Invictus, an original Robin Hood novel
Chapter 10 of View from the Cheap Seats. In which I manage to please Tarrant, at least.
8th-Aug-2018 02:13 pm - Sapphire and Steel
I have finished the Sapphire and Steel DVDs, with huge, loved absolutely every minute delight, and now I have to work out how on earth I'm going to get access to the audio CDs. Also I wrote a short post-ending piece, just to get a feel for my own sense of the characters before I go away and read some fanfic. Something New on AO3.
Another couple of short chapters for A View from the Cheap Seats, and the number of chapters has been extended a bit because I don't seem to be near a resolution yet.

There may be a slight hiatus due to the fact that I haven't the faintest idea what happens next but that's pretty normal at this stage and I have learned over the years that it is nothing to panic about ;-) Also I have a 3k assignment on critical discourse analysis and Theresa May's Brexit speeches to finish which should probably start taking priority sometime soon. But more of this will doubtless turn up very soon anyway.

Chapter 5 of The View from the Cheap Seats is posted here

I am feeling nearly as sick as my characters at the moment, having got rather blasé about my long term medications and thoughtlessly taken something over the counter without checking first. For future reference, sodium citrate and lithium are most extremely not compatible. Still it had given me an excuse to lie on the sofa and watch Sapphire and Steel all afternoon.
Here's the first chapter of a Vila centred thing. It will acquire ratings etc when I figure out what it's about.

The View from the Cheap Seats ch 1 at AO3
21st-May-2018 03:25 pm - Fic: Quaint Honour (Blake's 7)
Title: Quaint Honour
Author: Unsentimental Fool
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Mature
Pairing: Avon/Blake
Word Count: 13,400
Summary:Blake's been on the Liberator for just two weeks but he's already decided that he would like to get to know a certain member of his new crew a little better. The crewmember in question thinks that's an astonishingly pointless idea.

Quaint Honour on AO3

Notes:  I was thinking about the various more or less satisfactory ways of getting characters together and it occurred to me that I've never written a fic in which people just date.

If this had been that story it would have been a great deal shorter. 

The title comes from Andrew Marvel's To His Coy Mistress which is one of my all time favourite love poems, being simultaneously romantic, rational and emotionally manipulative. 
14th-Apr-2018 05:28 pm - Fic: Spiderweb (Sherlock) complete
I have finally finished Spiderweb! Am very pleased with the way it turned out, even if it took a while to get there...

From AO3;

I feel with this one actually done there may even be hope for 'Fey, or the Story of the Inconsiderate Lodger' which is the R Downey Jr Sherlock and was started in 2010 and last updated 2016 but which I still think of as ongoing.
