"Where is he?" Sable stomped her right foot, hands on her hips. Captain Harris looked up lazily from his maps and slowly withdrew his cigar from his mouth. He exhaled a cloud of smoke in the duchess's general direction.
"You know very well who!" Sable growled. "Jim Hawkins, where is he?"
"I don't reckon I know, missy."
Sable fumed a moment, then hissed slowly, "My cousin orders his presence for supper. NOW."
The captain sighed, situating his captain's hat on the crown of his head. "The boy tol' me not to tell a soul where he is... but I guess you don't have one o' them, eh Sable?"
Sable squinted at the man. "It's Duchess to you."
Captain Harris nodded, waving her comment off. "He's on the spar deck, makin' fishing nets. Don't anger him, awright Duchess? When he checked in an hour ago, he seemed rearin' to strangle a gizzard."
Sable frowned but, acknowledging the captain was trying to be polite to a certain degree, nodded.

Jim was explaining the nature of their visit to one of the many butlers in the palace. The grey-haired, balding man stared at the redhead for a moment, gasped, and then enthusiastically scurried off, not asking why the girl was wearing boy's clothes and gaping at the ceiling. If this was the one, it wouldn't matter.
"I've told Brigan what our-- business here is." The spacer told Ariel, tapping her on the shoulder to jolt her from her revelry. "He will go alert the prince of your arrival.

The trip back to the villa was consensual after the shirt affair, and relatively uneventful.
Jim had Max fetch his crutches and, finding that his new houseguest was also a bit wobbly, lent her one. After managing to steady each other by putting one arm around the others neck, they began the small adventure of staying aloft and walking simultaneously. In the end, it took them about thirty minutes to walk the one hundred meters to the summer home.
Immediately upon crossing the threshold, Ariel was entranced with the dwelling. It was quaint and bright, with glass French doors and lots of windows. There was a decorative fireplace surrounded by creamy leather furniture in the living room near the spacious kitchen (it was Chef Louies villa, after all). Having finally gained her land legs, the new human excitedly examined every inch of her new abode, Max, who thought she was looking for tasty leftovers, following eagerly behind her.

The rest of the day was filled with cleaning of decks, special arrangements made for the special guests, and primitive background checks of the caterers, musicians, and the crew. Even the sailors Jim knew personally and could vouch for were checked for connections with pirates and political enemies of the prince. The captains paranoia was getting seriously out of hand.
The preparations kept Jim comfortably busy, however, so he didn't fuss when Captain Harris sent him for a certain kind of pillow for the prince's dog, or when the cook demanded fresh clams for his chowder, and Jim had to go to the shallow pools himself to collect some. As long as his dirty jobs kept Sable at a safe distance, he could not complain. The prince did as much as Harris would allow, which included such jobs as helping Jim coil the excess rope.

And you're still trying
To trap us all
I wish I could have known
Before it got to this
How you really are
Hiding underneath that smirk
You really don't care
About how many hearts you break
Cracking us open until we bleed
You were the bad one
All this time
And never worth
All I gave
So keep sitting there
Laughing in the background
Pretending to love
When you have no clue
Of the damage you've done

and i'm at a loss

i'll make sure
you never want to leave
with the simplest of pleasures

If I told you how much I care
How much you mean to me
Would you turn away
Run so far from me
We'd never speak again
Or would your smile light up
Like it does my world
On a daily basis
Would if I reached out
To hold your hand
For just a little bit
I wonder if I'd see
Your eyes widen
And see right through me
You are sweeter than sugar
An angel in disguise
Who deserves to be treated like a princess
I wish I could show you
What you're missing out on
And what you really deserve
But I'll just sit quietly
And do my best from afar
Because it's better off this way...

while looking straight at me.
I told you it was a sin to lie, no matter how beautiful the mouth that whispered them were.
You repeated the tired rhythm and I always brushed you away. I never knew how much that killed you inside until it was too late. You tried everything to get me to see me the way you do. I covered up the mirrors and turned away from your crying, pleading eyes. I bled out my pain, creating the scars I felt worthy of. After so many years of being pushed down, and only having you, one in a million telling me otherwise, I had lost my ability to believe I was anything but worthless, pathetic, and ugly. I can finally see now, you were only saying what you saw and what I had to see. Too bad it's too late

Hugs and ChipsRose stretched and pushed the duvet off. Swinging her legs off the bed, she saw a note on her bedside table. "Follow the trail, but save some for me, yeah? - x," it read. A plate was on the floor with a trail of chips leading out her bedroom door. She followed it, putting each chip on the plate as she went.Hugs and Chips in General Fiction More Like This
She stumbled upon a second note that said, "You're halfway there. Find me soon and you'll get a surprise - x." It took another ten minutes to reach the library, where the trail of chips lead to the couch she liked to curl up on. The Doctor was sitting there.
He took the plate from her as she asked, "Where's my prize?"
Feeding her a chip, he put one in his mouth and set the plate down. "This." He pulled her into a hug. "I'm glad you slept well. It gave me time to set all this up."
Rose pushed him down on to the couch and nestled into him. She reached for the plate and he set it on his lap, within reach for both of them.
"Thanks for saving me some," he remarked. "I know how much you l

His body rose and the light extended from his limbs for a few minutes before ceasing as he was somehow laid gently back to the stone floor. The rain had slowed to a drizzle, but Rose didn't notice. A new man was lying in his place. This new man had brown hair that spiked despite the rain and dark brown eyes instead of the soft blue eyes and big ears she was used to. He picked himself off the ground.
"Rose...it's me," he said, walking toward her.
She looked at him, not believing, and lifted a hand to touch the spikey hair. He looked like he was willing her to believe. Then something clicked, the light and wisdom behind his eyes were the same. "It is you," she said. She touched his face then lay her hands on his chest, above his two hearts.

John tried not to show his disappointment when once again, Rose opted to sleep in the guest bedroom instead of in their room. He knew it wasn't his fault. They wounds were still fresh from the last time she saw the Doctor. She'd been willing to accept him, the human, but when he had left without even saying goodbye, things had gone downhill for the new couple. Pete and Jackie had stayed out of it, knowing it wouldn't do any good to try and talk some sense into Rose.

You're not going to want to believe this, but I promise every word of it is true. Do you remember that day in the shop? Everything seemed like a normal day. But then you met him. You met a man who grabbed your hand and told you to run. And you never let go of that hand. He left you, though, standing alone at Dårlig Ulv Stranden on the worst day of your life.

It wasn't a secret to her. She knew about his past, what he'd done. He travelled to forget about all that, he'd done things he regretted and slowly left bits of himself behind, scattered like dust on the wind. He kept coming back to Earth, as if something or someone was drawing him there but he didn't know why.
I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon
After all, I knew it had to be something to do with you
I really don't mind what happens now and then

But then he met Rose and his life, their life, changed. The force drawing him to Earth was her bright smile and trust. He became more carefree. Even the running was fun. As long as they ended every adventure hand in hand, together, nothing bad could ever happen
Taking Care of RoseRose hadn't come out of her room since he'd woken her up hours ago. The Doctor knocked on her door. "Rose?" He knocked again. When she didn't answer, he slowly opened the door. She wasn't in bed, but a coughing sound from the bathroom told him where she was.Taking Care of Rose in General Fiction More Like This
He came into her bathroom to find her with her face pressed against the cool seat of the toilet. "You alright?" he asked gently, crouching beside her.
She whimpered in response.
He held her hair back as she heaved again, rubbing her back soothingly. She was still in her pyjamas, and he knew this wasn't a hangover. Patiently, he sat with her until she was finished, then helped her into the bath, averting his eyes. While she cleaned up, he found her a pair of sweat pants and one of her pyjama tops so she could change.
"Thanks," she said softly when he put them on the sink counter. She made a motion telling him she wanted to get out so he moved a towel closer to her and left.
A few minutes later she came out and crawled back into bed.

"You can't," he replied. "Not like this, at least. And I'm so sorry."
They stood for a moment in silence before she managed to choke out, "I love you."
"Quite right too." It was taking effort for him to stay now. "And I suppose, if it's my last chance to say it...Rose Tyler, I--" He faded away, travelling to a new, unfamiliar place. There was no future for him now. One tear traced a path down his cheek as he prepared for the end.
Her face in her hands, she remained where she was, crying.
Somewhere in the past, a gunshot rang out.
And she felt it.

She shook her head. "Not when you're clearly having so much fun." She took another.
"Give me that," he said, coming behind her and snatching the camera. When Rose protested and came after him, he turned the camera on her.
She gave him a cheeky smile, the one he loved so much, before darting to the other side of the console. "You want more pictures, you'll have to catch me first." With that, she bolted off down one of the hallways.
The Doctor knew it was no use pleading the TARDIS for help catching Rose. The old girl had taken a liking to her from the first moment she stepped inside. Cursing her head start, he chased after her.
He caught sight of her slipping down the corridor that lead to the expansive wardrobe. He was silent when he entered. Frantically, he pawed through racks and racks of clothing from all ov

Ludo entered the circle with many small rocks at his feet, howling into the air, making the boulders roll away again. 'Ludo! You came back!' Sarah shouted, running over and hugging him. Jareth stepped forward and thanked him. Sarah suddenly remembered, 'Where are the others, Ludo?' She said, stepping back and taking Jareth's arm. 'Sawah, follow.' Ludo turned and began to walk, beckoning them to follow with one large paw, waving forwards.

'How can we help you?' another voice chimed in. 'Which way did the people before us go?' Sarah asked looking down as she hadn't seen them on the way up and the shaft was only so big.

The last bit made Jareth laugh a little. He sat for a while, twisting his crystals between his fingers, but he soon became bored and summoned a goblin to make him a coffee, because he was afraid of the kettle, well, he was afraid of scalding himself. He started to pace around the apartment, nosing through things until he found something that was of his interest. He had found many plushies of creatures from his labyrinth, some he recognised, others he couldn't. He noticed one in particular of Hoggle, Sarah's weather-beaten friend that

She walked out of the house, as Jareth passed Toby, he pushed him into the doorframe and grabbed the neck of his shirt in his fist, 'You hurt her, and I'll kill you.' Toby let go of his shirt and Jareth was tempted to summon a goblin upon the boy, but he thought it wasn't wise, as he had already overstepped the mark with Sarah.
Jareth sat silently in the car whilst Sarah started on her journey. Sarah felt it was awkward, so she decided to make some conversation but what could she converse about with the Goblin King??

Sarah's eyes were fixed on the crystal that rolled towards her, down the stairs of her father's house, reflecting beautiful patterns as it bounced and danced down each step, so elegantly that she felt transfixed by it's beauty.
She closed her eyes, and covered her face with her hands and stepped back only to hit the front door with her back. She felt a hand stroke the side of her face, down her jaw line and to the tip of her chin and trace up her hand and to the fingertips. 'Sarah, do not cower under my touch, it saddens me to see you shiver at the very stroke of my fingers.' She removed her hands from her face to reveal large tears streaming down her face.

But we were ripped apart
And you're gone now for good.

She wasn't going to think about that right now though, it was true that currently she had The Doctor, but it wasn't really him.

"I'll take your word for it," he said. He pulled a smaller gun out of his coat. "Here, you may need this."
