Title: "We'll Be Okay
Genre: Horror
Author: Gallifrey_Immigrant
Word Count: 562
Characters: Thirteenth Doctor; mention of Twelfth Doctor
Rating/Warnings: None
Spoilers: For the 13th Doctor casting announcement
Summary: Monsters. Late nights. The Doctor, no matter what the form.


Jimmy was closing up shop, happy to finally end this day of work. He didn't really enjoy this job, but ever since he stopped his attempts at a rock band, this had been his main source of income. It was steady work, and his manager promised that when he noticed the strange woman in the corner of the club. She was staring at her reflection, and muttering to herself. Jim figured the woman might be a homeless person. She was dressed in a hoodie and jacket, with blonde hair. Maybe she wanted some shelter. Either way, the woman had to leave. He walked up to her, and tapped her on the shoulder. The woma turned around, and her gaze shocked him. She smiled, but then ignored him, continuing to stare at her reflection.

“Hmm, my boy? No, that voice isn't me. What do you think, Jimmy?” said the woman. Her voice had an some form of English accent, which Jim couldn't place. She spoke his name like they were old friends.

“I don't think much about your voice. I need you to leave, ma'am,” said Jim.

“Ma'am? I haven't been called that in a whle. I think I missed it,” said the woman. She gave Jim her full attention now, sporting a toothy grin. Her hands touched her mouth, and she said “I think that I'm a smiler this time around.”

“Wonderful, ma'am. I need you to leave,” said Jim.

“Why?”

“Well, because the store's hours are over. I'm not sure how you got in here,” said Jim.

“Well, that is not the question—no, no, no! That's not my voice either!” said the woman, shaking her head. She crossed her arms, and tousled her hair, then paused. “Blonde. Looks odd. Also, my name is the Doctor, in case you forgot,” said the woman.

Jim was about to point out that they had never met before, when a loud scream came from outside. Jim jumped, while the girl stayed calm, and looked out the window. Street lights lit up the road. A large shadow covered the ground, like some giant animal was roaming outside.

“Rikos. Creatures with fire in their veins, who hunt in the midnight hour. If you go outside, you'll die,” said the Doctor. She shot up from her sitting position in a flash, and moved to the doors, her ear at the wood.

“Like, magical creatures?” said Jim. He stepped closer to the window, trying to get a better look. A claw ripped at the glass, making him jump.

“Yeah, let's go with magic. It's not magic, but okay, works for me. Jim, it's very important you stay inside. The creatures outside are wild animals from the dark spaces in the world ,” said the Doctor. Her nose sniffed at the door, and her eyes widened. “And these ones are from a very dark space, indeed.”

Small, slithery wisps of blackness crept over the windows. Light slowly disappeared from outside. More screams echoed. Jim backed away from the doors, and jumped when the Doctor grabbed him. She turned him toward her. Her eyes reminded him of a white-haired man who had saved his life, years ago.

“Listen, Jim. We'll be okay. Do you know why?”

“No.”

The sound of glass breaking reverberated through his ears. Something was climbing in. But the woman didn't look afraid.

“Because I'm the Doctor.”

Well, I logged in today to find that Photobucket has blocked all my images, and I've been using them for over a decade. Sooo.... There will be a short period of time this weekend where I will be finding an alternative place for our banners, promo banners and journal info.

Until then please bear with me. If you need a banner and missed it on one of my posts. Please let me know and I'll get that to you.

Thanks,
Your Mod paynesgrey

Title: Survival Lines
Rating: PG
Word Count: 481
Genre: Angst
Characters: Clara, Me, cameo by Eleventh Doctor
Summary: Wrinkles show proof of experience. Clara has no proof.

Marceline traced her fingers on the witch's face. Indeed, no wrinkles.

The witch opened her eyes slowly. She often slept for long.



“Marcy, what's wrong?” asked the witch.

“You do not age, Clara,” said Marcy.

“I never will,” said Clara. She stretched her limbs.

Later

Henry rolled over on the bed. His lover, Clara, looked far away.

“What's wrong, baby?” said Henry. Was she thinking about the Danny she always mentioned in her sleep?

“Nothing,” said Clara. He couldn't tell whether or not she was lying. He never could.

Later

Nessa hid under the floorbeds. She could hear the Nazis outside the house, and prayed that Me or Clara wouldn't give up her husband. Her stomach dropped farther with each footstep.

Somehow understanding, Clara whispered to her “I never will.”

Later (and earlier)

The Doctor hung on the ledge. Clara held out her hand, and he grabbed it.

“Oswald, please don't let go of me!” said the man, his bowtie all askew as he dangled helplessly.

“You know I never will,” quipped Clara. Brave, strong Clara, always hiding her fear. If the Doctor hadn't been scared for his life, he would have cheered her.

Later

“I hate you. You miserable, pretentious immortal. You think just because you're older that you get to be condescending to everyone else,” said Clara to Me. She stormed off, leaving Me to nurse her drink.

“Do you want to leave me?” asked Me. A surprising amount of emotion was in the statement.

Clara didn't respond.

Later

The answer was no,” said Clara.

Me and her were locked in a dark room. The guards had locked away the key. Unfortunately, the plague that had crept through the countryside meant that the two immortals were probably going to be stuck here for a long time. Perhaps forever.

Answer to what?” asked Me sharply. In the dark, with her anti-radiation cloak, she looked like a fairy.

Whether or not I would leave you. I never would,” said Clara.

Me stared straight at Clara for some time. Then, Me grinned slowly.

Yes you would. But thank you,” said Me.

Later

The crew excavating the site of the Orion Wars had found only two corpses. Both were young humanoid woman of unknown physiology, whose bodies were in qurantine. Billy had been dared by his classmates to check the bodies.

He crept down into where the bodies were. He was looking at them, when one opened their eyes.

“Hi. I'm Clara.”

“Ahh! What are you?” said Billy.

“Old ladies,” said the other young girl.

Later

Billy traced his fingers on the zombie's face. Nope, no wrinkles.

The zombie opened her eyes slowly. She often slept for long..

“Marcy, what's wrong?” asked the zombie. She frowned. “I mean Billy.”

“You don't age, Clara,” said Billy.

“I never will,” said Clara. She stretched her limbs.
