I am a dork  
Cracked out dorky Doctor Who ficlet type thing that took me all of five minutes. Featuring the ULTIMATE Doctor Who pairing. Oh yes. This will make little to no sense if you haven't seen Fear Her.



She had been perfect. He loved her. He really did. The feelings had been building slowly but surely and now he realised how truly foolish he had been not to release them. She would never know how he felt.

There was so much anger in him now. Anger towards them, the ones who took her away. Oh, it may have looked like metal that ripped into her flesh but it was human hands that drove it. Human hands that drove the force destroying his beloved.

The sorrow overwhelmed him and he bent once more to stroke her, still warm in the gentle daylight. Just five minutes ago they had been so happy, and now she was gone, never to be returned to him.

Logically he knew there would be others to take her place; others who could fill the hole in his heart, hold his hand. Still, although they might look similar, none would be quite the same. None would be quite as perfect as she was. Her warmth, her touch. He would never forget it.

With a sigh Kel the council street repair guy stood upright once more and turned away from the once stunning patch of tarmac that had held his heart. His van was waiting for him, and thankfully the girl had taken the pickaxe with her when she disappeared. It would not taunt him. Instead he held the memory of his love close to his heart and drove away, never to be seen in the street again.

He didn’t look back, preferring to remember her as she was, all dark moist perfection. It was what she would have wanted. He would never feel this way again.

The next day, somewhere in space and time…


“What on Earth’s this?”

“Oh God, I must have picked up that guy’s council pickaxe.”

“Council pickaxe?”

“Came from his council van. I think he loved it with most of his council heart.”

“You stole it.”

“I did not.”

“You did, I can see the Council envy in your eyes. You wanted it.”

“Stop talking rubbish.”

“We should give it back then, if it doesn’t mean anything to you.”

“Fine then. Just drop it for all that I care.”

“Drop it? But that could kill somebody! You murderer.”

“Can’t you just make it not hit somebody. Like, choose a time when there won’t be anyone standing there.”

“What makes you think I have that much self control? I have always wanted to try target practice from space.”

“You what?”

“Target practice from space.”

“I give up. I just completely give up. What would your target be anyway?”

“The council guy. I mean, if he loved his pickaxe so much, it should be returned. We’re doing him a favour.”

“You might kill him.”

“I might not. And if I do I’ll just go back to five minutes beforehand and make sure he moves.”

“Can you do that?”

“Probably. Don’t you want to try?”

*pause*

“Go on, then. But we can’t kill him.”

“Fantastic.”

“I swear, you are just like a bloody kid.”

“Don’t complain, you love it.”

A few seconds later. On Earth.

She was beautiful. Pefection. He loved her. He stood up to admire her from afar…

And there was a showering of tarmac and dust as a pickaxe came from nowhere and buried itself within her. Again.

And then there was a voice. A large intimidating voice that seemed to come from nowhere and everywhere and echoed around him. A slightly familiar voice now he thought about it.

“Damn. I missed.”

Thank you :) I'm glad you liked it. I adored Council Guy and his love for his tarmac. In fact I loved his entire scene with Rose, "I'll report you to the council!"

OMG I loved the Council Tarmaccing guy from Love Actually, and I am so happy you wrote him a fic.
A dreamer dreams, she never dies: dw; smile!sweet_like_choc on June 25th, 2006 09:22 am (UTC)
Love Actually! I knew I'd seen him somewhere before. He was a bit awesome though, wasn't he?! I'm reporting you to the Coucil.

Thanks for reading, I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

Absolutely brilliant, from beginning to end!
The introduction threw me off completely - I totally didn't see it coming, thinking to myself, 'wow, this is a bit sappy for Doctor/Rose.' Love it!
A dreamer dreams, she never dies: dw; smile!sweet_like_choc on June 25th, 2006 09:26 am (UTC)
Yay! Someone fell for my misdirection ;) That was actually the original point of this fic, I just started writing it so it seemed like Doctor/Rose but was seecritly Kel/Street. And it's not like Doctor Who hasn't given us street slab pairings before.

Glad you liked it :)
emily2242emily2242 on June 25th, 2006 11:10 am (UTC)
I fell for it too!! Thats why it made me laugh so much!!

I hope there will still be people like you around after all the horribleness of the last two episodes to save me from bursting into tears everytime I think of Dr Who!

:D

It's odd because I've never been inspired to write Doctor Who fic before. Just my luck that the most minor random character gives me inspiration when poor Rose and Doc don't. Let's hope there'll be more random characters in the next two to distract from the angst *crosses fingers*

hahaha true, true.

Kel/Tarmac, lol. Just writing that out is bizarre.

PMSL!!! Pure comedy genius! I loved that tarmacing guy! You've cheered me up after being miserable about Rose leaving!
A dreamer dreams, she never dies: dw; smile!sweet_like_choc on June 25th, 2006 11:22 am (UTC)
Thank you :) I originally wrote this to distract myself from the omgDOOM of the next two episodes, so it's nice to see it works for others :)
