I haven't written anything in a very long time out of fear. Fear that I am over using Tegan Jovanka and the Doctor. But now I don't care! Crossposted at my livejournal
Once involved with the Doctor; always involved with the Doctor. Someone should have warned her that her life no matter how ordinary it became would be interrupted by some freak time meddling. Not to mention needing rescued by the Doctor. As the Doctor tugged her forward over the rough terrain; Tegan decided that she wasn't as young as she used to be. The jagged rocks that randomly jutted out of the ground made it nearly impossible for her to walk over the rocky surface of the alien planet. But still the younger (but older looking) Doctor pulled her along as if the hounds of hell were nipping at their feet.
However, she was tired of being jerked around and rallied enough strength to pull her hand out of his grasp. "Give it a rest, Doc. We have an ample head start and you said the guards are hibernating or whatever."
The dark haired Doctor who was still a bit taller than she was closed the distance quickly between them. So much so it unnerved her. "I can not express to you the importance of reaching the TARDIS before dawn except there is more to worry about than the guards I nicked you from. We have miles to go till we reach the TARDIS and very little time to do it in. Once the sun comes up, the planet's surface will be covered in exploding rocks and lava flows. So I believe we shouldn't stop too long because of your impratical footwear!"
"So it's my fault that a wormhole opened up and sucked me through it right before I was to go on a date?!"
"Miss Jovanka--wait a moment." A light seemed to go on in the Doc's brain. "You're baiting me into an argument so we can rest a little longer! Let's go!"
As he grabbed her hand and tugged her into motion; Tegan felt as though she was a three year old caught red handed in the cookie jar. She had been found out.
"I'm sure I have my hands full with you!"
Tegan smiled knowingly as she spied the TARDIS in the not so far distance. "I'll explain later."
