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!

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.
