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!

Adam Adamant Lives! Georgie/Adam, Congratulations & Celebrations, 298 words
“Well,” said Georgie. “I suppose it is an appropriate celebration for us, if you want to look at it that way.”

Adam couldn’t help feeling that, even after all this time, Georgina did not truly have an adequate grasp on the English language. “It is not appropriate, it’s appalling. I had a table booked for two at a particularly excellent and exclusive restaurant, a date for which we are now at least three hours overdue.”

“They say it’s the thought that counts,” said Georgie. “And it’s a very nice thought, so thank you.”

Adam wasn’t so sure it was the thought that counted. The empty table would also be attended by a delivery of flowers and serenaded by a string quartet. He only hoped the other diners would appreciate it. To be fair, they might appreciate more than his intended recipient.

“I’m not telling you about mine,” Georgie said. “It’s a surprise and I don’t want to spoil it.”

Adam gave the dank dungeon wall opposite an alarmed look. “In that case, my dear, I suppose there is some comfort to be had if we fail to escape with our lives.”

“Ooh,” said Georgie and turned her head even as he did, the two exchanging a knowing look from one chained up prisoner to another. She grinned widely. “Happy anniversary, Adam!”

“And to you, my dear Georgina.”

“And,” she added, “there’s no need to be so mean about your present. I promise you’re going to love it!”

“I remain unreassured,” said Adam. “Unless of course you took Simms’s advice on the matter.”

Georgie wrinkled up her nose. “Not likely.”

“And yet,” Adam said, “despite the alarming prospect of unwrapping your gift, I nevertheless feel it’s more than about time we extracted ourselves from these bonds, don’t you agree?”

Diary of a Provincial Lady - anything, really, though if the Provincial Lady could live past the war and into dealing with teenagers [elide the decades as you will] that would be superb.

LOL, this is somehow inevitable.
