PostSubject: The Oncoming Darkness   Thu Jul 13, 2017 6:17 pm

It was a bit of a struggle, standing still and not chewing her fingernails as she stood with several other officers. It was hard not to fidget, either, but she managed to stand at attention properly and looked nice in her uniform. She was, of course, in her dress uniform; a dark blue, freshly pressed skirt and blazer and a button up shirt, bearing Imperial Galactic Forces insignia on the blazer, and a hat that went with the uniform as well. She didn't hear much of the speeches going on, but she knew that some of them were about her, and couldn't help blushing a little in embarrassment as they talked about how the Destiny was shot down, and how she acted bravely and things. She had tried to tell them that she'd had help, and that the Doctor had a lot to do with rescuing the people, but they insisted that she did a lot of brave things too so here she was, waiting to accept a medal for it.

Looking out at the crowd seated in the large auditorium, she was pleased to see that her mother and brothers had come, along with Daniel's wife and kids, and Felicia.. was sitting right beside Josh who had apparently asked her to a few dances and things. It would seem that the two were going together now, which didn't surprise her that much considering how Josh had been pretty stricken with her from the moment he met Felicia. Charity wished Keith could have come but he was busy with his navy duties and had only been able to call and congratulate her. Then, to her surprise, as she scanned the crowd, she saw another person that was there for her. Her smile brightened a bit when she saw the Doctor there, and she had to fight to keep from raising her hand to wave at him.

Almost missing her cue, she quickly snapped her attention back to her superior and stepped forward to receive her medal. She was still embarrassed but it was also an honor, and she couldn't help feeling a bit proud and excited too. The rest was a bit of a blur, and she didn't really catch much of what was said. Before too long, the ceremony was over and Charity lost sight of the Doctor as she went to join her family, but she figured he would find his way through the crowd to join them shortly.

The Doctor waved at Charity as she looked over to him from the stage, his grin shinning from ear to ear until someone accidentally bumped into him and shifted his attention away from Charity. "Sometimes i hate crowds" He mumbled, arching his eyebrow as he glanced around the vast formal award ceremony. Various men and women went on stage throughout the ceremony, giving their record of Charity's bravery that ultimately saved their lives, some of which The Doctor had recognized and others not. Noticeably Charity's family were on the right hand side of the auditorium, the enthusiasm and group size alone pointed them out among the masses. The Doctor was positioned at the edge of one of the door ways, having been unable to secure a seat with his late arrival. Had it not been for the issue with transporting The Collector to a safe world, The Doctor would have arrived on time.

Luckily, The Doctor arrived just in time before the ceremony had begun; parking the TARDIS off to the side of one of the nearby hallways inside of the auditorium and out of view. The Doctor watched as Charity finally went on stage, receiving her medal and executing a well thought out acceptance speech. The crowds slowly began to evaporate after the speech had stopped, giving way to The Doctor locating the snack bar to the left hand side of the auditorium floor. The Doctor's eyes grew wide with joy as he walked over to the table, "Nibbles! They've got nibbles! I love nibbles!" he proclaimed.

A man on the opposite end of the table watched in horror as The Doctor gobbled down various snacks before beginning to build a pyramid of them in both his arms. The Doctor looked up at the man, "Sorry..gotta pack for the road" he mumbled before scurrying away from the snack table, "Yeah.." the man said confused. Glancing around the auditorium, The Doctor began to look for Charity as he popped in another snack. Maneuvering through the crowd, his eyes laid on his friend and her family and he quickly approved them, "Sorry..they had nibbles and i couldn't resist" he explained, mouth half full with cracker, "Want some?".

Charity was pretty sure her speech was horrible, that she'd been too visibly nervous and uncomfortable about having to give it, but she hoped that no one would say so. She hugged her mother and brothers and Felicia, and picked up her toddler niece Emily while glancing around to spot the Doctor. Rolling her eyes slightly to see him loading up a plate at the snack table, she turned and began talking with Josh and Felicia for a bit while, figuring the Doctor would eventually show up once he'd got enough snacks.

Finally he was there, and she grinned as she turned to him.
"I was wondering what was taking you so long.. you know they've got plates, right?" She laughed at the sight of him carrying all that in his arms, and shook her head a bit at his offer of snacks. "No, thanks though." She smiled and moved Emily a little away from him when she tried to grab something from his plate of snacks. "Doctor, this is my brother Daniel, his wife Helen, and their little girl Emily. And the baby is David." She smiled and set the kid down. "This is my friend the Doctor." She introduced them, since Daniel and his family weren't there when the Doctor met the others. While her family greeted him with friendly and polite things like 'nice to meet you' and 'Oh it's nice to see you again Doctor', she couldn't help wondering if the Doctor was here to visit or if he had some exciting adventure planned, and if so, how to get away from her family without just abruptly leaving.

The Doctor grinned, shaking the hand of her brother Daniels hand as it was offered, "Hello! Nice to meet you all. Lovely family you have here, must be proud of Charity, she's got a big heart..bigger than mine for sure". Glancing over to Charity, The Doctor winked as he tossed in another cracker into his mouth, "Oh! Speaking of ceremony's, i almost forgot my present!". Brushing his clothes off, The Doctor began searching through his pockets; coming up short on most of his pockets The Doctor finally yanked out a small box wrapped in TARDIS blue paper. With a smile, The Doctor handed it over to her, "Go on, you deserve it. But that's only part of your gift, I've got something else as well...can't exactly give it out here, i'd need more...space".

As he awaited for Charity, The Doctor thought back to the first moment he had met her and all the adventures they had together since. Remembering her aid in the release of the Star Whale, The Doctor couldn't think of a better candidate for an owner of a TARDIS key. Over time his trust in the young lady had grown, along with a fondness of her ever present excitement and joy. Inside he was glad to add her to the list of companions whom he had given a key to his TARDIS; his excitement grew as he thought of the special place he had planned to take her. First family that didn't give me a slap soon after meeting me...must be getting better

((Not much to say with this one, didn't want to talk for your characters))

Charity smiled as the Doctor greeted her brother. She wished Keith had been there but she also understood that he couldn't abandon his duties. Daniel thanked the Doctor for the compliment, and then almost right after that, he excused himself because he had to take baby David away to be changed. Charity observed that Josh and Felicia had wandered over to the snack table, while Helen, after the introduction to the Doctor was over, had sat down with Emily trying to keep her entertained. Charity smiled slightly before turning back to the Doctor upon hearing that he had a gift for her.
"Oh, a gift?" She said in surprise. "You didn't have to.." She smiled anyway and took the blue-wrapped box curiously. She grinned a bit. "I like the color." She commented, noticing that it was Tardis blue, but didn't comment out loud. She opened the box and looked curiously at the key, then smiled as she figured out what it went to. She smiled as she took it out of the box.

"I can't wait to see what the rest is." She said with a small grin. Her mother, standing nearby, appeared to be curious.
"What could that be for?" Charity hesitated a bit.
"Well.. I'll just go and see." She smiled at her mom. "Don't worry, I don't think I'll be gone too long, but.. I might meet you at home later, ok?" She gave her mom a quick hug and then smiled to the Doctor. "Alright, lead the way then." She said a bit excitedly, pretending to have no idea what the key might go to.
"Be careful, Charity." Her mother said, concerned that this might be some sort of vehicle or something that could be driven, and worried since she wasn't sure if Charity knew how to drive anything of that nature.
"I will. Love you, mom." She smiled back at her before going along wherever the Doctor would lead her.

The Doctor waved back at Charity's mom as she watched them walk away, a face of concern plastered across her face. Placing his hands, nonchalantly, into his pockets The Doctor lead the way to the TARDIS; exiting through one of the tunnels and turning right into the corresponding hallway. Towards the back of the hallway, the TARDIS stood; the light atop the blue box called to them and the lights from behind the two windows shined bright, lighting up the hallway. Once the two had approached the infamous time machine, The Doctor stepped to the side and motioned to the door with his head, "Wanna give it a try?" he asked her as he leaned up against the side of the door.

"It'd be best if she got used to you seeing that your not just a casual flyer anymore" The Doctor added, glancing up at his time machine, "The key is connected to the TARDIS mainframe. It's a part of the TARDIS itself, it will help secure the bond with you two" The TARDIS released a groaning sound from the engines; the sound echoing out from the between the double doors. The Doctor rolled his eyes, "Oh stop it, you know you like her" he replied to the TARDIS with a smirk, "Just for that i'll let her fly you, i've already got our destination preset into the TARDIS so all you have to do is pull down that lever, you think you're up to it?" he asked Charity.

Watching her, The Doctor began to think back to the first time Charity and himself had met back on the Destiny crash and subsequent battle to save innocent souls. Since then so much had happened, a trust between himself and Charity had formed and a slight fondness. She helped him see the excitement in traveling again; he hoped to be able to return the favor by providing her with an adventure that won't nearly kill her, Hopefully i picked the right place The Doctor thought.

Charity eagerly followed the Doctor, while admiring the key in her hands. She just knew it was for the Tardis, and she was really excited about that, even though she couldn't tell her family such a thing. She wondered where he had the Tardis parked, but before long they had found it. She smiled as she saw the ship down the hall, and wondered, if anyone saw it, would they think it odd? Most likely. Hopefully no one had seen it there. At the Doctor's question, she grinned and nodded.
"I'd love to." She bounced forward a bit with the key in hand, pausing to listen as the Doctor explained that the key was actually a part of the Tardis. That was really interesting! She smiled and put the key in, opening the door for them both.

Once inside, she looked around at the inside of the ship with a smile, sliding her blazer off because it was actually quite hot to wear it. She couldn't imagine how the Doctor could wear a suit and a trenchcoat all the time. He might not get as hot as humans, or something. After tucking the medal into the pocket of her blazer, she laid it aside on a chair, carefully. Then she turned to stare wide eyed at the Doctor when he said something about her flying the Tardis.
"What? No, but I don't know how to..." She started to protest, but trailed off when he said all she had to do was pull a lever. "Oh.. well, if that's all.. then sure." She grinned, excited at the idea of doing that. Where would they be going? She was so curious! But all she had to do was pull a lever down and they'd be on their way.. so what was she waiting for? She walked over to the console. "This one?" She questioned, glancing at the Doctor for verification before she gripped the correct lever and, while full of nervousness and excitement, she pulled it down to send them off to wherever they were going.

The Doctor grin as he watched her take over the controls and thrust the main lever down; his excitement growing as the TARDIS engines churned to life and roared with power. Grabbing onto the side of the console, The Doctor balanced and prepared himself for the inevitable thud that marked the successful landing of his time machine. With a light bounce, the TARDIS landed; softer than The Doctor had expected, "Well then...maybe i should have you fly more often" he joked as he straightened up and looked over to the doors.

Elegant music could now be heard playing, along with faint voices and footsteps from outside of the wooden doors. Quickly moving the scanner away from Charity, so she couldn't see where they were, The Doctor turned attention towards the door. "Once in a life time experience!" He proclaimed, "Not usually my cup of tea but i figured you might like it...and besides, i sort of owe you for every stop we make it ends up life threatening" he elaborated.

Raising his hand, The Doctor snapped his fingers which resulted in the double doors flying open revealing the outside scenery. The immediate outside of the doors only showed a nicely lit hallway, metal covered the floors and ceiling and card readers hugged the wall next to each room door. Looking back, The Doctor sighed, "Sorry..looks like we're in a hallway.." he mumbled, "Oh well, should just be around the corner! Ms. Charity would you care to accompany me on board the Grantham maiden voyage?". Extending his arm out, The Doctor looked back to Charity with an emerging grin, "I made sure to bring a banana this time".

Charity was really kind of surprised by the soft landing, wondering how she would have managed to do that when she doesn't have any idea how to fly a ship. She still remembered her attempts at flying the crashing Destiny, but that was of course extenuating circumstances.. that ship had been crashing already and apparently, her efforts to pilot it despite not knowing how had saved a lot of lives. She grinned at the Doctor saying she should fly more often.
"Sure, but you'd have to tell me what to do and when." She smiled and looked toward the doors curiously. They had landed now. What could be beyond the doors? She could hear music, and voices. Who was there? Where had they just landed? She was dying to know!

Grinning at the Doctor, she still wondered where he could have brought her.
"Once in a lifetime?" She asked teasingly. "You mean we couldn't just return anytime we want to.. considering it's a time machine?" She pointed out, mostly just teasing about that. "You don't owe me though." She smiled. "That stuff just makes it even more exciting." She laughed, heading toward the doors, eager to see what lay beyond them.

She couldn't help a bit of amusement to hear that they were in a hallway. But, smiling anyway, she responded,
"The hallway is probably best anyway, isn't it? That way there isn't as many people to witness the ship appearing out of thin air, and drawing attention to us and everything." She pointed out. After hearing where they were, her eyes widened slightly in wonder and a bit of excitement. Whatever that was, it just sounded really awesome and exciting. She grinned as she went to join him and took his offered arm, but paused at the doors, glancing at him. "Is this a formal sort of place? Should I change or anything?" She asked, since she was still wearing her uniform. It was nice enough, being her dress uniform, but she could dress up more if needed.. She'd even worn an actual dress a couple of times before.
