THIS!!! (it's an oldie, but a goodie.)

The fifth annual Life on Mars Ficathon sign-up has been posted at [livejournal.com profile] lifein1973. The more, the merrier (although unless Drayce gets in there first, I'm sorely tempted to write the P&P pastiche. Perhaps I should go with Jane Eyre instead. Hmm.)

Go. Sign Up.

*g*

There was so much garlic in the aioli at lunch, the roof of my mouth now stings...

An anonymouse is writing a reply to the Anonymous Pornfest II (The Porn Bites Back), which is a bit bizarre as it's nearly a year ago since we last ran one.

Even more bizarrely, it's an answer to the dub!con Sam/Harry Woolfe prompt.

Fic is here and isn't half-bad. Pity that the author isn't going to get much credit. I've left a note to ask whether the anonymouse wishes to repost/have it reposted/pointered on [livejournal.com profile] lifein1973, fingers crossed (s)he replies!

Of course, this has got me thinking. It's been a year since the last one - how do folk fancy another anon pornfest???

If so, shall we open it up for A2A as well? Or shall we not do that?

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] darthfi: are you happy for the joint fic journal to be used again to this end?

In fact, let's be democratic.

POLL!

[Poll #1573862]

Okay, I'm an idiot. I managed to miss out the Ashes question.

[Poll #1573870]

ETA: Of course, if it turns out anonymouse is one of you lot, posting on the meme in order to prompt me into starting up this year's... then you're a sneaky little so-and-so. And that's probably why we're friends. *G*
m31andy: (Evil!Chris)
So, for once, I know where a meme actually started! From [livejournal.com profile] draycevixen who thought it would be more interesting to list all the situations the lads are stuck in due to a case of rather serious writer's block.

My WIP folder seems to be quite large )

I'm slightly disturbed by some of the pairings on this list - my OTPs are very thin on the ground there. (That possibly explains why they're all still WIPS!
m31andy: (Ultraviolet)
It is not a good idea to start thinking about how to manipulate time and space just so you can write Simm!Character/Davenport!Character slash. No matter how much you think Sam Tyler would 'deserve' Michael Colefield. (and vice versa...)

This goes doubly when you're also secretly thinking "what's the worst thing I can think of to do to Sam?"

(With many 'thanks' to [livejournal.com profile] mousedemon for setting me on this path of utter insanity. I'll get back to the pros fic of doom now, shall I? (I'm pretty sure the supernatural verson of CI5 has been done, right?))
m31andy: (Doyle - Neikirk)
[livejournal.com profile] fiandyfic has put up their answers to the latest challenge here.

Give us the title of a story we've never written, and feedback telling us what you liked best about it, and we will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made us want to write it, the biggest problem we had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that we wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that we want readers to know.

If you fancy challenging us, please comment on the original post and we'll get back to you.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] darthfi has been slightly disturbed by the latest accidental invokation of Rule 34* and wishes to know if there's a rule for "if it's been written, there's a Professionals crossover with it". Any suggestions / rebuttals?

m31andy: (Zombie!Sam)
So [livejournal.com profile] zombie_fest, which you may have seen pimped on your friendslist in the last couple of days, has now opened its doors for prompts and fic/art/vid. Almost a month of multifandom zombies!

If any of you good folk want to play along, hie along to here, post-haste. There's only 28 days left!

Also, if you post any LoM fic, either post a link over at [livejournal.com profile] zomromcomlomcom so I can pick it up in the Zom-Rom-Com-LoM-Comm Zombie Masterlist or drop me a line.

([livejournal.com profile] draycevixen, [livejournal.com profile] saintvic, [livejournal.com profile] mikes_grrl - has this been mentioned over at [livejournal.com profile] teaandswissroll? Or are we likely to get even more shot if we introduce zombie!Bodie as the perfect foil for elf!Doyle???)
m31andy: (cute!Sam)
Meme nicked from [livejournal.com profile] draycevixen (and, through her, [livejournal.com profile] fawsley):

List the first lines of your last 20 stories. See if you find any patterns.

Twenty first lines )

I'm not sure if I can see any patterns in that lot. I seem to either write short, pithy openings or Bulwer-Litton entry grade ramblings. I'm also quite surprised there's so many 'present tense' fics on the list. (And one in first person. Shocking!) It's in reverse order, so you can see the gradual change from Life on Mars to Pros. The rather depressing thing about this little list is that it spans more than a year. Hmm. Definitely slowing down in my old age.

(Though fic is getting longer, I suppose. *eyes Pros Fic of Doom balefully*)

To that end, then. First five prompts gets a ficlet (or possibly more). Y'all know what fandoms I dabble in, so give me one and I'll get creative.

Oh, and in related news, the fourth annual Life on Mars Ficathon is open for sign-ups. Seriously, this is definitely one where 'the more, the merrier' is an apposite phrase. (I've also got a sneaking feeling that there will be more Sam/Sam fics before the end of the ficathon this year as well!!!)

Go, sign up!
m31andy: (Read)
For some reason, my friendslist seems to be overflowing with good fic (or recs of good fic), so here are the ones I've clicked the links on today.

Multifandom Fic Recs )

In other news, I went to Brighton at the weekend (shocker, I know!) I was going to write all about it, but [livejournal.com profile] guvngladys seem to have written much better than I was going to!!!
m31andy: (Default)
Comment to this entry and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. You must then update your journal and answer the following questions:


  1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?

  2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?

  3. Favourite episodes/books/movies/etc.?

  4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?

  5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?


From [livejournal.com profile] kelemvor, who gave me:
"Life on Mars"
"Man From U.N.C.L.E."
"The Professionals"

My answers, under the cut. Possible spoilers )Anyone want to play?

In completely other news, pale greenhouse lettuce can make even the best salads look unsavoury, but a couple of days under weak ultraviolet light brings the colour back. One for the gardeners out there, I feel. Although, there *are* two alternatives. 1. Don't get so hung up on your pale lettuce or 2. Grow the things outdoors and eat them in season. Then they get all the ultraviolet radiation they need...

Does anyone know if the coloured water celery trick works for lettuce? That would be cool. Blue lettuce and red celery. cool.
m31andy: (cute!Sam)
So yesterday was both the gig at the We Make Craft Fair and also the annual Professionals Christmas meet-up. The gig went well enough, and the meet-up was much fun. I finally got to put some faces to names (meeting the most wonderful [livejournal.com profile] byslantedlight and also the incredibly cool [livejournal.com profile] erushi). As is turning out to be inevitable, [livejournal.com profile] erushi and I ended up talking to a lovely girl about Life on Mars and promised to write down some recs on my journal for her.

So, especially for [livejournal.com profile] foxcat74, I would love to see your recs for someone who has seen the first series only, but doesn't mind spoilers, is looking for nice, sweet* slash featuring Gene, or, you know, anything else that she might like in that vein. Especially anything on mystical origins of Gene (am a little stumped there). Under the cut is mine and [livejournal.com profile] erushi's first stab at this, but pretty, pretty please add to this if you can.

Here Be Life on Mars Recs )

* Please note, in this context, sweet means no rent-boys, evil!Chris, Stockholm Syndrome, serial killers or character death. There's plenty of time for indoctrination later…
m31andy: (psycho!Sam)
Well, December has been a busy month for me. Not only the end of the Hookerverse, but also my 15 minutes of fame over on [livejournal.com profile] crack_van. Here, therefore, is a link to all my recs.

Crack Van Life on Mars Rec List )

Well, that's about it for me for 2007. And I'm glad the year is almost over. It's not been one of the best so far. Roll on 2008. I've now got to get ready to bomb off down to Canterbury for a rocking party.

Have a Happy New Year to you all, and I'll see you on the other side of midnight…
m31andy: (evil!sam)
Well, I keep misplacing really good fan-fic, so I thought I would put them all down on a list. Please comment below if you've got any recs that I've missed so far (and I might add them...) This will probably form the basis of my [livejournal.com profile] crack_van recs if/when I finally get asked to drive the van for Life on Mars.

Note: These recs contain a few words describing what I like about the fics. There'll be spoilers for all episodes, ESPECIALLY the final episode.

Here be Fic Recs )

Actually, thinking about it, I think I've missed out loads, but it's lunchtime, I'm due some more ibuprofen when I can get a sandwich (and by gods, I know it), so I'll have another think after lunch.
m31andy: (Dancing Hamster)
"My name is Richard Hammond. I had an accident, and I woke up in 1973. Am I mad, in a coma, or back in time? Whatever's happened, it's like I've landed on a different planet. Now, maybe if I can work out the reason, I can get home."

Oh god. I really am going to write this, aren't I?

It works really well, actually. Top Gear started in 1972 as a Road Safety programme. With Angela Rippon. The Hamster was born in 1969 and that is the estimated year of birth for Sam.

I'm so going to hell.

ETA: Actually, I got my dates wrong. Top Gear started in 1977. However, That's Life did start in 1973, which was involved in the wearing of seat-belts. Ooooh. No. Hammond as one of Esther's Nancies. This is getting scary.
m31andy: (Kissy)
These are for [livejournal.com profile] androctonus, as she had her PC stolen and she lost all her links. I'll see if I can find some more links later.

If anyone else wants to join in, comment with your link below, and I'll add it. Note the categories (SG-1, Harry Potter, Jeeves and Wooster, CSI, Doctor Who - All slash, plus other non-slash and anything else you can think of!)

Here be Fics )

Is this enough to be going on with?
