Chapter 9 is going to be a bit late, so here are a few deleted scenes...I liked both of them and they made up the bulk of Chapter 5.  Anyway, both of these take place after the proverbial poo hits the fan, when Braxiatel and Donna shut down the Citadel over office supplies.  Both of them slowed the plot down considerably.

this first scene is between Maggie and Ada.  There isn't much 'grown up' interaction between the two of them, and I think I'd like to revisit their friendship in later fics.  No matter how strong a friendship, it can't be unaffected by the difference in power between the two.  (It also means I have to post the fic that introduces their friendship.)


Deleted scene #1 )

This next scene was in the TARDIS Graveyard that was mentioned in passing by Ada the next morning after she comes and tells them that it isn't safe for either to be on Gallifrey.  Now, in early drafts of "Spiegel," Margaret was pregnant.  That story arc got cut out early, since it didn't mesh with anything else and was too dependent upon continuity from "Mykonos." I think Vardan, being a sensitive, modern alien, would experience couvade, but it came out as too comedic for this fic.  The brevity of it didn't do justice to the awe, terror, wonder, and fear that new parents experience, and I didn't want to fall into the trap of so much baby!fic. 

I liked the scene in the Graveyard, and I thought it summed up post-war Gallifrey.  But I think the final version of chapter 5 flows better in the context of everything that happens after.

Deleted scene #2 )
