(Dis)Orientation
PG
HS
Set in September 2174 on the Saturnian moons of Calypso, Telesto and Tethys, in this open-ended AU Arnold Rimmer, aged 25, has made the decision to quit the Space Corps and pursue an arts degree. In this part he meets his new roommate, Dave Lister, an engineering student with a lax attitude towards unimportant things like classes.

Life Drawing
PG
HRS
Part two of the open-ended Art College AU, in which Arnold takes a life drawing class and gets to see rather more of his roommate than he would’ve liked.

Red Dwarf characters belong to Grant Naylor Productions and the BBC.

Dedicated to Ver, Nat, Caz, Fia, Arella and Bitsy. Always and always.

(Dis)Orientation and Life Drawing, archived at AO3.

Just so you know, this was well and truly inspired by [livejournal.com profile] veronica_rich and [livejournal.com profile] metalkatt, but since I started it absolutely months and months ago I can't remember what the smeg they said to inspire it.

These are the first two bits. I don't know how many bits there will be, but I do have story notes about what Kochanski, McGruder, Todhunter and Hollister, amongst others, are also doing in this AU, so there will be more at some point, and of course there will eventually be actual slash, not just pre-slash. I just couldn't leave these bits unposted any longer after I finished 'Life Drawing' at five o'clock this morning.

If you haven't done the drabble tree thing before, someone posts a drabble (a 100-word ficlet) and then in comments people posts new drabbles, using a line (or part thereof) from the previous drabble in their drabble.

This one is unthemed, I just felt like starting one. The last one we did is here (am searching for other examples to tag as well).




He could never remember who’d reached for whom first. His hand had made contact with Rimmer’s hard-light form, touching his side through that stupid blue jacket; Rimmer’s hand had closed on his shoulder, squeezing hard, and they’d given each other a look of disbelief. This opened up a whole world of things that had previously been impossible.

They’d lost no time in trying out several of those things that night. Drowsing with his arm draped across Rimmer’s bare chest, half-open eyes focused on the silly grin on the hologram’s face, Lister understood: all they’d both needed was a good shag.

'Attention, all Asteroid personnel. We're back in business. Or at least it'd be shiny if we were back in business. Anyone who's interested, report for duty.'

'Look out, fandom, the fen are coming home. Message ends.'





In other words, I'm opening a LiveJournal community for RD fandom members, whether you have been a part of the Omni-zone shenanigans before or not, to write collab fic, do some kind of RP, or whatever floats your spaceship. The community intro is here so feel free to jump in and comment, or make your own community post, or whatever you fancy. The premise is that anyone who wants to is returning to the Asteroid, which hasn't been used since 2004.

Previous Omni-zone stories are archived at AO3.

I do apologise to those of you who will see this more than once, since I'm crossposting it to the RDHS and RDSS as well.

The RDHS has only 77 members and is totally inactive and [livejournal.com profile] reddwarffanfic has 92 members but there are like five times that on here, so damn it, I am going to ask this het-tastic question here.

Has anyone written Dave Lister/Deb Lister fic and can point me to it, or has read it and can point me to it, or has a plotbunny for it they want to throw at me? I have the feeling that when Fia and I did the massive pairings binge years ago we may have skipped the het.

sorry for getting all het up (heh) in the slash comm. sorry, sorry, bye, sorry, bye, sorry...

(fuck it, if being one of the grand old ladies of the fandom doesn't let me abuse the comm once in a while, what's the point?)

OH AND HANG ON THERE WAS THAT OTHER THING I MEANT TO MENTION THAT WAS ACTUALLY RELEVANT

To keep things on topic, I recently posted up the Omni-Zone Series on AO3. The relevant fic is 'Realarama'. Basically, what I'm eventually asking is whether anyone fancies doing another fic with us innit? What worked best with that fic in particular out of the series was each person who participated writing their own Better than Life chapter (seriously go look if you're interested, I'll wait), and then I wrote the bits around it to tie it all together. RDSS 'canon' says that the Slash Society and the Het Society share office space on The Asteroid, which is an asteroid with a massive building on it with computers and mango juice vats and all sorts of random shit, and we acquired a stack of BTL headbands.

So, if anyone is interested, drop me a comment and I can write up an official how to participate post sometime in the next couple of days so we're all on the same page with guidelines. The last one was way fun to write and I'd be totally interested in seeing what more people who weren't around for the first one would write. Obvs. it doesn't have to be all your deepest darkest desires -- again, check out the fic to see how we did it last time.

P.S. I love how everyone who replied to my fandom survey said Lister/Rimmer as their OTP. This fandom is tight knit like NO OTHER, I tell you, and I love you all for it.

I need to kickstart myself into getting some stuff written, and I thought a drabble tree would be the perfect way to do it. We've had a couple of these here before, but for those who haven't participated before, here's how it works:

Below the cut is a drabble (100 words exactly). Anyone who wants to participate replies to this post with another drabble containing one of the sentences or phrases from the original drabble. The subject line should be the words you took. The next person should continue the trend, stealing a sentence or phrase and beginning their own.

Any particular drabble can be drawn from as many times as you want. If you don't feel like writing 100 words exactly, that's OK. Near-drabbles of approximately 100 words are fine too. It's about having fun, not exact definitions. ;)

Still confused? Here's one we did earlier!

Okay so some of you miiiight remember this massive cracky RDSS crossover that me and a bunch of RDSSers wrote back in the early-mid 2000s. I've put it up on AO3 as a piece of our fandom's history, but if anyone objects to this (not just because my writing is shit, mind you, but like if you no longer want to be in the biggest Mary Sue crackfic of all time), please for the love of all the gods tell me and I will take it right back down.

OKAY. That aside, I did notice something when I was roaming the past, and that is that so bloody many of us wrote Mary Sues (fine, fine, original characters, but I know mine at least was too blatant to be anything but a Sue) who hooked up with Rimmer. Which brings me to the following poll:

I know some of you already know about the Archive Of Our Own fanworks archive, but I wanted to pimp the heck out of it anyway, because I've been uploading all my old fic to it over the last week or so and have been discovering many features that make is shiny and awesome, such as:
  • A tagging system similar to the entry tagging here on LJ
  • The ability to backdate your works so the publication date is when you wrote them rather than when you uploaded them (LOVING this one; stunned that Floor 13 is TEN YEARS OLD!)
  • The ability to organise your works into a series
  • The ability to import works from other sites online, including the Pit of Voles (fanfiction.net)
  • NC-17 works and RPF are allowed, unlike the Pit
  • It's not the Pit. 'Nuff said.

As well as these things for ease of posting, AO3 makes it possible to search by tags, fandom, characters, author, rating, you name it. It has an easy to understand rating/warning system. You can view fics chapter by chapter or as one long page. It's not the Pit. (I'm not at all irritated about being banned from there without warning or getting to appeal the ban, no, really.)

AO3 is still in beta, but it's already working extremely well. The main hitch I've seen so far is a minor issue with chapter navigation while editing, and that only matters if you're going back and forth between chapters while editing. Also, as yet it doesn't have a fanart or fanvid section, but that is in the plan. There are already quite a few Red Dwarf fics up, yay!

I absolutely still want people to post their works here, of course. But I'd love it if people would at least consider archiving their old and new works there, particularly so that we can preserve people's older works that may have become forgotten -- I'm sure we've all had a fic or author niggling at our memory at some point and been unable to find it.

Hope to see y'all over there!

If you haven't done the drabble tree thing before, someone posts a drabble (a 100-word ficlet) and then in comments people posts new drabbles, using a line from the previous drabble in their drabble.

By request, here is the base of a rarepair drabble tree -- so for this drabble tree, make your pairing something other than Lister/Rimmer.




There was nothing like the chance to finally be alone. Starbug's cockpit was cramped but for the time being they didn't need him. Rimmer stretched out on the bunk, one command vanishing his clothes, another command calling in his favourite aid to self-gratification. The others were busy; he could really enjoy himself this time.

He was almost at the pinnacle of pleasure when Lister unexpectedly walked in. The Scouser's face was undeniably unimpressed as he took in all the details of the passionate scene.

'Can't you at least shut the door, man? That’s disgustin'.'

'Mr Flibble's very unfulfilled,' Rimmer grumped.

I had so much fun writing that drabble yesterday, that I thought I'd suggest a drabble tree. For those who've never participated in one before, here's how it works:

Below the cut is a drabble (100 words exactly). Anyone who wants to participate replies to this post with another drabble containing one of the sentences or phrases from the original drabble. The subject line should be the words you took. The next person should continue the trend, stealing a sentence or phrase and beginning their own.

Any particular drabble can be drawn from as many times as you want. If you don't feel like posting 100 words exactly, that's OK. Near-drabbles of approximately 100 words are fine too. It's about having fun, not exact definitions. ;)

FIC: Fetish

Title: Fetish

Author: Princess Lauren

Rating: PG

Summary: Short, wildly OOC (or is it?) ficlet. Cat/Lister implied, Rimmer/Lister also implied (am taking bets on how many people will want to see this continued). The first bit was inspired by seeing my cat Cedric playing with a piece of string; the rest comes from the odd semantic connections that form my mind. My first RD slash one-shot since 2004, so forgive me if it's a bit rough.

Dedication: To [livejournal.com profile] fiareynne, as ever.

Fetish. )
