Fic Writer Wednesday (7/19)

In which I read Too Much Fic™.

(Since it’s Series Spotlight Wednesday this week, I want to first draw attention to the series Eleven and His Rose by BittyBlueEyes. It starts with a reunion between Eleven and Rose, but is canon compliant with River. It then goes on to weave a fantastic episodic tale of adventure and romance across time and space! (Though since it’s canon compliant, River isn’t in the picture for very long). The NuWho Doctors get cameos and there’s lots and lots of Bad Wolf!Rose :D A gift to the Eleven/Rose ship, you should definitely check it out!)


Nine/Rose

Text Messaging Isn’t that Complicated Rose: A wrong number from a changing room might lead to something Rose thinks will never happen.

Ten/Rose

A Place For Us to Dream (Chapter 57) by @dimensionhoppingrose: the conclusion of Midnight. Poor Rose! The entity in this is truly terrifying!

The Hazards of Relaxation by @thebaddestwolf: tropes galore, but woven into a glorious whole. This fic made me laugh, had me on the edge of my seat, and touched me emotionally. A new favourite for sure.

An Ode to Hope by @kelkat9: The Doctor falls during Doomsday. Rose is left with a TARDIS she doesn’t know how to drive and an unexpected plus one. Angst abounds! Such a fantastic premise, I can’t wait to see what’s in store!

Call of the Void (Chapter 3) by @fadewithfury: the plot thickens! After the mishap of the last chapter both the Doctor and Rose are determined never to leave each other again. It’s more difficult than they could have imagined, of course, and they both have different ideas of what that means. On top of that, the TARDIS is dying. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!!

Pull of the Light by @goingtothetardis: Doomsday fixit/reunion + healthy helpings of Bad Wolf!Rose and telepathic bonding. Need I say more? This is so beautiful.

Of Impossible Things (Chapter 2) by @goingtothetardis: the Doctor recounts his tragic tale to Donna before being interrupted by a most unexpected apparition in the Gallifrey room. Can’t wait for the actual reunion! Their pain has been pulling at me for so long in this series!

For Warmth of Heart: the Doctor faints in a snowstorm and therefore knows he must be dreaming when he wakes and Rose is back. Or is he?

Jackie’s Wish by @chocolatequeennk: Jackie learns too late what her wish for Rose could mean. I love fics that are sympathetic towards Jackie’s POV.

To Bring Them Home (Chapter 2) by @chocolatequeennk: And here we go with Bad Wolf Bay. In which a pregnant Rose thinks she’s about to be taken home. Just in case you still had a bit of your heart left after the first chapter. Nancy is nothing if not thorough.

Forever and Never Apart (Chapter 11) by @chocolatequeennk: First part of the Sontaran Stratagem. The changes keep snowballing and as a result the characters and their interactions make way more sense. Bless this story. Seriously.

Every Doctor/Rose

Silhouette: Reunion fic, plus Three. A unique take that’s great to read! Ending is Ten/Rose.

Take My Hand by @cryofthewolf: A S1 E1:Rose rewrite with Five. Yes, you read that right. Because we can’t have too many Rose rewrites with different Doctors. :D This is fantastic!

mouth full of white lies by @perfectlyrose: An Eight still in the throes of the Time War encounters a dimension-hopping Rose Tyler and is very confused. Absolutely gorgeous, of course, and the ending is Ten/Rose reunion!

<<Teninch Fic>>

Mercier/Betty

A lapse in fate (Chapter 19) by @lostinfic: IT’S OVER!!!! T.T such a beautiful reunion! This fic is exquisite, highly recommended!

One of the things I like about RTD is that he was pretty good at one-off monsters.

Obviously, the Midnight entity takes the cake for me. That episode is everything a scary one-off episode should be, and the monster completely depends on the actress’ spectacular performance.

But the Midnight entity would be completely ruined if it showed up in another episode. One of the best parts about it is that we know absolutely nothing about it.

The Adipose, too, were good for a one-off monster, but if you brought them back, they’d probably not be as good the second time around.

This is something Moffat needs to learn, how to leave a good one-off monster as a good one-off monster.

Blink was very well-received because of the Angels (I think it’s only decent at best, but that’s beside the point). Bringing them back, he completely changed what they were. Suddenly you couldn’t look at their eyes, or you’d die. You can’t take a picture of one (even though that exact thing happened in Blink and it had no downside), or it’ll come to life. Suddenly, they had to steal power from electric spaceships to fix themselves if they were ever damaged or something. We saw them move for the first time.

And there was also this:

Those two angels can definitely see each other out of the corners of their eyes, at least, and yet, they’re fine once Amy’s gone. Apparently they just need to think you can see them, too, while you don’t actually have to see them.

And they just got worse as time went on (culminating in the metal Statue of Liberty being a Weeping Angel (which are made out of stone) being able to trick people into not seeing it as it teleported across New York).

The Weeping Angels would’ve been much better if they were just a one-off monster. The Silents would’ve been better if they didn’t come back in Time of the Doctor. Moffat needs to learn to sometimes leave good monsters as one-off monsters, as opposed to recurring monsters.
