miss_s_b: (Blogging: Mod hat)
... I am finally deleting all traces of myself from LJ. A ready reckoner for those uninformed about the situation can be found here, if you're at all interested.

If you've had the urge to migrate here from LJ yourself, do comment below, especially if you're someone I know well. I made the move years ago, and while I do miss some aspects of LJ, there's loads that's better here, I promise.

The other thing you'll notice is that I'm migrating stuff over which I wrote, so there's going to be a few posts in the next hour or so. Hopefully I won't swamp any RSS feeds.

Everything else I found had already been brought over.

I feel oddly sad, given that I hadn't even logged in to LJ in 2 years, and not posted there in 8. Ah well.

Title: An Unlikely Alliance
Rating: U
Prompt: Tarot Card #22: the Three of Wands
Era: Post-Doomsday, in the universe of Mickey, Rose, Pete and Jackie
Spoilers: None that I can think of.
Word Count: 1139
Notes: When this challenge was posted, I knew little of tarot (I now have my own deck and am learning fast and finding it fascinating), but I knew that a fair few members of my F-list knew about it, so I posted a "Help! What the hell do I do with the three of wands?" post. Somebody mentioned that one of this card's meanings can be "an unlikely alliance" and that reminded me of this plotbunny, which had been bouncing around my head for a while. Because the basic idea is a riff on [profile] tinuvielberen's superb and beautifully realised Doomsday Dimensions universe, I asked her to beta it. Many, many thanks to her for her insightful comments. The other acknowledgement I should give is to [profile] tweedygirl. I'm the long-term beta on her ongoing fic Paradigm Destiny, and it was in reading that fic that I first realised how well these two characters compliment each other.

This stands on its own, but it might end up having sequels. It's a beginning, definitely.

So, having read through the expenses regulations for federal committee members, I'm going to say two things:

1, I can see why they don't get many applicants from outside London or from the less-monied classes. I need written permission from the chair of my committee to claim for accommodation? Seriously? I live in Yorkshire, dudes. It's a two day meeting. What am I supposed to do, pick a bench outside King's Cross? FFS.

2, Any Londinium types, if you have a spare room that I could have for the evenings of Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th of January, I would be most grateful. Because I cannot afford central London prices for a hotel on the off chance that the party might deign to reimburse me. And I'm NOT staying in a mixed dormitory for 12 people, which appears to be my only option to stick within budget even if I DID assume permission from the chair.

At least I'll be able to claim back for my train ticket…

UPDATE: Have now obtained crash space with a fellow committee member, thanks all xx
