes or no and hopefully more even use of the 12 characters. For everything else, I'm sorry, but I at least did test drive it personally first... /o\

Anyway, here are the rules (and my apologies to whoever came up with this meme originally): Write a list of 12 characters from any fandom. Then answer the questions under the cut. (Don't look at the questions before you make your list!)

1. Eighth Doctor (DW)
2. Orac (B7)
3. Regina Mills (Once Upon A Time)
4. Ace (DW)
5. Miss Marple
6. Malcolm Wynn-Jones (Spooks)
7. The Master (Delgado) (DW)
8. Ros Myers (Spooks)
9. Sixth Doctor (DW)
10. Rupert Giles (BtVS)
11. Mary Crawley (Downton Abbey)
12. Harry Sullivan (DW)


The questions under hereCollapse )

Fic: No Bones Broken, No Harm Done

Author: lost_spook

Word Count: 1395
Characters/Pairings: Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer

Summary: The last thing Frank wants is tea and sympathy; it only complicates things.

For the [community profile] hc_bingo square “assault”. Hopefully, there won't be any more Public Eye for this, but I had ideas for 4 out of 5 squares and then... well, what fictional character do I write who's most likely to get beaten up? (And he spent at least 18 months in Brighton. It must have happened at some point during that time.)

No Bones BrokenCollapse )

12 Characters Meme (Quick Reprise)

b7 - servalan
I was saying to AstroGirl that this meme seems to have been originally designed for one fandom and as a means of exploring brave new ships and that sort of thing, and that we should (for science!) both do it that way. Well, she did Once Upon A Time, so here's Blake's 7.

I, er, did say that then I should rewrite the questions, but we'll see...

1. Roj Blake
2. Vila Restal
3. Jenna Stannis
4. Kerr Avon
5. Oleg Gan
6. Cally
7. Travis
8. Servalan
9. Dayna Mellanby
10. Del Tarrant
11. Soolin
12. Carnell

Here we go againCollapse )

Fic what I would never write, honest (pt3)

dw - two
The last few! Probably less exciting, because they mostly turned out quite sensible and I, er, might have sneakily ducked a low-flying prompt or two, but here goes...

More fic I would never write except I didCollapse )

Fic what I would never write, honest (pt2)

dw - oswin
It's just possible that I got a wee bit carried away writing that massive Whoniverse orgy that I would never write. *cough*

(Minus any actual orgy-ing, of course. Obviously.)

clocketpatch: "DW: ALL of the Doctors and Companions (including Big Finish, Book, Expanded universe, Cushing, and Curse of the Fatal Death Companions and Doctors) have a massive Space!Orgy together on Pluto."

But the thing is, while I would never be the person to write an orgy, I have always had a weakness for multi-era crack...

There might be 2000 words behind the cut...Collapse )

It felt like time for a foolish meme...

spooks - Ruth!
So I resurrected this one:

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.


If (things being what they are), snippets don't happen, I will at least describe the fic, possibly even with some slight commentary or reviews - or something.


*waits in trepidation*

(ETA: You know what this means. I might have to watch 2.5 again. Oh, the pain and hardship... :lol:)

One Sentence Meme (Press Gang edition)

pg - lynda
I just found this on my hard-drive - I did it a few weeks ago as a writing exercise and forgot about it. (And I'm definitely stretching the definition of a sentence to breaking point in some cases. Heh.) I can't remember where I found the meme - somewhere about.

One sentence Press Gang ficsCollapse )

(It's hard. I think I prefer word limits!)

Signal Boosting: Calufrax

dw - Eleven reading knitting book
calufrax is seriously out of reccers this time. If you have at least 4 fics from Teaspoon that you could rec, you can help.

I've literally just recced, so I can't do much more myself just now, but it is worthwhile & it's usually fun.

It's not scary - everything you need, including the posting template is there in the sign-up post. calufrax gets boosted on to Tumblr and other places, too & non-LJ users can rec as well.

(I don't do much signal boosting and I know most people round here follow the comm anyway... but it's calufrax, people, I have to try.)

Survivors (1975) icons

survivors
Whatever I'll end up thinking of Survivors, the first few eps struck me as being fun to mine for icons & I was in the right sort of mood, so... here are some icons from episodes 1 & 2 (The Fourth Horseman & Genesis, 1975):

Ohhh...

s&s - silver
I Googled "Allo Allo" (for reasons of spelling something or other) and got this result at the top of the page, all unexpectedly:

Allo Allo actor Sam Kelly dies aged 70

:-(



I loved him most as Sam in On The Up, but for my sister and me, watching Allo Allo when we were little, Hans was always our favourite.

Vid: They Don't Know About Us (Public Eye)

pe - mrs mortimer
For [community profile] hc_bingo square "Learning to be loved".

I made a Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer fanvid, Helen POV. I didn't even think that was actually possible, but apparently it is if you're me and you don't have much in the way of standards when it comes to vidding. In the middle of looking for some thoughtful, quiet old 50s song or an instrumental piece that would do, I somehow wound up with this. (I worried for a bit about whether or not it still met the prompt, but I've decided it does. I hope.)

They Don't Know About Us
Public Eye: Nobody else understands what Mrs Mortimer sees in Frank. (Frank Marker/Helen Mortimer, S4 fanvid.)

Music: They Don't Know by Kirsty MacColl

Or, in short, this is what happens in S4 according to Mrs Mortimer. Not particularly spoilery as such. Bookended with a little S6. Whether it's ironic, or horribly shippy, or just that Mrs Mortimer is right in fundamentals (and the long-term) if not the immediate outcome, I don't know.

Embed & Links under cutCollapse )

Bingo card!

dw - oswin
Wisely or otherwise, I signed up for [community profile] hc_bingo again and got myself a card:

My hc_bingo cardCollapse )

I can see a few potential bingos there, without involving any scary squares. We'll see what happens!

Well, what happens will be (inevitably) that I carry on writing fic of interest to few/no other people, but at least I might achieve a bingo with it. Still, you never know. (I think I can definitely combine a square with one of the dw_allsorts fics I have in mind.) Any suggestions? (Before I go off and write a whole Public Eye bingo to the bemusement of the rest of the world.)

Anyway, writing's been weird lately. Let's hope this helps...
