She clucked her tongue at herself for thinking such complex and confusing thoughts. Rose was staring at her now, in utter disbelief.
"You can't be the Doctor he's a man!"
The Doctor couldn't help chuckling to herself. "Regeneration, Rose. You've seen it in action." She shrugged, sticking her hands inside the pockets of the leather jacket her 9th generation had once worn. "I was pretty surprised to...but you recognize these, don't you?" the Doctor questioned, wriggling her feet in a circle to show the white converse her 10th generation had once donned. Rose looked at them, finally believing that this woman was the man she loved wait what? This was all so confusing.

My name is Rose Tyler. My life was boring until one day a man called the Doctor came into my life. He showed me the world with his blue box. I became his companion and this is the story of how I died.
The void was closing while the Daleks and Cyberman were still going in. A war started because of Torchwood Institute. Torchwood is a company taking alien knowledge and things. They study in the extra terrestrial. They opened up a void, a crack between parallel universes. Daleks and Cyberman came from the parallel universe. The doctor was able to push them in to the void. The doctor sent me to the parallel universe with my mum, dad, and Mickie. The teleportation device worked still so I came back. The doctor gave me a wall magnet and thats how we ended up where we are now.
," HOLD ON ROSE!" The Doctor screamed to me as I held on to the magnet. The force was strong, I would've fallen if it weren't for the magnet. Cyberman and Daleks came pouring in the room straight in to the void. London w

He was shorter, wearing long, baggy clothing, a silly tall hat over a silly head of black hair.
Ben shook his head. He was convinced this man was the Doctor but did he have to look so absurd?
B is for Bored
When he told Zoë he left Gallifrey because he was bored, he told only part of the truth.
What he didn't mention was that the image of his wife's dead, cold body still filled his nightmares.
C is for Crumbs
He actually didn't know why he started saying it. It just became a habit.
D is for Dalek
He was playing trains with his enemies, laughing all the way. Even Jamie joined in, holding on to one of the Pepper Pots. Alpha, Beta, and Omega laughed (a strange noise, actually), saying "Choo-Choo!"
E is for Ecstatic
"Splendid!" the Doctor shouted, clapping his hands and hopping up and down. Polly laughed; despite his age, he could act just like a small child.
F is for Fun

The violinThe ViolinThe violin3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
John's eyes flickered up from his dreary paper as the melodic, sad notes flowed off of Sherlock's violin. Sherlock stood with his back to John, his lean figure elegantly moving in slow, sad circles with his violin outstretched in his arms. The golden morning light curtained around his body, sending long shadows across the room. John felt mesmerised by the he played it with such ease, twisting and turning. The violin sang a sad song, and John almost found himself sad just to hear it.
Sherlock abruptly stopped playing, letting his arm drop and ceasing the song clumsily. John frowned, and quickly had the sense to avert his eyes back to his paper before he turned around.
Sherlock let the violin rest on his neck. He turned slightly towards John his eyes fixed on him as he tried to figure him out.
"John," He began, squinting in the light. "Do you play?"
John frowned. "Instrument wise?"
Sherlock nodded vaguely. He smiled slightly as John met his gaze and lowered his instrument.

Sherlock Holmes's returned to 221B Baker Street after his "death" 5 hours and thirty two minutes ago. And to be honest he didn't expect that reaction from Mrs. Hudson and John. Especially from John. The consulting detective thought Mrs. Hudson would faint and Dr. Watson would punch him in the face. Or somewhere else. But instead of that Sherlock saw his friend with hopeless eyes and the gun in his hand, ready to die.
And that's caused pain. Sharp pain inside Sherlock Holmes's heart. The feeling of constant grief has been living in Sherlock all of these 18 month. 18 month Sherlock Holmes was dead to his best friend. And 18 month he has been solving crimes in China, Japan, New Zealand just not to think about John's sufferings. But every evening, just like Mycroft predicted he watched his Doctor via cameras on Baker Street. There was time when the detective was ruining everythin

"What?!" she yelled from down the corridor.
"Where's my sonic screwdriver?"
"It's in your pocket!"
"I'm not wearing my pocket!"
"Huh?" Rose stuck her head into the Tardis console room and looked around. The Doctor was indeed not wearing his pockets. He was in his shirtsleeves, buried upside down halfway in the Tardis decking as he did something unexplainable to the Tardis. His hand waved vaguely in the direction of his coat and jacket which were thrown over the curved support nearest the door.
Rose rolled her eyes and went to get it for him. "Here." She slapped his screwdriver into his groping hand and crouched down trying to see what he was doing.
"Wonderful. Thank you." He twirled the screwdriver in his hand, took a firm grip, and whacked the butt of it against some recalcitrant piece of machinery above him. Something popped loose with a faint gonging sound. "Hold this for a minute."

The Doctor's Letter.Dear Mr. Slenderman,The Doctor's Letter.4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
We have never met, as I am sure you are aware.
But as of late I have received word from many, many reputable sources that you are being rather a nuisance on the planet Earth and in that general region of the space-time continuum. Now, do not try and deny your presence at the Shadow Proclamation in the Delta Galaxy: you were informed of your limitations, as well as your freedoms and warned to stay at least 11.7 million light years away from the Milky Way, Andromeda and Sagittarius Dwarf and Canis Major Dwarf galaxies- which, I must admit, is talent: I've never had that many Galactic restraining orders in my life! (As a matter of fact, I don't think anyone has except maybe the Daleks. But that's another story) .You are closely related to the Silence in subspecies and abilities: like them , you are little more than a parasite. And a particularly foul parasite at that.

He took a sip, made a face, and spat it out.
He looked mournfully down into his glass. "Elderberry wine. I thought for sure I'd like elderberry!" he wailed, pulling a huge frowny face like a child denied cookies.
River laughed at him and handed him a baguette. "It's not the end of the world, Sweetie."
"But I used to love wine!" he whined. He tore a chunk off the loaf and chewed vengefully, using it to get the taste out of his mouth. He swallowed and waved the rest of the loaf at her. They were dining at a little outdoor cafe in 1860's Paris. People bustled past on their own business, some of them in bustles.
"Maybe your taste buds have changed," River said, delicately spooning up a lovely consommé. A small jaunty hat was perched on her head.

"Hell if I know," the little man rubbed his bald pate. "She came in looking like she wanted to drown her sorrows, and next thing I know she's shooting shit out of my bar!"
The tall man patted him on the shoulder, "I'll see what I can do."
He walked into a smoking rubble of a bar. Tables were turned over, drinks spilled, bottles shattered, glass crunched under foot.
He found her sitting in the corner, back to the wall, a whining gun in one hand, and a half-empty bottle of Tequila in the other. From the evidence on the table it wasn't the first.
"River," he muttered calmingly.
She looked wired, her eyes electric, as dangerous as someone with nothing to lose. She shot at him. The bolt sizzled over his shoulder, close enough that he felt the heat of i

The boy Sherlock lay in his bed. He was snuggled underneath the crinkled white duvet sheet staring at the slicing razors of moonlight that filtered through his blinds, creating scissor-like patterns on the opposite walls, white and precise; a light, so sharp you could cut your finger on it. He puzzled over his alliteration, struggling to gather any more impressive 'a' words to graft onto the end of the frayed sentence. He chewed his lip and peered up at the warped ceiling as a source of inspiration. Up there was a dark, choppy and other-worldly sea where the waves were made of worms and snail shells painted an opaque blue-black, and they writhed and wriggled, hardly moving at all, creating static swirls and stagnant contours.

Punishments appeared to be legal here. Besides they were too deserved and too traditional... It all began quite simply - Rhodie had nearly fallen off the cliff due to her own curiosity. But the mountains they had come to this time were unusual. They had some eerie gravity like in the famous room from Asher's lithograph, so you could walk on the walls and on the ceiling, upside down, there. But the main trick was that jumping on such "specially gravitational" areas was banned or the always-present law of gravity would take its rights...
