Pulse

PulseThe man trying to chat Rose up wasn't getting the message that she'd rather be elsewhere.

Jack held her hand up to show the stranger their matching bracelets were displayed a synchronous cycle of lights. "Sorry, pal, she's taken."

Rose watched him shrug and walk away. "What was that about?"

"This is a matrimonial band."

"We're married?"

Jack grinned broadly. "Not exactly. They have a triune marriage based on people whose compatibility is indicated by these bracelets."

"They're fakes?"

Jack nodded at the Doctor, who waved back allowing Rose to see his own bracelet pulsed to match their own.

"Oh."

Sorry for the sluggishness. Stupid LJ not sending replies.

My idea comes from me fiddling with my new geek bracelets and a wacky Japanese compatibility profile dating gadget. I was thinking of the truine marriages from Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos and as that was a small community, I figured something more obvious would be needed for larger populations. So, why not go techie and garish.
