Happy St Patrick's Day! :D (Still struggling with the infinite colour codes - anyone know the code for a good mid or dark green that isn't dirty?)

I can haz interwebz again! Yay! :D (Though it still has issues with YouTube and Tumblr and images generally. Le sigh.)

The Professionals historical AU plot-bunnies are multiplying like, well, bunnies.

- CI5 in the Civil War (due to LC in Cavalier dress)
- CI5 in Tudor Times (Thomas Cromwell, Francis Walsingham etc had their spies, plus there were all the traitors and rligious changes and plots/revolts/uprisings)
- Bodie and Doyle in Poldark-ian 18thC Cornwall
            ... or maybe London (Molly Houses and all that)... or Norfolk... or what about other times in the 18thC... What about Doyle as a Hogarthian painter/engraver...
- Bodie and Doyle + Turnip Townshend, Norfolk Crop Rotation and the Agricultural Revolution Just been pwned for being boring.
- CI5 and the early 19thC - Luddites, Chartists, Peterloo etc...

But I'm keeping an "Ideas" notebook and not letting myself get distracted from the three ideas I'm already developing for the Big Bang.

How are *you* doing?

Happy St Patrick's Day to you too - and even better, happy interwebz back! And come to that, happy plot bunnies, because they're always fun!

This site has a nice colour-code picker, if that's any help. The other thing I do is use GIMP (I think you've mentioned that you use that before?) to tell me the code for colours I like via the eyedropper...

Thank you!

And *thank you*! Yes! That site is just what I wanted! :D (And no, I don't use GIMP, never even heard of it before, so you are not thinking of me. Sorry.)

I like the sound of your multiplying plot bunnies!

And re fandom ... I'm pretty conflict-averse myself, but I would definitely say that [- while yes, it's certainly the case that individual subgroups have evolved/laid down their own rules and yes, it's also the case that there are some overarching courtesies that pretty much everyone in fandom abides by (or should) (and they're only the obvious ones, such as no unauthorised use of real names; no passing off whole fics or massive chunks of 'em as one's own unattributed; abide by local warning and spoiler conventions) -] all that being said, anyone and everyone has as much right to enjoy playing in the sandpit as anyone else. I know that a sort of no-negative-criticisms convention has emerged, and I do see the point of it (easy for people to get knocked down hard when maybe all they wanted was a bit of shared squee) but clearly there's also a desire to share concrit and/or negative opinions, hence the occasional emergence of spaces specifically designated for that. I agree it is tricky sometimes ... and I absolutely respect your self-care and decision not to wade into the more turbulent waters. But I hope it doesn't put you off; anyone whose mind is brimming with bunnies belongs here!
