Title: Birthday
Author: Lindenharp
Genre: Fluff
Words: 100
Rating: PG
A/N: A drabble fordark_aegis , on the occasion of her birthday.  May there be many more, each happier than the ones that went before.

"Doctor, how do they celebrate birthdays in the 51st Century?"
 
"Dunno.  Foolish human custom."
 
"He's your partner, too.  Or-- Morning, Jack!"
 
"Morning, beautiful.  Doctor, need any help?"
 
"Nah.  We're materialisin' on Alzori.  Agri-colony."
 
 
*****
 
 
"Blimey!  Never saw a farm with chandeliers."
 
"This is the Topkapi Resort!  The most luxurious--"
 
"Oi!  Doctor, party of three?"
 
"Yes, Effendi. The Sultan Suite awaits."

"Stop gawpin', Captain.  Rose has sentimental notions about birthdays."
 
"I didn't bring fancy clothes."
 
"We won't need any.  Private suite.  Bath's in the walled garden.  Nice view of moonset."
 
"Doctor, Rose -- I think I'll find other heavenly bodies to admire..."

Awww! He's such a fake, isn't he? Pretending to be all gruff and uninterested, and all the time he's arranged to celebrate Jack's birthday in style :)

Brilliant! :)

*grins* Thanks. The Oncoming Storm has hearts of marshmallow where certain people are concerned.

Not his idea of a good time, but he's gotta keep those primitive humans amused... ;-)

He likes to pretend he's not a sweetie, but he is. Lovely! All-dialogue fics are hard to pull off, especially with more than two people. You made everyone's voices so distinctive it was no problem to follow along. Well done!

Thank you. I'm glad it worked. Dialogue is a bit easier with these characters than some others because they have such distinctive voices, and use language differently.

Aww, this was so cute, particularly the last line. You know Jack's going to make good use of that bath!

Wrong icon, I meant to use this one *points up*

And a very nice icon it is, too.

The bath, the bed, the divan, the rug in front of the fireplace...

Thanks. It's a very old joke, but I couldn't resist.

It is an old joke, and corny. It's also just the kind of thing that pre-Parting of the Ways Jack would say :)

I thought he might. :-)

Oh I bet he will find other bodies to admire... ;)

And be admired by in return. ;-)
