Inevitable (Martha-Tenth Doctor | G | 1,286 words): The Doctor thinks it's time to take Martha home, yes really. This is an fun look at the Doctor and Martha at the beginning of their acquaintance when they're still getting to know each other. Because despite what the Doctor says, there's no way he's taking Martha home just yet, and his thought processes about why she needs to go home are adorably and obviously mistaken.

Excerpt:
If she did fancy him, it was really all her own fault (and reason number six million and two that they needed to part ways, pronto). It’s not as if he was encouraging it at all. Not in the least. Not once in the short time they’d known each other; not since the moment they met in the hosp--

Something occured to him and he abruptly turned, grinned at his reflection, and winked.

Oh.

That was rather endearing. Charming, even.

A Payphone, Somewhere in Norway (Mickey/Jake | PG | 464 words): Mickey calls Jake while in Norway. Aww, Mickey and Jake are familiar and playful with each other.

Excerpt:
You bin to see Gran?

Did she? Again?

It's 'cos she reckons you're too skinny.

Five Companions (Six, Really) Who Never Gave Ten Heartburn (Well, Hardly Ever) (ensemble | G | 500 words): Several different takes on how the tenth Doctor would interact with his various companions, all of them fun. My personal favorite is Cissie and Greta because I would love to watch that if it were the actual show. (The actual show's pretty dang good too, but it'd be even more awesome with those two.)

Excerpt:
"A time machine? That's so cool! I wish Robin were here, he'd think it was cool. Can I visit my grandfather?" Bart asked, racing around the blue box fast enough to create a mini-tornado.

The Doctor unlocked the door with more force than absolutely necessary. "No."

"Please?"

The More Things Change (Mickey | G | 1,844 words): When Rose and the tenth Doctor stop by, Mickey's not sure what to make of the pair of them. Oh, Mickey. He's a regular guy trying to make sense of a really odd situation, and he's doing his best.

Excerpt:
Rose told him where they'd been, who they'd talked to -- the Time Agents who'd been on Jack's trail, the waypoints and stations they'd posted "Have you seen this man?" notices at.

Mickey nodded and half-listened, wishing Rose would ask about her mum or Shireen or anything to do with her life. Finally, he asked, "Would you go through this much trouble for me?"

" -- What?"

"If it was me lost out there, somewhere. Would you spend all this time looking for me?"

She stared at him. "Of course I would, Mickey. You know that. Don't you?"

Edit (Dawn | PG | 3,564 words): The Doctor, Rose, and Jack stop by Sunnydale while Dawn's being made by the monks. Which is just a nifty concept since it involved a good bit of rewriting the past and, well, Doctor Who's all about playing with time.

Excerpt:
The Doctor peered at an instrument he'd brought from the TARDIS and said "There's something odd about this whole section of space-time, I don't think it's quite real. Even so we need to be careful. We're only a few years in your past, you're still a schoolgirl on the other side of the world. Don't be tempted to phone home, or take advantage of your knowledge of the future."

Rose shivered and said "Right, like nearly ending the world last time didn't teach me anything at all." Then what he'd said sunk in, and she added "What do you mean, this time isn't real?"

"It's an Edit" said the Doctor.

18 Seconds (Nine | G | 1,438 words). During the 18 seconds when the ninth Doctor leaves Rose in the pilot episode, he travels. All the scenes are great for showing all the amazing possibilities there are when you have a TARDIS. The scenes connect to each other and the series itself nicely, so that everything comes back around.

Excerpt:
He doesn't care about humanity or Earth all that much, but he keeps on coming back. It might have something to do with one of his previous generations. Or maybe it's the food.

Certainly not the weather. But, then again, he did choose an ice age.

Snow builds up against the TARDIS while he sits in a cave, tracing his fingers over still-tacky paintings of bison and bears and men.
