Flee... the Plague arriveth and it sucketh mightily. I've been in flu-ville since Monday evening and there is no end in sight. I've gone past losing my voice and straight into: Oh sweet Rassilon why are there fire ants in my throat!? New esophagus nao plz, kthxbai.
So... fic please, if anyone's in the mood? I have plot bunnies spawned by my misery and yet not the patience to write them.
I've written the Doctor going mute before, but always as a conscious choice due to emotional trauma. (I don't have my own stock of fic cliches, not at all.) I want to see some other reason for the Doctor losing his voice.
I'll take any length, any character grouping, any Doctor (though Ten is so obvious)... something psychic or psychosomatic or physical or whatever you want as the cause for his lack of voice... humor or angst, hurt/comfort or crack...
(... though, you know me, and right now I'm not even in a good mood. What I really want is a horribly miserable Gallifreyan Flu or a psychic attack so terrible that he screams his vocal cords out, or a freakin' arrow through his throat or something else utterly destructive... and then lots and lots and lots of love and comfort and tea and miserable moments of recovery and happy moments of recovery and... yeah.)
But I'll take whatever I can get. ::looks pathetic, which really isn't hard, because right now pathetic just about covers it::
