[sticky post] Welcome post

Hail, fellow travellers, and well met. My LJ is mostly for fic, recs, icons, vids and fannish nonsense - fic/vids/icons etc. remain open, but the rest has got largely flocked these days (people were scraping entries via tags, unfortunately). I'm terribly obscure and multi-fannish, but generally happy to make new friends. I crosspost from Dreamwidth, too, but tend to read my flist via LJ.

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: Fourth Doctor Era - 6 Prompts (for dw_allsorts) | Hurt/Comfort Bingo Card | Trope Bingo card | 100 Element Prompts | 50 Ficlets | Shakespeare Plays Watched.

Also the 500 Prompts Meme. runaway_tales: Masterpost here.

Dear Yuletide Letter 2015 here

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. No posts made here to be reproduced elsewhere, thanks. If you wish to link to any open posts, of course, please do so!

Writing meme!

I no doubt shouldn't be doing this (I have yet to write my Not For Prime Time fic, although, yay, I finally have a proper idea & it should happen soon), but this is apparently the other half of the meme I did last month & it looks like fun, so...

The usual rules apply - send me a number and a pairing/two or more characters and get a drabble or ficlet if I'm feeling so inspired.

(As ever, anything I know is fair game; my main fandoms are in my interests, my tags have even more & if you happen to pick something I'm not feeling up to, I'll just say so.)

51. “What the hell are you wearing?”
53. “Who crawls through someone’s window at 4am to go for ice cream?!”
54. “I don’t hate you. I could never hate you. That’s the problem.”
55. “Our first date is a picnic on a beach under the stars? Have you swallowed a romance novel? Do I need to call a doctor?”
56. “I can’t stand the thought of losing you.”
57. “Teach me to fight.”
58. “I’d die for you. Of course, I’d haunt you in the afterlife but really, it’s the thought that counts.”
60. “Before you decide to murder me, let me explain…”
61. “I love you. I’m completely and utterly in love with you. Please don’t get married.”
62. “It’s only one night, we’ll just share the bed.”
63. “Stop running from this. I know I’m not the only one who feels it.”
64. “Are you ticklish?”
65. “I wish you could see yourself the way I see you.”
67. “Of all the people I could’ve gotten stuck in an elevator with and it just had to be you.”
69. “Why the hell are you bleeding!?”
71. “Kiss me, quick!”
72. “I will knock you on your ass if you even think about it.”
73. “We shouldn’t be doing this.”
74. “Don’t let go.”
75. “I’m going for a swim. Do you wanna join me?”
76. “I need you to pretend we’re dating…”
77. “There was never a choice.”
78. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have kissed you.”
79. “That’s the third time I’ve saved your life!”
80. “How can you think I’m anything but hopelessly in love with you?”
81. “I need you to leave.”
82. “This is all your fault! I can’t believe I listened to you!”
83. “It’s always been you.”
84. “I’m dying.”
85. “I will never apologize for saving your life, even if it costs me my own.”
86. “I guess dying with you isn’t the worst way to go.”
87. “You were never just my friend.”
88. “Don’t panic but I think we might have accidentally gotten married…”
89. “I’m not leaving you!”
90. “I can’t do this anymore.”
91. “I remember everything.”
92. “What do you want me to say?”
93. “I tried, but I just can’t stay away from you anymore.”
95. “There’s no going back if we do this.”
96. “I never thought you’d hurt me but I was wrong. You hurt me the most.”
99. “We’re in an abandoned lodge in the middle of nowhere. Sure, you’re totally right, nothing bad could ever happen here.”

(I deleted some numbers/quotes. There were plenty, after all.)

Fic: Waiting for the Sky to Fall

Some Enemy at the Door fic, written for Hyarrowen, who wanted something to do with the Atlantic Wall and who shares my appreciation of Martel and Richter (and Committee Man!). I don't know if this was what was wanted, as it's mainly Martel & Richter discussing some consequences of the Wall for the Islands, but it's what I came up with:

Waiting For the Sky to Fall (1218 words) by lost_spook

Happy Birthday...

It's a very good day, that produced three fangirls - not only me, but [personal profile] st_aurafina and femme_slash_fan! Happy birthday to both of you! Here's to a lovely day and best wishes for the upcoming year!

And apropos of nothing much, except that I found it yesterday & it's one fandom we all share, here's a vid rec:

This was somebody's anniversary tribute, so I don't know how I've avoided it till now. It's lovely! Very handy for if you ever need to answer the question, "What is Doctor Who and why should I watch it/why is it the best show ever?" (One warning, there's a sequence early on that has some quick cutting if that sort of thing is a problem.)

1. The Obscure & British Commentfest continues! \o/ It is my birthday weekend now, so I shall be pimping again, at least a little, to see if I can poke it into some further weekend action (and then I promise I shall at least stop pimping). It's going nicely and we have a whole bunch of fills (including Spike from Buffy paying a visit to Nouvion and Steel getting sold suits from Mr Humphreys, just for starters).

Thanks to everyone who has helped promote it! It really does make a difference. I also have some rebloggable Tumblr posts, if anyone wants to give it a shout over there. (Most of the time when I complain about Tumblr, that's just me, because I was clearly a person made for LJ and therefore not Tumblr material, but you do realise when trying to promote something multi-fandom like this where the tag-tracking just isn't going to help much, that you have nowhere to go and are totally reliant on reblogs. If I'm missing some major fandom newsletter-type submission blog, let me know.) Anyway, please don't feel obliged, despite my over-thinking stuff, but if you are willing and able, the posts are here, here, here and here. Thank you!

1a. A side-effect of the Commentfest and LJ's relative quietness is that I get temporarily shunted to top of the day's LJs. (And, yes, such power! It puts me up above the gods...! etc. etc. And then I crash straight back into my usual obscurity.)

Anyway, the point of this is that LJ has a button you can press to automatically friend the top 15 journals, so I get random friending during the fest. If you have friended me over the last week and you did it on purpose and aren't a bot, please do comment to this post and wave at me, and I'll friend you back. (I just don't want to friend people who wanted someone popular and interesting! It would be embarrasing all round.)

2. Not entirely about the fest, but definitely Obscure & British - I have been writing some things! Here is an NYR fic, two fills for the fest, and a belated Trope Bingo effort, which can all be found over at AO3 (and the fills via the Masterpost, too, of course):

Obscure & British Commentfest 2016

The commentfest is now live here at my LJ! (Anon commenting enabled). Please feel free to prompt & fill!

If anyone's happy to pimp, that would also be wonderful. Banners are here, complete with handy coding inc. the link. (And apologies to anyone who shares many of the appropriate comms with me - spammage is now beginning. /o\)

Obscure & British Commentfest 2016

Welcome to the Obscure & British comment fest IV! This is a comment fest for any small(ish) British fandom and open to all fanworks.

If you've ever loved any (non-large) British fandoms, find yourself too obscure for most fests, or you're busy wondering why there's still no Emma Peel in all this Avengers stuff, you're in the right place. Come on in and help yourself to a cup of tea and a crumpet. Also you should make prompts and fill them.

Rules & Guidelines
This commentfest works in the same way as most comment ficathons, although all kinds of fanworks are welcome. (Fanart, icons, fanmixes, vids, or whatever your creative mind can come up with or prompt for.) Just leave your prompt and/or browse through other people's prompts to see what you can fill.

1. Be polite - no bashing or shaming of anyone, or any prompts, characters, ships or fandoms! Thank you.

2. One prompt per post, please use format: Fandom(/Fandom), Character(s)/Pairing(s), prompt (i.e "Spooks, Tom/Ruth, apocalypse AU"). You may repost prompts from previous years (or even from elsewhere, as long as that's okay with the other fest/comm/whatever).

3. Post fills as replies (or links) to the comment containing the prompt. Please format the subject line as follows: Fandom - Character(s)/Pairing(s) - Ratings/Warnings (if included). There's a fills thread at the start of the post. Please also link your fill here, if you can. (I will also start up a masterlist post as soon as we have some fills.)

4. You may fill your own prompts if you wish, and multiple fills are more than welcome. (No prompt claiming needed.)

5. For crossovers any fandom is allowed as long as the first fandom qualifies. (If it's a cracky multi-fandom crossover prompt, that's fine, too, though try and make sure there are always equal or more eligible fandoms in proportion to those that are non-eligible.)

6. Any other questions - there's a questions thread at the start of the post if there's anything else you want to ask.

7. Prompt, fill, away!

Eligible Fandoms
Basically, any rare to smallish/medium British fandom, no matter how odd, old, obscure, non-existent, random or how shiny and new - anything that's not on the below list is fine. (Definitions of British are also fairly wide and hand-wavy - check on the questions thread if you're not sure.)

Non-eligible fandoms
ALL non-British fandoms are ineligible and the following fandoms are British but too large and therefore ineligible for this fest (although don't forget that you can prompt for any fandom as a crossover with an eligible fandom):

Chronicles of Narnia (all), Doctor Who (2005+), Downton Abbey, Harry Potter, The Hobbit (all), James Bond (Craig!Bond films), The Kingsman, Lord of the Rings (all), Merlin, The Musketeers (BBC), One Direction, Pride & Prejudice (all), Primeval, Robin Hood (BBC), Sherlock (BBC), Sherlock Holmes - Arthur Conan Doyle, The Silmarillion, Torchwood.

(RPF is welcome! Please use specific categories when prompting (e.g. history by century, and all actor/bandom RPF by individual series/film/band or whatever grouping seems most appropriate. In the spirit of the fest, please try and avoid RPF for non-eligible shows and super-popular actors like Tom Hiddleston or Benedict Cumberbatch.)

There's no closing date for prompts or fills - the fest will stay open until next year's post goes up. Once you've created a fill, you're welcome to crosspost it anywhere you like. (If you're posting to AO3, there's no collection for the fest, but there is an "Obscure & British Commentfest" tag you can use if you want.)

If you want to promote the fest, then thank you! Please do. You can find a selection of banners here, or feel free to make your own.

You can find last year's fest here. Also: O&B 2014 and O&B 2013. If you want to fill or repost a previous prompt, you may, although please also post to the fills thread on the current post.

ETA: Masterlist of Fills!

For those who don't have an LJ account, or prefer to remain anonymous, anon commenting is on!

31x Mr Palfrey of Westminster Icons

While I was ill I also rewatched most of Mr Palfrey of Westminster (starring Alec McCowen, Caroline Blakiston, and Clive Wood) and remembered how good it was once it got going (and how little of it there is, sadly) so it was my next choice for an icon set.

Fannish bits

1. It is nearly time for the Obscure & British Commentfest! I was in two minds whether to run it or not this year - up until a few weeks ago, ever since when I've been basically hopping up and down going "Is it time yet? IS IT NOW?" Well, next weekend and onwards, it will be. The May online b'day party for those who love obscure and British fandoms. (For a given meaning of obscure; please let's not go into that again...)

\o/ Any fandoms I should make banners of that I haven't already done?

2. I made a thing: an Unconventional Courtship Generator Tumblr. It seemed like disposing of the masses of cracky summaries I've generated via Tumblr was one of the things it might be useful for. We shall see! (Probably not. Is Tumblr useful for anything in the end, except that lonely in a crowd feeling? /cynical yet hopeful)

3. Sorry about the meme ficlets I owe. For some reason, when Victoria Wood died, it really knocked me off my stride. I don't know why. Hopefully this week! (Please send a note to other celebrities not to die and inconvenience my fannish pursuits).

... nearly the commentfest. *nods*

ETA: Also am reading more terrible Regency Romances. Latest heroines were called Roslyn and Lindsey. Lindsey has a sister called Blythe. /o\

28 x Poldark (1975) Icons

28 Poldark (1975) set of icons. It was meant to be mostly other characters, as I'd already done a Ross/Demelza set a while back, but I couldn't quite keep them out, really.

Not For Prime Time Letter

Dear Prime Time Player,

I have a terrible tendency to waffle in these Dear Author letters, so let it be said that I am a great believer in the story that you want to tell being the one that's going to be the most compelling to read. If you're the sort of person who likes a concise letter and a free hand, just go for what you have in mind as long as you at least try to avoid any pet hates listed here. All the extra details & prompts are for souls like me who might want them. Do not attempt to give me everything below in one fic; you'd do yourself an injury. If anything seems contradictory, it's mostly because I like different things at different times in different fandoms.

Likes: Humour, missing adventures, friendships, hurt/comfort, fantasy, history, mysteries, ghosts, plot, casefic, crossovers, gen, het, femslash. I do enjoy mild shippiness, and I adore reading about the subtleties, interactions and differing dynamics of relationships of all kinds between people/groups. (This is hard. I like lots of things.)

Dislikes: graphic horror/violence, explicit pr0n, PWP, sugary sentimentality, incest, rape, or unending angst without hope. I do like some AUs on occasion, but in general for me adding fantastical elements to a mundane fandom is fine, turning a fantasy/sf fandom mundane not so much, and I tend not to be into fusions. I'm not keen on unexpected (non-canonical) character death, generally (although it will be more okay in something like Spooks or B7 than happier fandoms). If I love a fandom, I tend to love most if not all of it, so it's really best to avoid any character bashing or assumptions that canon always needs fixing. If I have any pet fixits I'd like, I'll mention it below. I don't have any triggers, though, so please don't panic, and I can absolutely take some of these things if that's what the fic needs.

In short, please don't worry, I like lots of different things and am sure I will enjoy your fic. I hope you also have fun writing (and many apologies if anything in this letter is making you tear out your hair).

Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Spooks, VoyagerCollapse )

Meme! Meme!

When you finally finish one writing meme, what's to do but ignore all those things you're meant to be doing and start another? Stolen way back when from doreyg.

Comment with a number, and a pairing/two or more characters, and I'll try to write you a ficlet or drabble.

(As ever, anything I've mentioned or have in my interests/tags is fair game. If I can't do something I'll say so. And no guarantees - if I get too tired, I'll just draw a line under it. Some numbers are missing because I deleted them. Of course, some numbers may have already been missing; you know what memes are like.)

Fics, Recs, Various

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 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 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
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who (1963)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: The Kandyman & Gilbert M
Characters: Gilbert M (Doctor Who), The Kandyman (Doctor Who)
Additional Tags: Serial: s149 The Happiness Patrol, Backstory, Canonical Character Death, Community: dw_guestfest, Community: trope_bingo
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 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:

Bar-Room Brawl (2512 words) by lost_spook
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Downton Abbey, Doctor Who (1963)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Tegan Jovanka, Tom Branson, Fifth Doctor, Vislor Turlough
Additional Tags: Crossover, Community: intoabar, Walk Into A Bar, Aliens, Fights, 1920s
Summary: Tegan Jovanka walks into a bar… and meets Tom Branson!

4. And then I did manage to finish typing up a thing for 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.

24x Adam Adamant Lives! Icons

Despite my radio silence, I have continued to progress quite nicely over the last week & even survived an out-patient trip back to the hospital without being too exhausted afterwards. However, I've still been not so able to comment and interact here yet, but that should start to return to normal this week, too, I hope. In the meantime, I slowly made an icon or two each day, so now I have another set to post! (I don't know what to do next, though. I am working my way through this list and am not having any immediate thoughts for Set 8 and onwards. Feel free to give me suggestions, which I may take up or ignore as I feel led. ;-p)

Anyway, when you run out of AAL! eps because of cruel burnination, what else do you do to keep cheerful but icon it?

26x Sleepy Hollow (S2) Icons

I am a little better than last week now (thankfully!) but still v low; also it's hard to comment due to people in my house (looking after me but also eating up my energy too, unfortunately! I'm a ungrateful so-and-so). However, I'd finished this set before being hospitalised, so here are some pretty icons in the meantime. (Your interesting comments last post were all GREAT and MUCH appreciated even if I haven't managed a reply yet!! Thank you!! <3)
