ONE / video

[the feed clicks on -- and bounces, as if the device has just fallen from some height. we can see an object in the distance that's faintly recognisable as the fountain, and in the foreground, something very large and very blue and sort of wooden. sort of like a big blue box. hm.

suddenly the box door creaks open, releasing some very chaotic things-exploding-cloister-bell-tolling sorts of noises and a not inconsiderable amount of smoke. then a pair of boots come dashing out -- we only see the boots for now, and a bit of trouser leg. somebody coughs violently. the door swings shut.]


---And, you know, I don't remember fiddling around with the desktop theme! I liked my desktop theme, it was all... gadgety and cool, and I'll thank whoever it was to change it back, if you don't mind!

I'll have Amy back, too, while you're at it. We're on a bit of a tight schedule.

[the boots turn this way and that, but find no culprit. then -- pause. a long, long, utterly silent pause. when the voice comes again it's very quiet.]

...it can't be them. They can't be here, they're gone, I swear they're--

Oh. Oh, hello.

[the boots advance until they're right in front of the device, then in a flash we have an excellent view of the Doctor, belly-down on the sidewalk and peering into the camera with every sign of great interest]

What. Have. We. Here.

[he taps on it with each syllable, taking great care to leave a long space before the last one. then he reaches awkwardly into his inside pocket, pulling out his sonic screwdriver, shining it at the device -- everything goes green for a moment, and a funny sound blasts. satisfied, he picks up the device and stands up again.]

Hello? Anybody out there? More importantly, anybody out there who can tell me where I am? I always know where I am, or else I can feel it out, but this is -- it's like I've had a good whack alongside my head, you know, which I probably have, things got a bit sketchy on the trip here. I'm getting a definite head/floor sort of vibe. But anyway -- I don't like not knowing where I am.

Not too fond of this ticking, either. It never usually ticks in my head, that's a clock thing. A human trait. It feels... wrong.

[he looks faintly worried now]

...a lot of things feel wrong, here.


[ooc: feel free to action if you'd like to run into him! also slightly placeholdery, I should probably sleep before I fall over.]

Of course it feels wrong. It's the City.
The City with a capital C? That never tends to bode very well.
Capital C I'm afraid. You know this place?

[Dead....air. Someone is staring and trying to puzzle it out, not to mention decide what to do.]
[And this one's just going to frown at the device]

Hello? Not that I don't appreciate a good heavy-breathing phone call once in a while, but if you could make a bit of noise so I know this thing's not just playing up...?
It could be. Playing up, I mean. It does tend to.

[Paaaauuuse.]

[There's a loooong pause of dead air as the following thoughts wander through Romana's head. "That's the TARDIS. But that's not where the TARDIS was last parked, was it? And that's not the Doctor. Or is it? Is he cursed? He must be cursed. If it's him, which it might not be. But that's definitely a Time Lord with a sonic screwdriver and- oh, gracious, these curse days... Well I suppose i should just ask and be done with it."]

Who are you?

[A very short distance away, half-hiding herself against a wall, a small figure is staring in surprised awe at both the Doctor and the Tardis.

To look at her you'd think she's straight out of a Dickensian novel, malnourished and grubby, her clothes mostly rags. A puppy is sitting at her feet, and she looks like she's trying to build up the courage to move closer.]
[The Doctor, meanwhile, is busy giving his Network device a bit more of a sonic, possibly trying to activate a GPS that isn't there. When that doesn't work, he pirouettes, taking in his surroundings with a thoughtful frown.

Which is when he catches sight of that grubby little figure and puts on a reassuring smile.]


Oh, now we're talking. Life, possibly human, always a good sign.

Hello?

Hullo.
Hello! Let me guess: I'm in the City with a capital C?
Yes, that's right. I'm afraid getting back will not be an easy thing.

The ticking goes away when you're around other people...it's the City's way of forcing people to be social.

Yeah, this place is about twelve kinds of wrong...well, it's also two kinds of awesome, but that still leaves ten kinds of wrong, sooo....
Forcing people to be social. That's new. A bit new.

I haven't quite gotten to the two kinds of awesome yet, and I think it's probably got an extra kind of wrong if you're psychically sensitive, a sort of an echo-y... wrongness. So I'd be interested to know where the exit is.

I know! It's really strange...

Well, the two kinds of awesome are pretty awesome. I mean, I got to meet Harry Dresden!! That alone is worth one of the two kinds of awesome!!


Ehhh...there kiiiinda isn't an exit...so you might wanna settle in, get a roommate, or a pet sheep or dog or something....
Sorry...

I'm Hanna, by the way!

Sorry! Just, you know, sonicking things. I do that.

How can you have-
[ The gears are turning and she's piecing things together. She knows the Doctor can regenerate, and that her Doctor isn't the only one, but damn. Never thought she'd see another one of him or another TARDIS. "How can you have the TARDIS," she means to say, or "How can you be coming out of the one I'm in?" Yeah, no more words. ]
How can I have...? Such a great sense of style? I've just always been this way, I'm afraid -- can't teach a thing like that.

[Of course, he hasn't got the first clue that it's her yet, or else there would be NO JOKES EVER at least for a good few minutes.]

No, seriously, what do I have so I can tell you how I have it?

Blimey.
