FIC: Growing Pains 2/? - Communicate

The second part of Growing Pains is on its way to the Teaspoon mods. Here's a teaser...

Jack held for a beat longer, before finally speaking again.

"You are welcome here as long as you feel you need to stay, on one condition," he warned. When the Doctor nodded slightly, Jack continued, "I need to know exactly where you are in your personal timeline, or this is too far beyond unsafe and right past courting disaster, directly into unexpectedly eloping with it and then settling down to have sixteen kids together. So I need you to tell me what happened, Doctor."

There was fear in the Doctor's eyes then, just before they slid shut and he turned away again.

Jack let him turn, but moved his hand down to his shoulder and squeezed reassuringly.

Sixteen kids! And more Doctor-angst/reassurance - I like this chapter already, and I haven't even read it yet :-P

Yup... sixteen. It's Jack's talent for creative imagery. :-)

I'm really warming up to this teaser-while-we-wait-for-the-mods idea. It's fun to pick an excerpt that will hopefully make people react the way you did without actually giving away anything much of what happens in the story!

I've read this on teaspoon, but...I don't really review there, my IP is kind of screwy, so instead, I'll comment here on how absolutely awesome you are.
If any readers who haven't seen the chapter are browsing comment....kind-of-sort-of spoilers ensue.
The mute Doctor is totallly, completely, in-character(-ally?) love, as is old-and-wise-Jack, who is still Jack, despite his age and apparent maturity. And you may not remember me, in fact I have no doubt that you'll have forgotten me, but I talked to you on ff.net about your SG-1 fics? YOu remember, huh? No? That's ok, I didn't think you would.
Imagine my surprise when I saw you'd written amazing Dr. Who fics too. My Brother thought I had injured myself or something/
Anyway, back to the point of this long, rambling, completely annoying comment.
Your stories rock. Please write more soon.
:)

Oh, but I do remember! Even though I've sorta faded away from the SG1 fandom despite having that crossover WIP posted on FF.net. I seem to be doing better in the DW fandom, generally.

It's really great to hear from you, though, and I'm so glad you like my DW fics! I should actually be posting more of Growing Pains in the next day or two. :-)

You remember me?
Fantastic! Same with me about SG-1, which is a shame, but I still like to read the occasional story.
Can't wait for the next chapter! I promise I'll comment.

That was me.
Non-signed in me.
But still me.
psst...Am going through your fic back catalogue on Teaspoon.
I love Sense, HEat Tolerance and Aftermath soooo much. And your others are brilliant as well.

I've been known to stalk people on Teaspoon and LJ, myself. I think that's considered a compliment in the world of fanfiction. So I'm glad you're enjoying my Teaspoon archive! I don't see that there's any point to me writing if people can't read and hopefully enjoy the results. :-)

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.
