(I love how I can interpret the ship in question to be all of UNIT.)
(I used the Doctor’s and the Master’s Academy-era nicknames; it felt appropriate.)
It was the first day of school.
Theta plonked himself down on the wooden bench opposite Jo, who was frowning at her lunch.
“You look the same way I feel,” Jo said.
Theta sighed. “You first.” He started taking out his lunch from his bag.
“Well, remember the cheerleader I told you about?”
“Yes. Well, I just found out she’s in my physics class. And at first I was excited, because maybe I can introduce myself to her, and we can be friends! But the more I thought about it, the more I realised she might not like me. I hear she’s very smart.”
“Oh, Jo. Of course she’ll like you! I’m very smart, and I like you!”
Jo laughed. “Yeah, but you’re not cool.”
Theta scoffed at her.
She chuckled. “Okay, your turn.”
“There’s a new student. His name is Koschei. He’s been here one day, and he’s already made friends with that gang of troublemakers. I probably shouldn’t be surprised. He’s already got the all-black dress code down pat.”
“Black hoody, black skinny jeans?”
“Yes, exactly, that abhorrent ensemble.”
“Says the person wearing velvet.”
“I’m going to ignore that.”
“Well, why does he bother you?”
“I don’t know… I just don’t like troublemakers.”
