untitled band AU not!fic

Work Text:

  • they’re mostly a trock band

    • this is a real-world AU where the Doctor is a fictional character :(

      • Sarah Jane still adopts Luke and Sky and is a badass journalist person who investigates weird possibly alien occurrences

      • Maria still moves away from Bannerman Road, but only across town a little and not to the US

        • Rani moves in and they all become bffs :D

    • they all write the songs, though mostly Rani and Clyde write the lyrics

      • Rani writes a lot of songs about Jenny and Madam Vastra’s epic love

      • Clyde thinks he’s subtle about his giant crush on the Doctor, but he’s fooling no one

        • except maybe Luke, but Luke hasn’t figured out Clyde has a giant crush on him either so he doesn’t count

      • Luke writes most of the music because music is basically maths, right? And he’s GREAT at maths, and things which require a good sense of rhythm

        • ahem

  • they’re mostly only famous on the internet

    • they post videos to youtube, and they’ve got songs up on their bandcamp page

      • people actually BUY them

        • not that many people, but still

          • they are actually kind of famous, Clyde is equal parts bemused and proud

            • it’s mostly because of Luke’s hair

            • and Rani’s face

            • and Sky’s general tiny awesomeness

            • BUT STILL

              • there are totally people who think he’s the best-looking one, I mean, he’s not the typical tortured artist type, he laughs too much and makes jokes all through their shows, but STILL that’s totally appealing to some people, right? Right?

                • Clyde has no idea why Rani and Maria keep laughing at him when he brings this up :(

    • they play random (Doctor-Who-themed?) parties

      • Amy and Rory’s :D :D :D

        • ooh, maybe just all the NuWho companions (and some of the older ones? I don’t know that much about most of them though)

  • they’re all ~seventeen except Sky who is, like, fourteen or something because my little sister is twelve thirteen now, oops, and it would just feel weird

  • positions! (hahahahaha I am so five)

    • Clyde – vocals

    • Sky – lead guitar

    • Luke – keyboards (technically piano, but you can’t really haul a piano around people’s houses and stuff so he makes do with a keyboard unless the place they’re playing has a piano)

    • Rani – bass

    • Maria – drums

    • Sarah Jane – manager (also official Mother of the Band in basically all ways ever)

    • Mr Smith – their ‘touring’ van

  • there are shenanigans

    • maybe an actualfax alien invasion thing happens and the band have to SAVE THE DAY

      • oh wait that’s a thought, I haven’t given them a name yet

        • hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

          • it’ll come to me

      • BUT ANYWAY

      • they totally channel the Doctor and convince the aliens not to kill anyone

        • which they weren’t actually going to do, the wires just got crossed somewhere and they weren’t invading or anything, they were just curious

        • they end up talking to Sarah Jane very very earnestly about interspecies relationships and Clyde is SO DISAPPOINTED that it wasn’t more badass

          • (yep, this would totally be from Clyde’s POV if I ever wrote it wouldn’t it)

          • Clyde totally laments to Luke and Luke is all you’re totally badass to me :) and Clyde grins like an idiot for the rest of the night and Rani and Maria roll their eyes so hard Clyde’s worried they might break something

            • THIS IS SO CHEESY

            • I LOVE IT

    • ooooooh Torchwood totally pays them a visit

      • because croissantkatie suggested it and it would be SO PERFECT

      • except in this ‘verse where the Doctor isn’t actually real, they’d just be this secret organisation which protects us from aliens in general and all that good stuff

        • or maybe the Doctor actually is real... idk, that would be kind of cool but how would it work, argh

      • they turn up at the gig the aliens crashed

      • and the band is all FALSE ALARM THEY’RE TOTALLY FRIENDLY ALIENS :D :D :D

      • and Torchwood are just like, uh, actually, we’re here to talk to you guys

      • and the band are like D: D: D: WE HAVE DONE NOTHING WE ARE BUT INNOCENT CHILDREN

      • Owen rolls his eyes particularly hard because seriously, innocent

        • this is in a pre-everyone-dying-on-Torchwood ‘verse

        • idk I only really watched two episodes of Torchwood

      • Jack is all WHO WRITES YOUR SONGS

      • and Clyde and Rani are like WE DO US YOU CAN TOTALLY LET THE OTHERS GO

      • and the others are just like *unimpressed face* WE ALL DO DON’T LET THEM BE STUPID AND SELF-SACRIFICING

      • so then they all get hauled in for questioning and are kind of intimidated

        • not SCARED never SCARED honestly Clyde is really really really not shaking though he appreciates Rani taking his hand under the interrogation table because hey, hand-holding is nice, especially with girls he totally likes girls

      • and then Sarah Jane busts in all GIVE ME BACK MY KIDS YOU- oh hi Jack didn’t expect to see you here WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THESE POOR INNOCENT CHILDREN

      • and Jack is like, sorry, I just had to check they hadn’t hacked into secret government files or whatever to find about the Doctor, there is sensitive information in those songs you’re writing

        • and then what she actually said sinks in and he’s all WAIT WAIT THESE ARE YOUR KIDS????????

        • and Sarah Jane is all YUP though technically only Luke and Sky are legally mine BUT THEY’RE TOTALLY MY KIDS YOU HAVEN’T HURT THEM HAVE YOU

          • Sarah Jane: *fierce stare*

          • band: ♥_______________♥

      • and then Jack is all oh sorry and lets them go, telling them he likes their music and they should totally play a gig at Torchwood HQ or something

        • and Sarah Jane is like STOP FLIRTING SERIOUSLY THEY ACTUALLY ARE INNOCENT CHILDREN

        • or maybe she wouldn’t shout quite that much but still

    • OTHER THINGS HAPPEN

      • POSSIBLY THINGS WHICH RESEMBLE AN ACTUAL COHERENT PLOT, IDK

  • THE END
