Quiescence 02: Switch

SwitchRose was lying stretched out on the deck, shining a torch into the open area where the Doctor was working.

"Is it supposed to be like that?"

"What?" The Doctor paused in his fiddling and looked up.

"Are the switches below the flange meant to be in that position, when the ones on the other side go the other way?"

The Doctor turned around to get a better view. "Ah." He toggled the switches and the TARDIS' comforting hum started again.

Rose grinned at the Doctor, covering her mouth as it turned into a yawn. "Not totally useless, am I?"

Ah, the ever popular "Did you plug it in? Did you turn it on?" *snickers quietly*

To be fair to the Doctor, he couldn't see the switch positions from his vantage point. The hundred word curse strikes again. Might added to this as-yet-unnamed !verse and see if I can wangle that in.

Might run with this one for a couple more parts. ::pokes muse, gets grunted at:: Well, maybe.

Still needs a !verse title...

Looks like I may have to get into the the Doctor Who fandom, despite never having seen so much as a single episode of any of them, if it's going to become one your new major writing staples. Guess that'll make it Fandom #81 or so... Suggestions on places to start immersing myself would not be unwelcome. :)

P.S. I haven't heard, did you get that beta I sent back to you on Sunday or did it get sucked into the ether again?

Start with the ninth Doctor, the episodes are still easy to find on Bittorrent.

Beta has vanished. Cursed internets. Can you send it again please.

In this case the Doctor couldn't have seen the switches from the angle he was at, still doesn't mean he didn't move them in the first place and forget about them
