A/N: Double drabble.
Travelling with the Doctor was a thrill ride Tosh was certain she’d never tire of. There was so much to learn, so much to see and experience, and she’d never met anyone who understood her better, or was more able to satisfy her thirst for knowledge.
Almost better than any of that was the way the Time Lord looked at her, with respect and admiration. He said she was amazing, brilliant, extraordinary, and she fairly glowed from the extravagant praise he heaped on her.
He’d taken to the role of mentor like a duck to water, the professor to her student. As brilliant as he considered Tosh to be, she knew he was light years ahead and even if she lived to be a hundred she’d still never learn more than a fraction of what he could teach her, but that didn’t matter; it was still so much more than she could have ever learned back home.
Out here exploring the universe was where she belonged; the Doctor agreed, said she was wasted back on earth where nobody appreciated her the way she deserved.
“You’re going to do great things, Toshiko!”
She didn’t doubt her new friend for a second.
