Story: The Waiting is the Hardest Part
Author: scarlettgirl
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1181
Author's Summary: Rory and Martha are trapped. It's not nearly as much fun as you'd think.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Rory Williams, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: None
Recced because: Era crossovers are always neat, and Rory and Martha have so much in common both professionally and in terms of their personalities that it's a lot of fun to see them interact. Scarlettgirl does a great job with the voices and the little details that really sell the story--Rory is very kind but also worried and a bit sarcastic and Martha always tries to stay reassuring and calm under pressure. The story hits all the right notes of professionalism, as Rory and Martha are sort of accidental field medics at a school they are protecting, and they do a wonderful job. Also? It's really funny.

“When we get out of here I am never, ever again in my lifetime, drinking Fruit Slurpers. They are dead to me.” He sucked on the juice pouch with a scowl.

“I dunno,” Martha said, contemplating the bright green pouch. “I think I’m becoming rather fond of the apple. They’re nice.”

Rory leaned over and lifted Martha’s eyelid.

“And just what are you doing, Mr. Williams?”

“That’s Junior Charge Nurse Williams, and I’m checking you for symptoms of the concussion you obviously have.”
