Title: The Way Old Friends Do
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart
Prompt: 060. Drink.
Word Count: 331
Rating: K
Summary: The Doctor would come eventually.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: Inspired by ABBA’s beautiful song of the same name. I heard it set to a fallen Doctor Who actors tribute video, and figured it was appropriate for this fic.

What would he look and act like when he returned?

Title: Bring Him Home
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Third Doctor, Mike Yates, John Benton, Jo Grant
Prompt: 089. Work.
Word Count: 1917
Rating: K
Summary: The Doctor hadn’t been joking when he said it would take time to help Mike come back to himself.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: Seventh story in the Captain No Longer arc. Follows directly after Through the Looking Glass. Also completely ignores Jo’s canon departure/Sarah Jane’s showing up to UNIT. Just…bear with me, okay?

-------

"We can’t change what’s already happened, but we can try to help Mike now."

Title: Abandoned in Place
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
Prompt: 063. Summer.
Word Count: 797
Rating: K
Summary: In which the Brigadier learns the hard way that you can’t always rely on the Doctor.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: Written for mindrobber on Teaspoon, who requested: “Something like how the Brigadier felt about having his Scientific Advisor just up and leave like that after Planet of the Spiders.”

[This is actually set after Robot, when Four takes off with Sarah Jane and Harry, and makes brief references to Terror of the Zygons and the short story Hello, Goodbye, though no knowledge of the two is needed. This also marks my first (and probably only) concession to Four’s era in this set of stories.]


-------

As the battle rages on, it becomes increasingly apparent that he won’t show up.

Title: Angels to Watch Over You (Part 8/Conclusion)
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Third Doctor
Prompt: 079. When?
Word Count: 350
Rating: K
Summary: A mini-series featuring the UNIT Family, and some otherworldly observers. Each story is a standalone one-shot, focusing on one character and one fanfic100prompt.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: I was trying to keep these all between 200-300 words, but this one (slightly) got away from me. The Doctor just wanted to be bigger and better, I suppose. :P

And with that, we’ve reached the end of the ATWOY stories. I hope you all enjoyed reading this little mini-series as much as I enjoyed writing it.

"I was wondering when you might show up."

Characters: Jo Grant, Mike Yates
Prompt: 054. Air.
Word Count: 149
Rating: K
Summary: Their cell was airtight.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: Not entirely happy with this one, but oh well. When your brain comes up with a story idea, you gotta go with it.

Title: Through the Looking Glass
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Mike Yates, John Benton, Third Doctor
Prompt: 072. Fixed.
Word Count: 889
Rating: K
Summary: It had been a year; a very long, difficult year.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my own OCs, should I create any for these stories.
Author’s Note: Sixth story in the Captain No Longer universe. This one was written for jennytork, who requested: “I wanna see what happens when Benton is normal and Mike -- isn’t!!!!” The request was kind of fulfilled in multiple parts, as recovery is a slow process.

Also, I'm no psychiatrist, but 'schitzophreniform disorder' is a very real mental problem, and it seemed to be the closest condition to describe what took place here.


-------

The last thing anyone had expected was for the Trickster to make a sudden appearance.

Summary: The Brigadier needs someone to go undercover at Global Chemicals. Who will it be?
