This is a list of all my completed fic, in one easy to find place. I'll try to remember to update it as I finish WIPs, but I make no promises. *g* Really long list under the cut....Collapse )

It is official; I love Capaldi's Doctor and I'm reasonably certain I'm going to love series eight :)

Just watched Winter Soldier again (still love it btw) and there's one question that's been bugging me since my second viewing - where is Clint while all this is going on??

Oh captain, my captain...

The world has lost a true original.

RIP Robin Williams.

Warning, this post contains angst and possibly politics.

Today is the centenary of the outbreak of The First World War. It has been all over the news here, as it should be, and it's caused me to stop and reflect.

I read once that although it was known as the War to End All Wars, there have been more armed conflicts since 1918 than the three centuries preceding.

In the Middle East people are dying from a political mess partly brought about by the land grab after WW1 and in many ways the shadow of the last century hangs over us all.

World peace seems a distant goal right now.

Please, mark today. Mourn all those who gave their lives in that terrible war, whether in service to their country or bystander and no matter which flag they died under.

They were all human. Everyone reading this is human. We should try to focus on that, remember what we have in common.

Remember the fallen. Hope for peace.

Most excellent birthday wishes to the hoopiest frood I know, aeron_lanart. She mentioned in a recent post she'd like to see more Dresden/Methos, so I wrote some. Rated 15 to be on the safe side, but as usual I can't write sex for toffee so no actual sex occurs during the fic.

Happy Birthday Al xxxx

Nothing you recognise is mine.

Comment here if you want to play, and I will give you three-six couples that I associate with you, and you make an entry in your journal talking about those couples and fics that you wish the universe would write for you.

I commented on aeron_lanart and she gave me these:


This one is obvious, and pretty canonical given the Tracy/Hepburn sparring and flirting we saw on screen. I love writing Amanda, I loved Nick, and there isn't enough Highlander The Raven fic out there. Plus, given how the show ended, there is enormous freedom to do whatever I want.

Nick is a good fit for Amanda, he knows exactly who she is and has no expectations but he still loves her enough to forgive her shooting him (even if it did take a decade). Amanda never meant to fall in love, with a cop of all people, but she has. Will it last? Ask her in the morning. But she definitely wants to keep that pretty head on his shoulders as long as possible.

It isn't twoo wuv, that isn't who either of them are. It's... complicated.

Amanda/Nikolai Dante

This one just made so much sense to me - Nikolai is a male Amanda. Bastard son of a Romanov and a pirate in an alternate future where communism never happened, he's a thief, a lover, and if all else fails, he's pretty handy with a blade. Because, in my head canon Amanda taught him all he knows :)

They flirt, they fight, they f...ind solace in each other's embrace and then, in the morning, Amanda dupes him and makes away with the jewels. That sums up their relationship really.

Jack/Ianto (immie Ianto at that)

I don't even really think of Jack/Ianto as a "ship" because it's canon. So in my mind, there could never be anything else. I haven't really written much since CoE (I made Ianto immortal two months before that) but I do have what happened to them planned out in my head. They drift in and out of each other's lives, although together more than apart. Jack cares for Ianto more than he wanted to, but the crafty Welshman dug himself deep under Jack's skin. In my mind, Jack is the needy one, not Ianto as some writers portray it. Jack is broken, and he has a hard time trusting and he has serious abandonment issues (his family, the Doctor and Rose) but Ianto is Immortal and he is loyal to a fault. He may get annoyed with Jack and disappear to parts unknown, but Jack feels safe that he will come back, sooner or later, and he knows if he goes away Ianto will be waiting when he returns.

I just realised that all three of these relationships are outwardly casual. True, deep feelings between them, but the participants come and go, see other people, but always there is tie that draws them back to each other when it matters. I guess that is the nature of immortal couples (except Robert&Gina). Let's face it, most mortals don't stay together forever so immortals certainly wouldn't. Also my shipping is characterised by a lot of badinage. I said badinage, stop it. ;)

A very fine actor and by all accounts a lovely man. Such sad news. I think I'll watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit this weekend.
