    Summary

    Alison Cheney joined the Doctor aboard the TARDIS because she wanted to explore history and see new worlds. Her recent mind invasion by both the Shalka and a stone vampire has, however, taken its toll. She has been plagued by headaches, dizzy spells, and flashbacks. Once a barmaid skilled in dealing with all sorts of disruptive weirdos, she now avoids unpredictability and adventure by staying inside the ship.

    A mission from the Time Lord Council to the planet Terripluvium challenges Alison's sense of safety. The Doctor must mediate between the Agricole and the Schuaschen, a species bred by the Agricole, who are now fighting for their independence. But the Doctor, incapacitated by allergies, lies unconscious in the Zero Room, recovering.

    Alison has no interest in diplomacy, but her impulsive kindness to a Schuaschen puts her at the center of the conflict. Now completely out of her depth, she has only one person who can help her: the Doctor's robot, a sadistic master of mental manipulation, whom she cannot bring herself to address by name.

    Summary

    Alison Cheney, a Black British woman in her late 20s, joined the Doctor on their TARDIS, along with their robotic "inevitable spouse" [whose name she's not saying ever], to escape the endless bullshit power plays on Earth. Sure, she negotiated a companion contract with the Doctor and their partner, and now they're getting along rather well, but not all aliens know how to respect fellow people. Unfortunately, bullshit is apparently a universal phenomenon, as she discovers when she's mind-fucked not once, but twice, by aliens in her first month with her two new companions.

    Now Alison, who has been trained up from her earliest days to be a fighter, feels overwhelmed and out of her depth, especially since that recent attack by a psychic vampire. The Doctor rescued her and the robot, but there's something significant that they're concealing. Gathering what remains of her toughness and curiosity, Alison goes on a quest for answers. She makes friends with the robot, learns more about his odd relationship with the Doctor, and wishes only that someone might hold her fast and keep her safe.

    saved this snippet but forgot to note whose idea it was (6_6)
    if you remember, please let me know!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    "Really, my dear Doctor... were they all out of normal cats? Or were you just naturally drawn to the one with the most brain abnormalities?"
    “Alison chose it. But it's a perfectly good animal, for a cat!”
    She didn't tell either of them that she'd chosen that particular melancholy creature because it reminded her of the Doctor.

    Summary

    "I'll ask you once more," the Doctor demanded, jabbing a finger at the man in black, "how can you possibly be here at this moment?"

    "More importantly," said the man in black bemusedly, studying the other man in black, standing silently off to the side, calmly observing what was going on, "how can THAT possibly be here at this moment?"
