Alright, this is the actual song from Doctor'sgirlcompanion's fic that inspired these drabbles.


That's Why

Song: Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down


I watched the world fall to the dark side of the moon

After all I knew it had to be something thing to do with you

I really don't mind what happens now and then

As long as you'll be my friend at the end


He was self-destructing.

It was inevitable really.

He did just experience the Time War after all.

It was bound to happen eventually.

He'd tell himself that he was a Time Lord and Time Lords don't self-destruct.

But he didn't really care.

He was the last of his species, who's to tell whether or not he should do so?

Himself, that's who.

Then he met Rose.

He kept a safe distance like he always did.

At first.

But then the Daleks came back.

Then she looked in the heart of the TARDIS.

Then he kissed her.

Then he regenerated.

Then he grew closer to her.

He was no longer self-destructive.

Not with her around.

She kept him sane.

She gave him a reason to go on.

She gave him a reason to uphold the reputation of the Time Lords.

She gave him a new reason to live.

She was wonderful.

She was cheeky.

She was brave.

She was clever.

She could render him speechless.

She knew how to cheer him up.

She knew how to irritate him to no end.

But, no matter what she did, he loved her.

Oh, yes, he loved her.

He loved her a lot.

And he didn't see that changing any time soon.

Actually, he didn't see that changing ever.

Cos he loved her.

No matter what.

That's why.


If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?

If I'm alive and well will you be there holding my hand?

I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman, my kryptonite
