((Got it.))
Tue May 19, 2015 22:42

((The Reader was titchy during the Time War. She's currently only about 150 years old. I'm not sure how much it'll ever come up, but she's actually missing chunks of the knowledge that people like just about every other Gallifreyan Time Lord in HQ possess--she didn't actually graduate.))

((I do wonder, however, just how the Reader will manage to get across that she was a civilian--and how long it'll take her to do that. It should be interesting to write!))

((But oh, she won't take too well to the disappointed speech at first. Not when she thought she'd finally met a genuinely helpful Time Lord who's not on the Council and doesn't irritate her in any way. You could say it'll be...a disappointment. :) ~DF))

    (( first, but if she explain her position he'll realize that he's being harsh. The Guardsman was fresh out of the Academy when the war hit-- he'd understand if a student wanted off the planet.... more

      • ((Just have her blurt out...))SeaTurtle, Tue May 19 22:47
        ((...something along the lines of "But I was at the Academy!" The Guardsman will then ask for her age and connect the dots. Boom, problem solved!))
        • ((Though she did stay for a bit. It could definitely work if he says something like 'What sort of Time Lord runs away instead of fighting when they hear that Gallifrey's going to war?' whereupon she... more

            ((Because if not, it should. I would read the heck outta that! And yes. Yes they are.))
            • ((Well, I'm definitely in.))DawnFire, Tue May 19 23:21
              ((Like I've been saying, it sounds like fun. And I'm just about always up for writing Time Lords being ridiculous(ly dramatic). Thoughts, O French-speaking compatriot of mine? Other than that it's... more

                ((I just have a rather busy schedule as of late-- looking for a job and all that. Perhaps we could open up a shared GDoc and each add a part when we have time-- build it up paragraph by paragraph?... more

                  ((Ooh, that sounds great. I think it'd work quite well. I'll see about emailing you when I get home and can do it on a laptop. Time Lord high school drama. Perfect description. Let's see, we'll have... more

                    ((When you said "Time Lord high school drama", my brain went "high school AU what??" ))

                        ((With the Notary as the Alpha Bitch, the Librarian as the Haughty Nerd, the Guardsman as That Nice Guy on the football team, Rina as the awkward social outcast, and the Reader as... I dunno?))
                        • ((You said "Nice Guy"...))SeaTurtle, Wed May 20 14:24
                          ((...and suddenly the Guardsman grew a neckbeard and a fedora. This is your fault, Iximaz.))

                                ((Alright, gotcha. ...the mental image of everyone in a high school AU won't stop. Now I'm imagining them all as teenagers. :/ ))

                                  ((...the loner, I think. The one who barely talks to people unless forced, and can be kind of snappish. Glares at everyone, some days. And either hates or is completely ignored by the Notary?... more
