Bouquet

BouquetLooking out the window, Rose could see a huge fire blazing across the town below. "Where are we?"

"September 1666. Great Fire of London." The Doctor folded his arms and surveyed the devastation in progress. "Helped stop the plague."

Absently scratching her leg, Rose froze at his words. "So aside from fleas and rat bites, I could be infected with the Black Death?"

"TARDIS will fix you right up. Thought you'd like to see a little history."

Rose leaned out, smelling smoke and the ripe aroma of 17th century London. "Next time can we pick a place with indoor plumbing?"

I expect most European cities were much the same.

Heh.

I do love Rose's last sentence.

Thanks!

I'm sure you'd get used to the smell, I just don't think Rose needs to know that.

WORD. Crowded busses in summer are bad enough. It boggles the mind to imagine the stink of an entire city, especially in the middle of a plague outbreak, with a raging fire on top of that. *pinches nose shut*

A bit like travelling to Bangkok, really.

And now the doctor must be infected and is seperated from the Tardis and whumping ensues, in a nice long whumpy fic. Yes? I'm prepared to grovel. Honestly.

challenge: bloody, brutal, deathly, agonising, groteque suffering.

moooooooooooWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

::cough::

don't mind me. i'm off to find some whumping before i implode.

Could probably go the Doctor with Wolf, don't know if I can do whumping with Rose. It can be tough enough with Wolf, she tends to kill things prior to the whumping.

Though that general time period is interesting, he could've chosen slightly better times to show her. :)

Which reminds me. I've been seeing over here a digital camera ad featuring this dude who looks disturbingly like your DW actor.

Got an example? Print? Telly? Make and model of camera? Am curious now.

His name is Christopher Eccleston.

It's an HP one, I think. When their ads come on, I'm usually more interested in the cool effects used than the make, but I think that's right. Only trouble is, I don't think the new series airs over here, so it wouldn't make sense for him to be appearing in an American commercial.

It'd be nowhere near as interesting if it was.
