Fic: The Flesh is Weak

Title: The Flesh is Weak
Author: Lindenharp
Genres: drabble, humor
Words: 100
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness
Series: none
Spoilers/Warnings: none
A/N: Written for Yamx, who bid on me in the Help_Haiti auction.  Her prompt was "The Doctor had never been so embarrassed in his life."  I appreciate her generous bid and donation.  Beta-reader: The always-helpful Wendymr.

"Could happen to anyone," Rose says soothingly.

"Never to me," the Doctor growls.  "Superior biology."

"The Empress was enjoying herself.  Told me she admired your stamina."

"Pity she waited until after the banquet," Jack said.  "It probably was something you ate."

Humans!  They didn't understand. If a Time Lord could regenerate from embarrassment, he would have a new face right now.

The Empress had invited him to partner her in the Grand Waltz.  The entire Court had witnessed how his body had betrayed him -- an incident made worse by robust Gallifreyan physiology.

It had been a very loud belch.

What's that all over the floor? Why, it's the Doctor's Time Lordly dignity! Hee!

And who's gonna clean up the mess, I ask you? Not himself, oh no.

*grins* Thank you.

Hee. You know he could probably let a good belch fly, too. (And if "Sick Building" is to be believed is "disgustingly eloquent." :) )

He's a Time Lord. Everything he does is superior. :-)

I bet (according to them) that they don't fart. ;) Rose and Jack would think otherwise, I'm sure. (Or: why the Doctor keeps humans around.)

Oh, they do too fart. You've never heard of Mr Tennant's pre-performance 'cleansing ritual'? ;)

Yeah, but the actor's human. ;)

It's supposed to be healthy to laugh at yourself, but I'm not sure this is what they mean. :-)

Thanks!

*sorts through box of crayons* "Danger" is mauve. "Curious" is yellow. What color is "amused"?
