"Doctor? Are you in here?" Rose said as she walked into the console room.
The Doctor looked over his shoulder while he stood at his console. He smiled warmly and beckoned to her when she came in.
"I'm here. What do you need?" he asked her.
"Just wanted to know what you were doing today," Rose said.
"Well I dunno. What do you wanna do?" the Doctor said.
The Doctor raised his eyebrow.
"Dinosaurs," he repeated.
"Yeah. Let's go kill a T-Rex or one of those velociraptor things," Rose said, sitting down on the jump seat.
"Are you bored?" the Doctor said while she laughed. "I mean REEEEALLY bored? Because it sounds like you're in a mood to challenge death."
"I just want to see you in action," Rose said. "I want to see you take on forty raptors like in Jurassic Park."
"That's wrong, you know. Most of the animals from Jurassic Park were from the Cretaceous period," the Doctor said.

A SuperWhoLock meets Pokemon story.
Summary: In the world of Pokemon, three very unique groups will meet to stop and evil worse than anything they can imagine.
Authors Note: So this will be the 10th Doctor. I really, really wanted to use the 9th, but it wouldn’t match up with the events from Doctor Who. I guess I could’ve made an AU that saving Rose didn’t make 9 regenerate, but I’m already going pretty out there anyway lol. Well, enjoy!
The Doctor was doing karaoke to a Disney sing-along VHS that he had picked up in the early 90’s. Rose didn’t know why he was doing this, but she didn’t know very much about the new Doctor. Well, she didn’t know very much about the old one either, but he wasn’t as zany as this new one. He was more down to Earth or whichever planet they had been on at the time.

Mrs. Hudson frowned as her daytime telly was drowned out by a strange wooshing sound coming from outside her window, unlike anything anything she'd ever heard before. Rising carefully from the couch (her hip was particularly bad today), she shuffled over to the front window to see if she could spy the source of the noise. A long pause, then the noise seemed to reverse itself just as the front door swung open quickly, admitting her boys from 221B. She hadn't seen them this happy and excited since the last big serial murderer case! "Sherlock!" Mrs. Hudson exclaimed, "What have you gotten yourself into?"
"Space and time, Mrs. Hudson!" Sherlock gripped her excitedly around the shoulders as John shed his jacket, shutting the front door behind himself. "We've just been with the Doctor!"
Mrs. Hudson hadn't heard Sherlock mention any other doctor other than John, but this sounded important. "Doctor who, dear?"

Don't blink your eyes, or look away,
Lest you live your life in yesterday.
They turn to stone when them you spy,
And granite wings will never fly.
They'll kill you nice, but you'll be dead,
and all because you turned your head.
So never blink or avert your gaze,
or shortened then will be your days.
Don't blink, don't turn, don't wink an eye,

As I look over at you across the table, I can’t help but feel doubt creeping in from all sides. From the outside, our relationship is wonderful. You tell me that you love me every single day, you buy me flowers every week and you look after me better than I can look after myself. You even brought me to my favourite restaurant this evening as a surprise treat. I couldn’t ask for any more. You are everything I could possibly hope for. But yet, something is not right. A dark voice in the back of my mind keeps whispering: ‘Don’t be so blind’. I can’t help but feel that the interior of our relationship is not as perfect as the polished exterior. Something rotten is fester

Sherlock in the Tardis
John almost walked straight into it. A blue box. Right there in the middle of the street. No one seemed to find it odd and John didn't even seem to have been aware of it, before he crashed his nose into it. Even now, when he finally saw it, he didn't seem all that interested. He scowled at the box for having stood in his way and then walked over to the edge of the street, planning to get a cab.
Sherlock however had lost all interest in the case Lestrade had brought to their attention. Certainly, a severed foot sounded intriguing enough, but there was something about this blue box that was even more interesting than detached limbs.
Sherlock circled it. A police box, as he'd expected. He recognised the old design, though he wasn't sure where his mind had collected that particular piece of useless data. He blamed John, since meeting him, Sherlock's mind was being force fed useless information every day. He had no desire to know who the contestants of
The Writer and His MuseThe Writer lay quietly in his bed. Rest was hard to come by. Vivid images filled his mind, ideas which blinked and twirled in the darkness before fading away, never to be seen again. As always, in the beginning he could control them, but they spiraled out of his grasp and took on lives of their own. He no longer had any say. They simply went where they intended and created their own paths. Slowly he drifted off amidst the stories being told around him. The images slowed, sleep was coming. Soon he was unconscious.The Writer and His Muse2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Ordinary days in this town consisted of you going to work in the Hastings bookstore that was a mere 5 minutes from your apartment, which you shared with your two best friends, Charlie and Jenna. They both went to school in the city that was about fifty miles away from this town, so You was mostly alone until about nine thirty at night.
They didn't return last night at all, and you woke up on the living room sofa alone, the television still on. This wasn't unusual behaviour; their parents lived in the aforementioned city, but they'd always called before they spent the night anywhere, because they knew how anxious you got when you knew something was amiss.
But, they hadn't texted, nor had they called, which was very uncharacteristic of them.

The Once-ler's smile didn't waver as he glanced from his latest invention to the foot-and-a-half high ball of fluff that called itself the Lorax. "D'ya like it?" He chirped as he propped his hammer against his shoulder, speaking over a shrill squeal of glee from a hummingfish. "It's my latest invention!"
He received a scowl for his trouble, the Lorax's blue eyes narrowing to irritated slits and nearing vanishing in a veritable forest of orange. "I can see that, Einstein," the creature drawled as he stomped his way across the griffle grass, gaze flicking from the crowd of animals swarming the area to the culprit.

The ABC's of Doctor WhoAngels, as a general rule, cause more harm than good.The ABC's of Doctor Who4 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
Bananas (unlike pears) are good; always bring one to parties.
Count the shadows.
Evil comes in many degrees and packages.
Feel down? Don't use a "Bliss" patch.
Go for the eye(stalks).
Hospitals are bad; avoid whenever possible.
If you're confused about something, don't be afraid to ask questions; fear the answers.
Just smile and nod if the Doctor asks you something you don't understand.
Killing is not (always) the answer.
Life is an adventure, a challenge, a game, and a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference.
Mysteries are made to be solved; dive in headfirst!
Never trust a cat, nun, nurse, or combination of the three.
Options exist for everything, just be sure to take the best one.
Place your faith in only complete strangers and those you can trust.
Quit while you're ahead; it'll all be down

"If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?" he asked, and you pondered on this for a moment. It was a hard question, that was for sure.
There were so many places in the world to go! How could you possibly choose one? "Well," You began, deciding on voicing this opinion to him, "I don't know. I want to go to so many places-- I can't possibly just choose one. I would love to go to China, and see the Great Wall. But, at the same time, London and Big Ben call out to me."
You shake your head, and giggle softly, "But I guess that's just me. I've always wanted to travel places, but my parents never really had the money. So I would read about other places. I guess that's why I work in a bookstore now," You said, "They let me read books when I'm not working."

This isn't just about my stupid ego.
I'd just like you to tell me,
That I make your blood boil
By my gaze's heat.
That I make your heart hatch
Like a crimson rose.
That your brain overheats
Picturing my body curves.
I'd just like you to show me,
From the air I breath out
How your lungs have healed.
From the sunshine of my smile
The toughness of your bones.
From the embracement of your arms
That I'll be safe from everything.
I'd just like you to make me dream awake,
By your voice's melody.
But it tore me inside
Not to know
If you have ever felt this way.
Thus I'll keep tracking you down
Following your shadow everytime
Hidden in the dark street corner
Until you finally dare looking at me.

the rays of the sun wrap around all
the air is warm and full of emotions
The journey has been long
not always one of the best
we have seen many shadows
but this has taught us so much
How to be more mature
how to be more childish
how to be more human
We have learned to seize the moment
and even some unusual recipe
we have learned to believe
we have learned to distrust
We grew up together in that light
that now shines high
we enjoyed every frame
in the first and in the last moment
we laughed and cried
in the last hour of the morning
The journey has been long
and has now reached its last stroke
but we can never forget
that it was the eleventh hour
which brought the sun to its highest point.

Plains of long, golden grass lay before her, stretching out as far as she could see, and in the distance she spotted glittering peaks reaching upwards to touch the sky. The mountains seemed to glow and shimmer, and as she watched in bewilderment she realized that they were reflecting the sunlight. Giving an excited grin, she stepped out of the TARDIS, slowly lowering a bare foot to the ground, and felt a surge of delight as warm, tan-coloured soil slipped between her toes.
She closed the TARDIS' doors behind her and beamed, suddenly feeling aware of the empty space beside her. She rarely left the TARDIS without the Doctor at her side, and while she loved traveling with him, Donna reveled in this feeling; the sheer nervousness and excitement of stepping out on to an alien planet by herself.

We saw them pile on top of each other, felt their collective weight tugging on the plastic.

The Doctor, and he knew this from experience, could be an idiot sometimes, especially when it came to something like crossing the Void. Donna was simply a distraction and soon she'd be gone and then it would begin.
The Doctor looked at the screen, numbers and calculations flew past unnoticed as he thought about Donna. He hadn't really wanted her to to travel with him but he had offered anyways, force of habit really. But now he was alone again and right now alone was dangerous, alone meant thoughts that had been thrust aside would come creeping back and start whispering in his head, alone meant dealing with dealing with things that he didn't want to deal with, alone meant thinking of Rose.
