The next part of Growing Pains is on its way to the Teaspoon mods, and here's the now customary teaser...

He wanted to call the Doctor. His Doctor. His ancient, wise, dependable Doctor. The one person in the Universe he could always rely on to know what to do.

But for the same reasons he had not too long ago forced a clearly traumatized man to tell him what had just happened in his personal timeline, Jack knew that calling his current Doctor was not an option. The situation was fragile enough just with one Doctor here, out of his own time. To bring another would be irresponsible. He’d learned better than that from the man in question.

But that left him on his own with the past come to life before him, looking to him for a safe haven. A past that was currently trying to crawl into a nearly empty mug of tea to escape the demons that were clearly hounding him.

Yay! New chapter.
*does dance, and is happy*
I will read, and comment.
Ok, so I'm actually commenting as I read so ignore the fangirlishness if it disturbs you.
Love the Doctor being guilty about smiling. it's perfect. Poor doctor...:(
And Jack being unsure, and wanting to call the Doctor, and then being mature and deciding to take it on himself. It shows he's grown up (insert comment about my liddle babeh being all gwown up!)
"A past that was currently trying to crawl into a nearly empty mug of tea to escape the demons that were clearly hounding him"
That is so awesome. That is honestly amazing. I love that line. Best line in it. And I like the Doctor trying not to abuse the timelines any furthur (and I know, I just know that if the Doctor had looked, there would have been a Rose&Nine&Jack picture, and a Ten&Jack picture, and an Eleven&Jack, and all the other latest Doctors&Jack pictures)
And poor Doctor. He's so...aww...poor Doctor. He just makes you want to snuggle him, doesn't he?

Here end incoherent review w/ fangirling.
Amazing as always, write fast!

It would be like when someone as a wall of photos of themself posing with various famous people. Except it would be Jack with all of his various Doctors. :-)

I love reading comments like this one! You've let me see what you were thinking as you read the story, and that's worth its weight in gold.

And the crawling into the teacup line is one of my favorites, too. :-)

I get eaten by grad school periodically... but I promise to update as soon as I can! Thank you so much for commenting. :-)

No, bad grad school, stop eating our Adalia! We need her intact to write more, pretty fic.

That's more like it! Next part of Growing Pains is half done, and I actually have tomorrow off! :-)

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.
