When my hair was rich and black,
Before I'd broken both my knees,
And snapped my fragile back,
I strolled into a forest,
As cocky as could be
No use in being modest,
The world belonged to me,
But as I walked down dirty path,
I decided then to linger,
For I had felt a wicked heart,
Seen a tall and slender figure,
No man was he, no natural thing
His skull was smooth and white
No mouth or eyes above his chin,
He filled my soul with fright,
His arms grew long like whips and vines,
He wore a suit of black,
I'll remember him for all my time,
There'll be no going back
Who was this demon of the wood,
I didn't care to know,
I backed away from where I stood,
Lest his evil show
But as I walked, so too did he
He matched me pace for pace
And then I turned to bolt and flee,
And thus began our race,
Sweat rolled quickly down my brow,

"Are you a professor?" she asked.
"Of sorts." He wanted to tell her who he was, but he knew he had to let her figure it out for herself. "Just got out of work?"
She sighed. "Yeah, rough day today. People always askin' too much of me. Sometimes I think I ought to quit, go find another job somewhere else
.Why am I telling you this?"
"People seem to do that when I'm around. It's a bad habit of mine." He looked over his shoulder. Amy was looking for him. He hadn't told her what he was doing.
"Well, I ought to get home. Mum and Dad are probably wondering where I'm at, and I really don't want to have Mum callin'."

Pairing: 10-2/Rose, one sided Mickey/Rose
Summary: What happened to Rose when the Doctor didn't exist?
"John!" Rose screams as the world shakes around her. Her husband is at her side in an instant, his eyes wide and terrified, his hair littered with bits of plaster and glass. A window nearby shatters, and they dive to the ground, him partly on top of her to shield her from the flying shards. She flinches involuntarily, turning to look at him, face pale and drawn with exhaustion.
"Rose," he says. "There's nothing I can do
" He swallows.
She wraps her arms around him, holding back a sob. The world shudders, and she can hear the building falling around them. They crawl toward the nearest available table and take refuge as the ceiling rains down around their heads. Nearby, the baby TARDIS is screaming in their minds, and it's more than enough to know what has caused this.
Somehow, the universe is ceasing to exist, and soon it will be their turn to disapp
