Ambuscade 02: Hiatus

As his companions explored the room, the Doctor looked from the window to the monitor. The settings suddenly made sense. "It looks like we landed on a transport vessel from the undersea mining operation to the surface. We'll be stuck here for 48 hours."

Rose froze midway through ferreting through a drawer whose only contents were a Gideon bible and tentacle porn. "We're trapped?"

Jack was putting the room's fab unit through its paces. He passed martinis to Rose and the Doctor. "We have a huge bed and an open bar. I'm sure we'll find some way to amuse ourselves."

A Gideon Bible and tentacle porn -- this is a beautiful throwaway juxtaposition. And there would be a Gideon Bible in the drawer; I swear, those things breed when you're not looking, and will soon start infiltrating seat pockets on airplanes. :-)

That sentence broke me - the juxtaposition was just beautiful!

You're going to be disappointed when you only find the bible now, aren't you?

*grins* Quite possibly! Although I'll always associate the two now, so when I find a gideon I'll think of tentacles :)

I couldn't resist the combination.

will soon start infiltrating seat pockets on airplanes — Oi! I'm flying next week, stop giving them ideas.

The things you find in hotel drawers that you'd rather not know who they got there.
