FIC: Clavicle, a drabble series

Title: Clavicle
Author: Adalia

Characters/Pairings: Nine, Rose, Jack
Categories: Friendship and early OT3

Ratings/Warnings: Teen-ish. Off-screen injuries and a bit of on-screen licking.
Summary/Teaser: All Jack sees... is a collar bone.

Author's Notes: So, Wendy posted this awesome drabble tag and I couldn't resist participating. Then she said I should write more of that story, so I added two more drabbles. If you haven't yet, you should definitely take the time to look through all the wonderful drabbles the game of tag has spawned! And you should definitely think about participating. You know you want to... :-D

Drabble One: Jack    |    Drabble Two: Rose    |    Drabble Three: Nine



Drabble One: Jack

All Jack sees, as he lies crumpled and twisted and pinned, is a collar bone.

He doesn’t think about the explosion, the fear, or the pain.

All he sees is a collar bone, exposed where a leather jacket slipped and a woolen jumper was pulled out of shape.

The bone’s owner is frighteningly still, but he doesn’t think about that, either.

He just stares at pale skin stretched over gracefully curving bone.

He thinks about licking it.

Later, after Rose has rescued them and they are all safe, he tries it.

Rose giggles, and the Doctor takes it surprisingly well.


Drabble Two: Rose

Most of the time, Rose isn’t afraid. She knows her boys will protect her.

Then she sees them disappear beneath a collapsing building, and knows real fear.

Freak accident, the natives whisper. Terrible damage. No survivors.

She shouts in angry denial until someone listens and a rescue effort begins. Then she helps, watching bodies and a few lucky survivors emerge.

She’s there when her boys are found, trapped and injured. One unconscious, the other delirious, but both miraculously alive.

Sometimes, Rose is afraid. She knows her boys can’t always protect her.

So sometimes, she’ll just have to protect them instead.


Drabble Three: Nine

Her first reaction is amusement.

But he doesn’t push away Jack, who’s determinedly licking his collar bone, and Rose apparently takes that as license to join in. She approaches him slowly.

He eyes his torn and discarded jumper balefully. It has abandoned him in this time of need.

They’re in the infirmary. Jack’s injuries were awful. Perhaps he’s grateful? Perhaps he’s gone mad.

Rose is beside him now, watching avidly. Jack suckles and it’s all he can do not to squeak in surprise.

Time Lords don’t squeak. They might moan manfully, with proper motivation.

Rose leans in.

The Doctor squeaks.



At the moment I'm not planning to add any more, but who knows.... if the mood strikes I'll add to this post. :-)

I saw these earlier at Wendy's journal and was going to pop back over to comment. They made me lol at work!

Also, appropos of nothing, many months ago when I was just lurking a bit in Who fandom I read your story "Loophole" on Teaspoon and I wanted to tell you how much I liked it. I read the whole thing in one sitting and I still think about it every so often. What a fantastic reimagining of how the end of S3 could have gone.

Yay for lolling at work! :-D

And I'm glad you enjoyed Loophole so much! To this day, that's one of my favorites of my own stories.

Thanks for reading and commenting! :-)

Hi! This is a bit off topic, but I thought this might be the best way to contact you.

I just wanted to thank you again for writing your fic, "Sense". I did this picture inspired by it:

That's the most wonderful sort of off topic thing I've ever seen!

THANK YOU!!! OMG thank you so much for that... the picture is beautiful and nobody's ever done art inspired by one of my stories before! (At least, not that they've shared.)

This is absolutely lovely, and it has entirely made my day! Thank you again! :-D

::huge hugs and lots of happy!grins::

I'm going to go post this to its own entry, so others can see! I'll try to get it up on Teaspoon, too. :-)

Yes! Squeaky Doctor. I don't know why, but I've always like that idea, that the Doctor is not as tough as he thinks he is.
Nice drabbles.

Hehehe... I love squeaky!Doc, too. Especially squeaky!Nine, because squeaky!Ten is canon and you know Nine has to be, too. :-D

Glad you liked the drabbles, and thanks for commenting! :-)

Random licking of collar bones makes me happy. The Doctor squeaking makes me giggle.
This was delightful :D

greetings

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
