Epilogue
purple_bug: (I swear I have a life...)
Nicked it from [livejournal.com profile] glitterfairy25, cos it looked interesting and I do watch a hell of a lot of telly. Let's see if I watch as much as I think I do :o)

Only one rule: If you watch an episode more than once a year you can list it again if you haven't already listed it in the current month.

I'll try to remember what I've watched since the year started... My archives are coming in handy here :oD Does a typical Classic Who or TP story count as four episodes? I'll do it like that until told otherwise, since you can split them up and watch some later, like I did last week. And do audios count? They come in episodes... It says 'watch', so I guess not. Besides, I don't think I'll need help reaching the target :oD

What's interesting is what I've watched for the first time by myself, and what I've watched with other people, often for the second or third (or fifteenth) time. I think I'll put a name next to the episode in question if I watched it with someone.

Edit, 2nd May: Reached 500 easily - going for 1000 :o)

Edit, 29th August: Reached 1000, just carrying on.

Title: Ὕστερον πρότερον (2/2)
Pairing: Mel/Ace
Rating: PG-13
Words: ~4000
Summary: The locals of Epsilon Xi have a troubled future ahead of them. Or possibly behind them. Mel's getting a bit muddled with all this, actually.
Author's Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] dw_femslash ficathon, for [livejournal.com profile] glinda_penguin, who wanted crossing of timestreams and mythology, and gave me this quote: "They have not wanted Peace at all; they have wanted to be spared war - as though the absence of war was the same as peace." - Dorothy Thompson. The title is Greek, and translates as "The latter one first". Further notes on a few small bits of Greek used in the fic are under the cut. Sorry again for the delay - RL sucks. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] agapi42 for her fast and helpful beta work! :o)

I fucking hate moving house. I've got a flatmate's grumpy grandparent, a hall full of boxes and bags, an unhoovered floor, a headache, a major case of "I DON'T FUCKING CARE ANYMORE" and no keys for the new flat.

Please, just let this all be over.

And the second fic for the [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest. I really like this one a lot :o) And there are pictures! :oD

Title: Keeping Secrets
Author: purple_bug
Fandom: The Tomorrow People
Pairing/characters: John Dixon/Chris Harding, Mike Bell, Hsui Tai, Elizabeth M'Bondo, Andrew Forbes, TIM
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: This story features characters and concepts from the 1970s television series, 'The Tomorrow People', created by Roger Price and produced by Thames Television.
Prompt: #787. The leader of the Tomorrow People is all but hero-worshipped by those he guides through their turbulent break-outs and teaches how to use their special powers for the good of the Earth. So how are they going to react when he tells them/they find out he's gay/bi?
Summary: Keeping his friends in the dark about his personal life might not have been John's best idea. Being dragged out of the closet isn't fun.
Warnings: Use of mild derogatory slang.
Words: ~3400
A/N: Set in 1980, shortly after War of the Empires. Beta'd by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] ponygirl72 and the fantastic [livejournal.com profile] bytheseaside, with some invaluable help from [livejournal.com profile] agapi42.

Keeping Secrets )
purple_bug: (Breaking out)
This is the first of my two Tomorrow People fics for the [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest. It's not terribly long, so I would be very pleased if my friends at least would give it a read, even if they've never seen the show or heard the audios. It should be fairly easy to understand even without prior knowledge. I'd be very grateful for any feedback :o)


Title: ...And I'm Feeling Good
Author: purple_bug
Fandom: The Tomorrow People
Pairing/characters: Original Character, Elena, Paul, John Dixon, TIM
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: This story features characters and concepts from the Big Finish audio productions of 'The Tomorrow People', which are based in turn on the 1970s television series of the same name, created by Roger Price and produced by Thames Television.
Prompt: #785. A new Tomorrow Person breaks out in the 21st century, with the help of Elena or Paul. Having encountered homophobic attitudes from his/her family and school friends, the new TP is reluctant to come out to his/her new friends, but when Paul/Elena shares a secret, it's made a lot easier.
Summary: Breaking out is one thing. Coming out is a lot more difficult when it doesn't look like there's anyone on your side.
Warnings: Use of derogatory slang, descriptions of homophobic bullying.
Words: ~7500
A/N: Set in 2003, some time between The Curse of Kaaven and Alone. Beta'd by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] ponygirl72 and the fantastic [livejournal.com profile] bytheseaside.

Okay, so being born in the late 80s and having my childhood be the 90s would not be what I'd choose for myself, given the option. For one, the music sucked. Well, the pop was okay at the time, but embarrassing now (which doesn't mean I don't still dance around to it *grins*). But I would ideally have been born thirty years earlier, in the late 50s - I would have been a child for the Beatles and the beginning of Doctor Who, a pre-teen/teenager for Star Trek, The Tomorrow People (and more Who), not to mention David Bowie and the rest of the awesome music, and I'd be about the age I am now for Sapphire and Steel (and obviously still more Who *grins*). As it stands, I get to catch up with these shows and the music after the fact, but I'm still missing out on things like the burninated episodes of Doctor Who that no-one will ever see again :o(

But that wasn't my point. I'm stuck with a 90s childhood - however, while I caught quite a few repeats of awesome kids telly from the 60s and 70s (Camberwick Green, Mr Benn, etc), the kids telly of the time was actually pretty great. Good enough that the sound of the theme tunes makes me grin like mad and want to hug things. I've been following links on Youtube and have found several shows, mostly for younger children but a couple for slightly older kids. I will now share these so you guys can reminisce - or glare at me for being young, whichever you prefer :oP (And the non Brits can just boggle at the cracked-out telly that influenced my generation.)

Several links that may well make you smile )

Oh, and Susan! I found your Samurai Pizza Cats thing! :oD
