doctor/tardis on top of the world

for couples_therapy: Distance

She's far away.

She's far away though right across the room.

Though right across the room, he can still feel the distance.

He can still feel the distance when they're together.

When they're together, holding hands, everything should be all right.

Holding hands, everything should be all right but it isn't.

But it isn't and he's slowly working out what's changed.

And he's slowly working out what's changed (It's probably her, he figures).

It's probably him, he figures. He's always been the one who changes.

He's always been the one who changes. Changes his mind, changes his appearance…

Changes his mind, changes his appearance, she's seen it all.

She's seen it all; she knows what he's like underneath his boyish features and wide grin.

She knows what he's like underneath his boyish features and wide grin and that terrifies him.

And that terrifies him, his own fear of her comprehending him.

His own fear of her comprehending him: Her understanding things he keeps hidden.

Her understanding things he keeps hidden, he keeps them hidden for a reason!

He keeps them hidden for a reason and she whittles away at that wall.

And she whittles away at that wall, destroying every barrier he's ever put up.

Destroying every barrier he's put up, so he builds more.

So he builds more…because he has to

Because he has to keep safe, keep her out, keep her from understanding.

Keep safe, keep her out, keep her from understanding. It's better this way.

It's better this way, she'll understand that eventually.

She'll understand that eventually and then she'll understand everything.

And then she'll understand everything… the thought is somewhat exciting, actually.

The thought is somewhat exciting, actually, though completely terrifying.

Though completely terrifying, and that's what he has to keep in the forefront of his mind

That's what he has to keep in the forefront of his mind; he has to keep himself safe.

Keep himself safe, keep her safe.

Keep her safe, keep her at a distance.

Keep her at a distance until she's far away.

She's far away.

Subject: Fancy a bit of world-saving?

Apparently there's going to be a war between humans and demons and all that. You and your team...er...gang...crew...them! Think you might be interested?

I apologize, but I'm going to have to communicate by email. Rose is unhappy that she's being taken somewhere safe instead. By "unhappy" I mean she'll be unhappy once she finds out.

RP with banished_dame...the fight that no one expected (yeah, right.)

To the Doctor, the argument is moot. Battle between humans and whatever those things are. A war. There is very little in the universe he despises more than war. Bus stations, burnt toast, then war. He isn't entirely fond of unrequited love, either, but war is worse. And Rose wants to go fight. It simply isn't happening.

OOC: Scene completed with the absolutely amazing banished_dame heart-wrenchingly until an ungodly hour last night while the muses went nuts. Enjoy!
doctor/rose shelter from the storm

for albumconcepts: K's Choice "Almost Happy": Somewhere

There's something about this day
That feels a lot like yesterday
Everything looks the same:
The wall, the tv set
The way I move around myself to be
Somewhere over there
Where things just seem to grow
Where somebody seems to know
What they want from me

I never felt like I belonged
To anything or anyone
Still I depend on you
For every single thing
I could be wrong about so much, but
Somewhere over there
Where things just seem to grow
Where somebody seems to know
What they want from me


Following this.

He won the argument, he realized.

She was somewhere else, off in her room. He was in the drive plate room, not even going into the console room out of fear that she'd be right there.
