[Doctor Who: uncertainty principles]

Title: Uncertainty Principles
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 4592
Notes: As...promised? threatened? this carries on vaguely from Mendelian Inheritance and Resonance Structures -- having covered biology and chemistry, I felt duty-bound to write something about physics, even though this one contains fewer metaphors and more dialogue. The linguistics, however, remain untouched. If I start one about maths, SHOOT ME.

Yes, the physical concepts raised by the subtitles are all referenced in the subsequent vignettes, because I'm a crazy person who did too much science in high school and now hangs out with too many academic physicists.

This is for Aria. I suspect she knows why.
