a madness shared by two by lyricalprose [Reviews - 54]

beautiful sight (we're happy tonight) by lyricalprose [Reviews - 1]
“So why d–don’t you like it?” Lee asks, about a half an hour later. He’s skating backwards in front of her, with his arms held loosely out in front of him, in case Donna needs someone to grab onto while she navigates the perils of the ice-skating rink.

divinity by lyricalprose [Reviews - 4]
The Doctor shoots Jack what is probably intended to be a scathing look. Unfortunately for him, any intimidating effect is mitigated by the absolutely ludicrous effect of the too-large flower crown sliding lower on his head. His ears, in the end, are the only thing that keep it from sliding off his head and down around his neck.

ex astris, scientia by lyricalprose [Reviews - 35]

family man by lyricalprose [Reviews - 9]

footsteps on your grave by lyricalprose [Reviews - 7]

heedless of the wind and weather by lyricalprose [Reviews - 6]
The Doctor finds himself staring blankly at a small Christmas tree, decorated with blinking multicolored lights, that is sitting just next to the mirror. “I didn’t know you were so–” He trails off, poking gingerly at the miniature tree, which somehow seems to make it blink even more vigorously. “–enthusiastic about Christmas.”

intro to interpersonal communication by lyricalprose [Reviews - 3]

lather, rinse, repeat by lyricalprose [Reviews - 4]

sense out of chaos by lyricalprose [Reviews - 1]
