Who: Jenny, Prince Thomas, Princess Cimorene, Gaius du Lac and Melora Hawke. Possible guest appearance by the Eleventh Doctor, depending on how much trouble they get into. Where: Califrainaia, the dragon planet When: Dec 29. Before New Years! Warnings: Nah, nothing!
This ride seemed to be a bit longer than most Jenny had taken in the TARDIS. It was possible the planet was a good deal further away. Or, the Doctor might have been taking the scenic route in order to have more time to observe Jenny interacting with this group of teenagers she'd brought on board his TARDIS.
The princess was still dressed in clothes that look like they'd come out of a fairytale--though her dress was a sensible cotton rather than satins and silks. Still, it was a good bit fancier than jeans. She sat in one of the chairs Jenny had brought out, with a book on her lap. She glanced over at Thomas. "Are you going to spend the whole ride glaring and grumbling about how horrible I am for judging you based on my past experience with princes," Past experiences he didn't know anything about, mind, "Or are you going to try to prove me wrong?" At least that would be something useful.
There was some obvious tension between the royalty, but the Time Lords seemed to be staying out of it. The wizards weren't much help either, though Gaius had tried taking each of them aside and explaining the other's viewpoint.
"How about this?" Jenny asked, rolling a large, circular shield into the room and over to Melora and Gaius. They were trying to find items to test fireproofing spells on. Cimorene's required ingredients they didn't have, and it was meant for people. A shield couldn't repeat the spell couplets.
