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).

"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...

Re: Rose/Benton

There is something sinister lurking beneath this school, yes.

And I just realized that if you did one of your challenges, that means I can answer one of mine. WIN.

Re: Rose/Benton
Heh, I wanted to get a few more 'easy' pairings out there, like Van suggested, and the first one that came to mind was a lil' bit of my favourite couple, so... :D

Re: Rose/Benton
Hee, thanks! What I particularly love about this AU is you can write it as straight or alien or anything you feel like at all at the time. Plus, as much Rose/Benton as you want. :D :D

Harry/Sarah Jane
"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.

Re: Harry/Sarah Jane
Awwww! Poor Sarah, but oh, this is so cute. And you know you can play to me with Harry/Martha in any form EVER. :D

Sarah will get one over on Harry in the end, no worries. ;D

Re: Harry/Sarah Jane
I hoped no one would be like "AUGH BUT BUT BUT!!!" since it's not REALLY Sarah/Harry, but. Whatever. Sarah will be brillant in some other way, and yes. Harry/Martha. XDXD

Re: Harry/Sarah Jane
Oh, I'm not upset, just a wee bit wibbly for Sarah, but you really do just know she'll be fine (stupid New Who retcon aside - we just watched Invasion of the Bane, actually, and I almost cried at them playing up the "how could I love after the Doctor?" bit again, ARGH). So, yeah, Sarah will get him back and it will be hilarious and all will be well. :D

Re: Harry/Sarah Jane
I think Sarah would get along well with Liz. They should plot something devious together. Perhaps involving smut.
