  1. More 500-prompts fic. This time it's from [livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny's prompt: "277. Catastrophe in the making - Second, Jamie":

    Headers below the cut )

  2. A few days ago I made a rash remark about filking The Living Daylights as a celebration of Jo Grant — Assassin for hire!

    Turns out it's not an easy song to filk, because A-Ha seemed to have a somewhat cavalier attitude to rhyme, scansion, and singing the words that all the transcripts say they should be singing. But if anyone is morbidly curious, it's under the cut )

  3. These banners are definitely addictive. Unconventional Courtship Banner )

What I memed from [personal profile] lost_spook was:
  1. Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.
  2. Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and — you guessed it — list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)
  3. I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting — make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble — it's just inspiration.
  4. Bravo! Have a cookie.
The fandoms I came up with were:
  1. Babylon 5
  2. Blackadder
  3. Doctor Who
  4. Sapphire and Steel
  5. Star Trek: The Next Generation
Then I thought... )

18th-Dec-2009 07:03 pm - Fan verse: Rose Came Back
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)
As with a genuine folk ballad, scansion is an inexact science, and the number of verses is arbitrary. Count yourselves lucky that I didn't do one for each and every one of Rose's adventures.

Here's a midi file with the tune, though I give you fair warning that it can be an earworm.

Cut for your sanity )
