Author's Summary: The Doctor cooks for Amy and Rory. (Spoilers for Vampires of Venice.)
Characters/Pairings: Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Eleventh Doctor
Recced because: There are two elements to this story, each of them interesting in their own right, but together they make a nice contrast. There's Rory's worry about how Amy feels about him and how she feels about the Doctor, and then there's the humour of the Doctor cooking. Rory is great in this, dealing with the madness around him.
The Doctor picked up a many-jointed thing from the island top and waved it around. “I found this in a toolbox, that Venusian ladle —” he pointed at something spherical that hardly resembled a utensil at all, let alone a ladle “— in the left pocket of a jacket I’m never even looking at again… and the TARDIS sprouted those I just couldn’t find.”
Rory nodded as if it all made perfect sense. Time machines sprouting things hadn’t been mentioned even in a footnote anywhere in the literature he had ploughed through, but he had decided to just take the Doctor’s word regarding the TARDIS.
“Then I chose the wrong size pot — four times — and then I fried — something — that shouldn’t have been fried and it exploded a little.”
