The Doctor Continues

By GamingPuppy

Adventure / Scifi

Meeting Madrelir.

“Now that...was a way to make an exit,” The Doctor chuckles, flipping switches and clicking buttons as he escapes yet another dangerously fun situation, somehow involving a Zygon. Sighing, he sits back breathing gently as he waits for ‘Sexy’ to land him somewhere else, hopefully somewhere safe yet enjoyable. Suddenly, he hears an odd screech and a quiet thump, so standing, he walks down one of the many hallways inside the T.A.R.D.I.S. opening a door right into a strange looking cinema he’d not been in before, ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’, running quietly in the background.

Walking slowly to the middle row and column, the Doctor stops, staring at the screen as if paying attention to the movie, even though he’s simply waiting for the stranger, a seemingly young human woman to speak. When she does, the Doctor becomes more confused than before. “I...am alone,” the girl murmurs, barely loud enough for anyone to hear over the movie, “I am...lost. The Doctor simply nods, turning to the girl, “Like I once was.”

She turned to him, tilting her head for a moment before speaking clearly, “I am Madrelir, from what once was the planet Procyon. My people were destroyed by a race filled with such rage, there was not a single Procyonian that could save themselves.” She pauses momentarily, lip quivering as she keeps herself from showing emotion, “Those horrid /monsters/ destroyed my planet forcing me into living my eternity alone.”

The Doctor grimaced at that, sure he already knew who she was referring to, but oh how wrong he was. Madrelir looks down at herself, eyes widening as she noticed her state of dress. “I’m wearing a cloth,” she said as if shocked by the sheet and not what was under it.

She stood, letting the covering drop from her six-foot-tall body, revealing an extremely non-human form. Her cheeks are razor sharp, neck model thin and her hair, a sun darkened blonde running river long, all the way to the bottom of her back. To the Doctor’s relief, the Procyonian is wearing a green spacesuit with a blue collar, although because it was skintight, it left nothing to either of their imaginations.

“You seem quite human for an alien,” The Doctor quips, trying to break the ice and chuckling as she replies, “So do you.” After a few moments of silence, Madrelir walks out to the console, looking over the controls before pushing a lever above her head, smiling as the Doctor rushes over, about to scold her. “Leaving the brakes on is horrible on inner mechanisms that are difficult to fix unless you go to a specific time and place, but you can’t when said mechanisms are broken.”

The Doctor frowns, walking to the side of the walkway, peeking under the console and giving a little noise of surprised confirmation, pushing himself back up before asking, “How exactly did you know that?” Madrelir shrugs, giving the Doctor an almost condescending look, “My people had already learned and updated Gallifreyan by the time the human wheel was invented.”

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

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...

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

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

rudyoxborough46: An action-packed, mystical adventure awaits anyone wishing to read this novel. I’m amazed at how well you’ve managed to flesh out the characters in this book, and I hope to read more of your work.I’ve read books about goblins and elves and all that mumbo-jumbo before, and most accounts of these c...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.

This is gr...

Melissa Davis: Interesting book and an enjoyable read. Had something different to it, that made me glad I picked it up.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep!

I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...
