Fic: Leave my body (Doctor Who, Ten, Wilf, Eleven)

Title: Leave my body
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG
Genre: Angst, character introspection, meta-fic (sort of)
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Wilfred Mott, Eleventh Doctor, mentions of various Ten-era characters
Setting: The End of Time/post-The End of Time (so spoilers for that, obviously)
Word Count: 2294
Summary: "Oh, people would still call him ‘the Doctor’, he would still lead the same life. He would carry on, but he would be gone. Pretty schizophrenic, but that was who he was."

A/N: Wow. This was actually written back in November, during NaNoWriMo, and has been sleeping on my hard-drive ever since. Well, not exactly, since it had been edited and re-edited until my beta and I were pretty much happy with it. Said beta is the wonderful [ profile] novindalf  (who incidentally gave me the prompt that inspired this fic) and I owe her big, big thanks for the several evenings she spent beta-ing this, correcting my English mistakes, pointing out that readers can't read my mind and that I needed to be clearer, for clever rephrasing and overall turning this into more of a readable fic and less of a philosophy essay (which is sort of was). 
Basically, this fic is about my take on Ten's regeneration process, and writing down my thoughts on it, on EoT, on Doctor Who in general, and how I see Ten's behaviour during the specials. It's a declaration of love to Ten (and Wilf) and how I love and relate to him even during his darkest hour. I needed to get it out of my system.
The title comes from Florence + The Machine's song of the same name. I listened to it on repeat while writing this. The lines 'I don't want your future, I don't need your past. One bright moment is all I ask.', 'I'm gonna leave my body, I'm gonna lose my mind' and 'History keeps pulling me, pulling me down' were particularly inspiring. 
(I am well aware that I 'owe' Doctor Who fic to some of you, so I hope this will be a tolerable compensation in the meanwhile :))

"Even then, even if I change, it feels like dying. Everything I am dies. Some new man goes sauntering away... and I'm dead." )

The lovely [ profile] amandiers requested Downton Abbey icons yesterday - here they are, as I made them already but won't be posting icons to my comm for a while. (With B&W versions because I'm having a B&W phase :) Christmas Special caps hate me, I find them really hard to colour, so they're a bit meh. If you want other icons from S1 or S2, let me know!
(ETA: These aren't shareable.)

Sign-up here! You have until the end of the first challenge to sign-up. I have a feeling it's going to be great, the first challenge was a lot of fun already, plus you only have to make one icon per challenge! :)

Fic: Valuable assets (Spooks/Sherlock crossover)

Title: Valuable assets (part 1 of 'An interested party')
Fandoms: Sherlock BBC/Spooks crossover (can be read even if you've only seen one of the two shows)
Set during S2 of Spooks and pre-Sherlock series, mild spoilers regarding Ruth and Harry.
Characters: Harry Pearce, Mycroft Holmes, 'Anthea', mentions of Ruth Evershed and Section D.
Genre: Humor (verging on crack), pre-drama (yes, in my head it means something)
Rating: G
Word count: 2140
A/N: This one is for [ profile] keep_counting and[ profile] fueschgast and the idea came when we decided on Twitter that Valentine's Day would in fact be 'Harry Pearce and Mycroft Holmes appreciation Day' (yes, that was a while ago). We figured these two had to be written together somehow. Here is the first part, finally!

'Have you been drinking, Jools? The British Government isn't made of only one per... Oh, I see.' )

fic: Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Title: Sorry seems to be the hardest word 
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Set after 2x03, so obviously, spoilers for the episode.
Characters: Mycroft, Sherlock
Genre: Angst, Family
Rating: PG, no warnings.
Word count: 1792

A/N: The title comes from Elton John's song, obviously. :)  I started it as a drabble for this prompt at [profile] day_by_drabble, but it soon got away from me and turned into a fic instead. Huge thanks to [personal profile] keep_counting for all her help and supporting me via Twitter until I'd finished this. So this one's for you! ;)
This is my first Sherlock fic ever, so I'm a bit nervous. I hope it's alright.

The guilt lingered, and from time to time he would feel a more painful wave of pain running through his chest, as if someone was taking pleasure in repeatedly shooting him, leaving breaks in-between the torture sessions. He should know, torture sessions were not uncommon in his line of work. )

Fic: Annoying television (and a bottle of gin)

Title:Annoying television (and a bottle of gin)
Fandom: Spooks
Set during series 7 
Characters/pairings: Series 7 Section D, mostly Ros and Harry, mentions of Ros/Adam, Fiona, Wes, and Jocelyn Myers.
Genre: Angst (I think), friendship
Rating: PG for swearing and mentions of drinking, but nothing more
Word count: 1700

A/N: Very, very late Christmas prompt for [info]aletheia08 who wanted a ficlet about Ros Myers. Me being me, I got the inspiration after Christmas, and it turned out to be a bit longer than a ficlet. I hope you'll enjoy it anyway. It was my first time having Ros mostly interact with someone who wasn't Lucas, and it feels like ages since I posted fic, so I hope this is okay. :) Reviews are always much appreciated!

She likes Christmas, unlike what people tend to think. Or she would like it if all the things that went with it didn’t have to be so bloody painful. )

"I always thought that I would love to live by the sea..."

More icons! I'm still in the process of making new ones, but I thought it was time I posted these first. I've experimented a bit more with curves, colouring, saturation, brushes and textures, so these are different from one icon to the other. I'd love to know what you think! And then I'll definitely go through a Gimp tutorial, because self-teaching has its limits. 

I've also created a new community, [ profile] wild_feelings, and I'll be posting my graphics posts there after this one, and maybe my stories/fic too, so feel free to join or watch to get my updates. :)

{6} Doctor Who 6x13 (Amy, Rory and River, no spoilers)

No, you're not dreaming, I made icons! :) I've taken some of my favourite icons from what I've been making in the past few weeks (and in the past two days, because Erin Watts was begging me to icon her), are here they are!

{25} Spooks (mostly Erin Watts from 10.1)
{20} Doctor Who (mostly Amy Pond and "The God Complex")

Fic: Children of the storm (Doctor Who, Doctor/River)

Title: Children on the storm (One-shot)
Fandom: Doctor Who
Set in the Doctor's future
Characters/pairings: Doctor/River, mentions of Rory and Amy
Genre: Angst, Romance
Rating: G
Word count: 930
Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who.

This has been on my memory stick for weeks now; I forgot to post it. It's a Doctor/River fic, involving a younger River and an older Doctor, originally written for the "Storm" prompt at [ profile] day_by_drabble. But it's a lot longer than a drabble, so I'm posting the complete version here. :)

River loved storms. Maybe because they reminded her of some people... )

Genre: Friendship, Angst
Rating: PG
Word Count : 498
Disclaimer : I do not own Spooks

Sorry for spamming your f-lists with a fic I've already posted in my writing comm, but as it turns out I decided to post my fics here again and make a master-list to make things clearer. Also I kept forgetting about the existence of said comm and therefore didn't update there, so it'll be easier for me this way. :P
AND I just realized copying html and pasting it instead of copying rich text saves you from doing LJ cuts and italics again! And I figured out how to name links too, woohoo! I feel clever right now, although you probably think I'm stupid for not having figured all that out before. ;)

fic: Beginnings (Doctor Who, Future Doctor, River)

Title: Beginning
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Doctor/River Song
Genre: Angst (?), Romance
Rating: G
Word count: 500
Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who.
Spoilers: Not really, unless you never heard about River and haven't watched "Forest of the Dead'... No spoilers for series 6.
Summary: "Beginnings weren’t always as they seemed. In their case, beginnings were endings. He had met her on the day she died and he had known all along the day would come when she would meet him for the first time, and wouldn’t know who he was. "
Ficlet written for the "Beginnings" prompt @ [ profile] fictionland .
I've been trying to write Doctor/River for a while, so there you go.
I don't really like it, I had so much more to say, but I was limited to 500 words. I may develop the idea in a longer fic someday.

Anyway, I do hope you'll enjoy it, and reviews are love. :) xx
