Daughters of Galifrey, Volume 1

By PepperminPatti

Action / Scifi

Sonics

I sit at my desk, admiring my new bedroom. It's the shaped like a rectangle, with the east and west walls longer than the north and south walls. The walls themselves are the color of cream and have butterflies on it. The carpet is black, but with rainbow polka dots. I remember seeing something like this in a store, and falling in love with it. On the west wall is my bed. It's a loft bed, and has a desk underneath. There's drawers in the wall, and they hold supplies for various crafts. There's also a computer, but it wont turn east wall of my room has a bookshelf and a pink bean bag chair. On the south wall, there's the door to my closet. The closest connects to Camilla's room. On the North wall is a giant mirror. Next to it as a remote, and when I press a button, The mirror becomes a window, and I can see outside. As far as I know, Camilla and my rooms are the only ones in the TARDIS with a window.

I walk out the door to go exploring. I go down the hall, and find a giant library, and it reminds me of the Beast's Library in my favorite Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast. Bit there's a strange shimmer in the room, and I find a swimming pool. A swimming pool in a Library? I decide to go back to my room. I feel like drawing more than reading or swimming.

Once I enter my room, I see a golden shimmer on my desk, next to the computer. I walk toward it, and it looks like The Doctor's sonic screwdriver. But instead of a navy blue light bulb on the end, and a silver body, the light bulb on this one is a teal,with a golden body. The Doctor must have an extra. I grab the sonic screwdriver and go into the main room.

The Doctor is under the cockpit, trying to get the Time Lord radar to stop beeping. The first thing we did once we got inside was to add a DNA sample, so the TARDIS would recognize us.

" Doctor?" I ask.

" Yeas Amara?" He responds. " As soon as I get this radar to stop beeping, we'll go somewhere, I promise."

" How do you know that its not picking up more Time Lords?" I ask.

" Because if it picked up traces of a Time Lord, than the TARDIS would take us right now, like it did with you. A-ha, got it ." He explains. The beeping stops.

" Doctor, do you have a backup sonic screwdriver?" I ask.

The Doctor looks at me with a puzzled expression. " I only have one sonic, why?" He asks.

" Because I found this on my desk." I hand him the screwdriver.

"Amara? Where did you find this screwdriver?" He asks me, his brown eyes staring into my hazel ones.

" Iii fouund it on my dessk." I tell him. At this moment, Camilla comes in, holding a nearly identical screwdriver, but with a magenta light and a yellow body. The Doctor looks as well.

" Doctor?" Camilla asks. " Do you have a backup sonic?"

" No." The Doctor says. I see the thoughts flowing through his head. " Those sonics aren't mine. They're yours."

"No way." I say. " I get a sonic screwdriver?"

" You have one too?" Camilla asks. I hold my sonic screwdriver up.

" What does this button do?" I ask, as a press one of the buttons. The teal bulb lights up, and one of circular lights on the side of the TARDIS explodes. I quickly put the sonic screwdriver down on the cockpit, only to have it roll of.

" Nice job, especially for a first-timer." He tells me, as he goes to fix the light. " Don't worry about the light, the first time I used a sonic, I blew up house five miles away." He takes a minute to fix the light. Then he turns to us. "How about I give you two a few lessons?"

Dru83: This is probably the fourth time I've read this one. I read this a few times on fictionpress as dru83. This is a wonderful story.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters. This made the story thrilling and made me suspicious of everything and everyone. You have a great style of writing – one which captiva...

Grace Mendoza: It took me around 3-4 days to finish reading this story and it feels like I'm watching a movie while reading this.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

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...
