FIC: Lament

Title: Lament
Characters: Ten and Donna
Spoilers: Planet of the Ood
Author's Notes: Just watched Planet of the Ood. Subsequently committed drabble. So here it is, a tiny h/c missing scene. (Thanks to wendymr  for suggesting a title that worked better.)

“But you can still hear it!” she nearly sobs.

“All the time,” he replies, barely able to hear his own voice through the overpowering song.

It’s too much, too loud. He should turn away, but he can’t. He’s transfixed.

He bows his head until his forehead bangs against the bars. The song fills his mind.

Captivity. Anguish. Despair.

Suddenly, there are hands on his face, pulling him away.

It’s Donna. Why has she put her hands there? She can’t contact his mind this way.

She isn’t trying to. She’s wiping away his tears.

“We’ll help them,” she says resolutely.

She's turning out to be made of sheer awesome.

She really is - I was going to give up on DW until she was announced for S4, but she's far exceeding even my expectations.

And, of course, as a musician, I loved the whole musical trope of the episode. Just wish the music had been a bit better, because Gold has done better. /quibble

I'm going to have to re-watch it with my ears open. The first time around I was way too busy watching Donna running around being awesome and the evil guard guy playing bobbing for Doctors in the container room. :-D

I really think someone's been watching Toy Story in the writer's room - repeatedly. I couldn't quite believe we got two Toy Story call-outs so close together. Maybe unintentional, but seems awfully coincidental!

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
