This started out as crack and became something else. But it’s still cracky. Crackish. Crackesque.

“So,” says the Doctor with relish, lacing his fingers with hers, “what do you think?”
“Uh…” says Rose.
They’re standing in the muddy lane in front of an old stone farmhouse. An actual farmhouse, on an actual farm. An actual farm that the Doctor has actually bought without actually mentioning it to her first.

- The Doctor’s compassion
- The Doctor’s humility

- Actual consequences from selfish acts ( I know this last one is a bit unfair. But IDGRA.)
So. Take that how you will.
Sometimes, she thinks, when she rolls over to see what the hell happened last night, life can really surprise you in the most wondrous of ways.
She can feel a warmish weight, you see, pressed up against her back, and she’s pretty sure there’s a hand that isn’t hers situated in the rather intimate location that is her upper thigh.
So she rolls over, pushing against the warmish weight until it flops onto its back, and she stares.
She literally lies there and just stares at him, for five whole minutes. She doesn’t think she even blinks that often, she’s so transfixed by the sight.
Abruptly, she shivers, and realises she’s not only got no clothes on, but there’s no sheet or duvet to be seen. She sits up slowly, unwilling to shift too much on the bed in case he wakes up, and peers over the edge. Ah. There’s the duvet. Evidently not needed last night. She suspects they generated enough heat themselves and —
Okay, woah. She really shouldn’t have sat up. Her head’s spinning, now, and as she squeezes her eyes shut to block out the light and fight against the dizzying sensation, she considers that next time it’s her birthday, she will not drink. At all. She opens one eye and sees him again, and decides she wishes she hadn’t drunk at all last night — not only because she then wouldn’t have this stupid god damn hangover, but she’d be able to remember what happened. With him. In her bed.When it Just Happens, lauraxxtennant

Oh, my god, thank you! THE DOCTOR HATES GALLIFREY, AND THE TIME LORDS. ALWAYS HAS. He spent most of his life trying to escape it, so I’m sure that as soon as it’s back, he’ll be unhappy with it. The Time Lords will start sending him on cryptic missions, exiling him and forcing him to regenerate, arresting him, torturing him, trying to execute him, putting him on long, tedious, useless trials-for-his-life…trying to blow up the universe…you know, silly little things like that. That he’s obviously forgotten about…The One Who Forgets indeed.
So you want to write a kissing scene, huh? Well, sit down children and allow me to inform you.
What’s the scene?
If you want this kiss to mean anything, it can’t just be thrown at the readers; it needs to be set up. The scene you set will also set the mood for the kiss. Consider the following:
- Are they alone? Around others?
- Depending on the previous question, what’s the importance of the number of surrounding people?
- Are they standing or sitting?
- What time of day is it?
- Are they at an event?
Closing the distance
Alright, this is a biggie. How do these two get close enough to kiss? There are many ways to do this and each one has its benefits. If the closing is slow and steady, this usually indicates a soft/passionate/unsteady kiss. However, if the closing is fast or sudden, this usually means a hard/assertive kiss (possibly from months/years of romantic or sexual tension).
The five senses
Sight: Sight is probably the easiest of the senses; simply write what is seen. If you write from one character’s point of view, write what they see.
Sound: This could be either background noises or a character’s heart beating or anything else. If the kiss continues, you could possibly include soft moans or other noises if they seem appropriate to your character.
Smell: Describe what your character smells. It could be the way their perfume or cologne smells, or you could describe their natural scent.
Touch: This is an important aspect to describing the kiss. You could choose to describe how the character’s skin feels. Or you could describe how the character’s lips feel against the other character’s.
Taste: Taste has a very broad range and is generally not as easy as it sounds. There are many description words and tastes to use. It is important to the mood what description you choose.
Heads: Most people tilt their head when they kiss. Of course, your kiss does not have to happen this way. Usually when characters do not tilt their head it creates awkward bumping foreheads, which could be what you want if you want an awkward first kiss (these are effective for teen kisses).
Eyes: Eyes open or closed? Open creates either an awkward or tender kiss. While closed creates a passionate or pleasurable or just about anything kiss.
Noses: Noses are invading appendages that get in the way of perfect kissing. Henceforth, no kiss is perfect so don’t write them that way. Noses will always get in the way. Even when your characters tilt their heads, noses can still brush the side of their faces. Now, your characters will probably not notice them (unless they’re the type to notice everything) unless they have an awkward kiss.
Lips: LIPS! You’re writing a kissing scene, of course lips will be important to the description. Are they soft or hard, chapped or smooth, is your character even a good kisser? You could also include if maybe they taste like some kind of food, or if they are wearing chapstick. Lips are important.
Tongues: First kisses usually don’t include tongue; neither do quick kisses. Think about what type of kiss you’re trying to convey
Breathing: Your characters are human (unless they aren’t). They need to breathe. But how has the kiss affected their breathing?
Bodies: Bodies are stupid, messy things that bump and rub and bounce. How are your characters responding to the kiss? Are they pulling closer or pushing away? Are they clenched tight or flowing loosely?
Hands and Arms: During a kiss, hands could be floating in the air (awkward or surprise kiss), or they could be everywhere on the other character’s body at once. Possible places to put hands that are not on the other character’s body could be surfaces near the characters, the character’s own body, or they could just be in the air. But if you’re looking for contact, they could be running their fingers through the other character’s hair, holding the back of their head or neck to keep them close, rubbing their back (or further down), or just wrapping their arms around the other character.
if you need any further reason to watch The Five Doctors Reboot (FDR) they got John Barrowman in it and showed that he was secretly a straight guy with a wife and kids i fucking love Peter Davison
British TV: where three men aged from 62-70 are horrified and shocked - not because they discovered a man is secretly gay - but because they discovered he’s secretly straight.
