Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] john_amend_all again:

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
  • Cyberpunk
  • Shapeshifters
  • Fantasy/Fairy Tale
  • . . . In SPACE!!
  • Apocalypse
  • Schoolfic
  • Emergency Services
  • Mirror Universe
  • Steampunk

(Previously used: Agnes Nitt, Baldrick, Black Widow, Rey and Captain America, Kermit and Miss Piggy, Rincewind, Del Trotter, Ford Prefect, Benton Fraser, FitzSimmons, the Doctor and River Song, Supergirl.)

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook and [personal profile] john_amend_all:

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.

The next time this comes up I think I’m not going to do it the john_amend_all way, because it’s really hard. I ended up just giving up on one of them. Anyway, my fandoms were:

Doctor Who
John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme
Legends of Tomorrow
Phantom 2040

The results were:

You know, I’m starting to suspect there are only, like, fifty poems on that site or something. “I have a Bird in Spring” came up twice! Still, no Robert Service for once.
daibhidc: (Sci Fi)
So I've written a fic called "Pigs in Space: Generations", which is exactly what it sounds like. I hope the six people in the world who remember Muppets Tonight enjoy it.

1) New job! After far too much kerfuffle and confusion, I started as an Admin Apprentice at the DWP today. It was mostly getting the lay of the land today, but honestly, I'm happy to be having dinner at a normal time again.

Because I had to quit the cleaning job. I was considering that it might be just possible to do both, but everyone who I mentioned this plan to (Mum, my former Jobcentre advisor, both employers) told me I was mad. I was a bit anxious about this (I've never actually left a job for reasons other than my contract ending before), but they were cool. For my last day we had chocolate cake at break, and they gave me a card. So that was nice.

2. Request for fic advice. The Wikipedia entry on speaking tubes says "Voicepipes have no switching mechanism and so, to provide multiple destinations, separate voicepipes with dedicated transit pipes have to be provided between all pairs of desired endpoints." Okay, but is there any reason why not, or is it just that nobody ever did? I have an idea for a busy Discworld office building having a central "switchboard" where all the pipes come out, and an operator connects the pipelines together, but I've a nagging feeling that if that worked, someone would have done it.
daibhidc: (Sci Fi)
Yep, it's that time again...

Oh, if anyone missed it at the time, or wants to see it again for some reason, I'm posting my 12 Drabbles of Christmas one a day in reverse order on AO3, here. Currently on Ten Lords a-Leaping.

I've also put up my Scots translation of s[livejournal.com profile] silly_swordsman's AdvenTale "Moa and the Lost Sun", here.
daibhidc: (Rincewind)
So, if anyone's interested, this links to [livejournal.com profile] john_amend_all's Unconventional Courtship Generator with Discworld characters. Have fun, and if it inspires anyone to actually write a story (as opposed to boggling and occasionally calling for brain bleach, which is all it's inspired in me so far), I'd be delighted to read it.
daibhidc: (Rincewind)
The Fish Without the Sea now up on AO3. I hope people like it. Major spoilers for The Shepherd's Crown.
daibhidc: (Animated crest)
Just checking; if I'm writing a work set shortly after and about the canonical death of a major character, does that count as Major Character Death?
daibhidc: (Doctor Who)
New story on Teaspoon, inspired by [livejournal.com profile] john_amend_all's Really Stretching UNIT Dating.

Rocktor Who and the Silurians

Just a reminder that the numbers 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 10 are still open on the Domestic Pairings meme, if anyone has any more housework they'd like me to write a fic about.
daibhidc: (Animated crest)
The four suggestions so far. Six numbers left, if anyone wants to suggest something.

Memed from [livejournal.com profile] john_amend_all:

I've got a list of 20 15 10 of my favourite pairings. All you need to do is give me a number (1-10) and a mundane household chore, like folding laundry or doing dishes, and I'll write a snippet and explain how the task would go, in-character for that pairing and universe.

(Yes, the trouble I have thinking of pairings is getting worse, especially since I decided I couldn't use any of the previous 15.)

(Set at HG Wells High, the Whoniverse Schoolfic setting outside continuity)

As the Lower Sixth trooped back to class, Zoe caught up with Jamie “So where have you and Pat been all lunchbreak?”

“Sorry, I ken we were all gonae hae lunch together, but we got distracted by goin roond the playground findin monsters.”

“Oh, you finally got a smartphone, then? I must say there are less frivolous uses for it than playing Pokemon G…” She broke off as she saw Jamie’s perplexed expression. “You haven’t got a smartphone, have you?”

“Nae idea what ye’re talkin aboot.”

“So, you and Pat were actually finding monsters?”

“Is that no’ what I said?"
