[Suddenly standing before him is a wide-eyed Eighth Doctor, no longer the long-haired fop in the green velvet, but the more broken Eight of shorter curls and blue leather of...later in this incarnation.

His mouth works wordlessly for a moment, trying to work out how to react. And when his brain finally makes a decision, his face breaks out in a wide smile.]


Brax! And here I thought I'd never see you again.

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-07 10:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[He's… happy.] Would we be so lucky. Could I possibly blame you for this, or must I be sensible?
beforethewar: (pic#6002197)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-07 10:38 pm (UTC)(link)
No, I'm afraid you can't blame me for this one. We are both the unwitting "guests" of beings who claim to be Norse gods, who have conscripted us for their war to prevent Ragnarok.

[He shrugs]

I'd say that it's not so bad, but recently...it rather has been. You lucked out and arrived after it's over, and the "gods" have decided to make us feel better with a festival. Lucky you.
becauseichooseto: Standing hands behind his back (disapproval)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-07 10:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, so I've told. Something of an irony that, I will admit.

I'd say I'm sorry, but I'm not. [He's never sorry for strokes of good fortune. Still one worries.] I hope you beared through?

[There's a little shift in his demeanor at the question and he shoves his hands in his jacket pockets.]

Not...exactly, but it was worse for others, I assure you. Thiazi took control of me and used me to do terrible things. Thankfully, I've been cleaned of the corruption, but some of the people I killed won't be brought back like we Travelers are.

Still, it's over. For now.

[He gives him a look of understanding. These things happen. To Time Lords, anyway. He doesn't waste time with sympathy, however. The Doctor wouldn't know what to do with it if he got it.] A festival, you say?
beforethewar: (pic#6750935)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-07 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh, bless Brax. Good ol' Brax. Of course he doesn't know what to do with it, and has had it by the boatload ever since he came back from being cleansed. It was very kind and touching of them, and it helped, but...]

Yes! A festival, with a costume party, food, a masquerade ball and everything. One of my future selves is even running the costume contest.

[He grimaces just a bit.]

I apparently get...interesting in my old age.

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-08 10:06 am (UTC)(link)
I do enjoy a good party, I will admit. [He gives a huff at the comment about older selves.] So I've found. [But he doesn't particularly want to talk about his older selves.] How many of your selves are here?
beforethewar: (pic#6750937)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-11 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
[A wide grin spreads across his face. Oooh, Brax is going to just love this.]

Five of us, including myself. There was also a metacrisis copy of my Tenth incarnation...but he seems to have disappeared.

[The grin falters just a tad. It was never happy when one of them went away, and Eight had to admit, he was rather fond of that skinny lunatic.]
becauseichooseto: Miles Richardson in Midsomer Murders looking deeply unimpressed (ugh)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-11 11:12 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. Wonderful.

[... Little too busy being relieved to be sorry for you, Doctor, but he'll try.]

Sorry to hear that.

[Better tries were had, Brax.]

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-12 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
[He shakes his head.]

It's alright. I'll just hope he's going home to something happier than this place.

So, which of these "gods" decided to claim you?
becauseichooseto: Standing hands behind his back (well then)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-12 12:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[He nods, considering that possibility. It's better to be deciding your own destiny regardless, so he's probably going to be happier.]

Ah, Freyr. You?
beforethewar: (Default)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-12 08:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Sigyn, of course.

[As if there was any doubt.]

The healing can be quite useful. Not exactly perfect repayment for being stripped of most of who we are, but it will have to do.
becauseichooseto: miles richardson holding up a nice cup of tea and smiling cheekily (drama)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-12 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, indeed. [It's not as if he's unable to cope, but life was more comfortable knowing that he could track the flow of time, sense other Time Lords, even hypnotise people (though not ever something he relies on).] How does this healing work?
beforethewar: (pic#6697915)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-14 07:43 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not...entirely sure.

[Usually he hasn't had time to think about how it works, and the times he's used it, it hadn't worked very well due to how bad the damage was.]

It seems to be a matter of will, with the power to do it linked to our connection with our patron deity. I think all of them are.
becauseichooseto: Miles Richardson (as the Prime Minister) in a play  leaning over Bonnie (planning)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-14 12:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, that makes sense, to a degree, if we're all coming from different places.
beforethewar: (bush2)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-15 05:27 am (UTC)(link)
It does!

So...you haven't happened to meet anyone else today, have you?

[Always curious to know who Brax has already charmed the socks off of. Jealous? Of course not! ...much.]
becauseichooseto: Leaning against the wall (small smile)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-15 04:30 pm (UTC)(link)
...Not yet.

[He gives him a look.]

Is there someone I ought to be looking out for?

[All guilt innocence.]
beforethewar: (pic#6002197)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-18 05:54 am (UTC)(link)
Well, there's the rest of me, and a few companions.

Also, if you get verbally accosted by a teenager who calls himself Pyro, just ignore him. His bark is worse than his bite.
becauseichooseto: miles richardson holding up a nice cup of tea and smiling cheekily (Default)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-18 08:36 am (UTC)(link)
Such is the generally the case with teenagers. So what companions have come here?
beforethewar: (pic#6463608)

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-19 08:12 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, there are a few, though some have disappeared recently. Most of them are from my future, though, except for Jamie who is a friend from a long time ago.

[He hasn't run into Turlough yet.]

There's also a chap named Rory and a girl named Rose. Oh, and earlier today I met a new companion named Clara.

[There's a slight slump in his shoulders.]

Charley was here briefly, but she disappeared again. I...assume Romana told you about her at some point.
becauseichooseto: Miles Richardson staring towards the back with Gallifrey (gallifrey)

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-19 02:02 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm sorry. Yes, she did. It... came up. [That little incident surrounding her sister.]
beforethewar: (pic#6319678)

And now this thread is confusing because now Charley's back! /flail

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-22 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
They keep telling me she could always come back, but...it's been weeks. I've stopped keeping my hopes up.

Speaking of lovely ladies, how was Romana when you last saw her? I worry about her sometimes, and the last time we spoke, I'm afraid I was a bit hard on her.
becauseichooseto: Miles Richardson staring towards the back with Gallifrey (gallifrey)

I feel like I've gone and summoned her.

[personal profile] becauseichooseto 2013-10-22 04:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Anything's possible, of course, but going on with your life is important too.

Yes, you were. [He's not especially forgiving of that.] But she's well, the last I saw of her. Leela and... K9 are with her, so she's cared for. [He almost mentioned Narvin, but well, he's Narvin and CIA besides, so he doubted the Doctor cared much for him.]
beforethewar: (pic#6463608)

And that's never a bad thing, really.

[personal profile] beforethewar 2013-10-23 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
[A sigh. He really is sorry about that. It was a bad time for all of them, and he wasn't handling it well. And, well, the whole Zagreus business.]

Well, I'm glad she still has friends around her. I know how Gallifreyan politics can wear one down.
