Surprise Beginnings - Father!Doctor X Baby!Reader"I have a daughter?" The Doctor asked, shocked. "But, there's no way. River, and I... We didn't even- I can't have-"
"You do." the nurse interrupted his rambling, holding you out to him.
You looked up at your father, confused. He looked odd. Not like the soft, friendly looking faces of the nurses. Although, he still seemed friendly and strangely familiar. You attempted to smile, an adorable and toothless first smile.
"Well, hello there." your dad smiled, taking you gently in his arms. "Now, what should I name you? Nothing with a B, I don't like b-names. How about Haimi? No. Jacinda? No. Jade? Pretty, but no. Jaen? No, that means ostrich. You don't want to be called ostrich, do you?"
You giggled and shook your head. The nurse seemed a bit confused when your dad nodded. "I thought not. Now, what do you want to be called?" he listened as you babbled a bit. "___? Well, I suppose it's a nice name. Just be glad you're not a boy or you'd probably be named after me. Then there would be two Doc
First Steps - Father!Doctor X Child!Reader"Come on. You can do it, Sweetie." your dad said, crouching a foot away as you struggled to stand on your own. You wished he would just continue to carry you, but he'd insisted that you learn to walk. Annoyed at struggling to do something that you thought was unnecessary, you simply sat down and pouted instead. "Come on, ___." your father urged. "If you can walk over here, I'll give you a cookie!"
"Cookie!" you said excitedly. That was worth the struggle of walking. You pushed yourself up again so you were standing, wobbling a bit. You carefully put one foot forward, then the other in front of that. You went to take another step and stumbled forward. You managed to stop yourself from falling forward, only to fall backward instead.
Everything was silent for a moment, including your dad, which was more of a surprise than you falling. But instead of crying, you giggled and pushed yourself back up. Your dad sighed in relief as you continued walking toward him. With each step, you got more
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
