Oh gosh anon, that’s such an open question, I almost don’t know where to go with it. These are gonna be totally random and whatever pops into my brain as I’m writing this.
- Five is almost unfailingly polite, language-wise, except when he’s working on the TARDIS, then he ends up swearing A LOT in Gallifreyan / uttering colorful phrases that aren’t quite obscene. Normally no one notices this, except he made the mistake of teaching Nyssa some of his native language (she asked him to), so now he has to remember to watch what he says when she’s in the room. (It’s embarrassing when your companion hears you calling the retrostablizers rude names after all.)
- On a similar note, the Doctor learned to speak Traken (Trakenite / Trakenese? Some completely different word? ) for Nyssa, so that she would have at least one other person in the universe to speak her native language with. (He could’ve just let the TARDIS keep translating for him, but he made the effort to learn it himself specifically for her.) He taught her English and some Gallifreyan because those are both useful languages, given where they end up a lot of the time, but if they’re alone together, he’ll always use her native language.
- The reason it took so long to get Tegan back to Heathrow was 100% the TARDIS wanting to keep her around because she does all the yelling at the Doctor that the TARDIS can’t.
- Contrary to all expectations, the Sixth Doctor is really good with kids.
- The Ninth Doctor is actually a pretty good cook but he insists on take-away 90% of the time because getting chips with Rose was one of the first times he’d been really happy since the Time War ended.
- There is absolutely a karaoke machine in the depths of the TARDIS somewhere, and it’s Susan’s fault it exists.
- the Doctor really did save the day with a kettle and some string once.
- It took the Doctor until his Seventh incarnation to actually substantially change the TARDIS’ desktop configuration from the factory settings because he refused the read the manual.
so the other day an IT guy came to my office to swap out my PC. at one point he had to remote into his own computer and I saw that he had the TARDIS as his desktop. I commented on it and he was all “omg you watch doctor who” and i said “you work in a company made up entirely of geeks, this should not surprise you, lol” so we ended up in this long conversation about doctor who and star trek and lots of other geek things
then he said
“you know what i just started to watch? sherlock.”
i didn’t say anything for a second. then i dropped it:
“are you sure you’re ready for this conversation?”
Title: A Place For Us To Dream (35/?) Rating: T Summary: —Doomsday AU— What would have happened if the Doctor’s lever had been the one to slip? If the Doctor had been the one trapped in the parallel universe? Rose has to pick up the pieces and carry on in his place. After all, someone has to be the Doctor. Characters: Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jackie Tyler, Pete Tyler, Mickey Smith, Martha Jones, Donna Noble Notes: This story was inspired by a number of things — namely badwolfrun trying to keep me entertained at work by sending me this ask, which became this graphic and this graphic made by MK, and subsequent discussions with MK and perfectlyrose. Enjoy! Notes: Yeah this happened. I figured I would post it now since it’s shirt and I don’t want to waste a week.
Martha was, without a doubt, the hardest thing Rose had done so far.
Going back into the vortex alone hurt,
so much, and it took all of Rose’s willpower not to go back and beg
Martha to come with her.
She couldn’t be selfish. She couldn’t
be selfish. She couldn’t be selfish.
God she just wanted to be selfish.
Rose wiped her eyes as she finally
pushed herself up, pulling a lever…
