For Booking and Enquiry:
i am Extremely interested in the titles of every single one of your wips but i am actually begging you for details on 'Veega my beloved' because she is also my beloved <3 (🤝 our unity bullshit ❤❤)
Send me a WIP doc title (list here) and I’ll talk about it!
I’ve had “something Leela/Veega” on my fic idea list since Time War 3 came out....but it’s your fault that this fic has skyrocketed to the top of my priorities now, thank you so much for jumping into this sandbox with me <33
Initially I wasn’t sure whose pov I wanted to write from – we know Leela, we know her baggage going into this world and this relationship, and exploring all those internal emotions could be really interesting? But at the same time we don’t know Veega very well and so *insert “It’s Free Real Estate” gif*
So the project evolved from “something Leela/Veega” to “Veega character study” because I realized if I was writing from her pov, I wanted/needed to know what baggage she’s carrying when she meets Leela, and that means this fic has to be about her life and her backstory.
I keep thinking about Unity as the end-of-the-line, a place people end up when they have nowhere else to go (I feel like there’s actually a quote about this but I can’t find it right now so it’s possible I made that up?) So I see Veega’s backstory as one of running, of losing one home and building another and losing that one too. There’s tragedy throughout her life, but she keeps choosing to create a home as much as she can wherever she is, and keeps choosing to love even in this universe that’s tearing itself apart.
And since Veega’s father was a soldier who died in battle (and she references the battle by name when she’s talking to Romana, as if Romana would have heard of it), I see her story as one of running from the Time War specifically – sometimes she’s ahead of it, sometimes it catches up to her and tears at her world.
The fic is going to be structured around that idea of loss and rebuilding – I’ve kind of split it up in my head into the different families she builds throughout her life? So starting off with the family she was born into – her parents, I’ve invented a younger sibling – and seeing where she grew up and what that world and that family was like (I’m thinking maybe she originally grew up on a farm, and so there’s a ‘coming full circle’ narrative with the farm on Unity, and also she’d have certain skills and memories to lean on when she’s starting the farm on Unity later in life?). And then how that world falls apart – the death of her father and something that forces her family to run/scatter in some way (still working on this bit).
For her second family (when she’s a young adult), I have vague ideas for this group of twentysomethings all on their own who become close friends as they’re all thrown into the same work environment or running in the same direction together.....again, a lot of the details of this fic are still tbd. But I think this part is likely to be quite spaceship-based? It’ll depend on what I decide for how she got separated from her mother and sibling and what kind of work she gets involved with (Veega’s work experience/background is something I’m still thinking about).....but if the first part and next part of the fic are very grounded on a particular planet, I like the idea of telling a story here about her finding a home while hopping from place to place – there's never the same ground under her feet, but there are the people she loves around her.
And then we hit Things Get Bad, Round 2. Also very nebulous right now? In general, I don’t want to just kill of or have her get separated from everyone she’s ever loved throughout her life, but she is definitely quite alone by the time she meets Leela so.....yeah it can’t really be a happy backstory?
But I think Rayo’s father is going to be one of the people in that friend group, so there’s some continuity-of-family there? And I can get into the backstory of that relationship, and then how they eventually ended up alone together on Unity. And this is the third family – the two of them setting up this life on the farm, and Veega getting pregnant, and them preparing for this kid who they’re so ready to love and do everything they can to shield from the war.
And then, not long after Rayo is born.....yeah. (This fic really is just me continually ripping the ground out from under Veega’s feet unfortunately, but also that cycle of loss is what I want to explore – particularly because it parallels how Leela keeps losing one home and finding another one, so by the time they meet they’ve both loved and lost so much - but they still choose to love again.)
So Rayo’s father dies, Veega’s alone with baby Rayo on the farm, things are very rough.....and then Leela shows up, injured and alone, running from the city and the slavers she recently escaped from. And I’m going to spend quite a bit of time on this family (of course). The early days: Veega taking Leela in and taking care of her, Leela protecting her and Rayo (if Leela’s way of dealing with grief is throwing herself into a fight, Veega’s is throwing herself into caring for others). Them learning to communicate (bc language barrier – I could handwave it and say the Trell, who must have given Leela the ability to speak the language on that planet in Mother Tongue, left her with that ability – but I want to try exploring the idea of not having a translator?). And the eventual shock of learning that Leela’s from Gallifrey, and processing that (honestly I could write a whole fic just on that, so I’ll probably just touch on it here?). Growing into being a family, falling in love (and I know it’s from Veega’s pov, but I’ll have to at least indirectly touch on Leela’s motherhood-related trauma and initial wariness around Rayo because of it, and Leela’s complicated emotions towards Romana and Narvin and how there isn’t any closure there so it’s hard to let go?)
One thing I haven’t completely decided is the exact relationship backstory I’m going with for Leela and Romana and Narvin in this fic – it’s not something the fic will get into too much, but I’d like to know in my head? But there is a good chance I’ll end up making this fic What We Choose compliant. I want my post-Time War fic to be a WWC ‘verse fic and I want to get into Leela’s grief for Veega in that fic, so it is all nice and convenient if all the fics can co-exist in the same universe, even if the Veega fic won’t formally be part of that series? And I like the idea of there being an overtly romantic backstory there, because then I can explore how not ever ending things with or being able to talk with Romana and Narvin affects Leela re: getting into a relationship with Veega.
I would actually want to explore a different relationship backstory for those three for the Everyone Escapes Unity AU.....but that’s not an active project/as likely to actually get written, so I probably won’t let that factor into things.
And back from that tangent: so eventually, we once again hit the Things Go Wrong times – the raids keep getting worse and worse. The shadow of the Time War is looming.
Veega gets sick.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted this fic to go right up until her death but I think it will – because I want to touch on Romana and Narvin showing up, and how Veega resents them for crashing into her life but also is glad that they’re hear because maybe Leela will have people to lean on after Veega is gone. Maybe, if they get the TARDIS, Leela and Rayo can run when they need to and continue to keep away from the war as long as they can.
Stylistically, this fic’s gonna be along the lines of knock the ice from my bones or leaned in and let it hurt, with shorter scenes spanning a (in this case very) long range of time. It’s in vague outline stage right now – I’ve got this general structure, but I’m in the process of figuring out what scenes I actually want and making actual proper backstory decisions. It has the potential to end up quite long, but I also don’t want to go overboard – there’s a lot of coloring in the lines I could do in future fics, this one is meant to sort of sketch an outline of her life? So I want to make sure I’m being selective with how many and which scenes I’m including, and if they’re each contributing to the thematic through-lines.
So this fic is gonna take a little while, but most definitely watch this space :)

tagged by @sircarolyn (thank you <3) to post four songs I've had on repeat lately!
I should use this as an opportunity to go on about my various Gallifrey interests....alas my Unity family playlist is Shiny and New, so this is gonna be heavily skewed towards them. (in other words......@sircarolyn, no we’re still on our Unity bullshit <3)
1. North by Sleeping at Last
This is The Song for my Veega fic. It’s the warmth and joy in the small moments of life (We'll tell our stories on these walls / Every year, measure how tall), it’s rebuilding your life again and again (With each year, our color fades, slowly, our paint chips away / But we will find the strength and the nerve it takes to repaint and repaint and repaint every day) and continuing to believe in kindness and in love (Let the years we're here be kind / Let our hearts, like doors, open wide), it’s all of my feelings about the power of daring to try to find happiness in the middle of a war (Though the storms will push and pull / We will call this place our home). I am in extreme danger of quoting the entire song, but basically this is the emotional heart of the Unity fic I’m starting to work on.
(And this song is also where Call It Home’s title came from! So it’s also a song for Romana/Leela/Narvin during that relatively peaceful time after Enemy Lines but before the Time War hits, and it definitely captures the vibes of that fic too.)
2. Walk You Home by Karmina
This is a Leela/Veega song!! (Stay here, it's ok to cry / Let me, help you make it right) Two people who are traumatized and grieving in their own ways and leaning on each other to get through the days and slowly building something.....I love them <33 And I just really like this song in general, it’s about the importance of letting ourselves depend on other people and be supported (Even the brave may depend on someone / The moon only shines with the help of the sun / And it's not as safe when your walking alone / I'll walk you home).
3. The Last Snowfall by Vienna Teng
This is a sad Leela/Veega song......(If this were the last slow curling of your fingers in my palm / If this were the last I felt you breathing, how would I carry on?) It’s about the fear and possibility of loss, and so it hurts a lot knowing that Leela does lose Veega. The last verse of this song is about how this isn’t actually the end (This is not the last snowfall, not our last embrace / But if I were that kind of grateful, what would I try to say?), but looking at it in a Leela/Veega context, it gives me a lot of painful feelings about how Veega never actually tells Leela that she’s dying. She keeps telling Leela that everything’s fine (This is not the last snowfall) until it isn’t. And But if I were that kind of grateful, what would I try to say? kills me because Leela never got that moment to say goodbye, but also it does remind me of their last conversation (“You’ve been so good to us over the years.” / “And you have been good to me.”)
4. Forest Fires by Lauren Aquilina
And a new addition to my Romana/Leela playlist! This one really hits my beginning of series 3 painful feelings, when Leela’s throwing herself into the war to cope with her grief (And whilst I watch in silence, you're starting forest fires, you start them just to feel the heat) and Romana’s convinced Leela hates her (You're running with the tigers, you're running just to run from me. / And I don't blame you / Who would wanna be around me?), and they’re both caught in such self-destructive spirals and everything is so so emotionally fraught. :(
