This post started life as a fic rec, so I’ll do that bit first:

Round And Round by [livejournal.com profile] janszy is a wonderful story of what happened to Gene after the final scene of Ashes to Ashes (spoilers, obviously). It’s extremely well written and although I hadn’t seen the author’s work before, it was immediately plain that she was an experienced writer. Do go and read it – it’s masterful, truly.

So that brings me on to the next bit – a comm rec. I know a lot of people have moved on from Life on Mars by now, and by no means everyone stuck it out to the end of Ashes, the early stages of series one being what they were, but if you want to write LOM-fic where it is known whether Sam is mad, in a coma or back in time, or Ashes fic where Sam and Annie are mentioned, there is only one comm – as far as I know – that you can post it to. That comm is [livejournal.com profile] ashes2life.

Anyone who has spent any time at The Railway Arms, [livejournal.com profile] lifein1973 or [livejournal.com profile] a2ashes, will know that what might have been seen as the captive audience for A2A – the LOM fans – were by no means unanimous in their verdict on the new show, and that the Gene/Alex fans who bought into series one of Ashes were in some cases quite visceral in their hatred of Sam.

So if you’d like to discuss Sam without some Galexer telling you that the very mention of his name is insulting to Alex, or you want to talk about Ashes without someone who’s only seen two episodes complaining that it’s badly acted (oh please - 2.07? 3.08?) , do it at [livejournal.com profile] ashes2life!

Also, if you want to write an Ashes fic where Gene/Alex is not inevitable and OTP – one where Gene actually remembers Sam, for example; or a LOM-fic which alludes to the nature of the universe as defined by Ashes to Ashes; or a fic where Alex and Maya meet (oh, somebody please write that!); you might be wanting a comm to post it in, and that comm is [livejournal.com profile] ashes2life.

Set up and maintained by [livejournal.com profile] lozenger8, the comm is there for all the good stuff that would get flamed or deleted at the series-specific comms.

(By the way, in my personal and humble opinion, it’s best not to worry too much about the - to me at least - intimidatingly intellectual flavour of the user-info page. You don't have to write brilliant meta to qualify, although it would be great if someone did. While fanfic is the very last thing mentioned in the community profile, it is definitely allowed and welcome!)

To sum up: if you’ve seen both shows and are happy to buy in, occasionally at least, to the idea that LOM and Ashes both take place in the same universe, [livejournal.com profile] ashes2life is the place to go.

Title: Fantasy Lover (Survival Series)
Characters and Pairings: Annie pov, Sam/Gene, fantasy Annie/Gene
Word Count: 1,400 approx
Warning: Fantasy het!sex
Summary: Even unshaven in a drunken sleep he had the feral essence of pure sex.
A/N: This started as something quite different, but Annie took over. Possibly my first wank!fic, and certainly my first female one. (Concrit welcome!) I’d hoped to post in time for Porntober, but RL ensured that I even missed Pervember. Maybe we could consider it my entry for Sexbycember. The scene takes place immediately after The Only One.

Title:  Revelation

Author: DorsetGirl

Fandom: Life on Mars / Ashes to Ashes

Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters or their universe. BBC/Kudos do. I’m not making any money out of this.

Rating: Blue Cortina for a little language and non-graphic sex

Pairing: Past Gene/Jackie; possible past Sam/Gene; NO GENE/ALEX

Word Count:  1800 approx

Summary: Big spoilery thing for A2A 2.04

A/N: I wrote this fic after Ashes to Ashes 2.01, and at the time I put in the notes “Now with new, improved, series two Alex Drake.”  With 2.02 we saw a return to the yearning looks and meaningful silences, but for the purposes of this story I’m sticking with 2.01 Alex rather than 2.02 - Matt and Ash may know how to put together a story arc, but they don’t exactly have form on creating convincing and consistent character arcs across a series. Finally, I do know I haven’t got much of a grip on Alex’s inner voice, but I’ve been wanting to incorporate her enigmatic comment to Gene (“Someone fell in love with you once”) into a fic ever since she said it, and this situation seemed a good vehicle. Posting in a hurry because it will no doubt be jossed in just a few hours!
