For only the second time, one of my works has been podficced! It was Vox et Praeterea Mysteria, of course; the fandom at large seems to have decided that that's going to be my magnum opus. So if you want to hear how ocean_of_ink coped with my prose, here it is.


I have managed to get the next chapter of Zoë and Isobel's exploits on the Sussex coast knocked into some sort of shape:

12th-Aug-2014 09:50 pm - Fic: One Day in Rome
john_amend_all: (shipping)

One iteration of the 12 Characters meme asked me to write a summary for a Vicki / Clara fic. This is the fic that grew from that summary.

Title: One Day in Rome
Author: [personal profile] john_amend_all
Characters / Pairings: Clara / Vicki
Rating: Teen
Word count: 3143
Disclaimer: "Doctor Who" characters belong to the BBC.
Author's notes: The Clara / Vicki pairing was suggested by a random generator. The rest is entirely my fault.
Summary: In Nero's palace, there are spies and plots on every side. In order to protect the Doctor, Vicki finds herself allying with a slave-girl who seems to know more than she should.

This Fabulous Investigation is one of the works in progress that I posted a snippet of last November. This week it took hold of my mind and wouldn't let go. I'll be posting it in instalments, though I'm not sure yet what the frequency of updates will be.

2nd-Aug-2014 07:32 pm - 12 Characters Meme: New Questions
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)
Since [personal profile] lost_spook rewrote the questions, I gave them the usual JavaScript generator treatment, and fed some names into the resulting page. So, usual rules:
Write a list of 12 characters from any fandoms. Then answer the questions under the cut. (Don't look at the questions before you make your list!)

The characters, as randomly shuffled by the generator, are:

  1. Inspector Lewis (Lewis)
  2. Penelope Pitstop (Wacky Races)
  3. Kosh Naranek (Babylon 5)
  4. Herr Flick of the Gestapo ('Allo 'Allo!)
  5. Susan Ivanova (Babylon 5)
  6. Samantha Briggs (Doctor Who)
  7. Richard Sharpe (Sharpe books & TV series)
  8. Galahad Threepwood (Blandings books, Wodehouse)
  9. Lord Fear (Knightmare)
  10. Magrat Garlick (Discworld books, Pratchett)
  11. Amy Pond (Doctor Who)
  12. Nyota Uhura (Star Trek)
And off we go again )
22nd-Jul-2014 09:08 pm - 12 Characters Meme: Single Fandom
john_amend_all: (memepolice)

[personal profile] lost_spook suggested re-running the meme, with characters from a single fandom, so I picked Doctor Who. I also adopted [personal profile] justice_turtle's suggestion to shuffle the characters before feeding them into the questions.

Of course, since I was getting bored with typing characters' names into square brackets, and I already have quite the collection of shuffle-and-substitute JavaScript... it was the work of a moment to combine a few bits and pieces and come up with a couple of generator pages.

Now back to the meme. The characters and ordering the generator picked were:

  1. Polly
  2. Harry
  3. Vicki
  4. Fourth Doctor
  5. Ian
  6. Seventh Doctor
  7. Steven
  8. Ace
  9. Dodo
  10. Clara
  11. Peri
  12. Jack
The questions and answers are: ) Some other questions )

12th-Jul-2014 09:23 pm - Meme: Fic I'd Never Write

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.
11th-Jul-2014 08:22 pm - WIP meme: Works Not In Progress
john_amend_all: (angels)

[personal profile] lost_spook revived the WIP meme the other day. I posted something similar recently as part of the 30 Days meme, so I thought I'd do something different: post fragments of abandoned works that I don't think will ever be finished.

For the most part, I'll leave the context to be guessed.

Here goes. )

From time to time, as I've transcribed romance novel summaries into the generator, I've come across ones which merited a brief comment. For example, there's Wedding Cake Wishes by Dana Corbit: Under the cut )

When the generator came up with this prompt, I couldn't resist writing it:
179) The Vanishing by Jana DeLeon
Certain death awaits any outsider who enters Cache, a mythical city said to disappear when intruders threaten. But P.I. Dalek Sec won't let the Cajun superstition stop him from going there. He'll do anything to help sexy Jo Grant and close this missing person's case, even admit how attracted he is to his client. But as their investigation deepens, Sec finds himself protecting Jo from the inexplicable terrors of the bayou. This includes the specter taunting them with voodoo — and a shotgun. It seems they may have come too close to Cache and its eerie secrets — and dangerously close to each other.
