“Would you like a cup of tea?”

She regards him with a certain nod; he grins. “Be right back then!” He pauses. “I'm almost sure we have a kitchen.”

She watches as he goes to the corridor and turns left. A few seconds later, he's walked right, muttering. When he doesn't come back, she turns to the central pillar as she's seen him do.

“Right,” she begins, brown eyes quiet, serious. “You are a grumpy cow who doesn't like me and that's okay. But,” she continues, “it's got to stop. Right. Now.”

The central pillar flashes indignantly.

“I've seen your voice visual interface thing so I know you can talk to me,” she says dryly, head tilted, arms crossed, “so your light show means nothing to me other than you being a grumpy cow who refuses to talk.”

She regards the central pillar quietly, simply. “You and I might not get along but,” a slight breath, “I want to say thank you. Because I know you didn't want to go for me but I think you went for him and for that, I'm grateful.

“So, thank you.”

“Thank me for what?”

She turns, smiles. “For that cup of tea, of course,” she says, reaching for the saucer.

Then she stops, holds up the biscuit with half missing. “And this?”

He smiles. “A jammy dodger. Drink up,” he instructs and turns to the console.

Oh, this is perfect! Especially the Doctor walking the wrong way, the half-eaten biscuit and the flashing pillar!
F. J.: Lanterns: Warmmorethanacandle on April 21st, 2013 05:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you, very much; I couldn't resist any of those, I must admit!

I love it! I love the fact that you used the cow line again, that Clara wasn't impressed by the TARDIS and all, and yet that she thanked her for going back for the Doctor. It was a perfect mix between daring and respectful and subtly emotional. And the bits of Eleven were adorable =)

Oh my gosh! Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Lovely, very cute little details and you got their voices perfectly.

you got their voices perfectly.
That's a relief, with regards to Clara, as this was the first time I'd written her!

Thank you!

I love this! So much nuance in such a short piece. :)
F. J.: Lantern & Candles: Warmmorethanacandle on April 22nd, 2013 12:26 am (UTC)
Wow --- thank you!

Thank you!

Oh yes, she'd be indignant. She might be grumpy because Clara is a paradox? Anyway, cute :)
F. J.: Three candlesmorethanacandle on May 3rd, 2013 02:03 pm (UTC)
I don't know if Clara's a paradox; I'm wanting to find out more before I say 'hah! That's why she was mad!'.

And thank you!
Mae: matt as 11mae_linda on May 3rd, 2013 02:12 pm (UTC)
Actually I hope she's River :)

She keeps popping up in history, so I wonder what Mr. Moffat is planning . . .
F. J.: Three candlesmorethanacandle on May 3rd, 2013 02:25 pm (UTC)
Actually I hope she's River :)
Why's that?

so I wonder what Mr. Moffat is planning . . .
Don't we all?
Maemae_linda on May 3rd, 2013 02:30 pm (UTC)
Because it would give River continuity with the Doctor. Essentially, I would be very sad if she were to only be in his life during her parent's time with him.

Yes well, can't wait for the last episode. Are the rumours true, is Moffat stepping down?
F. J.: Three candlesmorethanacandle on May 3rd, 2013 02:36 pm (UTC)
if she were to only be in his life during her parent's time with him.
It has been said she'll be on the TARDIS this year, if I recall.

Are the rumours true, is Moffat stepping down?
Not to my knowledge, no.
Maemae_linda on May 3rd, 2013 02:42 pm (UTC)
She could be on the TARDIS even if he retrieves her from The Library and saves her in the TARDIS. As well I don't think she and Clara would work together. Besides we haven't seen Clara and River together, ever. And River usually visits . . .

Good, I'd miss his emotional torture.
F. J.: Three candlesmorethanacandle on May 3rd, 2013 02:52 pm (UTC)

Very true.
