SUMMARY: I blame my Silly!Muse. *nod**nod* [livejournal.com profile] dw100 Challenge #146: Riding


He hoped the TARDIS might have mistranslated. "Riding you say?"

His Companion nodded happily.

"On... horses?" Which was a tad redundant since they were standing outside a stable, but really now, there were countless more interesting ways to die. Perhaps she had meant elephants or cephalopods or something with a little less speed and a little more brains. Which made him wonder if somewhere (or somewhen) they might have gotten around to breeding riding sheep, because if you were looking for a right dearth of brains they'd give horses a run for their money. Racing sheep, now there's a thought...

SUMMARY: [livejournal.com profile] dw100 Challenge #144: Water


He could never find the words to explain, eventually he stopped trying. Humans had too rigid a grasp of time, confined to sailing across the oceans he swam in. Time was only linear as he lived it; a scattered handful of breaching leaps into existence as they knew it. The past, the future, none of it more substantial than the memories he took away. But they clung to the surface, even Jack, stubbornly demanding to see the horizon. Where are we going? Where have we been? If he could only make them see... it was all just waves and water.

"Did you know you can taste time?" The Doctor raised his glass, peering curiously at the merlot. He grinned when Rose raised an eyebrow. "Well, not taste, not exactly, more of a smell come to think of it."

"And that's a royal 'you' to boot." Jack tipped his half-empty glass in salute, "Some of us make do with only five senses you know." Rose laughed and leaned over to clink glasses in human comradery.

"You aren't missing much," the Doctor sniffed the wine experimentally. "Smells like Siberia, time does, full of ice and snow and barren nothingness."

"Good to know."

SUMMARY: [livejournal.com profile] dw100 Challenge #131: Stargazing


Outside the TARDIS lay a tumbling horizon of ice and rock, stars obscured by toxic mist spun from sunlit surfaces. The only sounds the pops and hissing moans as the ground beneath fell prey to warmth. If he'd a Companion, they'd have said something suitably human, but he was between Companions and had to fill the silence himself.

Instead he gazed out into the hazy sky. It was whimsy more than anything that brought him here, an impulsive desire to thwart the universe's expectations, however minor. So when all the world looked up at Halley's Comet, the Doctor looked down.

SUMMARY: Looks can be deceiving...


They came through the gate like conquerors, guns held in lazy confidence, smiles backed by controlled aggression. Not fearless, no, but unafraid. Walking into town as if they'd every right to trod the common grounds. The Mother's Mothers held quick council, granting the four traveler's rights two steps before they first breached marked ground.

The Sisters council was not amused.

Three hours later when the Mother's Mothers realized the four had nothing worth trading and the smallest one would never stop talking, they revoked the rights and set them back upon the common grounds.

The Sisters, wisely, muffled their laughter.

SUMMARY: There's a power in names...


She wasn't Wendy, but she never had been; that much she could remember. Whatever name she'd worn, whatever life she'd lived before these shadowed years, it had all been traded away for the threadbare immortality that clung to her skin like cobwebs.

She'd spent a day once trying on names, but none of them fit. Helen was too small and Clarabelle too wide. Miriam, Amy, Shea, they rolled from her tongue and slid off her skin like raindrops, puddling at her feet. She shrugged and left them there; still human enough to feel the loss, but not enough to care.

SUMMARY: Where are the ruby slippers when you need them?? Written for [livejournal.com profile] occhallenge OC Share Challenge #48


"So you're saying you aren't an alternate Jeanie," John stared at the new arrival in amused disbelief. "You're an alternate Rodney?"

"Wait, wait, I'm a girl?!" Rodney looked up from the piece of ancient tech apparently responsible for the new arrival, and stared at Rose in dawning horror.

"No, I'm a girl; you're apparently just an idiot," Rose crossed her arms and glared at her alternate self. "Have you been listing at all? It's not like I'm talking because I like the sound of my own voice." She paused, "Well, actually I do, but that's not the point."

"Well then go talk someplace else! Working here." Rodney waved a hand dismissively as he bent over the ancient doodad in panicked concentration.

The rest of the team (and eventually the rest of the lab) watched in amusement as the two Rodneys devolved into a shouting match over who was better qualified to fix said device. It wasn't until Elizabeth showed up and threatened to have Carson forcefully sedate them both that the two finally declared a truce.

At least until the coffee ran out.

AU: Where the Ocean Meets the Sky
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG
SUMMARY: Atlantis is missing only one thing...
NOTE: This is the first drabble where I hit 100 words on the first draft! o_O;


Atlantis was intelligent, but she wasn't creative. Two plus two was always four, never blue or apple or 'five for very large values of two', although she thought she understood the joke. It was the only limit to her power, beyond the ZPMs, and she had tried for centuries to find a way to code those jumps of illogic. But two plus two was four, no matter how hard she tried.

She wasn't creative, but she didn't need to be, that's what her Avatar was for. Rodney was the spark, she was the fuel, and they'd set the stars ablaze.

SUMMARY: [livejournal.com profile] sg_challenges Challenge #35 : Bones/Death


They weren't the only village that practiced sacrifice; in those lean years when the Wraith were few and far between, the tithe kept the village alive. Five people chosen randomly each month to live caged for the Wraith to feed upon or spare as they saw fit. A way to manage death, contain it within rules and ritual. A desperate bid to control the uncontrollable.

Rodney hadn't thought the Wraith capable of irony. Not until he saw the five rail-thin bodies pleading from the cage in voices rough with starvation, and the village behind them inhabited by nothing but bones.
