I've written another story. Its called Swimming Pool. Its about the Tenth Doctor going swimming. Its quite short so it won't take long to read. And while you're busy with this post, why not read an old story of mine? Maybe something like Alpha and Friends? You can find all the stories listed in the fan fiction index.
Anyway, so last weekend I was on a field trip. I posted a picture from there in a previous blog post. It was at the picturesque Goat Island. It's a marine reserve. No fishing is allowed so there's lots of fish, many of which are quite big. It's awesome!! But as it was a field trip, our fun was going to the beach and looking at sand hoppers. Also, there was some downtime so i went for a walk, and saw a really cool bird. It's known as a Tui.
Apparently, long ago, there was a problem with worms and other invertebrates on the forest floor. Tane, one of the Gods, asked various birds whether they'd like to be the ones to go down and deal with it. Eventually the Kiwi said yes, and that's how it lost its wings and became universally loved. As punishment for saying no, Tane placed white feathers on the throat of the Tui as a symbol of its cowardice.
