I'm afraid I've finally had to join the ranks of the Friends Only crowd here on LJ. If you're a Real-World friend of mine who I've sent to check out my LJ in the past, I implore you to consider registering with LJ, because I would love to have you here.

Otherwise, please comment to be added.

I do love to meet new people, and I'm always open to new people, but I do discuss my real life quite a bit on this LJ (as well as a wide variety of subjects from TV Shows, Music, Film, Literature...) so I will be hesitant to add anyone who doesn't share a common interest, or mutual friends. But do pop in and comment and we'll talk!

irritated

current location: Citrus Heights, CA
current mood: irritated
current song: Fireflies - Owl City

Title: Untitled
Pairing/Characters: Ten/Rose, Jackie, Mickey, Pete, Donna
Summary: Mid-S4 speculation reunion fic. Inspired by humansrsuperior's vid All to Dust.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,700

Why I never posted it: I have no issues with this fic. I actually rather love it! But I've just never finished it. At the time that I was writing it, my goal was to finish it and post it before Turn Left aired - partially because I figured that's when we would know how canon would go, and because that's when I'd be leaving for my summer in England and I knew I wouldn't write on that trip. But...I didn't get it done in time. And then AFTER Turn Left aired, I figured it was irrelevant to post an out-of-date Season 4 reunion fic. Still, I've always rather liked it, so I've pondered finishing it one of these days. There's two parts done (approximately 8,000ish words total) so I'll post in two parts this week. Remember, unbetaed. Forgive me for word repetition!


I can get back to the Doctor.Collapse )

Author’s Note: One last time, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of y'all for the incredible response that you've given this fic. I know I keep saying thank you, but I have NEVER experienced a response like this to any of my fics before, and it really blew my mind and made me so grateful. This fic has been slowly working its way out of my head for over two years now, and as a result just finishing it and getting to share this with you all has just meant so much to me. Thanks again y'all! I hope you enjoy the ending!

Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 6, Chapter 7, Chapter 8


She froze as she reentered the room, surprised to see the Doctor lying on her bed, waiting for her. Pinched between his thumb and forefinger, he held John Smith's wedding band up over his face, studying it closely.Collapse )

The Doctor was sitting on the floor, his back up against a pillar, the suitcase open beside him, its contents strewn around him. He was holding a piece of paper in his hands, staring at it with a sad look on his faceCollapse )

Author’s Note: Apologies for being a few days late again. This week got away from me a bit. This chapter was a struggle for me, and I'm still not entirely happy with it, but everyone who has read it seems okay with it, so I'm going to send it out into the world and hope for the best!

Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 6,

The impression that Rose had gotten from that trip was that he was worried about her. The Doctor thought she was broken, in need of repair from a broken heart. Initially she had believed that he was tiptoeing around her because he was angry with her, but now she realized it was something else entirely.Collapse )

Rose wasn't sure what she should say. She wanted to apologize for taking advantage of him, for using him to make herself feel better, for falling in love with John Smith and being disloyal to the Doctor, but it felt wrong. How could she apologize for something she didn't entirely regret?Collapse )

Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3,

It was only mid-morning when the telegram arrived from the army, informing her of her husband's death. With all of the turbulent emotions boiling up inside her, it took very little effort for Rose to burst into grief-stricken tears, giving a show of shock and horror for the sake of the British Army.Collapse )

Author’s Note: As my donation to help_haiti, I've decided to auction off my word doc of Second Time Around. The response to Chapter 1 was so fabulous (Thank you all, SO much for that) that I'm hoping maybe someone would be willing to donate to get to read it in its entirety before it's posted. I believe the auction ends on Wednesday. Please drop by my thread and bid, if you're so inclined!

John Smith’s flat didn't look like much on the surface, but to Rose it said absolutely everything about him. Bare, unadorned walls suggested a blank slate, his decorating taste still undiscovered.Collapse )

The response to Chapter 1 has been so fabulous that I'm hoping maybe someone would be willing to donate to get to read it before it's posted in it's entirety. And since my financial situation doesn't really allow me to donate right now, I figured this is the least I could do.

So please, drop by my thread and bid!

Chapter 2 will be up later today, and I'm going to advertise the auction there as I post. I believe the auction closes on Wednesday, so only a few days to get in there!

Author’s Note: I kid you guys not: I have been writing this fic for over 2 years now. So the fact that it’s done, and is actually being posted is nothing short of a miracle. Special thanks to missalee and sugarsicons who both took a stab at helping me with comments, thoughts, and help over a year ago. And more recently, I really have to say a big thank you to lorelaisquared, who basically talked me into starting to write fic again and pushed me into finishing this back in November. I doubt I would have ever finished this without her support and cheerleading efforts.


The bright yellow flames licked at the sky, blinding, devouring, and destroying everything in its path. Rose could only stand there and watch from a distance, hoping and praying that all was not lost.Collapse )

I wasn't going to post this until tomorrow, but y'all have been so lovely that I decided to throw you a bone ;) Thanks so much for those of you who have been along for the ride. I've really loved sharing this with you and I'm so grateful for all of your wonderful comments. This is the first multi-chaptered fic that I've posted in, uhhhhh, about 6 years or so. And definitely the first multi-chaptered DW fic I've posted! It was so much fun! I have another one written that needs betaing, and will be back with it probably after Christmas sometime, so I hope to see y'all then! Thanks again, everyone!
