"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.

He could already feel that sting, that need to lower one's eyelids just for a moment, but his heart quickened and he willed himself not to give in. He felt the rough surface, the cold crumbling scrape of stone against his shoulder blades beneath the material of his clothes and yet he still tried to push further back, almost as though he could will himself to pass through the wall and out of the path of that slow creeping danger.Angels -Prologue- APH-WHO5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
There was a flurry of pale magenta and silver light, a gentle sound like that of beating dragonfly wings from off to his left. He could just make out the shape of a small male fairy on it's way from the inside of his house to some unknown parts of his backyard.

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
Don't BlinkDon't let the angels touch your flesh,Don't Blink4 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
or you will live an old life fresh.
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,
when'ere you see an angel cry.

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 Tolling of NoonThe morning comes to an endThe Tolling of Noon2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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.

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. "That don't mean I can tell what it is."
The Once-ler gave a breathless laugh at this, tugging absently at his shirt collar in an attempt to get some sort of breeze through. The heat here was usually comfortable, but it wasn't really made for actually doing anything in. "Why, it's a waterslide of course!" Here he gestu

Instinctively, she nestled into him, resting her head on his chest. He knew he shouldn't, but he liked the feel of her hair tickling his chest and her bare arm draped over him. She didn't seem to mind either, but he attributed that to her tiredness.
This cuddling felt natural, something that happened after a particularly harrowing adventure. He wrapped his arms around her, gentle but fiercely protective. She shifted restlessly, and he brushed her hair off her face. "Rose? Are you okay?"
"Just needed to hear your hearts," she mumbled back. "To make sure you were still here."
She nodded into him.
He squeezed her tighter. "I'll always be okay as long as I have you."

It flew away. Again. Bob had tried to catch butterflies for about an hour or so, but he just couldn't manage to catch one. He was only 15 years old, and he looked like he was a kid by being trying to catch one of those beautiful insects on the wide football soccer field of his high school. Classes were over half hour before he started his task of trying to catch a butterfly, and it was just because his best friend, Ray, who was also the guy Bob had a crush on, challenged to do it.
Ray was a slightly, slightly taller guy, with a 'fro of brown curls. That day he was wearing a simple Iron Maiden t-shirt and jeans, while Bob had a black t-shirt, a black wristband on each wrist, and his usual dark jeans. Even though the day was sunny, the wind was cold and Bob still couldn't catch a single butterfly. Bob was around some tall grass by the end of the field, where the butterflies were, while Ray watched him from the bleachers at a side.
Bob got on his ankles, seeing the butterfly that w

"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."

"Why do you want to know it?" he replied with a questionmark above his head.
"...I´m just curious."
"Ok... well, I don´t really believe in them. No one ever saw an angel and there´s no proof that they exist. You know, I´m a scientist. I just "believe" in something which can be proofed" Sherlock explained.
John didn´t answer, he just nodded and continued to write his blog.
Four years later, Sherlock DID believe in one angel - the one named John.
John wasn´t in the flat, so Sherlock was able to prepare everything.
The flat was tidied up and clean. Like, REALLY clean. The living room was decorated with some candles with wine and two wine glasses on the table. Nothing more, nothing less.
Also, Sherlock was nervous. Just a bit, but he feared something would go wrong... or John would say "No."

We ate dinner at midnight as the sun revolved overhead, spinning in slow concentric circles, never dipping beyond the horizon. There was no night.
We looked up at the clouds, and she asked us if we wanted to do her a favor-to justify spending the night in her garage apartment at no cost. We weren't freeloaders, so we said O.K. She told us about the slugs.
There were hundreds of them crawling around the garden area-small families leaving slime trails on rock walls. We collected them one at a time, placing each of them in a huge plastic bag. We saw them pile on top of each other, felt their collective weight tugging on the plastic. Watched them squirm around, looking for any signal of familiarity, their antennae moving this way and that, trying to make sense of their situation.
We went in front of the garage and found some little guys crawling in cracks of asphalt. &

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.
