Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: "Are you…" okay, she intended to finish and then something caught her eye. A suitcase, by the edge of the bed. It was open, and stuffed haphazardly with his clothes and toiletries. Her stomach sunk. “What the hell is this?”

Sunlight streamed into the kitchen and Rose winced, a headache building behind her eyes.

Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: “Oh, don’t flatter yourself. I don’t want this. I don’t want you.” Everything was stirred up now — his anger with the Master, with himself, his grief at having Rose ripped away from him — and it shook in his voice, low and angry. “You know, I was actually happy? Really, properly happy. For once. And you took that away.”

Previous parts: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3; Part 4; Part 5; Part 6; Part 7; Part 8; Part 9

At first, Rose didn't move.

Authors: goldy_dollar & _thirty2flavors
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Ten II/Rose
Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: There was no mistaking the naked concern on his face, but she remembered what he had said back in the laboratory. I care about all my companions. For all the years that had passed, after everything they’d shared, in the end she was just the latest in a long line.

Previous parts: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3; Part 4; Part 5; Part 6; Part 7; Part 8

Characters/Pairings: Ten II/Rose
Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: The Doctor’s mouth twitched, and for a split second Rose thought he looked hurt. There was a shameful triumph in knowing she could still hurt him; a petty part of her wanted to lash out, to break his heart as effectively as he’d broken hers.

Previous parts: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3; Part 4; Part 5; Part 6; Part 7

The Doctor sagged back against the door after he shut it.

Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: Rose said, “Hang on, you want us to come with you? To the other world?”

The Master rolled his eyes with more gusto than anyone she’d ever seen, including her ten-year-old brother. “Not you,” he said disdainfully. “Him.”


Previous parts: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3; Part 4; Part 5; Part 6

When the steel doors rolled open again, the Master was lounging on the bed, his arms folded behind his head.

Genre: Angst, drama
Summary: Six years after Bad Wolf Bay, Rose gets a message from another universe.
Excerpt: Rose kept her shoulders squared, her chin high, and her face cold. “You don’t know anything about me.”

“Don’t I?” His eyes narrowed in scrutiny as he turned his attention to Rose. “I’ve met so many like you. Sad little humans with small little lives, trailing around after him, feeling oh-so-special because he chose you.”


Previous parts: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3; Part 4; Part 5

The Doctor clung tightly to Rose's hand as they weaved their way through Torchwood.

Rose stared at her reflection in the bathroom mirror.

Overtop of Torchwood’s protests, the Doctor climbed into the back of the van with the Master.

This is happening and it's been so long that I don't even know how html works anymore.

I am back from watching DivergentCollapse )

I also saw the Veronica Mars movie last week and liked it a lot, but I don't really have a lot to say about it besides "it felt like a very long episode and thank you gift to the fans" and I am fine with that. I feel that a Veronica Mars sequel would cause me less frothing rage than a Divergent sequel tbh.

It has been a ~*magical*~ last few days at the Olympics for Team Canada. I am already sad that I will have many fewer opportunities to say "Jennifer Jones" in conversation next week. MANY THINGS TO FEEL PROUD OF, TEAM CANADA!!! \o/

This is such magnificent trolling.

I am trying to remain cool and ~above it all because a) the books are still the books nothing will ever make OBHWF not exist*; b) probably most of these comments were taken out of context.

Inside though I am like "YEAH JUST USE THE WORD 'DELUSIONAL' NOW. I THINK NOT." LBR all Harry/Hermione shippers have always felt inexplicably smug despite having no reason at all in the universe to be that smug. Like a Maple Leafs fan! I mean obv I always thought JKR wrote a love story so secret not even she knew about it, and now there is validation of that fact.

I am being cool though.**

So next up Gossip Girl writers apologize for Chuck/Blair and admit Blair should have chosen Dan y/y.




*I am 95% over the Harry Potter ship wars, but every time I see someone complain that putting Harry and Hermione together would have been cliche because "the hero always gets the girl," it's like... BUT ONE BIG HAPPY WEASLEY FAMILY, THOUGH? THIS WAS THE NON-CLICHE CHOICE???? Some things there are just no getting over.

**I spent my morning re-reading some of my old Harry/Hermione fic. I tried not to but I might have caught some feelings. :\

I. I AM NOT DEAD but I think sometime over last summer I might have become an adult???? Idk it is truly horrible, make it stop.

In a fit of insanity yesterday, I went skiing with my brother. WHO DOES THAT??? I mean first of all, skiing is really hard. Second of all, it involves strapping pieces of wood to your feet and then sliding down a mountain at high speeds without wearing body armor. That shit is crazy, man. (I have no memories of skiing being this terrifying when I was a kid... and this is what I am saying, becoming an adult is the WORST, don't do it).

II. Truthfully though I am here with ulterior motives. I just finished reading the Divergent series by Veronica Roth and developed all this gross emotional investment + spitting rage and anger at the letdown that was the third book. I don't even know if there is anyone left on this thing that hasn't forsaken LJ for tumblr but I can't be alone in this. Come here and hold me/rant with me because ugh.

Cut for gross emotional investment over a three part YA dystopian series that is not The Hunger GamesCollapse )

III. Briefly, some other things:

-The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who made me so mad that I walked around in a fog of PTSD-induced rage and shock for a week after I saw it, and thinking about it still makes me irrationally mad. Moffat and I are so done professionally for all time. Out of self-preservation, I don't think I will be watching again until he is gone, sorry Capaldi.

-I really enjoyed the beginning of S5 of TVD (I like that Julie Plec watched Orphan Black over the summer and decided that "more Nina Dobrevs" was the solution for TVD because she was correct and it was) but I got bored once the last few episodes switched back to Damon's contrived manpain and Delena's weird and nonsensical drama. Oh well. I think at some point though Katherine has become my favourite character??? I JUST WANT HER TO BE OK! And I get so mad on her behalf that everyone still treats her so shittily for allegedly all the bad things she's done when everyone has done bad things and no one ever blames them. I mean Damon killed Jeremy too, Elena, and you are still doing him on a regular basis, so. But TVD causing me blind frustration = what else is new.

-I meant to spend my Christmas vacation writing my Tony/Pepper fic, and then Divergent came along and ate my brain. Oops. Sorry mrv3000. It's still on my list sort of.

-Members of Team Canada's hockey team will be announced on January 7 and I am stupidly stressed about it. If PK Subban is not named to that team, I might be so mad that I will actively have to root against Canada in the Olympics and I don't know what that will be like.

Meme most recently from redbrunja.

Fandom Tennis Match Meme!

Okay, here's how this is going to work. You comment with a fandom question. I answer it and then ask you a question that has some thematic relevance to the question you asked me.

I. Doctor Who newsCollapse )

II. Okay I know I threatened to write and post Harry/Hermione fic. I haven't yet. BUT stay tuned, it might be coming. Those of you who are judging will not be invited.

III. I don't celebrate Easter because Jewish. The two days off work are great though! I'm visiting my aunt and we are planning a FEAST. Tonight we're going to make tuna tartar (yes raw tuna, it will be delicious.... or possibly terrible, it could go either way tbh) and pie, and tomorrow night we're having steak and asparagus. We've also spent long minutes discussing our wine pairings for each meal. THIS IS WHAT HAPPINESS IS MADE OF.

IV. In hockey news: What is a Pittsburgh Penguin and will it steamroll all lesser mortals in its way to the Cup.

V. ALSO in hockey news: Boston lost today and Prust is back in the lineup tonight. \o/\o/ AND JUST LOOK AT THIS PICTURE IT IS THE MOST PRECIOUS PICTURE:



GORGES IS LIKE A PROUD DAD. AND GALLY COULD NOT BE MORE PRECIOUS. SOMEONE PINCH HIS WEE LITTLE 19-YEAR-OLD ROOKIE CHEEKS.

I. What did everyone get for Chrismukkah? My mum bought me a new winter coat and I am not exaggerating when I say it is probably the highest quality piece of clothing I have ever owned. It is 600-fill power down made from ~100 percent premium European goose~. RIP the goose who died to give me this coat, your sacrifice has not been in vain. It is also water proof and breathable. TBH I don't really know what any of these things mean, IT'S JUST A REALLY NICE COAT OKAY BE HAPPY FOR ME.

II. Also, timely! Montreal got hit with its largest ever one-day snow fall on Thursday so of course I decided the next day would be a good time to visit for the rest of my holiday. It has been an adventure!! And by "adventure," I mean "is it Cuba time yet."

pictures of my street!Collapse )

III. What is everyone doing for NYE? I am going to THIS famous steakhouse. I am pumped. Possibly I will never be able to afford food again.

IV. I did NOT watch the series finale of Gossip Girl (or most of S6), but it's after-effects brought me this perverse and twisted form of joy?? For the longest time, all I wanted was for there to be some sort of POINT or MEANING to it all - I truly think this is the crux of why I had so much trouble letting go - HOW COULD SOMETHING WRITTEN AND PRODUCED FOR SIX YEAR REALLY HAVE ZERO MEANING?? Last night, in a fit of insanity, I even found myself thinking wait hang on I can work with this I feel a fic brewing, there is room here BUT NO, NO, THAT WAY LIES MADNESS YOU CAN'T MAKE SENSE OUT OF NONSENSE. The series finale was so devoid of meaning (or logic or common sense) that I have finally, almost, nearly accepted that I watched five seasons of a show that had no point. I am honestly not sure there has ever been a show that was as meaningless as Gossip Girl.

It is either laugh or accept insanity and I chose the former. That said, I think in a weird way I'm going to miss the Internet hate-watching it?? IDK here have a video and think about how this was the one beautiful thing in Gossip Girl's meaningless world:

To celebrate, I bring you a video of Stefan and Elena riding a motorcycle Titanic style:



Don't say I never give you guys anything. #THIS IS A REAL SCENE THAT HAPPENED #AND IT IS THE BEST OK

Also, this is my new favourite holiday article: Is a deep-fried Christmas turkey worth the risks? That is a question we will all have to ask ourselves this holiday season.

I miss writing things that aren't pleadings. :\ And okay, I don't really have a main fandom at the moment, but still, the only thing I've written in the last three months is Dan and Blair having a conversation about Blair's zombie apocalypse preparation booklet (the world doesn't need to see this).

So.... give me a prompt! I can't promise it will come to anything, but it might help:

Fandom:
Pairing:
Prompt:

Unless it's a song lyric prompt. I cannot work with those. Or Sherlock.

I. Recently around town these advertisements have started springing up everywhere. And on first glance, it's like 'oh how nice, an advertisement talking about how great Canada is as a country and how proud we should feel for living in it.... OH GOD THIS IS PRO OIL SANDS WHAT THE FUCK NOOO I TAKE IT BACK KILL MY WARM AND FUZZY FEELINGS RETROACTIVELY I AM SORRY I REPENT." And the worst part is, it's like I have temporary amnesia because it keeps happening. Look, I took a picture of the ad on the bus stop near my office:



what even is this. There should be laws against it.

II. Okay I haven't actually seen TVD this week but I've read all the spoilers and LMAO WHAT. under cutCollapse )

III. What is this new LJ layout and how do I get the old one back.
