The Casefiles of Mr J G Reeder, by Edgar Wallace

Having been introduced to Mr Reeder by [personal profile] lost_spook's picspam of a couple of years ago, my interest was piqued when I caught sight of this book. It comprises three individual works:

  • Room 13
  • The Mind of Mr J G Reeder
  • Terror Keep

(I've subsequently found that all the stories are out of copyright in Australia, and hence can be downloaded).
Thoughts (spoiler-lite) )

On a different topic, and since I was pinching elements of Moondial for fic the other day: The BBC have finally got round to reissuing the DVD.

(It includes an excellent example of TemptingFate, when Minty muses that her aunt's new guest will "probably [be] the most harmless old duck in the world".
Well, see for yourself. )

john_amend_all: (memepolice)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook, a shippy variant of the annual character opinions meme:
Give me a character from a fandom I know and I'll tell you:

  7. My fem/slash ship:
  8. My OTP:
  9. My OT3:
  10. My cross over ship:

Some questions from previous iterations of this meme that I may also feel like answering:

  1. Something about them I consider true, even though it's only my head canon/fanon.
  2. Do you love/hate/don’t feel strongly about this character?
  3. What’s your favorite trait of this character?
  4. What’s your favorite moment/event involving this character?
  5. If you could have one power/attribute/etc. of this character, what would it be?
  6. Prior to reading this question, have you ever pictured this character naked?
  7. When did you fall in love/hate with this character? If you don’t have any strong feelings toward them, why not?

Previous answers can be found under the Character Opinions Meme tag, covering Two, Jamie, Polly, Sam, Zoë, Vicki, Steel and Peri.

15th-Mar-2015 07:40 pm - Five Sentence Fic Meme

Memed from [ profile] luckweaver:
Comment me a sentence and a ship and I’ll write the next five.

(I presume this means the next five sentences, not the next five ships 😏 )

5th-Mar-2015 09:49 pm - Dream fics meme
john_amend_all: (angels)
Memed from [ profile] liadtbunny and [personal profile] lost_spook:
If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks (if applicable)... what's your ideal fic from me?

This is a summary that isn't (yet) in the generator:
At eighteen, Macy Ward had turned to Fisher Yates for a night of comfort before he left for the military. Now he’s back in town and unaware that Macy’s troubled son is the result of that unforgettable night – until the boy mysteriously disappears…

What caught my eye about it? Well, Fisher-Yates is a well-known algorithm to shuffle a list. I use it in a lot of my random generators (though, as it happens, not the Unconventional Courtship generator). I wonder if it's a deliberate reference to the algorithm?

Oh, and while I'm here... Get your brain bleach ready )
