A/N: A drabble for kensieg on her birthday. I hope it was a happy one.


"Doctor, when's your birthday?"

"Told you before, Rose, I don't--" Her reproachful eyes pierce his hearts. "Fifeenth Trekhet."

"When?"

"Alien, me -- remember? Eleventh month of the year on my planet."

"Oooh!" She jabs at the newspaper. "That makes you a Scorpio!"

"Astrology? That rubbish is straight out of the Middle Ages! Thought you had more sense."

"'Scorpios are determined, forceful individuals." she reads. "'They thirst for knowledge, but are secretive, and need to be in control...'"

"That fits," Jack says, grinning.

"'Their intense, magnetic sensuality makes them irresistible--'"

"'Course, primitive superstitions often have a core of truth in 'em..."

Nice to know the Doctor's ego hasn't diminished over the centuries. ;)

Really? I used to collect Scorpios (my husband and two of my best friends at college). They make challenging but worthwhile pets. *grins and runs like hell*

Yeah. Now that I think of it, Nine would make a convincing Scorpio...

It's hard to be modest when you're an utterly fantastic genius. :-)

I rarely try to figure out usernames. The ones that aren't immediately obvious are often private jokes, references to some other fandom, or a combination of unrelated terms.

First season Rose called him gay

When did she do that? In "The Doctor Dances" she implied that he might be asexual, but that's rather different.
