REALLY QUICK DISCLAIMER BEFORE WE GET STARTED: the urls of the characters are probably taken/being used irl, but they’re just so perfect for these nerds, so we’re using them for this fic anyway.
It had been a long day, and Sarah was ready to just wind down for a few hours. There would be plenty of time to worry about that rapidly growing pile of late math homework. But she had more important things on her mind, like how since last night, she had gained three followers on Tumblr. Two science blogs and a depression(?) blog: sexydarwin, sciencelaborador, and lost-train-of-thought.
Beth’s feet pounded the pavement in perfectly rhythmic timing. Left right left right left right left right. Even bend of her knee, every flex of her thigh, every breath in her lungs – she felt it all. The brisk wind on her face, the sweat on her brow, the pounding of her fresh and alive and thriving heart. Every instant and moment and sensation and touch and taste and emotion, Beth felt everything. Beth felt everything and Beth felt alive and Beth felt ok.
Summary: AU where the clones each have a super power based on their personalities so Beth can read minds because she’s super intuitive and Alison turns invisible because she wants to blend it with her surroundings but instead of super amazing things they do super cute things
Alison Hendrix sits on a couch at the edge of the room, hands folded neatly in her lap and legs crossed. People mill quietly around her, going on with their business as she waits, her purse clutched in her hands and bangs perched nicely on her forehead. She doesn’t quite mean to make eye contact with the woman standing at the counter. The woman smiles warmly before turning back to the bank teller, her trenchcoat bunching up when she reaches into her pocket. Alison sees a glimpse of something that gives her pause, a holster with something that looks suspiciously like a gun inside.
Alison doesn’t dwell on it, not when she sees the badge a moment later. She’s never worried about authority figures.
Alison stands, goes over to a counter to start writing a deposit check when -
“Oi! Everybody stop what you’re doing and get down on the fuckin’ floor!”
Beth knew awkward silences all too well. She knew them from bad break-ups, from bad days, from bad feelings. She’d had her fair share of awkward silences with friends, teachers, boyfriends and most often herself. She knew all too well the awkward and painful silence of being alone with oneself and she knew that was often the most painful silence of all. There in that hallway though, Beth found a new most painful silence. Alison’s hands had not moved off her face, and her gaze was downcast, her chest heaving with shallow, shaky breaths.
“Oh god,” Beth heard Alison whisper softly, her voice cutting through the silence.

Summar: Cop vs Pushy Reporter AU (based off of this post). Detective Beth Childs is the lead on a new string of homicides, but can she complete her investigation without the meddling of lead reporter Alison Hendrix?
[for maria tinytmas, who is working so hard on her exams and deserves some soccercop in her life]
Art throws the morning newspaper on her desk the next day, the words LEAD DETECTIVE KEEPING LEAD SECRETS? staring her in the face.
“I told you I should have handled it.”
She throws the newspaper in the trash and rubs at her temples, “Shut up, dipshit. Just - shut up.”
It’s just one overbearing reporter; Beth can handle that.
(Sometimes it’s easier to repeat a mantra over and over until it basically becomes the truth.
Beth repeats this every time they get a new high-profile case.)
soccer cop doctor who au where beth is the doctor and bumps into alison in the grocery store while running from aliens and grabs her hand and whisks her away into the tardis all the while alison is all “UNHAND ME WHERE ARE WE GO- oh” as she steps into the tardis and beth is like “hi yeah this is called the tardis it’s a time machine shut the door we have to go" and they proceed to have space adventures and fall in love
