1. Prologue: What The Parrot Said by TheBigCat [Reviews - 0] (1749 words)
Oh, hey there, Whofic! It's been a while. (And it's good to be back, incidentally. Good to see you all.)
This story is an AU of an already-existing Big Finish audio drama – 115: Forty-Five, which is an anthology of connected short stories featuring the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Hex. The final one of these stories pits them against arguably one of the best villains of Doctor Who (if not all time). I highly recommend listening to Forty-Five, or at least the final story (The Word Lord), which is available on the Big Finish website for a pretty small price, standalone. But even if you haven't, this story should (hopefully) still make sense?
This is a very self-indulgent story, by the way. I referenced a lot of other audios (nothing immensely spoilerific, don't worry) and generally didn't take myself too seriously at all.
Thanks to Mags from the Yuletide Discord for providing me with a cool history lesson on Alexandria and lynch mobs, to florencedrunk from the same place for general support and cool one-liners, and to chidiandthegoatsyay for betaing and providing a general final check-over! No thanks at all go to Ruby, who keeps enabling me to do ridiculous things and writing stuff such as this.

In which Ace makes some regrettable word choices, and the Word Lord has entirely too much fun with the situation at hand.
3. Chapter Two: Signs of Trouble by TheBigCat [Reviews - 0] (2962 words)
Things get worse. Hex also makes some regrettable word choices, and panics a lot.
4. Chapter Three: Nowhere Now by TheBigCat [Reviews - 0] (3425 words)
The Doctor is officially not having fun anymore.
