The jeweller wrinkled her nose as she turned the key over in her palm. "Wouldn't you prefer a lovely sapphire Miss Tyler?" she asked. "It only makes sense to have a bigger sapphire for the brooch when the rest of the necklace is --"
"I want the key," Rose said firmly.
"Miss Tyler, don't you think having a house key on a 90,000 pound sapphire necklace would be a bit... I don't know... Tacky?"
Rose pursed her lips. "Look, I wear that key everywhere. Last week at the Battle of New York, the papers realized I had changed it to being on a leather cord. Me without my key is just... non existent. When I led the battle against the final Cyberman factories three years ago. What became all the rave amongst every teena

Now, The Master had tried to dress like Rassilon by wearing the grandest shoulder pads in the land. He even tried to sound like Rassilon, "Open the door and come in! he said.
"What a deep voice you have," said The Doctor in surprise.
"The better to greet you with," said The Master.
"Goodness, what big eyes you have."
"The better to see you with."
"And what big hands you have!" exclaimed Little Red Riding Doctor, stepping over to the bed.
"The better to feel you with," said The Master.
"What a big mouth you have, The Doctor murmured in a weak voice.
"The better to eat you with!" growled The Master, jumping out of the bed.

He has to be strong. He's got to be. Who else but him? Because he's the rock. Always there, never moving, never wavering. If he's not strong then what about the rest of them? What about Nyssa and Tegan? They've just witnessed it too. They're grieving as well. They're crying.
Tegan tries to be strong at first as Nyssa buries her head in silent tears. She approaches the Doctor, a sense of urge filling her voice. But even then, when the Doctor doesn't respond, she cries. The two women cry and the Doctor just stares, too numb to even fully register the seriousness of the situation. To numb to realize what has truly happened.
He quietly leaves the console room, leaving the women to comfort each other. In one of the back hallways, a place that neither Tegan nor Nyssa have ever reached, the Doctor cries. His sleeves become soaked. He cries for Adric and he knows it's his fault.
So when Tegan takes it out on him, he doesn't snap right back. He tries to avoid the conversation and mildly control
Doppelgangers - chapter 1Twist the blue knobby thingy! yelled the Doctor to Donna. Donna shot him a scathing look. It was sort of hard for her to do so; she was leaning over the TARDIS console, moving a lever slowly with one hand and holding down one large red button with the other. The Doctor was busy himself, pressing a sequence of buttons with one hand while holding the monitor in the other, watching the time vortex. The Doctor just gave her a lopsided smile, trying to lean over the top of her to reach the knob.Doppelgangers - chapter 17 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Donna pushed him off with her shoulder and said, Watch it beanpole! Youre getting a little too cozy there! She tried to push the knob with her elbow.
They had just left Agatha Christie at the Harrogate Hotel, and Donna was still determined to get to the right 80s. She decided she should have a go at trying to get there. This was Donnas second flying lesson, and it was not going as well as the first. The TARDIS jerked a few times, jostling the two passengers back a

Amy and Rory trotted out of their house pulling on their coats, smiling, happy to be going on another adventure.
River stepped out of the Tardis and shut the door behind her. She shook her head at them, her expression dire.
“You don’t want to go in there,” she said.
“Why not? What’s wrong?” Amy asked anxiously.
River shook her head and pinched the bridge of her nose.

Run. Keep running.
Don't look back.
Forget me, forget your home, forget your family.
Because we no longer matter.
What matters now is running.
Past the red fields, the orange sky, the burning suns.
Just keep running.
Don't you dare look back.
Don't even glance.
One look, and you'll regret it.
Past the stars, the worlds, the universe itself.
Years, centuries, millenniums.
You can't stop running.
You won't ever look back. Just in case.
But you feel it, don't you?
The pain, the guilt, the grief.
Because you kept running.
What are you running to?
Lost son of Gallifrey, where are you going?
Do you still feel the fire? The flames licking your back?
Do you still hear the screams? The noise ringing in your ears?
Do you still taste the blood? The blood of your enemies, family, friends?
Don't turn. Don't look back.

The New DoctorThe loud whistling of the kettle snapped Rose out of her daze. She pulled it off the stove and began to fill two cups without really paying much attention to it. In the other room sat a stranger with a familiar face. She didnt really know who this new Doctor was, or why he was staying here. She walked into the room with the teacups, her mind repeating the same thought over and over. What are you doing? she asked the man in the chair as she handed him his teacup.The New Doctor7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

The Doctor rounded the corner and skidded to a halt, seizing Donnawho was two steps behind himand dragging her back behind the wall. She opened her mouth to protest but he put a finger to his lips and jerked his head toward the corner, effectively silencing her.
Flattening himself against the wall, he peeked carefully around the corner. Daleks. Two of them. They were standing fairly close to one another; they looked to be talking, but they were too far away for the Doctor to hear what they were saying.
"What is it, Doctor?" Donna hissed.
"Daleks," he whispered, motioning for her to look.
Stepping up behind the Doctor, she poked her head around the corner of the building.

He started yelling and kicking. He lifted himself up and walked to the room she used to sleep in. His brain could not control his body anymore. He kneeled next to the bed and rested his head on the soft blanket. Tears were bathing his face. His voice broke out and he was sobbing.
The Doctor raised his head and looked to the left. There she was. A rusty, foggy ghost image of Rose.
"No!" he yelled and buried his face back into the covers of the bed.
"Doctor, don't cry," Rose almost whispered. "I'm here."
"It's impossible. I used the last of the breach. I'm dreaming." He closed his eyes tightly, and tears fell from his face.
"You aren't. I found the last opening this time."
"THIS time," the Doctor chuckled.

Okay, okay! Hold on. Jack was eager to avoid being shot at, the last thing he needed was the outlaws knowing he couldnt die. It also wouldnt be the best thing if the Doctor got shot, the whole regeneration process would more than freak them out.

Cronous watched the Doctor, he was surprised Theta had stood Donna Noble for so long. But then that was a good thing. 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.
He shook his head and buried those thoughts. He quickly began the dematerialization sequence and

It was green.
He knelt down to study the stalk, rubbing it between his fingers.
Everyone knew that proper grass was red. A blazing crimson stretching to the horizon.
But things were different out here. Different suns, different light spectrums. Different chemical compositions to the soil.
He raised the stalk to his nose, then reared back at the sharp green smell. He preferred the soft cinnamon smell of the grass back home.
He dropped the stalk and stood up. He breathed in a deep lungful of the fresh air. Ah! But he had to admit, this planet smelled amazing after a rain shower.
He turned to find his granddaughter poking her head out of the TARDIS doors.
“Is it safe?” she asked.
He smiled and held out his arm to her.
“Yes, my child. Come and see.”

It had started as a fine evening.
Rose had worn the prettiest dress she could find in the wardrobe. It was a light blue evening gown with small butterflies on it. The Doctor had given her shoes to match. High heels. Shed given him a hard time about it from the beginning.
You just want to look at my legs. Its the only reason anyone EVER wears high heels.
The Doctor tipped his black framed glasses down and peered at her sternly. Thats not true. Its TRADITION with the Haolin people. You think THOSE are bad...you ought to see the knickers Im wearing.
Rose chose to ignore that mental image. She snorted as she slipped them on, stood and teetered dangerously.

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

He remembered the encounter with impeccable detail. There he was, in his 9th regeneration, with a horrible attitude and that damn ugly leather jacket. Then there was Rose, with her shoulder length blonde hair, denim jeans, and the union jack shirt. Union Jack Jack Captain Jack. There he stood in his dark Greatcoat, his navy blue shirt and bracers. At that thought the Doctor began fumbling with his own bracers. Then he thought about what happened after they had cured everyone and the "empty child" was safely back with his mother.

The intrusive medical jargon of the doctors tending to him barely penetrated the dull throbbing in his skull, the rush of blood through his veins magnified a hundredfold and whatever was happening around him—the bright lights shone into lifeless eyes as one of the trainers repeated a question he had no want of answering at the moment, the vague feel of his flak vest being stripped off his shoulders which he offered no resistance to, the sensation of human hands tending to the mess of ruined flash that mapped across his battered back unheeded—-all seemed like a faraway mirage.

The TARDIS was too quiet--he didn't really like quiet all that much, especially in the TARDIS. It just brought back memories. Because what else do you think about when you're not distracted by something else, except past things that already happened?
