Fic: Regeneration

Title: Regeneration
Rating: G
Characters:
Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler
Genre: drabble
Spoilers: none
Summary: Rose has a gift for the Doctor.
Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.

A/N: A quick, silly drabble -- a get-well gift for wendymr, with the hope that it will amuse her. 100 words according to MS Word.


The Doctor looks up as Rose enters the control room, plastic bag in one hand, tea in the other.  "Mornin', sleepyhead.  What's that?"

"Ummm... don't you get tired of wearing the same thing every day?"

"Not a fashion model, me.  Change my jumper, don't I?"

"All those dark colours -- might as well be the same one.  So... I knit you a new one.  Something brighter."

"You knit?"

"Yeah.  Mickey's gran taught me."

"You knit me a jumper.  Huh.  Where'd you get the wool?"

"In the Wardrobe, sorta.  There was this really long scarf, too long for anyone to wear--"

Nice! I love it! And bonus points for adding in knitting!

Thanks. I don't knit, myself. My mom does. My grandmother did. She tried to teach me crochet, even putting the hook in her left hand. No luck. She was more successful with needlepoint, and I picked up embroidery on my own. But I just don't have the knitting/crochet chromosome.

I can't crochet or embroider worth a damn. Did your mom and grandmother knit English (yarn in the right hand). might have an easier time learning continental knitting (yarn in the left), if you're a lefty. eveanhei knits backwards as a lefty, and it works (beautifully) for her.

Oh I dunno. He unraveled the burgundy one himself as soon as he regenerated, and that sweater Tegan wears in A.D. 1215 has a familiar color scheme.

My "scarfman" nickname actually predates my Doctor Who fandom. Really.

He's been known to do all sorts of odd things while in a post-regeneration crisis. Besides, Nine might be more sentimental than Five.

Thanks. Of course, the Doctor may not think it's cute. ;-)

Thanks. The title was the hardest part, and suddenly there was a giant lightbulb above my head, just like in the cartoons.

Caught this on whofic first, and was amused and very gratified - thank you! :) Definitely in need of some cheer today too after my follow-up visit to the surgeon. One word: OW!.

I think this Doctor needs a colourful jumper far more than he needs a scarf, so good for Rose :)

Glad you liked it.

I agree, but I'm not quite sure he'd see it that way. :-)

Hehehe. Having finished one not so long ago myself, I'm thinking Rose might be in danger of regenerating if Madame Nostradamus ever finds out... ;)
