Fic: ‘Their new butler.’  
Title: Their new butler.
Fandom: Doctor Who.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Between episodes three (3) & four (4), Pond Life.
Summary: Rory feels he’s somehow lost.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I could imagine this conversation happening before the fourth episode of Pond Life and after the third episode of Pond Life. It happens nicely between the two.

“Have you gotten through to the Doctor yet?”

Amy looks up, thoughtfully. “Hm?”

“Have you been able to get through to the Doctor?” Rory sits next to her on the couch. “I’ve tried but he never seems to be in.”

Amy turns a page in her magazine. “I keep getting his answerphone,” she replies. “He never answers his phone, I think.” She looks at Rory. “I used to answer his phone all the time when I was on the TARDIS.”

“So we have to wait ‘til he drops in again?” Rory sighs. “That’ll be the time he remembers our rule about the bedroom.”

“Your infusion,” the Ood announces as it hands Amy a mug of coffee. “How else may I be of assistance?”

“You could fetch the master a glass of wine,” Amy says quickly, with a glance to Rory.

The Ood bows and leaves to fetch the wine. Rory stares at his wife.

“What?” She asks, her expression innocently blank. “He asked how he may be of assistance. It would have been rude to say nothing.”

“He’s not our butler!” Rory exclaims. “He needs to be picked up!”

“How do we know it wouldn’t be rude to let him be of service?” Amy fires back. “Let him be of service until the Doctor comes to get him.”

“We’re taking advantage of him!” Rory regards his wife closely. “He---we---” He pauses; Amy sips her coffee, watching him over the rim of her mug. “Only,” he relents, “to give him something to do.”

“Of course,” Amy nods, without a smile. “Only jobs enough to keep him feeling useful.”

Somehow, Rory feels he lost.

I love this! The idea of them having an Ood butler is just so, so funny.

Rory feels so guilty over having the Ood butler; I just couldn't help imagining the moment he capitulated!

Thank you! =P

*snickering* I can't decide if 'Ood butler' is funnier than 'Ood on the loo' or not...

Ood on the loo is definitely more giggle-worthy.
