Two of the Same, Yet Different

By Meggan Grayson

Action

1. Found.

Time-Lady Doctor (Italics means people are speaking in gallifreyan.)
I am the last time-lady and my name is The Doctor. One day I was parked in space with Arthur and Rachel Pond, my companions, when I got a psychic container. I thought I was the last one so, I followed the signal to a mirror dimension. I found Auntie, Uncle, Iris, nephew, and the man who turned out to be my TARDIS.
He died an hour later with my Ponds, it was my fault, and I shouldn't have come here with them. When house started to eat my TARDIS, he had them trap me and put me in a cage. Little did I know that I would be here for a long time. House decided to experiment on me, that's how I ended up strapped to a table with minor blood loss, on the first week. I thought I was going to die with someone who didn't care that I was in pain. Until, they came -the Doctor, Amy, and Rory- and saved me.
I was stuck on the floor of my cell, bleeding once more -you would think it was a habit-, when Iris was dumped in. She looked at me with worry and started screaming thief. Iris started to put pressure on stab wound nephew had given me. I could see little black spots floating in my vision, by the time the alternate me showed up. He rushed to unlock the cell door, and attempted to stop the bleeding with his sonic, "What's your name?" he asked after a while. "I'm...The...Doctor" I managed to get out. He looked surprised, "Do you know which regeneration you are? Where you are? Who I am?" "Eleven, Bubble world, and …time lord." he nodded and said "I am The Doctor, and I am sorry, so sorry." He had stopped to bleeding but, in the process got my blood on his shirt and hands. How could he be me….
Time-Lord Doctor
Blood, so much blood and I can't let her die, she's me from another world. I stopped the bleeding, but she lost too much blood. I need to get her back to the TARDIS, with Amy and Rory on board, if I want to save her, Shes losing consciousness quick.
Time skip to the end of the episode still Time-Lord Doctor POV
"RORY, I need your help." I yelled. As I pulled of my jacket. "She's lost so much blood, she needs a transfusion, now." I started to roll up one of my sleeves as I ran over to the console to get first aid kit.
I have given her as much blood as I can. I don't know if it was enough to save her. "Doctor, who is she?" asked Amy. "She is me, from another dimension, and before you ask, different dimension." "If she is you from another dimension, then where are Rory and I." I couldn't answer that, I didn't know, even if I did know I wouldn't answer.
The Ponds went to bed soon after, leaving me by myself with her.
"Ponds, I am sorry, I am so, so sorry. I couldn't get to you in time. I am sorry." Someone screamed from above. I rushed up to the console to see her sitting by the door hugging her legs to her chest, rocking back and forth, crying and screaming. As I grew nearer she started to hyperventilate and scream louder. I could hear running coming from the corridor. "You're safe, here on the TARDIS with us." She slowly started to stop screaming and hyperventilating, but still was rocking and crying. Amy and Rory came sliding to a stop in the console room and asked what was going on. I gave them a pointed look and moved closer to her.
When I got close enough, I pulled her into my arms and began to comfort her. "Arthur, Rachel, my Ponds. I couldn't save you. I wish I was in your place, I am so sorry." she said, one last time. The Ponds looked sorry for her, I felt bad for her too, her Ponds were dead, they died in that pocket universe.
"She has nowhere to go, Ponds, her dimension is sealed off from ours." I said as the Ponds asked what we were going to do with her. We had go to the newly completed kitchen to talk, after I made a room for her. I heard someone running and stumbling down the corridor outside, it sounded like they were running from something. The person slid to a stop in front of the kitchen door and slowly started to open it, it was her. "Do you have a Zero room?" she said, able to speak english again. I nodded and said "Follow me."
"They don't seem to like me. Did you tell them? Do they blame me?" she said. I stopped and looked at her and said "They are just confused, and no I didn't tell them, but they are wondering." "Are you going to tell them?" "No, not yet. What should we call you any way? Can't have two Doctors running around." "Theta" I nodded, surprised.
We rounded the corner and walked down two doors and turned to the door on the left. "Zero room." "Thank you, not just for this, but for everything." she said, looking down at her feet. She was still in what we found her in, blood stains and all. "Out of curiosity, how long were you there?" "I ummm…" she mumbled something. "What?" "Three years, and had guilt thrown at me everyday for that three years, and I started hallucinating." My eyes widened, "Like right now, my Ponds are standing behind you." I turned and looked over my shoulder and saw nothing. She gave me one last look and walked into the Zero room.
"Ponds, I have something to tell you." They nod and I continue, "You asked where you were. Well I am going to tell you ok. Promise not to judge her." More nodding. "Ok, well, her Ponds were killed, like you almost were. She was there for three years, and had guilt thrown at her everyday, and then, she started hallucinating about her Ponds. That's why she will be staying. If I just drop her wherever and leave. She would probably just go insane." They nodded sadly and bid me goodnight.

TruffleQueen: This piece of writing is more than just letters across a screen. Its more than just 40 chapters. Its a different world. And in that world, you get to experience so many things. I mean, you're practically sucked in there and once you just keep reading it gets harder and harder to get out. This st...

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

wendy94: Loved this book!! The characters were great! Loved the descriptions of how the new world was described. I was sad when the book ended. I can't wait for the next book to come out. Thank you for sharing your story!

dragonswilleise: I loved this book, it was nearly impossible to put down from start to finish. It was fast passed without being overwhelming and slowed down where needed. Overall this was an amazing novel that I will definitely recommend to others.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

H. J. Huser: When you requested I take a look at your novel in exchange for looking at mine, I had only expected to read the first chapter. because Sci-Fi is not my favorite genre. I did, however, enjoy this. I really enjoyed it. You do have a few spelling and grammar mistakes somewhere within the story. I ca...

frigidfallacy: I gotta say, this was one helluva ride. I loved it. And I loved the plot even more since it was related to Colors (I've also been working on a story which involves it). You've done well to make me hungry for more out of this story! I'd definitely recommend it to teens who read from the fantasy ge...

nicolehodgek: It was very interesting the sex like did get more intense but I would of hoped she gave her virginity to at least Aaron or Dylan before she left to save them both. But as far as that goes I'm interested in reading the next book, if there is more to come.
