Doctor Who: The Bright Asylum

By bowtiedbunny

Scifi / Adventure

Part One: The Return: Prologue


A familiar wheeze resounds through the half-melted halls of Gallifrey’s Citadel, drawing the Time Lords out from their broken shells of complacency.

Like before, the Chancellory Guards come to investigate.

Also like before, the Blue Box materializes, leaving streaks in the vision of the unwary who look upon her before she’s quite dressed.

Unlike before, the Lord President comes to greet the owner of the Box, wearing skinny jeans, a hoodie. The Sash of Rassilon rings his shoulder and waist; a week’s worth of stubble graces his short chin.

He waits for the doors to open, unwilling to give even an inch, a single meter to the Box’s owner in this instance.

The two doors creak; stout boots fill his view. He moves up. Trousers, tweed and dress shirt follow. Soon a whole body with hair and everything escapes the double entrance.

There is a bowtie, he realizes, shuddering. The thing is green with red stripes.

“Did you just come back from fucking Christmas or something? You look like a donkey’s arse.”

The owner of the Box just smiles, his sunken green eyes taking in the shining length of the Sash and the bedraggled man upon whose shoulder it hangs from.

“Not exactly, but close enough. Let me guess… you stole it from his cold dead hands,” the owner of the Box murmurs as he smacks a hand across the Lord President’s back then grips him briefly by a bicep.

“No. he gave it to me. As a birthday present. And, oh look,” the Lord President says, waving off his guards long enough to glare. “I’m bigger than you. Get in my belly.”

“Not hardly. But then, I’m usually the one playing bottom, at least in the fanfics.”

The man who is Lord President rolls his shoulders and smirks.

"You mean those... things where you get pregnant with my love child whilst I deal with my repressed issues by slaughtering all the cute fuzzy animals? Perhaps we should discuss exactly which of us would over a cuppa?”

The owner of the Box smiles and waves his arm in the direction of a scorched hallway.

“Lead on, Koschei,” he says, stuffing a jelly baby in the closest guard’s gaping mouth as they walk hand in hand toward the Lord President’s rooms.

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

PaulSenkel: A real page-turner. The main character takes getting used to which retrospectively is a good thing. Harry evolves quite a lot and the more you read the more you appreciate his intelligence.The setting is special to say the least. Imagine you have enough money so that everybody can have all they ...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
