Obscure & British Commentfest 2015

Welcome to the Obscure & British comment fest III! 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 comment!fest works in the same way as most comment ficathons - although all kinds of fanworks are definitely welcome here. (Fanart, icons, fanmixes, vids, whatever your creative mind can come up with.)

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

2. One prompt per post, please use format: Fandom, Character/Pairing, prompt. 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/Pairing - Rating/Warnings (if needed). There's a fills thread at the start of the post. Please also link your fill here.

4. You may fill your own prompts if you wish. Multiple fills are more than welcome. (Please don't 'claim' prompts! Simply create your fill, and come back and post it here. In the unlikely event someone else has got in first, well, everyone profits from more fannish content in a rare/medium fandom!)

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.

7. Prompt, fill, away!


Eligible Fandoms
Basically, any non-large British fandom at all! You can prompt for anything that fits, no matter how odd, old or obscure, or shiny and new - anything that's not on the below list is great.


Non-eligible fandoms
ALL non-British fandoms are ineligible (except as crossovers) and the following fandoms are British but too large and therefore ineligible for this fest (sorry):

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

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


Anything British not listed above is more than welcome here! British TV, films, books, history, comedy, RPF, plays, songs, radio dramas, folklore, mythology, anthropomorphic - it's all good, and there's absolutely no such thing as too obscure or too odd.


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 also find last year's fest here and the 2013 post here. If you want to fill a previous prompt, do feel free, although please also post to the fills thread on the current post rather than the previous editions.)


ETA: Masterlist of fills here.

Also, anon commenting is now actually on! (Sorry to anyone who tried while I only thought I had it on. It's fixed now.)

(Not really a *story*!)

"To think, Lady St Erth, that I should see you show concern over such a story! I had not thought you could be disturbed by a mere skeleton."

"If I were to find a skeleton hanging in the cupboard of my room - or any other - I suppose I must believe that the owner was a medical man or a natural philosopher of absent minded habits. I cannot conceive that the bones of a corpse would remain hanging together when all else was gone, or that even the most careless of housekeepers could notice other no sign of its presence. But I am persuaded, my lord, that you could not wish me to cause Marianne to think on such things in her condition."

"Your knowledge, as always, is all-encompassing," Gervase said, smiling at her teasingly. "I would own myself curious to know how you came by it, were it not that I would then be causing you to think on such things in your condition, and I am sure I should not."

She's one of my favourite Heyer characters, and one I tend to neglect, because I'm not all that keen on the book. So thank you for sending me back to it :)

Well, you'd certainly hope that the owner/suspect was a doctor or natural philosopher! ha, the tone is perfect. And how admirably rational and sceptical of her.
