Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Face of Boe/Novice Hame
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 204. Prompt from: dontgiveahoot: Jack = Face of Boe - yes or no? Unbeta'd. LATE! Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: He may be billions of years old, but he's not dead.
The Face of Boe doesn’t sleep much, but he still manages to dream.
He has so many memories; lives he led and left behind. The names and faces are mostly lost to him, just glimmers of features, or syllables in strange languages.
Novice Hame is quite indulgent, both of his singing and his occasional risqué story. He can still imagine a long, virile man in a long coat reaching out to stroke her fur. When she picks up those thoughts, she shoots a telepathic message of extreme disapproval, but he knows she’s secretly flattered.
He can tell by the purring.
