Why This Must Be Read:

In this short fic, Cofax gives us a wonderful look at Sam Carter at the very beginning, freshly back from Chulak after the events of "Children of the Gods," and realizing what becoming a field officer will truly demand. I love early-series SG-1 fics that look at the formation of the team, but this one stands out because it's just Sam, tired, sore, and recalibrating her own standards for herself. Sam's grim struggles with her shoelaces capture the brilliance and determination that make her who she is, at the same time as they invite us to reconsider the episode in terms of her physical experiences. Instant headcanon!

Snippet of fic:

An Air Force captain is fit, strong, always ready for duty. Five times a week, Sam runs five miles. She lifts weights, stretches, takes the occasional aerobics class. She can defend herself hand-to-hand and with a wide array of weapons.

Rec Category: Alternate Universe - specifically, fairy-tale type AUs
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex,  Elizabeth Weir, Radek Zelenka, Michael, Jeannie Miller, Lucius Lavin, Acastus Kolya

Why This Must Be Read: This is a charming and engaging story, and what I love most is how wonderfully in-character everyone is, despite the fairy-tale AU format. Rodney, especially, is utterly himself, even transformed into a fox - as the excerpt below shows. A delightful read.

Why This Must Be Read: Jack is turned into a dog. This story is just so much fun.

Snippet: “O’Neill will not kill you, Daniel Jackson,” Teal’c said. “He is a dog.” There was that slight deviation in his tone, the one that - accompanied by the subtle twitching of the corners of his mouth - meant he was secretly laughing his ass off. Daniel threw his hands up in the air. “Dogs kill people every single day!”

Hello, beloved swappers! Don’t worry, swaps IS happening, as always! Sign-ups post will go up, ummmm, soon. I meant to kick us off around the beginning of the month, but #life #got overwhelmed by the idea of needing to rewrite this FAQ, tbh. Sorry!

This year! We have moved to Dreamwidth, because Yuletide has moved to Dreamwidth, and because it seems like most of our constituency has done the same. We will probably continue to crosspost to the Yuletide LJ community in some capacity, linking back to DW posts and providing a forum for LJ-only swappers to continue to ask questions and make contact when their yahoo emails inevitably fail. ;)

Tags will remain the same: “omnomnom” for candyswap, “who likes books” for bookswap, and “nice cuppa” for drinkswap (er, just as soon as I'm able to request their creation on DW). As on LJ, we strongly encourage swappers to track tags for the swaps they are interested in.

(Go to your DW Account Settings >> Notifications afterward, to make sure all the tags you wanted definitely took!)

And now…onward!

FAQ! )

But seriously, when are sign-ups going to be open for Yuleswaps 2017?

Soon, I swear. Tonight, I hope, but realistically, might be more like tomorrow or Tuesday. I will get it together. I promise. Swaps will happen.

Happy swapping, swappers!!!!

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

FANDOM: The Thick of It / BBC Sherlock
FIC LINK: Red Right Hand
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] jackmarlowe
RATING/WARNING(S): G | swearing
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 1001 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Malcolm Tucker, C.A. Magnussen, Mycroft Holmes

FIC SUMMARY: When Mycroft Holmes decides to do business with the country's rising media mogul, he chooses a middleman who knows something about government and the papers. Malcolm Tucker is not best pleased.

RECCER'S NOTES: Very well-written, short, very unsettling. Will stay in your head for much longer than it takes you to read either it or this rec, so get to it. A truly excellent crossover.

Does not require knowledge of both fandoms, but for Sherlock fans: Malcolm Tucker is terrifying Glaswegian press officer for Number 10. TTOI fans: Mycroft Holmes "occupies a minor position in the British Government". (This is a lie.) Magnussen is a blackmailing media mogul.

How old is Peter Grant?

We should be able to figure this out.  Or, at least, someone with more knowledge of British school systems and police should be able to figure this out.

Midnight Riot/Rivers of London was published in 2011.  Let's assume that what was happening in that book takes place in 2011.  (I don't think we have any evidence to the contrary?)

At that point, he has just completed his two years of being a probationary constable, which means he started in 2009.
Hendon training courses seem to last about a month, so still 2009.

British secondary education confuses me, so I'm not really sure what you would call what Peter did, but I'm assuming he finished at age 18 or so, and went straight from there to Hendon.  This would mean he would have been born in, what, 1991?

Can someone who knows more about British stuff than I do reassure me that I'm not missing something?

Oh, God, he's a baby!

ETA: According to the Word of God, Peter was 25 at the start of RoL.  Which would have him born in 1986, and then begs the questions what he was doing between Hendon at age 23 and being done with his schooling at age 18.  There's five years unaccounted for.  All told, it was probably something terribly boring--working some low-end job somewhere?

The thing about that, though, is that I wonder what it was.  He spends a lot of time empathizing with people and noting what various jobs are like and/or what their perspective is, and in all that time he's never indicated that HE used to do that job.  I mean, he might have joined his mum as a cleaner, but then all the times he evaluates a cleaning job with a professional eye surely he would remember it instead of his mum's job which he occasionally helped with as a child.  And it can't have been a paperwork job--beginning secretary, or something--because he would probably have mentioned it when he was dreading going into the CPU.

Peter's just so chatty, with so many digressions inside his head, I just can't imagine him coming across a job he used to do in the course of any of the stories and not mentioning "oh, hey, I know what that is like ..."
