Fic: My Shadow in the Sun

Title: My Shadow in the Sun
Author: lareinenoire
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters / Pairings: Elizabeth I, Ten, Donna, Eleven, Amy; Ten/Elizabeth
Rating: PG13
Wordcount: 2836
Warnings: historiographical dodginess, emphasizin ur wimminz, gratuitous quotation, royalty in compromising positions, dodgy monarchical theory, wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey
Summary: Their history was written in snatched moments, between a girl who became a Queen, and an impossible man with two hearts and a weakness for clever ladies.
NB: Title comes from the poem 'On Monsieur's Departure' by Queen Elizabeth I. This cribs shamelessly from The Girl in the Fireplace, but that particular structure just worked too, too well for me to resist. Many thanks to my lovely beta-reader, rosamund, and to angevin2 for encouragement.

My care is like my shadow in the sun, / Follows me flying, flies when I pursue itCollapse )

Kynges Games (4/4)

Title: Kynges Games
Author: lareinenoire
Characters: Ten, Martha, and an assortment of sixteenth-century people
Summary: September 1529. Why are there zombies in London? More importantly, who is creating zombies in London using a device from the fifty-first century? But when the Doctor and Martha find themselves in the middle of the biggest royal divorce case in English history, unexplained zombies are the least of their problems.
Rating: PG13
Prompt: There are peculiar alien goings-on at the court of Henry VIII, but the King hasn't noticed; he's more interested in this charming young woman who's appeared from nowhere, much to Anne Boleyn's annoyance.
Warnings: Zombies, bad puns, humanist jokes, Epic Legal Fail (Ecclesiastical), and unintentional drunkenness.
Notes: Bending canon a little, since the Doctor implies at the end of The Last of the Time Lords that they've never met Henry VIII. The title comes from a line in Thomas More's History of King Richard III.

Apologies for how long this took -- the past few weeks have been a bit mad for me. Many, many thanks to my lovely beta-readers rosamund, angevin2, and gileonnen. The entire fic is also archived at AO3.

Title: The Winter of Our Discontent, Part III: My Kingdom for a Doctor
Authors: lareinenoire and rosamund
Summary: Something is rotten in the state of England...and it's not just the heads mounted above the gates of York. Can the Doctor and Jack solve the mystery and, even more importantly, can they sober up in a land without safe drinking water?
Rating: PG13 for language and thematic material
Wordcount (Part III): 12,260 (including footnotes)
Warnings (for all three parts): Some violence, drunkenness, Jack Harkness behaving like Jack Harkness, implied debauchery, implied slash, bad chronicle jokes, very bad Shakespeare jokes, and possibly educational footnotes.
Disclaimer: Jack, the Doctor, and the TARDIS belong to RTD. Everybody else has been dead long enough that they really shouldn't care.
Notes: Set between the end of the third series of Doctor Who ('The Last of the Time Lords') and the beginning of the second series of Torchwood ('Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang'). Unfortunately, the authors are long-winded and LJ forced us to split this into two separate posts. All the notes are HERE. Thanks to angevin2 for beta-reading!

Part I: This Sun of York
Part II: The Devil Went Down to Anjou

Eight hours. He tried not to show how much that had thrown him, glancing across at the Doctor. He didn't help matters, shrugging and muttering something about 'wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey'.Collapse )
