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!

Title: Of Wolf And Man (RP doodles)
Artists: little_cello and fern_tree
Rating: up to Brown Cortina for blood, just to be on the safe side (copious amounts of both Sam!whump and Gene!whump... though actually that ratio is around 30/70 here)
Pairing: Sam/Gene (basically Friends to Lovers over the course of the story)
Notes: Fern and I are still RPing, and our werewolf!Gene thread has been a much-loved favourite of ours ever since we started it last March (and it's still going strong!). We exchanged doodles and sketches over the last year, so I thought it'd be nice to compile them in one post, and maybe even wet people's appetites to go have a read over at Roleplay on Mars. ;)

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.

22nd-Feb-2017 02:01 pm - Inside No 9, episode: The Bill
I hope you all had/will have the chance to see last night's episode of (the hilarious dark comedy series) Inside No 9, which had a guest-starring role for Philip Glenister. Well worth the watch!

For those inside the UK, here is the link to the iPlayer (available for 29 days).

John Simm will be in tomorrow's episode of "My London" on BBC Radio London at 13:00 GMT, talking to Gary Crowley about his memories of the capital, for a whole 60 minutes!

Catch the show here - I believe the BBC radio programmes are all accessible worldwide - and if you can't listen to it live, it should be available for at least another week after airing. :)

(And on a side-not, don't forget to catch John Simm in the next series of The Catch, airing March 9th - Rhys has been promoted to regular! And who doesn't need more Rhys in their lives.)

Title: Complementary, Contemporary
Author: danae_b
Rating: Brown Cortina (established relationship, fluff, smut, dash of romance, domestics)
Pairings: Sam/Gene
Word Count: 5.7k
Notes: lozenger8 and I exchanged prompts and this is the story I wrote! I meant to link to it sooner, but it slipped my mind. Sorry for that!
Thanks to talkingtothesky for the beta. ♥ Any remaining errors are to be blamed on me.
Summary: It's just dinner with Gene, Sam probably shouldn't overreact.

(Complementary, Contemporary)

go on please
it's just gravitational (4077 words) by Loz
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Life on Mars (UK)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Gene Hunt/Sam Tyler
Additional Tags: Friends to Lovers, Fluff
Summary: danae_b prompted me to write a fic, this is the result.

Gene prides himself on his ability to suss people out and have a working idea about their backstory within about ten minutes of contact. He’s good at predicting what they’ve done and what they’re yet to do. He knows when people are lying—to him or to themselves.

So it vexes him that Sam is a mystery.

Title: A Time and a Place
Author: danae_b
Rating: Brown Cortina (over all, Brown Cortina for this part) (across both parts, we have: established relationship, Gene's a Christmas grouch, a dash of casefic and then Christmas fluff and smut)
Pairings/Characters: Sam/Gene // Sam, Gene, OCs aplenty, Gene's mum
Word Count: 5k in this part (12.5k total)

Endless thanks go to lozenger8 for the wonderful beta, as well as all the hand-holding in general, and all of her picky-pain dedication ;) ♥
Summary: It's supposed to be no big deal, what they do on Christmas.

1st-Dec-2016 08:50 am - Advent Calendar 2016 Signups
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, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015

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.
