Please forgive me for what I’ve done to your masterpiece LMM, I just really wanted to draw a loyal as hell blue kid from a big family who always feels second best swooning over over a hotheaded, reckless orphan soldier with beautiful eyes
….but I went with Lance and Keith instead of Eliza and Alexander
Imagine a UNIT era modern day AU where the Doctor discovers Facebook:
He immediately sends friend requests to everyone at UNIT. The Brigadier doesn’t really understand social media (he only uses it to keep up with family stuff) but he’s very good at clicking the delete button. The Doctor is undeterred and continues to send him friend requests.
One day the Brigadier has to tell him exasperatedly, “Doctor, you can’t publicly list your education as ‘Time Lord Academy’.”
On another occasion he has to tell him to take down the picture he posted of the First Doctor that was captioned, “And here’s me in my younger days.” “I suppose this means you’ll want me remove that photograph taken during the Omega incident that said, ‘Hanging out with myself’,” the Doctor sighs.
The Doctor tries to sound cool on the internet but doesn’t because he keeps using memes that haven’t been invented yet. No one has any idea what he’s talking about and internet-savvy Jo is perpetually embarrassed.
The Master (under a paper-thin alias) stalks the Doctor’s page and likes all his posts in the hope that the Doctor will send him a friend request and he can have the satisfaction of declining it. The Doctor ignores him, but he does get a friend request from Sergeant Benton. Somehow the thought of declining that isn’t quite as satisfying.
“No, Doctor,” the Brigadier groans one morning when he sees his Facebook feed, “you cannot post… selfies… with a Dalek.” “Well if you don’t like mine, “ the Doctor replies, “just wait until you see Jo’s.”
I fully believe Lance has worked at a summer camp at least once (but lbr he totally worked every summer, camp is good for the soul) because you don’t jump on an obvious swear that isn’t a swear like “Quiznak” and use it for an all purpose non-swear unless you’ve worked around kids that you have to maintain a general pg rating around (you’re the“Guidance”) and ensure they have a good relaxed time with you but that will totally rat you out to their parents and get you in trouble with your boss if you use recognizable swears.
Lance uses words like “this place has gone apples and bananas”. He totally works around kids ok. What self-respecting teen who HASN’T worked at summer camp would use words like that?No one. And because you have to condition yourself to use those silly fillers instead of swears it leaks into everyday vernacular and you. just. don’t stop after summer ends and maybe you sound ridiculous but hey you aren’t scaring small children with your bad words.
Maybe I should just cave and write a summer camp au. Lifeguard!Lance, anyone?
