 No Seriously, Fuck TH White and Mallory

A tale of Arthur and Merlin on their latest reincarnation as avatars of Britain.  Only they're not sure what they're supposed to be averting this lifetime given that they're running a café in a seaside town in Cornwall.  Still, at least it can't be as weird as that time Arthur was a plumber.

The most that's happened to it is that it was spellchecked, and will probably contain my usual levels of getting sidetracked by utterly random things.

 It's finished.  Huzzah!  With, er,  a coda in the future...

Title: Daughter of the Dragonlord
Summary: Due to a really regrettable incident where she saved Arthur's life, Merlin is now the prat's bodyguard. She'd really like to go back to being Morgana's lady-in-waiting.  If only because it might stop the overgrown lizard from going 'I told you so.'

(magic-never got banned, Merlin was born a girl, 'verse told in snippets)

Poking my Girl!Merlin bodyguard fic, which is being posted as snippets with only vague attempts at plot <a href=http://archiveofourown.org/works/782441>over on Ao3</a> (now with 90% less angst and head injuries to Arthur than the actual Merlin show due to magic being legal!).  After having figured out how to get a very random idea I had for this back when it was completely different and I was wailing about trying to get a follow-through cohesive plot bolted onto the 'verse into a snippet, I... think I've only got three more snippets inside me, aside from a 'few years down the line' coda.  Found it's a good way of coping with a verse and characters you have in your head but no cohesive plot.  Which is a bit more like a sitcom than an ongoing drama.

You may recall the girl!Merlin thing I occasionally mutter about.

I decided to start posting the occasional snippet at AO3 - still *utterly* lacking a plot as it's more of a 'verse, which will be almost certainly be completely out of order but at least I'll have something there if I ever manage to get a plot. There will almost certainly be lots of snarking at each other dialogue.

Daughter of the Dragonlord snippets, starting off with a bit of establishing backstory.

The Shadows Feel Like Home

The Nano. In which the Pevensies trip, fall, and somehow end up in Torchwood. It's not Susan's fault she shot an alien that was trying to kill Jack Harkness.

Spell-and-grammar checked but that's about it.

And yeah, this is pretty much the sequel to the National Service series. With added 'oh shut up I may or may not have adjusted the years a bit. And Susan is working for customs and excise, rather than the vague job she had.'

most of my more...reasonable fic is now over at A03 here (no, this does not include all the BtVS fic) Put up the post-Prince Caspian nano too.

Jane asked me to put the most recent nano up, but...er... any idea of what fandom?

And after having to clean the inside of the work microwave, have discovered *why* you put something over the top of soup. (I come from a family that traditionally uses this thing called a hob and a saucepan to heat up soup)

Surprisingly, very few films - Eagle, Captain America, Thor, X-men:First Class, Jane Eyre and Tinker Tailor are the only ones I remember going to see, aside from a couple of National Theatre live viewings.

Went to several BBC radio recordings - mostly John Finnemore focussed. (him behind Cabin Pressure)

Theatre - A *lot*. Globe for Much Ado, All's Well and Dr Faustus, Betty Blue Eyes, Haunted Child, Ladykillers, Soho Cinders, a few concerts here and there for new writing, Matthew Bourne's Cinderella twice, Some Like It Hip Hop, Flare Path, Macbeth, all-male Iolanthe, Vernon God Little, and ordinary days. er. i think that's all of it...

What if The Authority was picked up by HBO for a tv series: We Want to Save the World But We Need a Drink First
My Matthew Bourne Obsession Is Showing : An Eagle of the Ninth Billy Elliot/Step Up AU, Culture is Never Wasted
burntcopper: (Default)
So, in a fit of complete insanity, knowing bugger all about the TV industry aside from how it looks on the outside, I wrote what if The Authority by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch was made into a tv series. Done as a series of tweets, conversations, interviews and blog, lj and tumblr posts.

It's spellchecked and slightly edited but not very much.

This year, I did more than nano! Huzzah! (we will ignore the fact that most of it was bunnies I finally beat into submission)

Anyway:

Tourist Bait, in which a 1920s Torchwood investigates the history of violent deaths and disappearances in a picturesque country town.
Tales From Legend to Scare Their Children, in which Glozelle keeps an eye on the beasts of Narnia.
Putting the Natives at Ease, in which the Pevensie parents try to desperately ignore the fact that their children are not ...normal.
The Nature of my Game, the nano. In which a copper is chosen for long-term undercover london gangster scene work. Featuring secret service werewolves, psychic thieves and bouncers.

and now I'm off to drink gin and eat pizza.
