Rec: Soft Jaws, Strong Bite by nonelvis

Hi, I'm lost_spook and I'll be your reccer for this week! I enjoy all eras, so hopefully there'll be something for everyone along the way...

Story: Soft Jaws, Strong Bite
Author: nonelvis
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2141
Author's Summary: A brief and heartwarming story about the Doctor, Romana, space pirates, and the universe's greatest children's show about prehistoric reptile cyborgs.
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor/Romana II
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It has Twelve, Romana and some space pirates? What more do you want in a fic? And yes, it is every bit as much fun as that sounds, particularly all the Doctor-Romana banter. It’s sweet, smart and silly in all the right ways - very like our show (and its hero).

Midway through a ten-minute fuzz-guitar solo in "Incy-Wincy Spider," the Doctor's amp began to crackle. He jiggled the plug. That was usually enough to fix it.

The amp also began to talk. That was a bit new.

"Doc-" skreeessskkkkkhhhh "Doc-" skskkkkkkkkssss "Ro" skrreeeeessssh

He stopped playing and adjusted the treble and volume. More fuzzy screeches. He adjusted the bass. Fuzzy screeches, but with somewhat more depth. He whipped out the sonic sunglasses and stared very pointedly at the amp. It ignored him.

Finally, he gave it a good, solid thump.

"Doctor, it's Romana," said a crackling voice from the amp. "I am trapped at dimensional coordinates 4-9-12, 38-23 by 3-35. Come quickly if you can. This message will now repeat. Doctor, it's Romana. I am trapped at –"

He had the coordinates set before the message finished repeating.
