No writing tonight. I just stared and then got depressed. Maybe tomorrow. I know I’m behind with Sip - sorry :(

26 Language Barrier
I remember reading a Tentoo/Rose fic covering this trope where the author portrayed Tentoo as incapable of speaking anything other than Gallifreyan after the TARDIS left him on Bad Wolf Bay. Although that is not my personal canon, I really loved the story and how he and Rose had to overcome the communication barrier and how focusing on the language barrier helped bridge the fallout at Bad Wolf Bay. That fic sort of represents that trope to me. I think I’ve read another one where the translator circuit went out on the TARDIS and that one was really good too.
When I read stories depicting a particular trope so well like the TenToo one I mentioned, I have a hard time writing it. I love the concept but I don’t think I could write it unless I came up with some new spin on it. Maybe some AU version.
Thanks for asking!
Definitely suffering end-of-fic-itis. Last two chapters are just sort of brutal for me. Granted, this is a more complicated/challenging story for me but still it’s slow going. I even know how this chapter ends. So naturally I’m bumming around on tumblr :)
Pairing: Ten x Rose
Summary: The Doctor and Rose — and the TARDIS — are at a standstill. They need a gentle push in the right direction. What they get is a hard shove, from… the Doctor and Rose. (The TARDIS helps too.)

Do not picture your OTP having a kid and losing said kid in a ball pit.
Here Jamie and I are with the concluding match of our Nine/Rose tattoo shop au, now with the added bonus of a title! If you want to catch up, the first half of this story can be found on ao3 or Teaspoon. If you want to keep our fic off your dash, just savior “fic tennis.”
There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of reasons why the Doctor is a psychologist’s field day.
The fact that he’s enjoying a beautiful woman inflicting pain on him is not one of them.
It’s almost too vanilla to rate, so mundane and cliche and predictable, standard light kink at its routine finest.
