Buffy Summers, Tenth Doctor

Buffy wants some psychic paper.

Challenge: #101 - Paperwork

The Doctor took a leather wallet out of his inside jacket pocket and flipped it open in front of the guard. "Inspector General," he said. "We're here to inspect your ducts."

"Our ducts?" the guard said. "We don't have any ducts."

"Ducts, pipes, vents, all of the above," the Doctor asserted. "They all need to be inspected. Now!"

"Yes, sir!" The guard opened the door and they went through.

Buffy skipped alongside the Doctor as he waved his sonic screwdriver about.

"I want some," she declared.

"You want what?"

"Some psychic paper."

He flipped the wallet open. The paper inside was blank except for one word: "No."

"If you can change that to 'yes', I'll consider it."

"No fair!"

"Perfectly fair," he said. "Psychic paper would be no good to you if you can't control it properly. Consider it a test."

Buffy pouted. "I hate tests."

"A competition with a prize?"

Buffy glared at the paper. The "No" wavered a little and then changed to "Not yet." She transferred her glare to the Doctor. "You did that on purpose!"

"You might get it with practice," he said. "Now is not the time. We have a nest of Flugelraptors to catch."
