Time Is Nothing by swankkat Time Is Nothing by swankkat
A while back, I'd asked if Sensiblecat wouldn't mind me drawing something from the Doctor's Diary series. She agreed and I went on my merry way.

And then I started reading "The Time Traveller's Wife," which plays an important role in chapter 2... and I think my heart broke all over again.

So... I'm saying that this is inspired by the first two "Doctor's Diary" chapters.

It's a bit different from my usual fare, in that it's... not exactly realism, not exactly cartoony, and definitely not what I had expected to draw when I sat down this week. Funny, the things your hands do.

Writing in the background are quotes from "The Time Traveller's Wife" and are also quoted in chapter 2 of Sensiblecat's "The Doctor's Diary."

How lovely!

I got my sister The Time Traveller's Wife for Christmas a while back and read half of it before ever giving it to her. The premise was fascinating, and I really liked what I read.

I've kinda been put off of Ten/Rose lately (I'm more of an Old Skool fan now anyway, despite David Tennant's hawtness), but this is nice. I really like how Ten and Rose actually LOOK like DT and BP, and I also like how the only parts you shaded was their skin. It gives it a neat quality. :D

It's weird what inspires different people. This particular artwork was done for a friend's fic, and she somehow made certain lines from Time Traveller's Wife work perfectly as dialog of sorts between Ten/Rose. Heartbreaking.

Old Skool is so much fun, I do admit. I'm just a sucker for how much FUN Ten/Rose were for me. They were like... two kids together, enjoying the treats and the tricks the universe has to offer. I'm sure that earns me a place in the "omg you're one of THOSE shippers" category, but ah well. At least I'm having fun while being insane? :D

Thank you so much!

Oh god this is beautiful. The colours are muted and fit the piece perfectly. I love the fact that the only shading there, is on their hands and faces, it works so well. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

you know the time travellers wife was a starting point for doomsday's beach scene. Whats the quote erm...something olong the lines of women waiting by the sea to watch the men the love come back to them. I think its at the end, haven't read it in ages though
