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!
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.
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 )Spock
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.

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!

Hello all! Tis I, your one and only Dana (there is only one of me, right??), here to announce the weekly chat/watchalong (if enough interested parties show up)! We're up to 2x01 this week, hope to see some of you there!
The chatroom will open at 7pm BST. If you're not sure of what time that is for you, then you can use this handy handy clock
right here to verify. After you know when and where you are, clickity click
right here to join us in the chatroom!
What are you waiting for?!
So because I'm having a horrible case of Fernweh I decided to start following a few of the Greater Manchester Police twitter accounts (there's one for each of the boroughs), and so far it's been the best decision I ever made. I decided to share this experience with you because of one particular aspect of it:( gasp what a cliffhangerCollapse )
Hello all! Both your friendly local Dana AND Reb are busy doing things today, but the chatroom is right here
in case you still want to hang out and chat! If there's enough people to watch an episode, we're on 2x01 this week (if not today then hopefully we can tackle it next week).

It's up to you to interpret how to work the challenge word in, directly or indirectly. Have fun!
Your friendly local Reb is here to announce the Sunday chat, which will include a watchalong if there is sufficient interest/attendance. When I initially asked danae_b
which episode we were on I received a response of "Oh f*** me, I don't know," but Dana perked right up after remembering we have reached episode 1x8
in our progression. So please do drop by if you'd like to view the episode with us, or even if you're just feeling the urge for a natter. :D
The chatroom will be open from what is now 7pm BST. Pretty sure all our clocks have normalised now, but if you're not sure of the time use this clock
to verify. The link to the chatroom is located right over here, so clickity click
What are you waiting for? Shove a bacon butty in your mouth (and definitely one in Dana's mouth-- she's not a vegetarian I promise) and drive backwards very fast to the chatroom!

Brown Cortina (first time, office sex, meant to be a total PWP but you know me)Pairing:
Happy birthday, rebelxxwaltz
:D I tried to write you a PWP but you know how good I am at that (but I feel like I was mostly successful this time).
Set during series, somewhere between 1x06 and 1x07, mostly lighthearted (for it being what it is, and who we're dealing with).
Endless thanks to lozenger8
for the beta! ♥Summary:
'So, that was a serious offer, was it?'( Fair"s Only FairCollapse )
