    Summary

    “If you were in the same room, if you could talk to your past self – do you think he’d recognise you? As you are now?”

    The smile faded away from Jamie’s face – but she couldn’t see if he was sad, or cross, or just thoughtful. “That’s the thing about travellin’ in the TARDIS,” he said at last. Just thoughtful, then, from the distant note in his voice. He shuffled against the floor, tilting his head back to stare up at the crack in the ceiling. A little quilt-patch of pale blue amongst the darkness. “It changes you. Everything ye do, everything ye see, all the things that happen to ye – ye cannae be the same afterwards.”

    Biting her lip, she glanced away from the sky. “I wonder how long it will take. Before I’m – well, different.”

    Even with her face turned away from him, she could feel his eyes on her. Sizing her up, and finding God knew what. “I think ye already are.”

    Travelling in the TARDIS leaves all kinds of scars - some brief, some lasting, some healed, and some raw.

    30 short fics for Summer of Whump.

    Summary

    "'bout time, if you ask me."

    The Doctor looked properly offended at that, but he was still blushing up to his ears. "I beg your pardon?"

    "You and Jamie, I mean. Guess he finally took my advice." He guessed wrong, if the Doctor assumed correctly what his advice was, but somehow he got the impression Ben wasn't after specifics. "Thought you two would never spit it out. Strewth, you should hear him when he's drunk. If I had to hear about your bloody eyes one more time I was gonna pick him up n' throw him in the pool."

    "Well, that's not very nice, Ben," he responded flatly. "He can't swim."

    "I know."

    The morning after the Doctor and Jamie spend their first night together, Ben and Polly realise they didn't know how good they had it.

    Summary

    "I'm not afraid of not waking up ever again. I'm afraid of waking up only to find that all this isn't real"

    In her universe she wasn't anything special.

    Just another mutant trying to survive in a world that despises them. A lover of sci-fi and music. A person on the run from Hydra. In her universe there were thousands of people like her.

    But things change.

    Especially when you suddenly jump from one universe to another.

    Summary

    “Settle down,” he said, regretting it only after the words left his mouth. Suppose this was just the Doctor’s way of getting to sleep. But he froze at the sound of Jamie’s voice, eyes almost luminous beneath the angular shadows of the crumpled bedcovers. “I don’t bite or anythin’.”

    “I know you don’t bite,” the Doctor muttered. But a moment later he sighed, almost shrinking down into the mattress. “My people, ah – don’t make a habit of sleeping. And certainly not communally.”

    Jamie grinned again at that. “Mine do.”

    In the shadows, he caught a faint glimpse of the Doctor raising his eyebrows, his mouth tightening into a wry smile. “So I gathered.”

    Five times Jamie wondered why he woke up alone, and one time he knew.

    Summary

    The Doctor's usually fairly adept in hiding their less-than-humanoid body parts from their human companions. Their feelers and scythes and wings stay where they belong, in the higher dimensions and the Vortex, and their friends never have cause to suspect that they're anything more than just another humanoid alien.

    When they regenerate, however, things tend to slip somewhat.

    (A series of ficlets about each of the Doctor's regenerations, in a world where that process bears a significant resemblance to an insect shedding its exoskeleton.)

    Summary

    “They’ll be alright.” Out of everything Jamie had said, that was the one thing he could really, truly say with any confidence. “They’ve got each other.”

    “Yes. Yes, they do.” Closing his eyes, the Doctor drew in a deep breath. “But seeing them like that -”

    “Aye.” That was another image pressing at the edges of Jamie’s mind, searing itself into the backs of his eyelids. Polly half-collapsed in the hospital’s doorway, Ben bloodied and dirtied and unconscious in her arms. “I mean – if that were us – if it were you...”

    In a city under siege, Ben lies unconscious in hospital. The Doctor, Jamie, and Polly keep watch while he sleeps.

    Summary

    If she wants to spend a pleasant Saturday morning with her friend at the market, she will; relationship status be damned. So she shouldn’t be surprised, all things considered.

    And yet, when she sees him just a few steps away, cigarette on his lips and denim jacket around his shoulders, her heart falls through the ground. Ben Jackson, half leaning against a bin outside a closed pub, laughing like there’s nothing wrong.

    Summary

    “Was it worth it?” she asked eventually. “Coming with us. Even if it wasn’t for very long.”

    Worth it was an odd way of putting it. Worth what? A terrible, scrambling, airless death at the end of a tunnel, instead of a terrible, scrambling, airless death at the end of a rope?

    Jamie and Polly take a rest while climbing out of Atlantis, and wonder if they'll ever make it out.

    Summary

    She knew a bit about things not being mutual, herself. And it certainly didn’t look like – that. The Doctor picking up a bowl of some little snacks and holding one out for Jamie to eat from his hand. She’d never seen he doesn’t feel the same way look like that.

    “Here.” Ben held his glass out to her, and she took it more out of reflex than anything. “Want some?”

    “Oh, why not.” Levering his glass in towards her chest, she held her own out to him. “Swap you.”

    Hoping that a stint under the mistletoe will prompt the Doctor and Jamie to confess their feelings for one another, Polly buys tickets to a party.

    Summary

    “I don’t want to go back,” she said, so softly he almost missed it. “We can’t go back. Things have changed.” He had heard that from her so many times. Often enough that it set his heart pounding and his blood rushing in anticipation of what was coming next. But when he opened his mouth to argue, she pressed her fingers over his lips. “I know what you’re going to say,” she said hurriedly. “That I haven’t been myself. I know I haven’t. But trying to be like we were before won’t work, either. We have to be something else. Something new.”

    Returned to Earth after their travels with the Doctor, Ben and Polly struggle to find themselves, and each other.

    Summary

    There was something unnerving about how still he was. If he had’ve been shaking with sobs, or his voice thick with unshed tears – well, then she might have known what to do, how to comfort him. But it must all have been coming out in the way his hands were roaming about restlessly. The calmness of the rest of him, the quiet, hollow resignation… She could do nothing with that.

    Polly searches for Jamie, and finds him commemorating a secret anniversary.
