Title: Best Forgotten
Fandom(s): Doctor Who
Pairing: 10/Donna (friendship)
Word Count: 450
Rating: K
Warnings: None!
Disclaimer: I don't own them! I just borrow them.
Summary: "Meanwhile, this is the seventh time I've brought you home for something--and what is it you forgot, anyway?" The Doctor would really like to know what it is that Donna forgot, though he'll wish he didn't once he does.
Notes: Silly little fill for comment_fic, which I've missed dearly! I'm so excited to have finally written Ten and Donna; I've wanted to for ages. The prompt was mahmfic's 10+Donna - You forgot something else? But you packed so much!

Bonus points if anyone knows where Blargon 7 is from!

"Again? Really?"

The Doctor was like a child, Donna was noticing with impressive frequency lately. He turned a face on her that was like a child who'd been told that no, they had to turn back to go to the house and get Mummy's purse, so it would take just a bit longer to get to the ice cream shop.

"Yes, really," Donna told him, hands on hips. "Come on, Spaceman; it takes five minutes. And afterwards we could be on Blargon 7 five minutes before then."

"Fine," the Doctor all but huffed. "But how did you forget something else? You packed so much!"

"You're nine hundred years old! You can't tell me you've never forgotten a toothbrush or something once or twice? Left it back on Mars?"

"Not from Mars," the Doctor automatically corrected, then frowned. "All right, I may have. Once. But I learned, that's the thing! Forgot it once and haven't been without one since. Meanwhile, this is the seventh time I've brought you home for something--and what is it you forgot, anyway?"

"Lip balm."

"That was the third time."

"Cash."

"That was the fifth, and I told you, I can sonic a cashpoint if you need and then Bob's your uncle; we're on our way."

"You remember every thing you've taken me home to get?"

"I have an excellent memory, Donna."

"Just the other day you couldn't remember which Queen Elizabeth we were on."

"All right, so there's a lot of them; you can't expect me to know the count all the time. You're evading."

"Am not."

"Yes, you are. You don't want me to know what it is you've forgotten."

"Do you have to know?"

"'Course I do. I always need to know just what you're bringing on board, 'case something could interfere with the TARDIS machinery or--"

"I don't think this is one of those things."

"That's just it, Donna--you don't think it is, not you know that it isn't! I'm the only one who can tell you the answer to that, and that's exactly why I need to know."

"All right, but you asked to know."

"I did, so tell me."

"Tampons."

"Sorry?"

"Tampons, Spaceman. You know them. Use 'em once a month, small, cylindrical, you unwrap them and--"

"Blimey, Donna, I know what they're for!"

"Then you know why I need to go home and get them!"

"I'd rather I didn't!"

"Then you shouldn't have asked!"

"So can I make us forget this ever happened?"

"Please!"

Neither of them ever did remember what caused them to get to Blargon 7 five minutes behind schedule, but the TARDIS assured the Doctor he didn't want to, and that was that.

Oh, dear... The things they could've gotten themselves into... Wow... :)

Gotta love it when the Doctor is embarrassed by something. ;D

The Doctor totally has no idea what to do in the face of feminine products, I swear. I've seen people theorize that the TARDIS takes care of those things (brilliant psychic creature that she is) but I sometimes prefer to believe the Doctor has to suffer it out once a month just like every other man living with a woman, LOL. Thank you! :D

Hee - I love when Donna throws the Doctor off balance. :)

I do, too! I imagine she just screwed with him whenever the opportunity arose, LOL. Thank you!

Annnnd bonus points for you! :D It popped into my head totally randomly as I wrote and I was like, "... where did that come from?" and, of course, it's Joey Tribbiani. And thank you for reading (and proving to me that I'm not the only one to have internalized obscure Friends references...)!

LOL I just loved how flustered the Doctor got.

I can't decide who would be more flustered in this sort of scenario, Ten or Eleven. Nine, I feel, would just put on his game face and cope with it. But Ten and Eleven could totally be such children about these sorts of things. ;) Thank you!

Nine would roll his eyes, walk over to the cupboard, and hand Donna the box, daring her to comment.

11 would get all flustery and run out of the room, leaving Donna to deal with it herself.

Only 10, the git, would keep prying until he made himself uncomfortable.

I so agree ten and eleven can be a bit childlike especially eleven but nine would probably just shrug his shoulders and say "typical apes"

He really is quite the idiot, isn't he? When will he learn that, if Donna says it's not important, he doesn't want to know, that he really DOESN'T WANT to know!

Silly prawn!

I don't think he ever did learn, nor will he ever. ;) Thank you!

Ah, yes, that most awkward of conversations. I can just imagine the many colours the Doctor's face would have been as that interchange reached its end. Lovely stuff!

This was great. I love that he actually goes through the trouble of making the TARDIS make them forget. <3 These two crack me up so much!
