Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 483: Chicken at dw100.

Spoilers: Set shortly after The Doctor Dances.

Summary: The three travelling companions are having a night out.


It’s an outrageous taunt, but in the few weeks the three of them have been travelling together the Doctor has grown accustomed to Rose and Jack ganging up on him.

“Come on,” Rose begs. “It’s not like you’ve never danced with us before!”

“That,” the Doctor indicates the crowds of people boogieing on the dance floor, “is not ‘dancing’. You can’t call standing in one place waving your arms around ‘dancing’!”

“Didn’t I tell you?” Jack’s talking to Rose. “He’s too chicken.”

“I’ll show you chicken!”

Strutting out onto the dance floor, the Doctor strikes a dramatic disco pose.
