What is this strange mist?

It causes me to write in run-on sentences and do you know that it may be a job for this thing?

They make you feel cold and clammy and like you'll never be happy again? That about sums up my reading experience there. And I merely skimmed!

I think I am so greatful for a change from the endless post-Doomsday emo!fic, that I find these merely amusingly bad.

But as I commented in my last post, bashing!fic is rather less detestable when it is this badly written.

Does Reinette do that in the episode or something? Say something nasty to Rose and then pretend she hadn't later? Because I can't see Rose running off to tell the Doctor what nasty Reinette said, but so far that seems to be a strong theme.

No, worse: She snogged the Doctor. And he fell in love with her. That evil bitch, etc.

But someone wanted nasty!Reinette, and wrote a challenge containing that, which I linked to here.

I am strangely drawn to the idea of Reinette using her l33t courtesan skillz to make sure Ten never leaves her out of leavingness, but this is all a bit... yeah.

I think fandom is scared that the Doctor would leave them Rose for Reinette. Emo woes!

It's one of those interestingly dark takes on things that would actually make good reading, but rarely gets done (as the depressing lack of dark Rose/Doctor stuff demonstrates)

It sort of makes me want to be very, very evil and use oppressive Ten/Reinette icons all the time.

Is it just me, or do all these stories make Rose out to be a petty and jealous bitch? It doesn't do much to make me side with Rose.

It's like the Rose Pearse fics, in which the regulars act like such twats that you end up sympathising with people the writers really don't intend.

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I couldn't read the long one, it made my thoughts hurt.

I think the fact that Rose never got any Angsty Time Lord Cock (or even a tonguey kiss) has affected the girlies more than they would perhaps like to admit?
I need to lie down now, I am sads.

Oh yes. Considering the amount of people I saw who were utterly outraged they didn't get an actual kiss before Rose left, or that he never got to say "I love you," there's some great big entitlement issues going on here.

I need to start writing that Reinette fic, methinks.

Curse the plotbunnies! Curse my slow writing skill!

As to the badfic, the remark from Reinette that Rose looks like a clown with that much makeup makes *me* laugh. Obviously the fanbrats have no idea about what fashionable makeup at the French court in the 18th century actually *was*. (White powdered faces, bright and overdone colours to accent all the other features... That remark might as well be reversed.)

Plotbunnies are unpredictable bastards, are they not?

And your comments about the court makeup are making me think of Casanova.
