The Infinite Universe
"Where are we?"
That was the first question I ever heard her ask. Those where the first words I ever hear her speak. It wasn't surprising that she spoke them. It was surprising that those were the words she chose. Not where am I? Not who are you? But where are we?
I didn't even know she was on the TARDIS. I turned around and stared at her. The young girl stared at me. She looked as if she came out of a C.S. Lewis Narnia book. A TARDIS blue bow sat in her hair. The girl's black hair contrasted sharply with her white nightgown. Her eyes wandered around the Control Room before settling on me as if she were more curious than lost.
"Who are you?" I asked.
The girl opened her mouth as if to say something before slowly closing her red lips. After a moment, she slowly opened them again. "Well, I don't know. Who are you?"
"I'm the Doctor."
"Where are we?" She walked down the stairs onto the main deck of the TARDIS room. Her pale feet were bare on the cold metal.
I smiled. "Would you like to find out?"
The girl nodded eagerly. I reached out and took her hand. Together we ran for the door. I tossed the door opened and threw her out. Before she could float away out of the air bubble that surrounded the TARDIS, I caught her hand and let her float. She laughed as her raven hair floated and swirled around her head.
"We're in the sky?" She asked.
I nodded. "Well, technically we are in at the very edge of the universe near a soon to be super nova. But you see, that's the thing. The longer we stay here, the farther away we get from the edge of the universe because this universe is constantly expanding. Expanding into basically nothing. Here's another thing. The universe has no edge, really, because, well, there is no edge. So we can't be at the edge. You see the universe is like a bubble..." I noticed her face and saw it was only filled with fascination. "Never mind what I said."
"So what your trying to say is that we are basically floating in space next to a star that is about to become a super nova." The girl smiled and pulled herself back into the TARDIS. She didn't let go of my hand as we stood face to face, chest to chest.
"Nova." She whispered.
"What about Nova?"
"That's my name." Nova kissed my cheek. "Nova."
"Hello, Nova." I looked in to her eyes and saw they were made from galaxies.
"Hello. I am so very pleased to meet you."
So, a little Doctor Who fanfic for today!
What can I say? I've been watching T.V. shows on physics.
Thoughts on this fanfic...
- No, It's not an Eleventh, Tenth, or Ninth Doctor fanfic. It's a future doctor and future companion.
- Who is Nova? How did she get on the TARDIS? And why is she so mysterious?
- What is this new Doctor like? And is he cute?
