no.

i knew this fic would do this to me and i still prompted it and you still wrote it

but that's neither here nor there, right

ALL THE COMPANION DESCRIPTIONS

I ONLY KNOW THE BASIC FACTS ABOUT THE CLASSIC WHO COMPANIONS AND YOU MADE ME WANT TO KNOW MORE

ROSE TYLER, NOOOOO

Dawn sees flashes of gold when her fingers tangle in Janice's hair. Doesn't mention it, though.

THIS. ALWAYS.

ALSO ALL YOUR OTHER COMPANION DESCRIPTIONS.

MARTA, WHO IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BREAK AND HE BREAKS HER ANYWAY

DONNA IS LAUGHTER AND CARE THAT SHE IS SEARCHING FROM AND THEY CRY OVER HER TOGETHER

She might ruin them both, might make them both something other than themselves. She doesn't mean to. Love is as it is.

I AM NOT MASOCHISTIC ENOUGH TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE AMY SECTION ATM. SOME WOUNDS NEVER HEAL, OKAY

RORY. CLARA.

THE DOCTOR DOES NOT UNDERSTAND HOW A GIRL CAN SPLIT A THOUSAND WAYS AND STILL BLEED. WHAT IS THE PERFECTION OF THIS SENTENCE.

THE LAST PARAGRAPH. THE LAST LINE.

I REFUSE.

I'm completely willing to blame this entirely on you, just for the record.

i barely know the original series either i just watched a fuckton of documentaires before the 50th

MARTA, WHO IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BREAK AND HE BREAKS HER ANYWAY

IM STILL SO BITTER ABOUT MARTHA, SHE DESERVED SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT HE GAVE HER

I AM NOT MASOCHISTIC ENOUGH TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE AMY SECTION ATM. SOME WOUNDS NEVER HEAL, OKAY

ah ha ha same why did i do this

THE DOCTOR DOES NOT UNDERSTAND HOW A GIRL CAN SPLIT A THOUSAND WAYS AND STILL BLEED. WHAT IS THE PERFECTION OF THIS SENTENCE.

TH E MOST IMPORTANT

THE LAST PARAGRAPH. THE LAST LINE.

I REFUSE.

i just thought of the prompt, you wrote this monstrosity in response to it

oh nice

YEAH, AND DIDN'T THEY ALL IN SOME WAY REALLY BUT ALSO, MARTA MARTA MARTA, THE GIRL WHO SAW HOW LITTLE SHE WAS GETTING AND GOT AWAY. SUCH A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW TO DO A "GIRL RUNS AWAY" GOOD ENDING. tvd should've learned from marta exiting the tardis on her own

OKAY I AM READY NOW TO TALK:

He is an idiot.

YES YES YES.

She throws him into the arms of a little girl with the grace of dead gods and he wrecks her with a kiss on the cheek returned twelve years late.

YES. IT WAS DOOMED FROM THE START. AND BOTH THE TARDIS AND THE DOCTOR LET IT HAPPEN ANYWAY.

She lets Amy love him, love her. She lets the stars fall in love with themselves, thinking maybe they might save what they both so wonderfully ruined.

BUT THEN AGAIN, THE DOCTOR AND AMY WERE NEVER MUCH FOR SAVING THINGS, WEREN'T THEY

He's Tinkerbelle to Amy's Peter, makes her as fae as him, and Amy makes him as her.i love love love this, usually everyone, myself included is v. "amy = wendy, doctor ( ... )

martha is my endgame girl, honestly.

BUT THEN AGAIN, THE DOCTOR AND AMY WERE NEVER MUCH FOR SAVING THINGS, WEREN'T THEY

RIGHT ??

i love love love this, usually everyone, myself included is v. "amy = wendy, doctor = peter" oriented, and i don't think it's a bad parallel but also amy=peter & doctor=tinkerbell? BLESS YOU, THIS IS PERFECT. and because WIKI says it better than i could,

I'm so utterly charmed by peter pan dynamics and tinkerbelle is ultimately a slave to singular emotions and inhuman desire which, hey, eleven, I hate to break it to you...

(I once wrote a poem that mentioned how pete and tink ruined each other by learning humanity and that selfish fae-ness and i have not gotten over it since)

did i mention i had no idea i shipped amy/eleven until you?? AND LOOK AT WHAT I DO

i'm forever hoping that clara gets to finally be a real solid girl one day. they keep glancing at it then ignorring her personality to make her generic and i just. SHE'S A GIRL LET HER BE THAT.

you know that in that scene by the car, when doctor ( ... )

I know nothing of Whovian things but this? This is magic brought to earth in ink:

He picks up strays and trails them along with him and she forgets to shed tears when they drop like feathers.

Icarus never did fly for long.

Then this, more magic, trailing along the keyboard:

Dawn goes to funerals like dogs go to the pound.

Dawn never really expects to leave, carries the ghosts inside her like a cemetery.

Dawn perhaps mourns more people than she knows, but it never seems like too many.

And then there's this, broken ice and grave pixie dust:

Dawn falls in love as in dreaming. Dawn's eyes are tired and her hands are sleep-soft and Dawn drags her fingers down the length of Janice's skin and wonders how people are made and how they fit and break into each other.

Dawn is so old.

Dawn is new, and dangerous and terriblewonderful and Janice kisses her anyway.

And of course, in closing, you bring all the wonder and terror of magic together in small, ravenous pieces:

But there’s a second in between her breaths where she falls asleep ( ... )

WOW!

This was utterly breathtakingly, beautiful angst.

I love how you captured each companion. Each ounce of pain and poetry flowing across the page like freaking fairy dust.

You make it hurt so good.

I tried SO HARD to capture the parts of the companions both dawn, and in that vein, the TARIS herself would see in them and I'm SO SO GLAD that everyone is digging what I came up with.

You make it hurt so good.

I try, I try

Okay, I'm back.

Let's see what I can do....

Weaving moonlight between their fingers, plucking hearts out of chests and sewing them into stars.
Making this fit into canon is one of the most brilliantly shitty things you have ever done to me. there's a reason why dawn is my fave What is so miraculously heartbreakingly PERFECT about Dawn is that you can canonically put her ANYWHERE. She is even more versatile than the Doctor - the Doctor has agency, he goes wherever he wants, anyone can write him anywhere because he can just want it bad enough and then boom there he is. Dawn is the created girl, she's fabricated, she's stitched into the world with words alone. She belongs to all worlds because she is of no world.

I hate you.

She is real, or she isn't, the difference is nominal.
HAHAHAHA

She wants to ruin him all on her own.There is so, so, so much about the section on the Doctor that I love. But THIS. THIS IS WHY WE ARE FRIENDS. Because fuck anyone that doesn't get that Dawn has the ( ... )
