OOC; Again, the last board went nuts and started hurting my eyes, so new board and first post... hope I don't get this wrong...

Date: December 24, 2009
Time: 12:30 pm
Location: A lab somewhere around Cardiff
Characters Involved: The Master, The Rani, Jack sooner or later, maybe Lucy?
Ratings and Warnings: PG-13, subject to change.
Incomplete/Complete Incomplete

Lucy frowned at the monitor in front of her. That woman, <i>whoever</i> she was, was standing far too close to her Master. The looks he was throwing her way were causing a burning sensation to start deep in her stomach, acid churning inside. Face hardening she smoothed her dress down one last time and decided to make an appearance.

Striding purposefully along the corridor, Lucy felt the eyes of Harry's security on her. She was used to the attention now, after a year of fading into the background it was a welcome change to be adored again. Her heels made sharp clicking sounds on the linoleum, the sterility of the hideout somehow fitting to her Master's plans, even if she wasn't allowed to know everything about them. From what she had overheard, and seen, it had something to do with that annoying man they'd had chained up like some cheap ornament last year.

Turning the last corner she walked straight into the room she had just been watching, not bothering to knock, a superior expression on her face.

But her Master wasn't there. The other woman whirled at her entrance, face contorted in annoyance.

"Hello, I'm not sure we've met. I'm Lucy, the Master's wife."

Annoyed contempt at Lucy's interruption was neatly expressed by the curl of an elegant lip. The contempt was further underscored by the Rani's immediate return to what she had been doing before that little playtoy had so arrogantly wandered in. Lucy may belong to the Master, but that won't save her in the long run if she kept up with this sort of attitude.

"I am quite certain we haven't met. I am the Rani, and I am busy."

And damn the interruption that kept her from quasi-sedating Jack so she could take unimpeded samples and brainscans. Were there more infuriating delays such as this, she would have to take out the full force of her rage on the next to thus interfere.

A smirk was given as Lucy entered the room, not because she was there but because of the burst of jealousy from her and then a bout of anger from the Rani. Well, this was interesting.

But also he was tired of everything. So many samples had been taken and now he had scans to do, yet the chains were tight and he wanted the cot that was promised to him. Damn it. "Hey, Lucy," he said with mock-happiness.

The Rani rapped Jack on the head. Not ungently, but it got her point across. "Hold still, or you are going to be all tied up for much longer."
old_boeold_boe on July 20th, 2007 04:39 pm (UTC)
Jack rolled his eyes but he didn't stay still. He'd learned quickly that, unlike the Master, the Rani only did what she needed to do - experiments, and not pain, not threats. He looked over to Lucy and didn't move any other part of his body, just figuring his head would be fine. "You missed the Master by a few hours. Don't think you care much though, right?" Maybe they'd gotten along recently. That would be weird.

The Rani frowned as Jack moved his head and rapped him again, harder this time. "Hold your head and neck still, lest I be forced to use a curare derivative to ensure your motionlessness." A derivative of her own design, of course - one that would garner information on how swiftly Jack returned from poisoning as well as let her get her scans done in peace. Still, she would rather just get her scans done and poison him another time.

As she wanted to return to the peaceful semi-solitude prior, she turned her attention once more to Lucy. "Did you have a reason to interrupt me?"
lucy_a_saxonlucy_a_saxon on July 22nd, 2007 03:05 pm (UTC)
"Other than to annoy you?" Lucy fired the direct question in her most clipped tone, enjoying the flash of anger it engendered. She smiled sweetly, completely ignoring the annoying presence bound to the chair. Quite frankly she didn't care about him at the moment - only the woman mattered, this Rani, whoever the hell she was.

"Yes, actually I did," she continued in her most sing-song voice, the one that she knew drove the Master wild with equal parts rage and passion, testing the water gingerly. "I'm looking for the Master. Care to tell me where he is?"

Minutes passed as the Rani manouvered Jack into the position she wanted him in, minutes in which Lucy was kept waiting for an answer. And minutes more, during which the Rani finally made some of the scans of Jack's brain that she had wanted.

Pausing to give Jack a chance to move before he involuntarially twitched, she finally condescended to give Lucy an answer. Of a sort. "Why would I know? I'm not his wife, am I?"
old_boe: Dustyold_boe on July 23rd, 2007 04:05 am (UTC)
Jack kept silent and watched, but the Rani was being annoying. She was moving him about and prodding him and he just wanted to get in his own room and /sleep/. Damn it. So when an answer that wasn't very helpful was given, he said, "He probably went to see Gwen." It was said with hatred, but it was true. He'd been talking about her non-stop. Why wouldn't he?

"He's out cheating on you." Anything was being said to cause strife between the Master and Lucy. He just wanted anger - anger and resentment. But in the end, he was causing himself to get riled up. Damn.
killermice: on firekillermice on July 23rd, 2007 05:00 am (UTC)
Though she was slightly annoyed at Jack for just blurting that out and spoiling the fun of teasing, the amusement factor in watching the presumptious Lucy react kept her from doing anything to him.

"It is quite possible that is what he is doing, since he was talking about her non-stop." The Rani smirked at Lucy before returning her attention to her scanner. As cranky as Jack was acting, sending him off to sleep would be better for both of them for now. So long as she had enough to start work with, of course.
old_boeold_boe on July 27th, 2007 01:06 am (UTC)
"Non-stop. Blah, blah, blah. Never shut up." Jack glanced towards the Rani and he /was/ cranky. He'd been stuck in the same room, chained to the same chair for over a day. He wanted to be put into a room where maybe he could sleep. "He said I could have a real room. When?" There was no kindness to his words - he just wanted to get out of there.
killermice: on firekillermice on July 27th, 2007 01:34 am (UTC)
"He always did have a bad case of running his mouth. Even back in the Academy." She ran her fingers through Jack's hair absently, almost as though she was trying to soothe him. Or not, as she repositioned his head instead of continuing.

"You get a bed in five minutes if you can manage to hold still for three. Can you manage that?"
lucy_a_saxon: blue melucy_a_saxon on July 27th, 2007 11:47 am (UTC)
Lucy seethed inwardly, deciding that she'd rather cut her own eyes out with a hot poker before letting the Rani know how annoyed she was. So this *Gwen* was one of Jack's friends. It made sense in some sort of twisted way, only her Master could chase after so many women at once, even though she knew he would always come back to her. After all, they were merely pawns in his grand scheme; and none of them knew that better than she did.

Oh there was far more to her than she let others see, especially the woman in front of her now.

Turning her attention to the "Captain" she smiled darkly. It was about time she had some fun of her own.

"So what's your next experiment? I feel in need of some mindless experimentation on my Master's guinea pig." The posessiveness was evident in her voice, not even bothering to hide exactly how she felt about the mention of any other woman taking her rightful place.
old_boe: Dustyold_boe on July 28th, 2007 02:37 am (UTC)
Jack frowned. For her to want to be part of the next experiment meant trouble. He kept his head still but let his eyes move over to the Rani. The agreement was sleep. He wasn't happy. Maybe he could use his Time Lord powers.

Then he looked back at her, being careful not to upset the Rani by moving. If he kept still, he could get out faster. That was the deal. He hoped she listened to deals. "Your Master? He's fucking anyone he meets. I'm next in line." It sickened him, but it'd been an agreement. Him for Gwen. That hadn't exactly worked, had it?

Maybe he was just going to speak to her though. Speaking and touching were two totally different things. But he ignored everything that could get him annoyed and tried to think of things that would upset Lucy - her upset would be great for him. The Rani hated her.
killermice: on firekillermice on July 28th, 2007 06:02 am (UTC)
The Rani operated on autopilot for a minute as she fought down the urge to strap Lucy down to the table for some experimentation in forcing intelligence. How dared she presume that she had any right to be anywhere near proper scientific exploration? Much less denigrate the entirety of the discipline by claiming the urge to do mindless experiments? Oh, the Master will be hearing quite a bit from her when he returns - if he won't keep his concubine in check, then she most certainly will!

Self-control regained by an effort of will, she completed the scans and patted Jack on the shoulder. "My next experiment involves determining how much sleep cheeky boys actually need. This one, by necessity, is a remote experiment."

Since Jack was half a Time-Lord, she did not hesitate to communicate with him telepathically to avoid further aggravation from that wench. Do feel free to take as much time as you actually need to have a proper sleep, once I've seen you to your new room. You earned it.
old_boeold_boe on July 31st, 2007 03:10 am (UTC)
Never would he get used to that. He tried not to jump and instead looked to Lucy, calming himself down quickly. He didn't know how to talk telepathically but he did know he'd take a nap, and then would escape. He'd been given "as much time as you actually need" which meant he could get some rest and then figure out a plan. Otherwise, the need to sleep would ruin his judgment.

Jack just smirked though towards Lucy so he wouldn't seem completely unresponsive. He was winning, all because he was listening and had the 'advantage' of being a Time Lord. He was going to get them against him soon enough.

((OOC: Sorry about the wretchedly long reply-time - I've been having difficult family issues. Should be all right now though.))

The Rani had decided that ignoring the wretched Lucy would be her wisest move. Not to mention it would serve two purposes in not only keeping her own temper, but infuriating that puffed-up little twit. How the Master put up with Lucy was quite beyond her...and was presently not a subject she wanted to make inquiries about.

She released the chains binding Jack to his chair and pointedly gestured him to the door. "Shall we see what room has been set aside for you then?" The guards outside the lab would know where Jack is to be placed, and she would accompany them until he is installed in his new quarters. Useful information, that - and perhaps there would be a chance to install a monitor as well, as she did wish to know exactly how much Jack leaned towards the Time Lord part of himself in the matter of sleep. Would it be four hours, or something much longer?

old_boeold_boe on August 8th, 2007 03:45 am (UTC)
((It's fine. I figured something was up which is why I gave you time))

A nod was given and Jack stood, his joints aching from the chains but headed for the door. He cautiously took a glance out the door before stopping, waiting for the Rani. It wouldn't be wise to go alone.

((We can close this thread if you want since he just goes to a room. Just tell me so I can do a journal post.))
killermice: on firekillermice on August 8th, 2007 07:18 am (UTC)
((Sounds like a plan to me :) Believe this thread is closed now *L*))

The minions, like good minions, had Jack under obvious guard the entire way to the...well, it was a room, and it had a camp cot. Good enough for him.

"I will be seeing you later. In the meantime, sleep well. You'll need every minute."
