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!

"Tarot, what happened? The smoke is still. Didn't it go off?" Micki's voice.

Tarot opened his brown eyes and looked around. "It seems frozen in place."

"How did you do it, Tarot?" said Chas with a smile.

Tarot frowned. "It wasn't me!"

"Then who?" said Micki.

"It was me."

The three turned to find two figures standing across from them framed in the doorway. The one who spoke was a tall blond woman wearing a blue dress. The other was a silent
short dark haired man dressed in a gray suit.

"It was simple human error that is all," said the man with a frown before looking at Tarot and Micki. "Why would the two of you allow your friend to blow all of you up
in the first place?"

"It would have worked," said Chas staring at Steel.

"Hardly."

"Steel," said the blond woman, touching the man's arm. Then she turned to Chas with a smile. "You simply need more training. My name is Sapphire and my companion is know
as Steel. I sensed something was wrong when we went passed this building as we were exploring this town. We entered and found the six of you before--"

"The six - then the others- " asked Tarot.

"Frozen and alive for now," said Steel. "And you are--"

"My name is Tarot and my friends are Micki and Chas. Thank you for saving us."

"You are not safe just yet. Sapphire can only hold time back for so long. Lead!"

A booming laugh was heard from the smoke. "Yes, Steel!"

"Do you and Silver have them?"

"Of course, Steel!" Then the smoke was cut as a tall stout black man came through the smoke holding two forms in his arms. Behind him came a shorter redheaded man in a silver suit
holding another form in his arms.

"Hold on, is the smoke supposed to shimmer like that?" asked Micki, pointing.

"Sapphire, how long?" asked Steel.

"Only a minute or two more."

Steel nodded. "Silver and Lead, the two of you go first. Sapphire, you take Chas and Micki next. Tarot, you will follow me." They ran out the room and building following Steel's orders. As Tarot and Steel left the building, a loud boom was heard as all the windows broke and huge bursts of
smoke came out.

"Just in time," said Silver.

"Thank you again," said Tarot.

"We shall be going now," said Sapphire. "The three others shall come with us. They will be safer."

"Where?" asked Micki.

"To where we come from," said Lead.

said a voice in their heads.

Sapphire and Steel stared and saw Tarot smiling. (You possess telepathic thought?) thought Steel.

<Perhaps one day I can return the favor> said a voice in their heads.

Sapphire and Steel stared and saw Tarot smiling. (You possess telepathic thought?) thought Steel.

<One of my many talents.>

(Perhaps.) thought Sapphire. "Goodbye," she said as the seven of them disappeared, leaving the three left to go back to their car.

Re: Human Error (Ace of Wands/Sapphire & Steel crossover, Part 2
Because I could not post it in its entirety, I
had to split in two parts.

Human Error, Part 2

Sapphire and Steel stared at the open window filled with endless stars. Sapphire turned to Steel
and said "They have left us alone. Do you believe that Silver will come to help us?"

"If he does, will he not be trapped with us?" said Steel.

"Then who do you suggest instead? Lead? Jet? or someone else?"

"What about me? Will I do?" said a new voice.

They turned to see a tall man dressed all in black smiling and standing behind them.

Sapphire smiled. "Tarot!"

Tarot smiled back.

Sapphire smiled. "Tarot!"

Tarot smiled back. <It is good to see you two again. Silver sent me. He said this was
a trap I believe.>

(A trap created by beings known as Transenics(sp - find right spelling). They are like this,
but cannot exist where there is life) said Sapphire

"You should not have come," said Steel with a frown.

Tarot grinned. "It is merely a challenge. Never say impossible in front of a magician!"

"You have aged with gray streaks in your dark hair and lines upon your face," said Sapphire.

"Not as handsome as I used to be. I have a family now and have grown wiser over the years."

"Then you should not have come," said Steel.

Tarot shook his head. "I had a debt to pay. Years ago, the two of you along with Lead and Silver saved six lives in one day. Why would I not come?"

"Who are you?"

The three turned to find a tall man in black, smoking a cigarette. "You do not belong here, human,"
he said, staring at Tarot. "This is their trap, not yours, created by us. Do you desire death?"

"Do you wish to play a game? If you win, then we are yours. If not, you let us all go," said Tarot.

"Very well. I agree to your terms," said the man.

<Are you sure about this? You have so much to lose.> Steel's voice.

Tarot looked at him. (So do the two of you.) Then he said aloud. "Observe. Can you tell me which window is the right one?"

"What have you done? There are now four windows instead of one!"

Tarot folded his hands. "Someone who is more than your average human. Now, choose."

Then he stared at Steel. (Go now. For the door.)

Steel frowned looking behind him. <What door? There is no door.>

(Can he hear our thoughts?)

Sapphire then spoke <I do not believe so. However you cannot be too careful.>

(The door has been revealed to you. Open it and go through it. Silver is on the other side waiting)

Then Steel turned back once again. <There is a door! There was not one before!>

Tarot smiled. (Simple misdirection and a bit of magic to hide it from view. You believe it wasn't there so it was not.)

<Magic. There is no such thing.> Steel's words.

(No such thing? Oh, but there is. Come, follow me.) thought Tarot opening the door as Steel and Sapphire followed him though a black gap.

<What about him? He will know that we are gone.> Steel.

Tarot shook his head. (I have made an illusion of the three of us. Hopefully, it will last after we go through the end of this portal.)

Then the end of the portal opened and revealed a tall redheaded man in a silver suit.

"Hello, Silver!" said Sapphire.

"Tarot, you got them!" said Silver as they emerged from the opening.
"Sapphire! Steel! It is good to see you again!"

"I understand that you are responsible for our rescue," said Steel.

Silver nodded. "I got Tarot and together we came up with the plan. I would send him through a portal of his construction and hopefully he could get you two out."

"If not, we would still be trapped there," said Sapphire.

"Where will you go now, Tarot?" asked Steel.

Tarot smiled. "Back to my family."

"May we escort you there and meet them?" asked Sapphire.

"Of course," Tarot said as the four linked hands and vanished. . .

Another Ace of Wands crossover
What if Harry Potter was raised by someone else?
(I know that this has been done several times)
What if Tarot raised Harry? How would have
Harry been as a wizard?
