Summary: He couldn’t go to any of them; he was trapped in Earth’s schedule.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: Written back in September; I am working on more new ones, though, as I've almost exhausted my Finished Fic stash.

Set before Colony in Space. Ends a little soppy and maybe a little OOC, but that’s where my brain took this.

Title: Haircut
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Mike Yates
Prompt: 039. Taste.

Author’s Note: Fun fact - The summary was my original concept for this story.

Does it bother him?

Title: Out of the Deep

Rating: K
Summary: “But you’ve got the wrong person!”

Richard Michaels certainly hadn’t planned on being kidnapped by who he assumed was a madman.
