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... )

383) Hot on Her Tail - Saskia Walker
It wasn’t the knee-high black leather boots or the skintight leather hotpants that grabbed her attention, but the padlocked slave collar she was wearing around her neck.
As she stepped out of the stolen vehicle she’d been chasing, Officer Nyssa of Traken was thunderstruck by the alluring redhead in the provocative attire. Upon further investigation, it soon became clear that despite appearances, Tegan Jovanka was not some crazy car thief dressed like a bondage slave from a porn movie. She was, in fact, the victim in some underhanded maneuvering by her vindictive ex.
Now it was up to Nyssa to help her out of this mess. But the electric attraction that blazed between them soon culminated in a night of explosive passion that would change Nyssa’s life forever.

Right, who's been showing the generator this picture?

I don't seem to be able to write anything of use at the moment. Which is a pity, because
466) THE QUEEN'S LADY by Shannon Drake
By trying to help the reckless, defiant Mary Queen of Scots take her rightful place on the throne, Lady Victoria Waterfield is at perilous odds with Jamie McCrimmon, a laird accomplished in both passion and affairs of state.
The more Victoria challenges his intentions, the less he can resist the desire igniting between them. But will Victoria's last daring gamble lead her to the ultimate betrayal - or a destiny greater than she could ever imagine?

sounds like it could have legs as a genuine Two-era historical.
Sarah and Harry seem to suit the generator quite well )

This is a summary that isn't (yet) in the generator:
SOLDIER'S SECRET CHILD by Caridad Piñeiro
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 )
