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.

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?

cakezombie29: I loved this book and from the moment I picked it up, it physically pained me to put it down.

Nida Bhounr: the story line , the plot the way it was written, it was just wow. i enjoyed it to the end thinking that Alex really was the guilty person but the twist at the end was nail biting. very enjoyable. and i would love to read the other sibling stories too. looking forward to it.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.

Marimar Amieva: I strongly agree with all the reviews below.

johansp: A compelling story that quickly became a pageturner for me.The reader gets dragged into the horrors of war in a realistic way.

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.
