Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I wrote drabbles for all the prompts.

General thoughts: With Doctor Who characters and some of the prompts, it's difficult to distinguish an AU setting from actual canon. So, once or twice, I took the prompt as 'Divergence in a broadcast story that used this trope'. And as for '…In SPACE!!', I did it by making the characters natives of other sci-fi settings.

I think 'Harem' may have been intended to refer to the Harem Genre, rather than an actual collection of concubines. I hope so, anyway. Though since I've never watched such an anime, it doesn't actually make my task that much easier.

[personal profile] romanajo123 prompted 'Eight/Grace (or if you want, Eight&Lucie)'. I chose Eight and Lucie.

Eight and Lucie )

[personal profile] lost_spook prompted 'Ben/Polly'. Of course, some of them came out more gen than shippy, but that's an occupational hazard in works of this size.

Ben/Polly )

[livejournal.com profile] liadtbunny prompted 'Doctor/Romana'.

22nd-Dec-2014 12:12 am - Fic: Polly to the Rescue
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)

I seem to have done my usual trick of posting lines from umpteen WIPs, and then writing something that isn't any of them. When [livejournal.com profile] public_call opened their prompts to everyone, I spotted a prompt for Polly rescuing Ben and couldn't resist writing it.

Polly to the Rescue (2932 words) by JohnAmendAll
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who (1963)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Polly Wright, Ben Jackson (Doctor Who), Second Doctor
Summary:

Polly investigates a factory, and makes some interesting discoveries.

(Also available at Teaspoon)


On a different topic: a few memes back one of the characters I picked was Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective (I always think that title deserves an exclamation mark at the end). The other day I discovered by chance that one of her adventures was dramatised for the radio, and is available on iPlayer for the next few weeks: The Redhill Sisterhood.

In some respects, I found the adaptation improved on the original story. In the original, Loveday describes various clues she spotted, but since the narration never so much as mentions them, the reader has to take her word for it. The radio version does make more of an effort to plant them.

5th-Dec-2009 09:52 pm - Fic: Losing Face
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)

A couple of days ago I rashly made the comment that I'd never write Polly/Jamie. Well, this is the result. Technically it still isn't Polly/Jamie, but it looks just like it. Set in, and diverges from, Episode 2 of The Faceless Ones.

Title: Losing Face
Characters/Pairings: Michelle Leuppi/Jamie, Samantha Briggs, Polly
Rating: 12, perhaps? I'm open to suggestions.
Word count: ~2,500
Disclaimer: "Doctor Who" characters belong to the BBC.

EDIT: Moved to the Teaspoon: [ Losing Face ]
