Stalking Time #4

Title: Matters of the Heart
Incarnation: Fourth
Card: Ace of Cups

The Doctor lay on the floor of the TARDIS, breathing heavily. The wound was deeper than it seemed, causing agonizing pain but not enough to trigger the regeneration process.
His assistants went about the rooms, looking for anything that they could use to staunch the blood flow.

He was adamant about not using the great length of his scarf, citing some sort of sentimental attachment. K-9 was nearby, monitoring the Doctor.

“Master?” The metal whine of the robotic dog came from nowhere.
“Yes, K-9,” the Doctor gasped, still clutching his chest.
“Your hearts appear fine. Would you like me to cauterize your wound?”
“Oh, yes. Bless your wonderful machinery!”
By the time the rest of the crew had returned, the Doctor was up, leaning up against the TARDIS controls. “Would you like a jelly baby?”

Stalking Time #3

Title: What is Humanity?
Incarnation: Eighth
Card: Temperance

“Now that we’re not running for our lives, I’ve been meaning to ask you a question, Doctor.”

The Doctor looked up from the controls of the Tardis, “Yes?”

“Just what did you mean when you said you were half-human.? Is that true?”

He just smiled a half-smile before moving about the controls, flicking switches and pressing buttons without a second thought.

“It’s probably easier to show you. Trust me, there are just some things that are just best left unmired in popular parlance. It’s more of a feeling than an actuality. I love this planet and all the people on it. Your race just manages to make the time they have and turn it into such amazing things.”
