Here’s a cute little commission I did last month for a friend. Her English grandmother tells a series of stories about a crew of characters living in a compost heap. I love the names, too– Jackie Ant, Belinda Butterfly, Walter Wasp, Crunchy Mouse (my favorite), Earnest Earwig, and The Robin.

Jackie sat herself on the far side of the backseat and tugged Rose in beside her, leaving an open seat for the Doctor that was barely wide enough for even his narrow hips.

“Get in already,” Jackie yelled. “It’s freezing out! Bloody Norway!”

The Doctor quickly slid into the seat beside Rose, shivering when the heat from her thigh seeped into his. But she didn’t look uncomfortable, nor did she try to move away (if anything, she leaned closer to him, making him near giddy with delight), so he gradually relaxed his muscles and enjoyed the contact he’d so sorely missed over the years.
