Rose sighs as she watches the Doctor sleeping. Even though he insisted the medicine wouldn’t do anything because of his “superior” biology, he was softly breathing as he slept off the drugs in his system.
"Martha’s here," she finally whispers, taking his hand in hers. Even in drug-addled sleep his fingers curl around hers and the warmth of his hand causes her to smile. "She’s an intern here but she’s on your case. I figured you wouldn’t mind but I told her not to give you any Aspirin. Just in case."
"How’s he’s doing?" Martha asks, coming in the room. Rose looks up and sees she’s wearing street clothing, her shift just ending.
"Not too bad considering. Asleep right now," Rose replies, moving to the side so Martha can join her at the bedside.
"Not to pry," Martha starts, moving to the foot of the bed, "but when you said he’s an alien…" Rose smirks and looks to the intern.
"That wasn’t a joke," Rose answers. "He’s part alien."
"And you’re telling me because…?" Martha leaves the question unanswered, hoping Rose would fill it in.
"Because we trust you," she simply says.
"Right, is that why he didn’t crack his head open falling down the stairs?" she retorts back and Rose loves the sass. He hadn’t told her much but she knew the Martha of their original universe was good for him.
"No," she says with a smile. "That was shear luck and his thick skull."
"Just because my eyes are closed," he replies, his voice hoarse and cracking, "doesn’t mean I’m asleep." Martha’s eyes widen when she realizes they’ve been caught but Rose just smirks and leans up to kiss him.
"Next time," she whispers so Martha can’t hear, "we make it all the way to the bedroom, yeah?" He nods minutely and a cracks open an eye to give a smile to Martha.

”I said you were the most beautiful thing I’d ever known.”

"There’s nothing wrong with a van. I once saved the universe with a big yellow truck."
Casual reminder that when the Doctor did this:
He thought he was kissing Rose goodbye.
Pixar can never top this.
Can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that the best loved line from this movie comes from a character we never even got to see?

For those of you who know me or have at least followed me for awhile, you know that I don’t ask much, if at all, for favors.
But I’m asking for one now.
This is Chris Riggs, or more commonly known to his friends and brothers as “Riggs”. He’s a Junior at East Carolina University and a Music Education major. He’s a talented trumpet player, a natural teacher, and a wonderful person under the somewhat jackassish surface (I say this out of love).
Riggs also has epilepsy and after taking medication and it working for about four years, something changed and it doesn’t work anymore. His seizures have tripled in the past year, to the point where he misses class for days, ends up in the hospital at least once a month or every couple of months, and lives with the worry of even stepping outside of his door in case he has seizures.
Riggs’ dream is to be a music teacher, to inspire a deep love of music in people like he does himself. He can’t do that when his health is affecting his studies. He’s not able to drive either as North Carolina law states you have to be seizure free for a year before applying for one.
There is a surgery he can have done called the Vagus Nerve Stimulator, where the doctors give him an implant that lesses the seizures and can give Riggs more balance in his life and help him become a music teacher.
Unfortunately, his family can’t afford the $40k price of the surgery on top of helping pay for Riggs’ schooling and raising their other children and insurance won’t cover the costs. That’s where you guys can come in.
Every bit helps, even if it’s one dollar. If enough people donate, Chris can have a higher chance of living through college.
I am asking that you consider donating to his gofundme (started in July, link will be down below), and/or share this post to circulate it around tumblr.
Riggs is as good as a brother to me (albeit a younger, cockier brother that you have to shake your head at all the time brother). He’s a brother of Phi Mu Alpha (Zeta Psi chapter) and we share a bond of brotherhood through a love of music. He’s dating one of my KKPsi brothers (the-souls-speech) and I see how much he loves her deeply just by watching him. He has a passion for teaching, a passion for helping, and he gives so much to others that this is the only way I can see how to help him.
With November approaching, National Epilepsy Awareness month too, please consider donating or reblogging this post for those who can.
Thank you, so much,

Just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know, and one of them is, there’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number 4 in labor force, and number 4 in exports. We lead the world in only 3 categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined. 25 of whom are allies. Now, none of this is the fault of a 20 year old college student. But you, nonetheless, are without a doubt a member of the worst. generation. ever. So when you ask, “what makes us the greatest country in the world?” I dunno know what the fuck you’re talking about. Yosemite?
Prompt: Will is an incredibly smart guy, but he will never be as knowledgeable about the Middle East as Mac is.
I took this in another direction than I think the prompt was supposed to go, but I like it. Set post-season 2 but no real spoilers.
“Yes, I understand,” Jim replied through gritted teeth. The agent on the other end yammered on for another moment; apologizing again for dropping out at the last minute but with over four feet of expected snow by 9:30 that evening and record lows, everyone was bunking in. “Okay, good bye.”
Jim slammed the receiver on the cradle and buried his head in his hands. Fuck. She was their replacement Middle East expert—scratch that: their replacement for the replacement when the first replacement decided to cancel three hours ago for the original guest who fell and broke his hip. Jim sighed and stood, grabbing his notepad and making a beeline for Will’s door.
They were not going to be happy about this.
Do you think she got the message yet?
