Needing Inspiration?

I have all these fic ideas, you see, and absolutely no time in which to write them. I wish I did- God knows how I wish!- but alas. I am a very busy college senior struggling with far too much irresponsibility already without adding fic to the list of "things I should be working on but am not". So until I am free to write again, I am giving these ideas to you, internet, to do with as you will.

All I ask is that you tell me when you fill something so I can link to your fabulous story! Thanks for stopping by :)

Song inspiration:

Tenth Doctor, Master: (The End of Time) In the End:

[some lyrics]

Things aren’t the way they were before
You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside
and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually
be a memory of a time when

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

Pairing of your choice...(possibly Nine/Rose?): Birds of a Feather:

[some lyrics]all the king's horses
and all of his men
couldn't tear us apart...

Ninth Doctor: (post-Time War) Easier to Run:

[some lyrics]
Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn't have
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
And never moving forward so there'd never be a past

9,10, or 10.5/Rose: Demons:
[some lyrics]They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go
Your eyes, they shine so bright
I want to save their light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

TenII/Rose: Faint:
[some lyrics]I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints, but I cant help the fact that everyone can see these scars

I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel
But it's like no matter what I do I can't convince you
to just believe
this is real

Ten/Rose: (post-Doomsday): Stars:

[some lyrics]

And it's crazy here without you
I used to think this all was ours
We stay up late, debate
On how we find our way
You say, "It's all up in the stars" ...

And I've been saying that you
You're always holding onto stars
I think they're better from afar
Cause no one is going to save us

Oh, and me
Well I am fading in the dark
So don't you ever kiss me
Don't you wish on me
Why can't you see
That no one's going to save us?

Eleven/Rose: Rocks:

[some lyrics]

Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
I threw some rocks up at your window
I broke some rocks right through your window
Timber, timber
We're falling down
Let the forest hear our sound...
Why can't I see
What's right in front of me?
We fall
We fall apart...

Story ideas:

Nine/Rose: (Father's Day AU) Rose grows up in the upper middle class, hearing stories from her father about the day a blonde stranger saved his life. When she meets the Doctor and agrees to travel with him (because she feels too sheltered and, well, bored at home), she realizes that its her job to save her dad...

Rory/Martha: I need this ship like I need air to breathe. (Apparently I'm the only one who thinks they would just work together) Any plot, any universe, any time period, idek. Free reign here.

TenII/Rose: the first time Meta!Ten gets drunk in Pete's world. Bonus points for including

[something like this exchange]She tilted dangerously to the side, trying to compensate for the fact that he'd apparently lost control of his left foot.
"'Superior biology' my fine arse..." She muttered.

He tried to grab at her arm to get her attention, but instead came extremely close to feeling her up.
"Rose," he started, once she'd glared at him for his efforts, "The world is kinda pulse-y right now, so I can't be sure...but did you just insult me and compliment your- admitttedly- lovely bum in the same sentence? Because that is rude." Here he paused, and affected what might have been the completely pissed version of the Oncoming Look. Then he squinted and ammended, "Well, not the bum bit, because that was completely accurate, but the hating-on-the-Doctor's-awesome-and-yes-superior-anatomy bit. Not cool, Rose." He narrowed his eyes dramatically and then poked her on the nose with each word for emphasis. "Not. Cool."

He then proceeded to completely fall over.

Doctor/Rose: Only three out of five toenails on her left foot are painted- evidence that he'd interrupted her for some much needed...physical activity...the night before.

TenII/Rose: Somehow, Jenny shows up in Pete's World. The Doctor has to explain himself.

Nine or Ten/Companion(s): Misadventures with the Silence (I've a strong feeling this could get real cracky, real quick)

Quote inspiration:

"Forever is an awfully long time--until you realize it's no time at all. Hold on to what you have, and live life day by day, because in time,
the world will take it all away." -Lena

"The most successful people are those who are good at plan B." -James Yorke

"No man is happy without a delusion of some kind. Delusions are as necessary to our happiness as realities." -Christian Nestell Bovee

"Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end." -Author Unknown

"The entire universe is only a mental construct. The Self alone is free and eternal." -Shri Avadhuta Stotram

"Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire." – Jorge Luis Borges

"There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot." -John Cage

"It's amazing...In a world
filled with so many people, living so many lives, that your one life can mean so much to mine." -Jodi Hills

"I really like who I am with you...I hope that doesn't sound bad to say. I mean it more as a compliment to you, more of a "thank you" really. You free me to be this person who laughs and cries and feels and enjoys and loves. What a relief to be myself, without performing, or worrying, just being and becoming who I am. That's some gift, (and) I hope I'm returning it... because you know what? I really like who you are with me." -Jodi Hills

Nine and Ten:
"It's a myth that time heals. Time heals nothing. It's what we do with the time- the choices we make in the time, the people we surround ourselves with, the life we create and share. The love in our hearts and the hope in our minds... can heal, create, inspire, and change almost anything... you just have to take the time to realize it." -Jodi Hills

Ten: "I don't have to conform to the vagaries of time and space, I'm a loony for God's sake!" -Campbell from Takin' Over the Asylum
(I feel like this implies crack. Very much so)

it's happy-rant time weeeee

So my immediate family are all finally Whovians, after me and my brother spent a while watching it and devoted our entire beings to converting the rest of them. My mother was the last holdout and I’m proud to say that I finally got her to watch (and love) it… She just caught up about two months ago.

This week, we upgraded our cable to get BBC America, and we’re having a Whovian-family anniversary special watch party. I’m getting extremely excited.

I will be forever grateful to the cast and crew of the show that gave me an outlet to finally connect with people, not just here but around the world! This fanbase is the greatest and I can barely remember what life BDW (before Doctor Who) was like. I’ve made so many great friends because of it.

Doctor Who united my family in a way it hasn’t been since my brother died ten years ago. It has given us a common love, something to look forward to, something to have deep discussions and debates about, and something to share with anyone who’ll listen. It’s truly been a fantastic journey.

Thank you to everyone on tumblr and LiveJournal who have shared in this with me. You guys are awesome :)

Sorry I'm being dramatic I'm just having a lot of feelings right now...

Just a few more hours!

any excuse for a break

So I'm pulling an all-nighter trying to get my book looking vaguely worked-on for the giant in-front-of-all-the-professors thesis topic presentation, and let me just say, john watson looks lovely with cartoon hands.


let's hope his face looks as adorable when I'm done with it.
(and then I still have sherlock to go...oh what did I get myself into?!)

DW- Master- lol internets

this is gonna drive me crazy, now..

So I saw this pic on Texts From the TARDIS, and it reminded me of a Ten2/Rose fic that I can't remember the title of for the life of me...but it involved them shagging in a bouncy castle, possibly something to do with Tony's birthday? And Jackie being all pissed about them doing it afterwards...Can anyone remember this fic?

Anyway, the picture is hilarous:

Also: bonus pic, because this one is too perfect not to post. If someone writes a fic for this one, I'd love them forever:
PoTO- Erik- smirk

Man, do I miss RTD...

So,a few months back I bought The Writer's Tale: The Final Chapter and read about 3/4 of it before being distracted by fic and school and adopting a cat and the ridiculousness of being a third parent to my three little siblings...which is a shame, really, because it's Doctor Who and full of awesome and hilarious abandoned plotlines and might-have-beens...but hey, that's life.

So, anyway, I picked it up again today, and came across this brilliant bit of dialogue that was cut from The End Of Time: Part Two:

Come on, how fan-freaking-tastic is that?!

(I'm posting this from my phone, because I'm all cozied up in bed with a sleeping kitten next to me and can't get to my computer, so let's hope the picture shows up okay!)
ETA: Rory being adorable, in case you were curious-

I'm in the TARDIS

TARDIS on Google Maps!

If you get in just the right spot while looking at this TARDIS on Google Maps, you can look inside!

Just click on the double arrow that appears to venture around the console room.

Google Maps TARDIS interior

The Google Maps version is much better lit than what we see on the show, and I actually like the new interior now that I can see it properly :P
