Favourite Characters from the Whoniverse 3/?
↳ Mickey Smith
‘There’s nothing wrong with a van. I once saved the universe with a big yellow truck.’
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS I HAD A TERRIBLE/WONDERFUL THOUGHT
What if this isn’t for the anniversary, but for Matt’s last episode, the Christmas special? And it’s a Ten-type situation where he goes back to look over his old companions…and there’s Martha and Mickey…AND THEIR CHILD. Oh god.
The past couple of days I’ve been uploading some of my old fanmixes from Livejournal onto 8tracks. In alphabetical order, here they are:
Down We Go (Anakin/Padme from outta Star Wars)
I Will Make You Hurt (Harry Osborn from outta Spider-Man)
Leaving Land (Mickey Smith from outta Doctor Who)
She Learned (Rose/Doctor, mostly Rose really, from outta Doctor Who)
Sit Down Next To Me (Ursula from outta Spider-Man)
The Streets Of London (V for Vendetta)
It took ages, I updated the cover art for most of them. Whew.
Anonymous For a doodle request, Mickey holding Martha?
Or Donna and Lee (from the library?)
The Real Smith & Jones: Happy family by day, fighting for the Earth by night.
Here’s to Mickey Smith, who loves with his whole heart and believes. Who when he realized that the woman he loved was in love with another worthy person, put her happiness above his. Mickey who gave up his universe to have a second chance at being the man he thought he should be. And Mickey, who I’m sure loves Martha Jones, the Woman Who Walked The Earth the way she deserves to be loved.
Trapped in a box of tremendous size
It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes!
A fanmix for the people who wanted to Impress Him, and the price they paid; songs for Rose’s tears, Mickey’s anger, Martha’s ill-treatment, Donna’s de-powering, Rory’s lack of faith and Amy’s scream. Their seperate obsessions. And then some.
1. “Do you wanna come with me?”
birdhouse in your soul (they might be giants) I’m your only friend I’m not your only friend but I’m a little glowing friend but really I’m not actually your friend but I am // minimal (pet shop boys) An empty box, an open space, a single thought leaves a trace // i saved the world today (eurythmics) everybody’s happy now the bad thing’s gone away // life on mars (david bowie) her friend is nowhere to be seen as she walks through her sunken dream // view from heaven (yellowcard) I’m sure the view from heaven beats the hell out of mine here // oh my god (the kaiser chiefs) oh my god I can’t believe it I’ve never been this far away from home
2. “Your wish is my command. Just be careful what you wish for.”
don’t fear the reaper (blue oyster cult) she had taken his hand she had become like they are // the sound of silence (simon and garfunkel) people talking without speaking people hearing without listening // scary monsters and super creeps (david bowie) she asked me to stay and I stole her room, she asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind // the court of the crimson king (king crimson) the yellow jester does not play but gently pulls the strings, and smiles as the puppets dance in the court of the crimson king // tryin’ to throw your arms around the world (u2) how far you gonna go before you lose your way back home
3. “You were that close to her once, and now you never even mention her. Why not?”
don’t think you’re the first (the coral) don’t think you’re the first in the whole universe to be untouched by the time, think you’re one of a kind // parasol (tori amos) and then the seated woman with a parasol may be the only one you can’t betray // hypnotist of ladies (they might be giants) never had a pocket watch never counted backwards you won’t remember why you liked him // jar of hearts (christina perri) who do you think you are, running round leaving scars // i’ll forget you (linda eder) I’ll forget you, tomorrow I will turn and let you go
4. “How long are you going to stay with me?” “Forever.”
howl (florence and the machine) if you could only see the beast you made of me // are we human or are we dancers (the killers) will your system be alright when you dream of home tonight // trapped in a box (no doubt) oh this is not enough for a human to grow, trapped in a box // paradise (coldplay) she said oh I know the sun must always set to rise // hotel california (the eagles) you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave
“What We Want” - Mickey/Jackie
(It’s difficult to pick just 500 words, I’d like to know your overall motivation, too. :)) -mlein
Now this one I did for a ficathon, and it was when I was at the height of my Mickey/Jackie (as both brotp and otp, and both together and apart) craze. It just fascinates me the way they came together and brought out the best in each other and became friends after a *very* rocky start, and so this was an attempt to get them into a romantic sort of relationship.
And she’d been telling Shireen he made her feel uncomfortable. Right. Great. So she didn’t even appreciate him, after all they’d been through.
They both end up being sort of driven by the gossip going around the estate- people calling Jackie ‘a bit of a slag’ and making Mickey feel protective of her, and Shireen hating Mickey for being ‘a pervert’. Which I think is partly brought on by the age difference between Mickey/Jackie, and partly because Mickey used to date Jackie’s daughter, and partly because the whole estate is still suspicious of him, poor Mickey.
It would be nice to get one thing right in his life. He wasn’t doing very well so far. Maybe he should get up and go back to the flat.
I don’t think Mickey and Jackie are actually in love or anything in this, they’re just turning to each other for comfort, but that’s enough.
“Oh, Rose. Listen…I think there is a way. We might have to mess around with the timeline a bit, though. Your timeline. A few things might get…undone.”
And then the Doctor bollocks something up and erases the past couple of years.
This bit is really confusing and probably kind of stupid. It was meant to sort of say, no matter what sort of life Jackie and Mickey make for themselves, they’re still stuck being part of a bigger thing and the Doctor is going to crash in and destroy their lives over…and over…and over again.
…Hey, this was written before Season Two even happened! Blimey.
“The Doctor fucks everything up” was kind of a big theme for me in those days. And Mickey and Jackie tended to bear the brunt of those fuck-ups in my fanfics. Poor things…
