TITLE: Flying
DISCLAIMER: I don't own the Doctor or Ace. If I did, I would've had the two of them have more adventures well into the 1990s. Written for entertainment purposes, no monetary profit gained.
FANDOM: Doctor Who
INCARNATION: Seventh Doctor (played by Sylvester McCoy)
WORD COUNT: 100
CHALLENGE: #123. "Return to Flight" on [livejournal.com profile] dw100
RATING: G
PAIRING: Can be read as Seven/Ace
SUMMARY: Ace thinks about flying.

***

There were times when Ace thought she was flying instead of running.

He'd grab her hand, or hold out his brolly for her to cling to, and they would run, harder and faster than Ace thought possible. The Doctor was never tired, no matter how much he ran, but keeping up with him always left her dizzy, breathless. She was only human, after all.

She thought that there'd come a day when he'd push her too hard, ask for too much, and she wouldn't just fall down, but fly to pieces.

But he'd look at her, and she'd fly again.

Awwww that's all sweet! And I say that as one who would have it that McCoy and Aldred never got the parts because Six would still be around now... ;)

Eh, they're my favorites, so I'm all biased. Still, it's nice to know that people who liked other Doctors like this drabble. :)

:D

I've been watching the stories with Six, and while it was really kind of like getting a bucket of ice water in the face, it's a shame that he wasn't on for a little longer, or at least given a better regeneration scene/story into Seven.

And dude, the Rani was so much cooler in The Mark of the Rani. Her neutrality in the whole, "OMG, STFU and go away before you two screw up my experiment," was just like, "Bzuh?" after seeing her in Time and the Rani.

*cuddles Seven out of habit*

Honestly, whoever at the BBC thought that Sylvester-McCoy-inna-wig would pass for the huge chunk of gorgeousness that is Colin Baker was deranged... [/whinge] They sacked him, you know, and then said "Oh, BTW, we'd like you to come back to do a regeneration story..." I personally think he was quite correct to tell them to naff off.

I'm actually warming to Seven quite a lot, having spent nearly twenty years hating him as the man who stole Colin's job LOL.

Speaking as someone who was initially biased against Colin (because he replaced my beloved Peter ;) ), I think he got a bad break. I liked Six. It was a take we hadn't seen before. I think he got some awful scripts. And I think it totally sucked that he died in a stupid way--falling off an exercise bike? WTF? Four fell off a freakin' radio tower, and still had enough time to say goodbye.

LMAO yeah, but it gave us the line in Zagreus about "one of MY companions killed me with carrot juice and exercise..."

Is it me or does ten look like Chris Evans on your icon?

* ish scared by that thought *

I'm afraid I still tend to think of Five as a long intro for Six LOL. Peter Davison NOW I wouldn't say no to (rawr), but he was just too young and schoolboyish when he was Five. Also, the way he played Five was way too subtle for me. I loved him when he (literally) Hammed in Hitchhiker though.

Yeah, I'm thinking that Six and Seven (except for Seven's last season/series) got some really bad stuff.

As for falling off an exercise bike, wha? I know that on the show, Six had the console blow up in his face, and as a result, he regenerated into Seven (which is kind of bad, because if it were that intense an explosion, there should've been a large chunk of the console MISSING)...

Hee! Thanks. :D

Ace was the one that wore sensible shoes, was 16, and played with explosives. I love her forEVER.
