This is a parody, perhaps rather random for some. With all the fuss over the Doctor's name, I simply couldn't resist. I hope you all enjoy this. Pretty please drop me a review. They make me all happy inside! :) This parody is for great minds who think alike—my sisters, and JOTM, Ithilwen the White and their sister, Pearl.
"C'mon, Doctor," The red head smiled winningly at the Doctor, who cringed, "It's just a name. How bad can it be?"
"No, Donna," The Doctor shook his head like one speaking to an unruly child.
"A man of mystery," Donna ran her hands along the TARDIS console, "It can't be that bad if it's written in the Medusa Whatsit."
"Medusa Cascade. Yes, it can. There were these bullies back at the Academy in Gallifrey and they wrote my name in the Meduasa Cascade. They were mean!'" The Doctor shuddered, temporarily lost in memory.
"Bullies wrote your name in the Medusa Cascade?!" Donna was surprised (and amused, but she hid this as she did not want to find out first hand if the Doctor got mad enough at companions to shove them out of the TARDIS as it flew full speed down the corridors of time and space).
"Yes," The Doctor sniffed.
Donna was more determined than ever to find out the name of the Last Timelord.
"What?" The Doctor gasped, "Rumpelstiltskin? Never! No, it was..." He paused and then leaned close, whispering in her ear.
"Bob?!" Screeched Donna, "Your name is Bob?!"
"Shhh!!" The Doctor blushed and put a hand over her mouth. He looked quickly around as if to see if anyone had overheard, which, unless, they had some stowaways, was quite impossible.
Donna stood, with mouth agape, in complete shock. Bob?
"Now you see why it the universe's darkest secret, don't you?" The Doctor's eyes pleaded with her to never reveal it to anyone. "I mean, it's not exciting. It doesn't inspire. There's no mystery to it. I mean how would you liked to go around saying, 'Bob saved the world today!'"
Donna laughed, and then, seeing the Doctor's expression, sobered up, "How horrible!"
"I know!" The Doctor's voice was deep with anguish, "All the things that follow me, haunt me, all of the things I can't shake—they all start and end with my name." He sniffed.
Donna nodded sympathetically, holding back her laughter for the Doctor's sake.
"So, you see now, Donna, why this must never go any further? Promise me? Donna, do you promise?!" His urgent tone forced Donna to swallow back her hysterical giggles and nod solemnly.
"Of course, Doctor."
The Doctor nodded, seeming satisfied. As soon as he went back to work, Donna ran back to her room and laughed until she cried.
