Chapter Fifteen: Time II

Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who and gain nothing from the creation of this story


"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff."

Those words had come to describe his life over the last few years. Sure he was a Time Lord and thus this life had also had elements of time twisting and turning into odd forms, but lately it was just... a lot. Rose Tyler, that girl had brought joy back into his life and he believed a new level of strangeness. After all the series time twists had all started when he had gotten her back and then they never really stopped. Smiling, the Doctor flipped another switch and adjusted the course of the TARDIS.

Still, last of the Time Lords with a very special lover who had a lengthened life span and the ability to give him children. The odd shape that time could twist into had given her to him and had given him a life after the Time War. The Time Lords could survive and even rise again, not that he had that as a goal in mind. He wasn't really complaining if he occasionally had to do things out of order to keep Rose. Watching, Rose walk into the control room with her mobile, chatting with Martha, he smiled. Nope, not complaining at all even if this time loop seemed to have been caused only by the need to pick up a silly little teddy bear for Sammy. That Teddy of TARDIS was after all, his son's favorite toy.
