Introduction and Postcards

Hello, everyone.  I'm bana05 , a newbie in the Doctor Who fandom.  I'm in America, so I've had to play catch up, but I'm loving the dynamic between Ten and Martha.  I've written two postcards linked below.  I hope you enjoy!

fic: the promise of blue-velvet dark

Several months ago, I managed to surprise even myself when I wrote a bit of Martha-fic for a friend's birthday. Somehow, in spite of my intentions, I never did post over here about it... until now, that is. So yes, I shall cease writing whatever this paragraph is, for fear of rambling too much longer, and simply say I hope you enjoy. ♥

Title: The Promise of Blue-Velvet Dark
Author: builtofsorrow
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Martha; mentions of Ten, Adeola, and vague references to other members of the Jones family.
Spoilers: Spoilery-ish from Army of Ghosts through Smith & Jones.
Summary: 'The stars, the universe, the beyond, they have always been her source of peace, what she returns to when she wavers, when she's uncertain, when she forgets that even the wounds and destruction she'll never be able to fix can yet be beautiful, when she's burning up with the pressure of being Martha Jones, Lover of Broken Things.'

Meta: Martha Jones Is a Dork (Martha's Fic Appeal)

Warning: Disgusting levels of happiness and sunshine and optimism. I don't know what's got into me, because I swear, this is not natural for me. It's just something Martha brings out in me, I suppose.

I keep coming across posts in fandom about how poor the writing for Martha's character really is—posts that I can't not (mostly) agree with. Human Nature/Family of Blood aside, Martha gets jack for character development. Outside of these episodes, most of the character's progress is down to the actors' chemistry, the nuances of their interactions, and vivid fan imaginations. And the most serious complaint, one I can't argue with, is that Martha gets practically nothing in the way of realistic faults, or at least zero exploration of same outside of her complicated feelings for the Doctor.

I can see all of that. I'm fairly observant of writing from a technical perspective; perhaps less so of nonnative mediums like television, but I'm not oblivious. Poor character development in the series does indeed irritate me.

I still fangirl Martha absurdly and want to write endless fic for her.

( So how come I love her so? )

Ok so I profousley apolagise to the mods if this isn't aloud. I di check the rules but couldn't find anything, so just poke me if I am rule breaking.

Hi everyone! I would like to create a comm for Doctor Who Fic Awards, before (and if!) I do create this comm I’d like to ask some questions to those lovely people in the doctor who fandom about the whole idea, and there would be a Martha Jones, Martha/Doctor section of awards (along with these fics being included in the general awards) so I’d love to have YOUR opinions, so please feel free rto answer these questions:

Do you think this is a good idea?

Would this comm be helpful in a sense of recommending some of the best fics in the fandom?

Have you already heard of a comm like this (specifically Doctor Who)?

Would you participate in voting on a comm like this?

Would you be happy if you were nominated/one a award on this comm?

Thank you for your time :D
