It's hard to believe it, but July has come and gone! Much easier to believe is the fact that, yet again, we have had a host of really amazing entries. While you can still post fic till it's August (and there's always amnesty in December!), we're posting the masterlist now so that it's even easier to give our authors and artists the kudos they deserve. Thanks, as always, to our tremendous pinch hitters, and to our fantastic comm members - the fact that you all do read and comment is one of the best things about this place. We love you!

Our next challenge will open shortly. Till then, start reading - or get caught up! As usual, you can find all the entries under the challenge: summer holidays 6 tag, or just click here.



Title: No More
Author: [ profile] trobadora
Prompt: #6 - Director, in the Centrum, with a crowbar, in a short-trip mining vessel
Rating: PG
Pairing: Jack Harkness/Eleventh Doctor
Spoilers/warnings: This takes place between The Day of the Doctor and The Time of the Doctor.
Summary: The Doctor had expected a chat, and some flirting, and maybe an adventure, but he hadn't expected this.
A/N: Many thanks to [ profile] wojelah for helping me fix the ending!

No More )
Title: O Eixo
Author: [ profile] wojelah
Rating: G
Prompt: Commander, in enemy territory, with a glass of wine, in a monorail
Spoilers/warnings: None.
A/N: In (probably mangled) Portugese, "o eixo" = the axis, spindle, hub, pivot, center line.

Summary: “Look,” Jack bit out, trying not to feel like he’d been called out in front of the headmaster, “It was a rookie mistake. It was stupid, and an oversight, and in the long run, it doesn’t make a difference.”

Vinho verde, in both the ancient Earth tradition and the revived traditions of O Novo Império, was meant to be drunk young. )
Title: Do What You Must Do
Author: [ profile] wojelah
Rating: G
Prompt: Justice, in a shanty town, with an axe, in a space elevator.
Spoilers/warnings: Assumes knowledge up to the end of Eleven's run, including the anniversary special.
A/N: Title stolen from Brother Cadfael's Penance - "In the end there is nothing to be done but to state clearly what has been done, without shame or regret, and say: Here I am, and this is what I am. Now deal with me as you see fit. That is your right. Mine is to stand by the act, and pay the price. You do what you must do, and pay for it. So in the end all things are simple.”

Summary:The bartender turns around, and the rest of the bar's patrons edge away. The Captain's holding a stout length of wood, banded with iron, the one everyone around here is well aware he keeps under the bar for emergencies. They know what comes next. Actually, it turns out that they don't, because what comes next is that the Captain's eyes widen, a pained look crosses his face, and he drops the shillelagh in favor of rubbing his temples. "Oh no," the Captain says. "No, no, no."

The axe bites into the bar's surface, splitting the carefully polished mahogany a solid six inches on either side. )
Title:The Gambler
Author: Lilithangel
Fandom: Doctor Who (AU)
Characters: Jack, the Doctor (ninth), Rose Tyler
Rating: PG
Spoiler/Warnings: none apply

Summary: In a world where the Hindenburg was filled with helium rather than hydrogen and didn’t explode, and the Wright Brothers were dismissed as flaky inventors, zeppelins still rule the sky and steam engines have been made smaller while being faster and more efficient. A conman meets a man who is more than he appears. Of course nothing may be as it appears.
Prompt 9: Thiefmaster, In a casino, With a two of spades, In a steam-powered subterranean train.

A/N: I didn’t manage to incorporate the two of spades but a steampunk inspired universe snuck up on me and this is what happened.
