I'm feeling chuffed this morning, since my turn to gamesmaster returned 
last night and I started another Young Timelords adventure.  I managed to 
get various 'aw kewl' and 'WTF!" responses, and successfully managed to 
divert the players from what was nominally their main task (answering a 
distress call) for almost two hours with the giant insects.  It's enough 
to make me feel happy despite the mild throat infection.
So let's share the happy freakiness:

Well, you get get the super intelligent hamsters to help.  They're already 
know for writing fanfics of... dubious historical accuracy.  And as Lady 
Lawful's paramour I'm sure they'll look favourably on casting him as an 
action hero.
(Unless of course, they're currently shipping Lady Lawful with someone else.  
In which case you'll get hamster-written Doctor Developer hatefic.)
