Spirit that is Unafraid

In other news, the strawberries are certainly dead, the thing that I thought was spinach might not actually be spinach, the carrots are loving all this rain we’ve been getting, and the potatoes have plans for world domination.

There is something inherently satisfying about reading a new book which references other books and/or authors that you have previously read.

Me and the legendary Paola on harmonies did a cover of “Hoist the Colours” from the Pirates of the Caribbean quad(??)rilogy! I got a request to sing this a long time ago, so here it is fulfilled. Enjoy me hearties. xxx 

HOIST THE COLOURS (From “Pirates of the Caribbean”)

The king and his men
stole the queen from her bed,
and bound her in her bones.
The seas be ours, and by the powers;
where we will, we’ll roam.

Yo ho haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars;
never shall we die.

Now some have died, and some are alive;
and others sail on the sea.
With the keys to the cage
and the devil to pay,
we lay to the fiddler’s green.

Yo ho haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars;
never shall we die.

The bell has been raised
from its watery grave,
hear its sepulchral tone.
A call to all; pay heed the squall,
and turn your sails to home.

Yo ho, haul together,
hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars;
never say we die.

The king and his men
stole the queen from her bed,
and bound her in her bones.
The seas be ours, and by the powers;
where we will; we’ll roam.

Rating: M

Warnings: Adult language and situations. Prostitution. Consensual Voyeurism. Puns.

Summary: Ten/Rose hooker AU. John and Rose are best mates who like to talk shop, but that’s all there is between them. Really.

A/N: When one half of your OTP is Casanova and the other half is Belle de Jour, it’s actually a little surprising that no one has written this fic before. If someone has, I haven’t seen it, so your friendly neighborhood asexual author decided to write smut.


Due to LJ formatting issues that made me want to throw my computer, this fic is only available on FF.net.

It always bugged me that the Ood are indigenous to an arctic area.  You’d think all that exposed flesh would be susceptible to frostbite.  
The obvious solution is tentacle snuggies.
