Meme: Stump the author

Ganked from [info]yamx .

1.) Go to my master fic list and pick out a line or two from one of my stories. (Must be a full line, please -- no sentence fragments or speech tags or other such nonsense.)
2.) I will respond with which story of mine I think it's from.
3.) A drabble to anyone who stumps me. If you do stump me, feel free to request a situation and characters.

(If you don't stump me, feel free to try again. Let's say up to three tries per person, but if you win you can't play again.)

The Doctor doesn’t even glance up from the mechanism he is adjusting.

That would be Jack, disguised as Ten, talking to Sarah Jane in The Children of Time Will Gather

Darnit! Thought I'd been fairly non-specific there.

Ah well, try this one:

"Jack's a good lad, an' a clever one."

Other than it's from Nine's POV, I have no idea. It could be from any story in the Changes!verse other than Clues.

Prompt, please?

Yes, it's Changesverse: to be specific, chapter 8 of Lyonesse:

"You shouldn't have told Jack to stay there," she blurts out.

The Doctor gives her one of those 'stupid ape' looks. "Somebody had to stay. Wasn't gonna be you, an' I'm the only one who knows where to find the right tools."

Bloody hell, she's got to spell it out for him. "He would have volunteered."

"'Course he would have done," the Doctor says, frowning. "Jack's a good lad, an' a clever one."

"Yeah, but you didn't give him a chance to say anything. 'S like you didn't trust him."

The Doctor rolls his eyes. "Not in the habit of sharin' a bed with someone I don't trust, me."


Prompt? Same as I gave yamx: Rose, either regenerating Nine or just regenerated Ten, in the TARDIS: "Where's Jack?"

They may both take dictation and do filing, but the secretary to the V.P. of Marketing ranks way above her sister who works for the Loading Dock Foreman. It’s probably been that way for centuries.

Darnit.

Once again:

He will hold him all night, if needs must, and through the day. He will hold him until they both turn into trees and sink their roots deep into the deck of the TARDIS.

One of my favorite lines. From Dilemma, and inspired vaguely by the myth of Baucis and Philemon.

You really have to be more generic if you want to stump me (or most authors).

I'll have you know that line inspired a 3am post EoT Donna fic.

Anyways... I shall be back!

In a sec. First before I forget:

And what will be the next step down into madness?

Now I'm off to get the link.

Here we go: Comfort Tree

I'm not positive, but the only story of mine in which someone is genuinely concerned about going crazy is "Ghosts of Gallifrey"

Now I'm off to get the link.

Thanks! *saves link for reading later*

*sighs* Oh well, maybe the next time the meme comes back around.

Have fun reading!
