By request, I bring you a great whacking list of Eleven-era fic which I enjoy and find reasonably well written. This isn't complete. I couldn't for the life of me find the one where he asks Sarah-Jane if seven year olds make appropriate companions again... which is a shame because it was good, and that one where Wee!Amy meets all of the other Doctors out of order during the 12 years.... And I'm sure I'm forgetting some. I know I'm missing a whole whack of good River ones (in fact, I don't think I have any River ones on this list, for shame). Probably I'll add to it as time goes on. But, for the moment, and in no particular order....
( A really long list of fic )
My contribution to the walk-into-a-bar ficathon. I apologize for my bad accents, my bad characterization, and, well, this in general. It very clearly sucks on multiple levels.
Title: Conflict Resolution
Your prompt: Mac Taylor walks into a bar and meets Annie Cartwright
Fandoms: CSI NY and Life on Mars (UK)
Characters/pairings: Mac Taylor meets Annie Cartwright
Rating/warnings: Well, it hasn't been beta'd or britpicked, but other that it's safe for the kiddies to read.

If you don't know what that is check out the link. It is further proof that the internet's great potential for awesome can, in fact, be harnessed for good.
And, while we're on the subject of the internet being made of win, I've really got to finish my help_haiti story. I've got about 3,000 words written. Yay! It keeps trying to turn into a multi-chapter giant, but I want a timely delivery not another never-ending-WIP.
Anddd... for something completely different.
I did a bit of icon rearranging last night. Unfortunately, I accidentally deleted one of my favourites. The "Doctor! Time Lord! Yeah!" / "Donna! Human! No!" animated one. It doesn't appear to be saved to my computer. If anyone knows where I could get it back, or else has a suggestion for a good Donna replacement icon, I'd love them forever.
Summary: Seven, Ace and Hex go for a holiday. Of course, these things never turn out quite as planned...
Word Count: 3161 for this chapter
It's up! That's a like a record! Thank you Teaspoon mods!
Secondly, I've finally finished that epic Seven, Ace, and Hex story I've been talking about for ages. So, as soon as I manage to send it off to my beta I'll be able to start posting. Yay!
However, there's one other thing that's still lacking... and that's a title! Any good ideas? Anyone? Because my creativity cells are well and truly drained.
A bit of random fic from when I really REALLY ought to be working on other things. As with almost all my lj fic this carries the Not Complete, May Never Be Completed, and the Not Beta'd warnings. This is set directly after The Lazarus Experiment, which I haven't seen for a bit, so excuse any flubs in the carry-on scene.
I do not own Doctor Who. This is probably for the best.
Title: Resting Place
Word count: Approx 2000
Characters: Ten, Martha, the TARDIS because she's awesome
Enjoy random fic.
(and I was trying so very, very hard to avoid the 'vengeful religious type' stereotype, but then it just sort of happened anyways. Sorry.)
(and yes, I know there are other things that I ought to be working on. Again, I'm sorry. I'm SO sorry.)
It's funny how things can expand; balloons, fics, friendships. Balloons have a point where they stop expanding and explode. Fics and friendships can go on forever (though, I'd rather wish the fics wouldn't). abbyromana and I started co-writing this story something like two years ago. She's been incredibly patient with me since I'm probably the absolute worst co-author you could think of; I /never/ get things done for deadline.
Anyways, in an attempt to job ourselves into finishing and properly editing this story I'm going to be posting it up here. Enjoy.
Title: Rewriting the Past
Characters: Eight, the Rani
This Chapter Word Count: 3596
As I remember, I wrote this on request for abbyromana , and I'm posting it now because I think it's slightly funny even if it does give off an air of trying too hard:
( CRACK WARNING! )
Anyway, there's also this random Ten and Christina dialogue. Which, in actually fact, I came up with about two weeks ago in a fit of boredom, but shh. I've been playing with it on the sly since then. Oh plot bunnies, why do you torment me so?

Title: Blending in
Word Count: 700 (aprox.)
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Ten, Jenny

( Here be fic! )
The first ten people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, requesters should post this in their journal, offering in return fanworks of the kind they enjoy doing. Fic? Icons? Meta?actually, I'm fine making icons as well as drabbles, even though I'm admittedly not that great at it. It's amusing, yes, yes it is. Also, drabbles might turn into fic, beware. I shouldn't be doing this really, there are other fics on the stove already, boiling away -
but, done is done, so request away. I think you already know my fandom of choice.
Edit: There are still FIVE slots left.
So, I've finally contributed money to that great and noble company which we call Big Finish. I got two audios: Night Thoughts (which I didn't like much over-all, but had some great character moments) and Arrangements for War (which I liked quite a bit, except for the ending which made me scratch my head a bit; I couldn't figure out why the Doctor was willing to allow all of the collateral damage that the love story brought about; and why he seemed relatively unconcerned by said collateral, but meh. Was a good story and good character moments). I highly recommend.
Anyway, I'm back at work on my Seven-Ace-Hex jungle thriller thing, though I should really, really, REALLY be working on my WIPs (I did plug in a new 2000 words for Forever Tomorrow though, I'm just trying to get the conclusion sorted... I knew where I was going with that story, and then it all just sort of got away from me).
What I want to know is, do any of you think there'd be an audience for a story which contains: a spot-light stealing OC who swears a lot, a Big Finish character (Hex), an-absent-for-most-of-the-fic Doctor (Seven), a-half-dead-for-quite-a-bit companion (Ace), and a combination of near-future politics (and by near I mean, fifty years hence, and in the DW universe), random historical stuff, archaeology, and aliens? And timey-wimey, lots of timey-wimey... It's also looking to be quite long, if I ever get it done that is. I've got around 6000 words and I'm just finishing up the second chapter. So, probably a doosey.
Also, is anyone familiar enough with Seven, Ace, and Hex to be willing to beta for them? I'm thinking this will be a relatively early on adventure to make up for the fact that I haven't heard most of their audios, but I'm afraid I'm getting the dialogue wrong and maybe contradicting established characterisation?
Mostly I'm just concerned people aren't going to stand for reading half a chapter of my OC stamping around swearing.
