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.

Now I want to know what your favorite HP fic is.
Kali: hp :: let there be light_thirty2flavors on July 26th, 2010 07:21 pm (UTC)
Five Women Who Hate Fleur Delacour by snegurochka_lee.

Runner-up is probably Map of the Problematique by ladyblack888.

Ohhhh I've read that first one and it is amazing. I'll have to check out the second one when I'm not at work. (Or... when I am at work and not doing work, like right now.)
Kali: dw :: master :: i approve_thirty2flavors on July 26th, 2010 07:28 pm (UTC)
Five Women makes me sad that I didn't ever come up with anything for femgenficathon this year. :( Maybe I will suddenly get ~inspiration~ later on and I can just use the quotes anyway lol.

I haven't read the second one in years (I reread Five Women recently) but I remember really liking it at the time.

I do enjoy "Ten Calls." It's a good one.

...I wanted to have a productive comment but I can't think of anything. :/
Kali: dw :: the oncoming storm_thirty2flavors on July 26th, 2010 07:24 pm (UTC)
I like the title because it always makes me giggle in like a dumb "LOL IT COULD BE THE NUMBER OF CALLS MADE OR THE FACT THAT TEN IS CALLING LOLOLOL" way.

YESSS we exist to make Cloen's life as good as Ten's was in his final days.

that was also when I went "okay his sunglasses look exactly the same as his regular glasses, does he have transition lenses", so when they turned out to be his regular glasses only sonicked I loled so hard

I think I was watching but not caught up properly or reading journals. LOL I should find this post
Kali_thirty2flavors on July 26th, 2010 07:59 pm (UTC)
I found it really easily. TY, AWESOME SUBJECT LINE.
Austinjohnmayergirl23 on July 26th, 2010 08:04 pm (UTC)
Everything about that episode is hilarious.
Kali: dw :: rose :: i am the bad wolf_thirty2flavors on July 26th, 2010 08:06 pm (UTC)
lol Planet of the Dead. After The Next Doctor it felt genius, but compared to Waters of Mars it is so sad and pathetic.
demented & sad, but socialpapilio_luna on July 26th, 2010 08:34 pm (UTC)
I totally called the sonicking of the specs as soon as those promo pics came out. When that actually turned out to be the case, well, that was pretty much the best thing about that episode.
