Molly's fingers swiftly flow over each of the keys as she plays the final bit of "Starman" by David Bowie. It's New Year's Eve and both Cam and his adopted sister Molly were invited to their mutual college friend's New Year's Eve party. Even though Cam is twenty and Molly is sixteen, they're both attending Oxford University and, since she's a super genius, Molly's a grade ahead of him. David Bowie has been one of Molly's favorite musicians practically her entire life for all his songs about space. The Star Man in all of Molly's dreams has taught her about space and all things "Wibbly- Wobbly, Timey- Wimey". Even though the Star Man, whose name is actually the Doctor, was talking to her adopted mum Donna Noble, she sees all her dreams from Donna's point of view. All the doctors say the same thing, the Doctor is just a figment of her imagination caused by the tumor taking up a quarter of her brain. The only people who really believe Molly is Cam and that's mostly because he doesn't want to let down his dying sister.
Cam is across the room standing next to his long- time crush Gwen Cho watching his baby sister perform fearlessly in front of at least fifty people one of her favorite songs. Donna was an even better mum once Shaun left the family; she gave the equal amount of attention to both Cam and Molly despite all of the things that made Cam less important compared to Molly. Cam and Molly are best friends. Whenever Molly was in doubt, Cam was there for her. He's probably one of the best older brothers a little girl could dream of. Gwen grins to herself as she watches her best friend perform on stage. Cam anxiously awaits his opportunity to make a move on Gwen. Cam met Gwen his freshman year of college. Although Gwen is a grade older than him, she's a genius like Molly, but only skipped one grade. Technically, Cam is older than her. Cam met her going to one of the New Year's Eve parties. Molly introduced them and Cam fell in love with her, but Gwen had a boyfriend then. They broke up over the summer when he moved to Chicago. Now's his chance to surprise her with a New Year kiss. Cam fumbles his fingers into Gwen's. She turns to him and smiles.
"There's a starman waiting in the sky. He's told us not to blow it, 'cause he no it's all worthwhile. He told me: Let the children lose it. Let the children use it. Let the children boogie," Molly sings wrapping up the song. Gwen and Cam clap. Molly stands up and bows. "Thank you, everyone! I hope you have a happy end- of- 2009!" Molly calls to the audience waving her hand goodbye.
Gwen turns to Cam and sweetly smiles. "Cam, I'm sorry. I really like you, but it's only as a friend. I'm not interested in you in that way. Do you understand what I'm saying?" She softly asks.
Cam bites his lip and nods. "Yeah, Gwen... I understand. I'm sorry. I thought you would be interested now that you're not with Isaac," Cam sighs.
"It's okay. I'm really sorry if I led you in that direction if you thought I was interested. Isaac and I are just taking a break and we're probably going to get back together after I graduate this year. Happy New Year, Cam!" Gwen waves skipping off.
"Yeah... happy New Year, Gwen," Cam says so quietly she probably couldn't even hear him say it.
Cam watches as Gwen fades into the crowd. Molly shoves her way through everyone and thanking them for showering compliments on her. Someone announces that it's one minute to midnight. "Cam! Come on! We have to go out to look for the Doctor!" She commands taking his hand.
"Molly, do you think we can skip it this year?" Cam begs.
Molly's face falls. "Come on, Cam! We do this every year! This could be the year the Doctor actually comes!" Molly pleads. "Please... for me."
Cam sighs in defeat. "Fine," He smiles and Molly's entire face lights up.
Molly takes Cam's hand and runs out the front door of the coffee shop to the empty sidewalk. They look up at the stars and take each other's hand. They begin to count down in unison. "Ten... Nine... Eight... Seven... Six... Five... Four... Three... Two... One," An eruption of cheers burst behind them. Molly and Cam squeeze their eyes shut. "Doctor, please come find me. Please come find me, Doctor," They both whisper.
Both of them stand in silence in attempt to hear the blue box sing to them. The noise inside the coffee shop eventually dies down to a low roar. While Cam will usually stay out for half an hour at most and Donna stayed out for only ten minutes when Molly was younger, Molly will stay out for three hours if she has to. Something different occurs this time. After standing out for thirty- five minutes and Cam was about to give up hope, both of them hear the noise. It was the most beautiful noise Cam had ever heard and Molly had only heard in her dreams. Molly gasps and flings her eyes open. The two of them turn to each other. They didn't even have to say a word, because they both knew they heard the noise. Cam could see it in Molly's blue eyes that it was the blue box she had always spoken of. Molly's lips curled into the largest smile Cam has ever seen on her face.
"Cam! Cam! That's it! That's the noise the TARDIS makes! That's the blue box! The Doctor's here, Cam! It's the Doctor! I told you he exists! He's real! He's real!" Molly cheers jumping up and down.
"Where there's a TARDIS, the Doctor's not too far behind! Follow me! I heard the noise come from this direction," Cam states.
Molly takes his hand and they charge down the street in attempt to find the Doctor. The turn down corners, sneak through alley ways, and break through bushels of drunks in hopes of finding the Doctor or at least his blue box. They suddenly reach an icy patch and Molly slips and falls onto a man going the opposite direction as them. The man helps Molly up. He's quite funny looking in her eyes. He has a long face, pale skin, gorgeous almond shaped grey- green eyes, and dark flippy David Bowie like hair, not to forget to mention the prominent chin also. His attire is certainly different from the typical person. The most notable aspect he's wearing is a shiny red bow tie.
"I'm sorry, that was my fault," Molly immediately apologizes.
"Don't worry, that was me. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," The man apologizes. Molly's ears perk up. "I don't mean to be blunt, but have you seen a big blue Police Phone Box?" The man asks.
Cam's eyes widen, but Molly jumps to the point. "I know you," Molly almost whispers.
"Molly, what are you saying?" Cam interjects.
The man raises an eyebrow. "I'm sorry. Do I know you?"
"You don't know me, but I know a hell of a lot about you," Molly laughs. "I'm Donna Noble's daughter Molly Temple and I remember everything, Doctor."
The man's eyes widen and his jaw drops. Cam is absolutely speechless. The man quickly walks around Molly and examines her. He pulls out what appears to be the Sonic Screwdriver and scans her. He checks the readings. "Oh my gosh. It is you. Wait, how much do you remember?" The man asks.
Molly shrugs. "Everything, I think."
The man crosses his arms. "What's my name?"
"Trick question. No one knows your name. Well, except that woman River Song you and my mom met in the Library. I just know you as the Doctor," Molly informs him with a shrug.
"You do remember almost everything. Thankfully all that Time Lord knowledge hasn't gotten to your head. That wouldn't be good. Your IQ is still relatively low in my opinion," The man mumbles.
"Oi! Watch it space man!" Molly snaps.
The man pushes his hair back. "Oh my goodness you are exactly like your mother. So your name is Molly Temple. I'm the Doctor, I've regenerated since your mum last saw me," The man greets offering his hand to her.
Molly smiles and shakes it. "Molly Temple, as you now know. This is my brother Cam."
"Thank goodness, you're not a boyfriend," The Doctor sighs. The three all laugh. "Now, I have a missing TARDIS. Do you two mind helping me find it?"
Molly nearly faints. "Is that a rhetorical question?" She laughs.
The Doctor grins. "I like you already, Molly Temple," Molly blushes. "Run quickly! The TARDIS keeps materializing all over London and if we don't find it now we'll lose it!"
Before Molly runs off she looks up at the sky. "Thank you for bringing me my star man," She whispers to no one.
"Molly!" The Doctor calls.
"Coming!" She replies.
