My own personal End of Time therapy. Not my best work, but I thought someone else might need the therapy too. Just the dialogue from the Doctor/Rose scene, along with what I imagine their thoughts were. Bold is Rose, not bold is the Doctor. Any confusion, comments, questions, suggestions? Review! (P.S. Han-Skywalker is my amazing first reader!)
I just want a glimpse. I can handle one glimpse, from a distance, just to say goodbye.
And I'm an idiot. Great blinking, bloody moron why did I convince myself I could handle this? She's too close. Maybe she won't see me. It hurts so much.
"You alright mate?" Some drunk staggering home from a New Year's party.
"Too much to drink?" Nice coat. Is he wearing a suit? Doesn't seem like he's in the right part of town.
"Something like that." Just a little radiation poisoning. I'm dying, but it's fine. I'm always fine.
"Maybe it's time you went home." Can't see his face, hiding in the shadows like that.
"Yeah." Except I don't have a home. My planet's gone, again. Once, when I told you I had no one, you said I had you. But you don't even know me yet. And I'll never see you again.
"Anyway, Happy New Year." Hope you make it home alright.
"And you." Don't leave me here. I don't want to die alone. I can't let you go-
"What year is this?"
"Blimey, how much have you had?" That explains why he's wearing trainers with a suit.
I've missed that laugh.
"Two thousand and five, January the first."
"Two thousand and five." So close. She's about to be my Rose. Don't you dare cry now, this pain is your own blooming fault. If she comes closer and sees you clearly everything could change.
"Tell you what, I bet you're gonna have a really great year." How fitting, that I die now, right before she teaches me how to live again. Full circle.
"Yeah?" Poor guy. Seems like he's had a rough year. Still, the way he said that. Sounds like he really believes it. And you never know, every year is a new start. Maybe this year will be different. Maybe something exciting will happen.
Yes, you will.
And you know what Rose?
It's gonna be brilliant. Allons-y.
But for me, this is the end.
