Recced because: I wanted to end the week on a light note - what could be lighter than total crack? The Sonic Screwdriver is sometimes a very silly plot device, this story takes the silly up to 11.

Excerpt: [Spoiler (click to open)]“May I have your attention. Planetary death will occur at t minus three minutes. Have a nice day.” Jack made a rude gesture in the direction of the ceiling speakers as the three of them ran down the hallway, dodging the panicked Tomra heading the opposite direction. The control room itself was empty, the perpetrators having long since left the planet. Jack headed immediately for the console, fingers flying over the controls, while Rose hovered in the background.

“Doctor! They’ve blocked the override. I can’t stop it!” The Doctor was rummaging in his pockets.

“May I have your attention. Planetary death will occur at t minus 57 seconds. Have a nice day.”

“Doctor!” shouted Rose.

“Just a minute! Let’s see, yo-yo string, trolley pass, aha! Here we go.” He pulled out the sonic screwdriver, fiddling with the knobs, and then pointed it at the console.

Finally, a reminder that all of the authors I've recced this week are new to Calufrax, and most have written other stories that are well worth a look. Please show them your appreciation.
