Hullo, hullo, hullo!

I've been lurking on this wonderful community for about a year, since I discovered the world of Jeeves and Wooster, but until now I've been too shy to introduce myself ;)
So, here I am; I got into the Jeeves's stories via the Torchwood fandom, watched the TV adaptation and I'm still working my way through the books; I've recently finished Joy in the Morning :)
I've actually worked up the courage to post now because many moons ago I started to write my very own Jooster fanfic and, since English is not my first language, I would really appreciate the help of a Beta Reader, would anyone like to volounteer?
Toodle Pip,
Cohava

Hello, dear friends! This is my first time posting, although I've been following for quite some time. I told myself I was not allowed to post until I had read EVERY entry in the entire archive. Well, something like a year later, I've done it and here I am! I feel as though I know many of you well, having watch your evolution over the past decade plus, and if I forget myself and act like I do, please forgive me. This community is a delight.

After this long journey, one thing remains unsatisfied: there is a work out there that has had its praises sung near and far that, despite my pretty fabulous Google fu, remains forever elusive:

Cornette's Twelve-Pager by Careena

It's like a plague now. I've read all the big name works, the vast majority of the others, and this one piece just taunts me. Can anyone help?

If I've gone afoul of your policy, I am sincerely sorry.

With very much love and affection,
MF

Summary Inspiration:
" VIRGIN TERRITORY All innocent Caitlin Delany Reginald Jeeves wanted was to spread her his wings away from home in his new life as a valet and begin life fresh. But from the moment she laid eyes on sexy, bumbling Drone, Bertram Wilberforce Woosterswaggering rancer Zach Haller, she lost his her heart. She He knew she had no business falling for a man who'd sworn off commitment, yet he was the man she  he wanted to change his her status as the last virgin in the Junior Ganymede Club Texas. Of course, Bertie’s Zach's cowboy Wooster code of honor put young, inexperienced valets womenstrictly off-limits. But Reggie’s Caitlin's provocative innocence brought the confirmed bachelor to his knees. In fact, resisting her  those virginal charms - and the temptation to wed him her and bed him her - was proving impossible... .

Hello! I'm new to this fandom. I've watched the series a couple of times and I'm currently reading the books out loud to my sister. I've never really been able to finish writing a fanfiction, so I only have scraps of different Jeeves and Wooster fanfiction. I can make music videos however.

Hello, I'm quite new to LJ, but I've been lurking in this community for a long time. And this is my first post ever in LJ or in this community, so forgive me if I done wrong. You can call me Stefan, anyway.
Actually, I came here looking for a fic, yet I don't remember the author nor the title, and I vaguely remember the plot.
But I remember that the fic goes Jeeves getting some fever, and Bertie panicked, Aunt Dahlia asked them to move to Brinkley Court temporary until Jeeves recover. Bertie won't leaves Jeeves' side, one of the maid try to make a move with Jeeves, story goes, Bertie ended up sleeping in Jeeves room and in the next morning Jeeves give him advice to escape his room with some wheeze to avoid suspicion.
Ring any bell? Please help finding this fic, thank you all.

Howdy, y'all.

Not a very Wodehouseian greeting, I know, but that's the way we roll in my neck of the woods. I'm a recent convert to the loveliness that is the general Jeevesian universe. I've seen the Fry & Laurie TV version and am working my way through the short stories and some fanfic. Perhaps someday I'll get through the entire canon and feel a need to write some fic of my own. In the meantime, I thought I'd say "Hello" and drop off a couple of links that might be of interest to the comm.

First is a new one that could be useful for background info for writers and perhaps artists. An Op-Ed from the recent New York Times Sunday Review discusses hand signals used by owners and staff of upscale restaurants to communicate silently. I rather suspect that many large manor houses of the type Bertie frequently visits with Jeeves in tow would have had similar means of communication in use by the staff. Even if the examples here aren't perfect due to imperfect era and setting, I thought they might provide food for thought.
Sign Dining

The second link is to an older piece that might have already been discussed here, in which case I apologize for the repeat, but my searching hasn't turned up anything. If anyone is familiar with the comic book series (or the movie) The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen or with H. P. Lovecraft's tales of Cthulhu, there was a text-only story in an issue of the comic that blends the League and Cthulhu with Jeeves and Bertie's world that is absolutely fantastic. The rest of the explanation with details for those unfamiliar with The League and / or Lovecraft is a bit complicated, so what say I hide it behind this cut. )

I love this little story, but I realize that on the Venn diagram of fans of Jeeves and Wooster, fans of Lovecraft, and fans of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the point of overlap for all three is going to be relatively small. For anyone else who happens to be at that intersection point or crazy enough to give something totally random a try, a complete scan of the story:
What Ho, Gods of the Abyss OMG I love that title!

What ho, all!  I don't know if this is allowed, since I'm new here and all, but....  If it's not, just let me know and I'll be good from now on.  *innocent face*

I have two reasons for defying my usual Proud Lurker status.  1. Introduce myself.  Hence the 'what ho, all' at the beginning of the post.  Ahem, I'm waseom, I'm 24, I'm a girl.  That covers the pertinent information, yes?

2.  I have a plot bunny I don't want.  I feel really bad about this, as it's a rather cute little bunny, as opposed to the rabid Monty Python and the Holy Grail-type monster plot bunnies that usually have their fangs in me.  However, as cute as it may be, I don't have time to write it, so I thought I would offer it up to one of the brilliant minds here.

The premise is this:  During an otherwise pleasant sexual encounter, Bertie displays a here-to-fore unknown phobia of being tied down.  As Bertie agreed to this beforehand, Jeeves is understandably confused.  They must work to get to the bottom of Bertie's issues.

And that's that.  Very simple.  I had vague ideas of it somehow being Aunt Agatha's fault (because everything is Aunt Agatha's fault), but nothing really coalesced out of the ether, and of course if anyone adopts it they can take it in whatever direction they please.  Any takers?  *pathetic pleading face*

What ho, all. I've been devouring the fic and art in this fandom since I stumbled across it, and I'm just blown away by everyone's talent, and thought I ought to delurk and say hi.

The other reason I'm delurking is to ask for a beta for a fic. I had wanted to have it as an introductory gift of sorts, but I don't feel comfortable posting it unbetaed. It's a bit of pre-slashy fluff, just over 1000 words, Bertie POV, and already written up. I mostly need someone to advise me on my Bertie-voice and brit-pick, but would obviously appreciate someone who could double-check it for typos and spelling and whatnot.

I have been lurking at this community for  a very long time and was inspired to make a lj account for this fandom. Allow me to introduce myself: I am a 23 year old grad student and long-time reader Wodehouse who has been spending her evenings when not immersed in studies roaming the internet in search of Jooster fanfiction. I am utterly floored by the quality of the writers who post on indeedsir. Thank you for the hours of reading and relaxation!

I decided to come out of hiding for two reasons: 1., to express how impressed I am with the sophistication and dedication in this fandom, and 2., to request a beta reader for a fiction I hope to have at least well underway in time for Halloween.  I had intended to write my first piece as a more-or-less conventional bit of lighthearted Jooster fare, but I was oddly inspired and have begun planning something a bit... dark. For those of you who don't mind AU, tragedy and ghost stories and are willing to provided editorial and moral support for this impending monstrosity of a fic, please send me a message and I'll tell you more. If you don't want to work on it once I've given you the general outline, feel free to tell me to go boil my head. :-) Toodle-pip.

Hello my lovely Jooster-friends. Actually this is a rather sheepish and shameful return after many, many months absence. What makes this crime so appalling is that I started 2 fics and never completed either of them.

What can I say? Sometimes real-life hits you over the head. Sometimes you get depressed. Sometimes you just get into other stuff for a while (like this spring I became a total Kish (Kyle Lewis/Oliver Fish) fan, which is slightly embarrassing to admit to those used to Wodehouse's quality of writing). And then sometimes it just gets hard to finish things that you start, especially when you're ridiculously perfectionist.

But I do have something on the way that will perhaps buy some forgiveness. It's the first chapter of The Beginning, a prequel to my What Aunt Dahlia Saw series.

This whole story has come out in a funny order - George Lucas-like, I started in the middle. It's taking the form of a sort of trilogy - the part that's already written when Aunt D. first gets involved, the prequel to all that, and then the conclusion, picking up from where part one left off. Complicated, I know, but that's just how the thing has evolved. So I think we're going to have What Aunt Dahlia Saw, then The Beginning, and finally *Title To Be Determined* - all under the What Aunt Dahlia Saw umbrella, so to speak.

I wasn't going to submit any more to this series until I'd finished writing the whole thing - but I changed my mind on this. It's still not finished and I don't know how much of a gap there will be between chapters - but it's time to just admit that the only way is to get chapters out there when I can.

So - here I am again, and the fic will be posted shortly (in the next ten minutes or so).

Hallo, hallo, hallo! This is my first proper Jaunt into writing anything for Jeeves and Wooster, however it is certainly not my first jaunt into Wodehouse's wonderful world. I suppose I'm a bit nervous that I've gone and caused several massive environmental disasters, because I'm sure old Plum is spinning in his grave right about now. The reason I'm posting this in parts is because it's my first legitimate fic in this fandom, and I am in desperate need (or rather, want) of a beta.

Deep breaths, here we go.

Title: Jeeves and The Children's Charity Ball (Chapter 1)
Author: tin_antiquity
Pairing: Bertie/Jeeves
Rating: G? PG? I dunno. *shrug* 
Words: 1839
Summary: Bingo has fallen head over heels once again, and this time, it's Bertie's help he needs, no Jeeveses need apply. This necessitates wibble!Bertie, dance lessons and reminiscing. 
Disclaimer: THEY STILL. AREN'T. MINE. DAMN IT ALL.
Author's Notes: This is my first sojourn into writing Jeeves and Wooster, so any constructive criticism is vastly helpful.

Here goes nothin' )

What ho!

 Hello, all =] I've been lurking around this community for a long while, looking at the wonderful art and fiction to be found here - and I thought it was about time I introduced myself. So, again, hello! I'm in love with J&W (and indeed anything Stephen Fry was ever involved with), and I write a little bit - a very little bit. Watching the J&W series, plus reading the Wodehouse, plus reading the work here, might inspire me to produce a ficlet somewhere along the way. In the meantime, I can't wait to see more of all of your fantastic work! Cheers!

Hello! I'm new to the Jeeves & Wooster stuff, and decided to pop in after seeing the show and starting to read most of the stories (which are AWESOME!). I wanted to introduce myself with a fanvid but sadly it's a little slow-going on finding the right stuff for the right time, so I came in to ask if anyone wanted Jeeves icons...

I'm making up a line of specialized Jeeves icons. Depending on what picture you want or what caption you have, the icons are animated gifs for you and you alone (or you and a friend, whichever). I made one for my friend, which can be found here, and specifically is for her.

When the fanvid is done, I'll post it (the same with any fanfics I actually get around to writing, if I do...). If there is a delay it's because I'm in college and thus have a test or something coming up, but I promise I'll give out the specialized Jeeves icons!

THANKS! *goes off to hug her Jeeves*

Hello there. My name is Lemony and I'm sixteen years old. I'm not new to this comm, but I have never posted before, so thought it best to introduce myself.

Right, so long story short my friend wouldn't believe that Bertie and Jeeves were more than friends so I wrote her a little essay, about six pages long on word, based on the short story 'Leave it to Jeeves' from the book, 'My Man Jeeves' and I've tarted it up a bit for this comm.  It's not particularly professional or deep and I've never written anything like this before apart from for school so I can't promise it'll be good, but I'd love to hear what you guys think.

I should also point out that all the quotes used in this post were written by P.G. Wodehouse. I've tagged and I've read the rules but I've still probably done something wrong so I apologize in advance.

'Leave it to Jeeves'- A slashy almost essay.

What ho all! I'm Toria, an ex-lurker who finally deciding to post something here C:

Well, I'm relatively new to the fandom, that being said I've been in a bit of an obsession since getting my hands on a couple of the books and the series box-set <3
I'm afraid I don't have much to offer in the writing areas however I will definately be posting a few pictures every now and then :3
That being said, I bring you all some art that hopefully you will enjoy :)
Here be art )
[identity profile] princesshannah4.livejournal.com
Hello, chaps! I've been an occasional lurker here for a few weeks but I think my strong newfound obsession with this series certainly merits a join and a post.

Currently, I've watched the first two seasons of the show and will resume watching it once I've finished reading Carry On, Jeeves (and I bought the complete DVD box set the other day). I've also read The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves, and How Right You Are, Jeeves/Jeeves in the Offing.

And this fall I will be starting at College of Wooster. I kid you not (named after the town instead of Bertie, even though that would be way more awesome.)

And now, for your viewing pleasure, I give you ART:

My own stuff )

Hello all! So, I've been something of a lurker here for almost two whole years, and have only recently started to comment and generally make my presence known. I had planned on making an intro post before this, but I wasn't sure what I would have said other than, well, hello. So, I wanted to wait until I actually had something to share and that moment is, clearly, now. :)

Erm, anyway, I bring fic. Somewhat unique fic, I hope. Well, anyway, without further ado . . .

Title: By Any Other Name
Rating: G
Word Count: Approx. 2100
Warning: Absolutely unadulterated fluff ahead. And, erm, some liberties taken.
Genre: Fluff, Gen
Summary: This wasn’t what he’d signed up for, he tells himself for probably the thousandth time in the last twelve hours. It’s become his mantra, and he’s even put a beat to the thing, a bit of a melody in his head that has kept him company and (somewhat) calm.
Author's Notes: Unbeta'd. First fic in the fandom. I tried to stick with British spellings and historically accurate sayings, but I'm sure my Americaness is showing through. Many apologies for any mistakes. :)

Get on with it, already! )
[identity profile] diimmortales.livejournal.com
And a rousing hunting-halloo to you all. I'm new to the site but old to the fandom, having been introduced a couple years back by a fellow American temporary ex-pat. living in Northern Ireland. May yet break a decade of fanfic-silence by scribbling a bit-- no other fandom has a canon so encouraging to the enterprising minds, what?-- but I mostly popped in to say hullo, and ask a few of questions as I read back through the archives.

First off, is there a working archive for the fandom yet? I'm only in 2005, and going through each entry to get my fix is indeed a project.

Secondly, is there a chronological list of the canon developments, or did dear Plum-as-Bertie write whence he chose?

And finally, for those of you who haven't thought to explore which particular tie binds Jeeves in the slashy American ending, I believe that paragon was in fact referring to the hymn, "Blest Be The Tie That Binds", written by John Fawcett towards the end of the the 18th century. It was ostensibly about the brotherhood of Christianity, but, as Jeeves was not the most observant of the holy rites, I think we can all see the what the quotation truly meant.

Some snippets: )

What, hymns never made you think slashy thoughts?

(The link is real, but immediately starts playing a mpeg of the hymn.)

Well, well, well...I've been lurking here for about a year now and figured it was time to say hello and thanks for all great fiction to read, the art to look at and the people to watch from my cosy armchair in the less well lit part of the clubroom. Today I stumbled upon this weird little thing while wasting time online:


In case anyone has read Moab I can only add "get into the Carmichael car Michael Carmichael"
