Summer '11 Fixathon!  

(Our apologies to the southern hemisphere.)

Much like our last ficathon, this is how it will work:
  1. Post a prompt! Comment to this post with your choice of Doctor/Rose pairing (any!Doctor/Rose, Nine/Rose, Ten/Rose, or Ten II/Rose etc.) + prompt. Please make sure to leave each prompt in a new comment. Prompts do not have to be summer-related.
  2. Read through the prompts until you find one that inspires you. Write a ficlet! You can either post your fic as a comment reply (if it fits) to the prompt or reply to the prompt with a link back to your journal.
  3. Fill as many prompts as you want! More than one person can fill the same prompt.
  4. All ratings are accepted (though you can specify in your prompt), but please write the rating + pairing in the comment header.
  5. Enjoy reading the fics and please remember to leave feedback!
  6. In a couple weeks time, we'll post a masterlist of everyone's fics.
  7. If ficathons aren't your thing, no pressure to write or participate! We'll still be posting our daily Doctor/Rose pics.

In order for the ficathon to run smoothly, please...
  • Fill prompts with newly written fic, rather than recs or links to fics that have already been written.
  • Try to reply to a prompt only if you are filling or planning to fill it (but please DO give authors feedback!).
  • Be considerate to your fellow ficathon participants -- both prompters and authors.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment here or PM a mod.

If you want to promote the ficathon with one of our snazzy banners,

All banners (except the last one) were made by the lovely mrv3000

And last, but not least, a banner made by our own shinyopals ...

Any Doctor/Rose

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars…” –On The Road, Jack Kerouac

Duality (10/R, PG-13)
(PG-13 due to the sexual situation, I suppose, but nothing explicit! I hope this is close to what you would've liked!)

He trails his fingers along her spine, all the way from her lower back up to the base of her neck, attentive to each individual vertebra. She is still getting used to this Doctor, all wild hair and hellos and suits instead of close-shorn hair and fantastics and leather, but if this is how attentive he can be in his ministrations, she does not think she will mind.

“And you really don’t remember?” he asks, and she is shivering under his touch, enough to roll onto her side so that his hand comes to rest on her hip.

“Not a thing,” she says. “Are you sure you’re not confusing me with someone else?” she adds, teasingly.

He shakes his head like a child insisting on having his way, denying all other alternatives. “It was you. Had to be. You were brilliant,” he says, and at this, he reaches up to touch her cheek, stroking his thumb over the soft skin. “Killed the emperor of the Daleks, you did—all the rest of them, too. A goddess out of the machine—literally! The Bad Wolf.”

She smiles at that, leaning forward and playfully nipping his earlobe. “Big teeth, then—all the better to eat you with.”

She rolls over and straddles his waist, leaning in to press her lips to his, murmuring, “Were you scared?”

“Terrified,” he says, and she’s stunned at the honesty of it. “I thought you were going to burn. Could’ve saved the world, but lost you.” He kisses her harder as soon as he finishes the sentence, as if to crush the words that had formed on his lips. “I never wanted to have that choice in front of me again.”

“Was I beautiful?” she whispers. “Or something to be afraid of?”

“Both, Rose. Like a Roman candle. All golden light and destruction, twined into one.” He reaches forward to twist his fingers in her hair. “It was mad. Brilliant, but mad.” He kisses her lips again, soft and lingering and grateful as he says, “Rose Tyler, you saved the Earth.”

She pulls away from the kiss, and this time she is the one who cups his cheek with her hand, smiling softly. “And you saved me,” she says gently, “so I guess we’re even.”

After a while, they tire of kissing and lie there in the bed together, hurtling towards their next destination, his arm resting under her body as she lies pillowed on his chest, lazily drinking in the sight of each other.

It is the first time the thought occurs to Rose that this might not be the Doctor she knew, but that he is still her Doctor, the one she wanted so badly to keep safe.

So that’s it, then. He is the Doctor and she is the Bad Wolf.

She can live with that.

Re: Duality (10/R, PG-13)
I fail at responding sometimes. Thank you! "Goddess out of the machine" was on someone's Bad Wolf icon somewhere, and it's totally true. Definitely the best deus ex machina I've ever seen, LOL. :D

Re: Duality (10/R, PG-13)
I love this! It's a really sweet moment, and works perfectly with the prompt - after all, what burns brighter than the Bad Wolf? The Doctor's description of Rose as a Roman candle was beautiful, as was the resolution where Rose accepts him as her Doctor.

Gorgeous. So intimate and loving and soft (if that makes any sense).
