FIC: Innocence Debate (1/1)

Title: Innocence Debate
Genre: Doctor Who
Rating: T
Author: tkel_paris
Summary: A random comment from the Doctor triggers a challenge from Donna.
Disclaimer: Not mine, never mine. Insert sad face.
Dedication: bas_math_girl, with whom I finally shared a crack!fic-a-thon with. After a few false starts. And anyagotr’s husband, David, for saying the line that I knew had to be used as a prompt.
Author’s Note: Decided to use a line prompt that I wrote down from one night with Whovian friends who used to live in the Valley. Dialogue only, which I’m not sure I’ve ever done for DW.

Innocence Debate

Started June 25, 2016
Finished June 25, 2016

“I seem perfectly innocent to me.”

“You what?”

“What? I am innocent! I’m the picture of innocence!”

“The day you truly are innocent is the day the universe will stop from shock, Sunshine!”

“Donna! That’s not fair! And why are you laughing?”

“Because you should have seen the look on your face, Spaceman. ‘That’s not fair’ is a line only teenagers and the absolutely spoilt use when things don’t go their way in an argument. Calmly noting it about a situation where there’s no argument is different, but you? It makes you look less like the old man you say you are and more like an overgrown man-child.”


“Yeah. A man who acts like a child when things don’t go his way. Did you travel with a lot of people who did that, revert to childhood instead of taking things on the chin?”

“Um… point taken.”

“So… going to take back your words?”

“But I did think I was innocent! I’m not always up to something!”

“True, but you have to admit that my innocent face is better than yours. You didn’t know that I had eaten the last of the digestives until I bought more.”

“You could have told me!”

“Just as you could have told me about what you were planning today. We might not have been chased if you had.”

“How was I supposed to know that -?”

“That’s always your refrain, isn’t it? You can’t have the TARDIS run a little check to make sure you got the date and time right?”

“Where’s the fun in that?!”

“Maybe knowing you had the chance to save more people?”


“Point to me!”

“Can’t you be nice to a man when he’s down?”

“Yeah. I can.”

“Then why aren’t you now?”

“Because you haven’t yet realized just how daft your words sounded.”


“Think about what you said. Now imagine you heard someone else saying it. How smart does it sound now?”

“Point taken. All right, it was silly of me.”

“There, that wasn’t so hard, was it?”

“Have you thought about how embarrassing it is?”

“Chin up. At least I’m the only witness.”

“Small comfort.”


“Please, may we drop it?”

“Fine. But one of these days you’d better think before we go somewhere.”

“Fine. I’m thinking. Can I have a hug now?”

I suppose she did. After a little puppy eyes from him. :D

Well done! Donna is totally right, on all counts. The Doctor often behaves like a man-child!

Best of all is, when all is said and done, the Doctor asks Donna for a hug. That's just beyond cute and adorable!

Especially this incarnation. Which might be part of his charm, but... not always.

And I didn't say what her answer was, did I? :)

I haven't read more than the first 3 lines and we are both her going "That's our conversation!!!!" And rolling on the floor. I can't wait to read all of this!!

I just had the urge to use it. TM thought it was funny. And you can tell Mummy did, too. :D

Wow! You're on a writing spree!

Donna slaps on him as soon as he's being childish ;D
Good for her!

Yeah, a bit of one. Here's aiming to continue it with Camp NaNo. :D

Well, he needs the reminder. Makes him easier to respect. :)
