As soon as the Teaspoon mods get done with it, part four of Growing Pains will be available! Meanwhile, here's a teaser...

The fully dressed Doctor wandered in a while later, as if he had a magic radar for just-ready tea, and settled himself back into his seat from the night before after grabbing a cup from Jack.

As Jack chewed on his toast, he watched the Doctor once more commune with a mug of tea. It almost didn’t matter that the Time Lord wasn’t talking. His thoughts were plainly painted across his face. Guilt and hurt still covered him like shroud, but instead of fixating on it he seemed to just be… empty. The calm waters smothered deep beneath the raging surface of an entire ocean.

In other news... my Gallifreyan Mood Theme is finished! All 132 distinct mood doodles are uploaded and ready to go. The snaggable icon versions are nearly ready, they will get their own post as soon as I figure out how to do an icon table.

Go ahead, click the link and look at the mood theme. It's shiny. And I'm still offering a drabble to the prompt of your choice to the person who can figure out why I drew what I did for 'bitchy'... think Doctor Who related. :-)

The more I look at it, the more I like it! *grins*
No idea about the bitchy, though.

I've been staring at it all weekend, myself, and I haven't got tired of it yet. I suppose I might, eventually, but meanwhile... shiny... :-)

Oo, I wish that went better with my LJ theme... is 'bitchy' anything to do with The Wire, perhaps? If not I have no clue... ;)
Mar. 10th, 2008 05:58 pm (UTC)
Nope, not the Wire, though that's not a bad guess. :-)

Yay! More fic.
Now...how long do the mods usually take?
*goes off to check*
For some reason I thinik bitchy has something to do with Cassandra. I'm not sure why. Probably because it has a stretched out rectangle frowning at me.
I'm thinking Cassandra.
*bounces off to check for fic again*

The mods take anything from minutes to hours depending on when you catch them... I think they've been doing pretty well with such a high-volume archive.

You are completely correct about 'bitchy'... it's supposed to be Cassandra! Seriously, the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks 'bitchy' and 'Doctor Who' has got to be everyone's favorite bitchy trampoline, Cassandra. :-)

You win the drabble prize... what's your prompt?
Mar. 11th, 2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
I win?
Master. Doctor. prompt "This is my timey wimey detector, it goes ding when there's stuff"
...because you so know the master would call him on that.
Mar. 11th, 2008 05:20 pm (UTC)
You win! I hope you enjoy the drabble. :-)

Title: Critical, a drabble for infraredphaeton
Author: adaliazandra
Characters: Simm!Master and Ten
Author's Notes: Post-S3, Simm!Master and Ten traveling imperfectly together on the TARDIS. The Master finds something that amuses him in a TARDIS closet, and he gleefully takes the opportunity to criticize his host.

“Doctor, I don’t mean to be overly critical, but… well, actually, I do. Why have you stuck a postcard to a toaster and left it in a TARDIS closet otherwise full of scientific instruments?”

“Oh! That’s my timey-wimey detector. It goes ding when there's stuff!”

“You are joking. Please, tell me you’re joking. Or have you just finally lost your mind?”

“Of course not! It’s a highly tuned temporal ripple detector. And it also mm-hmm-mf.”

“What was that? Stop mumbling.”

“It also boils eggs. Whether or not they’ve been laid first.”

“I bet that was exciting.”

“You have no idea.”

oh! Oh! That is wonderful!
That is brilliant!
You are brilliant!
...and I think that's the first time I've been mentioned in someone else LJ post. Yay.

But seriously.
Me likee.
Mar. 12th, 2008 11:58 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you liked it! I'll probably be posting it properly in a bit, when I pull together some other drabbles I have lying around. :-)
Mar. 10th, 2008 04:28 pm (UTC)
Just read the chapter, and yay! The Doctor snuggles, and the coral, and him cooking dinner, and bananas~!
Bananas are good.
I also loved the description of him drifting through the New Hub. It was very...hmm...word I'm looking for....poignant. And touching.
I also loved the N-Team.
Can't wait for the next chapter!
Mar. 10th, 2008 06:51 pm (UTC)
Bananas are good. :-)

I'm glad you like the team, I'm never sure about my original characters.

Next chapter (next few chapters, really) should be up pretty quick. Midterms this week, then Spring Break! :-)
Mar. 10th, 2008 08:15 pm (UTC)
YAY! Another brilliant chapter. :) I gushed all over Teaspoon about it, but you know I can't resist coming over here to squee some more. Thank you!
Mar. 10th, 2008 08:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm really glad you're enjoying the story that much. :-)
Mar. 10th, 2008 08:23 pm (UTC)
Words can't describe, my friend. Words can't describe.

::grins like Ten:: You are very good for my ego, you know? I usually like my fic if I go back to read it later, but as I'm working on a story I tend to loose the forest in the trees. So to speak. Happy comments make it easier to keep working on it.

You have to be careful, though...

Bored Maintenance Guy: Hello, University Maintenance Department, how can I help you?

Adalia: Um... we just had an... incident... bit of an ego... sort of... explosion... um. Don't suppose you can send someone down with a mop?

Bored Maintenance Guy: Hold please.

Adalia: Oh, dear. This is not going to end well...
Mar. 10th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
*pets your ego*

Hey, it's my pleasure! I mean every word of it too. :)

Don't worry about the maintenance guy. You're giving him something to do! Unless he was trying to read fanfic on the internet, then shame on you. Hee!

I keep waiting for my dream job, with a boss who loves DW and TW fic, especially mine, and not only lets me work on it while in the office but actually tells me to work on it while in the office! :-)

After reading and thoroughly enjoying "Passing Notes" I thought I'd stop by and see what other goodies were on your journal. And lo, a moodtheme! I think I'll be adopting it (with credit, of course.) Cheers!

Adalia Zandra


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.
