Dawn's Place II

A derelict double decker red bus leaning against some collapsed masonry in a vaguely defined part of the Town. Outside is a very deep hole, about big enough for a person, a sign by it claims that it's a work in progress.

--------

"Thanks."

She kisses him back before heading upstairs.
Obscurejones

John walks over and kicks some dirt into the hole.
Who

And the hole...does nothing! Throw some chicken down there though and that's another story. Dawn meanwhile lies down wracking her brains for anything she can remember about temporal science.
Obscurejones

John goes into the bus and starts rummaging around for some chicken.
Who

Well he bought the groceries so there's probably some.
Obscurejones

Grabbing a cutlet he walks outside and tosses it in the hole.
Who

It disappears into the darkness of the hole and there's a sound like a wood chipper.
Obscurejones

Dawn!  What's in the hole?
Who

She walks downstairs, apparently having misplaced her skirt somewhere.

"Nothing, why?"
Obscurejones

He is notably distracted.
The thing- with the- and then- So what are you doing?
Who

"Well I was going to go to bed, then you start shouting about the hole."
Obscurejones

What hole?
Who

"The one we're standing next to...."
Obscurejones

His eyes have started to glaze over.
Huh?
Who

"Nevermind..."

She shakes her head and walks back inside.
Obscurejones

He follows.
Who

She falls down on to the cushion pile and sighs.
Obscurejones

He falls on her.
Who

"Can I help you with something?"
Obscurejones

You know, I honestly can't remember.  Was just minding my own business, feeding a hole chicken, when a foul temptress distracted me with sexy.  Now I can barely remember my name.
Who

"Foul? You might want to brace yourself then."

She tries to kiss him.
Obscurejones

He kisses her back.
Rats.  What was that name... Joan?  Am I Joan?
Who

She giggles.

"Yes, yes are."

She kisses him again.
Obscurejones

He looks down at her.
What's a curtain?
Who

"One of these Joan."

And down it goes.
Obscurejones

When it rises John is pleasantly unconscious.
Who

And Dawn is lying next to him, a contented smile on her face.
Obscurejones

A fog rolls in...
Who

"Again..."

She grabs her jacket and wanders out.
Obscurejones

A cold wind rolls through the fog and the apparition appears.
They're killing her.
Who

"Who? Killing who?"
Obscurejones

No, I don't think he's involved... The apparition seems momentarily amused.
His sons are killing his granddaughter...
Who

"His sons? Who's he?"

She's sort of got an idea already.
Obscurejones

My lover...  
The wind has begun to disperse the apparition.
Who

Well that's clinched it, she darts back into the bus and tries to wake John.
Obscurejones

John jolts awake
No Elanor not the pudding!
Who

"Get up, get whatever you need. We're going."

With that she runs back out and smack open the luggage hatch.
Obscurejones

John runs out after you in his usual uniform plus a small knapsack.
Who

She crawls out of the hatch holding an ornate seal on a large band, she's hitting the whole lot with a hammer.

"They've got Steve."
Obscurejones

What?  How?
Who

"I don't know how, but they have. I've worked us a way to get us there."
Obscurejones

Shoot.
Who

"It's simple, this..."

She holds up the seal in her hand.

"...is a storage ring, it's designed to bring things to the user. All I have to do is switch it round, which mean I get to do something I've always wanted to do."
Obscurejones

He smiles but waits so she gets to say it.
And that would be?
Who

She grins.

"I'm going to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow!"

She whacks it one more time with the hammer and in a flash they're gone.

((Dump them where ever you deem appropriate))
Obscurejones

With a small hum Dawn, John, and Steve are dumped in the bus.
Who

"We did it! And we've still got all her own organs and everything!"
Obscurejones

Wait. I'm not sure this is my spleen.
Who's gall bladder is this?
Who

"I'm going to have to check now aren't I...hearts....livers...kidney...grenspertuary gland...yeah, I'm all here."
Obscurejones

Grenspertuary?
Who

"Stops me going loopy, from cross-temporal input. Do you mind sleeping on one of the benches Steve?"
Obscurejones

Steve walks to a bench and collapses.
Who

Dawn retrieves a blanket from the pile upstairs and drapes it over her.
Obscurejones

Johns leaning against a wall a few feet away.
Awww... Maternal.
Who

"What ever do you mean?"
Obscurejones

John smiles.
Adorable how concerned you are about a bloodthirsty Dalek.
Who

"I am not concerned. It's just courtesy."
Obscurejones

I don't think I've ever seen someone hop dimensions into a castle filled with violence out of courtesy.  Maybe once.
Who

She doesn't answer and heads upstairs.
Obscurejones

He follows her up and hugs her from behind.
Thank you.
Who

"That reminds me, there's something I have to do before we go to bed."

She takes a crumpled up piece of paper and a pen out of her pocket and crosses out a few things.
Obscurejones

What's that?
Who

"Things to do before I regenerate. Meet Jabberwock, done. Reverse polarity, done. Storm castle, done."
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Who

"Nearly done now."

She throws her jacket on a bench and falls onto the cushion pile.
Obscurejones

He lies down next to her.
Sleepy.
Who

She rests an arm on his chest.

"Sleep as long as you like, you've earned it."
Obscurejones

He closes his eyes and starts to drift off.
You did all the work.........zzzzzzzz.....
Who

As does Dawn.
Obscurejones

Fog rolls in.  John and Steve sleep, exhausted.
Who

"No, I am not getting up..."

She rolls over and goes back to sleep.
Obscurejones

The fog stays.  After a few ours John rolls over.
Who

Well she's still still sleeping, outside a curious ferret is snuffling about, it can't see in the fog and stumbles into the hole, the wood chipping noise sets off again as it is devoured.
Obscurejones

The wood chipper wakes Steve.  She wnaders outside to investigate.
Who

Well it'll have stopped by the time she gets outside.
Obscurejones

She goes back inside and grabs a flashlight.  When she returns she shines it down into the hole.
Who

The light'll only illuminate about a foot of the hole, which is weird because it's much much deeper.
Obscurejones

She smiles and starts upgrading the flash light.  When she's finished she'll have an industrial strength spotlight.  She tries that.
Who

About half a foot more.
Obscurejones

She reworks it into a laser.
You get one chance, devil hole.
Who

It's a hole, what do you want from me? If she points it down it'll go about two foot before petering out.
Obscurejones

She goes back inside and grabs some rope.  She shifts the laser until it's gun shaped.  She ties the rope off on the bus and starts to climb down the hole, laser pointed downwards.
Who

I would just like to point out how monumentally a bad idea this is. As she goes down it starts getting cold, really cold, really quick.
Obscurejones

She fiddles with the laser to make it generate ambient heat.
Who

That's not going to work, if she persists she'll get this feeling like there are a million tiny creatures crawling over her skin. Please have her turn back, I don't want her to die.
Obscurejones

She turns back and climbs out of the hole.  She walks upstairs and pokes sleeping Dawn.
Who

"10 more minutes..."
Obscurejones

Steve flicks her.
Who

"Muu..."

She turns over, away from the flicking source.
Obscurejones

Steve starts drumming her fingers on Dawn's head.
Who

Well that gets her up.

"Shouldn't you be asleep?"
Obscurejones

Your hole woke me up.  What's in there?
Who

"Nothing."
Obscurejones

Well your nothing eats light.  And possibly squirrels.
Who

"Can't I deal with it later?"
Obscurejones

I have this weird feeling like things that can mimic a black hole should be dealt with Asap.
John stirs in his sleep.
Who

"Fine....honestly, kids today..."

She gets up and stretches.
Obscurejones

Steve stands up and waits.
Who

"Okay, lets go take a look, you big baby."

She heads out side.
Obscurejones

Steve points the laser into the hole and pulls the trigger.
