Who

The Jewel of Krafel [Sci-Fi]

A truly remarkable planet. Unique in that it only exists in this dimension for scant weeks at a time. On the surface archaeologists have seized this rare opportunity to study the planet and perhaps clean some knowledge of its past from the ground.

Else where an incongruous blue box appears at of thin air with quite a bit of noise and fan fair.
Metakirb

Cactra, Susie and Beldama walk out.
Who

Followed by Who and Taren. Outside they're faced with gentle grassy hills stretching out as far as the eye can see one way and slowly giving way to a sandy beach the other. A small number of buildings have been erected at the foot of a nearby hill, people can clearly be seen moving around them.
Metakirb

The girls look around, walking towards the beach.
Who

"Hey, where you going? There's people that way."

He gestures in the other direction.
Metakirb

But it's a beach!
Who

"This place has no indigenous sentient life. You don't want to know what they're doing here?"
Metakirb

She shakes her head, she'd rather go to the beach.
Who

Who sighs, grumbling to himself.

"How are you my daughter? I take it everyone else wants beach too?"
Metakirb

Bel nods.

Come on. Let them have a bit of fun before pulling them into some crazy dangerous situation.
Who

"Fine...you know what? I'm going to go and find out what it is. You can all go to the beach."
Metakirb

What about you Taren?
Who

He responds without hesitation, much to Who's disappointment.

"The beach."
Metakirb

Sure you're not coming Who?
Who

"Completely, who wants to go to a beach? It's so...dull."
Metakirb

You're the only one who thinks that here.
Who

"Doesn't mean I'm not right."

And with that he turns and heads in the opposite direction.
Metakirb

Cactra heads down to the beach, followed by the girls.
Who

As does Taren, and seeing as how they're one of like 50 people on this planet they've got the beach all to themselves.
Metakirb

Cactra smiles and sits down as Susie and Bel start playing with the sand.
Who

Taren's gonna build his own sand castle is what he's going to do!
Metakirb

Susie and Bel don't appear to have a goal in mind.
Who

That's because they're girls! They're unfocused and silly! At least that's what Taren thinks anyway.
Metakirb

Well they think he's silly.
Who

I assume there's just going to be peaceful playing her until Who scurries back wearing her serious face?
Metakirb

Probably.
Who

Splendid.

"Yeah, I need a quick word with you. There's a little bit of a problem."
Metakirb

What's wrong?
Who

"I was talking to those people, I know one of them actually and well...it's something they've found."
Metakirb

What have they found?
Who

"It's probably easier if you see it yourself."
Metakirb

She nods and gets up.
Who

Who looks over at the assorted children, rather impressed by his son's ingenuity.

"Come on you lot. We're going."
Metakirb

Susie and Bel stop playing and walk over.
Who

And Taren, with everyone assembled Who starts the walk up to the buildings. Waiting for the, is a large bipedal lizard encased in a shell of green armour, also a fedora.
Metakirb

Cactra stays quiet.
Who

"Sarvak, this my wife Cactra."

"Pleasssure to meet you."

He extends one of his pincered hands in a greeting.
Metakirb

He shakes the hand.

Nice to meet you too.
Who

"I think it would be bessssst if your hatchlingssss remained here."
Metakirb

Alright, where're they going to stay?
Who

"They'll be fine here won't you? We'll only be a couple of minutes, promise."
Metakirb

Susie nods.
Who

"Back in a minute then."

Who starts walking, leading Cactra through a building and back outside, stopping at a large rectangle dug out of the ground. In the center of it is a large rusted box, flecks of blue still clinging to the outside.

"What do you make of that?"
Metakirb

Is that the Tardis?
Who

Who nods.

"Yep, they've dated it to about a thousand years ago."
Metakirb

Okay...
Who

"And this doesn't worry you, at all?"
Metakirb

A little, but it's a time machine, it could be from like fifty million years from now.
Who

"Well, either way we're going to find out what did it."
Metakirb

He nods.
Who

"So do we take them with or do the whole time travel, be back in thirty seconds shtick?"
Metakirb

Which do you think?
Who

"Hey, if I knew I wouldn't be asking would I?"
Metakirb

We'll leave them here then.
Who

Who grins, kinda hoping she'd say that.

"Right come on, I'll tell them we're just going to repark."
Metakirb

He nods.
Who

They swing past the kids, Who quickly informing them that they're going to repark before holding the door of their big blue box open for his wife.
Metakirb

He heads inside.
Who

Followed by Who.
Who

One thousand years earlier in that exact same spot a blue box appears, Who walking out of it. It's rather dark.

"You're enjoying this aren't you?"
Metakirb

Cactra follows her out, nodding.
Who

"Just cause you're taller than me doesn't mean anything. Come on, we should start looking. Something's going to happen here."
Metakirb

He nods and starts looking.
Who

Cactra might notice a set of small squat buildings in the distance, might be a little tricky though because of the lack of light.
Metakirb

What's that over there?
Who

"I don't know, lets go find out."

Who starts walking, holding a hand out to Cactra.
Metakirb

He takes it, smiling at her.
Who

"Is it just me is it cold here?"

It is a tad nippy.

"Still it's gotta be like three in the morning or something."
Metakirb

Probably.
Who

Eventually they'll reach the buildings all of them covered form top to toe in scribbles and writing. Who crouches down and leans forward, trying to get a better look.

"Reach in to my pocket and grab a torch could you?"
Metakirb

He nods and does so.
Who

With the added light Who quickly scans over the writing on the wall.

"So do you want the good news or the bad news?"
Metakirb

Let's start with the bad.
Who

"Whoever built these did so because they believed the end of the world is coming. It says here some kind of warrior or demon, some kind of thing is supposed to come and it's supposed to come tonight."
Metakirb

And the good?
Who

"Well the people who wrote all this stuff are inside so do you want to knock or should I?"
Metakirb

You.
Who

Who nods and loudly raps on the door with one hand.

"Hello? Avon representative."

The sound of activity can be heard behind the door before it slides open revealing a short stocky green humanoid with a set of claws kneeling on the ground.

"All hail the great destroyer!"

"Sorry to get your hopes up, not us."
Metakirb

Cactra remains quiet.
Who

The creature looks up at them, slightly confused if they're not the great destroyer then who the hell are they?

"So now we've gotten over that misunderstanding can we come in?"

With a nod the creature moves to let them in. Inside are many similar humanoids, all crowded round a fire or adding more scribbling to the walls.
Metakirb

Cactra's stll being quiet.
Who

"Something the matter? You haven't been this quiet since I burned that lasagne."
Metakirb

Just nothing to say.
Who

"What, seriously? We're on a planet that only exist once every 1000 years, surrounded by shaggy lobster men that think the world ends with sun up and you've got nothing?"
Metakirb

He nods.
Who

"Of course...well make yourself comfortable, I'm going to go chat with the locals."
Metakirb

He nods.
Who

One of the creatures approaches him, a lot smaller than the others.

"You're not one of us?"
Metakirb

No.
Who

"Then why are you here? Are you the monster?"
Metakirb

No, hopefully we're here to stop the monster.
Who

"Huh? You can't stop it, it's the end of the world."
Metakirb

Well we're going to try.
Who

And back Who comes.

"Well we've got till mid day until whatever happens is supposed to happen."
Metakirb

Okay.
Who

"Saw you chatting with that kid, learn anything?"
Metakirb

Well they don't appear to know what the monster that's going to end the world is...
Who

"Yeah,  the writing was kinda vague about that too...so wanna head out?"
Metakirb

Out where?
Who

"A midnight stroll across the surface of a doomed world the eve before we're meant to die?"
