Fic: ‘He needs another hat.’  
Title: He needs another hat.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: After The Wedding of River Song, season 6.
Summary: He and the TARDIS have a chat.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I couldn’t help myself, I truly couldn’t. I had a lot of fun writing Facing his reality that I was wondering if I could write a whole story without using the voice interface and it’s just him and the TARDIS.

I think I did okay.

He sits quietly, alone. His hands behind his head, he looks at the ceiling.

“I’ve been too loud.” His sentence echoes around the console. “Too many people know me,” he concludes. “I’m going to slink back into the shadows where I belong.”

Silence is his only reply.

“Don’t be like that,” he chides. “Wouldn’t you rather we just travel without a religious order chasing us?”

The lights briefly dim.

“No, the pretty one cannot come.”

The lights lower, almost enveloping him in darkness.

“Yes, I know you mean Rory,” he answers, straightening before he stands. “But,” he raises a finger, “they deserve us not to be in their lives. I’d like the Williams’—”

Complete darkness.

“All right, the Ponds,” he corrects; the darkness lightens as he walks, “to be safe. Besides, I don’t need anyone else but you.” He leans on the console and pats its edge. “Sexy,” he whispers.

The darkness is completely leavened.

He grins and spins to face the console, flipping a knob and twirling with a clap of his hands. Then he stills, his expression downcast.

A questioning hum surrounds him. He looks once more at the ceiling.

“I need,” he announces solemnly, “another hat.”

The console column pulses warmly.

He turns to face it once more. “I’m glad you agree.”

You know; this really makes me think of the similarities between the current Doc and the 4th. Less obvious than the ones between the 11th and the 2nd or 3rd; but still very clear.

Yeah it does. They're both quite... eccentric in dress sense; even by the Doctor's standards.

Is it the tweed and the bowtie?
