Who Fic: The Rooftop Scene

Title: The Rooftop Scene
Characters: Jo, Eleven, Mickey, Lazarus
Rating: PG for a monster?
~1500 words.
No warnings, spoilers only for The Lazarus Experiment.

Summary: A scene from The Lazarus Experiment, with the cast swapped out for The Eleventh Doctor, Jo Grant, and Mickey Smith.

Notes: For the Doctor Swap Fic Meme. Though I'm not sure I really changed enough. It's pretty much all little character stuff.

Who Fic: Lost Art (The Written Records Remix)

remixredux09 is through the anon stage, so I'm reposting mine here.

Also, I'll edit my remixer's name into this post when I have it. (We're each individually editing our names in as we get to it, and I got to it first.)

Title: Lost Art (The Written Records Remix)
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith
Rating: G
No spoilers or warnings.
Summary: Sarah finds an old notebook she had when she traveled with the Doctor.
Notes: Remix of eponymous_rose's wonderful Lost Art. They work independently, so you could read them in either order.

Beta by dragonessa24.
Word count: 1240

back!

Been away from LJ for a couple of weeks. Popped in long enough to make iconsofrassilon posts as needed (and we need more entries this week, BTW...I'm thinking of entering something myself) but didn't read the flist.

Just spent hours reading the flist. Was at skip=120 or so when I was done. Then I went back to the top to read the new entries that came in while I was doing that. Phew.


remixthedrabble went de-anon while I was out. Here are my two remixes:

In Place Of (The Missed Learning Opportunity Remix) (Martha/Jack (implied Martha/Ten, Jack/Ten), 100 Words, no warnings);
remix of lodessa's In Place Of (same pairings, 976 words, soft R for sexings).

Cursed Chakram (The Burning Remix) (Raijin, Fujin, 100 Words, warning for character death);
remix of hamimifk's Cursed Chakram (same header, but NSFW because some other drabbles on the same page are NC-17).

Related recs: pretty much the entire Doctor Who category.


Now on to remixredux09, where I have no idea what to do about this and the time is like half way up already HELP!!! Need someone to commiserate with. Anyone here not doing Remix, yet open to hearing me whine about it? :( So doomed, so very doomed.


Question for flist, since I have at least two RPers on it: explain this RP thing to me. I have a general idea how it works, and by "general idea how it works" I mean "crack RP account I made once and posted to twice", but I don't get the specifics. I just know that I can friend some RPers to make fic pop up on my list occasionally.

Who Fic: Mystery

Title: Mystery
Characters/Pairing: The Doctor, his TARDIS
Rating: G
No spoilers.
Length: 100 words. I may not be worthy of bearing the aribtrarabble torch. Written during fic_rush Round 1 (which is still going, by the way). I should probably thank dragonessa24 for helping me settle on a name, and mention glinda_penguin, who got me thinking on the Doctor's age by writing an arbitrable about it.



For all he plays up his age when he wants to impress a companion, the Doctor does not actually think of himself as old. A millennium of life (give or take) is not enough to imply a long and mysterious past; any sane Time Lord the Doctor's age would still be on his second or third regeneration. To a Time Lord, "ancient" implies more digits.

Type-40 TARDISes were built to last, and the Doctor's was nearly dying of old age when he found her. He lies awake imagining the adventures she must have had before they met. She isn't telling.

Pirates!

I have just finished watching Pirates 3. I had four immediate thoughts.

Thought One: If I ever get married, which I don't actually want to, that's exactly how I want it to happen.

Thought Two: Here's one obvious problem with the ending.

Collapse )

Thought Three: Oh, and there's another obvious problem with the ending, that's less about Will in the future and more about Elizabeth in the less distant future. But I think I know how she'll solve it.

Collapse )

Thought Four: So they spent an entire day having sex on a beach without getting any sand on themselves or their clothing. How?

...I wonder if there's good Calypso fic out there.

So now that I've written two fics, my review of the trilogy: fun if you're very good at suspending your disbelief, with a rare three-way sword fight that manages to be worth Elizabeth's embarrassing behavior at the same time. But between an unconvincing and not at all engaging central love story, and a distinct lack of female characters with a purpose other than to give the men around them an obvious motivation, I don't think it calls to me as a new fandom I must join.

And Jack is rather like the Doctor anyway, so that's redundant.

And now I've just made myself ship Jack/Black Pearl.

Edit some months later: fixed the second fic to no longer go back and forth between tenses in a confusing manner. Told you I needed a beta.

Who Fic: Upside-Down II

No, I haven't suddenly started being able to write again. :\ This was sitting on my HDD waiting for the light of day. Er, your monitor.

When I wrote Upside-Down, I described it thusly:

Pointless happy fluff. It's very out-of-character for me, so I'm planning a sequel in which Martha and Ten angst over Gallifrey.

So I did.

Title: Upside-Down II
Characters/Pairing: Martha, Tenth Doctor
Rating: G for Everyone.
Spoilers: None. At all. Unless you were unaware that someone named Martha would be traveling with the Doctor at some point. And that Gallifrey went boom.
Length: 270 words. This goes beyond epic.

Remixes

remixthedrabble fics went up today. I got one and did three (clearly I need to write more fic in more fandoms. Or write better Who fic. One of the two). I am a big bubble of squeeful delight right now! It is so very awesome! Here are some links to the remixes (which, in turn, have links to the originals in their headers).


First, go here and read sophinisba's excellent take on Sucks To Be You. Guys, you have no idea how cool it is to see someone else interpret your stuff!


Second, since apparently they are not doing the anonymous-guess-who-it-was phase like I think the actual remixredux does, here are the ones I did:

Oops (The Highly Inconvenient Location Remix) for emerald_embers. Final Fantasy VII fic, in which emerald weapon spawns right above the Gelnika. I shake my fist at you, Squaresoft circa 1996!

Introductions (The "Biggest Family" Indeed Remix) for amaresu. Martha, Sarah, Jo, warm fuzzies (I hope).

Never Ever (The See Your Shadow Remix) for metztlimoon. Dark Ten/Rose in which Rose is dead and the Doctor is haunted.


At some point, I will put these on here/Teaspoon, and Never Knew (The Sucks to Be You Remix) will find its way into my next Giant Rec Post of Doom (now with added videogames!). And also put myself on remixy_things, because this is so cool!!!! ...But right now I am busy failing half my classes and forcing myself to get one seriously-late-like-you-would-not-believe Ten/Rose fic I owe someone finished. And certainly not making any icons or spending any time plotting out the details of a totally unrelated fic that I don't owe anybody, never mind doing crazy things like making a detailed writeup of a program I want to write. I am way more reliable than that!

Note to self: edit the tags on this post once all that's done, yes?
