Title: Trip the Chocolate Fantastic
Pairing/Characters: Nine, Rose, Jack
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Rose, The Empty Child, The Doctor Dances
Summary: Prompt - Taste
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

"Did you know..." The Doctor sat back in his chair as Rose and Jack finished off their dessert, the remains of their feast littering the table, "that Earth is the only planet in the universe that has chocolate?"

"You're joking!" Rose gazed at him, stunned, her spoonful of chocolate mousse hovering midway to her mouth. "How can people live without chocolate?"

"Well, I guess it depends on how you define people," Jack joshed.

"Now crispy tubers - one of your favorite snacks..." The Doctor gestured to Rose with a flourish.

"Aka chips, or as Americans call them, French Fries," Jack interrupted.

"Which is strange," The Doctor mused, "because the French call them pommes frites."

"And they're actually Belgian," Rose piped up.

"Anyway," The Doctor gestured wildly to get himself back on track. "Plenty of planets have some sort of tubers cooked until crisp - which I suppose explains why you lot call thin potato slices crisps - and even some sort of beans turned into beverages..."

"Ha! I knew coffee had to be universal!" Rose declared with a smirk.

"But adding beans to the sweet center of a cane-shaped plant and the mammary gland output of bovines to create the unique taste of milk chocolate?" He popped a piece of chocolate from a platter in front of him into his mouth with a delighted grin. "Fantastic!"

This ficlet started out being written for last year's Holiday Gifts for my F-list prompt from clwilson2006, but since I hadn't published any Doctor Who fic in 2009 I decided to turn it into a proper published fic. It's also a nod to nina_ds who got me into publishing DW as it's her birthday this month as well.

The only down side to this fic is that now I've got the theme song to Weebl's Magical Trevor stuck in my head. "...beans, lots of beans, lots of beans, lots of beans..." ;-)

The title is based on the phrase trip the light fantastic, which is oddly apropos since one of the spoilers for this is The Doctor Dances. /grins/

Re: Confession
I do need to get to Donna. I just need to buckle down and get over my loss of Rose and Nine and DO IT! (Preferably before Eleven takes over.)

I'm so glad you enjoyed it and yes, Happy Christmas and Hanukkah to you!

This is adorable.

I love Nine and this was just so easy to picture happening.

A wonderful Holiday present!

Mmm, chocolate, tasty! I really liked how Nine describes the ingredients of chocolate - so scientific :) And the very end made me go awwwww - Nine likes sweet things :) Nice little ficlet, thanks for writing!

Thank you for coming to check out my fic! I really tried to get that outsider's viewpoint of how weird some Earth traditions are. /grins/

Four great tastes that taste great together!

(If nuts and chocolate make trail mix, does this make them TARDIS mix? LOL)
