That’d be me. Definitely.
So. Now we’re both stuck up here? ( a skeptical look from the younger. ) Shit. ( a bit of a pause. ) Who are you, anyways? A normal dude wouldn’t have just said yes to helping me down from here. Especially in L.A.
Well, stuck is a relative term.
I’d say we’re more… temporarily inconvenienced.
[He sticks out one hand towards her, as the other digs the other into one of his coat pockets, fumbling around.] You’re lucky I’m not from Los Angeles, then. The Doctor.
“From what I’ve seen, your funny little happy-go-lucky little life leaves devastation in its wake. Always moving on because you dare not look back. Playing with so many people’s lives, you might as well be a god. And you’re right, Doctor. You’re absolutely right. Sometimes… you let one go.”
#ahhh #you see this is my dark doctor #not eleven who is afraid of his capacity for darkness and the sucking; tidal loneliness within him that could swallow worlds #not ten whose darkness was all rage and mania—the cold-burning anger that condemned the family of blood or threatened to rip time #because he was Time Lord Victorious and it was his right #but nine #glorious nine #who is so comfortable with dealing out death that he thinks nothing of it; you cannot flinch from what you are #nine can smile and lightly talk about sparing one life; maybe two; because the dead of the time war slide off the scale and what is one more #world compared to that? #he is so steeped in horror it has become mundane for him (the first horror is the horror; the second is accepting it) #nine who emerged from the Time War the only colossus in a universe of ants #but rather than choosing to crush them beneath his heel because what is one more world? #he happens to be kind #because if you happen to be kind enough; if you choose not to step and snuff out their tiny lives enough times #maybe you can work your way back to being a good man #a fool’s errand #but a good fool #doctor who (notbecauseofvictories)
In short, don’t skip nine.
( ooc: bless xkit for fixing that dumb images problem so quickly tbh. u.u )
(( jealousy!!! i would have liked school to have been cancelled due to snow, but sadly i live in a weather cradle where snow rarely lasts more than a few hours and accrues maybe a quarter inch ))
( ooc: hahaha sorry but if it makes you feel any better, while I’m pretty sure school was cancelled for people who are in it, I HAVE TO WORK still so I know your feel. despite the snow, to work I must goooo. )
( ooc: Tell them how you feel. Letting things fester like that is only going to make it worse for both you and your RP partner in the long run. Communication is important, and I really can’t stress that enough. If your RP partner doesn’t know how you’re feeling right now, the odds are that they’re not doing it on purpose and probably aren’t even aware that they’re hurting your feelings.
Just remember: sometimes people lose a muse for certain threads. It doesn’t mean that they don’t want to RP with you anymore if they respond less and less; it might just mean that they’re having trouble keeping the story flowing. I know sometimes I’ve had to take breaks from threads from even the people I RP the most with (for instance — I’m pretty sure like half of the threads I owe Dana (romanaofheartshaven) are MONTHS old by now… obviously we’ve had other threads in the meantime, but I gotta get back to those threads eventually) (I mean, the reason isn’t quite the same — it’s less I lost the muse, more that this blog has gotten incredibly busy and a hell of a lot of traffic since those threads were started, but you get what I mean, yeah???).
Listen, just talk to your friend privately and tell them how you’re feeling. Be patient, ok? People can have multiple writing partners — which you seem to be aware of and cool with — but I can attest that sometimes balancing the threads can be a hard task. Ask your partner if they want to try a new plot or if they just want small character interactions. Maybe something new will help get that old writing spark back between you two.
And if it doesn’t work out? It’s also not the end of the world. Sometimes writing partners grow distant. It doesn’t mean that you or they did anything wrong; it’s just a thing that happens, and it sucks, but if that’s the reality you have to face, just remember that, ok?
I hope this helps. Good luck. <3 )
Oh, little baby penguin can’t run with his waddling feets.
C’mon Doc, how can you say no to this face?
N—! Frobisher, that is not fair, you can’t just- shift into a toddling penguinling! [sigh] What do you want?
( ooc: MORE SNOWWWWW!!! )
No, just stay. It’ll be a waste of a trip if you leave. I was planning on visiting you later on, anyways.
Right, then. [He stands there, awkward and unsure of what to do.]
What for, exactly? Were you planning on - visiting me for, I mean.
Pro Tip for Roleplayers:
Right now, a lot of you are getting that god-awful grey box in place of your gifs and icons. After using the image upload option, go into HTML editor and add an s after the HTTP of the image URL and put a 31. in front of the media in place of what’s there, or if nothing’s there, you shouldn’t get the grey box. Example.
as opposed to this.
( ooc: things I got out of this: 1) WOW RORY LOOK AT U GO 12% WOW (remember when we went on liking sprees and made it so the percentage was like 80% and stuff? LMAO), and 2) I NEED TO REPLY TO ALL OF MY THREADS FOR ROMANA B/C SHE’S TOO LOW )
