Summary: Donna can do more with her hands than type.
Mum was always after her to do something with her nails.
“Why don’t you get a nice manicure, dear, one of those lovely French ones? Pretty hands always catch a man’s eye.”
Donna had long since given up trying to explain that she couldn’t bloody well type with long nails, and no man was ever going to notice her hands anyway. When she found one who did, it wasn’t because she’d covered them in lacquer.
“Aw, that’s brilliant,” the Doctor would say, practically writhing in pleasure.
Turned out she had exactly the right nails for scratching a Time Lord’s back.
