builtofsorrow: (dw | in amongst impossible things)
Posting this before I attempt to kick myself off the internet for the next 20 hours or so and get some sleep/actual work done. (Mostly because I've been working on this for far too long.)

title: Into a Starry Night
rating: G
word count: ~850
character(s): Wilfred Mott, Nancy.
summary: Wilf, during the Blitz.
notes: Meant to be set during 5x03: Victory of the Daleks (because let's face it: a cameo by bb!Wilf would've been brilliant), but there are actually no spoilers as such. There's a lot more to this story, somewhere, and it probably doesn't actually involve Wilf being an orphan, but I totally troped myself right through that, in part to preserve my sanity, because this wouldn't leave me alone in spite of exams. Most of my knowledge of the London Blitz is based on a vague remembrance of history courses, New!Who episodes, and Wikipedia, so… I did attempt to avoid going too in-depth, but if there's anything glaringly inaccurate , I blame Moffat, do feel free to point it out.

For [livejournal.com profile] such_heights & [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden, who are actually much less to blame for this than I am willing to admit. ♥

Title from A Song on the End of the World, by Czesław Miłosz.


[S]ometimes Wilf feels very, very old, like his soul got mixed up with someone else's and put into the wrong body. )

builtofsorrow: (dw | donna noble)
title: On This End of the Telescope (You're Mostly a Ghost)
character(s): Ten, Donna Noble; Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, & Hermione Granger
rating: G
word count: ~2,300
spoilers: DW 4x13 (Journey's End) & Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows. To be extra cautious: [very] vague references to DW 4x2 (Fires of Pompeii), 4x5 (The Poison Sky), & 4x6 (The Doctor's Daughter).
notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] dw_cross.
Title from Jakob Dylan's This End of the Telescope; betaed and inspected by my resident canon expert [livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics (&hearts!)


(here in death you see new adventures grow) )
builtofsorrow: (dw | our hearts are way beyond capture)
title: Beginning After the End
characters: Martha Jones; appearances by Jack Harkness, Tish Jones, the Doctor, and various others.
rating: G (maybe thematically PG?) pretty much, though the song Dust of Ages has one use of the word 'f---ing'.
spoilers: To be safe, all of S3, and references to what I've read in interview spoilers about what Martha's doing during S4.
disclaimer: I don't own any of it (or much else besides).
notes: I've never been totally at peace with the way S3 ended, so in a lot of ways this was an attempt to exorcise those demons. I've been collecting the various songs for awhile now: songs that reminded me of Martha and how she feels about the Doctor and that reflected how the world must have changed for her after everything we saw her go through (or heard about her going through later). As a final note, one bit of fic is reused from my piece No Longer at Ease (In the Old Dispensation), so if it looks familiar, it's because I plagiarised myself.

Compiled & Written for the [livejournal.com profile] lifeonmartha Countdown to Martha.

With infinite thanks to my beta, [livejournal.com profile] lexiedoh.

builtofsorrow: (dw | ten)
title: Ginger Stalking
characters: Ten, Martha, & the Weasleys (of sorts).
rating: G
words: ~1,800
spoilers: None, really.
notes: Just a little something Ten & Martha did might've done whilst stranded in 1969; that is to say, the crackiest of crack fics.

'Blah blah blah, wibbley wobbley, timey wimey,' Martha interrupts, laughing a bit helplessly, though there's a note of frustration in her voice. 'Rather than the lecture on that, can we talk again about why we're out here in the dark looking for Harry Potter?' )
builtofsorrow: (dw | m&j | returned to our old kingdoms)
title: No Longer at Ease (In the Old Dispensation)
fandom: Doctor Who
characters: Martha Jones and Jack Harkness, primarily. Brief appearances by the Torchwood team. Briefer appearances by Tish & Leo Jones.
rating: PGish
words: 3,340
spoilers: DW S3 'Utopia'(11) through 'Last of the Time Lords'(13). References to TW S1 generally, and more specifically 'They Keep Killing Suzie'(08) and 'Combat'(11). (But you don't necessarily need to have watched TW for it to make sense.) No definitive spoilers, per se, unless you have no idea what happens at the end of DW S3.
author's notes: Title from T.S. Eliot's Journey of the Magi.
For [livejournal.com profile] lexiedoh, who swoons with me over Jack, betaed extensively, enabled me along the way, and listened to my angst. Thanks go as well to [livejournal.com profile] un_titled_love & [livejournal.com profile] trinsy_fics, who also betaed & reassured. (♥!)
Any remaining mistakes are, of course, my fault.

...I had seen birth and death/But had thought they were different; this Birth was/Hard and bitter agony for us, like Death, our death/We returned to our places, these Kingdoms/But no longer at ease here, in the old dispensation/With an alien people clutching their gods. )


Feedback & concrit are equally appreciated, adored, and reciprocated with banana daiquiris. ♥

... and Martha hadn't spoken the rest of the night, marvelling at the idea that broken things could be beautiful without being healed. )
