The moment the TARDIS had ceased shaking him about like a die in a tumbler, he scrambled to his feet, immediately checking his ship's systems. "Everything all right there, old girl?" he asked absently, his hands flicking and turning different switches and dials, his eyes glancing at the screen. Made him glad he waited to test the updated fast-return switch he'd just installed until after he'd left Harriet in Flydale North to visit her mum. A private trip there without all the media coverage would do her some good, he felt.

Now if he could only figure out what the hell went wrong with his TARDIS... The fast return switch, by all rights, should have brought him back to Sulinara! The original trip there hadn't been as bumpy, nor had any of the other trips he'd made using the old switch. Not that he recalled anyway.

He shrugged and sighed at the read-outs he was glancing over. The TARDIS would only tell him he was on Earth and nothing else. "Come on, not even a little clue?" he complained and frowned as he slipped the pair of glasses off his face and stowed them safely away. "I hope you're not acting like this on purpose. I'll have you know it wasn't my fault the switch didn't work!" A pause. "Well...it might have been," he conceded, running a hand through his hair. "Just a bit..."

Deciding it'd be best if he left the TARDIS to run a diagnostics on that particular section of her systems in peace, he quickly made his way to the door, shrugging his long brown coat on. "Just going out for a stroll," he said, hoping to get a response from his ship. He only received a stony silence in return; even the humming in the console room had become more subdued. "Right," he added, clicking his teeth together. "Back in a jiff."

Something told him, however, as he stepped out into a leafy forest on what like a beautiful summer day, that he might be a little longer than a 'jiff'. "What?"

Especially if what he saw before him was indeed another TARDIS, an exact copy of the one he'd just left. "What?!"

The Doctor stroked his console fondly, not bothering to even look at the screen to see where she'd taken him. He'd entered a random sequence anyway, and trusted her to make it interesting. She never never failed him on that count, especially since Rose had rejected his offer. It was almost as if the old girl was making up for his lack of a companion, and he appreciated it more than he could express properly. He was planning some special upgrades as a reward, but he'd work on those later. For now, he had exploring to do.

He didn't notice anything particularly unusual about the forest as he stepped out of the TARDIS. The trees were leafy and green, the sun was shining brightly, the birds were singing - and then he noticed the TARDIS, and the bloke standing out in front of it who could only be a future self.

"Oi! What're you doing here, idiot? This is my timestream, go find your own," he grumbled, crossing his arms.

"Yes, I did!" the Doctor huffed, poking a bit at Ten's hair. "No surprise, really, all this hair weighing down on your brain. And it's not like you can prove you were here first-- hang on," he paused, glancing around.

"Nothing's happening. That's a bit wrong."

The Doctor rolled his eyes. "Shut up about the ears, would you? And obviously you're the one with the foggy memories, old man. Sealant? Honestly."

He glanced at his self's TARDIS curiously though, wondering why nobody else had followed his self out of it. He hoped he would have a companion eventually, but maybe not...

The Doctor glared at his self when he mentioned travelling with Rose. There was being a jerk, and then there was being cruel...he'd just crossed the line. Without a single reply, he turned and went straight back into the TARDIS. He frowned, however, when the controls seemed to be a bit stuck.

Much to his annoyance, the TARDIS opened the door all on her own. "Ignore her, you can't come in," the Doctor muttered stubbornly. "Not if you're going to make cracks like that about Rose." Really, his self ought to know better.

"Yep, definitely a foggy memory, if you can't even remember what you said five seconds ago. Never thought I'd regenerate into a goldfish. Even our Eighth wasn't as bad as you."

The Doctor shoved his hands in his pockets, and proceeded to mimic his self's accent. "Travelling with Rose? Met the Slitheen?"

The Doctor stared at his self like he'd grown a second head...he remembered Platform One, but Rose hadn't been there. "Rose? Fond? Of me? What sort of alternate dimension are you..." the Doctor trailed off, realising that was exactly where his self was from. It had to be.

"Ah."

He was quiet for a few long moments, before he finally decided to answer. He might not've if his self had been smug about it. "I've never travelled with Rose Tyler. She rejected my offer after that bit with the Autons. Decided she'd rather stay with her mum and her boyfriend." His tone was bitter, but he couldn't help it. He'd been alone for too long.

The Doctor gestured around his console room. "Does it look like I've found anyone else?"

Well, that wasn't entirely the case. But he didn't like talking about Adam, so it took him a moment.

"There was one bloke, but he didn't last long," he muttered darkly. "Stupid ape only lasted one trip out before I dumped him back home."

The question was instantly met with a snap of the Doctor's fingers. "Yep. Take it you had an Adam too?" That sparked his curiosity...maybe their universes weren't so different, even with Rose's absence.

"After the Autons? Platform One, the Gelth, the Slitheen, and...picking up Adam." He couldn't bring himself to mention what he'd done to the Dalek. "Just dumped him back home not too long ago."

He raised an eyebrow at the Doctor's question. "'Course I have. You've run into her again?"
