A Guide to the world of catsfiction

Welcome to my fiction journal. Have fun, and leave a note if you feel so inclined. Most entries are public, but if you visit regularly please friend me so we can keep in touch.

Here's what I've written thus far:


In each case, I link to Chapter One - follow the tag for the others

Boxing Day
The emotional fallout from The Christmas Invasion. Featuring Sarah Jane!

Second Chances
Non-canonical sequel to Boxing Day. What if Jack had turned up in Ten and Rose's lives before Doomsday happened?

The Guardians of Time

Very AU sequel to Boxing Day and Second Chances. Canary Wharf has come and gone, and Ten and Rose are still together. Then they have a baby, and Rose needs her mum. The Doctor's people are out there looking for him, and he's never wanted to be found. Until now....

Some Are More Equal
Gallifrey has survived the Time War, and now Rose and Ten are returning with their five-year-old daughter. But all is not as it seems, and they are soon drawn into a web of intrigue when they meet a disinherited Time Lady and her son.

The Way We Were

DW/Life on Mars crossover. The Runaway Bride in the TARDIS is Rose - but she doesn't recognise the Doctor. A tale of amnesia, wonky time portals, secrets, lies and a cop out of his time called Sam Tyler. With Jack and extra Torchwood goodness.

The Doctor's Diary

Ten and Rose get back in touch after Doomsday - is there any hope of a reunion? Yes, from an unexpected source. This series started as a post-Runaway Bride drabble on Christmas night, and expanded to 20 parts!

A Tale of Two Doctors

In the aftermath of "Time Crash", the Fifth Doctor finds himself in Pete's World with Rose. And the Tenth Doctor is in emotional meltdown, but the TARDIS has her own solution.

There are two short companion pieces to this fic - The Fall of  A Sparrow and Out of Joint


As It Should Be

After Doomsday, the Doctor asks Jack to help him pull Rose from the Void. But he hadn't anticipated the emotional fallout.

A New Man
AU from The Christmas Invasion - what if the Doctor had returned to Satellite Five and rescued Jack? A seasonal confection loosely based on Dickens' A Christmas Carol.


Starting straight after VOTD, this is more an OT3 look at the Ten/Rose/Jack relationship. All three feature the Torchwood team and spoilers up to the end of TW S2.

Safe Harbour
The Doctor seeks out Jack and asks him to help him get Rose back. But his feelings for Jack, and Jack's for both of them, need to be factored in, and the Doctor doesn't do feelings terribly well.

Life in Cardiff

Rose is home, but settling down to life with Jack and Ten turns out to be more problematic than any of them expected. Working together doesn't always help...

Undiscovered Country

Estranged from Jack after he refuses to leave the Team, the Doctor and Rose return to Cardiff to find a crisis unfolding. Owen is dead but Jack intends to reverse that, whatever the cost. And somehow, the Doctor has to stop him.


Emotional Baggage

A series of missing scenes, between the episodes of S4, charting the development of the Doctor/Donna friendship.

After The Storm
In which Donna's memory-wipe is shortlived, and the Doctor has to learn to love the Noble family.


I made several attempts to fix JE, with widely varying results. Sometimes 10 gets the girl, sometimes it's 10.5. Anyway, here they are:

Ten Years After

The most canon-compliant and by far the best received. There's probably a lesson there.

Out of Tune

It turns out that 10.5 can't survive physically without Donna, so with help from Jack, the original Doctor returns to the AU to sort matters out. Inspired by the DW Prom concert.

The Best of Times

The Doctor finds a way to preserve Donna's memories, but she's not prepared to let Rose slip away from him.

The Best Laid Plans
Further romantic complications ensue as the two Doctors, Donna and Rose play turn and turn about.


Home is an Old Brown Coat

Shopping for clothes rarely improves a strained relationship, but then an unexpected stroke of luck brings a breakthrough.

This Little Hand
One bit of him is still the original Doctor, and when Rose doesn't want to cheat on her first love, he knows exactly where to put it (Smutty!)


I've divided this into several tagged sections:

She Had This Family

A short pre-Doomsday sketch from Jackie Tyler's POV


Ten and Rose visit a Lancashire town, encounter some Morris dancers and reflect on making the best of the place where you end up.

Ten/Rose Happy
Mostly fluff. There is a Producers crossover in there somewhere.

Ten/Rose Angsty
If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.

You have been warned.

I'm solidly Ten/Rose shippy but I find Martha an interesting character, too. If that works for you, check out my
Martha fics.


Another Way (Ten/Donna) up to JE

18 months since I posted fic - I can hardly remember how to do this!

A fixit, of sorts....

She’s sorry but she’s going to have to stop him. After all, isn’t that what she always does?

Peace, I will stop thy mouth.

SPOILERS: It's in the altverse, post JE. No Specials spoilers


RATING: Adult-ish. WARNINGS - one or two profanities, and smut.

The idea for this story came from fid_gin  and her gorgeous picspam of 10.5. She wondered whether he felt that the hand he got from the original Ten was different from the rest of him. With a mind like mine, there was one obvious place for that to go.

A bedroom scene is derailed by Rose's conflicting loyalties, until the human Doctor remembers that one bit of his body is still a Time Lord's, and has a brilliant idea.

“This little hand, you see, it doesn’t know when to stop. It’s having so much fun, it wants to do…ooh…this. And this. And…”

Here he was, warm and breathing and wonderfully, physically human next to her. This was their moment, and she wasn’t having any interruptions, thanks all the same.
“I’m really here,” she told him, covering his face with kisses. “It’s me. It’s all right, Doctor. You’re safe. You’re home.”

All Rose and Ten want now is a little bit of private time...

He’d always maintained that talking to yourself was a sign of sanity. Now he was the living embodiment of it – there seemed to be another version of him, subtly different, more upbeat, more impulsive, less damaged and despairing – arguing with him inside his own head.

He's still alive...but he's got company.

I have a slightly spoilery story ready to share but I've been completely unable, despite numerous attempts, to put it under a cut, so for now I'll just have to keep it to myself.

It's very frustrating. Is anybody else having the same problem? I could link it from various communities but I don't want to spoil all the people on my friends list.

This and That

Tom has an offer from his first choice of university - Sheffield - to read Philosophy (AAB). That is achievable if he works hard and he's delighted and very motivated. It's almost a shock, because he's quite a late developer, to see him actively preparing himself to leave home in ten months' time. We went down to Essex, his second choice, on Wednesday to have a look around. The course is very good but it's a long haul - we were up at five to get the train and weren't back until after ten in the evening. But they've given him two B's and I think he'd be fine if he ended up there - he can imagine himself there quite easily.

It's been a really demanding week. Becky's been on a killer GCSE Mocks schedule and suffering from a heavy cold - late nights and two or three exams a day. She needs excellent grades if she's going to move on to Withington Girls' School, which is very academic, and that's what she wants to do. I'd love to see her reach that goal, because they rejected her application five years ago and all her friends went there - however, the Sixth Form at the school where she goes now is also excellent, and she has a firm offer from them.

Meanwhile I'm struggling with Shakespeare and Women. I've found this unit really hard work, unlike the previous two. It's very performance based and I've had to learn a whole new vocabulary, since I'm used to engaging with texts critically. Suddenly it's all Laban and Stanislavski, with huge amounts of reading to do. I haven't quite gelled with the course convener either - she's lovely as a person but her background is entirely dramaturgy, so much so that I think she finds it almost impossible to imagine what it's like to lack that professional vocabulary. She keeps telling us what she wants but it's a dialogue of the deaf. I wish I had David Tennant on call to ask for a few tips, but that would be distracting...

Next term I'll be doing Legacy, which is looking at the way people have adapted Shakespeare texts, right through to things like Forbidden Planet and Kiss Me Kate. That's far more my kind of thing. But first I have another essay hanging over me, and I got poor marks for my last so the pressure's really on.

I go back and forth a lot over all the DW stuff. For the first time I'm feeling that the hype's been overdone here in the UK. Recent clips from EoT suggest that there'll be at least some fun in it, but then you could have said that about Army of Ghosts and then look at Doomsday...I'm out of sympathy with RTD's vision for the show and I can feel myself holding back from emotional investment, because I'll get hurt again. I also feel that too much doom is not appropriate for an Xmas special of a family show - I'm not thinking Disney but I would like a fundamental optimism ot be present, rather than just more opportunities for Tennant to emote. Anyway, we'll see.
