Goodnight, Sarah Jane. I’m sorry that you couldn’t be here with us to see 50th anniversary. [x]
Aw, the feels… <3
I’ve really gone and done it this time, I’m afraid.
For obvious reasons.
The manipulation and colouring is all mine.
And one day Sarah Jane went to the National Gallery, and Sky wandered off with Clyde and Rani… or had Sarah Jane wandered off from them? No matter. She followed a few twists and turns, sonic-lipsticked her way through some doors which may have read “staff only” because the kids really didn’t seem to be anywhere she could see…
And then she saw it, parked in a corner. She could almost have mistaken it for modern art, except, well… it was humming. Sarah Jane Smith knew that hum. She dreamed about it sometimes. A docent approached her and asked, with pointed politeness, if she was authorized to be there.
"Sarah Jane Smith, journalist." She flashed an ID. "I’m doing a story on the unseen side of the Gallery. I was wondering if I might have a word with the curator about this piece? It’s very interesting."
"Hold on a moment, I’ll fetch him."
As soon as the docent was gone, Sarah Jane tiptoed up to the TARDIS door and knocked. “Doctor?” she called, trying to keep her voice down. A few more quick, urgent raps on the door. “Doctor, are you in there?”
"You know," a voice intoned behind her, "there is an official policy against touching the art."
Sarah Jane froze. That voice. That voice sounding out against the hum of the TARDIS— was this a dream after all? Had she fallen asleep? But no, she couldn’t have, she remembered waking up in the morning, driving here, looking at the art, losing the kids, every step of it.
"Oh, don’t worry," that voice continued, "I’ve never been much for official policies, myself."
There were already tears in her eyes when she turned around. It was and was not quite the face she’d expected to see, stooped and white-haired and older…
"And what’s a little harmless rule-breaking between friends? Eh, Sarah?"
Her hesitance vanished the moment he grinned.
He’s back! Welcome back, calming cat. You are always welcome here.
Everyone should know of calming cat.
*leaves this here and flees*
ALERT ALERT EMERGENCY FEELS. COMMENCE CURLING INTO A BALL.
Shame to think this never happened on screen… XD
I think Six has skyrocketed up my list of favorite Doctors
During the excitement of the 50th, let’s not forget those who unfortunately cannot be here to celebrate it with us.
Capaldi and Coleman will be so Baker and Sladen I’m gonna cry.
OMG, I just told my dad the same thing! *weeps inconsolably*
