Rec: Time To Get Away by Netgirl_y2k

Story: Time to Get Away
Author: netgirl_y2k
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2435
Author's summary: In which there are flesh eating plants, drunken one night stands and Donna discovers that there are more mad time travellers calling themselves the Doctor than she's really comfortable with.
Characters: Donna Noble, Five, Tegan, Turlough. (Donna/Tegan but anything explicit goes on off-camera, as it were)
Warnings: none given

Recced because: Written way back in July of 2007 for the dw_femslash ficathon on lj. I can't even remember if we knew Donna was going to be the next companion by then; it was only 2 weeks or so after Last of the Time Lords aired. All we'd seen of Donna was the Runaway Bride, but thankfully, that was plenty of material to go on for those of us who already loved her :) netgirl_y2k hits the ground running with this story and it just. gets. funnier. Seriously, I had a hard time picking an excerpt because I wanted to quote the whole thing. Its tone reads like crack-fic but the fact of the matter is, it's actually scarily plausible. Even if you don't usually go for femslash, read this story, especially if you need a laugh (it's totally worth it just for the description of the TARDIS noise at the end). And the ending itself is great fun and just the slightest bit prescient for series four.


"You've met the Doctor before?" Turlough prompted.

"Never seen him before in my life, although last Christmas I did meet this weird bloke who called himself the Doctor. He nearly got me eaten by a giant spider."

"Well, that certainly sounds like the Doctor," Turlough concluded.

"It wasn't a tall bloke wearing a twelve foot scarf, was it?" Tegan asked.

Oh, God, how many of these Doctors were there. "No, he looked like..." Donna thought about the best way to describe the Doctor. "Imagine a really good looking weasel in a suit."
