This is an Avengers blog (British TV show, not the superheroes). Expect anything to do with John Steed, Emma Peel, Cathy Gale, Patrick Macnee, Diana Rigg, and Honor Blackman. A bit of The New Avengers, 1960s/70s things, and a smattering of classical film. I pretty much cover my own interests du jour, but welcome requests for gifs, photosets, screencaps, and fanfiction. In fact, I love requests! I try to keep my commentary balanced, but I do have my (sometimes strong) opinions about characters, episodes, and relationships, and I will express them, sometimes in language you might not appreciate. I always welcome respectful, friendly debate. All fanfiction by celluloidbroomcloset: Creative Commons License

The Avengers: An Italian Honeymoon, Part V.

As promised, I’m trying to move ahead with this piece. This entry is a bit shorter than the last, but perhaps a bit more active! Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 are available. 

SFW. 

Please let me know what you think and if you’re enjoying this - either privately via messages, or by reblogging/responding. I like to know what’s working for people and what isn’t. 

Enjoy!

Fan Fiction

I’m considering moving my fan fiction to a more permanent location. I’ll still be posting everything here, but I also want it archived elsewhere, where anyone who wants to can get ahold of it. The question is: Archive of Our Own, or Fanfiction.net? Any ideas?

The Woman with Auburn hair - Chapter Fourteen.

Chapter Fourteen -

Steed paced the floor of his flat. The third glass of brandy in his hand nearly empty. He thought to himself.

(What do I say? Do I tell her the truth? Should I explain my actions earlier today? Will she even believe me?)

The door buzzer rang out.

Steed looked towards it….

GAH! When is she going to remember/he going to tell her?!

Emma thinks that Steed could be doing something much more constructive with his hands.

I’ve seen Q Planes - it’s an entertaining little British propaganda film. You can certainly see Steed in Richardson’s performance - down to the umbrella and the total disregard for authority. I believe it just recently became available on DVD.
