"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.

The ABC's of Doctor WhoAngels, as a general rule, cause more harm than good.The ABC's of Doctor Who3 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
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.

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.

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

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. &

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?"

He stared down at the screwdriver on his workbench like it was the foulest thing in creation. He'd incorporated every failsafe, every signal booster, and every enhancement he could think of into it.
It had a fingerguard, dampeners, and red settings. It had functions even his own sonic didn't have. Every possible function he could think of that might help keep her safe. Who knew how long it would be between the Towers and the Library for her. And she was even more prone to falling into dangerous situations than he was.

Michael had not expected to see his younger brother there in the field, and from the look on Lucifer's face, he had not either. The light from the moon casted shadows across Lucifer's face, giving him a ghostly appearance that made Michael frown as his eyes met the gaze of his brother. The field was where Michael had been coming every so often just to think, a place away from his responsibilities as 'big brother.' Normally, he could hear the soft sounds of his Father's creations singing in the night, but tonight there was none, nothing of the sort. And if there was one thing that made Michael even more wary of his little brother, it was the fact that they both appeared to be alone, but there was an uneasy feeling in the pit of Michael's stomach. They weren't as alone as he though but there was no way to tell, whoever it was, was too far away for him to tell.

Everything thing went completely quiet except for the somewhat off key singing drifting through the rough doorway that had been cut into the wall beside the energon dispenser.
After a few moments the assembled Eradicons began to mutter nervously, restlessly shifting but clearly not sure if they should try and run or stand and take whatever punishment might come their way.
The whole half groon had been... odd.
First that had been that ground bridge accident with Starscream.

My love, I ask for so much,
And yet you always give,
Without questioning or curiosity.
Though I do wish,
You'd let me finish a sentence
Before I stopped speaking.
And how you jump to conclusions,
Because when I say I love cows,
You shouldn't bring up the guy who tried to sleep with one.
My love, you know everything
And yet, just how can I trust you
When my high school teacher can't?
You tend to be a bit gullible,
Believing anything anyone says,
But just as quickly changing your mind.
Although you are indecisive,
I simply cannot resist asking,
Or else I wouldn't have passed tenth grade.
My love, you are the most popular kid,
I want to tell you everything,
But I know you'll tell everyone else.
Gossip, harlot, seductress,
Eventually everyone will come to you.
You used to have standards, you know.
College, a higher education,
But now anyone will do.
A special kind of STD,
Known only as Farmville.

The fingers over Dean's eyes are cool and dry and gentle, and Dean begs for forgiveness for what he has to do, grabbing Cas' lapels desperately in his fist. But they both know it is inevitable and Cas just shakes his head to silence him, says "It's okay, Dean." trying hard to sound calm, as if this can't touch him, though he knows he's not quite succeeding. "It's okay. Just... don't look."
His voice is full of grief and trust and a plea to do this quickly, make it clean and painless for both of them.
There's a sharp exhale from Dean, like a sob but much more deep and raw, and suddenly there's a dagger lodged in Cas' chest. He isn't sure if it hit his heart but he thinks it might have from the overwhelming feeling of weakness enveloping him in an instant, wrapping him in dark velvet. Warm blood is cascading down his chest, pouring out faster than his shirt can soak it up, and dripping to the ground in vivid crimson.
