Title: Two Octobers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: She dreams, strange, scattered dreams that taste like salt when she swallows them away.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~1000
A/N: I'm pinch-hitting for the [livejournal.com profile] mary_mcdonnell Minor Character Month of Love, which gave me a chance to explore Rose Darko! She's one of my favorite characters so this was a fun opportunity. The first drabble is from a collection I wrote three years ago featuring various characters Mary has played. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] meryl_edan for the beta!
Disclaimer: None of it is mine. The last line in the third drabble is from "Mad World" by Tears for Fears.

She smokes too much these days. )

Title: Some Days
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: It's not a problem.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~580
A/N: I don't actually watch Criminal Minds except for the episodes Erin Strauss (Jayne Atkinson) is in, but I'm intrigued by this little twist to her character and this is what happened. Still not sure how I feel about this particular plot point, but if it gives Jayne a decent storyline, I'm all for it! Spoilers for 7x09.

1. Post your Holiday wishlist to your LJ. Items can be fannish or not, small or extravagant. Have fun!
2. Look around your flist and grant any wishes you can to OTHERS. This includes sending actual gifts if you want!
3. Re-post your wishlist two weeks before the holiday as a reminder.


This has been going around my flist, and the latest [livejournal.com profile] bsg_epics post finally convinced me to make one myself!

My wish list! )

♥ Link me if you've made one of these posts - I've lost track already.

Title: Secrets and Stars
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: There’s something to be said for going from a footnote in a textbook to the most influential woman left alive to change one’s feelings about the press.
Rating: G
Word Count: ~1470
A/N: Yeah, you all knew it was coming. The potential for Laura Roslin and Sarah Jane Smith interaction is so fantastic, I couldn't resist. This one got away from me a bit; I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, but the idea was too good to pass up! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] marzipanilla and [livejournal.com profile] shyboots for their help!
Disclaimer: Not mine. Knowledge of SJA helpful but not necessary.

She's been on New Caprica for three wet weeks before she sees Sarah Jane Smith. )

Title: We'll Find A New Equation
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: Luke's third night here, she'd woken at half two in the morning to the sound of quiet footsteps on creaking stairs; her sonic lipstick was in her hand and she was halfway out of bed before she remembered.
Rating: G
Word Count: ~2250
A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] sarahjane_fic End of SJA Ficathon. Prompt was: Sarah Jane struggling with being a mum in the early days of Luke's arrival. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wild_force71 for the beta!
Disclaimer: Not mine; title comes from "Chances" by Five for Fighting.

Maria's there, thank God, the first time it really hits her. )

Title: Up
Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita
Summary: They are all here at the end.
Rating: G
Word Count: ~880
A/N: This is obviously heavily inspired by the end of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and specifically, RTD's vision of how it should have ended. There have been a lot of tribute fics and I suppose this is one as well, but mostly it's me trying to make sense of RTD's idea (in no logical way) and also reassuring myself that Sarah Jane lives on, despite the end of the show. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wild_force71 for the beta!
Disclaimer: Not mine.

So we sat at a picnic table and Lis asked me how I would end The Sarah Jane Adventures and I said that she couldn't just retire, could she? I said, "She'd do something magnificent, and then she'd make sure the kids were fine, and then she'd go...up!" "What d'you mean, up?" asked Lis, and she was laughing. "You mean, into the sky?" "Yes!" I said. "She'd go up. Onwards. Outwards. Into the stars. Just...up! D'you fancy that?" "Oh yes," said Lis. "That sounds nice." - Russell T. Davies


You mean, into the sky? )

Title: Character Portraits

Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita

Summary: She is just another part of the painting, and fills her space well. (Sarah Jane, hints of Nine/Rose.)

A/N: Not explicit, but in my mind it's set shortly after Father's Day for Nine and Rose, and about 3 years pre-School Reunion for Sarah Jane.

Disclaimer: Not mine.

There's a park five minutes from her house. )

Title: Our Empty Rooms

Author: [livejournal.com profile] averita

Summary: They don’t talk much, these days, looking to books and the slide of skin to say what needs to be said.

A/N: You guys, I actually wrote fic! What is this? (400 words totally counts. It's been over a year and I'm very much in poetry mode at the moment.) This was written for [livejournal.com profile] adama_roslin's MOL, prompt "lonely". Spoilers for 4.5, set sometime after ADFMS.

Disclaimer: Not mine. Title comes from T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, because I am creative.

It's okay if you blame me. )
Mood:: 'relaxed' relaxed

But for those without Tumblr ask boxes or anyone who might be interested, it seems to be Free For All Question Day! So if anyone has any questions that they'd like to ask or comments they'd like to make, I suppose now is the time. Turning anon commenting on.
