Part 7

“Within the sound of silence.”


“Come on, Donna, stay with me.”  Martha was frantic as Donna fainted against the wall that she had been leaning against, and she noticed the dried blood that seemed to have come from a very nasty looking bruise on Donna’s left temple.

Part 6

Still remains…”

The Doctor and Donna rested for about twenty minutes before they felt the pressing need to get moving once more.  The feel of the ship had begun to subtly change around them and the Doctor knew that they couldn’t delay much longer.


They didn’t speak much as they made their way towards the lower levels where the entrance to the temporal core could be found.  The Doctor had to lower Donna a few times from an upper level as the stairs leading from one level to the next had collapsed into the darkness below.

Part 5


"And the vision that was planted in my brain..."

The corridors began to slowly change around them as they made their way towards the center of the Tardis, the long walls gradually giving way to large open spaces and catwalks that crisscrossed over yawning chasms beneath.

Donna had always known, in a sort of abstract way, that the Tardis was immense but she had never imagined just how massive the ship truly could be. The Doctor was leading the way now, as they entered parts of the ship that Donna had never visited and they had had to turn back several times as the catwalks in front of them had collapsed into the emptiness below.

"Doctor, you never explained to me why I would see the both of you at that specific time in your lives. It's strange that after you had so recently told me about the visions that you had experienced at the untempered schism, I would then be sucked into a memory that touched on that specific event."

The Doctor looked back at Donna, his smile was faint and tinged with the pain that he was struggling with as well from his own injuries. His gaze wandered through the aura around her body for a moment, reminding her with a jolt of his younger self and how that man child had seen so much in so little time.

Part 4

Left its seeds while I was sleeping…”

Donna remained crouched among the gently waving red grass, her fingers flexing involuntarily into the strangely firm ground beneath her.  She knew that Gallifrey had been destroyed by the Doctor at the end of the Time War and there was no way that she could have actually travelled to the planet, but that didn’t explain the vision around her.


She’d remembered how Gallifrey had looked in the Doctor’s memories and this matched those memories perfectly, but it was the scents and sounds that were intoxicating on a completely different level.  She could feel a strange hum through the ground, similar to the hum that she had always felt aboard the Tardis and it was that hum that finally convinced her that she was still somehow in the Tardis.


“This has to be a dream.”  Donna’s hand rose to her temple as a pain suddenly lanced through her temple, she felt the world shift and tilt sideways before slowly righting itself.  She was definitely in rough shape and the strange sensations floating through the air around her were not helping restore her shattered equilibrium.


Maybe that wave had knocked her unconscious and she was even now lying in the corridor while the world disintegrated around the both of them.  With a panicked cry, she jumped to her feet and looked around for the Doctor.

Part 3

“Because a vision softly creeping…”


The corridors of the Tardis were eerily dark as the Doctor led the way from the control room.  He squinted first down one turn then another before he rummaged through his voluminous pockets in order to pull out two torches.


Donna took the torch that the Doctor handed to her, her gaze following his as they decided against going down any side corridors and continued down the corridor that they had originally entered.


She could feel the Doctor’s mind brushing against hers from time to time, most likely trying to see what she was seeing, but not wishing to subject her to further strain.  Donna was finding it hard to focus down the dimly lit corridors, and she couldn’t tell if the shimmering she saw in her vision was due to the damage the Tardis had endured or if it was just another sign of her concussion.


“So how can you be sure that this multiphasic what’s it is what’s truly wrong with the Tardis, Doctor?”

Part 2

"I've come to talk with you again..."

~~~

A voice was whispering in her mind.


Donna groaned softly as she began the arduous process of swimming up through the heavy layers of unconsciousness; layers that seemed determined she stay immersed deeply where it was cool and safe.

It was hard to focus on any single sensation as her entire body seemed to be throbbing in pain of some kind or another, but it was the pounding in her head that gave her the most concern.  She tried to raise her hand to touch her temple and that was when she became aware of the hand that she had been tightly clutching.

“Donna.  Please wake up, Donna.  I can’t do much more for you until I can stabilize the Tardis.”

Part 1



Something was burning.

Donna groaned as she tried to blink her eyes open, but the pounding in her head kept her from moving too quickly.  She lay still trying to take stock of her injuries, the blinding headache and sense of motion even as she was laying still made her realize she most likely had a concussion at the very least.


She took a deep breath, willing the pounding of her head to subside as she systematically began to wiggle her fingers and toes.  Her breath hitched with the pain that shot through her left thigh, but thankfully the pain quickly subsided into a dull throb.

This is second story in the Phoenix Universe. A little short story between She Burns and the next big story arc that I have planned for this universe. All you need to know so far is that the Doctor managed to save Donna from burning as a result of the metacrisis, Donna now has telepathy and the ability to see disturbances in time much like a Time Lord. Oh, and the Doctor and Donna have been married since the Metacrisis due to the bond that was formed between the two of them in that instant. Oh yeah, and she can hear the Tardis now as well. I think I've about summed it up in a nutshell.

This story was inspired by the song the Sound of Silence and the Star trek the Next generation episode "Timescape" as well as the Doctor Who Episode "Journey to the Centre of the Tardis" I know quite a mash up there, but it all seemed to fit together in my head into this story. Welcome back and I hope you enjoy the ride!

“Hello Darkness, my old friend….”


It was supposed to have been a quick stop to pick up new space suits in preparation for a little trip with Donna’s grandfather, Wilf.  Since the Doctor’s only suit had been ruined with the destruction of Bowie Base one, a trip to the future had become a necessity.



The Doctor had been adamant that it would be just a quick trip off the Tardis and then they would be on their way once more.  Donna should have known better than to believe that anything could ever be simple where the Doctor was concerned.


“Donna, look out!”


The Doctor’s shout caused Donna to instinctively throw herself to the side, narrowly avoiding the blaster bolt that had been aimed at her retreating figure.  She ducked behind a pitted wall, her breath exploding through parted lips as the Doctor pounded past her.


He held a large bag that was filled with helmets and various other items while she clutched four orange spacesuits to her chest.  It was the forty-fourth century and the Tardis had landed on the third moon of Kalifa where an earth mining colony had been set up several centuries before.


The Doctor had expounded on how the colony had been a shining example of humanity’s ability to adapt to new environments and set aside deep seated racial prejudices to build a better, more integrated society.  Instead of finding a futuristic utopia, they had stepped out of the Tardis into a war zone.


“I don’t know why I’m still surprised when everything goes wrong, Doctor.  I swear the Tardis seems to enjoy not going where you want her to.”
