Summary: Set before Turn Left, the dimension canon sends Rose to 1990’s Montreal. She meets the Eleventh Doctor for the first time, but he’s not himself— literally— he’s had to use the chameleon arch. Neither Rose nor the Doctor recognizes the other. That doesn’t stop trouble from finding them (or is it the other way around?) (Not a Human Nature AU)
Prompt: running, jealousy or kisses
A/N: Written for arethestarsouttonight my Secret Santa recipient. Happy Holidays! I hope you like your gift :D
Rose managed to stop running before hitting the brick wall. Jake had got to fix the kinetic energy stabilizer on the dimension canon. It wouldn’t do to break her nose in a parallel universe. She braced herself against the wall and took several deep breaths, until her head had stopped spinning and her heart had slowed down.
I’ve seen many posts on how to make a care kit, so I made my own!
1. Get a box or bag.
- Tupperware bins or containers
- shoe box
- coffee container
- Pencil holder
- Hat box
- Egg crate
- ANY bag or container.
I got two, a big one for at home, and a small one for travel.
My box already had a pattern on it, so I didn’t want to decorate it, but you can if you want!
Fill it with happy things to use when you feel sad!

What’s your absolute favorite beer ever? Dragon’s Milk by New Holland. Seriously. I feel like that beer was made to be a gift from the world especially to me. So craymazing. That means crazy amazing. I had to make up a word to describe how good it is.
Name your top three fictional characters (books only): Who’d you marry, who’d you, uh, be intimate with, and who’ you kill? I’m gonna keep who I’d f and who I’d marry a secret, but I’d kill Joffrey Baratheon. Again and again.
What’s the career path for our marvelous Tess?
I have literally no idea. If you’d have told me years ago I’d be
working with kids at a library I’d have told you you’re delusional. So
as for years from now? Who knows. My fantasy? Running my own brewery/dog
What’s her favorite cookie/baked item?
Fave cookie: Oatmeal chocolate chip. Fave baked item: German
chocolate cake. I’m also extremely fond of doughnuts. I know you didn’t
ask for that info. I just felt compelled to tell you.
What’s her shoe size?
Why are you asking? Are you going to buy me shoes? Do you want to
borrow my shoes? Are you trying to find out if I’m hiding huge, hairy,
hobbit feet under my skirts? The answer is 7 ½.

would choose Cheerios.

especially on our Chicago aldermen and alderwomen.
It’s hard for me to believe, but I’ve been working in libraries since 1981, where I’ve typed and filed catalog cards and planned new
buildings. Other than libraries, I’ve also worked in a metal shop; ask
me about it some time.
What did you wear to prom? What did I wear to prom? I
graduated from high school in 1979 in rural Oklahoma. It probably would
have been a leisure suit (who remembers those things), bluegray, with
one of those shirts with ruffles. I probably would not have worn a tie,
just to be different. My hair was very long, so that would have been
part of the look too. But, alas, I didn’t go. We’ll all just have to
imagine what it would have been.
Kelly Kietur is an archivist at a private archive in the Metro Detroit area. She enjoys archival advocacy, trying to bridge the divide
between librarians and archivists, being a loudmouth on the internet,
the internet in general, textile arts, and making new friends.
What or who is your aesthetic idol? I
can’t pick one so here’s a list: old internet/computer aesthetics,
1970s interior design, vintage Pyrex, Lil’ Kim’s "Crush on You” video,
your grandma, holographic everything. My aesthetic inspiration changes
daily so it’s hard to pin a lot down.
Where did you get them glasses, gurl? They
came from a local store by my house! They are vintage glasses so I
don’t even know where you’d find another pair. I mean probably on the
internet somewhere, but I don’t have a model name or anything.
Who are your library crushes? -Caitlin Brennecke, who has the maddest hustle I’ve ever seen - April Conant, strong, sometimes silent, can leap across the state of Michigan in a single bound - JP Porcaro, big personality, even bigger heart, the realest dude in the game - everyone else out there hustling trying to make their libraries/archives/information palaces great, I see you and I love you

How do you give yourself cat eye makeup? It
takes quite a bit of patience and a steady hand. I actually took stage
makeup classes in high school and college so part of it is tons of
practice but whenever I need a
refresher I watch youtube videos.
How do you remember all your brilliant rhymes and songs? It
comes from my background in theater. Most of the time I was in a show
and memorizing music and dialogue for another show but really I don’t
know. The lame answer = I just
do. Just between you and me sometimes my mind goes blank and then I
just make up rhymes.
Who are your library crushes? So
much pressure and so many crushes! Ok here goes… Courtney Young,
James McNutt, Amanda L. Goodman, Marian McLeod and my former work
husband Britton Ozburn
Amanda Brennan is an internet librarian who specializes in researching the history of
memes and other viral content throughout the web. She is currently on
the Content & Community team at Tumblr where she explores and
evaluates trends throughout the network.
What is her favorite thing about librarianship? Knowing
all the things. Or at least how to find all the things. Being an expert
of knowledge is what drew me to the profession and what keeps me going.
If she could have a super power what would it be? To be able to stop time. Mostly so I can have about 5 extra hours a day to do all the stuff I want to do.
What is the one piece of clothing she can’t live without? Right
now, the scarf in my photo. It’s a giant blanket and super cozy. But
year round, the skirt in my photo. I love it so much, I own it in three

Hey, I saw you at the Edmonton Expo today! I love your cartoons, they're always so cheerful and fun. I myself like to cartoon but am suffering from "cartoonist's block"; could you tell me about how you come up with inspiration?
Thanks so much for visiting! Everyone (everyone!!!) faces creative blocks, so try not to let it get you down! There are lots of different strategies to get out of a funk: change of scenery, change of pace, technical exercises and studies (try going to a coffee shop and doing a study of something you’re really unfamiliar with!)… I think one of the best ways is to go looking for stuff that you like, whether that be film, cartoons, comics, books, crafts, knitting… anything! Go consume some things that get you excited. I think lots of people will tell you that.
If you’re looking for some good motivation words, I love (looove) listening to Junot Diaz talk about creative work, and there’s also this great excerpt from an Ira Glass interview. Both of those usually pick me up when I’m feeling frustrated. Hope that helps! Keep drawing!!!
