Red Velvet Suit

Thanks @legendslikestardust for the prompt Velvet . It inspired me for Ten wearing one. 

‘Sorry, but WOT are you wearing? Who let the 70’s in? ‘

The Doctor looked down at the suit he was wearing, smoothed it down and gave Donna a pointed look.

‘What do you mean who let the 70’s in? It’s a time machine. It can be the 70’s any time we want’ he explained.

‘But why are you wearing a velvet suit?’ She asked. Instead of his usual pinstripes, he was instead wearing a red velvet suit. He broke into a wide grin.

‘Velvet suits are cool’


Donna’s, like.

 Low self-esteem because of her abusive/abrasive mother and low status jobs: distracts herself from it with bluster and trivia. Actually she’s very funny, compassionate, smart and talented. Low-key desperate for validation. Lots of initiative because she figures she’s got nothing to lose.

That’s not nothing, but it’s pretty much everything.

Here's a ღ for ten x donna~~~~~ You asked for it XD

I did ask! Thank you!

  • Who’s the first to wake up in the morning: The Doctor is usually up and about long before Donna is actually close to awake considering how little he sleeps. On the odd night or so that he does sleep straight through the night, though, he is out, and Donna will find him wrapped all around her in his sleep.
  • Who’s the one to make breakfast: They take turns, or sometimes Donna will put him out from under the TARDIS grating after she wakes up if he’s lost track of time, and then they move about the kitchen making it together.
  • Who’s the one to serve the other breakfast in bed: The Doctor, and Donna still can’t believe he hasn’t dropped the tray yet seeing as he piles it high with all sorts of food. All of her favorites, and she can’t help but think he’s spoiling her rotten and completely ruined her for human men. She makes him eat half of it since she believes he needs it more.
  • Who would suggest a quickie in the morning before work: Unless Donna’s really in the mood, she knows better than to argue with the Doctor when he’s up before her and already got his coat on for a day of traveling. When she wakes up before him, though, they start the day off much differently.
  • Who suggests they both ditch work to lay around all day: Neither of them really work but sometimes Donna will suggest they put their tour of the universe on hold for a day. The Doctor can usually be persuaded to accommodate her, although if he had a particularly good destination in mind he is liable to pout about it until Donna shows him what all they can do without even leaving their room.
  • Who chooses the movies: Donna does as the Doctor doesn’t want to spoil future films for her, and also his tastes are often weird, so she claims. Though every once in a while he absolutely demands a Disney marathon, to which Donna acquiesces with a shake of the head. She can’t help smiling when he sings along though, and sometimes he can even convince her to join in.
  • Who initiates kissing during the movie, thus distracting the other from the movie all together: The Doctor. What? He’s easily distracted and usually seen whatever film is on the screen more times than he cares to remember. Donna is far more interesting. If Donna’s never seen it, he gets a warning about hands, but if she has seen it he is often far more lucky.
  • Who orders lunch: They usually get lunch on the go wherever they’ve landed for the day if they’re not busy running or saving the place. If they’re out of food on the TARDIS, Donna makes him land somewhere on Earth so she can give an address to whatever takeaway place she’s decided to call.
  • Who steals food from the other’s plate without asking: They end up just sharing between them a lot of the time, and often the Doctor will hold out his fork with something on it for Donna to try something when they’re on some planet light years away from Earth. If Donna ever has anything with bananas as one of the ingredients, though, all bets are off and taking her eyes off her plate for even a second means forfeiting it.
  • Who curls up next to the other and falls asleep due to a full tummy: The Doctor, though he claims he’s not actually asleep but rather thinking deeply. Time Lord thing, obviously. Donna just rolls her eyes and puts his head in her lap so she can better run her hands through his hair. It seems to help him “think”, and he always looks less tired after. That’s good enough reason for her to play along.
  • Who distracts the other from trying to work at home: The only work that gets done in their “home” is TARDIS maintenance so Donna by default. Her strategy is to sit in the pilot’s chair asking him questions about any given topic until he gets out from underneath the grating in order to properly respond with rambles and gesturing. Once she made the mistake of picking the TARDIS as a topic and the next thing she knew she was on her back beside him staring up at the underbelly of the control panel and being shown which wires fed into which buttons and so on. It did rather improve her piloting, so it wasn’t a total loss.
  • Who asks to go get ice cream like a five year old: The Doctor. Donna doesn’t know why she keeps giving in, but she’s pretty sure he’s dragged her into every little ice cream parlor this side of the Milky Way.
  • Who takes pictures of their partner eating ice cream: Donna, seeing as the Doctor hardly ever takes a picture in his life. And also so she can show Martha later and complain about how she’s stuck with this big alien kid even though they both know she finds him not-so-secretly adorable.
  • Who makes a sexual joke about the dripping ice cream on their partner’s face: Once the Doctor made a joke about his own face and Donna laughed so hard she swears she stopped breathing for a minute.
  • Who cooks dinner: Sometimes they take turns if one of them wants to do something special for the other, but most often they do it together, chatting away all the while.
  • Who cleans up the kitchen afterwards: Together again. It’s more time they don’t have to spend apart and it’s usually both their mess.
  • Who stays up until 2 reading: The Doctor. Donna’s tried a couple times to stay up as late as he does, but he’s mad to stay awake so long.
  • Who stares at their partner while their sleeping: The Doctor, usually. It’s often a struggle for him to believe that this is real or that someone as brilliant as Donna could want him. He confessed as much one time when she blinked bleary eyes awake in the middle of the night and asked what he was looking at. She mumbled that he was barmy thinking he was the lucky one, then rolled over and said something that sounded rather like “turn the bloody light off”.
  • Who kisses their partner while they sleep: Whenever Donna does catch him asleep, she does this. She can’t help herself. It’s such a rare occurrence, and it feels so special. The Doctor tends to stroke her hair rather than kiss her because he’s afraid to wake her up. And also he loves her hair.

My Writing
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor
Pairing: Doctor/Donna
Summary: In a universe where people are born with the name of the person destined for them displayed on their skin, intergalactic soulmates can be rather difficult to navigate.

The Doctor could not believe it. Not only had this woman appeared on his TARDIS out of nowhere, not only did she not seem to have any idea how she’d done it — but her name. Her name.

“Donna,” she said, staring out at the stars beyond the air shell, and the Doctor felt his hearts stutter in his chest and the hairs on the back of his neck rise.

No. No. This couldn’t be happening now.
