Ten x Reader
Request: @ask-thewhiphand submitted; Could I get 5 and 3 with the Tenth Doctor pretty please?
@alix-winchester asked: I’m thinking you’re busy right now but if not I’d like to request a 3 & 5 on the prompt list where reader talks to Jack about everything but the doctor (10) doesn’t know she’s depressed. When they start dating she gets afraid he’ll leave and she runs away but he doesn’t find out why until after he’s gone looking and found her. (I’m sorry if this is too specific, you can bend a couple things if you want. Just looking for a little angst near the start and mostly fluff)
Hey there! While one of your requests has more specifics, I ended up combining both of them since they called for the same Doctor, and same prompts. Also, I just wanted to mention since I personally have not attempted suicide, and I have not experienced what it is to be, and feel like in that exact situation, I wasn’t fully sure how to write in this perspective. I did what I thought I could do, and in a way that I was able to identify with, but if anything is offensive or is harmful I will change what I need to. With that said, I did alter some things, and adjusted the dialogue to fit what the story ended up being. I hope that that’s okay! Thank you for requesting, I hope you come by again! xoxo

Everything had been going great for you so far. You had been able to go one wondrous, and amazing adventures with a man you were falling for, and your best friend in the whole universe. You hadn’t felt this happy in a long time. While you had been traveling with the Doctor and Jack for almost two years, you and the Doctor had only been officially together for almost six months. You had to give thanks to Jack really, since he was the one who was able to get the two of you to admit your feelings for each other.
While it wasn’t a secret that you had been living with depression, you kept it away from the Doctor as much as you could. You didn’t want to feel like you were burdening him, and your relationship. It just didn’t feel like it was the right time to begin talking to him about it, or trying to navigate a way of life for the two of you and your depression. You wanted to just be with him right now, and not worry about all the serious stuff.
Jack had been a wonderful friend to you throughout your time together. He was always there for you if you needed him to listen to you, talk to you, or just be with you during the times you couldn’t be alone. In return, you were there for him as well through thick and thin, making the two of you become very close. He never told the Doctor because you had asked him not to, and he was respectful of your boundaries. When you were ready, you would talk about it. However, while you were happier than what you thought most people were able to experience, it didn’t make the hard times less difficult for you to go through.
