Title: Taken for Granted
Characters: Jo Grant, Mike Yates, Jack Harkness

Summary:  A certain Captain thinks Jo is a lovely thing. Too bad.

--

Title:  A Mysterious Customer
Wordcount: approx. 41,000
Characters: Three, Jo, the Brig, Sergeant Benton, Yates, the Master, UNIT
Summary:  Dragons are mysteriously appearing in the countryside and UNIT must investigate. Does Bessie hold the key?

This is the fourth and presumably final tale for the 'Custom Vehicle' series in which the little yellow roadster 'Bessie' always has a part in saving the day.  It was very nearly two stories, but they were so intertwined I ended up with just having one that is twice the length of the others.  A very long time ago I read a prompt from someone (who I no longer recall) that said "Three, Degado!Master, Dragon"  and this was the result.  The recurring OC for this series, a government aide by the name of John Babcock, does make a reappearance.

It being rather lengthy, I won't post it here at Dwth, but you are welcome and encouraged to enjoy it over here:

A small round of drabbling going by as I've revisited a favorite era with a friend who had never seen them before. First a bit of humor regarding the ridiculousness of some of the creatures encountered, then one nod for lost_spook's favorite pair and two for Three and Sarah Jane.

Title: And to Top it off, No One Believes Me
Characters: Jo Grant, Mike Yates
Prompt: 333: grievance
Summary:  Post-Peladon, Jo finally gets her night out with Mike.
-- One minute you're going out...the next thing you know... )
Title: In Good Hands
Characters: Liz, the Brigadier
Prompt: 336: transfer
Summary: Where on Earth could be safer?
-- I want a transfer... )

Title: Rebuild that Sand Castle (it never fell)
Characters: Three, Sarah-Jane
Summary: Sarah-Jane may need a vacation from their vacation.  (set just after Death to the Daleks, prompt 'happy place')

Sunshine and warmth seemed impossible )

Title: Relative to Who

Title: Doesn't Even Throw a Shadow
Characters: Yates, with, Jo, Three and Benton
Wordcount: 600
Summary: Captain Yates wishes he could capture just a little of Jo's attention, if only the Doctor weren't outclassing him. A short ficlet for Mike's sad plight.

A/N: Poor old Mike. Ever since he lost that date that Jo even dressed up for just because the Doctor abruptly swept her away to another planet, I’ve felt a little sorry for him. He never stood a chance. I blame this ficlet on [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook who made me go look at my plot-bunnies and hence rediscover this one.

He knew she was only being polite. But... )

"You're not fat enough for Santa!" declared a small boy's voice.

Title: Wishing on a Peppermint Star
Characters: Three, Jo, Benton, Yates with reference to the Brigadier
Wordcount: 5,419
Summary: A light little Christmastide tale for Three, Jo, Benton and Yates. A small, lost alien is somewhere amid the holiday shoppers, but we mustn't let that stop the children from seeing Santa. Ho ho!

A/N: I've always thought Three would've made a dandy Santa. Written for the Christmas season, 2009.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] starbells for dreaming up the concept of this particular creature, and to [livejournal.com profile] everloyal for her creative ideas and helpful advising, you're splendid, both of you. Thank you also to my Brits for being willing to put up with 'Santa' rather than 'Father Christmas' for most of the tale. There is a mild, brief fluffiness in this holiday package.

Title: Variable Similitude
Characters: Benton, Yates, the Brigadier, Three, Jo
Wordcount: 7,721 in 11 short chapters
Summary: John Benton only wanted a cup of tea - but everything just went downhill from there. A late-night runaround at UNIT.

A/N: 'Or When a Duck is not a Duck'. My family complained 'there just isn't enough fic with Benton out there!' and I had to agree, so I thought I'd write one. Enjoy.

The Master lifted his chin, looking down his nose with injured nobility. "By your own professional opinion, Miss Grant, seeing as this is *your* planet, what do you recommend?"

Title: Snowbound
Characters: Three, Jo, Delgado!Master with brief appearance of Benton and Yates.
Wordcount: 6,925 in two chapters
Summary: Even the most improbable alliances can occur with the application of enough snow.

A/N: This was written December 2008 for [livejournal.com profile] stunt_muppet's request: a short story in which Three, Jo and Delgado's Master end up in a domestic setting, but the only way I could think of this particular threesome being caught in any kind of domestic situation would be by involuntary entrapment. Or a blizzard. Enjoy.

(I am a hopeless fluff-level Three/Jo shipper, I admit, so this is a favorite)

In which Bessie saves the day

Titles: A Custom Vehicle, A Custom Order, A Custom Design and A Mysterious Customer
Characters: Third Doctor, Jo, the Brigadier, Benton, Yates, the Master and UNIT
Wordcount:
A Custom Vehicle - 11,104
A Custom Order - 17,387
A Custom Design - 17,987
A Mysterious Customer - approx. 35,000
Summary: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart faces an unwelcome government audit, surely a good excuse to chase after aliens in the English countryside.

A/N: I have serious vehicle-love for Bessie, surely one of the best heroic cars ever. The first story started out as a singular tale in homage to Bessie's awesomeness, then grew into a three-episode-arc. I'm not entirely sure there won't eventually be a fourth one either! They are 'classic episode' style, about 6 fat chapters apiece. These are loosely set in the time where his TARDIS being inoperational, the Doctor began pouring his restless tinkering into a little yellow car instead. References are made to the First Doctor serial War Machines. There is one recurring OC, a government aide by the name of John Babcock. Only the last one includes the Master, as it seemed obligatory to let him make a showing, it being Three's era.

A Custom Vehicle

Aliens, strange machines, a quarry and forgotten military tunnels in England! It must be Three and Jo again. And yes, this Cold War era underground city really does exist in Corsham - truth is stranger than fiction.
A Custom Order

Bessie is missing! Why, and what will become of her? Is the fate of Britain involved? Of course.
A Custom Design

Dragons are mysteriously appearing in the countryside and UNIT must investigate. Does Bessie hold the key?

And here it is - the one that Started It All.

Title: The Annual UNIT Picnic
Characters: Three, Jo, the Brigadier, Benton, Yates and UNIT
Wordcount: 3520
Summary: The Brigadier and UNIT attempt to enjoy their annual summer picnic, except for an odd alien occurrence which isn't the Doctor's fault, of course.

A/N: After thoroughly enjoying revisiting old favorites via youtube (before the Great Purge that took down so much classic Who goodness) I found myself wondering how some mundane holiday event would have gone at UNIT, hence writing this rather cracky bit all in a go (though one has to allow for a stack of coconut cream pies to have been available, for instance, and finding out 'badminton' has another name Across the Pond, etc.) This led to the discovery of a marvel I had previously been unaware of - A Teaspoon and an Open Mind and... well, it's all been a crazy ride from there.

This fic took Second Place for Classic Crackfic at the Children of Time Awards.

This has remained one of my most popular DW fics, most likely because clean humour is always fun for everyone, and it's only one chapter. At Teaspoon: The Annual UNIT Picnic

'This is more like it,' Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart commented. 'Nothing like a good picnic to raise the men's spirits.' )
