24th-Jul-2017 12:16 am - Christmas special trailer

The trailer for the 2017 DW Christmas special can be found here or here. Thoughts on the trailer )

In other news: I recently discovered that a romance novel author asked P. G. Wodehouse if they could use the name Rosie M. Banks. He said yes. I'm tempted to add the summary to the Generator, perhaps with an explanatory note.

10th-Jul-2017 11:35 pm - UC generator update
john_amend_all: (gia)

I've done a minor update to the Unconventional Courtship generator, to allow you to select fandoms individually. There's now a tickbox beside each fandom — if you click on the fandom name it will select only that fandom, as before, but if you click on the tickboxes you can toggle which fandoms are included. So if (for example) you just want the characters from B5 and B7 with no intervention from Miss Austen, that should now be possible.

Let me know if you find any problems — it's quite possible I've introduced some heinous error. The encoding method I've used also means the generator will be limited to 31 fandoms maximum, though we're nowhere near that limit yet. Of course, I couldn't resist testing it... )

[personal profile] lost_spook also suggested I might like to explain what I thought I was doing with Recruit.

4th-Jul-2017 07:09 pm - PSA: Rehost images on Photobucket
john_amend_all: (gia)

Photobucket appear to be shutting down hotlinking (unless you pay a three-figure annual fee).

At the time of writing, this doesn't seem to have affected images of mine hosted on PB (mainly Unconventional Courtship banners), but for those with images on PB it may be as well to start looking for alternative hosting.

1st-Jul-2017 12:08 am - Fic commentary meme
john_amend_all: (portal)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:
Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

(You can find ones I've done previously under the commentary tag).

15th-Jun-2017 10:52 pm - Once more, with tags
john_amend_all: (ulkesh)

I'm obviously far too obscure for my own good. The fandom was actually Babylon Five (though there's also a nod to The Man Who Was Thursday). Here are the headers:

Title: Recruit
Author: [personal profile] john_amend_all
Fandom: Babylon Five
Characters: OCs, Ulkesh Naranek
Rating: All ages
Word count: ~1900
Disclaimer: Ulkesh was created by J. Michael Straczynski.
Summary: In Victorian London, a working girl finds she's on the side of the angels.

john_amend_all: (wizard)

This isn't any of my WIPs, but it wanted to be written.

Also, I'm not including headers or tags, because it'd be interesting to know at what point you recognised the fandom / characters (if you did).

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] liadtbunny, a WIP meme. Though given the amount of writing I've done in the past five months, the possibility of any of these seeing the light of day seems remote:
