If Wishes Were Horses by DameRuth [Reviews - 3]

Harmony by DameRuth [Reviews - 9]
A Bliss!verse missing moment, short prequel to "Link." Sometimes, something as simple as a thread of melody can hold tremendous meaning.

Link by DameRuth [Reviews - 57]
The story of how a certain Class II somatic/empathic linkage was forged in the first place. AU Rose/Jack/Nine OT3 -- story begins just after "Boom Town," everything having followed canon till this point.

Three Dances by DameRuth [Reviews - 22]
Three people = three relationships. A night out allows each of the Bliss team to reflect on what they see between each other, and how they are connected. Rose/Jack/Nine OT3 fluff.

The Shared Path by DameRuth [Reviews - 12]
This is the "founding" story for the Bliss!verse, and the first written, though it doesn't fall first in internal chronology. "The Parting of the Ways" doesn't happen they way it did in canon.

Different by DameRuth [Reviews - 35]
Takes up immediately after "The Shared Path." Dalek invasion fleets are one thing, but families can be just as scary in their own way -- especially when Jackie Tyler is involved!

Now by DameRuth [Reviews - 8]
The TARDIS, as I envison her, is a very odd entity; here, she has a philosophical chat, I guess you could call it, with Bliss!Nine.

Jack's Clipboard by DameRuth [Reviews - 40]
Three people, two species, one wedding -- sounds simple, right? Not necessarily; just ask Jack. He's got a clipboard full of possibilites, but will any of them work? AU Rose/Jack/Nine OT3, from the Bliss!verse, post-"Different". (Author self-rating of PG, for mild rudeness.)

Fair Warning by DameRuth [Reviews - 12]
A Bliss!verse smutfic, sort of, though without the smut, if that makes sense. The Doctor knew there was something he should have remembered about a certain type of fruit juice.

Official by DameRuth [Reviews - 8]
The Doctor adopts an Earth custom, for Rose and Jack's benefit. Shameless Bliss!verse mush. Rose/Jack/Nine AU OT3, need I say more?

Chinese by DameRuth [Reviews - 8]
Rose and Mickey have been best mates forever -- can they salvage their friendship after Rose gets engaged? A Bliss!verse story, though I like to think the two of them would have had a similar conversation in *any* universe.

Jackie's Computer by DameRuth [Reviews - 23]
Spin-off from "Jack's Clipboard" -- Jackie's new computer is up and running, thanks to the Doctor and Mickey but she's got a few backdoors into odd parts of cyberspace, and some features that don't come standard. Misc. Bliss!verse bits and pieces, similar in format to "Clipboard." (Author self-rating: PG for mild rudeness.)

Odd Jobs by DameRuth [Reviews - 16]
Jack tells Rose a little about his past to help pass the time, and ends up revealing more than he realizes. In the Bliss!verse, though a little on the angst-ier side this time.
