arnie1967: (Heart - Locked)
[personal profile] arnie1967


My journal is now partly friends-locked. My locked posts are usually just personal ones, but my finished fanfic (which I post under the name of 'Dimity Blue') is posted unlocked here.

New friends are welcome so if you'd like to read, please comment here and let me know.

If you'd like to friend me just to keep up on my fanfic or my advent calendars, feel free! Just drop me a line if you'd like me to friend you back or I'll assume you're just popping by for fic!

Note: If you're looking for Arnie or Arnie1967, that's me! I just fancied a name change. :oD

Please may I friend you? I love your TS stories (& even sent fb a while ago, though not on lj) & am eagerly awaiting a new one. "Alas, Poor Fargo" nearly disgraced me (my own fault for reading it at work), but I'm especially fond of your AU ones :)

Hey, a Professionals fan too! I've recently got the first 4 seasons of that.

I'm glad you like my fic, thanks. There are a few short stories (usually very silly ones) scattered through my LJ. If you follow the link to my website (on my profile and at the top of this page) they're posted on there too.

Hope you enjoy the Pros dvds! I got them a couple of years ago, & got totally hooked (last time I saw them was the original screening). I had great fun squealing about how dated the cars look - not a problem for me with US shows of the same era, as I'd never be able to date an American car by its appearance, but wait until you see some of the police cars - they look antiquated! Maybe you'll be tempted to join us Pros writers in due course...

I found your short snippets & enjoyed them a lot - can't have too much a good thing!

Oh, and did I see that you're a Chalet School fan? Me too! It took me about 2 decades, but I've finally got the whole lot, so I was fascinated to see that it might be possible to get the original rather than the cut-down versions now.

You might want to sit down for this next bit. Somewhere, I came across a Pros/Chalet School crossover, & it was a riot! Completely daft, but hysterically funny in a toe-curling ("limp, grey, and to all appearance, dead") kind of way. If you're intrigued, I'll see if I can track it down, but I quite understand if the whole idea strikes you as completely weird!

You're kidding me! A Pros/CS crossover? Was it gen? If so, I'd love to read it. Yes, I'm a CS fan too - have been since I was 14. I love the CS quote you included too! I always think of the Emerence and Mary Lou sledding scene over that, though I know EBD used it at least one other time.

Talking of Mary Lou, I've just got Three Go to the CS, the uncut version. It's practically unbelievable how much gets cut out. There's a whole subplot about Gillian Linton meeting Clem's Godfather, Peter Young, and getting engaged to him. The Armada version skipped that out completlely!

If you're interested, Girls Gone By publishers are here:

http://www.ggbp.co.uk/

I have mine on standing pre-order with a supplier as it's £1 cheaper per book that way. Also, I don't have to worry about missing a book because I forgot it was coming out. :oD

Btw, do you write gen or slash Pros? I know most of the writers are slash but I really can't see the guys that way at all. Where are your fics posted?

It really does exist - would I dream something like that? But, of course, I can't track the wretched thing down at the moment. I'm fairly sure it was gen, but my quick search through the main archives hasn't thrown anything up. If I manage to track it down and it is gen, I'll send you the link.

Thanks for the link to Girls Gone By - I shall definitely investigate that. I think I recall some mention in a later book about Gillian Linton marrying Clem's godfather (is he a doctor, by any chance?) but it would be nice to have more details. That phrase has become a standing joke for my daughter & me - she's read them all too, at least twice. I think the Armada sabotage which most irritated me was the CS Fete/A Genius at the CS debacle - the editions I've got don't even make sense, with scenes from one half-term mixed up with scenes from the other, all out of sequence. Drives me mad!

My Pros stuff (not much of it!) is mostly at http://www.thecircuitarchive.com - two of the stories are slash (though very mild), but the one called "Brightly Shone the Moon" isn't.

I couldn't see it at first, but then, after immersing myself in gen for quite a while, I strayed across the line, read some terrific stories and am now a convert, although I still love a good gen story too. Bifictional, that's me!

Thanks for the link to your Pros fic. I'll have fun reading that!

They haven't republished CS Fete or Genius yet. As they were originally (if I remember rightly) one book, that should be an interesting book to read! Armada really messed with some books - the full version of School at the Chalet was double the width of the ordinary Armada one.

As for Peter Young, he was not, for once (how many of them married doctors?!), a doctor - he was an artist. I'm sure in one of the later books he donates a painting to the school or is offered a commission to paint Madame's portrait.

Hey sweetie, did you post a saying someone else wrote. It had something funny to do with men and women and what they do if they're right or wrong?

I'd sent it to a friend and she lost it, now I can't find my copy. Post it again please?

I went looking through the posts I'd tagged with funny. I'm not sure if I've found it but this could be what you were looking for. Maybe?

Or there's this, but I don't think that was it.

If the first wasn't it but you remember anything more about it, let me know and I'll look again. Okay?

Hello! Huge fan of your Sentinel Fanfiction. I was hoping you'd add me so I could read your fanfiction?

Hi! Actually, my fanfic is usually posted unlocked, so you can read it now. It's all tagged by fandom, with 'fic' at the beginning. Like "Fic: The Sentinel". All my tags are listed on the left.

If you'd still like me to friend you, I will, but if you're just here for the fic, that's unlocked anyway! :oD

I got an e-mail saying you had de-friended me. Is it something I have done? or are you just clearing out your LJ. Whatever the case that's ok.

Hi Christine,

I've been clearing out people who seem to have moved on from LJ. I thought you'd stopped posting.

I'll add you again since you're still around. :o)

I found you through Lessa Perre, and your name caught my interest-it's an interesting name! (Blue is also my favorite color, thanks to the TARDIS on Doctor Who, and it also happens to be my birthstone-technically, my birthstone is Sapphire, but that's a type of blue, right? XD)

You're fics in SGA are what I'm most interested in, and White Collar too. I'd very much like to read stuff, if you don't mind, and I can leave comments/reviews when done. :)

Nice to meet you, and I like how your journal looks-it's very pretty! :D

Thanks! 'Dimity' is one of the bells mentioned in DL Sayers' "The Nine Tailors", and blue just seemed to go with it. And yes, sapphire counts as a type of blue for me. :oD

My SGA fic is posted here and it isn't friends locked. It's also posted on AO3. I haven't written any White Collar, sorry.

Here's my SGA fic on AO3. If you check out my tags on the left of my page, my SGA fic is under 'Fic: SGA'.

If you'd still like to friend me and be friended in return, just let me know. Either way, I hope you enjoy my SGA fic. :o)

I've read at least three of your SGA fics now, and rather like them-I rather enjoyed the crossover one with Captain Jack. ;)

I'd very much like being friends, if it's alright. I could always use more friends in the SGA fandom, especially those with a good sense of humor.

Also: It seems that everyone has read DL Sayers but me. I've been hearing references to the author alot lately, are they really good?

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the stories. Captain Jack's such a fun character, isn't he?

I'm not really active in the SGA fandom. I read some fic, and I'm hoping to finish more SGA fic at some point, but that's about all. I like the series though. *hopes it counts* Anyway, I've friended you back so you might feel it's too late to run. :oD

As for DL Sayers, I think her books are really good and well worth reading. Most of them are set in the 20s and 30s, and feature Lord Peter Wimsey as the hero. My favourites are Murder Must Advertise (where he goes under cover in an advertising firm to catch a murderer), Have His Carcase (the woman he loves discovers a dead body on a beach), and Busman's Honeymoon (he and Harriet finally marry...and promptly stumble over a dead body in their honeymoon house).

Harriet Vane first appears in Strong Poison where she's on trial for murder, though Peter's convinced she's innocent. If you decide to read any of the Harriet books, you might want to start with that one.

As an aside, apparently DL Sayers spent some years working in an advertising firm, so Murder Must Advertise is fascinating (to me, anyway) as that's what an actual advertising firm was like. Well, without the blackmail and murder. :oD
