Drabble Tag!  
The prompts battle didn't take off, and I have a feeling the momentum behind this comm is gone, but it's Friday night for me and I want distractions from everything else I'm supposed to be writing. So let's have a game of drabble tag - goal is to pair up every student/teacher/guest lecturer (which means any other Who-character or crossovers) in every combination!

Loose rules are that we'll start off with a few pairings; when you write one, put it as a reply with the pairing in the subject line, and then add three more pairings of your own to keep things going. No word minimums or limits, just have fun! (You can find our very loose character list here to remind you of what's what if needed, or just go wild).

Jack/The Brigadier
"And how is this supposed to raise money for the Academy?" the Brig asked archly.

"Simple," said Jack. "You and I get naked together. Underage erotica occurs. Really sexy underage erotica, I might add. Frobisher films it all, Mickey uploads it onto the website K9 and Kamelion set up, we charge per download and let money flow in. We'll have enough for a swimming pool in no time."

"Right," said the Brig. "And what if the Headmaster finds out?"

Jack grinned. "I'm sure he'll applaud our initiative."

Mel/The Rani
It wasn’t Mel’s fault. Not really. Rose had dared her and then Polly had stole the Headmistress’ leather jumpsuit and by then everyone knew about it (and Ace had confided to her that the lower forms had a betting pool on whether she actually would follow through, so Mel better get on with it before Susan got all of Ace’s pocket money.)

So, you see, it wasn’t really Mel’s fault that she ended up locking the Headmistress in her office before Assembly and taking her place at the podium in order to give a speech on the importance of computers, carrot juice, and kicking the arse of those jerks at the Torchwood co-educational. She certainly didn’t see why she should have to run laps under the supervision of the Assistant Headmistress, especially with Helen A’s quite obviously mutant dog, Fifi, chasing after her.

Oh well. At least Mel was in good shape. And if the Headmistress had expected Mel to be panting and wheezing when she’d shown up at the end of the detention, her expression hadn’t betrayed any disappointment. In fact, she seemed rather amused by the whole thing and was positively smirking when she ordered Mel to her office.

It turned out that she was conducting an experiment just how loudly a person could scream in the throws of passion. And after Mel’s little prank, didn’t she feel obligated to help her Headmistress with the experiment?

As it turned out, Mel did.

Worrals: I have a girlcrush on Jo.livii on October 28th, 2007 07:36 am (UTC)
This is kinda crap, but I wanted to write one more before bed.

"Sometimes," Jo moaned, flopping back onto Rose's bed, "I think my boyfriend's just a little bit..."

"Fruity? Flamboyant? Homosexual?" Rose supplied, lounging on the chair opposite.

"Rose!" Jo said, pouting. "That's an awfully rude way of putting it."

"Fine, Fitz is quite interested in getting his end away with Turlough, then, that more accurate?"

"Well...I suppose that's fair," Jo said, "but it doesn't mean I have to like it. I mean, honestly! What am I supposed to do while he's off chasing that ginger bastard all over the place?"

"I felt that was obvious from the moment you decided to sprawl yourself all over my bed, hair in attractive disarray and top buttons on your shirt conveniently undone."

Jo tugged at her shirt, blushing.

"No, it's okay," Rose said soothingly, moving over to lie down next to Jo. "I've caught Benton's eye on Yates more than I'd like to admit. It's not fair, really, how many utterly attractive people there are wandering around these two schools. I swear it should be illegal."

"Both schools?" Jo said, looking up at Rose hopefully.

"Yes, yes, you're a lovely girl," Rose said, grinning.

"Oh, good," Jo said, and turned on Rose with surprising quickness, getting a hand under her shirt and her lips on Rose's neck before the other girl could react. "Oops!" she said, giggling, "got a little lipstick there. That's not regulation. Better watch out the Headmistress doesn't catch you."

"You're crazy," Rose said, "but that's my kind of crazy."

Later, Benton and Fitz both felt like they'd really dodged a bullet, given that their girlfriends no longer seemed to care about where their eyes might wander.

Liz/Sarah Jane
“What are you doing?” Sarah stuck her head round the door of the science lab.

“An experiment,” Liz murmured vaguely, tipping a measure of a clear liquid from a beaker into a flask.

“Will it blow up the school? If it blows up the school, I can write an article about it.”

“And if it doesn’t blow up the school?” Liz plugged in a rather strange looking device and turned round to face Sarah.

Sarah shrugged. “I can still write the article. I need practice and the school newspaper needs news.”

“I’m not sure everyone finds my experiments as thrilling as you do. And the last time you wrote an article about my work, it took me an hour to correct it.”

Sarah smiled winningly. “How about if I pass you your test tubes and tell you how wonderful you are?

“How about I kiss you now?”

“I like your suggestion better.”

Liz’s experiment did not blow up the school. But, when left unattended for a while, it did manage to make a rather large explosion and effectively destroy the science lab while also shorting out all the electricity, causing havoc as night fell.

All in all, it was a good job that Liz and Sarah weren’t in there. They didn’t even notice the distressing-yet-entertaining lack of power, being otherwise occupied.

Turlough was whistling--actually whistling!--as he briskly strolled down the corridor of the boy's dormitory, hands in his pockets. He couldn't say why, exactly, but he was having a good day. He'd scored high marks on his chemistry exam, and if the weather continued to be gloomy, sports would be called off. He was on his way to his favorite class and he couldn't complain.

So when a strong hand reached out from a doorway, grabbed his tie and dragged him inside, he was more than a little startled. Of course, it was too good to last!

His assailant slammed him up against the interior wall, and Turlough brought up his fists to defend himself. That's when his tie is grabbed nd his finds himself hauled forward, until his mouth is crushed against someone else's. It hot and hard and the taste of stale cigarettes and cheap booze tells him it's Fitz before his eyes do and he relaxes, just a bit, and kissed back.

Then, just as violently as he'd been shoved, he pushed Fitz off him. "You're going to make me late for class," he snapped, feigning anger.

"Is that any way to greet an old mate?" Fitz replied, wiping his mouth and still staring at Turlough's lips.

"Just because Jo won't put out, don't assume I always will."

"Never take you for granted," Fitz said with a sagacious nod, but the way he played with Turlough's tie didn't help him seem serious. "Just a friendly snog between friends, yeah?"

Turlough watched Fitz's hands. "Had to drag me into an empty store closet for a snog, did you?"

"Well, you know me, wouldn't have said no to a bit of fun."

"I really am going to be late for class," Turlough said. Narrowing his eyes, he continued, "And so are you, I might add."

"So?" Fitz said, grinning lopsidedly. "Better late than never, right?"

"I don't think that's how the saying goes," Turlough protested mildly. Despite himself, a giddy, tingly sensation was rippling through him. Sighing at last he said, "All right." Fitz lit up like a puppy going out for a walk and it was such an infectious smile Turlough couldn't help but smile back as he led Fitz lead him away from the wall by his tie.

Barbara Wright, Head Girl, studious, President of the History Club, was carefully laying out her skirt and blouse for the next day before retiring to bed. The last thing she expected was something scratching and scrabbling at her bedroom window.

She turned around, grabbing her table lamp as a weapon. The window opened and a boy tumbled through. She hit him over the head before he had a chance to react, or attack her.

"Ow, Barbara!" the boy complained, and even before turning on the light, Barbara knew it was Ian.

"I'm so sorry, Ian!" she said, rushing over to help him up. She took his head in her hands and gingerly probed his skull, finding only a small lump, but no blood. Ian shook her off and stood up straight.

"That's the thanks I get for risking my neck to come visit you?" he said. Barbara wanted to apologize further, but was finding it hard not to giggle, as Ian's hair was standing up in all directions, his cardigan was askew, and he appeared to have lost a shoe along the way.

Ian looked down at his clothing, and blushed. "There's something living in that lake, I swear," he said. "I don't think it's safe to go back out there, to be honest. I, er, might need to stay until it's light out."

"I have a torch," Barbara volunteered, then relented as Ian's face fell. "Oh, come here, you big baby," she said. "It is quite lovely to see you. I look a fright though, honestly, you could have warned me."

"I think you look beautiful," Ian choked out. Barbara looked down; she'd moved into the glow of the moonlight, and her nightdress was distinctly improperly closed.

Barbara grinned. "Slow down, tiger," she said, moving to undo the buttons on Ian's cardigan. "We have until it gets light, don't you remember?"


"Weird," Ace whispered, as she and Nyssa snuck down the corridor. "Sounds like the old girl is giggling. Didn't think she had it in her!"

Martha Jones and Rose Tyler were both prefects. They were supposed to be responsible, sensible and set an example to the younger students.
So when Martha spotted Ace and Nyssa out of bounds late at night, she told them off as befitted her role as a sensible, responsible prefect.

Thinking back over it later, she thought that perhaps the moral force of her scolding might have been impaired by a few little things.

Things like how she and Rose had been equally out of bounds, sitting in a dark corner at the club, and how both of them had been quite drunk, which probably affected the clarity of her speech.

The fact that Rose had been sitting in her lap, giggling and playing with Martha’s hair, and had twice interrupted her by kissing her squarely on the mouth probably hadn’t helped either.

A responsible, sensible prefect would always ensure the moral high ground, she was sure. By never breaking the rules or having any fun, she was equally sure. Sod it.

Selective blindness was a wonderful thing, Ace thought, as she sauntered past Martha and Rose’s corner for the fifth time in as many minutes.

"You know," Benton said, idly stroking Rose's hair, which was spilled across his chest, "sometimes I really have the most amazing dreams."

Rose propped herself up on an elbow and looked at her boyfriend critically. "We talking about dreams, now? Blimey, that's a new post-coital routine for me."

Benton frowned, and Rose laughed. "Go on, then," she said.

"I think I'm meant to join the army when I leave school," Benton continued. "I mean, it comes up often enough. And aliens. That's the other main bit."

Rose, who had been nodding along at the army bit (true, she'd mind if he were posted abroad somewhere, but the thought of him in a uniform was extremely appealing), stopped short at the bit about aliens.

"You're kidding, right?"

"It's not so weird," Benton said, defensively. "After all, what about the lake monsters?"

"Squid," Rose said firmly, "nothing but a freakishly giant squid."

"That time a different man showed up and claimed to be Prydonian's Headmaster and announced his plans for intergalactic domination?"

"Clearly a deranged psychopath, or an unfortunate relative."

"Professor Davros?"

"...well, you may have a point."

"These schools are weird," Benton said vehemently. "I'll never forgive my parents for not sending me to Eton when they had the chance."

"Think you'd have met as pretty girls at Eton?" Rose said, shimmying her hips and causing Benton to become distracted. "And found the Heads to be as easily tricked to let us spend time together?"

"You really make a terrible boy," Benton said, reaching out to touch the breasts that should have given Rose's disguise away, had anyone in charge been paying the slightest attention to the meanderings between the schools the boys and girls undertook.

Rose laughed, and leaned in to kiss Benton's neck. "Besides," she said, licking his pulse point, "I can't imagine the school without sweet Nyssa and Adric, could you? And having Frobisher around is just the cutest thing ever."

Benton jumped backwards, staring at Rose in disbelief. "Nyssa?" he said.

"Oh come on, like you didn't know," Rose said, giggling, and without further ado she slid further down the bed and shut Benton up quite effectively.

Down the hall, Frobisher tossed and turned in his sleep. There was this man in a garish coat...

"Well?" Sarah Jane asked, turning to the side to show off the cute skirt she had put on. "Do you like this one more or less than the pink one?"

Harry was seated at a desk, looking out of the second story window, into the courtyard below.

"Harry!" Sarah called.

"Hmm?" Harry turned, looking at Sarah, slowly realizing he was meant to answer a question he hadn't heard. "I'm sorry, old girl, what's that?"

Sighing good naturedly, Sarah repeated her turn, displaying the skirt, which had a cute poodle apliqued to it. "Do you like this one more or less than the pink one?"

At a loss for how to reply, Harry simply said, "I like them both."

Sarah gave him a tight smile. "I'm writing an article for the school paper about how the upcoming school play, Harry. I'd like your opinion on which you'd prefer for costumes!"

"You know, I've not really got the best fashion sense," Harry admitted, glancing out the window again distractedly.

"Well, you must have some preference," Sarah insisted. When Harry said nothing, she continued on a little louder. "I think I like the blue better," she said in a leading voice, smoothing down the skirt.

Harry was, once again, not paying attention, staring out the window.

"What's so fascinating outside that you can't pay attention to me?" Sarah demanded, moving over to where he sat.

"I'm sorry, Sarah," Harry suddenly said, rising to his feet. "Do you mind if nip outside real quick? I'll just be a moment. That's a good girl," he said, giving her an affectionate pat on the arm. Without waiting for her answer, Harry hurried out of the classroom.

Feeling a strange tightness well up inside, Sarah looked out the window, where she saw Martha trekking across the green on here way across the campus. Sarah didn't have to watch to know that Harry was rushing outside to meet her, and turned away before she had to watch Harry pour all his attentions into the other pretty girl.

Sighing, she flopped back into the chair Harry had vacated, looking down at her skirt. Drawing herself up determinedly, she said, "Blue it is then" and set about tidying up. She had an article to write, after all.

Jamie McCrimmon was slightly surprised when a hand shot out of the door for the needlepoint club and pulled him in. Zoe locked the door behind him, then in a sharp fluid movement she slammed Jamie into the wall.
“ Steady on lassie!”
She jabbed her finger at him.
“ You. Stop talking.”
Zoe could be pretty fierce when she wanted to be Jamie decided.
As one thing led to another Jamie reached for the zip of her cat suit and tugged on it. Nothing happened. He tugged on it again. Still nothing happened.
“ Jamie what is taking so long?”
“ The zip! It’s jammed.”
“ Pull on it!”
“ I have!”
“ You are useless!”
Zoe grabbed the zip on her cat suit and tugged. After several failed attempts she let out a cry of frustration.
“ Jamie, get some lip balm out of Victoria’s bag.”

*10 Minutes later*

“ It’s not working.”
“ I know that Jamie.”
“ Any other ideas?”
“ Get that candle and rub it on the teeth of the zip.”

*20 Minutes later*

Jamie picked up a pair of sewing scissors and held them up.
“ Can’t we just cut you out?”
“ No!”
She muttered something.
“ What?”
She shot him a thunderous look.
“ Bloody E-bay!”
“ E-bay?”
“ I bought it a couple of months ago on e-bay. It’s my favourite!”
Jamie glanced at the scissors.
“ Come on Zoe, if you ever want to get it off-”
She whacked him on the crown of his head and stormed out. A few moments later Victoria entered, she stopped in her tracks when she saw Jamie, lipstick smeared across his cheek and her lip balm in his hand.
“ Victoria it’s not what you think.”
“ No it’s fine. F-fine. Anyway at least it explains the kilt.”
