[Eight is bumping into people a lot lately. Probably because lately he's been spending a lot more time paying more attention to staying out of the way of the natives than actually watching where he's going.

And so, as the small fellow in the blue leather comes hurtling out of an alleyway, arms laden with fresh paint brushes, he of course crashes right into poor Clara.]


I'm so terribly sorry. I really ought to look where I'm going one of these days. It's a--

[He stops dead and squints, looking her over. While he hadn't had the chance to spend a lot of time with Oswin -- with her spending so much time with Pyro, who he'd rather not hang around with socially -- he had seen her around before she disappeared.

The resemblance was uncanny. Then again, Peri also held an uncanny resemblance to Queen Anne of France, wife of Louis XIII. It happens from time to time.]


Sorry, I don't mean to stare. It's just...you look amazingly one of my other selves' friends. A woman by the name of Oswin. Have you heard of her?

[Clara's unable to answer at first apart from shaking her head, just due to the fact that the sight of his face is enough to send her crashing back to loitering in the bottom of his timestream. She knows this face, she knows him, she knows that voice. It's the Doctor. It's him, his younger self. He's here, and he can see her. And hear her.

He's speaking to her.

Recognition is written all over her face as she gets a bit emotional, eyes going glassy as she gapes up at him and flounders for words to say.
]

Don't mean to stare either. Not really. [Thoughtful frown goes here.]

It's just...you did say other self, didn't you? Think you did, which means...

[A pause, and she seems to be calculating something on her fingers.]

You're his eighth face.

[A bit of a weird way to meet him for the first time, but she's trying.]

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-08 05:00 am (UTC)(link)
[Her reaction to him was startling and, being somewhat handsy (though not nearly as much as his Eleventh self), he reaches out and puts his hands on her shoulders.]

Yes, yes I am. Are you...alright, miss?

[He studies her face with a concerned frown. He is fairly sure he hasn't met this girl, but someone who looks uncannily like her, and yet she knows who he is and his presence has obviously shaken her.]
teamug: (cherish)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-08 05:28 am (UTC)(link)
[She moves as if she might hug him, then realizes that's ridiculous. He doesn't know her at all, and she technically doesn't know him. This face, anyway. She figures she'll always know him, but it just wouldn't be right to hug someone that doesn't know why she's looking at him the way she is or how she knows him. So she takes in a shaky breath of air and gives a nod.]

I'll be just fine. Really. You just remind me of someone I care about, that's all.

[But that still doesn't explain how she knows which face he is, so she brings a hand up and pats at one of his hands that's on her shoulders.]

Your older self. I travel with him here and there.

[Is that a decent enough explanation? She doubts it, but maybe it will suffice. For now, anyway.]
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-08 06:08 am (UTC)(link)
[Wouldn't be the first time he's been hugged by a stranger. Still, if she feels uncomfortable with it, he's fine with foregoing the affection for now.]

I get that a lot.

My older self, eh? Which one? I have three older selves here. Does he have big ears, a pinstripe suit, or a bow tie?
teamug: (smile)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-08 06:11 am (UTC)(link)
[She laughs at that, fighting back the urge to cry at further confirmation that they're all here.]

Bow tie belongs to me.

[Pause.]

Sort of. He's the one that whisked me away in the TARDIS, anyway.

[But this one is nice to see, and after one last pat to his hand she straightens herself up and swallows all her emotions and smiles instead.]

I'm Clara. Don't think I've mentioned that just yet.

[Eight's expression softens a bit more. Good. After River went back home, it is good to know that Eleven has someone that was "his own" (for lack of a better term that sat better with him) to be there. Someone who is uniquely familiar to him. Almost all of his other selves have someone like that now.

And no, he's still not sure why he's so intent on all of his other selves having someone there. Asgard gives him weird ideas.]


It is a pleasure to meet you, Clara. You've managed to stumble into quite a large makeshift family, I must say.
teamug: (honesty)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-08 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
[She comes from such a small family, and then has been living with a reasonably small family as a nanny...the idea of a large makeshift family is almost overwhelming.]

Have I? That's...well, new, to be quite honest.

[But it's exciting, at least. Even if she knows it will be a lot to take in at first.]

Does that family include you?

[He's kind, charming, and he's helped put her at ease. She'll go ahead and hope it includes him.]
beforethewar: (pic#6463737)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-09 06:32 am (UTC)(link)
[He smiles and gives her a slow nod.]

Of course. Me and...my other selves, plus other friends. I hope having so many Doctors around won't be too much. It can get a little strange at times.
teamug: (scathingly brilliant idea)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-09 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
I dunno. Sounds brilliant to me. Perfect, really.

[Almost like home, in its own little way. She's seen all of them, and she desperately wants to get to know each one that's here. Get to understand their quirks, their personalities, learn the common threads that tie each regeneration together.]

Think you'll all have trouble keeping up with me.

[Eyebrows waggle playfully, and she laughs. She's got no problem admitting she can be a handful.]
beforethewar: (pic#5892287)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-09 07:00 am (UTC)(link)
Really, now? A troublesome companion, are we?

[He gives her a wide grin. Troublesome companions are fun.]

You know, I am younger than your Doctor, even if he looks like he's twelve years old. I'm sure I can manage to keep up with you.
teamug: (coy)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-09 07:26 am (UTC)(link)
[She laughs, smirking in amusement at his response.]

I'll be the judge of that.

[Innocent shrug goes here.]

Also. I'm hardly troublesome. I just talk fast, and have a tendency move a bit faster.
beforethewar: (pic#6699408)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-11 02:04 am (UTC)(link)
And how does the old man manage to keep up with you?

[Yes, he's calling his future self "the old man", because yay, he's got someone to help him tease him.]
teamug: (yaaaaay)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-14 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Sheer luck, I wager.

[She laughs, giving a flippant wave of her hand.]

He's a bit like a five year old on sugar a good deal of the time, though, so I'm sure he manages just fine.
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-15 06:07 am (UTC)(link)
Good! You companions have a habit of wandering off, so it can be hard to keep up with you.
teamug: (oh really?)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-18 05:44 am (UTC)(link)
Wandering off?

[This is said with the confusion that only someone that doesn't wander off could have.]

Kinda the best way to get in trouble, isn't it? Staying where the Doctor tells me is the best way to make sure I stay safe.


[Pff you and your wandering off.]
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-18 06:26 am (UTC)(link)
[...what? A companion that gets the "Don't wander off" thing? For a moment, he just stares at her like he found a rare species of bird or something.]

That's...that's almost unheard of!
teamug: (you're really weird)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-18 07:21 am (UTC)(link)
Are the whole lot of you going to have that reaction?

[Because really, it's just weird.]

You're telling me that in all of time and space, everywhere and anywhere, there hasn't been anyone else that actually listens to you when it comes to wandering off? [Her nose wrinkles up.]

That's just properly bonkers.
beforethewar: (pic#5947098)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-18 08:00 am (UTC)(link)
Well...no, not usually. I tend to find people with a massive curiosity. It can be quite nerve-wracking at times.

Though it does always -- almost always -- turn out for the best.
teamug: (oh really?)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-18 08:16 am (UTC)(link)
You can be curious without laughing in the face of danger and inviting horrible things to happen by wandering off.

[Just saying.]
beforethewar: (pic#6002197)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-19 07:44 am (UTC)(link)
Well, yes. You're right.

I...suppose I may be a bit of a bad influence.
teamug: (we've got a badass over here)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-19 07:59 am (UTC)(link)
[She holds both hands up, and takes a teasing series of steps back and away from him.]

Dunno if I can handle another one of those, not in a Doctor shaped package. It might make something weird happen.
beforethewar: (pic#6750935)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-22 01:24 am (UTC)(link)
[Really, Clara.]

Since when was something weird a bad thing?
teamug: (how interesting)

[personal profile] teamug 2013-10-25 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
Nothing wrong with weird. Or dangerous, before you go asking that.

[Usually those two go hand in hand, with him.]

But there's weird, and then there's all the things that happen when I'm with you.
beforethewar: (pic#6697910)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-25 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
And you wouldn't have it any other way.

[Uh, Eight? That thing about being a bad influence?]
