Title: Marshmallows and Steel
Author: betawho
Rating: PG
Characters: Doctors, River Song
Words: 169

Summary: How does River feel about her husband being many different men? Yet all one man?


She never knew which Doctor she was going to get. Sometimes he was gray haired and cranky, sometimes he was young with a pretty mouth, sometimes he was short and sexy, but all of them, each and every one, were her Sweetie.

In every incarnation, he had a spine of steel, and a soul of marshmallow. Oh, sometimes he hid it better than others. Sometimes he was more daft, or more serious.

But under it all, was always that man who would look at her with such wondering eyes. Not just wondering who she was (although that was fun.) But that gentle, loving wonder that asked how he’d gotten so lucky.

What woman could resist that? In a very large number of respects she was very different to him. He may have been a marshmallow with a spine of steel, but she was steel all the way through.

But have him look at her with those eyes, and she turned into a marshmallow.

And all she wanted was S’more.

Characters: 12th Doctor, River Song
Words: 70

Summary: She'd never seen this face before. But as usual, his timing was lousy.


She knew those eyes.

They were in the wrong face, and the eyes themselves were shaped differently, but she knew that expression.

“Hello Sweetie.”

She reeled. He wasn’t supposed to be here! He was supposed to be safely away, she’d even stolen the Tardis....

Oh God. He’d caught her. He’d been watching while she....

Quick, quick, cover up, distract him.

“You are so doing those roots.”

"Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked;
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?"

How could Peter Piper pick pickled peppers?
You have to pick peppers before they're pickled.
You can't pick pickled peppers.
Peppers are pickled after they're picked.
So Peter Piper couldn't have picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Plain peppers aren't pickled in place.

"I've Got a Crush On You" - (River Song, 11th Doctor)
Tribble at the Door

Title: "I've Got a Crush On You"
Author: betawho
Rating: PG
Characters: 11th Doctor, River Song
Words: 623

Summary: They're in a 1940's Big Band night club, and River's got a surprise for the Doctor. The Doctor's always known River is seductive, but he's never seen her like this...

(Author's Note: This story makes a lot more sense if you know the song, and the context. Here's four videos that show where the idea for the story came from.
1. Here's the song as I first heard it on an episode of Lois and Clark -"I've Got a Crush on You."

2. The original Big Band version of it, with complete orchestra backup, which adds greatly to the song's seduction and sass - "Ella Fitzgerald sings "I've Got a Crush on You"

3. The ultimate image of a 1940's Femme Fatale, Jessica Rabbit Singing in a nightclub.

4. And for anyone who wonders what River's voice would sound like singing, here's Alex Kingston's beautiful sexy voice singing "The Coventry Carol.")

Now imagine River Song, with Alex Kingston's sexy voice, in best Jessica Rabbit mode, singing, "I've Got a Crush on You" to the Doctor.
