it also stands for the doctor

anonymous asked:

I've just been diagnosed with moderate scoliosis and it's more likely to progress rather than stay dormont. It causes me great difficulty and pain to walk, stand, and even lay down. That being said I want to be a doctor with every fiber of my being, I also don't really want to go into research. With the demands of residencies, do you think it's still possible? Are there possibilities of accommodations being made since I cannot stand for more than 20 minutes? Thanks in advance.

Hi anon!

Before jumping into the conversation regarding residency, or even med school, I want to just encourage you to continue to take care of yourself and improve your health as much as possible. It’s a tough situation and I hope whatever can be done will be done for you! 

That said, during the first and second years of med school, we do a LOT of sitting. Sitting in lecture, primarily. Even during gross anatomy, you’ll be able to grab a chair or a seat. My concern leans more towards the third and fourth year of med school, particularly because during rotations it is hard on the body. You would have to talk to your med school up front about accommodations, and yes, starting even during the first year of med school. 

There are residencies that are physically demanding, such as radiology or pathology. However, radiology still has an interventional radiology portion which requires doing procedures and pathology does require looking into microscopes which could cause you to hunch over for long periods of time.

Although your scoliosis is likely to progress, there are treatments like braces, medical pain relief, and surgery if it is that severe. Before progressing on to med school, I would first get an idea from your physicians a) what progression is going to be like (10 minutes or less of standing? trouble breathing? etc.) and what interventions are available to you to manage your scoliosis. Have a good health game-plan, reliable physicians on your side, and a good support system intact before proceeding. 

Top 10 Comics of 2016 (Objective Facts)

Welcome to the top 10 comics of the year, these are comics released in print in single issues. There is several comics I wanted to read that I had not got the chance to read in single issues so they won’t be included on this list. These are 10 damn fine comics I read this year and I hope if you haven’t read them you give it a look.

Squirrel Girl:  A sadly declining star for me, last year Squirrel Girl was no doubt at the top of my lists but this year I feel a bit less engaged with it. This is actually pretty common around all of Marvel with Civil War 2, relaunches, universe changing event after universe changing event it makes it hard to feel attached. Still Squirrel Girl is full of laughs with some stand out stories that came out this year like dealing with Doctor Doom from the past after being sent further into the past. We also had the stand out choose your own adventure issue where subtly Koi Boi is revealed to be a trans man and that is super awesome!

Wic/Div: This comic is the serious, it is not tonely the same as the others but I adore it.  We have gods walking among us on earth, mystery, betrayal, queerness, action, great designs, and a great book. If you want a story that is crafted masterfully and can invoke a wide range of emotions then The Wicked + The Divine is for you.

Space Battle Lunchtime: When Oni Press announced their new lineup this was the title that stuck out to me the most. Turns out my gut feeling was right as this book transports the reader to this new world of aliens that is fascinating to watch unfold. One creator managed with help from editors and what not to do the art, colors and storytelling for this epic cooking show in space. This is one of the most fun energetic books I have ever read. The only problem with this series is it goes by so fast but with only one issue left getting them all together is a great idea. If you want to watch a funny space cooking show and a cute lady on lady romance then come here.

Backstagers: This wasn’t a title I was expecting to even buy. I mean all boy lumberjanes sounds cute but I generally, as you’ll find on this list, don’t read stories about dudes. However, this book is fantastic, fun, queer, and all the great things that Lumberjanes is. I think Backstagers does an amazing job of dispelling the toxic masculinity present in much of male lead media. The creative world backstage is fantastic, it has such a great visual style and everyone who works on this project has everything in them in it.

Jem and the Holograms: The truly outrageous gift that just keeps giving. I love the story, Sophie is like my favorite artist and even with her leaving we have had some solid people taking over and there’s a lot of fun to be had with this series. I do worry about future placement but I am very excited for Misfits and this year is all about this year. With stand out scenes like Blaze coming out, the misfits and holograms working together, the cuties of a 3rd rival band, and more all in play this year I am at the front hoping they will let me on stage.

Princeless: Princeless is a modern classic, a series that every volume is great for all ages. This year I read a lot of Princeless, my little sister adored reading volume 1 for the first time.  More then that I adored reading all the volumes and the short stories of Princeless. This is one that works for the whole family and manages to really go over a ton of great stuff. We have our hero learning new perspectives, saving people, exploring the world, she is a fantastic protagonist.

Kim and Kim: Kim and Kim the queer bffs that do that bounty hunting thing. They have amazing chemistry and are the kinds of loser badasses I love. They screw up a lot, they can be kind of an asshole but their hearts are in the right place. We follow them in one journey this year and it’s a fun journey to follow. Also like it has a trans writer and latnix gals on the art team so that is pretty badass too. This stories only problem is an ending that feels a bit rushed.

Jonesy: This was the biggest surprise for me comics wise in 2016. I saw it and was automatically charmed by the art. I decided it was worth risking wasting 4 bucks on. So i did and haven’t looked back since. The funny world, the endearing characters, the general feeling that this comic is different without trying hard to be. Jonesy is queer,  she’s latnix, she’s funny, she’s a bit of a loser but in a way that makes you feel okay to be a loser too. Jonesy is a story that makes me happy whenever I read it, it’s always at the top of my stack, it’s a book that I can count on. The fact it isn’t number 1 but might be in my top 10 series of all time just says how great comics have been this year.

Raven the Pirate Princess: Raven the Pirate Princess is that book that no one really talks about but should be a staple of everyone’s pull. It’s so fun, funny, illustrated so well and it feels like a massive breath of fresh air. Amazing comedy, a bunch of queer ladies, women of all sizes, skin colors, and we even have some varying ability. It’s great to see so much diversity threaded into this epic scaling tale of a women trying to get what was stolen from her by her brothers. 

Angela Queen of Hel: Angela Queen of Hel is one of my favorite stories of all time. It joins the hallowed ranks of other classics in my mind and despite a few issues moves far past them. The series being canned on issue 7 means so much potential was thrown away and we lost. This story is the most compelling romance I have ever read and it’s such a badass story too. Conquering hell to get your lesbian love back is super cool and then the follow up story is an awesome cap to show their relationship past the climax. No matter what Marvel does to the pair we will always have this story to look back on and cheer for.


She knew only someone as kindhearted as you would stand with him when no one else would. She also was aware that you were the only one who could put up with that narcissistic man. Well, you and Wong (partially).

“Darth Flopsy” – for @brawlite because I also like the idea of Kylo Ren having a HUMUNGOUS BUNNY RABBIT

Kylo Ren and General Hux stand side by side in the Finalizer’s medbay, ignoring one another. 

A medical officer bustles in clutching a datapad. “Ah, sirs.”

Both men acknowledge the doctor. They still do not acknowledge each other.

“Let’s start with you, General, and miss Millicent.”

The cat is sleeping on a small high sided cot. There is a shaved patch at the base of her tail.

“How is she? When can she come home?”

“Miss Millicent is responding well to antibiotic treatment, and we have cleaned the wound. It needs to be kept clean and bacta cream applied every eight hours. If you can commit to that sir, then we can release her into your care.”

“Of course I can commit to that.” 

The cat stirs. “Oh, Millie, I was so worried when they kept you in overnight. Daddy’s here now and we’ll be going home, and I shall never let that nasty rabbit and that horrible man near you ever again.”

Hux turns round to face the suddenly worried medical officer. “Why are you keeping her next to this vile murderous creature? She’ll be traumatised.”

“Hey,” says a dark voice , in a tone of wounded pride. “Don’t slander my bunny rabbit.”

“Your bunny rabbit sunk its vicious poisonous teeth into my darling Millie!”

“Darth Flopsy was defending himself! She hit him! And he doesn’t have poisonous teeth.”

Darth. Flopsy? You call him Darth Flopsy?”

“I do. That’s his name. He’s a good bunny and your horrible little fleabag was intimidating him.”

“Fleabag? My Millie does NOT and has NEVER had fleas, I give her all the treatments and this is a VERMIN FREE SHIP.”

Ren pouts.

Hux carries on. “With the possible exception of YOU and the unsanctioned animals you bring on board. I should have you fumigated every time you step off that shuttle of yours.”

This is too much for Ren, who steps right into Hux’s personal space. “I should be very careful if I were you, and I should remember who I was talking to and what powers could be brought to bear…”

“Gentlemen? Sirs?” The medical officer’s interruption breaks the spell.

“I do apologise, Major. On behalf of Ren, also.”

“Now, Commander Ren, sir, if we could turn to your companion”

Ren leans over the other cot and makes kissy faces at the enormous rabbit occupying it.

“Darth Flopsy has sustained a few superficial wounds, just here on the face from the other animal’s front claws…”

“She’s a brave kitty” Hux says. “Aren’t you, Millie? Yes.”

“…and here on his belly from the back claws. He was quite lucky, as I understand a cat’s back paws can do quite a bit of damage.”

“Vicious cat,” Ren hisses.

“Brave kitty cat. Good kitty cat.”

“The stitches will dissolve in a couple of days time. Try not to let him scratch them.”

“I won’t.” Ren reaches in to the cot and strokes the rabbit’s ears. “Look at your face, Flopsy. Just like a real Sith Lord. Just like Grandfather.”

Look I’m not good in writing such things but I’ve noticed something. All (well, maybe not all but certainly the most) references Mary got directly from the canon are bad ones. First of all didn’t we got the most obvious one at all. The way John and Mary met and got to know each other in the canon is written in a very romantically way. And yet they just skipped that part.

In the adventure of the empty house Moran, the villan of the story is fooled by a dummy in an vacant house (sound similar?)

In the charles augustus milverton story, Holmes and Watson break into Milvertons office just to see milverton got shot by a mad woman

Also the AGRA stick is a reference to the AGRA treasure in the canon. In the canon this treasure is descriped by doctor watson as something that would stand between John and Mary

Well and of course we do have that beautyfull shot of her 

But still they kinda characterize her as a good person,don’t they ? When you read the subtext she’s clearly not but Mofftiss tried to convince us that she shot Sherlock to save him.

In the Lying Detective they do the same thing. Mary sends this weird DVD telling Sherlock to put himself in danger so John could save him so John would be saved. (Already sounds weird, doesn’t it ?)

Well, the lying detective is the adaption of the dying detective and this episode does stick cloesly to the canon.

In the canon culverton tries to kill Holmes as well. He sends him a little Box by post.  In that box was a sharp spring wich was poisoned and supposed to kill Holmes. I didn’t open it though, but he pretended that he did and that he was about to die. He did put that box on the mantelpiece.

Well in the episode the reason Sherlock nearly dies was the DVD send from Mary by post. The DVD he actually opened and watched and after this he did put it on the mantelpiece.

This message was supposed to kill Sherlock, it was pure chance that John found the DVD in time to save him. Mary wanted to kill Sherlock in a way that would have destroyed John as well.

So the question is why would they let someone who was portraited over the whole series as a villian narrate the last words. And why would they use the same poisoned box reference again when they would have thought that this ‘ bros forever thing ‘ is a good ending?

There is so much hate going on right now and already hate crimes have spiked here in America. This is such a terrible thing and I am utterly horrified. I read this great article on a way to show solidarity

There isn’t much that I want to say about the president elect, but there is something I want to ask of you. Two things that I wish to ask of you.

First of all, please don’t kill yourselves. Emotions can be incredibly difficult but suicide does not end the pain. It only passes it onto someone else. My heart aches every time I hear of another suicide no matter who it is. You break the hearts of the nurses, the doctors, the emts, who try to save your life. They love you, I love you, so many others love you now and those you have yet to meet.

I also beg of you, please stand up to hate. Do not stand idly by. Be a witness, be a bystander that interrupts hate and possible assaults. Be open, be spacious, be radical in loving your neighbors, your LGBT+, your Muslims, your black people, your native americans, your hispanics, protect your fellow Americans and Immigrants. Please stop hate.

Please do not let this hate continue.

I love all of you, every one of you. You are all so incredibly precious. I wish I could protect you all from this deep rooted hatred. I wish I could heal all of us and our communities. I wish I could bridge this great gulf that has opened up between people. I know, I know, this election has revealed much, but it has revealed such tragedy my heart breaks.


1. Joe (an infant child) with his angry teeth-baring GRRR! face has mastered the Angry Elbow, but not so much the Angry Punch which despite the angryness of his teeth-baring GRRR! face is way more like a rib-tickling poke but hey, he IS very young.

2. Laurence (an angry choirmaster) on the other hand HAS fully mastered the Angry Punch although I think he’s as surprised as anyone – anyone being the guy standing behind him – at how effective and also painful the Angry Punch turned out to be.

3. Malcolm (an absolute bastard) is in this instance an absolute bastard for punching Poor Glenn in the first place and then making the extremely dubious claim he actually meant to hit the wall, but he’s REALLY an absolute bastard for making terrible puns about it afterwards.

4. The Doctor (an impassioned Time Lord) on the other hand absolutely DOES mean to hit the wall over

and over

and over again

for what turns out to be literally four and half billion years until he finally breaks on through to the other side

after very much taking the long way around.

“Do you even understand medicine?”  The words landed like a punch in the stomach.  It was 3:30 AM and I had taken my 4th admit while also managing a patient with SVT and one who was rapidly decompensating.  My senior was visibly stressed and I was the target that happened to be standing in front of her.

We had disagreed on the plan of care for one patient.  And then I had wanted to increase a patient’s pain meds, but apparently my proposal would have been too much.  It was clear that with all that was going on she needed the help of a fully functional resident, not just me, the lowly intern.

Welcome to night float.

They say that night float is where you “earn your stripes.”  In essence, few good things happen at night and the bad things happen quickly.  It is your job to answer pages, triaging what is important and what can wait until the day, and take admits from outside hospitals and the ER.  It is a time where you learn a lot about medicine and yourself as a physician.

I felt tired and worthless.  With each mistake I made my self-esteem spiraled and I became more distracted, making more mistakes.  I started to put orders in on the wrong patient.  I added admit orders that were already done.  I lost a note that I didn’t save.  The night was cascading into an internal chaos, where self-doubt and fatigue brought me to a point of being unable to make decisions.  But I pushed through, despite being reamed by my senior resident.  And somehow I survived.

I went home as the sun rose.  I felt defeated, on the verge of tears.  Was I cut out to be a doctor?  Did I make a bad choice in doing medicine?  Is everyone going to know me as the weak intern?  I slept that day and returned as the sun was setting, the questions still percolating internally.

But that night was better.  As was the night after.  My senior resident apologized.  Life went on and my reviews on the next rotations were extremely positive.  

Being a doctor is not anything like what I expected.  There are so many things they cannot teach you in medical school, the least of which is that you are fallible.  You are going to make mistakes and people are going to be upset about that.  To my knowledge I have never made a mistake that made it to the patient, but one day I know that will happen.  But if you let those small mistakes affect you it will quickly spiral out of control, which is what happened to me.  

Sir William Osler, possibly the most notable figure in American Medicine, spoke about the idea of living in “day-tight compartments.”  He advised to avoid reflecting too greatly on the past and to keep your mind from wandering to the future.  Always keep your focus on the task at hand.  His words echoed in my mind as I attempted to put that night out my thoughts.  We all have bad days, and we must move forward without allowing those days to weigh heavy on our thoughts. 

A fellow that I knew as a medical student ran into me the other day and asked how I was doing as an intern.  I explained that some days were tough and that I sometimes doubted if I was cut out for this.  “The long white coat is a lot heavier than it looks,” he responded.  In so many ways that is true.  But by living in my day-tight compartments I am not going to make it heavier than it needs to be. 

After All (Jackson/Stiles)

sterekseason said:Stackson for the tiny fic meme 

And after all that we’ve been through
It all comes down to me and you
I guess it’s meant to be
Forever you and me
After all

After All by Peter Cetera & Cher

Teeny Fic #1 inspired by the above lyrics from my playlist

After All. Jackson/Stiles. Any Age. Also on AO3.

Stiles isn’t expecting to find Jackson standing on his front porch at nearly midnight.

The sound of the doorbell draws Stiles’ attention away from the case file he’s been studying for hours. A quick glance at the clock tells him it’s after eleven, which is too late for unexpected visitors. Did he order pizza? He sometimes unconsciously sends in an order on his phone while he’s hyperfocused on a case, especially when he hasn’t eaten in a while, so maybe that’s who it is. Just in case, he grabs his wallet as he walks to the door.

Things I learned from Adulthood so far:
  • Know when to shut the fuck up cause not everything is worth talking about, especially personal details that some people don’t need to know
  • You pick your battles, some things just aren’t worth fighting over.  Sometimes you gotta let people get away with some stupid shit cause it’ll cause more harm to fight over it.

  • You are not your friend’s mother, you are not obligated to be there for them every single time they have a problem, you also do not owe your friends anything (as in don’t let them guilt you into giving them free shit when you don’t want to).

  • Pride will kill you, learn to swallow it.

  • Don’t cover a stab wound with a band-aid and figure it’ll close up overnight.  It won’t, the doctor can’t suture it after like 6 hours of being stabbed so they gotta superglue it shut and that’s even less fun, and you’ll need new sheets.

  • Regardless of where you stand with your parents, they can offer you some of the most sound advice in the world.  They’ve already done this adulthood thing, they made their mistakes and lived with it, and they know you pretty well.  There’s no one who could give better personal advice than a parent (or a really good friend who has their shit together if you aren’t on speaking terms with your parents).

  • It is possible to eat the same thing every day for 3 months but it is highly not recommended unless you want to gag every time you smell that food.

  • You will encounter many, many, MANY people who you hate/they hate you. The best possible course of action is to speak with them about it straight up before y’all stew in it for too long.  If that’s not possible, try not to act on it and ignore them, if you stay out of each other’s lives, you just forget about everything and no one gets hurt.

  • Really though, don’t get involved in petty shit.  You’re an adult now, literally everything you encounter will be stressful, you don’t have the time or energy to deal with unnecessary shit.  So when you’re in trouble, ask for help.  When you’re angry, talk it out and deescalate the situation.  When you seriously fuck up, you gotta admit that to yourself and come up with a logical way to get your shit together.  Cause it ain’t a game anymore, it’s the real thing, and you can’t afford to be prideful and ignore your problems or things will get very bad, very fast.

Shiro felt like he was wearing a dent into the waiting room’s floor with his pacing, but he couldn’t help it. He needed to be in motion, needed to burn off the jittery energy crawling under his skin. The doctors had assured him Keith would be fine, but watching the ship he was piloting plummet out of the sky seemingly uncontrolled had had an effect Shiro still wasn’t over.

Spock and McCoy are infamous for their verbal sparing. They are constantly exchanging insults, quips, little bits of snark that would make any other crew member cry. Whenever they were in the same room they always seem to make a point to insult the other.

Whether it is the doctor calling Spock a “green-blooded hobgoblin” or shouting that Spock is “out of his goddamn Vulcan mind” or picking at an emotional display. Or Spock saying “Doctor, you are being illogical” or raising on eyebrow or even when he claims that amusement/anger is a human emotion, Doctor McCoy, Vulcan’s do not feel".

As the years start to go by the crew begins to notice things. They start to notice how Spock’s lip will quirk when Leonard dies something amusing, like when he chases Jim around the Enterprise with a hypo. They also notice that he is now called Leonard, he isn’t just Doctor anymore, sometimes Spock slips and calls him Bones. Leonard will purposefully stand beside Spock, their shoulders brushing. Or if Spock is sitting down Bones will walk over and put a hand on his shoulder, lightly brushing his thumb against Spock’s neck.

The crew will notice these things and then do their best to ignore them. They brush off the touches as something for the two to argue about later. Or as a way to apologize for a particularly hurtful quip from earlier. They don’t seem to notice how much closer the two have become during the 5 year mission.

Jim is the first one to get suspicious, and he shares it with Nyota who tells Scotty who tell anyone who listens. The crew starts to pay attention, they start to realize that the insults are said with affection that wasn’t there in the beginning. They put meaning into the touches, into the words.

When Jim figures it out he jumps up in the middle of Alpha shift shouting “You two are having sex, aren’t you?!?”. Spock would calmly turn around in his chair, lacing his fingers, “I suppose Leonard was correct in assuming that it would take you a substantial amount of time to figure it out”. Jim would just stand there, in the middle of the bridge, with his mouth open just staring at Spock. Unable to comprehend how me missed it, how he missed his two best friends falling in love.

I’m seeing a lot of reviews for Doctor Strange calling it “generic” or “formulaic” with visuals that somehow make up for the lackluster story.

I’m sorry, but when did “boring story, pretty pictures” become, all of a sudden, a thing to praise a movie for? I get that movies are a visual storytelling medium, but damn son, there has to be a story to tell, not just some pretty CGI. Which, if you recall, was also a problem people had with movies not even a month ago. “Why are movies using so much CGI?” people asked, as if comic book based movies could just hire actors that already know how to fly, or just grow their very own alien ruler sitting/standing by their throne.

So all I’m seeing is a movie being praised for all the sins that other movies commit. And I’m sitting here wondering why Doctor Strange gets a pass for being a basic film with a generic storyline when movies that actually try get slammed for breaking the mold. It’s fascinating to say the least.

Imagine sassing Doctor Strange over his failed attempt to reconnect with Doctor Palmer.

Imagine sassing Doctor Strange over his failed attempt to reconnect with Doctor Palmer.
A/N: This is technically part two of my first Doctor Strange one-shot, but it can also work as a stand alone. I have a few more ideas for this character, so hopefully people are interested in her.

One of the few things that brought you great joy during your residency, was watching your attending Doctor Strange fail at getting back together with fellow attending Doctor Palmer. To see the normally cocky man get turned down so easily, truly did brighten your day. “Doctor Montgomery-Shepherd.” Strange called, catching your stare.
  You bit back your smile trying hold in your laughter. “Yes, Doctor Strange?”
      “Mind telling me what’s so funny?” Strange inquired, annoyed.
   Most residents would’ve quickly shrank back, replying nothing before scurrying off somewhere safe. However, you weren’t scared of Strange. Sure he could be overzealous, conceited and rather in considerate, but you’ve met worse surgeons with twice the arrogance of him. Besides, despite your student-teacher relationship the two of you were actually friends. So you felt no qualms replying, “Just watching your failed attempt at getting back together with Doctor Palmer.”
Or your jab of, “You know showing a little humility might be attractive, especially if you’re going to woo an equally great surgeon.”
 Doctor Strange cocked an eyebrow, looking slightly amused. “You’re one to criticize. Last time I checked you were still dating that poster of Captain America in your locker.”
   You shrugged, smiling. “ What can I say? He has my heart. Besides I date, just not with co-workers.”
  He scoffed, amusement vanishing from his face. Looks like you struck an unintentional cord. “You and Christine have too much in common. Let me guess the reasoning behind your refusal to date co-workers is named after me.”
 “ Me. Me. That’s all you ever think about. The world doesn’t revolve around you, Stephen. I don’t date co-workers, because I’ve seen how messy it gets, first hand. Mom and dad were co-workers. Mom cheated on dad with his best friend and co-worker. Dad later cheated on mom with his new co-worker whose family followed the same trend. So you can see my reluctance to follow the same path as them?”
“Family issues. Classic.” Strange nodded, glancing at you. “I take it, that means you won’t go to the ceremony with me?“
 “And deal with your ego outside of work? Nope.”  You snorted, walking away. “Have a great night Strange, try not to let your ego grow too much.”

So I was listening to the Jekyll and Hyde musical and I realized that a Perc'ahlia Jekyll and Hyde AU would be amazing but also heartbreaking. Like Percy as Doctor Jekyll and Orthax as Hyde, the dark part deep inside him where the inspiration for the gun came from. And Vex as either Lucy or Emma. I can’t decide who she fits better. Either way it’d be tragic as she’d either end up murdered by Percy while he’s possessed by Orthax or have to stand by and watch as Percy kills himself on their wedding day to protect her from Orthax..


Imagine the Doctor finding out you’ve stolen his TARDIS. At first his blood is boiling. But when he storms in to see Rose standing next to you… You’d somehow managed to get her back. For him. And while you were scared of being forgotten, (I mean, who wouldn’t be?) your Doctor had never been more happy. And she was there to stay.

The Cupid’s Arrow (Revised Edition): Chapter 1

“Honestly, Rose! The things I do for you! Your Nan’s birthday!” the Doctor whinged.

“Well, you could just drop me off, and come back for me later…,” Rose nervously fingered her cheek, “but I wouldn’t mind the company. ‘S not exactly gonna be a wild party.” She rolled her eyes. “And it would be better with two.” She coyly bumped her shoulder against his leather-clad arm, and flashed him her Rose Tyler-patented tongue-touched smile.  

“I suppose…” he began, and Rose’s grin widened significantly. She had him: hook, line, and sinker. “But I’m not going to sit there and listen to some old biddies prattling on about their knitting patterns or what happened on EastEnders yesterday.”

Valentine’s Day Drabbles!

Send me some pairings and prompts and I’ll try to post a bunch throughout the day. I can’t guarantee that I’ll get to all of them or that I’ll even know/follow all the pairings––the muse speaks when and where it will. I also want to warn you that I don’t really do stand-alone smut so while things might get suggestive at times, teasing is probably all you’ll get. 

I’ll use the tag #Valentine Drabbles and you can check through the tags on this post for some fandom ideas though I’m not limiting myself to just these (we’ll see how this whole thing goes).


Rating: General

Summary: The Doctor and Rose continue to enjoy their kisses. A continuation of sorts from my last piece ‘Addictive’.

Relationship: Nine x Rose

Notes: This is in response to the @timepetalsprompts weekly drabble prompt ‘silk, sweet and secret’, in 2x 100 word drabbles.

It’s a bit different from my usual stuff so I’m a little nervous submitting this one. Hopefully you won’t hate it!

I’d like to dedicate this to @goingtothetardis, who’s been quite sick. I hope this helps a teeny tiny bit.

Also on A03.

“Smooth,” the Doctor whispered darkly as his lips trailed lingeringly over the column of her throat. “So smooth, Rose. It’s like silk.”

She whimpered and clutched at the lapels of his leather jacket, barely able to stand. Though he was touching her with only his lips, he melted her bones in a way no one ever had.  

“Sweet,” he murmured into her skin, as though whispering a secret. “Sweeter than chocolate. Sweeter than honey…”

She shuddered. He was burning her with his words, his dark voice, his scent… his taste.

He undid her, this man. Totally and completely.

She was lost.


The Doctor inhaled deeply as he sipped and licked his way over Rose’s skin. Unable to help himself, he moaned, fisting his hands tightly in the fabric of her jacket as he breathed her in.

Her scent was magnificent and uniquely Rose. And oh, Rassilon, her taste. She was tart and sweet and addictive and he’d never stop tasting her. Never.

He trembled with wanting her. 

Nine hundred years of time and space, and she was the only person who could bring him to his knees.
