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 [livejournal.com 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." )

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 [livejournal.com 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... )

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 @ [livejournal.com 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
