Warning: This is long. Seriously long. With lots of thinky thoughts. And picspam! But still: long. Couldn't hurt to make some tea first.

Ready, then?

Summary: Nothing is stronger than a mother's love... not even her tapestry needle.
Author's note: Written for the Icon Challenge on the LiveJournal community [livejournal.com profile] lifein1973 on 9-Dec-11. The icon in question is, um... *points up and to the right*


"Mum! I can't wear this!"

"Stop fidgeting, lad, or I'll stick you with a pin. —Ah, that's more like."

"Evening jackets are supposed to be elegant, mum. Not flocked. I look like I'm wearing a bloody sofa..."

"Language! What the Lord Mayor doesn't know won't hurt him. It worked for Maria von Trapp and it'll work for you. Now stop fussing."

"The other men have off-the-rack..."

"Well, they don't have mothers who love their sons, then. —All right, you can look now."

"Ah, God..."

"—And if you keep moaning, it'll be more than curtains for YOU, sonny-jim!"

Summary: His mission: to protect the prozzies, the drunks, the stray dogs, the little old men.
Author's note: Written for the challenge High Concept on the LiveJournal community lifein1973 on 21-Oct-11.


By day he's a senior police officer. He cultivates the aura of a compromised bureaucrat, a man infinitely more devoted to his career path than to justice.

In his wildest dreams, he never expected his disguise to be so convincing.

When darkness falls, he takes out the cape, the leggings, and strokes them reverently. Then he runs up to the roof, dons his costume like a knight strapping on his armour, and leaps into the night's embrace.

His mission: to protect the prozzies, the drunks, the stray dogs, the little old men.

It's a bird! It's a plane!

It's... Superintendent.

Moustaches: the very hair of manliness. Where would Life on Mars be without them? Nowhere, that's where. Can you imagine Ray without his moustache, or Litton? I can't.

So when I read that Dean Andrews is regrowing his Ray moustache to raise money for prostate cancer, I realised that Movember is indeed the perfect month for a picspammy profile of...

The Moustachio'ed Men of Mars!!! )

nSeveral readers have asked me questions about my Big Bang fic, There's a Land of Begin Again. What's really going on with Sam? What does the ending mean? Has his timeline completely gone off the rails? And so on.

So I thought it couldn't hurt to share this DVD commentary with those who want to know more. If you've read the fic and you're curious, read on.

If you haven't actually read the fic, HERE BE MAJOR SPOILERS! You should *discreet cough* probably go off and read the fic before proceeding.

So, that having been said, here's the deep background on the fic.

When I was 13 years old, my friend Karen was in a car accident. She awoke with complete retrograde amnesia... )

The Nameless Ones (banner)

I'm taking a break from my [livejournal.com profile] lifein1973 Ficathon assignment to share my fangirl love for the Nameless Ones of Life on Mars. These unsung, literally smoking heroes of CID appear in the background of many a scene, even get to mutter the occasional line, yet receive virtually no acknowledgement.

Until now! )

my fanfic

Like it says on the tin! Welcome to my archive of Life on Mars fics and other fannish wanderings. In each section, the newest fic is at the top. Most of my completed works are archived on Archive of our Own (AO3), which is where I'll be moving everything eventually, and where most of these links now point. I'm pretty sure I'm not pointing to any obsolete pages, but if you hit a bad link, please let me know.
