this post is mostly about fanfiction

In the last two days I have somehow gone from not writing anything at all to having three -- or maybe more like 2.5 -- fics on the go at once. And they all involve some measure of plot (AHHHHH) and goldy_dollar. So as you can probably guess, in one of them, the Doctor and Rose bake a cake out of rainbows and smiles so everyone can eat it and be happy.

So I guess there might be fic soon. I KNOW, YOU WERE ALL SO CONCERNED.

In the meantime, here is more of that 30 Day Meme.

Day 16 – Your Favourite Who-Related FanFic

Okay I don't actually have a good answer for this one. I can't think of a Doctor Who fic that sticks out in my mind as being ZOMG THE BEST EVER the way I can easily think of my favourite HP fic, for instance. I think the problem might be that the characters in Doctor Who are too spread out. I mean, my favourite Doctor/Rose fic probably doesn't have a segment on the epic BFFery of Ten and Donna, or a part about Martha Jones being the most badass bamf to ever bamf. So it is hard to find ONE FIC that I like most.

So here, have one of each.

Ten Calls by Jayne Leitch is my go-to Martha fic rec. It was written post-s3 so it has been a bit jossed since then, but I still really like it, and I think it does a good job of portraying the relationship I wish Ten and Martha had had after s3 though in reality I know that could never happen because Ten is a weenie. But it's delightfully timey-wimey and her Martha voice is quite good and in general the fic makes me happy. Four for you, Jayne Leitch.

For Donna, let's go with Your History Written in Stars and Time by such_heights. There are about a billion post-JE Donna fics, and this one is probably my favourite, and probably the only one that more-or-less stands up after EOT. The idea behind it, that aliens keep searching out Donna because the universe does remember, is so sweet and sad. And it is one of the few post-JE fics that doesn't either fix Donna's brain or end with utter despair, so that's nice.

Okay turns out it is actually way harder to find my favourite Doctor/Rose fic than I would have previously anticipated. This is possibly because there was a period of time where I read just about everything anyone wrote ever, and that was followed by a period of time where I read nothing.

Let's go with But Broken Lights by rosa_acicularis which was written in like 2007 but whatever I do what I want. It was my go-to Ten/Rose rec for a long time and I love a good argument in a fic, and I remember really liking the way this fic discussed all their ~issues~. It's possible they even kiss or something, I don't really remember, but clearly I really liked the fic if I could get past that HORRIBLE MISSTEP, lirl. ...Wow I am the worst person ever at writing recommendations. Frances, I blame your salesmanship.
