Last of Her Kind @rainbowhairedgirl
Chapter 16

Authoress Note: Hello and welcome to Chapter 16. This was probably the hardest chapter that I have ever had to write. But I hope that you all enjoy it. I hope that this chapter isn't going to make people cry or gasp at what happens in it. I know some of you liked the Rose bashing. I personally never liked Rose. Not really. I always had a problem with her and there will be some more Rose bashing later in this chapter most likely. I am wondering if the relationship between Gwendalyn and the Doctor, is it going too fast? I am hoping that it isn't because well I don't like doing fast relationships they never turn out right. I am hoping that this is turning out okay. This story is going to be turning out more and more interesting as time goes on in this. Without further ado Chapter 16 of The Last of Her Kind. Allons-y!

Chapter 16

Terrible Things Can Happen

"I should have done that ages ago." The Doctor said as he worked on the door.

"You think that it was wise to scare her?"

"It needed to be done Lyn."

"My dad was out there." The groom said looking at the two of them.

Gwendalyn looked at him sadly. "Doctor."

"You can mourn him later. Right now we've got to concentrate on keeping ourselves alive."

Gwendalyn looked at the Doctor. "Do you need me to do anything else?" She questioned him. She had used enough of her magic during the day. But she would be willing to do more if she needed to because she needed to protect those who were being affected by Rose's mistake. She felt worthless if she wouldn't be able to do something. She was so used to doing something. Anything to help out where she could.

"My dad had…" The man said.

"There's nothing I can do for him."

"Doctor." Gwendalyn said, shaking her head.

"No, but he had this phone thing. I can't get it to work. I keep getting this voice." He said handing it to the Doctor.

The Doctor took it from the groom.

"Watson, come here. I need you. Watson, come here. I need you." A male voice said crackly.

Gwendalyn and the Doctor shared a look. They knew that voice fairly well.

"That's the very first phone call. Alexander Graham Bell. I don't think the telephone's going to be much use."

"But someone must have called the police."

Gwendalyn shook her head. "I don't think so."

"Police can't help you now. No one can. Nothing in this universe can harm those things. Time's been damaged and they've come to sterilise the wound. By consuming everything inside." The Doctor explained.

"Is this because? Is this my fault?" Rose asked the Doctor.

Gwendalyn turned and looked at Rose. "Yes, this is very much your fault. Because you couldn't leave something well enough alone."

"I didn't see you telling me not to do it." Rose snapped.

Gwendalyn narrowed her blue eyes. She brought her hand up and smacked Rose just like she had hit people before for not listening to warnings.

Rose held onto her cheek. "What the hell was that for?"

"I had warned you. You just didn't care to listen. You wanted your father to live and this was the outcome."

Rose huffed and walked away from them.

Gwendalyn pinched the bridge of her nose. She then looked at the Doctor sadly. "Is there anything else I could do?"

"No. You've done enough. You worked very hard already by blasting those creatures. You need to save your energy."

"I want to help though."

The Doctor smiled at her. Now that was his Artemis. The woman that he had fallen in love with all that time ago. He patted her arm. "Just rest."

"Okay." She said softly. She couldn't argue with him. Not in the least bit. She had used quite a bit of her magic blasting those things and they didn't like it. She sat down in one of the pews trying to rest.

The Doctor went back to what he was doing before. He pulled a curtain back and pulled his sonic screwdriver out.

"Excuse me, Mister…" The groom said coming up to him with his soon to be bride with him.

"Doctor." The Doctor said as he began to use his sonic on the door.

"You seem to know what's going on." The groom said looking at him.

"I give that impression, yeah."

"I just wanted to ask…"

"Can you save us?" The bride asked looking at him.

"Who are you two, then?" The Doctor asked, looking at the two of them.

"Stuart Hoskins."

"Sarah Clark."

"And one extra. Boy or girl?" The Doctor asked.

Sarah put her hand on her belly. "I don't know. I don't want to know, really."

"How did all this get started?" The Doctor asked curiously.

"Outside the Beatbox Club, two in the morning." Stuart said with a small fond smile.

"Street corner. I'd lost my purse, didn't have money for a taxi." Sarah said with a light chuckle.

"I took her home."

"Then what? Asked her for a date?"

"Wrote his number on the back of my hand." Sarah said looking at the Doctor.

"Never got rid of her since. My dad said." Stuart said, shaking his head.

"I don't know what this is all about, and I know we're not important." Sarah said softly.

"Who said you're not important? I've travelled to all sorts of places, done things you couldn't even imagine, but you two. Street corner, two in the morning, getting a taxi home. I've never had a life like that. Yes. I'll try and save you."

Gwendalyn gasped from where she was sitting.

The Doctor looked over sharply at his Artemis. "Gwendalyn!"

Gwendalyn looked at him. Her blue eyes were wide with fear. She knew that something was wrong.

"Gwendalyn is it the redhead?" He asked.

Gwendalyn nodded her head and gasped again. She grasped at her chest. "I'm sorry." She said softly as she bursted in purple light blinding them.

"Gwendalyn!" The Doctor yelled. No he couldn't have lost her. No, he couldn't have. He just found her. And it was all because of Rose. Rose had caused this and now Gwendalyn was gone and there was possibly no way that he could get her back.

Rose had run out and saw that Gwendalyn was not there. She felt her heart sink a little bit. This was all her fault. How was she going to make this up to the Doctor.


The Doctor was with baby Rose. He was actually surprised that Jackie was allowing him to watch her. "Now, Rose you're not going to bring about the end of the world, are you? Are you? You're not going to be leading Gwendalyn to her death?"

Rose walked up to him. She rubbed her arms. This was all her fault that this was happening.

"Jackie gave her to me to look after. How times change." The Doctor said softly.

"I'd better be careful. I think I just imprinted myself on Mickey like a mother chicken." She said softly. She was trying to lighten the mood, but she wasn't sure if it was going to work because the Doctor still looked very sad. He looked like he was going to cry.

"No. Don't touch the baby." He told her. "You're both the same person. That's a paradox, and we don't want a paradox happening, not with these things outside. Anything new, any disturbance in time makes them stronger. The paradox might let them in."

"Can't do anything right, can I?"

"Since you ask, no. Gwendalyn would still be alive if it wasn't for this little mistake. So, don't touch the baby."

"I'm not stupid."

The Doctor shook his head. "You could have fooled me." He let out a sigh. "Alright, I'm sorry. I wasn't really going to leave you on your own and neither was Gwendalyn. But now she's not here and…"

"I know."

"But between you and me, I haven't got a plan. No idea. No way out."

"You'll think of something." Rose said looking at him.

The Doctor shook his head. "Gwendalyn would have thought of something. The entire Earth's been sterilised. This, and other places like it, are all that's left of the human race. We might hold out for a while, but nothing can stop those creatures. They'll get through in the end. The walls aren't that old. And there's nothing I can do to stop them. There used to be laws stopping this kind of thing from happening. My people would have stopped this. But they're all gone. And now I'm going the same way."

"If I'd realised."

"Just tell me you're sorry."

"I am. I'm sorry."

The Doctor hugged her.

Rose gasped. and pulled away from him. "Have you got something hot?" Rose reached into his pocket and pulled out something which was none other than the key. Rose ended up dropping it.

"It's the Tardis key!" He quickly removed his jacket and picked it up safely into his hand. "It's telling me that it's still connected to the Tardis."He moved and stood in front of them. "The inside of my ship was thrown out of the wound but we can use this to bring it back. And once I've got my ship back, then I can mend everything. Now, I just need a bit of power. Has anybody got a battery?"

Stuart picks up the mobile that he had. "This one big enough?"

"Fantastic." The Doctor said going down to him.

"Good old dad. There you go." Stuart said, handing it to him.

"Just need to do a bit of charging up and then we can bring everyone back."He said as he used his sonic screwdriver. The Doctor could bring her back. He missed her a lot. He couldn't wait to see her again. Granted he had lived not long without her after the war, but he thought she was dead and he never gave up looking for her. But he needed her with him now. None of this waiting for her. He put the key in the right place for the door. He smiled when he saw that the Tardis slowly began to materialise around her key. "Right, no one touches that key. Have you got that? Don't touch it. Anyone touches that key, it'll be, well, zap. Just leave it be and everything will be fine. We'll get out of here. All of us. Stuart, Sarah you're going to get married, just like I said."

Rose let out a soft sigh. "When time gets sorted out…"

"Everybody here forgets what happened. And don't worry, the thing that you changed will stay changed." The Doctor told Rose.

"You mean I'll still be alive, though I'm meant to be dead. That's why I haven't done anything with my life, why I didn't mean anything."

"It doesn't work like that." The Doctor said, shaking his head.

"Rubbish. I'm so useless I could even die properly. Now it's my fault all of this has happened." Pete said, shaking his head.

"This is my fault." Rose said softly. "Gwendalyn would still be here if I hadn't done what I did."

"No, love. I'm your dad. It's my job for it to be my fault."

"Her dad? How are you her dad? How old were you, twelve? Oh, that's disgusting." Jackie said holding onto her daughter.

"Jacks, listen. This is Rose."

"Rose? How sick is that? You give my daughter a second hand name? How many are there? Do you call them all Rose?"

"Oh, for God's sake, look. It's the same Rose!" Pete said, taking baby Rose from Jackie and handing her to Rose.

"Rose! No!" The Doctor shouted, snatching the baby from Rose, but it was too late. He handed the baby back to Jackie.

A creature appeared in the church.

The Doctor swallowed the lump that had formed in his throat. He knew what he was going to have to do. He would see Gwendalyn again. Sooner than what he thought. He was doing this to protect Rose and the rest of them. "Everyone, behind me!"

Everyone scrambled behind him.

"I'm the oldest thing here."

"Doctor!" Rose yelled.

The creature jumped on the Doctor.

Rose watched in horror. This was all her fault. She had lost them both. All because she couldn't listen to a simple warning that Gwendalyn had given to her. The Tardis was gone and so was the creature. Rose moved quickly to where the key laid. She picked it up. She gasped. "It's cold. They key's cold. Oh, my God, he's dead. She's dead. This is all my fault. The three of you. All of you. The whole world."

"This is it. There's nothing we can do. It's the end." A woman said.

Rose moved and sat on her own. She couldn't believe that she had done this. She had killed them. She really truly had killed the both of them. She hadn't meant to do that. She never had meant to kill Gwendalyn or the Doctor. She hadn't meant to send them to their deaths. Not like this.

Pete walked over to her. "The Doctor and Gwendalyn really cared about you. The Doctor didn't want you to go through it again, not if there was another way. Now there isn't." Pete shook his head.

Rose let out a soft sigh. She knew that was true. "What are you talking about?

"The car that should have killed me, love. It's here. The Doctor worked it out way back, but he, er, tried to protect me. Still, he's not in charge any more. I am." Pete knew what he needed to do.

"But you can't."

"Who am I, love?"

"My daddy." Rose said softly, hugging him.

Jackie came in.

Pete pulled away from Rose. "Jackie, look at her. She's ours."

Jackie looked and saw it. "Oh, of course." Jackie hugged Rose.

"I'm meant to be dead, Jackie. You're going to get rid of me at last."

"Don't say that."

"For once in your life, trust me. It's got to be done. You've got to survive, because you've got to bring up our daughter. I never read you those bedtime stories. I never took you on those picnics. I was never there for you."

"You would have been."

"But I can do this for you. I can be a proper dad to you now."

"But it's not fair."

"I've had all these extra hours. No one else in the world has ever had that. And on top of that, I got to see you. And you're beautiful. How lucky am I, eh? So, come on, do as your dad says. You going to be there for me, love? Thanks for saving me." Pete said before grabbing the vase that would lead him to his death. He ran out the door.

Rose went to the door and saw him getting hit by the car. She felt more tears coming to her eyes.

The Doctor was now next to her. "Go to him. Quick."

Rose ran towards her dying father.

The Doctor turned and saw his Gwendalyn standing there. "Mis." He said moving quickly towards her.

Gwendalyn smiled at the nickname. She moved towards him.

He quickly pulled her into his arms. His nose was buried into her hair taking in her scent. He missed her. More than ever. Now he had her back and he wasn't going to allow this to happen to her again. He would not put her at risk again.

"I'm fine Doctor."

"I won't ever put you through that again." He said softly. "Never ever again."

Gwendalyn shook her head. "You could never lose me." She told him softly.

The Doctor and Gwendalyn looked towards Rose and saw that she was with her father.

"We should give them alone time." She told him softly.

The Doctor nodded his head in agreement.

The two of them walked to the Tardis to spend time with one another and allowed Rose to be with her father.

The Doctor pulled her close to him as they sat together in the Tardis. "I won't allow that to happen to you again."

"You can't always protect me Theta." She said softly.

"I know."

Rose came into the Tardis wiping her eyes. She gasped when she saw the two of them together. She didn't like the fact that Gwendalyn was close to her Doctor. She looked at the dark haired woman. "I am sorry."

Gwendalyn looked at Rose with a quirked eyebrow. "For what?"

"I should've thought about what I do before going through with it."

"Maybe think about what you do from now on. We can't have that kind of thing happening again." She told the younger girl.

Rose nodded her head.

Gwendalyn looked at the two of them before standing up. "I don't know about you two but I am tired. We had a trying day."

"I agree." The Doctor said looking at Gwendalyn.

"Good night." Rose said softly leaving the two of them together.

Gwendalyn looked at the Doctor. "Care to walk me to mine?"

The Doctor nodded his head before switching the Tardis to auto pilot.

The two of them walked towards her room in silence.

Gwendalyn looked over at him and saw the look that was on his face. The concern was still written across his face. "Theta."

The Doctor looked at her. "Hm?"

"Would it make you feel better if you stayed with me."


Gwendalyn held out her hand to him.

The Doctor took a hold of her small hand and walked into her room with her. He was surprised that she would even allow him in her room again. He had lost count of how many times that he had stayed with her. He didn't want to burden her.

"You aren't a burden." She told him softly.

The Doctor looked at her. "I didn't say that."

"You were thinking that Theta." She said softly, shaking her head. "You have never been a burden. I know how things are when you get down." She looked at him into his blue eyes. "I was worried about you too."

The Doctor ran his hand through her hair. "I don't want to lose you again. Not like that."

"You won't." She told him with a small smile. "Come on. We should get some rest."

The Doctor nodded his head.

Gwendalyn slipped her jacket off and her shoes.

The Doctor took his leather coat off and slipped his shoes off as well.

Gwendalyn slipped into her bed and looked at him. She smiled as he crawled into bed next to her. She cuddled to him.

The Doctor brushed his hand through her hair.

"You're not going to lose me Theta. Not now. Not ever."

The Doctor smiled. He was relieved that she was saying that.

"And you aren't going to just drop me off on Earth. I always want to be with you."

The Doctor pressed a soft kiss onto her forehead. "I wouldn't dream of doing that to you."

"Good." She said gripping onto his jumper.

The Doctor laughed lightly. He wouldn't separate himself from her. Not ever. He couldn't bear to be away from his Artemis.


This is the end of chapter 16. I know that I shouldn't have had Gwendalyn hit Rose, but it seemed justified and that is who Gwendalyn really is. I hope that Rose likers won't hate this chapter. I really tried hard on this chapter. So please let me know what you think. What do you think of the little moment between Gwendalyn and the Doctor? We will get to meet Jack very soon now. I am just curious of what you my readers would think how Gwendalyn would react when she meets Jack Harkness? We are getting closer to the end of this story. And there will be something surprising in the last chapter of this story before I go into the next story. Until next time. Much Love.
