I've done the unthinkable.

Oh, and I've also posted the last bit of Heat Tolerance on the Teaspoon. Here's a short teaser while you wait for it to clear the mods...

“No no no,” the Doctor denied, rubbing his face with his palms and then sliding his hands up into his hair, mussing it in a familiar gesture of irritation. “Are you even listening to me? I can’t.”

“Can’t, or won’t?” Jack pressed. “What are you so afraid of?”

The Doctor’s only response was an inarticulate noise, full of frustration and a hint of disgust. He pushed off from the sofa, standing in preparation to beat a hasty retreat from Jack and his difficult questions.

But Jack had decided that enough was enough. His hand darted forward, catching the Doctor’s sleeve and tugging him backwards.

 

But... back to the important thing. I've done the unthinkable.

I've written porn.

Not sweet/hot/cute/crack/OT3 porn, which I would not be nearly as much embarassed about.

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I spend way too much time on dw_slash and the things that happen there regularly eat my brain. This time I was weak and I gave in and started typing.

That's right.

I wrote snowgrouse-manip-inspired Master/Doctor Life-on-Mars-ogodpoorsam-crossover noncon-bondage-mindfuck porn. I've never even seen Life on Mars.

And that's not the embarassing part.

It's not even good porn. I know it's bad, because I let it sit for a couple of days and read it again. It's... bad.

And now I'm thinking about trying to fix what even I could tell was bad about it. And then letting it sit for a few more days to see if it's still bad. Rinsing and repeating until it no longer makes me cringe. And then pleading the other denizens of dw_slash for a porn beta willing to be ruthless. And then fixing it some more. And then actually posting it.

Because, oh Rassilon's Rubbers (take that to mean what you will, but at least it's alliterative), it's bad. And it offends my sensibilities, and I want it to stop being bad so I won't feel like I'm a cheap, bad porn writer.

So... yeah.

I'm the anonymous reviewer who posted the message just above, but as usual with me, I pressed the wrong buttom at the wrong time...:-o

Well, back on track!

I loved the notion that Martha and Jack are there for the Doctor. I didn't like Martha's comment to the Doctor in "42" when she said they hadn't needed him. He looked so lost at the moment that it came out as rather careless of her - even though she probably didn't mean it that way. So I liked that your story sort of allowed her to make up for that.

As for your Jack, he's a delight.

The nightmares scenes are so well written, very powerful. The moment when the Doctor called out was Rose was moving, yes, but I was even more moved when he called Romana...somehow she's like a symbol of his life before all went wrong, so this mention of her at such an emotional time was spot on!

It's always interesting when an author manages to put the Doctor into a vulnerable situation while keeping him in character, and you're very good at it, IMHO.

The Doctor drifting off to sleep anywhere just like a cat was also a very nice touch. Poor dear, he sounds like he's in dire need of a nice warm cuppa at that point! Perfect served with Jack cuddles :-)
The whole cuddling with Jack was very believable, by the way. Like in "Sense" it feels like the characters really love and care for each other.

Thanks for another lovely story :-)

That's exactly how I think of it. If she was there at the end of the War with him, she's linked in his memories both to the War and to their travels together. So she symbolizes both life "before" and the transition to life "after".

"It's always interesting when an author manages to put the Doctor into a vulnerable situation while keeping him in character, and you're very good at it, IMHO."

That's pretty much exactly what I'm trying to do in most of my fics, so it makes me very happy to hear that you like the results. Thank you again for reading and leaving such wonderful reviews! :-)

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.
