FINDING GALLIFREY

A/N: To read Little Alan's story, look for the stories Cheri and I wrote called "Our Horrible Holiday in Deserted Disney World" and, with the Krystans, "Parenthood" For Yoshi's story, look for my story "With Friends Like Him".

Chapter Two

Adam looked over the list of songs he wanted to sing for Gallifrey's Got Talent as he arched the fedora up with his finger and smiled. He wasn't sure if he was as good as Rose, but he was going to give it his best shot and placed his feet on top of the desk.

"Daddy," his six year old son, Alan, said as he came into the room and Adam smiled. He still couldn't get over the fact that he and Alan had found him on an Earth where humans lived underground in what was once Disney World and that his birth mother had abused him since birth for being born deaf.

A year ago, Alan had escorted Adam and the Doctor to a meeting of the Intergalactic Senate and had found out that the Ornetz, the enemy of the Krystans, had implanted a bomb in the body of one of the Krystan generals. Lady Onyxia, like many Krystans, was a great healer and, as thanks for saving her life and those of her people due to Alan alerting them to the bomb, healed Alan of his deafness.

"Yes, Son of Mine," Adam asked as Alan got onto his lap and leaned against him.

"I broke Groot," he said as he held up his Guardians of the Galaxy action figure and Adam noticed the arm was missing. Alan had the missing arm in his right hand and Adam smiled.

"No, you didn't," he said as he took the missing arm then the action figure and gently wiggled the arm back into place. "Remember, we had to buy the other six figures to get him? Sometimes the piece just doesn't fit in the hole."

"Thanks, Daddy," Alan said with a smile.

"Now, how did his arm fall off? Did you toss him out the window?"

Adam's sons tend to play a little rough with their toys and Alan was no exception.

"No," Alan said elongating the "o".

"Ah, your nose is growing, Pinocchio," he said and gently tweaked his son's nose.

"He fell off the banister," Alan said with a pout.

"Why?"

"He was running away from a giant woodpecker," Alan said and Adam's eyes widened. He suddenly burst out laughed and hugged his son. After a few seconds, he stopped laughing and shook his head.

"Ok, well, next time have him shoot it with his thorns," he said with a big smile and Alan giggled. Suddenly Adam felt a cold rush of air move through his mind as he blinked his eyes a few seconds and sighed.

Adam had started having visions right before his daughter, River, was born and he hated it when he got one. His mind went blank and he would pass out. It had been a long time since he had a vision and he felt his eyes rolling into his head. Alan was frightened as he got off his daddy's lap then Adam slid off the chair and onto the floor.

"Daddy?" he asked as he knelt next to Adam then closed his eyes and calmed his mind. He thought of his other daddy, Alan, and hoped he wasn't off planet.

Alan swung Rose's hand as she smiled at him and the Doctor and Rain walked a few feet in front of them. Hope skated circles around her parents as she laughed and Alan rolled his eyes.

"That kid's going to cause him to fall then he'll regenerate into Doctor No Eyebrows!" Alan said as the Doctor stopped and glared back at him.

"I had eyebrows," the Doctor said in reference to the time he, Duer and Amato being forced into exile and having to regenerate into their eleventh lives. The exile was revoked and the Doctor and Duer were able to reverse the regeneration back into their tenth lives, but Amato stayed as his eleventh life. "They were just very light."

"If you say so," Alan said then leaned closer to Rose. "I think he just plucked them then drew them back in."

"I did not!" the Doctor shouted and Rain giggled. "I didn't!"

"I know you didn't, Thete," Rain said.

"Hey, isn't that Uncle Duer?" Hope said as she pointed and coming down the pavement was Duer with his daughters, Faith and Yoshi. Both of them had just turned nine years old like Hope and Duer was swinging their hands back and forth.

A year ago, Duer had met Yoshi when she had been sent by Kin, the Great Mother of the kitsunes, to get the Doctor's help and Yoshi had decided to stay with Duer. Kin allowed her to and made her human then Duer used one of the crystals to make Yoshi into a Time Child. She was still surprised by how Duer and the others including her in things, but loved being a part of their mixed up family.

"Hello," Duer said as they stopped and Hope skated around him. He yelped when she suddenly smacked his bottom and Faith laughed while Yoshi covered her mouth to hide her smile.

"Tag, you're it," Hope said then skated toward Alan and hid behind him.

"What, do you think I'm a hiding place? Move on," he said as he stepped back then looked at Duer. "She's all yours."

"Thank you," Duer said as he headed for Hope, but she skated away and he sighed, folding his arms over his chest. "Blast, she got away."

"Too slow, Blubber Butt," she said then stopped as Yoshi glared at her and arched an eyebrow.

"That was very disrespectful. Do you have no honor, Hope-san? Tell my father you are sorry," she said and Hope looked at Duer, lowering her head.

"Sorry, Uncle Duer," Hope sighed and the Doctor looked at Duer then to Yoshi then back to him.

"How did she do that?" the Doctor asked.

"My little fox can stare down anyone," Duer said as he walked to Yoshi and patted the top of her head.

"Where are you going?" Rain asked when they suddenly felt Adam's mind blink out and looked at each other.

"Daddy," Little Alan thought as Alan closed his eyes and gently pulled his mind forward.

"What's wrong, Kiddo?" Alan thought, sending calming thoughts.

"Daddy Adam fell on the floor and I can't wake him up."

"Where is your mother?" the Doctor thought.

"She and Nana Delmari are off planet visiting River."

"Ok, we're coming," Duer thought and ran down the pavement.

The barren landscape spread around him as Adam opened his eyes and looked around. Dead grass and trees spread across the cracked ground and the cracks spread out in all directions. The ice cold wind blew through his hair as he tried to figure out was going on and shivered. He started walking while the dry ground crunched under his feet and he wrapped his arms around his stomach. Looking up, he saw the red sky filled with black clouds and white lightning flared behind the clouds.

"Great," Adam sighed as he brushed the hair out of his eyes and looked around. He kept walking when he heard a familiar grinding and wheezing noise and titled his head to one side. He suddenly found himself in a large graveyard and what looked like the TARDIS rose toward the sky. He started walking when he felt like he was being watched then turned around, seeing River Song behind him.

"Hello, Sweetie," she said and he frowned.

"River, where are we?" he asked and she smiled.

"This is Trenzalor," she said and his hearts thumped hard in his chest. He had heard stories about Trenzalor and he pressed his lips together.

"Why am I here?"

"Spoilers," River said then faded away and he rolled his eyes.

"I really hate that," Adam said as he started walking then jumped when he saw the head of a Cyberman on top of a tombstone.

"Greetings," the head of the Cyberman said in a mechanical voice.

"Uh, hello, who are you?" Adam asked with a puzzled look on his face.

"My name is Handles," Handles said and Adam smiled.

"Pleased to meet you," Adam said then looked around. "Mind telling me what's going on?"

"Negative," Handles said then vanished.

"I hate it when visions make no sense," Adam sighed then walked by the gravestones and started whistling. He stopped when he saw a TARDIS then shrugged and walked closer. He knocked on the door when the door opened and Clara looked at him. "Hello, who are you?"

"I'm Clara. Who are you?" Clara asked.

"Adam David Storm, at your service," he said with a little bow and Clara laughed. He smiled then tried to see around her and sighed. "Is the Doctor around?"

"Hold on," Clara said then went back in the TARDIS and closed the door. Adam rocked gently back and forth on the balls of his feet when the door open and the Doctor walked out.

"You must be Adam," the Doctor said.

"And you look like the father of that family the Doctor rescued in Pompeii," Adam thought.

"Yes, I am," Adam said. "Mind telling me what's going on."

"I think you are trying to connect with me," the Doctor said, looking around. "I guess we're not close enough for you to make a connection."

"No, I'm having a vision," Adam said and the Doctor's eyes widened.

"You're psychic?"

"Yes," he said with a nod of his head.

"Interesting, I don't know many Time Lords who can do that."

"I'm, well, not exactly one of a kind, but I'm the only one who can in my family."

"Wait, you mean you're a Time Lord?"

"Yeah," Adam said, wondering why he didn't know that.

"And you live on Gallifrey?" he asked with an excited tone to his voice.

"Yeah," he said, nodding his head.

"See you soon," the Doctor said then closed the door and the TARDIS vanished.

"Ok, this is really getting weird," Adam said then felt dizzy and blackness entered his mind.

"Easy," Martha said as Adam tried to move then opened his eyes and she smiled at him. "Hello."

"Hi," Adam said then felt someone stroking his head and looked up, seeing Little Alan stroking his hair. "Sorry I scared you, Bump."

"What happened?" Little Alan asked as Martha helped Adam sit up and Little Alan sitting near the top of his head. Adam saw Rain, Duer, the Doctor, Alan, Rose, Faith, Hope and Yoshi standing around him and Adam sighed, half closing his eyes.

"You ok, Tiri'me'su?" Duer asked as he knelt down on his haunches, looking at his little brother. Tiri'me'su meant "Soul of Us" in Gallifreyan and was Adam's nickname.

"IuhI had a vision," Adam said and they looked at each other.

"What did you see?" Alan asked as he knelt down on his haunches and Adam sighed, wiping his face with his hands.

"We're going to have company."

"Who's coming?" Rain asked.

"The Doctor," Adam said and they looked at the Doctor, who frowned and folded his arms over his chest.
