The bond had been broken, the only thing that kept them close had been lost, thrown in the bin, what was she to do? She was hung up on him, his smell only people around him could smell, lingered with her.
The Doctor was stood at the console, flicking the brightly coloured switches and levers on the panels in front of him. Amy kept trying to drag him away from his pointless poking of buttons, so that she could show him her feelings; but as an adult treating a child seeking attention: he ignored her. It had taken some determination however; to stop himself from turning round and telling her how much he wanted her. If past experience was anything to go by it would all end in tears, so he had to show no emotion. As if ignoring her wasn't enough, she tried a different way of getting into his head; she pushed herself close to him and began to gently breathe down the back of his neck teasing him, tempting him to her.

Run Doctor who -spoilers-Rose used to wonder why the TARDIS sounded like it was crying whenever it left somewhere, but as she broke the kiss to stare at the fading machine, she realized that it was because when the Doctor had to leave, his heart broke just a little. He went where he was needed, where the TARDIS sent him, never encountering the same people twice (except Donna, but there was something bigger going on there). Even with his companions, there came the time for them to leave. Rarely did he see them again, and never for very long. His goodbyes were often fatal, leaving dead behind, through no fault of his own though he blamed himself.Run Doctor who -spoilers-7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The new doctor, her doctor, came to stand beside her and she wondered, what was a doctor without a TARDIS to cry for him? He took her hand gently, laced her fingers through his and smiled.
"Run." He said, and suited action to word, tearing off down the beach, dragging her behind, answering her question. The Doctor without his TARDIS was like a soldier without a gun, dep

When The Doctor first met Sarah Jane in his Third regeneration, he thought she was absolutely perfect in every way.
From the way she smiled to the way she helped him, just thinking of the budding journalist made both his hearts flutter with utter contentment.
Right now, The Doctor was in his Eleventh regeneration and currently dreaming of his Sarah Jane.
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face
The Doctor sighed in his sleep, dreaming of Sarah Jane being in his arms, forever, just her and him, the way it should have been.
I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
This wasn't the first time he'd dreamt about Sarah, he has sometimes dreamt about her when he least expected it.
Sometimes he didn't

"I'm wearing a brown coat, suit and tie with a blue shirt." The Doctor was stood beside the TARDIS console, mobile phone held to his ear. "Jack, what's this about?" His brow furrowed and he looked over at Rose who was watching him from across the room.
She grinned, trying to resist laughing. "What's he saying?"
"Apparently it's important universe saving information." He looked thoroughly unconvinced, speaking into the phone again. "Exactly how is knowing the colour of my underpants going to help you, Jack?"
Her grin widened. "Okay, that's enough, hang up on him."
He didn't seem to be listening. "And you're absolutely sure this is valuable information?"
"Doctor, hang up." Rose walked over to him, reaching for the phone but he turned away.
"And you want to know what Rose is wearing too?" His eyes narrowed.
"Give me that phone!" She grabbed it off him and closed the lid, leaning up to kiss him. "Honestly, for someone so clever you aren't half stupid sometimes."

"This isn't normal." He responded, cryptic as usual as he examined the phone with careful concentration. Before the doctor could inquire what wasn't normal the detective had already started speaking. "This box is made in the 1960s style which makes it at least, what? 42 years? However the paint is at most two years. Of course that could simply mean it is kept in good order but then there's the phone."
"Yes the phone, it isn't working- no... it's never worked. If it had simply been disconnected then there would be no abnormality... but the wires aren't in the right order so it wasn't created to work. There is also the rain, according to reports it only stopped raining roughly an hour ago

The Doctor danced around the TARDIS console, turning taps and jimmying levers.
"Forget ladies in cakes, well, the one you didn't have. Forget enormous fake rude parts and regrettable karaoke. This will be a night to remember!"
His current companion, who looked as though he had been dragged out of bed at four o'clock in the morning, made a pained face. "Doctor, I really don't think this is necessary. Amy and I are already married." He paused in rubbing sleep from his eyes to add, "For about a year and then we had a baby who is now older than us and...married to you -."
"Sort of married to you."
"Nonsense, Rory, this is absolutely necessary. I'll never live with myself knowing I ruined your first one. I mean bursting out in front of your friends and letting out that Amy kissed me terribly embarrassing."

The Doctor glanced up from his cornflakes. A breakfast without interruption an expectation too big?
Sighing, he got up and went slowly to the bath in which the Master had vanished about half an hour ago. What had he done this time?
As he saw the mishap, he couldn't do anything but laugh.
"I just wanted to dye my hair a bit darker again!" What a vain attempt of a defence.
"Green suits you well!" Cackling, the Doctor vanished before the other Time Lord found something to throw at him.

"You want to do what?!"
He came back to the stables where I had been patiently waiting and told me his plans. I could feel the radiation as it ravaged each cell of his body. He was in great pain which I tried to help with but could only do so much. He needed to regenerate but he was holding back and refusing.
"Doctor, do you even realize how many companions you have had in your past?"
"Yes and I want to see how each of them is doing. All I'm asking is for you to help me, TARDIS. You shouldn't have too much trouble. Lock onto their bio-signatures and materialize."
"You're going to hold off your regeneration until I do this, aren't you?"
His silence answered my question. I reluctantly started the procedure by locking on to each bio-signature I could find. My fear was growing with each minute that passed as he held off the regenerative process. We r

He tried to grab the camera from her. "Stop," he laughed.
She shook her head. "Not when you're clearly having so much fun." She took another.
"Give me that," he said, coming behind her and snatching the camera. When Rose protested and came after him, he turned the camera on her.
She gave him a cheeky smile, the one he loved so much, before darting to the other side of the console. "You want more pictures, you'll have to catch me first." With that, she bolted off down one of the hallways.
The Doctor knew it was no use pleading the TARDIS for help catching Rose. The old girl had taken a liking to her from the first moment she stepped inside. Cursing her head start, he chased after her.
He caught sight of her slipping down the corridor that lead to the expansive wardrobe. He was silent when he entered. Frantically, he pawed through racks and racks of clothing from all ov

She grinned. "Kaylee. Kaylee Frye. What's yours?"
"I'm the Doctor."
"Really? We have another doctor on board, maybe you've met him. What are you a doctor of?" She leaned forward, eyes shining.

Rose stopped cold in her tracks. There it was, sitting on the arm of the chair.
The Leather Jacket.
She walked slowly, as if in a trance. Reaching out, she hesitated. She was afraid to touch it, as if it would disappear, just as The Doctor, her Doctor did just a short while ago.
When fingers finally connected with the cool texture, Rose's breath strangled in a sob. She rushed over and grabbed it, holding it close to her body. She collapsed to the floor, the jacket in a bundle in her arms. Memories flashed in her mind as tears slid down her face.
"I could save the world but lose you."
"What use are emotions if you will not save the woman you love?"
"Just another stupid ape."
"Everybody lives, just this once, everybody lives!!"

"Well, the controls get stuck now and then, and it's a rubber hammer, perfectly harmless." The Doctor said with a cheeky grin plastered on his face.
The Master sighed and leaned back against the railing, tapping the hammer against it in a quick, four-beat rhythm. "If you bothered with some basic maintenance this piece of space junk might actually work."
"Oi! Don't diss the TARDIS. She may be old and she may have seen better days but-"the retort was cut short by the rubber hammer whizzing past the Doctors head, close enough to actually mess up his hair. It made a loud clanking noise as it hit the center console a few feet behind the Doctor.
"The bloody TARDIS is dead, and we're stuck on this lousy, uninhabited piece of rock because you're too lazy to clean the god damn thing!"The master took a deep breath, forcing himself to calm down a bit; not that

Just barely managing to save himself from the indignity of slamming his head against the console from surprise the Master grunted a"No, you?" and turned to look at the Doctor.
"There's not enough luck in the universe to make up for six hours of cleaning. You don't even want to know what I found in the extra kitchen " The Doctor made a face. The 'extra' kitchen was in fact meant to be the main kitchen, but since it was about as far from the control room as interdimensionally possible it didn't see much use. In fact none at all for almost 75 years... with the possible exception of what had been growing in one of the cupboards. But at least now that area of the Tardis didn't smell funny anymore, well not much.
The Doctor sighed and sat down on the beaten up jump seat, watching the Master where he was sitting on the floor. "Really, after six hours you're still clueless?"
"No." the Master glared venomously. "I just haven't had any luck with fixing it." He got up from th

"What happened?" asked the Doctor.
"We're being attacked!"
"But, the rest of the Redcoats should be in Inverness by now," said the Doctor.
"Aye," answered the man, "That's where they will have followed the rest of the Highland brigade to."
"Yes. Why didn't you go with them?"
"Some were too wounded to make the journey. Besides, someone had to collect the bodies for proper burial."
"Right. What's your name, incidentally?"

"What is it? What's wrong?" he replied telepathically.
"You remember what happen on the planet Shen Shan with Donna and that Time Beetle from the Trickster's Brigade?"

Ode To Tennant A Rage of Two Fans
Dear David Tennant
We think you're really great
You've killed a lot of Daleks
When they yelled EXTERMINATE
You killed them really quickly
You hit them with your laser beam
They screamed out really loud
When they died in all those scenes
Sorry, did we say laser beam?
We meant to say screwdriver
But we haven't watched it in a while
Cuz you went pedophile
You married your own daughter
And we think that's really gross
You should have come and found us
Instead of fighting Adipose
We even like the captain
We think he's really nice
We liked him in that one scene
We looked at his butt twice
We wish you'd take your clothes off
But we don't think that could be
Because you met some bimbo hooker
That you married off BBC
You met with Donna twice
And for that you're really cool
But you were with Martha once
And for that trip, you're a fool
So listen, Tennant, darling
We tell you this in love
Before we fly back to America

Two pairs of shoes walked alongside each other: a pair of white trainers and a pair of pink high heels. One made a soft padding against the concrete, the other, a rather loud tapping, both in contrast with the other.
The shoes represented their owners, respectively.
The trainers resembled a man, comfortable with his appearance, fashionable, yet older than he looked.
Likewise the bright pink shoes resembled a woman, not afraid to look pretty, innocent, yet bound to have a good time wherever she went.
And so the shoes walked together, side by side, so different, yet so very alike.
