A/N: Inspired by this prompt. I’ve changed a few little things from the prompt, AND Rae and Finn don’t know each other yet. I have no idea how long this will be, because it took me a while to write the first chapter. I’m envisioning four parts, maybe? 

Thanks to the Anon who gave me this prompt! I’ve gotten another prompt since I posted this one last night. I promise I’ll mull it over, but I’m not typically the person to approach with prompts. Mainly because I’m already writing two other multi-chapter fics, and can barely keep up with the demand for them, between work and life and everything. But if I pass on it, I’ll offer it up to the fandom. (I think I have a few others way back in the archives I should do that with, too, actually.)

Without further babbling, I’m tagging those of you who expressed an interest (and a few others). If I inadvertently left you off the list and you want to be tagged in future (or if you DON’T want to be tagged) let me know. I won’t be offended if you’re not into this premise. :)

Here goes … 

* * * * *

Rae stepped off the plane and squinted into the blinding mid-day sun. She dragged the round wire-rimmed sunglasses perched on top of her head down to sit on the bridge of her nose and grimaced. Her mother was going to pay for this.

Six days earlier … 

“I literally do not understand. I thought Karim moved to England to get away from Tunisia, but you’ve gone back three bloody times this year! And now you want ME to go?”

Linda placidly margarined her brown bread, set down the knife parallel to the side of the slice and looked up at Rae. “Yes, Rachel. Karim’s father isn’t well, and someone has to help out with the hotel. What are your plans if you stay here in Stamford? Sit holed up in your room listenin’ to Blurry Oasis?”

Rae brought her fingers up to her temples and breathed deeply through her nose. “First of all …” She started to correct her mother, but what would be the point? She just shook her head instead.

“At least this way, you’ll be earning a bit of money. And Tunisia is gorgeous, Rachel. The beaches, the palm trees, the buildings. It’s 30 bloody degrees every bloody day! I wish I could come with you! But, your sister … and I need to go back to the hospital by the end of July.” Linda took a bite of bread and set the slice back down on the plate. Rae knew this was a slimming technique, putting your food or fork down between each bite.

Rae had dodged previous trips to Tunisia: the first one was the impromptu marriage trip, and the other two were during the school year, and she’d stayed over at Chloe’s house. How did her mum think that beaches and sunshine were sufficient inducements? She was fair-skinned and more than fair-sized. She’d be chasing the shade all day.

“I don’t even know how to wait tables! Won’t everyone speak French or Arabic or summat?” 

“The people who visit the hotel are mostly English. Karim’s sister runs the hotel restaurant, and they can never keep enough English-speaking waitresses on hand. You’ll be doing Karim a favor, Rae.”

Rae crossed her arms and huffed. 

“And if you don’t go, I’ll make you get a job here AND force you to change every single nappy your sister produces. I’ll save them up for you, so they’re good and disgusting.” 

Rae rolled her eyes. “Fine! I’ll go!”

“Thank Christ for that!” Linda exclaimed. “Although, you’re probably the first teenage girl in history who had to be convinced to go to Mediterranean for the summer.” She stood up from the table and awkwardly caught Rae’s shoulders in a sort-of three-quarter hug, patting the outside of one of her shoulders. “And I’ll miss ya both, y’know? It’s goin’ to be bloody lonely ‘ere without the two o’ you gettin’ in me hair!”

Rae nodded, leaning into the hug. “I know, Mum.”

Linda returned to her seat for another up and back down again bite. “And it’s good that I trust ya to go, y’know? It was round about this time last year you were comin’ out of hospital.”

Right back to being annoyed. “Yeah,” she said, terse and tense. She was always exasperated by mentions of her hospital stay. It took her right back to her white cinder-block room, group sessions in the game room, and trying to get the independent station from Manchester to come in on the tinny radio in the lounge. It made her remember that she’d spun so far out of control that she couldn’t right herself on her own.

“Well, anyway.” Linda said, allowing herself another bite. “I’d wager you have a better time that you think.”

“Oh, yeah?” Rae asked, jutting her chin out. “How much?”

Linda pursed her lips and looked up in mock contemplation. “Mmmm, let’s say … a Walnut Whip?”

“I only want the Whip, but it’s a deal.” Rae flounced upstairs to start packing.

Back to a tarmac in Tunisia …

Rae and Karim were waiting for their bags to be unloaded from the plane. They had sat in comfortable silence on the journey. Rae had grudgingly grown fond of her step-father, though she still couldn’t understand what he saw in her mother. But now, Karim ventured a soft, “Thank you, Rachel.”

Rae turned to look at him through her dark lenses and nodded. “Don’t thank me yet. I could turn out to be the crappest waitress ever to … wait?” She smiled and Karim smiled back, shaking his head. “You will be … great.” Their smiles widened imperceptibly at the rhyme.

The former chief medical examiner for the City of New York found that Brown was four times in the right arm and two times in the head. The bullets did not appear to have been shot from close range.

Anonymous said: Hi! are you taking prompts? How about some summer love story? Rae is going to Tunisia to help with Karim’s family hotel, Finn is a guest there. She hates going to the beach during the day (obviously) but she loves night walks. One day she meets Finn. Romance and smut all the way. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

Okay, so I’ve been working on this prompt, and it’s definitely going to be a multi-chapter affair, because I’m 5000 words in and they’re just starting to chat. I’m incapable of just dropping straight into the schmoop and the smluff without backstory and explanation and scene-setting, perhaps to my detriment at times. However, Chapter 1 is almost ready to post … look for it soon, Anon! (If you feel like letting me know who you are … I won’t tell anyone! This was just such an interesting prompt!) 

Oooo this is gonna be a good one


I.
five sets of two hands, fingers spread wide
my best friend lying next to me squeaks out
“never have I ever masturbated”
a chortle and a shrug between the boys as they flick down their obligatory fingers
and I can’t help but feel a twinge in my stomach as my pinky follows suit
the silence in the room is thick and grey and suddenly sliced by
“…really?”
yes really.
have you ever experienced fun?

II.
I pull away a hair caught in my scarlet lipstick
in my reflection I see my table mate from english class
behind me she blinks twice and scoffs
“who are you trying to impress?”
the bathroom door is closed behind her before I can ask
the last time she did something to impress herself.

III.
before a trip to the mall
one of my friends spends two hours
perfecting her bronzer
and choosing the perfect pair of shoes
the other rubs in dry shampoo
and is out the door in less than five minutes
they are two of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen.

IV.
my father calls me beautiful through a mouthful of popcorn
as I pour a glass of milk to accompany my now third piece of leftover birthday cake
he plants a kiss on my cheek and I grin as I wipe it away.

V.
she asks me what to do to start loving herself
and I send her away to my full length mirror
and demand to only speak to her
when she’s found something to adore
the way I did with my knobby knees
and tiger-striped hips
and big square teeth
fifteen minutes go by
and she finally points to the freckles on her nose
splits into a grin
the one that makes everyone weak in the knees
and I watch the lightbulb go off above her head
as she realizes
it’s never been her job to hate her body

VI.
i tell my sister she looks cute today
and the look on her boyfriend’s face
when she blurts out “damn right I do!”
is priceless.

VII.
I used to worry that I’d never find someone who loved me at all
and now my biggest fear
is finding someone who can adore me as much as I’ve come to.

I’m trying to prove to my mom that girls can have short hair too!! I want to cut my hair really short, but she says only guys can have their hair short. So she won’t let me get it cut despite what I say!! Please please help me out here and reblog this and spread it, because I would like to prove her wrong.

From what I’ve gathered, Peter Capaldi is a huge fan of Doctor Who that pretended to be a huge Moffat stan until he’d signed an airtight contract, at which point he revealed he hates the direction Moffat was taking the show he loves, plans to systematically undo it to the best of his ability, has been openly mocking and refusing the participate in parts of the script he doesn’t think are true to the character, and insisting that they “won’t chase him off this show,” which is basically saying “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”

I think the new season of Doctor Who is going to be glorious.

I kind of want a show that is just Capaldi on the set of Doctor Who mocking the script and butting heads with Moffat.

Oh my god, I think I may start watching this again.

Oh my God I hope this is true.
