Welcome to Lifein1973, a fan community for all things Life on Mars (UK). If this is your first time, please take a moment to read the rules, thank you!
This is where you can pledge to post a thing during the month of December! Posts can be anything you like - get creative! In previous years we've had LoM wrapping paper, tree decorations, jigsaw puzzles, games, fic, fanart, graphics, gifs and recs. It needn't be holiday themed, although it can be, the idea is just to fill as many 'doors'/days in the month with LoM stuff as we can.
Previous years: 2011
Comment below with a date (or two!) you can post something during the month and we'll all enjoy the festive spirit on the comm.
( The CalendarCollapse )
Title: Cownt Your Blessings
Rating: Green Cortina
Summary: Gene falls into a canal and gets very sick.
Notes: To the wonderful xysabridde
, whose birthday is today: I had the pleasure of meeting up with you again recently. I've not laughed so hard before or since. Please have a moo-gnificent day. (And no, the title is not a typo.) To fern_tree
: River Diseases! I finally wrote it!
Warning: mentions of unpleasant bodily functions associated with sick bugs...Fic on AO3( Cownt Your BlessingsCollapse )
From the StartAuthor: danae_bRating:
Sam/Maya, Sam/Annie, Sam/GeneWord Count:
600 words exactly (a set of six drabbles)Notes:
Just a passing look at Sam and some of the relationships in his life. Not an upbeat piece, but not meant to be an intentional downer. It is what it is. (It also doesn't try to put one of these on a pedestal in relation to the others.) I probably first meant to post this as a bittersweet something for Valentine's day (way back in 2014 >.>), but at this point? Who really knows.
For such a short thing, I've been working on it ages. Endless thanks are due to talkingtothesky
, for all the time and support she gave me when I was first trying to beat this into postable shape, pretty much forever ago. I kept working on this and finally, finally, after duckyone
read through and held my hand (thanks <3) I think it's ready.
Also, why not post this after the pornfest I just put up? Balances things out quite nicely, I think.Summary:
Sam tries.( From the StartCollapse )

Close QuartersAuthor: danae_bRating:
Brown Cortina (established relationship, utter pwp, car sex, some leather kink)Pairing:
A short ficlet written to prove that I can
do proper PWPs. All sex, no plot, also written as a distraction against some world warping things that are going on right now. This is not betead, so pardon any mistakes.Summary:
This is exactly what Sam wanted. It may be what Gene needs.( Close QuartersCollapse )
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you may respond to the drabble challenge at ANY point during the week, not only the day that it's posted. You can also use the awfully handy "track this" button if you want to keep an eye on it.( The rules, such as they are...Collapse )Female Characters
I know we've done this one before but I thought it was time we visited it again!
The Way To His HeartAuthor: danae_bRating:
Green Cortina (some complicated and very strange flirtation is perhaps going on, first kiss)Pairing:
What started as a small pile of silliness and fluff exploded into something much larger (but that's okay, I was in the mood to write something happy).
Beta thanks go to the ever amazing lozenger8
Something is up, but Sam's not quite sure what.( The Way To His HeartCollapse )
I think about you from time to time, fandom, despite the changes you and I have been through. I think of friends old and new, and of those I didn't get to know but who's fic I enjoyed. So check in here, if you're still around. What are you up to? What do you love? My own response in the comments.

In honour of the new Star Trek that's coming out, as well as the fact that we all know Sam is a gigantic dork.
If Wishes Were...Author: danae_bRating:
White Cortina (established relationship, fluff and banter)Pairing:
This started as a drabble, was edited into a double drabble, and now exists as a 500 word ficlet. Just some fluff for breval
, not that I remember why I originally wrote it for her. ♥ Bit of a beta done by lozenger8
The weekend is here.( If Wishes Were...Collapse )

Just a little reminder that Roleplay on Mars
, an RP that I and Fern have been playing since May 2013, is still up and active - we usually update at least once a day each, but sometimes even more. So if any of you are feeling the fandom blues, do come on over and have a read - we've accumulated quite a number of threads/stories by now too, so there definitely isn't a shortage of fresh fandom material.
The stories range from whumpy to romantic to cracky to really damn romantic to... all of those, so I'm sure you'll find something you like! Also be advised that sometimes, sex happens. Explicit sex. We kinda stopped warning for that, so uh... now you know. XD
So, here's the link again: Clickety-click
! Enjoy. <3
(P.S.: Since Fern is coming to visit me tomorrow, we might actually update the banner sometime next week...!)
Is everybody too busy with work or studies? I really miss the watchalong :(
I checked the chatroom and a few weeks ago someone had posted: "Wow, this fandom really is dead :-("
That hurt. Don't die, our lovely lomcom!
