Pairing: Doctor/River; Human AU

Prompt #3: He looked at his phone, turned pale and quickly left the room.

For lizziecorday and misscorday (you’ll see why, but blimey! Corday and Corday)

He looked at his phone, turned pale and quickly left the room.

His colleagues watched, worried and confused as John paced the room, muttering to himself.

He knew his wife was unpredictable. And dangerous. It was something he had known ever since she attempted to kill him, and then saved him by risking her own life. That was- that was just how River was.

But this? This was a touch far. 

Too far! 

Doing something like that and texting him after? What was she thinking?

He looked at the message once again. The little ’xx’ with which she had signed off incensed him.

lizziecorday  asked:


Does the laundry?    At first they sort of do their own, then Elizabeth takes over because Mark — bless! — sent a few of her favorite things through the wash and ruined them. After Ella is born, Mark remembers to help as often as possible.

Is more spontaneous?    Before Ella it was Elizabeth (not that Mark wasn’t spontaneous), but post-baby it’s definitely Mark. (I’d like to think there’s an AU where Mark survives & they have a second baby that Elizabeth is much better with because I agree with Kingston - Elizabeth, as a new mother, was a bit… Yeah.)

Gets up in the middle of the night to deal with the baby crying?    Usually it’s Elizabeth, unless of course she’s at work. We’ve seen how Mark can be with reaction time and crying… Yikes. 

Is more possessive?    Elizabeth. Definitely Elizabeth. Every now & then, though, Mark will get really possessive out of nowhere and Elizabeth finds it positively irresistible.

Is most likely to fall asleep while watching a movie?    In the early days it’s Mark, but later when she’s feeling run down with the hospital and the baby (and everything else) it’s Elizabeth.

Is most likely to steal the other’s clothes?    Mark totally walks around the house in Elizabeth’s robe because it’s just fluffier and warmer. If he’s trying to get a laugh out of her he’ll also steal her slippers & wrap a towel on his head as if he’s just washed his hair. Elizabeth will occasionally steal a sweatshirt, scarf, etc., of Mark’s if it’s cold out or a t-shirt during the summer. Fortunately, color-coding keeps their scrubs separated.

Cave to the other giving them pleading eyes?   There are the Mark Greene puppy dog eyes — which almost always work — and then there’s the Elizabeth Corday glare that… Every now & then is replaced by pleading green eyes. But yeah, Elizabeth can’t resist Mark’s puppy dog face. Ice cream for dinner. Sneaking off for a little personal time at the hospital. A movie he wants to see but she doesn’t. Extra butter on the popcorn.

MACBETHS for 5, 7, 27 and 38

Macbeths with 5 filled here :)

Combining the other three was definitely an interesting challenge :P Hopefully it worked out okay!
7. “I’m pregnant.”
27. “I almost lost you.”
38. “You fainted…straight into my arms. You know, if you wanted my attention you didn’t have to go to such extremes.”
Rating: PG

“I did not swoon!”

“You did,” Macbeth insists, “and you’re lucky I caught you. But… you do know if you wanted to get my attention there are easier ways, don’t you?”

Gruoch huffs. “That isn’t what –”

“Are you bleeding? Is that why you fainted?” His smile drops as he checks her over worriedly. “Where –?”

“Macbeth!” She smacks his hands away, scowling. “You really think I’m going to faint at the sight of blood?”

He reddens. “Well… no…”

*whispers* 2? Doctor/River but your Human AU?? Is that too demanding?? I'm sorry okay bye.

Let’s see how I can fit this into that. :P  

#2:There were many theories about how she was murdered.

1 AM AND I HAVE A NUGGET IN MY HEAD THAT I JUST HAVE TO WRITE aka how I make a spooky/angsty line a fluffy baby fic

“There were many theories about how she was murdered-”

River nodded, snuggling into the covers. 1 am. She counted fingers. Only 4 hours of sleep. 5.30 would be too late to go to bed without disturbing their schedules.

“-of course no one knew exactly how it happened-”

She scrunched her eyes shut. Sometimes it was difficult to discern who was better behaved- her 7 month old daughter, or said daughter’s father. “Sweetie, can we talk about this in the morning?”

“Hm? Oh.” He nodded, his eyes still fixed at the text in his lap, “Yes. Of course.” His focus still on his book, John leaned and pressed a kiss at the corner of her lips, “Good night, River.”

Too tired to roll her eyes at him, she snaked a sluggish hand out to switch off the lights, “Good night, nigh-“

“No, but seriously, River. How do you think she died? Who could have murdered her?”

She turned to him with a sickly sweet smile, stroking a hand over his bare chest. Grinning, he leaned closer, prepared to kiss her, “Riv-“

WOW I BET YOU ARE SHOCKED!!!  ;)   Actually, I usually have a few random things on my desktop, but I only seem to have one today. This has seriously been my background since the NYC photos came out nearly 3 months ago.

I was tagged by queenriver, & I’m passing the torch to themysticalsong, riverlovesbowties, spoilmesweetie, lizziecorday, and… 2raggedclaws.

Apparently the only rule is that you cannot change your desktop once you’ve been tagged.

Modern Au Macbeths or Human Au River/John


Modern AU Macbeths

  • who the fuck put the peeps in the microwave: Macbeth. Sometimes it’s because he wanted to see what happens, and sometimes its purely accidental. ‘Accidents’ dramatically increase after Findley’s birth, though.
  • who forgot to put the cat outside before sex: They don’t have a cat until Findley is 3 year old and brings home a kitten with him. They have a dog, however, who Gruoch often forgets is under the bed.
  • who posts vines of the other doing embarrassing shit: Neither.
  • who breaks the most phones. Err…Gruoch. She has a tendency to forget where her phone last was, and ends up breaking (she seldom loses them, mind you) them.
  • who dies first: Gruoch. Of old age. Macbeth follows soon. 
  • which one I could see as being lactose intolerant: Macbeth. Although it’s more of an excuse to avoid having anything to do with milk.
  • who thinks they can do something really well even though they can’t: Both.
  • who is more likely to get kicked out of the bed: Macbeth. 
  • who uses the computer most: Gruoch. Primarily because Macbeth is technologically inept, and Mrs. handles most of the business aspect of their work.

Human AU John/River

  • who the fuck put the peeps in the microwave: Both. Mostly its John, but sometimes River does it too – to see why he does it; and sometimes because its fun.
  • who forgot to put the cat outside before sex: They don’t have pets until Essie is about 3. Mostly its John who forgets that their daughter’s little pup has ventured into their room.
  • who posts vines of the other doing embarrassing shit: Neither. Both have videos of each other, though. (He wants to, but River will kill him if she finds out)
  • who breaks the most phones: John. He is the reason why the myth about forgetful scientists/professors exists.
  • who dies first: River. She dies following an explosion at the excavation site. Doctors try their best, but she dies soon after John arrives at the hospital.
  • which one I could see as being lactose intolerant: Neither.
  • who thinks they can do something really well even though they can’t: Both, actually. John likes to think he is a great planner and has great taste in almost every thing, and River likes to think she is good at making custards.
  • who is more likely to get kicked out of the bed: It’s rare, but John. After a few months as his roommate/flatmate, River is now used to his antics. She usually just rolls her eyes, turns over and goes to sleep. But sometimes its gets too much. And then its John and living room couch.
  • who uses the computer most: John. Work related necessity.
