PostSubject: Dancing on the Razor's Edge   Sun Aug 18, 2013 12:45 pm

The sound of a gentle surf reached his ears as the Doctor landed on the planet of Varr. Stepping out of the TARDIS doors, he studied the area with a slight frown on his face. There had been a distress call coming from this location, but for the lives of him, he couldn't pinpoint the exact place that it originated from. Suddenly the sun slipped out from a band of clouds, shining on the sand in front of him, causing it to light up with a bright reflection. "Aha!" He said suddenly, shielding his eyes as he crouched down and picked up a handful of the stuff and studied it closer with a grin on his face. "Silver sand, now that is fantastic." Letting it drop to the ground, he noted it left his skin with a faint metallic tint to it.

Brushing it on the side of his pants idly, he wandered along the beach, searching for anything that might have sent out the distress signal that his ship had locked onto, his eyes squinted against the glittering sand as he walked along. Suddenly a glint caught the corner of his eye, making him turn his head to the side and spot what looked like a small pole of metal sticking out of the beach. Striding over, he crouched down and brushed the sand to the side, uncovering a small control panel that blinked a green light up at him, indicated it was active. "There you are... Now who activated you? I don't see anyone, so that leaves..." He trailed off curiously, for once drawing a blank on the explanation as it eluded his grasp. "I don't know, but we'll find out." He finally muttered, tapping in a couple of keys and bringing up a display in front of him.

"Oh, your old, a beauty, but old. A surface scanner! When the human empire expanded, they placed these on planets that looked as if they could hold life and scanned the surface for any life-forms and to test the environment to see if it was habitable..." The Doctor trailed off, realizing he was talking to no one once more. "I'm starting to act like my older version..." He mumbled with the shake of a head then continued examining the scanner in silence.

A different time. A different world.

Nate left the bar. He was supposed to have met a friend for drinks but the friend hadn't shown up. It was hardly unusual. Nate's eyes caught on something. Not many people would have noticed the faint blue flash that had just happened to Nate's left. Nate entered the thin alleyway, his eyes narrowed. "What have we here?" he muttered with a grin as he saw a blue cat with a red streak of fur down its back scavenging through the bins. "You look like a Lionel to me. Yes, I'll call Lionel. Well, Lionel, What can I do for you?" The cat looked up. "I need you to retrieve a rare element from the planet Varr for me." Lionel said, his collar flashing as he spoke.

Nate examined the scenario in his head for a moment and decided he'd probably had a bit too much to drink. "How am I getting to the planet Varr though?" he asked deciding to play along. The cat seemed frustrated and almost rolled its eyes. It got more frustrated when it realised it couldn't roll its eyes. "I'll send you. There may be some time displacement but don't worry it will all be fine in the end. You're looking for Lubzidius Nitrocide." Lionel's voice was raspy and thin yet clear and commanding. Nate nodded his head. "Sure." Nate grinned then turned to leave his hallucination. Lionel's collar flashed green. Nate was gone.

Looking around, Nate realised he really really had had too much to drink. "I guess this is Varr..." he muttered, "Wonder how I'm breathing still. I blame the cat." he stuck his hands in his pockets and strolled towards what seemed like a blue police box.

With another grunt, the Doctor finally worked the device free from the soil and hefted it over his shoulder to take back to his TARDIS and study further before spotting a silhouette on the beach heading in the same direction as he was. "Ah, finally some life." He mumbled to himself, slightly miffed at how no one had come out to say anything while he was working on the scanner. Shifting the metal pole into a more comfortable position, he strode along the silver sand, heading towards the figure instead of his blue box.

Finally catching up to him, the Doctor fell into step beside the man, studying him in silence for a moment before looking back at his TARDIS, the easy smile he always wore slipping across his face. "Hello, I'm the Doctor. About time you showed up, mind, I was beginning to think that I had frightened you lot." He paused, looking over at the man, studying his clothing before shaking his head. "No, you aren't from here. Your clothes don't fit. About twenty first century or so, correct? Fantastic, I could use some help with this, do you know anything about computers?" He asked idly, fishing his TARDIS key from his pocket and slipping it into the lock once they reached it, opening the door wide as he strode inside and set the scanner down beside the controls. "Well come on in, don't keep the door open or we'll end up with whatever bugs they have on this planet."

Nate looked at the strange man that had just appeared. "Sure," he said with a shrug. "Wait. I know you! You're the man with the..." he made a strange gesture around the nose. Then he bit his lip for a moment and changed his mind. "No, sorry, I don't know you. That's a different man with the..." he made the gesture again. At that point a realisation hit him. He couldn't be drunk because he hadn't had anything to drink. That sucked. That meant all this was real. On the bright side: ALIENS. Nate did love some good aliens and stuff.

With a grin, Nate strode into the TARDIS and looked around. "Hmm..." he muttered in approval, "I'm guessing this is some kind of funky alien magic tech right? Makes it more... spacious." Nate glanced around again. "I ought to point out my knowledge of computers is limited to knowing what one is..."

the Doctor raised an eyebrow at the man before crouching down beside the scanner, pulling it into an upright position. "This is a planet-wide scanner. Early human colonies used this to study planets they might land on and use to see if it was habitable." He explained in a distracted tone, pulling his Sonic out so he could pry off the metal plate on the front. "How did you get here then? You weren't around when I landed." He asked finally, glancing over at the man then back to what he was doing.

"No vortex manipulator, no ship... You appeared out of no where. Actually, not no where, you did come from something." He added to himself, staring off into space as he thought over what he just said. Shaking his head suddenly, he flashed the man a wide grin on his face. "Anyway, like I said, I'm the Doctor, this is my TARDIS and this is the planet Varr, home of the silver beaches apparently. I picked up a distress call and came here to find who it was." He explained brightly, his attention shifting back to the scanner beside him idly, his fingers drumming on the top of it in thought. "What's your name?"

"Nate. Or if we're going for titles then Anonymous Chicken - Extraterrestrial Investigator." It took him a moment to realise there was question in the Doctor's babble but endeavoured to answer it when he did, "Lionel the cat sent me." he grinned. It occurred to him that this probably raised more questions than it answered. "TARDIS? is that a pet name for this..." he searched the word, "...machine?"

"Machine? Ha, she's alive." The Doctor proclaimed proudly, patting the controls as he did before casting a curious look over at the man. "Odd name, then again, I shouldn't be talking. Come on then, might as well go see what's out there while the TARDIS runs a scan on this hunk of metal." He said idly, striding over to the doors once more, passing the man on the way before pausing and looking over at him with a bright smile. "Come on then, get moving before I leave you behind." He said brightly, pulling the door open and stepping back out onto the silver sand once more. Looking up at the sky, he studied the sun for a moment before nodding to himself and striding across the beach towards the line of trees across from where they were.

Halfway there, he stopped and turned around, looking back at the man for a moment then scratched at his ear in thought. "Anonymous Chicken is a mouthful. I'll stick to Anonymous, yeah? And don't mind the sand, it turns your skin silver a little, but it goes away eventually. And on that topic, do you even know why he sent you here? Kind of odd- Hold on, did you say a cat sent you? As in... Earth cat? Pet?" The Doctor asked suddenly, realizing exactly what it was the man had told him as it finally registered.

"AC would do better," Nate said with a shrug. "Yeah, Lionel. A cat. I presumed he was an 'Earth' cat, but then I wasn't aware there were non-'Earth' cats. He's also probably not called Lionel. Or she. We didn't have that long a talk. It wants an element from around here. I'm sure it will turn up. So why are you here Doc?"

The Doctor cast a 'are you an idiot' look over at AC at his question then turned back around to keep walking. "I've told you once, there was a distress call sent out and my TARDIS locked onto it. Now I'm looking for who activated the call." He stated in a simple voice, keeping the explanation down to a minimal for the man to understand. This would be a long day if the man kept up with this act. "What element is this... Lionel looking for?" He finally added after a moment of silence, glancing over at AC again curiously, his usual grin flashing across his face as he spoke.

"You do realise I'm not actually listening to most of what you're saying." Nate grinned with a slight shrug at the Doctor's icy glare. "Lubzidius Nitrocide." Nate said after a pause to remember the cat's exact words. "No idea what it is though"

The Doctor blinked at AC for a moment then crouched down and gathered a handful of the silver sand in one hand. Straightening up, he held out the handful to the man and let him watch it fall back to the ground, leaving the underside of his hand a faint silver color. "Oxidization is when a certain element or gas uses oxygen to change the structure of something into a similar form." He explained with a curious tone, studying the silver sand under their shoes before lifting a boot up to look on the bottom of it. "Oxygen is on the skin, so when the sand touches it, causes the color to change."

Turning back around, he started heading into the stand of trees before them, his hands shifting back into his pockets while he walked along. "Take a handful of that back to him. I don't have time to bother with your errand."

"and how am I supposed to get home exactly?" Nate called out after the Doctor. It was clear that the Doctor didn't take to nonsense well, but this was a valid point. The cat had been particularly vague on that part. It was unfortunate but it seemed like the Doctor was stuck with AC and his nonsense. "Besides I can probably help with finding that distress beacon toy of yours..."

"I've found the distress beacon, I'm looking for the one who started it. Doesn't anyone listen?" He called over his shoulder just before disappearing into the shadow of the trees and heading deeper into the planet with his hands tucked into his jacket pockets, idly running his fingers over the silver part of his palm on the one hand, it felt odd, smoother, but he couldn't feel much in sensation when he brushed his thumb against it.

Stopping a few trees in, he turned and looked back at the figure with a slight frown tugging at his mouth. "Well come on then, keep up if you want a ride back. I won't be slowed down by an ape." The Doctor called back to AC before turning back around and continuing on his way.

"And I refuse to sped up by Dumbo," Nate replied with sarcasm filling his voice as he gestured vaguely towards the Doctor's ears. In truth Nate was intrigued by this new world, he'd never considered that one day he might get to see another planet or another galaxy, from this close up. "So we're looking for the people who activated a distress beacon. Distressers." he muttered to himself, "Howsabouts... them?" he inquired louder, pointing towards faint silhouettes in the distance.
