Aeryn sat comfortably leaning against John, listening to his steady breathing as they rested in each others' arms. Finally, she sighed, then moved, the leather of her jacket rubbing against leather making a loud noise in the quiet of the room. "I think we should go and try to find the Doctor, John. Surely if they haven't found a solution yet, he can be spared to discuss other things?"

They'd both been reluctant to interrupt the Doctor when he'd started to help translate the books that had been brought in, but Aeryn hadn't really been able to settle yet. "What do you think?"

OOC:Sorry for the late response, been up since 3am and won't be off work until 6pm, so ... I'm a wee bit tired :)


John blinked and looked over at Aeryn as she moved away from him. He sighed and ran a hand through his hair, his mind had been a million miles away and trying to go over a million things at once. "Normally I'd agree with you, babe, but seeing as how they haven't found a solution yet ... and the doctor is up to his eyeballs in working on trying to help them figure it out ... I don't think he's going to want to take a break from it to talk to us." He glanced around and shrugged, lines of worry evident around his eyes. "There's a roomful of people that'd be mighty pissed if we stopped the big problem to focus on just ours"

He turned worried blue eyes to her, "The last thing I want to do is just sit here and wait ... unless you think the two of us together can finagle a repair out of the ship we came in on ..." he shrugged again.

Rose was walking by, getting frustrated at being totally useless right now. She was setting off to see how the people not here were doing when she overheard John and Aeryn mention the Doctor's name.

"Sorry, couldn't help but overhear the last bit of you talkin. Not the most private place. I'm sure the Doctor can help you work on your ship. Jack and Rodney, too. I've seen The Doctor and Jack patch together the oddest things. And the Tardis actually has a bicycle pump as part of the controls. Don't know what he did to the inside." She shrugged. "And if the Doctor thinks McKay is smart, than he's likely one of the top brains on the planet."

"An' the Doctor knows next to nothin' about magic. He's just making sure the calculations Oona's scribbling out add up right. And he can't resist pokin' his nose in and tryin' to learn how it works anyway." Rose shrugged.

"Anything I can help ya with for now?"

John came forward and stood beside Aeryn, close enough that his shoulder was touching hers. A silent show of support, because he knew that she wouldn't appreciate him putting an arm around her. He looked at Rose with a nod, settling his hands on his hips. "Yeah, I was just about to head out to our ship, see if there's anything I can do with it. That's really our best bet for now."

Rose took the picture and cradled it in her hand. "She's beautiful."

She didn't know how the Doctor was going to initially react to what she was about to say, but she knew she was going to be able to talk him into it. Might not even take much with a kid involved.

"Don't worry about the time thing. First, this island is currently six months ahead of outside time. Temporal bubble. Second, our ship is called the Tardis. Time and Relative Dimensions in Space. Not only space travel, but time as well, yeah? She can tow ships at times, or even kind of take them inside."

Materialize around them, anyway, Rose reminded herself.

"We'll certainly help with your ship as much as we can. But since the Doctor already offered to take River back to her time, and we're taking Ripley on as crew... I'm sure he'd be willing to take you back to the time and place you disappeared from."

Rose didn't mention that she'd try to get him to help track down this sweet looking kid, and help them get her back. No need to give that offer til she was certain of it. She knew she could get him to place them back where they belong. It was kinda part of what he did. But aiding in the kidnapping search depended on if he knew what was supposed to happen.

John's look and faint shrug of the shoulders meant 'Up to you' and Aeryn's faintly angry look said 'you're a pain!'

Aww! I love how you and [livejournal.com profile] magicalelf describe their non-verbal communication. :)

OOC: Heh! ~Grins~ Didn't think you'd mind, sis! Nope! Don't mind at all! We work well together, you & I :)


John frowned a little and tilted his head to the side as he listened to Rose explaining about their own ship and everything it was capable of doing. "Whoa wait ... hang on a second, let's back up for just a moment," he said, holding a hand up. "When you say that this place is ... six months ahead of regular time ... you mean ... literally? We're ... literally six months in the future here?"

The thought made him instantly sick to his stomach. Six months. Anything could have happened to P'au in six months. He closed his eyes, trying to gain control of his raging thoughts. "Does ... that mean that everything outside of this ... temporal soap bubble is ... six months in the past?"

He opened blue eyes again to stare hard at Rose. He wanted more explanations than that.

Rose had started to speak now, though and something she'd said caught her attention. "Six months? How long is that?"

John looked away from Rose and over at Aeryn. "Half a cycle," he said quietly to her.

John went to one knee in front of the chair Aeryn was sitting in and reached out to cup her face, needing that connection with her, needing her to see and hear him. He looked into her dark eyes, "We're only frelled if we believe that we are, Aeryn," he said quietly, keeping his voice low and firm. He felt like he was being torn apart on the inside, but he wouldn't let any of that show in his voice. "You're right, I am the mathematician, and I'll work with the Doctor to find out the point in time that we vanished, as closely as I can. I may be off by a couple of days, but that's better than a couple of months," he gave her a small, quirky grin. He leaned in and kissed her brow before pushing to his feet again.

He turned blue eyes to Rose, "When can I talk to him? Mister Man. The Doctor?"
