Reced because: Double the Doctors, double the fun! Just the premise alone should send you hurrying off to read this: two Doctors and their Companions at a Star Trek convention. Rose Tyler and the Tenth Doctor are looking for an alien prince who’s on an unauthorized visit to Earth. While there, they meet the Seventh Doctor and Ace, who are searching for some intergalactic arms dealers. Finding a couple of real aliens in a hotel full of fake ones is challenging enough, but then things become really complicated. Both Classic and New Who fans will find much to enjoy in this hilarious romp.
Ace was, indeed, waiting by the elevators. Well, if you called holding a fourteen year old kid in a head-lock waiting. "And don't you dare touch anyone else without permission for the rest of your life, or I will hunt you down, got it?" she shouted as they approached.
"Ace!" Seven exclaimed. "Let him go."
"Not 'til he says it!" she answered, then looked down at her prisoner. "You got me, sunshine?"
The kid gasped out a quick, frantic apology. Ace let him go with a shove away from them and shook her head. "Rotten brat," she grumbled as the kid fled back toward the convention hall at top speed.
"What was that about?" the Doctor asked mildly, in the face of Seven's stern disapproval.
Ace turned her head away and ignored them both as the elevator arrived. She stepped in, punched for the fourteenth floor, and handed Rose a little plastic key.
Rose took it and, as soon as the doors opened again, bounced off down the hall. Ace tore after her, obviously just for the thrill of the chase. "They seem to be getting along well," Seven observed mildly.
"And you have no idea how terrified I am," he replied.
