10: Hey! What's up Doc? It seems our time streams have crossed
11: Yeah, any ideas on how to fix this paradox?
1o: Not yet, but while we're at it, I've got some things to ask,
10: What's that thing 'round your neck, and that dorky red hat?
11: BOW-TIES ARE COOL! And FYI, so's the fez!
11: As for you, skinny boy, what's with those glasses?
11: You know as well as I do that you can see quite clearly.
11: Are you trying to make yourself look as smart as me?
10: Ha! I'd have to look pretty daft to appear as "intelligent" as you ,
10: Did my next regeneration give you a smaller IQ?

to that city of lost angels
they say does not exist
and tasted the streets paved in gold
and the manna burning too bright
in your eyes.
I let it touch me
no one else dared
and wept at the wonder
of feeling something new.
I watched the sun eclipse
and loved how the cold
welled up from the buildings
and saw the beauty
in bitter weeds
that broke the fallow streets
and made them weep
the simplicity of chaos
stroke my thoughts,
undressing them like carrion
and the hard thrust of deceit
sallow and sinuous
crack the world apart
in my hands.
And I knew in an instant
my home was among the broken,
those softly bleeding souls
whose skin is my incense,
and whose frail flesh
is the light
that leads me back to you...
DW: Those Words"I love you."DW: Those Words2 years ago in Romance More Like This
The words roll off his tongue with unexpected ease. He, of all people, knows how short a human life is, knows that every single second matters and should be treasured. He does not have the time to stall, unlike his Time Lord counterpart.
He pulls back from her, watching her face for any signs of emotion. For a moment, he is scared. Why would she choose him? He is almost as human as she is, albeit with a Time Lord brain. He does not have the TARDIS, nor all of time and space to offer. Why choose that, when she could have all of time and space on a plate?
His thoughts are quickly silenced as she grabs the lapels of his jacket and kisses him thoroughly. His eyes flutter shut as he starts to kiss her back, savouring the moment. A moment he hopes will repeat itself soon because kissing Rose Tyler is mind blowing, amazing and absolutely fantastic... or at least those are the closets words he can find in this inadequate language.
Suddenly, the sound of the TARDIS interrupts the
ViolaA large violin? I think not, foolViola5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Nor am I a tiny cello
And the ones who pluck me, play my strings
Are decidedly more mellow
Inferior? I scoff at this
Because my numbers are few?
Because of lame jokes infinite?
Well, I'll teach you a thing or two
The firsts have egos that fill a sea
The seconds aren't much better
They always rush, embellish and prance
Can't follow their music to the letter
The cellos drone deep and much too loud
"Play soft?" they ask, "Too hard!"
The bassi we like and love because
We're both held sans regard
So now that the idiots (save the doubles, of course)
Have been given their fair due
I'll tell you what's really up with me
Take the bull out from what's true
It's true that I'm the middle child
Oft unnoticed in the room
But I'm a vital link, a bridge
Twixt ego and the boom
I share the cellos strings
But an octave higher still
And though I lack a violin's crest
The lower tones I fill
I don't screech like the violin
Nor growl in the cello's way
My tone is rich
Sleeping (River/Doctor)He was so tired. Even Time Lords can't go on forever. And there was River, in his bed.Sleeping (River/Doctor)3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The Doctor plodded down the Tardis corridor. He was so tired.
He didn't usually get tired. Not like this. But even Time Lords can't go on forever. His eyes blinked and his feet dragged. He was too exhausted even to yawn.
He pushed open his bedroom door and stopped in the doorway. River was curled up in his bed, asleep.
He didn't know how she got in. Maybe she waited until he left and stowed away. Or maybe she'd found some way to materialize inside with her vortex manipulator, although that should have been impossible.
Right at the moment he didn't care. Every once in a while she'd just show up, asleep in his bed.
He pulled his bow tie loose with one heavy hand. He tossed his jacket off carelessly and unwound his arms from his braces. He unbuttoned his shirt and pulled it loose and kicked off his shoes. He didn't bother with the rest.

never trust a writerIt's best to stay far away from us writers. We're double-agents, and can't be trusted.never trust a writer5 years ago in Emotional More Like This
You see, we just have this terrible privilege of not being able to tell the difference between reality and fiction. We sometimes forget that the emotions in our head might not run with as much passion as they really do, and then we get disappointed in things that make normal people happy. We're afraid to get close to people, and yet all we do is yearn for human contact. That's why we write about it, and that's why we lose touch on what it really feels like to be in a relationship.
Writers often find that we don't fully comprehend the world around us, and, considering ourselves realists, we wonder what is wrong with the world that makes it so different from what's in our heads. That's why we write about it, and that's why when we finally venture out of our homes, we can't help but curl up our shoulders protectively and stick our hands low in our pockets, blinking at the intensely bright lack of color.

Alice Kingsleigh pulled her jacket a little tighter around her and hurried her steps. When she'd decided to stay late at the Kingsleigh and Ascot Trading firm's office, she had not expected to lose track of time and make her way back to the little place she was renting in the dark. Most people steered clear of her because she was "strange," but there were those few who found ways past their superstitions of her to approach her. And without an escort
"Excuse me, miss, but would ye 'appen to know where the 'arbor is?"
Alice's initial instinct was to run very far and very fast away from the voice that had suddenly come from behind her. But her second, stronger, reaction made her freeze in recognition. That sounded like She spun, irrational but anxious hope in her heart, to face the owner of that voice. "Tarrant?"
She was immediately disappointed.
Mad Wonderland -11-Back when the battle of the Champion had been fought and, for the Red Queen, lost, most her card knights had surrendered their weapons and their loyalty to her. However a small number had remained loyal to the Bloody Red Queen and had sought her out in her exile to serve her again, hoping to restore her to her formal glory. As this force grew, Ilosivich Stayne, of whom the Red Queen was terrified after his attempt on her life, suddenly changed his behavior toward the Queen, once again becoming loyal and subservient to her. Though the card knights saw the change as suspicious, the Queen had been more than willing to once again accept Stayne into her good graces for she indeed still harbored affection for her Knave of Hearts. The Red Queen had rallied her troops, though small in number, into a force which they all referred to as the Red Rebellion. She'd added to her troops by terrorizing small villages far outside the reign of the White Queen, staying well out of sight until she had a laMad Wonderland -11-3 years ago in Romance More Like This

"When are we for you?" River asked, leaning one hip against the console. The Tardis was quiet, the low background hum the only noise. It was only the two of them on board.
"It's after Lake Silencio for me," the Doctor replied.
"Really?" she perked up. "Thank god!" She grabbed his lapel and started pulling him toward the upper staircase. "Come along, snookums!"
He tripped over his feet, appalled. "Snookums! I am not a snookums!"
"All right then, Babycakes," she said over her shoulder, dragging him along with obvious intent.
"I am not a babycakes!"
"NO!" he fumed and came to a determined standstill. She jerked to a stop and turned to look at him.

He pulled at his hair. "Good grief, River! Can't you think of any better names than that?"

River pulled down the sheet that covered her face and looked up, bleary-eyed, at the Doctor looming over her in her cell.
"Unh!" She glared at him.
"Did you just grunt at me?" he asked.
She grunted again.
The Doctor grinned like a little boy who'd just discovered his dog could talk. He bounced on his toes and beamed at her. She gave him a dirty look and scrubbed her hands over her weary face and into her tangled hair.
Resigned, she flung aside her prison issue blanket and swung her feet to the floor. She sat up, then hunched over with her face in her hands.
"What do you want, Sweetie?" she asked, trying not to sound as disgusted as she felt.
"Grunt again," he said.
She stared up at him over her fingers. "What?"
He bounced, beaming. "Grunt again. It's cute!"
River groaned into her hands and rocked slightly, finally rocking herself to her feet.

She was asleep. Like Sleeping Beauty in her glass casket, River lay on a golden bier, her hair curling around her head like a silky cloud, her face still.
The Doctor rubbed his hands together and made a happy “ooh” face. That means he got to kiss her awake. This was perfect.
He leaned over, then stopped. He just looked at her. She didn’t breathe, but she wasn’t pale. She was still that wonderful honey gold tone, her strong lovely body draped in a flowing white gown. His wife. His hearts beat doubletime, strange that they could here.
Her beautiful well-formed face, each feature alone unique in itself, her strong nose, her lush mouth, those long eyelashes, that stubborn jaw. Oh how he’d missed that stubborn jaw.
With his hearts beating like a freight train, he leaned down and kissed her, oh so softly.
She jerked up, her arm striking out. He dodged, reared back, windmill
Rose Comes First"We're out of tea bags." Rose appeared in the doorway of the library.Rose Comes First4 years ago in Romance More Like This
The Doctor didn't look up from his book. He was sitting crossed legged on the sofa and clutching a mug of tea. "Yeah, sorry I used the last one, thought I'd get some more in the morning. I thought you'd gone to bed early anyway." He looked up at her, brow furrowing with concern; she was visibly drained and looked utterly miserable. She was wearing pink pyjamas and a hoodie that was far too big for her, one of his that he knew was her favourite so always wore to concerts when she refused to let him wear his suit. She'd wrapped her vibrant pink duvet around herself in a way which only made him more aware that she was really suffering. "Are you alright?" He stood up, book falling on the floor as he pulled her into a hug, the warm mug of tea held carefully out the way. She shook her head and leant into him, pressing her cheek against his chest as he rubbed her back. "How long have you been feeling like this?" He suddenly

She now stood in the middle of the beach, waiting. Waiting for something to happen. Suddenly the Doctor faded out of the thin air. He looked just the same. Same messy hair, same sideburns, same brown eyes she could lose herself in.

"Inside the TARDIS." His voice sounded distant, as though he was not completely there. "There's one little gap in the Universe left, just about to close. I'm burning up a sun just to say goodbye."
Rose wondered if he had any idea how romantic that sounded. "Yo

As she brushed up to his side, the Doctor seemed to fall back up against the wall. River thrusted her arms around him, pushing her body into his own. "I can't wait any longer, Doctor," she moaned, "I must have you." The Doctor tried to protest, but something stopped him; a sort of giddy feeling inside him took over. She came in to hug him, causing him to shiver from the maddening emotions overpowering him. Her eyes locked onto his, as his did the same, and placed a soft hand on his cheek. The Doctor blushed madly, and could see that River's cheeks were doing the same as well. His hands and teeth clenched, he could hardly feel his legs, and almost thought he would fall over, but River had moved her arms wrapped around his waist. "River, what are you..." The Doctor was interrupted when River came in and kissed his neck. The Doctor quickly shut his eyes, the tickling sensation was too much, it was nearly unbearable. He wanted to giggle but kept quiet.

He was sitting in a mound of bubbles up to his chin with a disposable party hat on his head.
He'd sculpted the bubbles into a Santa Claus beard and mustache, and there were a variety of boats, ducks, and what looked like the tail of a plastic dragon poking out of the mountains of foam.
River lounged in the doorway and stared at him, shaking her head, and smiling indulgently. "Enjoying yourself?" she asked.
"River!" He jumped up, splashing water and foam everywhere. He grinned delightedly. "I didn't hear you arrive." He stopped and cocked his head, listening. "We haven't landed, have we?"
River shook her head. She held out her wrist. "Vortex manipulator. Sexy and I have been working on it."
His eyes got huge, gleaming bright. "You materialized inside while we're in the vortex? That's brilliant!" He gamboled over to her, dripping water and foam. He almost tripped over the lip of the huge, clawfooted bathtub. H

The Doctor's hair was mussed. River's skirt was hiked up her legs, and her dress draped down over one bare shoulder.
When Amy and Rory walked into the library, the Doctor was sitting in a chair reading a book, while River was sitting on the sofa opposite him, reading a manuscript.
"So," Amy said, looking at their disheveled appearance, the books knocked over on the table between them, and River's shoes flung in the corner. "What have you two been up to?"
The Doctor looked up from his book. He held it up. "Reading."
"Uh, huh," Amy said, looking at the Doctor's jacket lying over the back of the couch beside River and the Doctor's one shoe that was off lying in a heap of books beside the coffee table.
"Why, Amy?" River asked innocently, rolling her scroll higher. "What do you think we were doing?" River gave her mother a thoroughly limpid look.
Amy put her hands on her hips. "Oh, don't give me that look."

"Caaareful," the eccentric man protested as his prized possession trembled for the umpteenth time. He held out his hands as if hoping to catch it, but in reality it could probably crush him. The skinny stranger moved as if he hadn't quite grown into his limbs, waltzing about in a tweed jacket, navy trousers and a bright bow-tie. And to hinder his physical talents even further, his unruly brown hair dangled completely in front of his eyes in one fell swoop.

But this time Inuyasha was ready and he caught Kikyo's wrist and twisted, smiling as he heard the cracking sound. It was Kikyo's turn to stagger back. She fell down, holding on to her wrist.
Inuyasha walked up to her and said, "WHAT THE HELL! Did you really think that that would work."
Kikyo seemed to have enough energy to point to Inuyasha's hurt arm with her good one and said, "Well, it did at first, you bloody hanyou."
Inuyasha wasn't even shocked that she had said that. He had always suspected that Kikyo didn't really like him…that she was only using him, and all of that just proved it.

"Just... the darkness is coming," she replied.
She looked thoughtful for a second, her eyes suddenly focusing on something behind him. "Why don't you ask her yourself?"
He stared at her for a second, before her words finally sunk in. He slowly turned around, ready to be disappointed when it turned out not to be her, because it was impossible. His brain told him that, but his hearts would not stop beating faster in anticipation.
But as he turned around and saw her for the first time, his thoughts stopped and he could not help but stare. He was captivated by the familiar smile spreading across her face, her blonde hair, her brown eyes. Days and nights had b
