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).

Worrals: Ian and Babs pwning you all.livii on October 27th, 2007 05:03 am (UTC)
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!"

Re: Ian/Barbara
I figure that the best way to keep this alive is to requires remotely possibly pairings. I think the last drabble tag died so quickly, because while Rose/Benton is fun-hard to write, Mickey/Davros is wildly impossible. So, yeah. Saving the wild prompts for later, me. XD

"requires" is somehow "request"

Re: Ian/Barbara
Awwww. Even as a school boy, Ian wears a cardigan. (He's like Mr Rogers in that way.)

Re: Ian/Barbara
It's just so inherently Ian, I couldn't leave it out! Plus, it made me smile like crazy to picture him wearing it as a schoolboy. :D :D

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.
