    Thanks.

    Title: Drive In
    Fandom: James Bond


    Bond spun the Jaguar around to face the building. He paused for the briefest of moments as he took note of where people, especially security guards, were in the spacious lobby. And then he shifted gears and stepped hard on the accelerator.

    The car shot forward; Bond changed gear twice more. He was pushing ninety when it hit the kerb and launched up into the air. The Jag was still several feet off the ground as it crashed through the giant glass facade. Tyres touched down on linoleum less than a second before the car ploughed into the security desk.

    Title: Epoch Fail
    Fandom: Back to the Future


    "Jules, are we in trouble?" Verne asked. About a hundred yards behind them, the front end of the engine finally snapped off and sank into the mud.

    His brother was too busy staring up at the sky to answer at first. Verne followed his gaze and gasped in horror. "We just might be," Jules said.

    "I thought Dad's time machines couldn't travel to alien worlds."

    "They can't," answered Jules.

    "So how long ago," Verne wondered, "did the Earth have two moons?"

    "Or how far into the future will it get a second one?"

    Together, they decided, "We're definitely in trouble."

    Title: The Casualties of War
    Fandom: Doctor Who
    Doctor: War


    The Doctor slammed the TARDIS door control down and hit the dematerialisation switch. His gaze was fixed on the monitor image of the planet outside. As he watched, the world he'd fought so hard to save was burned to a cinder.

    "Off to the next battle, Doctor?"

    He turned to the man who'd spoken. There were only three left, three soldiers of Gallifrey remaining of the twenty he'd been drafted into commanding.

    "Companions," he muttered, but they just looked confused. "I used to have companions, but now what do I have instead? Troops. I'm tired. I need to rest first."

    Title: Swirling Blue Orb
    Fandom: Doctor Who
    Doctor: Sixth


    Mel stared deeply into the swirling blue orb. "Doctor," she asked, "what is this thing?"

    "I should have thought that was obvious!" he snapped.

    She shrugged. "Not to me."

    He stepped up beside her and peered into it himself. "Well, what does it look like?"

    "A swirling blue orb."

    "Exactly!" he declared.

    She turned away from the orb for the first time and look right at the Doctor. For a brief moment, a swirling blue afterimage hovered in front of him. "I was hoping," she said, "for a more specific answer."

    "Ah, yes, well, what's wrong with 'swirling blue orb'?"

    Swirling blue orb. [face_laugh] This last one was great for a giggle. [face_love]

    And I particularly liked the glimpse into the War Doctor's mind before this one. It was chilling, the difference between companions and soldiers. :(

    Thanks. I wanted to write for the War Doctor - I've written for all the others often enough - and one of the first questions was what kind of companion he would've had. You see what I realized.

    Title: False Flag
    Fandom: Archer


    Lana was almost out of the compound when she realized Sterling wasn't there. She found him back inside, standing over several bodies. "What are you doing?" she demanded.

    "The mission, duh. What are you doing?"

    "The terrorists we're supposed to frame for attacking this place," she explained, "really are attacking this place. Now let's go!"

    "Can I just plant a couple pieces of evidence first?" he asked.


    * * *

    "You idiot!" screamed Malory. "Because the evidence you planted got debunked, the world now thinks the real terrorist attack was faked!"

    Sterling wondered, "Is that a good thing or a bad thing?"

    "Bad!"

    There should be a couple others earlier in the thread.

    Title: Unstuck in Time
    Fandom: Lost / [hl=black]Babylon 5[/hl]


    "Hey, genius," Sawyer asked, "any idea when we are now?"

    Daniel Faraday studied the trees around them for a long moment before shrugging. "The past? The future? We could be months or years away from our own time. Decades, even. Centuries."

    "We get it!" snapped Miles.

    "This is not good," a strange voice tutted. Everyone turned, weapons ready, as a strange creature staggered from the jungle. He made clicking noises and stared at his feet. "You are unstuck! Unstuck in time!" He looked up, noticing the guns for the first time. "Of course. Everyone always wants to shoot poor Zathras."

    "What were we thinking?" shouted Jeff. He pulled into the nearly empty parking lot and found a space right up front.

    Abed answered, "We were saving a life. We were doing a good thing." He shook Troy awake.

    "Granted. But we should've realized what we could be doing," Jeff continued, "to those of us who've battled addictions: alcohol; amphetamines; whatever Britta's taken." The comic shop's staff let them in and led them to a back room. "Shirley, it's three in the morning! Put the dice down and step away from the Dungeons and Dragons!" Jeff commanded. "Annie, Britta, you too.'
