Let us sit upon the ground...

1. I decided to do naarmamo again this year. We'll see how it goes, but it's very laid back (indeed, it's practically horizontal in the nicest possible way) and I can always stop, or go down to every other day if I find it a bit much still. Naarmamo, is National Art Making Month, but it's just fun - you make and share one thing that counts as art each day and you can join in whenever. (It started yesterday, but I know people wouldn't mind if someone turned up on the last day if that was when they found it, or all they can manage.) At the moment, I'm planning to do icons each day. (I will share them here, too, at some point.)

2. I finally posted my Eighth Doctor Recs List to who_at_50, just in case there is anyone who would be interested but doesn't follow the comm. It was meant to be part of last year's big fanworkathon, but, er, it was delayed. I was at the time thinking of doing posts for the other two generally under-represented Doctors (along with Two and One), those being Six and Seven, but it's way past the deadline now and maybe it seems a little big-headed, I don't know. I probably will. I like recs lists and masterlists and things. I can't help it.

3. I've been starting to do some odd little bits of Heroes of the Revolution (my gloomy 1970s fake TV show) for runaway_tales, though I don't know if I'll eventually pluck up courage to do any posting. (Hopefully!) Anyway, I was trying to write a timeline for my alternate post-war history. (It's mostly vague). But it was interesting. I had previously settled on 1991 as the date of the series, but I think I should probably pull it back a bit to the mid 1980s. But I was thinking about various things off the back of this, and also the fact that the moment I start speculating about what happened to rl important people, it doesn't work, even though it's a perfectly sensible question. (If there's anyone you'd like me to kill off in this alternate reality, I could do it quite easily, though... ;-p In the meantime, I shall be contemplating foreign agents in Britain and what they might be up to.)

I love the idea of that fake TV show....

I'm glad it's not just me! :lol:

Ooh. Can I vote for the entire Royal Fambly? I'm sure you could arrange a plane crash en masse during a flight from alien invasion, or something. *glint in eye* *gets out knitting, checks guillotine for sharpness and licks blood off fingertip*

Posting is good! It's not really writing until somebody's reading!

Oh, the Royal Family is definitely dead, or in exile or something. I don't know exactly what happened (it was decades before my story began and at the moment I have a 1940s-1958 block on my time line that says "WWII/Cold War/Bad Stuff happens") but yeah. We had a dictator instead so it wasn't an improvement, but now we've got Julian Glover, so I suppose that might be?

Aw, thanks. I probably will. Because it's just odd little pieces - fanfic for my non-existent show! - I'm not sure what order to post them in, but I think I'm at the point where I've got two that might do as a starter, so sometime soon. I will also post them or link them back here eventually if I do. I suspect the people on runaway_tales aren't feeling the lack of fic for gloomy 1970s type political AUs. :-D

The Cookie Monster or slime-mould would be an improvement on the Windsor family sitcom, but hey YMMV.

Only because they don't know what they're missing yet.

I think I'd rather have the royal family in the background of a democratic state than live under a plebian but totalitarian dictator who gets paranoid and has people killed regularly. But, yes, they are definitely deaded in my reality. ;-)

Aww. :lol: I suspect not, but aww.

You're very rational! lol, and I'm possibly not, on that subject. *proletarian hackles raised*

Writing for HotR sounds like a splendid idea. It doesn't really matter if you don't post, but it was such a good concept, and it would be a shame to abandon it.

Thank you! I think I panic because I can't write Big Plotty Stuff without doing my brain in as things are, and I used to, and so I get all weird and despise my frivolous short fanficcy bits & pieces and especially so if they are mere fanficcy bits for original stuff. I expect I shall post it somewhere, and hopefully actually to runaway_tales.
