[livejournal.com profile] lunawho has written a long awaited sequel to The Planets Bend Between Us, her first Doctor Who/Fringe crossover fic, taking place in both Pete's World and the proper Fringe universe.  This one is called Ghost in the Machine.  It is extremely good.  If you've got the least interest in Fringe I suggest you run, not walk, over there right now.

Sometimes there are fics that are just so good that they make you ache.  You cry and you laugh and you just enjoy them so very much that they make wading through everything else worth it, because they are just so very beautiful.  Last night I read one such fic and then today I turned around and read it again.  I have seldom been tempted to read long fics more than once.  This one I simply couldn't resist reading twice and may go back for a third go around.  It was just so gorgeous and enthralling.  It will stay with me for a long, long time.

If you haven't had the pleasure of reading The Art of Being Human by [livejournal.com profile] sapphire_child, I really strongly urge you to do so.  It's an AU retelling of Human Nature/Family of Blood with Ten and Rose.  It is the best Ten and Rose one I've read and I've read some beauties.  [livejournal.com profile] wildwinterwitch's and CharmingSlayer's come to mind.  It is more than worth the time it will steal from your life.

Ficcy Stuff

amberfocus: (Christmas Nine)
I am thinking about writing a third poem for the narrative poetry challenge at [livejournal.com profile] then_theres_us.  This is a bad idea for my writing schedule.  I adore poetry and it's been so much fun. It would be a happy one this time, but I don't know.  If you haven't been over there reading what's coming out of this challenge you should go, even if poetry isn't your cup of tea.  True you will probably be a sobbing wreck from all the delicious ANGST coming boiling out of the comm at the moment, but it's worth it. *laughs*  So much good stuff.  And some of it from folks who haven't posted anything ficcy in ages.

I keep telling myself that two is probably enough and I really want to finish this chapter of Three Hour Tour, I'm 1000 words into the next chapter of Leap of Faith and I'm halfway through the next chapter of You're What? so I ought to do that if I'm going to keep procrastinating THT.  I've also been eyeing Vortex and Tumbles with that sort of I ought to finish those, shouldn't I? sort of thing going on.  But mostly I'd like to work on THT.  If anyone has seen my smut!muse can you kick her in the butt and send her back to me, please?  And still no Zeppelins'verse muse.  I may need to reread that entire fic again.  Or just the plot parts which should cut out, oh, 50,000 words or so of smut and character development. *snerks*

I guess I should be happy that I'm just writing so much again.  It feels good and right.  I did, btw, hit 50,000 words during NaNo month, just not on anything goalish.  *rolls eyes*  Yes, me, I love deadlines and the sound they make as they go whistling past.  I should have figured the attempt was stupid.  No, wait, I did.  I write what I want to write when I want to write it.  Trying to force things just doesn't work for me and I knew this about me, but wanted to try it anyway.  Oh, well.  Lesson learned.

Am thinking of writing a sequel to I Believe in Santa Claus (here if anyone wants to get in the Christmas spirit a bit early:  http://amberfocus.livejournal.com/177974.html) called All I Want for Christmas where Nine actually takes Rose to the planet North Pole mentioned in the first fic.  I may or may not make it part of the Romance-a-thon.  There are a couple of prompts that would fit.  Just not sure whether or not it would be blatantly shippy or just sweet fluff like the first one.  We shall see, I suppose.

I am so tired of being sick.  Staying in bed all the time except to get up and get the kids to and from school is not fun (though it does aid my writing).  This latest bit with the food not staying down is painful and annoying.  I hate stomach bugs.  At least the Chinese food seems to be staying down (Sesame chicken and egg flower soup) because I sure as heck can't cook at the moment.  Oh, speaking of food not staying down, found a good new fic (so far) from an unknown (to me, looks relatively new) author that has a married Ten/Rose getting amnesia while Rose is pregnant (hence the food not staying down part) and they wake up in the TARDIS having lost the last three years and they wake up with Gallifreyan wedding rings on and are trying to figure out what the hell is going on and the Doctor just scanned Rose's stomach and it ended.  I'm hooked.  I love this subgenre of the amnesia storyline (wrote one myself once). *laughs*  2 chapters so far:  http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=39672  It's a sequel, but there's enough info in the first chapter to catch you up if you don't have the time to read them without feeling any loss.  I'm going to go read the other two just because I liked this one so much.  A few (very few) tense shifts I noticed, but no blatant typos, so yay.

Okay, I am going to beta fic tomorrow, to the three people I owe fics back to.  Promise.  And answer my outstanding comments on fic.

So I went to sleep last night after reading [livejournal.com profile] ahedonia's An Education which had gotten to the love scene of hotness  (I strongly rec this fic, by the way, it's brilliant) and had sexy Nine/Rose dreams all night and woke up wanting to write...baby!fic????  I haven't had the urge to do that since...I don't know, months.  Well, there is one line in it that probably triggered it when SPOILERS )That's probably what put it into my subconscious.  Then the first thing I see when I check my f-list this morning is [livejournal.com profile] milieva laying out a whole new series of Nine/Rose baby!fic.  So maybe that urge will pass and I can live vicariously through her writing. *laughs*  Either that or finish writing You're What?  Though that's not on today's agenda, if LoF gets finished, I might work on it a little.  I feel a bit better today.  I got seven straight hours of sleep and will probably take a nap later on because this cough is still bothering me and sleep seems to improve it.

I'm actually looking forward to writing today instead of dreading it, which can only mean good things.

Frin wrote me Nine/Rose fluff that promises to turn into smut in later chapters.  It's got magic sand that doesn't get in uncomfortable places. *laughs*  In fact it's called Magic Sand.

Also, I have almost finished the next chapter of Three Hour Tour.  My brain couldn't concentrate on complicated plot or I'd be working on LoF.  So anyway chapter six of THT will be forthcoming either late tonight or some time tomorrow.  My knee still hurts, but I didn't need hydrocodone today, just lots of ice.  Probably will tonight though.

Darn it, I do not need this doggone Eleven/Rose plot bunny dancing around in my head.  Make.  It.  Go.  Away.  I have too much else to write right now.

Am up late being distracted by other people's fic.  Oh, fic rec while I'm at it:  One Last Stop (Rose) by [livejournal.com profile] tasogareban, part one of which is found here http://tasogareban.livejournal.com/29882.html.  It is completed.  Not chapter linked yet, but you can find part 2 and 3 easily enough on her LJ page.  Ten/Rose, has smut, and the ending made me cry like a baby.  She broke my heart with it.  But sooooooooo good.

Whiney, painful bit )

amberfocus: (BW Rose with Color Scarf)
Fiction by Mental_Meander:  http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=38271 is a rather horrifying (in a good way) look at what might happen to Ten2 when Eleven disappeared at the end of The Big Bang and he was washed right out of history.  Rose is the only one that ever remembers him being there in Pete's World and she goes from these gorgeous, bittersweet flashbacks of their life together, to these terrifying fearful moments of trying to find any trace of him left.  It's a fairly long one shot at over 11,000 words, so be prepared to settle in for a bit.

It does have A LOT of phonetic dialog at times which is one of my pet peeves.  I don't mind the occasional hanging g or t to get the flavor of the accent, but all the time annoys me.  Since the majority of the fic is not spoken it's not too hard to overlook.  There is one bit of teasing over Rose's accent that I flat out did not like because it felt out of character for me according to how the Doctor had been written up to that point, but the rest of the fic more than makes up for it, believe me or I wouldn't be reccing it.  It's heartwrenching, beautiful, and well-written.  Heavy angst.

Found an interesting Nine/Rose fic today.  Nice writing style, very introspective, good banter, dealing with the early days so far, sort of missing scenes, fill in the gaps, or bits in between.  And I had to look up a word.  Any fic that makes me do that is rare. *grins*  It's four chapters with more to come.
