This isn’t the biggest haul I’ve ever had, but I’m definitely looking forward to reading these books. Recently, I discovered the newest DC library branch closest to my house, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites (you know we all have our fave branches). It’s a big, glass building and their YA collection is always fully stocked, so I never leave empty handed. Their Book Sale was also great this year, and I was able to find some of the books I read as a child for only $0.50! Also, there were TWO SETS OF HARRY POTTER and I am now kicking myself for not grabbing the hardcover edition of The Sorcerer’s Stone - there’s always next time, right?

Doctor Who Fest Day 6: favorite accessory of the Doctor - Ten’s new floral-themed ties after he lost Rose in Doomsday

Ten’s post-Doomsday switch from geometric neckties to predominantly floral neckties gifset+commentfic (6/?)

His fashion sense was impeccable in this new new body. As brilliant as him, in fact, and he made sure everything was a perfect fit before he’d wear it out—a slim suit for his foxy new build, and the ties—oh the ties! The pattern was sometimes a starburst to match his hair, or blue boxes to match the TARDIS. There was a spiraling whirlwind of possibilities in the patterns that would carry him and Rose running hand in hand anywhere… and everywhere.

After that horrible day he lost her, there wasn’t a whirlwind inside him so much as a void. She was all he could think about, and she was gone… and so when he went to his wardrobe, there was only one pattern that caught his eye. And, well, it was still a perfect fit, wasn’t it? She always had been, after all.
