Invictus, an original Robin Hood novel
15th-Aug-2019 04:26 pm - Fic: So Late Into The Night 4/5 B7
Title: So Late Into The Night 4/5
Author: Unsentimental Fool
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Mature
Relationships: Blake/Tarrant, Avon/Tarrant
Word Count: 19900

For the last couple of years life has been pretty straightforwardly pleasant for Tarrant. At his home on Frais he lives with Blake, his husband of twenty years and the man he loves unconditionally. On Liberator he shares Avon's bed when he would otherwise be sleeping alone. Everyone seems to be satisfied enough with the arrangement. It hasn't occurred to him to wonder what would happen if the rest of the world finds out.

Notes: Part 5 of the One Small Change series
This one got rather longer than I anticipated, what with the politics and the space battles and the mysterious babies and the celebrities and the sex and the moral dilemmas and the arguments but it does seem to genuinely be coming towards a close now.

Rating: Mature
Relationships: Blake/Tarrant, Avon/Tarrant
Word Count: 4475

"You, me, Avon - the press will have a field day.”

“We're old and boring,” Blake said without much conviction. “A three day wonder at the most. There are voters now who were born after the Revolution. What do they care about our personal relationships?”

3rd-May-2019 03:55 pm - Fic: Fighting Chance B7
My break from writing lasted a month, which is something. Anyway here is the thing I wrote when I wasn't going to write anything.

Title: Fighting Chance
Author: Unsentimental Fool
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Teen and up
Characters: Blake, Avon, Jenna, Gan, Cally, Vila
Word Count: 5,318
Summary: Avon snorted. "If I were in charge of brainwashing a dissident the first thing I'd erase would be your desire to fight, and the second would be your memories of ever thinking otherwise."
Notes: Post Cygnus Alpha.

17th-Apr-2019 04:31 pm(no subject)
I'm sorry about both Notre Dame and London Zoo's poor Sumatran tiger. I will try not to fictionally destroy anything else, just in case. (On the plus side, I did also write the wrecking of the Dorchester's tea rooms so maybe the Sultan of Brunei will get what's coming to him.)
20th-Mar-2019 03:14 pm - Fanfic? What's fanfic?
The Guardian yesterday had a brief and accidentally hilarious article about the highly respected literary writer Francis Spufford who has written an ‘unauthorised’ Narnia novel and is most upset that C S Lewis’s estate isn't begging him to publish it.

The total lack of context was quite startling. As far as everyone concerned with the article seemed to be aware, he must be the first person ever to write such a thing and of course it ought to make him lots of money because his (also white male middle-aged) friends thought it was really really good. So much so that they were happy to award it somewhat premature canon status as "a sensitive and brilliant addition to the Narnia corpus". There was bafflement about why the Lewis estate was utterly uninterested but not the slightest recognition that they no doubt get sent unauthorised Narnia novels at least twice a week and they aren't talent spotting literary agents.

I'm sure many of us have been tempted to print out 75 hard copies of our favourite pride and joy fanfic and hand them out to our family and friends, but most of us have just about enough self awareness not to tell the Guardian about it. Anyway many of the comments are fun.
17th-Mar-2019 07:06 pm - Fic: Standing Orders Blake's 7
I have finished Standing Orders, the last part of the One Small Change series which had weighed in at a eye-watering 87,790 words and is now very definitely done.

In case anyone is curious, the one small change is that it is Blake who returns to Liberator after Star One and Avon who is missing. The series runs from just after Star One through the Revolution and ends around a decade and a half afterwards. It's mostly Blake/Tarrant with a remarkable amount of highly amoral Avon and a lot of derring-do, politics and misunderstandings. I have had great fun with it but all things must end.
18th-Feb-2019 10:27 pm - Fic: Standing Orders chapter 6
Title: Standing Orders 6/8
Author: Unsentimental Fool
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Teen and up
Characters: Blake, Tarrant, Avon, Cally, Vila
Pairing: Blake/Tarrant
Word Count:

Standing Orders Ch 6 on

Some more of Standing Orders posted, because obviously what everyone wants to read about at the moment is politics. Any resemblance to current US or UK politics, living or dead, is entirely coincidental, by the way.
7th-Feb-2019 06:31 pm - Standing Orders chapters 1 and 2
Title: Standing Orders
Author: Unsentimental Fool
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Teen and up
Pairing: Blake/Tarrant
Word Count: 3,861

As Commander of the Republic's armed forces for the last ten years, Del Tarrant is strictly forbidden from getting involved in politics. But since he's married to Roj Blake, currently serving his fourth term as President on a wafer thin majority and with all his political enemies circling like wolves at the scent of weakness, it seems to others that Tarrant has to be doing just that.

Fortunately Blake is quite capable of managing anything that politicians can throw at him without spousal assistance. It's an old problem, not one of their many new ones, that is coming back to haunt then both.

Standing Orders Ch 1 on AO3

Notes: Sequel to Happiest Day, in the One Small Change series.
Title: Anything But 1/6
Author: Unsentimental Fool
Fandom: The Prisoner/Sherlock
Rating: Gen (for now)
Characters: Number Two, Number Six
Word Count: 1,909

The new Number Two is not seriously concerned by the possibility of failure. Number Six might have proved difficult so far but everyone is fallible. Strictly speaking, it would be more correct to say that everyone else is fallible. Number Two has never considered himself to fall in the category of "everyone".

Number Six doesn't think of himself as infallible either but he'll be damned if he'll make it easy for anyone to take him down. This Two will doubtless come and go like the others did. It's the power behind that ridiculous basket chair that matters. Just who is Number One?
