A/N: Oops! I’ve left this collection hanging for quite a while. Apologies, I’ll try to get more written for it soon, I’ve just been tied up with my very long Torchwood fic and some less than pleasant events in real life.
Regenerating is full of annoying complications. Bad enough that he gets a new body, with long, gangly, uncoordinated limbs, hair with a life of its own, and a brain that can’t seem to make up its mind about anything, but no one ever warns you about the taste buds.
He’s starving, regenerating takes energy, he needs to refuel, but…
Apples are disgusting, yoghurt is nasty stuff with bits in, bacon is vile and baked beans are just plain bad. As for bread and butter… the less said about that, the better.
Then it hits him: Fish fingers and custard!
