I'd been expecting the invitation ever since the fateful day when he took over the Earth.  His own personal shuttle escorted me to the Valiant.

"Do you know why I've sent for you?" he purred.

I tossed back my pale saffron hair, wanting to show myself unafraid, even of an omnipotent alien from another world.  "Yes," I mused. 

His dark chocolate eyes locked onto my cerulean orbs.  "Then, your new lab awaits, my dear Professor--"

I stopped him with an elegant wave of my hand.  "Although I have six advanced doctorates, I prefer informality.  Just call me Marie Suzette."



Yes, this was written for April Fool's Day.

"Dark humor"??

Other than the Master's dark chocolate yes, I defy you to find anything dark in this drabble. I double dare you!

If one of the Big Finish audios are to be believed, chocolate reverses the effects of aspirin. :)

'pale saffron hair'?

*furrows brow anxiously* I was considering "amber waves". Do you think that would have been better? And maybe the orbs should have been emerald or amethyst? (Sapphire is so over-used, don't you think?)

....weeeaaalll, you could go for "limpid azure pools, resplendent with wisdom far beyond my tender, and sumptuously-figured, years."

Yeah, that would work.
