I can't sleep tonight, Doctor... tell me a bedtime story?
”Once,” the Doctor said quickly, as though he’d been itching to tell this story for years, “there was a tiny little Ladybug named Lady. And Lady was a happy ladybug — all six legs, seven spots on her wings. But one day, one day, as she was crawling around that big white expanse of a home of hers— something weird happened. Something very strange. Because this little ladybug had set up shop in a very small cup, or a mug - something those big human people like to drink out of, because apparently just licking the water wasn’t good enough for them.
”And suddenly, it was raining. Not the ordinary raining, either - this wasn’t water coming down in very lethal droplets, for a ladybug. Oh, no. This was milk — boiling hot milk, a thousand times hotter than the ladybug had ever felt anything before, and it was mixed with this weird sugary taste like — like chocolate. And before Lady could do anything about it the cup was filling, and filling, and filling, and she was swept, swept, swept away by the hot chocolate pouring down on her and the best thing she could do was keep her tiny little head above the surface and try to deal with the pain… until finally it stopped, and she was floating on the surface with weak little coughs, screwing up her little eyes and trying her hardest to beat her wings to try and escape, but it was too wet and too hot and she couldn’t.
“And then there was the marshmallow.
“Now, Lady didn’t expect to be saved. In that moment she was completely sure she was gone and she couldn’t do anything about it except lower her head into the burning hot chocolate and let her little lungs flood with what wouldn’t even count as a droplet of hot chocolate. Just as she did that, just as she put her head under… her antennae brushed up against something. Something solid. Something… floating.
”She was saved!
“And to this day, Nonnie, to this day, little Lady is still sailing around on this big cup of hot chocolate with all of the world on the horizon, using this gooey mush of a marshmallow as a liferaft because it’s the only solid thing she had to hold onto. And the world’s not this plain expanse of white anymore because now she can see over the rim and the whole universe is out there, just waiting for her to see it, and she has every plan of doing so.
”Lady is an explorer, Captain of the Marshmallow Ship in the Chocolate Sea. And it was worth a little bit of fright to get there… wasn’t it?”

What were you going to say to Rose?
“Ohhhh, me and Rose Tyler…. I would never’ve stopped talking, really.”
”Probably a good thing I left when I did, I would’ve bored the both of us to death.”

//HAHAHHAHA HELLO! I’m following everyone in my ‘ic’ tag that I really enjoyed RPing with! I’ll be replying to our rp soon, love, just let me finish going through my RPs… <3
If we roleplay:
1. Don’t apologize for being late/slow with replies.
2. Take all of the time you need. Days, weeks, months, doesn’t matter. Don’t put yourself under stress because of such pointless things.
3. Your personal life out of character along with your health are the most important. If you drop a thread/conversation/whatever, it’s alright. Just stay safe and take care.

Hey, I'm a bit curious about something law-related. (This is Sith Armstrong, by the way). Anyway, This is probably a stupid question, but does Australia also use a common law system (when a decision made by a judge in court has precedent and is considered mandatory authority without being in any law books, statutes, constitutions, etc.)?
//Of course! We have both common law and case law (there’s a bit of a difference, but it’s small and most people don’t get it, so I won’t go into it). Some areas of law are almost completely decided by case law, too — look at contract law, for instance: aside from the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, it’s almost entirely unregulated aside from the precedent.
It’s worth noting, though, that the precedent in Australia is only binding if the decision was made in a higher court in a similar-fact scenario. If you can distinguish the case as significantly different to the case suggested as precedent, then that precedent may not apply. But that’s a very difficult thing and, you know, generally people don’t really try to distinguish, when it comes to precedent, unless the case is PARTICULARLY important.
Precedent made in a same-level court will be considered highly influential, but not binding. Similarly, any obiter dicta or dictum made by a higher court is not binding, as it isn’t ratio decidendi, but if it’s from a higher court then again, it can be highly influential.
Lower-court decisions are not binding for similar cases that come before higher courts, though they may be considered.
