Statecraft

Rose was stretched out on a hillside, leaning back on her elbows to watch the distant spectacle. "So this kite thing is their form of parliament, yeah?" A raptor-like kite swooped around a box kite, as hundreds of tiny, long-tailed kites traced curlicues around the combatants.

The Doctor turned to face Rose, smiling at her entranced expression. "It's unique in the galaxy. They handle all of their arguments the same way. Imagine a war where the only casualties are toys. Genius!"

An enormous dragon kite shot up to part the two battling kites. "Their adjudicator is very pretty."
