curuchamion: First Doctor inside a Dalek, from The Space Museum (One in a Dalek)
Okay. So the ever-awesome InfiniteViking (I would link your journal, honest, but I haven't gotten used to the way crossposting b0rks up all my LJ code) has this meme that is the Drabbles IN SPAAAAACE!!! meme.

1: Get a title from a random title generator. (I used this one, but Google has a wide selection.)
2: Add "IN SPAAAACE!!!" to the end.
3: Write a drabble!


So. Well. Um. This is in my X-UNIT crossover 'verse wherein the Brig founded the X-Men. And... I cannot explain it at all. O_O

Title: Vortex of Musings IN SPAAAACE!!!
Summary: Uh. Pointless humor teamfluff piece?
Notes: 153 words. Kitty Pryde, Liz Shaw, the Brig, Wolverine, and cameos by Nightcrawler and Colossus. (I absolutely could not squeeze Storm in, but she is part of the team in this 'verse.)

Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate, because this is DUMB )
curuchamion: TARDIS in a sunny field (sunny TARDIS field)
Okay, so I was poking InfiniteViking's back archives (as I do - some of my longtime friends know that I tend to marathon interesting people's journal archives when I'm bored, and scatter comments along my way), and I found a "List 100 awesome female characters" meme.

This leads me to realize that I don't even know if I could come up with 25 or 50 awesome female characters, let alone 100. I pay far too little attention to the ladies - heck, the TARDIS is the only female character in my icons right now! O_O Except for her, my favorite characters from my various fandoms fit quite well under the heading of "my guys".

So. For an experiment: rockin' awesome female characters in no particular order. Good, evil, human, alien, inorganic... let's see how many I can come up with!

Hopefully this will be long )

Well! That was educational! It seems that many things I like actually have quite a high concentration of awesome ladies - I just don't primarily focus on them. Granted, most of them are in pretty minor roles. o_O

(Feel free to suggest female characters I missed in the comments! Admittedly, there are some I left out on purpose, but there are also many many many that I just haven't seen yet or plain forgot about. *g*)
curuchamion: Snoopy dressed as Sherlock Holmes (Snoopy Holmes)
From Dwth's [community profile] fannish5 comm, one of those random memeish question-posty things:

Name your 5 favorite fictional marriages.

On finding that very few people get married in my fandoms, I change it to marriages and couples who ought to have got married (or, in one case, arguably are married by some definition)... and I'm still astonished that I could come up with five. ;-)

This is, as usual, a cut )

And that's five, and I'm going to bed. Wow. Shouldn't have stayed up this late. But I've been meaning to babble about some of this for a while.

ETA: and apparently I totally forgot Han/Leia and Sarek/Amanda. *headslap* And now I am going to bed.
Okay... if y'all didn't already know (as you may well not - I've been making quite a few new friends), this weekend is LJ's fic_rush, a 48-hour fanfic writing marathon held once a month. Obviously nobody stays for the whole 48 hours (!!) - we just all drop in and out as we please, chatter with our fellow writers in the hourly posts at fic_rush_48, and write whatever we want. (It doesn't even have to be fiction: I spent a good many 'rushes working on college application essays last summer.)

Anyway! You are all cordially invited to come over and write with us, if you can get in past the Russian Mafia's dastardly attempts to shut us down. C'mon, it's a lot of fun.

And - the point of this post - we have a long-standing tradition of crackfic in the later hours of the 'rush. This is the first time I've contributed, and I'm quite proud of myself. ;-)

Title: Kicking AUs, Taking Names
Summary: In which the motorcycle space pirates take on the Russian Mafia.
Notes: 654 words. Gen, rated G. Massive multi-fandom canon!AU crossover; I'll be happy to explain stuff in comments if anybody wants.

Mafia and motorcycles under the cut! )
curuchamion: First Doctor inside a Dalek, from The Space Museum (One in a Dalek)
So! *insert long explanation involving [personal profile] clocketpatch's [community profile] help_haiti donation and [community profile] fandom_stocking here*

Short version? Last January I sat down at a computer and determined I would not get up again till I'd written the Doctor Who/X-Men crossover or "mashup" that ClocketPatch had requested from me (and made a donation for) the previous January. This is what happened.

Title: United Nations Mutant Taskforce
Summary: In which the Brigadier founds the X-Men. Basically.
Notes: ~300 words. Gen, rated G. There ought to be more of this, but I make no promises.

Underneath )
And I have snazzy stuff! Which I am going to link and chatter about because [livejournal.com profile] eponymous_rose did for hers and I am nothing if not original, oh yes. ;-)

This is long )
...Can I get a quick beta for a 600-word Doctor Who (UNIT)/X-Men crossover? You don't need to know either fandom; I just want to find out if it's as dire in its current condition as I think it is.

Thanks, anybody that takes me up on this...
Blast and blue blazes! I had this post all ready to go and the interwebz [Poll #1475383]
Just a quick ficrec here, as I spent most of my spare time today working on a comment for the [livejournal.com profile] mfu_canteen post "Illya as Cutter?", which I sort of inspired with a comment on [livejournal.com profile] tgabrielle 's Summit Five Affair review.

Anyway. The rec: Weapon K by C Wehst on File 40. Slight X-Men crossover; I'd have written this fic myself if it didn't already exist. Summary: Ever wonder what happens to all of Illya's scars?
