Get Me Out of Here! by JJPOR [Reviews - 8] Printer
Author's Notes:
Another entry for Primsong's "It Will Come for Your Children" series, if she'll have it. Double drabble this time, 200 words in MS Word. Maybe some explanation is in order; John "Johnny Chess" Chesterton is a character created, I believe, by Paul Cornell in long-ago 80s fanfic days, who used to get mentioned sometimes in things like the NAs. He was an 80s teen popstar, who was the son of One's companions Ian and Barbara and was at one point allegedly married to Tegan Jovanka. No, I'm not making this up. Well, we all know what happens to past-their-sell-by-date popstars... If you're outside the UK and don't know what "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!" is or who Ant and Dec are, all I can say is lucky, lucky you. ;D Obviously Doctor Who and all of its associated copyrights do not belong to me.


“Johnny Chess!” the stranger excitedly declared. The wet, bedraggled forty-something miserably looked up from his little cooking fire:

“Who are you?”

“Who am I?” the skinny newcomer grinned. “I’m only your mum and dad’s oldest friend!” He paused, thoughtfully: “And your first wife’s, come to think of it…and I might be your godfather; can’t really remember. Anyway, your last album was brilliant!”

“It went to number one,” said Johnny, unenthusiastically. “In Japan. What are you doing here?”

“What are you doing here?” the man asked.

“Living in the jungle, eating grubs.”

“Why are you doing that?” wondered the man, horrified. “Were you in a plane crash or something? Looks like I got here just in time!”

“No,” sighed Johnny. “It’s like… my agent said it could really boost my career, lead to a comeback, you know? Look what it did for Tony Blackburn!”

“Ah,” said the stranger, quietly. “I see. Reality TV.” He sounded as if he were discussing slavery or drug trafficking. “I was going to ask you to travel with me,” he added, sadly.

“Sorry,” shrugged Johnny, “I’m under contract. Now get out of here before Ant and Dec see you.”

“Don’t worry,” said the man, “I’m going.”
Doctor Who and its accoutrements are the property of the BBC, and we obviously don't have any right to them. Any and all crossover characters belong to their respective creators. Alas no one makes any money from this site, and it's all done out of love for a cheap-looking sci-fi show. All fics are property of their individual authors.
