1st-Oct-2015 10:49 pm - Three short multi-era fics
john_amend_all: (crichtardis)
I pinched three spare prompts from [personal profile] lost_spook's last fic meme. Here are the results:
Liz + Lucie, technical difficulties )
Lucie + Eight + Clara, road trip )
Adam Adamant + Clara Oswald, flying )

Oh, and if you've saved any Teaspoon links between 26 September and yesterday, they probably point to completely different fics now; Teaspoon had to be reverted to a backup, and though at least some people (such as me!) have re-uploaded their stories it won't have been in the same order as before.

12th-Sep-2015 12:15 am - 'Murder on the Bluebell Line'
john_amend_all: (ulkesh)

Here's a strange little thing — a documentary on the Piltdown Man hoax, narrated by Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, and filmed on the Bluebell (hence the title).

I remember watching this many years ago, almost certainly before I'd seen Hugh Fraser in anything else.

8th-Aug-2015 11:01 am - Fun with text classifiers
john_amend_all: (gia)

Following a BBC news link led me to this site, with various analysers you can use on works you've written.

I tried a few of my fics in some of the analysers, and found that I seem to be fairly consistent, whether I'm writing in my own narrative voice, as John Watson, or as Lily Carson:

  • My fics were written by a woman (~60% probability). Maybe it's because it can tell it's fanfic, and MostFanficWritersAreGirls?
  • My age category is in the 65-100 range(!).
  • My prose style is closest to Frank Baum, followed by Lewis Carroll. Except when I'm trying to write as Watson, where it's Frank Baum followed by Oscar Wilde.
  • All the fics registered as having negative, rather than positive sentiment.
  • On the other hand, my own narrative voice is usually 'happy', while John Watson and Lily Carson are both 'upset'. (This one in particular seems to be completely bonkers. My piece of Steven / Vicki fluff registers as 'upset', while my Zoë-with-dementia fic registers as 'happy'. I'm pretty sure my moods writing those two were the exact opposite!)
  • Lily and Watson have ESFP personalities; my narrative voice tends more to the ESFJ. The ESFP in particular is quite an achievement, seeing that when I actually did a Meyers-Briggs test I came out as INTJ, the exact opposite.
  • Watson and I are instinctive; Lily is exploitive.

31st-Jul-2015 06:49 pm - 15-word fic meme: The fic
john_amend_all: (shipping)

I did force myself to stay within the 15-word limit — which is tough, and sadly means those prompts demanding a deeper exploration will have to remain unexplored.

The fic )

While I'm here, I'll share a couple of Unconventional Courtship generator prompts that amused me:

28th-Jul-2015 11:44 pm - Double-drabble: Solution by Induction
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)
I started thinking how this prompt from the generator might work out:
310) Night of the Living Wed by Michele Hauf
Amy Pond and Lyta Alexander's evening turns deadly when some uninvited guests show up at their friend's party — a horde of hungry zombies. The couple is in a fight for their lives when a new, heroic side of Lyta emerges, and she vows to protect Amy no matter the cost….

It worked out like this. Solution by Induction )

27th-Jul-2015 10:05 pm - 15-word fic meme

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:

Fic/shipping meme

  1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
  2. Allow other people to leave prompts!
  3. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

(E.G. 1 + 10 - at the Beach, or 5 + 6 - happy endings)

25th-Jul-2015 12:35 am - Character Opinions Meme Variant
john_amend_all: (gia)

It's been a long time (five years!) since this meme; maybe it's worth another go-round.

Give me a character from any fandom, tv show, movie, book you know that I know and I will tell you:

a. My favorite thing about that character.
b. My least favorite thing about that character.
c. One person I would ship them with in their own verse.
d. One crossover ship for them I think would be neat.
e. One crossover universe for them I think would be even neater.
f. Their ship from hell.
g. Their song.
h. The title of their biography or autobiography.
i. The last bad dream they had.
j. How they're gonna shuffle off the mortal coil, if they haven't already.
