Doctor Who Drabble: Priceless

Title: Priceless
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: River Song.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 230: Bauble / Babble / Bobble at dw100.
Spoilers: The Husbands Of River Song.
Summary: If River is going to get her hands on this particular diamond, she’s going to need some help.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

The Halassi Androvar is perfect, flawless, priceless beyond belief, the most valuable diamond in the universe. All other diamonds, indeed all other gems of any kind, pale into insignificance beside it, mere baubles, worthless trinkets, insignificant bits of shiny mineral. River should know; she’s seen, stolen, and owned enough of them.

She’s never owned this one though, not yet, and her fingers itch because it’s so close and yet so far, lodged inside the equally insignificant brain of her ‘husband’. She’s supposed to return it to the Halassi, but…

First, looks like she needs a surgeon. Heads don’t remove themselves.

The End


Great drabble
Thank you!

They are a girl's bestfriend. Or should I say woman's bestfriend?
Diamonds! Meh! Give me clear quartz or Apophyllite any days. Diamonds sparkle, but I find them soulless. I prefer semi-precious stones to those deemed precious. I have inexpensive tastes *grins*

Thank you!

I guess Marilyn Monroe is on her own in this one. Well if you don't want it, you can pawn it for your precious stones.:)
LOL! I don't need to, I have hundreds of semi-precious gemstones, and they cost a lot less than diamonds!

I can't argue with that.:)

Pearls aren't glamorous either when you know the specfics.
True, lol! I let my sister have mum's. I got the opal ring.

My mum is put off pearls for life!

I have an opal card. Which is basically my public transport card.:)
*grins* I don't blame her!

Not the same thing, but a lot more practical! LOL!

I'm not much of a jewellery person anyway. I'll stick to my watch.

Very practical. I forgot it at home when my brother drop me off whist going out. I had to buy a spare one. Railway staff wondered how I left without it. Excuse me for having a brother who gives me a lift in his car.:)
I like my earrings, although most of the time I only have studs in, and I never go out without a load of crystal bracelets and usually a pendant. I don't wear rings much though, they get in the way and I have very thin fingers.

It's easy to forget stuff. I once cycled to the shops, locked my bike, and ten realised I didn't have the key to my bike lock. I had to phone mum to bring it.

I use to wear silver rings as a teenager. Sometimes I wear a ring, bracelet or necklace to compliment a look. Usually I forget to do so.:)

Lucky you could still call your mum.
Yes, that was many years ago when she used to get around on her moped.

It's hard to remember to put on jewellery most of the time, if you're not used to wearing it.

I've only been a passenger on a scooter.

Yeah, I don't have the discipline for it. Could you imagine me with a wedding ring.:)

I think wedding rinds are supposed to be worn all the time. I'd never get used to that!

I haven't even done that. I cycle or I drive my car.

Well, I don't have to worry about that at the rate I'm going. That could be my excuse for why I'm not loved up yet."I don't do rings".*being silly*

I have to go for my learner's license again. I still remember how to drive. I need to practice parking and updating myself on the new knowledge test.

It's as good an excuse as any ;)

If I had to take the driving theory part of the test now, I think I'd fail. So much has changed since I learned to drive. Good luck when you get around to it!
Very true.:)

Thanks, it's not my driving skills that I'm worried about. It's those who don't follow the road rules that I'm more concerned about.

Using public transportation is less pressure since you only have to be worried if you're late.

That's true enough - we always have to watch out for idiots on the road whether we're walking, cycling, or driving.

I don't trust anyone but myself to follow the road rules. Some pedestrians take that "I have righter way, no matter what" mentality too far.

You can't know for sure if a driver can stop their vehicle on time either.
It means I'm very careful whether on foot, on my bike, or in my car. Everybody else is an idiot.

It really is ridiculous how careless some people are on the road. It's beyond impatient.*shakes head*
I stopped for a school crossing guard this morning, halfway across a side street, and a car coming out of that road weaved its way around the front of my car because the driver couldn't face the 30 second wait! Moron!
I hate how they don't give a damn about other people's livelihoods.

That's why expensive fines are put in because apparently people can't stand to lose money. They put it above risking lives. Which could include their own.

Even then, there are those who really are psychologically incapable of being behind the wheel even with a license.
It's hardly surprising there are so many accidents on the roads when there are so many idiots behind the wheel. It's the law that you have to stop for school crossing guards.
Of course people can die because of these idiots. I knew of a child being killed because someone didn't obey the speed limit at a school zone.

Incidents like this are unacceptable! I wish I could do something more than be angry with this issue.*frustrated*
Same here. I just don't understand why perfectly sensible people turn into idiots as soon as they get behind the wheel of a car.
