Do NOT pull a Laurel Hamilton and have your main character wear jeans, a red or blue polo shirt and sneakers in every scene in every book for the first seven books and yet describe that same outfit every single time. Please do not do that.
LOL I know exactly what you mean - I’ve read quite a bit of Laurel Hamilton. None of the stories in this series (well I hope it’s a series) will progress like hers did. Shaking my head. She lost a lot of readers after a several books in. I’ve read a great deal of reader comments about her Anita Blake books and when readers lost their faith and love for them ;)
My main issue is gee what would this stylish character wear and how the heck do I describe it without it sounding too catalog or fashion column? I ended up looking up Southern fashion online and then being horrified by what people interpret as Southern fashion. I don’t know too many people who wear what some of these fashion websites seem to think that those of us in the Deep South wear.
Pairing: Tentoo x Rose
Characters: Rose Tyler, The Tenth Doctor (duplicate)
Genres: fluff, romance, humour
Rating: All Ages
Summary: "Welllll, I knew how much you were looking forward to the weekend so I thought we should start it off as soon as possible." The Doctor surprises Rose on her way home from work with one of her favourite things.
Word count: ~ 2,500
Rose is barely up the tube steps when she spots the Doctor leaning against a lamppost, a mischievous smile on his face and what she hopes is a paper bag full of chips in his hand.
She smiles, walking up to him, and pecks him in greeting, inhaling his scent as she does so. She’s knackered after her day of work and though she spent her commute daydreaming of jammies and takeaway, the reality of finding the Doctor waiting for her assures that her evening is off to the perfect start. Not wanting to pull away, she burrows her face into his chest, thankful for the extra warmth of his coat.
"You know, some people would find it creepy that you knew just when to be here."

I’m working on the final chapter and one shot today. Not sure when it will be betaed and posted but I’m hopeful in the next week :) LOL I think what I have posted is already around 69,000 words!

Notes: Birthday fic for Samihiggins (who has been super patient while I finish this!) I didn’t think it would be novel length but I seem to say that a lot LOL. Big hugs to Sorrywhatever who jumped in to beta this fic and it really needed it. I realized I just couldn’t write this one without someone checking me over. This chapter - Rose makes a decision and learns what’s going on in Persephon. Sorry about the evil cliffie but another chapter will be posted in the not too distant future :)
