Okay, so I’m a big fan of the BBC show Doctor Who and, even though I’ve never posted anything quite like this before, I wrote this for Doctor Who. It’s not really a fan fic, but Idk what exactly it is, so I’m just gonna let it be.
Voice: Let’s begin with where it all began.
Him: Well, what would “it” be?
Voice: That’s for you to decide, you’re the reason I’m here, after all.
Him: How can you expect me to know? So much has happened & so many things have changed. I barely even know my own name anymore.
Voice: But you still know it, you could never truly forget it. It’s been too important.
Him: Why? It doesn’t really mean anything, & I’d still be the same person without it.
Voice: That’s because you’ve tried to make yourself define the name in the past. Maybe you just need a new name to define you, stop trying to be something you’re not.
Him: But I don’t even know how to define my “self.” How could I ever use my self to define something else, especially a name?
Voice: That’s not necessarily what you’re doing. Don’t think of it as a name, make it a title. Let’s try again, start with this: What do you like to do?
Him: Well, I like to travel, and help people, when I can & when they need it.
Voice: And whom do you fight against?
Him: Oh, loads of folks, anyone who tries to conquer the innocent or injure the unarmed. I love giving bullies a good pounding.
Voice: And what do you see in them to fight? What fuels your fire against them?
Him: A reflection of who I have been, who I never wanted to be and refuse to ever become again.
Voice: What are the specific traits? Name them so you can know & remember.
Him: The cruel and the cowards. I have been both. I have been both so often that I very nearly gave up on becoming anything else.
Voice: But you didn’t.
Him: No. I never gave up hope, I never gave in to those thoughts. I wanted to help. I wanted to heal, to become wise and share that wisdom. Ultimately, I suppose, I wanted to be an intergalactic doctor.
Voice: There’s something.
Him: Yes. There it is. I will never be cruel or cowardly. I will never give up, never give in. I will be the Doctor. That is who I am and who I always want to be.
