Trying something new with the text. Not sure if it turned out quiiiite large enough.
Anyone else waiting on the news of the new Doctor? I know I sure am.Characters: Ada Archie Katie Mike Rory
Ada is sitting at a table between Rory and Mike
MIKE: AND IT TOOK HIM 3 DAYS TO FIGURE OUT THE CLUES! I WAS WATCHING TV WHEN HE SHOWED UP
ADA: SO WHAT HAPPENED THEN?
MIKE: HE BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF ME. I LIKE TO THINK OF IT AS A MORAL VICTORY
Ada looks concerned.
ADA: BUT YOU WERE ALRIGHT, WEREN'T YOU?
MIKE: SPENT 2 WEEKS IN INTENSIVE CARE, ACTUALLY. BUT IT'S COOL, I GOT TO WORK ON MY POWERS AND MY EVIL SPEECHES
Ada sips her drink pensively. Mike looks a little sheepish for dumping this serious conversation on the new girl.
MIKE (CHANGING SUBJECT SUDDENLY): HEY KATIE, I FORGOT TO ASK - HOW WAS YOUR MARATHON A COUPLE WEEKS AGO?
KATIE: IT WAS GOING GREAT, I WAS ABOUT TO PASS THIS GUY WHO I'M ALMOST POSITIVE IS THE SAPPHIRE SPRINTER
RORY: OOH, I HATE THAT GUY
KATIE: RIGHT, ME TOO. ANYWAY, I'M ON MILE 24 WHEN, APPARENTLY THERE WAS A FIRE OR AN EARTHQUAKE OR SOMETHING. I'VE NEVER SEEN SO MANY CAPES COME FLYING OUT OF OUTHOUSES.
Everyone nods. They seem surprisingly nonchalant about that mental image.
ARCHIE: SO ADA, SHOW US YOUR CHOPS! YOU DUPLICATE STUFF RIGHT? MAKE ANOTHER MIKE, LET'S SEE THEM DUKE IT OUT

Rory puts her arm protectively around Ada's shoulder
RORY: ARCHIE, DON'T BE RUDE. NO ONE IS HERE TO HAVE THEIR POWERS TESTED. BUT UH, THE NEXT ROUND'S ON YOU, ADA. CASH OR VILLAINY, DEALER'S CHOICE.
Ada smiles. A fancy bottle of liquor *BIP*s into existence. Everyone cheers
