she takes the offered hand and curls up against his side, her head on his shoulder. 

Sometimes, my heart is just heavy.

I suspect it’s all the years I can’t remember catching up to me.

You can’t remember? Don’t tell me you have a spot of amnesia as well? My god, is it contagious?

[Erik rests his head upon hers, holding her hand carefully as he speaks.] I understand the feeling of a heavy heart, I truly do. There is no need to explain it to me. You are more than welcome to be in my home, but next time I would appreciate a bit more warning.

[Because if he had his mutation, she would have had some knives for company as soon as he noticed her existence.]

{ she moves her head up to stare at him with a pouty face. } Wine cures everything, right?

Right. Now come, sit up properly and let me listen to your woes.

[He offers the pretty lady his hand, hoping that she will actually take it.]

[As ever, the TARDIS sits quietly just within reach. Her top lightbulb glows soft and warm when she’s mentioned, and a general air of exasperation seems to radiate from her.]

Right, the TARDIS does that, [the Doctor mentions, looking at his ship, pointedly ignoring her input], kind of stays unnoticed, but not really? It’s her cloaking device.

[Doors open with a snap of his fingers and he steps inside, leans against some railing near the console. Her engines purr, and the lighting responds as well, greeting Erik warmly and familiarly.]

She always has liked you.

[There’s already a smirk on his lips as he walks through her open doors. It drops only slightly when he enters the console room, but that is due to his wonderment taking hold of him. With what he has left, he extends his meager mutation towards the ship and touches what part of her she can. Erik closes his eyes and lets out a sigh of content.]

I like her too. [He then opens one eye, smiling up at her like the cheeky bastard he is. His eyes then move to Theta, and he offers up a shrug.] So. Tea? Or are you going to give me the grand tour first? [Because really, he wouldn’t mind seeing more of this beautiful ship. He likes hearing her little whispers in his ear. It’s like a dialogue only he is allowed to listen into.]

{ she makes more sad noises and topples over all the way - looking vaguely like an upset teenage girl. }

Lilly. [Erik tuts, setting the bottle on the table as well. He looks to his guest on the floor, shuffling about to properly close the book he was reading before taking a spot beside her on the couch.]

Come now, Lilly, what is the matter? Can I at least pour you a glass of wine?

{ i'm sorry, but there's a grumpy lilly cat laying somewhere in the vicinity of erik making sad noises. }

[Oh no. That’s not any good. How did a Lilly manage to find her way into his home? No matter. Stepping around her, he goes into the kitchen and picks up a bottle of wine from the fridge. Coming back with two glasses in tow, he walks over to the couch she’s sitting upon and places the glasses upon the table before her.]

Care to tell me what ever is the matter, my dear?

[He can’t argue with that, either. The Doctor’s heard before, and from multiple sources, how he’s essentially useless on his own. Not far off the mark, as experience continues to demonstrate.]

Mm, well. Given time t’think about it, [he pauses for a moment, and continues,] y’haven’t had much of a chance to get reacquainted properly with my ship. You should come in for tea. 

Tea sounds wonderful. [And only because it meant that hopefully his alien friend would stop freaking obsessing over this human. He feels as though this will probably be a pattern, and doesn’t know if he feels up for this kind of headache. But, Theta is a valuable friend, and did get him those vials of Cure after all.]

[He seemed to be worth the fuss.]

I would love to meet your ship. She seems lovely from what I’ve seen of her.

starlightinhiswake:

No. Your company’s enough.

[He thinks of how much he’s missed Erik, and how the thought of him has always accompanied the Doctor in his absence. It’s still surreal to have found him, yet again against all the odds.]

…You do have a way of keeping me grounded. I bet that’s a sentence you don’t hear very often.

[Well, that brings about something related to a smile. Erik is still pretty busy judging you, though.]

I suppose someone has to, hmm? You with your silly space man feet in the air. There isn’t anything I can do for you to get your mind off of this silly human for a little bit?

[Because right now he would figure out a way to get his powers back in an instant just so he could marvel his friend with his talents. Then again, the Time Lord has probably seen it all before and wouldn’t be that much fun.]

…Okay, I can’t argue with that. [Humans can be and typically are a particular brand of troubles, yet he can’t deny his fascination with them. Most of the company he keeps is human. Though it rarely ends well, he recognizes it’s often his fault.]

My worries might well be irrational; they’re admittedly frustrating, but they’re still troubling.

What can I do then to help you, Theta? Must I do something to take your mind off of it?
