FIC: The Waitress's Tale (Valiant Tales)

Title: The Waitress's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.
Rating: G
Characters:
The Master (Simm), other characters
Genre: drabble
Spoilers: Minor spoilers for The Sound of Drums and Last of the Time Lords.
Summary: A series of drabbles about the people who lived, worked, and suffered on the Valiant during the Year That Never Was. 100 words according to MS Word.
Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.

A/N: I've figured out that one of the reason I write these things is to have the satisfaction of finishing something while I'm struggling with a WIP.  Chapter 11 of ATKH is coming along slowly.  Meanwhile... have a canape.

'Cept for the aliens, it was like any VIP party.  Pass the canapés, pour the champagne.  I've served Cristal and lobster raviolis to billionaires.  I've been puked on by a Duchess.  Had £5 stuffed down my shirt by an aging rocker in £300 shoes.  It's what "the help" gets paid for, right?

I'm still a waitress, serving the Master's special guests.  I recognize some of them.  Sometimes the champagne is vinegar and bicarb.  Sometimes the paté is cat food with chilli sauce.  They always thank me politely.  I don't get paid now, but I enjoy my work a lot more.

Synchronicity and serendipity... two of the most powerful forces in the Universe. :-)
