john_amend_all: (peri_stetson)

Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I wrote drabbles for all the prompts.

General thoughts: With Doctor Who characters and some of the prompts, it's difficult to distinguish an AU setting from actual canon. So, once or twice, I took the prompt as 'Divergence in a broadcast story that used this trope'. And as for '…In SPACE!!', I did it by making the characters natives of other sci-fi settings.

I think 'Harem' may have been intended to refer to the Harem Genre, rather than an actual collection of concubines. I hope so, anyway. Though since I've never watched such an anime, it doesn't actually make my task that much easier.

[personal profile] romanajo123 prompted 'Eight/Grace (or if you want, Eight&Lucie)'. I chose Eight and Lucie.

Eight and Lucie )

[personal profile] lost_spook prompted 'Ben/Polly'. Of course, some of them came out more gen than shippy, but that's an occupational hazard in works of this size.

[livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny prompted 'Doctor/Romana'.

Not the Doctor Who episode, but the Escher lithograph that inspired it — one of many in this exhibition. The exhibition's been so popular that the gallery's had to extend its opening times.

It was very interesting to see the development of his style, and appreciate the amount of fine detail his art contains. The behind-the-scenes bits were also enlightening — there was a plate for his mezzotint 'Eye', for instance, with a line gouged across it to make sure it wasn't used to make any more of them. And a review of his work in (IIRC) Mad Magazine, where he's highlighted sections and put question marks against them, with implication being he was wondering what on earth these people were on about.

So what was I supposed to do when tor.com started posting romance novel summaries?

Couldn't resist.

457) The Winds of Winter by Sandra Field
She’d had so much–now she had nothing.
Daenerys Targaryen didn’t dwell on it, but the pain was still with her – the double-edged pain of grief and rejection.
It had greatly altered her; Daenerys barely resembled the girl who four years earlier had left her husband, Stannis Baratheon. He probably wouldn’t even recognize her – especially with another name.
Daenerys made up her mind. She just had to go to his house to discover if what she suspected was true….
(Since everyone in Game of Thrones is related to everyone else and it's got hundreds of characters, it would be better if I added a proper coded cast list rather than just a few user-defined characters. But that's a project for another day).
