This is a public service announcement for any fans of Doctor Who.

I'm not sure why it should be a public service announcement, come to think of it, but I can't think of a better word, so there it is.

It is simply this: Captain Jack Harkness, whom we know and love, has an extremely close literary forebear, ie someone was doing some sneaky "borrowing" of some nearly-hundred-year-old literature.

Oh, I am serious. )

As you may or may not be aware, Watson has been writing some adventure romance fiction, because he needs something to do. And I've posted a snippet or two, but this is something I have actually been writing on the side. Not all of it, because honestly, I think everything I know about 19th century India I learned from Kipling, But I've been writing snippets, as they occur to me, and this is the total of what has been written. So far.

Why do I do this? Damned if I know.

It has no title, but the file is called 'indian adventure.doc.' )

I thought of this randomly tonight, went to look it up, and smirked at it a bit, particularly at the translated poetry involved. For some reason I own a copy of "The Thousand Nights and One Night (Volume II)" and I recalled a very short story in it which basically comes down to a debate between a wise sage and a learned woman about whether or not it's better for a man to be attracted towards men or women.

I was compelled to then type it up painstakingly and probably nobody will read it but eh, here it is anyway. It is not really pro-gay. It's not exactly anti-gay either. It is, however, pretty sexist in bits, fair warning.

Girls or Boys? )
