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.

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
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)

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

john_amend_all: (shipping)
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).

9th-Jun-2016 11:18 pm - Recently read: "Wylder's Hand"
john_amend_all: (shipping)

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 )

john_amend_all: (angels)
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?

john_amend_all: (memepolice)
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.

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.
