Taming Lord Gallifrey - Part One: Prologue - By LicieOIC
Rating: There will be two NSFW chapters, but most of this is Teen
Summary: John Smith is Lord Gallifrey, a man injured in battle, reduced to walking with a cane and limp. He has spent the past nine years closed off from society. When he meets Miss Rose Tyler, a young beauty who shares his love of books and art, he feels she may be the one person to bring light back into his life. He appeals to his cousin Donna, Duchess of McAvoy, to assist him in winning her over. But his terse and abrupt manner leave much to desired. Donna must transform this “beast” into a prince worthy of Rose’s attention.
Notes: This is an adaptation of a book I read recently by Karen Hawkins, mixed with some Jane Austen and Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, as well as the characters from Doctor Who. Also, a splash of Once Upon A Time, as I gave Mr. Gold’s leg injury to John. I am borrowing from all of these mediums to bring you what I hope is an entertaining story, but the respective elements all belong to their original owners. I just write for fun. But since so much of this is borrowed, I have taken it down from AO3. It will only be available to read here on Tumblr. Apologies for any inconvenience this presents.
