The Deep Sky Atlas

TripwireAlarm. Fanfic author. Whovian. Space enthusiast.  INTJ. Ranter, raver, stargazer, keeper of turtles.  I post mainly Doctor/Rose fanfic, and reblog RTD-era Doctor Who, David Tennant, Broadchurch and engage in profuse arm-flailing about outer space and deep sky objects.

The Veil Nebula is a large supernova remnant, an expanding cloud born of the death explosion of a massive star. Light from the original supernova explosion likely reached Earth over 5,000 years ago. Blasted out in the cataclysmic event, the interstellar shock wave plows through space sweeping up and exciting interstellar material.

“You know what I think?” she goads, her mouth left open to frame the yet-unspoken ending.  Something about it isn’t quite the way she would normally speak to him, and he can only thank his own unanticipated resentment and his tongue for running off without him and putting just the sort of ideas in her head he’d been valiantly trying to avoid.  “I think you’re experiencing Captain-envy.”

She looks at him in the dark with her miraculously healed-over hands like he’s something new, like maybe someone might look at an ocean they’ve never seen.  When she approaches, it’s a little slow, appraising, smiling the way she would if she’d been told a secret.  It’s not an image he’s promoted: the Doctor as anything but something ineffable and alien, morally austere, something set apart from the everyday things she can easily catalog, and for good reason.
