1. Time doesn’t run linearly, of course.

2. Their relationship is like a dance, twisting, turning.

3. There was absolute silence in the TARDIS.

4. Little known fact: days on Yestiran are about 6.5 billion times shorter than the days on Raphleton, which makes them about 6.022 times ten to the 23rd times longer than the days on Tw’ilek, which doesn’t actually exist anymore since they were destroyed by some... Death... Moon... or something, but their time measurements are the same size as human hours, just starting from a different point and counting from the beginning of their civilization instead of starting all over again with every day, like on Earth.

5. Having a row with your TARDIS is not an advisable thing to do for many reasons, one of the least of which is your TARDIS could make it very difficult to locate your own bedroom.

6. The thing about the door was that she couldn’t remember it ever having been there before.

7. It’s like the woods from a storybook, she decides, only more.

8. You do not worship at any one altar.

9. You find her on a planet that shouldn’t exist.

10. TAPE #K9950073(BW)

S: I still have dreams about him, sometimes.


I waffled about 10, but it was an awesome format and resulted in one of my favourite fics, so. I DARE YOU TO WRITE IT.

What if the Doctor regenerationed three seasons early and then proceeded to meet all of Joann's Doctor Who headvoices (and then some)?

Starring
[livejournal.com profile] eleventh_doctor as the Doctor
[livejournal.com profile] not_theman_iwas as the Other Doctor
[livejournal.com profile] lynda_with_a_y as the sweet one
[livejournal.com profile] just_koschei as the snarky-but-heroic other-universe Master
[livejournal.com profile] blewupthewizard as the demolitions expert
[livejournal.com profile] loud_and_ginger as the misplaced bride
[livejournal.com profile] born_running as the human archetype
and [livejournal.com profile] rose_and_thorn as the Lady.
(Also starring Schrodinger as the time-traveling cat companion extraordinaire - otherwise known as himself.)

Guest-starring Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Mickey Smith, Martha Jones, and several others.


"What about everything? What about aeroplanes, and
What about ships that drink the sea?
What about, what about the moon and stars? What about soldiers,
Battle scars, and all the anger that they eat?
I am not in need.

Get away and come with me,
Come away with me and we'll see
If I was right on that night, that a future was made."



It turns out if you take the Time Vortex into you willingly, it comes out like a suicide in that your next regeneration lacks key reproductive organs you’ve had for millennia.

“How do I look?” is the new Doctor’s first sentence.

“Blimey,” says Lynda.

“Oh, my God,” says Rose.

“Nice,” Jack says, and leers just a bit. But no one pays attention to him, because that’s just Jack for you.


After they’ve had a few adventures together, they settle into a pattern, of sorts. The Doctor tends to split them up in groups of two– because, she claims, she can’t keep track of three people at once. She rotates the groups to ‘keep things interesting’; at any given time it could be Lynda and Rose on their own, next Lynda and Jack. Jack’s groups tend to come back adrenaline-flushed and with shirts wrinkled or backwards, but as long as they still find time to follow whatever instructions she leaves them with, the Doctor chooses to ignore it.

what about aliens? what about you and me and what about gold beneath the sea? )

Barbara Manatee,
You are the one for me!
Sent from up above,
You are the one I love.



After tightening the rear valve, recalibrating the manifold intake, and sorting through one-eighth of the Wardrobe Room’s racks, the Doctor decided she’d had enough and marched off in search of her latest companion. Buffy had declared a veto on setting foot outside the TARDIS until she’d finished ‘something really important’ without explaining why or what, and it was time to put an end to this stagnation.

She found her in the lounge, surrounded by empty snack wrappers and a stack of DVDs, intently watching the television. The Doctor cleared her throat, loudly. “Hello?”

Silence.

“You know, it’s very rude to not answer someone who’s talking to y– Is that Endangered Love?”

“Shh,” Buffy said, eyes not leaving the screen. “Bill just admitted he can’t dance, and Barbara has no one to take her to the ball. It’s like my life, except with less undead and more flippers.”

“Addicted to aquatic soap operas,” the Doctor said, nodding wisely. “I ought to’ve warned you about that. They can be very – “

After a few minutes and a startling confession about manatee lipstick had passed, Buffy realised something had been said. “Very what?”

“Is this the episode where she tries on that new blue bow?” the Doctor said. “I love that one.”

Ten hours and countless bags of popcorn and chocolate bars passed before they resurfaced from the world of Manatee Love. Both agreed the marathon had been well worth it.

So! I have seen this making rounds, and... well, it is a good idea. I've been a bit low on inspiration lately, so:

Friends, Romans, Countrymen: lend me your ideas!

I'm even going to make this multi-journal: feel free to include stuff for [livejournal.com profile] blinkandyoumiss and [livejournal.com profile] lil_green_apple and [livejournal.com profile] born_running, too. And whoever else you happen to know I play. Toss several into a prompt, even, if you want!



Also, because the tradition of posting vids with OOC posts strikes me as a damn good one:




P.S. I turn seventeen on Tuesday. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN.

P.P.S. I'm not sure if this amuses or terrifies me.

Reply to this post with anything you'd like and I'll tell you why I friended you and two things I love about how you play your muse. The only catch? You have to repost this as well.

OOC! Ish!

Tis the Season and all that! Let's have some fun before pre-Christmas retail and planning drives us all batty. And since we all know it's better to give than to receive...

Post the name of your character here and Eleven, Alt!Koschei, or Luke will give you a Christmas gift! I'll write what s/he gives you and how s/he gives it to you! (You can specify which pup you want giving you a gift or leave it up to chance.)


Oh, and no flash photography. Poor pups've been through enough without blinding them, too.


{Also, my apologies to all I owe tags to. I am sucking horribly at getting things tagged lately, and I know a few threads have been stalled from my end because I can't work out how they would react to the latest tag. /sheepish apology}
