    Summary

    SHE WAS THE UNIVERSE.

    Written by Artemis Redican.

    Inspired by the music of ‘Ghost Quartet’ by Dave Malloy.

    Essentially, this is a collection of ten short writings inspired by the music and lyrics of ‘Ghost Quartet’ by Dave Malloy. Italicised parts are ones in reference to song lyrics he wrote, whether they be direct quotations or bits fiddled around for my own purpose. The majority of these relate to the 13th Doctor following the events of The Timeless Child reveal – not necessarily a twist I’m best pleased with, but it vibed with the songs, and I really loved writing this. They’re a mix of stand-alone ( For example, I included the Master in one in a blatant deviation from canon ), but in some ways, can be read in sequence. The three others are just some bonus companion tracks, ‘cause I wanted an even 10. I don’t claim for this to be entirely in character, for I realise it spreads fairly away, but hey! I had fun, and this is free. Enjoy! And listen to Ghost Quartet.

    Summary

    Foregoing a pretty summary for this one- this isn’t exactly an AU, but just another time. I really like the idea of lives where Rose tries and fails to get the Bear’s stuff, so this is the first of that. Lack of tags because they aren’t exactly original characters but they aren’t exactly existing ones. Y’all know how GQ works.

    Summary

    “C-can you make such a thing happen?” Eva stammered.
    “Eva, darling--” Isak stood up and flourished a hand, and Eva watched with shock as the flames rose with it, bounding and leaping around the pot, impossibly bright. “There is nothing I can’t accomplish--with the right ingredients, of course.”
    “What ingredients?” Eva asked, breathlessly.
    “To start--” he counted them off on his fingers. “One pot of honey, one piece of stardust, one secret baptism, and a photo of a ghost.”
    Eva’s heart sank with each item he listed. It was impossible, a human couldn’t acquire such items. “Then it is impossible,” she murmured sadly. “I could never collect those things. Not in an entire lifetime.”
    “Maybe not in one, yes,” Isak agreed. “But in many--yes, in many, you could find them all.”
