Chapter 104: Where First?
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 092: Bonfire / Gunpowder at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor has a new companion; where should they visit first? [Eleventh Doctor, Ianto Jones.]

“Where do you want to go first?” the Doctor asks his new companion. “Anywhere in time or space, the universe is your squid!”

“Oyster, Doctor. The saying is, ‘The world is your oyster.”

“Oysters are boring. I like squid better.”

“You and Jack both.” It was muttered, so the Doctor didn’t quite catch the words.

“What was that?”

“Nothing.” Ianto smiled benignly. “How about we start close to home and work out from there? I always rather wanted to see Guy Fawkes’ attempt at blowing up the Houses of Parliament. Gunpowder, treason, and plot.”

“Ooh, good choice! Off we go!”
