Who: The Doctor and
What: Showing up in Lawrence. Ten's slightly confused.
When: Monday evening.
Where: The Streets Of Lawrence. Doesn't that sound like a movie title?
Rating: Eh, probably not to high.
The Doctor had been flying along in his TARDIS, nice and content, on his way to his next stop, when suddenly it started jerking around in a way that it really shouldn't. But it wasn't the first time it had started shuddering like that. She was getting old and sometimes she couldn't hold herself together the way she used to, after all. And it wasn't the first time she'd gone off course either.
The TARDIS landed where she wanted that time, and with a bit more jostling around than was usual. Enough that when she was finally still, The Doctor found himself on the floor by the console. "Wot?!" He said softly, pulling himself up by the ledge before he started going over the screens. Oddly enough, everything seemed normal this time. There wasn't even any reason to bang on it with his mallet, and just then he found that a bit frustrating.
He ran his hands through his hair as he made his way to the door, egar to figure out just why he was wherever he was. He landed in an alley, and that was good. While the TARDIS had her own difenses that made people's eyes slide right over her, usually not noticing anything out of the ordinary, it was always best to tuck her away where there was even less of a chance of her being noticed. Quickly, The Doctor made his way out of the alley and to the street, being careful to look around as he moved. There was no telling why his girl had picked this place to land, but she had, and there was bound to be a reason. There always was.
At first glance down the street, he decided this was somewhere in America. Nowhere else was laid out quite like this. But it seemed to be a part that he hadn't been to before.
It was only seconds before The Doctor made his way over to a nearby newspaper box and bent over to check the paper that was on display, putting on his brainy specs in the process. Lawrence, Kansas. Nope, he'd never been there before. And it was 2009. Well, both of those were a good ways off from where he had been headed.
But one thing was different from what he expected. He could sense there was another Gallifreyan there, and that could be very bad.
