"Do you really think it's wise to go on a date again? You've got kids." River took a sip of tea and swallowed. "The Doctor's not like that." AU. Eleven/River.

Another Girl Who Waited reviews
She remembered that her mother had listened to her father… Except she didn't. She didn't remember. Her father had left them when she was little, so she couldn't possibly remember her father laughing and smiling and twirling her around a brightly lit console room. OC-centric.

Rules Two and Three reviews
Clara abruptly realized that she had never seen the Doctor with that light in his eyes. Sometimes she'd catch a sort of softness when he looked at her, a fondness, maybe even love, but nothing like the way he looked at River—as if the space-haired archaeologist was the center of his universe.

Being Someone's Special Someone reviews
It was past her bedtime, the stars were twinkling, and three-year-old Melody Pond was sitting on her bed and writing to the man who lived in the attic. Not that there was an attic, but he said that he lived up high and so she guessed it was an attic. That's about the highest you could get.

Asgard Come as soon as you can x reviews
She was sort of his friend, not really, and she was damn annoying when she flounced in with her curls and flew his TARDIS better than him. But she was also soft (as he'd discovered when she fell on top of him in that gorgeous black dress) and beautiful (with or without makeup and high heels) and clever (annoyingly so) and so could you really blame him for being attracted to her?

The Right Moment reviews
When the Doctor gets a second chance with Rose courtesy of a mysterious alien, he decides to wait until the right moment to tell her how he feels about her. But a right moment is difficult to come by when one travels in the TARDIS, and the moments after are uncharted territory. He loves her and she loves him-what could go wrong? Anything and everything, that's what.

The-Man-Who-Was-Not-Her-Prince reviews
Rose didn't want the metacrisis, and he left as soon as his TARDIS was fully grown. Three years later, he comes back in his new TARDIS, and Rose practically leaps into his arms. The only catch? She believes he's the original Time Lord who she went on all those adventures with, and as she falls head-over-heels in love with him the Doctor must decide whether to continue the charade.

No, Seriously reviews
AU. Aurelia Lily McGonagall. Scar on her forehead? Nope. Messy black hair? Nope. Almond-shaped green eyes? Nope. It's no wonder no one connects her with her brother. Even if she's fairly popular, she's somewhat overshadowed by Harry Potter. But she takes comfort in the fact that she has her Moony and her Mum and her two best friends, one of whom might be turning into more.

The Utterly Cliche, Slightly Discombobulating Feeling Called Love reviews
Remus Lupin had no intention of falling in love with anyone, let alone a witch with a full life that he could easily destroy. Nymphadora Tonks was still reeling from a heartbreak that she'd never seen coming, and hid her sorrows behind a mask of jokes and happiness. But when she rips her coat sleeve and falls into his arms, something happens that neither of them originally wanted.

Always Alone reviews
Her eyes never see him, Tonks's eyes, the ones that sparkle with mischief and magic. If he was another man he would long for her, but he loves her far too much for that. For oh yes, he loves her, loves her with a passion that consumes him at times, but he knows she will not feel the same. Werewolf, werewolf, werewolf. Always overlooked, always on the sidelines, always alone.
