FIC: "A Greater Compliment" 1-9/9 
18th-May-2010 08:40 pm
Title: A Greater Compliment
Author: Azar
E-mail: atlanteanazar@gmail.com
Rating: PG
Spoilers: episodes--"Rose", "The Unquiet Dead" and "Aliens of London"/"World War Three" (sortof); audios--Charley's entire arc, including "Blue Forgotten Planet"
Pairing: implied Eight/Charley, Nine/Charley if you *really* squint
Acknowledgments: My fantastic beta readers, hanelissar and biichan, my cheerleader always, debc, and my wonderfully enthusiastic artist, caersmane. I couldn't have done it without you! :-)
Author's Note: This story is not now and never was intended as a slam on Rose. I'd actually meant for Rose - and Jackie and Mickey - to have a larger role than the cameo I wound up with, but discovered that if I was going to take the Doctor and the TARDIS away from her, I couldn't rub it in by keeping her on the periphery of the action. :-( What I wanted to explore was simply how Charley would've done things differently. I wanted to see how the Doctor would have reacted differently to having along someone with whom he already shared a complicated and not always pleasant history, and what the consequences of those changes would be. That said, if there are Rose fans out there who don't want to read it without her, I won't hold it against them. I have a hard time reading stories that write Martha out of season three, too. :-\
Summary: An older, wiser Charley Pollard finds herself reunited with the Doctor while on undercover assignment for UNIT, but this isn't the Doctor she knew, and it'll take more than their shared history to make him trust her this time.

I'm getting an error when I click on the link.

Well, actually, when I click on the link it asks me to confirm that I'm at least 18 years old, and when I click to confirm, *that's* when I get the error.

*Pouts* I'd really like to check this out!

Eep. :-\ Sorry about that. Here are links to the versions I've posted on Teaspoon and AO3 instead--probably best to try the AO3 one first, since I apparently screwed up Chapter 3 on Teaspoon and the fixed chapter hasn't been approved yet. *sheepish grin*


I'd love to hear your thoughts on the story. I'm a big fan of your work, even though you consistently break my Charley-lovin' heart into teeny tiny pieces. ;-) (The end of "What Was Lost in the Eye of the Storm" and...well, *all* of "All Roads Lead to You" so far have me just aching for her. :-) )

Oh, thank you so much for the wonderful compliment! *blushes* I have fans? Or one, anyway?

I will definitely check out the story, but give me a few days - work and kids and RL don't allow me that much time online.
