Got to read a lot of fics this past week! Granted, most of them were one-shots, but there are a good few continuous and a couple of new in-progress fics as well!

(Late because my laptop wasn't been cooperative and, really, it's a long list - gotta love cuts sometimes! - so it took me a while to compile and then make sure everyone was here.)


One-shots AND continuous-

Red Roses and Fairy Tales (3/3) by [info]yumimum
Summary - What good was a Time Lord without his sense of reason? His self-preservation? His rules? Rose couldn’t know how she affected him. How his every waking moment was a constant battle between hearts and mind. But how could he ever hope to win, when such a huge part of him wanted to fail?

Last chapter is rated M! Go away kiddies! :P
9/Rose. Oh Little Red, Little Red, do let the big, bad Time Lord into your knickers. ;) A great interpretation of the slight wedge we see between the Doctor and Rose in season one for a short while. Great in-depth thoughts on the two and fantastic dialogue! Did I mention the smut? No? They get it on in the... Go read and find out!

The Plum Blossoms are Falling by [info]tala_hiding
Summary/Excerpt - “When will you be angelic?” he breathes, poetry lacing his lips as he presses them against her overheated skin. “When will you take off your clothes?"

10/Rose. Rated M.
So much love. Seriously. Alien sex pollen. 1960s. Need I say more?

Tiny Explorers by [info]ohfortuneslost
Summary: Written for the Then_There's_Us Challenge 91: AU. He's leaving, and she's staying, but he'll always come back home.

AH 10/Rose. One-Shot.
Very bittersweet. *Is wanting more* With plans of at least two more sequels~!

The Hoarfrost Room by [info]wildwinterwitch
Summary - Rose is locked up in a vast old house in a desert of hoarfrost and fog.

9/Rose.
WOW! Keeps you on your toes. Why is Rose...? Yup. That's all I'm saying.

Where the Ocean Kisses the Shore by [info]mermaids_feet
Summary/Excerpt - The sand was more like gravel, and the water had a hypothermic icy chill, but at least that meant the ocean was blue and clear as opposed to the muddy, sandy green froth that oceans in many places tended to become.

10/Rose.
Just another adventure where it happens again. They're just so them. Lovely use of a prompt!

Drawing the Truth Beneath Her Skin by [info]jessicaqueen
Summary/Excerpt - Images of things she doesn’t recognise and can’t quite comprehend race behind her eyelids like forgotten memories. She tries to block them, but the only thing capable of even slightly drowning them out is the reverberating echo of a howl throughout her mind.

10/Rose.
Whoa! Mind-blowing. Such an interesting interpretation of a certain occurrence...

Halfway Out of the Dark by [info]haveloved
Summary/Excerpt - “I’m always yours, Rose.” “Are you?”

11/Rose
ANGST! HURTS SO GOOD! Rose during her dimension-traveling keeps encountering other versions. He will always be hers.

This Slow Burn by [info]trippy41
Summary - Episode Tag for "Doomsday" and the Doctor's POV.

10/Rose.
It's Doomsday. I shouldn't need to say anything other than BEAUTIFUL ANGST!We C

We Can Be Astonauts by [info]mute_troubadour
Summary/Excerpt - One step out of time, one word, and everything could collapse around them for all she understands. And he goes and asks her to do something so bloody stupid.

11/Rose. PG-15.
Angst and fluff. As I said in my review... WHY DO OUR OTP HURT SO MUCH~?! Another really interesting take on dimension-hopping Rose encountering 11.

As the World Falls Down by [info]timelord1
Summary - Rose Tyler rarely speaks. She is invisible. One day, she decides to take a walk down a tree-lined road to meet the madman that lives at the other end.

9/Rose.
I can't even!!! YOU PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG I'VE BEEN WANTING TO READ THIS! I finally made the time and read it. IT. IS. JUST FANTASTICALLY MARVELOUSLY WONDERFULLY BRILLIANT!!!

Main Sequence by [info]raine_seraphim
Summary - The sun isn't the only thing that's hot in Renaissance Italy...

Rory/Amy. Post-Series 6. (Allusion to sex, but nothing explicit)
Memories that are theirs, but aren't... :'( Written so beautifully!

Summary - Every once and a while a blessing came.

11. Gen. MINOR spoiler to The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe.

In addition, I just started reading

[info]timelord1's Love Feels No Burn sequel to As the World Falls Down - On chapter 2
9, his companions, and~...
Can't say much without ruining AtWFD, but once you read that you'll want more, more, more!!! So, prequel first, then patiently waiting for sequels... :)

and

9/Rose, Jack, and LOTS of other characters. :D   AU/AH.
Also another fic I've been wanting to read since it came out, but didn't wait as long! Perfectly in-character even though it's AU/AH.
