21st-Dec-2014 12:32 pm - LoM Chat tonight!

Hello, all! I am here to announce today's chat but regrettably I will be absent once again due to work obligations. Try not to have TOO much fun without me! *gives creepy hugs*

The Lifein1973 chatroom will be open from 7PM GMT tonight. All are welcome! Check yer worldclock if you aren’t quite sure what time that is. Not that we’ll be angry if you’re late. Ray might throw things at you, however! But Chris will bring you tea and biscuits to apologise, so it all evens out somewhere.

We are slated to engage in our normal regimen of fandom waffling and the ceremonial sharing of the Party Seven. Invite your friends! Tell them we don’t bite, they won’t realize the truth until it’s too late! Just kidding— we really don’t bite (probably). >:D

So what are you waiting for? Shove a bacon butty in your mouth and drive backwards very fast to the chatroom!

Title: A Visit From Saint Nicholas
Rating: Green Cortina (Some language and irreverent speech *cough* Gene! *cough*)
Word count: 2,560
Notes: Had this idea while shopping with a friend. Happened to see some flasks for sale and expressed indignation because they had plastic caps. :p It's a bit silly, but compared with yesterday's entry it's downright solemn.

Christmas Day at CID...Collapse )

Rating: Green Cortina (some episode-related angst and dialogue (1x01))
Pairing/Characters: Mild Sam/Annie // Annie, a dash of Neil, Sam, a side of Gene
Word Count: About 2.8k words
Notes: Happy birthday, talkingtothesky! ♥ ♥ ♥ Hope you're having a super great day! *HUGS*
So, I could have written you two different things, and I went with some Annie pov from the end of 1x01 because the other one just didn't want to work (not to say I don't hope to eventually finish it... it just wasn't being cooperative). Hope you enjoy, and I really hope you're having a wonderful birthday. ♥
Summary: So it can't end like this, cut short before it's even been able to begin.

Title: "What's in the bag?"
Artist: aisforinterval
Rating: White Cortina
Character: Sam Tyler, Gene Hunt
Notes: This actually only happened because in the later days of my storyboarding class, the software was broken and I couldn't do any work, so I took photoshop requests because I was bored in class with no work to do. artemisprose on tumblr requested "Gene as Santa with the rest as reindeer", as this was as close as I got. Merry festivemas yaaaaaaaaaaaay. -flop-
Summary: Pretty much the title.
