Just A Bit Unlikely….
Summary: Rose did what The Doctor failed to do. She saved The Master and cured the drums. Now, The Master is a companion and when they bump into Donna Noble, you can bet that trouble will follow. But what happens when The Doctor returns, along with familiar enemies and friends? Sequel to Just One Second. AU of series 4 with a sarcastic Master.
Disclaimer: I DO NOT OWN DOCTOR WHO!
A/N: HELLO EVERYONE! Been a long time, I know. But good news though! The Sequel is finally here. Now, before we get started; I'm not gonna do The Voyage of The Damned, only because I really don't see how Rose could make such a huge difference than The Doctor, even though Kylie was amazing in it. Plus, I really want to get to Donna meeting The Master.
And just a warning, this chapter might be short….
Anyway, enough talking. Let's start the show!
Songs for the chapter:
- Thalia's Story (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters soundtrack)
- The Life and Death of Amy Pond (Doctor Who: series 5 soundtrack)
Prologue: Time Crash
"Who the hell are you?" The Doctor asked, looking the strange woman up and down.
Rose just blinked. "Which Doctor are you?"
The Doctor frowned. "I'm the fifth. But who are you?"
Rose gapped at the man. "The Doctor wore a cricket outfit and a…. celery stick….Really?"
The Doctor glared at her. "Who are you?" he demanded. "And how are you flying my Tardis!"
Rose bit her lip. "I'm not sure if I should say. Could disrupt the time lines and everything but why are you wearing a celery stick? They should be used for eating not being a decorative item," she said.
"Shut up! There is something wrong with my Tardis and I've got to do something about it very, very quickly, and it would help, it really would help, if there wasn't some blonde ape who doesn't know what she's talking about, ranting in my face about everything that happens in front of her!" The Doctor snapped.
Rose blinked again. When The Doctor was talking about his past regenerations, he wasn't kidding when he said he was rude before. But this takes the cake.
"Sorry, Doctor," she replied quietly, looking down at the grated floor.
The Doctor nodded. "Thank you," he said after a pause and turned to the console. He frowned. "What have you done to my Tardis? You've changed the desktop theme... what is this one then, coral?"
Rose shrugged. "I didn't even know that the Tardis had a desktop theme change!" she defended herself.
The Doctor grimace. "It's worse than the leopard skin," he complained making Rose giggle quietly.
She then noticed that he pulled out half-moon glasses and put them on. "You still have glasses? Even from way back? I'm getting good blackmail today."
The Doctor gave her a look. "I need them," he explained.
Rose snorted. "You only wear them to make you look smart."
"I do not!"
"You do too!"
Just then alarms started to ring.
"That's an alert. Level five. Indicates a temporal collision. It's like two Tardis's have merged, but there's definitely only one Tardis present. Looks like two time zones at war in the heart of the Tardis. That's a paradox. Could blow a hole in the space time continuum the size of..."
Rose moved to the monitor and pushed it towards the fifth Doctor.
"…...Well, actually, the exact size of Belgium. That's a bit undramatic, isn't? Belgium?" he asked Rose.
Rose pulled out her sonic in reply. "You need this?"
The Doctor shook his head. "No, I'm fine."
Rose huffed. "Even back then and you still don't ask for help when you need it," she muttered under her breath.
The Doctor looked at Rose with a tiny frown on his face. "Who are you?"
Rose just smirked. "Why don't you find out?"
The Doctor's eyes widened in shock. "You're not…."
Rose continued to smirk. "Yep."
"You can't be…"
"But I am…"
"…. A fan!"
Rose frowned as she took in what he'd said. "WHAT!"
The Doctor didn't reply. Instead he returned to look at the monitor as it began to beep again.
"Level ten now. This is bad. Two minutes to Belgium…" The Doctor said quickly as he scattered around the console.
Rose just stared at this version of The Doctor. "I am not a fan! I'm you're bloody companion from the future, you git!" she exclaimed.
The Doctor looked at the woman before a bell went off. "Ah! The Cloister Bell."
Rose huffed. "Well, I guess I'd better help you," she said as they both went around the console and flickered buttons.
"In less than a minute we're going to detonate a black hole strong enough to swallow the entire universe!" The Doctor replied as his eyes widened.
Rose bit her lip. "That might've been my fault. Sorry, I had the shields down when your Tardis merged into mine. But maybe… Venting the thermal buffer, flooring the Helmic regulator, and just to finish off, lets fry those Zeiton crystals should put everything back to where they belong."
The Doctor frowned in confusion. "But you'll blow up the Tardis!"
Rose snorted. "I'm sure you did that before," she muttered under her breath. She was gonna ask The Master, who was currently still unconscious in one of the bedrooms. "It's the only way."
"But who told you that?"
Rose smiled softly. "Spoilers," she said as she pulled down a leaver.
"Supernova and black hole at the exact same instant," The Doctor breathed.
"Explosion cancels out implosion," she added.
"…Matter stays constant. But that's brilliant. I've never met anyone else who could fly the Tardis like that."
Rose just blushed. "Thanks… I think, but I didn't have to figure it out."
"That's because you remembered," The Doctor said in awe.
Rose nodded before another alarm sounded and went to check the monitor. "Sorry Doctor, but time's up and the Tardis's are separating and where are you now? Oh and just a head's up, The Master came back."
The Doctor groaned. "Really? Does he still have that rubbish beard?"
Rose blinked. "He had a beard? But no. He had a human wife though."
The Doctor began to fade when he came back. "Oh and Rose, remember to put the shields up!"
Rose just grinned before she did what he told her and went to check on The Master with a slight bounce in her step.
