The Doctor ReturnsBethy Davis was trying to enjoy a little alone time at her father's house, fixing herself some tea and reading a book. Things had been pretty turbulent in her life lately and Andrew Davis, her father, was very concerned. All thanks to a friend of hers whom she only referred to as the Doctor.The Doctor Returns by ~CherryleaFoxtrot
She had told him very wild stories about the Doctor, who was a Time Lord from some planet called Gallifrey, and her travels with him over a period of three years that made Andrew question the state of her mental health, ranging from robot species called Daleks and Cybermen to time travel to travelling to very distant planets in this vessel called the TARDIS.
"What is a TARDIS?" he had asked her.
"The TARDIS is a time travelling machine," she explained. "It's -much- bigger on the inside, and stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. It's supposed to change shape and form, but the Chameleon Circuit broke and --"
"Whoa whoa, Chameleon Circuit?"
"It's the device that allows the TARDIS to change
I've been pretty busy recently. More busy than I would've liked. The past couple of weeks, I've been processing for the military, the US Army in particular. At first, I felt like this was something I really wanted to do. I felt prepared. I went to MEPS and had my physical done. Lemme tell you what they do at the Shreveport MEPS [in the order I did it in]:
You have to fill out a bunch of medical/law questions for about an hour
They take your blood pressure
They take your blood
You talk with a physician for yet more questions
They check your hearing and vision
You take a urine test and they watch you while you piss
The actual physical itself, which consists of:
Stripping down to your underwear and being measured and weighed, then checking for flat feet [seriously what?]
Doing a series of physical movements, some being really ridiculous and not to mention difficult
Stripping fully with a paper gown and being inspected further
And when I mean further, they check your eyes, ears, throat, breasts [if you have any], and your genitals/ass. Yes, they do look there
If all goes good, then you can pick one of the appointed times to swear in and you're done. If not, you have to come back for consults and they can disqualify you over the smallest thing. Turns out, I had a bilateral cerumen impaction [explains my shit hearing] and possible lumbar hyperlordosis [swayback in layman's terms]. I had a series of x-rays done and an ear wash done [wow I can hear]. I've done all I can now. However, my back problem can disqualify me. Which I'm upset and happy about at the same time. Upset cos it would prevent me from doing something I could do. Happy because after I got home from MEPS the first time, I got a little discouraged and felt like maybe I wasn't as prepared as I thought I was. I still think that way. Who knows...
IN OTHER NEWS:
I've posted up some new pieces, which I'm sure you guise have seen by now
Recently I've been getting into Amnesia
even though I'm too scared to play it myself and posted a fanart piece. I have also started writing a crossover piece of it with Doctor Who. The short story of it is that Daniel meets The Doctor [Ten] while at Brennenburg, and the Doctor helps him, despite him being in pursuit of the Master for some reason that I have yet to think of. At the end, it turns out that Alexander is the Master... DUN DUN DUNNNN. It's still very early in writing, but yeah. It's gonna be good. And once it's all over, Daniel may just be the Doctor's next companion...
THAT IS ALL FOR NAO!
