Doctor Who Drabble: Forbidden Knowledge

Title: Forbidden Knowledge
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: River Song, Eleventh Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 229: Encrypt / Decrypt at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: River will go to any lengths to keep the Doctor from learning things he shouldn’t know yet.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

River seldom leaves her diary unattended, citing ‘spoilers’ as the reason she won’t let him read it. She doesn’t want him knowing details of events she’s already lived through that he has yet to experience. On one hand he knows it’s a sensible precaution, but on the other… Well, curiosity is one of his major personality traits, so from the moment he first set eyes on that bulging book he’s been longing to get his hands on it.

When he finally does it’s almost insulting; River’s written the whole thing in code! Does she really think he can’t decrypt it?

The End


Great drabble
Thank you!

She must have.

"Forbidden knowledge" sounds sexy. It's the word forbidden that does the trick.:)
I'm sure that's exactly what the Doctor thinks too ;) I was going to call this one 'Spoilers' then realised I'd already used that title so I had to think of something else.

I can definitely see River writing in a code of her own devising.

Thank you!

The Doctor thinks educated is very sexy!

He almost "fired" Amy for Rita in "The God Complex". How dare he say that to Rivers mother!:)
Did he know at that point that Amy was River's mother? I can't remember...

He's attracted to intelligent people. I like that.

*tries to think but double checks on Google*

Yes. It was disheartening that Rory and Amy acted like they didn't just loose their baby. But I blame it on the fact that some episodes were filler.

He lurves clever people, aliens or any kind of species really. It's just a coincidence he takes female human beings most of time as his companions.:)
And he gets cross with Jack for flirting with anything he finds attractive. The Doctor is just as bad in his own way!

Yep, total coincidence (and the writers).

There should have been more of an emotional impact on them both. There was some of the time, but...

Of course he doesn't see it that way. He is the Doctor.:)

Consistency does help the storyline flow better. I filled in the blanks with a fic where Rory tries to read River a bedtime story for the lost time.
Of course ;)

Awww, that sounds sweet! It must be hard to find your baby is all grown up and you missed her entire childhood.

River Song is a grown woman in my fic. I'm sure it would have messed up any loving parent. Being reunited should have had more of an impact on both Rory and Amy. I guess Moffat could only put so much angst in a family show.

I wished Brian (Rory's dad), had met River. She is his only grandchild afterall.
Yes, I wish River and Brian had met too.

That's what makes it cute though, Rory trying to be dad to his adult daughter.

I guess it's up to fan fiction. River could have visited him after losing Rory and Amy.:(

He would have. We only saw Amy distraught and angry a few times.
True, in fact I think I vaguely remember reading a fic where she did... Not sure though, it might have just been Eleven visiting Brian.

Maybe the TARDIS was helping Rory and Amy to deal with their loss.

That would have been difficult, since Brian said to bring them back safe.:(

Rory and Amy had each other in the end.
