Mysterious Ways, part 12 of ?

Title: Mysterious Ways, part 12 of ?
Author: Aenaria/io_aenaria
Character/Pairing: Ten/Rose, Gemma (an OC), with appearances by Jack, Martha, Donna, and a bunch of other OCs
Rating: This part is PG, however rating is more than likely to go up by the end of it...
Summary: The Sonnetsverse reunion. "She's been lost, found the key, unlocked the door to the universe, wandered about, took a detour, stopped, stopped some more, then started again. Now, finally, Rose Tyler is on her way home." Has gone totally AU after 'The Unicorn and the Wasp', so is safe for people avoiding spoilers for the end of s4.
Disclaimer: Alas, no. All I've got is a kitten named Fortuna, but she's not for sale.

a/n: Okay, so Friday morning turned into Friday night, but at least I'm getting this out. :) However...cliffhanger ahead. Major one this time. Good thing I'm posting this from a hotel and not my home so you guys won't be able to find me. I've known exactly what was going to happen in this chapter for nigh on a year now, so I'm rather eager that it's finally out there. Still hiding from you guys after this chapter though, make no mistake! *veg*

Many, many, many thanks to anepidemic and earlgreytea68 for doing especially quick betas on this part. They've helped me out so much, and it's always appreciated. And, as always, to Paige, for putting up with my insane rambles about this. Love ya, hon.

Previous parts of Mysterious Ways and the rest of the Sonnetsverse found here.

Thanks for reading!

Will I ever learn to heed the warnings in the author's notes? I am guessing no, but there is always hope.

I am loving the story so far. I just really want the next chapter. Yesterday, preferably. :)

I gave fair warning that this one was going to be a doozy. *g*

Next chapter is in progress. I can't make any bets as to when I'll have it out, but I am working on it as much as I can. Thanks for reading!

Next time I should put a disclaimer on these things: not responsible for death by cliffhanger. *g*

NEED NEXT CHAPTER. NOW!
You see what you've done? You've reduced me to capslock. And italics! GAH!

Much as I would like to make intelligent commentary on the elegant way you paint a scene, I fear I haven't the brainpower left.

Caps and italics? Oh boy...I may have done something really bad this time... ;)

No intelligent commentary needed - I think I can get the gist of it from the above statement and ensuing ARHGS! Hehe...

Thanks for reading! Glad you liked it. :)

STAIRS! That's basically what I've been chanting this whole chapter. I was like, "Ooh, Rose has a headache. Maybe she'll sit on the stairs and the Doctor will show up." No such luck. "Oh, the Doctor's coming. Maybe Rose is on the stairs." No such luck.

Bugger.

Yeah, the stairs are a bit of a running theme, aren't they? *veg* And yes, that was deliberate, if only because of a theme in a song that always reminds of the reunion (one of these days I should put together that playlist for this story...)

But seriously - next chapter. Your stairs will come. *g*

now this, see, i REALLY like - because it causes me to want to read the ENTIRE story again.

good clifffhanger.

(why, oh WHY do i even START to read WIPs??? i really MUST find a way to no longer torture myself. bad leenah, treating herself so poorly.)

Hehe, I'm glad I can inspire re-readings through this! It's always good to hear that you like the story that much, you know? :)

(Oh, I do NOT like WIPs myself, be assured of that. The only reason I started posting this one as a WIP is because I saw the news that Rose was coming back for s4 which would blow this verse out of the water, and that I also know that I'm not the fastest writer, so that if I had this started and a little bit posted before the season began, I'd feel better for it. So thank you for sticking with it, even through the agony of WIPs :).

Gemma was always going to be the one to put it together - I'm just glad I actually got there in the story! :) Thank you for reading - it's great to hear that you're liking it. I don't know when the next chapter will be out, but I am working on it as much as I can, if that helps. And the next chapter will hopefully make up for the cliffhanger...maybe, if there's not another cliffhanger. *g*

Fantastic as always even if you are cruel to leave it there. Easily one of my favorite whofic series ever. One small request? You had been posting this at Teaspoon and I've been waiting for a new post since November - since none seemed to be forthcoming I just decided to reread the series (even better than I remembered btw) and was frustrated by the final reasurrance that the next chap was with the betas - "With the betas for two months!?" I thought. So noticing your LJ link I was shocked to find 4 more chaps. A nice surprise of course but as Teaspoon is my first port of call everytime I get online I just wanted to beg that when you post the next chap can you pretty please post it there to? This seriously is fantastic work - thanks so much for such an imaginative and well written take on things!

There, I made it without whining and begging for the next chap yesterday even though I want to like everyone else! ;)

Thank you for reading! And you've pointed out one of my big flaws, that I have been neglecting to post this at Teaspoon. It shouldn't take me too long to do so, so let me ask this - do you think it would be better for me to post all four chapters at once there or one every couple of days or so? I'm horrible at figuring out a schedule for posting things, so any help is always appreciated. :)

And seriously, I don't mean to be cruel about this - there's no better place in the chapters to break them off, but the story is all the better for it. :) I'm glad that you are loving it, even though it's driving everyone crazy and making them throw pointy objects at my head for the next chapter. I am working on the next chapter. I don't know when it'll be out, but I'm pushing it as hard as possible. :)

Gaaaah! They're so close! YOU'RE so close! But you haven't written since forever! You should make it up to us by posting the actual REUNION as soon as possible....shall we say..tomorrow? the next day? sometime this month? PLEASE! DESPERATION HAS SET IN! I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER I CAN TAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*ahem* I apologize for my outburst. With all respect: This chapter was of the utmost quality and yet I have a great inclination to read the next chapter so if you'd be so kind as to post it, I would be most greatful.

THANKS!

Thank You!
Hi :-) Just wanted to let you know what a fabulously talented writer you are! Have recently discovered some of the Dr Who fan fic, and has spent the last while reading through your story - oh my gosh!! Well done, the characterisation was brilliant and so believable. Thank you so much for your efforts on this story - sooooooo looking forward to more updates! JM.
