Having done Hamish and Dougal IN SPACE, I was amused to find that ISIHAC got there first.
26th-Sep-2017 12:25 pm - AU meme: Zoe / Isobel
john_amend_all: (zoebel)

No-one asked me for a Zoë / Isobel drabble set, but I wrote one for my own amusement.

Teen, probably )

john_amend_all: (ulkesh)

[personal profile] daibhidc prompted me for Hamish and Dougal. Several of the other characters from their series decided to come along for the ride.

john_amend_all: (wiztardis)

This is the third (and, to date, final) set of drabbles. [personal profile] liadtbunny gave me the choice of the Monk, or Three & Jo. And having thought of how Three and Jo would handle the Apocalypse, I knew what I'd have to write.

Here's the second set of drabbles; [personal profile] lost_spook prompted for Adam / Georgina. Despite my best efforts, they came out more gen than shippy.

6th-Sep-2017 09:50 pm - AU meme, iteration 2.0
john_amend_all: (peri_stetson)

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook:

Give me a character/pairing and I will write snippets of ten different alternate universes for it. One line, ten lines, a ficlet if you're lucky.
  • Wild West
  • Coffee Shop
  • Shapeshifters
  • Fantasy/Fairy Tale
  • . . . In SPACE!!
  • Apocalypse
  • Schoolfic
  • Police/Firefighters/Medical/any other emergency service I can think of
  • Supernatural
  • Regency

Retreads from the previous iteration are deprecated. So absent a really compelling pairing, let's omit Eight, Lucie, Four, Romana, Ben, Polly, Jamie, Sam, Seven, Ace, Six, Peri, Charles Prentiss and Martin McCabe.

26th-Aug-2017 02:07 pm - Tropes meme: The ficlets
john_amend_all: (wiztardis)

[personal profile] romanajo123 asked for The Doctor and Romana, accidental-baby-acquisition

I used Romana I )

[personal profile] lost_spook gave me a choice, and I picked forced to share a bed - Adam/Georgie

This can only end well )

Memed from [personal profile] romanajo123:
Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing/moresome and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write not!fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write). List below the cut )
28th-Jul-2017 11:25 pm - Poetry meme
john_amend_all: (memepolice)
Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook...
  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.
Actually, I had the cookie first. Doing this meme the way I do it, I need all the blood sugar I can get... )
24th-Jul-2017 12:16 am - Christmas special trailer
john_amend_all: (crichtardis)
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... )

4th-Jul-2017 11:09 pm - Fic commentary: Recruit
john_amend_all: (ulkesh)

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

We are all Kosh... )
