Title: End Song
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG

It’s a song of good and evil, hope and despair, failure and success, filling him with the memories and emotions of everything that was, is, and will be. 


End Song
              It’s a high, flowing sort of song, too high for human ears to register (and it’s not like a human would understand it, anyway), but he hears it, and understands it.  It’s a song of good and evil, hope and despair, failure and success, filling him with the memories and emotions of everything that was, is, and will be.  The music is the embodiment of Time itself and the Doctor feels it, every bit of it, as any Time Lord must.
                And now, as he stands before his greatest enemy, the Doctor is paralyzed by the terrible wailing song of his TARDIS.  He hears her, screaming as she burns, the sound of it threatening to overthrow his sanity once and for all.  He stares at the fiery image as the TARDIS’s song ends, and she can no longer be heard over the din of the universe.  Davros declares his TARDIS dead– gone forever– and the rush of pure despair is nearly too much to bear.  Only the feel of Rose’s hand in his keeps him anchored to this world.  Even though his world has just been turned upside down, she’s still here and still loves him, despite everything that’s happened.

I know, I miss them too!
I keep hoping and hoping they'll bring them back somehow... but that would just be too much.

Haha I'm glad you liked it! I think this is the shortest piece I've ever done, so I was a bit concerned it wouldn't turn out so great. It's good to hear you enjoyed it. :)

Yeah, when I saw this scene for the first time, the deep emotions behind it really intrigued me.
Thanks much!

This, this is just sooo tragically perfect. Poor Ten, Rose grabbing his hand was such a perfect moment.
