Notes: This is a response to a @timepetalsprompts weekly prompt from a long time ago, Classic Films AU.
Hope it was worth the wait. Again, thank you so much for all the comments and reblogs. Y'all make posting this bit by bit a ton of fun.
Note that their academic schedule is different from ours. And, we meet the infamous Rani. Her character’s slightly different from Classic Who.
Unbeta’d, so please forgive any mistakes.
A few days later, Theta walked up to a set of clinical, white double doors. He leaned towards the retina scanner. He walked forward and, to his surprisde, banged into the hard surface of an unopened door. The console gave him a cheeky negative beep. He tried scanning his retina again with the same result. He pressed a button on the panel. “Ushas, I need access to the lab, please.”
“What do you want, Theta?”
“I need you for a project.”
“That’s not very nice. You only come to see me when you need me for something, which happens to be never, until now.”
“That’s because you’re insane, and we both know it. You’ll like this project, though, I promise.”
“What does it entail?”
“You get to stick it to the Council, especially Socra. It hasn’t been sanctioned by them.”
“Because I’m clever.”
“What else does it entail?”
“You get to be a genius.”
“I already am. You’re going to have to think of something more enticing than that.”
