Much love to Fleurdetemps for kicking my butt into a self-editing frenzy and making me cut a whole lot of waffle (granted, I almost immediately replaced the deleted waffle with new waffle... mmm... waffle). I started writing this ages back, but decided that I would only post it once it was finished, done, complete. So enjoy! (hopefully)

In which Romana (aided by K-9 the wonder dog) saves the Doctor's butt!

This chapter took simply f-o-r-e-v-e-r to write and I'm still not half-happy with it. Four's voice is HARD which is probably why he hasn't made many appearances in this story. There are plenty of episode references in here (electronic cookies to the person who catches them all), and plenty of quotes, though I think it's made obvious where they come from in the text.

In which the TARDIS is very very clever. Don't you love the TARDIS? She's the best sentient, bigger-on-the-inside, time travelling police public call box in the universe! And as far as fictional space ships go, she totally whoops the Enterprise's ass.

At long last I post more. Sorry about the wait guys. The excerpt Romana reads is from The Pasture by Robert Frost, which just happens to be the first poem in the Frost book I have. Her second poem is (I hope) pure invention, though I'm sure I've probably unconsiously stolen most of it from elsewhere. And a warning, for the faint of heart, Four goes a bit nuts in this chapter. I just love evil Four, don't you?

Un-beta'd and probably awful *grins sheepishly* but it's finished ya know? Well, last chapter anyway, there's also the epilogue whish *is* beta'd by a weird time fluke thing.

This ending is a bit different, hopefully it goes over well. Thanks: to ann_blue for her saint-like patience with both me and this story. If it weren't for her this last bit would have been lost to the back streets of cyberland forever, to Fleurdetemps who got the ball rolling, and to everyone who has stuck with this story to the end. YOU ALL ROCK!!!
