Moving notice for new works

Just a note to let my faithful readers know that any of my written fic, poetry, drabbles, etc. published after 9-10-10 will be archived at Dreamwidth at:
http://written-leaves.dreamwidth.org/
instead of here at LiveJournal. This journal will remain up, but will no longer be updated. As before, most works can also still be found at fanfiction.net, storiesofarda.com and/or whofic.com as well. Happy reading!

She was Always

One thing I have found is DW does not lend itself to poetry, not really. It is action and dialogue and intrigue, entertainment and adventure, but not really poetry, which is why this one surprised me when it rather suddenly welled up from a sort of poetic dormancy for the genre. But then, it is for a very special person.

(spicy_rejoinder, yes, this one would be for you.)

She was AlwaysCollapse )

Grant Me Just a Little Speech

He was very, very sorry

Title: Grant Me Just a Little Speech
Characters: The Master, Jo Grant with Third Doctor cameo
Wordcount: 4,250
Summary: The Master kidnaps Jo intending to hold her for ransom, but gets an earful instead.
A/N: A little tale written for JJPOR and Clocketpatch, who wondered what it would be like for the Master to have to spend time around Jo. This is one idea.

...he began to have misgivingsCollapse )

Three more, 1 2 3

I seem to be on a roll... either that or this is all my Muse can handle at the moment. Three more, one for each of my favorites again:

Title: Definitely the Water
Characters: Vicki, One
Summary: Oh yes, that’s it, you know what Romans were like. (Prompt 'twitterpated')
They seemed so sensible...Collapse )
--
Title: Face It
Characters: Two, Jamie
Summary: It's not something he'd ever wanted to practice.
(reference to the 'other Jamie' of The Mind Robber, prompt 'fairy tale')

How could y' do this to me?Collapse )

Title: Priorities
Characters: Three, the Master
Summary: Even in times of danger, he remembered what was truly important. (prompt 'steam')
Your face gives you away...Collapse )

A trio of Drabbles for a trio of Doctors

Plugging along through longer WIPs I found a need to finish *something* hence a set of three drabbles to touch base with my neglected friend dw100.

First, my favorite of the batch:
Title: Hold Me
Characters: Ian, Barbara
Wordcount: 100
Summary: Just making their way through this adventure together, prompt 'tremor'.

Hold MeCollapse )

A bit of humor -
Title: Next Time Just Order a Cake
Characters: Two, Jamie and Zoe
Wordcount: 100
Summary: These look a little too familiar. (Reference to ‘The Seeds of Death’, prompt bloom)

Oh dear...Collapse )
And finally, a tiny bit that wants to turn into a tale but I'm tamping it down.
Title: Nearly Sweet as Water
Characters: Three and Jo
Wordcount: 100
Summary: Sheltered from more than the sun.
A/N: A brushing of Three-Jo fluff for starflower, prompt cool.

It was a strange thing...Collapse )

Fic: Something in the Husband...in Spaaace!

When infiniteviking brought up a challenge to take a randomly generated title and add 'IN SPAAAACE' to it then write a drabble I had to at least give it a try. The end result is longer than a drabble, but was good light fun.

Title:Something in the Husband...in Spaaaace!
Wordcount: 407
Characters: Ian and Barbara Chesterton

Ian coughed...Collapse )

Title drabbles for Ten: Reunion, Of and Daughter

Another addition to my Titles in a Box set, now that Ten's run is over. lost_spook very rightly pointed out that he still needed to have his done, so here they are with mixed amounts of sensibility. Every word of every episode shoehorned into drabbles - split into three sections according to season as he had so many episodes. As with the other Doctors, I've allowed for one wild card word that doesn't fit in for each which then becomes the title.

Reunion and Two OthersCollapse )

Drabble: Egging On

For curuchamion, whose comment regarding her icon of Three with a blue penguin 'hat' on his head was that he was much more patient about having a penguin on his head than the Brigadier would be. I took this for a (tiny) writing challenge.

Egging On (a double-drabble)
--
“You’d not be pecked so much if you’d be quiet,” the Doctor rebuked mildly.

“You truly expect me to be quiet when there’s a penguin sitting on my head?” the Brigadier groused – again.

“If you want to be warm, yes.” The Doctor said softly. He looked up at the sky, taking care not to tip his own off. “As I said, they’re the only heat source we’ll find here. Just be glad their instinct to warm anything egg-shaped is working.”

The Brigadier shifted where he was hunkered in the snow, two large sleepy penguins against his back, and rolled an eye up at his unusual headgear. It clicked, honked and settled down over him again. “I’m not egg-shaped and when are those infernal snowmobiles going to get here? Ow. Ow!”

The Doctor smiled. Nearly all had now moved over to him, as he only occasionally made little penguin noises at them.

“This is ridiculous!” the Brigadier grumbled. “Ow!” His penguin, apparently just as fed up with it as he was, jumped off, shook its head at him and waddled away, the other two following. They added to the penguins circled around the Doctor, who watched him shiver and smirked.

Fic: Ramona and the Blue Box

"I'm a robot! Bzzzt! Bzzzt!"

Title: Ramona and the Blue Box
Characters: Four, Romana, K-9, Ribsy, Ramona and Beezus Quimby, Henry Huggins
Summary: The Doctor finds himself in for an interesting afternoon when he and Romana land on Klickitat Street. Or was it Ramona?

A/N: This entire story stemmed from a slip of the tongue while my family was driving and discussing the varying relationships the Doctor had had with his companions, in which an attempt at saying “Four and Romana” came out as “Four and Ramona.” The reaction in the car was to immediately demand a fic. For those unfamiliar with them, Ramona is a character from a series of well-known classic children’s books by Beverly Cleary, set on Klickitat Street and it’s immediate area in Portland, Oregon in the 1950s, though I don't think you'd really need to be very familiar with them to enjoy the tale.

6 relatively short chapters, the first is here under the cut, the rest may be found at
Ramona and the Blue Box at Fanfic.net
or
Ramona and the Blue Box at Teaspoon, Chapter 1
Chapter 2| Chapter 3 | Chapter 4
Chapter 5 |Chapter 6


No need to jump to conclusions. Klickitat could be a British name.Collapse )

Fic: Doesn't Even Throw a Shadow

"It's just not fair, is it?"

Title: Doesn't Even Throw a Shadow
Characters: Yates, with, Jo, Three and Benton
Wordcount: 600
Summary: Captain Yates wishes he could capture just a little of Jo's attention, if only the Doctor weren't outclassing him. A short ficlet for Mike's sad plight.

A/N: Poor old Mike. Ever since he lost that date that Jo even dressed up for just because the Doctor abruptly swept her away to another planet, I’ve felt a little sorry for him. He never stood a chance. I blame this ficlet on lost_spook who made me go look at my plot-bunnies and hence rediscover this one.

He knew she was only being polite. But...Collapse )
