It Seemed Like A Good Idea (in honor of "The God Complex" of Doctor Who)
September 18, 2011 flash fictionThis is a repost, folks, but it seemed Oh So Appropriate after this week's Doctor Who episode.
And yes, it's spoiler-free. I think this last episode worked quite well, even the bits that seemed to come out of left field. I've got some bets as to what's coming up next week, and I'll be quite interested to see if I'm right.
I stop typing when Bob's fetid breath flows into my cubicle. "Write the good idea episode."
"Write where his companion says it seemed like a good idea to gallavant across time and space in a telephone booth - but they miss their regular boring day job and regular boring life."
Bob nods. "There's discontent. People are starting to want more from their lives. Time for their hero to say that regular boring lives are... important."
"Time for him to lie again."
"On whose authority?"
A pepperpot's shadow slides past my door.
"The highest authority. The highest."
