So: I'm not really sure what to make of this. Mostly I hope you enjoy it, because I think it got away from me a bit. Basically, I sent someone very pretty and empathic to try and take away some of Ten's emo, and, well, you go ahead and tell me how you think that worked out. I thought about making the title of this "TENTH DOCTOR NEEDS A HUG; DISCUSS" but then figured that would sound unprofessional. Heh. (Anyway, my point is that I might have to do another Ten/Inara crossover to do everything I set out to do in the first place. You know, all the stuff the muse-iness of this distracted me from. Would any of you complain?)
Fake cut goes to my DW fic journal, planetbarcelona.
Title: Somebody Else
Author: ninamazing, or Nina
Word Count: 1743
Spoilers: Takes place somewhere in Series 3, before "Utopia." Maybe right after "42." Yeah, that sounds good to me. And set after Serenity-the-movie for Whedonites.
Characters: Ten, and Inara Serra from Firefly. Whee!
Author's Note: This was done from the prompt [ "I didn't realize it would happen like this." ] in our very own Ten/Inara Ficathon of AWESOME. The lovely goldy_dollar beta-ed this fic to a fine sheen (and more importantly, bolstered my courage!). I kind of love her.
( The only warning she had was the rhythmic, throaty rattle — she knew what it was even before the TARDIS whirred into existence at the center of her shuttle. )
