Doctor Who drabble: Paying the Piper

Title: Paying the Piper
Pairing: Second Doctor & Jamie MacCrimmon
Rating: All ages
Spoilers/warnings: none
Words: 100
Summary: There's an emergency -- and this time it's Jamie's special skills that are needed to save the day.

"Weel, Doctor, where are we?"

"On Earth again, Jamie. Chicago, Illinois, 25 January, 1983."

A man interrupts. "I couldn't help but notice the kilt... and the accent. By chance do you play the pipes?"


"My friend was going to pipe the haggis in at the Burns supper tonight, but he's sick. If you're available, we'd be very grateful. And of course both of you are welcome to eat and drink with us."

"Doctor, I was glad to help those good folk, and that was a very fine supper, indeed... but who's this Burns fellow they were going on about?"


Notes: I wanted to write a drabble for Burns Night. Naturally, I thought of Jamie, the most intensely Scottish character ever to appear on Doctor Who. Except... the Doctor picked Jamie up at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Robert Burns was born in 1759. For information about the traditional Burns supper, click here
