Lucid Dreamer

The wind began to get stronger, howling around them, whipping up the sand and blowing Elle’s long dark hair into her face.

“Where are you going?” asked the Doctor.

“I don’t know! It doesn’t matter does it? Nothing we do here seems to matter or make sense.”

“Just wait! Stop a moment, you’re just babbling. There’s no point in you just wandering off.”

“Well where am I supposed to go?” she asked on the verge of tears. “You’ve never even explained who you are. How do I know you’re not some homicidal maniac, playing with my mind?”

She turned away from him.

“Look, I’m no threat to you. I only want to help and get back to my ship. Come on…you can trust me, I’m the Doctor,” he replied with a grin, holding his arms out wide in a gesture of honesty.

“Alright,” Elle answered, wiping her eyes with the back of her hand. She glanced back up at him, the corners of her mouth showing the beginnings of a smile. “I suppose you’re all I’ve got at the moment.”

“It will be fine. We will work something out in the end. We just need to gather our resources.”

He held out his hand, she took it.

“What do you mean?”

“You remember someone following you, asking questions, right?”

“Yeah, and?”

“I keep seeing reminders of the past. There has to be a reason. This can’t be real.”

The Bazaar Truth

This may count as my shortest 11th doctor story….
“What’s this,” exclaimed Amy, holding up the bright red fez she had found masquerading as a flowerpot.
“I wondered where that went,” replied the Doctor snatching it from her hands and placing it carefully on his head.
“Ah-ha, no. You are not wearing that.”
“I’d look odd without it….I’m a master of disguise”
“Here?” asked Rory, finally getting a word in edgeways.
“Here,” he opened the doors of the TARDIS to reveal a bustling alien Baazaar, “just a small pit stop, need to pick up one small item-,”
The Doctor rushed off into the crowds without finishing his thought calling back, “Oh and stay there I’ll only be a minute!”

Two minutes later……

The Doctor ran through the market clutching a small metal lamp in his arms, and apologizing as he bashed into the milling people, trying to ignore the shouts of his pursuers. He spotted the TARDIS, Amy and Rory standing in front of it and hearing Amy mention the word “shopping”.
“Into the TARDIS! Now!'” the Doctor yelled as a bolt of light from a gun scythed through the air vaporizing his fez. “Not another one” he grumbled under his breath.

Inside the TARDIS…

“A lamp!” exclaimed Amy.
“A magic one,” he replied patting his head with a look of consternation on his face, “doesn’t feel right now, hats…hats are the future. I need a new hat…Rory pass me that box over there.”
He pointed to a blue and white striped hat box that seemed to have always been there and yet definitely wasn’t a moment ago. Rory obeyed without thinking and passed it over.
“A magic lamp? Who do you think you are Aladdin?” asked Amy continuing the conversation despite the Doctor rummaging inside the apparently bottomless box.
The Doctor looked up momentarily from his search, “well-,”
“River was right…its always you. What!?”
This last exclamation was prompted by the Doctor placing a be-feathered cavalier hat on his head.
“Snazzy eh?”
“You are NOT wearing that!”

Mission to the Moon

The Doctor and Rose in a space whodunit.

Kenkal Mission Control on Craydor-San Prime, a planet in the Zenzak System

The control room was a hive of activity. Technicians bustled about, passing memos and typing furiously on their consoles. Commander Grevlanrich could hardly hear himself think over the din of excited chatter, which filled the room. He leaned over the shoulder of Chief Technician Acacia Lenk his huge form casting her in shadow as he squinted at the screen. He needed glasses, but was too proud to wear them while his peers were watching. Instead he leaned even closer to the screen so as to read the information displayed.

“Are you sure of your facts Lenk,” he grumbled, “This is a very important and expensive mission. I can’t have anything go wrong this time.”

“I sure, sir. All the computers read ready for launch,” she replied.

“Glad to hear it. But we must always double check. Computers can be wrong. You may start launch procedure.”

“Affirmative, sir.”

She pulled the microphone attached to her headset down so it was level with her mouth and pressed the green button, which would start the launch procedure.

“Attention. Attention launch procedure has been initiated. Please make your way to your assigned positions.”

Grevlanrich stood in front of the screen showing the launch pad, his hands behind his back and head up. He was cautiously optimistic. Last cycle’s attempt had been a disaster. Sabotage by a dissenting faction had resulted in the destruction of an expensive ship and the death of Craydor-San’s best astronauts. This time they wouldn’t find it so easy. Security had been stepped up two hundred percent and everyone involved in the project had been security checked, even the cleaners and caterers. It was the Commander’s last chance to get the colonising project off the ground before he was forced to retire. At the moment only a small group of scientists lived in the Craydor-San Luna complex, but soon they would extend the research facility to encompass enough room for a small colony to live and work. He glanced at the clock showing the countdown, only a minute now before lift off and hopefully success.

Everyone was tense. They were more nervous about this launch that they were the first time. They were all afraid that history would repeat itself.

“30 seconds till lift off,” said Chief Technician Lenk, her voice ringing out around the base. She tapped the console nervously. The seconds ticked away slowly as if trying to prolong the anticipation.

“20 seconds till lift off-,” She checked the readings again. All systems were still fine.

“10 Seconds, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…we have lift off.”
