Tenth Doctor/Rose Tyler
Summary: Shaken after the events on Sanctuary Base of Krop Tor and haunted by the memory of losing each other, the Doctor and Rose are driven into each others’ arms. As they begin to tear down the meticulously constructed walls the Doctor has built around their relationship, he is forced to confront the reasons he put them up in the first place. His reluctance to reveal the demons of his past stifles his attempts to open up to her, but he soon realizes his greatest fear is losing her before he finds a way to show her what she means to him. The pair walk a tenuous line on the threshold of emotional and physical intimacy, and though tension runs high and their frustration intensifies, neither of them is entirely prepared for what may happen once they travel beyond the boundaries of friendship.

P.S. I had a pretty shitty day today, so if you’re thinking of dropping me a line to comment, I’d encourage you to do so! c:

She could sense that he’d gone, even before she opened her eyes. She fumbled around to her left with an arm slightly numb from sleeping on it for hours (as she’d wound up on her stomach again somehow) only to feel empty, cold sheets beneath her hand. “Doctor?” she whispered, on the slight chance that he may have gone to sit at her desk or simply stood up to stretch.
“Nope,” her mother’s voice rang from the vicinity of the door. Her eyes flew open as she flipped over and scrambled to sit, hastily scanning the room to count its occupants. To her relief she found it to be only her mum standing in the door frame. “Must have been dreamin’ you were still on the TARDIS, sweetheart. I knew you two were sleeping together. Dunno why you can’t just admit it.”

Summary: AU Ten/Rose. John Smith is desperate to impress Jeanne Poisson - the girl of his dreams - by learning to ski, but his ski lessons at an out-of-the-way ski lodge change things in ways he never could have expected.
What really ignites this show is Liu’s Watson, an Asian-American woman who is front and centre of the action and is Holmes’s intellectual equal, and absolutely not a love interest. Series creator Robert Doherty described it as a “bromance where one of the bros is female”. A groundbreaking idea, making the creation of a female Watson a masterstroke of modernisation.
Then there’s Adler, a juicy part that is complex enough to attract Natalie “Game of Thrones” Dormer. This Adler shows up Sherlock’s naked, occasionally lesbian, dominatrix incarnation for the malformed adolescent fantasy it is. In Elementary, there’s a scene in which Adler gets dressed in front of Holmes and she turns away as she does so. Sure, you’re not going to get nip-slips on CBS, but it’s hard to believe this isn’t making a deliberate point. No distracting Holmes with nakedness for this Adler incarnation. She really doesn’t need to.
And that makes two women in this show that Sherlock Holmes considers his intellectual equals. Has Elementary just solved patriarchy?
