  • 'Power of the Daleks' is supposedly being animated. Probably best to take a grain of salt with this: this claim comes from the Mirror, the same paper that once confidently predicted the Ninth Doctor would be played by Sean Bean.

  • Mark Carne, the chief of Network Rail, thinks Victorian railway architecture is of much higher quality than the 'shoddy workmanship' of the 1960s, full of asbestos and dodgy concrete (paywalled, requires a Times subscription). Mr Adamant would doubtless nod approvingly. Though, to be fair to the 1960s, Victorian railway architecture wasn't immune from jerrybuilding; after 115+ years, you'd expect to be left with the more robust bits.

    Now, if Network Rail are in the mood for sensitive treatment of heritage, and since Euston's got to be rebuilt for HS2, how about reinstating that arch?

17th-Aug-2016 08:05 pm - Fifteen Characters Meme
john_amend_all: (gia)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
  1. Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.
  2. Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"
  3. After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

2nd-Aug-2016 08:12 pm - Statistical oddity
john_amend_all: (samnjamie)
Number of fics in the Unconventional Courtship collection: 100
Number tagged as het: 43
Number of those written by me: 3

Number tagged as femslash: 9
Number of those written by me: 3

Number tagged as gen: 5
Number of those written by me: 3

Obviously it takes a certain mindset to take a romance-novel prompt and write it as gen, but I'm still surprised that over half of it is down to me.

Also: if the fest is run again I somehow don't think I'll end up writing three slash pairings, even if it would make the numbers even tidier.
30th-Jul-2016 09:39 pm - Domestic Pairings Meme
john_amend_all: (silverliz)
Reviving this meme, because it was quite fun four years ago:
I've got a list of 20 of my favourite pairings. All you need to do is give me a number (1-20) and a mundane household chore, like folding laundry or doing dishes, and I'll write a snippet and explain how the task would go, in-character for that pairing and universe.

(OK, to be honest, the 20 pairings in my list aren't necessarily my favourites, but the ones I think may generate workable prompts for this meme. So if you see Ten/Rose show up, don't judge me 😅.)

If you want to play and can't think of 20 favourite pairings, you can always try suggestions from random generators. Beware of brain breakage, though.

This is my fic for [livejournal.com profile] heroinebigbang, Round 4. I hadn't planned to publicise it anywhere until the proper post went live on the comm, but while it's stuck in the moderation queue people are already finding the fic on AO3 and Teaspoon, so I might as well come clean.

12th-Jul-2016 07:10 pm - Bring back AAL!?
john_amend_all: (peri_stetson)

There's a letter in this week's Radio Times suggesting that, it being fifty years since its first broadcast, the premise of Adam Adamant Lives! should be revived. There's a reply from Mark Gatiss, saying that he did at one time pitch a one-off revival with the original cast (called, IIRC, something like "Adam Adamant's Last Case"), and also that he thought that these days, the niche for defrosted historical adventurers was entirely occupied by Austin Powers.
Brief thoughts )

30th-Jun-2016 11:43 pm - Crossover conversations meme
john_amend_all: (ulkesh)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
Give me two characters from different fandoms you know I'm familiar with, and I'll give you a dialogue happening between the two of them. Without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed or how they could even meet each other. Just a silly crossover conversation with no backstory, for fun.
29th-Jun-2016 08:09 pm - AO3 meme

This meme is all over my flist, but I yoinked it in this form from [livejournal.com profile] pedanther. Questions and answers )

Title: Countess of Confusion, Duchess of Disorder
Author: [personal profile] john_amend_all
Fandom: Doctor Who, The Scarlet Pimpernel
Pairing/Characters: Clara Oswald fragment, Lucie Miller, Sir Percy Blakeney
Rating: PG for violence
Length: 15636 words
Summary: Seeking distraction after the death of her husband, Clarissa Pink accepts an invitation to a risqué house party. She certainly wasn't expecting an attack by a ruthless assassin — or assistance from a no-nonsense duchess by the name of Lucie Miller.
Notes: Based on summary 244: 'Darian Hunter: Duke of Desire' by Carole Mortimer.

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