(Despite the original summary it came out pretty much gen. Writing debaucheries is obviously not my forte).

Wylder's Hand by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Before reading Wylder's Hand, the only acquaintance I had with it was from the references to it in Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey stories. I'd come away with the impression that it was a supernatural story of some kind. Well, it (probably) isn't. It's more of a Gothic thriller. Hopefully free of major spoilers )

i) A sign on a shelf reading 'General + Outsize Royalty'. That'll be Henry VIII and George IV, then.

ii) Various romance novels, whose titles I noted pursuant to later googling them and adding the summaries to the generator. I decided to start with The Case of the Accidental Heiress. I put it in the generator, and it went all psychic on me straight away.

475) The Case of the Accidental Heiress by Victoria Pade

The Case: An accidental heir.

The Client: the Second Doctor was dead. At least, that's what everyone told him. But as he pursed his lips and moved his muscles, he knew he was very much alive. . . And in a heap of trouble!

The Detective: Sensuous, long-legged Polly Wright had rescued many a swain in distress. But this new client. . . Despite his enormous inheritance and his gorgeous body, he was simply nuts - or about to pull off an incredible scam! How could the Second Doctor expect her to believe that he had been switched - heart and soul into another man's body?

Like [personal profile] lost_spook, I shouldn't be getting distracted — in my case, it's my UC fic that I need to do something about, given the rapidly approaching posting date. But anyway...

Comment with a number, and a pairing/two or more characters, and I'll try to write you a ficlet or drabble.

(Unabridged prompt list from here).

I had a late request on Teaspoon from ShyWhovian for a Six and Peri set.

What else could I do? )

For those who like old-style telephones and live in the UK, I can recommend half an hour of James May reassembling one.

I've had the lid off a couple of dial telephones to fit conversion kits for the modern plug-and-socket system, but I certainly didn't reduce them to their component parts. A lot of it was quite familiar, though.

Unconventional Courtship is back!

So I hope everyone who's able is going to sign up and compose some suitably cracky fic. Or pimp it on tumblr. Or make some suitable / unsuitable banners. Or just generate some amusing prompts...

[ profile] daibhid_c prompted for none other than Charles Prentiss. I found him generally inseperable from Martin McCabe...

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.

Ben/Polly )

[ profile] liadtbunny prompted 'Doctor/Romana'.

Doctor / Romana )
