The Pandorica ClosesUnfortunately, that was the truth. Staring at the Pandorica, the one thing that he didn't know in the universe, the one thing that had followed him and haunted him throughout this incarnation, the something that could very well end the world in less than a second, he had told River and Amy about the terrible thing. It was just a legend, cast out into time and space. He'd heard bits and pieces, scary stories like the Toclafane to stun the children of Gallifrey into obedience. But for that split moment there was a hesitation in his mind. Because it was all falling into place. And for a split moment there he thought he himself was going to end the world.The Pandorica Closes5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
There was a goblin or a trickster or a warrior.
Because that's how it always is, isn't it? The Doctor comes in, he fixes everything, but he leaves a trail of bread crumbs in his wake. Bread crumbs that could be debris of falling buildings, or the rotting smell of corpses.

Made of nothing in the black
I was the girl who waited
And you finally came back for me
Now down the rabbit-hole I'm falling
Ur hand reaching out for mine
If I don't grab hold of you first
Let's run through time and space
Ginger hair and bow ties
Laughter and kindness
Traps and love
The blue box, a whole new look
And a whole universe to explore
It's like a fairy tale
That I almost let it go
And stopped dreaming
Is at the back of my mind
Like the wedding dress
Hanging in my closet door
The toys lying on the dresser
I want to lay back and close my eyes
But wait, is this the dream?
Beyond the graffiti on the oldest wall
The "hello sweetie" smiling under
The angels descend upon us
One must play blind
So as not to be seen.
And the trap is set
But what is a trap
But a snap of a finger and comfy chairs
Doctor, who makes people better
You let me choose, when I wanted
To give up love for a taste
At the impossible
And I saw again that smile

RvBFic - Tex and SargeWhen Tex's alien captors took her in, they had no idea she was in possession of the most malicious and aggressive AI construct known to man, and when she and Sarge were tossed unarmed into a remotely-monitored prison cell halfway up a forty story tower, they had no idea how close they were to their own destruction.RvBFic - Tex and Sarge5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Tex, it's been a long time..."
Tex had all her attention focused on the metal walkway just outside the confines of their cell. Sarge was busy somewhere beyond her field of vision but all she cared about was trying to ignore the Omega AI. For the most part it was working but still couldn't stop him from taking intense pleasure in insulting her strength and intelligence. Her head was full of maniacal laughter.
"We can break out of here, Tex, you know that." Omega chuckled, "we can take down this tower and use the network to bypass all the major firewalls shooting off into space to take command of their ships and bring th
Her Imaginary FriendThe blood seeped through her thin clothes, staining them a lush scarlet and blossoming like a flower across her stomach, chest and dripping down to her slim waist. Her skin and eyes had been drained of colour and her breaths were short and panicky. Sweat, both old drops and new ones lined her brow and the palms of her hands as she lay in the dirt, immobile and trembling; unable to move for the white hot pain that sliced through her veins.Her Imaginary Friend4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"H help me," she gasped to whoever would listen. She couldn't scream; it was too painful.
Where was he?
Whenever she needed him, he was always there. He was her hero. Her imaginary friend.
Tears began to glue her eyelashes together and the searing agony had turned into a dull ache, like a raw bruise that spanned her entire body. All he'd done was ask her to wait for him, 'Just, hold on! I'll be seconds!

As she walked, she thought about what had happened. About the nightmarish dreams, and the way she'd felt when Rory had died, had left her- and she'd realized if she ever returned to normalcy she'd be left alone.
Maybe that was love- knowing your life would be empty without that person. But then, she couldn't see living in Leadworth as a real life anyway
And the Doctor- how much did he really detest himself? How much and, Amy paused as another thought occurred to her. All those hints .all those suggestions .did the Doctor, care about her?
Amy froze completely, her foot in the air. "How could he have felt?" Her voice was barely a whisper, and she felt her heart stutter nervously. Because truly, how could he have felt? Alone, when they woke up, in the cold and dark.

How long does it take to get a half-delirious Phyrigisian onto a stretcher, anyway?
Her eyes became laced with frustration at the thought, and every inch of her body seemed to tense even more. Once again, she had taken on the look of a bounty hunter; without fear, without regret. At that moment, she was back to being able to freeze the heart of a non-hunter with a glance, and melt the confidence of an underprepared enemy. Only, this time her sole focus was not on destruction. Rather, for once she was set on the preservation of a life other than her own. Though the life of a hunter and the emotions of a no

Gradually the vise squeezing his brain subsided and he could focus once more. He slowly cracked one eye open and squinted even in the dim lighting. Sounds came rushing in at him. The roar of machinery was deafening. In an attempt to alleviate the tension that had begun to build in his head, he moved to massage the feeling away only to find that his hands would not comply with the order. Confused, he blinked rapidly to clear his vision before focusing once again on the immobile limbs. He tried to move but found that he could not. He shook away the last remnan
RvB: Death CallsSpace. The openness had always brought thousands of possibilities with it. Now all he could see was the prospect of death. The ship had become one large coffin. It had already begun to fill with the dead. He turned from the vacuum and sighted in on the door across the room. The moaning and fists pounding echoed through the steel door. The barrier had lasted for the moment, but even now York could see that it would not hold much longer. Then, nothing would separate them from the teeming horde of undead. Even the name 'undead' still gave him pause. It was not a word that he had ever thought would be used in an actual situation.RvB: Death Calls3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

Remembering NobleIt wasn't an impending air raid, but it sure sounded like one. The girl moaned and rolled over in her bed, her eyes fluttering open unwillingly. She tried to reach for her alarm clock, but got tangled in her sheets and, in the ensuing struggle to get free, fell out of bed, taking her covers with her. She landed in a heap on the floor and made an "oof" sound, then extricated herself awkwardly and staggered to her feet, finally able to turn the hated device off.Remembering Noble4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was 6:00 in the morning, still a bit dark outside. The girl drew in a hasty breath as the chilly morning air nipped at her bare toes. She immediately attacked her chest of drawers, pulling out a black and yellow jogging suit and a black tank top, which she put on hastily. She glanced in the mirror and went over to her cabinet, where she took out a jar of hair gel and slicked back her short, wavy auburn hair. This done, she went back to the bureau and put on some socks, then running shoes. Then she exited her room, l

Washington hadn't watched her sleep often, but he knew enough to tell by the subtle twitch of her hand, the way her lips curved up in an almost smile, the soft words she subconsciously whispered, too low for his ears to pick up. She wasn't screaming or crying or curled into herself, clutching her skull, like she had so often since the project. It wasn't a nightmare.
Carolina was having a dream.
But they needed to get moving. The Reds and Blues would be awake soon, and they couldn't stay in the small safe house she had led them to for much longer. Wash stood in the doorway of the small room, wondering how to go about waking her up. At best, he'd get a glare and sharp complaint. At worst, he'd have a gun pointed at his head.
Deciding to take the chance he made his way over to Carolina's makeshift bed. One of her arms was curled under the pillow, her fiery red hair falling across her face and spilling onto the sheets. Wash tentatively reached out and placed a hand on her

As Lucario enters the base, he can clearly hear the heated argument between Abra and Carlos from Team Legend.
"Look, getting a pirate to give you something isn't as simple as asking politely," Carlos says defensively, pointing a claw at the black fox-like Pokemon. "We spent days trying to convince him and he still refused!"
"Then you should have just fought him for it," Abra responds, crossing his arms. "Maybe you could have beat him in a fight instead of abandoning your mission."

Tex walked down the stairs of her home. It felt odd without Alessa around anymore. Her pictures still hung on the walls. Alessa had moved out years ago. The picture of Alessa and Alex's wedding from seventeen years ago hung beside a smiling image of their then three-year-old daughter. It amazed Tex that Alana was already thirteen. Tex really was getting old.
Tex moved into the kitchen and took a deep breath, inhaling the scent of coffee. She didn't remember making coffee. She sat down at the table and opened her eyes to find a mug sitting on the table in front of her.

That is his first realization upon regaining consciousness.
His eyes close, open again. Half-lidded and shrouded by a visor scratched from battle, they strain to keep themselves from shutting once more, from letting the blackness become his consciousness. He coughs, then winces as the action causes his ribs to shake and shudder, damaging himself further.
'Ugh, I can't...'
Can't what? Vague memories float back to him, still too out of focus to be of much use. Memories... Yes, that's important, he recalls. For some reason, that word sticks in his mind. Memory...
He can feel the warmth in his fingertips draining out into the white snow. Slowly, he lifts them towards his chest, vision hazy. One moment, clear. The next, blurred confusion. Is this insanity, he wonders? Or is he just dead?

Even though he was alive, Amelia had nightmares for weeks.
She would wake up in the middle of the night, dry sobs wracking her body that woke Rory before she even became concious and he would hold her, silently stroking her hair because he knew why she was crying and that there was nothing he could say that would make it better.
Because he was 909, and had only 194 years left to live.
And no matter how Amy tried to think about it, one thousand, one hundered and three years was not a fraction of enough time for such a man as the Doctor to be alive.
Amy would watch him fall, and no matter how she struggled she couldn't get to him in time. Sometimes it would be River and Rory holding her back, just like before, but sometimes it would be a faceless force, a nameless evil keeping her from her raggedy Doctor as he breathed his last. Sometimes she would watch him go towards the astronaut, like a gentle lamb to the slaughter and she would shout for him to stop, to come back, but the words woul

The nightmare had really spooked him. He took a quick glance around the room, realizing that he was now in his bed. Taking a heavy sigh of relief, Yakko plopped back into his mattress, slowly closing his eyes and tried to go back to sleep.

The most fetching scent since ghost nip!
Their senses no longer picked up the scent of a newborn. White had been replaced with black, pale had been substituted with tan. The abrupt change was hard to not see. If not for observing the transformation right in front of their own eyes they'd never have known the seemingly average human boy was the newborn they'd been tracking aimlessly. What's more was the boy wasn't just another hybrid oh no he was the son of Danny Phantom the most unique halfa in existence, and a thorn in the foot or tail of many ghosts.
The dragon Aragon withdrew his talons from his prize taking flight to circle aimlessly around the unconscious boy. His expression though hard to make sense of in his reptilian form seemed to show shock, and mild confusion.

The light of Durin’s Day, a map and a key,
Would open the door of the home it used to be.
The dwarves of Erebor,

Thus the hobbit said goodbye.

And at the Grey Havens,
There came an end to Frodo’s tale.

And thus The Hunger Games began.
