The Tarnished Mirror of the World

strangeumbrellaOct. 29th, 2007 12:28 am Fic: It's Grim Up North

I joined this community ages ago and never posted, presumably because I suck. It seems to have been a bit quiet round here lately, but I hope people are still out there. Hello! I bring Prior fic, if it helps; although it's a crossover with Life On Mars, it is set in the Regeneration universe, and so I hope it still makes some sense without much knowledge of the former. Fake cut to my journal.

Title: It's Grim Up North
Fandom: Life On Mars/Regeneration
Pairing: Sam/Prior
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Sam is out of his time; Prior might as well be.
Word Count: ~1900
Disclaimer: Nothing is mine.

( Sam notices the cold, mostly. )

washu_bellanaMay. 17th, 2007 11:08 am greetings! Room for one more?

Hello everyone!
Im new here (as you have probably guessed!) and I have been extremely interested in WW1 poetry/prose since completeing a module on it for my A levels about 2 years ago. My favourite poet is Wilfred Owen (closely followed by Siegfried Sassoon, Charles Sorley and Isaac Rosenberg) though I love them all. But especially Owen. He is the best and as many people who know me know, I would always make time for him and his poetry.
I would love to get to know you all and discuss the poetry and the pity.

"[Major Lode] had once told Prior in, of all places, the Cafe Royal, 'This country is being brought to its knees. Not by Germany ' - here he'd thumped the table so hard that the plates and cutlery had leapt into the air - ' NOT BY GERMANY, but by an unholy alliance of socialists, sodomites and shop stewards.' Prior had felt scarcely able to comment, never having been a shop steward."

I love the Regeneration trilogy.

It's late enough for me to misread 'Join the R.A.F Gunners' as 'Join the R.A.F Giraffes'. I think that rather speaks for itself.

So yes - sorry in advance for gross grammatical errors/typos/general whatnot. I am rather sleepy.

'Loose Ties'.
Soft R, I suppose.
Regeneration & Journey's End crossover, though more focused on the former...

Billy Prior/Denis Stanhope, with another implied...

The trickiest thing about Craiglockhart...Collapse )

Hello chaps, I'm new... :D

To demonstrate my love for Prior and the fact that I really really need a cookie Regeneration in general, I've come offering a few colourbars. None of which are very good.

But, you know, might be quite funky if you wanted to link them back to tarnishedmirror.

Both of Prior, I'm afraid - obsessed prat I am!

...I've just realised I didn't save the original - that is, without the Union Jack or the poppy fields. Ah well. I'll do it again. *FACEPALM*

Comment/credit somewhere, if you do plan on taking one... ♥

*Slinks back off to her hole in the ground*

Oh, incidentally... I've kept all the little pictures, if anyone wants 'em for icons or whatever.

Right. That's IT from me.

It has just occured to me that, because of what it will evolve into, I'd better post this in here. I know part I appear irrelevant, but trust me, it improves...
not mine...several poems belonging t Sassoon, all charcters included belonging to themselves
P/C with forrays into S/O!!!

Prelude: The TroopsCollapse )

wait for part two before poking me, ok??
Or, better, part three

Well, I keep leaving parts of people scattered across Guns of Brixton, so thought I'd better chuck the links in here...
It has, I'm sad to say, no WW1 characters, but a certain amount of fascinated quoting of them from Peter

Part One

Part Two

Part Three



is my excuse for the shameless quoting

*stops pimping*
*runs off to find Prior*

snow_queen_loveJun. 21st, 2005 04:27 pm A Home at the End of the World

A Home at the End of the World - Michael Cunningham. This book has nothing to do with the First World War at all. That doesn't stop it being beautifully told and a gorgeous love story though. It's melancholy and really hurts at times, but it's wonderful. It's the story of three people 'living life without a blueprint.' They're outsiders, they don't 'fit' into conventional roles society has. It spans a number of years, following first of all Bobby and Jonathan and then also Clare. Their lives are intertwined and there's love.

QuotesCollapse )

I love this novel. It reminds me a lot of Douglas Coupland's 'Generation X' with the three characters not really feeling part of society and having a removed sort of life together. The scenes between Bobby and Jonathon are perfect at times, painful at others. Their friendship and love is incredibly believable. It's definitely worth reading.

Current Music: random 80s stuff
