|06:32 pm - I will need a new icon soon|
With Amy, Rory, and the Doctor, my new favorite Team TARDIS.
Observations on writing this team of characters:
--Eleven, seen from an outsider's perspective, can seem like a truly heartless person. O_o WTF, Doctor, I love you, you are not-so-slowly replacing Nine as My Doctor, so why are you scaring me and making my Rory yell at you?
--If I'm not really careful, Rory is going to turn into the only sensible person around. Not that this contradicts canon in any way, really. Hee. <3 Rory.
--Amy keeps insisting on having as much of the story agency as possible in every scene. It's not enough that this is her story emotionally, nor that she is my POV character. She refuses to be passive, even when damaged enough that Rory is seriously panicking over her. Ooookay, Amy. See how long you can keep that up. Not even Amy Pond is a bottomless well of energy. (In other news, Amy's dialogue? An absolute blast to write.)
--I don't know if the emotional stuff is hitting too close to home for me or what, but this rough draft is going to need a severe overhaul. And I'm worried enough that I think I will need to enlist a really good beta, preferably one who has seen the entire 5th series, so as to be familiar with the character dynamics.
*goes off to write what ought to be the last scene*
Current Mood: creative
Oooh, yay, fic! I'll very much look forward to reading this when it's done. :)
Yes, fic! Because dammit, there is just not enough 11-Amy-Rory fic (not to be confused, PLEASE, with 11/Amy/Rory fic O_o) out there, and also they are the first Nu Who Team Tardis to fit this particular story idea, which I've wanted to write for years, but would not work (in my head at least) with any of the other combinations.
Okay, typed too fast, that should be: 11-Amy/Rory fic. Because I 'ship Amy/Rory more than anyone except Wash/Zoe or Megan/Larry, apparently. I just don't ship either of them with the Doctor. *g*
If you're still looking for a beta who's seen all of series five, then I am up for it...
Oh, yes, I am still looking! Okay--I am hoping to finish the rewrite tonight or tomorrow (my West Coast USA time). What is the best way to get the fic to you? PM? Filtered post?
PM for choice. Or you could email it as a doc/ docx/ rtf to email@example.com (that might be the easiest of all).
(bounces in anticipation)
And I need a Rory icon too. Or an 11+Amy+Rory icon. But I think probably a Rory icon, since I already have an 11+Amy icon. Whatever.
I'm still looking for one with all 3 of them. But what I have right now will do for now. :)
The fic went slower than anticipated; hopefully it'll only be a couple of days before it's up, though.

Looking forward to reading your fic.
She refuses to be passive
Yep, that sounds like our Amy. :)
It does, doesn't it? Annoying, though, because now she's requiring revisions to the story. :)
