It was shut down after a near catastrophe, but we still store most of our anti-matter in here, although now we strive to use it for humane purposes only,” Zane explained. The Doctor nodded as he looked around. “It must be nice. No longer being under the control of the government, I mean.” (1/2)
“Definitely. We can now focus solely on advancements for the betterment of mankind without the tradeoff of also making bigger, deadlier weapons for the government. We can create a better tomorrow now for the whole of humanity.” A manic grin crossed the Doctor’s face. “Quite right, too! You know, I’m feeling a bit peckish. Know any good restaurants?” (2/2)

By the time it’s done, it’ll dwarf CERN’s.” “Well, that does sound interesting—” “And there’s this new project where we’re testing the FTL drive again for deep space exploration using unmanned probes. We’re still having some issues with communications, though, if you want to have a look. I mean, you are the Doctor.” “I’m sure I could spare a few hours—” (1/3)
“Great! Oh, and don’t worry about lodgings. We have a new B & B in town that’s got plenty of space. Although, it’s not bigger on the inside. I hope that’s not a problem.” “No, no, that’s okay. Rose and I—” “Fantastic!” “Zane, don’t you think we should go back. I mean, it’s been hours—” “Really? Doesn’t feel like it has.” (2/3)
“Yes, well, I’m sure Jo and Rose are wondering when we are coming back and—” “Oh, no worries. I cleared my entire schedule for today! Come on, there’s a few more labs I want to show you.”“…okay.” (3/3)
Groaning and banging my head on the table. I just read the first chapter of Sip of Darkness and realized how horribly I messed up. I contradicted myself so much in this story as I wrote the chapters — I just am speechless. I knew a few chapters ago, I was having issues but thought I resolved them. Now I can see the problems stretch back to chapter 1. I am very very sorry. I try very hard to make sure things make sense.
Such an important lesson - it’s always a good idea to have an outline to refer back to so you don’t go stepping on your own self made canon. I’m going to try and go through and fix it so everything matches and makes sense. I’m just so mad at myself right now.
I was making good progress on this chapter until I read chapter 1. Now I have to stop and go back and edit 8 chapters and hope I can make sense of everything.
