Warning: This is not a Ten2 story. He is gone, but, not forgotten, exactly. Basically, in my world, Ten2 was a vessel, created by the TARDIS, to store the Tenth Regeneration of the Doctor. A fleshy pocket watch, if you will, for those who have seen Human Nature or Utopia.

Summary: The Tenth Doctor has been archived into a biometrically identical vessel with a human heart and other human parts. He's worked out everything but the impossible bits, but he hasn't quite figured out how to empathize or deal with his human body reacting outside his conscious control.

As Rose slumped forward into a partial faint, his body, this bloody useless marionette he'd been battling all day, sprang into action.Read more... )

Yes, I know it is late. But it is also...really long. Two chapters in one, almost. Enjoy.

Summary: The Tenth Doctor has been archived into a biometrically identical vessel with a human heart and other human parts. He's worked out everything but the impossible bits, but he hasn't caught Rose up on any of it, yet. Rose is understandably confused.

“I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”

On the far side of a proper promenade, they located a row of quaint bather's accommodations, changing huts, each fully plumbed with shower and toilet. Rose laid claim to one, guarding the entrance while the Doctor and her mother explored the interior. Read more... )

Summary: The Tenth Doctor has been archived into a biometrically identical vessel. He's worked out everything but the impossible bits and now has to work out what to do next.

The smelling salts worked a treat. His eyes popped open, burned like the dickens and started watering. He pushed Jackie away from him. Once the noxious vapors cleared his head, it took the Doctor .248 seconds to work out what had happened. Well, everything but the impossible bits and those could wait. He'd been archived. Successfully, it seemed, because .248 seconds was a respectable mental response time for a post-regeneration calculation.

I heard this song for the first time on Monday's The Voice and I thought it could have been written by a Doctor/Rose fan after JE. I would love to do a vid to it. But I would love even more if one of the extraordinarily talented vidders I know would do one. Humans R Superior would rock it. Or Seduff. Or Bunny! SIGH!

Beta: Not at this time. Eventually.

Warning: This is not a Ten2 story. He is gone, but, not forgotten, exactly.

Author's Notes: Once upon a time, a long time before Journey's End, I wrote a story called “What Wild Geese Know” that featured Ten and Rose starting out to be normal people like...well...everyone has now imagined Ten2 and Rose to be. But then Journey's End happened and I lost all taste for my favorite show. But still, I wanted to finish my Wild Geese 2 story idea. This story is going to take some of those ideas and work them around with a bit of what is happening with the Moffat/Matt series of Doctor Who thrown in to the mix, because I can't ignore that canon, I just can't.

Summary: There are a lot of unanswered questions in New Who. Loopholes in the plot that are shouted out loud. “Why did the TARDIS door close?” for example. Who closed it? Why did all time lines end with Donna? Who was that woman who warned Wilf? What caused that explosion on the TARDIS during the Tenth Doctor's regeneration? And when did the Doctor become such a helpless child, so afraid of endings? Of course, it may never be connected by canon. But I will connect it all here. The explosion on the TARDIS was the start of another story, in another universe. This is that tale.

Disclaimer: I own nothing associated with Doctor Who. This is simply a way to pay homage to characters I love and wish to preserve in my mind.

NOTE:The LJ formatting looks awful to me, but others seem okay with it. Perhaps the fault lies with my browser. If you use Google Chrome and this fic is all squashed together, let me know. 

I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
