Intertwine

Intertwine"What's this ball thing?"

The Doctor's hammering echoed throughout the room. "The red and white one?"

"With a little dent on top." Rose tossed the object from hand to hand.

"It's a Dreeth children's toy, like cat's cradle." He continued working until heard a series of grunts and a thump near the console. "Rose?"

The Doctor stuck his head up through a floor panel to find Rose struggling in a knot of strings that spun out from the ball. "Did I mention that the Dreeth are an arachnid-like race? You need more than two hands to play with that toy."

Some things are not as innocuous as they seem.

That's so much the alien side of the Doctor. It wouldn't occur to him to warn Rose until it was too late. lol!

Thank you!

Didn't think the muse was going to come through on this challenge. Better late than never.

Hee. I bet Rose had some words for the Doctor after that.

I just learned that the "new" Dr. Who is coming to the Sci Fi channel here in America, so this will be my first opportunity to see it ... although I feel like I know the group well, from your fics.

Words like hand me the scissors and pass the mallet.

I hope you enjoy the new series. The second series kicks off in the UK in April, so I'll be downloading madly until the ABC screens the show a couple of months later. Still don't know if Tennant will be able to pull it off. He's a big fanboy and has mighty big shoes to fill.

Caught most of the first two episodes, and liked it a lot. Boy, the state of special effects has certainly changed on that show, hasn't it?

But it's been years since I watched Dr. Who, so I'm not comparing this Doc with the others as much as most fans will be.
