A/N: here it is the first chapter of the LONG awaited Adult version of Ties that Bind. Eventually I'll get back to making graphics, but hey, you all love me anyway, right?
Short Summary: Sequel to Doctor Who and the Great Eclipse. The TimeWar left him shattered & alone. Experiments left her shattered & open. The tools for revenge also form a web that cannot be broken. Before he met Rose, The Doctor had to survive meeting Her... A Doctor Who / Firefly / Riddick (Dark Fury) crossover.
Summary: The Doctor, reeling from the effects of the TimeWar as the last surviving TimeLord, stumbled into a situation he was unable to ignore when the TARDIS landed him inside a ship clearly in trouble. After the rescue, he found himself left with eight survivors that he must somehow get to safety. But the situation was not as cut and dry as he might like. His people may be gone, but the stamp he’d made on the universe still existed, and he discovered himself caught in a web spun of the choices made in the past…
2517; Something in the past prompted humanity to explode out from their home world. Could the events of 2164 be responsible? Was Earth a myth or was it real? In fleeing Earth-that-Was, humanity scattered to the stars across the galactic arm. Initial survey teams targeted likely planets and systems for habitation and not all of them ended up on the same side of the sector. Blue Sun exists on one side, separated by a patch of ‘wild space’ filled with exotic binary and triple star systems, from the rest of civilized space. Few ships brave the route. But luck had it that one ship did. Risking a ghost run, the only contact that the two sides have, the Hunter-Gratzner crashed midway through its journey. Original Port of Departure: Eavesdown Docks, Persephone. Mixed Sino-Anglo culture. Original Port of Call: Tangiers-5. Darkside. Mixed Islamic-Anglo culture. Crew complement: Four. Passengers: Forty. Living ‘Cargo’: Two. Survivors: Eight plus One
So what happens to Dr. Simon Tam, his brilliant but damaged sister, a convicted murder by the name of Richard B. Riddick, and the other survivors from the crash of the Hunter-Gratzner at planet M-344/G-2 now that they are on their way home? What secrets does Jack B. Badd hold? And just how is this related to the TimeWar?
A Doctor Who / Firefly / Riddick cross-over.
Features Doctor 9, Rose Tyler, The cast of “Firefly”, and the survivors from Pitch Black: Carolyn Fry, William J. Johns, Imam Abu al’Walid, ‘Jack B. Badd’, Ali Abdullah, and Richard B. Riddick…
Doctor Who and the Ties that Bind.
The TARDIS sat, rather innocently, in the Time Vortex. The human passengers had no idea that the ship was delaying at all, being that they expected there to be time in transit. Normally such a small hop would have been quite fast and easily done. Only this was not a normal situation. One would think that being a Time Lord would make one aware of such things, but for several sleep cycles the pilot of the rather cranky and headstrong living ship remained oblivious the situation, trying one trick after another to ease her out of the vortex. She thwarted each one without causing him further pain.
Nothing the Doctor did could force her to budge if she didn't want to. That was the nature of their bond. They were equal partners in this adventure of their life. So she retained her free will, so rare a thing in her species, and found that the emotions (ones she wasn't supposed to have) of fear and worry made her protective enough to refuse his commands to exit into normal space. She'd not be the cause of more pain if it would kill him. Even if she had to cause him some to convince him of it. Well, she had been forced to zap him, after all. It wasn't her fault that he found the remains of some old override that he tried to repair... It had been the one thing that would have involuntarily made her materialize.
