Experimental Science by Corona

'Donna pushes the phone under her chin, talking into the mouth piece with both hands full and it's a bit fiddly but it's not like she isn't used to all that plastic and metal and shiny parts. She's barely concentrating because Melanie's telling her about how woman past a certain age shouldn't wear hot pants and tights without expecting to be mercilessly ribbed for all eternity.' Corona captures Donna's voice perfectly in this bittersweet but ultimately optimistic take on her fate. I wish this were canon

An Inordinate Fondness by Dame Ruth

'"It's like being stuck inside a New Age relaxation video!"' This extended vignette meanders a bit, but with excellent character voices & interesting world building, I'm happy to go along for the ride
