The Search for Freya

Who: The Doctor Who cast
What: As the other Travelers prepare to go to Thrymheim, the Doctors and their companions set out to search for Freya.
When: Day 277
Where: The Highwind, the Gate of Fog, and then traveling
Rating: Not likely to go higher than PG-13


They had been preparing for this for weeks now. All their planning and research had been pretty well exhausted, and now that the main group of Travelers were about to leave for Thrymheim, it was time for their little band of travelers to leave as well.

On the bracelets of all the other Doctors, half-Doctors and companions comes a short text message:

It's time to go.

Pack up and meet me at The Highwind near the Fog Gate. It's time to go find Freya.

Lunch is on me.

~The Doctor


When they arrive at the little restaurant they find two large carts being pulled by the odd eight-legged horses of Asgard parked in front and a little off to the side, with the Eighth Doctor sitting at one of the outdoor tables, which has been strewn with various items to make a light lunch before departure.

Eight sets his cup of tea down and smiles as he sees his family (the closest thing to it here, without Susan) arrive and gets to his feet to greet them all.

This is the first time the Sixth Doctor has heard that anyone is going anywhere or finding anyone, but he's going to assume that if it popped up on his communicator, he's invited along. Especially since it was one of his other selves who is doing the inviting. And if he got the invite by mistake... well, he's even more determined to go along, if that's the case.

Finding the meeting place is a bit tricky. It takes a little longer than he likes, because he ends up doing a little accidental sightseeing along the way (he doesn't get lost, period), but he gets there in the end.

The food looks halfway decent, if nothing else. "Hello everyone, sorry I'm late. What's all this?"

Gathering at the Highwind

"So Freya's one of our hosts, and she's...lost? Captured? Don't think I q2uite caught what was going on," this Doctor huffed, looking rather unhappy. He wore a green jacket---definitely not his style, but he couldn't have his original, now could he?

That was important, but he wanted to know what they were expected to do first.

Once he's raided the food table a bit, the Doctor finally settles down, comfortably draped on a chair with one leg crossed over the other. Either people are being slow, or they're fast. Probably the latter, really. They are the Doctor. But they're not in a rush and knowing they're actually going somewhere is enough to make him quite comfortable just looking out across the street and nibbling absently on a pear.

It takes Amy a little longer to get there than the Doctors evidently (and wow, she's still getting used to having to think about him in plurals) so when she turns up she just scours the room for hers. No offence boys, she's just used to this face.

It doesn't take long to spot him and she walks over quickly, poking his shoulder as she looks around at the people gathered there. "So, come on. How many of them are you, then?"

Seriously, tell her, because it's really hard to keep her head wrapped around all of this. She needs names (or rather, numbers) to attach to faces, ASAP.

Gangly Giraffe: check. Mel goes ahead and takes a seat nearby to watch some of the arriving parties do their arriving. And look at that, he eats fruit without so much as a grimace.

She's still trying to figure out why he put up with all that carrot juice when he was younger. So convincingly. Something to ask the technicolor coat about, maybe.

"Ever traveled out this way before, Doctor?"

Like Mel wouldn't be coming right along on getting that message. She can't say she knows all the details of the Freya and Freyr situations just yet, but she knows enough to be firmly on-board with this particular part of things. Getting packed and setting out goes down without a second thought.

On arriving, she's got a broad grin on her face and a fairly light bag over her shoulder. That's the trick to proper over-land traveling, isn't it? Necessities only, whether there's an endless wardrobe nearby or not (she's committed to longer trips with less, anyway). It's nice to not be leaving at the crack of dawn, too. Leaves room for taking more things in on the way instead of just feeling tired.

To make things very brief, the excitement and gung-go attitude are all-too-detectable in at least one traveling companion today: as ever the case is with Melanie Bush.

"Hello!"

Six happens to be looking for her, actually. It's nice to see a familiar face among all the new ones--other than Jamie's, that is.

"Melanie Bush, hello! I see you're prepared for our journey." She's packing more than he is, anyway, though he's not sure how much they really need for this thing. In part because he's still a little in the dark about just where they're going, and he has no idea how long it's going to take them to get there. "Ready to go find a goddess, then?"

Having the ability to run faster than most while in the city does have its advantages, and apparently the practice Jamie's managed to get in has paid off, because once he actually manages to figure out the message he's there quite quickly indeed.

Of course, he heads right for the table and the food, setting the bag with the supplies he's packed to bring along to one side in order to see about having a wee bite to eat before they get going. Seeing that someone's thrown a perfectly good apple away, he bends down to pick that up first, dusting it off on his kilt before taking a bite. It might be a bit bruised, but there's no need to let it go to waste.

"Mm," he comments around bites. "Who are we still waiting for, then?"

Oh, and a relatively familiar face makes his way into the fold. Mel's grabbed herself a stalk of celery, but very happily sets it down for a moment to better wave as he approaches. People are coming in at a bit of a trickle, but that's all well and good. Just a matter of time.

"Hello again, Jamie."

Sometimes it seems the more things changed, the more that they stayed the same. Martha isn't surprised to find that they're going on a mission, and she's packed for it as best she could. With the other group leaving, Martha almost is glad that they have this other quest to do. Not that she was frightened of fighting (Martha Jones was never frightened of that) but because it was doing something to help life rather than take it.

War or no, she didn't relish the idea of being on a battlefield.

True to her form, she didn't carry a weapon, but she did have a first aid kit, food and water, just in case.

The Doctor has pretty much given up asking his other selves for a straight answer at this point. So the only other thing to do was ask the other people in the area... he doesn't recognize most of them, but if they're here they must be future companions or friends... or both, in most cases.

He's just going to introduce himself to as many as he can, starting with the lady standing just over here. Hey there, garish coat and curls coming your way. "Hello! I'm... well, one of the Doctors. Very good to meet you Miss...?"

Jamie, on the other hand, was at least slightly more prepared for fighting, if the dirk in its sheath at his waist was any indication. But he wasn't paying that any mind at the moment, instead much more caught up in watching the Doctors interacting while idly munching on a sandwich.

By the time he turned away, it was with a faintly bemused look on his face - one that lingered for a moment as he noticed someone had arrived. Not anyone he recognized, but if that list Eight had given him earlier was accurate, he had a fair idea who she was anyway. He nodded briefly, then motioned with his head over towards the table.

"Here, if ye want something to eat ye may want to grab something before the Doctors wind up deciding they want to go in for seconds. There'll not be much left if they do."

Yes, excellent, another party member has arrived. It makes Mel about a hundred times happier to be headed out on this mission of reassurance, frankly. Bit tough to track down everybody in Asgard that's traveled with or will travel with the Doctor, when there are so many of them and they're all prone to doing different things. She is most definitely smiling at Martha on her approach and ready to start her grand personal people mission by offering a hand.

"Hello. I'm Mel."

Finally.

Something new. Something to do that wasn't the mundane, every day life that she was growing so utterly sick of. Sure, the company kept it more than bearable, but ... She was tired of staying in the same place. Tired of flitting around the edges of certain people's attention, keeping it that way and finding herself unable to make it past such all at once. It was frustrating beyond belief.

So to find the message (albeit about an hour later than she should have), she's packing her stuff up and heading out just like that. The food will be mostly gone by the time she gets there, but that's not a big deal; she had breakfast. She's just anxious to go. Not only for the break in routine, but to be able to find Freya, the grieving goddess... And help her.

A slice of something is passed into her hand from behind. Banana bread, with just a bit of a kick to it.

"Fresh from Hel's kitchen," the Doctor explains with a cheery grin. He's still missing his jacket, but he's been forced to make do with a far-too-colorful (though not as much as Six's) replacement. Off they go---to cold, to certain doom, and to adventure.

Mel is pretty glad for this side quest type thing, herself. She hasn't been in Asgard quite long enough to feel stagnant, but she also knows that there are quite a few people from the Doctor's life that she hasn't managed to meet yet. And this seems like as good a chance as any. They might just get to help somebody, besides, and that's all the reason she might normally need anyway.

Rose on the approach signals to her, like with most people turning up, a time to wave and approach.

"Good afternoon!"
