Adventures through time and space with The Doctor and his Companions. Most likely a non-adult game, but I could be convinced to make it adult if my partner insists. The main characters would be The Doctor, a female companion and a male companion that are siblings. I would play the siblings, and my partner would play The Doctor. (Due to the canon content involved, this pairing is NOT OPEN for discussion.)
(On an unrelated side note, my inspiration for the brother and sisters relationship in this story is the song "Going In Blind" by P.O.D.)The Plot:
(I've thought this one through A LOT and it shows ^^; )
Our story begins with a girl who is in the moderately late stages of a lethal illness, but it doesn't show much at first since she is taking medicine to stall its effects. She meets the Doctor, he takes a liking to her and asks her to be his companion. One of the first things she says to him is, “Can you take me somewhere I've never been before?”
Her brother, by accident or by force, insists on coming along, if only with the intent to bring his sister back home as soon as possible.
Many wacky adventures ensue as is common when following The Doctor, with the sister being very light hearted and fun about every scenario, and the brother being grouchy and cynical. The brother is constantly reminding his sister to take her medicine and to slow down and to stay out of harms way, but the sister pays him little mind. (She does take her medicine, however).
Their relationship is affectionate and kind, but she is a little too adventurous for his tastes and he is too serious for hers. There are a few moments here and there where she gets him to let loose, but for the most part he is consistently chiding her for being ‘careless’ with her health and watching out for her well-being. Throughout their time with the Doctor, they are constantly saving each others lives for one reason or another, showing that the brother needs his sister as much as the she needs him.
(A funny little idea I had that would be a running gag is the Doctor Response of “Fixed point in time” to all of The Sisters specific statements. She’d be all “Why didn’t you stop Hitler?” and he’d go “Fixed point in time”. And she’d say “Well, what about saving Abraham Lincoln?” and he’d say “Fixed point in time” and she’d go “You could have done something about World War 2!” and he’d go “Fixed point in time!” And at last she’d be like “Tch. That fixed point in time sounds pretty damn convenient for you” As if she didn’t believe him. And every now and then, she’d toss another event his way, and he would reply with the same phrase. The brother would always hassle her and tell her to stop pestering The Doctor with questions that would always have the same answer. Finally, it gets to the point where both The Brother and The Doctor are saying “fixed point in time” to the sister at the same time, although the brother always sounds more annoyed about it.)
It is not revealed until much later in the storyline that the sister is seriously ill, however. (The take your medicine reminders are very brief and only ever lightly implied an illness. It allows one to assume maybe she just has an allergy of some sort, rather than any serious life-threatening problem)
It is only after the TARDIS lands a few years into the future, near a graveyard, that The Brother is seen looking at a Tomb Stone and ushering his sister away before she can see what it says. (It is largely implied that it is HER tomb stone he saw and he doesn’t want her or anyone else to see it)
It is then that she goes and says something along the lines of “Alright, let’s give the Elephant in the room its name. I’m dying. There. I said it. Can we move on now?” Her less than worried attitude upsets the brother and they get into an argument, most of which he is being angry and cynical and she is joking around, with responses like,
Girl: Oh, come on. Everybody dies. I mean look at The Doctor, he’s died what, ten times now?
Girl: Eleven times! That’s impressive, you know. Considering, most people don’t past once, maybe twice, but Eleven! He’s good at this really, he’s a pro at dying.
Brother: It’s not funny!
A bigger plot event causes them to put their argument aside and continue on saving the world as per usual Doctor Who shenanigans. During this event, the bottle of medicine she carries is lost and due to the area they’re in (or due to whatever plot shenanigans they’re up to) they cannot leave to get more. The TARDIS has to stay where it is.
By time that issue has solved, it’s been a few days without her medicine and she’s starting to look pale.
When at last she gets her medicine again, it seems like the days without it have really taken their toll on her. She seems weak, shaky, unstable but her personality doesn't falter. She seems as determined as ever to keep going and keep living, despite her bodys own protests.
Towards the end of the story, it is clear she is dying. Her medicine is doing little to help her and the brother is desperate and willing to do anything to save her.
The Sister, knowing that she’d dying, asks The Doctor, just like the day they met, “Can you take me somewhere I’ve never been before?” She wants him to take her somewhere new. Somewhere beautiful and vibrant and full of life.
At that point in the story, they head aboard an alien planet lush with beautiful plant life and an array of stunning colours and races. It is exactly what The Sister has asked for. At peace, she feels she can accept her death.
Only, another mystery takes hold. The group soon noticed that this planet seems to thrive with mysteriously advanced medical technology. Everyone is young and healthy, there are no old, feeble or sick people there. No one appears to be beyond the age of 50 or so.
It is later revealed that once the adults reach a certain point in age, (Age not so much in numeric value exactly, but in wear and tear on the body, events experienced, achievements made, etc etc) they transmit their remaining life force to a family member or friend, so that the remaining individual may live a longer, healthier, fuller life, who in turn does the same thing to their friend or family member in due time. This repeats a cycle of constant, healthy, long-lived individuals who are never beyond the appearance of late adulthood.
As one might expect, with The Sister dying, The Brother decides to take hold of the alien technology and transfer his lifeforce to his sister, despite her pleas for him not too. She begs The Doctor to reverse it, but he cannot. Once the life has been transferred, there is no going back.
The Brother dies, but just before he does, he smiles at his sister and makes a joke about having known all along, that this was a ‘Fixed Point in Time’.
Some time later, at the same graveyard from before, it is revealed that the grave from before was not one that belonged to The Sister, but instead, it belonged to The Brother.
With her illness gone and a whole new life ahead of her, she says her final, tearful goodbyes to her brother at his grave, and is last seen stepping aboard the TARDIS with the Doctor, asking him, once more, “Can you take me somewhere I've never been before? “
It is worth noting that this story can be edited and altered to suit any specific needs of my partner, please don't allow it's lengthy description to deter you from any inquiries you may have about it.
