Doctor Who: Tights, (Fitz, Turlough, Tegan, Jo), PG  
This sort of fits the prompt of Fitz and Turlough ditch class and smoke together, and they also sell contraband and other silly things. PG-rated het shippy goodness. :D Mickey makes a cameo, hahaha. Far too much fun to write. XDXD 1,500 words. XD Some mild bad language.

Happy Monday.

“Shit.” That was Fitz, pinching the end of his cigarette off to pocket it away.

“What?” Turlough asked looking around their semi secluded hiding spot behind the cafeteria, brows furrowing in alarm.

“Here come your missus,” Fitz explained, turning his head to nod at Tegan. She was stomping over the asphalt in the distance, looking indignant as always and heading right their way.

“Oh, piss off,” Turlough gumbled, shoving Fitz for the taunt. He pushed off the fence he was leaning against, dropped his cigarette and crushed it beneath his shoe. “What do you want, Tegan?” Turlough asked, glaring at her approach.

“Smoking on campus again, I see,” Tegan retorted when she was closer. “I ought to report you.”

“And I ought to punch you in the face,” Fitz jovially said. “But we all have to show a little restraint sometimes.” Seeing it was just her, he set about relighting his cigarette.

“Charming as ever, too,” Tegan snapped.

Trying to play peacemaker, Turlough intervened once more. “Locked out of your room again?” he asked.

Tegan colored up. “Of course not!”

“She just wants to antagonize someone and she knows you’re a pussy,” Fitz said. “Well, not today, Tegan. Get lost.”

After a moment’s consideration, biting back her words, Tegan composed herself and said, “I need something.”

“Oh?” Fitz asked, eyebrow arching. “This ought to be good.”

“I’ve got a ladder in my last pair of tights,” she explained, looking none too happy about admitting this. “I know you can get some more.”

Loftily, Fitz said, “You’re not supposed to be wearing tights.”

“And you’re not supposed to be smoking,” she countered.

“Trying out blackmail for a change?” Fitz asked, puffing lazily.

“I’m just trying to get some tights.”

“And if we don’t give them to you you’ll nark on us, is that it?”

Fitz,” Turlough began, tired of the back and forth argument.

“Gonna take the bird’s side again, aren’t you?” Fitz grumbled. “I could have guessed.”

“That’s not it at all,” Turlough protested.

“Well, we don’t got any, anyway,” Fitz said, looking at Tegan straight in the eye. “Most girls hereabouts don’t need tights.”

That wasn’t true, and they all knew it.

Seeing she was defeated, Tegan hissed, “You’re a real arsehole, you know that?”

“Such a mouth on her!” Fitz cried. “Why don’t you go ask to borrow a pair of Nyssa’s?” he teased more directly. “I hear you’re in her pants a lot as it is anyway.”

“How dare you!” Tegan snarled. She held her temper for a moment, and then turned and stalked away.

Fitz broke into a deep chuckle as she stomped off, then brightened as he saw a small little blonde heading their way from the direction Tegan was going.

“Morning, Tegan,” Jo politely said as she walked pass.

“Oh sod off,” Tegan snapped, not stopping.

A hurt look came over Jo’s face, and she swung the bag she was carrying between her legs a bit sullenly as she approached the boys. “You’re not upsetting the clientele again, are you Fitz?” she asked when she arrived, standing up on her toes to kiss his cheek.

“‘Course not, baby doll,” Fitz replied, kissing her back. “What brings you out here this morning?”

“Hi, Turlough,” Jo said in shy kindness, pushing her hair behind her ear.

Turlough was still watching Tegan stalking away across the courtyard and flushed a bit at being addressed. “Oh. Hey, Jo.” He blinked at her a few times, an idea forming.

“I brought you lunch, silly,” Jo said, turning her attention back to Fitz. “A delicious organic mushroom sandwich,” she said, extracting the item from her bag and displaying it proudly.

“Mushroom?” Fitz echoed, dismayed. “Never much liked mushrooms.”

Confusion beetled Jo’s brow. “You don’t? I thought you loved them.” She looked down thoughtfully. “Then who was it liked mushrooms?”

“Never you mind,” Fitz said, taking the sandwich and kissing her cheek again. “I’ll sell it to Adric; he’s always hungry.”

“Well, but then you’ll not have a lunch,” Jo protested mildly.

“You could run and get me something else. Bacon sandwich, yeah? And some tea, too.”

“All right,” Jo said, breaking into a little smile again. She kissed him gently and turned to go. As she did, Turlough stepped away from the fence.

“Where you going, Hot Rod?” Fitz asked.

“Gonna grab some lunch too,” Turlough lied. “I’ll be back soon.”

“Suit yourself,” Fitz said.

Once free, Turlough hurriedly caught up with Jo, keeping pace with her until they were well out of Fitz’s earshot.

“You following me?” Jo cheerfully asked.

“I’ve got a favor to ask,” Turlough said. Jo looked expectantly at him, so he launched into it. “See, Tegan locked herself out of her room again. Fitz refused to help her, and that’s why she was in such a bad mood,” he hastily explained.

“Oh, that’s too bad,” Jo said thoughtfully. “Donna doesn’t have a spare?”

“Uh. Donna’s in class until late, see. And Tegan needs in there now. So she can’t help.”

Swinging her bag again, this time quite pleased, Jo said, “And so you want me to pick the lock on her door for her again,” she stated.

“Would you?” Turlough asked.

“Of course. Since you asked so sweetly. I just have to get my tools. But I wonder… why didn't she just ask me?” Jo mused.

“Well,” Turlough began, thinking on his toes, “she didn’t want to do it right there in front of Fitz, you know. Probably best just to do it as a surprise and not tell her, anyway. You know how stubborn she can be.”

“Poor girl. She really needs to get laid, doesn’t she?”

Turlough colored up nicely. “Look, will it take very long? Picking the lock, I mean?”

“Not at all,” Jo said, smiling slyly at him. “I’ll just pop over there on my way to get Fitz his new sandwich,” she said. “Not more than ten minutes.”

“Thanks, Jo, you’re a lifesaver.”

“You’re not so bad yourself, Turlough,” she called. “When you want to be.”

Pretending he didn’t hear her, Turlough hustled back to his room, to get access to the contraband. He was lucky they had decided to stop keeping things in Fitz’s room; Steven was a lot less tolerant of their under-the-table dealings than Mickey.

Mickey was, in fact, lounging on his bed flipping through a very dirty magazine when Turlough hurried through the door. “Hey, don’t you know how to knock, mate?” he cried, quickly closing the magazine and sitting up.

“Lock the door if you don’t want someone walking in on your wank session,” Turlough muttered, not bothering to even look at him. He pulled the large trunk out from under his bed and popped it open, fishing through the contents—cigarettes, sweets, make-up, fancy scents, various types of alcohol and more. He found what he was looking for and pocketed it as quickly as possible, but not fast enough to escape Mickey’s watchful eye.

“Doing a bit of dress up then, eh?” he teased.

“Didn’t mean to interrupt your big date,” Turlough retorted. “I’ll let you get back to your hand.” He ignored the rude gesture Mickey gave him and hurried out of the room.

Just a few minutes later he was passing Jo in the corridor as he cautiously picked his way through the girl’s dormitory. “All done?” he asked.

“Just finished,” Jo said proudly. Then her eyes narrowed and she frowned. “Babs’ll give you hell if she catches you in here again.”

“Won’t be but a second. Thanks, Jo. Better get Fitzy his sandwich now.”

Shaking her head, Jo smiled. “Yes, all right. You be careful though. No one’s going to believe you’re Mel a second time.”

Turlough didn’t bother replying, just waved his hand and hurried along.

He found the door to Tegan and Donna’s room unlocked and let himself in. Flipping on the light, he stood looking at the twin beds for several seconds. Deciding that Tegan’s was the one with the stupid looking teddy bear leaning against the pillow, he crossed to it and reached into his pocket.

“Donna? What’re you doing back alread—Turlough!!”

Stiffening at the unmistakable voice, Turlough spun around. There he found Tegan framed in the doorway, hands on her hips, about to give him hell. “Hello, Tegan,” he said, trying to recover his cool. “Jo let me in. I was just… returning some books I borrowed from Donna.”

“The hell you were,” Tegan growled, not even looking around for said books. She stalked into the room, shoving past him. “What were you doing to my bed? You little creep, I swear to God, if I find you’ve left some used condom or something…”

“Oh, as if anyone would bother,” he called.

Taking her distraction of looking at the bed to escape, Turlough bolted out the door and down the stairs as fast as he could, leaving a dumbfounded Tegan staring in disbelief at the three-pack of tights he had just left on her bed.
