PostSubject: Riddles in the Dark   Thu Sep 14, 2017 12:13 pm

After sending a text to the Doctor, to let him know the coordinates of where to find her at her new posting, Charity waited. She was on free time right now, after taking the last couple of weeks getting settled in and familiarized with her post orders and everything. A few exciting things had happened but otherwise it was boring on the planet Aquoshillon, and she was getting a bit restless for adventure. Thankfully, the Doctor was only a call or text away. She just hoped he got the message. All she could do was wait...

Once the familiar noise of the Tardis landing had begun to fill the air, Charity grinned and waited until it had fully materialized before quickly slipping inside. Since this was her free time, she was actually wearing civilian clothes for a change. Jeans and boots and a t-shirt; the sort of thing she'd have worn around the farm.
"Doctor!" She greeted him happily, almost bouncing into the Tardis Console room. "I missed you!" She announced, really glad to be back in the odd ship. Adopting a teasingly scolding tone, she asked, "You didn't go off having adventures without me, I hope?" Though she was smiling as she said it, to show she was just joking.

The Doctor yanked down the main lever, the TARDIS roaring through the time vortex and swirling towards its destination with wondrous speed. When the time machine landed, The Doctor quickly regained his balance and awaited the arrival of his friend Charity through the double doors. A light smile emerged on his face as he watched his friend burst through, "Hello again Charity" he welcomed her, "I'm guessing you fancy a get away?". Flicking switches as he moved around the control console, The Doctor tried to keep from expressing his overwhelming happiness at seeing her again. Unfortunately, for The Doctor, he couldn't help himself when he finally turned to face her as she approached him, "Well..." he began to answer her question, "I definitely tried..sort of got dropped with something. But it's definitely good to have you back".

Embracing Charity in a quick hug, The Doctor pulled back and turned his attention to the spiral staircase below the control room, "There's someone you should meet....Oi!!! Book mark the page for a moment, i've got someone you need to meet!" he called down. Turning back to Charity, The Doctor played off her teasing scold she had given him, "Now technically you were the last person through those doors that i invited..bit of a long story. I did try...sort of..well..for a minute or two before i got too antsy".

Charity grinned as she hugged the Doctor, happy to be back with her friend. Then she was quite surprised to hear that he had actually found another friend. She couldn't help wondering how much time had passed for him, since she saw him last, and was now quite curious about this other person.

In answer to his question, while waiting on the other person to emerge, she nodded a little.
"It's very boring on Aquoshillon." She pointed to the planet showing on the monitor, covered entirely in water and one single landing pad full of spaceships. "It's sort of a.. tourist planet, so I see a lot of different people every day," She said, including aliens when she said 'people'. "But I don't ever get to go below the surface and I feel like I'm mostly just there to direct the crowds to the line for the lift." She explained with a sigh. "Or, else, patrolling the spaceport area to make sure people aren't doing stupid things or trying to mess with the ships."

Brooke was quite comfy in a chair in the library, leaning in close to the book as she got quite absorbed in what was happening. Suddenly a voice broke through and interrupted. She blinked a couple of times as she looked up from it, taking a moment as she was slightly disoriented after being so intently wrapped up in the story; one she'd never read before, written several years ahead of her 'current day' time. With a quick glance back at the book, reluctant to tear herself away from it, then did a quick check to see how many pages were left before she reached the end of that chapter. Upon seeing that it was about three more pages, she sighed heavily and inserted a bookmark before slipping the book into her bag, next to her personal copy of Lord of the Rings, and stretched as she stood up, having no idea how long she might have been curled up in that position.

A moment later she entered the console room, fidgeting a bit timidly upon seeing another person there that she didn't know. She attempted a shy smile and found herself toying absently with the charms on her bracelet.
"Um, hi.." She waved a bit awkwardly and wondered if that was enough socialization so she could go back to finishing the book.

Charity gave her friendliest smile to the shy-looking girl who emerged.
"Hi! I'm Charity, nice to meet you." She said cheerfully.
"Brooke." She answered softly, relaxing ever so slightly thanks to Charity's friendly manner.
"Nice to meet you. So you're going to be joining us?" Charity said, with a genuine smile. Brooke shrugged slightly, mumbling,
"I guess so.." Though, she wasn't sure exactly of her place in this. They seemed to be good friends, and she didn't really know either of them, so she just felt a bit out of place and awkward.

Charity smiled at that.
"Glad to have you join us, Brooke." She told her, then turned to smile at the Doctor, a bit amused by his apparent awkwardness. "So, where are we heading? Anywhere fun and exciting?" She asked with a grin. Brooke listened curiously and didn't comment, wondering where they might go. Perhaps it would be somewhere historical, but she didn't feel like she had any right to make any requests, so she just figured wherever the he chose would be good enough.

The Doctor stood back for a moment, taking in the moment when Brooke finally met Charity; part of him scared that they may not like one another. However the conversation unfolded nicely, Charity showcasing her friendliness and Brooke becoming a little more comfortable with the situation. When the question arose of the next destination, The Doctor couldn't help but land his eyes on Brooke and the charms that she fiddled with. "Tell you what!" The Doctor proclaimed, turning his body and attention to the control console, "How about we try to solve one of the oldest mysteries in human history?".

With an emerging grin, The Doctor whipped around the console, flipping switches, turning nobs and adjusting various items before resting on the main lever. With a mighty thrust the TARDIS was sent bursting through the time vortex, the longer it was there the more it fell back in time and fixated it's sights on Earth. The interior rocked from side to side until easing down as it began to materialize at its destination. Standing up straight, The Doctor wore a brash grin as he looked towards the door then to both Brooke and Charity, "Behold!" snapping his fingers the doors flew open, "The great Li-" his announcement was cut short by the sight of five men using chisels on huge granite rocks.

White loincloths hung across their bodies with brown sandals to match, their attentions completely fixed on their work and unaware of the sudden emergence of the TARDIS. The Doctor frowned, "That's not right..way to ruin a showcase" he grunted as he reached down to turn a crank. With each turn the outside world sped up; the TARDIS zipping through time until stopping suddenly as it reached the correct time period. "There we are" The Doctor exhaled as he looked outside the doors; half of the view was partially obstructed by a large rock pillar to the right hand side, the other half showcased a large opening to an even bigger building. The building was made entirely of rock and cobblestone, it's vastness apparent by how little was visible from looking through the TARDIS doors. The smell of paper and ink filled the air, the sound of voices and footsteps echoed through the double wooden doors and lured The Doctor in.

Walking halfway down the ramp, The Doctor snagged his trench coat off the coral support beam and peered outside, "Looks like we parked at the entrance" he commented before looking back to Brooke and Charity, "Oh yeah, forgot to tell you. Welcome to the great library of Alexandria!".

Charity was instantly curious when the Doctor mentioned the oldest mystery in human history. She had no idea what that could be. She waited excitedly, grabbing onto something as the Doctor sent the Tardis traveling through time. Brooke, also curious, ventured a bit closer and held onto one of the support column things, and watched the Doctor work at the controls, somewhat interested in all the different levers and knobs and things.

When he flung the doors open, Charity bounced a little in excitement, prepared to eagerly explore this new place, but then he said it wasn't the right place and she frowned in disappointment.
"Aw.." Brooke had peeked curiously out the door from where she stood, but made a face slightly at the sight of men wearing almost nothing, and hid behind the pillar again. Then, before long, they were traveling again. Brooke watched as the Doctor adjusted the crank, curious but staying back quietly.

And then they were arriving at.. a library? Charity couldn't help a fleeting feeling of disappointment. A library? Books? They were alright and all but this didn't sound all that exciting.. she'd hoped for something fun and she couldn't really see much fun happening in some old library.. but seeing Brooke's reaction, she kept quiet and smiled, deciding to go with it and hope that maybe they'd get to go somewhere fun after that.

The library of Alexandria?! Brooke almost couldn't believe her ears. She widened her eyes and stepped out from behind the pillar.
"What? The library.. of ALEXANDRIA? I can't believe it.. Really?" She asked, shocked and incredibly excited. She ran to the door and stared out of it, then couldn't help grinning. "I don't believe it.. we can really go out there?" She asked hopefully, barely refraining from zooming out the door.

While Brooke was eagerly awaiting permission to rush out to explore this library.. though Charity couldn't imagine what might be so special about it, it was clear that there was something that excited the girl about this place.. she stepped a bit closer to the Doctor.
"After this, are we going somewhere a bit more exciting?" She whispered, a bit hopefully. Although, the mystery thing he'd mentioned had her curious.

The Doctor nodded his head to Brooke, "What else would we come here for? Just don't wonder off!" he replied to her before turning his attention to Charity. A light chuckle erupted from The Doctor as he slung his arm over her shoulder and began to walk down the ramp after Brooke, "Oh come on Chare! Don't you smell that?! Knowledge! The peak..well..ancient times..peak of intelligence, who wouldn't want to be here?!" he proclaimed. "Besides..every time that i've gone to a library it hasn't exactly gone well" The Doctor added before snatching his trench coat from the coral support beam and stepping out in the new world.

Scholars and citizens alike marched up the elegant steps leading towards the overwhelmingly large entrance to the library. Pillars, that held up the roof, stood in front of the door like bars to a cage; the entrance was so wide a hundred people standing side by side could fit inside. The Doctor looked up at the carvings on the lining marble of the entrance in amazement and growing excitement as the smell of newly etched scrolls filled the air. "Human ingenuity! Brilliant!" He proclaimed with a grin before looking back to Charity and nudging his head towards the interior of the library, "Come on, it'll be fun. Promise".

Brooke grinned and hurried out of the Tardis, then stopped and stared around her as she took in the scene. She was standing in front of the Great Library of Alexandria!

Charity held back a sigh and smiled at the Doctor.
"Alright, if you say so." She smiled and looked at the place. It did look rather impressive, though she wondered what was the big deal about it. She supposed she'd find out before too long. Maybe they'd be able to do more exciting things than sit around and read.

Brooke was anxious to run in and start having a look around, but she stopped herself as she realized something. She ran back into the Tardis.
"I can't wander around there dressed like this.. can I?" She motioned to her jean skirt and tee shirt and sneakers. "I have to get into the proper attire for the time era.. you know?" She explained, hesitating a bit. It would be fun to dress like the locals, but also to wander around in ancient Egypt dressed in clothes from the 2000's would probably draw some odd looks.

Charity grinned a little at the girl.
"I'll show you where we can find costumes." She told her. "We'll be back." She told the Doctor, motioning for Brooke to come along with her. As they headed into the Tardis, she asked, "What is this place anyway? What's all the excitement about a library for?" Brooke, walking with Charity, stared at her for a bit in shock that she didn't know.
"It's the famous library of Alexandria!" She replied, then, seeing Charity's blank look, she took a breath and launched into an explanation about it.

A few minutes later they returned, dressed in appropriate attire for the era. Brooke was just finishing,
"During Caesar's Civil War, Julius Caesar was besieged at Alexandria in 48 BC. Many ancient sources describe Caesar setting fire to his own ships and state that this fire spread to the library, destroying it.. which is just so awful." She sighed heavily. Charity was nodding slowly as she listened to this lengthy explanation.
"That is pretty sad all this was ruined." She commented, glancing at the impressive structure. "But, at least it's here now?" She added with a smile. "You can admire it all you want while we're here, Brooke." In reply to that, Brooke smiled, brightening as she put thoughts out of her head of the place burning, and adjusted her bag which rested at her side as usual.
"I can't wait." She said with a big smile, proving this by heading toward it without waiting for the other two.

The Doctor outside the doors of his TARDIS, his hands resting nonchalantly in his pockets and trench coat billowing in the nice cool breeze as it passed by. "So this is what it's going to be like having two women traveling with me at once...I may have took on more than i could handle" He mumbled with a slight chuckle at the thought of them thinking they had to change to fit the times. As he waited, The Doctor watched the various scholars and citizens pass by, none paying too much attention to The Doctor nor his out of the ordinary blue police box.

As he waited his mind began to wonder, Am i out of style? he thought to himself, looking down at his suit and trench coat, Nah! Come on Doctor! You look fantastic. With a smirk, The Doctor exhaled and stepped out from leaning against the TARDIS and approached the entrance. His eyes fixed up at the carvings above the door and over on the pillars that welcomed each person that ascended the stairs. Inside he wondered what would happen to this magnificent building and all the knowledge that lay inside. Would it be destroyed by Caesar? Or was there something else to do with the sudden destruction of the library? The Doctor had always wondered and he was finally about to find out; excitement grew and anticipation sky rocketed to an all time high as he waited for the girls to come out of the TARDIS. I wonder if they'd notice if a few scrolls were missing? No best not steal...well..wouldn't exactly be stealing, more like preserving if you think about it

Brooke eagerly hurried up the steps to the library, stopping in the entrance to just take it all in. She couldn't believe this. It was like some sort of wonderful dream. She inhaled the wonderful scent of books and paper and parchment. Smoothing the Egyptian style dress she was wearing, she set off to explore the rows and rows of bookshelves. She paused to pull out a scroll here and there, figuring she wouldn't be able to understand it, as it was probably hieroglyphics or Latin or something, but was surprised to find that she understood it perfectly.

She widened her eyes, which eagerly skimmed over the scroll. There was no excitement quite like finding a new book.. but this was beyond that. These were scrolls which had been destroyed for ages, and here she was, able to read one! She could barely contain her excitement. She might have even been something close to giddy, and rushed along to another bookshelf to find more scrolls to see. There were so many books here.. books about mathematics, astronomy, physics, natural sciences, and so many others. How many were there in this library? If only she had a few years to spend here.. she might just be able to read them all. And this was only a small part of it! She remembered that there was a museum and stuff here too, and made up her mind she was going to have to go and see all of that before they left.

Then it popped into her mind that these books wouldn't be here much longer. This entire library would be destroyed.. when? The Doctor had said that he wanted to solve the mystery.. that had to be 'how this library was destroyed'. Which meant, he'd probably chosen to bring them to the library very shortly before it burned.

She stopped in her tracks as the horror of it dawned on her. She stood in the middle of the aisles of the huge library, staring sadly at the scrolls surrounding her, and thinking how awful it was that they would be gone, forever, very soon. Glancing back down at the scroll in her hand, she hesitated before looking around a little, then quietly slipped it into her bag, hoping no one would notice, before going on in search of other scrolls, wondering how she could possibly hope to pick a few to save among all these thousands...

Charity smiled slightly as she watched Brooke hurry excitedly into the library. She shook her head a bit in amusement and trailed along with the Doctor, looking around.
"It is impressive." She commented to the Doctor, fighting a bit with the long dress Brooke had insisted she had to wear for this time era. She looked around. "Where are we, anyway? They dress kinda funny.." She frowned about that, but did notice that all the other women around them were dressed similarly, so she figured Brooke must be right about it. She still preferred her own clothes, and decided in future trips to let Brooke dress up in the 'proper attire' and she'd just hope no one cared how she was dressed.

The Doctor chuckled slightly at the sight of Charity visibly upset with her current attire, "Egypt" he quickly responded to her with a sniff, "Just by the coast to be exact allowing boats to sail in along with the usual people coming from the town". The Doctor stopped conversing with Charity for a moment to gaze his eyes on the seemingly endless racks of scrolls around him. Stone statues of heads of famous people stood at the corners of shelves. The brown and white marble floors glimmered and shined beneath their shoes; paints lined the ceiling above exhibiting images of Gods and magical beings.

Although his eyes trailed the beauty's around him, The Doctor made sure to try and keep an eye out for Brooke despite how hard it was to keep track of her. All he could manage were blurs that would pass by and through book shelves as though she had adopted the powers of The Flash. The Doctor smirked at the thought of Brooke being The Flash before turning his attention to Charity next to him. "I know it's not you're cup of tea" He started, reaching into his suit jacket and pulling out his psychic paper, "But i figured you'd be interested in this" he added before handing it over to her.

Placing his hands into his pockets, The Doctor began to look around once more, "Don't usually get messages from her..but when i do, they're kind of important". As he spoke he thought back to the psychic message he had received, Check out the library of Alexandria..there's something you should borrow..xoxo sweetie.

Charity listened to the explanation about the place, recalling something Brooke said about ships who came in this port having to surrender their books. She glanced around for some spaceships before realizing he meant water ships. Blushing faintly, she realized this civilization must be too underdeveloped for spacecraft, and nodded a little in reply to the Doctor as they entered the library.

She looked around, impressed by all the stuff, and couldn't help smiling a little.
"It is nice here." She commented, though she had never much liked being stuck inside having to do her schoolwork and preferred running off into the forest to explore and play with her brothers.. climbing trees and exploring caves and stuff, rather than sitting around reading and stuff. Still, she couldn't deny that the place was incredible, and very impressive.

Then there was something more interesting to think about, as the Doctor handed her the note he had. She tilted her head, looking curiously at it as she read the words, and looked questioningly at him.
'Who's it from? What should we be looking for?" she asked, frowning since the note didn't say WHAT to borrow.

Brooke wandered in and out of the various aisles, trying to see everything she possibly could. If only she had a few more weeks here to explore.. she might be able to get a better look at everything. She wondered, though, whether they couldn't just come back here whenever they wanted to.. if they had a time machine and all, why not? But, then there was the thing about crossing your own timeline, sorta like with Harry, Ron and Hermione using the Timeturner, they had to be sure not to let their past selves see themselves and all that. She imagined it could get rather confusing, so.. as disappointing as it was, she figured this might be her only chance to come to this place. Thereore, she had to make the most of it while they were here.

Wandering into one of the lecture halls, she figured that she probably wouldn't be able to understand a word being said, but thought it might still be interesting to take a peek in there. But, to her surprise, she understood exactly what they were saying. How strange.. she couldn't help wondering why they were speaking in English.

She stood listening to the man giving a lecture about mathematics, and recognized quite a lot of what he was saying, from geography and calculus classes she'd taken in high school. Fascinated by what the man was saying, she found herself temporarily forgetting other stuff, and smiled a little. Some of it was familiar, but some was actually a bit new, as if it were new things this guy had discovered and was explaining to these scholars. She noticed a few people wandering in and out of the lecture hall, perhaps some got bored? But she couldn't imagine being bored by this stuff, and ventured a little further in to find a seat so she could better listen.
