Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISes. Not making any money, not asserting any claims.
A/N: This is a belated birthday drabble foryamx .  (Although it's still her birthday in California, Hawaii, and parts of Mexico)


Rose shivers. "So c-cold."

Her blokes snuggle closer, shielding her from the icy draughts in the stable.

"Nobody ever escaped from the Death Maze," she murmurs.

"Guess we broke their perfect record," Jack says.

"Come mornin', we'll break more than that," the Doctor growls. The Trehinor Oligarch slaughtered countless innocents for his amusement.

"Don't think I can sleep," Rose confesses.

Jack grins. "I know how to pass the time."

"Your wrist?" Jack fractured it, distracting a charging manticore.

"Sex releases endorphins. It'll warm us up."  It does.

In the morning, the smiles of freed prisoners warm her like tropical suns.

Trust Jack to think of that! Lovely, especially as it's just gotten really cold here. I could do with a Doctor and a Jack to warm me up.

Who couldn't? *grins*

Glad you like it.

*shivers* It's cold, here, too! Can I get snuggled!

Thank you very much! I love it. So typical of Jack--libido-driven on the surface, but actually motivated by love and concern, and willing to deal with his own discomfort to make Rose feel better. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope it works as a virtual snuggle.

Jack is not just driven by love or libido; he's in a bit of pain, and does want some endorphins and distraction for himself as well as for his partners.

Aww, lovely - all of them looking out for each other and keeping each other safe. And I bet the first thing the Doctor did when they got back to the TARDIS was fix Jack's wrist.

I love this verse :)

But of course! Jack believes in sticking with one's strengths.

Now that's my kind of way to warm up.

And the endorphins . . . don't forget the endorphins. ;-)
