1. The Parallels [Reviews - 0] (4782 words)
Please forgive me, but this is not the Doctor and Rose's wedding. Apparently, I still had one more pre-wedding story in me and besides, tomorrow's my birthday and I really wanted to celebrate it with Christmas in this 'verse. And I missed St. Bob. :)

I would HIGHLY recommend reading Have Yourself A Merry Parallelly Little Christmas if you want to understand all the St. Bob references (and hopefully funny in jokes) in this story and Lad's Night Out is where the Brig and Sarah Jane are introduced and you learn about Sarah Jane's doomed marriage.

As a side note, my husband told me that Jon Pertwee, the actor who portrayed the Third Doctor, bought Katy Manning, who portrayed his companion Jo Grant, all of the antique rings that she wore at flea markets.
Dosh is British slang for money, skiving is slang for ditching (like ditching school) and peckish is for hungry.

A HUGE shout out to Kelkat9 and to her story, "Do Not Sonic The Action Figures". It is because of her generosity that I am able to use her idea regarding the plastic of Pete's World being a cousin to the Nestene Conscious.

I also mentioned various holidays celebrated around Christmas time, I'm sorry if I missed any and I've tried my best to be as accurate as I could with the ones that I did. It's just that I can totally see the Doctor, especially this one, saying, "Why celebrate just one when you can celebrate them all?" :)

There are mentions of the Blitz in this chapter and the next two chapters. I didn't know much about it until I began researching it and asked my husband what he knew of it. The more I read and heard about it…well, it truly awes me at what strength and spirit the British have in the face of tragedy and what they have had to endure. I only note this as I would not want anyone from the United Kingdom to think that it was my intention to offend by including it in a story that's based mainly in humor.

If you don't remember or didn't read Have Yourself a Merry Parallelly Little Christmas, the character of the Grouse dresses like a butler. I have always envisioned his outfit being similar to Turlough's schoolboy uniform. Also, Quality Streets, Marathon bars and Maltesers are all British candy. For Americans, the Marathon bar is like our Snickers and Maltesers are like Whoppers malt balls.

Yobbo is British slang for an uncouth or thuggish working-class person. I obtained the definition from Wikipedia and togs is British slang for clothes in general.
