Title: A Matter of Trust (7/7)
Author: Liz/surrexi
Fandom/Pairing: The Vampire Diaries, Damon/Elena
Rating: PG
Spoilers/Universe: Showverse, picks up right at the end of 1x22
Word Count: 2,741 (this chapter)
Summary: In the aftermath of the events on Founder's Day, Elena must decide which Salvatore brother she can really trust.
Notes/Disclaimer: Many thanks to my BFF and beta reader extraordinaire unbrokensky. I own nothing; Mystic Falls and all its occupants belong to the CW and I'm just playing in their sandbox. Final chapter! Sorry for the delay; I started working towards my second degree last week and have been getting back into the swing of things (by which I mean remembering precisely the right balance of procrastination and actual work). I've left myself a lot of room to continue on in this universe; whether or not I do depends largely on (a) school workload and (b) how severely jossed it gets once season two starts, lol. But I felt like I had come to a reasonable, if open-ended, stopping point and I hope you all agree :)

Also, I apologize for my mistake a few days ago in accidentally posting the second chapter friends-locked; I'm not sure how it happened but it certainly wasn't on purpose! If you missed it, chapter two is HERE and is no longer friends-locked.

Damon wishes that the fact that he’s been driving since the car was invented doesn’t mean he never really has to think about it anymore, because he’d rather be concentrating on speed and steering than trying to figure out how to clean up the mess they’ve found themselves in.Collapse )

Some love is just a lie of the soul
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
After you've heard lie upon lie
There can hardly be a question of why
Some love is just a lie of the heart
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can't happen to us
Because it's always been a matter of trust

- "A Matter of Trust" by Billy Joel



Elena smells the blood before she gets to the kitchen, and even as her heart catches in her throat and her stomach sinks to the floor, her mind rebels against the possibilities flashing by at light speed.Collapse )

The Doctor watched, a small smile playing over his lips, as Rose watched the crowd pulsing around them in the busy London square, absently eating chips from a basket in front of her.

“They’ll be by in a minute or so,” he said. She looked at him across the table, her expression holding excitement and worry.

'You’re sure they won’t see us?' she asked.Collapse )

You may be able to detect a slight hint of my bitterness re: the rueful fate of Donna Noble at some point in this chapter, although obviously she herself does not figure in this story at all.

Charley sat on the bench in the other Doctor’s coral-filled console room, watching pensively as the Doctor showed Rose how to assist him with some aspect of flying the TARDIS. There was something about them that made Charley smile – something in the way they moved together, the way they looked at each other. It was clear that neither of them would do nearly as well without the other.

The change in the Doctor from when she’d first seen him in his tattered tuxedo was huge.Collapse )

Rose sank down on to the captain’s bench in the console room with a grateful sigh. Eyes closed, she took a deep breath and steeped herself in the feeling of finally, after the longest year of her life, finally being home. A slight, secretive smile playing across her face, she opened her eyes to find that the Doctor had paused in his preparations at the console to stare at her.

'Feels good to be home,' she said simply.Collapse )

welcome

You've stumbled across Quite Like Hope, the writing journal of Liz (aka surrexi). Most of what you'll find here is fanfiction - generally of the Doctor Who/Torchwood variety - but hopefully eventually she'll get her butt in gear and write some original fic as well.
