I meant to write this post last week, but then I got busy at work, I got more tired, left it for the weekend and then it was too hot to be using computers.

While the Olympics was on, [info]not_primetime went live. It was supposed to go live during Wimbledon* but got put back. It meant that I had no idea what I'd asked for, so it took me a while to find my fic. Somehow I did manage to find time to read the fics in the collection, once the Olympic swimming and tennis had finished.

The one I wrote is Lost For Words, which is Sarah-centric with the Third and Fourth Doctors. When I wrote it I kept thinking of all sorts of things I could say about writing it based on the prompt I got. But I wrote it in May/June and consequently can't remember any of it.

The next ficathon to go live is [info]shipswap which handily goes live during the Paralympics. And swimming lasts the whole of the Paralympics, as does the US Open. So reading the fics might have to wait until after the authors are revealed and the sporting events for the summer are over. Not to mention the summer, where did it go?

*Dates are meaningless when there are sporting events to use instead

Dear Rare Ship Swap Writer

Dear Rare Ship Swap Writer,

Thank you for writing a story for me. The optional details are optional. I've just tried to give you some ideas of what I might like to see, but if none of them are your thing feel free to disregard them. I am sure I will love anything you write with the pairing(s) I've requested, after all, they're rare and there should be more fic with those pairings in.

I'd rather no other pairings were included - the ones not listed I either don't ship or are big pairings that you see a lot and I'd prefer the fic be about whichever rare pairing you're writing.

What I like:
- Stories that explore the relationships between characters
- Stories that explore characters
- Scenes/fic that is like it could be (part of) an episode
- UST (you can't go wrong with a bit of UST)
- One kiss or one touch being as sexy as a whole sex scene

What I dislike:
- Sex scenes, so nothing over PG-13 please
- British people using Americanisms and American people using Briticisms
- Crack - unless it's aliens made them do it, which I love, but having read so much of it I'd prefer a different take on it (eg what it is aliens made them do or finding a way round not doing it)
- Pet names
- Cheating/adultery
- Shipping involving the Doctor, or anyone having romantic feelings for him (except for Martha) or him having romantic feelings for anyone

Below are my prompts:
