What ho, everyone!

First, I'm searching for a fic which has sadly biffed off amid the mists of memory. It's so unique and bizarre that I'm not even sure it exists? Or did I make it up? It involves Jeeves leaving Bertie's employment, setting up in a resort somewhere, and playing a germane Oscar Wilde type to the resort guests. There's a conversation on the beach where he points out one of the girls' white dress only looks demure, but when the owner steps in front of sunlight, the whole thing looks transparent and it shows off her figure. He tells someone: "Why should I go to the world, when the world can come to me?"

He eventually returns to Bertie, and Bertie in his absence has learnt to do basic household tasks and is doing okay. He had never engaged another valet.

Second thing - rec me a writer!Bertie fic! I mean, P.G. Wodehouse is a recognized Literary Genius and Prose-smith (made that word up). In the J&W world it's Bertie coming up with all these wonderful narrative flourishes and fantastic dialogue. Rec me a fic where someone recognises that Bertie is more than just a member of the blood-sucking aristocracy.

Thanks everyone very much!

Hello. Would anybody be able to point me in the direction of some fics that feature a virgin/inexperienced/celibate/anxious-when-it-comes-to-sex!Jeeves? I really want to read something where Bertie is the more experienced of the two. Thanks very much!

HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE I just remembered the premise finally. It's the one where the boys get bunged into a storm or sommat and wake up in the twenty-first century and have to go about sorting out their new life and what the new setting means for them and their relationship. (Edit: Found this one, still looking for the other.)

While I'm about it, there's another, where Jeeves and Bertie are a thing but they haven't done the do cause Bertie is all "but we're not married" and the whole thing ends up with Bertie writing Jeeves into his will as his sole benefactor and reckons that's the best he can manage and they toddle off to France for a bit of a honeymoon. (edit: this one also found. Thanks guys!)

tl;dr: Need recs for J/W fic from at least two years ago, if not older.

Hallo all! I'm doing one of those help-me-find-this-fic-I-remember thingummies, but there's a bit of a hitch.

I was reading Yes, Sir, Jeeves this morning and something in the second half sparked a memory of another fic that I wanted to read. I could remember very clearly the title and all at the moment, but by the time I'd got to the end of the paragraph and found a suitable stopping point to go pull it up I'd forgotten everything- including the blasted premise!

Which is why I'm ankling round here. I'm digging through the archive manually at the moment hoping it'll jump out at me, but I'm hoping you guys can save me a bit of time.

Now, I'm not asking you to find a fic you don't even know the premise for, that would be asking a bit much, right? All I'm asking is recs for fic. That's not so hard, right? The catch is that the fic has to be at least two, if not three years old or older- that's the last time I dipped my feet in this fandom, after all, so it has to have existed at least as late as then. Only condition is that it has to be J/W- other pairings need not apply.

I really hope this is up with the rules of the comm and all. It's going to bug me till I've found it, I know.

What ho, what ho!

I am finally contributing some art of my own, though I must say I could do better. I really liked working on these, though, so you hope you like them :) Comments are love, also please state your opinion on whether I should colour these or go with classical black and white.

Peek-a-Boo )

More Bertie doodles over at my journal

While we are on the subject, I was wondering if you could recommend me some fics (Jooster or general) that deal with Bertie's past or his parents? I'd especially like something, which would make Jeeves see him in a different light. Any recommendations appreciated, though :)

Toodle pip!

Tally ho, dear comrades!

I'm taking a break from my hibernation to ask about a multi-chapter fic I remember reading a few years ago. It started off with Bertie getting a rather sudden illness/condition that resulted in him going blind. In retrospect, I think the doctor even had to take his eyes out (dear god, I do hope I'm not making this up). A lot of angstiness ensues, but Jeeves stays devotedly by his side and makes him accept his fate and learn to live with it.

Clues, anyone?

Apart from that, I would like some recommendations on similar Jooster fics where Bertie is actually behaving solemnly/competently in contrast to his usual self. To be short, I'd appreciate angsty plots, with suicide attempt or something of the kind. Ignore my dark fixations, if you please. :D

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm hoping to get some story recommendations along certain themes.

-- The first one is violent Spode. I remembere one story where Spode almost kills Bertie over something he didn't even do (of course). If I remember correctly it was a very close call and Jeeves had to become violent to stop Spode. I would love to find this story and all stories similar to it with Spode (or a Spode like character) attacking Bertie and Jeeves coming to the rescue.

-- Secondly I would love to find stories where Bertie plays classical music to please Jeeves even if he likes show tunes better. Any story like this or others were Bertie's love and talent for music comes into play would be very welcome.

I would be very grateful for all recommendations this lovely community can come up with :-). Thank you!
Slash and gen are both appreciated.

Hello, All,

I'm so sorry I haven't update any Medicinal Skirts stories, but I just recently found my notes and am anxious to take off again soon. There is just one thing though: I do have quite a list of skirts and have looked around for more ideas (via Google), but the list still feels.... short. SO, I would love to hear of any ideas or requests from you all.
Here is what I have:
  • Waiter(ess)
  • Hula/Grass
  • Princess
  • Dutch-maid
  • Clown
  • Boy-player
  • Hoop
  • Tunic/skirt (medieval)
  • Cancan
  • Kilt
  • Gladiator
  • India (think Bollywood)
  • School girl (I hesitate to use this one)
You see my dilemma? Despite searching through "sexy costumes" on the internet they are all either to modern for Jeeves and Wooster or they're a male profession turned femme fantasy.

BTW! Search "male skirt" on Google. You are in for a treat! (I look forward to the equaling sexes)
[identity profile] dt-caffy.livejournal.com
What-ho! I hope this is allowed... please let me know if it isn't and I'll delete the post.

I was wondering if there is any art out there that depicts Jeeves in a state of disarray? Particularly in regards to his hair. I just adore the idea of his hair being thoroughly ruffled (by Bertie, of course) so that a couple of loose strands fall into his eyes and act as a fringe.

Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you!

I have a plot!bunnie for adoption.
I was re-watching a favorite anime of mine: Ghost Stories (even if you don't like anime I recommend it. The English dubbing is ALL parody and hilarious) and thought about Bertie being a sort of exorcist in school, thus explaining his winning the Scripture Prize fairly.
The ghosts could be more active during Bertie's childhood because of the industrial era and all the vessels the ghosts and demons were banished too are being demolished and setting them free.
Any takers?
Yes? No?
Maybe so?

I would like to give a well deserved plug to the story that recently rekindled my interest in J&W . . .

Jeeves and the Opera Ghost

Basically, if Wodehouse had decided to do a crossover with Phantom of the Opera, this would be it. Absolutely flawless dialogue and Raoul, Christine's love, is perfect as one of Bertie's foppish friends.

Odd sort, old Raoul. One of those dreamy, romantic types. Not quite as dangerously far gone as Madeline, but still, definitely of the brooding, contemplative temperament. He was actually some sort of nobility in his native France—a vicomte, viscount, or both. I was never too clear on it, really, and he wasn't the type to chat it up. When he was about fourteen his older brother Philippe, who was also his guardian, sent him away to boarding school in England, apparently in order to "forget a girl."

Naturally Bertie and Jeeves end up travelling to France to help deal with this rummy "Opera Ghost" business that's sprung up and to meet this girl Raoul is so crazy about.

"I am curious to meet this lass Raoul's been wild about since he was but a mere stripling, this Christine Day—Dyer—Dahee—oh, blast it, Jeeves, how do you pronounce that damned name?"

"Die-ay, I believe, is the correct enunciation, sir."

"Die-ay, eh? That's what you get from D-A-A-E with that little dash on top of the last letter?"

"An accent, sir."

"Well, of course you'd say it in an accent, but it's still a rummy little symbol to attach willy-nilly to the last letter of a word."

Hilarity ensues. :D

To note Armistice Day/Remembrance Day/Veteran's Day, I was hoping that you guys would rec me your favorite war-related fics. I know I've already read a lot of them, but there's always a chance I missed something brilliant, and there's so many different takes on how it happened (or didn't happen) in Wodehouse's world that I never get tired of reading them.

Rec a fic?

Recently (no more than a few hours ago, I should say) [livejournal.com profile] wotwotleigh showed me the delightful musical By Jeeves saying that Martin Jarvis' version of Jeeves was what she imagined when she read the books.

Now, I'm not sure if she meant age as well, but it got me thinking: are there any fics out there where Jeeves is significantly older (as is portrayed in this adaption)?

Credit: There must be!
Debit: Aha, but where are they?
Credit: Fortunately this comm is filled with helpful fellows who could surely rec a few!

Also, as previously mentioned, my computer gave up the ectoplasm a couple days ago and I lost all my bookmarks. Would anyone care to point me in the direction of their personal favorites? :D

What ho, What ho, What ho!

As some of you may have noticed in a post I made in Katelynna10000's Post, My compy has crashed and all of my precious bookmarks lost. (boohoo). SO! This is good opportunity to promote or self promote some of your faves or own writings! Please and Thank you!

ETA: I just remembered a fic I was looking for. Does anyone know the fic where Bertie read one of his muder novels and is starting to notice he's being followed, he tells Jeeves, who thinks he is being paranoid, and writes it off, but then one day, Jeeves goes out to do some marketing or other and Bertie gets jumped answering his own door. His last recollection before black out is Jeeves coming home and going Hulk on the baddies. (LOVE BAMF!Jeeves) 
Anyone? Yes? No? Maybe so?

I wish to start a discussion. How much of Jeeves work is Marvel and how much is undiagnosed OCD? Thoughts! GO!

(and are there any fics?)

It's sorta like "As Seen On TV!"

Some delightfully twisted person recced The Yaxley Affair, my Jooster/MUNCLE crossover, on the [livejournal.com profile] crack_van community!

I've been wrestling with the idea of fic setting Bertie as a suriviour of the trenches for a long time now ( I blame Dorothy L. Sayers), but it's not going anywhere fast.

Basically I'm hoping that someone will have written something similar and it may prompt the plot bunnies to co-operate. So are there any fics out there linked to the First World War?

Someone did mention one in a discussion about Armstice day (Green Ice, I think it was called), but when the link didn't work. Thank you in advanced for your help.

What ho, again.

I can only find so many, which ia a real shame and thanks to livejournals new entry policy, I can only go back so far to find more. Could you guys give me a few links to archives or just any House-jeeves crossovers?

1) I have been searching rather desperately for this one particular fic. My computer got sick a while back, and then died tragically, taking with it all of my bookmarks. I've tried searching through the archives but have, alas, been sadly lacking in success.

Anyway, this fic was actually inspired by a different one. It started with Bertie confessing his love for Jeeves. Jeeves, unaware that he reciprocated  Bertie’s feelings, rejected him and resigned. He went to work for someone else, and became somewhat depressed. Bertie shows up at the new employer’s house for some reason. There’s a fire, and Jeeves realizes that he actually does love Bertie.

2) One other thing. I know all of the early Jeeves fics, but haven’t read much in the last year. So. What are the newer, amazing Jooster fanfics?

Much Thanks
