"What did you do?" Vale snapped, looking up at the Doctor across the controls he was frantically working at, dreading the answer. This was already crashing; they couldn’t afford more mistakes.
She grumbled at his tone without looking up. “Look no need to get snippy with me, but I think I hit the red button instead of the green. Hate to be negative and all, but the barriers are coming down.”
Well she had gotten this far, she may as well ask. The Doctor made the decision a long time ago, there was no other choice. “Can you bring someone back to life?”
Easily. But you have to understand the cost. Your life or someone else’s. For creatures such as yourselves, we give some wiggle room. Having too many powerful beings down below is not always a good idea, but you are not the first time lord to make a deal. Your life, your soul, or someone else’s. Your choice. But there is no way to rescue them, no way to break it, or the one we brought back dies.
The Doctor was worried, uneasy about the whole thing. Still she wanted to bring back Donna, she didn’t deserve the way she had. If this person could bring her back, sacrificing one life wouldn’t be the end of the world. “Would this person be random, or?”
"… Is something in this universe calling alternate Doctors here? I was once known as Theta." He responded as he tugged his hood back some "The Doctor causing quite the mess here looks a great deal like this current form. Perhaps he reverse engineered it, or messed with the inner workings so that it could do the reverse. I don’t know, and I haven’t gotten close to where he’s doing the conversions - the citadel is locked down tightly and I shudder to think what horrors he would subject us to, should he find is."
A small part of her smiled, she remembered that face. It’s how she knew what her male counterpart would look like, her metacrisis twin had it. “Nice to meet you Theta, meeting myself, this is just not normal. I don’t know if hes calling them here, but I was-” Should she say it, risk angering this Doctor. “I was traveling between universes anyway, I guess I made a wrong turn.” Fiddling with her hands, nervousness passed through her. “You are my counterpart from another universes, same incarnation. Male Metacrisis twin proved that. Anyway I don’t how he’s doing this but you are right, we can’t risk getting caught by him. We’re his counterparts, not something he’d risk the rebellions getting too.” In any kind of take overs, there is always bound to be rebels somewhere.
"I… I am from an alternate universe. The Doctor. And you?" he asked curiously "He is probably using the chameleon arch to change them. And no, it isn’t right, but what exactly do you propose to do in order to stop him? … That is terribly unfortunate…" To lose one’s TARDIS… to be trapped in one place and time made his skin crawl.
Her voice squeaked for a moment before taking in a deep breath. Her hearts were jumping around like crazy. “You’re the Doctor too? Oh wow.” She wondered if she should tell him. “Which one are you? Can’t exactly see your face love. My name is Thalia, but more known as The Doctor in my own universe.” Just happens to be female, that’s all. “Chameleon arch sounds about right, but I thought it couldn’t turn humans, just the other way around?”

"…you’re a time lord as well. One of the Old Ones… like me. Apparently the Doctor of this Universe has taken over earth, done something horrible to Gallifrey, and has begun domination of the universe. From what I can tell he’s… he’s begun converting humans into something close to Time Lords. If you can, I would recommend leaving before he catches you." The other responded quietly.
Old ones? "what do you mean like you? Who are you?" Though she could admit that she felt a certain pull, a connection with this stranger. Still she choose not to think about that at the moment. The other things that he said had put her on alarm, converting humans. "But he can’t do that? How is he doing th- this isn’t right?" Turning back to him, she groaned. "If I could do that, I’d be gone but my Tardis..she blew up. Just gone."
The brunet heard a cry for help, and he quickly rushed towards the young woman, tugging on the hood he was wearing to make sure that it was firmly attached. he had learned much in the past few days and none of it was good. “You should keep your voice down, lest you attract the attention of darker people. What do you need help with?” he asked softly once he was much closer to her.
The hooded figure came to her, but he didn’t show his face. Still she wasn’t alarmed by it, just thought maybe that kind of rude. Eyes wide, she nodded, where the hell did she land? “I’d like to know what is going on around here? You could stay I’m not from around these parts.”
