Andromeda was working on a couple of relays beneath the floor of the console room that had sparked while she was in transit. She certainly wasn’t expecting any company—she hadn’t really even paid much attention to what was outside yet.

So when she heard the door open and someone thud onto the floor above her, she sat up quickly and bashed her head on one of the struts criss-crossing the space. She swore loudly and left what she was doing to climb back up onto the floor level and defend her TARDIS from this unwanted intruder.

Despite the telepathic mind-lock the ship was equipped with, it wouldn’t be the first time the ship let in a stranger. Thinking back on the times it had happened before, there was generally a good reason for the TARDIS letting them in. That didn’t make Andromeda any less defensive, though.

Or any less cross.

"OI!" she shouted at the man as soon as she spotted him. "What do you think you’re doing?"

John sighed. Really not my day. “I’m sorry!” He called out, slowly getting to his feet. “Please don’t shoot!” He held up his hands in what he hoped was a friendly, non-violent manner. Now was really not the time for him to be attacked by some Time Lady who had just happened to be in the area. Not when-

"Urgh," John groaned, leaning over the nearby railing. "Sorry about this," he  said. "I was just… stopping by… but there was this alien vase… and the guards came… And they tied me up and… stuff." He coughed violently. "Anyway, I just escaped, and I thought this was the right wardrobe, but it really wasn’t and if you just give me a couple minutes to”-he groaned-“catch my breath… I’ll be right out of your hair.”

John took half a second to gather himself a little, before slowly turning to face the Time Lady (she better have been - if some random had come and messed with his TARDIS interface he was going to be furious.He smiled at her. Yep, definitely not my TARDIS. “Sorry again about this.”

John whirled around the TARDIS console room in delight. “I haven’t visited Elsantoris in years!” He said exuberantly to no one in particular (well, not that anyone was there). He flipped a lever in the TARDIS casually, half-dancing in circles around the console. 

He still wasn’t sure he’d quite wrapped his head around the whole actually-having-his-own-TARDIS thing yet, but it definitely felt good. Right. None of that odd, uncomfortably feeling of wrongness he’d gotten in the Pete’s World. This was… liberating. He grinned, adjusting the stabilisers slightly before landing the TARDIS (gracefully, mind you - none of the Doctor’s uneven, dodgy piloting).

He spun to face the doors, heart racing with the oh-so-familiar feeling of exhilaration that always emerged when he was faced with new prospects. Grabbing his jacket, he shot out of the TARDIS, sprinting out into the open air.

Clear skies, fresh air and a bright, vibrant atmosphere. Elsantoris had not changed at all. John was practically brimming with energy. A light spring in his step, he wandered down the nearest street.

"Excuse me, could you please let me know where the nearest library is? I can’t seem to read this map properly." John smiled winningly at the person next to him. 

"Uh, sure…" Returning the smile, Skye gestured for the map, before she gently took it from him and tried to find their current location.

John put his hands in his pockets, grinning cheerily at passersby, who only glared at him or looked vaguely terrified. Oh well. He leaned over the girl’s shoulder curiously. 

"I’m John," he added. "And I promise, I can usually read maps. Sometimes. Every now and then. Okay," he amended, "maybe I just stare at them and then throw them in the trash, but still! Getting lost is always fun, isn’t it? Part of the adventure."

John stumbled into the hallway painfully. Where did I leave my TARDIS again? He lurched into the opposite wall, groaning. I’ve got to stop getting myself into these situations…

He was fairly certain he’d left his TARDIS just around the corner (well, relatively certain. Vaguely. He had a general idea). He stumbled awkwardly, grabbing a nearby bench to steady himself. Come on, they’ll be here any minute… John swung himself around the corner, praying to every entity that he knew existed (and a few that he knew didn’t) that it would be the right hallwa- yes! He could see a wardrobe. His TARDIS had disguised herself as a wardrobe. Finally. Luck - increasing. 

John grabbed the door and, with renewed strength, opened it and threw himself inside. Only to collapse onto the floor in a whirl of limbs. Ow, dammit. But still, the wardrobe was definitely bigger on the inside. My TARDIS. Good. Didn’t leap into an actual wardrobe again. He reached out for the nearest railing to pull himself up. Okay, still alive. That’s do-able. All system’s go. He glanced up, only to stop dead, eyes widening in shock.

…Okay. Not my TARDIS.

John scrutinised the girl in front of him. Nope, not familiar.

"Well…" he considered. He scratched the back of his head absently. "I’m not really sure how I got here. Or what I’m doing, to be honest. I meant to be go to the library." He paused. "Or maybe it was the sweet shop. And there was this repairs warehouse that looked kind of interesti-" He caught himself, grinning awkwardly. "Sorry, I’m rambling. John Noble," he held out a hand.

"I’d recommend the pumpkin spice. But if that’s not your type of thing, then just some regular coffee." Lily recommends to him. Since it’s early October; everything is pumpkin flavored right now.  

"Pumpkin spice…" John considers. His eyes light up. "Coffee… with pumpkin! That’s genius. That’s really, properly, brilliant. I’ll have that, please." He grins again.

GUYS COLORADO NEEDS SOME HELP
There is a bill about to be passed called Amendment 67 that is the ban on ALL abortions. THIS INCLUDES IF THE MOTHER WOULD DIE OR IF SHE WAS RAPED. THIS BILL ALSO CAN MAKE POLICE INSTIGATE ALL NON-LIVE BIRTHS (MISCARRIAGE/STILLBORN).
If you want more information, the article is [here] and they have an indigogo page [here] to help fund the stop of Amendment 67.
TUMBLR PLEASE BLOW THIS UP. PLEASE IM BEGGING YOU

holy shit what the fuck Colorado!?

(taken from the news site)
Here’s what Amendment 67 would really do:
Outlaw all abortion in Colorado, even in cases of rape and incest.
Ban some of the most common and effective forms of birth control, including the Pill and IUDs.
Make it illegal for a pregnant women with cancer to choose treatment that could save her life.
Restrict options for women wanting in vitro fertilization.
Any birth that isn’t a live-birth — so miscarriages and still births — could be deemed suspicious deaths and would be investigated by police.

what the fuck that is disgusting

Laughing a little, Lily says “Yes, this is a coffee shop and there’s tons of flavors to choose from.” She waves her hand to the board menu that is hanging on the wall. 

John pretends to scan the menu, whilst giving the entire a cafe a once-over. What is he really doing there? In truth, he has no idea, and he really does hate not knowing. And where’s his TARDIS? He gives her a sideways glance. She seems harmless. Best to just go along with it, he decides. He turns back to the girl.

"Well, what would you recommend me, Lily Smith?" John asks, beaming somewhat like a young child.

Shaking his hand, Lily says in her Boston accent “Lily Smith.” He almost does look like her dad’s 10th self, but she doesn’t think too much over it.

"Lovely to meet you Lily Smith," he smiles. She seems a little familiar… He scans her from head to toe curiously, but decides not to press the matter. “So is this a coffee shop? Can I buy coffee here? What sort of coffee do you have?”
