And with that, I bid thee farewell for a month, Tumblr.
Tomorrow is going to be full of packing and last minute errands and house cleaning and all that. And I’m going to literally lock myself in the room so I can finish beta-reading because they freaking called me away to do stuff when I got to the best part and I am upset.
Again, I’ll (hopefully) have Tumblr mobile but no inbox so if you need me urgently email is the way to go.
I sincerely hope every one of you has a fantastic holiday season that’s full of all the warm fuzzy stuff. Happy New Year, too, and I’m sure we’ll have a great, Tumblr-centric 2014 ;)
Stay safe, dearies!!
Title: Matryoshka or: How TenToo Grew Into His Own.
Rating: PG 13.
AN: This is another one of those bright ideas that was never allowed to develop into fics because I had no time/faith in my ability to write it the way I saw it. But over these past few days it took on a life of its own and plotted itself out perfectly, so I had to finally suck it up and write it all down. (Even though, once again, it didn’t turn out quite as WOW as it was supposed to). This is almost entirely filled with my personal Pete’s World headcanons, so please excuse the blatant self-indulgence here.
This fic is dedicated to (and essentially written for/because of) thesilverdevistation as a secret Christmas present. While it’s not my best, not really canon-compliant and not beta-read (because she’s my beta and um secret) I needed to give her a gift. Sweets, you are really an amazing person, an even beta friend (PUNS!!) and just the greatest beta reader ever. Thank you for being so bloody patient and supportive of every rambling text post I make and just… I owe you so much. I hope you feel the virtual love I am sending you through this <3 Have an amazing holiday season and the greatest new year ever <3
ETA: I’m still not sure whether I like the way the timeline of this fic runs, so if you want to read it as one of those ‘time jumps around between segments’ (and inside segments, actually) fics then please do?
Title: Think I was blind before I met you
Pairing: TenToo/Rose with mentions of the other Doctors/Rose
AN: Written for the Doctor Who Secret Santa! My wonderful giftee requested “Something cute”. I tried my best, I really did, but I don’t think I got the adorable scale quite up to the correct standards. I’m terribly sorry if this is the case – please, please, please feel free to request another fic, dear. No, really: this fic idea has been begging to be written since July last year but I always put it off because I was too scared that what I saw in my head wouldn’t translate properly to paper. My fears were warranted, but at least I was motivated to get off my ass and do it. So thank you very much, lonelymonsterseekingcompanion! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season <3 Again, please feel free to request a new fic; I honestly will not mind in the slightest.
ETA: Oh they said five hundred words… um… *shifty eyes*
Based very, very solidly on Bright Eyes’ “First Day Of My Life”.

Oh FUN. Definitely not reading now :/
What if we’ve been misunderstanding?
What if ‘silence will fall when the question is asked’ means something totally different?
What if ‘the question’ is somebody turning to the Doctor and asking “Are you afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?” The Bad Wolf saw everything. Say she found a way to get herself back to the Doctor when he needed her most.
Say ‘silence falling’ means the Silence will fall - be destroyed - by the girl who can see everything and remember everything including them. They will have no power with her. And she will divide them to keep her Doctor safe - no matter what form he is in.
Halfway through book two of Korra and I just…
Most of it is good. But I can’t get over what they did to Mako’s character this season. Sure, he was always a bit of a jerk but this is just… it’s like everything changes if the episode plot needs it?
Maybe it’s just me? I don’t know. I am just finding a lot of contradictions. In Korra, too, sometimes. But that’s at least a little resolved.
In utter fangirl news: they touched upon Bumi being a non-bending kid of the Avatar and Kya not being an Airbender and I am so happy thank you Bryke.
