Ace is humming happily in her TARDIS' control room, a mug of cocoa steaming on a flat bit of paneling, as she decides where they're off to next. Sure, it's fantastic traveling around with her husband.

But sometimes?

There's a need for sibling time.

And at least at this point Raven is not burying her in cookies?

Though he does have his feet propped up on what may be a very useful piece of equipment.

Go figure.

"So, what shall it be?" Ace asks as she idly tightens up their flight path. "Breakfast at some high-end bistro? A little bit of daring-do? Hunting on the sun-soaked slopes of the Martharis range?" Sibling time is, after all, very rarely boring. And usually in one of those times, one of them is unconscious.

"I know a place that makes these great little berry an' dark chocolate pastries..."

Raven screws up his face in intense thought.

Or something.

"Possibly chocolate while hunting, yes?"

It gives them the best of both worlds!

"I like the way y'think." She grins crookedly as she shoves his feet off of the temporal brake. "So, little bistro first, then..."

Then the whole world (or at least the TARDIS) lurches to the left, then tilts and slams to the right, like a giant intergalactic junkyard dog has it between its jaws and is shaking it hard.

Raven slips from his rather precarious perch and falls hard to the floor.

He does not appear to notice, rolling to his feet and moving toward Ace a moment later.

Or maybe he is just moving out of the way.

"This, I think, is not so much a sign."

At least it had better not be.

Ace rather unceremoniously uses him as a foothold on her quest to launch back up towards the controls, her footing precarious in this rattling roller-coaster.
"We must've just hit a rough patch, s'alright, s'far the..." Her hopeful (if somewhat strained) prattle is cut short by a new sound that cuts through the creak and groan of strained systems.

The doleful ringing of the cloister bell, deep within the ship.

"That, I think, is a sign, yes?"

He is waiting on instructions.

Piloting is not in his skill set.

Neither is much to do with electricity that does not come from storms, all told.

Ace yelps as one of the boards sparks under the strain, then reaches under the console to unlatch the end of a safety rope, which she tosses to her brother.

"Hang on! I'm goin' t'try t'send us back t'Milliways, last time this happened..." Ace calls, but then the ship rocks again, and she's flipped off her feet once more. The only thing that keeps her crashing into the far wall is that same rope, which she has caught in a death-grip.

That bell hasn't stopped.

"I am, I think, not so sure I will be effective."

Raven and the TARDIS can coexist, but --

There are ways in which they do not play well together.

He does, however, stretch out a leg in case Ace needs something else to climb back up on.

Dangling from protruding ductwork makes it less difficult than it might be, otherwise.

Her knuckles are bleeding, she notes with distant annoyance. For some reason, no matter how many times she gets into trouble, she always rucks her knuckles against something. It's just as well they heal, otherwise they'd be a scarred mess.

During this annoyed musing, she has vaulted towards the controls again, making use of Raven's leg as she did so. It doesn't do her much good though - she gets a handful of seconds to try and wrestle the ship back on-course, before the ship jerks, one last time, in the opposite direction. Ace goes flying, and the ship suddenly stops cold, lit only by dim green emergency lighting.

Raven sneezes.

Loudly.

At least there is a light now besides the dim green?

Now all he has to do is find a way to stand.







This may take a while.

Ace could've done without sparkles all over her TARDIS, but at the moment, she's not much in a position to complain.

Slowly she unfolds herself, wincing as various bits reset themselves. No matter how many times that happens, it's still deeply unpleasant. Once she feels a little more whole (there's blood, in her hair. Ace feels this isn't fair) she scrambles, almost crablike, across the bent and buckled floor to her brother.

"I am not so much broken."

He makes a face at her -- hey, he saw the reassembly. It is not a thing he forgets.

"And you are mostly fixed. But the TARDIS?"

Ace makes a face back - it's not like she plans to do these things. They just happen. "She's... A'right. Bitchin' at me, at least." Ace sighs, rubbing at her right temple absently. "S'mostly cosmetic damage. Y'sure y'a'right?"

"Mostly I am lying."

Raven punctuates that with a snort.

That is also a lie.

"You are for knowing when we are?"

Ace gives him a sharp look, but when she cannot see any obvious injuries she pushes (slowly) to her feet and limps over to the dark control boards.

"Well, s'far as I can tell..." She muses, poking at unresponsive buttons. "We're here. Ta da!"

"That is not so much helpful."

He only sounds a little whiny. Around the edges.

"Well, neither is this board. We're goin' t'have t'move to the secondary console room." Ace retorts, rolling her eyes at him.

EX-TER-MI-NATE!

Ace suddenly tenses, all jangling nerves.

Raven's head comes up, black eyes gone bright and hard.

"That, perhaps, is not so good."

Understatement.

She should let it go. Her brother's here. They should patch up and go back to Milliways. This will catch her eventually, there's no call to go rushing into it headlong.

There's a muffled sound outside, and Ace tenses even further.

Firing.

Screaming.

She should go.





She doesn't look at Raven as she heads over to where she stashes her nitro.

Since he is already tugging various tangles of thread out of his pocket, he does not see her heading over toward the nitro.

Of course, he does not need to see her to know it is happening.

They are both very predictable.

On occasion.

"Y'should stay here, with the ship. I won't be but a moment..." Ace rambles as she pulls out her rucksack, stuffing her home-made entropy-encouragers inside.

Raven rolls his eyes.

Theatrically.

"That, I think, is not so much likely."

She will just have to deal.

Ace spares her brother a glance over her shoulder, frowning in his direction.
"Don't be silly." She asks the impossible, "I do have it in me t'be quick, y'know."

It's possible she's purposefully misunderstanding, here.

"Not with this, perhaps."

Skeptical is not his middle name.

But if he had one, maybe it would be.
