Title: Vita Longa
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Rory's life is a romance, but definitely not the one he expected.
Notes: Spoilers through Doctor Who 5.13. This was originally a much shorter fic entitled De Bello Rorii, but my betas said (and rightly so) that it needed more. I'm not sure this is quite what they envisioned. :D

sam_storyteller: (Doctor Who)
Title: De Bello Rorii
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Rufus Atius Ferox remembers two childhoods.
Notes: Spoilers for Doctor Who through 5.12. This is the first version of the story I wrote; my betas commented that it felt incomplete, so I expanded it into Vita Longa (this is very similar to how I treated "Dresser", one of my more popular fics, and I thought it would be interesting this time to preserve and post the early version as well as the completed project). I do recommend reading Vita Longa first -- there are a lot of shared or rearranged sentences between the two, but Vita Longa is the better story.

Rotten Petty Perfect Sexy )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
This is a collection of story-starts and scenes that never went anywhere; they're coherent enough to stand on their own, if not as stories then at least as interesting slices, so I thought I'd turn them out to sparkle. These are all in the PG to PG-13 range; bit of swearing, bit of ass-grabbery, some guns, no porn.
Warnings: Canonical character death (Toshiko).

This is a new incarnation of the Doctor, however, and none of them are prepared for what they find as they unravel the mystery.

In this chapter, there's a visual I couldn't quite capture. When you come across it you'll see why I used this image; that is a genuine Armani blazer-jacket. I thought I might as well make a nice "book cover" for the fic as long as I was showing it off, which is fifty thousand words long and therefore almost the length of a novel.

Warnings: Some discussion of PTSD; extreme gore in later chapters.
Notes: Completed fic, should be posted fairly rapidly over the course of the week -- I'm just getting the later parts beta'd.

Summary: Torchwood is prepared to confront the man who was Professor Arthur Yana, now revealed to be a Time Lord bent on dominating Earth as his first step towards the stars. They have never needed the Doctor's help more than they do now, but the Doctor is in hiding as a human, with only Ross and Rose to protect him from a race of ruthless hunters. Behind the scenes, Edgar and Ellis receive a very surprising visitor, and Edgar makes a decision about his relationship with his head writer.

Rating: PG-13 (mainly for language)
Summary: With the Torchwood and Doctor Who seasons drawing to a close, we find Torchwood crossing dimensions and picking up stray physicists, while the Doctor, Rose, and Ross battle fire monsters in ancient Pompeii. Tosh has some new information to consider after meeting an alternate-universe Owen, and Professor Arthur Yana may be more than he appears...

Chapter Six )
sam_storyteller: (Doctor Who)
Title: Edgar van Scyoc Presents: Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13 (mainly for language)
Summary: Gareth David-Lloyd joins the Doctor Who cast as Ross Jenkins, helping the Doctor rescue displaced hospitals and meeting William Shakespeare while Torchwood battles alien "werewolves" and confronts victims of the Rift. Meanwhile, Edgar van Scyoc shows off his new tattoo -- and Edgar and Ellis must make some hard decisions when their relationship is threatened by the press.

Chapter Five )
sam_storyteller: (Doctor Who)
Title: Edgar van Scyoc Presents: Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13 (mainly for language)
Summary: Torchwood and Doctor Who team up for a three-week crossover series with Dalek invasions, long-lost family, space battles, and plenty of Doctor Who mythology. Meanwhile, Edgar and Ellis attempt to maintain some semblance of a personal life.

Chapter Four )
sam_storyteller: (Doctor Who)
Title: Edgar van Scyoc Presents: Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13 (mainly for language)
Summary: Doctor who, gaining in its reputation as the Scariest Show on Television, brings stories of the first manned lunar landing and creatures who live in the darkness to the television, while Torchwood adapts to a team member without a body and Jack begins to face up to his past with the arrival of Captain John Hart. A Christmas Crossover brings the two shows together, and Edgar and Ellis face up to a few truths of their own.
Author's Notes: The book Ellis Graveworthy reads from is called Recycling Shakespeare, by Charles Marowitz. It was written yea these many years ago, and it is my secret belief that the internet term "wank" originated with someone who had read his works.

Chapter Three )
sam_storyteller: (Doctor Who)
Title: Edgar van Scyoc Presents: Doctor Who

Summary: As Torchwood's Owen Harper weakens and Tosh and Tommy improve relations with USPAT, the Doctor comes up against one of his oldest enemies.

Title: Edgar van Scyoc Presents: Doctor Who (Sequel to Second City Torchwood)
Rating: PG-13 (mainly for language)
Warnings: None.
Summary: The American sci-fi drama Torchwood has been renewed for a second season. Its spinoff show, Doctor Who, is much anticipated by fans and critics alike. Managing the actors and getting scripts out on time is nothing new for executive producer Edgar van Scyoc and head writer Ellis Graveworthy, but their own relationship is evolving as well. Follow along as Torchwood defends Chicago from alien gamblers, mad scientists, tentacle monsters, and other menaces, while the Doctor visits the end of the world, a new New York, and eras of time long-past on Earth.

Rating: PG-13 for language
Summary: In the final sweeping episodes of the season Jack and Tosh are flung backwards in time only to encounter the Doctor, while the rest of the team works frantically to save them -- and then to save themselves from the Rift, thrown wide and producing monsters out of their worst nightmares. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Torchwood creative team still has many obstacles to overcome.

Title: Second City Torchwood, Part I: Episodes 1x01 - 1x07
Rating: PG-13 for language
Summary: When Mayor Daley's special investigation unit, Torchwood, steals Chicago PD Officer Gwen Cooper's crime scene, she decides to find out everything she can about them. But she may get more than she bargained for when Captain Harkness -- who isn't even American! -- sends his errand boy Ian to scare her off.
Author's Notes: This universe is predicated on the idea that neither the original Torchwood nor Doctor Who exist in this universe; it is speculation about how Torchwood would be handled by an American network, albeit an American network with a reasonably intelligent producer at the helm.
Warnings: None.
Credit: A lot of the credit for this belongs to [livejournal.com profile] technosage, who cooked up the original concept with me. I totally stole your twins idea. :D [livejournal.com profile] hija_paloma and [livejournal.com profile] juniper200 and [livejournal.com profile] bluejeans07 all helped me bat ideas around as well.

Page Summary

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
