RAP BATTLE: TENTH DOCTOR VS. ELEVENTH DOCTOR
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?
10: You're stupid, you're a doctor who can't "make people better".
10: I, on the other hand, always win because I'm clever!

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...

“The Koh-i-Noor! We held the Koh-i-Noor!”
Jackie smiled, raising her eyebrows slightly. “Blimey! That’s impressive! You should have brought it home.”
She laughed. “Mum!”
“What? Oh don’t give me that look. Why didn’t you?”
The Doctor stared at her for a second then nudged Rose. “Is she serious?”
“Yes I am serious!” She leant forward slightly. “We could do with the money.”
Rose chuckled. “We’re not so hard up that we need to steal from Queen Victoria.”
She wrinkled her nose. “Well I’m sure she can spare a few quid.”
The Time Lord looked between both women. “What?” His brow creased. “Rose, I don’t understand, is she being serious? ‘Cause I can’t tell if she’s being serious and that scares me.

He looked at the first photo; Rose, just a few hours old, wrapped tightly in her mother’s arms as her head rested on her chest. “Yeah.” He turned his head as Rose perched on the arm of the sofa beside him.
She leant towards him and peered over his shoulder. “Oh, Mum!”
She chuckled. “Shh, you’re adorable and it’s not like there’s any inappropriate ones. Neither of us was ever like that and I assure you you’re just beautiful in every single one.”

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

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.

"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?"

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.

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 -11-4 years ago in Romance More Like This

"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 is not holding onto the pole: he stands off to its side, swaying slightly with the movements of the train, but balanced perfectly and seemingly without effort. He never holds onto the poles. He takes pride in being able to maintain his balance like this, although he knows its not the sort of quality anyone else will appreciate, and its not really something you can put on your résumé. Too bad.Maurice Eugene Dobson7 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He is a small man, though he prefers the word diminutive. He is five feet, four and a half inches tall in his stocking feet, and slightly built: his clothes hang on him as though bewildered to have such an insufficient resident. He wears pressed khaki pants, their sharp creases billowing several inches forward of his knees; he wears a stiff checkered shirt and a navy blue suit jacket with a single gold button that is somehow incongruous.
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

"And where is this coming from all of a sudden?" She rubbed sleep out of her eye and let out a tired yawn.
I could have told her it was a goal, a desire to make my self feel more human more alive or I could have told her I wished to get these wild thoughts out of my brain and on to paper. But I shrugged.

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?"
