Morgana looked up at the stranger with her lips on a cup of coffee. “Hmm? Oh-” she puts her coffee down and says, “Uh, I’m Alice.”
[Her reply is dripping with sarcasm as she leans back in her chair.]
"Because for a moment there you seemed to forget your own name."
"I know it’s not."
[River turns the page, eyes scanning the text as she stands to walk over to the older woman’s desk - steps light, as if on kitten feet.]
[she sounds unbothered by the fact at first. But there’s a tremor in her voice that betrays how much it bothers her.]
[She’s definitely impatient now.]
"Would you like a chance to resubmit the assignment? If you require assistance, my door is always open"
[Both Psychopath & Lecturer Professor River Song was never going to by the sympathetic type towards students who weren’t up to scratch.]
Danes looked up from the newspaper he was reading (It was a bit vain, but he was reading his own articles).
He raised his eyebrow. “Y-y-yes of course it’s…it’s…it’s me. Wh-wh-who did you e-e-expect L-L-Leonardo D-Da Vinci?”
"Well seeing as Da Vinci wasn’t a wasted space I’m inclined to say yes"
[Look at him, she thinks, going through that ridiculous paper as if he belongs here.]
"And for the record, Leonardo wasn’t boring company. Unlike some people."
[At first guess she’d say Medieval Europe. Except there’s a mirror on the wall that seems to be talking. Hologram perhaps? Computer stimulation of some kind? River’s checking her vortex manipulator now. Definitely a fault.]
[She’s more then a little proud of the fact that her daughter’s had heads turning since she walked through the doors of Luna.]
”What say you Doctor Brooke Pond?"
Idris looked up from here coffee, looking up at River. Her gaze met the woman’s, grinning instantly as she did so. Oh she’d always wanted to meet River with her human body, and now she could. “You know exactly who I am, Melody.”
River’s eyes narrowed at the mention of her real name. Jaw clenched and fingers curling tightly around her tea cup the archaeologist gave a curt reply, “Afraid I don’t. ” The other woman it seemed, had the advantage. That didn’t sit well with River.
[Is any future mother-in-law happy to walk into their daughter’s house and find an altogether disappointing young man in the lounge?]
"Depends on the moment. Moments can be any period of time."
[The words in the textbook don’t make sense.
She doubts the bits on the paper do either]
[She doesn’t have the patience to deal with children. Well. Her own kin is a different matter.]
“I meant now. I’m afraid this essay wasn’t up to scratch”
"Oh? Well blimey, you don’t leave a man with much of a choice do you?"
“You’re not a man darling you came from a vat of flesh”
[It’s funny, at one point she would have said just the opposite]
This needs to be said
this is a good thing yes.
