This was written for the Doctor_Rose_Fix Spring Fix-a-Thon on LJ.  The prompt was: Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.  - Henry Van Dyke

(Just a bit of reposting...this has been up on Teaspoon for awhile.)


The Doctor asks her—once she’s signed up, once he’s stuck with her—where she wants to go.

“All of time and space at your disposal,” he says, grinning.

It’s been a long, long time since he last had a companion, but he still remembers this part.  He waits patiently for the expected reply—it’s always the same.  Either they name some event in Earth’s history that they want to visit or they protest that they couldn’t possibly know, out of all of time and space, what would make a good destination.

The first one is usually good fun, but he’s sort of hoping it’ll be the second. 

More chances for him to show off that way.

Rose scrunches up her forehead in a way that he knows means she’s thinking.  After a moment of silence, she says, “Could you show me the, I dunno, size of it?”

He raises an eyebrow.  This is new.  “The size of the universe?”

“Not the size,” she says, a bit frustrated.  “The scope of it.  The scale—that’s the word I want.  The scale of it all, the very big and the very small.”

He grins.  Oh, yes, he can.

I am unreasonably happy about this...

Which Doctor Who Companion Are You?

Rose Tyler
Rose Tyler
Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.</p>
You're Rose Tyler! You are spunky, determined, and as religiously devoted to your Doctor as you are to chips. (He's the only one who doesn't know how sweet you are on him, too.) You never stay put when you're told to stay put, but just when everyone expects you to get roasted by the monster of the week, you turn right around and figure out the mystery. You're sharp as a tack, but also sensitive, knowing when the Doctor needs someone to back him up or when he just needs a hand to hold. He seems to think he can get rid of you... you're quick to show him he's wrong!

Once Upon A Time There Was An Ocean

Chapter FourCollapse )


So this is weird.  Someone wrote a sequel to one of my fanfics, and I can't decide if I'm flattered or just sort of annoyed.  Is that normal?  What's the etiquette for this sort of thing?

She did give me credit and provided a link to the original story, so I guess that's good...And people do still write me angry emails about that story ending too soon, which I find completely hilarious.

Still...Other People's Pets 2.  Huh.
