Title: Trojan Lamb
Character: Rory Williams, 11th Doctor
Rating: G.
Word count: 100
Notes: For the [ profile] dw100 prompt 371: armor
Summary: The Doctor has a plan. Rory isn’t sure he likes this.

‘You don’t spit polish that,’ complained Rory as the Doctor’s hanky fluttered past his face, over the dented breastplate. ‘I’m playing along, all right? Don’t make it worse.’ The Doctor rubbed intently at an old scuff mark on the metal, then flourished the hanky and returned it meditatively to his pocket.

‘That’ll do, Rory,’ he murmured appreciatively.

‘Okay, so the bronze will deflect those beams, but I don’t understand why the cape—‘

The Doctor quirked a small, rueful smile and placed his hands on Rory’s shoulders. ‘You’re my Trojan lamb: tough, metal outside, squishy fleecy softness on the inside!’

Just stopping in quickly before toiling in the kitchen dungeons. I expect to have a rough draft for a Doctor Who story finished by tonight. I need some beta readers, so if anyone would be interested in looking over a quite silly story with the 10th Doctor, please leave a comment. It will be around 1 000 words, if everything ties up neatly. I may not have a typed copy until tomorrow, but I'd still like to know if (and how many) people can take a look at it before it is posted.

It's called 'Last of the Time Lords' and it's a send up of many 10th Doctor tropes, but mostly being "The Last," following it to its natural conclusion (that someone would eventually set up a charity for the Doctor).

Iris Wildthyme is also in it.

Title: ‘The Queen Must Die’
Author: [ profile] philosophercat
Prompt: Six with Tegan, no romance, adventure. They both have strong personalities; some headbutting and lots of banter.
Character/s: The Doctor (Sixth), Tegan Jovanka.
Rating: G.
Warning/s: A significant source of dietary crack.
Recipient: Written for [ profile] metalkatt.
Word count: 2185 words.
Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who.
Author's notes: Written for 2009 Summer of Six Sixathon. This is a pinch hit, written rather quickly so I expect that there will be substantial revisions once the following chapters are complete. I also borrowed part of prompt #3 which was: understanding that values are not the same across all cultures. The truly crack elements will appear in the following chapters.

Summary: The TARDIS decides that her pilot has something to learn. She takes the 6th Doctor and Tegan to a planet unfamiliar to both where they find themselves embroiled in an intrigue.

philosophercat: (5th Doctor)
Since I have recently finished Relative Chronologies, the end of the beginning of the 'Valeyard-tries-again' arc, I am moving on to... Alexandria. The winner of the poll. *claps* And so, to kick us off, I am borrowing a tactic from my pomo for my 5 and Peri crackepic, and have made a teaser:


Or maybe I'll just make silly teasers for all of my Fifth Doctor stories?

Yes, starring the 5th Doctor, Tegan Jovanka and Vislor Turlough in late Hellenistic Alexandria! Wooo! \o/ What fun this will be. It will be tricky. One of the main characters got torn to bits by an angry Christian mob in real life... But this is SO not historically accurate. You'll see when- or if- you read it. I will try not to get too crazy with details but I've already planned something that is about... a thousand years off in terms of chronology. Ah well! It will be FUNNY though. And making it funny is totally worth messing up early Renaissance history a little. It's only fan fiction. ^_^

If I could bring Catullus back from the dead so he could be Ovid's best friend, I can pull this one off. :P
